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 in your overall health condition

Trikonaasana :helps strengthen the pectoral groups, helpful for women seeking enlargement. Must be complimented with massage, herbs intake.

Bhujangasana :the imminent stretch helps in reduction of excessive fat tissue around the breast, this helps in breast reduction. for enlargement use the asana in the end stage for toning]

Paschimuttanasana:A difficult asana. It puts pressure on the spinal chakras and helps proper flow of hormones. In general should be practiced for an overall hormonal stability. However ones suffering from constipation and ulcers seek expert guidance.

Tadasana:Exerts pressure on the thyroid and is a great posture for overall hormonal stability.

Shalbhasana (Toad posture):Improves muscle stability helps burn fat tissue. done in conjunction with Bhujangasana,

Dhanuarasana & Naukasana:Both asanas combined with Bhujangasana and Shalabhasana makes a power combination for great breast shape especially women looking for reduction and firmness

There are other Asanas which are helpful but must be done under expert guidance as they are tough

Simhasana
Ardha Matsyendrasana
Chakrasana
Sethu Bandhasana
Halasana
Combining above asanas with proper exponent of Surya Namaskara (12 step exercise) helps immensely. It is very important to follow time rules with regards to yoga. Most postures are meant to be practiced at sunrise after relieving natural urges.

AYURVEDA REMEDIES

Though Ayurveda does not directly pinpoint at cosmetic manipulation towards breasts there are many formulations which can be used effectively to help in the process. some of our experiences in terms of home remedies one can safely use.

EXTERNAL APPLICATIONS

Boil sesame seeds 20gms, Fenugreek seeds 20 gm, Aloe vera pulp 20 gm, rose petals 20 gm in 500ml of water and reduce to the mixture to 50ml. Strain the mixture. Add the decoction to 50ml of virgin coconut oil and boil till oil remains. Filter and store in a glass bottle. Warm require quantity of oil [Always put the oil bottle in warm water. Do not heat oil directly over flame]. Massage in a clockwise directions. Use downwards strokes when massaging beneath the breasts. Regular use helps burn excess fat tissue and also makes the breasts firm. [Avoid massaging on nipples]

Prepare a paste by mixing the following herbs in water or aloe vera juice. Mayphal [Quercus infectorius] 10gms , Maida Lakdi [Litsea chinensis] 10gm , Jaiphal [Myristica fragrans] 5gm. Make the paste warm and apply over the breast . Regular use imparts firmness to the breast. [Avoid massaging the nipples]

Boil bark of Gambhari [Gmelina arborea] 100gm, in virgin coconut oil (250ml) till black residue of the bark remains. Filter and store the oil in a clean glass oil. Warm the required quantity of medicated oil and massage as explained before. This formulation helps in breast enhancement.

INTERNAL MEDICINE

Breast enlargement

Boil 4gms Ashwagandha [Withania somnifera], 3gms Arjun bark [Terminalia arjuna] in 1 part milk [100ml] and 4 parts water till milk remains. Strain the mixture through a clean cloth and consume empty stomach early morning. The procedure must be preferable carried out in an iron vessel

Breast reduction and Firmness

Gorakhmundi [Sphaeranthus indicus, 40gm], Daruhaladi [Berberis aristata 40 gm], Nagarmotha [Cyperus esculentus 30 gm]. Boil the herbs in 1litre of water and reduce to 600ml. Filter and store in the fridge. Intake 200ml of the decoction every morning [or in two divided doses 100(Morn.) 100 (Eve.)] empty stomach. Prepare fresh after 3 days. Continue for 2 menstrual cycles. Then take a gap of 15 days and repeat.

NASAL DROPS

Use of Cow’s ghee [clarified butter from cow] in form of nasal drops helps immensely in breast development. Certain traditional preparations like Anu Taila, Panchanendriya vardhan Tailacan also be used. The procedure must be done at sunrise. Steam inhalation must be undertaken for 4 -5 minutes. After that the head must be inclined at 75 degree and warm cow’s ghee or the concerned preparation must be instilled . One should first start from 2 drops and gradually increase to 6 drops. The process would benefit more if one can ascertain which nostril [Nadi] is active. For information at any given time most of us breathe [inhale and exhale] through the right or left nostrils. Only at certain times or through yogic Pranayama can one activate both nostrils at the same time. Hence the drops must be first instilled in the active nostril followed by the passive one. The active nostril can be easily found out by closing one nostril at a time. The one that allows free flow is active while the one that meets with resistance is passive.

