Ayurvedic Approach for Treating Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)

Ayurvedic Approach for Treating Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a type of arthritis that affects the spine. This chronic disease is caused due to inflammation of the joints in the spine and usually affects young men. It causes the vertebrae to grow or fuse together, causing a rigid spine. Actually, it affects the discs in between the vertebral column. These discs get swollen, causing a limitation of spine motility. It is an autoimmune disorder and its symptoms are lower back pain and stiffness, which usually moves to the legs.

  • The deformity due to AS can be mild or severe. In extreme cases, the patient gets a stooped spine. 
  • Early diagnosis can prevent significant deformity as well as help in controlling the pain and stiffness.
  • Allopathy doesn’t really know the real reasons for this disease and here is where Ayurveda scores.
  • According to Ayurveda, AS is caused due to aggravated vata or wind, which causes an imbalance in vata dosha.

Ayurvedic treatment
Ayurvedic treatment starts with detoxification and elimination of toxins. It relies heavily on the right diet and lifestyle as well as Ayurvedic herbal preparations. The panchakarma techniques called kati vasti, sarvangadhara and patrapinda svedana are very beneficial too. The basic explanation for the disorder is that AS occurs due to an accumulation of ama or toxins in the body. Where ever ama deposits in the body, pain is caused. Ayurvedic treatments aim at digesting the ama by using herbs as medicine and balancing the aggravated vata.

  1. Herbs used in the treatment of AS are dry ginger (saunth), guggul, turmeric, fenugreek, ashwagandha and giloy. Gugul, curcumin, amlaki, haritaki, and ashwagandha are all very effective in treating AS.
  2. Avoid getting constipated and ensure proper evacuation of bowels.
  3. Include ghee in your diet for lubrication and for lowering the vata dosha.
  4. Apply heat on the affected areas to control the pain and stiffness.
  5. Eat light foods and strictly avoid oily foods and curd which increase ama.
  6. Avoid sleeping during the daytime.
  7. Yoga asanas like pawana muktasana, bhujangasana, dhanurasana, paschimottanasana and vakrasana should be practised regularly.
  8. The practice of pranayamas such as and shodhana, chandrabhedi sheethali and bhramari also helps.
  9. Chewing 2–3 raw garlic buds on an empty stomach in the morning with water helps in alleviating lumbar pain in AS.
  10. Use a powdered preparation of dried ginger root, celery seeds and cumin seeds in equal quantities with rock salt for taste, and have one teaspoon of this mixture with warm water at bedtime to reduce flatulence as well as lumbar stiffness. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Swollen Gums Treatment in Hindi - मसूड़ों की सूजन से राहत पाने के प्राकृतिक उपचार

अक्सर देखा जाता है कि कई लोगों के मसूड़ों में सूजन आ जाता है. लेकिन इस बीमारी की शुरुआत को जिंजिवाइटिस के नाम से जाना जाता है. जिंजिवाइटिस के दौरान मसूड़ों में सूजन आ जाती है और उनसे खून बहने लगता है. यहाँ तक कि ये खून ब्रश या फ्लॉस करते समय कभी-कभी अपने-आप ही निकल पड़ता है. इकई बार ऐसा भी होता है कि मसूड़ों पर चोट लगने या अधिक गर्म पदार्थ व सख्त चीज़ें खाने से मसूड़ों पर पड़ने वाले दबाव के कारण भी मसूड़ों में सूजन उत्पन्न हो जाती है. इससे आपके मसूड़े ढीले-ढाले पड़ जातें हैं जिससे दांतों का काफी नुकसान हो सकता है. यदि समय पर इसका इलाज नहीं किया जाए तो दांत हिलकर गिरने लगते हैं. और फिर इसके कारण हम अपना मन पसंद खाना भी नहीं खा पाते हैं. इसलिए आइए मसूड़ों की सूजन से राहत पाने के प्राकृतिक उपचार के लिए कुछ उपायों को जानें.

मसूड़ों की सूजन का कारण

  • जिंजिवीटीज – जिंजिवीटीज के कारण भी कई बार हमारे मसूड़ों में सूजन आने लगती है. जिसका मुख्य कारण जिंजिवीटीज होता है. जबभी हमारे मसूड़ों में सूजन होता इसके उपरांत हमें अनेक परेशानियों का सामना करना पड़ता है. कभी-कभी यह समस्या इतनी विकराल हो जाती है कि हमारे दांत भी गिरने लगते हैं.
  • पोषक तत्वों की कमी – हमारे शरीर में पोषक तत्वों की कमी की वजह से कई तरह की परेशानियाँ उत्पन्न होने लगे हैं. इसकी वजह से कई बार हमारे मसूड़ों में सूजन आने लगती है जिसके द्वारा व्यक्ति को काफी तकलीफों का सामना करना पड़ता है.
  • संक्रमण – मसूड़ों में होने वाले सूजन का एक कारण मुंह में होने वाल संक्रमण भी हो सकता है. इस संक्रमण  के कारण हमारे मसूड़ों में सूजन के साथ-साथ दर्द भी होने लगता है.

