Ayurveda & Arthritis. The ancient Ayurvedic texts describe two basic types of arthritis that correspond with osteoarthritis (Sandhigat Vata) and rheumatoid arthritis (Ama Vat). It is important to remember when considering any disease from an Ayurvedic perspective, that it is not just the disease that is treated, it is the person. Every person is treated as a unique case, and many variables are taken into account to ensure that a treatment program is specifically tailored for them as an individual. Having said that, lets take a look at the disease states of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis from an Ayurvedic perspective. In Ayurveda, osteoarthritis is considered a disease of malnutrition that tends to affect vulnerable joints (due to previous injury or infection, congenital reasons, etc). However, as with all disease, to find the root cause of osteoarthritis, we first must look at the processes of digestion, or Agni. When Agni (the ‘digestive fire’ ) is not working properly, wastes or toxins known as Ama are produced instead of useful nutrients for the tissues. These toxins accumulate in the gut and at the same time, Vata (Air/Ether) accumulates in the colon. Causes of Vata aggravation include: Eating excessively cold, dry, rough, bitter, astringent or pungent foods (including an excess of raw foods) Irregular schedules or meal times Excessive traveling Constant multitasking and rushing around High stress or high anxiety jobs or situations Lack of sound sleep Excessively cold or dry environments A physically or mentally traumatic event Extreme grief, change or shock Taking drugs Excessive stimulation and movement Aggravated Vata, along with Ama (toxins), move from the gut into the channels of circulation, find places in the body that are weak or vulnerable (in this case the joints) and settle in. The qualities of Vata, and this particular type of Ama, have a catabolic/drying effect that causes deterioration of the soft tissues in the joints and eventually the bones. At the same time, Ama can block the channels, supplying nutrients to the joints causing further malnutrition. The deterioration and subsequent irritation in the joint causes inflammation, stiffness, swelling and pain. In Ayurveda, rheumatoid arthritis is seen as a disease of toxic accumulation and immune malfunction. In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, there is a very high level of accumulated Ama (hence the name), and in many cases, a considerable amount of excess heat (or Pitta). This Ama, combined with aggravated Vata and Pitta moves into the channels of the body and begins to affect Ojas (the vital essence of the tissues and the body-mind’s strength and immunity). This causes Ojas to become depleted and its qualities are changed. At the same time Ama blocks the channels and prevents the production of Ojas, depleting it further. This is the basis of autoimmune-disease. Ojas begins to function incorrectly and, along with Ama, causes the inflammatory responses, swelling and pain that we recognize as rheumatoid arthritis. Causes of Pitta aggravation include: Eating excessively heating, fried, stimulating, pungent, sour or salty foods and drinks (including red meat, fermented foods, alcohol, coffee, chilli, acidic foods) Exposure to excessively hot or humid environments Not eating when hungry Living with highly irritating situations Excessively heating exercise Excessively hot showers Excessive exposure to anger Violence, conflict and highly competitive situations Things that deplete Ojas: Excessive sexual activity Overwork Stress Physical trauma (such as a severe car accident) Psychological trauma (such as excessive stress or intense grief) Vigorous exercise beyond your capacity Things that deplete Ojas : Excessive sexual activity Overwork Stress Physical trauma (such as a severe car accident) Psychological trauma (such as excessive stress or intense grief) Vigorous exercise beyond your capacity Ayurvedic Arthritis Treatment : This is where Ayurvedic arthritis treatment and Western Medicine protocol differ dramatically. If the condition is particularly chronic or severe, Ayurvedic arthritis treatments can greatly reduce its debilitating effects or help prevent it from getting any worse. If it’s nature is medium-level chronic, Ayurveda can help to reverse the disease process, leading to a state of remission. In many cases, Ayurveda can actually offer a cure. Because the disease process is very well understood, Ayurvedic arthritis treatments can be applied that effect change at the root cause of the disease. In both cases of arthritis, strengthening Agni and removing Ama is the immediate concern. Without this, any other treatment will be of little effect. This is achieved by following a special diet that allows the Agni to become stronger and the body to begin eliminating excess toxins. In fact, vast improvements can be made in terms of inflammation, pain, swelling and stiffness just by diligently following the correct diet.
