KEEP YOUR HEART HAPPY & HEALTHY WITH AYURVEDA

Hello everyone! As today is the World Heart Day, we have some useful information for all kind of heart problems. Kindly go through the blog and let us know if you have any sort of queries.
 
What is cardiovascular (heart) disease?
The heart is like any other muscle in body. It needs an adequate blood supply to provide oxygen to allow the muscle to contract and pump. Not only does the heart pump blood to the rest of the body, it also pumps blood to itself via the coronary arteries. So, when there is any problem in the heart or its blood vessels, it leads to the cardiovascular disease.

Common heart diseases:
  • Atherosclerosis - a condition that develops when a substance called plaque builds up in the walls of the arteries
  • Heart attack - when the blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked by a blood clot
  • Ischemic stroke - when a blood vessel that feeds the brain gets blocked, usually from a blood clot
  • Hemorrhagic stroke - when a blood vessel within the brain bursts, most likely cause is uncontrolled hypertension
  • Heart failure - also known as congestive heart failure, means the heart isn't pumping blood as well as it should
  • Arrhythmia - an abnormal rhythm of the heart - too slow, fast or irregular

Color therapy:
Green is the color of our heart chakra. So, in order to integrate the powers of green color for happy & healthy heart, you can include the following things in your routine:
  • Include a green colored clothing item or accessory in your attire regularly.
  • Keep a green colored piece of crystal or glass in your workplace, or in your home.
  • Use a green colored night-dress so that you may benefit from the energies while you sleep.
  • Use green colored bulb or night-lamp. If you don’t find a green colored bulb, you can use a green colored film to wrap around a regular white bulb.
  • Include green color in your home furnishing.
  • Visualize the green color in your head during the day.
Indian music therapy:

The ragas Bhairav and Durga have a power of Divine bliss and protection. Both help activate the Anahat (heart) chakra. When the Kundalini touches the heart chakra, Raga Bhairav activates spirituality in the person. Raga Durga boosts self-confidence and helps develop the quality of the air element.


Acupressure:
The following acupressure points are important for cardiovascular health:
  • Ht 7 (Spirit Gate) – Ht 7 is the depression point on the inner wrist. Stimulating this point by applying steady pressure of the thumb helps in treating heart problems like chest pain, irregular heartbeat and palpitations.
  • Pc 6 (Inner Gate) - Pc 6 is located on the palm side of your wrist, two thumb widths above the wrist crease in the center of the arm. Pressing this point helps strengthen the heart and also relieves the pain or discomfort of the chest. Pc 6 opens the chest and is therefore good for treating chest or cardiac problems. It acts on the emotions by promoting the free flow of Qi in the body, promoting relaxation, and calming the heart and mind. So it helps to treat stress related problems.

Diet:
Simple diet chart for a healthy heart-
  • Eat limited food on regular intervals
  • Have vegetables and fruits everyday
  • Select whole grain products like whole wheat flour instead of refined flour
  • Limit unhealthy fats like butter, cream, margarine, bacon fat, etc and have healthy fats like fresh cow’s ghee, vegetable oil, olive oil, nuts, seeds, etc.
  • Consume healthy protein diet like beans, peas, lentils, flaxseed, walnuts, soybeans, canola oil, etc.
  • Reduce the sodium in the food by adding rock salt in your food instead of the table salt. Also avoid the tinned, artificially colored or preserved products
  • Avoid the foods which are high in calories or low in nutrition, including foods like soft drinks and candy that contain a lot of sugar
  • Limit the amount of alcohol you drink

Lifestyle:
  • Avoid excess sitting for long duration
  • Exercise regularly
  • Regularly walk barefoot to ground with the earth
  • Manage your stress level
  • Do not smoke cigarettes
  • Have a good sleep every night
  • Get regular check-ups done

I hope this blog helps you to make healthy choices with a positive attitude from today itself, as any small change will help to reduce the risk of your heart disease. Remember little changes go a long way, so keep moving and never give up. Have a happy and healthy life ahead.

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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
