Best Alternatives To Plastic Utensils And Their Health Benefits


Plastic is present in almost everything other thing we use and has become an indispensable part of life. Surely it is very difficult to eliminate the use of plastic completely from our lives. Plastic is used in the form of water bottles, food storage containers, one time use utensils and other products. Polypropylene and polystyrene are the two main types of plastic of which most disposable cutlery in takeaways and supermarkets are used and these two are the most problematic types of plastic as well.

Best Alternatives To Plastic Utensils


Before buying any plastic made product always remember that it is made of polluting and finite fossil fuels. Adding to this, even more fossil fuels are burned in production and distribution of these plastic made products. Freshwater is also used in the production of plastic. All of these things imply that using such disposable plastic cutlery and throwing them away is a big wasteful action that contributes to different types of pollution and global warming. Before buying the plastic utensils, always remember that it costs not only your money but plays a role in the climate crisis as well. This is because producing only one pound of plastic releases 2.5 lbs of CO2 and takes up to 78 liters of water. Both the mentioned forms of plastic from which the disposable cutlery is manufactured are very difficult to recycle and are expensive as well. The main issue in recycling them is their color and their size, which is very small. The structure is complex and contaminated when entering the waste stream.

There are many reasons which suggests that using plastic utensils can be really bad for health as well, because:

  • When you heat food in these plastic cutlery, several toxins (Oligomers) are produced which are harmful to the human body as well as the environment. These oligomers are very small and one might be eating them with their food. In case of high doses of these toxic substances, it causes liver and thyroid diseases, high cholesterol, cancer and infertility.
  • Eating hot food in these plastic cutleries can be harmful to health and when these cutleries are decomposed after dumping, the poisonous fumes are emitted from it causing serious human health problems.
  • Plastic cutlery hampers the taste of the food.
  • These plastic cutleries are very fragile and can break easily and if food is eaten in these damaged cutleries, various toxins can enter your food and then your body that are hazardous to health.
  • They are not heat resistant hence food cannot be cooked or it cannot be used in the microwave.
  • Not only the plastic cutlery but its production is also very harmful as benzene is formed during its manufacture which contains many dangerous chemicals like phthalates. Benzene is also a marked carcinogen.
  • As almost everyone knows, it is almost impossible to decompose the products of plastic like plastic cutlery. It can take around 20-500 years to decompose which is obviously a lot. Also these cutleries are made of polyethylene terephthalate which is almost indestructible that means much harder to decompose.

Implying to all the things above, now is the high time that we shift from plastic disposable cutlery to something better which is easy to dispose of and not harmful to the human body as well as our environment. This can be done by keeping the plastic out of the waste stream as much as possible. Let's give a look to some eco-friendly alternatives that are good for humans as well as marine life and our mother earth.

  1. Sugarcane made cutlery - These are the conventional form of cutlery that can help in erasing the demand of plastic cutlery from the market. This cutlery is prepared from extract remnants of sugarcane, i.e. bagesse. It is a disposable cutlery which decomposes within 80-90 days that they are very easy to dispose and decompose without harming the climate. Sugarcanes matures in just about 2 years, which reduces the high dependence on trees and also there is no need for oil which is used in plastic cutlery.
  2. Edible cutlery - Such cutlery is made from hygienic, best and healthy pulses, grains, millets that are very nutritious to mind, body and soul. Such products are biodegradable, conserve water as there is minimal water usage in production and zero wastage of any other natural resources. Edible cutlery is competitively sustainable and environmentally friendly. Such cutlery can be eaten after eating the food or consuming a drink.
  3. Cutlery which itself biodegrades into manure - This form of cutlery is prepared from plant oils, sugarcane or corn, animal fats, woodchips, straw, sawdust and even orange peels. These natural things are converted into PLA (Polylactide acid) which is a bioplastic. This resembles the traditional plastic but it is vegetable based renewable cutlery. Such cutlery breaks down itself regardless of the condition and there is no need for any industrial facilities for it.
  4. Recycle agriculture waste cutlery - Such cutlery is made from the agriculture waste like corn husk, pineapple crown, seeds and natural fibers. This cutlery is completely biodegradable and compostable as it is prepared from all the natural components. As there is the possibility of growing new plants, it reduces the environmental impact.
  5. Disposable tableware made of Up-Cycled Agricultural excess - This innovative cutlery is made by converting the raw materials into natural fibers which have self binding ability through a mechanical process. Bleaching or the energy intensive process of extraction of cellulose is not used in this raw material. Hence, the wastage of water and excessive use of chemicals is avoided in this production process.

