One day when Ellinor was turning side in her bed, her rib got cracked and that is the time she realized what Ayushakti vaidya saying 3 months ago was absolutely right – she has osteoporosis. Ellinor, then without wasting time, straight away came to Ayushakti Mumbai for “Arthrox” treatment.

What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis Treatment

Osteoporosis is a silent illness. Slowly over a period of 8-10 years, bones become week and osteoporosis develops. Suddenly one day there is the fracture and then you will come to know that you have osteoporosis.
So first important thing is to prevent osteoporosis by checking bone density once a year when you cross 47 years of age. This will indicate if any osteoporosis is developing or not. If yes, then you can immediately start preventive measures. Ayushakti provides Ayurvedic medicine for Osteoporosis treatment. This blog will explain to you all about Osteoporosis treatment. Ayurveda Osteoporosis treatment is most effective.

As per Ayurveda, why osteoporosis?

As per Ayurveda, all the food that you eat converts into different tissues because of Dhatu Agni (Metabolism). Calcium and vitamin D conversion to bone tissues happens with the help of Asthi Dhatu Agni. When this Asthi Dhatu Agni or metabolism does not function very well in spite of taking lots of calcium and vitamins, bones start degenerating and lead to osteoporosis.
Besides that, excess vata (air) in the body also cause degeneration. As in the atmosphere, when there is a lot of wind, everything dries up, just like in Autumn.

What can be done naturally to reverse the osteoporosis?

In osteoporosis, it is very important to increase metabolism, nourish bones constantly and reduce vata constantly. Then, Stimulate dhatu Agni and metabolism. Thus, your own calcium and vitamin D is then starting working and producing bone tissues again and Improving bone density.

How does Ayushakti’s Arthrox treatment work in osteoporosis?

Arthrox treatment is a combination of diet, herbal remedies, home remedies and deep nourishing treatments.

What is the Arthrox diet for osteoporosis?

1. To activate metabolism, mung diet is the best. Every month for 5 days, just eat mung and vegetable soup. This will burn toxins and improve metabolism remarkably.
2. For improving metabolism, daily take ¼ Tsp. ginger powder, ¼ tsp black pepper powder and 1 tsp. of coriander powder in half glass of water twice a day after eating your food. This mixture helps improving metabolism in every situation like obesity, high cholesterol, or uric acid and of course osteoporosis too.
3. Your daily Calcium intake should be 1000 to 1200 mg.

BEST FOODS FOR natural CALCIUM are:

Milk, soy milk, tofu, soybeans, white beans, kale, collard greens, broccoli, almonds and almond butter, leafy vegetables, fish, sesame seeds, rajgira (kamut).

5 Remarkable Tips to Fight Insomnia

Do you have trouble getting sleep at night? Or do you wake up in the middle of the night and keep looking at the watch? Insomnia is a common problem. It is habitual sleeplessness or the inability to sleep. Insomnia can be caused by a medical condition, improper sleep habits, specific substances, and/or certain biological factors. Insomnia can also be caused by depression. Psychological struggles can make it hard to sleep, insomnia itself can bring about changes in mood, and shifts in hormones and physiology can lead to both psychiatric issues and insomnia at the same time.

Insomnia varies from person to person. Different people need different amounts of sleep, insomnia is well-defined by the quality of your sleep, how you feel after sleeping—not looking at the number of hours or how quickly you tend to fall asleep. Even if you’re spending eight hours a night in bed, if you feel drowsy and fatigued during the day, you may be experiencing insomnia.

Instead of taking medications for insomnia, why not treat it naturally. Here are a few ways you can treat insomnia naturally.

  1. Adopting new habits to help you sleep
  • Stick to a regular sleep schedule. Don’t ignore your biological clock; get to bed at a decent time every day. This includes the weekends.
  • Avoid naps. Taking a nap during the day can disturb the sleep at night. This will make it difficult for you to fall asleep at night. If you feel like you have to take a nap, limit it to 30 minutes before 3 p.m.
  • Avoid late meals. Try to avoid heavy, rich foods within two hours of bed. Eating heavy food will take a toll on your stomach to digest this can cause heartburn.
  • Get regular exercise. Regular exercise can improve the symptoms, but it’s not a permanent fix. It takes months for it to have the full effects. 30 minutes of activity is good, but not close to bedtime.
  1. Develop a better bedtime routine

Prepare your mind and body for sleep.

  • Make sure your bedroom is quiet, dark, and cool. Noise, light, and heat can interfere with sleep. Try sleeping with a mask or draw the curtains so that there is no light entering your room.
  • Turn off screens one hour before bedtime. The light emitted from TV, tablets, smartphones, and computers suppresses your body’s production of melatonin and can severely disrupt your sleep. Instead of emailing, texting, watching TV, or playing video games, try listening to a book on tape, a podcast, or reading by a soft light.

