Namaskar! Main Dr. Pradnya Aptikar hun. Main Thane mein 18 saal se practice kar rahi hun. I am practicing as a Ayurvedic Gynaecologist. Jisme mein main infertility ke patients treat karti hun.

Aaj hum is video mein baat karenge, infertility ka or ek issue abhi zyaada dikhayi deta hai. Jaise ki anti-mullerian hormone jo hota hai vo bahut patients mein , abhi 24-25 ki umar mein hi kam dikhayi deta hai. Iska jo normal range hota hai, vo above 1 hona chaiye ya 2 k above hona chaiye. 2 to 6 is the normal range. Lekin bahut se patients mein , it is less than 0.3 or 0.01. To ye humein bata deta hai ki stree ke sharir me ande kitne abhi tak hai.

Agar ye low bata deta hai, to uska matlab uske khud ke ande jo hain, vo kam hote ja rahen hain or khud ke ando se vo conceive nhi ho payegi. Bachha nhi ho payega. To kabhi kabhi aise cases mein modern technology ke doctor se ya fir modern technology agar hum jaante hain, test tube baby kraana chahte hain, to usme humein donor egg lena padta hai ki jisme jis stree ke ande ache hain, us stree ke ande leke vo test-tube baby karana pdta hai.

Agar hum ande ki quality badahna chahte hain , to hum ayurveda se ye kar sakte hain. To ye treatment ke liye main , mere clinic mein ayurvedic dawaiyan peat me dete hain or panchakarma chikitsa jisme shirodhara ho ya fir vaman, virechan, aise jo panchakarma ke detoxification processes hain or iske sath sath counseling hai, diets hai or lifestyle jo hai, suko modify krne ke hum kuch upay btate hain. To ye ab agar aap chizen krte hain to ande ki quality hum badha skte hain. Agar aap conceive nhi kar paa rhe ho ya agar aapko iske bare me or jankari chaiye ya fir mujhse milna chahte hain, mujhse appointment lena chahte hain to you can contact me through lybrate.com. Thank You.

Namaskar! Mai Dr. Pradnya Aptikar hoon. Thana mei practice kar rahi hoon kai saalon se. Meri jo practice hai, usmein main infertility ke patients treat karti hoon.

Aaj is video mein hum baat karenge infertility ki hi. Ismein kai patients ki report to normal aati hai, phir bhi vo conceive nahi kar paate hain. Ya phir jo test tube baby ke liye bhi jaate hai, jisko Artificial Reproductive Technology kahte hain- IUI ho ya test tube baby ho, embryos taiyaar hone ke bavjood bhi wo implant nahi ho paate. Toh yeh cheez ke bare mei mai aaj batane ja rahi hoon.

Isme bahut baar aisa hota hai ke jo endometrium lining hota hai , vo bahut thin hota hai. Jaise ki jo normal endometrium ki thickness hoti hai , voh 7 ya 8 mm ke uper hone chiye. Lekin koi koi patients mein pehle se hi kabhi kabhi hormones ke ulta palat ho ya kabhi kam zyaada ho , uske vajah se ya phir TB ki shikayat ho, kise ko pait ka TB ho sakta hai uske vajha se ya phir koi dietary inadequacy ho ya phir koi lifestyle disorder ho uski vajha se. Kabhi kabhi baar baar bachedani saaf karne se jise diancie bolte hain, frequent diancie karte hain uske vahja se endometrium thickness jo hai , voh kam ho jata hai. Voh kabhi kabhi 5 ya 6 aisa hota hai. Toh usmain bacha rehne k receptors hote hain voh kam ho jate hain.

Kabhi kabi uske ander jo blood suply hota hai vo kam ho jata hai, toh uske vajha se bache conceive nahi ho pate hain. Implantation vo jo embryos transfer karte hain test tube baby mein , voh bhi kabhi kabhi implant nahi ho paate hain ya kabhi kabhi implant ho bhi jate hain toh voh missed abortion ya phir jaldi hi pahle ya doosre mahine mein abort hoke gir jaate hain. Toh aise mein hamara ayurved kaise kam karta hai? Ismain ayurved mein hum dietery habits badalte hain, lifestyle changes krne ke liye hum aapko salah dete hain aur kuch uttarpasi jaise treatment hain Panchakarma aur pait main bhi dava dete hain.