We all need to rethink our choices about the things we use and buy as everything we use, other than having an effect on our body it also affects the environment around us. We need to change the mindset of using easy, cheap and convenient things that have bad effects on us as our mother nature in the long run. Thinking conscientiously and deeply about our actions can help us in making a better choice. Going through minor inconveniences can save you from adverse effects of harmful things on your body as well as save our planet and humanity's future! Foe more details kindly visit

Herbal Remedies for Fibromyalgia


Fibromyalgia is a painful condition of the body's musculoskeletal system. Some people define pain as burning pain and needle-pricking pain in the whole body. Fibromyalgia has disability ratings up to 40%. The average range in Fibromyalgia diagnosed is 30 to 45 years. Fibromyalgia mainly occurs in females.  People may have pain in their muscles from the very beginning but mostly they ignore these symptoms. This can adversely affect the condition later in life. Ayurveda modalities can arrest the progression of pain and other symptoms very effectively which are discussed in this article. Also in this article, we will discuss possible causes and various symptoms of this disease.



Fibromyalgia also called Fibromyalgia Syndrome is defined as widespread pain and tenderness in the body's muscles. It can also cause cognitive issues. The pain is triggered by physical stress. Also, it can trigger emotional stress. The Social Security Administration has established rules and has assured that Fibromyalgia can cause disabilities. It can also occur along with other joint and muscle conditions such as Rheumatoid arthritis and ocular symptoms such as dry eye, visual disturbance, and corneal sensitivity. The symptoms may be worse in cold weather. Fibromyalgia may impact the quality of life of the person.


Pain and stiffness are the main symptoms of aggravated Vata dosha in the body. Imbalanced Vata leads to pain in the body. The imbalance is due to improper lifestyle and diet. The continuation of Virudh diet and lifestyle will further worsen the symptoms. Ignoring the aggravation of dosha. And not trying to pacify the dosha, along with continued practice of Vataj aahar and vihar leads to chronic pain and other many disabilities in the body.


Since the cause of Fibromyalgia is unclear, it is assumed to occur due to the following reasons-

  • Serious past injuries
  • Physical and emotional stress
  • Genetic causes
  • Autoimmune diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Central nervous system issues


Pain is the main symptom of Fibromyalgia, other associated symptoms found in the patients are as follows-

  • Muscle pain (full body muscle pain)
  • Muscles fatigue
  • Pain and stiffness in the body
  • Weakness
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Altered sleep
  • Memory defects
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

In Severe Cases, It Might Also Cause:-

  • Tooth decay
  • Hair loss
  • Eyesight loss
  • Light sensitivity
  • Pelvic and urinary problems
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty in sitting and standing


There is no specific test that can rule out Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia can occur due to rheumatoid arthritis. The tests can be performed to confirm the diagnosis. But there are no adequate diagnostic criteria for confirming Fibromyalgia.

  • Medical history is taken
  • Full physical examination
  • MRI
  • X-ray
  • 18 point test

American College of Rheumatology has laid three criteria for confirming Fibromyalgia:-

  1. Pain, sleep, cognitive issues, fatigue-like symptoms in the previous week.
  2. Symptoms present from the last three months.
  3. No presence of other health conditions with the same symptoms.


