Allergy -that makes you sick?

Most of the time, we are not aware about the cause of certain diseases or sickness. Earlier people were not aware about allergies. But now a day it is a common among all generations. Due to pollution and our life style we are more vulnerable to allergies.  Most of the people complain that they are allergic to dust, metals, feathers of birds, pollen-grains, certain smells, soap, and strong perfumes.  Somebody from younger generation may also say that he is allergic to girls (!)  …Allergy is very gigantic term.

What is allergy?
·          Anything that irritates us, when it comes in contact with our body in any way either by inhalation or by skin contact and shows some adverse symptoms is the allergy.
·         Common symptoms of any allergy are running nose, skin irritation (rash) that can cause scratching, block nose, watering eyes etc.
·         In severe allergic conditions breathlessness, diarrhea, vomiting symptoms related to heart can be present. These should be diagnosed and treated by doctor.

Common allergies...
·         We will focus today only on more common allergies like dust allergy which results often running or blocked nose, headache, watering eyes.
·         As per the Ayurveda, behind any diseases or symptom there is cause. Very strong cause.
·         That cause should be identified, it can be decreasing immunity, abnormal behaviour of body (vikrut dosawastha,virrudha aacharan i.e. vihar)
·         The best way to fight with the allergy is to improve the immunity. Good eating and healthy habits will improve the immunity.  
·         Secondly we should improve the capability of nose, (bala of Nasa  (nose). You can use the panchendriya vardhan oil.
·         You also can use doshanashak and shrotovardhk medicines like Yashtimadh, shatawari, sitopaladi churna etc.
·         Make your life style healthy. Good exercise, healthy food and relaxed life will help you to make your life easy.

Ayurved- The perfect partner

Our lifestyle has seen tremendous changes. Everything is available on the tip of a finger. Everybody is busy, running in the race of life. We do not even have a time to think about our health. Typical person wake up early in the morning, takes breakfast in the office, take lunch in cafeteria and enjoys parties at night. He has found the solution to manage his life in smoking and drinking alcohol. Stress, tensions are bringing diseases and we are ignoring the fact.

And you know the consequences. Heart trouble, diabetics, kidney failure, and so on….small diseases like acidity, headache slowly destroying your body.

My purpose to start this blog is to provide solutions, remedies on day to day health issues; from simple headache to heart trouble and from stress to solutions.

I have started my general practice 12 years back. Ayurveda is my passion and I occasionally also take help of allopath.

Please feel free to raise your queries.

So… see you soon….
