Panchakarma Therapies

BAMS, MD (AM) , Panchakarma, Yoga
Ayurveda, Gurgaon

Hi, I am Dr Sowmya Nair and I am an Ayurvedic physician with more than 13 years of experience in Ayurvedic treatments. I am specialised in Ayurvedic therapies. So, today I am going to speak about Panchakarma therapies.

In Ayurveda, Ayur means "life" and veda means  "science". IN Ayurveda, we are treating patients according to the doshas i.e. vaat, pitt and cough. If a person has any imbalance between the vaat, pitt and cough then they will suffer from diseases. In order to balance the doshas, we are doing Panchaklarma therapies.

Panchakarma means 5 karmas. It is the main treatment in Ayurveda. Panch means "five" and karma means "treatment". There are

  • Vamana
  • Virechana
  • Nasya
  • Basti
  • Rakta moksha

These are the main treatments in Ayurveda. With these therapies, our body will be healthy and it helps in maintaining all the doshas- vaat, pitt and cough.

  • For problems like- sinusitis, chronic sinusitis, psoriasis, we do Vamana therapy.
  • Virechana is a loose motion therapy. In the pitta problems also we do Virechana therapy.
  • Nasya is the main treatment for the sinusitis, allergic rhinitis related problems.
  • Basti is the main treatment. It cures all the vada related diseases. LIfestyle diseases liek spondylitis, cervical spondylitis, lumbar spondylitis, slip disc cases, multiple psoriasis. In this, we are giving medicated decoction and medicated oil through anal route.
  • The last is the Rakta moksha. It is a blood ducting. It is a Kerala therapy and it is a Leech therapy. Leech therapy is very good for all pitt dosh related problem and skin related problems.

Nowadays the slip disc and osteoarthritis are very common. In osteoarthritis, there is degenerative changes in bones. If it affects your neck, it is called cervical spondylitis. If it affects your back, it is called Lumbar spondylitis. If it affects your knees, it is called ankylosing spondylitis. Osteoarthritis of knees are very common now a days.

How to prevent Osteoarthritis of knees?

  • Maintain your diet. Avoid eating junk food and oily food in order to maintain your body weight.
  • Do regular exercises. Do walk and yoga asanas to help preventing Osteoarthritis.
  • Maintain the right postures

If slip disc affect the neck, you will have pain and numbness. If it affects the cervical, you will get cervical pain, neck stiffness, neck pain. If it affects the Lumbar region, then you will have difficulty in movements and pain in both the legs. For such problems, we have excellent treatment in Ayurveda.

Treatments-

In Osteoarthritis problems, we are doing janu basti, janu pichu, abhyangam, elakiri, podikizhi. All these treatments are very good to cure Osteoarthritis.

If it is cervical disc related problem, then we give greeva basti, greeva picchu, nasyam are very good for this problem.

We treat Lumbar disc related problem with Kadi basti, kadi picchu, abhyangam.

These are the main treatments for all the diseases.

For more information, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you.

Common Cancers In Women - Ways They Can Be Managed!

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, Diploma in Tuberculosis and Chest Diseases (DTCD)

Common Cancers In Women - Ways They Can Be Managed!

With the modernization of all economies around the world, one health hazard that has become one of the largest perils within both developed and developing nations is the incidence of cancers of the female reproductive system, especially cervical and breast cancer.

Breast cancer

Breast cancer is the formation of malignant tumors within the breast tissues of a woman. Usually, breast cancer affects women in the age range of 40 to 50, but there have been many reports of it occurring earlier. About 48 % percent of the Indian women having breast cancer have been reported to be under 50. This is an almost 17 percent jump compared to figures 25 years earlier.

Alarming Signs of Breast Cancer:

  • The most common symptom of breast cancer is a new lump or mass. A painless, hard mass that has irregular edges is more likely to be cancerous, but breast cancers can be tender, soft, or rounded.
  • Swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt)
  • Skin irritation or dimpling
  • Breast or nipple pain
  • Nipple retraction (turning inward)
  • Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
  • Nipple discharge (other than breast milk)

Screening Guidelines for Breast cancer:

  • Mammography: US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends mammography once in every 2 year for females between age group 50-75 years. Women with a family history has a benefit of starting at age 40 years. After 75 years there are insufficient evidence of benefit of screening mammography.
  • Breast Self Examination and annual Clinical examination: breast self examination is easy to learn and and any abnormality should be reported to the oncologist.
  • For High Risk/ Genetic risk factors: screening should start by age 25 or 10 years earlier of youngest relative affected. Annual mammogram and MRI or Doppler ultrasound alternating at 6 month interval can be considered.

Treatment Options:

Some of the common treatment options for breast cancers are:

  • Breast conservation surgery - This is where the tumors are removed without cutting out too much of the surrounding breast tissue.
  • Mastectomy - If the cancer has spread too far then large amounts of breast tissue has to be removed along with the tumor to stop its spread any further.
  • Sentinel lymph node Biopsy - it's part of both surgical procedures, it decreases morbidities of lymph node dissection first draining lymph nodes only are removed in patients with clinically negative axilla. If negative on frozen section further axillary dissection is avoided. It avoids the morbidity of complete axillary clearance.

