HIV, Tuberculosis and ayurveda.
Normally, when a patient comes with a problem of chest infection and he has a simple complaint of fever. Fever is of continuous pattern. On investigation and x-ray chest confirms Tuberculosis.
Doctors start Anti tuberculosis treatment.  But treatment fails, No result. Doctor advised to go for HIV test. It is positive. After that, viral load is calculated. Allopathic treatment is antiviral drug. This is common picture of almost every HIV patients that is seen in now a day’s practice. I as an ayurvedic physician recommend taking Rasyana therapy as an additive to your allopathic medicine to raise cd4 count and decrease viral load. By this additive therapy we raise immunity to fight with the disease.
HIV is a disease where our own ooj i.e immunity gets down. So to raise immunity by Rasyana therapy

HIV and Ayurveda
When you are suffering from any immune suppressive disease.  Your cd4 count is done. Cd4 count is going down.  It is test which tells about your immunity.  T cells, T lymphocytes which are released from Thymus gland. These T cells tell us the cd4 count. T cells are generated to counteract the bacteria and virus. HIV virus fights with these T cells. As the viral load increases the cd4 count goes down.
Ayurveda Rasyana therapy has the ability to raise the cd4 count. Rasyana therapy lowers the viral load. HIV virus has the ability to generate the copies of virus. Allopathic drugs attack on virus. Rasyana therapy increases the cd4 count.  So both therapies can go side by side.  Patient of HIV can lead a successful life. Cd4 count goes below 350 then HIV is confirmed.  So for treating HIV we have to raise cd4 count by Rasyana therapy.





In the ancient times, when there is no technique to count the immunity of body or power of body, at that time when viral load  is increased and the vikar( disease) developed in the body. It is called the Vikara due to unknown cause by the god due to pap karma (bad work). These diseases are viral diseases in which viral load of the body get increased. This causes the lowering of the immunity of the body that is called oaj. Oaj is built by the seven dhatus  of body resulting in power of body.  Viral load causes the destruction of the immunity of the body. At that time diseases are not defined and all viral load HIV, Hepatitis B , Hepatitis C and other viral diseases of chest . For these types of diseases Ayurveda has a lot of Rasyana which increases the power or immunity of body. Rasyana gives us strength and immunity to fight with diseases .As an Ayurvedic physician I request all the patients of viral load to take Rasyana therapy. In increased viral load we cover patients of HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and patient of Toxoplasmosis. I request all patients to take Rasyana therapy as an additive to your allopathic medicine. Patients can ask their physician or treating doctors to take it as supplements.  Rasyana therapy can increase minimum 10 years of life to HIV patients.  They can live a normal life by taking allopathic medicine and additive Rasyana therapy.

Ayurvedic Herb Treatment for Heart Disease

Heart disease and oil
although more expensive than other oils, olive oil has many health benefits and is preferred cooking oil in Mediterranean countries. Olive oil contains monounsaturated fat, which can lower the risk of heart disease by reducing the total and low density lipoprotein LDL or bad cholesterol levels in the blood.
According to Food and Drug administration consuming about 2 table spoon oil a day may substantial reduce your risk to heart disease. You can get the most benefit by substituting olive oil for saturated fats rather than just adding more olive oil to your diet. This oil is extracted by pressing or crushing olives and comes in different varieties depending on the amount of processing involved.
Extra virgin oil is considered the best; this oil comes from the first pressing of the olives
when you buy the olive buy the extra virgin quality of olive oil.
In order to get maximum benefit it is used for salad dressings as a season for soups for sautéing vegetables or for grilling.





Postmenopausal osteoporosis is a chronic progressive disease characterized by low bone deterioration and decreased bone strength that leads to increased bone fragility and a consequent increase in fracture risk. It is a silent disease in most cases with no symptoms until fracture occurs.
Half of the postmenopausal women will have osteoporosis related fracture during the lives, including the one quarter with vertebral deformity about 15 percent with hip fracture due to osteoporosis. Studies have also shown that Caucasian and Asian women are more likely to develop osteoporosis. The WHO has identified osteoporosis as a major public health concerns due to its high prevalence and the serious consequences of osteoporotic fracture.
There is a direct relationship between the lack of estrogen after menopause and development of osteoporosis.
After menopause bone resorption outpaces the building of new bone. Early menopause and any prolonged period in which hormone levels are low and menstrual periods are absent or infrequent can cause loss of bone mass.
Menopause increases the risk of developing osteoporosis. It is estimated that 10 percent of bony mass is lost in first five years after menopause

The most common clinical manifestation of postmenopausal are fracture of the hip, vertebral columns and wrist .Osteoporosis related fracture are responsible for excess mortality, chronic pain, reduction in quality of life, admission to long term care and health care costs and health and social care costs.

To prevent post menopausal osteoporosis Ayurveda has a lot of herbs that can help you to overcome from it in Natural way

Schizophrenia treatment and ayurveda
Schizophrenia patient must go for exercise. As I have seen patients of schizophrenia their eating habits are very bad because they eat without the control of brain. They are fatty, obese stagnant at a place for hours. Sometimes patients of schizophrenia have thyroid or other hormonal imbalance. .As these people are taking allopathic medicine which is causing gain in weight due to retention of water and sodium.
So I request the attendant of all schizophrenia patients to walk of 10000 steps daily or take them to gym or health club. Their food should contain high fiber diet such as carrots or other vegetable salads.
I request as an ayurvedic physician to take these herbs such as Vriksamla and guggul.Add as additive therapy so that patients do not gain weight.
Weigh reduction itself increase their fight to schizophrenia.
Patients overcome this disease.
It also causes motivation in them to overcome this disease
