Hello,

Myself is Dr. Harshita Sethi I am Ayurvedic practitioner and diet and lifestyle counsellor too. After finishing my MD in Kaya Chikitsa branch of ayurved in 2003, I started my own practice with the name of Avedna Ayurveda, after that I spent few years in UK and coming back in 2014 I started, I extended my practice into panchkarma centre and opened a panchkarma wellness clinic with the name of Avedna Ayurveda Wellness Panchkarma Centre. I have got two branches of it, one is in Gurgaon and one is in Noida.

And today I am going to talk about neurological disorders which is a Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease normally seen in elderly patients, so you know patient is usually 65 years of age but nowadays we are seeing early onset of Parkinson’s disease and what happens in Parkinson’s disease patient start with the symptom of uncontrolled movement of finger and thumb. Basically it's a degenerative disorder, so what happens in our brain there is a part of brain stem where the loss of function of specialised group of cells happens and it stops the production of neurotransmitters which is dopamine, it is chemical basically which is released by a nerves cell and it passes the signal to another nerve cell. So when there is a deficiency of this particular neurotransmitter then there are some motor changes starts happening in our body and patient you know they experience that some kind of tremors in their hands, arms and gradually it extends to leg also. It becomes very difficult for the patient to do daily task, you know like opening or closing of button of their shirt becomes very difficult and then gradually goes to the legs also and which hampers their gate and the patient also get very expressionless face and sometimes they give a very mask face kind of feeling to us and in some patients we see the loss of memory also happens with Parkinson’s disease. So what we do in Parkinson’s disease basically, in ayurveda also it is mentioned very beautifully with the name of kampavata or vepathu it is a kind of Vata disorder. When the Vata increases in our body our excessive predominance of Vata or any imbalance of Vata happens in our body then this kind of movements we see, uncontrolled moment we see in our body. So in this we treat Vata we do Vata chikitsa with oleation therapy with Abhyanga with particular oils like ashwagandha oil and bala oil and we gives certain herbs which can regenerate or even if they cannot regenerate they can prevent the detoration of further nerve cells. So the cells which we have the intact nerves cells, we can prevent them from further deteriorating. So and there are some herbs which show the activity of this natural they have got natural leveropinedat so we give these kind of herbs to those patients along with the complete treatment of lifestyle and daily regime according to Vata pacifying diet and Vata pacifying herbs we give it to them. If there is a predominance of other doshas like if there is a association of some other doshas like Pitta or Kapha than we treat them accordingly, so we give the herbs like guduchi, shankhpushpi, jatamansi then there is a one more drug of choice is atmagupta, which is very very effective in Parkinson's disease. So atmagupta is basically micuna pruriens but we give this in very control supervision of a Ayurvedic physician and there are some therapies also we do in Parkinson's disease to prevent it further going on for the deterioration there are some Abhyanga massages we do, vasti chikitsa to do, in which we give medicated enema to prevent the Vata from the sthan of its sanchreya where it is originating, So we relieve the constipation and we control the Vata from the place of its origination and then there are there is another way of preventing Parkinson's disease is continuously mantra chanting you know when we are repeating something or singing something or like in hindu culture we have a culture of chanting mantra’s according to the days, there are different mantra’s for the different days like for the Sunday there is a god son we chant different mantra’s for god sun, for Monday it's a day of lord Shiva so we chant different mantra’s for lord Shiva, like Tuesday is a day of hanuman so we chant hanuman chalisa which has got 40 verses in that. So we memorize it and chant it without looking at it, so what it does with it stimulates our brain cells and it prevent further deterioration of our brain cells. So I would advise all the people should start putting this into practice when they reach the age of 50 which is a innerway we can prevent Parkinson's disease and other therapies we do it at do at our Panchkarma Centre is Potli massage is Abhyanga, shirodhara and to prevent neurological muscular disorders we do Shasti shali pinda sweda also in which cook special kind of rice in the milk and applied all over your body. So it is useful in paralysis and muscular weakness kind of disease.

So here I end for today now, so you can contact me through Lybrate or you can contact me two of my Avedna Ayurveda Panchkarma Centre, one is in Noida and one is in Gurgaon. I hope you find this information useful, Thank you.