DIET RULES

Restrict salt intake to minimum
Eat papaya during menstrual cycles to ensure good flow.
If possible go on a salt restricted diet for first 3 days of menses being only on papaya and cow’s milk.
Stay away from Bakery products, green chillies, pickles, curds [Buttermilk okay].
Avoid non-veg diet or restrict to minimum
Alcohol restriction
Also avoid excessive gestures like fondling and caressing during sexual intimacy while application of the above medications. Though the effects are not profound it is advisable to refrain for good results.

There are other Anaerobic exercises suggested to help breast development are :

Pectoral push up
Inverted push up
Pectoral press
Butterfly press
This exercise require weight training.

We sincerely hope this small article helps many of you who are looking for solutions but are inapt to pick up one mode or line of treatment. Going the natural way would not only help you achieve your purpose but would have the added benefit of providing you a healthy lifestyle and regulating other health problems.

Arogyam Wishes that this article may help clear misconception and try and convince many to follow an holistic approach.

NOTE
The yogic postures mentioned must be practiced preferably under expert guidance. The use of Ayurveda medicines mentioned is safe. In case of any ill effects like discontinue the medicines. With respect to local applications, readers are advised to initially apply the medication on a small area to check for any allergic reactions.

AYURVEDA AND FEMALE INFERTILITY

“The news of conception and feeling of becoming a mother gives an unexplained contentment to every woman’s heart. It is an innate desire of every woman to hold her baby in arms and bestow upon it, her affectionate love, generously.” Conception is a natural course in an individual, whereas in some cases the female may […]

“The news of conception and feeling of becoming a mother gives an unexplained contentment to every woman’s heart. It is an innate desire of every woman to hold her baby in arms and bestow upon it, her affectionate love, generously.”

Conception is a natural course in an individual, whereas in some cases the female may have to confront some hinderances. As explained previously, Infertility is inability to conceive after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse. Woman who conceive but are incapable to retain the foetus till the birth are also termed infertile.

Causes of 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.

Generalised cause – Generalised debility, history of trauma to reproductive organs, anaemia, tuberculosis, hypothyroidism, physical or mental stress, etc.

History of repeated abortions weakens the uterine tissues, thus preventing the uterus to retain the fertilized ovum for longer span. It may also lead to long term infections. Past history of diseases like measles, rubella, etc. and frequent urinary tract infections serves an efficient cause for infertility.

Fear or unawareness about sexual intercourse, or conception requires effectual counselling which can solve the problem for sure.

Unhealthy food habits, changing lifestyle, untimely meals, lack of nutrition, lack of exercise, over exertion, self medication, or excessive use of hormonal pills to regulate menses according to our convenince plays against natural course resulting in infertility. Smoking impairs ovarian function and prevents embryo implantation into the endometrium. There can still be a long list to add but these are the few which should be taken care of.

Ayurvedic approach towards treatment pertaining to infertility is bringing various solutions. Reproductive tissue, also known as shukra dhatu is responsible for good or bad metabolic process. Good and effective ayurvedic medicines are introduced, which supply nutrients to the bone, muscle, food and shukra dhatu.

” 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, and in males it denotes the male reproductive system.
Structural defect in uterus can be one of the reasons of infertility; of which some can be cured.
Defect in sperm and semen.
An obstruction in anatomical structure, like tubal blockage, or obstructive pathologies like ovarian or uterine tumors, fibroids.
Suppressing natural urges like that of urine, stools or sexual urge (Shukra Vega dharan) for long durations.
Over indulgence in sex can lead to shukra kshaya i.e Qualitative and Quantitative degradation in sperm count.
Decreased or Loss of libidio.
Sometimes impotency or infertility prevails by birth.
Abnormality in artav dhatu (female shukra dhatu ) Irregular menses, PCOD, unovulation, etc..
Infective pathology.
Trauma to the vital organs.
Repeated miscarriages.
Generalised treatment of infertility :

