Back Pain - Is Homeopathy The Best Line Of Treatment?

Pain in the back can be due to a number of reasons. It may be habitual, occupational, sports-related, or idiopathic.

  • Habitual pain is usually due to patients being habituated to a faulty posture.
  • Occupational pain is related to professions, which require standing or driving for long hours or professions like dentists who need to have a bent posture for extended periods of time.
  • Sports-related pain usually affects athletes or children who bend their back inadvertently during taking part in sports.

Apart from these, back pain may also occur due to unknown or unrelated reasons. Homeopathic is a great alternative compared to allopathic medicines because it has no side effects and the cure is long term. The several homeopathic medications that may be used for back pain are as follows:

  1. Sulphur: It is a great remedy for patients who have back pain due to a slouching posture and whose pain worsens when they stand up.
  2. Ruta Graveolens: It is the remedy of choice in cases the patient experiences stiffness in joint or muscles, accompanied with feeling of soreness and lameness all over the back.
  3. Aesculus: It is a good homeopathic remedy in cases of very low back pain, which gets worse when the patient tried to stand upright from a previously sitting position.
  4. Rhus Toxicodendron: It is a recommended medicine in cases of pain of the lower back, shoulders and neck. Pain is worsened by damp and cold weather and by movement. Relief to such pain is provided by massage, hot baths, and warm applications.
  5. Arnica: This homeopathic gel is popular for its good effect on soft tissues and muscular pain.
  6. Nux Vomica: It is a great remedy for cases where pain gets worse by damp and cold weather, especially at night and painful muscle cramps are experienced in the lower back.
  7. Ignatia: It is a good remedy for emotional distress and for pain in the muscles of the lower back.
  8. Natrum Muriaticum: It is indicated for use in the pain of the lower back, which gets better from lying down on a hard surface.
  9. Bryonia: It is recommended in cases of strong pain in the lower back that prevents the patient from even moving, turning from side to side in the bed, coughing, or making any kind of sudden movement.
  10. Kali Carbonicium: It is a good remedy for patients who have frequent and strong night pains, accompanied with increased back pain during menses.

In addition to these, there are other homeopathic remedies that are recommended in cases of back pain such as Cimifuga, Calcarea Carbonica, Calcarea Phosphorica, Dulcamara, etc.

Arthritis & Spondylytis - Home Remedies At Your Rescue!

Arthritis & Spondylytis - Home Remedies At Your Rescue!

Ayurveda is based on the philosophy that health is a result of the balance between three basic elements in the body, also known as tridoshas. These are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The imbalance between these leads to various diseases. Arthritis and spondylitis, both being bone issues, is due to the formation of a substance known as ‘ama’ which are a kind of toxins. The theory behind treating joint issues is to rid the body of ama. This is done by a combination of diet, massage, and home remedies which can help control severity and progression of symptoms.

Home remedies:
Regular detoxifying the body using ginger and/or black pepper with the meal goes a long way in detoxifying the body, which also eliminates ama from the body.

  1. A tablespoon of turmeric can be boiled in milk and consumed daily
  2. Avoid foods which can induce constipation. This can be by increasing the number of fibres and reducing processed and refined foods like maida.
  3. Include herbs which have great healing powers and have been used over centuries
  4. Store water overnight in a copper vessel and drink it in the morning. The trace minerals which get absorbed do wonders for your joints.
  5. Castor oil, either a spoonful or mixed with warm milk helps in curing arthritis and spondylitis pains.
  6. Nutritional changes like the use of aloe vera and amla juices are very beneficial for the joints. These are rich in vitamin C and help build immunity too.
  7. Supplements like bone support capsules and calcium complex have traces of essential micronutrients which improves overall bone health and immunity. They are useful in controlling pain from arthritis and spondylitis.
  8. Herbs like guggul, ashwagandha, ginger, and nirgundi oil are also used since ages to help reduce bone pain.

Whole body massage using herbal oils and/or powders is greatly beneficial for reducing pain and stiffness and improving mobility. These massage movements and the powders and/or oils also help improve blood circulation and lymphatic draining, so toxins are removed and circulation is enhanced.