Hello!<br/><br/>Myself is Dr. Harshita Sethi. I am ayurvedic physician, diet and lifestyle consul...

 

Hello! Myself Dr. Harshita Sethi. I am an ayurvedic physician, diet and lifestyle consultants.

Today I’m going to talk about common problem which is headache. We all experienced headache in our lifetime. It is very prevalent in all over the world. I have practiced in UK for 8 years and their I have also seen so many patients complaining about a headache.

We can classify headache in two different categories one when it comes in a full fledge form like migraines headache, sinus headache, cluster headache or tension headache and second when it is associated with some other underline cause like fever , hypertension , other eye refracted problems sinusitis, high intake alcohol and really intracranial tumors

I have seen headache running in the families . The people who have got more water in there body , who have got more water pre dominant body constitution , they tend to get less threshold so their nerves are little bit weaker . So as soon as they get the trigger,  their nerves start reacting or stimulating and they start getting headaches.  This trigger can be changed in routine, loud noise, change in temperature, change in heat or acidity, constipation etc. and there can be different kinds of pain which they can experience burning, throbbing, pulsating .

It could be pursing pain in Ayurveda also achariya‘s have mentioned different kind of headaches and very beautifully they have described this pain like a bhedak, sarak and lemon types of headaches are mentioned under shirorig by achariya- Shao sharod. So one variety is Wataj which is more related to gastric upset - when we have constipation we try to make more gas in our tummies,  then we tend have this wajach kind of shrerook .

Second is fitaaj - when we have acidity , then we have burning kind of headache . Then kafaaj shiroroo which is related to sinuses congestion or heaviness in head which happens to more accumulation of mucus. Then sunny pataj which is the mixture of all of them,  then there is raktaj variety, krimaj variety, shaiaj variety and ananat wata, arda bhedak, suriya wadh and shankath /

All these varieties are beautifully described in ayurvedic tests like anantwarta could be a correlated with, or dhao bedahak could be correlated with migraines clarity where we feel the headache pain in half side of our head is either right or left. It is written that it comes in 10 days or 15 days and there is another one suriyawrata which could be co related to sinusitis.

As the sun goes up , the pain goes high . As the sun comes down , then pain starts subsequently down so these are beautifully mentioned in ayurvedik text. Then there is another variety called shankhakh which happens in the terminal stages of cancer . Its usually difficult to treat but very beautifully mentioned in Ayurveda and different causes are mentioned in Ayurveda because once we know the cause , then we can treat according to cause and we can cure the disease. The causes could be long holding of natural urges then people are setting in the offices not going to the toilet at the right time , then they tend to develop a symptom when the people sleeping wrong posture when people take more cold drinks and food especially in night time then it could be one of cause we can say life style is not regulated.

There is no time to wake and sleep, then we tend to get shiro roga headache. Now we come to the chikitsa , so we have to treat the cause . Once we know the cause, whether its due to acidity constipation or stree full life, then we treat according to cause . We do various therapies , we do various ayurvedik formulation in the form of Decoption, tablets or liquids or powders and i tell my patients to do a very simple thing on daily basis which they can do at home or here we can do it center in the form of nasiyum therapy .

We put two drops of antails badataila shunbindtaula in the Noses tail which can nourish the nerves which can strength the nerves and i tell people you take almond oil when u know the headache is going to happen , u can put pressure on these marna points which can calm down your nerves and then nasiyum tharapy can be done 7, 8 times over here in any panchkana center and then this practice of anu taila intilation nostrils can be practiced on a daily basis at home . There are various herbs which we use like jhata mansi, molethi, wacha, jotish mati various kinds of oils we use in our chikitsa.

So, it is beautifully mentioned in ayurveda text so we can cure this problem and we can avoid this problem so you contact me through Lybrate or I practice ayurveda at two of my centers one is in noida another one is in gurgaon. So I run my practice with the awaidna ayurveda.

Thank you very much.

Hello. I am Dr. Harshita Sethi, MD in Ayurveda. I had completed MD from Lucknow and try to practice with my daily life, to my family members in practicing Ayurveda since 2002. So today I am going to talk about a common problem  which many girls are facing. Even the men are also facing this problem, i.e, Hair fall. This problem arises with some other problem and this is an additional symptom of having hair fall. Also you see very dull and thin hair. So I asked them what you're eating. Are you absorbing the food properly? Is your digestion is proper because there are so many causes of hairfall nowadays.