Toh isse hame kaafi faayda hota hai or bachha jaldi reh sakta hai. Lekin iske liye aur bhi kuch cheezein hamein karni padti hain , jiske liye aapko mere se appointment leni padegi. For more information you can contact me through Lybrate.com aur agar appointment bhi book karni hai toh Lybrate.com se book kar sakte hain. Thank you so much!

Namaskar, mai Dr Pradnya Apitkar Thane mein practise kr rahi hun as a Ayurvedic Gynaecologist. Pichale bees saalon se practise kr rahi hun. Aaj hum iss video mein thodi baat-cheet karenge, PCOD ke patient mein jo cosmetic problem aate hain uske bare mein. Jaise bahut si ladkiyan aati hain hai fall, jaise baal girna aur pimples ki shikayat leke. Muh ke upar acne yani pimples bahut baat jo pitikayen rehti hain choti-choti wo bahut si aa jati hain. Toh bahut baar ye cosmetic problem karke uske baare mein, chikitsa ya fir treatment kaise kiya jata hai uske bare mein pucha jata hai. Lekin agar hum detail history lete hai toh bahut si ladkiyon ke periods irregular rehte hain ya fir bahut si ladkiyon ke periods regular hone ke bawajood agar menstrual flow jo rehta hai, bleeding agar kam ho, scanty menses ho, ya kabhi-kabhi jayada bhi ho jaise menorrhagia jaisi conditions rehti hai jisme period ke dwara jayada rakt sarah hota hai. Toh ye jo shikayatey hain, wo directly relate kerti hain cosmetic problems mein. Jaise ki PCOD mein ovulation yani ki anda job anta hai woh bahut deri se banta hai, ya kabhi-kabhi banta bhi nahi hai. Toh uski wajah se strivishisht hormones jo hain wok am hote hain aur jo purush vishisht hormones hain jisme testosterone jaise hormones rehte hain, wo shareer mein uski matra bad jati hai aur uski wajah se facial hairs jisse hirsutism bolte hain, jaise daadi ya much jaise baal aane lagte hain aur jo sar ke baal hote hain jo ki zaruri hai usme wo hair fall ke jaise symptoms dikhayee dete hain. Usme jaise hum bolte hain ki testosterone induced aur dependent alopecia, usme baal gir jate hain. Aur uske alwa muh ke upar, gaalo ke upar baal aana, ya fir phunsia jaise acne jise bolte hain, pimples jise bolte hain wo aana shuru ho jate hai. Usme kai baar pus formation hota hai, kai baar dard jayada hota hai aur uski uttpatti jayada der hone ke bawajood usme scars taiyar ho jate hain, jaise chehre ke upar daag taiyar ho jate hain. Toh iske upar ayurved mein bahut achche se ilaj hai, isme jaise face pack bhi hai, head massage bhi hai aur uske alawa jo underline jo uska root cause hai, jaise hormonal imbalance hai, testosterone ki matra badu hui hai usko balance karne ke liye hum pait mein kuch dawaiyan dete hain. Panchkarma ka bhi isme istemal kiya jata hai, jaise ki virechana ho, vasti treatment ho ye sab cheeze hamare yahan ki jati hai ki jisme hum iske upar puri taranh se milke root cause ke tahat hum ja sakte hain.