SKIN ALLERGY Irritated skin can be caused by a variety of factors. These include immune system disorders, medications and infections. When an allergen is responsible for triggering an immune system response, then it is an allergic skin condition. Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema) Eczema is the most common skin condition, especially in children. It affects one in five infants but only around one in fifty adults. It is now thought to be due to “leakiness” of the skin barrier, which causes it to dry out and become prone to irritation and inflammation by many environmental factors. Also, some people with eczema have a food sensitivity which can make eczema symptoms worse. In about half of patients with severe atopic dermatitis, the disease is due to inheritance of a faulty gene in their skin called filaggrin. Unlike with urticaria (hives), the itch of eczema is not only caused by histamine so anti-histamines may not control the symptoms. Eczema is often linked with asthma,  allergic rhinitis (hay fever) or food allergy. This order of progression is called the atopic march. Allergic Contact Dermatitis Allergic contact dermatitis occurs when your skin comes in direct contact with an allergen. For instance, if you have a nickel allergy and your skin comes in contact with jewelry made with even a very small amount of nickel, you may develop red, bumpy, scaly, itchy or swollen skin at the point of contact. Coming in contact with poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac can also cause allergic contact dermatitis. The red, itchy rash is caused by an oily coating covering these plants. The allergic reaction can come from actually touching them, or by touching clothing, pets or even gardening tools that have come in contact with the oil. Urticaria (Hives) Hives are an inflammation of the skin triggered when the immune system releases histamine. This causes small blood vessels to leak, which leads to swelling in the skin. Swelling in deep layers of the skin is called angioedema. There are two kinds of urticaria, acute and chronic. Acute urticaria occurs at times after eating a particular food or coming in contact with a particular trigger. It can also be triggered by non-allergic causes such as heat or exercise, as well as medications, foods, insect bites or infections. Chronic urticaria is rarely caused by specific triggers and so allergy tests are usually not helpful. Chronic urticaria can last for many months or years. Although they are often uncomfortable and sometimes painful, hives are not contagious. Angioedema Angioedema is swelling in the deep layers of the skin. It is often seen together with urticaria (hives). Angioedema many times occurs in soft tissues such as the eyelids, mouth or genitals. Angioedema is called "acute" if the condition lasts only a short time such as minutes to hours. Acute angioedema is commonly caused by an allergic reaction to medications or foods. Chronic recurrent angioedema is when the condition returns over a long period of time. It typically does not have an identifiable cause. ALLERGY IN AYURVEDA According to ayurveda allergy is nothing but intolerance or decresed skin immunity, in ayurveda allergy comes from external factor but it can affect one of the individual only if it's overall dosha's are imbalanced, for skin allergy full body detoxification or dosha balance is very important factor and we can achieve it primarily by doing ayurvedic panchakarma therapy, along with ayurvedic medicines described in the ancient literature. At akshay arogyam we treat skin Allergies by scientifically proven ayurvedic treatments for skin developed and described in the charaka samhita and astanag hridayam.
Virechanam Virechana therapy is a type of Panchakarma treatment. Here, person is made to undergo controlled purgation for a specific amount of time. It is designed to flush out body toxins. Liver detox, colon detox etc. procedures that are quite famous now-a-days are derivatives of Virechana therapy.Purpose of Virechana- Virechana treatment is targeted to expel increased Pitta Dosha out of the body. When Pitta dosha gets increased, it causes certain types of diseases – such as abscess, liver disorders, gastritis etc. If the extent of Pitta increase is less, then oral medicines can be given to suppress it. But if it has increased to a large extent and if it has moved from its natural place to other places, then it needs to be expelled out of the body. By expelling it out, the disease gets cured, often completely. Since Pitta is situated at the level of intestines, expelling it from the anal route is very easy. Hence, Virechana treatment is designed. To expel it out, first the Pitta Dosha needs to be forcefully brought from the extremities and different organs into the intestines, and then purgation is induced, to expel it out completely. Effect on Tridosha: Virechan treatment is indicated in High Pitta conditions – like skin disorders, blisters, abscess, liver disorders etc. Pitta associated with Kapha, where Pitta is the dominant Dosha, as in certain types of vomiting, acid peptic disorders etc. Pitta associated with Vata, as in case of gout.
HAIR LOSS OR BALDNESS & AYURVEDA Hair loss, also known as alopecia  or baldness refers to a loss of hair from part of the head or body.Typically at least the head is involved.The severity of hair loss can vary from a small area to the entire body. Typically inflammation or scarring is not present.Hair loss in some people causes psychological distress. Common types include: male-pattern hair loss,  female pattern hair loss,  alopecia areata, and a thinning of hair known as telogen effluvium.The cause of male-pattern hair loss is a combination of genetics and male hormones, the cause of female pattern hair loss is unclear, the cause of alopecia areata is autoimmune, and the cause of telogen effluvium is typically a physically or psychologically stressful event.Telogen effluvium is very common following pregnancy. Less common causes of hair loss without inflammation or scarring include the pulling out of hair, certain medications including chemotherapy,  HIV/AIDS,  hypothyroidism, and malnutrition including iron deficiency.Causes of hair loss that occours with scarring or inflammation include fungal infection,  lupus erythematous,  radiation therapy, and sarcoidosis.Diagnosis of hair loss is partly based on the areas affected. According to ayurveda causes of hair loss are mainly due to imbalances in Dosha (vata, pitta & kapha), Mal nutrition, blood impurities, consumption of more acidic food, wrong food habits etc At akshay arogyam we treat hair loss according to the prakruti of the patient, dooshya and dosha samprapti of the patient, by doing metabolic correction and blood purification along with providing rich nutrition to the hair.
Jaundice and Ayurveda Jaundice is a condition where the skin and the whites of the eyes changes to yellow color. Allopathy does not consider it to be a disease but a symptom of liver disorders like liver infection, gallstones and cirrhosis of liver. In Ayurveda, Jaundice is known as Kamala. Causes Increased intake of oily, spicy, sour, salty, alkaline, alcohol, and sesame oil cause Pitta aggravation. The aggravated Pitta then impairs the blood and the muscle tissue of the liver, causing blockage in the channels of the liver and thus Pitta (in the form of bile) is thrown back into the blood leading to discoloration of the eyes and skin. Sleeping in the daytime, excessive physical work, overindulgence in sexual activity, suppressing the natural urges of the body, and psychological factors like lust, fear, anger, and stress can also be causative factors in cases of Jaundice. Symptoms : Drowsiness Weakness Fatigue Yellowish discoloration of the eyes, skin and nail Flatulence Lack of appetite Burning sensation in the body Low-grade fever Indigestion Excessive thirst Loss of libido Ayurvedic Jaundice Treatment Ayurvedic treatment of Jaundice involves balance in body dosha and restoring the function of the liver and increase the flow of bile in the bile duct, by using ayurvedic panchakarma and ayurvedic herbal medicines. Digestion is also restored with the help of a customised diet plan to ensure good metabolism.