The proper evaluation must be done to differentiate Fibromyalgia from other disorders with similar symptoms such as-

  • Lower back pain
  • Gout
  • Sprains
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Muscles Strain
  • Myasthenia Gravis


Unfortunately, there is no cure for Fibromyalgia, but can be managed with a few medications that can help to control the symptoms from getting worse.

  • Analgesics (painkillers)
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Multivitamins
  • Medications to manage fatigue
  • Laser photo biomodular therapy

Ayurveda treatment includes therapies and medications for better and fast recovery. Both these modalities are used effectively in various cases along with dietary and lifestyle modifications.

  • Therapies-
    1. Abhyanga - Body massage with medicated oils according to the dosha, individual prakriti, and disease extent is prescribed. Abhyang is indicated only by the ayurvedic Doctor after observing the health condition of the patient
    2. Potli Massage therapy - Dry or Oil dipped potli is used in fibromyalgia. Again this therapy is performed after the consent of an ayurvedic Doctor. The type and duration of therapy are assured based on the various aspects.

Asbestos And Its Harmful Effects On Health, How It Causes Cancer?


Cancer is a condition in which there is an uncontrolled growth of body cells that spreads to the various body parts. It can start anywhere in the body and form trillions of cells. Generally the human cells multiply and grow, forming new cells that are much needed for the growth of the body. And in the normal process when the cells are damaged they die and new cells accumulate their place. Sometimes this order breaks down and the cells start growing in abnormal and uncontrolled ways. These abnormally growing cells start making tumors that can be cancerous as well as non-cancerous. The cancerous one has the ability to spread all over the body by the process of Metastasis. The benign or non-cancerous ones do not spread or invade into the nearby tissues. Sometimes these benign tumors can also cause serious complications especially when situated into such sites like in the brain. In the following article we are going to discuss one such particle that causes cancer which is asbestos, and also we will discuss the management of asbestos causing cancer in Ayurveda.



Asbestos refers to a group of fibrous minerals which is resistant to any kind of corrosion or heat. These properties make it useful for various purposes in a commercial department. On the other hand this material is highly toxic and once it gets ingested, will remain stuck in the body permanently. Although this material is used in making various substances to make them stronger which includes cloths, cement, paper, plastic and some other materials. Now let us discuss what are diseases related to Asbestos exposure, how it leads to Cancer and how to protect yourself from cancer. So let us discuss below about this cancer causing dangerous material.


Following are some of the facts about Asbestos that one must know: 

  • The Asbestos Exposure must occur in occupational settings as well as in homes. 
  • The primary cause of Mesothelioma is considered as Asbestos Exposure, this is the cancer of the lungs and abdominal lining.
  • There are other various kinds of Cancer that may occur due to Asbestos Exposure which includes ovarian, lung and laryngeal cancer. 
  • Until the 1980s, thousands of products in the US contained Asbestos.


Scientific research shows that Asbestos exposure can be linked to various diseases along with Cancer. Following are some of the diseases that can be caused by Asbestos:

  • Mesothelioma 
  • Lung Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Laryngeal Cancer
  • Asbestosis
  • Pleural effusion
  • Pleuritis
  • Pleural plaques
  • Diffuse pleural thickening
  • COPD


When a person inhales the fibers of Asbestos he  or she is unable to excrete it outside or to digest it. These fibers remain stuck around the sensitive lung tissues or abdomen tissues. Years and years pass these stuck fibers start causing inflammation and irritation which further damage the DNA and cells. This causes genetic changes, abnormal cell growth and at last cancer. It includes lung cancer and Mesothelioma and leads to half of the cancer deaths due to Occupations.


If a person experiences these symptoms they should pay attention to it and must have regular screenings. These symptoms include various symptoms.

