Diet, Nutrition & Ayurveda Treatment For Allergic Rhinitis!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD (AM), PGDPPHC, ACLS
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Diet, Nutrition & Ayurveda Treatment For Allergic Rhinitis!

Breathing is inhalation and exhalation, where oxygen is inhaled into and carbon dioxide is released from the body. Air passes through the nose, which has fine hair and mucus to filter out suspended particles in the air like pollen. When the person’s immunity is weakened or is highly reactive, the mucosa reacts to many substances which are generally present. This is known as allergic rhinitis.

Types: Depending on the occurrence, it can be:

  1. Seasonal: For instance, in spring when there is too much pollen in the air; known as hay fever. This is an acute rhinitis and subsides with a change in weather.
  2. Chronic: This is when the body reacts to some normal substances like eggs, animal dander, extreme cold, dust, mites, etc. via an allergic reaction.

Causes of allergic rhinitis as per Ayurveda

  • Mandagni – low digestion strength
  • Kapha vruddhi – increase of Kapha dosha
  • Allergens – external factors such as pollen, dust etc
  • Residing with pet animals
  • Exposure to humidity, dust, cold
  • Virudh aahara – wrong food combinations
  • Long term intake of drugs like aspirin, leading to depleted immunity and making the person prone to dust allergies.

Symptoms:

  1. Runny nose for prolonged periods of time
  2. Chronic congestion
  3. Persistent sneezing
  4. Teary eyes
  5. Fever and headache

Ayurveda believes that this is due to excessive kapha dosha. So, in order to manage allergic rhinitis, two approaches should be taken. Foods which increase kapha should be avoided, and elimination of kapha from the body should be targeted.

Non-medical ways to combat allergic rhinitis:

Prevention has a big role to play in managing allergic rhinitis.

  1. Whether it is animal dander, eggs, tomatoes, or extreme cold, if you know it could cause an attack, stay away from it.
  2. Chew foods properly to ensure through absorption of vitamins and minerals, which are essential for immunity
  3. Boil water with a spoonful of turmeric and a pinch of salt and drink it regularly
  4. Basil and mint leaves can be boiled in water and consumed for improving allergic rhinitis
  5. Clove and pepper can be chewed to get immediate relief
  6. A mixture of crushed clove and pepper mixed with turmeric and honey works wonders for allergic rhinitis
  7. Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables. They are more likely to be chemical-free, are cheaper, fresher, and definitely more nutritious.
  8. Carrots eaten with a bit of fat produce the best defense against allergic rhinitis, as the beta-carotene in it is fat soluble.
  9. Whole grains, green leafy vegetables, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and dairy products, contain a number of vitamins and minerals which help in fighting allergic rhinitis
  10. Ayurvedic remedies like shilajit and guduchi boost immunity function
  11. Neem, Ashwagandha, liquorice, cinnamon, tulsi, and curcumin are proven remedies for allergic rhinitis.
  12. Panchakarma specifically aimed at rhinitis include Nasya, Dhoomapana (medicated smoking) and emesis (vaman ). This helps in eliminating kapha which is believed to cause allergic rhinitis.

Though allergic rhinitis is a very common condition, the treatment is also easy and many home remedies help in managing the condition.

Lifestyle improvement:

  1. Always keep cloves and black peppers with you. Immediately keep two pieces of it in mouth when you feel of attack.
  2. At the pre attack or attack rub Nilgiri oil , Mint oil, or pain balm on chest and get fomentation.
  3. Keep watch on the elements that causes irritation for you and stay away from this.
  4. Use mask while driving vehicle or going through public places.
  5. Always take warm water bath.
  6. Do not expose to hot sunrays.
  7. Regularly take inhalation of steam.
  8. Regularly go for morning walk in warm weather.
  9. Do sufficient exercise.
  10. Do not reside in dark or dump places. Get fresh air.
  11. Do not get sleep at day time or immediate after dinner.
  12. Take sufficient rest. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

I'm currently under Anti - Tuberculosis allopathic medication for the past three months. Lately I've got a problem of eyesight. There seems bubble-like matter and dark spots moving in front of my eyes. I even feel a haziness and dizziness leading to a sort of vertigo due to this. I think this has been due to the side-effects of my anti- tuberculosis medicines. Is there a serious risk to my eyesight? What should I do? Can you please suggest any suitable health tip for my eyes?

It could be a blockage of a thin tube draining teardrops from eyes to nose called nasolacrimal duct. You need to consult an ent surgeon for nasal check up and an eye surgeon also to cure your problem.

Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration or foreplay. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. It may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person Your doctor will discuss your medical and sexual history with you. He or she will do a thorough physical exam. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner also. Premature ejaculation can have many causes. So your doctor may order lab tests to rule out any other medical problem. In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation, as well as medications are there to help. All the best.

I am 46 years old female and since last 10 to 15 years I am suffering from migraine with heavy paining in head. Your guidance please.

Migraine can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed under supervision, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines.
