  2. ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS is a form of chronic inflammation of the spine and the sacroiliac joints. Chronic inflammation in these areas causes pain and stiffness in and around the spine. Over time, chronic spinal inflammation can lead to a complete cementing together (fusion) of the vertebrae, a process referred to as ankylosis. Ankylosis leads to loss of mobility of the spine. The most common presenting symptom is low back pain. Usually, pain is centered over the sacrum and may radiate to the groin and buttocks and down the legs. The typical patient is a young man who has repeated episodes of back pain waking him at night and associated with spinal stiffness in the morning. Low back pain persists, even at rest. With time, back pain progresses up the spine and affects the rib cage. Chest expansion becomes restricted with involvement of the costovertebral joints. The cervical spine is ankylosed late in the course of the disease, leading to restriction in neck movement and head rotation. Eventually, the spine is completely rigid, with loss of the normal curvatures and movement. Ayurveda offers excellent therapies for treating Ankylosing spondylitis. The strength of Ayurveda in the area of spine and joint treatments is globally appreciated. Since it addresses the root cause of the issue the results are fantastic. At CHARAKA, we offer a very effective treatment methodology based on the classical texts of Ayurveda and is engaged in doing research on AS. The treatment comprises of Detoxification, rejuvenation through Ayurvedic Panchakarma therapy along with the administration of researched medicines internally.

    Ayurvedic -heavy metal

    ayurveda has greatest technology of using metals as medicines with out any side effects. this is practiced in India since thousands of years and so many diseases have been cured using this science. this is the greatness of Indian science i.e. ayurveda. every indian shouldbe proud of this. no body else can invent this kind of technique. any metal if it is purified and processed properly as per ayurvidic texts, can be used as medicine. if it is not purified and processed properly then it will definately show toxic effect. (even this has also been explained clearly in ayurveda) those who can't invent this kind of technique and can't understand the princeples & greatness of ayurveda they can claim any thing. any body can use ayurvedic medicines with metallic ingredients if it is manufactured properly.
  8. CERVICAL SPONDYLITIS & AYURVEDA The human body is like a very finely tuned machine, where all body parts are finely interconnected. Any malfunction, either due to external or internal factors, and the body suffers. This is what we call the 'diseased' or 'afflicted' state. One of the things about machinery is that constant use will result in wear and tear of the parts of the machine. This is true about the human body to. As we grow older, through constant use over the years, different parts of the body show physical signs of wear and tear. Most of this wear and tear manifests itself in the form of aches and pains. One such manifestation is cervical spondylitis. What is Cervical Spondylitis? The word 'spondylitis' originates from the Greek word 'Spondylo', meaning vertebra. Spondylitis occurs as a result of changes in the joints of the vertebral column, mostly due to wear of the discs in between the different vertebrae, which in turn results in changes in the bones and tissues of the vertebral column. The cervix or the cervical column, near the neck, is the beginning of the spinal cord. Degeneration and wear and tear of the discs in the cervical spine causes cervical spondylitis. Cervical spondylitis is a degenerative disease that progresses with advancement in age. Earlier on, cervical spondylitis was seen usually in people around 50 to 55 years of age. However, of late, there have been numerous cases where the patient age has been lower than 55 years, in some instances even 35 years. Nowadays a large number of young executives are seen to be having this condition. Risk of cervical spondylitis increases with age As a person grows older, the chances of having cervical spondylitis increases. It goes up to 100% for a 70 year old man, and 96% in the case of a 70-year old woman. What Actually Happens Usually in older people, the discs between the vertebrae (intervertebral discs) get dehydrated. As a result, they lose their elasticity and become more compressible. Mineral deposits, usually calcium, start accumulating at these discs, thereby causing stiffness. The next question is - what causes the loss of elasticity and the resultant compression? While there has been no definite reason found for cervical spondylitis, there are many factors that can influence the occurrence. These factors individually or in combinations can cause cervical spondylitis to occur. Causes of Cervical Spondylitis Cervical