Counselling is an essential part.
Nourishment of general health.
Regulating diet and behavourial habits.
Treat defects and infective pathologies if any.
Relieving stress factor concerned with work or related to conception.
Ensure digestive fire (agni) is strong enough.
Clear any obstructions, blockages or outgrowths.
Medicines for regulation of normal physiology of reproductive system.
Sharir shodhan (purification) i.e. removal of body toxins and developing healthy body tissues by means of Panchakarma is very effective.
Vajikaran chikitsa – Treatment to build healthy reproductive tissues, it acts as a tonic and increases strength, vigour, and developes healthy sperm essential for conceiving a healthy baby.
Following rules of sexual intercourse.
Last but not the least Love and affection between the couple and pleasant state of mind plays an important role !
Ayurvedic approach towards treatment pertaining to infertility is bringing various solutions. Reproductive tissue, also known as shukra dhatu is responsible for good or bad metabolic process. Good and effective ayurvedic medicines are introduced, which supply nutrients to the bone, muscle, food and shukra dhatu.

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 […]

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. This step will help in the prevention of the formation of colon polyps which later lead to the formation of colon cancer in individuals.

# Colon cleansing after every six months using the three day liquid fast method is also effective in the treatment of colon cancer. Fresh juices must be regularly consumed to start the process of decaying the injured tissues and deposits in the colon area. This also helps in the removal of undigested materials from the colon. Aloe vera juice fasts and apple cider fasts are some other techniques of colon cleansing. Kidney cleansing has also been found in preventing colon cancer in individuals. Using different herbs, the kidney can be cleansed as this will prevent the breakout of a colon cancer.

# Ginger or ginger roots can be consumed by individuals to prevent as well as to cure colon cancer. Inflammation is reduced greatly by the intake of ginger in individuals. This inflammation has been found to have led to colon cancer in individuals. The inflammation markers which have been earlier proved in clinical researches as precursors to colon cancer can also be reduced significantly by the consumption of ginger or ginger roots. Research conducted on individuals who have been given two grams of ginger root supplements daily for one month have shown lessened amount of colon inflammation. Ginger soothes and heals the digestive tract and hence has been suggested as one of the best home remedies for the treatment of colon cancer. Ginger root supplements are available for the consumption of individuals. Even consuming raw ginger twice daily has beneficial effects on the health of the individual.

# Garlic has been used extensively in different cultures of the world mainly for the medicinal properties that it possesses. It is used not only as a spice but also for the treatment of various diseases. Recent researches have proved that garlic can also be used for the treatment of colon cancer in many individuals. It is in recent years that the popularity of this herb has increased as a colon cancer treating element. Garlic is a rich storehouse of organo-sulphur compounds. These compounds are the reason behind the pungent odor of garlic. Research has proved that these organo-sulphur compounds in garlic help in the prevention of the formation of colon polyps in the large intestine. These polyps actually are the precursors of the colon cancer. Consumption of raw garlic is therefore very helpful in the treatment of colon cancer in individuals. A few strands of garlic can be made into a paste and can be consumed daily for the colon cancer treatment. The juice of the garlic is the most essential element as it contains the organo-sulphur compounds and helps in restoring the health of the colon.

# Flax seed is the yellow or brown colored seed derived from the flax plant. Flax seed is a very important source of oil. The oil from the flax seed is rich in proteins and often consumed by individuals for the treatment of various diseases. The seeds of the plant are grounded so as to derive the main nutrients from the plant. Flax seed is rich in fibers, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients lignan, omega 3 fatty acids, alpha-linolenic acid. These elements help in maintain the good health of the colon and helps in cleaning the colon from the undigested wastes that remains in the colon and also helps in preventing colon polyps’ formation. These minerals can be effectively utilized by the digestive tract and this is the result why flax seed consumption helps individuals suffering from colon cancer. The high amount of lignan present in flax seed is also helpful in the prevention and in the treatment of colon cancer.

