THE AYURVEDIC WAY
The autoimmune disease represents a family of at least 80 illnesses that share a common pathogenesis, that is, an immune-mediated attack on the body's own organs. According to Ayurveda, autoimmune disorders are a result of a constantly unhealthy lifestyle and diet. Ayurveda works at the root cause of the disease where it starts treating the malfunctioning immune system
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: -
Multiple sclerosis is a long-lasting (chronic) disease of the central nervous system. It is thought to be an autoimmune disorder, a condition in which the body attacks itself by mistake. MS is an unpredictable disease that affects people differently. Some people with MS may have only mild symptoms. Others may lose their ability to see clearly, write, speak, or walk when communication between the brain and other parts of the body becomes disrupted.
“Avrutha” is the term for Multiple sclerosis in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, Multiple sclerosis can be caused due to accumulation of Pitta and Kapha dosha. Pitta dosha can cause serious damage to myelin membranes that are the main cause of Multiple sclerosis.
RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS: -
Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease, which means that your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake, causing inflammation (painful swelling) in the affected parts of the body.
Amavata is a disease in which vitiation of Vata Dosha and accumulation of Ama take place in joints, which simulates rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in modern parlance. Ama is a maldigested product, which is not homogeneous for the body
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease. In this disease, the immune system of the body mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs. In Ayurveda, there are three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) that are responsible for systemic lupus erythematosus. Mainly Vata dosha is aggravated by this disease. The dhatus that are disturbed in this disease are Tweak, Ras, Rakta, & Mansa. When the doshas are aggravated, it causes vitiation of Agni (body fire) & leads to ama (toxins) formation. These aggravated doshas carry the ama and other doshas into ras & rakta dhatu which ultimately leads to the formation of SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus).
CELIAC DISEASE: -
Celiac disease is a chronic digestive and immune disorder that damages the small intestine. The disease is triggered by eating foods containing gluten. Gluten is a protein found naturally in wheat, barley, and rye, and is common in foods such as bread, pasta, cookies, and cakes. In Ayurveda, celiac disease can be correlated to Grahani. It is caused due to functionally weak digestive fire that is Agni which causes improper digestion of ingested food.Book An Appointment