spondylitis, indeed spondylitis itself, is known to be genetically influenced. Research has shown that variations of the HLA-B gene, part of a family of genes called Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA), influences the occurrence of spondylitis. It is therefore very possible for a person with a family history of cervical spondylitis to have it himself, without the influence of any of the other factors. However, this possibility exists in only a few cases, as the number of people with spondylitis as a hereditary disorder has been found to be relatively low. Another crucial factor is doing work that puts pressure on the neck region, like lifting heavy loads, gymnastics, etc. Other variations of this factor are work environments that require people to work in one position, usually bending, for long periods of time. In short, any activity that puts undue stress on the neck for prolonged periods can cause cervical spondylitis. Some examples are watching the TV seated at an odd position that puts pressure on the neck, traveling for long distances and sleeping while seated, working the phones for long hours, etc. Symptoms of Cervical Spondylitis There are quite a few symptoms that indicate cervical spondylitis. These symptoms may show up distinctively, or may overlap one another. The following are the commonly seen symptoms of cervical spondylitis: 1. Pain in the neck and shoulder regions. The pain in the neck region is usually followed by stiffening, which gradually increases. The pain in the neck area can also move downwards to the shoulders and the arms. Some patients may also experience swelling. 2. Pain in the lower areas at the back of the head, called the sub-occipital region. This pain can move downwards to the base of the neck, as well as the top of the head. 3. Radicular symptoms. Patients may sometimes display loss of reflexes in certain areas due to the compression of the spinal nerves. Other radicular symptoms include numbness and pain in specific areas, usually the arms and the shoulders. 4. Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy (CSM). Patients with CSM may experience difficulty in writing, unusual sensations, as well as weakness. 5. In rare cases, one may find loss of control over the sphincter, as well as incontinence while passing urine. Some patients may also experience urgency in passing urine. 6. A patient suffering from cervical spondylitis suffers from compression of the spinal cord, which in turn leads to a compression of the spinal nerves. This may manifest itself in the form of an unstable gait. 7. Another prominent symptom is the weakening of the muscles in the upper arms, slowly progressing to the lower regions of the arms. This is preceded by pain in the upper region of the arms. Treating Cervical Spondylitis Once a patient exhibits symptoms of cervical spondylitis, the physician usually asks for X-rays and an MRI of the cervical spine. The existence of the cervical spondylitic condition can be clearly seen on a MRI. Once the diagnosis of cervical spondylitis is made, the next step is to start the treatment procedure. AYURVEDA suggests the following treatment: · Diet management · Intensive muscle training, yoga, pranayama & other stress releaving exercises · Lifestyle management · Ayurveda Panchakarma Therapies for a period of 7/14/21/28 days according to the severity of the disease which includes Abhyangam( A whole body massage with specific herbal oils, achieves deepest healing effects by naturally harmonizing Body, Mind, Soul and the Senses), Swedam(medicated steam bath), Nasyam(administration of medicated oil through the nose, cleanses accumulated Kapha toxins from the head and neck region), Elakizhi (herbal leaf bundle massage), Shiro dhara(pouring continuous stream of medicated oil, buttermilk etc on the fore head and doing a gentle & soothing head massage), Shiro vasti(A special technique of bathing the head in medicated oils using a special cap like apparatus), Pizhichil (medicated oil bath),Shastika Sali Pinda Swedam/ Navarakizhi(A highly effective rejuvenation technique using a special type of rice that is cooked, tied into boluses and dipped into an herbal decoction and warm milk, then skillfully massaged all over the body), Greeva vasthi(a treatment done on to the neck to decrease cervical spinal compression), Vasthi(medicated enema)etc. Medication Medicines used in this treatment includes Thailams, Churnams, Asavams, Aristams, Ghrithams, Lehyams etc prepared from ayurvedic herbs like Rasna, Nirgundi, Dasamoola, Aswagandha etc based on severity, stage of the disease, age, prakruthi of the patient. Vata hara, Brumhana Oushada Ahara Vihara are also advised to these patients. Exercise People with weak neck muscles are more prone to neck problems and in such cases, an exercise programme to strengthen the neck is a good idea. Pranayama and other neck exercises releaves the stress in the neck.