  • Symptoms related to Respiratory System - Coughing, Shortness of breath, chest pain. If a person experienced these symptoms then it might be the symptoms of lung Cancer, pericardial mesothelioma and pleural mesothelioma.
  • Symptoms related to Digestive System - Digestion issues, swelling and pain in abdomen, nauseous, altered bowel habits, etc. if a person is facing these symptoms then there must be a chance of stomach cancer, peritoneal mesothelioma, ovarian cancer or colon cancer.
  • Symptoms related to Throat - Persistent hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, chronic sore throat, always a feel to clean throat, etc. so if anyone notices these symptoms they will definitely get them diagnosis for pleural mesothelioma and laryngeal cancer.


Asbestos exposure even in small amounts is not safe but the worst impact is seen when the concentration is very high. Whenever the exposure occurs more and more Asbestos gets accumulated in the body and by no way we can reverse it back. Once the Asbestos fibers become airborne they get easily inhaled. So it is important not to disturb the product containing asbestos. Especially people who are living by the side where the soil contains Asbestos must have to avoid contact with the soil. Most of the population having Asbestos related diseases are Men in 60s or more than 60s. It happens in old age as Asbestos causes disease by living in the body for decades.


Following are some of the tips for handling asbestos safely:

  • It is necessary to seal off the working area by covering it with plastic sheets.
  • Turn off the Air Conditioner and wear a respirator with HEPA filter (High Efficiency Particulate Air).
  • Usage of Pump sprayer is necessary to keep the Asbestos material wet by which we can suppress the dust containing Asbestos all the time.
  • With wet wipers clean the work area or also you can use a HEPA filter for it.
  • Place Asbestos in  labeled bags at a landfill which can accept asbestos.


The first step to diagnose Asbestos is to go and talk to your Doctor which is available at Primary Health Care Centre, tell him about Asbestos exposure, your symptoms and the health history. If a Doctor feels you are having symptoms of mesothelioma then he will conduct a proper physical examination and check the unusual signs. For clear diagnosis of this condition following steps can be offered by your Doctor:

  • Imaging Tests: These techniques involve X-ray, CT Scan and MRI. 
  • Blood tests and Biomarkers: Mesomark, Somamer and Human MPF can be done under this category. 
  • Biopsy Procedures: Thoracoscopy, Cytology tests, Mediastinoscopy and laparoscopy is to be done under Biopsy procedures.

Till here we discussed all about Asbestos, how it can accuse Cancer and how that cancer can be diagnosed. Now we will discuss how this cancer can be managed by Ayurvedic remedies. So let’s have a look!!!


Classical Ayurvedic Texts provide reference to cancer and describe this as a tridoshaj vyadhi. Cancer as per Ayurveda is regarded as Arbuda (Malignant neoplasm)  and Granthi (Benign Neoplasm).  Acharya Sushruta explains 6 types of tumors among which first four are considered as benign tumours and other two are considered as malignant tumors. The six types of tumors are Vataj Granthi, Pittaj Granthi, Kaphaja Granthi, Medas Granthi (affected adipose tissue), Rakta Arbuda (affected blood) and Mamsa Arbuda (affected muscle tissue).

  • Vataj Granthi - It is charecterised by sharp pain, large, black and mobile, hard bulge with aggravated vata  dosha.
  • Pittaj Granthi - Yellow and red in colour, cause burning sensation, grows quickly and has aggravated pitta dosha.
  • Kaphaja Granthi - It has no pain, cold, big hard lump, produces itching and has skin colour due to aggravated kapha dosha.
  • Rakta Granthi - In this type of granthi the aggravated vata, pitta and kapha dosha circulates throughout the bloodstream but predominantly the pitta dosha.
  • Mamsa Granthi - This type of Granthi is caused by consumption of excessive meat.
  • Asthi Granthi - Injuries and fractures in the bones lead to aggravation of vata dosha which further causes Asthi Granthi.
  • Sira Granthi - The excessive accumulation of vata dosha causes vitiation in the bodily tissues channels and causes Sira Granthi.
  • Vrana Granthi - Excessive intake of vitiated food prevents ulcer from healing and leads to granthi, known as Vrana Granthi.