Abhi aj hum is karekaram main bat krn gy lifestyle disorders k bary main. Jaiys k ap ko sb ko pta hai k abi agly 20 saal main zyada beemariyan barh rai hain. Jis main hain diabetes or thyroid or PCOD. Ye teeno chezain hamein bar bar dekhai deti hn. Or jo patients aty hain un main bhi yahi chezain dekhai deti hain. To is ka karan kya hai? To agr hum dekhain to these are lifestyle disorders. Hamary jo khany peeny ka, rehn sehan ka timing badal gya hai. Stress bhi zyada barh gya hai to us ki waja sy ye sb teeno bemariyan ek sath dekhai deti hain ya phr alag alag dekhai deti hain. Jaisy k agr udharan k tor py hm dekhain to 14 15 saal ki larkiyon ko bhi abhi ye sb dekhai deny laga hai k hypothyroidism, jis main thyroid ka jo secretion hai wok am hoty jata hai or phr wazan barhna, or periods irregular hona, balon ka girna or facial hairs barhna . ye sb dekhai deta hai. To in k sath sath kbi kbi hamein agr hum dekhain to insulin resistance bhi dekhai deta hai. Which is a pre-diabetic condition. In main kya hota hai k blood main, khoon main, insolin ki matra barh jati hai. Or us ki waja sy blood sugar ki matra jo hai wok am ho jati hai. Bar bar bhukh lgti hai. Is lye wo larkiya ya aurat jo bhi hai wo bar bar khana mangti hai. Khati rehti hai. Is ki waja sy wazan barht hai. Or itna khana khany k ba wajud, wazan hony k ba wajud bhi us ko bht thakan mehsus hoti hai. She cannot work in the evening also. To ye jo bat hai this is typically insulin resistance PCOD main dekhai deti hai. To wazan barhna, thakan mehsus hona, periods irregular hona, pasina bht ana ya phr nahi ana. Garden k nechy kali dararein parna, aisi sb chezain jo hain is ko bolty hn insulin resistance. To ye jo condion hai wo per-diabetic hoti hai. Agr is main hum sahe mainy sy treatment na dain yaw o agr hamary pas nahi aty hain to hm khud ka lifestyle modify kr k sudharty nahi hain. To ye jo hai wo pre-diabetes sy diabetes main badal jata hai. Jitna jaldi ho agr hum is main kam krn to hum is main reversible condition main a skty hain. To is main Ayurveda kya krta hai. To is main ayurved bht achy tareky sy kam krta hai. Is main hum panchakarma krty hain. Jis main k vaman verchan jaisy k jaisy detoxification process ho ya phr basti ho or diet or exercise k bary main bhi hum jankari dety hain. Or patient ko follow krny k lye bolty hain. Or ayurvedek ki bht sari jo dawaiyan hain. Jis ka hum is main istemal krty hain. To thyroid ho ya diabetes ho, pre diabetic condition ya phr periods irregular hn. PCOD ho jis main polisisting ovary diseases jaisy badain hon jis main period irregular ho k kbhi kbhi scanty menses jaisy k jism jis main khoon ek dam kam ya phir menorrhoea jis main khoon bht jata ho k 2 3 mahiny period nahi aty or us k bd 2 3 mahiny tk period ata hai or rukta e nai h. is main allopathy ki kitni bhi dawaiyan lain kam nahi krti hain. Is main hamara ayurved achy tareky sy kam karta hai. Or idher any k bad bhi aisa nai hai k hum 2 3 din dawai lein or hamein ek dam sy result mil jaye. Because it is scientific science. Science k mpor py hm jo kam krty hain to scientific jo rule hain us k mutabik hum dawaiyan istemal krty hain or kam sy kam aisy pateints maun ek saal tk treatment lena zaruri hota hai. Jis main punchkarma ho. Diet ho. Exercise ho. Or yoga behz bhi ho. Or is k sath sath kch dawaiyan bhi hon.

Or is k ilawa age apko kch zyada jan kari chahye to, for more information you can contact me through Lybrate.com. Thank you.

Hello, everybody. I am DR Pradnya Aptikar. I am practising gynaecology in Thane from last 17 year...

Hello, everybody. I am DR Pradnya Aptikar. I am practising gynaecology in Thane from last 17 years. I am treating females having Gynaecological and obstetrical problems. Aaj is video me hum baat karenge Vaginal infections ke baare me jo ki bohot common hai females me. 14 years ki ladkiyo se lekar 70 years ki ladies me bhi hume dikhai deta hai.

Iske bohot types hai, jese ki;

Ek hota hai safed paani jesa jiska appearance thick, white hota hai, kisika yellow hota hai, kisika brownish, kisika greenish ya fir kisika paani jesa bhi hota hai. Iski wajah se bohot sare symptoms hote hai, jese ki lower abdomen me pain hona, lower back pain, vaginal itching. In symptoms ki wajah se females ki day to day life bohot he difficult hojati hai. Bohot problems hoti hai

Baar-baar in infections ke hone ki wajah se kuch females me infertility dikhai deti hai. So, this is a very common factor.

