A stone in your kidney is an irregularly-shaped crystal or solid mass that can be small as the size of grain or up to the size of a golf ball. Renal calculi are the hard deposits that are made of accumulation of  minerals and salts.

Depending on the size of your kidney stone or stones, people may not even realize that they have one. Even small stones can cause very severe pain as they exit the body through urinary tract. Certain factors responsible for the building up of kidney stone are diet, Composition of water (hard water) excess body weight, some medical conditions, and certain supplements. Often, formation of stones occurs when the urine becomes concentrated that allows the minerals to crystallize and stick together.

What Ayurveda says about kidney Stones:

Ayurveda has mentioned Kidney stone as ASHMARI. Ashmari is comprises of 2 words that is “Ashma” means a stone and “Ari” means enemy.  And kidney stone is specifically termed as Moothrashmari (urolithiasis). Moothrashmari  is a disease of Moothravahasrotas (urinary tract) that leads to formation of a stone or stones, resulting in severe excruciating  pain as given by an enemy. Acharya Sushruta in our ancient Ayurvedic text explained two process of stone formation. First one is due to the stagnation and saturation of the urine forming crystal like substances such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid crystals. At the same time, urine may lack some substances that prevent crystals from sticking together that forms an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.

According to Ayurveda there is imbalance of vata dosha (elevation) that causes kapha elements in the body to dry out. This leads to kidney Stone.

  • Chronic medications might be the cause.
  • Sedentary Lifestyle: lack of exercise is becoming a habit. Exercising helps you to get rid of toxins that might accumulate and cause disease.
  • Alcohol and caffeine: Regular intake of alcohol and caffeine dehydrates the body and makes it difficult to get rid of toxins from the body and their accumulation causes kidney stones.

IMMUNITY

Immunity

IMMUNITY BOOST
IMMUNITY BOOSTING SUPPLIMENTS
IMMUNITY AFTER COVID

  • Immunity was considered only as the immunity of the organism to infections or infectious diseases, but later it was found that it gives our body the power to fight against all kinds of diseases and at the same time it helps to fight diseases. It also changes the cells of the body.
  • Immunity also called disease resistance. The immune system functions to defend the body against infection. Pathogens are foreign disease causing bacteria and viruses that people come in contact with every day. The immune system attacks these germs and helps keep us healthy.
  • B lymphocytes work to make antibodies. These proteins block specific antigens. After the antibody is made, it stays in our body to fight the same germ again. So if someone who gets sick with a disease like chickenpox usually won’t get sick again. Antibodies can recognize an antigen and destroy it.
  • An immune response is the body’s defense system to fight antigens and protect the body. If a person has a disease, then there is a presence of antibodies against that disease in that person’s system, then immunity is obtained from that disease.

TYPES OF IMMUNITY

There are two types of immunity – innate and additive immunity.

  1. Innate Immunity – It gives protection to the person against diseases but it is not long term.
  2. Additive Immunity – This gives an individual protection against diseases as well as long-term protection against specific pathogens.

SIGNS OF A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM

There are some signs of weak immunity. If you get frequent infections, take a long time to recover from infections, or sores take a long time to heal, the immune system may be weakened. Symptoms of a weak immune system include.

Winter comes every year and it is normal to experience 2-3 winters in a year. But if you get cold again and again, then it is a sign that your immune system is weak.

Prolonged exposure to stress and loneliness has a negative effect on the immune system. Because stress lowers lymphocyte levels, it becomes harder for the body to fight infection. Therefore, if you are under stress about any work or anything, fall ill, then you should make efforts to manage stress.

  • Infection

  • Stress

People who live under stress, their immunity becomes weak and diseases occur twice as fast. The reason is weak immunity, so try to remain stress free.

  • Diabetes

Today many people are suffering from diabetes. The immunity of people suffering from diabetes becomes weak and they become unable to face diseases.

  • Ageing

The effect of age is on everything, as the age increases, the immune system stops working properly and becomes weak.

  • Cancer

Cancer is the most common cause of death in the world. So people who are facing cancer may also have to face weak immunity.

  • Severe infection

Any serious infection that has made a place in your body, it also affects your immunity, and this is also one of the main reasons.

GUT HEALTH

Gut

Ayurveda science always revolves around this thought that “all diseases begins in the Gut”. Our gut is foundation of our body.  A healthy gut health is critically important for the overall wellness of the body. Disturbance in the gut not only shows gastrointestinal symptoms but may lead to various physical and mental health issues. Urbanization has been a biggest cause of deteriorating Gut health worldwide.

Modern science also believes in healthy gut is the result of balanced good (helpful) and bad (potentially harming) bacteria and yeast in our digestive system.  In fact gut health is responsible for majority of immune health and serotonin levels. This clearly says that immune system and hormones not able to work properly if gut isn’t healthy and you probably get sick.

Factors affects gut Health:

  • Stress
  • Poor nutrition
  • Long term use of antibiotics
  • Prolonged use of antacids
  • Poor eating habits
  • Processed and packed food

Signs of Unhealthy Gut:

  • Gas or acidity
  • Bloated belly
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Brain fog
  • Difficulty in concentrating
  • Poor memory
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Frequent mood swings
  • Chronic pain
  • Fatigue
  • Autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, Diabetes, multiple sclerosis etc

Ayurveda concept behind:

“अग्न्यधिष्ठानमन्नस्य ग्रहणाद्ग्रहणी मता |

नाभेरुपर्यह्यग्निबलेनोपष्टब्धोपबृंहिता ||

अपक्वं धारत्यन्नं पक्वं सृजति पार्श्वतः |

दुर्बलाग्निबला दुष्टा  त्वाममेव विमुञ्चति ||”

Grahni is the seat of Agni (digestive power), it also holds the food we eat till the digestion is completed and assimilated. Agni holds the undigested food and pushes forward the digested food. But when agni becomes weak and vitiated by various factors like unhealthy eating, stress etc, it affects the proper digestion of food and formation of Ama leads to accumulation of toxins (byproduct of undigested food). These toxin circulates in whole body through the blood causing various diseases starting from the gut to each and every part of the body. Hence your Gut Health is good if your Agni is functioning well.

Methods of improving Gut Health With Ayurveda:

Ayurveda focuses on certain dietary and lifestyle changes to improve gut health.

  • Eat freshly cooked warm food with digestive spices like turmeric, ginger, pepper, cumin seed, methi seeds etc to strengthen the digestion.
  • Eating fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables with nutritive and antioxidant properties that energize the system.
  • Good gut bacteria is needed for the proper absorption of nutrition. Hence one should avoid processed food as they contain high sugars and chemicals that destroy gut bacteria. And adding on the probiotic rich food like yogurt, buttermilk, fermented food like cheese etc
  • Adding water soluble fibers into diet \ that aids digestion such as whole grains like oats or quinoa, legumes, fresh fruits and vegetables, chia seeds, flax seeds, nuts like almonds etc.
  • Adding spices into diet like turmeric, cumin, coriander, pink salt, fennel seeds, ginger etc as it adds flavor to our diet and aids digestion by increasing secretion of enzymes.
  • Natural source of probiotics : probiotics helps in calcium uptake and boost the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut.