# Turmeric can not only be used for spicing up the dishes that an individual cooks but also is helpful for the treatment of various diseases including colon cancer. Turmeric is a relative of the ginger plant. The bulbs, roots and the rhizome of the plant are used for medicinal purposes. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory qualities and is also helpful in improving the kidney and liver functions of an individual. Curcumin is the active ingredient found in turmeric and is responsible for the treatment of the various diseases. Curcumin is an anti-oxidant and helps the human body to clean itself from unwanted elements known as free radicals. These free radicals can alter the DNA build up in the body of an individual and also damage or destroy the healthy cells in the human body. The anti-oxidant quality of curcumin makes it effective in treating these damaging particles. Curcumin helps in the cleaning of the digestive tract from the unwanted food elements and prevents the formation of colon polyps there.

Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables provide rich amounts of antioxidants — nutrients that help your body protect itself from toxins associated with cancer and other illnesses, including infections that may interfere with cancer treatment and recovery. Since having cancer increases your risk for secondary cancers, the American Cancer Society recommends that all cancer patients consume a variety of foods rich in antioxidants daily. Fruits and vegetables particularly rich in protective nutrients include berries, cherries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, kiwi, red grapes, mango, leafy greens, bell peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and winter squash. If your appetite is reduced, you may find fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies more palatable.

Grains

Grains provide glucose — your body’s main dietary source of energy. If your doctor has suggested a low-fiber or low-residue diet to temporarily reduce the amounts of undigested food and stool in your digestive tract, the American Cancer Society recommends white bread, plain pasta, pretzels and low-fiber cereals as valuable options. Otherwise, 100 percent whole-grain breads, cold cereals and pasta, brown and wild rice, quinoa, oatmeal, pearled barley and air-popped popcorn are valuable sources of fiber and antioxidants.

Fluids

Dehydration can cause tiredness, confusion, fatigue and low moods — symptoms you may already be faced with during colon cancer treatment. Cancer treatment side effects, such as vomiting and diarrhea, increase your risk for dehydration. For this reason, the American Cancer Society recommends that cancer patients aim for sufficient fluid intake. Valuable sources include water, pure fruit and vegetable juices, herbal tea, kefir and low-fat milk. In addition to promoting hydration, milk and kefir supply valuable amounts of protein and nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D. Healthy bacteria in kefir known as probiotics promote digestive health.

Antioxidant is the much talked about topic nowadays. They are much in demand today all over the world. People are using them to regain mental as well as physical well-being.

Despite their popularity, there is a great lack of information on the topic of antioxidants. This article tries to deal with that issue. Firstly, we should know that what an antioxidant means. Antioxidants are molecules that are useful in preventing the early oxidation of our bodily cells. Oxidation of the body cells can lead to the generation of free radicals that are solely responsible for the aging as well as degenerative processes happening in the body. These antioxidants are involved in inhibiting the production of these free radicals thereby making you feel younger and healthier both mentally and physically.

In our body, there are continuous constructive (anabolism) and destructive (catabolism) processes going on. These are collectively known as metabolism. During such metabolic changes, ions or ionic groups are produced, called as free radicals. These free radicals are produced help the body to carry out the normal functions. Though these free radicals are produced by the normal bodily activity, they are indeed harmful for our body especially when considered in the long term. In simple words, these are responsible for making us old and initiate the process of aging. Growing old can be defined as the process in which there is decline in the physical and mental functioning of the body. In simple words decreased memory skills, lower immunity and reduced physical stamina is the sign of aging.

In general, it means people consume these antioxidants to avoid aging, impaired metabolism and general debility of the body. People conceptualize antioxidants as per their convenience. According to some people, antioxidants are substances that are consumed to strengthen the immune system, for some it is being consumed to avoid aging processes of the body and for some it is the method by which they can be healthy and attain longevity.

Ayurveda, being an age-old science, also laid stress on consuming the antioxidants. These are mentioned in the very first chapter of the Ayurvedic book of medicine, Charaka Samhita. According to the text, rasayana the synonym of antioxidant are consumed to attain longevity and maintain the healthy life.

# Below are some powerful Anti-oxidants that are the contributions of Ayurveda :

Amalaki : is an herb famous for its rich Vitamin C content has also attained its popularity due to its bulk presence in chyawanprash. Amalaki possesses certain chemicals like gallic acid, ellagic acid, chebulinic acid, quercetin, chebulagic acid and corilagin that provide it with the power to act as an antioxidant. According to the Ayurvedic point of view, due to its cold potency and presence of five tastes, it is very helpful in avoiding oxidation of the cells.