  • Garlic - Along with various herbs Garlic also assists in preventing Cancer, especially stomach Cancer. It has wonderful anti-carcinogenic and immune strengthening properties that assist in managing cancer.
  • Ginger - There is one another kitchen ingredient that acts as a Cancer weapon. Ginger has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, thus fighting against cancer.
  • Black Pepper - Black Pepper contains a great substance that is piperine, includes miraculous antioxidant properties, along with other herbs it boosts the anti-cancerous effect.
  • Turmeric - Turmeric (Curcuma longa) contains curcumin which is one of the most effective antiinflammatory agents. Cancer cells get nourishment from newly formed blood vessels. Curcumin works against these newly formed blood vessels and prevents the nourishment of the cancer cells, thus preventing cancer.

For alleviating these types of Granthi, Planet Ayurveda provides you with a Crab Care Pack. It includes several herbal remedies that effectively assist in the management of cancer with their effectiveness. Let’s have a look on the remedies by Planet Ayurveda!!

Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis and Shin Splints in Ayurveda


Plantar fasciitis and Shin Splints both involve lower leg pain and inflammation due to overuse of the lower leg. The causes for both can be similar and the result can also be the same, but the site of pain may vary from each in a minute. Both these injuries are commonly seen in Sports persons. Here in this article, we will get to know the causes and symptoms of these two injuries. Also, we will spot the main difference between them and ayurvedic remedies for the management and recovery from such injuries.

Plantar Fasciitis, Shin Splints


Shin Splints also known as medial tibial stress syndrome, are defined as pain along the shin bone (Tibia) in the lower leg. Pain is caused by the overuse of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is of two types-

  • Anterior Shin Splints
  • Posterior Shin Splints

The sites of pain in both types are different. Pain down the front of the leg indicates Anterior Shin Splints and the pain down the inside of the leg indicates posterior Shin Splints. The overuse of the lower legs causes muscles, and connective tissues to rupture that causes painful splints. Overuse of legs is common among sports persons who are involved in strenuous activities such as football players, athletes, basketball players, and all sports that involve more usage of legs, which can put extended force on the shin bone and corresponding muscles.

Plantar fasciitis also known as policeman's heel is defined as muscle pain with inflammation on the bottom of the foot that connects the heel bone to the toe. The pain is stabbing in nature. The pain reduces as you walk and tends to decrease while continuing walking, while the pain will aggravate on prolonged standing or sudden movement after long rest. The injury is recovered by ice patching, and other conservative methods, while in rare cases arthroscopic surgery is recommended. That is done based on your symptoms and severity.


According to Ayurveda the over-usage and overstaining of muscles aggravate Vata dosha which will disbalance the Pitta and Kapha dosha. All these tridoshas together will lead to pain, tenderness, and stiffness in that particular area. Treatment modalities involve the intake of naturally and purely prepared Planet Ayurveda's herbal medications, application of our medicated oils, and following the guide and diet recommendations of our expert Ayurvedic Doctors.


The overuse of the lower leg is the main cause of these injuries which can be due to various reasons-

  • Repeated stretching of lower legs muscles
  • Long distance running
  • Repetitive stress on the shin bone
  • Dancing
  • Obesity
  • Flat feet (congenital foot abnormalities)
  • Prolonged standing (occupational factors)
  • More common in people of age more than 40 years


Symptoms of these injuries include abnormalities in legs and differ in extent and site of legs-

Shin splints

  • Calf muscles pain and tightness
  • Pain and inflammation in the inner side of the lower leg
  • Pain along the Shin Bone
  • Pain aggravates after the exercise
  • Pain while running, and walking and might continue on rest

Plantar fasciitis

  • Pain in the foot heel that can radiate to the foot sole
  • Limping
  • Swelling and tenderness in the foot heel area
  • Pain aggravates long-standing, running, or jumping
  • Pain worsens in the morning
  • Pain is stabbing in nature


Diagnosis is confirmed based on the-

  • Medical history
  • Physical examination
  • Location of pain
  • The severity of pain and tenderness
  • X-Ray - can show a bone spur


Most people recover on their own in a few months with conservative treatment. While in some cases the condition may worsen on left untreated.

