Acute Pain Management & Ayurveda Pain is defined as a highly unpleasant physical sensation caused by illness or injury. No matter however mild the pain is anywhere in the body it lands you in a state of discomfort and affects your routine activities. Pain can be of differentiated as 1) Throbbing pain as in toothache. 2) Spasmodic pain as in painful menses (dysmenorrhea). 3) Colic pain as in renal stones etc. Pain at any site and origin like Joint pain, Muscular pain, Headache, Abdominal pain, back pain, neck pain etc. is addressed by the use of NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs) either in Oral Or Topical Form. However persistent use of these NSAID has led to various complications ranging from abdominal discomforts like Nausea, Vomiting to severe complications like Ulcers etc. Ayurveda connects the root-cause of Pain to aggravated Vata in the body. Vata is associated with movement. Any obstruction in the path of Vata, aggravates it further leading to Pain. There is a common belief that Ayurveda fails on the modern parameters of management of acute pain and then Ayurveda medicines should be /are to be consumed in chronic illnesses and it always gives very slow results. If correct observations are made on the limit of aggravation of Vata with its site, Origin and systemic involvement, Ayurveda can be equally component to eliminate the root of Pain instantly. Following are some Ayurveda treatments which help in relieving the pain. 1. Snehan: Snehan or Oleation is of 2 types – External and internal External Oleation involves application of warm Herbal Medicated Oil either on the whole body or limited to an area. For eg. If a patient has knee joint pain Janu Basti is done to the affected knee joint in which Specially prepared warm herbal oil is poured over the knee joint and retained inside the black gram paste boundary for the required duration (max 45 mins). Similarly Neck Pain is managed by Greeva Basti; Lower back pain is managed by Kati basti. These procedures are carried out not only to relieve the pain but also to strengthen the musculature around the particular affected joint. Internal Oleation is intake of medicated ghee or oil. 2-3 tsps of medicated ghee is generally given to lower down the vitiated vata. 2. Swedan: Swedan or Sudation can be localized or for the complete body. There are various types of swedan like • Nadi sweda – Steam generated from herbal decoction is given through pipe. Generally given for localized pain, swelling. • Peti Sweda – Patient is asked to sit in steam box for few minutes. Generally given for full body pain, Muscle pain, or before Panchakarma procedures. • Pottali sweda or Kizhi – It uses herba/ choornam/Navra rice tied in a muslin cloth to make small herbal boluses (potlis). These boluses are then heated and lightly pounded over the body or specific parts of the body as needed. It provides dry or wet heat for aggrevated Vata & Vata-Kapha conditions. It is useful in treatment of osteoarthritis, Spondylosis, muscular cramps, swelling etc 3. Basti Ayurveda Scriptures mentions Basti as half treatment of any Vata related disorder. Similarly Modern medicines also acknowledge the rectal route as the fastest for drug administration. So any medicine given through intestines will get absorbed quickly. Ayurveda mentions the lower abdomen as the seat of Vata thereby; Basti given through intestines will act as a corrective measure for the vitiated Vata thereby reducing the Pain caused by it. There are 2 types of Basti which are given. • Anuvasan Basti or Sneha Basti – Oil Enema • Kashaya Basti – Decoction or Kashaya Basti. These are given in a specific order (as decided by the Ayurvedic Physician) for 8, 15 or 30 days depending upon the Patient and severity of Vata or the Pain. 4. Agni karma Agnikarma employs the usage of a pointed metal rod which is subjected to heat on its far end. This heated area is then brought in contact with the sore area of the body for a friction of a second. The contact transfers the heat to the affected area causing vaso-dilatation (increased blood supply) which reduces the pain instantly. However number of sittings required and points are decided by the Ayurvedic Physician. However utmost care and precautions needs to be undertaken to avoid scalding and other serious injuries. Ayurveda has mentioned the best possible remedies for instant and chronic pain management. However the focus has to be in determining the complexity involved with the reach of the underlying conditions.Should the Ayurveda physician be able to pinpoint the Origin and Site of Pain, Involvement of overlying systems and the resulting aggravation of Vata, Management of Pain would not a difficult issue. We at Ved Clinic focus on understanding the cause leading to the discomfort and hence are able to deliver results in a shorter span of time.

DYSMENORRHEA Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for pain with menstruation. Menstrual pain which interferes with daily activities is called as dysmenorrhea. There are two types of dysmenorrhea: "primary" and "secondary". 1. Primary: Primary dysmenorrhea is common menstrual cramps that are recurrent (come back) and is not due to other diseases. Pain usually begins 1 or 2 days before, or when menstrual bleeding starts, and is felt in the lower abdomen, back, or thighs. Pain can range from mild to severe, can typically last 12 to 72 hours, and can be accompanied by nausea-and-vomiting, fatigue, and even diarrhea. 2. Secondary: Secondary dysmenorrhea is pain that is caused by a disorder in the woman's reproductive organs, such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or infection. Pain from secondary dysmenorrhea usually begins earlier in the menstrual cycle and lasts longer than common menstrual cramps. What causes the pain? In Primary type, Menstrual cramps are caused by contractions (tightening) in the uterus (which is a muscle) by a chemical called prostaglandin. The uterus, where a baby grows, contracts throughout a woman's menstrual cycle. During menstruation, the uterus contracts more strongly. If the uterus contracts too strongly, it can press against nearby blood vessels, cutting off the supply of oxygen to the muscle tissue of the uterus. Pain results when part of the muscle briefly loses its supply of oxygen. In secondary type the pain is associated with underlying causes like • Endometriosis - A condition in which the tissue lining the uterus (the endometrium) is found outside of the uterus. • Pelvic inflammatory disease - An infection caused by bacteria that starts in the uterus and can spread to other reproductive organs. • Cervical stenosis - Narrowing of the opening to the uterus. • Fibroids (benign tumors) - Growths on the inner wall of the uterus. Symptoms: • Pain in lower abdomen and pelvis (sometimes radiating to thighs and lower back) • nausea and vomiting, • diarrhea or constipation, • headache, • dizziness, disorientation, • hypersensitivity to sound, light, smell and touch, • fainting and fatigue Ayurvedic view: Ayurveda attributes any type of pain to Vata. Apan vayu (a sub type of Vata) moves in the downward direction. It carries out the function of excreation of urine & stools, childbirth and menstruation.Any obstruction in its path causes vitiation causing pain in its territory i.e lower abdomen. Treatment: Allopathic treatment consists of NSAID’s (Pain killers), or hormonal birth control pills. These give side effects such as acidity, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weight gain, disturbed menstrual cycle etc. Ayurvedic treatment includes: • Panchakarma procedures like Basti. As we all know Basti is the best treatment for Vata disorders. Sneha basti (oil enema) and Kashaya basti (decoction enema) are given to give proper channel to vitiated Apan vayu. • Internal medicines to relieve the pain • Dietary and lifestyle changes • Yoga and exercises.