You are surrounded with the radiations, you are surrounded with the chemicals, too many pollutants so there can be any cause. It can be watered, it can be chemicals. Whatever you are eating the vegetables they are not very right kind nowadays. So we can blame on anything. But we have to find out the basic cause also. Oh that are we doing our part whatever we are having the food vegetable but I'll be consuming things properly. Are we absorbing them properly and is it assimilating in our body to give the proper minerals and nutrition which is required for the growth of hair and nails. So we have to think inside us, we have to go inside us and find out the cause.  I'll be taking proper vegetable juices, proper soups, four fruits in a day. Like we say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. So are we taking a proper five-day food amount in a day to give us a proper nutrition because the deficiency of minerals and sometimes the causes are some autoimmune disorders which is you know not very common cause it is yes thirty percent cause can be due to that it could be thyroid problem.

But the main causes are nutritional deficiency which we can easily cure and we also do some therapies. So whenever the patient comes to me, I tell them the same diet required to be followed. This diet chart, lifestyle part you have to follow. Avoid the causes and follow this diet chart and take this medicine for short time and then we do some therapies also for the quick results in which we do Shirodhara therapy which is an excellent therapy to provide that nutrition to hairs and calm down your nerves and take out the stress because sometimes stress is also the cause.

You are not giving the time properly to yourself, when you're stressed out, not getting proper sleep so for that we do therapy for the quick results and I want to show you the therapy shirodhara how we do it. Let me take you to the therapy room. So this is the shirodhara therapy which I wanted to show you. Here the oil is flowing. This is a bhringraj oil which we use for the treatment of hair falls and it flows for 30 minutes on the aagya chakra and we massage and get some pressure point massage also to the patient to provide the nourishment to the whole scalp. It goes in the roots of the hair follicles and it calm down the nerves. Sometimes the hair fall is due to stress so we relieve the stress and calms down the nerves and person now the patient will have proper sleep and it also stimulates the hair growth and very nourishing to the hair and very calming therapy. This is called shirodhara and after that we do 15 minutes Head massage which goes deep into the root and then we cover the hair with the hot towel in order to penetrate the oil deeply into the scalp.

There is one more therapy in which we apply some here packs and we apply some Ayurveda scrumps and the shirodhara therapy we do it for seven sittings or sometimes we have to do for fifteen sittings also. Depends on the chronicity and the problem of the person and at this therapy as you see it the oil flows on this agya chakra and then it goes deep inside after some sitting than it stimulates the pituitary gland also, stimulates the hormone. What we do what we do we collect the oil and we keep repeating this oil to flow for 30 minutes on the Aagya chakra which goes into the whole head. This therapy is also very good for insomnia where the person have sleeping disorder. They take time for the sleep or big sleep breaks up. The pattern is not very irregular so this is also very good for such cases. For stress and anxiety, this therapy is really good . Applying some pressure on the pressure points which is called Marma point in Ayurveda. So this is shirodhara therapy which I wanted to show that we do it in a very calm surroundings and swing surroundings with mantra chanting and all so the person enjoys it and is very helpful in hair fall.

Thank you so much and if you want to contact me for this therapy or want to conserve me you can contact me on lybrate and I practice in Noida and gurgaon so you can contact me through lybrate.

Arthritis - Why Is Ayurveda The Best Mode Of Treatment For It?

Arthritis - Why Is Ayurveda The Best Mode Of Treatment For It?

If you are looking for Ayurvedic remedies for arthritis (Amavata) or osteoarthritis (Sandhigata Vata), you should opt for Ayurvedic treatment. Arthritis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disease causing damage to your joints and connective tissues. The knee gets commonly affected. There are three primary types of arthritis, which occur in your knees. Ayurveda is ideal for arthritis treatment, and there are several Ayurvedic remedies that you can opt for .

Arthritis is very common but is not well understood. Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease; it is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. People of all ages, sexes and races can and do have arthritis, and it is the leading cause of disability in America. More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have some type of arthritis. It is most common among women and occurs more frequently as people get older.

