Ayurveda


Ayurveda is a 5000 year old healing system, developed in the Vedas. This system uses medicines derived from nature, and the enforcement of healthy lifestyle changes to treat diseases, maintain recovery, and also help an individual realise his/her vitality. It works on the ideology that true health is more than just recovering from an illness - it is that and then creating a balance between the environment, mind, body, and spirit to maintain complete health and productivity.

Arthritis & Rheumatic Diseases (Joint Pain)

“Arthritis” literally means joint inflammation. Although joint inflammation is a symptom or sign rather than a specific diagnosis, the term ‘Arthritis’ is often used to refer to any disorder that affects the joints. These disorders fall within the broader category of Rheumatic disorders. There are diseases characterised by inflammation of one or more connecting or supporting structures of the body. They especially affect joints, tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Some common signs and symptoms are pain, swelling, and stiffness. Some rheumatic diseases also can involve internal organs. Based on patient history and physical examination, the doctor may order laboratory tests and x-rays or other imaging tests to help confirm a diagnosis. A sample of blood, urine, or synovial fluid (lubricating fluid found in the joint) may be needed for the lab tests.

Cervical Spondylosis (Neck Pain)

Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine that is most likely caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral discs. This includes the discs or cushions between the neck vertebrae and the joints between the bones of the cervical spine. These changes can compress one or more of the nerve roots. In advanced cases, the spinal cord becomes involved. People who are very active at work or in sports may be more likely to have this. The major risk factor is ageing. Other factors are obesity, heavy lifting, or a lot of bending and twisting, previous neck and spine injuries and/or surgery, ruptured or slipped disc, severe arthritis, and small fractures to the spine from osteoporosis. Symptoms often develop slowly over time, but they may get worse suddenly. Pain may spread to the upper arm, forearm, or fingers.

Back Pain Management

Lumbar Spondylosis refers to a collection of degenerative disorders that can lead to lower back pain as people age. The main causes are internal disc disruption, degenerative disc disease, and segmental instability. The intervertebral disc is mostly made up of water. This allows it to maintain its cushion-like properties. As people age, the intervertebral disc loses some of its water content. Thus, the outer layers of the disc are more likely to develop cracks or tears. These can be a significant source of lower back pain, leading to internal disc disruption. When the outer layer of the disc cracks, it loses its normal water content. This reduces its ability to act as a cushion for the loads applied to the spine. Symptoms include chronic lower back pain which is often made worse with sitting or bending forward. Pain is persistent and lasts longer than six weeks.

Multiple Sclerosis Management

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. It affects the brain and spinal cord. Early MS symptoms include weakness, tingling, numbness, and blurred vision. Other signs are muscle stiffness, thinking problems, and urinary problems. The diagnostic criteria, "Charcot Triad", consists of dancing eyes, tremors, and telegraphic speech. While the cause is not clear, the underlying mechanism is thought to be either destruction by the immune system or failure of the myelin-producing cells. Treatment can relieve MS symptoms, delay disease progression, and improve the quality of life. Ayurveda treatments and medicaments are both internal and external, such as dhanyamla dhara, kashaya dhara, ksheera dhara, thaila dhara, abyanga, and panchakarma.

Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease characterized by varying degrees of weakness of the skeletal (voluntary) muscles of the body. It is caused by a defect in the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles. The symptoms include eye muscle weakness, eyelid drooping (ptosis), blurry or double vision (diplopia), unstable gait, a change in facial expression, difficulty in swallowing, shortness of breath, impaired speech, and weakness in the arms, hands, fingers, legs, and neck. Muscle weakness caused by myasthenia gravis worsens as the affected muscle is used repeatedly. Since symptoms typically improve with rest, muscle weakness may come and go. However, the symptoms of myasthenia gravis tend to progress over time, usually reaching their worst within a few years after the onset of the disease.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, mainly affecting the motor system and the nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. At early stages, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, thinking and behavioural problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease, and depression being the most common psychiatric symptom. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep, and emotional problems. In Ayurveda, the disease is managed by therapies and therapeutics which vary according to nature, age, physical build, duration, and the severity of the disease.

Psoriasis Management

Psoriasis is a chronic non-infectious inflammatory disease of the skin, characterized by well-defined erythematous plaques bearing large, adherent silvery scales. Plaque pattern is the most common type. Lesions are well marked and range from a few millimetres to several centimetres in diameter. The guttate pattern is usually seen in children and adolescents. This may be the first sign of the disease, which is often triggered by tonsillitis. The scalp can become involved. Involvement of the nails is common with thimble pitting onycholisis. Flexural psoriasis is commonest in women and in the elderly. Palm psoriasis may be hard to recognize as its lesions are often poorly demarcated and barely erythematous. Napkin psoriasis spreads outside the napkin area and may give the first clue to a psoriatic tendency in an infant.

