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.

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-

  • 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.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Hyperthyroidism | Ayushakti Ayurveda

Hyperthyroidism is a metabolic disorder, characterized by the excessive production of thyroxin by the thyroid gland. The increased metabolism causes loss of weight and symptoms such as trembling and sweating of hands.

Hyperthyroidism | Ayurvedic Treatment For Thyroid

SOME COMMON CAUSES SYMPTOMS OF HYPERTHYROIDISM

  • Graves’ Disease

Graves Disease | Ayurvedic Medicine For Thyroid

The most common cause of hyperthyroidism is Graves’ disease. The thyroid gland itself over-produces thyroid hormone and is no longer able to respond to the pituitary and hypothalamus. Graves’ disease is five times more common in women and runs in families. Risk factors for Graves’ disease include smoking, viral illnesses, radiation to the neck, and medications. The condition is associated with an eye disease called Graves’ ophthalmopathy and skin lesions called dermopathy. Diagnosis of Graves’ disease is made by blood tests, and a nuclear medicine thyroid scan.

  • Functioning adenoma (“hot nodule”) and Toxic Multinodular Goiter (TMNG)

Functioning Adenoma & Toxic Multinodular Goiter

When the thyroid gland tissue overgrows, either in individual nodules (the functioning adenoma) or in multiple clusters (multinodular goiter), it is generally termed “goiter.” Goiters appear as large, swollen areas in the front of the neck near the Adam’s apple. These goiters may over-produce thyroid hormone, causing symptoms of hyperthyroidism.

  • Excessive intake of thyroid hormones

Excessive intake of thyroid medicines | Causes of Thyroid

Hyperthyroidism may be caused by the intake of too much thyroid medication. Supplemental thyroid medication is given to patients who have low thyroid hormone, or hypothyroidism. If the dose is not correct or the patient takes too much of the medication, hypothyroidism may occur. Some people may abuse thyroid hormone medications in an attempt to lose weight. Taking thyroid hormones, the body does not need may result in hyperthyroidism.

  • Abnormal secretion of TSH

Abnormal secretion of TSH | Ayurvedic Treatment For Thyroid

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is secreted by the pituitary gland and causes the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormone. A tumor or problem with the pituitary gland can cause and excess of TSH to affect the thyroid and can result in hyperthyroidism.

  • Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland)

Inflammation of the thyroid gland | Symptoms of Thyroid

Thyroiditis is inflammation of the thyroid. It is usually caused by a viral illness. The patient may have generalized neck pain, sore throat, fever, chills, and a tender thyroid. The inflammation of the thyroid causes an increased amount of thyroid hormone to be secreted into the body, causing hyperthyroidism. After pregnancy, some women – up to 8% – may develop a condition called lymphocytic thyroiditis where white blood cells called lymphocytes accumulate in the glandular tissue. Thyroiditis can be diagnosed with blood tests and a thyroid scan.

  • Excessive iodine intake

Excessive iodine intake | Causes of Thyroid

An important component of thyroid hormone is iodine. If an excess of iodine is ingested the thyroid may over-produce thyroid hormone and cause hyperthyroidism. Some medications such as such as the anti-arrhythmic drug amiodarone (Cordarone) contain large amounts of iodine and can induce thyroid dysfunction.

Ayushakti’s ayurvedic treatment for hyperthyroidism aims to control its symptoms and prevent them from getting severe. Ayurveda strives to cure the root cause or pathology of hyperthyroidism i.e. Grave’s disease. Stress, smoking, exposure of neck to radiation, certain medications and persistent viral infections can precipitate Grave’s disease.

Some common symptoms of hyperthyroidism is a rapid heartbeat (tachycardia). The feeling of a racing heart and/or palpitations can be distressing to patients.

SYMPTOMS OF HYPERTHYROIDISM

  • Excessive hunger
  • Frequent bowel movements
  • Nervousness
  • Intolerance towards heat
  • Difficulty to concentrate
  • Scanty or irregular menstruation
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Sleeplessness
  • Excessive sweating
  • Tremors in extremities

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT FOR HYPERTHYROIDISM

According to Ayurveda, impaired digestion of food leads to blockage of the minute channels in the body causing an imbalance in the function of the thyroid gland. Hyperthyroidism reflects profound derangement of Vata and Pitta Doshas. The two vitiated Doshas overstimulate the gastric fire which leads to excessive hunger. Vayu has dynamic, light and unstable properties. Escalation of dynamic and unstable characteristics causes tremors in the extremities, sleeplessness, nervousness and difficulty to concentrate the mind. It is also marked by frequent bowel movement and irregular menstruation. The increased lightness of Vayu makes the body lighter (because of weight loss). Since Pitta is basically hot, the patient has excessive sweating and intolerance towards heat.

DIET & LIFESTYLE ADVICE TO FOLLOW

  • Include enough quantity of milk, pure ghee and milk products in food.
  • Eat fresh fruits like banana and melons, and dry fruits like dates and walnuts, which reduce aggravated Vata and Pitta.
  • Yoga, Pranayama and meditation also help in reigning over aggravated Vata and Pitta.

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.

To balance thyroid function naturally, Ayushakti recommends Detox Panchakarma Treatment with customized, balanced diet.

Read about the Ayushakti’s do-at-home detox diet and reduce two to three kgs or more in 30 days….

Five days, every month, follow a detox soup (mung and vegetable) diet. Whenever you are hungry, just have this soup. This soup helps remove the toxins and bloating from various crooks and crannies of your body.

Detox soup is very easy to make and is quite palatable

Ingredients :

1 cup soaked green Mung & 2 cups of vegetables. (you can use vegetables like pumpkin, bottle gourd, carrot, onion, French beans, snake gourd, turai, galka,( soft gourd), tendli etc. Cook the mung along with the vegetables in a pressure cooker. Add garlic ginger paste and seasoning to taste. Garnish with coriander leaves and drink warm.

Mung relieves inflammation and bloating, while flushing out toxins from the body. It is low in calories and leaves you feeling lighter and more energetic.

On the sixth day, you can return to a normal diet but restrict foods like wheat, fermented, sour, deep fried foods, red meat like pork and beef and food that tends to create gas in the body. Citrus foods like lemon and tomato should be avoided. Try and avoid carbohydrates including rice, bread, pasta, chappatti, potato, fruits for a few days.

Your diet should now consist of more green and leafy vegetables like pumpkin, bottle gourd, carrot, French beans, turai, galka(soft gourd), tendli, spring onion and tofu. Mung and mung dal, tuvar daal (lentil) are very good. Avoid carbs as much as possible. Non vegetarians can have eggs, fish and chicken for their protein requirement.

You can also make mung dal or besan(chickpea flour) pancakes or chilla in place of rotti/chappatti.

Spice up your foods with ginger, garlic, cumin, asafoetida, corriander which reduces gas formation in the body.

The weight loss of three to five kgs leaves you feeling lighter and more energetic. If you wish to maintain this feeling of lightness and energy, avoid wheat, sour, fermented foods and red meat from your diet.

The opposite of a light, energetic, and healthy feeling is exactly what Ms. Castelino was feeling. Work, travelling, and outside food had resulted in high sugar levels which weren’t advisable for her body.

With the help of this diet formed by Ayushakti doctors, a healthy state of being was once again a part of Ms.Castelino’s life.
