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. 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.

Regular walk and limiting calories in dinner is good, try taking more proteins in the daytime rather than night, take vegetables and soup in the night time. Neem is blood purifier, antiseptic,and it increases bowel movement too.

Allergic Rhinitis - Allergens That Can Cause It!

MD - Ayurveda, CIY, Guru Shishya parampara, BAMS

Allergic Rhinitis - Allergens That Can Cause It!

Allergic Rhinitis is a very common condition and it is also known as hay fever. One in five people is usually affected by the same. It is an inflammation inside the nose that occurs when one breathes in something that he is allergic to such as dust, mould, pollen or animal dander. It also occurs if one eats a food that he is allergic to. The immune system of the body reacts to these allergens and attacks the particles inside the body. It results in allergic rhinitis symptoms such as watery nose and eyes and sneezing.

Allergic rhinitis is caused by an allergic reaction to allergens.

  1. Oversensitive Immune System: Whenever our immune system senses danger, it produces antibodies to fight them off. It is the same for allergens too, but allergic reactions do not occur after coming into contact with the allergen for the first time. It takes time, and hence, the immune system must also recognize it first and then produce the antibodies to fight it. Producing antibodies beforehand causes the cells to release a number of chemicals which results in sneezes, nose block and runny nose.
  2. Common Allergens: Tiny particles of allergens enter the body through the breathing process and cause rhinitis. Common allergens are-
    • House dust mites: House dust mites are tiny insects. They are found on the bed, sofa, mattresses, pillow cover, etc. They feed on human skin flakes. They do not cause rhinitis directly; a chemical found in their excrement causes it. These mites can be found throughout the year, but their number increases during winter.
    • Pollen and spores: Trees and grass produce tiny particles of pollen that cause rhinitis. Trees produce pollens from early to mid-spring. Grass between the end of spring and beginning of summer.
    • Animals: Many people are allergic to animals. What causes rhinitis is not their fur but their urine and saliva. People are mostly affected by cats, dogs, horses, cattle, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents and hamsters. An effective solution is to be around cats and dogs from an early age. This protects from the allergic reactions.
    • Work related allergens: There happen to be a few allergens at the workplace, such as wood dust, flour dust, latex etc.

Symptoms are dependent on the severity of rhinitis

  1. Headache
  2. Sneezing
  3. Blocked and runny nose
  4. Sore throat
  5. Itchy nose, eye, mouth, throat and skin
  6. Red swollen watery eyes
  7. Dark circles
  8. Coughing
  9. Hives
  10. Trouble smelling
  11. Pressure in nose and cheeks

Ayurvedic Allergic Rhinitis Treatment
Allergic Rhinitis from an Ayurvedic perspective is caused due to the ama (toxins) present in the body and due to low immunity. Accumulated ama aggravates the levels of Kapha (Water) in the body, giving rise to different symptoms of allergies.

Ayurveda believes in balancing the three doshas present in the human body, thus treating the disease on the whole. Treatment involves clearing the sinuses and expelling phlegm, alleviating the relevant dosha and detoxification. To permanently resolve this disorder, dietary and lifestyle adjustments may be necessary in addition to the strengthening of the immune system. Panchakarma is an effective means of treating Allergic Rhinitis.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

  • Have freshly-prepared, warm food.
  • Avoid stale and junk food.
  • Kapha-aggravating foods like dairy, wheat, sugar, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, bananas, oranges and grapefruits should be avoided.
  • Cover your nose in dusty or cold surroundings.
  • Whenever you feel slight congestion, take a steam inhalation treatment.
  • Avoid sleeping in the open and cover yourself properly before going to sleep.

Nasyam Therapy which is part of Panchkarma is very effective in cleaning of sinuses and improving immunity of nasal mucosal membrane.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
