The world is at risk with the growing cases of Diabetes | Ayushakti Ayurved

Diabetes is one of the chronic non-communicable diseases that affect most of the people above the age of 40. And now, the situation is becoming worse as this disease is affecting even the children. The children from age 4-16 are suffering from high blood sugar.

In all, there are 31 lakh Diabetics in India. Diabetes occurs when your blood glucose or blood sugar level increases. When a hormone called glucose stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells, it becomes a problem. Blood glucose is one of the most important energy forms in the body. When there is a lack of insulin in your body, it hinders the breakdown of glucose to form the energy. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells.

Ayurvedic Approach Towards Diabetes | Ayushakti Ayurved

  • Type 1 Diabetes is characterized by a lack of insulin production.
  • Type 2 Diabetes is caused by the body’s ineffective use of insulin. It often results from excess body weight and physical inactivity.

However, several reasons have made a large number of population Diabetic. Some of these are – inadequate sleep, excessive smoking & drinking, poor health, unhealthy diet, etc.

A person suffering from Diabetes can further experience many other problems like heart diseases, kidney failures, stroke, retinal issues, nerve problems, dental issues, etc. which may worsen by age. Hence, it is necessary to cure Diabetes at the primary stage before the other problems take place.

The initial symptoms of Diabetes are:

Managing Diabetes is tough but not impossible. Hence, when it comes to relieving Diabetes without any side-effects, Ayurveda works best. Called as ‘Madhumeha’, Ayurveda suggests to cut-off the sugar intake & increase the consumption of leafy vegetables.

Celebrate Diwali with Healthy Snacks | Health Benefits of Diwali Sweets

Diwali is the most auspicious festival celebrated by the Hindus across the Indian land. We clean & decorate our house, light it up with Diyas and many more. But every Diwali is incomplete without the special Diwali sweets and snacks. From scrumptious yet yummy Karanjis to Anarsas dipped in Ghee and spiral Chaklis, making sweets and savories that will probably be going to fulfill your sweet tooth.

Diwali is the most precious in the vision of Ayurveda as it is one of the festivals to nurture health & peace along with joy. In Ayurveda, one believes in maintaining the balance between health elements (Doshas)- Vata, Pitta & Kapha. Ayurveda recommends a properly balanced diet as the festival falls in between the seasonal change and therefore, a change in diet is necessary.

Celebrate Diwali With Healthy Snacks | Health Benefits Of Diwali Sweets

When it comes to Diwali diet, we need to make the snacks meant for celebrating the holy festival. It is also necessary because we need to perform the ‘Bhog‘ ritual when we worship Lord Ganesha during Laxmi Poojan. In Diwali, we mainly prepare sweet and fried food. During the winter season, the Vata gets aggravated which leads to cramps in joints, muscles. Hence, to relieve such pain, one should consume a lot of Ghee & oil in their diet to balance aggravated Vata. Ghee or oil in sweets acts as a lubricant to provide nourishment to the bones and helps in maintaining Vata in the body.

Every snack in Diwali is made with Ghee as it not only helps in nourishing the bones but also aids in proper digestion of food, strengthens the sensory organs, detoxifies & rejuvenates the body, improves the immune system, memory & vitality. Along with the Ghee, cane sugar has its benefits that increase seminal fluids and helps in regulating Pitta & Vata. Wheat & Rava used in sweets strengthens the tissues & energizes the body.

This Diwali, nourish your body with the richness of Diwali sweets and get blessed with good health. Happy Diwali!

Ayurvedic Relief From Monsoon Sickness

The monsoons bring relief from the harsh heat during the summers but with their respite, they also bring along with them various sicknesses. Every monsoon season, the risk of catching various diseases is extremely high due to unhygienic conditions and not adhering to basic preventive measures. After so many treatments and allopathic medicines, we still struggle to get monsoon flu, this leads to allergies, lung cancer and asthma in the long run. Then Ayurveda comes into relief. As per Ayurveda, the balance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha is generally misbalanced during the monsoon season. The Pitta in particular that also represents the digestive fire in the human body is also affected. Due to this, the digestion weakens and this serves as the basis for various diseases. The most common amongst these troubles is the common cold and cough that affects a significant number of the population.

Ayurvedic Relief From Monsoon Sickness | Ayushakti Ayurveda

A cough is a sudden explosive movement of air to clear material from the respiratory airway. It helps to protect the lungs from foreign particles. Coughing can bring up phlegm; a mixture of mucus, debris, and cells. If it becomes severe and chronic it can result in shortness of breath, hoarseness, dizziness, and wheezing. Viral coughs are highly contagious and spread quickly in any social group.

What Are The Symptoms Of The Monsoon Diseases

  • Coughing and hoarseness
  • Irritation in the throat
  • Fatigue and body aches
  • A cold, if the infection has spread to the nose

Mucus and coughing play an important role in clearing infections and particles in the respiratory system. The best thing we can do is to help our system liquefy and expel the mucus easily, diminishing the seven days of inconvenience and suffering.

