Todays topic for discussion: Dry stool

Group 1:
Australia Vd. Khushdil: Ghee is the best option for Dry stool.. Need more Fibre in diet. Dates.. Khajur, Anjeer ...fig soak it overnight and have it in the morning at empty stomach ...the best resul I got without any doubts in two days...


Canada Nitin Shah: Bulk forming mucillagious agents such as psyllium and flex seeds along with Triphala and katuki can give the desired results


Anand Javeri: Consume a banana & Drink glass full warm water before bed.
This has helped one of my employees. ..warm water in the morning also on empty stomach. Fibrous food is also necessary. Psyllium with warm water before bed is a good way to get rid of dry stool.
Triphala is habit forming. Plus, our body gets resistant to it after some time & higher dosage is required.
Such is not in the case of Psyllium


Canada Nitin Shah: Triphala is rasayana and can be taken for a longer time and yes, it is bit drying and habit forming and that's why need to be combined with other herbs mentioned earlier.
Of course, vatagenic food should be consumed in minimal amount only


Anand Javeri: Also, those suffering from dry stool problem should avoid maida containing products like bread, biscuits, nankhatai & some puris, etc. Plus, they should increase their water intake.


Dipak Padia Osho: Minimum 3 liters of water to take daily. Avoid water immediately after taking food.After one hour of lunch and dinner take warm water. As per naturopathy best result obtains after maximum water input in the body which helps intestine for soft tools. New generation takes maximum aerated water which harms body. Make reminder in mobile to drink water every one hour which is safe and easy solution.


Vd. Dipam tripathi: Above all is....good...I want to add is
Hard stool is vata symptom...and best vata shamak is til (sesame) oil....
So in my practice i refer to pt. to take 10ml of black til tail with any warm liq...before dinner (apan vayu duahti shamak kaal for aushadh)


Group 3:
Vd. Manhar Prajapati: late night work causes for increase vata and result as a dry stool and also another cause related vata vardhak...trt is rukshan opposite snigdh like ghee or matra basti...or snigdha virechan like errand (castor)


Germany Helga Fuchs: Vata routine needed, no hurry or pressure, early to bed. If constipation is there, cop hot milk with tsp Ghee. Meditation and Pranayama help to relax mind.

Dr. Prerak Shah : We are not discussing constipation, we are discussing dry stool. Be clear for this. Thnx.


Chile Dr. Susana Valdes: If dry stools are there we have to control stool quality by diet and also reestore smooth of GI tract. For that we can give ghee at bedtime (dose depends on agni patient) for at least three months and Vata diet avoiding dry and cold food

Minoo parabia: Colon has phenomenal absorbing capacity. Therefore any medicine could also be administeted through colon...basti. if the body is not getting enough water, it will try to compensate by absorbing from food rendering stool dry. Ingestion of lots of cereals too require more water. Water intake therefore could be crucial. Mucilage can retain water like Pedalium, okra, Althea are helpful.


Argentina Dr. Fany Rosman: I agree with the above. It will be also usefull to drink / eat in the morning linseeds soaked overnight / eat oily food with vata balancing qualities. And lots of sede oil for externa lubricación.
Prerak dry stools and constipations are varying degrees of the same imbalance?


Minoo parabia: No absolutely not. Constipation is the body disorder because of varying reasons whereas dry stool is just habitual disregard to water intake

Group 4:
Vd. Neha dipam: Dry stool is cause of abhav of JAL tatva or sneh tatva and vat vrudhdhi…Basti treatment
and erand sneh is the treatment for dry stool

Vd. Rajal shukla: Liver tonic and erandbhrust haritaki churna


Group 5:
Surinder Pal Singh: Dry stool is condition of vata .drakshavleha  and  triphla ghrit is choice of medicine


Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: Dry stool:- Dosha:- Saman vayu, Apan vayu, Pachak pitta
It is mainly due to agnidushti. Pt. should avoid Ruksha and vatavardhak  aahara.
Sansarjana krama is helpful for Agnidushti.
Eranda and Sunthi are the choice of drug.


