How Ayurveda Helps Manage Autoimmune Disorders?

When the immune system of the body reacts against the tissues of its own body, it is called an autoimmune disorder. To put it more dramatically, the body becomes its own enemy. The immune system of your body keeps fighting disease causing germs and bacteria, but in rare cases, the immune system might malfunction and fight its own body causing different disorders. These disorders may be caused due to genetic issues or due to mutations. According to ayurveda, autoimmune disorders are a result of constant unhealthy lifestyle and diet. Ayurveda works at the root cause of the disease where it starts treating the malfunctioning immune system.

Here is how ayurveda treats autoimmune disorders:

  1. Toxin removal: Ayurveda starts working on removing the toxins from the body. According to ayurveda, toxins or ama in the body interfere with the proper functioning of the immune system, which often leads to autoimmune diseases. Usually shunthi, haritaki, pippali, maricha, hingu and saindhav lavan are used to detoxify the body.
  2. Metabolism correction: Not only will ayurveda detoxify the body, but it will also correct the metabolism which gets messed up when afflicted with an autoimmune disorder. Neem, guggulu, guduchi, vasa, patola patra and ghrita are used to correct the metabolism.
  3. Increase in ojus production: Ojus is the component which helps in the nourishment of the immune system. It is generally received from the food you eat. Due to dysfunctional immune system causing the impairment of metabolism, production of ojas decreases to almost nil. Hence ayurveda increases its production. Guduchi, haridra, manjishtha, amalaki, nirgundi, yashtimadhu and pippali are used to increase ojha production.
  4. Immune system correction: Lastly, ayurveda works at correcting the immune system. If the immune system is not corrected, then the above treatment procedure will just be useless. Ghrita, haritaki, bahera, amalaki, ela and dadim are used generally to calm the immune system and rejuvenate it. They help correct the immune system for normal functioning.

Autoimmune disorders may not be easily treated, but that doesn't mean you cannot expect it to cure or witness a miracle. You just need some faith and confidence alongside proper treatment and you are ready to roll. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Is Actinomycosis Contagious? How Can It Be Treated?

Is Actinomycosis Contagious? How Can It Be Treated?

Actinomycosis is a condition which is caused due to a bacteria called actinomycetaceae bacteria.

One interesting thing to know about actinomycosis is that the sort of bacteria which are responsible for it are almost always present in the human body. As a matter of fact, the bacteria are present and live in the linings of the mouth, the throat and the digestive system. In the case of women, it is also present in their vagina. Men fall prey to actinomycosis more than women. Also this disease is more common among adults.

There is nothing wrong or threatening at all when it comes to being a host to these bacteria, unless there is a cut in the body and they are given the ripe opportunity to enter the body to a deeper level. The condition of actinomycosis often lasts for a long time. But since it is not contagious, there is little need to worry about a transfer of actinomycosis from one person to another. This is due to the fact that the bacteria cannot survive outside the body as it is of the anaerobic type.

Symptoms

When a person has actinomycosis, some of the prominent symptoms include draining sores on the skin, coughing as well as chest pain. In addition to these, you may also notice lumps beginning to appear on the face of the affected person, a sudden weight loss, fatigue and fever. Sometime you may also see a few abscesses or scar tissues as symptoms to the disease.

Treatment

Some of the preventive measures which one may take includes reduction in alcohol consumption, following healthy practises which also means following a regular diet routine, and avoiding any dental problems.

But even after all such precautionary steps, if you’re diagnosed with actinomycosis, antibiotics may become your best bet. Some of the popular ones which doctors prescribe to their patients are tetracycline and erythromycin. There are side effects to consuming these medicines as a person can have a rash or diarrhoea when these medicines are consumed.

Also the time required to treat actinomycosis is long. In fact, a person can expect it to be up to a year until he or she is completely cured. Depending on how bad the situation is, the lumps which are caused due to actinomycosis may also need to be removed through a surgery. However, before you decide to go for a treatment to cure actinomycosis, consult a qualified doctor and follow his / her advice.

Hi, If I had sex with my partner in her periods, is it safe, will she get pregnant.

MD Hom., Certificate in Food and Nutrition, BHMS, Diploma In Yoga
Homeopath, Indore
Hi, If I had sex with my partner in her periods, is it safe, will she get pregnant.
The probability is that she would not get pregnant having sex during her period. Apart from being messier and less desirable, having sex during her period will more than likely not result in getting pregnant. More than likely, your ovulation is several days away decreasing any chances of conceiving during this time. However, there are exceptions. The above applies to women who have typical 28 to 30 day or longer cycles. If she happen to be one of the individuals who has a shorter cycle there is a chance she could get pregnant while having sex during her period. For this she needs to know her ovulatory calender and then the safe period in which she cannot get pregnant after having sex will be evaluated. For more queries contact us.

If after taking abortion pill at home and pregnancy not clear after 5 days of bleeding then what shall I do?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It, may take 7-14 days for the bleeding to stop. If during this time bleeding does not stop means pregnancy is not aborted completely, which needs to be removed with d&c to prevent infection. But you have to wait for at least 7-14 days after the vaginal insertion of the tablets.

I have a back pain in lower parts which mostly starts during evenings or night. I have period on 6th this month (bleeding was heavy such that I needed to change pads 2 times a day). I also felt some whitish material coming from private part 2 or 3 days back. What can be the possible causes of this back pain? I also had a little cervical problem some years back.

Some amount of white discharge is OK but if it is more and is associated with pain in lower back, there could be internal infection. Periods with the need to change pad twice a day is also normal. You could probably be overworked, anaemic or low on vitamins which could be a cause of your pain. Make sure you drink lots of water, take a diet which has protein, vitamins N mine in sufficient quantities. Contact privately for medication.

Hello doctor is this any possible way to reoccur molar pregnancy and how to prevent another molar pregnancy?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Hello doctor is this any possible way to reoccur molar pregnancy and how to prevent another molar pregnancy?
After molar pregnancy, the risk of developing a second mole is 1.2-1.4%. The risk increases to 20% after 2 moles. So effective contraception is recommended during the period of follow-up, oral contraceptive pills should be started immediately after evacuation of vesicular mole. After completion of documented remission or normal hcg value for 12 months, women who desire pregnancy may discontinue contraception, and can plan for next pregnancy.

Hello lybrate-user- pcod is caused by improper food intake and improper routine specially done in the time of menses. Try this ayurvedic treatment- a) tab kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice daily. B) tab hyponid 1 tab thrice daily. C) do basti treatment by nearby ayurvedic doctor (it is a very effective treatment in ayurveda for pcod). D) maintain proper eating routine, avoid fast foods and spicy diet.

Borderline ventriculomegaly may not be a problem. I do not know whether she has undergone trple test at arround 13-14 weeks. If that was normal then there is less problem. At this stage you can go for karyotyping to find out if there is any abnormality.

Dear user. I can understand. Women can experience VAGINAL PAIN during or after sex, either in the vagina or deeper in the pelvis. Pain in the vagina could be caused by: an infection: thrush or a sexually transmitted infection (STI), such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea or genital herpes. Changing hormone levels can make your vagina dry. Lack of foreplay and other factors can make your vagina dry. All these factors could contribute to the pain. I suggest you to consult a gynecologist for physical investigation. Take care.

Hi, chances of pregnancy can be there as cowpers secretion which is there in the precum can also contain sperms, if penetration was done even without discharge of semen. Unwanted 72 can be taken but consult a gynaecologist also as side effects also cause problems.
