Piles Natural Cure And Alternative Remedies

Pile is the disease in which there are lumps inside and around your anus. Hemorrhoids are another term used for piles. These are the collection of inflamed tissue in the anal canal. These hemorrhoids contain blood vessels, support tissue, muscle and elastic fibers. Piles can have a range of sizes and they may be external or internal. These swollen veins are present in anus or in the lower rectum which are similar to varicose veins. In general, hemorrhoids are the vascular structures in the anal canal and in normal; they act as a cushion that help with stool control. But when they get swollen or inflamed then this is used to refer to disease. This is a very painful condition. So here in this article, we are going to discuss piles and its Ayurvedic aspect with proper Ayurvedic management.

piles, arsha, hemorrhoids

AYURVEDIC ASPECT OF PILES

In Ayurveda, we can correlate this disease with Arsha. Our Acharya clearly mentioned that Arsha disease is a result of improper digestion. When the food is not digested and remains inside the gut then it is converted into Aama which is known as Endotoxins and this aama is the root cause of Arsha disease. The condition in which there is a severe pain like someone (enemy) stabbed at that point is known as Arsha or the mass that obstructs the passage of stool and causes pain is known as Arsha. The mass at gudavali (dentate line) is called Arsha. Arsha in the classical texts comes under the category of Mahagadas.

The term guda derived from Guda Kridayam tagu malotsarge means the portion of the body which is responsible for the excretion of mala (feces) and flatulence (apana vayu) is called as guda.

MANAGEMENT OF ARSHA (PILES) AT AYURVEDIC PARLANCE

Ayurveda is the ancient holistic science of healing. It has immense potential to solve or help in many challenging problems of the medical world. One of the grave diseases is Arsha and it is becoming common and increasing in the society. So it is important to treat or manage this disease as early as possible. In Ayurveda, our Acharya well mentioned the herbal treatment protocol for Arsha disease.

ACCORDING TO ACHARYA CHARAK THE PRINCIPLE TREATMENT OF ARSHA ROGA (DISEASE) IS4

This shloka means that Acharya believes that this procedure is well managed by either application of alkali or either by cauterization and these procedures are right if performed by a learned, wise and experienced surgeon.

Some Non-Operative Procedures Are

Role Of Sweden (Sudation) Therapy5

According to Acharya Charaka, If pile mass is stiff and associated with swelling and also pain is there then Sudation therapy or fomentation should be done. Firstly mass is smeared with the oil prepared by boiling chitraka (Plumbago zeylanica), alkalies and Bilva (Aegle marmelos) and then fomented with pottali (medicines tied in a piece of cloth) which is prepared or that contains yav (Hordeum vulgare), masha (Vigna mungo), kulathi (Macrotyloma uniflorum) and Pulaka (tucchadhnnya) or Pottali prepared from the cake of the sesame seed.

Role of Parisechan (Sprinkling)6

This shloka states that pile mass is also sprinkled with the decoction of the leaves of Vasa (Adhatoda vasica), Arka (Calotropis procera), Eranda (Ricinus communis) and Bilva (Aegle marmelos). It will give relief from pain and swelling.

Role Of Avagahan(Sitz Bath)7

Acharaya Charak mentioned that if there is pain in the pile mass then it should be smeared with medicated oil and give sitz bath with the help of decoction prepared from the leaves of radish (Raphanus sativus), Amla (Emblica officinalis), harad (Terminalia chebula), bahera (Terminalia bellerica), Arka (Calotropis procera), Varuna (Crataeva nurvala), Agnimantha (Premna integrifolia), Shigru (Moringa oleifera) and Pashanbheda (Bergenia ligulata).

Role Of Abhyanga (Massage)8

Acharya Charak mentioned the role of massage therapy in pile mass. He said that the fat (charbi) variety of black snake, pig, camel, bats and cat should be applied on the pile mass and after then fumigation of piles should also done with the help of human hair, snake worm, cat’s skin, roots of Arka (Calotropis procera) and leaves of shami (Prosopis cineraria).

