Back Pain :Ayurveda holds that low back pain is a result of vitiation of one of the three principal 'doshas'. 'Kateegraham'/'Prishtasoola' or low back pain is an indication of Vata aggravation and bone and muscle weakness. Treatment in Ayurveda is to bring the vitiated 'dosha' back to the state of equilibrium and thereby to the state of health. For treating low back pain, internal as well as external treatments are done. Herbal preparations like 'Asthavargam' are administered internally. Daily purgation is recommended to restore the vitiated 'dosha' to the state of normalcy.
Low back pain can result due to health problems like osteoporosis, scoliosis, spinal stenosis. Sprain or strain of muscles or ligaments in the area can also manifest in low back pain. Other possible causes include fibromyalgia and beginning or malignant tumours. A fall or blow to the back can strain or tear tissues around the spine, or even break a bone leading to back pain. Lack of exercise or incorrect exercise can also lead to low back pain. Too much weight or overweight also is a cause of low back pain.
Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments like Abhyanga (oil massage), Basti (meditated enema), Elakizhi, Njavarakizhi and Pizhichil etc are very much helpful in relieving backache and correcting abnormalities.
Paralysis :Paralysis is most often caused by damage in the nervous system, especially the spinal cord. Other major causes are stroke, trauma with nerve injury, poliomyelitis, botulism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), bell's palsy, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
The disease has been discussed in Ayurveda under Vata vyadhi disorder. The terms Pakshaghata, Paksha Vadha and Ekanga Vata have been used to describe Paralysis in Ayurveda. Ayurveda has mentioned facial paralysis as a separate disease entity called "Ardita vata".
According to ayurveda Paralysis is caused due to 2 reasons and one is Kevala Vataja and other is Kaphanubhandha which may be due to Clot formation or Heomorrhage.
We provide special treatment for Paralysis, where we treat on the root cause of disease manifestion and not on the symptoms of the disease. We treat also Multiple sclerosis, one side paralysis, Upper motor neuron Leision, TB of spine and brain, genetic disorders, bone and joint disorders, immobility due to tendon-ligament injuries and disorders, traumatic paralysis, facial paralysis and paralytic conditions of all age groups.

All Skin Diseases :According to Ayurveda, the skin has seven layers, located not only superficially but extending to the deeper levels of the body. A skin disease is, mostly, rooted deeply into various dhatus or tissues like fat, muscles, blood etc. Most skin treatments are generally external applications like creams or oils. These, however, never reach the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, the symptoms disappear temporarily, and the disease is not rooted out permanently.
Ayurveda always tries to root out the disease by treating it specifically according to its cause. As the disease is deep-seated it is difficult to fix the problem quickly. Ayurvedic skin treatments may take a few weeks to remove the symptoms but the diseases are treated permanently by doing Udwarthana, Pizhichil, Kashaya Dhara etc, opening up the channels and expelling the metabolic waste through the skin. And also Blood Letting using leech is our speciality to remove the stagnant blood over affected area
Effective treatments are there in our hospital for Lichen Planus, Chronic Eczema, Chronic Urticaria, Acne Vulgaris, Skin Allergy.
Asthma :Asthma is a disease of the human respiratory system in which the airways narrow, often in response to a trigger such as exposure to an allergen, cold air, excessive exercise or emotional stress. This narrowing causes symptoms such as wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and coughing.
Ayurveda regards Asthma as a disorder caused by impaired digestion. A malfunctioning digestive process causes hypersensitivity to certain substances, such as dust and pollen that triggers the asthma attacks. Deposits of ama (mucus) in the lungs and respiratory tract create obstruction in breathing and cause wheezing or coughing.
Ayurvedic treatment of asthma focuses on restoring digestion with herbal preparations and the right diet and lifestyle changes. The medicines primarily work on pacifying Kapha and cleansing toxins from the body. In addition, specific herbal combinations are also supplemented to boost the body's immunity. It also helps in dilatation of bronchioles and strengthening the intercoastal muscles and increases the lung capacity through treatments and exercises which gives a long term cure for these disease.
Treatments for Asthma are Nasya, Vamanam and Virechanam etc..
Arthritis :According to Ayurveda, Arthritis is caused by impaired digestion, due to improper dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle, as well as aggravated Vata Dosha (Ayurvedic humor representing Air). Impaired digestion and irregular bowel movements lead to accumulation of toxins (ama) in the body. This ama, along with the aggravated Vata, gets stored in various joints and leads to stiffness or inflammation and pain.
Arthritis can manifest itself in the form of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Gout, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, and Ankylosing Spondylosis, among other forms. Its symptoms can develop suddenly or slowly, with the most common ones being inflammation of joints, swelling, difficulty and pain in movement, loss of appetite and energy, fever, etc.
The Ayurvedic treatment of Arthritis is focused on uprooting the disease in its entirety and providing a long-term solution, unlike modern medicine, which only works on suppressing the symptoms. In Ayurveda, every patient is recommended a personalized treatment plan, which consists of herbal medicines as well as diet and lifestyle advice.
The main treatments for Arthritis are Podikizhi, Dhanyakizhi and Sarvangadhara etc..
Bone & Joint Disorders :Vata is the main Dosha related to the Bones! There is a lot of Akash Mahabhuta (the ether) in form of the spaces and canals in the bones, and where space there is will be Vata Dosha in the body, because Vata Dosha is a result of Akash and Vayu Mahabhutas. So this is one thing.
Generally as a principle in Ayurveda- when a resident Dosha increases it will directly increase the Dhatu where it is residing for example- when Pitta increases it will increase the Rakta. But in case of the Vata and Bones, it is opposite. Vata increases- bones keep on decaying. So the main cause of a condition like osteoporosis is the Vata increase. This Vata increase might be due to excessive use of the body and too much movement (as it happens in athletes) and it might be as simple as in old age (because by default old age is the period of Vata aggravation).