Haritaki : has a hot potency and has five tastes. Botanically Haritaki is known as Terminalia chebula. The herb is famous for its astonishing healing power and its wonderful results in treating many diseases.

Asparagus : A rich source of vitamins and minerals, asparagus contains glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that is very helpful in reducing free radical production. Glutathione has been involved curing the thirty types of cancers. It is also a powerful agent, which is helpful in treating diseases of cardiovascular system and respiratory system.

Triphala : This is not a single herb but a uniqueness of ayurveda and its power of treatment. Triphala is a miraculous herb combination that has gained its popularity as the most successful antioxidant. Triphala contains a mixture of three prestigious herbs Amalaki, Haritaki and Bhibitaki. Triphala is considered as the a divine medicine that has gained a respect as the drug of choice for treating almost every disease that exist on the face of the earth

Male Infertility :

The following points need to considered while studying Male Infertility :

· Volume of semen.

· Sperm count – oligospermia, azoospermia, necrospermia.

· Motility of sperm.

· Structural defects of sperms – Due to vitiated vata dosha.

· Any obstruction in genital tract.

· Erectile dysfunction.

Causes of Male Infertility :

Ayurveda explains following causes for male infertility :

· Ativyavayat– Over indulgence in sexual activity.

· Vyayamat– Over exertion, it may include any kind of physical exertion or strenuous mental efforts.

· Avyayamat– Over relaxation, laziness or spending very leisure life.

· Asatmyanam cha sevanat– Eating over spicy, salted, sour, frozen foods, foods with low nutrition and lack of hygiene; also behavioural habits like sleeping very late at night, hectic lifestyle leads to disparity of Rakta and Pitta Dosha, ultimately causing Shukra kshaya i.e. deficit in Shukra Dhatu qualitatively and quantitatively.

· Akale– It means at inappropriate time; i.e. before desirable age specifically before age of 16 in females and 18 in that of males, or beyond the age of 65-70 where the body faces generalised debility. Another aspect explains having intercourse very frequently and many times (5-6 times) in a day also leads to debility of Shukra dhatu.

· Ayonau– Indulging into sex in other than natural ways, i.e. Masturbation, oral or anal sex etc.

· Maithunam Na Cha Gachataha– Suppression of sexual urge.

· Narinam Arasaudnyata– Having intercourse with undesirable partner.

The other essential causes are fear, stress, sorrow, tight clothing, working in hot environment for long duration. Smoking and alcohol consumption significantly affect virility in males.

Trauma to the genital organs, generalised debility, muscle weakness and stress can result in erectile dysfunction.

Suppression of sexual urge, infection in reproductive tract, or any kind of stricture can cause an obstructive pathology.

Treating Male Infertility :

Overcoming male infertility requires some basic modulation in lifestyle and food habits.

The treatment includes Shodhan chikitsai.e. cleansing therapy depending upon dominancy of derranged doshas. Vaman in Kapha dushti, Virechan in Pitta dushti and Basti in case of Vata dushti.

Panchakarma therapies like Abhyanga (whole body massage), Shirodhara, Nasya endows great deal of physical and mental relaxation.

Regular exercise and yoga promotes added assistance. One should practice pelvic floor exercises, padmasan, mool bandha to strengthen and optimize the functionality of the desired organs.

Treating obstructions or infections if any, with medicines like Gokshur, Guduchi, Triphala, etc. Also Uttar Basti treatment serves beneficial in cases of obstructive pathologies, it as well strengthens the muscles of urinary tract and reproductive system.

Rejuvenation and Aphrodisiac treatment plays an important role;

Rejuvenation therapy revitalizes the body and reinforces it internally and externally thus enhances body endurance and also assists in creating healthier sperms. Medicines like Chyawanprash, Musali paak, Rasayan vati, Kandarpa paak, Kushmand avleha, etc serves the purpose. A combination of milk + ghee + honey + cold water in specific proportion depending upon one’s body constitution along with other medicines like yastimadhu, shatavari, amla, etc. serves as a good rasayan.