Ayurvedic Pralepa (Ointments) For Arsha9

This shloka states that we should apply the paste of herbs in the pile mass for pain and swelling. In pile mass we should apply the powder of haridra (Curcuma longa) mixed with latex of Snuhi (Euphorbia neriifolia) or we can also apply the paste prepared from the powders of seeds of Shirish (Albizia lebbeck), Kutha (Saussurea lappa), Pippali (Piper longum), Saindhav Lavan (Rock salt), Gurh (Jaggery), Latex of Arka (Calotropis procera), Amla (Emblica officinalis), harad (Terminalia chebula), bahera (Terminalia bellerica) on the pile mass.

Operative Procedures Include

Raktamokshan (Bloodletting)10

This is a minor OT procedure used in the treatment of piles and other vitiated pitta and blood disorders. This procedure is done when the blood is vitiated and does not come out on its own even after all these above-mentioned protocols. In such conditions Raktamokshan should be done. This is done with the help of Leech, sharp instruments or needle.

These above are the treatment protocols for Shushak Arsha (Dry piles). Now we are going to discuss the Aadra Arsha (bleeding piles) treatment:

The Principle Treatment Of Choice For Raktaj Arsha (Bleeding Piles) Is11

This shloka means in bleeding piles if there is an association of vata dosha then one should give an unctuous and cold potency diet and if there is an association of Kapha dosha then one should give a rough and cold potency diet chart. If there is an association of Pitta and Kapha dosha in bleeding piles then detoxification therapy should be done. However, bleeding should not be stopped at the very first moment because it will cause more harmful effects on the body. This blood is vitiated and it is important not to prevent this.

Harmful Effects On The Body If Homeostasis Therapy Is Done At The Very Beginning12

Acharya Charak mentioned that if blood is arrested at the beginning then it may alter the functioning of Apana vayu and leads to many diseases like Bleeding disorders, fever, excessive thirst, indigestion, anorexia, jaundice, anemia, edema, skin disorders, obstruction in stool and urine, etc. therefore only after the elimination of vitiated blood from pile mass we should use hemostatic medicines to stop the bleeding.

Treatment Of Raktaj Arsha (Bleeding Piles)13

This shloka states that to stop bleeding we should give the decoction of Kutaja (Holarrhena antidysenterica) mixed with the powder of Shunthi (Zingiber officinale) and also we can give the decoction of dadima (Punica granatum) mixed with the powder of shunthi (Zingiber officinale).

These are the treatment protocols for the management of Arsha (piles). Now we are going to discuss some classical Ayurvedic medicines for the management of Arsha roga:

Rasa

  • Arshkuthar Ras
  • Nityodit Ras

Treatment for Cecal Volvulus in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

Cecal volvulus is a disease that is related to the intestines. Intestines are the muscular hollow tube which extends from the lower end of the stomach to the anus. These intestines are also called bowels. The food particles then pass through the stomach to the intestines in the form of Chyme and further digestion and absorption take place. Intestines are divided into two sections called the small intestine and the large intestine. Volvulus is a condition when portions of the intestine get tangled upon a mesenteric axis. This tangled condition can cause impairment of the blood supply which further can result in complete or partial obstruction of the lumen. In this article, we will discuss the term cecal volvulus which is a type of Volvulus and its Ayurvedic management.

Cecal volvulus, Cecal bascule

INTRODUCTION

Cecal volvulus is a rare condition in which a part of the intestine is entangled or a loop of the intestine twisted with itself and resulting in bowel obstruction. Cecal volvulus term is used to describe when the cecum (which is in between the small bowel and colon) twists on itself and detaches itself from the abdominal wall. This rare condition describes the torsion of the cecum which often results in obstruction. If this condition is unrecognized then it can result in intestinal perforation or fecal peritonitis. Usually, a person may mismatch this condition with normal stomach problems and often results in some complications.

