Rheumatic Disorders



Rheumatoid Arthritis (Vataraktha):

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic systemic disorder characterized by tissues and organs causing destruction of articular structures and leading to akkylosis of the joints.


Treatment

In all these diseases there is vitiation of Vata Dosha or it may be associated with Pitta or Kapha Dosha. According to dosha predominance, the treatments are decided.
Treatment in Ayurveda is to bring the vitiated ‘Dosha’ back to the state of equilibrium and thereby to the state of health. For treating these diseases, internal as well as external treatments are done. Herbal preparations are administered internally. Daily purgation is recommended to restore the vitiated ‘Dosha’ to the state of normalcy. Treatments like Snehana, Swedana, Abhyanga (Medicated Oil massage), Pathra Podala Swedam (Massage using herbal leaves), and Shashtika Pinda Swedam (Massage using Navara Rice) are done to prepare the body for Panchakarma Treatments. Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments like Virechana (Purgation using medicines), Vasthi (Medicated enema) are very much helpful in relieving and correcting abnormalities.
Diet – Vegetarian food to be consumed. Dairy products, sweets, oily foods, junk and fast foods, salty and sour foods, jaggery, black gram, fish, cold drinks and ice creams are to be avoided.

Mental stress (Manasikaroga):


Stress is a normal physical response to unprecedented events that may disturb the normal balance of a person. In the present day life frustrations, excess demands and many other hassles can lead to mental tension, lack of concentration, insomnia, headache, and general loss of peace of mind.

Osteoarthritis or otherwise known as Degenerative Joint Disease is caused due to the degeneration of the Articular structures including cartilages and Articular surfaces of bones. Pain, Tenderness, Stiffness, Inflammation, Creaking and Locking of joints etc, are some the clinical features of this disorder.

INFERTILITY:


Primary infertility may be defined as the couple who have never been able to become pregnant after unprotected sexual intercourse for atleast one year. Secondary infertility may be defined as the couple who have been pregnant at least once, but have not been able to become pregnant again. Causes of infertility include a wide range of both physical and emotional factors. A couple’s infertility may be due to female factors, male factors, or both.

Female infertility can be effectively managed with Ayurvedic Treatment. According to Ayurveda Arthavakshaya (menstrual problems) is due to decrease in pitta, Rasadathu, Rakthadathu or Rajas.

Astigmatisms may cause eye strain and may be combined with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Hyperopia commonly known as farsigh tedness, hyperopia is the refractive error in which an image of a distant object becomes focused behind the retina, either because the eyeball axis is too short, or because the refractive power of the eye is too weak.
Myopia commonly known as nearsightedness, is a condition in which, opposite of hyperopia, an image of a distant object becomes focused in front the retina, either because the eyeball axis is too long, or because the refractive power of the eye is too strong.

Detoxification



AYURVEDIC DETOXIFICATION:


Sree Chithra Ayur Home was built with the primary goal of offering a safe and enjoyable detoxification program of unquestionable and unparalleled result. We are very proud to offer you these detoxification and rejuvenation programs, sharing with you the oldest known medical system in the world, with pure, uncompromised value.
“Thanks to modern chemistry, eggs don’t stick to the pan, underarms are fresh all day, and SUV’s hit 60 in six seconds. But such convenience has a price: Chemicals that suffuse modern life – from well known toxins to newer compounds with unknown effects – are building up in our bodies and sometimes staying there for years.” (Article titled ‘The pollution within’ – ‘National Geographic’ Magazine, October 2006. Open the entire article by David Ewing Duncan in a separate window)
Toxins from chemicals in our food, our polluted environments, occasional drinking and smoking, stress and chemical medication all accumulate in our body over a period of time. These toxins are the cause of myriad diseases, and the effects of which are unfortunately anything but subtle. Western medicine has great difficulty removing fat soluble toxins safely and effectively from our body. Through the Ayurvedic Medical Science native to the Indian sub-continent, detoxification and rejuvenation is achieved with ‘Panchakarma’, which will not only facilitate the removal of these deep seated toxins, but do so with no negative side effects.
Removing these toxins and allowing your body to rejuvenate through Panchakarma requires a minimum of 7 nights. At Sree Chithra Ayur Home, we appreciate that no matter how much we may want to free ourselves of all of these toxins, we do not immediately have the time to do so.





BACK PAIN:


Low Back Ache (Kateegraha):

Disorders’ involving the Vertebrae and related soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments and nerves are manifested as Low Back Ache. Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Degeneration of disc between the vertebrae or herniation of the disc may be the physical cause of Low Back Ache. Low Back Ache resulting from Disc Prolapse cause radiating pain to legs due to compression of Sciatic Nerve – (Sciatica – Gridhrasi).



ASTHMA & ALLERGY:


Allergies occur when a hypersensitive immune system reacts to a common or unusual substance. In some people it is hereditary, but one can also develop an allergy at any time in his or her life. Any substance, whatever its origin, is a possible allergen. Foods, Chemicals in foods, Medicines, and Environmental factors, including Pollen, Parasites, Dust, Animal hair, and Chemical toxins, for example, can all cause allergic reactions almost anywhere in the body.

Ayurveda sees ama (toxins) and low immunity as the primary causes of most allergies. Ama can settle at the digestive level or in the various tissues, with different symptoms at each level. Ama toxicity aggravates blood and Pitta, or it can aggravate Kapha, with different symptoms.

So, the first step is to learn to relax the mind and focus on the specific areas of back pain. With practice, you can redirect the body’s energy and affect the pain. Among the Yogasanas, when there is pain, one should start with simple back-bends, such as Locust, Cat, and Sunbird. To keep the spine aligned practice Hero Pose.
Along with treatment, physiotherapy, organized lifestyle, vegetarianism, suitable physical exercises, yoga and meditation should be practiced. Ayurvedic treatment, a holistic approach for Rheumatoid Arthritis has been designed identifying the fact that the power of mind can overcome any physical aberrations.