Iske liye hum jaankaari lete hai ki ise ayurveda se kese treat kiya jaae? Aur ye kyu hota hai?

Reproductive age groups me vaginal infections normally nahi hona chaie. Vagina ka jo pH rehta hai, that is acidic pH. So, normally we have all the resisting power against all the infections. But koi cheezein aisi hoti hai, jese ki unhygienic conditions, ya fir menstrual period me proper hygiene nahi rakhne se, ya fir during delivery period, ya fir delivery ke baad ke 3-4 months ke time duration me  proper hygiene na ho, ya fir apki immunity power kam ho. Aisi cases me infections ho sakte hai, ya fir apko frequent urinary track infections ho sakte hai. Iske lie Ayurvedic treatment, jise hum kehte hai Yonidhavan.

Iske liye hum herbal medicines are decoction karte hai, uska kadah bana ke hum baginal track wash kardete hai. Ye sitting me kiya jata hai, iske liye 7-15 sittings lagte hai. Aur kabhi kabhi cervix, uterus ka mhu pe swelling hoti hai, jese chronic erosion rehti hai, jiski wajah se white discharge ki complaint bar bar rehti hai.

Iske liye hum Pap smear test karte hai jisse ki hume inflammation, infection, cancer etc rule out kiye ja sakte hai. Ise test karne ke baad he hum vaginal treatment dete hai. Isme 7-15 sittings hote hai. Ise hum Ayurvedic herbs ke zariye theek karte hai jisse ki ye poora theek hojata hai. Humare treatment se yeh infection bar-bar nahi hota hai aur apki immunity badhane ke liye hum apko oral herbal medicines bhi dete hai.

Iske ilawa apko koi jankaari chaie ho to aap mujhe lybrate.com ke through contact kar sakte hai.

Thank you.

Hello, everybody. I am Dr Pradnya Aptikar, practising as an Ayurvedic Gynaecologist in Thane from...

Hello, everybody. I am Dr Pradnya Aptikar, practising as an Ayurvedic Gynaecologist in Thane from last 17 years. I am an Infertility specialist. Is video me hum baat karenge Common cause of Infertility ke baare me which is Tubal block.

Isme fallopian tube block hone ki wajah se natural conception nahi ho pata hai, to patient ko Infertility ki problem face karni padti hai. To hum thoda samah lete hai ki ye Tubal block kya hai aur Ayurved isme kya kar sakta hai?

To jese ki aap yahan pe dekh rahe hai ki ye uterus hai, or ye fallopian tubes hai and ovaries. Periods ke 14th-16th day pe alternate ovaries se ek ek egg nikalta hai. Aur vagina se sperms ooper chale aate hai. Aur sperms agar acche hai to ye chale aate hai fallopian tube me aur ye egg ko fodd dete hai, jise hum kehte hai Fertilization. To ye fertilization tube main hota hai. To agar in tubes me swelling ho, ya tuebs blocked ho, paani udhar jama hua ho, to yeh tubes kaam nahi karti hai aur idhar fertilization ki process ho nahi paati hai. Iski wajah se fir Infertility ka saamna patient ko kara padta hai.

To abhi hum ye jante hai ki ye causes bohot tarah se hote hai. Lekin jo commonest cause hota hai, wo bohot baar pet ka TB hone ki wajah se hume tubal blocks dikhai dete hai. TB hone ke ilawa bhi jo other factors hai, jese ki infection, koi swelling, to isme Endriometrosis bhi rehta hai, jiski wajah se chipka chipki hojati hai, adagens hojate hai aur tubal blocks hojate hai. To ye tubal blocks ki wajah se conception nahi ho pata hai.

Ayurved iske baare me kya kehta hai?

