AYURVEDA PROTECTS YOU FROM SWINE FLU

What is Swine Flu?

Swine flu, caused by the H1N1 or type A influenza virus, has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Swine flu affects the upper respiratory tract and its symptoms are similar to those caused by the Human Influenza Virus. There are fears that swine flu will become a major global pandemic in the winter months.
Influenza is quite common in pigs; the main route of transmission is through direct contact between infected and uninfected animals.

How is Swine Flu transmitted?

Swine influenza virus is common throughout pig populations worldwide. People with regular exposure to pigs are at increased risk of swine flu infection. This spreads through personal contacts in the form of droplets created while coughing or sneezing by a person infected with the flu. It is a frequent infection which rises every year with a life-threatening challenge.

Signs and Symptoms of Swine Flu: 
  • Sore throat
  • Headaches
  • Fever with chills
  • Aching limbs
  • Fatigue
  • Running nose
  • Lack of appetite
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Pneumonia and respiratory failure are signs of a more serious attack.
Treatment for Swine Flu:

  • Paracetamol for fever
  • Antivirus like Tamiflu for symptomatic relief
  • Antibiotics for severe infections
  • Vaccines can be taken but still there isn't any assurance of protection.

However, as modern medicines is not without side effects, it is always better to take precautions and prevent the disease from occurring.

Ayurvedic view of Swine Flu

Swine flu in Ayurveda can be called as Sannipataj Jvara which is basically triggered by the aggravation of the three Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) and loss of Ojas (immunity) in the body. Low Ojas is lack of immunity at the physical level and absence of mental strength at mental level. Hence Ayurveda strongly recommends the strengthening of the Ojas (immunity) to prevent diseases like swine flu from its attack.

Ayurveda promotes the concept that if one's immune system is strong, it has the capacity to withstand viruses. This branch of medicine promotes the intake of special herbs or decoctions, touting that they not only help increase one's immunity, but also help treat symptoms. 

Ayurvedic treatment for Swine Flu

Ayurveda, the 5000 year old medical science based on natural systems, has some excellent preventive and curative solutions to diseases such as swine flu. The most significant aspect of these measures is that they are entirely based on natural substances and, therefore, totally safe on the human body.

The Ayurvedic treatment of any flu is aimed at controlling the virus and preventing complications by boosting the body’s immunity. It helps in cleansing the body by eliminating toxins and clearing blockage in channels. Hence, Ayurveda drugs may be started as soon as possible.

  • Chandramrita Rasa
  • 64 Prahari Pippali
  • Suvarna Vasanta Malini Rasa
  • Shwasa Kuthara Rasa
  • Sanjeevani vati
  • Anand bhairav rasa
Herbs useful in Swine Flu

Besides the natural immunity-boosting options mentioned above, there are several other herbs and spices one can consume to raise one's immunity levels. However, before consuming any herb or trying out a natural remedy, make sure you consult an Ayurveda practitioner.
  • Tulasi (Basil)
  • Ardraka (Ginger)

  • Drink boiled warm water only.
  • Hot saline gargle should be done frequently.
  • Do fasting for 2 – 3 day if fever persists.
  • Have cow’s milk with turmeric or ginger tea.

  • Take 5 Tulasi (basil leaves) + 4 Maricha (whole black pepper beads) + 3 Lavanga (clove buds) + 1 teaspoonful of fresh Adrak (ginger) paste + 2 cups of water. Boil this entire mixture until the quantity of water is halved. Filter and add a teaspoonful of honey when warm. Take this decoction twice a day.
  • ½ to 1 teaspoonful of Sitopaladi Churna with 1 teaspoonful of honey and have it twice daily.
  • Have 1 tbsp of Chyawanprash with cow’s milk every morning to boost immunity.
  • Children should be given Suvarna prashana - Ayurveda vaccine for Swine flu and other infections.
  • Panchakarma detox therapies like Nasya, Vamana and Virechana are also very useful for all respiratory tract infections.
  • Home should be kept clean and fumigated daily with Neem leaves, Guggal, Sarjarasa and Devdaru for environmental purification.
  • Do hot saline gargle many times in a day.
  • Snuff 2-6 drops of mustard oil early in the morning.
  • Keep a mixture of powdered camphor + cardamom in a box and smell it every 2 - 3 hours. 
  • Avoid getting wet and sleeping into the dew.
  • Avoid places of crowd during endemic period of swine flu.
  • Make sure you get at least 7-8 hours of good sleep every night. This will boost your immune system and enhance the ojas in your body.
  • Drink 8 to 10 glasses of boiled water each day to flush accumulated ama (toxins) from your system.
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet to keep your body strong, nourished, and ready to fight infection. Stick with whole grains, colorful vegetables, and vitamin-rich fruits.
  • If you have constipation, then have light laxative like Triphala churna 3-6 gms or Isabgol 5-10 gms at bedtime.
  • Support your immune system by exercising moderately on a regular basis. It helps in increasing blood circulation and eliminating the blockage in body channels.
  • Consult your doctor if you have a cough and fever and follow their instructions. Make sure you take the prescribed medicines at the right time and in advised quantities.

