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.
Diabetes & Ayurveda Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic insufficiencies in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar) for a considerable period either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond to the available insulin adequately, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience A) Frequent Urination (Poly-uria) B) Increased Thirst (Poly-Dipsia) C) Increased Hunger (Poly-Phagia) Diabetes in general term is referred as “Prameha” in Ayurveda. However Ayurveda further elaborates Prameha based on 3 main types and 20 Sub types. Chronic Diabetes Mellitus can be broadly referred as Madhumeha based on the presenting symptoms and associated complications. According to Ayurveda the following are the causes of Prameha. • Lack of Exercise • Sedentary lifestyle • Excessive intake of Milk and Milk products like Paneer, Cheese , Curd etc • Excessive intake of Meat, Fish etc Prameha is mainly caused due to vitiation of Kapha dosha (from above reasons) leading to derangement of Pitta and Vata as well. Also increase in Kapha dosha causes increase in Kleda (Aqueous) and Meda (Fat) in our body. Due to which there is increase in frequency of urination (kleda is excreted out by urine) and obesity (Meda). Symptoms of Diabetes: ● Blurry Vision ● Skin Infections ● Burning of palms and soles ● Increased hunger ● Excessive Thirst ● Sweet taste to mouth etc. ● Wounds that take time to heal ● Unexplained extreme fatigue ● Excessive urine formation and frequent urination Treatment: Ayurvedic line of treatment iscustom-made based on individual’s constitution and considering the Prakriti of patient with Dosha predominance. Other factors like hereditary, food habits etc. are also considered to prepare a specific line of treatment. Usually, Type1 Diabetes patients or Insulin dependent Diabetes is advised “Bruhana”(Body building)medication and diet to increase dhatus in body. Panchakarma is not advised to such patients. Diet is also considered as a kind of medicine in Ayurveda as each food has certain qualities to affect the doshas in certain ways. In Type 2 Diabetes, Purification of body or Shodhana is advised by Panchakarma method depending on predominance of doshas. E.g. patients with Kapha dosha are advised Vamana(emetics) and patients with Pitta dosha are advised Virechana (purgation) Panchakarma treatment and those with Vata predominace are advises Basti (Enema). Internal medicines also play an integral part. Ayurvedic medicines not only lower down the blood glucose level but also improve our metabolism making muscles more receptive towards glucose. These medicines if taken regularly lower down the doses of Allopathic medicines to a greater extent thereby reducing side effects of those medicines. However proper thought and in-depth analysis of the patient’s body constitution has to be analyzed before deciding upon the treatment regimen. Dietary changes are advised according to the prakriti of the patient. Exercises are a must for the patients of diabetes as exercising improves absorption of glucose by muscles. External therapies like Udwartanam, Abhyangam, Pinda sweda are carried out in various complications of diabetes.

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. Sneha basti or oil enema alternating with along with Kashaya basti or Decoction (Kadha) enema is advised for a duration of 7 to 14 days depending on severity. • Ayurvedic medicines to pacify Vata are given • Ayurvedic medicines to improve digestion are advised • Ayurvedic medicines to get relief from constipation and hard stools are given • Dietary advice • Lifestyle changes • Yoga for constipation and gases
ACNE /PIMPLES Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms. Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules are all types of acne. Causes: Your skin has tiny holes called pores which can become blocked by oil, bacteria, dead skin cells, and dirt. When this occurs, you may develop a pimple or “zit.” If your skin is repeatedly affected by this condition, you may have acne. However there are many causes of getting acne like, • Pollution • Stress • Faulty lifestyle like late night sleeping or night shifts, excessive use of cosmetics etc • Faulty Dietary habits like excessive intake of fatty foodstuffs like chocolates, cakes etc • Hormonal changes • Certain medication like steroids, birth control pills etc Ayurvedic view: Ayurveda refers acne as “Yuvanpidaka”. Yuvan means adolescents and pidaka means pustules or papules. The primary cause is impairment of all the three doshas, predominantly the pitta and kapha dosha, which further vitiates the rakta and meda dhatus (blood and fat tissues). According to predominance of doshas acne are classifies as Vataj, Pittaj & Kaphaj types. Small blackish acne are of Vataj types. Big, red swllen papules are of pittaj type. Big, pus filled acne are of Kaphaj type. Symptoms: • Whiteheads • Blackheads • Pimples Treatment: Allopathic treatment includes anti-inflammatory medicines, vitamin A derivatives, Antibiotics and local antiseptic creams. However ayurvedic treatment is holistic. Because acne is deep-rooted, use of local creams, antibiotics and lotions only masks the symptoms. Ayurvedic treatment includes: 1. Detoxification or Panchakarma treatment. Vaman or therapeutic Vomitting is induced to get rid of excessive Kapha dosha. Virechana or therapeutic purgation (loose motions) is given to remove excessive pitta dosha from the body. 2. Internal medicines to remove rakta dushti.(blood purification). 3. Local lepa application to prevent scarring and black marks. 4. Dietary changes 5. Lifestyle changes. All the treatments should be carried under strict medical supervision only.

What is Dermatitia or Eczema? Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a group of diseases that results in inflammation of the skin. These diseases are characterized by itchiness, red skin and a rash. In cases of short duration, there may be small blisters, while in long-term cases the skin may become thickened. The area of skin involved can vary from small to the entire body. What Are The Types of Dermatitis Or Eczema? There are several types of dermatitis such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, seborrhoeic dermatitis and xerotic dermatitis. Each type has specific symptoms; however, there are certain signs that are common for all of them, including redness of the skin, swelling, itching and skin lesions with sometimes oozing and scarring. 1. Atopic Dermatitis This is an allergic disease believed to have a hereditary component, and often runs in families. While the condition may occur at any age, it typically starts in childhood with changing severity over the years. Itchy rash is particularly noticeable on head and scalp, neck, inside of elbows, behind knees, and buttocks. 2. Contact Dermatitis Contact dermatitis can be of two types, allergic or Irritant. Allergic dermatitis results from a delayed reaction to an allergen, such as nickel, copper etc. Irritant dermatitis results from direct reaction to a detergent, such as sodium lauryl sulphate. 3. Xerotic Eczema Caused due to excessive dryness to skin, xerotic Eczema worsens in dry winter weather. It mainly affects limbs and trunks. The itchy, tender skin resembles a dry, cracked, river bed. This disorder is very common among the older population. 4. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis A condition sometimes classified as a form of Eczema that is closely related to dandruff. It causes dry or greasy peeling of the scalp, eyebrows, and face, and sometimes trunk. Ayurveda describes Eczema as “ Vicharchika”. It is caused due to vitiation of all the three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. This vitiation makes the Rakta or Blood impure and hence the disease.

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.

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.
