Muscle Dystrophy - How Ayurveda Can Help in Treating it?

Muscle Dystrophy - How Ayurveda Can Help in Treating it?

Muscular dystrophy is a rare disorder which results in the atrophy or degeneration of muscles. This happens as the proteins required by the body to build and maintain muscles are not produced within the body in a normal manner. Muscular dystrophy mostly affects boys and develops in early adolescence although it can affect people much younger or much later in life. Ayurveda has some great treatments which can allay the symptoms and provide relief to patients afflicted with this disease.

Treatment for Muscle dystrophy in Ayurveda
With a degenerative disease like Muscle dystrophy, simple medication won’t be able to cure or relieve symptoms. Even with conventional medicines muscle dystrophy can’t be cured, but the symptoms can be reduced. Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to correcting the problems which include oral medications, food as well as exercises in the form of yoga.

Herbs

Herbs are a great way to put certain minerals within the body, which can help lessen the pain and symptoms. Some of the herbs which have been known to be effective in reducing pain and also helping with movement and day to day activities may include:

  1. Triphala
  2. Mansrohini
  3. Nirgundi
  4. Guduchi
  5. Ashwagandha and many others

However, there are no medications in readymade proportions which are specifically designed and prescribed according to the diagnosis of the patient. It also needs to be complemented with a proper diet also known as Mamsagni Rasayana.

Diet or Mamsagni Rasayana

This is a very tailored diet and supplement approach to create and put the required nutrients which will slow down the decay of muscles within the body and will also help build new muscle to slow down decay. These will include extracts from herbs which will be made into chemicals and then used to make dietary supplements.

Yoga and specialized physiotherapy exercises

Yogic postures combined with certain walking and standing postures performed over time can also help reduce the symptoms and lessen the rate of decay. Some of the exercises that are helpful for various activities are:

  1. Standing and movements: Padahastasana, Tad asana, Trikonasana, Vakrasana
  2. Sitting: Paschimottanasa, Vakrasana, Shashankasana
  3. To help with breathing: Ardha Shalabhasana, Pranayama, Bhramri Pranayama

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

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. •Standing hamstring stretch: Place the heel of your injured leg on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your knee straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you do not roll your shoulders and bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Cat and camel: Get down on your hands and knees. Let your stomach sag, allowing your back to curve downward. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then arch your back and hold for 5 seconds. Do 3 sets of 10. •Quadruped arm/leg raise: Get down on your hands and knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles to stiffen your spine. While keeping your abdominals tight, raise one arm and the opposite leg away from you. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Lower your arm and leg slowly and alternate sides. Do this 10 times on each side. •Pelvic tilt: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, then relax. Do 3 sets of 10. •Partial curl: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your stomach muscles. Tuck your chin to your chest. With your hands stretched out in front of you, curl your upper body forward until your shoulders clear the floor. Hold this position for 3 seconds. Don't hold your breath. It helps to breathe out as you lift your shoulders up. Relax. Repeat 10 times. Build to 3 sets of 10. To challenge yourself, clasp your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the side. •Gluteal stretch: Lying on your back with both knees bent, rest the ankle of one leg over the knee of your other leg. Grasp the thigh of the bottom leg and pull that knee toward your chest. You will feel a stretch along the buttocks and possibly along the outside of your hip on the top leg. Hold this for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Extension exercise: Lie face down on the floor for 5 minutes. If this hurts too much, lie face down with a pillow under your stomach. This should relieve your leg or back pain. When you can lie on your stomach for 5 minutes without a pillow, then you can continue with the rest of this exercise.

Know How To Manage Your Osteoporosis (Bone Loss) Naturally!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Know How To Manage Your Osteoporosis (Bone Loss) Naturally!

Osteoporosis (meaning porous bones) refers to a medical condition in which the bones of an individual become thin and weak. The previous stage is called osteopenia (a precursor to osteoporosis). The bones become fragile and therefore start losing its strength. The medical researchers have reported that women are more prone to getting osteoporosis as compared to that of men, but that does not mean that men are completely immune to this disease. Where there are almost 50% women suffer from osteoporosis by the age of 60, there are about 30% of men who face the problem of osteoporosis.

