Cancer - How Ayurveda Can Help In Treating It?

Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues. The abnormal cells are termed cancer cells, malignant cells, or tumor cells. Untreated cancers can cause serious illness and death. Many cancers and the abnormal cells that compose the cancer tissue are further identified by the name of the tissue that the abnormal cells originated from (for example, breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer).

Cells become cancer cells because of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) damage. DNA is in every cell and it directs all the cell’s actions. In a normal cell, when DNA gets damaged the cell either repairs the damage or the cell dies. In cancer cells, the damaged DNA is not repaired, and the cell doesn’t die like it should. Instead, the cell goes on making new cells that the body doesn’t need. These new cells all have the same abnormal DNA as the first cell does.

Cancer has largely remained incurable due to its complexity and its ability to spread rapidly and uncontrollably. There are over 200 types of cancers; most can fit into the following categories

  1. Carcinoma: Cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs
  2. Sarcoma: Cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue
  3. Leukemia: Cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood
  4. Lymphoma and myeloma: Cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system
  5. Central nervous system cancers: Cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord Tumors can be benign or malignant.
  6. Benign tumors aren’t cancerous: They can often be removed, and, in most cases, they do not come back. Cells in benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body.
  7. Malignant tumors are cancerous: Cells in these tumors can invade nearby tissues and spread to other parts of the body. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is called metastasis.

Symptoms 

Cancer symptoms are vary in different people and depend on where the cancer is located, where it has spread, and how big the tumor is. Some cancers can be felt or seen through the skin – a lump on the breast or testicle can be an indicator of cancer in those locations. Skin cancer (melanoma) is often noted by a change in a wart or mole on the skin. Some oral cancers present white patches inside the mouth or white spots on the tongue.

Other cancers have symptoms that are less physically apparent. Some brain tumors tend to present symptoms early in the disease as they affect important cognitive functions. Pancreas cancers are usually too small to cause symptoms until they cause pain by pushing against nearby nerves or interfere with liver function to cause a yellowing of the skin and eyes called jaundice. Symptoms also can be created as a tumor grows and pushes against organs and blood vessels. For example, colon cancers lead to symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, and changes in stool size. Bladder or prostate cancers cause changes in bladder function such as more frequent or infrequent urination.

As cancer cells use the body’s energy and interfere with normal hormone function, it is possible to present symptoms such as fever, fatigue, excessive sweating, anemia, and unexplained weight loss. However, these symptoms are common in several other maladies as well. For example, coughing and hoarseness can point to lung or throat cancer as well as several other conditions.

When cancer spreads, or metastasizes, additional symptoms can present themselves in the newly affected area. Swollen or enlarged lymph nodes are common and likely to be present early. If cancer spreads to the brain, patients may experience vertigo, headaches, or seizures. Spreading to the lungs may cause coughing and shortness of breath. In addition, the liver may become enlarged and cause jaundice and bones can become painful, brittle, and break easily. Symptoms of metastasis ultimately depend on the location to which the cancer has spread.

Causes
Cancer arises from one single cell. The transformation from a normal cell into a tumour cell is a multistage process, typically a progression from a pre-cancerous lesion to malignant tumours. These changes are the result of the interaction between a person’s genetic factors and three categories of external agents, including:

  • Physical carcinogens – such as ultraviolet and ionizing radiation;
  • Chemical carcinogens – such as asbestos, components of tobacco smoke, aflatoxin (a food contaminant) and arsenic (a drinking water contaminant); and
  • Biological carcinogens – such as infections from certain viruses, bacteria or parasites.

Ageing is another fundamental factor for the development of cancer. The incidence of cancer rises dramatically with age, most likely due to a buildup of risks for specific cancers that increase with age. The overall risk accumulation is combined with the tendency for cellular repair mechanisms to be less effective as a person grows older.

It is important to point out that most everyone is exposed to cancer-causing substances (for example, sunlight, cigarette smoke, and X-rays) during their lifetime but many individuals do not develop cancer. In addition, many people have the genes that are linked to cancer but do not develop it. Higher the amount or level of cancer-causing materials a person is exposed to, the higher the chance the person will develop cancer. In addition, the people with genetic links to cancer may not develop it for similar reasons (lack of enough stimulus to make the genes function). In addition, some people may have a heightened immune response that controls or eliminates cells that are or potentially may become cancer cells. There is evidence that even certain dietary lifestyles may play a significant role in conjunction with the immune system to allow or prevent cancer cell survival. For these reasons, it is difficult to assign a specific cause of cancer to many individuals.

