Six ways to avoid back pain

Friday, July 12th, 2013

Ram is one of the healthiest guys I know. He eats well, runs regularly, and takes good care of himself in general. However, over the last three years, Ram has thrown out his back four or five times. Each time, he is crippled with pain that keeps him on the couch gulping pain killers like they were candy. It seems like every time he injures himself, Ram can’t remember doing anything strenuous. One time he was turning to reach for soap in the shower, and another, he was picking up a slip of paper from the floor—neither activities that would seem to trigger the kind of back pain he was experiencing. Visits to the doctor haven’t revealed anything dramatically wrong with Ram’s back; it just seems to go out from time to time.

If you’re like Ram, or if you’ve ever injured your back, you’re not alone. At one time or another 80 percent of Indians will experience some kind of back pain, and chances are that at one time or another, you will be among them. Whether your pain is a nagging ache in your low back or stabbing pain and spasms that make even the slightest movement painful, there are some things that you can do to prevent the pain from occurring in the first place. Among them:

Vitamin D is the new go-to vitamin

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Vitamin D seems to be the new go-to vitamin, helping anything from depression, skin conditions and low back pain to significantly reducing your cancer risk. But is it worth it to get it the “natural” way?

Our bodies produce vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. With all the fears of skin cancer about, and recent studies saying we are not able to produce vitamin D through sunblock, how can we get this glorious nutrient? Well, the average time it takes to get adequate amounts of vitamin D is about 20 minutes per day. Scientists and physicians are agreeing that the sun’s benefits greatly outweigh the risks. So, are we increasing our risk of skin cancer by getting 20 minutes of unfiltered sun per day? Well, that depends on your other risk factors:

Have you had bad sunburns in your youth?
Are you fair-skinned?
Has anyone in your family, or have you ever had skin cancer?

Integrative Ayurvedic healing for Parkinson’s disease

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

In the recent days of my practice at rVita, I have started getting inquiries on Parkinson’s disease management. Many patients/well wishers of rVita ask me – Can Ayurveda cure it? Is it a new disease? Can you improve the lifestyle of the patient?

On this context, I wanted to explain about how Ayurveda understands and deals with Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease also known in Ayurveda as ‘Kampa Vata’, is a neurological disorder affecting 1% of the population over the age 65 and is the fourth most common neurological degenerative disorder found in the elderly. Unfortunately changing life styles, high psychological pressures and reduced amount of anti-oxidants have increased the onset of this problem in younger age groups and the incidence has become very common.
