The best care



The disease prevention and health promotive approach of ‘Ayurveda’, which takes into consideration the whole body, mind and spirit while dealing with the maintenance of health, promotion of health and treating ailments is holistic and finds increasing acceptability in many regions of the world. It has been known since antiquity in Ayurveda that a connection exists between the skin and mind. Ayurveda described several factors like chinta, shoka, bhaya, abusing deities and teachers, different type of sinful activities and other forms of antirituals and antisocial activities which have a negative impact on the psyche/mind. This negative impact on mind leads to stress which in turn directly or indirectly plays a major role in the manifestation and aggravation of skin diseases (Kushtha rogas).

The psychological / psychodermatological approach of management of skin diseases (kushtha roga) in Ayurveda includes different pharmacological and non pharmacological tools. Pharmacological tools include mainly the use of Rasayanas. Non pharmacological tools include Daivavyapashraya and Satvavajaya Chikitsa. These have a positive impact on Manas and directly or indirectly lead to reduction in stress. Therefore the ultimate result is ➢ Reduction in frequencies of exacerbations. ➢ Improvement in clinical condition ➢ Increase ability to cope up with skin diseases. Ayurveda is highlighted as a holistic system with its concern for prevention and promotion of stress and mental health and maintaining a healthy balance of Manas and Sharira (mind & body). Ayurvedic medicines have great importance to keep body and mind free from diseases. The modern science of medicine slowly realized about chemical medicine that they have a devastating effect on several human systems by their side effects and toxicity and damage to the intestinal flora. Therefore, the whole world is looking towards Ayurveda to cure of different chronic diseases. Skin disorders are one of them, which is much difficult to treat.

Pharmacological therapy Pharmacological therapy in Ayurveda includes the use of different type of Rasayanas. In this stressful, ever busy and toxic environment, our natural health, happiness and inner sense of wellbeing are masked by the accumulation of impurities. A Rasayana (rejuvenation) therapy revitalises the sense, detoxify the body, and restore the health in normal state. Most of the drugs described for the management of skin diseases in Ayurveda have Rasayana properties viz. Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia Willd), Haridra (Curcuma longa Linn.), Shunthi (Zingiber officinale Rosc.), Pippali (Piper longum Linn.), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula Retz.), Amalaki (Emblica officinalis Gaertn), Bhallataka (Semecarpus anacardium Linn.), Chitraka (Plumbago zeylanica Linn.), etc.

It has been experimentally proved that Rasayana has good antistress activity. In an experimental study the whole, aqueous, standardized extracts of six Rasayana drugs administered orally to experimental animals, in a dose extrapolated from the human dose, following which they were exposed to a variety of biological, physical and chemical stressors. These plants were found to offer protection against these stressors, as judged by using markers of stress responses and objective parameters for stress manifestations. Rasayana drugs also exert a good degree of antiinflammatory and immunomodulating effect. In this way Rasayana drugs are helpful in controlling skin diseases
