Ayurved - Science of Centuries For Centuries

Ayurved - Science of Centuries For Centuries

Ayurveda (ayush=life; vid=wisdom-sanskrit) is said to be the most ancient of medical systems. The ancient vedic tradition, cognized by the great indian seers, offers a wealth of knowledge for healthy and meaningful life. 1 since ayurveda (part of atharvaveda, the last of the four vedas) is timeless and unbounded it has relevance even to the present day. It was mark twain who once said: so far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make india the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked.

The philosophy of ayurveda believes that everything in this universe is composed of five elements, the panchbhootas. They, in turn, constitute the three doshas or bio-energetic forces that govern our health and determine our constitution. The trigunas or psychic forces determine our mental and spiritual health. Ayurveda teaches us to balance all these to live a healthy, happy and contented life.

Unlike modern medicine, ayurveda recognizes that the mind and body are but the two manifestations of the same consciousness-mind as the field of ideas and the body as the field of molecules and organs. Each tries to help keep the other working and healthy extracting nourishment from the environment. Elimination of impurities of the emotional wounds are as important as the elimination of the waste matter from the body to have true physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Modern risk factor hypothesis pales into insignificance in view of the most elaborate knowledge in ayurveda. Some of the recent additions to the modern medical list like hostility form the basis of the ayurvedic risk factors. Viz.

Khrodha, shoka, bhaya, aayaasa, virudhaanna bhojana,

Thaponnalaan, lavanakshara, rakta pitta prakopayeth

(anger, depression and sorrow, extreme fear, exhaustion, wrong foods, sedentary living, too much salt and spices lead to most major killer diseases)

The solution is also simple:

nithya hitha, mitha aahaara sevi, sameekshkaari, dhata samaha sathyapara

Kshamavaan aapthopasevi aarogyam.

(have food in moderation and that which pleases the mind. Do not cheat or tell lies. Work very hard. Forgive others even if they hurt you. Treat all as your own kith and kin. Health would be yours always.) 2

Vedic wisdom follows non-linear mathematics (vedic mathematics) and the laws akin to modern quantum physics. It is, therefore, the right approach for holistic assessment of health and disease. Its aims are not only to heal the sick, but also to preserve life by preventing illness-most complete system of health care known. 2

Ayurvedic treatment is based on restoring the disturbed balance of the three doshas-vata, pitta, and kapha - very much like the humors theory of hippocrates. It takes into consideration the whole human being, and not just the phenotype. The tridosha concept takes into consideration the phenotype, genotype as also the mind, in classifying patients. Consequently, treatment differs even for the same disease from individual to individual, based on the constitutional types.

Whereas billions of tons of water get displaced during the tidal changes in the oceans due to the gravitational pull of the moon, the human body, which is mostly water, could not be exempt from the effects of the planets. Ayurvedic astrology plays a large part in the total picture of disease and its cure. Many of us scientists who feel nauseated at the very mention of the word astrology would do well to know that isaac newton and gelileo were both practising astrologers. The science of astrology is good but not the astrologers predictions! most predictions, including the ones we make in scientific medicine, are just predicting the unpredictable.

Empirical knowledge, derived from long term prospective studies, form the basis of therapy in ayurveda, unlike the short term case-control studies or, even, cohort studies based on matching the controls, based on phentotypical features alone, as is done in modern medicine. Treatment is tailored to individual needs and could be broadly grouped into the following:

* detoxification-panchakarmas
* diet
* yoga
* herbal medications
* meditation and prayer (no particular god or book prescribed)

Hello, yes, bleeding during early pregnancy should not be taken lightly. Pregnancy test and sonogram should be done to find out the cause.

Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol

BHMS
Homeopath, Kolkata
Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol

For a long time cholesterol in totality was seen as a bad thing for your body although the truth was a little more complicated than that. Cholesterol primarily is divided into two types, one of which can be categorized as bad cholesterol and the other as good cholesterol. Let's have an in-depth look at both the categories.

LDL or Low Density Lipoprotein aka bad cholesterol: Cholesterol is a wax like chemical which is found all over the body and it has important functions to perform. Cholesterol is carried all over the body by Lipoproteins. The low density lipoproteins are denoted as bad cholesterol as they can accumulate on the walls of the blood vessels and cause blockages resulting in many ailments. LDL levels of 190 and above are considered dangerous. 

Some of the risks associated with it are:

  1. Heart disease
  2. Stroke
  3. Atherosclerosis
  4. peripheral artery disease among many others

HDL or High Density Lipoprotein aka good cholesterol: This is a form of cholesterol which is usually desired in higher quantities as it removes LDL from the system by dislodging it from the arteries and then carrying it through the bloodstream into the liver. The liver then breaks it down and removes it from the body. Thus, higher number of HDL cholesterol is always desirable. Some of the ideal numbers for HDL cholesterol within the body are:

For Women  - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl or lower
For Men - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl lower

The role of triglycerides:
Good and bad cholesterol levels also depend on the levels of triglycerides within the body and not just LDL or HDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat which are used to store energy within the body, but can also affect your health. It is most associated with atherosclerosis when the levels of triglycerides are high within the body. 

