WHAT IS THIS TERM HEMORRHOIDS MEAN?

Hemorrhoids are very common. These result from increased pressure on the anus. The pressure causes the normal anal veins and tissue to swell in the lower rectum. The rectum is the last part of the large intestine leading to the anus. The anus is the opening at the end of the digestive tract where bowel contents leave the body.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF HEMORRHOIDS

Ayurvedic treatment for Hyperthyroidism

hyperthyroidism

Some people wake up like million bucks. And me?? I woke up like insufficient funds.

This worst feeling occurs when body is giving up energy and it affects physically and emotionally. Disorders cause great illness in the system. Some of the diseases affect physically and emotionally also as that malfunction not only affect internally but also shows problems physically and mentally sometimes. Hyperthyroidism is one of the diseases that shows this kind of combined effect.

WHAT IS IN THIS DISEASE?

Hyperthyroidism is a condition of the thyroid. The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the front of your neck. During development, the thyroid is present behind the tongue and migrate to the front of neck before birth.

Hormones produce by the thyroid gland

The two most important hormones produced by gland are T3 (tri-iodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Thyroid gland also produces calcitonin, which helps control blood calcium levels.

The thyroid's hormones T3 and T4 regulate vital body functions like:-

  • Breathing
  • Heart rate
  • Central and peripheral nervous systems
  • Body weight
  • Muscle strength
  • Menstrual cycles
  • Cholesterol levels and much more!

Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid makes too much T4, T3, or both.

HOW YOUR THYROID WORKS?

Think your thyroid gland is a car engine that sets the pace at which your body operates. An engine produces the required amount of energy for a car to move at a certain speed. As a car cannot produce energy without gas, your thyroid needs fuel to produce thyroid hormone. This fuel is iodine. It comes from our diet and in iodized table salt, seafood, bread and milk. Gland uses this iodine to make thyroid hormone: thyroxine, also called T4 as it contains four iodine atoms and trii-odothyronine or T3 that contains three iodine atoms.

CAUSES OF HYPERTHYROIDISM

The thyroid gland hormones T4 and T3 -play vital role in the functioning of body. If the levels of T4 and T3 are too high then hyperthyroidism occurs.

The most common cause of hyperthyroidism includes:-

  • The autoimmune disorder Graves’ disease- in this disease your immune system creates antibodies that cause the thyroid to grow and make more thyroid hormone than your body needs. The antibodies which are responsible for this are known as thyroid-stimulating immunoglobulins (TSIs).  
  • Another reason is a toxic nodular or multinodular goiter- these are lumps or nodules in the thyroid gland that cause the thyroid to produce excessive amounts of thyroid hormones.
  • Inflammation of the thyroid gland known as thyroiditis that occurs either due to a virus or malfunction in immune system.
  • Furthermore, people who take too much iodine (either from foods or supplements) or medications containing iodine may produce high levels.
  • Some women may also develop hyperthyroidism during pregnancy or in the first year after giving birth.

SYMPTOMS THAT SHOW THE CONDITION OF HYPERTHYROIDISM

Hyperthyroidism can mimic other health problems. It can cause variety of signs and symptoms as:-

  • Sudden weight loss, even when your appetite is good.
  • Rapid heartbeat includes more than 100 beats a minute
  • Increased appetite
  • Nervousness and anxiety
  • Changes in menstrual patterns
  • Increased sensitivity to heat
  • An enlarged thyroid gland that occurs due to swelling at the base of your neck
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty in sleeping

Graves ophthalmopathy

A kind of uncommon problem Graves ophthalmopathy may affect your eyes, especially if you smoke. Signs include:

  • Protruding eyeballs
  • Red or swollen eyes
  • Discomfort in one or both eyes
  • Light sensitivity

TIME FOR CONSULTATION

If there is unusual weight loss, rapid heartbeat and swelling at the base of your neck or other symptoms associated with hyperthyroidism, consult your doctor.

DIAGNOSIS

Hyperthyroidism is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical examination, radio iodine uptake test, thyroid scan and blood tests to measure levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroid hormones T3 and T4.these can be controlled by taking anti-thyroid medication or surgery.

HYPERTHYROIDISM AND AYURVEDA

Ayurveda also has very promising and herbal treatment for hyperthyroidism. To understand the link between disease control and ayurvedic principles, we have to understand what is Ayurveda.