Inability to completely evacuate the bowels or passing very hard stools is known as Constipation. Although constipation is often looked upon as a common problem, if not treated or if Constipation treatment is delayed, it can lead to further problems such as fissures, fistulas, piles, lack of appetite and indigestion. In Ayurveda, constipation is compared to Vibandha. The main reason for vibandha is disturbed agni or digestive fire which leads to production of Aama or undigested food. This causes obstruction in Annavaha strotas or digestive channel leading to further vitiation of Vata dosha. Vata dosha causes dryness in the tract and causes hard stools leading to constipation. There are a set of symptoms that help standardise the diagnosis of constipation .These criteria help physicians to better define constipation in a standardised manner. Bristol stool chart is as follows:- Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass); also known as goat faeces - SEVERE CONSTIPATION Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy - MILD CONSTIPATION Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface - NORMAL Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft - NORMAL Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges (easy to pass) - LACKING FIBER Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool - MILD DIARRHOEA Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces, entirely liquid - SEVERE DIARRHOEA Ayurveda has advocated Mala Parikshan. If the stools are floating in the water they are normal but if they get submerged, they are made up of Aama or undigested food. Causes: • Incorrect food habits • Excessive intake of refined flour (Maida) in the form of bread, biscuits, cakes, toasts etc • Excessive intake of aerated drinks • Lack of fiber in food • Poor intake of water • Sedentary lifestyle • Controlling the urge to pass stools or gases.

Varsha-rutu(Monsoon) & Ayurveda The aroma emitting from the soil , the tiny droplets hanging on to leaves, the thundering sound of the rain, and the wind in the air… Yes we are talking about Monsoon or Varsha Rutu. Monsoon not only brings changes in Mother Nature but also in our body. Vata, Pitta, Kapha are the 3 vital forces which regulate our body. Vata is responsible for conduction of the nervous system, blood circulation, musculo-skeletal movements of our body and also elimination of waste products from our body. Pitta regulates the digestion and metabolism in our body. Kapha governs the mucous secretion and lubrication of our joints. The atmospheric changes in Monsoon or specifically Varsha rutu lead to vitiation of Vata in our body. Also there is increase in the Amlata or acidity in the nature and hence in our body. This results in diminished bio-digestive fire (Agni). Vitiated Vata along with reduced Agni results in imbalance leading to diseases. Following are the diseases caused to vitiated vata. • Gastric upset in the form of gases, Abdominal bloating, loss of appetite, constipation • Chronic constipation leads to Piles and fissures in anal region. • Muscular pain and body ache. • Knee pain (Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis) • Low back pain (Lumbar Spondylosis, PID, Sciatica) • Neck pain (Cervical Spondylitis) • Menstrual abnormalities like Dysmenorrhea, Irregular menses, Scanty menses, PCOD, Fibroids etc • Paralysis and other degenerative changes related to Nervous system. • Skin ailments like Psoriasis, Dry skin etc. These growing incidences of ailments due to accumulated vata and disturbed Agni needs to be pacified with intake of medicines, proper diet and lifestyle modification. The excessive doshas should be eliminated through the body (detoxification) with the help of Panchakarma. Ayurveda texts recommend specific Shodhan therapy (detox program) as per the season for everybody. This is a part of Rutucharya (Seasonal regime) – • Vaman(Clinically induced emesis)in Vasant rutu. • Virechan(Purgation therapy) and Raktamokshan(Bloodletting) in Sharad rutu. • Similarly Basti in Varsha rutu . Basti in Monsoon is advised not only for diseased but also for healthy people so that they remain healthy. Importance of Basti – Acharyas describe “Basti is half of the medicinal therapy, or even the complete treatment.” Charak- Sid. Ch. 1 verse 39 As per Ayurveda the intestines are the main seat of Vata in our body. Also modern science says that rectal route is the fastest route for drug administration. So any medicine given through intestines will get absorbed quickly. So Basti given through intestines will act as a corrective measure for the vitiated Vata. There are 2 types of Basti which are given. 1. Anuvasan basti or Sneha Basti – Oil Enema 2. Kashaya Basti – Decoction or Kadha Basti. These are given in alternate manner or in a specific order (as decided by the Ayurvedic Physician) for 8, 15 or 30 days depending upon the Patient and severity of Vitiated Vata.
