I have headache from 15 days ago. When I bend over its badly paining back of my head.
Ginger can help reduce inflammation of the blood vessels in the head, thus providing relief from a headache. Mix equal parts of ginger juice and lemon juice. Consume it once or twice a day. Another option is to apply a paste of one teaspoon of dry ginger powder, also called sonth, and two tablespoons of water on the forehead for a few minutes.

Ayurveda For Slipped Disc

MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Jaipur
Ayurveda For Slipped Disc

Herniated disc, bulged disc, protruded intervertebral disc (PIVD) are the different names of one condition. This is a condition where- disc in between the two vertebral bodies starts peeping out on one side- anterior or posterior. These discs are just like the bags filled with liquid material, which work like shock-absorbent. There are several hard bony vertebrae in the vertebral column and there is plenty of movements with these vertebrae. When we look on one side to other side, we look upwards, downwards or we twist and even we bend forward or backward in each and every condition, there will be a movement in these bones, these discs decide the free movements of the spine. Along with this- when we walk or run there will be shocks and jerks to all these bones and these bags decide that there wont be any kind of jerks in between the bones. So, these discs are of multiple uses.

Our spine is inverted “S” shaped. There are two main curvatures in the spine which are free to move- Cervical and Lumbar curvatures. These curvatures of the spine are maintained due to the spaces in between the two vertebrae. Whenever there is a loss or change (specially reduction) of this space between two vertebrae- pressure will be exerted on the intervertebral discs. This uneven pressure on the disc causes- protrusion/bulge/herniation of the disc- this is the condition known as SLIPPED DISC, in layman language. Why does disc slip

Generally, slipped disc condition is diagnosed by its signs and symptoms. When slipped disc starts exerting pressure on the nerves surround the disc- the nerve will be excited which gives sensation of- Pain, Burning or Numbness in the related area of the nerve. This sensation can travel long far away to the areas, which are being supplied by the nerve and can be limited to a particular location in neck or back even. Sign & Symptoms of Slipped Disc.

Ayurveda about Slipped Disc

Where modern medical (Surgical) sciences believes that this is a problem of just bones and joints of the vertebral disc besides this Ayurveda takes a “Wholistic” (Complete and wholesome) approach towards this and tells that this is a problem at three levels-

  1. Mamsa Dhatu, Asthi Dhatu, Majja Dhatu!!
  2. These are different tissue levels according to Ayurveda- Mamsa is muscles, Asthi represents bones and the Majja denotes everything which is in between and in the bones.
  3. Mamsa (the muscles) starts stiffening due to the dryness – improper diet and imbalanced lifestyle and deteriorate the curvature of the spine- which leads to the deterioration of the intervertebral discs.
  4. Asthi (the bony tissue) is affected due to the muscles.
  5. Majja (the disc and the neural tissue- spine) is compressed due to the pressure and all effects.

So, we need to treat the condition, wisely and in a wholesome manner, rather just to removal of the protruded tissues (Laminotomy) and this is the basic reason- there are risks associated to the surgery of the spine and in almost more than 45% cases patients had to go for a second surgery to stay pain free. Why Surgery for spine doesn’t succeed. Secondly, this is a mechanical problem so medicines alone can give you temporary relief rather than the cure- So better you save your money and invest it on complete cure for the problem, rather than just taking the pain killers and medicines which were indicated in epilepsy to just reduce the signs and symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

How To Treat Cuts And Bruises With Homeopathy?

No matter how careful you are, cuts and bruises are something everyone has to deal with. While in most cases, these are not serious enough to require medical attention, sometimes, you may need to fasten the healing process. In such cases, it is a good idea to have a few homeopathic medicines at hand. Homeopathy is a holistic form of medication that addresses the body as a whole and is very effective at speeding up the healing process of cuts and bruises. Homeopathy has negligible side effects and hence can be taken by children and adults alike. Some homeopathic medicines to have at hand include the following:

  1. Arnica: Arnica is the ideal medicine to treat bruises and inflammation. Arnica can be taken internally in pill form or applied topically as a cream or gel. The potency of arnica pills depends on the severity of the injury. However, arnica should never be applied on skin that has been cut. Arnica can also be used to speed up recovery after a surgery or childbirth.

