    • Your back pain seems to be little complicated from the history. You need to see a doctor with your reports. If you are in Delhi, I can examine you and suggest possible treatments.

  2. Dear Dr. Ramesh PR
    Thank you for being there.
    I’m 70, experiencing pain around left hip/buttock. Thinking it’s about arthritis and
    /or sciatica. I practice yoga daily. Sitting is becoming increasingly difficult.
    Any suggestions would be most welcome.

    • You are 70 year old. Naturally we need to expect degenerative changes in bones and muscles which may induce pain. General investigations like simple X-ray may reveal degenerative changes. However, simple application of warm oil like Mahanarayanathailam and fomentation can be tried.Pressure applied massage is not recommended. If there is no relief, consult a physician and do proper treatment.

      Reply
      • Appreciate the assessment and suggestions.
        Will start with the warm Mahanarayanathailam

    • The best treatment for hypothyroidism is regular Pranayam. Bastrika, Kapalbhati etc. Kanchanaraguggulu 1 tab twice daily after food with warm water may be taken. Do this and observe the results.

  4. Respected Doctor,

    3 or 4 years back I suffered from dengue and after that I am continuously (after few months) suffering from fever.

    In Dec 2015 I got typhoid and platelet counts go down. So I treated myself and OK. After this I was feeling very weak.

    Now again I got fever nearly 104° and my platelets counts again fall down to 70000 and I was admitted to hospital and started my treatment. Now i am OK but some weakness is there and I have continuous head ache all day, my head feels very heavy, I tested my eyesight but it is ok. Head ache was there in last year also.

    Also, one year before i have donated platelets to the needy and problem started thereafter (maybe).

    I feel weakness and head ache. My immune system has became very week.
    So please doctor help me suggest some ayurvedic medicine or diet.

    Thanking You!

    • After the attack of viral fever, platelet count depletes and joint swelling and pain occurs in many number of cases. Drink lots of fluid which help the body to eliminate the virus and it’s toxins from our body. Take Anar, Anjeer and Khajur every day to improve platelet count.

      Indukantabm kashayam 15 ml with 45 ml water and 2 tabs of Agnikumararasam twice daily before food also helps to improve the quality of life by improving your immunity.

  6. Sir,

    04 years back i got chronic vomiting after eating soyabean at night. And after i was not able to eat fats, proteins, fast food, spicy food etc, my body and eyes gets warm and weak. All test came ok except LFT in which bilirubin was 4 and doctors gave 1 month medicine for jaundice and later told it is hereditory as blood reports were ok. I changed my diet and after 1 year i was able to eat fats and proteins and with in the span of 2-3 years body healed upto some extent without medicine but i took some herbal teas and home remedies. REcently, i used sesame oil in cooking and same problems started again and mind was disturbed badly (esp. in evening). These 04 years food allergies got solved but i was getting excessive hunger after 2-30hours of food.

    NOw, again all test came okay and i asked doctor that i would like to go for endoscopy and result came Reflux with bile gastritis. It was from the past 04 years which may have caused due to chronic vomiting.

    My mind problem got lessened by taking soaked monaqa (sweet raisin) after dinner and taking banana and fig after breakfast. Doctor gave antacid, stomach medicine and udiliv for 02 weeks.

    Please suggest which treatment shall i opt in this problem as in 04 years it might caused more inflammation of stomach.

      3.Mahadhanwantaram 2 tabs may be taken when ever there is acidity.

      Totally avoid all kinds of masala, chillies, garlic, Ginger and tamarind in your diet. Use jeera power , dhaniya- coriander powder and tomatoes for taste.

        Thank you very much for the review. I am following your advice and going to see a physician soon and will take the medicine and will give a feedback after my observations.

        Meanwhile, i already stopped antacid which was giving gas problems and i added licorice tea in breakfast and dinner before food which helped a lot. banana, Munaqa and raisins helped in weakness created by licorice tea. NOw, i will try your given medicine alone. Just wanted to share with you.

      • Respected Doctor,

        I have taken your prescribed medicine for 15 days. Medicine was curing to some extent but jeera water was creating drying of throat in excess and then I started taking with plain water.

        I went to see senior physician at AVS coimbatore. She has prescribed Shankha bhasma and Gorochanadi gulika (02no’s. each) on empty stomach in morning and evening and Parushakadi leham after food.

        I am taking this medicine for month and health is improving but slowly.

        I have been transfered to Punjab and i can’t see coimbatore phsician again. Kindly, give personal consultation for further treatment.

        Thanks & Regards,

            I discontinued shankha bhasma, gorochanadi and parushakadi Lehman. Medicine didn’t do any much effect after 50 days. My body couldn’t digest medicine empty stomach.

            Now, I am taking your prescribed medicine. Though I am not taking parushakadi Lehman on empty stomach.