Ayurveda me hum 2-3 tarah ki chikitsa karte hai. Mere clinic me ek jo chikitsa rehti hai tubal block door karne k lie, hum Uttara Basti naam ki ek chikitsa karte hai. Jese ki vagina ke raste hum kuch dawaiya ander daal dete hai, jese ki Uterine cavity ke ander hum daal dete hai. Ye process hum safety process ke under karte hai. Ye dawai ander tubes me chali aati hai aur hum tubes ko clean kar dete hai. Ye jo chikitsa rehti hai, wo hum periods khatam hone ke 10 din ke ander karte hai 3-5 din tak. Case to case ye differ karta hai ki 3 din ho ya 5 din ho. Hum jo ander dawai daalte hai use Uttara basti kehte hai. Isse tubal blocks door hote hai, aur agar tube me koi soojan ho ya fir koi adagens ho to wo kam hojate hai.

Lekin agar TB zada faila hua hai, agar grade 4 ka TB hai, to tube khulne ke baad bhi hume chances nahi milte hai. Iske baad test tube baby ka he hume istemaal karna padta hai. Lekin Uttara basti ka upyog hoga ya nahi hoga, ye hum case dekhne ke baad he bata sakte hai.

Uttara basti ka ek faeda bhi hota hai ki jo uterine cavity ki endiometry lining ko badhane ke liye hum kar sakte hai. Agar kisika tubal blockage khul nahi raha ho ya hume test tube baby ke liye jana pad raha ho, to test tube baby ke liye endometrial line accha hona chaie aur uski quality bhi acchi honi chaie. Iske liye hum Uttara basti ka upyog kar sakte hai. aur iske liye hum pet se bhi kuch dawaiya dete hai.

For more information, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you.

Namaskar, main Dr Pradnya Aptikar hoon. Thane mein main 16-17 years se practice kar rahi hoon as an ayurvedic gynaecologist. Ayurvedic gynaecology may be a new concept for you all. So ayurvedic gynaecology kis tarike se kaam karta hain? Jo classical Ayurved ki jaankari rakhte hain, aur modern science ki bhi jaankari hain, under one roof, I am working as an ayurvedic gynaecologist. Jis disease main Ayurved acchi tarike se kaam karta hain, usme ayurvedic medicines ki tarike se hum kaam karte hain. Aur jis diseases mein humein modern technology ki zarurat padhti hain diagnosis ke liye, jaise ki infertility ki baat hum lete hain, jisme hume X-ray, yap hire laparoscopy, hysteroscopy or surgery ki zarurat padti hai. In sab cheezon ko dhyan humein rakhte huye hume kaam karna padhta hain. Toh ayurvedic gynaecology hone ke bawajood, main baaki medicines or ayurvedic medicines ki bhi jaankari rakhti hoon. Jaise ki diabetes hai, thyroid disorders hai, endocrinological disorders hai, us me hum kaam karte hain. Aur yeh sab kaam ayurvedic medicines ke zariye kiya jaata hain. Ayurved jo hain, who alag tarike se kaam karta hain.

Aj hum infertility ke baare mein pehle baat karenge. Jaise ki by definition infertility ka matlab hain ki patient, ya couple agar ek saal se conceive nahi kar paa raha hain, phir toh hum unhein infertile bolte hain. Jaise ki the couple is trying for a baby for one year with unprotected sex, still they are not getting success, then the couple is defined as an infertile couple. Toh uske liye hum kaam karte hain. Toh agar apko dekha jay, toh isko hum anatomy apko mein batati hoon.

Isme yeh aap dekhte sakte hain ki yeh body of the uterus hain, yeh ovaries hain, and fallopian tubes hain. Toh isme agar PCOD jaise conditions hain, jaise ki ovaries mein agar anda taiyar nahin ho raha hain, har mahine mein  period aate hain, to periods start hone k 14th or 16th day ek ek anda right ya left ovaries se nikalta hain. Lekin agar ye nahi nikalta hain, ya phir immature nikalta hain, ya phir ovarian cyst taiyar ho jata hain, wo anda puri tarike se bahar nahi nikalta. Toh, yeh anda poori tarike se nikalne ke baad, yeh naliye usme kaam karte hain. Naliya usko jaise kheech leti hain. Then agar sperms acchi quality ke hain, toh ye upar swim karke aate hain, and yeh. Accha sperm is helpful in  fertilizing the ovum, and the embryo is formed in the fallopian tube, and that get implanted in the uterine cavity.

