Chronic wide spread pain for more than 3 months along with fatigue and disruption to the sleep with or without an association with a disease (Medical or neurological) condition is considered as fibromyalgia. Often associated with co-morbidities such as anxiety and depression.

Fibromyalgia is a diagnosed as diagnosis of exclusion, means rule out other conditions are co-existed or leading up to fibromyalgia. However, it can be diagnosed predominantly though clinical diagnosis only, one among the many criteria’s are 1990 American College of Rheumatology fibromyalgia Diagnostic Criteria, which states that having more than 11 tender points of 18 fibromyalgia associated localized areas of pain, pain- affected areas among all four regions of the body and the axial skeleton for more than 3 months duration can be diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

Exact cause for the fibromyalgia is still unknown, its been predicted that alterations in the pattern of sleep and changes in neuroendocrine transmitters such as serotonin, substance P, growth hormone and cortisol suggest the regulation of the autonomic, neuro-endocrine system appears to the basis of the syndrome.

It is divided in to two different types, primary and secondary. Primary is not associated with any identifiable underlying condition, secondary associated with an underlying condition may have triggered the disordered pain, which does not explain the patients symptoms.

Central disorder of pain sensation, increases with age, predominantly happens in women. Presented along with symptoms of TMJ and IBD, increase levels of substance P in CSF, gene alterations serotonin and catecholamine’s.

“Waste basket diagnosis” is the perfect term we can use in finding the diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

Clinical Symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Paraesthesias
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Morning stiffness
  • Autonomic dysfunction
  • Foggy brain (Fibro fog)

The role of HPA axis (Hypothalamic pituitary axis) is critical in stress adoption, in fibromyalgia this response is disturbed and leads to increased stress and pain. Hence, it is presented with psychiatric co-morbidities.

Nevertheless, the approach to manage this condition needs a multidisciplinary approach.

What Ayurveda can offer?

Inflammation of bursa,.

What is Bursa?

Bursa is a fluid filled sac that reduces the friction between two surfaces, such as bone and ligament or tendon and bone.

It is expected to have more than 160 bursas in the human body.

What causes the inflammation of bursa?

Most common cause for bursitis are local trauma (Direct Injury), fall on the joint, overuse injury, sports injury, excessive kneeling, leaning on the elbows for longer period of time while working at a desk.

Other systemic diseases such as RA, SLE and Gout will cause chronic and recurrent bursitis.

Infections are another important cause for the acute and chronic bursitis, can be from haematogenous spread infections from Staphylococcus aureus or other pathogens, most commonly happens due to puncture (transcutaneous) or micro trauma , less commonly due to haematogenous spread which is called as septic bursitis.

Crystalline deposits will cause bursitis in Gout.

Different types of bursitis

Most common type of bursitis is Sub acromion bursitis, which occurs at the shoulder joint, involves supra supinates muscle.

Other types of bursitis are:

Pre-patellar Bursitis (House maids knee) occurs just above the knee due to the inflammation of patellar bursa.

Infra-patellar Bursitis (clergyman’s knee) inflammation of one or more infra patellar tendons due to repetitive strain injuries

Trochanteric Bursitis causes pain on the lateral aspect of hip.

Olecranon Bursitis (Students Elbow) pain in the posterior aspect of elbow, due to constant kneeling on the joint, also happens in most computer bound sitting jobs.

Pes Anserine Bursitis happened between skin and patella, most often occurs in Obese people or in severe degenerative arthritis condition.

Most of the times the inflammation occurs due to recued subcutaneous fat and increased susceptible for direct injury.


Due to the above-mentioned reasons, there will be increased fluid secretions from synoviocytes or increased inflammation.

With the persistent inflammation there will be increase in the inflammatory cytokines, proteases, cyclooxygenases, or sodium or ureate crystals deposits may occur at the site.


Predominantly the diagnosis happens clinically by physical examination.

Physical examination may reveals that pain, swelling, local redness, aberrations, contusion, and reduced range of motion.

