CALCIUM :- Is the mineral which occurs in bones in our body. Calcium is responsible for bone health. Also, calcium plays numerous function in the body provide the bone mass, transmission of never impulses, carry out blood clotting process muscle function. Bones are the main storage site of calcium in the body. When your body didn’t get enough calcium from food then calcium stored in bones absorbed by the body. Which causes weakening of bones and growth of bones shunted.
Bone density refers to how much calcium & other minerals are present in a section of your bone. Bone density is higher in young age & it becomes low day by day. Low bone density results in brittle & fragile bones. Means bone breaks easily even without fall or other injuries.
Vitamin D also prevent chronic diseases like cancer, heart diseases, diabetes, auto immune disease & osteoporosis. without vitamin. D our body can only absorb 10- 15 % of dietary calcium. & when vitamin D is added then calcium absorption increase by 30 – 40 %. So Both calcium & vitamin D is necessary to prevent osteoporosis.
Vitamin D easily obtained from sunlight. Calcium deficiency can also lead to mood problems like anxiety, depression & difficulty in sleeping.
Calcium supplement not only required at old age but it is essential during growing age & lactating phase.
Hormonal imbalance also responsible for calcium loss. Hormones take some calcium loss. Hormonal take some calcium out of the bones every day to keep calcium level normal. This contributes to bone loss hence after menopause, calcium becomes more on lower side resulting body becomes more prone to osteoporosis.

Our body is made up of lots of substances likes bones, tissues, muscles, nerves, organs, blood and many more things. For maintenance of life and maintenance of organs, lots of cellular reactions occur in our body. From this cellular reactions, free radicles are produced as a byproduct in the daily basis. Excess production of this free radicals damage the cell wall and produces diseases of cardiovascular system, cancers, Alcheimeris arthritis etc.
Oxidation is the process which produces free radicals. This free radical present in our body in form of ROS ( Reactive oxygen species ), Hydroxyl radical (OH), Superoxide radical(O2) nitric oxide ( NO). This free radicals attacks on protein, DNA and lipid resulting into cellular damage. When it attacks lipid it forms cardiovascular diseases when it attacks DNA it forms cancer and when it attacks protein and bones it forms arthritis.
Antioxidants are the molecules which can react with free radicals and neutralize or terminate them and prevents the cells from oxidative damage.
Antioxidants include some vitamins like Vitamin C and Vitamin E, Some minerals like selenium and flavonoids which are presents in plants. The best source of antioxidants is fruits and vegetables.
Beta carotene presents in green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, broccoli, carrots, and berries basically in red and green fruits and veggies. It is very beneficial for eyes. It reduces the risk of vision loss and cataracts. It also presents muscular damage to eyes.
Flavonoids present in ayurvedic herbs like. Tulsi, punarnava, kanchanar, palash. It is beneficial for the heart. Selinium is very effective in cancer and thyroid disorders, Selenium is presented in mushroom, beans, chia seeds, sunflowers and sesame seeds.
Antioxidants also help in cognitive problems like dementia. Antioxidants not only helps in disease management but it also helps in building up of immune system and detoxification of body.
Hence eat fruits and veggies which are rich in antioxidants
PCOD explained under “Yonivyapad Adhyaya” by Acharya Charak. mainly tri doshas with Rasa, rakta and meda dhatus involved in this pathogenesis. In which Kapha is predominant. Kapha Affected digestive fire means
Jathragni Mandya which starts to affect the metabolic aspects of seven dhatus. Another thing is there is involvement of Aartav- vaha strotras and block the proper formation of tissues and cells.
Hence we thought about PCOD we have to think about all these mentioned factors.
Vaman- Through vaman expulsion of vitiated kapha done. Vaman also purifies internal toxins and balances hormonal system. It also acts on the pancreas to stimulate proper amount of insulin.
Virechan- It is for the expulsion of vitiated Pitta. It also acts on liver hence it helps in for metabolism of body . Pitta and rakta are internally connected hence purification of rakta also done by virechanam.
Basti- Medicated oil or decoction is given through rectum. It mainly acts on Vata doshas. Basti of sahachar tail helps in ovulation and basti of dashmu tail helps in menstrual problems.
Uttarbasti- Uttar Basti is very effective treatment for the gynecological problem. It helps in purification of Aarta- vaha strotras and pacification of Apana Vayu.
Obesity means our body mass index BMI is more than 27. Excessive accumulation of fat in the body causes obesity. In a day we consume near about 1600-2000 calories and only 1000-1200 calories utilization done by yourself means near about 600-800 calories remain in the body. this leads to excess deposition of fat in the body and causes obesity.
Increased body fat put the person at risk of critical diseases like heart diseases, diabetes, kidney diseases, liver diseases arthritis and much more
Acharya Charak explained obesity in ” Asthnidit Adhaya ” It is known as Medoroga. It is called by aggravation of Kapha.
Kapha is normal state provide nourishment to tissues through various microchannels, but when it is aggravated it leads to the production of toxins in the body. These toxins accumulate in channels and causing obstruction of channels.
In medoroga, the toxins accumulate in medovah strotas and leading to increased production of medadhatu.
Hence if you want to treat obesity its first step is the purification of Kapha dosha and 2nd step is cleansing and medovah strotas (fat channels) through medicines and panchakarmas.
Pacification of Kapha doshas done by ” vaman”. Vaman means the elimination of doshas through vomiting. It is done by medicated decoction of madanphala and yastimadhu. After vaman 7 days ” Sansarjana Karma” means diet schedule followed by the patient which leads to the elimination of doshas and ulceration of agni means digestive power. Vaman also helps in cleansing of small channels.
After vaman virechan should be done. It is for pitta dosha but the doshas which remain in body even after vaman should be removed by virechan therapy. It also causes cleansing of medovah stroas.
Panchakarma like vaman-virechana does not help in weight reduction it helps in “Reduction of fat”.
Fat reduction is more important than weight reduction. If you reduce fat then you can protect yourself from heart diseases, diabetes, arthritis, diabetes, and others.
Diet and lifestyle-
-Avoid high carbohydrates like potato, polished, rice.
Increase intake of fruits and salads
avoid oily and spicy foods drink of lukewarm water with lime

