Importance of Panchkarma Therapies for Belly Fat Reduction!

Importance of Panchkarma Therapies for Belly Fat Reduction!

Introduction to Panchkarma therapy: Panchkarma is not only a common term in today’s Ayurveda treatment, it has been put to use from the time of Acharya Susruta. While Ayurveda is a genuine and very effective field of medicine, its therapies are also to the point. Panchkarma, by definition, is a spa, or power massage with Ayurvedic help. It keeps the whole body fit and healthy by curing and also preventing diseases. It eliminates doshas and malas from the body and purifies the skin. Ayurvedic massage experts perform this therapy skillfully with dry herbal powder or herbal paste and medicated oil. They give the rubbing and strokes in the opposite direction of a conventional massage.

Brief Description: As the name says, Panchkarma is a combination of five different processes that are acted one after another. They are-

  1. Vamana (Emetic therapy)
  2. Virecana (Purgative therapy)
  3. Nasya (Inhalation therapy or Errhine)
  4. Anuvasana basti (Type of Enema)
  5. Niruha basti (Type of Enema)

These processes eliminate Kapha, Pitta and Vata and bring tenderness to the body. Before all these processes, it is important to check if the patient is physically and mentally capable of undergoing the treatment. So there are some pre-monitoring procedures where one must take the necessary precautions and diet. There are also post-treatment measures that consist of some special medicines and procedures.

Works in Belly Fat Reduction: Even though Panchkarma therapy mainly removes toxins from the skin, still Ayurvedic doctors have recommended it for fat reduction too. It reduces fat by removing the excess cellulite accumulated under the skin. The power massage gives rubbing strokes on certain pressure points for fat loss. There are two types of actions-

  1. Snigadh
  2. Ruksha

According to Susruta Samhita, there are three categories of actions-

  1. Utsadana
  2. Udgharshana
  3. Udvartana

Herbs Used In Panchkarma for Fat Loss: Amalaki, Bibhitaki and Haritaki are three herbs that are called Triphala. They are used to reduce cellulite and fat by rubbing and massaging as a paste on the body. All these three should be mixed in equal proportions before applying.

The formulas of pastes are different for Kapha-type and Pitta-type people.

Kapha: Ingredients Proportion

  • Amalaki 20%
  • Bibhitaki 20%
  • Haritaki 20%
  • Soap nut 10%
  • Pushkarmool 5%
  • Dried Ginger 5%
  • Vacha 5%
  • Black pepper 5%
  • Long pepper 5%
  • Barley 5%

Pitta: Ingredients Proportion

  • Nut grass 50%
  • Barley 20%
  • Amalaki 15%
  • Tagara 5%
  • Haritaki 5%
  • Gotu Kola 5%

There are two other formulas for fat reduction in Panchkarma-

  1. Kolakulathadi Choornam
  2. Kottamchukkadi Choornam

Pros and Cons:
Clearly, Ayurveda is a better option than chemical medicines because it does not harm the body in any way and it makes the skin beautiful. Although there may be a little pain, excessive dryness, thirst, weakness and stiffness as side effects of the therapy.

To conclude, even if there are some cons, Ayurveda is always better than anything else. So Panchkarma therapy is a well-recommended option for belly fat reduction.

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

Best Tips To Reduce Hair Fall

Twenty best tips to reduce hair fall and hair loss.

