How to Improve Your Life with Well Being Therapy


What is well being?

The importance of it in our lives is something everyone agrees with and it has been a widely discussed topic in the last twenty years. There are many definitions and they all pertain to the quality of life. Well being is generally accepted as a positive outcome where things in life are going well.

 

Well-being is described as the condition of being happy, healthy, successful, content, realizing your potential, coping with stress in life, being productive, contributing to community, calmness, purpose, connection, awareness, self-sufficiency and vitality.

 

Well-being therapy is emotional, mental, physical and intuitive client-based therapy. The goal is to improve well being and improve overall health-mental, physical and emotional.

 

We can improve overall health by taking the first step- assessing where we are at this point in our lives. Well-being is very subjective. One person may require better sleep for their well-being whereas another may require better finances. And it’s usually not just one thing. And for some of us, it is a very long list! What is required for our well being also differs at various times in our lives. What we required in our twenties may differ greatly to what is required for who we are in our fifties. Well being is always something that we can better in ourselves, no matter what our age, financial situation or accomplishments. Accomplishing increased well being never ends. To improve our overall health-mental, physical, emotional and intuitive-we must look at our lives in a very honest way. This is the first – and sometimes most challenging step.

 

In our environment, we should look at the people involved and how they affect our lives. Are they assets or liabilities? The people surrounding us -family, friends, employees, neighbors and co-workers are extremely important to our growth and well being. They can hold us back in life, make our progress difficult and even send us in the wrong direction- further away from our goals. On the other hand, they can be our well-wishers and support our growth and realization of our goals and dreams. Well-wishers are similar to gardeners to our lives and help us flourish. With well wishers, we can achieve our goals so much easier than by doing it alone.

Breast Care With Ayurveda


In today's society where beauty is honored so strongly, this discontent causes many women to look for a way to make their breasts bigger !

 

Many woman unhappy with their breasts for cosmetic reasons. Some complain of tonal loss or sagging, some require enhancement and some reduction. Many woman undergone expensive treatments , some surgical to get back the breast shape. The internet and media is also flooded with claims. Hence In the present article we would shed points on Reasons and Remedies for breast enhancement. Though the information presented here is based on our clinical experience, readers discretion is requested.

 

REASONS FOR COSMETIC ANOMALIES OF BREASTS :-

 

  • Improper selection of brasserie in terms of fitment/size

  • Not wearing brassiere right on onset of puberty

  • Wearing tight bra during bedtime. (this can slow down circulation)

  • Physical exercises (workouts, running, cycling etc) without brasserie

  • Prolonged illness

  • Pregnancy

  • Breast feeding

  • Hormonal imbalance leading to irregular menstrual cycle and other concerned illness

  • Weight gain

  • Sudden weight gain and loss due to crash dieting etc.

  • Sexual intercourse at an early age. [arguable]

  • UNDERSTANDING BREAST DEVELOPMENT AS PER MODERN SCIENCE

 

Breast does not contain any muscle and is largely consisted of a fat tissue known as Adipose tissue intermingled with lactiferous [milk carrying / producing] ducts. Hence merely doing muscle exercises or intake of muscle protein is not going to help in altering the breast tissue. However it may fairly effect the muscle on which the breast lies [Pectoralis group]. The size of breasts is decided by the hormonal apparatus which is unique in each individual and also influenced by genetic. The permutations and combinations of Estrogen, Prolactin and Progesterone with respect to lifestyle and other factors is very consequential in the physical and mental make-up of a woman. Regarding breast size Estrogen influences the lot with high amounts leading to large breasts and vice versa. It is important to understand that beyond cosmetic approach having firm nice shaped breast requires a good hormonal balance which needs to be complemented with good lifestyle and diet.

 

Since Arogyam mostly emphasize on natural methods of Ayurveda and yoga for the purpose , so, here enlisted some other prevalent methods for the purpose for your information. So lets begin

 

YOGIC EXERCISES

The following enlisted Asanas (yogic postures) really help in toning the breast apparatus. However one should understand that not one but a combination of theses postures would help in achieving the desired results. There are no specific Asanas to increase or decrease the size. The Asanas would merely help in achieving firm and healthy breast. Also the Asanas help a long way in regulating hormones and may prevent modern evils of breast cancers. I would not go to the lengths of explaining each and every asanas. You can “google” the names and would get some great illustrations and videos about how to practice them. I would recommend to take the guidance of an expert yoga teacher incase you wish to pursue the techniques. Yogic postures need to be complemented with certain rules of diet, lifestyle and also cleansing methods. Apparently not all yogic postures are safe and one needs to be evaluated to be fit enough to accept a particular asana as per his constitution and health condition. Though while practicing the asanas the main emphasis would be on breast development, these asanas also help in variety of ailments hence research properly and pick the best 1 -2 asanas which would help.