Ayurveda Treatment:

Ayurveda, one of the major traditional forms of medical practice in India, has produced many useful leads in developing medications for chronic diseases. Ayurveda is an intricate system of healing that originated in India thousands of years ago. Historical evidence of Ayurveda can be found in the ancient books of wisdom known as the Vedas that were written over 6000 years ago. Ayurveda provides novel approaches to cancer prevention that are considered safe. Classical Ayurvedic texts have several references to cancer. Some terms used to describe the condition are general while others are much more specific. 

Arbuda is the most specific term for a cancerous malignancy. Gulma is one another reference used to describe any palpable hard mass in the abdomen. It is any hard, tumor like mass in the abdominal region, which could be benign or malignant. Ayurvedic classification of neoplasms depends upon various clinical symptoms in relation to tridoshas.

  • Group I: Diseases that can be named as clear malignancies, including arbuda and granthi, such as mamsarbuda (sarcomas) and raktarbuda (leukaemia), mukharbuda (oral cancer), and asadhya vrana (incurable or malignant ulcers).
  • Group II: Diseases that can be considered as cancer or probable malignancies, such as ulcers and growths. Examples of these are mamsaja oshtharoga (growth of lips), asadhya galganda (incurable thyroid tumour), tridosaja gulmas, asadhya udara roga, (abdominal tumours like carcinomas of the stomach and liver or lymphomas).
  • Group III: Diseases with the possibility of malignancy, such as visarpa (erysipelas), asadhya kamala (incurable jaundice), asadhya pradara (intractable dysmenorrhea or leukorrhea) and tridosaja nadi vrana (intractable sinusitis).

Simple Steps To Help You Say No!

Simple Steps To Help You Say No!

Many of us tend to comply with every single request that is put forward to us by our peers, family, or at the workplace by our superiors. We choose to take up more jobs than we can efficiently handle and put unnecessary stress on ourselves even at the cost of our time and well-being. Must we always do that? Why do we say yes?

People have the notion that saying no can come across as rude or uncaring. You may feel that you are letting someone down by turning down their request or risking a relationship when in reality, it has mostly to do with your self-confidence than your relationships with people. People who have low self-confidence tend to value their own needs less than the needs of others.

It may branch from overbearing parents, high expectations set by your peers and mentors or experiencing parenthood yourself and setting unreasonable standards for yourself. Childhood influences are usually the biggest cause of people always saying ‘yes’ all the time.

How to start saying say no?
If you want to take a step back and start saying no to make sure your own needs are valued, here’s what you need to do.

  1. Refuse politely, when it seems not possible: Do not overcomplicate responses and try to be as simple in your responses as you can be. If you are asked to do something, and you want to say no, try to be polite in your body language and state that it is not convenient for you at the moment and that you would rather get back to it later.
  2. Seek time before committing: The transition from saying ‘yes’ all the time to saying no does take time! Start to give yourself more time and ask people to get back to you later. This way you can begin to build more self-confidence and learn to say no over time. This also allows you to evaluate your response instead of immediately saying yes or no to the person asking the favor or task.
  3. Do not feel guilty: Deep down if you want to do a favor, you can go ahead with it, but you should also understand that it is okay to say no, and there is no need to associate guilt with it. You should set boundaries and allow people around you to understand how much favors they can ask you for instead of presenting you with an endless amount of favors from you.
  4. Set your boundaries: Refusal does not amount to rejection as you have just as much right to say ‘no’ as the person who is asking the favor from you. You are simply turning down a request, and in most situations, there is a middle ground for compromises where both you and the requester can be satisfied. If you have limited time to fulfill a request, let the person know and help out only as much as you can without overstepping your boundaries.

Bringing in these changes can help you be more self-confident, and at the same time enable you to say no when you need to without weighing yourself down with expectations and fear or rejection.

Hot Or Cold Water Bath In Winter - Which Is Better?

Hot Or Cold Water Bath In Winter -  Which Is Better?