    Ayurveda

    About Ayurveda Thousands of years back, in antiquity, remains the roots of a science that is today gaining wide acceptance and popularity, a system of medicine which could heal with its natural remedies most of the so called incurable diseases is ‘Ayurveda' . Ayurveda, the world's most ancient, yet uniquely futuristic system of healing and good health. The most eco-friendly system of treatment with no harmful side effects. Ayurveda means ‘Science or Wisdom of life' is an ancient philosophy based on a deep understanding of eternal truths about the human body, mind and spirit. It is a system introduced to the human evolution for treating the physical and mental ailments ranging from symptom to syndrome. But the incursions of western culture and civilization and the ascent of modern medicine put this science in the shade, albeit temporarily. Modern medicine, which boosted about its all-pervasive capabilities to protect the human health, has started accepting their limitations. The wide spread use of antibiotics and antibacterial agents has brought the world today to face a dramatic increase in the microbial threats. Scientists have identified a number of new diseases causing deadlier hazards than ever over the past two decades. As a system, which largely depends on chemicals, dangerous side effects of these medicines have become one of its major concerns for their usage. Ayurveda in its broader perspective is a philosophy that deals with the quality of life. Preservation of health and its maintenance are the main objectives of this science. A fully developed medical system comprising eight branches or the Astangas – like Kaya chikista (General Medicine), Bala chikista (Paediatrics), Graha chikista (Occult and Tantric medicine), Oordhwanga chikista (ENT), Shalya (Surgery), Dhamstra (Toxicology), Jara (Geriatrics), and Vrisha chikista (Aphrodisiac medicine). Ayurveda is a system introduced to the human evolution for treating the physical and mental ailments ranging from symptom to syndrome. The methodology is based on principled diagnosis for its practical approach in dealing with acute and chronic diseases. This multi-faceted medicinal system treats the disease at any stage through a series of traditional treatments based on scientific explanations. Ayurveda is all about how to maintain life in a state of perfect health and takes a patient in entirety on physical, mental and spiritual levels while treating the disease. With advanced researches bringing to light more and more about the influence of mind over body, Ayurveda is fast becoming a holistic alternative to all other systems of medicine. The treatment involves both – conservative methods by palliative medicines, and practical procedures by Panchakarma therapies.

  11. LOW BACK PAIN & AYURVEDA<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:" /><o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Low back pain is one of the most common pain disorders today .It is a chronic condition characterized by a persistent dull or sharp pain per the lower back. It may be also associated with burning, stiffness, numbness or tingling with the pain shooting down the buttocks and the legs.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> What are common causes of low back pain?<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Nerve root syndromes are those that produce symptoms of nerve impingement (a nerve is touched), often due to a herniation (or bulging) of the disc between the lower back bones. Sciatica is an example of nerve root impingement. Impingement pain tends to be sharp, in one spot, and associated with numbness in the area of the leg that the affected nerve supplies. <o:p></o:p> Herniated discs are produced as the spinal discs degenerate or grow thinner. The jellylike central portion of the disc bulges out of the central cavity and pushes against a nerve root. Intervertebral discs begin to degenerate by the third decade of life. Herniated discs are found in a third of adults older than 20. Only 3% of these, however, produce symptoms of nerve impingement. <o:p></o:p> Spinal stenosis occurs as intervertebral discs lose moisture and volume with age, which decreases the disc spaces. Even minor trauma under these circumstances can cause inflammation and nerve root impingement, which can produce classic sciatica without disc rupture. <o:p></o:p> Spinal degeneration is caused by alterations in the disc that progress to degeneration. This coupled with disease in joints of the low back, causes spinal canal narrowing. These changes in the disc and the joints produce symptoms and can be seen on an x-ray. A person with spinal degeneration may have morning stiffness or pain while standing for a long time or walking even short distances. <o:p></o:p> Cauda equina syndrome is a medical emergency. Disc material expands into the spinal canal, which compresses the nerves. A person would experience pain, possible loss of sensation, and bowel or bladder dysfunction. This could include inability to control urination causing incontinence, or the inability to begin urination. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Musculoskeletal pain syndromes that produce low back pain include myofascial pain syndromes and fibromyalgia. <o:p></o:p> Myofascial pain is characterized by pain and tenderness over localized areas (trigger points), loss of range of motion in the involved muscle groups, and pain radiating in a characteristic distribution but restricted to a peripheral nerve. Relief of pain is often reported when the involved muscle group is stretched. <o:p></o:p> Fibromyalgia results in pain and tenderness on 11 of 18 trigger points when touched, one of which is the low back area, as classified by the American College of Rheumatology. Generalized stiffness, fatigue, and muscle ache are reported. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Other skeletal causes of low back pain include osteomyelitis or sacroiliitis (infections of the bones of the spine). This pain is usually worse at night and is worse when sitting or standing for a long time. <o:p></o:p> Tumors, possibly cancerous, can be a source of skeletal pain. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Back Pain Symptoms<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Pain in the lumbosacral area (lower part of the back) is the primary symptom of low back pain. <o:p></o:p> The pain may radiate down the front, side, or back of your leg, or it may be confined to the low back. <o:p></o:p> The pain may become worse with activity. <o:p></o:p> Occasionally, the pain may be worse at night or with prolonged sitting such as on a long car trip. <o:p></o:p> You may have numbness or weakness in the part of the leg that receives its nerve supply from a compressed nerve. <o:p></o:p> An example of this would be an inability to plantar flex the foot. This means you would be unable to stand on your toes or bring your foot downward. This occurs when the first sacral nerve is compressed or injured. <o:p></o:p> Another example would be the inability to raise your big toe upward. This results when the fifth lumbar nerve is compromised. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Treatment <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Conservative treatment is the most likely course of action for most patients. Treatment options include rest, Traction, Short wave diathermy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, weight control, steroid injections in step by step order. <o:p></o:p> If a patients does not get relief after 8 to 12 weeks of conservative therapy surgical intervention is considered.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Ayurvedic Perspective <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Ayurveda holds that low back pain is a result of vitiation of one of the three principal 'doshas'. 'Kateegraham'/'Prishtasoola' or low back pain is an indication of Vata aggravation and bone and muscle weakness. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Ayurvedic Treatment <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Treatment in Ayurveda is to bring the vitiated 'dosha' back to the state of equilibrium and thereby to the state of health.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> ayurveda management Comprises of three approaches, Elimination (Shodhanam), of the accumulated toxic products of digestion, metabolism and the disease process, Pacification (Shamanam) and correction of the entities responsible for altered functioning and Rejuvenation (Rasayanam) of the bodily tissue to regain and maintain natural strength and vitality. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> For treating low back pain, internal as well as external treatments are done. Ayurvedic medicine offers conservative treatment as oral & external medication. This herbal medicine can help you reverse the disease-process.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> Ayurvedic Treatment usually involves a series of Panchakarma therapies like ABHYANGAM, SWEDAM, NASYAM, ELAKIZHI, NAVARAKIZHI, KATI VASTHI, KASHAYA VASTHI & ANUVASANA VASTHI etc. for treating low back pain.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Abhyangam & Swedam A whole body massage with specific herbal oils to nourish and revitalize the body tissues (Dhatus) and to allow the toxins to be removed from the body. Abhyanga has much deeper and far more reaching effects than an ordinary massage, which uses mineral oils and lotions. This massage is performed symmetrically by two therapists for one hour and is usually followed by medicated steam bath (Sweda). It is one of the most rejuvenating treatments of Ayurveda.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Patra Pinda Sweda (Elakkizhi) A highly rejuvenating treatment, in which fresh plants are fried with several other herbal ingredients and tied into boluses, dipped in warm medicated oil and simultaneously massaged all over the body for one hour. It is applied after Abhyanga.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Sarvangadhara (Pizhichil) Kayaseka Medicated oil/milk is poured onto the body in continuous streams while being gently massaged, for one hour. It is extremely soothing and relaxing. It acts as a free radical scavenger, toning, strengthening and deeply rejuvenating the whole body. It is applied after Abhyanga.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Sashtika Sali Pinda Sweda (Navarakizhi)<o:p></o:p> Ahighly effective rejuvenation technique using a special type of rice that is cooked, tied into boluses and dipped into a herbal decoction and warm milk, then skillfully massaged simultaneously all over the body for one hour after the Abhyanga.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Kati Vasti It is done keeping a certain amount of medicated luke warm oil on the specific area of back for a prescribed period of time.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Basti (Medicated Enema) Introducing liquids like medicated oils, herbal concoctions and milk per perineum (through the anus).Cleanses the accumulated toxins from all over the body.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> These are the usual therapies which are practiced for treating low back cases but if any other panchakarma therapy has to be done that is decided as per patient condition and need.<o:p></o:p> In four to six weeks, the majority of patients find their symptoms are relieved without surgery! Be optimistic about your treatment plan and remember that less than 5% of back problems require surgery!<o:p></o:p>