In septic bursitis is suspected with systemic issues such as fever or altered inflammatory markers, need for arthrocentesis / aspiration for the identification of specific bacteria is warranted most commonly performed in shoulder and knee joints.


Most common treatments include RICE

  • Rest
  • Ice application
  • Compression
  • Elevation
  • Local Steroid Injections
  • Finally surgical correction may include bursectomy.

Ayurvedic Treatments:

Bursitis can be treated as generalized inflammation  by using some of the treatments such as valuka swedam or lepam or Dhara based on the presentation.

If there is reduction of subcutaneous fat; need for local Dhara treatment will be very effective.

If the Burs is intact with increased inflammation need for upanaha and lepa treatments.

Clinically best treatment for bursitis is valuka swedam., where we use herbs as such as rasandhi with sand- made in in to poultice, warm poultice will be applied gently on the joint for a period of time will give significant changes in pain and inflammation.

Plantar fasciitis (PF) is one of the most common lesion that presents as heal and ankle pain. Nearly 15 % of these patients require a professional care. The intensity of the pain aggravates with weight bearing activities, obesity and increased activity.


The plantar fascia is a thickened fibrous aponeurosis that originates from the medial tubercle of the calcaneus, runs forward to inset into the deep, short transverse ligaments of the metatarsal heads, dividing into 5 digital bands at the metatarsophalangeal joint. The fascia is made of 3 parts, which are medial, central and lateral bands. Among them the central fascia is the thickest and strongest part, this is the most common part that involved in recurrent injury and leads to plantar fasciitis. The diagnosis is mainly based on the patient’s history and clinical examination, further investigation is rarely needed.


Intrinsic factors such as increased BMI and age, reduced ankle dorsiflexion, seronegative arthritis and spondyloarthropathies and pes planus (Flat foot) and pes cavus incresesd curvature of the foot.

Extrinsic factors

Increases high intensity training activities, training errors, inappropriate running techniques, prolonged walking on hard surfaces, inappropriate shoes, increased weight bearing activities

Traumatic factors

Sudden forcible load and plantar fascia and repetitive injury.

PF is considered as a degenerative tissue condition and inflammation of fascia at the tuberosity of the calcaneus. Small tears of the fascia and surrounding tissue are replaced by angiofibroblastic hyperplastic tissue. The lesion sites do not show inflammatory cell invasion with scar tissue and fibrosis are one of the main histological features of PF.


The predominant treatment is NASIDS, resting and cold compression treatment, seeing podiatrists to find the right shoes and techniques, doing physiotherapy treatments will strengthen the movements and strengthen the local area and prevent further injury, Finally the use of steroidal injections at the site.

Use of injectable platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the chronic cases of PF, it is a biological treatment that initiated and promotes natural healing and allows for direct repair of the damaged tissue without the associated risks of surgery. It can be rich in transforming growth factor; vascular endothelial growth factor and platelet-derived growth factor. The PRP has some anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory cytokines and interleukins such as IL4, IL 8 and IL 13 and Interferon –alpha and tumor necrosis factor.

The combination of these growth factors and anti-inflammatory components is necessary to initiate the healing stage and to reverse the degenerative process at the base of the plantar fascia.


PF is a common and degenerative condition that has significant burden on the day-to-day life; require often a multi- disciplinary approach to get better. That may often include using NSAID’s and Steroidal injections and using of PRP injections are still under the evaluation. There is  a need for further research is warranted.

Ayurvedic Treatment Approach:

The heal pain and heal spur is considered as vatakandaka, this condtion results due to Kapha and vata vitiation. According to Ayurveda classical texts this condition is treatable, the aggravation of vata and kapah leads to the persistent inflammation and pain. By avoiding the vata aggravating activities such as long standing habits, excess exercise, bare foot walking, lack of proper sleep, mental stress etc., use of very gentle activity and using warm oil self massages may help prevent the further damage.

