Warning Signs of a Ligament Injury and Its Ayurvedic Management

Ligament sprain happens when a ligament is stretched or torn. Ligaments are tough tissues that connect bones. They are fibrous, strong wire like bands that grips the joint bones together.

Ligaments support the joints and keep the bones in place. They allow the body to lift, lower, or rotate the arms and legs. A ligament sprain may involve one or more ligaments.

ligament injury and ayurveda


A sprain is caused by a direct injury or sudden twisting of the joint. This may occur while playing sports, or maybe due to a fall or accident. Below are some factors that may increase the risk of a ligament sprain;

  • Overuse of the muscles or muscle fatigue
  • A sudden increase in the amount and intensity of sports training
  • Using sports equipment the wrong way
  • Wearing shoes that don’t fit or aren’t well suited for the activity



ligament injury

Symptoms of a severe and sudden (acute) anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury include:

  • Feeling or hearing a “pop” in the knee   at the time of injury.
  • Sudden instability in the knee. (The knee feels wobbly, buckles, or gives out.) This may happen after a jump or change in direction or after a direct blow to the side of the knee.
  • Pain on the outside and back of the knee.
  • Knee swelling within the first few hours of the injury. This may be a sign of bleeding inside the joint. Swelling that occurs suddenly is usually a sign of a serious knee injury.
  • Limited knee movement because of swelling and/or pain.

After an acute injury, you will almost always have to stop the activity you are doing, but you may be able to walk.

Ayurveda concept behind ligament injury :

  • In Ayurveda, ligament is correlated to mamsa dhatu. Ligament injury causes imbalalnce in the vata and pitta doshas, and it usually occurs from outside factors like unexpected events.
  • Ayurveda treatment of ligament injury takes a more holistic approach. Ayurveda treatment aims at reducing inflammation and swelling and to restore the ligament to its proper healthy function.
  • Ayurveda acknowledges energy imbalance, takes into consideration the amount of toxins (ama) a patient may have in their body, and assesses how well prana, the life-force energy responsible for all movement in the body, is flowing in the injury itself and in the patient’s body in general. 

Treatments :

Doctor ….I feel tired all the time

download (1)

Even after getting enough rest and a comfortable working life routine I  constantly looking for caffeine to perk me up. I feel fogginess in head all the time…young IT professional from kharadi came in our clinic.

Maybe its high  time that  its right  time to evaluate your diet and your exercise. Its difficult to understand in daily routine  what is making you feel tired all the time.

If this has been persisting for some time may be you need to get yourself tested for  “Thyroid problems” and more, even vitamin D deficiency or the medications you’ve taken could be making you tired.

  • We don’t realize but small habits can lead to big health consequences in our life. For e.g. even drinking too many cups of tea or coffee can be causing you some iron and Vit. b12 deficiency. For example, drinking tea or coffee with your meal can hinder in the absorption of iron from the food. Therefore, always keep a gap of 1-2 hour between your meal and tea or coffee. Iron is required by your body to synthesis hemoglobin which is a part of red blood cell and responsible carrier of oxygen in the body. In the iron deficiency hemoglobin are not synthesis properly therefore they are not able to carry the oxygen properly. This condition is also known as anemia. Due to the lack of oxygen in the body there is a frequent or unexplained headache, dizziness and tiredness all the time. Other symptoms also include pale skin, brittle nails and despite of having enough sleep you will feel the need of frequent nap in a day.
  • Vitamin D deficiency is also one of the most common problems that have been doing the rounds. Vitamin D regulates calcium in the body and helps it to maintain strong bones. It is involved in healthy muscle movement, the nervous system relies on it, and it improves immune function as well as helps to reduce inflammation. When there is not enough vitamin D in the body the bones get softer and lose their strength, leaving you feel tired all the time. There are very few natural sources of vitamin D such as natural sunlight, some fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks – and in fortified dairy and grain products. Make sure to get your dose of Vitamin D by getting some early morning sun for at least 15 minutes or eating Vitamin D rich food daily.
  • Being overweight is also a leading reason and sometimes a pre-condition to a more serious lifestyle related health disorder that saps you of all your energy. Obesity may lead to insulin resistance – a condition when goes unchecked can result in pre-diabetes and other serious conditions. Typically food is converted in the form of sugars such as glucose and absorbed in the blood.
  • The pancreas release insulin (hormone) as the sugar in the bloodstream is increased. Insulin, the hormone is responsible for removing sugar from the bloodstream so that it can be used for energy. When your body develops insulin resistance the body’s cells have a lowered ability to respond to the action of the insulin hormone. This leads to increased release of insulin by the pancreas. Over time people with insulin resistance can develop high sugars or diabetes as the high insulin levels can no longer compensate for elevated sugars.

