I have psoriasis problem for more than 10 years. I almost stop those food which I found are the main triggers for psoriasis attack to my body. However, I found that stress & some type of clothes are also causes for the allergy. I had tried some ayurvedic medicine but it can't cure totally. Also, I always keep citrazin or livosis tablet in my wallet so that whenever required I can take the medicine. Someone please. Give me some home remedy or ayurvedic treatment. Thanks.

Understanding Jaundice (Kamala)

Understanding Jaundice (Kamala)

Jaundice (also known as icterus) is a yellowish pigmentation of the skin, the conjunctival membranes over the sclera (whites of the eyes), and other mucous membranes caused by hyperbilirubinemia (increased levels of bilirubin in the blood). This hyperbilirubinemia subsequently causes increased levels of bilirubin in the extracellular fluid. Concentration of bilirubin in blood plasma does not normally exceed 1 mg/dl (gt 17 x00b5 mol/l). A concentration higher than 1.8 mg/dl (gt 30 x00b5 mol/l) leads to jaundice. This is a brief presentation on jaundice and its ayurvedic management.

Jaundice, also known as icterus is a disease caused due to the dysfunction of the liver. It is the most common of all liver disorders that results from an obstruction in the bile duct or the loss of the bile producing liver cells. Jaundice refers to the yellowing of skin and whites of the eyes caused by the high level of pigment bilirubin in the body. Bile is a vital digestive fluid that is essential for proper nutrition. It is unable to function properly and filtering and elimination of toxins from your system is affected.

Jaundice is caused mainly by the dysfunctional liver or other liver diseases. In tropical countries jaundice is more likely to happen because of the extreme nature of summer heat and digestive difficulties that it causes. Chronic digestive disorders like bowels inflammatory syndromes, gastric problems also play bigger roles in causing the disease. In relation to these internal causes jaundice can be of various types. Apart from this hepatitis virus can cause some major types of jaundice which can be potential life threats. Obstructive jaundice is another type of jaundice which is caused by obstruction caused in the liver function to relieve the bilirubin from the body. Pregnancy related jaundice and jaundice at child birth are other types of jaundice which is more common in pregnant women. Before introducing some of the major types of jaundice, for a better clinical understanding of the disease let us take a look at the basic process which causes jaundice.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors:
Every day, a small number of red blood cells in your body die, and are replaced by new ones. The liver removes the old blood cells, forming bilirubin. The liver helps break down bilirubin so that it can be removed by the body in the stool. This waste product is called bilirubin and when liver cannot perform its assigned function of relieving this waste product from our organic process the higher amount of presence of this chemical substance in the blood is felt and this is how the jaundice occurs. All major types of jaundice can have different areas of reasoning for the malfunction of the production process and relieving process of bilirubin, but the basic facts related with the bilirubin and its effects are all same in all minor or major types of jaundice

When too much bilirubin builds up in the body, jaundice may result.

Jaundice is caused due to following causes:
Obstruction of the bile ducts (by infection, tumor or gallstones)
Viral hepatitis (hepatitis a, hepatitis b, hepatitis c, hepatitis d, and hepatitis e)
Drug-induced cholestasis (bile pools in the gallbladder because of the effects of drugs)
Drug-induced hepatitis (hepatitis triggered by medications, including erythromycin sulfa drugs, antidepressants, anti-cancer drugs, aldomet, rifampin, steroids, chlorpropamide, tolbutamide, oral contraceptives, testosterone, propylthiouracil)
Biliary stricture
Alcoholic liver disease (alcoholic cirrhosis)
Pancreatic carcinoma (cancer of the pancreas)
Primary biliary cirrhosis
Ischemic hepatocellular jaundice (jaundice caused by inadequate oxygen or inadequate blood flow to the liver)
Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (bile pools in the gallbladder because of the pressure in the abdomen with pregnancy)
Haemolytic anemia
Congenital disorders of bilirubin metabolism (gilbert’s syndrome, dubin-johnson syndrome, rotor’s syndrome)
Chronic active hepatitis
Autoimmune hepatitis
Malaria


Jaundice is often a sign of a problem with the liver, gallbladder, or pancreas. Infections, use of certain drugs, cancer, blood disorders, gallstones, birth defects and a number of other medical conditions can lead to jaundice.

Clinical symptoms:
Jaundice may appear suddenly or develop slowly over time. Common symptoms of jaundice commonly include:


Yellow skin and the white part of the eyes (sclera) -- when jaundice is more severe, these areas may look brown 
Yellow color inside the mouth
Dark or brown-colored urine
Pale or clay-colored stools

Other symptoms depend on the disorder causing the jaundice:
Cancers may produce no symptoms, or there may be fatigue, weight loss, or other symptoms

Hepatitis may produce nausea, vomiting, fatigue, or other symptoms.

