Hello Lybrate user, Check what is the triggering factor of your problem and try to avoid it. 1. Check with stress is causing Headache then you will have to manage your lifestyle. 2. Long term Acidity can also be a cause for Headache so you have to take care of it using ayurvedic medicines for best results. 3. Increase in eye problem i.e. check whether you eye no. has increased if you have specks. 4. Avoid oily, spicy and salty food in your diet. Avoid heavy to digest items like nonveg, bread, pizza etc. 5. Drink less tea if you drink it too much. 6. In you food add 1/2 tsp of ghee like in on your roti or in rice. 7. Do not consume alcohol/ carbonated drinks as they tend to increase Headache in long run. 8. Add amount of almonds, whole grain seeds, fruits n vegetables in diet. Stay hydrated. 9. Due to excess anger and stress, Headache aggravates in many patient. 10. Don't stay awake late night or sleep in day time as both increase stress in body. 11. Do you have gas n constipation problem if yes that should be treated first. Ayurvedic treatment is very effective in this problem get in touch with me on Lybrate for further guidance.

Ayurveda and Autism

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Ayurveda and Autism

Autism is defined as a Neurobiological pervasive development disorder that includes lack of social skills and inability to reciprocate to social interactions. The patient may also have intellectual and cognitive deficits and problems in communication (verbal as well as non-verbal).

Ayurveda is the oldest study of medicine and has proved to be very effective when it comes to managing and treating those affected by autism. The earlier an autistic person resorts to Ayurveda, the more effective it is.

Ayurvedic drink recipe for treating the symptoms of autism: (should be taken daily)

  1. 1/3 cup of yogurt
  2. 3/4 cup of water
  3. Cumin
  4. Coriander
  5. Ginger

Or

  1. Diluted Fresh Pomegranate Juice

Ayurveda in Curbing Aggression:
Autism includes heightened aggression and aversion from social interaction due to a neurological condition that impairs the functioning of the brain. Not all autistic patients are violent towards others, but may express their frustration by self-harm and emotional outbursts. One can curb these emotional outbursts by taking herbal supplements. An Ayurvedic herb called Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) which is known for its, anti-anxiety, neuroprotection and antioxidant properties can help considerably.

Regular massages using sandalwood, rose, lavender and gotu kola oils are also very calming and relieving, because it stimulates the blood flow and neuronal responses. Massage also helps in increasing eye contact and social relatedness, less stereotypical behavior and improved sleep.

Ayurvedic Herbs for Autism:

  1. Brahmi; Scientifically known as Bacopa monnieri, Brahmi is an important herb that delays the process of forgetting and improves memory. Not only does Brahmi improve memory, but also increases the grasping power, intellect and speech and also corrects the abnormality of emotions, personality and mood of an autistic individual. It also helps in performing complex tasks such as comprehension, reasoning and learning.
  2. Ashwagandha: Scientifically known as Withania somnifera, Ashwagandha has high affinity for gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors. Low GABA activity is related to cognitive impairment.
  3. Shankhapushpi: Scientifically known as Convolvulus pluricaulis, Shankhapushpi is very effective in improving learning and memory and is highly effective in treating insanity and epilepsy
  4. Centella asiatica: This Ayurvedic herb is used as a medication for insanity, speech disorders and epilepsy, making it a very useful drug for treating autism.

Neck and Shoulder Pain

(M.D.Accu), Diploma in Naturopathy & Yogic Science YS)
Acupuncturist, Delhi
Neck and Shoulder Pain

Top 6 acupressure points for treating neck and shoulder pain: moving a little down from the head is the neck, a very important body part indeed, although the head is the site of the brain, but it is the neck that has the power to turn it whichever way it wants. But with modern day technology and computer-centric lifestyle we are more often plagued with pains and discomfort in the neck and shoulder region which is often the cause of throbbing headaches as well. All the points situated in the head and neck regions are yang points, with excessive energy flow through them and reflexology can be used effectively in providing permanent relief to discomfort and nasty pains in these regions.

Causes of neck and shoulder pain: the causes of neck and shoulder pain and stiffness are many and can range from silly reasons like sleeping in a wrong posture to serious ones like arthritis and meningitis which can leave us with a sore and painful neck for several days.

Neck massage
Some of the common causes of neck pain are:

Poor sitting posture
Poor sleeping posture
Muscle strain
Overexertion
Sprain
Neck pain
In all these cases it is usual to feel discomfit to numbing pains in the neck and shoulder region which is easily cured with simple exercises within a few days. But in some cases, the neck pain can be persistent, for several days or weeks with a stiffness that can spread to shoulders, back and even lead to headache.

Some serious causes of neck and shoulder pain include:

Meningitis: inflammation of meninges around the brain
Arthritis: cervical spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis
Such cases call for immediate medical attention by professionals.

Acupressure to soothe neck and shoulder pains:

Neck and shoulder pains can be quite menacing and hinder our day to day activities, but instead of restoring to temporary solutions like pain killers use reflexology to heal the ailment from within and move towards overall wellness and complete harmony between mind and body.

Acupressure is a complete healing therapy that is rooted in ancient eastern healing arts which help in curing the mid and irritating as well as the all-consuming throbbing pains that have become a part of modern life. It helps in relieving stress and bringing back balance in our life. These 6 simple acupressure points can be stimulated on your own or a therapeutic acupressure session can be given to a loved one in order to relieve pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulder.

Shoulder well: this point is located on the shoulder muscle, halfway between the base of the neck and the end of the shoulder muscle. Stimulating this point helps in relieving stiffness of neck and shoulder. It also helps in relieving back pain.

Completion bone: this point is located on the occipital ridge, in the depression behind the ear in the SCM muscle. Stimulating this point helps in relieving headache, neck pain and dizziness.

Heaven's pillar: this point is located on the occipital ridge, just at the side of where the spine enters the skull in the tendon. Stimulating this point helps in relieving neck pains, numbness, and stiffness of the neck. Stimulating this region also helps in relieving chronic cough.

Masturbation is a very common addiction in your age. Try to indulge in sports and go for jogging etc. Avoid watching porn videos and the stuff which makes you masturbate. Don't be lonely and always keep yourself busy. Try to deviate yourself from sexual thoughts. Avoid lying prone and supine positions that can make you masturbate. Try to lie in side lying. Before getting to bathroom prepare yourself not to masturbate and rush out immediately after the bath. Try these which can help you out of that. For more ways you can contact me privately.
