WHAT IS RETROPERITONEAL FIBROSIS?

Retroperitoneal fibrosis is also called as Ormond's disease. This condition is characterized when excess fibrous tissue develops in retroperitoneal area. This area is the space behind stomach and intestine. This excess growth of excess connective tissue causes the formation of mass. This excess growth results in the blockage and compression of ureters. Basically ureters are the tubes that carry urine from kidney to bladder.

Due to the blockage urine gets back into ureters that results in the formation of harmful materials which can cause the kidney damage.

  4. Coconut water is ok for BP 
  5. Water melon is ok for BP 
  6. Pomegranate and Bananas are ok for BP.  Green leafy vegetables and other greens are good for BP. Rich in magnesium, rich in calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, manganese, chromium and other anti-oxidants.
  7. Garlic is a disaster for BP. It's ushana, tikshana.. It’s not give to BP patients. They can get stroke. It's very hot in properties. Many studies say it has sulphur, that's why it lowers down BP, but it has many other compounds which are heating for the body and can lead to high BP.

  9. Arjun Tea -  Arjuna is cooling ( Sheet Virya) and good to reduce BP as well as cholesterol. Being Astringent, it also cleanses the arteries. So it's excellent for BP and cholesterol. 
  10. Walking is recommended for BP. As Walking leads to prespiration and sweating. That leads to loss of Salt ( Sodium ) from the body. It leads to decrease in BP.

Hard arteries lead to high BP. It's like hardened garden rubber pipe can't adjust itself to more water pressure and gives up. Similarly hardened arteries give up when the pressure is high, that leads to leakage and stroke. Diabetes makes the arteries more friable ( fragile ) leading to their rupture and hemorrhages.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Spinal AVM (Spinal Arteriovenous Malformations)

An impaired spinal cord means interrupted neural responses and disabled sensations in the parts of your body. Brave are those who are fighting with spinal cord disorders. Your body and brain can't communicate without spinal cord. Bottom line of this article is Spinal arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Here we will discuss all the aspects of this disease in detail along with treatment part. Ayurvedic treatment for Spinal AVM is an eminent approach by many people these days because Ayurveda is safest approach to overcome the sickness.

HOW CAN AYURVEDIC TREATMENT HELP TO TREAT THE SPINAL AVM?

According to Ayurveda, cause of Spinal AVM is mainly due to imbalance of vata doshas with the involvement of pitta and kapha doshas. Hence Ayurvedic treatment is based on to clear the blockage in the blood channels and improve the blood supply to affected area.

SPINAL AVM (Spinal Arteriovenous Malformations)

Spinal arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an abnormal knot of blood vessels in spinal cord that have a direct connection between the arterial system and the venous system without intervening capillaries. If it is left untreated, spinal AVM may lead to the permanent damage to spinal cord.

Normally oxygen-rich blood enters into spinal cord through arteries, which branch into smaller blood vessels (capillaries). Spinal cord utilizes the oxygen from the blood in capillaries and this oxygen-depleted blood then passes into veins that carry the blood from spinal cord to heart and lungs. Where as in a spinal AVM, blood passes directly from your arteries to your veins, bypassing capillaries.

This interruption in blood flow results in the deterioration or death of the cells in spinal tissues. In Spinal AVM, arteries and veins can rupture which results in bleeding in the spinal cord (hemorrhage). At times, AVM enlarges and compresses the spinal cord. Specific cause of this disease is still unknown.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH DOCTOR IF YOU EXPERIENCE ANY OF BELOW GIVEN SYMPTOMS

Symptoms of AVM may vary according to severity and location of AVM. Symptoms usually appear at the age of 20 and approximately almost 20 % of people diagnosed with spinal AVM are under the age of 16.

  • Difficulty with walking or climbing stairs
  • Weakness on one or both sides of your body
  • Numbness, tingling or sudden pain in your legs

With the progression of disease, additional symptoms are:

  • Difficulty urinating or moving your bowels
  • Lack of feeling in the legs
  • Lower back pain
  • Stiff neck

But in Klinefelter syndrome, two or more X chromosomes are present along with one Y chromosome.  Y chromosome contains the genetic material which determines the sex of a child and related growth. Whereas extra X chromosome present in Klinefelter syndrome causes abnormal development of the testicles that results in insufficient production of testosterone.