Ayurvedic View About Insomnia
In India Ayurveda, Insomnia is known as Anidra. According to the Ayurvedic perspective, the doshas (Ayurvedic humors) responsible for this disease are Tarpak Kapha, Sadhak Pitta or Prana Vata.
Tarpak Kapha is a sub-dosha of Kapha (Water). It nourishes the brain cells and facilitates a good night’s sleep. Imbalance of this dosha causes poor nourishment of brain cells, leading to Insomnia. Sadhak Pitta is a sub-dosha of Pitta (Fire) and is located in the heart. It controls emotions, desires, decisiveness, and spirituality. Its imbalance makes a person demanding and workaholic, thereby leading to situations that may cause lack of sleep. Prana Vata is a sub-dosha of Vata (Air). It is linked to insomnia, worry, anxiety, and problems like depression. Prana Vata makes the nervous system sensitive; this sensitive nervous system coupled with an aggravated Prana Vata lead to insomnia.
In each India patient, different combinations of doshas can lead to the disease. The Ayurvedic treatment of Insomnia focuses on balancing the aggravated body energies through herbal medicines as well as customized diet and lifestyle plans. Besides that, relaxation of mind is also an important part of the treatment.
Who gets Insomnia?
Approximately 50% of adults in India experience occasional bouts of insomnia and 1 in 10 complain of chronic insomnia. Insomnia is approximately twice as common in women as in men and is more common in older than younger people.
Kinds of Insomnia
There are two kinds of insomnia:
Primary insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems that are not directly associated with any other health condition or problem.
Secondary (co-morbid) insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems because of something else, such as a health condition (for example, asthma, depression, arthritis, cancer, or heartburn); pain, the medicine they are taking; or a substance they are using (such as alcohol).
Insomnia also varies in how long it lasts and how often it occurs. Insomnia can be short-term (acute insomnia) or can last a long time (chronic insomnia). It can also come and go, with periods of time when a person has no sleep problems. Acute insomnia can last from one night to a few weeks. Insomnia is called chronic when a person has insomnia at least three nights a week for a month or longer.
There are still other ways to classify insomnia. One of the most common forms of insomnia is called psychophysiological (“mind-body”) insomnia. This is a disorder of learned, sleep-preventing associations, such as not being able to sleep because either your body or your mind is not relaxed. People with this insomnia usually have excessive, daily worries about not being able to fall or stay asleep when desired and worry that their efforts to fall asleep will be unsuccessful. Many people with this condition are concerned that they will never have a good night of sleep again.
Stress is the most common cause of psychophysiological insomnia. While sleep problems are common when going through a stressful event, some people continue to have sleep problems long after the stressful event is over. Sometimes the stress and sleep problems create an ongoing, worsening cycle of each problem.
In addition to stress, what are other causes of Insomnia?
Causes of acute insomnia can include:
Other significant types of life stressors (job loss or change, death of a loved one, moving)
Emotional or physical discomfort
Environmental factors such as noise, light, or extreme temperatures (hot or cold) that interfere with sleep
Things that interfere with a normal sleep schedule (jet lag or switching from a day to night shift, for example)
Causes of Chronic Insomnia include:
Pain or discomfort at night
What are the symptoms of Insomnia?
Symptoms of insomnia include sleepiness during the day, general tiredness, irritability, and problems with concentration or memory.
How is Insomnia diagnosed?
If you think you have insomnia, talk to our health care provider. An evaluation may include a physical exam, a medical history, and a sleep history. You may be asked to keep a sleep diary for a week or two, keeping track of your sleep patterns and how you feel during the day.