Surinder Pal Singh: .Dry stool - Matrabasti: castor oil + sindhav


Group 6:
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: 1/4 tea spoon  rock salt+1 tea spoon cow ghee in middle of meal gives good result in dry stool


Vd. Piyush Prajapati Palanpur: Reference in Astang Hradaya


Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Charaka Grahani chikitsa...very effective treatment...1:08


Vd.vimalben (Anand): I got result from dashmool kwatha basti and til tail or erand tail basti.... I think if peristalsis of intestine is disturbed then dry stool occurred.... And it is due to apan vayu vikruti... So basti can be apply, Even abhyang, svedana on udar (abdomen) is also helpful


Vd. Piyush Prajapati Palanpur: Astang Hradaya reference .. for Dry and Hard stool..
 पित्त रक्त विनिर्मूक्त समस्त आवरण आवृते
शुध्धे वा विध्यते वायौ न द्रव्यम लसूनत्परम

Dr. Prerak Shah and no other person is responsible for any unwanted effects, side effects or contra-indications in your health. Thank you.

Todays topic for discussion:  Cerebral atrophic changes

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi:  in MRI cerebellar atrophic changes, ANA is positive, genetic testing not done
hyporeflexia ++ diagnosed by neurophysician as progressive cerebellar ataxia, More details will be available after she will consult patient again. Thnx for yr interest.

Dr. Bharat Sharma: Atrophy is not death of substance. It always has rejuvenescence!
This is what crystal clear understanding of Ayurveda! Neurology is not Vata Dosha but Also Yantradhara! Allopathy system can diagnose but not treat most diseases .....so suggestion to continue this discussion @ Tartam level!

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: True... Vata is yantra tantra dhara... Yantra dhara mean hardware/anatomical..and tantra dhara mean soft ware/physiological.... So when vata becomes dearranged , it cause anatomical as well as physiological problems.... Aadhman (abdominal flatulance) = simple form of vata disorder, Sandhivata(osteo arthritis)= little bit complex form of vata vyadhi..Neurological problems(paxaghata, ardita, aaxep)= complex form of vata vyadhi

Vd. Neha Dipam : Chatursneh basti and nasya give good result in  case, Brahmi jyotismati and aswgandha punarnava kancha bij churn with ghrit, And same drug sidhdh ghrit nasy

Minoo Parabia: Ekangveer, Samirpannag, Brahmi+kauncha+hurmalbeej+asvagandha+abha+laxadi guggulu. Also Jyitishmati with Vatsnabh and suhaga. We are using as Nervon, Neuricalm, Spondygo. Had good results in multiple sclerosis. As well as in Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: shared MRI reports and findings
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Its hereditory ataxia, Frideric ataxia is hereditory problem, where dorsal columan and cerebellum are affected, Karyotypy done... No consanguineous marriage. I want to know age of patient…How old is she ? And what were the age of her parents at the time of pregnancy? Is pt needed help of others in routine?

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: 24 yrs age

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: I think its confirm diagnosis of freideric ataxia

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: for Frédéric genetic testing is negative

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Then its autoimmunity?

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: see above testing report. I have to talk with neurophysician ...bcoz 3 neurologist have seen the case and no one have put final remarks

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: SCA not detected

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: I have to read which genes r include in freideric/SCA

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: ANA positive

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: I personally beleive that there is no applicibility of such costly investigations... They have no full proof treatment of genetic problems and auto immune disorders  Ayurveda can do a lot in "Counselling of genetic problems and prevention of cytogenic disorder"

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: but its for to know our treatment outcomes...obviously genetic disease are not curable

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: We can give temporary relief...my seniors, my teachers said me that we should not do ayu treatment of DMD and other genetic problrms..but i wanted to know how much we can get result in these disorder and we worked on 7-8 pts in akhnadanand... We worked hard in panchakarma side for 1 year.. We made Majja sidhdha taila, raja yapana basti(mans ras yukata) ourselve, and used it on pts... I have reports of 2 pt..we even today get follow up from pts... Pts only got releif during therapy then there is no more releif...