But sometimes one or both of the testicles may not be descended at birth. This condition often improves itself within the first few years of life without any treatment. If this problem don’t get resolve itself in the early childhood, it may lead to malfunction of the testicles and reduced production of testosterone.

Acute Tubular Necrosis Treatment in Ayurveda

acute tubular necrosis, ayurvedic treatment

Acute tubular necrosis is disorder of kidney, characterized by impairment in the tubule cells of the kidneys, which ultimately leads to acute kidney failure. It is a common diagnosis in acute renal failure. ATN is one of the most common reasons of kidney failure in hospitalized patients.

It may affect person of any age, but it more commonly develops in older individuals due to an augmented prevalence of associated medical conditions.

Both males and females are affected.

AYURVEDIC VIEW

As per Ayurveda explanation this disease happens as a result of obstruction in tiny body channels named as srotas. The body channels are involved in this case, known as mutravaha srotas, carrying urine and are responsible for flow of liquid in and out of the kidneys. In case there is obstructions in the incoming srotas, the kidneys are deprived of fluids and shrinkage happens and on other way, if outgoing channels are jammed, swelling occurs.

CAUSES OF ACUTE TUBULAR NECROSIS

Acute tubular necrosis (ATN) usually happens due to lack of blood supply and oxygen to the kidney tissues (ischemia of the kidneys) or it could be result of damage to kidney cells caused due to poison or harmful substance.

A heart attack, stroke, and diabetes from long time could be the reason of reduction in blood flow to the kidneys bringing about cell death and ATN.

Some chemicals or medications like antibiotics or anesthetics, and radiology dyes may lead to ATN if your body reacts negatively to them.

The internal structures of the kidney, specifically the tissues of the kidney tubule, get injured or destroyed. ATN is one of the utmost common structural changes that lead to acute renal failure.

RISKS FACTORS FOR ATN INCLUDE

  • Blood transfusion reaction
  • Injury or trauma leading to muscles damage.
  • Low blood pressure (hypotension) lasting for more than 30 minutes
  • Recent major surgery
  • Severe infection leading to septic shock.

SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS

Real Story of a Breast Cancer Survivor

DIVNA SHIPOVIKJ DESCRIBES AN INTEGRATIVE MODEL FOR TREATING CANCER THAT COMBINES ALLOPATHIC AND AYURVEDIC TREATMENTS.

I began my long journey of educating myself about Ayurveda, the philosophy behind it, the herbs, the natural remedies, the doshas.

My name is Divna. Breast cancer survivor. Ayurveda believer and enthusiast. Starting a new life. Here is my story: why I decided to redefine and change my life.

30 years of my professional life I passionately devoted to education. I walked my professional path enthusiastically from the classroom, through ministerial offices, to fieldwork, implementing reforms in the education system. I considered myself privileged for getting a chance to make a significant impact and personal contribution to education.

And then a sudden personal blow. I was diagnosed with breast cancer. A big tumor with a few metastases. I was devastated. Mastectomy and lymph nodes removed. And that was the easy part. Chemotherapy was the real challenge. Couldn't eat, was sick all the time, felt dizzy and very weak, lost hair, and abrupt physical changes of the skin and nails. I felt miserable.

From a fellow patient I heard of Ayurveda for the first time in my life. I thought it was just another unrealistic miracle story. After my fourth chemo I felt so bad that I decided to do something. I went to see an ayurvedic doctor for consultations. He advised me about diet. Gave me a list of foods I should avoid. Prescribed me several ayurvedic herbal supplements. It seemed too easy to be true. I asked about the treatment I was already going through. He told me that I should continue with it, and add the ayurvedic therapy to it. That seemed reasonable. I thought, "I can do these changes to my diet. Herbs cannot harm me, and maybe they can help me heal sooner." So, I decided to give it a try.

Went for another consultation to my ayurvedic doctor. This time I had some questions about the herbs, the composition of the ayurvedic products that he prescribed, about Ayurveda and how to change my lifestyle. I left happy with the answers and advice he gave me.