AYURVEDA WAY OF LIFE FOR HEALTHY LIVING

Ayurveda, regarded as a Holistic manual of Life and Age, describes a lifestyle that’s in harmony with the nature.



#1: Rising Early in morning
According to Ayurveda, one should rise at brahma muhurta, a very early period in the morning. It comes at about 4:00 a.m. to 5 a. m. By so doing, you will gain greater freshness, strength, and inclination for work. Hence it is truly said “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”  

#2: Evacuation
The second important daily routine is to evacuate the bowels and bladder. Many people have a bad habit of going to the toilet only after tea or breakfast.  Evacuation is the first thing to do in the morning. Evacuation should not produce pain or strain.  It is necessary that the whole concentration of the mind not be diverted from evacuation. 

#3: Cleaning of the Teeth and Tongue
Ayurveda recommends herbal brushes made from trees branch for cleaning the teeth. These are bitter, pungent, and astringent in taste.  

The following herbal brushes are used for cleansing the teeth:


  • Nimba
  • Babool
  • Khadir
  • Karanja
  • Arka
  • Asana

  • Amalaki
  • Haritaki
  • Bibhitaki
  • Musta
  • Shati
  • Chandan
  • Sariva
  • Daruharidra
For queries or consultation, kindly email us on vishwacare.jaina@gmail.com
- Dr.Jaina Patwa,
These herbal cleansers remove the particles from the teeth and gums, lessens foul odour and treats tastelessness. They also strengthen the teeth and gums. After cleaning the teeth, the next routine is tongue scraping. Scraping cleans the tongue and removes a coating that is produced by Ama (toxins).

#4: Collyrium (Anjanam)
Collyrium (Anjanam) is applied in the eyes.  This collyrium application removes burning, itching, dirty secretions, and pain from the eyes.  Charaka says the vision of humans can become bright and clean if collyrium is used daily.



#5: Nasyam, Gandusha and Tamboola sevan
Nasyam means nasal administration of herbal oil to eliminate the toxins from upper half of the body. Gandusha means gargle with warm oils to soothe the throat and cleanse the teeth. Tambola sevan means chewing of fresh betel leaves to fire up the digestive system.


#6: Herbal Smoking
Dhumra Panam or Ayurvedic smoking cigarettes are prepared by a specific method and don’t contain tobacco or any addicting drugs.  They are prepared from herbal leaves like Aguru (Aquilaria agallocha), Ela (cardamom), Aswatha (Ficus religiosa), Nyagrodha (Ficus Bengalensis), Sarjassa (Resin) Flava (yellow resin), Kamala (lotus), etc. which are alleviators of kapha and Vata. It is done to strengthen the upper half of the body and prevent their ailments.

#7: Abhyangam and Karna purana
Abhyangam means body massage with herbal oils. This process is very important in the daily routine. The massage produces strength in the body and improves performance in muscular activities. It delays the aging process, relieves fatigue, relieves Vata, improves vision, produces corpulence, sound sleep and softness and strength in the skin.  Everyone should massage warm oil on the body for at least ten to fifteen minutes.  Head, face, shoulder, neck, back, flanks, chest, hands, and legs, hips and all parts should be properly massaged.  If there is insufficient time to    complete a full-body massage, at least the head, ears, and soles of feet should never be missed.

Karna purana means oiling the ears with herbal oils. It is done to prevent deafness, ear diseases, stiffness in back and jaw.

#8: Physical Exercises
It is defined as the movement of the physical organs of the body by which the body gets stretched.  The classics of Ayurveda recommend daily physical exercise.  Vagbhata says that proper exercise produces lightness in the body, strength for work, increased gastric fire, and reduced fat.  All parts become well developed and in good form.

Physical exercise should be done after oil massage so that the oil applied on the body gets absorbed through the pores of the skin and enters into the tissue level. Ayurveda recommends doing exercises only up to the point of half your capacity. Excessive exercise should not be done in any condition.
 

#9: Bath
Everyone should take a bath after the physical exercises with lukewarm water. Herbal powders should be used instead of soaps for detoxify the skin.

Herbs for bathing:
Scrubbing daily with these herbs makes skin healthy and lustrous. It also helps to eradicate the unnecessary fats of the body.
One should not have bath after meals.

#10: Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and Religious Act
Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation is the most direct means of experiencing the unified field which leads to self-realization and ultimately all happiness in life. 

Religious or virtuous acts are described to make us follow the laws of nature. If we violate natural laws, we experience the consequence and fall sick.  If we follow them we are always healthy. Everyone should structure his morning and evening time to allow at least 20 to 40 minutes for self-realization, to obtain the knowledge of the unified field, which is the home of all the laws of nature.  This is the key real health and all happiness.  

#11: Sattvic Meals
Ayurveda has recommended only two meals lunch and dinner. But those who are habituated to breakfast may take a light one after meditation.