Aphrodisiac Therapies are of 3 types :

1. Sperm generating or enhancing sperm count.

2. Those which helps in ejaculation of seminal fluid.

3. Medicines which serve both the above purpose.

Medicines like Shatavari, Nagbala, Bala, Musali, Ashwagandha, Milk, Ghee, Haritaki, Amla, Yastimadhu, Pippali, Shatavari kalpa plays an essential role in improving count of efficient sperms.

KEEP LIVER HEALTHY( The Main Vital Organ Of The Body ) – HERBAL / NATURAL DETOXIFICATION It is important that you do a liver detox at least once a year as the liver is one of the most vital organs of our body. A liver detox helps to ensure that it functions properly in producing over 13,000 different chemicals and 2,000 various enzymes used by the body.

It is only the liver that can purify the bloodstream and we only have one liver. With in the human body is an organ that is incredible in the amount of work it does daily.The liver is one of the largest organs in the body, and the heaviest weighing in at over 3 lbs. It is a smooth, cone shaped organ that is protected by the rib cage on the upper right of the abdomen. It carries out over five hundred different processes every day involved with filtering and regulating the various chemicals in the body.

# Some of it’s many duties are:

Aids in digestion
distributes nutrients in the food you eat
removes toxins from the blood
stores glucose
filters chemicals
helps to get rid of old blood cells
maintains the blood sugar level
and many more things

* Most amazing of all is that it regenerates itself! Your liver can continue to keep functioning even after losing up to ninety percent (90%) of it’s cells.
Because it does so much when it is not functioning properly the whole body can run amok. With as many environmental pollutants as humans are exposed to in modern society the liver is often worked beyond it’s ability to cope and over time it ceases to do it’s job effectively. As the liver functions less effectively the body begins to have illnesses and begins to break down. Some of the health problems associated with a toxic liver are:

constipation
bloat
headaches
acid reflux
high cholesterol
overweight/obesity
underweight
PMS
Asthma
Fibromyalgia
Diabetes
Skin disorders
Depression
Fatigue
Dark circles under the eyes

* Luckily the liver is resilient and these illnesses and trends toward illnesses can be reversed.

# Natural Cleanses :

A liver cleanse is not something to take on lightly or without research. It should be done in stages. Most naturopaths recommend that before the liver is cleansed a person should do a colon cleanse first and then a kidney cleanse. Why is this?
When you go through a liver cleanse the various toxins that have been stored in the liver are dumped in to the body. The colon and the kidneys must then eliminate these toxins rapidly, or as rapidly as possible. If these organs are not at peak function they will not be able to rid the body of toxins quickly and effectively and that could lead to more problems.

Once you have done that then it is time to go on to the liver cleanse.

# Herbs For Liver Detox :
There are many herbs that are recommended for detoxifying the liver.
-Turmeric- increases bile production and helps with the treatment of gall stones ,Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant.
– Milk Thistle- is a strong anti-toxin
– Yellow Dock-helps to dissolve fat in the liver and is an excellent anti-toxin
– Dandelion- immune system booster and anti-toxin
– Licorice Root- Helps neutralize the effects of powerful chemical toxins
*These herbs can be used in various combinations to help detoxify the liver and keep it functioning properly.

# When Should You Not Detox?

Some of the reasons that detoxing can be dangerous are:

Pregnancy
Breast feeding
Children or Teens should not detox because they are growing
Elderly
Underweight
Getting over an illness
Anemia
Heart Disease
Kidney Problems
Diabetes
Chronic illness
Supplements
You can also use prepared supplements to help with detoxing the liver. Several companies make herbal combinations that work to detoxify and subsequently strengthen the liver and surrounding organs. Usually it is best to take these supplements in conjunction with a dietary change, or after a more in depth liver cleanse, but read instructions carefully and always check with your health care provider.

Arogyam Pure Herbs Markav Capsule
Arogyam Pure Herbs Shodhan Capsule
# A Life Style of Health :

By doing a liver detox and then following a healthy eating plan for life which includes organic and hormone free foods, and by taking supplements that have been formulated to strengthen your organs, you can maintain an energetic and healthy life-style well in to your retirement years.