I continued with prescribed ayurvedic remedies and got much, much better. My oncologist was surprised by the speed of my recovery and with my check up results that all came out normal. I knew that I had made the right choice for my health.

My third visit to my ayurvedic doctor was to discuss the diet and the changes in the lifestyle in more detail. I had questions about the company producing these products and the man behind the company.

I began my long journey of educating myself about Ayurveda, the philosophy behind it, the herbs, the natural remedies, the doshas. I was eagerly reading everything available. I met in person the man behind Planet Ayurveda, Dr Vikram Chauhan. Spoke with many patients using ayurvedic remedies. Spoke with ayurvedic practitioners about their experience with herbal remedies.

A few years after I heard of Ayurveda for the first time in my life, I joined the Planet Ayurveda team in its holistic approach to curing and healing people. I share the information about ayurvedic products and their benefits for people suffering from different health concerns.

I am very enthusiastic as I know first hand how effective the Ayurvedic holistic approach to health and wellbeing is.

This story is also published in many magazines like; Spirit of Change, Heartfulness and other.

What is the meaning of Half Moon, Ridges and White Marks on the Nails?

Your nails are like Jewels- Don't use them like tools. Nails are very helpful describing the health of a person. Diet of a person plays an important part in the process of nail formation. Consumption of fruits, vegetables to fulfil the basic requirement of vitamins, minerals and enzymes will keep you healthy and your nails will look even, glossy and lustrous.

LETS KNOW ABOUT THE VARIOUS SHAPES AND MARKS ON THE NAILS

HALF MOON ON NAILS

Half Moon on Nails

The half-moon formed on the nails is known as the lunula or lunulae is the highly sensitive area of the nail which shouldn't be damaged. It is an extremely important part of the structure of the nail. It looks white because it's the fifth basal layer of the epidermis and it hides the blood vessels beneath it. Lunula is most visible on the thumb but in some people it is not visible at all. A lunula can help in revealing some very important information about a person's health.

  • Lack of lunula – Anemia, Malnutrition
  • Paler bluish – Diabetes
  • Reddish smudges – Cardiovascular disorders
  • Small Lunula- Indigestion due to slow metabolism or excessive toxins
  • There should be a total of 8 to 10 lunulas on both hands as that indicates good health.
  • It should cover 1/5th of the area of the fingernail.
  • It should be ivory in color, the whiter the better. The color of the lunula indicates the strength of the person.
  • The normal fingernail should be reddish, soft, tough, even and lustrous.
  • Lunula or half-moon tells the disease of a person by either changing color or disappearing crescent. Once the person regains his health, lunula will slowly reappear.
  • The lesser the lunulas, the lower energy and immunity you’ll have.
  • If the lunulas are present just on the thumbs then that indicates insufficient energy and the ailment is about to occur.

RIDGES ON NAILS

Ridges on Nails

Ridges are of various types :-

  • Vertical ridges
  • Marks
  • Discoloration
  • Pits and grooves which run from side to side known as beau’s lines. Vertical ridges are harmless.
  • They can be an indication of a nail injury or a health issue.
  • These ridges feel and look like raised lines and run from the cuticle at the base of the nail to the tip. Ridges are not a sign of any disorder or injury and are usually signs of aging.
  • If ridges are accompanied by brittle nails, jagged edges or chipping, you might be suffering from a condition known as Onyhorrhexis which is basically brittle nails. This may be linked to a skin disorder, Lichen planus which is a non-infectious skin rash. Apart from that, there are other disorders which might cause ridges like; Anemia or an underactive thyroid gland.
  • Horizontal ridges are signs of health issues.

WHITE SPOTS ON NAILS

White spots on nails
  • The white spots on the nails are not caused only by Calcium deficiency.
  • These white marks on the nails are known as leukonychia and is a very common condition.
  • These white marks also occur when you hit the base or matrix of your nails. It takes around 8 months for a nail to completely grow. When you see these spots on the tip of your nail(s), that means that the injury had occurred on your nails about 4 – 5 months ago.
  • These marks can be a sign of allergic reaction to nail products.
  • These spots are temporary and grow out gradually.
  • But, at times the change in the appearance of your nails might indicate an underlying disease. Nails that turn totally white, for example, can indicate liver disease, but by the time this happens, you probably would have other symptoms.