Smell your way to sleep

Dab some lavender oil onto your temples and forehead before you hit the pillow. The aroma should be of assistance to send you off to sleep.  Put a drop of jasmine essential oil on each wrist just before you go to bed. Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil into warm bath water and enjoy a nice soak. The smells will aid you get that peaceful sleep you have been wanting.

Home Remedies for Insomnia

  • Licorice root powder and cold milk every morning on an empty stomach.
  • Boil around 3 grams of fresh mint leaves or around 1.5 grams of dried powder of mint leaves in one glass of water for 20 minutes and drink it.
  • One teaspoon of brahmi and ashwagandha powder in two glasses of water. Boil them and then reduce it to one glass and drink it.

Suffering from diabetes? Come get the best Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes in Mumbai.

Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes

Diabetes is one of the most chronic common lifestyle diseases that occur either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. The World Health Organization states that 347 million people worldwide have diabetes.

In Ayurveda, diabetes is known as Madhumeha or Prameha and there are around 20 different types that have been specified in Ayurvedic texts. Since it is a chronic disease, doctors usually prescribe their patients anti-diabetic medicines. And if their sugar levels are not controlled, they may be prescribed insulin.

Even though it is difficult to completely stop taking the medication, given the chronic nature of the disease, it may be wise to try some natural remedies and yoga to help control glucose levels naturally. Let’s look at how you can benefit from Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes in Mumbai.

How Ayurveda helps Diabetes?

There are several classical forms of Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes. This however, requires the patient to wholly accept the Ayurvedic herb formulations, and give patients and perseverance in order to receive a complete and effective treatment. Although lifestyle changes; such as ensuring a healthy diet and pursuing an active life; are imperative, classical Ayurvedic medicines are some of the time-tested remedies which may be taken under the supervision of professional Ayurveda physician at Ayushakti.

Ayurveda Treatment fundamentals for management of diabetes

Excess of Mucousy dosha like Kapha (mucous) & Pitta (heat) along with Aama (toxins) blocks insulin secretion and/or creates cellular resistance to blood sugar.  Hence, blockage of insulin secretion increases blood sugar level.  Cellular resistance inhibits absorption of blood sugar in to the cells.  Hence blood sugar increases.

  1.  First key is to stimulate metabolism through the herbs and diet so that insulin secrets naturally and cellular resistance is reduced.
  2. Improve pancreatic functions through certain deep acting herbs for long term.
  3. Follow specific diet and lifestyle which in turn help control blood sugar levels.

Steps to follow when undergoing Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes

There are some things that as a patient you must ensure you maintain in order for your treatment program to go smoothly. Here are some basic recommendations you must follow:

Avoid : Rice, Potato, fruits, wheat, deep fried foods, red meet & Sabudana.

Have more : Proteins like  Chickpea, Mung, lentils, Masoor, Mung daal, soya bean products, chana daal. Vegetables like spinach, leafy greens, Dudhi (bottle gourd), Turai, white pumpkin, Padwal (snake gourd), egg plant, cereals like millet, Ragi, corn, Kulit & Barley (Jav).  Occasionally can have chicken & fish.

  • Your proportion of food categories should be : 60% Vegetables, 30% protein and 10% carbs

Home Remedy:  1 tsp. Methi powder (fenugreek) with half glass of water  two times a day.

Life Style : Walking for ½ hour to 45 minutes daily.

Some of the Ayurvedic herbs for Diabetes

Mamejawa Extract (Enicostemma Littorale Blume) helps release of insulin thus glucose is reduced. Enocostemmma is proven for significant increase in the insulin level.

Asana extract (Pterocarpus Marsuppium) Improve pancreas functions and  balance blood sugar.

Bitter gourd seeds should be pounded and the powder is to be taken twice daily with warm water. The fresh juice extracted by grinding fresh bitter gourd, is an excellent cure. It works better when taken on an empty stomach.

Tender leaves of Neem and Bilva are to be taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, in order to reduce the intensity of your diabetic symptoms. Bilva is Hypoglycemic agent.

Fenugreek, also known as methi is another natural herb that has many health benefits. Fenugreek has the valuable property of reducing the rate at which sugar is absorbed from the stomach during the process of digestion; it also appears to be capable of stimulating the pancreatic cells to increase insulin production.

Rather than injecting insulin into your blood stream, Ayurveda treatment for diabetes strengthens your body and liver, making it capable of expelling excess blood sugar. You should always consult our Ayurvedic doctor to get special medication and dosage for your case.