Common arthritis joint symptoms include swellingpain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may stay about the same for years, but may progress or get worse over time. Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, such as knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as the joints.

How does ayurveda approach arthritis?

Ayurvedic treatment for arthritis is based on the understanding of the various doshas or humors of the body. According to Ayurveda, there are four main humors in the body and it is these that govern our health, wellness and our proneness to disease. Arthritis, as per Ayurveda, is a condition caused due to the aggravation of vatadosha (air). The body produces ama a toxin that is released as a by product of improper digestion. When ama is produced, it circulates in the body and gets deposited at sites that have already weakened.

So, when the vata is already stirring up, ama finds the perfect place to build up. That is why you experience arthritis in fingers or knees. For most people, arthritis in the knee is more painful than in the fingers because knees are load bearing joints. If you have arthritis in your knees, you will have trouble moving and the range of motion in your joints will be severely restricted. You may have to depend on people or walking aids to make even the smallest of movements.

Ayurvedic treatment for arthritis aims at balancing and stabilising the Vata component of your body. This is done by strengthening your alimentary canal and metabolic pathway. This makes sure that your circulatory channels do not get blocked by impurities, and are functioning properly. You need to drink a lot of water in order to detoxify your body. There are several Ayurvedic home remedies for arthritis treatment as well, which help in improving your motion range.

Treatment tips:

  1. You should start your day with a big glass of lukewarm water every day with Home Remedy ie. 100gm fried Methi (fenugreek) + 100gm Haldi + 10gm Piparamul Make it mixer. Take 1 Teaspoon every day morning & Evening

  2. You should opt for fenugreek which is an ideal natural inhibitor of aama and corrects your Vata dosha. This natural arthritis remedy can be taken in various ways. You can take these seeds in your food. You can also grind them, mix mustard oil to it, and apply the mixture to your joints. This provides warmth and relief to your joints.

  3. You can opt for an Ayurvedic hot oil massage of your joints. This is effective, especially during the winter. You can use ITIS OIL + castor oil + sesame seedoil for massaging your arthritis affected joints. Do not apply pressure while massaging your joints as applying pressure goes against the principles of Ayurveda.

  4. It is recommended for you to meditate regularly for relieving stress and coping with anxiety. These factors are responsible for the development of ama in your body. Regular meditation makes your body relaxed and calm. You should practice yoga as it involves several breathing exercises which help in initiating you into meditation. Having effective control over your breath, your meditation will be more effective.

  5. Take one teaspoon castor oil with one cup warm water once in a week.

  6. It is important for you to sleep early and wake up early. The disruption of your sleep cycle causes aggravation of all your doshas and causes stress and fear. A healthy sleep cycle helps you in keeping away from obesity. This improves the health of your load bearing joints, as the chances of them getting extra load because of obesity are prevented.If you are looking for Ayurvedic remedies for arthritis, it is important for you to consult an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner. He will be able to prescribe you Ayurvedic remedies which suit your symptoms and stage of arthritis.

  7. You start Unique Ayurvedic Panchkarma Treatment like abhyangam, Swedanam, Podikizi, and janu Basti along with basti treatment.

Psoriasis - The Ayurvedic Approach To Treat It!

Psoriasis - The Ayurvedic Approach To Treat It!

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition precipitated by an overactive immune system. The skin cells grow rapidly and give rise to silvery and flaky red patches on the skin. The condition is not restricted to any particular area and can affect any place on the body.

The biggest problem with Psoriasis is that it is incurable. There are medicines and treatment options to manage the symptoms.

However, Ayurveda may be an alternative to modern medicine in treating this skin condition.

Symptoms of Psoriasis:

There are many signs and symptoms for Psoriasis. However, they are different for everyone. Some of the common symptoms are:

  1. Cracked and dry skin that may bleed.

  2. Red patches.

  3. Silvery and thick scales.

  4. Ridged and pitted nails.

  5. Stiff and swollen joints.

  6. Itchiness in the skin.

  7. Plaques.

  8. Discoloration of nails.

Basic Ayurvedic Tenets:

The basic tenets of Ayurveda revolve around balancing the three biological elements that make up our bodies. These are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, which can be translated into wind, bile, and phlegm. In Ayurveda, it is opined that every human being has a different combination of these three elements or doshas. The proportions of these elements vary as we age or when we fall ill. The forces that abate change in these proportions are diverse. Emotions, thoughts, relationships, consciousness, lifestyle, diet, environment, season et al can affect these proportions and precipitate physical and mental problems.