Panchakarma is another detox method, which includes a combination of diet and lifestyle changes. This may take about 60 to 90 days for one session but is highly rewarding.

Most yoga asanas are aimed at improving metabolism and agility. There is no asana which can add to the pain if done carefully. Under supervision, learn simple yoga asanas which can be done without damaging the already affected joint. Not only would pain and stiffness reduce, the range of motion also would gradually increase.

Arthritis is inevitable, but the above can definitely help arrest progression and reduce the severity of symptoms.

Can Ayurveda Help In Dealing With Eczema?

Can Ayurveda Help In Dealing With Eczema?

Is your skin looking swollen and feeling dry and itchy? If yes- you may be suffering from eczema. Eczema is a skin condition characterized by these symptoms along with redness. When scratched the skin may break and develop a rash. Children are more susceptible to this condition as compared to adults. Eczema is typically a recurrent infection. Treating it with conventional medication helps subdue the symptoms but does not reduce the risk of it recurring. In cases like this, Ayurveda is often the most preferred form of treatment.

  • Ayurveda is a holistic form of medication that does not address only the symptoms that can be seen but addresses the root cause of the infection. It has negligible side effects and can be prescribed to children and adults. According to Ayurveda, eczema is also known as Vicharchika. This is caused by an imbalance in the immune system. Thus, in many cases, it may be accompanied by asthma, allergic hay fever etc. An unhealthy lifestyle with excessive late nights, stress, physical, mental and sexual activities can contribute towards this condition. In addition, consuming high amounts of alcohol, coffee, spicy or sour foods and stale foods can be responsible for eczema. All of these factors aggravate the pitta dosha and lead to the collection of ama or toxins under the skin.
  • Thus, to treat eczema, it is essential to pacify the pitta dosha. The first step towards this is to have a healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid oily and spicy food as well as tea, coffee, aerated drinks, and alcohol. Processed and preserved foods should also be avoided. In addition, try eating your meals on time and avoid late nights. Wear loose, cotton clothes that allow your skin to breathe. When bathing use mild, herbal soaps and a soft towel. Yoga asanas such as Bhujangasan and Pranayam can also help boost your immunity and reduce the ama in your body. This can also help reduce stress.
  • In addition, there are certain ayurvedic home remedies that could be beneficial. Neem leaves are known for their antiseptic properties. Boil 20-30 leaves in 4-5 cups of water and wash the affected area with the cooled decoction. You could also apply a warm paste of 1 teaspoon licorice root powder and sesame oil on the affected part of your skin. This may be removed after 3-4 hours. Above all, avoid scratching the area and keep the skin well moisturized.

Sapanaji, Thanks for the query. For hypothyroidism only treatment is to take adequate dose of levothyroxine tablets and maintain TSH with in normal limit. Your present TSH level is good. As regards CBC, there is no real problem, you seem to have a bit less RBCs. For that you should take iron supplement tablets. Thanks.

Constipation & Gastric Problem - Which Yoga Asanas Can Help?

Constipation & Gastric Problem -  Which Yoga Asanas Can Help?

Lifestyle changes have taken a heavy toll on the entire digestive system. There is less fiber, more processed foods, less water and more aerated drinks, all playing havoc with the digestive process. This has led to abnormal bowel movements, no regular cleansing of the bowels, and various other gastric problems.

Ayurveda believes that a healthy body is the result of the balance between the three elements – vaata, pitta, and kapha. Increase or decrease in any of these produces specific symptoms or disease conditions. As a remedy, therefore, the aim should be to balance out these three elements, so that overall health is restored.

Constipation is caused by:

  • Reduced fiber
  • Reduced roughage
  • Reduced water intake
  • Increased processed/refined foods
  • Reduced physical activity
  • Increased refined sugar consumption

Symptoms of constipation:

Constipation can be acute or chronic. While acute may be associated with some sudden food changes, many people may be chronically constipated due to their lifestyle. These people will have the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty passing stools
  • Bloated, excessive gassy feeling
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lousy and lethargic feeling
  • Weight loss
  • Rectal bleeding if the constipation is ongoing for a long time
  • Difficulty in digestion

Some complications of constipation include hemorrhoids, fecal impaction, fecal incontinence, anal fissure and rectal bleeding. Ayurveda suggests yoga, natural remedies and food changes to treat constipation and gastric problems.