  • Pain killers
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Physical therapies
  • Night splints
  • Canes
  • Crutches
  • Walking boots for temporary methods to support the leg
  • Injections
  • Shock wave therapy
  • Ultrasonic tissue repair
  • Surgery

Ayurveda offers various therapies and natural herbs for recovery from lower leg injuries due to overstretching and overuse.

Panchkarma Therapies

Panchkarma therapies to reduce muscle stiffness and strengthen bones, joints, and muscles include abhyanga, swedan, sarvang dhara, potli, along with nasya. These therapies are done with various medicated oils and herbs, prescribed by the ayurvedic doctor according to the condition, age, as well as other factors of the patient.

Scapular Dyskinesis And Its Ayurvedic Treatment With Herbal Remedies


The scapula is one of the bones in our body which is large and of triangular shape which lies on the upper back. The bone is supported and surrounded by a complex structure of muscles that together works and supports the movement of your arm. If any condition or injury makes these muscles imbalanced or weak it further alters the scapular position while in motion or at rest. This alteration leads to various difficulties like - makes it difficult to move the arm mostly while doing overhead activities, causes weakening of shoulder and may lead to any serious injury also. There are a lot of shoulder disorders which cause earlier mentioned symptoms and one among them is Scapular Dyskinesis. In the below study we will discuss this Scapular condition in detail so let's have a look.

Scapular Dyskinesis


Scapular Dyskinesis is deviation or alteration in the active or resting position of the scapula while shoulder movement. For most of the people due to repetitive usage there are abnormal ways of movement of the scapula. For proper functioning of the shoulder the scapular rotation must be good. Scapula is also known as shoulder blade and it obeys as a base for functioning and activation of rotator cuff. Any soft tissue or bony injury nearby or around the shoulder alters the functioning of the scapula while on rest or in motion. This is a brief view on scapular dyskinesis, let's see the causes, symptoms and other details about this condition in the article below.


Following are the causes of Scapular Dyskinesis:

  • Imbalance, weakness, tightness or detachment of muscles that supports scapula.
  • Injury to the nerve supply of muscles which surrounds scapula.
  • Injuries of bones surrounding scapula or which forms the shoulder joint.

Above are some of the causes of Scapular Dyskinesis and below we will see what are the symptoms experienced by the person who is affected with Scapular Dyskinesis.


Commonly the following symptoms can experienced in case of Scapular dyskinesis:

  • Weakness of the arm
  • Pain around the scapula
  • Tenderness in the scapular region
  • Fatigue with repetitive movement of the affected shoulder
  • Retarted range of motion
  • Snapping or crunching sound while moving the shoulder
  • Winging or noticeable protrusion of scapula
  • Drooped posture (forward tilted) on affected side


The doctor will first take all the medical history or past history and even ask the questions about the symptoms. The doctor will examine the scapula and entire shoulder, look for injury, tightness or weakness. After this comes the visual observation while this the doctor will see the affected side from behind and compare it with the other side. To evaluate Scapular Dyskinesis the doctor asks to move the arm of the affected side for 3-5 times in up and down movement. If this activity shows any abnormal movement then there is a chance of Scapular Dyskinesis. The other examination includes manual muscle testing. In this there is a test done for checking strength of scapular muscles which evaluates muscle weakness.


In Ayurveda there is no direct correlation of Scapular Dyskinesis. As we read earlier the causes as per modern is any kind of muscle weakness that is due to aggravation of vata dosha and the another cause is abhighaat (injury) and injury also leads to aggravation of vata dosha.