ETIOLOGY / CAUSES

In this condition, the terminal ileum and right colon are involved. It occurs when loose mesentery twists around an axis and it can occur when the cecum is untangled from a caudate to cephalad direction. Other possible causes are:

  • Weakened colon muscles
  • Hirschprung’s disease
  • Pelvic tumors
  • Infections
  • Violent coughing fits
  • Enlargement of the colon

CLINICAL FEATURES / SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

A person may experience the following symptoms due to this disease:

  • Abdominal distension
  • Constipation
  • Flatulence
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Bilious vomiting
  • Ischemia to the affected portion

DIAGNOSIS

After a thorough physical examination, the doctor will advise you to do some imaging tests to diagnose this disease. Commonly abdominal X-ray should be done to confirm the volvulus. In this imaging technique, there is an appearance of a bent inner tube sign or a coffee bean sign and in case if there is a doubt to diagnose this condition then a barium enema may be done. There is an appearance of Bird’s beak at the point where there is a volvulus of the cecum.

TREATMENT

The only treatment of choice for this condition is surgery. The procedure is known as cecopexy. In this procedure, the cecum may be returned to its position and sutured in the right place.

But Surgery has its own side effects on the body. But don’t worry there is a wonderful solution for those who are not willing to go for surgery. But don’t worry you can use wonderful Ayurvedic herbal remedies for the treatment of this disease.

Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Treatment in Ayurveda

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative bacteria. This bacteria causes diseases in humans, plants and animals. This bacteria is commonly found in the environment like soil, water and other moist locations. This bacteria is a common encapsulated gram-negative, strict aerobic, rod-shaped bacteria. These bacteria can thrive not only in a normal environment but also thrive in low oxygen atmospheres and colonize many natural and artificial environments. This bacteria is a multidrug resistant pathogen which is also known as MDR pathogen and is known for its antibiotic resistant properties. It affects the organs like eyes, lungs, kidneys, skin, etc. This bacteria mostly affects people who are already immunocompromised or who are associated with serious illnesses. It attacks the weak immune system and produces tissue damaging toxins. The people who are suffering from cancer and have burns are more susceptible to this bacterial infection. In this article we are going to discuss this bacteria and its Ayurvedic aspect in detail.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

AYURVEDIC ASPECT OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA

We can correlate this disease with Krimi roga, specifically Raktaj krimi. These parasites have minute size, round in shape and without legs and some parasites are microscopic in size. According to the Ayurveda, our Acharya said that low agni (Weak digestion) is the main cause of parasite growth. People with weak digestion or improper digestion for a longer period are ideal hosts for parasite invasion. Parasite affects more on vata and kapha predominant people. Hence Agni also plays an important role in krimi roga (disease). “Krimi klavye medhyati” means those organisms which invade the skin are called krimi (parasites).

ETIOLOGY/CAUSES

This infection of this disease is caused when a person is immunocompromised or when the patient is already hospitalized. This bacterial infection is transmitted via ventilator support or any other medical instrument. An infection is also created in burn patients or in any other wounds that have direct exposure to the external environment. The incubation period is 24-72 hours.

Raktaj Krimi Nidana (Causes)1

The causes of Raktaj krimi are:

  • Take unfavorable food
  • Overeating
  • Excessive intake of green leafy vegetables
  • Excessive intake of sugary products

CLINICAL FEATURES/SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

DIAGNOSIS

The diagnosis is made through physical examination and proper medical history. A blood test should be performed to detect the presence of bacteria.

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA INFECTION3

This shloka states that in all parasitic infections we should do extraction of these parasites first and then destroy the source of their origin and at last avoid the etiological factors of the disease. 