As the days become warm, you tend to turn the shower towards the cold water and as the days get cooler, bathing water usually gets warmer. A cold water shower can be refreshing in the summer. In the same way, a warm shower in the winter can be quite relaxing. However, have you ever thought about what is really good for you? Well, there is no hard and fast rule about which one is better. As a general rule of thumb, according to Ayurveda, hot water should be used to bathe the body and cold water should be used for the head. However, when you clearly have to choose between hot water and cold water, a number of factors have to considered, such as individual’s age, constitution, habits, diseases if any, season, etc.

Let’s take a closer look
Age: Young children and elderly people will get more benefit from warm to hot water bath. Teenagers and people up to the age of about 45-50 years can have a cold water bath. For students who need to be alert and be able to focus on their studies, a cold water bath is ideal.
Constitution: According to Ayurveda, there are three types of doshas; vatta, pitta, and kapha. If you have a pitta body type, you should bathe with cold water. On the other hand, if you have a vata or kapha body type, a hot water shower is much better.
Habits: Your habits can also influence the water temperature. If you like to bathe in the early morning, have a cold water bath. However, if you like to bathe in the evening, try a hot water shower. As the evening is dominated by the vata dosha, hence it is ideal. Similarly, if you like to exercise before your bath, you must bathe with hot water.
Diseases: If you are suffering from diseases caused by an imbalance of the pitta dosha, you should bathe with cold water. Such diseases include indigestion and liver disorders. If you are suffering from an imbalance of the vata or kapha dosha bathe with hot water. Diseases caused by the vata dosha imbalance include arthritis, joint pain and foot pain. Those caused by kapha dosha imbalance include respiratory diseases and allergies.

Some Ayurvedic practitioners also advise alternating between hot and cold baths. What is important is that you should not bathe with water that is either too hot or too cold as bathing with really hot water can disturb the pH level of the skin while bathing with water that is too cold can make you catch a cold.

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

One should get a tetanus vaccine once in 10 years in any case. So if you haven't received a tetanus shot in last 10 years, it's a good time to get it. If you have revived one- no need for another one.

टीकाकरण की प्रकिया एक ऐसा उपाय है जिससे, कुत्तो में होने वाली कुछ प्रमुख विषाणु एवं जीवाणु जनित जानलेवा एवं लाइलाज, बीमारियों जैसे कैनाइन डिस्टेंपर, हेपेटाइटिस, पार्वो वायरस, लेप्टोस्पायरोसिस, रेबीज तथा केनल कफ़ आदि से बचाव के लिए समय समय पर कुत्तों के शरीर में टीका लगाया जाता है,जिससे इन रोगों के खिलाफ रोगप्रतिरोधक क्षमता का शारीर में विकास हो जाता है और हमारा पालतू जानवर एक सिमित अवधि तक इन बिमारियों के घातक प्रभाव से बचा रहता है |

कुछ टीकाकरण संबंधी सामान्य प्रश्नो के जबाब -
 
१- क्या सभी उम्र के कुत्तो का टीकाकरण जरूरी होता है?
हाँ। आमतौर पर १. ५ महीने (४५ दिन) के उम्र से ऊपर सभी कुत्तो का नियमित समय पर टीकाकरण करना जरूरी होता है यदि किसी कारण वश नयमिति या कभी कराया ही न गया हो तो किसी भी उम्र से टीकाकरण शुरू किया जा सकता है। 

२. छोटे बच्चो को किस उम्र से टीका का पहली खुराक देना शुरू करना चाहिए?
४५ दिन के उम्र से ही टीके की पहली खुराक देना बेहद जरूरी होता है 

३. क्या सभी छोटे पप्स को टीकाकरण के पहले पेट के कीड़े देना जरूरी होता है -
हाँ। बहुत से परजीवी ऐसे होते है जो माँ के पेट से ही या दूध के जरिये से बच्चे के शरीर में प्रवेश कर जाते है जिससे शरीर को कमजोर कर देते है और जब टीका लगाया जाता है तो कमजोरी के वजह से उतना अच्छा शरीर में प्रतिरोधक छमता का विकास नहीं हो पता इसलिए पहले ऐसे परजीवीओ को नष्ट करना जरूरी होता है 