Periodic Paralysis Management in Ayurveda


Paralysis is considered as the muscle function loss in any part of the body. This condition occurs when there is something wrong between the message passage from brain to muscles. This condition can be partial or complete and may affect one or both sides of the body. This condition makes it difficult for a person to perform his day to day activities. One such condition is Periodic paralysis which is a genetic condition. In this article we will discuss all about this condition and how Ayurveda can help in making the affected person’s quality of life good. So let’s take a look!!!!

Periodic Paralysis


Periodic paralysis includes a group of genetic disorders which leads to weakness of the affected area or its paralysis. It can be triggered by some common things such as heat, cold, high carbohydrate food, starvation, excitement, stress or any kind of physical activity. The common mechanism in these conditions includes malfunctioning of the ion channels of cell membranes of skeletal muscles. In this condition malfunctioning leads to leakage of electrically charged ions in or out from the muscle cells which causes depolarization of the muscle cells and restricts the movement of the muscles. So let us see in the below article about its types, causes, diagnosis and Ayurvedic management.


  • Periodic Paralysis is a rare genetic disorder which causes sudden attacks of stiffness, weakness and paralysis of muscles.  
  • Its episodes start in early childhood or may be from adulthood. 
  • The condition is triggered by stress, cold, exercise, fasting or high levels of thyroid hormones. 
  • As the patient grows older the condition becomes permanent. 
  • For managing this condition it is necessary to take medicines with a perfect diet and lifestyle changes.


Periodic Paralysis is a kind of autosomal dominant myopathy which includes following group of disorders:

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis - In this condition potassium leaks from the bloodstream into the muscle cells. 
  • Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis - In this condition  potassium leaks into the bloodstream from the muscle cells.  
  • Paramiotonia Congenita - This condition accompanies the hyperkalemic periodic paralysis, also sometimes present alone. The first symptom of this condition is muscle contracture that occurs while exercise and activity.
  • Andersen-Tawil Syndrome - This form of periodic paralysis consists of  fainting, heart rhythm problems and risk of sudden death. During its attacks potassium levels can be high, low or even normal.


One of the most common causes of periodic paralysis is altered potassium levels and some diets including carbohydrates along with various physical activities are considered as triggers of periodic paralysis. The common trigger is exercise after resting for a long time. Hyperkalemic type of periodic paralysis as the name suggests occurs due to high potassium levels outside the cell and the hypo is associated with low potassium levels. There is no other cause or trigger of periodic paralysis.


Following are the symptoms experienced by a person with Periodic Paralysis:

  • Muscle pain after exercise
  • Tingling sensations
  • Muscle cramping 
  • Permanent weakness in later life
  • Muscle weakness attacks which lasts for a few minutes to days.


This condition is generally difficult to diagnose and patients usually report wrong diagnosis for many years. They used to take such treatment that may even worsen their condition. A patient may feel migraines upto 50% and various symptoms cause an array of confusion such as headaches, visual, sensory, auditory and speech difficulties.  As we read in the introduction that this condition is genetic so we can diagnose it by DNA examination. Another diagnostic test is Electromyography that is to be done after DNA testing for confirming the type of Periodic Paralysis.


As this condition is genetic in nature so as per Ayurveda this condition comes under Beej dushti (vitiation of sperm or ovum). In Ayurveda science of genetics is very well explained by Acharya Charaka and Sushruta. The information given by them makes us very well understand the concept of heredity. According to Acharyas genetic disorders occur due to defects in sperm or ovum of the parents. Acharya Charaka explained the whole genetic under three units that are beej (sperm and ovum), beej bhaag (chromosome) and Beejbhagavyava that is gene. Vikriti of these three leads to various disorders and periodic Paralysis is one among them.