Well, it has always been said that sooner you start taking care of your health especially bones, the better it is. Osteoporosis is a very common medical condition nowadays and major factors that are responsible for the increased prevalence of this disease is the lifestyle changes which include the living patterns and the diet changes.

What Causes Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis happens when there is an imbalance between new bone formation and old bone resorption. The body may fail to produce enough new bone, or too much old bone may be reabsorbed, or both. If calcium intake is not sufficient or if the body does not absorb enough calcium from the diet, bone production and bone tissue may suffer. Thus, the bones may become porous, resulting in spongy and brittle, prone to fractures.

Other conditions that may lead to osteoporosis include overuse of corticosteroids (Cushing syndrome), thyroid problems, lack of muscle use, bone cancer, certain genetic disorders, use of certain medications, and dietary deficiency of calcium.

Risk factors for osteoporosis:

  • Women above 60 years of age.

  • Early menopause natural or surgical.

  • Poor diet & lifestyle  i.e. Cigarette smoking, eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia, low amounts of calcium in the diet, heavy alcohol consumption, inactive lifestyle.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis itself is a risk factor for osteoporosis

  • Family History of osteoporosis.

  • Overuse of corticosteroids

  • Hypothyroidism

  • Chronic Emotional stress

Foods That Cause Osteoporosis

  • Alcohol – Increases inflammation that can lead to more calcium being leached from bones.

  • Sweetened / Aerated drinks beverages – The sugary drinks like canned juices and aerated drinks like cola are the most dreadful drinks for your health especially bones, as these drinks extract the calcium from the bones. Carbonated drinks contain a lot of phosphates which is responsible for leaching of calcium from bones. It has been proven in a Harvard Study that the women just 16-20 years young had already started loss of bones as they were consuming a lot of carbonated drinks. Sugar is also responsible for inflammations.

  • Processed, red meat – A high intake of sodium and red meat may result in bone loss.

  • Caffeine/Tea – Excessive caffeine intake can result in bone loss as it causes hindrance in iron and calcium absorption from food.

Natural Treatments for Osteoporosis:

1. Osteoporosis Diet

To help you get all the vitamins and minerals you need to build and maintain strong bones, it’s important to eat a varied diet with adequate calories to fuel all your body’s processes. Mainly calcium and vitamin D are important. Other Nutrients needed to prevent bone disorders include iron, vitamin C and magnesium. Iron deficiency (anaemia) is a risk factor for osteopenia and osteoporosis because iron is essential for collagen synthesis and vitamin D metabolism. Vitamin C plays a role in collagen formation. It also helps stimulate the cells that build bones, enhances calcium absorption, and helps vitamin D to work properly.

Foods that provide Calcium include: dairy products like yogurt, milk or paneer. salmon or sardines; dark leafy green vegetables; and other veggies like broccoli, Makhanas (puffed lotus seeds), sesame seeds, calcium.

Magnesium rich foods include: leafy greens like spinach, pumpkin seeds, yogurt, black beans, figs, banana, cranberries, sunflower seeds, dark chocolates and Almonds & Avocados.

Sources of vitamin C include: citrus fruits, papaya or guava, berries, peppers, kiwi, broccoli and Amla(Indian gooseberry), star fruit, phalsa ,tomato.

Collagen protein: collagen is one component of bone that helps to build its framework and provide a flexible structure that can withstand pressure. Collagen is found naturally in things like bone broth or can be taken in protein powder form or supplement form.

Foods that supply Iron (which can help to prevent anaemia) include: chicken, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, spinach, kala chana , garden cress seeds, dates and raisins etc.

Alkaline diet that helps protect bones. This means eating lots of veggies, fruit, sea vegetables and plant foods. Wheat grass is highly alkaline food.

It’s also best to lower the amount of sodium in your diet by eating more unprocessed/whole foods. It also helps to avoid things like: processed meats, fast foods, fried foods, canned goods, salty condiments or sauces, frozen meals, ready to eat meals etc. In addition, try to limit your intake of sugary products, sweetened drinks, alcohol and caffeine.

