The term obese describes a person who's very overweight, with a lot of body fat.
If you consume high amounts of energy, particularly fat and sugars, but do not burn off the energy through exercise and physical activity, much of the surplus energy will be stored by the body as fat. Obesity does not happen overnight. It develops gradually over time, as a result of poor diet and lifestyle choices.
Some people claim there's no point trying to lose weight because "it runs in my family" or "it's in my genes". While there are some rare genetic conditions that can cause obesity, such as Prader-Willi syndrome, there's no reason why most people cannot lose weight.
Pathology to joints is called Sandhigata Vata in Ayurveda. Sandhi in Sanskrit means joint and Vata is the causative factor for pain in joints. The aggravation of Vata in Sandhi is therefore the basic pathology here. This can be associated with aggravation of other doshas also whereby symptoms like rising temperature and stiffness may be associated. The condition can also be due to the accumulation of Ama or toxins produced in the body due to failure of proper digestion. Aama can cause obstruction to the flow of Vata and hence cause its aggravation. In such cases, Ama should be broken down and eliminated from the body initially. The condition is then called Amavaatha.
The definition of health in Ayurveda also depicts the same meaning.
“समदोष समाग्निश्च समाधातु मलक्रिया ।
प्रसन्नात्मेन्द्रिय मन: स्वस्थेत्यभिधीयते ॥ “
(Susrutha Samhitha: Sutra Sthana: Chapter -15: Verse-41)
The balanced equilibrium between the Doshas and other factors along with a pleasant and healthy soul, sense organs and mind is said to be healthy.
The ultimate aim of Ayurveda is to protect the health of the healthy and to cure the diseased.
Gynecologic diseases in general are diseases that involved the female reproductive tract. These diseases include benign and malignant tumours, pregnancy-related diseases, infection, and endocrine diseases. Common gynaecological problems include Cervical Dysplasia, Menstrual Disorders, Pelvic Floor Prolapse, Pelvic Pain, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Uterine Fibroids, and Urinary Incontinence.
The science of Ayurveda deals with these issues in a systematic manner as evident from the classification of diseases available and the number of plant drugs or the combinations thereof available for treatment.
Stress is your body’s response to changes in your life. Because life involves constant change -ranging from everyday, routine changes like commuting from home to work to adapt to major life changes like marriage, divorce, or death of a loved one -there is no avoiding stress.
Just as stress is perceived differently by each of us, stress affects us all in ways that are unique to us. One person may experience headaches, while another may find stomach upset is a common reaction, and a third may experience any of a number of other symptoms.
We can help you manage your stress by Ayurvedic approach.
Children are prone to getting sick during the first few years of life as their bodies build immunity to infections. While it’s hard to stop your child from ever getting sick, small changes in the diet and lifestyle can bring a big change in the health of your child.
Children under 5 are especially vulnerable to infectious diseases like pneumonia, diarrhoea, and other bacterial and viral diseases. For older children, non-communicable diseases, injuries and conflict pose significant threats.
With demographic transition underway in India, the elderly population is projected to rise to 12% of the total population by 2025. The ever-increasing elderly population poses social and financial challenges and puts immense strain on the health system due to a marked shift toward chronic non-communicable diseases. Besides, social factors like fewer children in each family, increased employment opportunities for women, who were traditionally taking care of the old in India, rapid urbanization and rise of nuclear families call for more focus on geriatric issues, both medical and socio-economic.
Diet & Lifestyle Management
Often dieting is confused with weight loss which also leads to nutrition deficit. We provide a holistic approach that does not restrict food or compromise on nutrition. Lifestyle management becomes a way of living automatically when you adopt adding a variety of food on your plate which helps attain balance. Ayurveda talks about the diet and lifestyle extensively. Often these two are considered two basic tools of Ayurveda treatment, medicines are considered secondary.
Although most diseases affecting the skin originate in the layers of the skin, such abnormalities are also important factors in the diagnosis of a variety of internal diseases. There is some truth in the belief that the skin mirrors a person’s internal health. Often, the visibility and accessibility of skin make it the first organ of the body to show detectable signs of underlying disease. Abnormalities of the skin frequently suggest metabolic, malignant, and glandular diseases.
Some of the most common skin diseases include: Acne, Alopecia areata, Atopic dermatitis (eczema), Psoriasis, Raynaud’s phenomenon, Rosacea, Skin cancer, Vitiligo, etc.
Allergy & Asthma
Allergies are your body’s reaction to a normally harmless substance such as pollen, molds, animal dander, latex, certain foods and insect stings. Mild reactions include local symptoms (affecting a specific area of your body) such as a rash or hives, itchiness, watery/red eyes, hay fever and runny nose. Mild reactions do not spread to other parts of your body. A severe allergic reaction, known as anaphylaxis, is a rare, life-threatening emergency in which your body’s response to the allergen is sudden and affects the whole body.
Allergic asthma is a breathing condition where the airways you breathe through tighten when you inhale an allergen. This type of asthma is very common in both children and adults.
