'urinary tract'
Kidney stones or Renal calculi are solid masses made of crystals like calcium, uric acid etc. Kidney stones usually originate in your kidneys. However, they can develop anywhere along your urinary tract, which consists of these parts: • kidneys • ureters • bladder • urethra Kidney stones are one of the most painful medical conditions. Ayurveda defines kidney stones as Mootra Ashmari which is caused by Vitiation of all the 3 doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha with a predominance of Kapha dosha. Causes: • Sedentary lifestyle • Doing excessive physical work without proper hydration or water intake • Kapha prakopak Aahar like excessive intake of Sweets, Cakes, Pastries, Chocolates, etc • Excessive intake of refined flour i.e Maida (pizza, bread, cakes, biscuits, Khari, butter, toast etc) • Diet high in meat, poultry and fish • Less consumption of water • Suppressing the urge to pass urine Symptoms: • Nausea • Vomiting • Acute pain in the flanks radiating towards urethra (from back to front) • Fever with chills might also be associated • Bleeding through the urinary tract • Urinary urgency or frequency • Burning sensation while urinating Treatment: At Ved Clinic we aim to get rid of the kidney stones permanently without surgery. Ayurvedic Kidney stones treatment involves - • Detailed consultation and prakriti analysis to know the cause • Detoxification process like Vamana (therapeutic vomiting) to remove excess Kapha and Basti (Oil and decoction enema) to channelize Vata. • Ayurvedic diuretics and stone dissolving and crushing herbs in the form of Kadhas, churnas and tablets • Rasayana or Rejuvenation treatment to strengthen the urinary system • Home remedies to avoid recurrence • Diet and Lifestyle changes are advised.
Allergic Rhinitis Allergic Rhinitis or commonly called as allergic cold is reaction of our body to a particular allergen which your body is sensitive to. These allergens could be small dust particle, pet hair, molds, pollen, smoke particles etc. The inner lining of the nose comes in contact with the allergens, gets inflamed and starts reacting with it. Our immune system produces a certain chemical called as histamine. Histamines start the process that hustles those allergens out of your body. This causes sneezing which helps in throwing those allergens out of the nasal passage. Another defense mechanism of our body is secretion of watery mucus to prevent the entry of allergens in our respiratory tract. According to Ayurveda, Allergic Rhinitis can be compared to Vataj Pratishyay (Vataj type of cold). Chronic allergic Rhinitis can be compared to Vata-Kaphaj type of pratishyay. Improper digestion leads to formation of Ama, which disturbs the formation of Rasa dhatu leading to manifestation of Pratishyay. Causes: • Wrong food combinations or Virruddha aahar like milk with sour and salty foods, honey and ghee in equal quantities, fish with milk, ice creams after night meals etc. • Drinking water while sleeping • Drinking water immediately after exposure to sun • Swimming immediately after coming from sun • Eating cold foodstuffs like ice creams, or things kept in refrigerator • Curd, sweets, cakes, pastries, chocolates etc • Seasonal changes Symptoms: • Extensive sneezing (mostly early morning) • Blocked and congested nose • Watery discharge from nose • Itching or irritation in Nose, throat and eyes • Fever • Cough • Tears in eyes Treatment: Ayurveda provides a holistic approach in treatment of allergic conditions like these. Panchkarma treatment provides Purification and cleansing of the system therby removing all the doshas responsible. 1. Vamana: Therapeutic emesis is given according to the condition of patient. Vamana removes all the accumulated Kapha in the chest, and upper respiratory tract. 2. Nasyam: Few drops of specially prepared Ayurveda herbal oils are instilled in the nostrils of the patient for 7-14 days continuously. This clears the sinuses, and improves the immunity of the respiratory tract. After Panchakarma treatment, Ayurvedic medicines are administered to improve respiratory immunity and strength of upper respiratory tract, and also improve digestion.
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.
