Traditional Treatments in a Modern World

Filed under: Uncategorized — nisharavi123 @ 3:33 am

Since the beginning of this year, the current government has consistently been pushing the promotion and use of Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy medicines. They are commonly known as AYUSH or Indian medicines. The celebration of International Yoga Day with much fanfare is a case in point. But the recent set of ‘Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Guidelines for clinical trials in Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani (ASU) medicines’ released by the Ministry of Ayush for public comments until 15 September could be crucial for Indian medicines to be scientifically accepted as alternatives to Western medicine. The Guidelines have been prepared incorporating inputs from Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR), Central Drug Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO), Central Councils for research in ASU systems and even representatives of ASU drug manufacturing industries.

According to World Health Organisation reports, 70 percent of the Indian population is dependent on alternative and folk medicine. There are several reasons for such a scenario: Poor health system, remote facilities and availability in rural villages of Western medicine and unaffordability for most of the population. Professor Govindarajan Padmanabhan, former director of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and currently working on use of turmeric extracts in cure for malaria agrees “when a large portion of the population depends on a system, it should be properly validated”. He points out to the fact that Indian medicine has huge anecdotal data but there is little scientific proof for Indian medicine to be accepted by international market. According to him when the Chinese and the Koreans are able to sell their medicine to the rest of the world, India should be too.

The writing is on the wall when it comes to Indian medicines. Sceptics may dismiss the system on lack of scientific grounds or the more affluent may choose to opt for modern medicines as the preferred choice of medication. But in a country like India with its long and rich history of traditional medicine, it probably makes sense to draw on its knowledge. If not all square, it surely makes sense to scientifically document the effects of traditional medicine in a modern world. This definitely will give a billion people multiple choices to choose for their ailments which are cheaper, effective and of good quality.

Abhyanga Made Easy For Good Health

Filed under: Uncategorized — nisharavi123 @ 4:03 pm

Abhyanga in simple terms means oil massage. It involves applying warm oil all over the body with gentle massage. As people grow up it is considered insignificant and gets ignored. But, one must remember how it was an important procedure followed during our growing years.

Oil massage on the head nourishes all sense organs and induces good sleep. Thick, lusturous and dark hair definitely demands regular massage with good oil. These benefits continue to be so in adult life also. Everyday oil bath keeps one’s skin young and healthy, prevents rashes, itching, reduces aging process, removes fatigue and induces good sleep. Digestion also gets improved.

Winter is the best season to understand the significance and benifits of Abhyanga. Dry, lustreless, dull and cracked skin, painful and cracked feet are some common problems faced during this time. It can all be kept away by regular oil massage.