Dosha responsible for Periodic paralysis - This condition is a genetic condition but there must be a dosha predominance in the cause of any disease. In case of Periodic Paralysis there is an aggravation of vata dosha which causes various symptoms of Periodic Paralysis. Vata dosha vitiation causes a defect in signal supply from brain to muscles which affects muscle contraction. If there is no proper muscle contraction it results in various symptoms such as muscle stiffness, muscle spasm and at last muscle paralysis. So to manage these symptoms Ayurvedic management is to be by pacifying vata dosha. For this following are remedies by Planet Ayurveda that assist in managing the condition by pacifying vata dosha.

In this article we are going to discuss one type of Non-allergic Rhinitis that is Gustatory Rhinitis, along with its Ayurvedic view. So let’s have a look!!!!!


Gustatory Rhinitis is a condition characterized by rhinorrhea that is watery, unilateral or bilateral. This generally occurs after eating liquid or solid foods, most commonly spicy and hot. It starts within a few minutes after eating implicated food. This condition is not associated with sneezing, pruritus, facial pain or nasal congestion. This is considered a non-immunological reaction; various investigations show that the condition is generally caused with stimulation of endings of trigeminal sensory nerves that are located at the aerodigestive tract (upper side). This is some brief introduction about Gustatory Rhinitis, let’s see further what are causes and symptoms of this condition.

Gustatory Rhinitis, Runny Nose While Eating


  • Gustatory Rhinitis is one of the types of Non-allergic Rhinitis. 
  • Prevalence of Non-allergic Rhinitis is noticed as 1/3rd of Allergic Rhinitis.
  • The diagnosis of Gustatory Rhinitis totally depends upon clinical examination.  
  • The treatment varies from person to person on the basis of different pathophysiologies.


In case of Gustatory rhinitis, a particular food item plays a role of the irritant, sometimes any food item can be considered as the irritant. Generally the following spicy foods are involved:

  • Black pepper
  • Hot Sauce
  • Curry
  • Chilli Powder
  • Onions
  • Hot Peppers
  • Horseradish

These are some common triggers of gustatory Rhinitis but different people may have different triggers for Gustatory Rhinitis.


There are only few symptoms of gustatory rhinitis, which includes the following:

  • Stuffy Nose
  • Sneezing
  • Runny Nose
  • Postnasal Drip

Symptoms usually seem to be present all around the year but can be worsened with weather changes but this condition can not be seen before adulthood.


The doctor will first of all diagnose the symptoms of non allergic rhinitis that are based on various causes and allergens. This can be diagnosed with step by step examination. First of all the doctor asks a few questions regarding your symptoms and does a physical examination. Then he will recommend some tests for non-allergic rhinitis. If you have nasal congestion, postnasal drip, or a runny nose, your doctor will make sure that you have non-allergic rhinitis. After this the Doctor will refer you for various allergies and tests for sinus problems, to identify underlying causes. For ruling out allergies two types of tests are to be done which includes Skin test and blood test. The Sinus problem can be identified with tests such as Nasal Endoscopy, CT Scan and X-Ray.


Ayurveda is a Holistic science which is based on three dosha, Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Balance of all three doshas is considered as good health. Ayurveda sees a disease in a different kind of view and the line of treatment of diseases is also totally different. As per Ayurvedic view this condition can be considered as compromised immune system that is low Oja dhatu (quantum of immunity) and aggravation of pitta dosha. Other than this there are various agantuk karana (external factors) that play a great role in triggering the Gustatory Rhinitis. Ayurveda believe that the root cause of every disease is improper agni or digestive fire and the same happens in this case also. 

Treatment protocol of Ayurveda started with mild digestion and to promote the digestive fire. After this elimination of aggravated doshas is to be done by giving herbs that promote detoxification. Generally in case of Gastritis mild purgation is to be done for balancing pitta dosha and the next step is to boost up the immune system with various rejuvenating herbs such as Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), haritaki (Terminalia chebula), etc.