Some of the Ayurvedic Treatments may be helpful:

  1. Abhyangam: Regular massage with oils that are indicated
  2. Dry poultice massage with  valuka or ishtika swedam
  3. Internal medicines such as anti-inflammatory herbs
  4. Panchakarma / Detox to prevent further degenerative changes
  5. Specific Detox treatments such as Virechana karma ( Purgations) and Matra vasti (Oil enema) to prevent further aggravation of VATA.

Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes in Children


Obesity and DM in children is one among the complex presentations and management during the child hood.  Obesity is constantly growing. It is presented as worldwide problem both in adults and children. The complexity of the disease and its presentation makes more difficult to manage, as the multiple risk factors come in to play with obesity. Recently, along with adult obesity rates the child hood obesity rates are rapidly growing and increasing the global burden of the disease. Approximately one third of children in U.S are overweight and obese, which in turn increases the risk of obesity as an adult.


One third of children in the US are overweight or obese with approximately 17% obese. Worldwide approximately 43 million preschool children are estimated to be overweight and obese and 92 million are considered to be at risk of overweight and its complications such as diabetes, metabolic disorders, sleep apnea and psychological issues.  One of the major contributors for increasing the obesity rates among the children is due to lack of physical activity, not following dietary recommendations, sedentary lifestyle and behavioral issues. However, obesity has been related to the genetics, environment, metabolism, behaviors, and personal history of obesity, culture and social factors.

With huge increase in the child hood obesity rates, the obesity associated diseases such as Diabetes also on the rise. Type 2 DM in young adults also been diagnosed more frequently, especially among low income and ethnic minority groups. The prevalence of obesity in US (2015) adults was 38%, over all prevalence among adult’s ages 40-59 was 42.8%, which is higher than young adults population group aged between 20-30 was at 35.7%. There is no significant difference between adult’s aged 60 and over (41%) and to the younger age group.

Obesity among 2-19 years of age was 18.5% between 2015-2016, which is constantly growing and directly related as the one of the major risk factors for the adult obesity and other related conditions such as Diabetes.  Obesity is defined as having excess of body weight caused by a chronic caloric imbalance with more calories being consumed than expected.

Type II DM has greatly increased during the recent decade, the incidence of DM in children and adolescents range form 1-51 per 1000 depending on the ethnic group. Especially, the prevalence rates are high among North-American Indians and lowest among non-Hispanic white youth and highest among Native Americans.

BMI (Body mass index) measured to use the classification on obesity among children as overweight or obese. As per the CDC based on BMI 85% are having obesity whereas, 95% was diagnosed with Obesity.


Many factors such as genetics, ethnic minority group, low socio-economic status, behavioral factors such as lack of physical activity and barriers to healthy diet are consider to be the factors responsible for the Obesity and DM. Predominantly, early risk factors for metabolic syndrome including high leaves of BMI, Insulin, glucose and triglycerides, eating more saturated fats, and SBP, LDL and Serum Cholesterol are known to be the major contributors to the obesity.


The US Preventive and Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended in 2010 that children be screened for obesity by the age of 6 years and if they meet the criteria they should be offered moderate to intense (25 hours or more) physical activity, diet and behavioral treatments. However, given the fact that obesity in children at the age of 5 predicts the later life obesity, obviously screening needs to be initiated earlier.

The treatment approaches may include: Family based behavioral lifestyle intervention, internet- delivered interventions, and residential interventions, medical interventions and school based interventions.  Adult obesity medical therapies are including Metformin, orlistat (Serious GI side effects) and Bariatric Surgery.

Netra tarpana treatment


The Head (Siraha or Uttamanga) is one among the prime organ of the body, where brain is seated along with all the sense organs (Indriyas), which perceives all the sensory information and interpreted. Among them eyes (NAYANA) considered to be most vital and useful for the perception of visual information, as per AYURVEDIC MEDICINE it is predominated by alochaka Pitta (A sub type of pitta), often subjected to strained due the increased screen times like watching computer, televisions and phones. Due to which the burden on the vision is greatly increased and caused enormous amount of the damage.

Certain conditions associated along with aging, repetitive eye strain through years of work and so forth can irritate or strain the eye/s to the extent they need further intervention to be able to maintain the healthy function.