Aisi tarike se fertilization hoke, implantation hoke, pregnancy hoti hain. Lekin ye kisi bhi factor mein agar problem hai, toh infertility hoti hain. Jaise ki maine kaha ki ovarian cyst hain, PCOS hain, endometriosis hain, ya phir tubal blockage hain, toh phir humein success nahin milta hain, or humein infertility ka samna karna padhta hain. Toh is tarike mein, is mamle mein, ayurved kaise help karta hain?

Toh is mamle mein humein purification process rehti hain panchakarma se. Anda normal ya mature anda taiyyar hone mein hum kaam karte hain. Aur male partners mein agar sperm ki quality achchi nahi hain toh usme bhi hum panchakarma processes kar ke, hum sperm ki quality acChi tarike se badhate hain. Aur jis jis mein tubal blockages hain ya phir endometriosis hain, use bhi hum gynaceological panchakarma rehte hain. Jaise jise hum _____ bolte hain, aur uterus ki peeling process karke hum us mein kaam karte hain. Is me tubal blockages bhi nikal aatein hain, aur implantation ki chances badh jaate hain. Endometrium ki quality hum badhatein hain. IUI aur IVF jaise jo artificial reproductive techniques hain, isme bhi yeh karne se pehle agar hum panchakarma aur ye agar process karte hain, toh humein achchi tarike se results milte hain.

And further information ke liye, you can contact me via Lybrate.com. Thank you.

Low Back Pain - Know Ayurvedic Techniques For It!

Low Back Pain - Know Ayurvedic Techniques For It!

Ayurveda is an ancient healing technique that is very effective for today's lifestyle ailments. For many people a low back ache can be quite a pain. While strong pills and capsules may give you temporary relief they do not address the core issue and have a number of side effects. Ayurveda on the other hand, addresses the trigger to the back ache and has no side effects. Intrigued; take a look at these ayurvedic techniques to cure low back pain.

Cut out on spices

We may think it unrelated, but low back pain is often accompanied by indigestion. Spinal cord nerves connect to back muscles and digestive organs. Hence, a small change in your diet can have a great impact on your health. Spicy food aggravates the digestive system and has a drying effect on the body. By cutting back on spices and oil, the digestive system can work better and there will be less stress on the nerves connecting the spinal cord and back muscles and thus lesser back aches.

Warm your body

According to ayurveda, back pains are caused by an increase in vata dosha or the amount of air and ether elements in the body. Warming the body can help lower these levels. Apply a heat pack to the back as a way of keeping the external body surface warm. Additionally, add warm food to your diet. This opens out any blockages in your digestive system and in turn reduces low back pain.

Padahastasana

Ayurveda is very closely linked to yoga. Padahastasana is a yoga asana which addresses lower back pain by opening up the digestive channels and allowing the vata dosha to flow easily through the body. To practice this asana stand with your legs together and lift your arms straight above your head while inhaling. As you exhale, bend forward from the hips while keeping your back and legs straight. Try and touch your toes. Hold the position for as long as possible and come back to the starting position while inhaling.

Anuloma Viloma

Anuloma Viloma is a breathing exercise that balances the vata dosha. This is a technique that involves breathing from alternate nostrils. To begin, close the right nostril with your thumb and inhale through the left nostril. Close both nostrils and hold your breath for a few seconds. Then, release through the left nostril. Repeat this process, starting from the left nostril.

Bishop's weed seed tea

Tea made from the seeds of Bishop's weed is can provide instant pain relief from low back pains. This is suitable for men and women of all ages except those with heart problems.

The core principle of ayurveda is to listen to your body's messages. These techniques will help you become more tuned to your body's needs and keep you free from back aches.

Hair Loss - How Ayurveda Can Help?

Hair Loss - How Ayurveda Can Help?

Hair fall has a direct impact on the way you feel about yourself, your self esteem and confidence. It is also true that it is a very common problem and can be controlled and stopped completely through proper treatment. Ayurvedic treatment for hair fall has long term effects and it brings out the best results since the issues get rectified from the inside, preventing them from coming back.

Ayurveda and Hair Loss

 According to Ayurveda, hair fall is associated with body type that varies from person to person and also the stability of mind-body structure. Hair is considered a byproduct of bone formation, as stated by Ayurveda. The tissues which are responsible for the development of bones are also responsible for hair growth. Diet, yoga, meditation and medicated herbal oil massage are the Ayurvedic treatments generally recommended for hair loss.
 