Cervical cancer ( Carcinoma Cervix)

Cervical cancer is the cancer of the cervix, which is the opening of the uterus and connects the uterus to the vagina. Indian women in particular are susceptible to cervical cancer as more than 1/3rd of the cervical cancer related deaths in the entire world happens here in India, which is about 74000 deaths annually. The leading cause for cervical cancer is HPV or Human Papillomavirus infection, which if left untreated and unchecked will result in cancer.

Alarming Signs of Cervical Carcinoma:

  • Early lesions and precancerous lesions have no symptoms
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding such as bleeding after vaginal intercourse, bleeding after menopause, bleeding and spotting between periods or longer/heavier periods
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Pelvic pain
  • Late stage disease may cause lower extremity swelling, problem with urine and/or stool passage

Screening Guidelines:

  • Cervical cancer screening is most effective screening programme of any cancer disease resulting in significant decrease in mortality from carcinoma cervix
  • United state preventive services task force (USPSTF) recommend cervical cancer screening starting at age 21 yrs.
  • Between age 21-30 years cytology recommended at 3 year interval and HPV testing is not recommended.
  • Between 30-65 years cytology every 3 year or cytology +HPV testing every 5 year.
  • If previously adequately screened screening can be discontinued after 65 years.
  • Women with prior total hysterectomy and no CIN can discontinue screening.

Apart from breast and cervical cancers, certain other cancers have also reported an alarming increase such as:-

Ovarian cancer (Carcinoma Ovary)

Starting in the ovaries, diagnosis of this type of cancer is usually delayed due to lack of visible symptoms in the initial stages. About 85% to 90% of ovarian cancers are epithelial ovarian carcinomas. Epithelial ovarian cancers tend to spread to the lining and organs of the pelvis and abdomen (belly) first. This may lead to the buildup of fluid in the abdominal cavity (called ascites). As it advances, it may spread to the lung and liver, or, rarely, to the brain, bones, or skin. The main treatments for ovarian cancer are surgery and chemotherapy.

Cancer of the endometrium (Carcinoma Endometrium)

Endometrium is the lining of the uterine wall and has along with ovarian, uterine and cervical cancer is also increasing in occurrences throughout India and the world.

The grade of an endometrial cancer is based on how much the cancer forms glands that look similar to those found in normal, healthy endometrium.

  • Grade 1 tumors have 95% or more of the cancerous tissue forming glands.
  • Grade 2 tumors have between 50% and 94% of the cancerous tissue forming glands.
  • Grade 3 tumors have less than half of the cancerous tissue forming glands. Grade 3 cancers tend to be aggressive and have a poorer outlook than lower-grade cancers.

Treatment Options:

Cervical cancer along with Ovarian, uterine and endometrial cancer can be treated using the following methods:

Surgery: Radical Hysterectomy primarily preferred option for early stage disease. Both open and minimal invasive approaches are suitable.

  • For precancer high-grade lesion conisation is also an option for compliant patient.
  • In young suitable patient willing for childbearing trachelectomy is also possible in a very early lesion.
  • Depending on risk factors after surgery adjuvant treatment may be advised.

Radiation Therapy for Cervical Cancer

The two types of highly targeted radiation treatments are combined with chemotherapy to treat advanced-stage cervical cancer.

The radiation oncologists deliver high radiation doses to cancerous cells in the cervix, while sparing healthy tissue. By focusing the radiation directly on the tumor, these therapies are designed to reduce the risk of common gastrointestinal and sexual function side effects associated with radiation therapy for cervical cancer.

The two types of radiation treatment for patients with cervical cancer are:

  1. External beam radiation therapy (EBRT): Delivers high doses of radiation to cervical cancer cells from outside the body, using a variety of machine-based technologies.
  2. High-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy (internal radiation): Delivers high doses of radiation from implants placed close to, or inside, the tumor(s) in the cervix.

Prevention:

Certain prevention techniques that would be advisable to detect cancer in its early stages would be,

  • Regular Pap smear tests for cervical cancer
  • Taking vaccines for cervical cancer
  • Regular mammograms and checkups for breast cancer
  • Changing lifestyles to reduce stress
  • Changes in diet to reduce risks
  • Leading a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello, Oligomenorrhoea or getting infrequent/ decreased flow during the menses is due to any underlying nutritional deficiency/ ies, stress, if it's attended with irregular menses - may be because of PCOS or some other problem. The degree of menstrual abnormality is also directly proportional to the intensity of the exercise. So, we need to rule out the causative factor! First take the below homoeopathic medicines which is general tonic, if even after taking them the flow is not normal, then will have probe further by getting ultrasound (pelvis) done. Medication: Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.

Does washing your vaginal area after intercourse help in preventing you from pregnancy. Or is there a method to prevent it apart from contraceptive pills.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Ernakulam
Hello lybrate-user, washing the vagina after intercourses won't prevent from getting pregnant. Do intercourse on safe days means avoid sex from 11 th to 16 th day of the menstrual cycle, these days mark ovulation. Once ovulation period is over chances of getting pregnant are very less.

Most pregnancy tests will be positive by the time a woman has missed her period. Other early signs of pregnancy include fatigue, feeling bloated, frequent urination, mood swings, nausea, and tender or swollen breasts. Not all women have all of these symptoms, but it is common to have at least one of them.

Chances of retained products are nil as she was free from symptoms from date of delivery till 13 July.