Netra Tarpana is the Ayurvedic treatment in such cases.

It is used in cases where the patient is:

  • Suffering eye strain
  • There is a stiffness/rigidity within the eye movements
  • The eyes are excessively dry
  • Suffering eye injury
  • Certain Vata Pittaja diseases are causing problems within the eyes
  • Has abnormal deviations of the eye
  • Eye lashes falling often into the eyes
  • Cellulitis
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Dirtiness within the eyes, possibly from work conditions
  • Glaucoma
  • Hyperaemia of the conjunctiva
  • Atrophy of the cranial nerves
  • To pacify irritation, soreness, redness or tearing within the eyes themselves.

What is Netra Tarpana?

Netra (eye) and Tarpana (nourishment) is directly treating the eye with nourishing therapy. A dough is made that is appropriate (sticky enough but gentle enough) for the face and gently made into a bowl like shape around the eye. Ghrita (medicated Ghee) is then warmed and then placed over the eyes contained within the dough bowl and the patient is to preform eye movements and blinking.

Contraindications of Netra Tarpana:

  • On cloudy, excessively hot or cool days
  • A patient who is excessively worrying
  • A patient who is physically exhausted
  • A patient experiencing vertigo or dizziness
  • If the patient’s symptoms worsen or do not improve with the treatment

How was Netra Tarpana performed on the day?

Items Required:

  • A bowl to make the special dough, it needed to be stickier and looked smoother than a standard type of Vasti for the body. The flour of wheat flour/black gram and hot water.
  • Heating device, a double boiler (with water bath in the bottom) and Triphala Ghrita (Ghee medicated with Triphala) to prepare and heat the Ghrita as required.
  • Cloths, towels, tissues: for patient modesty and cleaning as is required
  • Cotton balls: to put the Ghrita into the Basti.
  • A clean spoon: for distribution of the Ghrita.
  • The dough needed special preparations compared with the basti/vasti of the body. It is made from a grain mixture of whole wheat/black gram/pulses and hot water is used to construct the dough. It is then carefully molded around both eyes and across the nose bridge. Water is then used to make a seal on both inner and outer walls by gently bringing down a small amount of the dough onto the patient.
  • When the eye basti are complete, and Ghrita is sufficiently warmed (it is not made too warm/hot) the patient was asked to test with his little finger the temperature. Then a cotton bud was used to wipe a layer of the Ghrita over the patient’s eyes and then slowly, gently cotton balls were used to gently drip the warm Ghrita across the eyes. When a sufficient amount was administered (covering the eyes enough so when the patient’s eyes were opened they were immersed in the Ghrita), the patient was asked to slowly blink, and then move his eyes up and down and side to side. (It was necessary at times to push the Basti towards the patient’s eyes at the top of the bowl to ensure complete immersion at times). When the Ghrita had lost its warmth, the Ghrita was removed slowly by daubing gently with cotton balls and returning it to the upper bowl above the water bath. It was reheated and re-administered the same way three times at 10-minute intervals.
  • After the last of the Ghrita was removed, and cloths and towels were used to help clean the skin of the upper face, the patient was instructed in his own time to sit up. Practitioner then examined the patient and decided to have him lie back down and used saline to flush his eyes as it brought out quite a lot of redness and inflammation. After about 10 minutes the patient was fine to sit up and move around again.

Hay Fever: Homeopathy - Jeeva Health

Hay fever is the common name for a condition called allergic rhinitis, which means an allergy that affects the nose. Hay fever is an allergic reaction to environmental allergens such as pollens, dust mite, molds and animal hair.

Some of the symptoms include:

  • sneezing
  • a runny or stuffy nose
  • itchy ears, nose and throat
  • red, itchy or watery eyes
  • headaches

Homeopathy is one of the most popular systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat hay fever or allergic rhinitis but to cure its underlying cause.

Hay fever may just occur on its own, but I think the reasons it comes on at dif¬ferent times for different people is inter¬esting and not really easily explained. There was improved quality of life and reduction of conventional drugs in allergic patients treated with homeopathy.