  • Do no harm! start by avoiding too many chemicals- dyes, colours, conditioners, spa treatments and styling products.
  • Avoid styling and hair treatments. They make the hair brittle and dry. Avoid using hair straighteners, hair curlers and blow dryers on a regular basis.
  • Pop proteins! our hair shaft is made up of protein so the best thing you can do is to include loads of protein rich food in the diet. These include milk, dairy products, meats, eggs, nuts, pulses and protein shakes.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink loads of water, it not only improves growth but promotes healthy hair.
  • Go green! fresh fruits, veggies and green leafy vegetables give all your trace vitamins and minerals like zinc and magnesium that are important for your hair.
  • Include vitamin c in diet. Vitamin c helps to maintain hair strength and lustre. Good sources of vitamin c include oranges, lemons, amla and other citrus fruits.
  • Iron is required for hair growth and hair lustre. Ask your family physician to prescribe you iron supplements if you have deficiency symptoms.
  • The thumb rule is never to overwash your hair. Washing hair is necessary to remove dirt and grime, however, too much washing can strip the scalp of natural oils.
  • Wash your hair once in three days to avoid dirt and sweat. This also minimises scalp infections.
  • When washing your hair, avoid hot water as it can leave hair follicles open, encouraging breakage and hair fall.
  • Use a shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair.
  • Massaging your hair and scalp with oil is good for moisturisation and nourishment. It helps to keep the scalp healthy and well hydrated. Make sure you wash it off before you step outdoors.
  • Hair is most susceptible to breakage when wet. So don't comb your hair roughly when wet.
  •  Do not rub vigorously with a towel after shower. This only encourages more breakage of hair.
  • Use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair after a wash. It reduces breakage.
  • Refrain from tying your hair in tight pony tails or tight pigtails. This can lead to traction alopecia which is a type of hair loss.
  • Though difficult to practise, it is important. Avoid stress and stressful conditions. Practise meditation techniques and yogaasana. This keeps your hair loss under control as also promotes overall health and well-being.
  • Quit smoking as smoking causes reduced blood flow to the scalp which can hamper hair growth.
  • Use hair packs containing coconut milk to promote hair growth.
  • Natural homemade hair packs are good, however, another good option is a hair spa which includes deep moisturisation of hair. This prevents breakage and split ends.
  • Lastly, if hairfall is severe under medical guidance, you can have medications such asminoxidil which stimulate hair growth.
  • These simple tips are easy to follow and it is recommended to follow them regularly for easy results.

General Physician, Secunderabad

Spondyloarthritis (also known as spondyloarthropathy) is the term which describes the connective tissue diseases. It is the group of inflammatory diseases, including arthritis of the peripheral joints and spine (sacroiliitis or spondylitis); including the area where ligaments and tendons attach to bones (enthesitis or enthesopathy). These diseases cause pain or stiffness in the leg or arm joints, spine, ligaments and tendons become inflamed. Skin rashes, eye, and intestinal problems may also be able to occur.?


  • Spondyloarthritis is a pathology that specifically strikes young people. The symptoms most frequently start before the age of 45. It affects more males than females.
  • Predisposition to spondyloarthritis, especially spa, is determined largely by genetic factors.
  • The incidence rate is higher in populations with a higher prevalence of hla-b27.
  • Psoriatic skin lesions and colitis due to inflammatory bowel disease (ibd) have been considered as both basic, subtype-defining entities with their own genetic background (distinct from hla-b27 genotype), and as manifestations of spondyloarthritis.
  • There is a strong need to diagnose patients with spa in an earlier stage; currently, there is a delay of 5–10 years between onset of the first symptoms and diagnosis.


There are five types of spondyloarthritis

Ankylosing spondylitis or bechterew disease: it is the type of arthritis that affects the spine. Symptoms include pain and stiffness in the lower back and in the neck. Spine bones fuse together and it will become rigid spine and it leads to stoope over posture.

?Psoriatic arthritis: psoriatic arthritis is the form of arthritis that affects the people who have psoriasis. Most people diagnosed with psoriasis and later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. It may affect any part of the body such as fingertips and spine. The main symptoms are joint pain, stiffness, and swelling.

?Psoriatic arthritis

Reactive arthritis: it occurs due to the infection by certain bacteria. Often the bacteria’s from genitals (chlamydia trachomatis) or bowel (campylobacter, salmonella, shigella, and yersinia). It usually targets your knees and joints of ankles or feet.

?Reactive arthritis

Undifferentiated arthritis: undifferentiated inflammatory arthritis does not conform to any of the recognized inflammatory arthritis types. It may include monoarthritis of a single joint; oligoarthritis, which is usually when four or fewer joints are involved; or polyarthritis, which usually involves many small joints.