Water is important for the organism because it maintaining the body fluids regulates the body temperature, lubricates the eyes and joints, protects the tissues, spinal cord, and joints, removes toxins, improves digestion, controls calorie intake and maintaining the skin health.
Hydration is essential because when the body lacks water does not function properly. You can improve your hydration level by consuming water and foods rich in water.
In the situations when the body loses weight for example during workout, diarrhea, vomiting, frequent urination, diabetes or excessive sweating leads to the imbalance of the electrolytes in the body which lead to dehydration and impeded bodily functions.
It is crucial for your health to know how to recognize the symptoms when your body is dehydrated:
1.Bad breath and dry mouth
A growth of bacteria in the mouth can be caused when the mouth is dry and the body cannot produce enough saliva. This leads to mouth dryness and bad breath.
2.Headaches and lightheadedness
Lack of water in the body can affect on the fluid that surrounds the brain and protects from mild bumps and movement. The dehydrated body has not enough blood flow to the brain so the supply of oxygen is reduced. A Recent study which was published in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology states that one of the possible reasons for migraines and tension-type headaches can be insufficient water in the body. So, the next time you’re about to reach for a painkiller, you should drink a glass of water instead. If the cause for a headache was dehydration, the headache will soon go away.
Lack of water in the brain can have a negative influence on your decision making, mood, and memory. Moreover, dehydration can lead to forgetfulness and trouble focusing, thinking, and communicating-known symptoms of brain fog. A 2013 study published in Clinical Autonomic Research, dehydration, along with fatigue, lack of sleep, and prolonged standing, is one of the most frequent triggers of brain fog.
4.Constipation and other digestive problems
Water is responsible for lubrication of the digestive system and participates in the part of cleansing. With proper water amount the bowel movements are regular and constipation is never happening. But when the body has lack of water, the stool became hard which leads to constipation. Also lack of water activates heartburn and indigestion.
5.Joint and muscle ache
The joints and cartilages are consisted of 80% water, and, if the body is in need of water, the bones begin grinding against each other, thus, causing joint pain. A 2008 study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology showed that the amount of water is crucial in modulating the hormonal and metabolic responses to resistance exercises
You are not always hungry when you are experiencing food carving. Sometimes your body is trying to tell you that needs water. Next time, do not grab right away those snacks, but instead have a glass of water. When the body is dehydrated sends mixed up messages to the brain, instead of thirsty the brain recognizes as carvings for food.
7.Reduced urination and change in color of the urine
Normal state of going to the bathroom is with pauses of few hours. When you are not going in the bathroom on every few hours it is a sign that your body lacks water. Normal urination supposed to happen 4 to 7 time per day anything less than that points out the your body lacks water. Urination is the natural way of removing toxins from the body . Changed color of the urine means that you are not consuming enough amounts of water, when your urine is in dark color it tells you that your body is dehydrated.
Study form 2014 showed that dehydration has negative influence on performance. For every 1% change in body weight resulting from dehydration, the heart rated changes in an average of 3 beats per minute.

9.Dry skin and lips
In order the skin to remain in good condition and elastic it need certain amounts of water. Low levels of water can lead to less sweating meaning that the body is not capable to remove the oil and the dirt accumulated in the pores or on the skin. Dry lips are one sign that your body is dehydrated.

Insufficient water amounts in the body are known to lead to sleepiness, fatigue, and lethargy. Also, when a person is dehydrated, the body is additionally stressed and it has to work much harder on ensuring proper blood circulation, transportation of nutrients, and breathing, which results in tiredness.

There are two kinds of joint problems in Ayurveda. The first one, vatadosha is a disorder that evolves out of an imbalanced Vata or the central controller of the mind and body. Poor circulation, digestion, and metabolism are some of the major symptoms of vatadosha. The another cause of painful joints is poor orthopedic health that can be contributed by both low nourishment and arthritis.