४. क्या होता है टीकाकरण का सही उम्र और समयांतराल?
१. पहली खुराक -जन्म के ६ -८ सप्ताह के उपरांत(कैनाइन डिस्टेंपर, हेपेटाइटिस, पार्वो वायरस, लेप्टोस्पायरोसिस, पैराइन्फ़्लुएन्ज़ा हेतु) 
२. बूस्टर खुराक या दूसरी खुराक - प्रथम खुराक के २-३ सप्ताह बाद ; फिर दूसरी खुराक के ठीक एक साल बाद वार्षिक खुराक साल में एक बार पूरी उम्र तक लगवाते रहना चाहिए। 
३. तीसरी खुराक - रेबीज वायरस हेतु- प्रथम खुराक जन्म के ३ माह के उपरान्त। 
४. बूस्टर खुराक या चौथी खुराक - तीसरी खुराक के २-३ सप्ताह बाद ; फिर तीसरी खुराक के ठीक एक साल बाद वार्षिक खुराक साल में एक बार पूरी उम्र तक लगवाते रहना चाहिए। 

५. क्या बूस्टर खुराक देना जरूरी होता है या नहीं?
जन्म के साथ ही माँ से प्राप्त एंटीबाडीज और प्रथम दूध से मिलने वाली सुरछा कवच कुछ सप्ताह तक नवजात के खून में मौज़ूद रह करअनेको बीमारयों से सुरछा प्रदान करती है परन्तु समय के साथ साथ इनकी मात्रा बच्चे के शरीर में कम होने लगती है। जिससे बीमारी होने की आशंका बढ़ जाती है इसलिए लगभग ४५ दिन के बाद टिका का प्रथम खुराक देते है यद्पि ये पता नहीं रहता की माँ से मिलने वाली सुरछा का असर किस स्तर का है जिससे आमतौर पर ये स्तर अधिक होने पर प्रथम खुराक से बच्चे के शरीर में टीकाकरण की गुणवत्ता को बाधित करती है, जो की पप्पस में रोगप्रतिरोधक क्षमता उत्पन्न करने में असक्षम हो जाता है इसलिए कुछ सप्ताह बाद टीकाकरण के दूसरी खुराक दे कर टीकाकरण से रोगप्रतिरोधक क्षमता करने के उद्देश्य को प्राप्त करते है ऐसी दूसरी खुराक को बूस्टर खुराक कहते है। 

६. क्या है टीकाकरण की सही खुराक देने के मात्रा:
डॉग चाहे किसी भी उम्र, भार, लिंग अथवा नस्ल के हों उनको समान मात्रा में टीकाकरण का खुराक दिया जाता है 

७. क्या है टीकाकरण का सही तरीका:
टीकाकरण खाल के नीचे:कैनाइन डिस्टेंपर, हेपेटाइटिस, पार्वो वायरस, लेप्टोस्पायरोसिस, पैराइन्फ़्लुएन्ज़ा तथा रेबीज जैसी बीमारियों की रोकथाम के लिए खाल के नीचे दिया जाता है
 नथुनों में:केनल कफ़ का टीकाकरण कुत्ते के नथुनों में दवा डाल कर किया जाता है

८. क्या सभी टीके एक ही प्रकार के होते है:कुत्तों में टीकाकरण दो प्रकार की होती है
 १. कोर टीकाकरण - टीकाकरण जो सभी कुत्तों के लिये आवश्यक है. यह उन बिमारीयों में दिया जाता है जो आसानी से फैलती हैं अथवा घातक होती हैं जैसे रेबीज, एडीनोवायरस, पार्वोवायरस, और डिस्टेंपर.
 २. नान कोर टीकाकरण – उपरोक्त ४ बिमाँरीयों (रेबीज, एडीनोवायरस, पार्वोवायरस, और डिस्टेंपर) के टीकाकरण को छोड़कर अन्य सभी नानकोर टीकाकरण माना जाता है | यह उन बिमाँरियों से सुरक्षा प्रदान करता है जो वातावरण के अनावरण अथवा जीवनचर्या पर निर्भर करती है जैसे लाइम डिजीज, केनलकफ और लेप्टोस्पाइरोसिस.