The good news is that all these conditions can be managed and even reversed by eating healthy and exercising. Here are some easy tips to help you manage your health better –

Dont Forget :

  • Make sure you are eating enough seasonal fruits and vegetables in your diet.
  • Use minimum oil to cook your food in.
  • Limit the usage of packaged food even if the label insists it is “healthy”. Nothing is healthier the food in its most natural form.
  • Get at least 45 minutes of exercise everyday for detox and better metabolism.
  • Don’t skip your meals. This will only trigger obsessive binging, instead focus on the quality of food and not just the quantity.


Doctor, I Have a Hormonal Problem! …please help me

Doctor, I Have a Hormonal Problem  …please help me

Nowadays we saw many female patients who always blame on hormonal disturbance came routinely in our clinic.


We saw every next female patient suffer from obesity, irregular menses, hair fall,mood swing, hairs over unwanted areas, anxiety, skin dryness, unexplained swelling or any picture slightly differing from routine clinical scene is now a days are labeled as a hormonal problem by patients as well as general physicians . Trivial illnesses sometimes needs a thoughtful evaluation, we need to unravel the mystery of a diagnosis before sending or referring to other speciality.

Hormonal illnesses are a little bit difficult to treat in day todays practice to everyone and most of the times difficult to counsel  our patients. There are instances where a patient is being referred to a doctor for an illness which is hormonal but the treating physician is not aware of it and mostly vice versa.

why ayurvedic approach needed for endocrinology ?


Endocrinologists see cases of diabetes, thyroid, obesity, PCOS, pituitary, adrenal, gonads, bone illnesses relating to metabolism like osteoporosis, osteomalacia, rare types of rickets, endocrine causes of hypertension, disease relating to calcium i.e. parathyroid problems. The spectrum of cases are wide and mostly treatable. Proper selection and reference to a trained doctor brings very satisfying results. On the contrary unnecessary labelling of a case as hormonal problem leads to a series of unwanted costlier tests.finally patient blame on physician and left hope of recovery..

when patient came to ayurveda with bundles of investigations and doctors files   we counsel them by our ayurveda agni  (means metabolism )concept.here you want ayurveda approch to get complete recovery from hormonal disorders.

what ayurveda says about endocrinology ?


Ayurveda’s ‘Agni’ (metabolism) concept applies a natural and holistic approach that significantly help prevent and reduce hormonal challenges.
Its foundation is a ‘tri-dosha’ theory which views the individual’s constitution as a mixture of ‘Vata,’ ‘Pitta,’ and ‘Kapha,’ which are three distinct combinations of the universal five elements of wind, space, fire, water and earth.

A person’s unique combination of these elements and the effects of past lifestyle and dietary choices are considered when developing a personalized care program. However, since Ayurveda is a science of body, mind and consciousness, it is not enough to merely focus on just physical symptoms and imbalances; the client’s mind and consciousness also play a major role, especially in endocrinology. Therefore, Ayurvedic perspective is to explore and offer support for the healing of ‘stuck emotions,’ which directly and deeply impact the client’s overall health. In this way, Ayurveda goes well beyond the physical level when addressing hormonal imbalances

Recurrent Throat infections in kids and ayurveda remedy

recurrent throat infection

It is very common for all that lot of anxious parents seeking treatment for their kids who always suffer from recurrent throat or upper respiratory infections.

Believe me, these young anxious parents are not tougher to handle than their kids.

Kids who have recurrent upper respiratory infections usually develop symptoms which start with cold and can very fast progress into bad chesty or dry cough, fever  and even in difficult breathing. The bigger problem is the kind of recurrence that can occur in some kids.