  1. Apakarshan Procedure (Extraction of Worms): The apakarshan procedure mentioned by Acharya Charaka is the extraction of worms either with the help of hands or with the help of some instruments. If parasites are invaded in the internal organs of the body then eliminative therapy should be done. This means that with the help of medicated drugs we should do shiro virechana (administration of medicine through the nasal route), vaman (emesis), virechana (purgation), asthapana basti (non-unctuous enema).
  2. Prakriti Vighata (Extinction of Etiology): For this procedure, we have to use pungent, bitter, astringent, alkaline and hot drugs for the destruction of the source of the origin of parasites and also use other measures that are contrary to kapha dosha. This is called prakriti vighata treatment.
  3. Nidana Parivarjana (Etiology Avoidance): This is the basic treatment protocol for all diseases and it is also known as Ardhachikitsa (half way of treatment). One should avoid the etiological factors (mentioned above) which mean those things which aggravate the disease.

AHAs and their Significance in Skin Care

AHA are acid molecules that can be plant based or animal based. They are used as ingredients of beauty, hair and skin care products especially meant for damage repair and anti aging. They are used in the manufacture of toners, creams, masks, lotions, etc. and also as medicated ointments meant for use only by prescription. AHAs can be very effective if used correctly. This article explains what AHAs are, how they work and why they are used, and what natural foods and facial application products can be used in place of the chemical laden beauty products, so as to avoid the side effects.

AHA, Alpha Hydroxy Acids

INTRODUCTION: WHAT IS AHA?

AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acids. The AHAs occur naturally in fruits and some animal products. AHAs are used extensively in beauty and skincare products because of their many beneficial effects on human skin, the most popular of which is the anti-aging property of AHAs. The following sources are currently used for the extraction of AHAs:

  • Milk: milk contains lactose
  • Pickled foods
  • Grapes
  • Apples, Pears
  • Honeycombs
  • Sugarcane
  • Citrus Fruits
  • Animal tissues

USES AND FUNCTION

The use of AHA as ingredients in skincare products is very broad. The glycolic acid along with lactic acid are mostly used and are the safest forms of AHA available as they have been used quite widely and no side effects have been observed or reported. They also maintain the natural suppleness of the skin and reduce irritation. They are not known to cause any irritation. This is the reason why most AHA containing products that are available for purchase without prescription, are based out of either lactic acid or glycolic acid. The AHAs are included in beauty and cosmetic products because they can have the following effects on the skin:

  • They help remove the upper dead layer of skin cells.
  • Improve the blood circulation in the area
  • Improve elasticity and strengthen collagen fibers
  • Prevent breaking of smooth fine facial muscles
  • Reduce pigmentation
  • Prevent discoloration
  • Prevent pimples and acne
  • Improve texture and smoothen the surface
  • Decrease the fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decrease sagging
  • Improve absorption and perspiration via the skin

5 NATURAL AHA FACE MASKS

Since AHAs are mostly extracted from fruits and food products, you can prepare your own fresh face masks full of AHAs, naturally with ingredients available at your home. These masks can be used to exfoliate i.e. remove dead skin cells, cleanse the pores, and improve the texture of the skin by promoting the exposure of new skin.

1. Citrus AHA Mask

Lemons, oranges, grapefruits, etc. are all rich in citric acid.  Not only the consumption of these citric fruits is beneficial for the body in many ways, the citric acid present in them is very effective in reducing the pigmentation i.e. dark colored spots and patches, and also the spots left after acne has occurred.

Mix well 2 tbsp milk with minimum 6 % fat with 1 tbsp of freshly squeezed juice of lemon, orange, tangerine or grapefruit. Leave the mixture for some time. Next, apply this paste liberally on the neck and the face, leaving the eyes. Keep it for half an hour, and then rinse with lukewarm water. Even if your skin is oily, avoid using soap or face wash. Pat dry and if required, use a moisturizer.

2. Sugar Honey AHA Mask

Raw, unprocessed sugar contains some of the glycolic acid content naturally occurring in sugarcane. Glycolic acid possesses excellent exfoliating properties, making it a common ingredient in scrubs and face washes. It is effective in removing the top layer of skin cells thus reducing the scars and marks that occurred because of the top layer of the skin being damaged. Crush 2 tbsp raw sugar in a pestle mortar. Try to use the most unprocessed and raw sugar you can get. Mix in it 2 tbsp naturally extracted honey and 1 tsp lemon juice. Apply the mix on your face and neck but avoid the eyes. Leave for 2-3 minutes only and wash off with lukewarm water.

