Looking for 24hour heartburn protection??? Why fear when Ved clinic is here... Gastritis (Acidity as it is commonly referred to) is an inflammation, irritation, or erosion of the lining of the stomach. It can occur suddenly (acute) or gradually (chronic). Ayurveda attributes the problem of gastritis to increase in Pitta dosha and diminished digestive fire. This is due to following reasons- • Excessive intake of sour, salty and spicy foodstuffs • Eating leftover food • Excessive intake of bakery products • Stress • Ratri jagran or sleeping late night or working in Night shifts • Alcohol consumption • Chronic pain killer medicines or steroids • Excessive intake of tea or coffee • Drinking excessive water early morning on empty stomach Symptoms: • Upper central abdominal pain • Nausea • Vomiting (may be clear, green or yellow, blood-streaked or completely bloody depending on the severity of the stomach inflammation) • Belching or heartburn • Bloating • Early satiety or feeling of fullness • Loss of appetite • Unexplained weight loss Gastritis Treatment: We at Ved clinic aim at curing Gastritis permanently by following protocol: 1. Panchakarma procedures like Vaman( therapeutic vomiting) and Virechana (therapeutic purgation) 2. Internal medicines to control the pitta production and maintain its quality 3. Medicines to improve Agni or digestive fire 4. Dietary changes are advised 5. Lifestyle changes are advised 6. Home remedies to control gastritis.
Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that means “five actions” or “five treatments”. This is a process used to clean the body of excess doshas which can cause or are causing diseases. Normally the body has the ability to efficiently process and remove these vitiated doshas. However, due to faulty diet patterns & lifestyle, the digestive enzymes and agnis which regulate the body’s internal metabolism become disorganized. This can lead to the accumulation and spread of toxins (vitiated doshas) throughout the body resulting in disease. Panchakarma will remove the excess doshas and correct imbalances in them out of your system through the body’s own organs and channels of elimination (colon, sweat glands, lungs, bladder, urinary tract, stomach, intestines, etc). Panchakarma purifies the tissues at a very deep level. Panchakarma not only helps in treating the diseases but also helps in preventing them. Panchakarma is a five-fold therapy; it is highly individualized based on the needs of the individual depending on the Ayurvedic constitutional type, doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, immune status, and many other factors. Depending on each individual’s needs, all or only parts of the five therapies are utilized. 5 treatments: 1. Vamana 2. Virechana 3. Basti 4. Nasya 5.

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. Symptoms: • Indigestion (dyspepsia) • Abdominal pain • Nausea • Flatulence • Pain at the anus while defecating • Heaviness of body • Lack of appetite • Acid eructation (belching) Treatment: Ved Clinic provides a holistic approach in the treatment of constipation. • First a detailed consultation with our experts is done to know the root cause of the disease. • Detoxification or Panchakarma treatment: Basti treatment is advised to get rid of the excessive Vata accumulated in the body.

Hypothyroidism : Hypothyroidism is a clinical condition which results due to inadequate production of thyroid hormones for prolonged periods or resistance of the peripheral (body) tissues to the effects of thyroid hormones. According to Ayurveda, Thyroid gland is primarily under activity of Agni ( Bio-Digestive fire) of our body. Agni at cellular level is inhibited by multiple reasons leading to diminished metabolism in the body leading to Hypothyroidism. As multiple systems are involved in the impairment related organs also show diminished functions in this condition. A subdued Kapha under the influence of vitiated vata is primarily responsible for impaired body functions. Common Symptoms :  Fatigue  Weakness  Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight  Coarse, dry hair  Dry, rough pale skin  Hair loss  Cold intolerance (you can't tolerate cold temperatures like those around you)  Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches  Constipation  Depression  Irritability  Memory loss  Abnormal menstrual cycles  Decreased libido Treatment: Ayurveda provides a holistic approach in treating Hypothyroidism. Ayurveda aims at detoxifying the body at the tissue level in the form of Shodhana which is done through Panchakarma. Following Panchakarma procedures are carried out in Hypothyroid Patients. 1. Vaman: A therapeutically induced vomiting capable to clear all blocked body channel which is primarily indicated for diseases especially in the Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) region. The subdued Kapha dosha is responsible for slowing down of the metabolic activity in the body. Vaman removes the excess Kapha from the body thereby clearing the obstructed hormonal axis. Also Thyroid gland is located in the neck, which is the prime site for Kapha dosha. 2. Virechan: In this loose motions are induced to clear all the blocked channels. However Virechan is more helpful in fluffiness of the body which is developed by the vitiated Vata and Kapha. 3. Nasya: Nasya is instillation of specifically prepared herbal oils in the nostrils in specific quantities. It helps clear the excess kapha accumulated along the hypothalamus pituitary Thyroid axis as it is mentioned in Ayurveda – “Nasa (Nose) is the entrance for head”. Any disease related to upper part of chest can be effectively managed with the help of Nasya. External therapies like Shirodhara, Takradhara, Udwartanam, Shiro Lepam, are also carried out according to the symptoms of Patient. Along with the detoxification procedures internal medicines are also given to rectify the vitiated Vata and Kapha. The medicines are in the form of Herbal Decoctions (KADHA), tablets, and some tried and tested churnaas (fine powders). Dietary advice to regulate the bodily doshas is also an essential part of treatment. Request you to consult the ayurveda physician for an in-depth body (Prakriti) analysis and precautions to be undertaken.
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. So, Stay healthy and rejuvenated this monsoon with benefits of Ayurveda. Please inbox us for any further information.