Obesity Management

Generally, an obese individual is considered to weigh more than one-fifth of their normal weight range. Obesity can be defined as an excessive acquirement of total body fat. The standard for obesity for adult men and women is established as above 20% for men and 30% body fat for women. The location of adipose (fatty) tissue in the body should also be considered, fat distributed in the abdominal region poses a greater health risk compared to fat deposited at the thigh and buttocks. Obesity contributes to the development of coronary diseases, diabetes, hypertension, osteoarthritis, elevated blood lipid levels, kidney and gallbladder disorders. Obesity has been implicated in an increased incidence of some types of cancer. Overweight individuals suffer from osteoarthritis (joint pain), menstrual irregularities, bad body odour, and psychological illnesses.

Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries includes a wide range of issues like simple spine injuries, ligament injuries, meniscal tears, etc. Ayurveda has very effective remedies that can either be used principally or as supportive therapy for numerous orthopaedic problems encountered by sportspersons. Ayurveda has very effective herbal formulations & therapies which can speed up the process of healing, reduce post-surgery recovery periods, rehabilitation of an injured muscle, bone, and performance levels.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis literally means ‘porous bones’, a condition which results in reduced bone density and increased fragility of the bones. This, combined with the formation of weaker bone crystals, puts afflicted individuals at higher risk of getting fractured after a fall, with common sites of fracture including the hip, spinal vertebra, and wrist.

Some risk factors for osteoporosis are modifiable, such as smoking and poor nutrition. Patients with osteoporosis have no symptoms until a bone fracture occurs. The diagnosis of osteoporosis can be suggested by x-rays and confirmed by tests to measure bone density. Osteoporosis can be very well managed with ayurveda medications along with diet, lifestyle modifications, and external therapies which vary according to every individual and their respective disease.

Spine Related Disorders

The spine, or backbone, is made up of small bones (vertebrae) stacked - along with discs - one on top of another. A healthy spine, when viewed from the side, has gentle curves to it. The curves help the spine absorb stress from body movement and gravity. When viewed from the back, the spine should run straight down the middle of the back. When abnormalities of the spine occur, the natural curvatures of the spine are misaligned or exaggerated in certain areas, as occurs with IVDP (Intervertebral Disc Prolapse), lordosis, kyphosis, and scoliosis.

Respiratory Allergic Diseases

Allergic reactions are caused by substances (allergens) to which allergic people have become sensitised. Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) tend to be due to food, insect stings, or medicines. Nonetheless, many people can be allergic to allergens in the air and the general environment (aeroallergens), including pollen from trees and grasses, house dust mite, moulds, and pets such as cats and dogs. Through Ayurveda, stress and anxiety can be minimized to a great extent. A disciplined lifestyle, Ayurveda therapies, Panchkarma, and easily digested food is prescribed for an allergic person. Easily digested food is prescribed for allergic person.

Musculoskeletal Disorders

Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs are injuries and disorders that affect the human body's movement or musculoskeletal system. They result in pain in the body's joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support the limbs, neck, and back. MSDs can arise from a sudden exertion (eg, lifting a heavy object), or they can arise from making the same motions repeatedly, repetitive stress injuries, or from repeated exposure to force, vibration, or an awkward posture. Injuries and pain in the musculoskeletal system caused by acute traumatic events like a car accident or a fall are not considered musculoskeletal disorders. MSDs can affect many different parts of the body including upper and lower back, neck, shoulders, and extremities (arms, legs, feet, and hands). Examples of MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, epicondylitis, tendinitis, back pain, tension neck syndrome, and hand-arm vibration syndrome.

De-Addiction Programs

Many people drink alcohol socially, or occasionally, and are able to stop after a few drinks. It does not interfere with any other aspect of their life. But for some others who drink, things go awry. We do not know for sure why some people are more susceptible to alcohol abuse than others. An alcoholic is one, whose drinking causes continuing problems in any area of his life (such as family relationships, job, financial status or health) and who continues to drink in spite of these problems because he has developed a physical and psychological dependence on alcohol. When there is addiction it needs specialized therapy. Addictions can involve tobacco smoking, use of ganja, marijuana, cocaine, etc. Our programs address alcoholism, smoking, and drug abuse.