Ayurvedic Approach To Treat Psoriasis:

It is incurable but contrable with Ayurvedic therapy and treatment. It is mentioned in Ayurvedic texts under the heading of Rog Kitibh. Taking a cue from its basic tenets, Ayurvedic treatment of Psoriasis revolves around changes and corrections in various elements that matter. So, the Ayurvedic practitioners may try to balance these three biological elements by suggesting dietary changes, meditation, changes in lifestyle, changes in environment, etc.

However, Ayurveda also depends heavily on medicines extracted from various plants and flowers. The use of several Ayurvedic herbs such as aloe vera, garlic, jasmine flower, boswellia, etc. are pretty useful in treating various skin conditions. All these herbs don’t work the same way. While some prevent inflammation, others may prevent drying of the skin and still others may try to pacify the immune system. A combined approach of using all these herbs, lifestyle, dietary, and environmental changes may bring about a remission of Psoriasis symptoms.

Studies Regarding the Utility of Ayurveda In Treating Psoriasis:

Studies have been conducted to validate the utility of Ayurveda in treating Psoriasis. These studies have come out with various herbs that help treat some or the other symptoms of Psoriasis. In a study published in Tropical Medicine & International Health in 1996, Aloe Vera has been found to be a safe and natural remedy for Psoriasis. Patients who participated in the study had an appreciable reduction in the severity of psoriatic lesions. In fact, the improvement was so encouraging that some of them were considered to be healed after four weeks of continued treatment. The cream made out of Aloe Vera healed 25 of a total of 30 patients.

Conclusion:

There are many other herbs that are capable of healing Psoriasis. It can be safely concluded from these studies that Ayurveda can be a very useful alternative to modern medicine in treating Psoriasis. However, one should always consult an Ayurvedic practitioner before opting these medicines and remedies.

Obesity - How Can Ayurveda Treat It Effectively?

A drastic change in the life style habits and this modern world people face many health issues in their daily life. Obesity is one of the major health issues that most people are affected with.

Obesity or being overweight is a condition characterized by excessive storage of fat in the body. When the body's calorie intake exceeds the amount of calories burned, it leads to the storage of excess calories in the form of body fat. Increased body fat puts a person at risk for many critical conditions such as heart disease, liver damage, diabetes, arthritis and kidney problems.

The most common cause of obesity is lack of physical activity, intake of excessive carbohydrates, fatty and junk food items. It might be even due to pathological or hereditary cause. Ayurveda gives many natural home remedy measures to reduces the body weight and get rid of obesity.

Ayurvedic View

In Ayurveda, obesity is known as Medarog, which is caused by the aggravation of Kapha. Kapha is an Ayurvedic humor which is dense, heavy, slow, sticky, wet and cold in nature. It governs all structure and lubrication in the mind and body apart from controlling weight and formation of all the seven tissues - nutritive fluids, blood, fat, muscles, bones, marrow and reproductive tissues.

The Ayurvedic line of treatment for obesity begins with the pacification of Kapha Dosha. This can be done by eliminating Kapha-aggravating foods from the diet. Next, the treatment also focuses on cleansing of the Medovahi channels through cleansing herbs so that excess weight can be reduced.

Ayurvedic Cure For Coronary Heart Diseases!

The heart is responsible for pumping blood through the system and transporting oxygen and nutrients to all the cells and tissues of the body. However, the heart is susceptible to a number of ailments, including coronary heart disease. Coronary heart disease is a condition where the heart does not receive enough blood because of obstructions or thickening of the coronary arteries. As a result the heart does not receive enough oxygen, which can cause pain in the chest and may even trigger a heart attack. Thankfully, coronary heart disease can be treated with Ayurveda. Ayurveda attempts to treat this disease by addressing the cause of the disease itself by reducing the thickening of the arteries and preventing blockages.