AYURVEDA AND FEMALE INFERTILITY


According to Ayurveda Uterus comprises of three functional layers :

 

Prathamavarta or the first layer consists of Vulva. Dwitiyaavarta or Second layer comprises of Vagina, cervical canal, cervix. The ovaries, fallopian tubes and endometrium forms the innermost third layer or Tritiyaavarta, any abnormality in these functional layers results in gynaecological problems.

 

The root cause of Female Infertility can be either structural or functional anomaly or both.

 

1. Vaginal infections.

 

2. Uterine cavity – Growth, fibroid, malformation.

 

3. Ovaries – PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease), Unovulation.

 

4. Fallopian tubes – Tubal impatency.

 

5. Structural defect.

 

6. Pelvic causes – Endometriosis, Adhesions, Septum.

 

7. Repeated abortions.

 

8. Urinary tract infections.

 

9. Generalised debility.

 

 

Na hi vatat rute yoni narinam sampradushyati ”

 

This explains that uterus and its tissues has the predominance of Apan vayu and its functions are also regulated by the same, hence any imbalance in Apan vayu results in uterine disorders and ultimately is the cause for infertility.

 

Vaginal infection – Vaginal infections if ignored can result in serious issues like eruptive ulcers or erosions in vaginal tract. Presence of leucocytes in mucous indicates infection of Gonnorhoea, Chalmydia trachomatis. Sometimes excessive Pitta and increased heat in body can cause burning sensation, swelling, ulcers, and pain in vagina. Excessive heat in vagina leads to necrospermia. Pain and excessive dryness in vagina, piles, fistula and fissures ultimately causes Dysparunia. The vaginal swelling may sometimes have an internal origin high up in the uterus.

 

Cervix - Position and patency of cervix and the cervical canal plays an important role in conception. The narrow cervical opening causes hinderance in sexual intercourse and thus becomes a cause for infertility. Anteverted or retroverted uterus prevents sperms to reach the uterus. Outgrowths like Cyst, Chocolate cyst or Bartholin cyst, fibroid, etc.

 

Uterine causes - Irregularity, inflammation, adhesions swelling in the endometrial cavity inhibits the implantation of the embryo. Previous D&C, endometrial infections, tumor, fibroid, polyps in the uterus. Malformed, septate uterus, Underdeveloped reproductive organs, smaller uterine cavity are some of the causes.

 

Tubal and Ovarian factors– Salphingitis, adhesions, tubal blocks, unovulation due to hormonal imbalance, irregular menses, PCOD.

AYURVEDA AND INFERTILITY


" Getting pregnant is a natures course, instead of any compulsive or manipulative efforts let nature play its role"

 

GOD is a magnificient creator, He created universe, five elemental forces of Nature which governs the entire universe and many more things beyond our imagination. Admist these various innovations, is the prodigy of Procreation. Procreation in another words, is the desire to reproduce own species through sexual act.

 

The fundamentals in nature, namely Prakriti and Purush acts as driving force, which replicates the Female and Male gender respectively in all Living creatures. This is the cause why sexual act and desire for sex is given so much importance since ages, it is nothing but a sincere Nature’s call.

 

Inability of a woman to concieve or a man to induce conception after one year of regular sexual intercourse without any contraceptive measures or retaining the foetus till the birth is termed as Infertility. The problem may be with the male or female partner, or both. Although many a times only female is held responsible, it is important to know that both man and woman are equally responsible for conception, as conception occurs only after the union of a healthy male sperm and equally efficient female ovum.

 

Essential Factors for conception :

For conception of a healthy foetus, Ayurveda explains four necessary elements :

 

Ritu (Appropriate period for conception) – Here period indicates two things a) Age of both male and female partners, b) Days eligible for conception depending upon ovulation.

 

Kshetra (Seat for conception) – The word Kshetra refers to the Uterus, Uterus should be in healthy state so that it can hold the foetus for upcoming 9 months and provide nourishment and safety.

