Ayurveda & Skin Diseases
The months of July and August represent the varsha ritu or the rainy season. According to Ayurveda, this is the time for the pitta aggravation. All the heat that accumulates in the body in the rust of the greesam (summer season) is aggravated in the rainy season. There are a number of skin conditions prevalent in the rainy season. Especially in India, this is the time when you can see large crowds in skin clinics. A simple knowledge of Ayurveda can help us to prevent and even treat painful disorders of the skin.
According to Ayurveda, the skin has six layers, located not only superficially but extending to the deeper levels of the body. A skin disease is largely deeply rooted in several dhats or tissues such as fat, muscles, blood, and so on. Many skin treatments are usually external applications such as creams or oils. These, however, never reach the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, the symptoms disappear temporarily and the disease is not completely ingrained. Ayurveda is always trying to eradicate the disease by specific treatment according to its cause. Because the disease is deeply associated, it is difficult to resolve the problem quickly. Ayurvedic skin treatments may take a few weeks to remove the symptoms but the diseases are treated permanently.
Two of the main causes of Ayurvedic diseases are a poor diet and a way of life that an individual follows consciously and unconsciously. After a diet or lifestyle that is against the season of a person or prakriti creates an imbalance in the energies of the body, thus contaminating the tissues of the body to produce a skin disorder. In Ayurvedic terms, although skin diseases are caused by imbalances in the three doshas, the main dosha involved is Pitta. Pitta symbolizes heat or fire. Therefore, all foods or activities that increase the element of fire in the body should be eliminated. This includes hot, spicy, fried foods, fat and fat. Sour foods like tomatoes, citrus fruits, yogurt and vinegar should be avoided. Exposure to heat and sun, drinking too much tea, coffee and alcohol, and smoking also aggravate pitta.
The technical treatment of the skin depends on the external application of the cream or the oil. It can help the symptoms temporarily fail because they never reach the deepest layer of skin. Ayurvedic treatment is only “deep in the skin”, always looking for Janeu’s disease to cure the disease, this problem goes to ayurvedic roots, especially due to each disease. It may take several weeks to show the symptoms of Ayurvedic skin treatment, but you can be sure of the complete solution.
Eczema, Psoriasis and Artisaria are the main cutaneous diseases that are seen in the Australian descent. These are considered due to external limitations, but are struck by external factors and do some enthusiasm in Wata.
Eczema is usually emotional poisonous internal problems and is due to the blood that drives the body to the surface and then appears in skin problems.
And large hives have both external and internal bodies such as eczema, due to allergic reactions to give the same type of reactions.
The Ayurvedic understanding that eczema is a great point stimulus is due to the little imbalance and with the smaller Vata and Pitta.
Ayurvedic leprosy is considered to be a minor form and because it will be on a very small scale at some level within eczema.