Lunch time is spoken of in Ayurveda as falling between 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM.  Those who take breakfast in the morning can take lunch between 1 PM to 2 PM. There should be at least 6 hours gap between two meals. Meals should be taken when the previous meal is completely digested.  Intake of food should always be less than required.  The meal should be made completely Sattvic by following the dietary principles of Ayurveda.  

Evening meals should be taken between 6:30 and 8:30 PM. Dinner should be always lighter than lunch as the circulation and digestion are a little dull.  

You should ideally go for an evening walk after dinner and then can relax with family or read and rest.

#12: Early to Bed
It is desirable to go bed early in the evening and sleep soundly until early morning.  The latest you should retire is by 10:00 pm so that you can complete about 6 to 8 hours sleep before rising at Brahma Muhurta.
If there is any problem regarding sleep, you can rub warm cow’s ghee (Indian butter) on the soles of the feet and then sponge them with cold water before going to bed.  This promotes natural deep sleep.

AYURVEDA HELPS IN OPTIC ATROPHY


Optic atrophy
Optic Atrophy is the result of degeneration or damage to the optic nerve. The optic nerve transports visual information from the eye, to an area of the brain where it is processed.

Symptoms of Optic atrophy
  • Blurred vision
  • Change in the optic disc
  • Dimming of vision
  • Reduction of the field of vision
  • Contrast sensitivity can be affected.
  • Poor constriction of the pupil in light
  • Decreased brightness in one eye relative to the other
 Causes of Optic atrophy
  • Inherited
  • Brain injury
  • Glaucoma
  • Optic neuritis
  • Toxic or nutritional optic neuropathy
  • Vascular disorders
 Risk factors of Optic atrophy
  • Diseases of the brain
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Brain tumor
  • Stroke
  • Radiation
Diagnosis of Optic atrophy
Optic nerve atrophy can be diagnosed on complete examination of the eyes. It may require a complete physical examination and specific tests. Molecular genetic testing is available to confirm the diagnosis of dominant optic atrophy. ECG should be done to diagnose occult cardiac conduction defects.

Precautions and Prevention of Optic atrophy
Facial injuries can be prevented by standard safety precautions:
Use seat belt when traveling
Avoid alcohol consumption

Prognosis of Optic atrophy
Optic atrophy is believed to be an end-stage disease and therefore, it is important to initiate treatment at the earliest possible in order to limit the damage to the optic nerve.

Treatment of Optic atrophy
There is currently no treatment for optic atrophy in the modern system of medicine.

Ayurveda treatment for Optic atrophy
Ayurvedic herbal treatment can be successfully utilized to treat optic atrophy. Ayurveda for Optic atrophy is aimed at preserving vision, slowing down or reversing the degeneration in the retina and optic nerve and treating the cause, if known. While this is a slow process, improvement for the patient is definite, with most affected individuals reporting improvement within three to six months.  Significant improvement of vision in individuals affected with optic atrophy is reported within six to nine months of regular treatment.

Ayurvedic medicines for Optic atrophy
  • Tapyadi loha
  • Punarnavadi mandur
  • Saptamrit loha
  • Panch tikta ghrita guggul
  • Punarnavadi guggul
  • Maha Triphala ghrita
  • Vat Gajankush rasa
  • Mahavatavidhwans rasa
  • Rakta Pachaka vati
  • Triphala churna
  • Vidaryadi kashayam

Panchakarma therapies for Optic atrophy

Akshi tharpanam
This is a cleaning process of the eyes, which gives a cooling effect, preventing eye diseases and strengthening the optic nerve. It is used for patients with risk of complete loss of eye vision with special herbal clarified butter (ghee) like Maha Triphala ghritam, Jeevanthyadi ghritam, Anantha ghritam, etc. The entire procedure is repeated at specific intervals and is believed to help in preserving vision in the eyes, strengthening and promoting regeneration of the optic nerve.

Raktamokshanam
It is believed to help in optic atrophy by blood-letting from the skin around the eyes with the application of leeches.

Siro vasthy
In Shirobasti process, a long leather cap, open at the top, is fitted around the patient's head. Through the top opening, warm herbal medicated oils are poured on to the head. The oil is retained for a specific period. This procedure is highly useful in cases of Optic atrophy.

Nethra dhara
This process includes washing of the eyes with freshly prepared medicated decoctions like Darvyadi ksheera kashayam for strengthening the optic nerve.

Sirodhara
In this treatment special medicated oil is poured on the forehead and head continuously. The medicated oil is customized according to the patient’s ailment. Sirodhara with oils like Bhujangapathra thailam, Ashwagandha thailam, etc. helps to tune up the brain and benefits the optic nerve.

Diet chart for Optic atrophy
  • Eat fruits such as oranges, apples, grapes, peaches, plums, cherries
  • Eat green vegetables like lettuce, cabbage, spinach and turnip tops
  • Eat root vegetables like potatoes, turnips, carrot, onions, and beetroots
  • Eat nuts, dried fruits, and dairy products
 Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus provide significant improvement in the management of people affected with optic atrophy.  Benefits from this therapy need to be well documented and universally publicized, so that maximum number of affected people at the global level can take advantage of this system of medicine.
