“ I started Ayurveda with concerns of weakness of muscle ,lack of strength caused by Multiple Sclerosis.
It helped me regain my strength and energy after doing Virechna#, Basti# and Potli massage# therapies all done at the Ayurvedic Services Clinic.
I am continuing with Udvartana# to break the Cellulite# and help me lose weight# though I have already lost weight after previous therapies.
I am continuing with Shirodhara # for the nervous system and to strengthen my brain cells.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and the spinal cord (central nervous system).
In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problem between the brain and the body.
There is no cure for the disease though there are treatments available to help speed up the recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.
According to Ayurveda it’s a Sannipata disease where all the Tridoshas are vitiated causing interruption between Rasa Vaha and Majja vaha strotas. Strotas are the channels of the network of the functional pathways in the body. Interruption in the strotas causes ill health. Many diseases are caused by these blockages, e.g., High or Low Blood pressure, breathing problems, abnormal heart rhythm, lethargy, mental confusion, pains, swellings, skin issues etc. Accumulated toxins also play an important role in weakening the immune system.
All forms of this condition reflect typical ama pathology. As ama accumulates in the body it migrates through the blood circulation (pitta & kapha in Rasa & Rakta dhatu / strotams) and is deposited in various locations of the body. Once ama is deposited in a dhatu it begins to attack the tissue or it provides an environment favorable for viral or bacterial growth. This sticky ama can also cause inflammation of the tissue that it is attached to – either with or without bacterial infection. This occurs because ama is attached to the nerve tissue and the immune response tries to remove it. This results in the immunity attacking the nerve tissue which has difficulty to separate from the ama that has attached to the myelin sheath.
Ayurveda starts with the diet and lifestyle modification where a disease has occurred.
Dincharya (daily routine)
a. Wake up, go to toilet Drink warm water either before or after the toilet visit.
b. Apply a thin layer of sesame oil all over your body. Avoid putting it on your head and hair. Dress in comfortable clothes. Have a hot shower – dress to stay warm.
c. Put 1 or 2 drops of sesame oil in each nostril. Allow the oil to move to the back of the throat then blow your nose and remove all fluids.
d. Have a hot drink (ginger tea, etc.)
e. Do 10 minutes of alternate nostril breathing (Pranayam, Anulom Vilom)
f. Diet should be nourishing but simple
g .Eat breakfast – warm food in small amounts if not hungry. Warm food in larger amounts if hungry.
h. Go to work or other daily activity.
i. Mid-day – Eat lunch, warm food. Avoid cold raw foods as the only lunch. This should be a main meal in your day. Take at least 30 to 60 minutes break at mid-day.
j. Continue with your work or other daily activity.
k. Have a hot drink in the late afternoon (4.00 p.m.). Avoid sweets in any form.
l. Eat the evening meal earlier rather than later. You need to have 3 hours of time to digest your dinner before going to sleep. Avoid heavy foods and dairy products. This will give more energy in the morning. Eating earlier in the evening and allowing more time to digest will help stabilize the energy levels and reduce fatigue. Eat enough that you are not hungry later but not too much that you feel heavy.
m. Eat lighter than at mid-day. NO desert or snacks after eating. If there is a craving for sweets, sit for 10 minutes and repeat the breathing exercise.
0. Be in bed by 10.00 p.m.
The basic starting point is to increase immunity & ability to digest and assimilate the food.
Regular meal timings are very important. Discipline in daily routine helps which means” Meal and Sleep” timings to be established and followed. Early to bed and early to rise is the best for Sleep discipline.
Animal products and stimulants (coffee, alcohol), aerated drinks.
Acidic Food like Fatty & fried food and high protein diet. Fermented foods inclusive of bakery.
High sodium foods like sea foods, pickles etc. Processed foods, Stale food
All sweet carbonated beverages
Smoking cigarettes. All forms of alcohol.
Eating between meals, sweets and chocolate.
Use ginger tea plus digestive spices to increase Agni (digestive capacity).

name is James Maina.
came to the Ayurveda Clinic having a number of issues. Mostly draining fatigue
lack of focus… Foggy brain… Insomnia. Aching joints and a host of other
I had read up a bit
about Ayurveda and I was looking to try a more holistic approach to getting
better. Natural healing is what I sought. The concept of Ayurveda of body
energy balance is eye opening to say the least.
appointment was very helpful and after filling in the requisite form (which
asks very interesting questions) we started the Therapy.
The doctor is very
experienced and perceptive and encouraging. Her approach to the treatment is
holistic. She takes the time to listen with no hurry. The initial Therapy took
17 days and at the end of it a new me emerged.
In a very subtle
yet definitive way Ayurveda simply works!! . I am a convert.
1 month later I am a
totally different person. Higher energy levels. Sharp focus. Concentration
issues are solved. Insomnia is banished to a distant memory. Joints are getting
back to normal.
One has to make
certain adjustments to lifestyle choices but these are totally worth it. The
proof of the pudding is in the eating and I would definitely encourage everyone
who needs a holistic natural therapy to confidently try Ayurveda.
Dr Walia, Glad I could share my experience with others and encourage them
to walk this new path.
Keep up the good work.
Enhancing Immunity with Ayurveda
All of us have our own built in mechanism to protect us from foreign, harmful viruses, bacteria etc. This mechanism is called Immunity.
If our Immune system is strong, it can fight Flu, Corona and other viruses or can heal itself in case of minor injury. It is our inbuilt protection system. Everyone has it but some have strong and some have weakened immunity. There are multiple reasons for weak immunity.
Some babies are born with weak immunity and if special attention is not paid, they grow up facing digestive issues, catching cold etc. fast and getting sick often that continues as they grow older. Bringing up such babies becomes highly taxing for parents. It is important for wanting to be parents to prepare themselves with Ayurveda guidance to bring a baby with strong immunity into the world. A happy baby is a joy to everyone.
According to Ayurveda, all of us are born with specific constitution, i.e.Vata, Pitta or Kapha or a combination of 2 or 3 dominant Doshas.
Our diet and life style should be according to our Dosha. Deviation from it causes imbalance in Dosha and paves way to toxins (Ama) or free radicals in our body. These imbalances and toxins end up weakening our immune system and open welcoming doors to diseases.
To strengthen our immune system, our diet should be compatible with our Dosha.For example,Vata Dosha dominant people should not be eating dry foods as Vata is drying and with dry foods ,we enhance Vata and bring imbalance. To stay healthy, all the three Doshas should be balanced.
Our mix of food items should be compatible with each other. Eating incompatible food (Virudh ahar) paves way to toxins, like taking cold soda and ice-cream with or immediately after hot food or a bowl of incompatible fruits. Eating at the right time of the day is equally important. Food does not get digested if we eat at the Kapha time of the day and undigested food turns into toxins that left for a longer period get imbedded deep into tissues causing diseases.
This is the reason, people at a later age get sicker. It is not the age that makes people sick, it is our long term neglect of our diet , life style and lack of proper exercise that weaken the immune system Pollutants in the food, environment and our stresses and worries also create toxins.
Ayurveda guides us on the right diet and life style according to our constitution, season, time of the day and the compatible foods. This is the preventive aspect.
Curative aspect is balancing our Doshas and getting rid of accumulated toxins.Ayurveda’s Panchakarma system helps us in expelling the accumulated toxins and balancing our Dosha. Ayurveda detoxes like Virechna and Basti are for otherwise healthy people to get rid of toxins and balancing the Dosha.
Other Panchakrma therapies like Nasya,Abhyanga,Shirodhara, Katibasti etc.are for where diseases have already seeped in.