मसूड़ों के सूजन को दूर करने के उपाय

  • बबूल की छाल – यदि आप मसूड़ों में होने वाले सूजन से बचना चाहते हैं तो आपको भी बबूल की छाल के उपयोग करना चाहिए. इससे मसूड़ों के सूजन को आसानी से समाप्त किया जा सकता है. इसके लिए बबूल की छाल के काढ़े से कुल्‍ला करें. इससे आपके मसूड़ों की सूजन कम होने लगेगती है.
  • अरंडी का तेल और कपूर – यदि आप अरंडी के तेल में थोड़ी मात्रा में कपूर मिला कर प्रतिदिन सुबह तथा शाम मसूड़ों की मालिश करें तो ऐसा करके भी मसूड़ों की सूजन कम होने लगती है.
  • अजवायन – अजवायन का उपयोग भी मसूड़ों की सूजन को दूर करने के लिए एक अच्छा विकल्प है. इसके लिए अजवायन को तवे पर भून कर पीसने के बाद इसमें 2-3 बूंद राई का तेल मिला कर हल्‍का-हल्‍का मसूड़ों पर मलें.  ऐसा करने से मसूड़ों को आराम मिलता है साथ ही दांतों के अन्य रोग भी दूर किए जा सकते हैं.
  • अदरक और नमक – मसूड़ों से सम्बंधित समस्याओं को दुर करने के लिए थोड़े से अदरख में थोड़ा नमक मिलकर इसे अच्छे से पीस कर मिला लें. अब इस मिश्रण से धीरे-धीरे मसूड़ों को मले. इससे मसूड़ों की सूजन कम होने लगेगी.
  • नींबू का रस - नींबू के रस को ताजे पानी में नींबू में डाल लें. इसके बाद बाद इस पानी से कुल्‍ला करें. कुछ दिन इसका प्रयोग करें इससे मसूड़ों की सूजन दूर होने के साथ-साथ मुंह की दुर्गन्ध भी दूर होने लगती है.
  • प्याज - प्याज मसूड़ों की सूजन को दूर करने का अच्छा उपाय है. इसके सेवन के लिए प्याज में नमक मिलाकर खाने से एवं प्याज को पीसकर मसूड़ों पर दिन में करीब तीन बार मलने से मसूड़ों की सूजन ख़त्म हो जाती है तथा मसूड़े स्वस्थ बने रहते हैं.
  • फिटकरी - फिटकरी का प्रयोग भी मसूड़ों की सूजन को दूर करने का अच्छा उपाय है. इसके लिए फिटकरी के चूर्ण को मसूड़ों पर मले इससे मसूड़ों की सूजन को कम किया जा सकता है.

Why Do Gums Bleed While Brushing Teeth?

MD-Internal Medicine , MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Why Do Gums Bleed While Brushing Teeth?

Did you notice blood from your gums in the morning while brushing or flossing? There are plenty of reasons behind bleeding gums. Some may be temporary while some may be severe. Here are some reasons which may be responsible for the bleeding of your gums.

