Three Common Problems Ayurveda Can Tackle

Three Common Problems Ayurveda Can Tackle

by Kottakkal Support October 02, 2020

Chronic fevers, high blood pressure and acid reflux are common problems that people all around the world often face. Ayurveda has several ways to help with these issues.

Chronic Fever

A fever (pyrexia) could be considered any body temperature above the normal temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (98.6 F or 37 C). Medically, a person is not considered to have a significant fever until the temperature is above 100.4 F (38.0 C).

Most fevers are beneficial, causes no long-term problems, and helps the body fight off infections. The main reason to lower a fever is to increase comfort.

Fevers are the result of an immune response by your body to a foreign invader. Foreign invaders include viruses, bacteria, fungi, drugs, and other toxins.

Kottakkal products to help fever
  • Amrita Arishtam - Amrita Arishtam lowers chronic fever, as well as relieving fatigue and body ache.

  • Sitajvarari Kwatham - Sitajvarari Kwatham is useful for sudden acute fever, rhinorrhea (runny nose from cold or flu), throat congestion, and body ache.

  • Vilwadi Gulika - Vilwadi Gulika helps to lower mild fevers associated with digestive upset, diarrhea, and malabsorption.

 High blood pressure

High blood pressure, also known as high blood pressure, is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. High blood pressure typically does not cause symptoms. Long-term high blood pressure, however, is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease, vision loss, chronic kidney disease and dementia. 

Kottakkal products to help high blood pressure
  • HT KOT - promotes cardiac health and cardiovascular functions. It also helps to reduce nervousness and anxiety. It’s made of three ingredients, Jatamansi, Sarpagandha and Rudraksha.
  • Arjuna Arishtam - helps with cardiac and pulmonary diseases. Dhanwantaram gulika can also be taken with it as per the advice of a doctor.
Acid Reflux

The food we eat goes into our stomach through the esophagus. The gastric glands in your stomach create acid, which is necessary to digest the food. When the gastric glands create more acid than needed for the digestion process, you tend to feel a burning sensation below the breastbone. This condition is commonly called acidity as well as acid reflux.

Acid reflux is a condition that is characterized by heartburn that is felt around the lower chest area. It is a common condition that occurs when stomach acid flows back up into the food pipe. The most common acid reflux symptom is a burning sensation in the chest, and pain. While most people suffer in pain, they do not realize that poor lifestyle choices are the main reason behind acidity. If not treated properly it may damage the esophagus, increase the risk of esophagus cancer and wear down the enamel of your teeth and lead to cavities. 

Kottakkal products to help acid reflux
  • Avipathi Churnam - is a safe purgative in bilious diseases and habitual constipation.
  • Parushakadi Leham - is useful in acidity control and acid peptic disorders.

Ayurvedic Analysis of Low Bone Density
Ayurvedic Analysis of Low Bone Density

by Kottakkal Support May 11, 2021

Ayurveda states that Asthi Dhatu (bone tissue) is Pitruja Avayava (inherited from the parents) and specifically all hard tissues or organs are said to be derived from the father. In other words, the health of the father’s genes determines the lifelong vitality of each child’s bone strength. Low bone density can be related to the malformation of nutrition which deteriorates the dhatus.

Obesity and Heart Related Disorders
Obesity and Heart Related Disorders

Our weight and our heart are tied together when it comes to our overall health. Obesity happens when medo dhatu, or fat tissue, starts to increase, according to Ayurveda. 

An unhealthy diet and lifestyle are two of the main contributors to obesity, Ayurveda says. The annarasa, product of digestion, becomes overly sweet and this causes improper digestion (mandagni) and the result is the accumulation of sneha, or fat.
