Ayurvedic Skin Types From the Ayurvedic point of view, the activities in the human system are controlled by the three biohumors called “doshas” – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Any disturbances in one or all of them can cause disease. The skin is also classified according to these biohumors. Vata skin is generally dry, thin, cool to the touch, easily dehydrated, and is very vulnerable to the influence of dry windy weather. Pitta is mostly the Fire element, so the pitta skin type tends to have more breakouts, photosensitivity, and less tolerance to hot food and fieriness in temperament. Pitta skin looks ruddy and is warm to the touch. Pitta skin types tend to be more prone to freckles and moles than the other skin types. Kapha dosha is predominantly Water and Earth, so Kapha skin tends to have these qualities – it can be greasy, thick and more tolerant of the sun.it is oily, and texture and tone of the skin is in good condition most of the time.

Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin.These skin patches are typically red, itchy, and scaly.Psoriasis varies in severity from small, localized patches to complete body coverage. Injury to the skin can trigger psoriatic skin changes at that spot, which is known as the Koebner phenomenon. There are five main types of psoriasis: plaque,  guttate,  inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic.Plaque psoriasis, also known as psoriasis vulgaris, makes up about 90 percent of cases.It typically presents as red patches with white scales on top.Areas of the body most commonly affected are the back of the forearms, shins, navel area, and scalp.Guttate psoriasis has drop-shaped lesions.Pustular psoriasis presents as small non-infectious pus-filled blisters.Inverse psoriasis forms red patches in skin folds.Erythrodermic psoriasis occurs when the rash becomes very widespread, and can develop from any of the other types.Fingernails and toenails are affected in most people with psoriasis at some point in time. Psoriasis is generally thought to be a genetic disease that is triggered by environmental factors.genetic factors predispose to psoriasis.Infections and psychological stress can also play a role.Psoriasis is not contagious.The underlying mechanism involves the immune system reacting to skin cells.According to ayurveda psoriasis has many causative factors like unhealthy diet, stree, heredity etc. Acharya charaka told in charaka samhita about various causative factors along with external factors responsible for psoriasis.at akshay arogyam we give best ayurvedic treatments for psoriasis by using our self prepared in house herbal medications.
Eczema-Skin disease in ayurveda according to ayurveda, different types of eczema have different vikalapa samprapti. generally eczema is a kapha dominant condition with srava oozaing as the main feature. it is somewhat similar to vicharchika. the presence of kandu, pitaka, syava varna & lasika are supporting this view. acute eczema is kapha dominant but when it becomes chronic there vata domination. the presence of fissures, cracks in chronic eczema justifies the involvement of vata with rukasha & parushata. The vyadhi avastha of eczema is very crucial in diagnosis and management. In atopic eczema there is impairement of vyadhikshamatwa with special involvement of dhatusara. twaksara is affected as a consequence of alteration in vyadhikshamatwa. agni seated in kostha will lead to diseases in shakha like twak with the involvement of altered vyadhikshamatwa. due to kapha association eczema generally has a chronic course. kapha is manda and chirkari in nature. at akshay arogyam we treat all types of this ezema with ayurvedic herbal slef prepared medicines along with required panchakarma treatments.
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.
SKIN The biggest blanket, the widest barrier and the strongest Warrior skin represents the inner health and outer beauty of an individual. skin forms a self replacing multifunctional covering over the surface of the body which isolates it from the environment. the large number of cell types and functions of the skin and its proximity to the numerous potentially damaging stimuli in the environment results in a large number of skin diseases each of the various cell types that it contains can go wrong and develop its own degenerative and neoplastic diseases.
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.
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.