3. Apple AHA Mask

Apples contain malic acid which is one of the major AHAs. The malic acid content is further boosted when vinegar is prepared with apples. It absorbs excess oil and mixture from the pores and deepest cavities in the skin, thus absorbing sebum, dead cells and dirt. You will need the most raw and unprocessed apple cider vinegar you can get. Take one tbsp of it and dab on your face using a cotton swab. Take care not to apply too close to the eyes. It may feel tingling or pinching on your skin as it dries up. When it dries completely, remove it by rubbing or with a wet wipe.

4. Tartaric AHA Mask

Tartaric acid is probably the softest on the skin therefore most suitable for sensitive skin. It is found in grapes, thus wine and champagne are excellent sources of tartaric AHAs. Mix 75 ml of champagne with fuller's earth and apply it on your face and neck. Leave it on for around 15-20 minutes and then rinse gently.

5. Lactic AHA Mask

Lactic acid is most commonly found in milk, yogurt, curds, etc. Some lactic acid is also found in grapefruits. People with dry skin can greatly benefit from lactic acid face masks since such masks can also balance excess dryness and replenish lost oils and nutrients from the skin. Lactic acid is also very mild and safe for application on even sensitive skin types. You can apply yogurt regularly on your face every three days. To prepare a natural face wash, mix 2 tsp fuller earth with 2 tbsp beaten curd or yogurt, and add in 2-3 tsp of grapefruit juice. Apply on the face and neck, and if you want to add a scrubbing effect to it add a tsp of sugar. Massage gently for two minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water. Use this face mask once a week.

SIDE EFFECTS

Although AHAs are not extremely harmful for any skin type, every person's skin is different and may react with a substance in different ways. Some people may experience the following side effects upon their first use of AHA based products:

  • Minimal discomfort
  • Burning sensation
  • Itching and irritation
  • Warmth over the applied area
  • Eczema
  • Very small blisters

However, the side effects shall resolve on their own within a few days as the skin gets habitual of the product. You should apply ice on the affected area and avoid exposing skin to direct sun. You should not apply on skin that you have recently waxed or shaved, or skin that has new cuts or burns. Also, if you already suffer from eczema, psoriasis or any other inflammation of the skin, you should avoid using these products without proper guidance from a dermatologist. Pregnant and lactating women should also not use it.

CONCLUSION

AHA products are quite popular amongst the skin care and beauty experts’ right now because of the many benefits they offer, but it should be understood that these are strong and aren’t recommended for usage without guidance or recommendation. However, upon consultation with an expert, you can recommend the best suitable AHA products for your skin and hair type. A dermatologist can provide the best advice regarding this. Care should also be taken while buying products as all brands do not produce standardized formulations. AHA products are great for skin exfoliation and are available as creams, serums, toners, gels, face and hair masks, and peel- off type creams.

Sexual Dysfunction in Young Males and Females & Natural Management

Sexual dysfunction in young males and females is a concern and it is becoming increasingly common these days. While the male and female reproductive systems differ a lot in structure and function, some contributing factors can be shared, like stress and nutritional deficiencies. In female dysfunction the hormones have a great role to play and in males the nutrition has a major role. Sexual dysfunction can be managed with therapeutic yoga, herbal ayurvedic supplements and lifestyle modifications. This article describes male and female sexual dysfunction in detail along with the best yoga practices and herbal supplements to boost drive in both males and females. Lifestyle modifications are mentioned which should be taken seriously.

INTRODUCTION

Both men and women may face issues in their sex drive but it is less common for women to talk about it. The inability to carry on or enjoy sex in young men and women is known as sexual dysfunction. The sex drive in humans can be understood as occurring in four phases - Desire, Arousal, Orgasm and Resolution. The resolution phase differs in men and women, while the first three are generally similar in all men and women. Sexual dysfunction can affect one or both partners at a time. It may have many factors, and the whole problem can be entirely different for men and women. Factors that contribute to sexual dysfunction can be physical, psychological, or hormonal.