Here are some ways through which Ayurveda addresses the problem of hair fall:
 
1.    Dietary modifications 

It is important to identify the lifestyle habits that cause hair fall problems. Consumption of alcohol, meat, coffee, tea and smoking are some of these habits. Hair fall can also be aggravated due to intake of too much greasy, spicy, oily, sour, fried and acidic foods.
 
Here are some ways suggested by Ayurveda to beat hair fall:
 
1.    Hair growth can be stimulated by drinking fresh juices of Pomegranate, carrot, spinach and Kokam.

2.     Sesame seeds promote hair growth as they are rich in magnesium and calcium.

3.     Cow's Ghee is a trusted remedy to resolve all scalp-related problems.

4.     Green vegetables and fruits are rich in fiber and hence help in preventing hair fall.

5.     To make the roots of hair strong, foods rich in vitamin C, vitamin B-complex, sulphur and zinc must be consumed, which are found in whole grains, soybeans, buttermilk, nuts and milk.

6.     Yoga and meditation: Inverted asanas help in stimulating the blood flow to the head. Additionally, practicing deep breathing exercises to control anxiety, stress and keep the mind balanced is also advisable.

7.     Ayurvedic herbs and medicated oil: Bhringaraaja, Brahmi, Amla, Neem, Ritha and Ashwagandha are some ayurvedic herbs rich in essential nutrients that help in reducing stress and promoting hair growth. Different types of oils including coconut oil, brahmi oil, amla oil or mustard oil are useful to control hair fall.

1. Development of uterine fibroids that are painful and accompanied by bleeding and other associated symptoms
2. Uterine prolapse, which is characterised by a shifting of the position of the uterus wherein it enters the vaginal canal
3. Ovarian cancer, cervical cancer or endometrial cancer
4. Vaginal bleeding that cannot be characterised as normal
5. Endometriosis
6. Development of a condition in which the uterus thickens known as adenomyosis; and 
7. Chronic pain in the pelvic region

In Ayurveda, the uterus is associated with the Pitta dosha (fire element), and is considered to be a storehouse of metabolic fire. In fact, this is the reason why after a hysterectomy is performed, a woman generally loses the zest for life along with her creativity and feels demotivated, depressed, sentimental or lethargic. But Ayurveda can help in regaining your vitality post hysterectomy. Here's how:

Weight Management - How Ayurveda Can Contribute To It?

Ayurveda is a renowned life science that has been credited with changing lives since ancient times. Not only can it prevent diseases and ailments, but it can also cure them with its combination of herbal medication, everyday routine and yogic poses.

Weight management is a field that also enjoys various Ayurvedic remedies. Some of them are as follows.

-        Herbs: Herbs are a way of healing used by Ayurveda, and the use of various herbs can help in hastening the metabolism for healthy weight management.

-        Taste: Ayurveda recognises six distinct tastes that should be incorporated into one's daily diet. These tastes include salty, pungent, sour, sweet, bitter and finally, astringent. Each of these tastes has several properties that balance the various hormones and health factors in one's body. These tastes form the various counterpoints to alleviate all kinds of health problems, which finally help in effective weight management. Also, one must eat all the seasonal fruits and vegetables to keep the body and hormones in good balance. 

-        Exercise: While a daily routine of exercise is a must in any life science, Ayurveda too propagates the devotion of at least 45 minutes to one hour towards some form of exercise. Walking is said to be the most important and effective forms of exercise, followed by several yoga poses that can help in better weight management. Also, as per Ayurveda, it is important to move after each and every meal, so that a routine of eating and activity is built into the system. 

-        Sleep: Ayurveda recognises sleep or rest as one of the most important aspects of a healthy lifestyle. While good eating habits and exercise form one side of it, sleep or rest completes the triangle. One can also practice the Savasana or resting pose for a period of rest. And at least six to seven hours of sleep is a must as per Ayuveda.

-        Meditation: This practice helps in focussing the awareness which can instil the desired function like weight management in the body. Being mindful of what your body needs can also help in eating and exercising right.

Weight management is a lifelong process in Ayurveda.