AYURVEDA

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian system of natural and holistic medicine. Ayurveda word means "the science of life".

Ayurveda provides us with the knowledge of how to prevent disease and how we can eliminate its root cause.

According to Ayurveda, each person is influenced by certain elements more than others, because of their natural constitution.

Ayurveda categorizes the different constitutions into three different doshas:

  • Vata dosha, defines the air and space elements
  • Pitta dosha, defines the fire element
  • Kapha dosha, defines the earth and water elements

The dosha is not just affecting shape of one's body but also food preferences, digestion and the temperament of one's mind and emotions. As the earth element in people with Kapha dosha is for slower digestion, their strong memory, and their emotional steadiness. Most people's nature is made up of a combination of two doshas like people who are "Pitta Kapha" will have the tendencies of both Pitta dosha and Kapha dosha, with Pitta dominating. So understanding the qualities of these elements, we can keep ourselves in a balanced way.

Ayurvedic medication for hyperthyroidism concentrate to regulate its symptoms and make sure to cure the basic cause of hyperthyroidism.

Keratoconus is a genetic disorder which increases with time and it is an uncommon disorder which affects the cornea and starts thinning it. This thinning might result in blurred vision, astigmatism and light sensitivity. The cornea takes the shape of a cone in this disorder. The ability to see is when light enters through the cornea and it refracts the rays of light to form a clear image but in Keratoconus, the appearance of cornea is modified which distorts the ability to see.

Ayurvedic Treatment for NHL Cancer

Felling enthusiasm, prosperity, activeness, positivity and wealth means you are quite fit and fine. Under the roof of this body sheath, many cells, tissues, vessels and organs associate to make body workable. Aberrant growth in any part of this body and body parts leads to a serious illness that is spreading like a wildfire these days. This illness is known with a prevailing name – cancer. This occurs when there is abnormal growth of cells in the body. These cells just get split and grow more and more. This overgrowth results in formation of lumps (tumor), which further spread to the surrounding tissues and cause cancer. Here we discuss one type of cancer that can originate and affects various parts of the human body. This is called as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) cancer.

What Is NHL Cancer?

A cancer that originates in the lymphatic system. It is a system consist of various tissues and vessels that consists a fluid - lymph. This is an integral part of immune system of the body. The fluid lymph contains numerous white blood cells that help to combat illness. These carry waste, harmful things (bacteria, virus, abnormal cells and toxins) from body parts and destroy them. These vessels carry these waste to the blood and then expels out of the body.

So any malfunctioning in this system causes in production of abnormal growth of white blood cells present in the lymph. These cells keep on dividing, start collaborating in vessels and swell the vessels. This cause problem in organ functioning. These are found in organs like neck, tonsils, arms, chest, thymus, abdomen, and spleen.

What Are The Classes Of Nhl Cancer?

Two immune cells are there which are present in major volume in lymph. These are B- cells (generate antibodies to treat infections) and T-cells (kill foreign non-appropriate substances). This cancer is mainly due to B-cells.

The main classified cancer types originate due to B-cells and these are

  1. Diffuse large B cell lymphoma - it causes up to 40% of NHL cancer. It is due to abnormal growth of B cells. In this condition, first sign is swollen mass in neck, stomach or groin, fever and weight loss.
  2. Follicular lymphoma - B cells gathering in lymph nodes. It shows symptoms of swelling, fever, sweat and fever. In its later stage, other problems like anemia, leukopenia, bone marrow dysfunction and more are seen.

Other types of NHL cancer are

  • Burkitt lymphoma
  • Thyroid lymphoma
  • T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma
  • CNS lymphoma
  • HIV-related lymphoma etc.

Risk Factors For NHL Cancer

  • Immune system suppressing medications
  • Weak immunity
  • Bacterial and viral infections – H. pylori, HIV, Epstein-Barr virus and HCV.

Symptoms of NHL cancer

  • Swollen lymph nodes in neck, armpit or groin.
  • Chest pain
  • Abdominal pain or swelling
  • Breathlessness

What Test Can Diagnose Nhl Cancer?

  • Through physical examination
  • Blood tests like complete blood count to check the white blood cell count and lactate dehydrogenase test.

Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Asherman’s Syndrome

Are you suffering from some kind of menstrual or pregnancy problems. Are you unable to give birth to a child? A proper functioning of reproductive system is an integral part of one's female life and these problems make a female suffer from many emotional problems. These abnormalities and ailments can be due to various reasons and diseases. One of the important reason is uterus scarring. This condition is famous with the name of asherman's syndrome. Many of us don't know about this term but it can be the very important factor behind some female reproductive problems like infertility.

So what is this asherman's syndrome?

This is known as a condition in which the walls of uterus start adhering to one another that is caused by uterine inflammation. Due to this adhesion, there is development of scar tissues in the uterus.

This adhesion damage can be of different types:

  • It can affect the cervix
  • Uterine lining
  • Opening of fallopian tubes and
  • The deep layers of uterus
  • This scar tissue can be of thin or thick layers.

Why this tissue scarring happen?

This scarring of uterus tissue is generally caused by surgery or due to an infection.

The kinds of surgery that can create the problem of asherman's syndrome are:

1. Dilation and curettage: this is a procedure in which uterus lining gets scrapped out.

  • This surgery is done under conditions like to do abortion, to treat abnormal vaginal bleeding, incomplete miscarriage and to detect the uterus cancer.
  • This increases the chances of tissue scarring as the hormone progesterone suppresses the repair mechanism of endometrium wall, these tissue falls during menses. Due to abrupt mechanism tissue growth slowsdown and the power of its regeneration weakens.

2. Cesarean section: During this process, an incision is made inside the abdomen and uterus to take out the baby. This may cause the scarring of endometrium lining.

3. Fibroid tumors in the uterus

Infections Involves

  • First infection is pelvis infection that happen after a delivery, abortion or miscarriage.
  • The infection of tuberculosis of pelvis.
  • Pelvic irradiation for the treatment of pelvic cancer.

What problems you face after suffering from asherman's syndrome?

  • Menstrual problems and irregularity like absence of menses (amenorrhea) or very light flow during the menses (hypomenorrhea).
  • Miscarriage
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic pain, discomfort and cramps

This problem should be treated with in time as in serious cases, women unable to conceive naturally and they can't use the fertility treatments like IUI or IVF, due to extensive damage of uterus lining.

What tests can diagnose the condition of asherman's syndrome?

The pelvic examination can't recognize this problem. Tests that can diagnose this scar tissues are:

  • Hysterosalpinogogram: a kind of X-ray of the uterine cavity.
  • Hysteroscopy: to see inner uterus via camera that is inserted through the cervix.
  • Transvaginal ultrasound examination: in his an ultrasound probe place inside the vagina to examine organs like uterus, ovaries and cervix.

To treat the problem of asherman's syndrome, natural, herbal ayurvedic methodology is very helpful, in means of recovery, proper positive cure without side effects.

To know how and what kinds of herbal ingredients show effect on asherman's syndrome, we have some knowledge about the treatment mode, Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is an ancient system of healing the ailments in India. This healing system compiles all the factors of the life i.e. physical, mental and spiritual. Ayurveda try to heal the problem by stabilizing all these factors. The word Ayurveda took from Sanskrit which itself reflects the science of life. The word ayur means life and Veda means science.

This medicinal process is based on three natural constituents or Doshas that hold all the elements of life and control the every single process and movement of the body.

These doshas are :

  • Vata: it consists air and space element. This is known to control the circulation, respiration, nervous and elimination processes.
  • Kapha: it consists water and earth elements. This is known to control the growth and immune system of the body.
  • Pitta: it is known to consist of fire and water elements. This helps to maintain the metabolism process.

What is the ayurvedic view point of asherman's syndrome?

This syndrome happens due to disturbance in all kinds of doshas.

The most influencing is vata sub type that is apana vata, which is helpful to remove waste and unwanted materials out of the body. Its destruction is due to many reasons but the main one is ama, a kind of toxin produced from undigested foods. This ama can be associated with both pitta or kapha doshas and blocks the apana's preferred course. Disturbed vata can cause the pains during menses, pitta involves to cause inflammation. As condition goes on, more inflammation is there that causes scars and then adhesions, which leads to asherman's syndrome.

There is herbal treatment in the nature which can heal the problem of uterine tissue scarring or can say asherman's syndrome.