Sexual Dysfunction in Young Males and Females

SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION IN YOUNG WOMEN

Sexual dysfunction in women can be affected by various things, the most important of which is the phase of their menstrual cycle and the hormones dominant at that time. Sensation of pain during the intercourse, inability to get aroused despite the partner being aroused, inability to reach an orgasm, the lack or loss of the desire to have sex, etc. are major forms of sexual dysfunction in women. Around one third of young women may have sexual dysfunction and they may not even realize it. Sexual dysfunction is common in older adults but for young women the fear of getting pregnant and having to take the responsibility of becoming a new mom is a common factor causing anorgasmia i.e. the inability to get an orgasm. Contributing causes in women can be:

  • Premenstrual or during menstruation or whenever the hormone estrogen is high, sexual desire is less in women.
  • In the initial stages of pregnancy when pregnancy is not even known the drive may have already reduced.
  • Some women may be annoyed by the thought of having sex during the time they are pregnant.
  • Phases of menstrual cycle can have different symptoms in the reproductive organs; such as dryness or lack of natural lubrication in the sex organs can be caused by improperly functioning local glands responsible for lubrication. It can result in painful sex for both partners.
  • Some chronic health conditions can interfere with the sex drive of women, such as thyroid imbalances, ovarian cyst disorders, arthritis, uterine abnormalities such as fibroids or endometriosis, etc.
  • Some acute health conditions such as fever or malaise, nausea or premenstrual symptoms, mood swings, etc. can temporarily interfere with sex drive in women.
  • Perimenopause i.e. the age of early forties to late fifties can have great fluctuations of hormones in women. It impacts sexual function.
  • Nutritional deficiencies can cause problems with blood flow which should be increased for sex to be enjoyed.
  • Women on certain medications such as antidepressants can find it extremely difficult to enjoy sex.
  • Stress, anxiety and tension, both acute and chronic, have great impact on the sex drive.
  • The partner’s attitude may be a turn off for many individuals.
  • If an individual has been abused sexually in the past by other or the same partner, their sex drive is affected profoundly and it shall take time, cooperation, care and patience to recover.

SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION IN YOUNG MEN

Although older adults find it common to have problems in their sexual function, these days younger males are also having issues with their reproductive health and sexual performance. The most experienced and reported problems with male sexual function are – problems getting or maintaining an erection of the sex organ, not being able to maintain orgasm as long as their partner, not being able to relieve i.e. ejaculate fluid, or reduced desire for sex altogether.  The factors that cause these problems can be:

  • Hormonal, i.e. irregularity or reduced secretion of the male sexual hormone, testosterone.
  • Being concerned or nervous about their own sexual performance.
  • Not being comfortable with their partner.
  • Chronic or acute stress, anxiety or tension.
  • Interference of past sexual experiences.
  • Other thoughts, such as family or work related ones interfering during sex.
  • Lack of blood circulation in the sex organs.
  • Problems with the urinary tract.
  • Problems with the prostate gland.
  • Drug abuse has a severe adverse effect on sexual function in males.
  • Expectation for a partner to be sexually frank in a particular way.
  • Damaged nerves from past drug abuse.
  • Damaged nerves and muscles from nutritional deficiency.
  • Long repressed sexual desires.
  • Diabetes.
  • Certain medications such as antidepressants or steroids.
  • Overuse of drugs that are meant to improve sexual performance.
  • Overuse of stimulating material such as pictures or videos

HERBAL REMEDIES FOR SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION

Certain herbs and food items can have a direct impact on our reproductive mechanisms. The following herbs and food items have a direct or indirect impact on one’s sexual performance in both men and women:

  • Saffron: this bright colored strand obtained from saffron flowers is an important and gourmet component in Indian cuisine, and it has great medicinal value. It is a natural aphrodisiac and boosts blood and nerve health.
  • Shilajit: Shilajit is extremely famous for its benefits in improving libido in men, but it is as beneficial for women too.
  • Gokhru (Tribulus terrestris):  a plant whose fruits are used in ayurvedic formulations, Gokhru improves sex drive in women as well as men.
  • Ginseng: Ginseng is being used in traditional medicine for improving vitality and rejuvenation. It improves sexual function.
  • Fenugreek: fenugreek is a common ingredient in Indian households but it is a secret of grandmothers that this little seed is very helpful in improving sex drive especially if it has been reduced due to an imbalance in hormones.
  • Nuts and seeds: Nuts and seeds that contain healthy oils and dense fatty acids are extremely beneficial for individuals whose sex drive has been adversely affected due to dietary insufficiencies.
  • Milk and Honey: this customary drink that is portrayed in cinema as the magic potion for new married couples actually has medicinal value as well. It is of great importance in ayurvedic remedies to improve libido.

  • Eat a balanced diet. This way you can prevent nutritional deficiencies. Nutrients are essential for proper development and function of each organ in the body.
  • Practice yoga regularly even if you have no health problems. It is so because yoga will help maintain the state of health and prevent all diseases.
  • Hormones play a key role in sexual function in both males and females. Therefore hormone balance should be maintained via an active lifestyle and balanced diet.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight. Excess weight hampers the natural processes of the body, including hormones and metabolism.
  • Do not consume strong medications usually. The medications make the body dependent on them and also interfere with natural hormone production.
  • You should not shy away from discussing your problems with your partner and / or an expert.

CONCLUSION

Sexual dysfunction can be really frustrating especially when you are a young adult and have not even started entering late adulthood. Both men and women can face problems in their sex drive. Various factors that affect the sex drive in men and women should be discovered and eliminated. Women as well as men may find it challenging to speak to someone about it. But this is nothing to be embarrassed or hesitant about. You can join personal yoga sessions where your therapist shall evaluate your history in detail and will guide you about the most effective yoga practices and diet. The practices and supplements mentioned here are generally safe and effective for everyone but people with multiple conditions should compulsorily consult an expert before beginning any program.

Poland Syndrome and its Ayurvedic Management

Poland syndrome is a birth defect. Birth defects are also called congenital anomalies. Birth defects are those defects that occur before a baby is born. Symptoms usually appear within the first year of life. It may result in disabilities that may be developmental, physical or intellectual. These disabilities may range from mild to moderate. These birth defects are either structural or functional. The exact cause of these birth defects is not known. But it may result from genetic or chromosomal disorders. In this article we are going to discuss one of the birth defects that is Poland syndrome and its Ayurvedic management.

INTRODUCTION

Poland syndrome is a disease in which there is a lack of muscle development on one side of the body. This is a birth defect that is characterized by underdeveloped chest muscles of one side of the body and also short webbed fingers. In this disease, the right side of the body is mainly involved. This syndrome consists of anatomic anomalies such as absence of sternocostal head of the pectoralis major muscle, absence of pectoralis minor muscle, digital anomalies such as syndactyly, absence of the affected side breast, rib aplasia. It is named after British surgeon Sir Alfred Poland. It is also called the Poland sequence.

Poland syndrome

ETIOLOGY/CAUSES

The cause of this syndrome is unknown. But the researchers say that the syndrome develops due to an interruption of the blood supply to the arteries that lie under the clavicle or collarbone which is called subclavian artery. This blood supply hampers in the 46th day of embryonic development. This artery supplies blood to the embryonic tissue that gives rise to the chest wall and hand.

CLINICAL FEATURES / SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Patient has an asymmetrical body frame in this syndrome. Patient who is suffering from this syndrome may have following sign and symptoms:

  • Lack of one sided chest muscles
  • Chest appears concave
  • Syndactyly
  • Shorter forearm on one side
  • Underdeveloped rib cage
  • Abnormal gastrointestinal tract
  • Absence of nipples
  • An elevated shoulder blade
  • Fingers are webbed 

DIAGNOSIS

This syndrome is usually diagnosed at birth.