Effective Home Remedy To Clear The Congestion And Relieve Frequent Cough

  • Fresh Ginger (Adrak) Juice ½ Teaspoon
  • Turmeric (Haldi) Powder ½ Teaspoon
  • Garlic (Lehsoon) Juice ¼ Teaspoon
  • Fresh Basil (Tulsi) Leaf Juice 2 Teaspoon
  • Honey (Madh) 2 Teaspoon
  • Black Pepper (Kali Mirch) Powder 2 Pinch

Effective Home Remedy To Clear The Congestion And Relieve Frequent Cough

Mix all the ingredients well. Keep it refrigerated if you are making a large quantity and wish to use take it again, then bring it to room temperature before taking it. Take 1 to 2 teaspoons of this mixture four times a day. Children can safely take this cough mixture.

Diet And Lifestyle To Follow During Monsoon

  • Completely avoid smoking.
  • Avoid exposure to cold, winds, dust, fumes and other pollutants, or cover your head, ears, and nose to protect yourself from these.
  • Give your vocal cords a rest by talking less.
  • Drink warm water, not cold, throughout the day.
  • Drink hot tea made of basil (Tulsi) leaves, fresh ginger, and mint leaves.
  • Exercise and practice yoga as a daily routine, as it will improve and maintain the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.

Eat a well-balanced diet as mentioned above. This improves the body’s immunity, which is extremely important in all respiratory ailments.

Practice The Yogic Breathing Techniques

  • For Wet Cough: Bhastrika, Kapalbharti, Ujjayi Pranayamas
  • For Dry Cough: Shitali, Sitkari

When experiencing cough or cold, completely stop milk and milk products, deep-fried foods and fruits. These foods decrease the digestive fire (Agni) and produce mucus (Kapha) and toxins (Aama). Ice, cold foods and drinks are immediate “killers” of the digestive fire. They also produce excess mucus. So, it is best to avoid them.

Foods You Should Eat More During Monsoon

  • Take warm vegetable soups with lots of spices like ginger garlic paste, pepper, etc. This will help expel the mucus and relieve the congestion of the chest and nose. Once the cough and cold are relieved, you can slowly return to a normal diet. Try to have more cooked vegetables like pumpkin, squash, marrow, courgette, ivy gourd, spinach, fenugreek leaves, french beans, bottle gourds, ridge gourds, snake gourd, smooth gourd, mange-tout, asparagus, fennel, swedes, sweet corn, onions, carrots, parsnips, beetroot, celery, chicory and leeks.
  • Potatoes should only be eaten occasionally, with their skin. Pulses like Mung and split Mung beans (green gram), Tuvar Dal (yellow lentils) and Masoor Dal (red lentils) are easy to digest, balancing and nourishing to the body. To get the full value from pulses they should be eaten along with grains (especially rice). Grains including rice, oat, rye, maize, millets, amaranth, quinoa, polenta; basically, everything other than wheat & maida.
  • Flours made from these grains and from potatoes and buckwheat are excellent substitutes for “normal” flour. Dried fruits like almonds, walnuts, apricots, figs, hazelnuts, dates and raisins can be eaten.
  • Occasionally you can have white meat like chicken, turkey, and fish (freshwater). You can replace dairy milk with almond milk, rice milk, soya milk or oat milk.

Thyroid Nodules & Its Ayurvedic Treatment | Ayushakti Ayurveda

A lump in the thyroid, the butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck. Thyroid nodules are solid or fluid-filled lumps that form within your thyroid, a small gland located at the base of your neck, just above your breastbone.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Thyroid Nodules

Symptoms :

The most common of these symptoms is a lump in the neck followed by a sense of mass while swallowing. Very rarely, nodules may cause pain or discomfort. Occasionally, however, some nodules become so large that they can-

  • Be felt
  • Be seen, often as a swelling at the base of your neck
  • Press on your windpipe or esophagus, causing shortness of breath or difficulty swallowing

In some cases, thyroid nodules produce additional thyroxine, a hormone secreted by your thyroid gland. The extra thyroxine can cause symptoms of hyperthyroidism such as-

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Increased perspiration
  • Tremor
  • Nervousness
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat

Ayushakti’s approach is to improve the metabolism and balance the immune system which creates thyroid hormone balance naturally and reduces anti thyroid antibody. The diet, lifestyle, herbs and detox therapies help relieve all the hypothyroid symptoms like panic, exhaustion, bloating of the body, indigestion, nervousness and anxiety, dryness of skin and hair etc.  

Ayushakti’s Detox Treatment is a combination of therapies that helps to improve the metabolism faster, balancing hormones, reduces inflammation and improve overall energy levels. After taking the treatment you will feel no weakness, balanced and stable state of mind and improved sleep quality. Further continuing with the herbs helps maintain normal thyroid functions and overall health for long term even after discontinuing the treatments.