I have personally seen kids developing infection every 15 days and seem to be perpetually living on antibiotics. This affects their quality of life and immunity wise and also in many ways.

Now, the big question is whether ayurveda has an effective remedy for the recurrence, the answer is a big ‘yes ‘.

Before we get to the ayurvedic solution let us try to understand why these kids fall sick so frequently.

We are born with Immune system(body’s own defence system) which inherits some antibodies from the mother during gestation and with breast feed . Quite a bit of Immunity is developed later in life. The cells that fight infection in our body are called as antibodies. Our body has a very intelligent immune system and can recognize a microorganism as new or one that it has previously encountered and respond accordingly. The response in the previously encountered microorganism is to send the already developed antibodies to fight that organism. In the case of new type of Microorganism the body creates specific antibodies and once they are made, they are replicated in the body in great numbers and stay in the body for long. They keep on providing cover against that specific kind of organism henceforth.  This is one the reasons why grown up’s don’t have infections that frequently.


The biggest reason for the recurrence of infections is that the young body with in immature immune system   is not getting a chance to develop natural immunity, as these kids at the slightest sign of infections, are being over-medicated by anxious parents and unscrupulous physicians.

As most of the pediatricians would agree that quite a few of these infections are Viral in nature, which means  that they require very less treatment and are self-limiting in nature. Bacterial infections are not that common and ones that can require antibiotics. It is very commonly seen here in India that at the slightest sign of any infection (even viral infections) antibiotics are given to kids. This Injudicious use of antibiotics is what leads to body not getting a chance to develop its own antibodies.

This leads to recurrence of infections. I never hate for antibiotics ,even I strongly believe that they are life saving medicines; but the parents have to realize that they should be given only when there is bacterial infection and the body is showing no signs of fighting it.

If overuse of antibiotics can lead to an impaired immune system.


How ayurveda would help in restoring immunity?

The answer lies in the basic principle around which ayurveda works –Ayurveda medicines increase natural immunity and fight against recurrent infections.

Drugs like guduchi,mulethi,tulasi,aswagandha ,haladi are best of the drugs of ayurveda which acts as booster on immunity.

According to ayurveda Diet plays important role in child care …proper diet helps to boost immunity and strength also.

Ayurveda herbal medicines works on recurrent infections well rather than overuse of antibiotics.

So dear parents don’t be panic while recurrent infections use ayurveda remidies used by your mother in your childhood…..

Poverty for the Poor and Obesity for the Rich : Obesity fact

Even as India battles malnutrition, the country has developed another nutritional problem-obesity.

In past 10 yrs ,the number of obese people has doubled in the country,according to the national family health survey. (NFHS-4)

A recent study has found that now on earth there are more overweight people than the underweight. Around 640 million people have fallen under the category of obese. According to a latest study 1 in 10 men and 1 in 7
women are obese.

download (5)

Across the globe now people have been more prone to diseases like diabetes, hypertension and also thyroid related disorders due to the pinpointing etiology, Obesity. Obesity is now in a stage where it can be categorized to be an epidemic.

Contrary to the above inferences still many developing countries in the world have got a high amount of people being underweight and in many cases malnourished. Let us see the simple example of our own country where 1/4th of the population is underweight. African countries many of which are very much underdeveloped have got upto 20% of the population being underweight.

According to the world bank, India has got one of the highest ranking in the amount of children suffering from malnutrition. Number of children in India is double of that of Africa.

Making people aware of the fact that how healthcare is important will also bring about the change. As we live in a country which has got a total of 70% of its population residing in rural areas, becomes difficult to educate people about mental and general health. Water sanitation also is very necessary for the individuals survival.

Now speaking again about obesity:

  • It has been found that Japan has the lowest BMI per capita in the developed countries.
  • USA tops the list with the highest number of people being obese.

India is the fastest  growing economy and tomorrows world leader. Today we  needs to decide whether we want our youth in the coming days to suffer with diseases like obesity and malnutrition or have a healthy , free of lifestyle diseases. It is now upon us to decide what we want our future generation to be.
