How to Relief from chronic back pain, naturally ?

Relief from chronic back pain, naturally




Vertebral Column, a collection of 33 vertebrae, is the basis of most bodily movements, and so it's prone to a large number of ailments. These rubber-like discs help support body weight, transmit body weight in walking and standing and work as a shock absorber.
There's an increased chance of pain in back and neck due high level of movement, practicing wrong posture and degeneration. 
 

Diseases affecting the back:

-Damages may occur in many parts of the back like the disc, bones, muscles, and nerves.
-Heavy blow or ageing can result in degeneration of the disc, bringing the vertebrae closer. 
-When the disc suffers from oedema, the vertebrae look as if they have moved apart as it widens of the vertebrae. 
-The protrusion of the disc and its sliding can also cause immense pain. 
-The wear and tear of the bones, spondylosis or arthritis of the joints, low density of bones, and tumours are all disorders related to bone. 
-Oedema of the nerves, disintegration covering due to diabetes and waning of nerves due to deficiency of certain vitamins etc, can cause back pain.
 

Prevention of Back Pain:

While standing, sitting, or walking, be sure to practice correct posture.

Cracking the wellness code!


Cracking the wellness code!

Wellness cannot be termed just as a physical activity. It's rather a state of being.
True wellness is a holistic state of physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual balance, which has become a luxury in today’s world.




Ayurveda gives utmost importance to wellness. It can be achieved by balancing 3 Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) and the mind.
Ayurveda focuses on maintaining overall health by promoting individual wellbeing and preventing diseases from occurring.
We all know that prevention is better than cure, but do we actually put this into practice? No, we don't, until our lifestyle habits make us fall sick and we reach almost a point of no return.
We, at Agni Ayurvedic Village, promote wellness as our prime motto. That's why we are not just an authentic Ayurvedic centre but a wellness retreat with a comprehensive approach to overall wellbeing. 
Panchakarma is a set of five detoxification therapies that cleanse your entire internal system and remove toxins. It’s followed by Rasayanachikitsa to replenish and restock each and every cell with loads of nutrition.
Please feel free to consult with our doctors to know more about achieving wellness

Vasant Ritu





Vasant Ritu is a part of Ritucharya where ritu means seasons and charya means to follow a certain routine. Therefore according to Ayurveda, Ritucharya means seasonal routine and by following proper lifestyle and diet according to the current season will help to stay away from seasonal diseases. Here Vasant Ritu is the duration from mid March to mid May.

Vasant Ritu is the Spring season where flowers bloom and the nature looks all beautiful and charming bringing happiness into our minds. As per Ayurveda, Vasant Ritu is the best season for detoxifying and cleansing our body. 

During this season, the kapha dosha gets aggravated and accumulated as during the last season that is the winter season, the digestive fire was high and consumption of heavy foods and sweets were more causing toxins to accumulate. So if the kapha dosha is not arrested and taken care of at this stage then it could cause infections and indigestion as during Vasant Ritu the digestive fire is diminished.
Therefore it is extremely important that during this season we stay active and consume light and healthy food as it helps in removing all the toxins from the body.



Diet and lifestyle you should follow this season:

Just as the nature is already removing the toxins during the Vasant Ritu by changing its weather from cold to warm, our body must also be ready to melt all the toxins that have accumulated from the previous season.


Since our digestive fire is low it is recommended to have foods which are light and easily digestible. One should avoid oily, sweet, cold items like curd, cold drinks, etc. as they give rise to Kapha and just increases the toxins in our body. 


Foods like Toor dal, Moong dal, Masoor dal, Rice(small quantity), Honey, Pepper, Cinnamon, Milk, Butter, Turmeric, etc. will be helpful to stimulate digestion and detoxify the skin.
Working out and exercising for 40 minutes to 1 hour every day is recommended as it helps to burn all the fats and toxins accumulated in the body making you more active and healthy.


Ayurvedic treatments that is beneficial during Vasant Ritu


Choorna pinda swedanam- They are massages that are given to the body with the help of a bolus or potli containing medicated powder. Potlis are heated in medicated oil and lightly pounded over the body. This therapy is very useful for improving muscle strength, alleviates sore muscles and joints, and removes body pain and stiffness.

Shashtisali pinda swedanam- Same procedure as choorna pinda swedanam, but here potli/ bolus massage is done with medicated rice and milk. It is a therapeutic massage which helps to calm and nourish the body and strengthen the muscles.

Swedanam-  Medicated steam is used for relieving pain and swelling, muscular spasms and other disorders like paralysis, obesity etc. various types like peti swedanam (steam box), Nadi swedanam (medicated steam through tube), ksheeradhoomam (steam of medicated milk) are very efficient treatments in Ayurveda.

Vamana- Vamana is therapeutic vomiting which is a medicated emesis therapy. It helps in alleviating and assembling the toxins in an effort to eliminate them from the upper gastrointestinal tract.


Therefore by adapting a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, also detoxifying yourself with our authentic Ayurvedic therapies, we can prevent ourselves from seasonal diseases like allergies, cold, flu, hay fever, etc. caused by seasonal variations during Spring Season i.e. Vasant Ritu.