Ayurvedic remedies are a combination of herbal medication and lifestyle change. This is because according to Ayurveda, any illness is the result of imbalances in the body that are affected by the person’s diet, lifestyle, environment and mental health. Guggulu, Amalaki, Triphala, arjuna etc are some of the ayurvedic herbs that can be sued to treat this disease. However, according to Ayurveda, each person has a unique constitution and reacts as per the environment around them in a different manner. Thus, Ayurvedic remedies must be customised according to the patient’s symptoms and overall health.

Some Ayurvedic remedies that can be beneficial to all patients with coronary heart disease are:

  1. Sattvavajay Chikitsa: This refers to giving the patient mental strength and support to deal with the illness. According to Ayurveda, a calm mind is essential for healing. Hence, try meditating for a little while every morning and get plenty of sleep. Ayurvedic therapies such as Shirodhara can also be beneficial. This involves pouring a continuous stream of oil or other liquids on the forehead while the patient is lying down.
  2. Maintain a healthy diet: Both the food being eaten and its quantity are important according to Ayurveda. Ideally, a person should eat only as much fits into two cupped palms at a time and should maintain regular eating hours. Eating plenty of green vegetables and fresh fruits are important to regulate metabolism. Avoid eating starchy and sticky foods and preserved or processed foods.
  3. Panchkarma: Panchkarma helps restore balance in the body and boosts metabolism. It also detoxifies and rejuvenates the body. Panchkarma should always be practised under supervision. Of all the Panchkarma therapies, basti or enemas and virechana or purgation are said to be very effective in treating heart diseases.

Sheetapitta - Causes, Symptoms & Ayurvedic View On It!

Urticaria, commonly known as hives, usually occurs due to an allergic reaction. Sheetapitta is a similar condition in Ayurveda, as the symptoms are similar. Sheetapitta is comprised of two words- ‘sheeta’ (cold) and ‘pitta’ (warm). The condition occurs due to dominance of cold (existing in kapha and vata dosha) over pitta dosha.

Causes of Sheetapitta/urticaria-
Ayurveda believes, sheetapitta is caused due to the following reasons-

  1. Excess intake of pungent (katu) and salty (lavana) food, mustard
  2. Over consumption of sour gruels
  3. Sleeping during the day
  4. Contact with cold substances
  5. Exposure to cold wind
  6. Improper emesis (vomiting)
  7. Insect bite (keeta damsha)
  8. Coming in contact with poisonous bugs and insects (krimi samsarga)
  9. Effect of seasonal changes on the body

Due to the factors mentioned above, especially because of exposure to cold wind, kapha and vata doshas become aggravated, and inevitably combine with pitta dosha. These spread all over the body and produce rashes on the surface of your skin.

Symptoms-
A person having sheetapitta/urticaria will encounter these symptoms-

  • Itching/pricking sensation
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Tastelessness (aruchi)
  • Thirst (pipasa)
  • Lethargy
  • Reddish discoloration of the eyes (rakta lochanata)
  • Fever

Ayurvedic approach to cure Sheetapitta-

Ayurveda focuses on eradicating the doshas and purifying of the body toxins with Ayurvedic medicines & Panchkarma procedures. This is the essential part of Ayurvedic approach to cure urticaria. Abhyanga (massage), svedana (fomentation), vaman (induced vomiting) and virechen (induced lose motion) are very effective in treating Urticaria.

Ayurvedic treatment for Urticaria (Sheetapitta)-
Ayurvedic treatment for urticaria involves body purification therapy like Samshodhana, and oral medications. Some popular, effective techniques used in the treatment are-

  • Applying mustard oil all over the body
  • Applying mustard oil mixed with Saindhava lavana and Yavakshara
  • Use of a herbal powder named Eladi choornam that contains natural ingredients like elaichi
  • Applying medicated paste prepared from Haridra and Doorva, Kushta and Ghee over the rashes
  • Apart from these, herbs such as Guduchi, Yashtimadhu, Amalaki are recommended in the treatment of sheetapitta

Although urticaria is not a fatal condition, it can seriously affect one’s quality of life. Many people suffer from urticaria for several months or years. Continual intake of conventional medicines reduces body’s immunity. Moreover, the incidence of recurrence of this condition is often found. Thus, Ayurveda has an upper hand in treating hives, as it offers a comprehensive and permanent solution for this problem.