  1. GingivitisGingivitis is the first and most initial stage of infection in the gums. A small amount of plaque and poor hygiene results in this condition which often leads to bleeding gums especially when you brush your teeth. But since this is the initial stage, brushing your teeth twice a day and maintain proper oral hygiene will cure the bleeding gums.
  2. Plaque: When plaque build-up on your gums becomes too much, it makes the gums come out from the teeth, and a gap develops thus causing bleeding. In the pockets that are formed between the gums and teeth, germs start accumulating. These germs start attacking the teeth and gums. When more and more germs accumulate, the bleeding also increases. With time this plaque become hard. The hardened plaque is called tartar. This stage is actually the second stage of gingivitis and is called the periodontitis.
  3. Medication: People who take medication for blood thinning usually experience bleeding gum problems. But you must be thinking how medicines can lead to bleeding gums? But the thing is that these medicines stop the blood from clotting and thus bleeding becomes much easier. If you face such a condition, pay a visit to your doctor and tell him about your medications.
  4. Change in Flossing Routine: A change in the regular flossing routine can also cause lead to bleeding gums. This has been reported in many patients. Suppose you haven’t flossed you teeth in the past few days or week and then you suddenly start your routine all over again then you are bound to have bleeding gums because your gums were habituated to a certain routine which you changed abruptly. The same condition will arise if you suddenly start flossing more times a day than you used to. Nothing unusual is good for your teeth. You should always be on a constant and regular flossing routine. However, bleeding due to flossing won’t continue forever.
  5. Change in Toothbrush: A change in your toothbrush may also lead to bleeding of gums. This happens because when you use a toothbrush for a considerable period, it becomes soft, but when you start using the new one, it is usually harder than the old one. This causes the gums to bleed. So always use a soft toothbrush, and if you are not so confident about the type of toothbrush you should use, talk to your dentist about it.
  6. PregnancyA type of gingivitis results at the time of pregnancy. Women experience bleeding from their gums and the gums swell considerably which happens mostly due to hormonal changes.

You should never give any unnecessary pressure on your gums and maintain a proper oral hygiene.

Oral Cancer - 11 Serious Signs You Must Never Ignore!

Oral Cancer - 11 Serious Signs You Must Never Ignore!

Oral cancer is the name given to cancer that develops in the tissues of the mouth or oral cavity. If you interact with a specialist, you will know that oral cancers belong to a larger group of cancers called head and neck cancers. And more importantly, oral cancers are one of the most preventable cancers. You may already be aware that cancers develop when cells begin to divide indiscriminately forming malignant tumors. In oral cancers, the dividing cells are the ‘squamous’ cells found in the lining of your mouth, tongue, and lips.

An implausible fact about oral cancers is that these are most often discovered after they have spread to the lymph nodes of the neck- which means at the stages III and IV. All cancers including oral cancers become more difficult to cure at these later stages. This is why early detection is key to surviving oral cancer.

Types of oral cancers

  1. Oral cancers, to be precise, including cancers of the:
  2. Lips
  3. Tongue
  4. Gums
  5. Cheek
  6. Floor of the mouth
  7. Roof of the mouth, including hard and soft palate

Usually, it’s your dentist who is the first to notice the first signs of oral cancer.

Risk factors
Tobacco use is the biggest risk factor for oral cancer. Tobacco includes smoking cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, and pipes, as well as chewing tobacco. Alcohol is another big risk factor. So, if you are one of those heavy drinkers, be aware of the scourge of oral cancer and get yourself tested periodically to rule out this killer. The risk for oral cancer also increases exponentially when both alcohol and tobacco are used together.

Other important risk factors are:

  1. HPV infection i.e. human papillomavirus is a sexually transmitted virus that spreads through unprotected vaginal as well oral sex
  2. Chronic sun exposure on the face, especially the lips
  3. Family history of oral or other types of cancer
  4. Men are more susceptible to oral cancers
  5. Being older than 45
  6. Radiation exposure
  7. Having any other form of head and neck cancer

Symptoms of oral cancer

  1. Sore lip or mouth that is not healing
  2. Any growth inside your mouth
  3. Bleeding from the mouth, including jaws
  4. Loose teeth
  5. Difficulty or pain while swallowing
  6. Major trouble wearing dentures
  7. A lump in neck or cheek
  8. Chronic earache
  9. Serious weight loss
  10. Numbness in lower lip, face, neck, or chin
  11. Any colored patch in the mouth or lips

Diagnosis of oral cancer

  1. Diagnosis starts with a physical exam of your mouth. The physician will examine the roof and floor of your mouth, the back of your throat, tongue, and cheeks, and the lymph nodes in your neck.
  2. If your doctor finds any tumor, growth, or suspicious lesions in your mouth, she/he will perform a biopsy to collect cells from a tumor. This tissue is then examined for cancerous cells.
  3. Other tests include X-rays to see if cancer cells have spread to your jaw, chest, or lungs; a CT scan to check for and reveal any tumors in your mouth; PET scan to see whether the cancer has traveled to the lymph nodes or other organs like the lungs.

Prevention

  1. An excess of sun exposure on your face and lips increases the risk of oral cancer so you can start reducing the danger of getting this cancer by using a lip balm or cream with SPF regularly.
  2. Another way to reduce risk is alcohol and tobacco cessation.
  3. Eating a balanced diet containing fruits and vegetables
  4. Removing your dentures at night and using them the next day only after cleaning them
  5. Visiting your dentist on a regular basis so that she/he can warn you about any alarming change in your mouth.

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