Risk factors

Risk factors may be higher due to following reasons:

  • Family member having the gene which causes spondyloarthritis
  • Positive results for the hla-b27 gene
  • Recurring bacterial infection in your gut
  • Have other inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis or inflammatory bowel disease


  • The main cause is not known, but researchers pointed out that the hereditary genetics playing an important role in this disease. Since this disease occurs often in family members of patients who have spondyloarthritis.
  • Many genes cause it. Up to 30 genes have been found. But the major gene that causes spondyloarthritis is hla-b27.
  • Bacterial infections can also cause reactive spondyloarthritis known to be triggered by a bacteria chlamydia or food borne infections.

Symptoms and complications of spondyloarthritis

The first and major symptoms of all types of spondyloarthritis are severe low back pain, swelling of arms, stiffness, and fatigue. The different types of spondyloarthritis can be manifested by the following signs and symptoms.

  • Alternative or unilateral buttock pain
  • Arthritis in small joints
  • Arthritis in large joints such as knee joint, ankle joint and elbow joint (peripheral arthritis)
  • Numbness and tingling sensation in arms and legs
  • Spinal fusion may occur in ankylosing spondylitis
  • Inflammation at the interfaces between bone and tendon or ligament of limbs (enthesitis)
  • Inflammation of intestine, urinary tract and aortic heart valves. These can lead to spinal joints inflammation.
  • Inflammation of joints in pelvis and spine (sacroiliitis)
  • Enteropathic arthritis shows symptoms such as diarrhea and abdominal pain
  • Digestive problems
  • Skin disease like psoriasis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Redness of eye (iritis)
  • Swollen fingers and
  • Pain in the heels cause difficult to walk, stand even for small duration

Diagnosis and testing

First a doctor may ask for patient’s medical history, physical exam and may suspects for symptoms of spondyloarthritis. To confirm doctor may perform the following diagnosis and tests.

  • X-rays: x-ray images shows the change of the sacroiliac joints in the pelvis and fusion of spine. If these changes not observed, but symptoms shows spondyloarthritis doctor will suggest mri scan. Mri shows these changes more promptly than the x-ray.
  • Mri scans: it can show a very clear image of enthesitis and also the changes of sacroiliac joints.
  • Ct scans: ct also used for the imaging of bone joints.
  • Hla-b27: most patients with spondyloarthritis have hla-b27 gene, but some people don’t have this gene. So it is necessary to go for a hla-b27 test if the symptoms suspects spondyloarthritis.
  • Complete blood count (cbc): cbc can be useful to find the inflammation.
  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound scanning: ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce the images of inflammatory conditions of muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (dexa) scans: used for measuring the bone mineral density usually the bones of the lower spine and hips. Bone loss is measured through this technique.

Treatment of spondyloarthritis.

  • There is no way to cure this disease condition, but there are treatments to counterparts the symptoms.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: certain nsaid’s like naproxen, ibuprofen, meloxicam, or indomethacin are prescribed by doctors to relief from the pain due to symptoms.
  • Corticosteroid medication: inflammation around the tendons and in the joints can be overcome by taking some corticosteroid drugs. This helps to reduce the swelling in the joints.
  • Antibiotics: antibiotics can be used in the case of reactive spondyloarthritis in which bacteria cause the major problems.
  • Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (dmard’s): sulfasalazine (azulfidine) and methotrexate are the best dmard’s to be used for the joint damages in limbs affected by arthritis.
  • Tumor necrosis alpha (tnf-alpha) blockers: fda approved tnab are adalimumab (humira), adalimumab-atto (amjevita), a biosimilar to humira, certolizumab pegol (cimzia), etanercept (enbrel), etanercept-szzs (ereizi), a biosimilar to enbrel, golimumab (simponi), infliximab (remicade), infliximab-dyyb (inflectra), a biosimilar to remicade, and secukinimab (cosentyx). These are biosimilars used to treat arthritis in spine joints.
  • Surgery: patients with over inflammation of pelvis joints needs hip replacement. In the case of heavy damage in the cartilage of joints needs surgery to repair. In some rare cases, spinal surgery also needed.

Prevention and control measures

  • Prevention from spondyloarthritis needed some lifestyle changes as follows.
