Auto Immune Care

AUTO   IMMUNE   DISEASE   CARE   PROGRAM

Auto = own   &    Immune =  immunity power

                   Auto immune diseases are the diseases in which our own body cells attacks our own healthy tissues.Auto immune diseases arise from an inappropriate immune response of the body against substances & tissues normally present in the body.In other words body actually attacks its own cells.The immune system mistakes some part of the body as pathogen and attacks it.

AUTO   IMMUNE    DISEASES    AND   AYURVEDA-

The concept of Auto Immune Diseases seems to be a ‘never new’ concept for Ayurveda.The basic humoral factors of the body ie. Tri-Doshas(vata,pitta,kapha) which have natural tendancy to invade the tissues of the body ie. Sapta-Dhatus(ras. rakta, mansa, meda, asthi, majja, shukra) which have natural tendancy to resist the invasion; coexists in the same body without attacking each other. But the concept of “Dosha- Dushya Sammurchana” in which the disturbed Doshas invade in its own system ie.Weakned Dhatus- indicate the earliest an oldest explaination of  Auto Immunity.

According to Ayurveda, the body is a single working organization where all the cells ontribute to the performance of this organization.These cells are individuals too.They have all the possibilities to perform all the biological activities on their personal level.(The best example of this is the unicellular animal Amoebae.)This is the commitment of the cells to work together, which maintains the working of the body.

These individual cells are loaded with intelligence and memory too.Once the intelligence and memory is changed due to repetitive mistakes of Diet and Lifestyle, cells starts behaving wrongly and this causes the problems like Auto-Immune Diseases.

This Ayurvedic interpretation of Auto Immunity may not be able to explain the diseases likewisethe modern medical science, but what is amazing is the treatment of Auto Immune Diseases in Ayurveda.This is because the approach only.

CAUSES  OF  AUTO IMMUNE  DISEASES  BY  AYURVEDA

Ayurveda always focuses on the root cause of the disease.According to Ayurveda, health is defined as a state where Tri-Doshas(Bioenergy), Agni(Internal fire), and Sapta-Dhatu are in balance and excretions are in proper order, also Atma(soul), Senses and Mind are in hormony with internal peace.

So the root cause of any disease is the imbalance between Tri-Doshas, Agni and Sapta-Dhatus with disturbed psychology.In Charak Samhita Acharya Charak described many causes which can cause Auto Immune Diseases.Following are the most important ones.

1)VIRUDDHA  AHARA (INCOMPATIBLE DIET)

Crtain diet or its combination which interrupts the metabolism of the tissues, inhibits the process of tissue formation and have opposite properties to the tissues is called as Viruddha Ahara or Incompatible Diet.

Viruddha Ahar is one of the most important causative factor in most of the Metabolic Auto Immune Diseases.

EFFECTS OF VIRUDDHA AHARA.

1)It hampers the Digestion.

2)It produces the endotoxins ie.Ama

3)It can lead to inflammation at molecular level.

4)It can have adverse effects on

Immune System                               Growth Hormone

Cellular Metabolism                        Dehydro epiandrosteron sulphate (DHEAS) etc.

EXAMPLES  OF VIRUDDHA AHARA

Acharya Charak described 18 types of Viruddha Ahara and diseases which it can prodouce.

Fish with milk

Milk with or after breakfast.

Honey with warm water

Honey with Ghee in equal proportion.

Fruits with milk, milk shakes.

Cold water immediately after hot tea , coffee, food etc.

Deep fried potatoes.

Sweet dish after Non-veg food etc.

2)INDIGESTION—AGNIDUSHTI—DISURBED METABOLISM–AMA(ENDOTOXIN)

Agni(internal fire) or the normal metabolism is an essential factor in the maintainance of health and integrity of the body.The same when disturbed given rise to Ama9endotoxin).

Ama is an endotoxin which has a multifactorial origin including disturbed metabolism.It affects all the tissues and makes them susceptible for many disorders.

3)STRESS

Today there is not a single individual who doesn’t have stress.There is different kind of stress in each age group from children to old people.

Stress is often cited as a trigger for many Auto Immune Diseases, Hormanal problems, Metabolic disorders etc.

EFFECTS OF STRESS

1)Stress can cause Hormonal Imbalance

2)Stress can cause Indigestion by disturbing digestive enzyme secretion.

3)Stress can cause Immuno suppression.

4)OJO VISTRANS

Ojus is the essence of all the body tissues.

Deflection of the Ojus from normality and integrity contribute towards manifestation of Auto Immune diseases.

5)FAULTY LIFESTYLE

Our changed, hectic, faulty so called modern lifestyle is one of the most important causes of Auto Immune Diseases.It includes—

UNHEALTHY DIET—-Fast food                               Processed food                               Junk Food

High calory but low nutritional value food

Overuse of salt, colddrinks, fried food, preservstives, maida products, etc.

Considering all the facts, causes of Auto Immune Diseases and after treating so many patients successfully in last 5 years Dr.Kalpesh developed a program called as Auto Immune Disease Care Program which can be applied to each and every Auto Immune Disease with minor changes according to patient’s age,sex and stage of the disease.This program is so developed that each and every patient gets benifited because it is developed on the basis of Basic Principles Of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is very specific in terms of diagnosis and treatment of the disease.And it is very necessary to do proper diagnosis for developing treatment plan.Ayurveda is highly individualised and hence each patient must be approached with thought process unique to his or her environment and protocols are devised likewise.

Dr.Kalpesh has developed a specific protocol for diagnosis of the Auto Immune Disease patient.He used basic Ayurvedic Diagnostic tools and modern diagnostic tools.

2)Shodhan Chikitsa (Panchakarma Therapies)—Detoxification

As per Ayurveda, when the Agni or Metobilism is not okey there will be production and deposition of certain diagnosis(ie.Ama) in the body; which will be responsible for many diseases.When the endotoxins comes in contact with immune cells of the body it results in their abnormal behaviour which cause Auto Immune Disease.

So these endotoxins must be expelled out from the body as early as possible by nearest and easiest ways.It can be achieved by means of certain panchakarma therapies. Eg.Vman, Virechan, Basti, Nasya, Raktamokshan.But the proper selection of the panchakarma therapies is highly specific and depeds on patient’s age,sex and disease stage etc.

3)AGNI RAKSHA—–CORRECTING METABOLISM

As Agni Dushti or disturbed metabolism is the root cause of every disease,it should be corrected so the production of endotoxin is stopped.Only detoxification will not be enough.We should also on the source of toxin production ie.disturbed metabolism.So correcting metabolism is also the main line of treatment of Auto Immune Disease.

4)Ojovruddhi

As Ojus is the essence of all the body tissues which nourishes the immune system and thus helps in improving body defence.Normally it is availed to the body from the food we take.But due to impaired metabolism Ojus is not produced properly in the body.So we should ensure proper supply of the Ojus to the body.This can be achieved by using some medicines and diet are used for this purpose.