2. Practice Exercises:

To help maintain skeletal strength, it’s important to stay active. Osteoporosis has greater risk of fractures, so be careful while Exercising. Avoid strenuous and jerky movements. Exercise helps your body reduce the decline in bone mass associated with aging. It has many others benefits, too, such as contributing to hormone balance and a healthy body weight. Exercise is needed to keep muscles strong. It also helps with coordination and balance.

Weight-bearing exercises are the most beneficial for your bones, although this term often confuses people. Weight-bearing exercises include any type that “forces you to work against gravity” and that you practice with an upright posture. This way your bones and muscles must support your body weight.

To prevent and cure osteoporosis, yoga and Pranayama will be a great addition in your lifestyle. It will fix up your hormonal balance which is the root cause of problem. Oxygenation by breathing techniques will make your body alkaline and will help you in reducing bone sponginess. Cool, Calm and Clean environment and yoga practice – a wows combination for your health.

3. Take Supplements That Can Help Protect Bones

  • Calcium: It’s best to obtain calcium from foods in your diet. However, you can take a supplement for boost. Most adults need about 1,000 milligrams daily. Choose calcium citrate, take it before meals for better absorption in a divided dose of 500mg everyday.
  • Vitamin D: Experts recommend that people who have a history of deficiency, elderly adults,take a vitamin D supplement daily. Dosage recommendations vary person to person.
  • Magnesium: Magnesium is a mineral; your body requires for proper calcium metabolism. Aim to get between 300–500 milligrams daily. Epsom salt bath is super source to get it through skin.

Ayurveda perspective of osteoporosis is, when vata (air) element is vitiated in our body and affects our bones is called Asthi Majja Kashaya. Traditionally used medicines for Asthi-majja kashaya (osteoporosis):Asthi shrinkhala ghrita, Shatavari, Ashwagandha churna, Shuddha guggulu, Mukta pisti, Praval pisti, Shankhabhama. Oil enemas (basti) particularly work on Asthi Dhatu (bones) and Majja Dhatu (bone marrow) along with Abhyangam therapy.

4. Maintain A Healthy Weight: Obesity can increase inflammation and contribute to hormonal changes that damage bones. Maintaining a healthy weight makes it easier to exercise and stay active into older age.

5. Get Enough Sunlight: Vitamin D helps improve calcium absorption. It’s best to obtain it via natural sunlight. To allow your body to make enough vitamin D to protect your bones, aim to get 15–20 minutes of sunshine on your bare skin daily.

6 Get Enough sleep: A sound sleep of at least 7-8 hours per day helps in better assimilation and absorption of nutrients. Lack of sleep may lead to adrenal fatigue and associated symptoms.

Final Thoughts on Osteoporosis:

Osteopenia is a condition characterized by lower-than-normal bone density. It precedes osteoporosis and causes brittle, weaker than normal bones that are more likely to fracture on minor jerk.

Risk factors for osteopenia include: being a woman following menopause; dieting or calorie restriction; eating disorders; taking medications that interfere with mineral absorption; anaemia; smoking cigarettes; too little exercise; obesity and a family history.

Natural treatments and prevention include: balanced diet with enough calcium and vitamin D; getting regular & safe exercise; maintaining a healthy weight; not smoking; and preventing vitamin D deficiency by getting adequate sunlight exposure and sound sleep, maintaining alkalinity in body. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 30 year old some parts of my lips are rose colour found how it removed also I have some backache problem.
Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -Apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --While sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -Do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -Avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -Stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -Some Physiotherapy treatment like IFT can give you some relief . -A physical therapist can do detail assessment what causing you pain and tell you when to begin stretching and strengthening exercises and how to do them.

A ligament tear can not heal without surgery. Acl tear is normally seen in people who play sports. So if you want to continue playing then you have no option but to go for a surgery. But, if you are not going to indulge in too many physical activities then you can avoid surgery and go for physiotherapy - ayurvedic physiotherapy can manage your pain very well. Consult a nearby clinic and go for janu vasti sessions. This will not heal the tear but it will make you pain free.