  2. Calendula and Hypericum: These two medicines are usually taken together to heal cuts and bruises. Calendula is applied topically and speeds up the healing process. When applying calendula, care should be taken to clean the site properly before applying the medicine. Calendula can also be used to treat nappy rash. Hypericum ensures that the wound heals completely and is very useful in cases where injuries have caused nerve damage or where fingers or toes have been bruised by being caught in a door. It is also often prescribed to speed up recovery after a surgical procedure.

  3. Ledum: Ledum is very useful in cases where the skin has been punctured as a result of an injury. It promotes the removal of pus in cases of acne and boils and prevents septicaemia from setting in. Ledum is commonly prescribed after animal bites or insect stings.

  4. Staphysagria: This homeopathic medicine is prescribed in cases of sensitive wounds, which involve tissue laceration. Staphysagria is also given in cases where the cornea is injured due to the presence of foreign bodies and after abdominal surgeries. Staphysagria can help speed up the healing process in case of clean cut wounds.

  5. Phytolacca: This homeopathic remedy is used to treat wounds that have a tendency to ulcerate and in cases of injuries associated with soreness and aching. Tissue muscle injuries that can lead to tetanus can also benefit from Phytolacca.

These are just basic indications and there are more than 150 Homeopathic medicines that can be right for you.

Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Rhus tox 200--once daily in the morning for 6 days.

Nowadays people of your age group are frequently complaining of back pain. Most common reason for this pain is vitamin B12 and D3 and calcium deficiency. You should get these tested. Supplements of these vitamins help to reduce the pain. Additionally hot bag and analgesic gels will help. Physiotherapy will be good for you. If the pain still persists you may need to visit an orthopaedic surgeon.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your current symptoms of back pain with off an on tingling sensation in feet region may not be linked to your earlier problem. If you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, weakness in legs etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if you do not improve in 2-3 weeks with this conservative management, we will need to evaluate you further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Please check your vitamin d level as well. Best wishes.

Exercise is the only way to re leave pressure over lower back. Exercise should include moderate walk and leg raising exercises by lying on back. Avoid bending forward and lifting heavy weight as it increases the pressure over back causing more problem. Consult privately for any other query.

I am 26 year old male having pain in my left knee from one month kindly suggest me any exercises.
Knee joint is very complex joint made by 3 bones - femur, tibia, fibula and knee cap - patella. Several ligaments, cartilage and menisci are covered all around. So pain in knee joint may be due to several reasons. In your case the pain may be due to some internal injury like cartilage etc for which you are not aware or may be due to deficiency of vitamins or uric acid. So in general I would advise you to please go for proper investigation so that the reason can be diagnosed. In the mean time to get relief from pain and stiffness please follow the physio measures: precautions- 1. Avoid prolong standing. Standing on one leg or running for time being if its painful. 2. Take care while bending your knees, it should not directly strain your joint. 3. Avoid heavy weight lifting. 4. Wear shoes with good arch support, do not wear high -healed shoes. 5. Use the correct positions during activities so that you do not strain your muscles. 6. Try to change your sitting position every 15 min so that it should not give strain on your knees. 7. Avoid sitting on floor with both knees bending. 8. Take diet rich in calcium like milk, dairy products, banana etc which will enhance your calcium and gives you strength. Treatment - 1. Use of cold or hot packs which ever suits you - apply ice or hot pack to the painful area and massage for near about 10 minutes. Make a habit for doing atleast twice a day initially. 2. After this using your thumb massage your knee area gently. Exercises include: 1. Quads isometrics. 2. Hamstrings isometrics. 3. Slr 4. Bridging do not do single leg bridging if pain is very severe. 5. Knee bending lying or supine position. 6. Heel raising 7. Step ups 8. Lunge 9. Squatting you can do the above treatment plan it will give you pain relief. But if you face severe pain while doing the exercises then stop doing and apple talcum over knee, with thumb massage your knee area slightly. For any question please inform or update me. Get well soon. Good luck.