Differential diagnosis:
When a pathological process interferes with the normal functioning of the metabolism and excretion of bilirubin just described, jaundice may be the result. Jaundice is classified into three categories, depending on which part of the physiological mechanism the pathology affects.

Pre-hepatic jaundice: it is caused by anything which causes an increased rate of hemolysis (breakdown of red blood cells).

Laboratory findings include:
Urine: no bilirubin present, urobilinogen gt; 2 units (i.e. hemolytic anemia causes increased heme metabolism; exception: infants where gut flora has not developed).
Serum: increased unconjugated bilirubin.
Kernicterus is associated with increased unconjugated bilirubin.

Hepatocellular jaundice: it can be caused by acute or chronic hepatitis, hepatotoxicity, cirrhosis, drug induced hepatitis and alcoholic liver disease.

Laboratory findings depend on the cause of jaundice, include:
Urine: conjugated bilirubin present, urobilirubin gt; 2 units but variable (except in children). Kernicterus is a condition not associated with increased conjugated bilirubin.
Plasma protein show characteristic changes.
Plasma albumin level is low but plasma globulins are raised due to an increased formation of antibodies.

Post-hepatic jaundice: it is also called obstructive jaundice, is caused by an interruption to the drainage of bile in the biliary system. The most common causes are gallstones in the common bile duct, and pancreatic cancer in the head of the pancreas. Also, a group of parasites known as" liver flukes" can live in the common bile duct, causing obstructive jaundice.

The presence of pale stools and dark urine suggests an obstructive or post-hepatic cause as normal feces get their color from bile pigments. However, although pale stools and dark urine is a feature of biliary obstruction, they can occur in many intra-hepatic illnesses and are therefore not a reliable clinical feature to distinguish obstruction from hepatic causes of jaundice. Patients also can present with elevated serum cholesterol, and often complain of severe itching or" pruritus" because of the deposition of bile salts.

Signs and tests:
No single test can differentiate between various classifications of jaundice. A combination of liver function tests is essential to arrive at a diagnosis.

Other tests vary, but may include:
Hepatitis virus panel to look for infection of the liver
Liver function tests to determine how well the liver is working
Complete blood count to check for low blood count or anemia
Abdominal ultrasound
Abdominal ct scan
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ercp)
Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiogram (ptca)
Liver biopsy
Cholesterol level
Prothrombin time


Ayurvedic approach:
In the ayurvedic perspectrive jaundice (kamala) is a complaint of the pitta region of the body, which denotes a build up of toxins in an intestinal area that is causing an in-balance in the overall dosha. You need to expel such toxins to rebalance the immune system and yourself. All the great indian laureates viz. Acharaya charaka, sushruta and vagbhatta have described the yakrita roga (liver diseases). Acharaya charaka has mentioned a detailed description of kamala roga in connection with liver disease. He has given details of nidan, samprapti, rupa, bheda, sadhyasadhayata and chikitsa karma. The concept of kamala in ayurveda kayam malyati iti kamala. i.e. The whole body becomes dirty because of accumulation of pitta in the body which refers to accumulation of bilirubin in this context. Kamala produces various signs and symptoms as haridra netra (yellow discoloration of conjunctiva), haridra twaka (yellow colour of skin), haridra nakha (yellow nails), bheka varna (frog like body color), daha (burning sensation), ajirna (indigestion), daurbalaya (weakness), kshudhanasha (anorexia) etc.

Management:
Since liver is the largest organ and main site of metabolism and detoxification, the diet should be easily digestible during this condition. So ayurvedic treatment contains such medicines which will facilitate removal of waste substances from the gut and kidney.

The treatment of kamala (jaundice) must start with purgation. The basic theory is that no burden be placed on the liver and for that, a daily purgative is recommended. A diuretic may also be administered to encourage the flow of urine, which will expel most of the bile from the system this helps to remove the toxins accumulated in the liver and the rest of the body. Strong purgatives are avoided. Oral medicines and rasayana treatments are also given to the patient. Strong purgatives are avoided.

Ayurvedic treatments for jaundice will aim to rectify the pitta imbalance and eliminate the toxins accumulated in the human system. Elimination of toxins is done through the panchakarma treatments that begin with an oil massage followed by mild emesis and purgation with bitter herbs.