Some habits that contribute to high levels of it are:

  • Lack of physical activity
  • Obesity or being overweight
  • Excesses in alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Bad diet and others

Thus the good cholesterol vs bad cholesterol war also includes other factors, most of which can be easily changed by making subtle changes in lifestyle and incorporating healthier habits. This will increase the good cholesterol and the other relevant elements and reduce the bad.

Last 4 years I have pcod problem. After marriage this problem continues means I have no children sir. what can be done?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Chandigarh
If you are already diagnosed with pcod, you need to visit your gynaecologist for infertility evaluation to find if there is any other cause of your infertility other than pcod. Weight reduction and healthy lifestyle is the key for pcod. Get your usg pelvic organs done if not recently done for follicular /ovulation study and other tests like tsh, prolactin esr, cbc, tubal patency test. After the initial work up you will be required to undergo ovulation induction, its monitoring (with or without hcg injection) followed by timed intercourse/ iui.

Do not label yourself as having pcos. Pcos is not a life threatening disease like cancer. So forget pcos. Your ruminating habit needs to be broken as it prevents from you enjoying the moment while some snappy reactions are ok with youth, due to hormonal surges and emotional idealism, if you feel, you are getting on everyone's nerves, meet a psychiatrist or psychologist and they may help you with the problem. Do not think psychiatrist are only for loony people. They can help in conditions like what you are going through also.

I think he is suffering from chronic otitis media. Symptoms reccur after catching cold. He may have a small perforation in his tympanic membrane but must be confirmed by otological examination. He may need antibiotic ear dps. It heals with passage of time. Precations sud be taken to save him from frequent cold. Keep his ear dry and not allow water to go into his ears while bathing. Medication is required if there is active discharge from the ear.

These pills are very effective if taken within 24 hrs. There are highly remote chances of you being pregnant. Period might get delayed due to I pill itself, so there is no need to worry. Also, pregnancy test comes positive after overdue, usually after 28 days. I would say go for a repeat pregnancy test after 1 week if you don't get your menses.

8 Common Exercise Moves That Actually Work Against You

8 Common Exercise Moves That Actually Work Against You

People who regularly work out can go on about its benefits and also show off a toned physique. However, a bad or improper movement can be more harmful than no exercise at all. Read on to know some common exercise moves that are best avoided for their potential harmful effects.

  1. Dumbbell punches: By holding dumbbells and punching them forward into the air, you are just spending your energy with absolutely no return from it. It is good as a conditioning one if done for a long time, but does not help the shoulders or the arms. Bicep curls and triceps extensions yield much better results than these punches.
  2. Shoulder Shrugs: The only muscle that gets worked here is the trapezius, which is at the top of the shoulders and the neck. The arms and the back do not get any benefit and shoulder shrugs can actually cause postural problems and increase shoulder tension. Best avoided if you are not a professional bodybuilder.
  3. Thigh machines: One of the most ineffective machines in the gym, the poor posture and no workout for the abs is one of the reasons the outer and inner thigh workouts should be avoided. Better results can be achieved with squats and lunges, which also help more muscles and help in losing weight.
  4. Plank rows: While plank rows or board lines work very well for core strengthening, it is not as effective for back and arm strengthening. Better results are achieved with the usual lines for these areas.
  5. Lat pull-downs behind the neck: This can be very harmful for people who have even minor shoulder joint problems. The idea is to build arm, torso, and back muscles by pulling a weighted bar down the front and back of the chest area. This can cause misalignment, shoulder impingement, or a tear in the rotator cuff, and in severe cases, even cervical vertebral fracture.
  6. Military Presses Behind the Head: Similar to a lat pull-down, here also, a barbell is lifted up and down behind the head and can cause the same problems as the earlier one, including fracture of the cervical spine.
  7. Squatting on a bosu ball: These colorful equipment are very alluring but can be really dangerous and can cause ankles and knees to be injured, causing meniscal tears or disruptions.
  8. Crunches: When improperly done, crunches produce the same position as one achieves while working on the computer - head forward and rounded shoulder. Crunches are meant to be done by pulling up on the head and not using the abs, as most people incorrectly do.

Make sure you get a trainer's advice on the right ways to work out so as to get the maximum benefits and avoid injuries.

Hi Balgopal, backache could be due to pressure of the gravid uterus. Leg pain and cramps are common in pregnancy. Take rest and iron calcium supplements.

The patient you are talked about is sensitive mentally as well as physically. She is an introverted lady and her emotions leads to mental restlessness. She keeps on thinking about her pregnancy and some other things. If the above statement I made about her is true then make it a point do not go for any medication for vomiting only two things are helpful for her 1. Couselling 2. Homoeopathic medication.

My girlfriend having severe menstruation pain. She is still virgin. Does intercourse helps in reduction of the pain?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
If you are experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding, try using a cold compress. The cold temperature will cause vasoconstriction, which means constriction of the blood vessels. This will help reduce the flow of blood as well as pain in the lower abdomen. 1. Put a few ice cubes in a thin towel and tie it properly. 2. Place it over your abdomen for 15 to 20 minutes. 3. Lie down for some time and try to relax. 4. If needed, repeat the remedy every 4 hours for as long as the symptoms continue. Any queries inform me.