Avascular Necrosis

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head occurs due to the obstruction of blood supply to the bone. AVN of the hip is poorly understood, but this process is the final common pathway of traumatic or non-traumatic factors that compromise the already precarious circulation of the femoral head. Femoral head ischemia can lead to the death of marrow and osteocytes. The necrotic segment may also collapse. During sports endeavours, hip dislocation or subluxation is the most frequently reported traumatic means of AVN. Most cases of AVN are atraumatic and include alcohol abuse, chemotherapy, coagulopathy, corticosteroids, chronic liver disease, haemoglobinopathies, smoking, pregnancy, gout, radiation, SLE, vasculitis, Idiopathic hyperlipidemia, etc.

Hemiplegia (Paralysis)

The word 'plegia' means severe weakness. 'Hemi' implies one side of the body. 'Hemiplegia', hence, can be understood as the ‘complete paralysis of one half of the body, including one arm and a leg’. Any disease or injury in the motor centres of the brain can cause hemiplegia. Hemiplegia is an evolved form of 'hemiparesis' where half of the body is only weak. It is different from paraplegia & quadriplegia, which are usually confused with hemiplegia. Paraplegia is the paralysis of both legs, from the waist below. Quadriplegia is paralysis from the neck below - usually a consequence of a spinal cord injury. Many conditions give rise to hemiplegia. Generally, an injury to the right side of the brain will cause left-sided hemiplegia while an injury to the left side of the brain will cause right-sided hemiplegia. Treatments include Udwarthana, Virechana, Abhyanga, Niruha Vasthy, Mamsapindasweda, etc. along with internal medication, and supportive therapies.

Eye Disorders

The eyes facilitate one of our five major senses. Sight is easily one of the most important abilities we have as living beings. Unfortunately, it is difficult to provide proper rest and care to the eyes in the technology driven world we live in today. As a result, eye diseases and dysfunctions are widely prevalent. Some eye diseases include conjunctivitis, eye allergies, pain, and twitching, degenerative ophthalmitis, etc. Treatments can include Sirasularivajrarasa vati, Netrabindu eyedrops, eye exercises, etc.

Digestive Diseases

The digestive system is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube. It runs from the mouth to the anus and includes the oesophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines. It also encompasses the liver, gallbladder and pancreas. Liver dysfunctions are fairly widespread. Illnesses that affect the liver include the following conditions: cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, inflammation (hepatitis) from infectious (hepatitis B, hepatitis C) or non-infectious causes (chemical or autoimmune hepatitis), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and metabolic disorders. There are numerous other types of digestive disorders. In general, you should see your doctor if you have: blood in your stool, changes in bowel habits, severe abdominal pain, unintentional weight loss, heartburn not relieved by antacids, continuous vomiting, sweating, etc. Treatments involve lifestyle changes, pathya ahara, and herbal supplements.

Age Related Disorders

Ageing is the process of becoming older. It signifies the accretion of changes in an individual over time. Ageing also refers to a multidimensional process of physical, psychological, and social change. Ageing associated diseases are those associated with increasing frequency with increasing senescence. It is important to note that all adult humans age, but not all adult humans experience all age-associated diseases. Examples of ageing-associated diseases are cardiovascular disease, dementia, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, and Alzheimer's disease. The incidence rate of all of these diseases increases rapidly with ageing. The ageing process itself also introduces many changes in normal bodily processes. Our treatments slow down such diseases, help graceful ageing and prevent early degeneration. Treatments include Abhayangam, Shashtikapinda Sweda, Siropichu, etc.

Supportive Therapy for Developmental Delay in Children

During the growth of a child, he or she develops different skills, like sitting up straight, smiling, walking, or waving. These skills are known as developmental milestones. There is a normal variation of age in which a child achieves such specific developmental milestones. Developmental delay refers to “a child who is not achieving milestones within the age range of that normal variability”. Some causes are premature birth, infection during pregnancy, and underlying diseases. Initially, it can be difficult or even impossible to state whether the delay indicates a long-term issue with his/her development or learning (i.e.known as a disability) or whether he/she will ‘catch-up’ and have no delays to their development and learning. Early identification of developmental delays minimizes the effects of the problem. Parents who have concerns about their child’s development should consult doctors at the earliest. Treatments include Thalam, Matravasthy, Siropichu, Udwarthana, etc. along with herbal supplements, supportive services, and occupational therapy.

Student Care Wing

Student care, for various stages of a student's growth, is an emerging need. Students, at the school level as well as the college level, are meeting with quite a number of problems like learning disabilities, behavioural problems, problems with adjusting to new situations, disturbing ailments, etc. Students are the future of a nation, and a healthy student community is inevitable for a healthy tomorrow. Emotional and social support is necessary for them to cope up with different situations and sometimes even medical aid may be needed. Students having ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), Cerebral palsy (CP), Autism Spectrum Disorder, Non-Specific Global Developmental Delay, etc. need special care.