Yoga asanas:

  • Trikonasana: This helps in the easy passage of stool by working on the lower part of the digestive tract
  • Bhujanagasana: It helps remove the accumulated gas and helps in passing stools
  • Pavan muktasana: Translated into “asana which helps in the release of gas,” this is very useful in reducing flatulence and also helps to reduce abdominal fat.
  • Naukasana: This pose where the body comes into a boat shape helps in activating the intestinal juices and relieves gastric problems.

Food changes:

  • Triphala churna is a great bowel cleanser which helps in bowel movement too
  • Aloe vera juice clears the stomach
  • Castor oil is highly recommended for digestive issues and constipation
  • Bel fruit is believed to remove waste from the body
  • The leaves and roots of Nisoth (Ipomoea) have great laxative properties.
  • Isabgole (Plantago) not only cures constipation but also reduces cholesterol and helps in regulating bowel movement.
  • Avoid bakery items, red meat, processed foods, dairy products, and oily foods so that constipation can be rectified
  • Increase consumption of green leafy vegetables, make sure at least 50% of the meal is made up of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Ensure each meal contains as much whole grains and cereals as possible, not refined flour.

Hair Fall Due To PCOS - How It Can Be Treated?

Hair Fall Due To PCOS - How It Can Be Treated?

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS is very common amongst women of reproductive age. This condition affects the ovaries and is one of the leading causes of infertility. Increased hair fall is one of the other effects of this disease. According to Ayurveda, PCOS brings the Kapha dosha that normally can be found in the upper half of the body downwards along with the Pitta dosha. This affects the Prana-Vyana-Apana axis. One of the impacts of this disbalance is a loss of nutrition to tissues including the hair follicles. Without proper nutrition, the hair follicles begin to die and fall off.

Thus, addressing the Prana-Vyana-Apana axis is one way to treat hair fall caused by PCOS. Some forms of Ayurvedic treatment that can be used for this include:

  • Sarvangadhara: This involves pouring medicated oils and milk over the body.
  • ShirodharaIn this form of treatment, milk and medicated oils are poured in a continuous stream over the head.
  • Udwarthana or powder massage
  • Abhyangaor a massage with medicated oil
  • Swedana or sweat inducing treatments

Other forms of Ayurvedic treatment that may be used to treat PCOS and hair fall associated with it are:

  1. Panchakarma: Panchakarma means 5 therapies. The 5 therapies themselves vary from case to case. This helps deal with a number of issues caused by PCOS. For example, it helps regulate body weight, hormonal secretions, removes toxins, decreases resistance to insulin and enhances metabolism. The effect of this can also be seen on hair growth as hair fall is lessened and hair regrowth is enhanced.
  2. Herbal Remedies: A number of herbs also have a beneficial effect on hair fall caused by PCOS. They stimulate ovulation and regulate menstruation to balance hormone levels, destroy cysts in the ovaries, regulate blood flow during menstruation and aid in natural conception. Some of these herbs include Ashokarishta, Shatavari, Raja pravartinivati, Kumaryasava, Dashamoolakashayam, and Saptasaramkashayam.
  3. Yoga Yoga is not directly beneficial for hair loss but it treats PCOS as a whole. It helps release stress and eases the symptoms associated with PCOS including hair fall. Pranayama is one of the primary yoga exercises beneficial for PCOS. This helps relax the mind and detoxify the system. Other yoga asanas that can help reduce hair fall include the Suryanamaskar, Bhujangasana, Sirsasana, Salabhasana, Sarvangasana, and Badhakonasana

Along with this, it is necessary to eat a well-balanced diet, avoid junk food, get adequate sleep at night and meditate regularly to improve one’s emotional health.