            I am taking Avipathi choornam 03 grams after lunch and dinner with warm water. And it had done wonder within 02 days. My anxiety, burning sensation went away. Food allergies also reduced and earlier empty stomach I have to be very cautious about food which also reduced.

            From past 10 days, I am taking avipathi choornam. How long shall I continue and any other precaution to be taken.

Kindly use it for a month and stop it. It may be used afterwards as and when required.

  7. Hi

    My mother of 62 years identified some guilty in her right breast and on investigations it come out as tumor of cancerous nature and doctors advised to remove it so we went for complete breast removal, now doctors are asking for chemo, target and hormonal therapy, we want to avoid it and looking for any alternative treatment, so please advise

    Reply
    • If the disease has not been spread to other areas of body, Ayurvedic treatment can be tried for preventing it’s further spread. If secondaries are detected and if they are in the initial stages, conventional treatment like chemotherapy and radiation my be helpful for quick recovery. If you prefer to do Ayurvedic treatment, personal consultation with an Ayurvedic physician is essential before starting the treatment.

    • Greetings. Generally the response of Ayurvedic treatment in leucoderma cases are good if you address it before one year from the onset of the disease. However, it’s better to consult a physician before starting any internal medicines. Kayyanyadi kerathailam may be started using for external application twice daily for 10 minutes and exposure to sunlight would be ideal.

    Reply
    • Received your mail with thanks. Having carefully gone through the provided details, we regret to inform you that we do not have a curative line of treatment to deal with multiple sclerosis. We have seen some favorable changes in a fair number of cases by regular long-term medication. As there is individual variation in the response to the treatment, we are not in a position to predict anything regarding the outcome and duration of the treatment. We have to do the treatment and observe the response closely. We shall certainly be pleased to do everything possible within our limit leaving the rest to the will of Providence.

      The possible course of Ayurvedic treatment in this case consists of appropriate oral medicine, external medicine applications and repeated courses of intensive treatment such as Pizhichil, Navarakkizhi, Sarwang Dhara and Vasti. The modalities of the treatment can be decided only after examining the patient in person. A minimum period of 14 days will be required to complete one course of indoor treatment.

    • Schizophrenia is not a completely curable condition. But improvement in quality of life has been observed in many number of cases. But as individual variations are there, we cannot predict and do the treatmet. If you are interested, you may visit Arya Vaidya Sala, hospital at Karkardooma and meet any doctor who is sitting in the OPD. We are keeping a first come first serve system in OPD and hence no appointment is required and the consultation is free of cost. Our OPD timings are between 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM & 2:30 to 5:30 PM on all 6 days of a week except Friday. Thanking you and assuring you of our best services

      • Hello Doctor,
        My mother was diagnosed with Schizophrenia 8 years back. She was treated and was under continuous medication since then. The tablets she was consuming was no more manufactured as a result(we suspect) she had recurrence of the disease. Its been 6 months that we are seeing the symptoms again. She is again put on new medicine but we are noticing her mental health going to the 8 years back state. I want to know if Ayurveda can help . Can Ayurveda treatment can go hand in hand with the Allopathy treatment that she is currently undertaking. Can you suggest doctor/hospital in Kerala where she can be treated.

        Thanks,

In chronic cases, you may have to consult with an experienced Ay.physician and start medicines complimenting the ongoing modern medicine treatment initially. Later by observing the response more ayurvedic therapies like panchakarma may be incorporated as we have observed positive changes in many number of cases.

Minimise food made out of refined flours like roti, rice, potatos, sooji, maida, etc. Increase vegetables, fruits and pulses in diet.

    • You are very young and you need be dependant on any medicine initially. Try drinking plenty of water, include plenty of vegetables and fruits in your diet and have proper physical activities like walking half an hour every day.If needed you may try Triphala churnam 5 gm mixed with warm water at bed time.Try to maintain regular food timings also. This would be helping you to relive constipation. Once constipation is relieved, you may get relief in your giddiness also. For giddiness, try to do deep, relaxed breathing for 15 minutes every day. if not getting relief, you may have to consult a good physician.

There are many medicines in Ayurveda, which can compliment the present medication.

    • Hernia is basically , a surgical case, which generally can be done with a simple procedure. You may try to apply Dhanwanthara Thailam on the bulged area and very gently massaged in order to improve the muscle strength. In many number of cases, this has helped to improve the condition. The oil may be warmed before application. This may be tried for a period of 3 to 4 weeks and observe the results. If this is not helping, surgery would be the only option.

    • Getting bowel movement with a cup of tea is not a bad thing. It happens in many number of cases, to have some hot liquid in the morning to get a clear bowl movement. Diet on time with adequate fibre (Vegetables and fruits etc), proper regular physical activity like walking and drinking adequate water would generally help to get a regular, satisfactory bowel movement. Thriphaladi Choornam 5gm mixed with warm water may be taken orally at bed time for 2 to 3 weeks to regularize the bowel movement. Later it may be stopped and diet life style changes may be followed to regularize the bowel movement.