Medicines used:
Regular intake of avipattikar churna about one- teaspoonful twice a day with hot water.
Arogyavardhani vati 2-2 tablets regularly with hot water twice a day.
Punarnava mandoor, 1 tab thice daily for 2 to 3 weeks.
Navrayas loh can also be given in the dose of 125mg thrice daily.
Daily consumption of triphala powder (10gm) soaked in water overnight. (equivalent to lactulose)
Regular intake of guduchi juice 10gm twice or thrice a day.
Daily intake of neem juice is also useful for jaundice
Rohitakyadi, punarnava, phalatrikyadi kwath, dhatri lauha etc. May also be used.

Some routine home remedies:
Mix 1 teaspoon of roasted barley powder to 1 cup of water. Add 1 teaspoon of honey to it and have this twice a day.
Add 1 teaspoon paste of basil leaves to a cup of radish juice. Have this juice twice a day for 15-20 days.
Have a cup of sugarcane juice with teaspoon of basil leaves paste twice a day. Juice should be prepared in hygienic conditions so as to avoid contamination from dust or other substances


Pathya-apathya (do's don'ts):
Avoid non-vegetarian foods at least till the effects of the jaundice last on the skin. Do not take even heavy vegetarian foods. The reason is that the liver needs to produce more bile to digest these heavy foodstuffs and this could alleviate the pigmentation of the skin.

Completely restrict your intake of junk food such as chocolate, cakes, pastries, potato chips, ice-creams, colas and other aerated drinks, etc.
Always drink water that is filtered or boiled. Do not drink raw milk.
Do not eat sea foods especially oysters, unless you are sure they have come from a reliable source.
Take simple food for the first three days of the jaundice affliction. Have a meal of porridge, especially rice gruel (kanji). You can flavor it with jaggery syrup or honey.
There must be a complete abstinence of salt as it is a mineral and requires a difficult digestion process.
Do not give cereals and pulses to the patient as they cause inflammation in the liver. Grapes, black soya beans, nuts, sweet potatoes are the fruits that are beneficial in jaundice.
Vegetable salad of tomato, carrot, radish and its leaves, and two-three slices of lemon are very good for health and very effective in curing jaundice in a natural way.
It is advised for the patient suffering with jaundice to take proper rest and drink fruit juices.
Bitter vegetables like bitter gourd and the bitter variety of drumsticks are beneficial to the jaundice patient.
Alcohol is very harmful to the jaundice patient. It can complicate the disease with fatal consequences. Hence say a strict no to alcohol.

Stress & Its Effects on Gastroenterology

Stress & Its Effects on Gastroenterology

A stressful event like speaking in public, going to a job interview can give you butterflies in your stomach that may literally make you want to run to the bathroom. Stress affects every aspect of our lives including digestion. This includes indigestion, heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome. When put in a stressful situation, the body releases hormones known as corticotropin-releasing hormone or CRH. This, in turn, signals the adrenal gland to pump out adrenaline and steroids that help with the body's flight or fight response. Here are a few ways stress affects the gastrointestinal system.Here are a few ways stress affects the gastrointestinal system.

  1. Stress kills appetite: Stress eating is a real problem that results from the contradictory reactions of hormones. The hormones released by stress kill a person's appetite, but at the same time, the steroids released by these hormones make the person crave unhealthy foods like ice-cream, chocolate or potato chips. These foods aren't easy to digest and can cause indigestion, gas buildup and heart burn.
  2. Stress leads to ulcers: Ulcers are caused by bacteria, but stress strengthens the infection and disturbs the balance of hydrochloric acid and protective secretions in the stomach. This increases the risk of ulcer formation in the stomach. Once the ulcers are present in the stomach, stress can worsen the symptoms.
  3. Stress alters the gastrointestinal pathophysiology: Stress can cause changes in gastrointestinal secretions and reduce the amount of oxygen available to the digestive system. It also impairs gastroduodenal motility and amount of enzymes being secreted by the pancreas. Additionally, it interferes with the passage of food through the intestinal tract and alters colonic motility. Stress also affects the absorption of nutrients from the stomach and increases the blood flow to the digestive system by four times the normal amount thus decreasing metabolism rates.
  4. Stress affects irritable bowel syndrome: Stress in itself does not cause irritable bowel syndrome but can worsen the situation. This is because stress can make the colon contract and cause abdominal pain. These contractions are usually uncoordinated and can lead to constipation. It also makes the body more sensitive to pain thus increasing discomfort.
  5. Stress lowers immunity: A large part of the immune system is housed in the gut. Stress reduces the secretion of enzymes in the gut and leaves the digestive system vulnerable to bacterial infections. By weakening the immune system in the gut, stress also increases the risk of suffering from infections in other parts of the body.