Herbal Remedies for Russell Silver Syndrome

Russell silver syndrome is a condition that is characterized by intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Intrauterine growth restriction is a genetic condition that is caused during intrauterine life due to improper nutrition to the fetus. Obstetrics is a science of studying the health concerns of mother and fetus. The delivery of a child is based on various factors. A child's birth weight is one of the most important factors that affect the mortality and morbidity of the child. Apart from premature delivery, IUGR is the second cause of low birth weight babies. Intrauterine growth restriction can cause many anti-partam, Intrapartum, and postpartum complications in a fetus such as oligohydramnios acidosis, RDS, Russell silver syndrome, hyperviscosity syndrome, etc. But in this article, we are going to discuss one of the IUGR complications that are RSS i.e. Russell silver syndrome and its ayurvedic management.

INTRODUCTION

Russell silver syndrome is a rare congenital growth disorder. This syndrome is one of 200 types of dwarfism and also one of the five types of primordial dwarfism. Males and females seem to be affected equally in number. It is associated with poor growth before birth and also after birth. This is genetically heterogeneous means that different genetic abnormalities can cause this syndrome. It was first described by Henry Silver in 1953 and Alexander Russell in 19541. These two discoverers saw different aspects of the same condition.

Russell Silver Syndrome

ETIOLOGY / CAUSES

In the last few years, it has become possible to confirm the cause of this syndrome because of genetic testing. Two main genetic changes are currently known to cause this syndrome. One is chromosome 7 and another one is chromosome 11. These two chromosomal defects can cause this syndrome.

CLINICAL FEATURES / SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Signs and symptoms of RSS can vary from person to person. Symptoms of RSS are intrauterine growth restriction combined with the following symptoms:

  • Birth weight less than 2 kg
  • Baby refuses to feed
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Excessive sweating
  • Short stature
  • Scoliosis
  • Curving of the little finger (clinodactyly)
  • Body asymmetry that is arms and legs of different lengths
  • Delayed bone age
  • Psychosocial challenges
  • Poor appetite
  • Triangular face with a small jaw and pointed chin
  • Low muscle tone
  • Constipation

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS

  • Temple syndrome

DIAGNOSIS

The diagnosis is made through clinical examination. But clinical examination alone can lead to overlaps with syndromes similar to this syndrome such as temple syndrome and 12q14 microdeletion syndrome. For this, you should go to test for 11p15 loss of methylation and mUPD7. If the report comes negative, then tests for mUPD16, mUPD20, and also testing for 14q32 should also take place for Temple syndrome for differential diagnosis. But mostly this syndrome is diagnosed by some clinical examination.

TREATMENT

The treatment of choice is symptomatic. The caloric intake of children must be carefully controlled for providing the best opportunity for growth. If a child is unable to feed through the oral route then parenteral feeding should be done such as the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy. In limb length differences or scoliosis, physiotherapy can alleviate the symptoms. At last, surgery is needed to improve the posture of the baby.

Afraid of allopathic medicines and surgery? We have wonderful herbal formulations for the treatment of this disease. These herbal formulations have no side effects and prevent your child from surgeries also.

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

  • Use of dry foodstuffs should be avoided
  • A nutritious diet such as milk and meat soup should be used
  • Milk mixed with mulethi (glycyrrhiza glabra), the fruit of Kashmari (platenus orientalis) with sariva Hemidesmus indicus) and sugar
  • Meat soup should be given
  • Acharya Charaka has mentioned that when Vata is vitiated then the fetus gets emaciated. For the growth and development of this, the milk should be medicated with Sita (Saraca asoca), Kashmari (Platenus orientalis), and madhuka (Madhuca longifolia) and prescribed to the patient.

Iron is one of the essential minerals present in the body that helps in growth as well as development. Iron helps in making hemoglobin, a protein present in red blood cells that is useful in carrying oxygen.