With joints it is bit different. Joints have a lot of movement so there should be too much Vata and problems should be due to the Vata only. But there is a lot of Kapha (Shleshak Kapha) in form of synovial fluid- which helps to balance Vata in joints because Kapha is quite opposite to the properties of the Vata. Once there will be decay in the synovial fluid in the joints- problems will be aggravated and Vata will cause severe damage. Osteoarthritis is the result of the same condition. These are not only osteophytes in the joints there will be lack of the synovial fluid too in the joints. So Ayurveda has a clear approach towards the treatment of the Bone and Joint problems. We need to maintain the balance the Kapha and Vata Dosha to maintain the harmony in the body. If one of these will be out of balance- there will be certainly some problems with the joints.
Treatment for bone and joint disorders are Elakizhi, Njavarakizhi, Pizhichil etc.
Psoriasis : According to Ayurveda, Psoriasis or Mandal is caused by an imbalance in the Pitta Dosha. Pitta symbolizes fire and is heating in nature; it usually gets imbalanced due to faulty dietary habits and sedentary lifestyles. The imbalanced Pitta manifests in the skin and causes accumulation of ama or toxins. These toxins accumulate in body tissues such as rasa (nutrient plasma), rakta (blood), mansa (muscles) and lasika (lymph) and contaminate them, leading to skin conditions such as Psoriasis.
According to Ayurveda, most skin problems have deep-rooted causes that are often ignored. Therefore, use of local creams or antibiotics can only mask the symptoms; they do not provide long-term relief.
Treatment for Plaque psoriasis, Guttate psoriasis, Inverse psoriasis, Pustular psoriasis, Psoriatic arthritis, Nail psoriasis and Erythrodermic psoriasis are provided at our centre.
The main treatment for Psoriasis are Thakradhara, Virechanam and Pizhichil etc.
Digestive Disorders :The Oriental concept of Ayurveda with its focus on balance and rejuvenation particularly focuses on the significance of the digestive system with regard to the overall balanced functioning of the human body. One of the basic tenets of Ayurveda enshrines the necessity of healthy digestive system as the prerequisite to overall healthiness of the human body and mind.
With its belief that digestive system influences the functioning of circulatory, nervous and skeletal system; the concept rests on the basic principle that weakness in digestive system makes way for corresponding weakness in other organic system. According to Ayurveda consumption of food which is inextricably linked with digestion and its subsequent functioning or malfunctioning, the cause of improper functioning of the digestive system lies in the improper eating habits. Improper or imbalanced indulgence of senses which gives way to wrong eating habits serves to upset the all important digestive structure. Unhealthy eating manners triggered by the wrong use of senses aid to upset the physiological balance. The treatment administered to overcome the symptoms of digestive disorders; includes both symptomatic and asymptomatic treatment seeking to eradicate the underlying cause.
Effective treatment are provided for Gastritis, Ulcer, Hyperacidity, Indigestion/Anorexia, Intestinal Infection, Constipation, Liver Dysfunction, Hepatitis/Jaundice and Piles. Main treatment include Virechanam and Snehapanam.
Cervical Spondylosis :It is a specific form of arthritis, which attacks vertebrae and connecting bony, and ligament structures, is known as Spondylosis. Frequently it occurs in the cervical vertebrae. The spines of majority of people above the age of 50 have certain degree of osteo arthritic changes. But they seldom cause acute symptoms. Certain precipitating factors like trauma, incorrect posture of the body, pressure while sleeping and excessive intake of sour food usually precipitate these attacks.
In ayurveda this condition is known as Griva Sandhigata Vata. This condition is more classically seen in people with sedentary habits especially those who tend to do a lot of work sitting on a chair in a bent down posture, or practice a semi erect posture l- half erect and half lying producing undue strain on the vertebral column.
Any external massage is not of much use. Violent massage with deep pressure is very harmful for the patient. Only gentle massage over the muscles of the neck and shoulder joints should be applied which is directed outwards that is from the neck towards the shoulders.
Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments like Abhyanga (oil massage), Basti (meditated enema), Elakizhi, Njavarakizhi and Pizhichil etc are very much helpful.
Headache, Stress & Strain :The traditional science of Ayurveda considers headache to be caused because of two primary reasons – a sensitive nervous system and impaired digestion. Improper diet and lifestyle causes aggravation of Pitta (Ayurvedic humor representing Fire) in the body. In an aggravated state, Pitta impairs digestion, leading to production of digestive impurities (known as ama). This ama gets stored in the manovahi strotas (mind channels), thereby becoming the cause for headaches.
A sensitive nervous system lowers the ojas (energy) in the body. Ojas is the essence of all body tissues and provides strength to the nervous system and body. If you have a strong nervous system, you are able to fight against problems and carry on with your work with a healthy mind. Lowering of ojas causes migraine-like problems.
Ayurvedic treatment of headache does not focus on simply alleviating the pain but aims at treating the root cause. Herbal preparations are administered to balance aggravated body energies and restore the digestive function.
Treatments like Nasya, Shirodhara, Thalapothichil, Siro Vasthi etc are very effective.
Rejuvenation Therapy & Weight Reduction :Rasayana Chikilsa means 'Rejuvenation', this Ayurvedic treatment aims at achieving vitality and a healthy life. The underlying theory behind this treatment is to reverse the degenerative processes taking place in the body. This is achieved by bringing about a balance of the body, mind and soul through rejuvenating the functional systems of the body. The treatment claims to retard the process of aging hence it's the ideal package for those who want to look and feel young and healthy.
Ayurveda considers excessive weight as a disease and has a methodical approach to weight management and reduction. The program consists or a restructuring of diet and a combination of massages and oral medications.