 

Ambu (Nourishment for concieved foetus) – Ambu means water, here it specifies nourishment to the foetus growing in the womb, this depends upon the generalised nutrition of the mother.

 

Beej - Beej explains the need of competent male sperm and equally healthy female ovum. Both the sperm and ovum is termed as Shukra Dhatu in Ayurveda, meaning the reproductive tissue.

 

Ayurveda explains body is composed of seven Dhatus, of which Shukra dhatu or reproductive tissue is the seventh or last dhatu, hence it has the presence of fractions of all the previous dhatus, and so it has the capability of generating a new tissue (foetus). Healthy Shukra dhatu shows presence of beauty, bravery and valor in an individual. Conception of healthy child depends completely on the health of parental Shukra dhatu, so it must be taken care of.

 

Causes of Infertility :

 

  • Generalised weakness, lack of nutrition.

  • Improper eating habits, eating excessive spicy, oily, salty or unhealthy foods.

  • Sleeping at very late hours, working in extreme hot or cold conditions.

  • Handling too much of stress.

  • Alcohol intake and smoking affects to a great extent.

  • Debility of Shukra dhatu – Reproductive health of an individual depends solely upon the health of Shukra dhatu i.e reproductive tissue, Seminal fluid in males and ovum (Artav dhatu) in females. Also Shukra sthana (site) and its functioning share an equal importance. Shukra sthana in women explains anatomical structure and physiology of the uterus and associated organs.

AYURVEDA TO TREAT COLON CANCER


Classical Ayurvedic texts have several references to cancer. Some terms used to describe the condition are general while others are much more specific.

 

Charaka and Sushruta Samhita (700 BC) both described the equivalent of cancer as granthi (benign or minor neoplasm) and arbuda (malignant or major neoplasm). Both can be inflammatory or non-inflammatory, based on the doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) involved. The term dosha describes the three principles that govern the psychophysiological response and pathological changes in the body. Ayurveda described health as the balanced coordination of these three systems in body, mind and consciousness. The fundamental theory of Ayurvedic treatment is based on restoration of the balance between these three major bodily systems.

 

Herbs :

 

1. Green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols and this is a powerful anti-oxidant. This compound found in large quantities in green tea also helps individuals in inhibiting the formation of cancer cells. Green tea has also found to be very effective in the killing of cancer cells without harming the tissues. The processing involved for making green tea helps in retaining the good elements in it and makes it more beneficial for cancer than the black or the oolong teas. The green tea leaves are fermented and this helps in the retaining of the catechin polyphenols which are the cancer destroying compounds. Recent research conducted by clinical researchers has proved that drinking green tea helps in the killing of the colon tumors in the initial stage. About fifty seven percent of the people who consumed green tea have been found to have been cured from colon cancers, which have been detected in the initial stages. A glass of green tea every day can be consumed by an individual for preventing the spreading of colon cancer.

 

2. Greater celandine is a Chinese traditional herb which can be used by individuals to prevent as well as to cure colon cancer. This herb not only helps in fighting cancer, but also boosts the immune system of an individual. It is also helpful in the treatment of diseases like asthma and atherosclerosis. Scientists have brought forth facts which clearly show that the herb greater celandine helps in starting the process of apoptosis. This is a kind of programmed death of the cells and this process helps in the stopping of the cancer cells from further spreading to other parts of the body of a person. Greater celandine are available as supplements for the consumption of individual.

 

3.This is herb commonly used by the ayurveda practitioners. Ashwagandha is a kind of adaptogen, which increases the resistance to stress and also increases the energy levels of the person. This herb also has been found to boost the immune system of an individual. According to research conducted on the herb, ashwagandha helps in the slowing down of the growth of the cancer cells and also inhibits the growth of tumor cells without harming the good cells. This herb is available in capsules and powdered forms. Before taking the herb, one should consult his doctor as large doses of the herb can lead to feelings of depression in individuals.

 

# For fighting against the problems caused by the colon cancer, an individual must increase his intake of raw vegetables which is also rich in fiber. This will help in eliminating the disease from the colon and restoring the health of the individual. Carrots, potatoes, yams, beans, avocados, guava, kiwi, are useful fruits and vegetables in the flushing out of the cancer causing element in the colon. These fruits and vegetables should be most preferably consumed in their raw form to derive the maximum benefits from them.