९. एक सफल टीकाकरण करने के बाद क्या फिर भी टीकाकरण विफल हो सकता है?हाँ। 
 टीकाकरण के विफलता के कारण कुत्ते में बीमारी होने के निम्नलिखित मुख्य कारण हो सकते है –
१. टीकाकरण के दौरान कुत्ते की रोगप्रतिरोधक क्षमता का सम्पूर्ण रूप से कार्य न करना |
२.आयु – कम उम्र के जानवरों की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली पूर्णतः विकसित नही होती और बड़े आयु के जानवरों की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली कई कारणों से अक्सर कमज़ोर या क्षीण हो जाती है |
३. मानवीय चूक (टीके का अनुचित संग्रहण या अनुचित मिश्रण)- टीकों का संग्रहण एवं इस्तेमाल भी निर्देशानुसार ही होना आवश्यक है | सूरज की रोशनी,गर्म तापमान टीके के प्रभाव को नस्ट कर सकता है | टीके का मिश्रण पशु में टीकाकरण के तुरंत पहले तैयार करना चाहिए | टीके खरीदने के पहले पता करना चाहिए कि टीकों को उचित तापमान एवं देखभाल से रखा गया है या नहीं |
४. डीवार्मिंग – टीकाकरण करने के पहले पेट के कीड़े मारने के लिए डीवर्मिंग करना आवश्यक है, वरना इस तरह का तनाव टीकाकरण के प्रभाव को कम कर सकता है |
५. गलत सीरोटाईप / स्टेन का इस्तेमाल – प्रतिरक्षा प्रतिक्रिया बहुत विशिष्ट होती है | अतः टीके में होने वाली जीवाणु या विषाणु की सही स्टेन होनी चाहिए वरना उससे उत्पन्न होने वाली प्रतिरक्षा जानवर में सही तौर पर सुरक्षा नहीं कर पाती |
६. अनुवांशिक बीमारियाँ – कुछ जानवरों में आनुवंशिक बिमारियों की वजह से सभी रोगों के लिए प्रतिरोधक छमता सामान्य तौर पर कम ही उत्पन्न हो पाती है |
७. वैक्सीन की गुणवत्ता – टीके में प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए प्रयाप्त मात्रा में प्रतिजनी की मात्रा होना चाहिए वरना टीकाकरण के बाद प्रतिरक्षा प्रतिक्रिया प्रयाप्त नहीं होती है |
८. पुराने या अवधि समाप्त टीके – पुराने टीकों में आवश्यक प्रतिजनी गुण समाप्त या कम हो जाता है | इस तरह के टीके लगाने से जानवरों को बेमतलब तनाव दिया जाता है |
९. टीकाकरण का अनुचित समय – टीका निर्माता के निर्देशों के अनुसार टीकाकरण का समय (उम्र एवं मौसम के अनुसार), लगाने का तरीका एवं मात्रा तथा दोबारा लगाये जाने की अवधि, इत्यादि निश्चित होता है |इन निर्देशों का पालन सही समय पर न करने से टीकाकरण विफल या निष्क्रिय हो जाता है |
१०. पोषण की स्तिथि- कुपोषण की वजह से जिन पशुओं में पोषक तत्वों की कमी रह जाती है उनमे टीकाकरण के बाद भी प्रतिरोधक छमता सामान्य तौर पे कम ही उत्पन्न हो पाती है |

10. क्या वैक्सीन लगते समय कुत्ते पर कोई दुस्प्रभाव हो सकते है? हाँ 
 कुछ कुत्तो प्रतिरोधक छमता अधिक सक्रिय होने की वजह से कुछ सामान्य लचण जैसे ज्वर, उल्टी, दस्त, लासीका ग्रंथियों का सूजना, मुख का सूजना, हीव्स, यकृत विफलता और कभी -कभी मौत भी हो सकती है।

Acute diarrhea is a disorder which leads to a person passing a number of watery stools. It may be accompanied by cramping pain in the abdomen and at times fever too. Food and water-borne bacteria, parasites and viruses cause such problems. Rapid loss of water in the form of watery stool can cause a situation known as dehydration which can disrupt the normal functioning of the body. Along with it, the essential salts (electrolytes) of the body are also lost. While the oral rehydration salts and fluids significantly reduce fatalities from dehydration, they do not treat the underlying infection that is causing diarrhoea. Homeopathic medicines Veratrum Album, Arsenic Album, Podophyllum lead the homeopathic table for treating diarrhoeas and provide quick relief to patients by eliminating the infection. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance Medicines will reach you via courier services.