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: yes...I also have same experience with genetic dis

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: In above case if there is degeration because of auto immunity than there will be good outcome. I think u should start treatment with keep autoimmune in mind

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: yes in freidrich GAA trineucliotide expansion -test is not done to confirm freidrich ataxia..so probably this is freidrich ataxia

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: As ANA is poditive

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: but ANA by immunoblot is negative

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani:  in freidrich , romberg sign is positive that indicate dorsal column involvement...dysarthria indicates cerebellar problems... And also see she would not have sense of joint position...romberg positive+dysarthria+loss of sense of joint position indicates most possibility of freiderich...

Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: yes these 3 signs r positive

Dr. Dipak Shirude: Oleation I.e. Snehan in every possible way should be on priority in such case .. The various ways for snehana can be decided according to the situation of the patient .. Yet this will not give the patient the immediate encouraging results .. He or she can be treated with param ( highest quality ) raskalpas for fastest changes .. .. . Oleation I.e. Snehan in every possible way should be on priority in such case .. The various ways for snehana can be decided according to the situation of the patient .. Yet this will not give the patient the immediate encouraging results .. He or she can be treated additionally with param ( highest quality ) raskalpas for fastest changes .. .. ..

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Sneha saroyam purusham..Prana sneha bhuyishtha...prana sneha sadhya ...

minoo parabia: We should not be deterred by the fact that the disease is genetic.
Ancient Ayurveda didn't know anything about the genetic governance of body. It did therefore attempt many times to treat such ailments. ...like Punsavan.
I take liberty to mention about the concept of Epigenetics. It believed that the behaviour and expression of genes could be influenced through external factors.
One must therefore keep on trying.  Majjabasti, as mentioned before  be tried

Dr. Sudhir Shah (Neuro-physician): vit E , cholergol tab , gingiko biloba , norways 45 mg three times a day , tab rilutor 50 mg bid along with b vitamins and good amount of PT…
Co enzyme Q is given 300 u /day .200-2000 units vit E ,idebenon ie norways 300 mg /day , green tea extract apart from those posted above are from modern medicine .
Serotonergic drugs like serraline and also buspirone may improve motor and affective skills

Sub.:  Excessive anger and it's management ayurvedic approach

Group 2:
Dr. Dipak Shirude: Ghrit pan, Mouktik pishti, Prawal pishti, Mrudwika
...............
Virechan
...............
Likely mind approach and making such situation
................
The best of all transcendental meditation

Group 3:
Germany Helga Fuchs: Exzessive Anger * rajasik behaviour in mind. Is there a real problem heal it or accept it. If both is not possible leafe it. Do not try to forget it, just know it is there. Learn to be unhappy and be strong enough to be with bad feelings. In this time you see clear it depent on situation or habits. Habit of others have nothing to do with your qualitys, but you can see the qualitys of the others.
Avoid situations or people who harm you.
For getting more stable and calm, regular meditation and pranayam, regular routine like foodroules, sleep and bodywork up to prakruti if yoga is not done. Flowers, sandal, pounds, rivers, swimming in cool and clean water, beautiful people, stillness. Rosewater and yasmin flowers, lotusflower on the heart, all this gives good feeling to the senses. Virecana and avoid spices like chili and garlic, raw unions. If one is weak in mind sattvic food is a need. Regular bodymassage and headmassage, padhabhyanga, cools down, make happy and give good and deep sleep. Brahmi, Bala. Ashwaghanda for patients who are weak in mind and Body, very slim patients is not good by depressed and overhelmed mind. It makes mind happy and more enthuastic and personal wrong thinking increase and patient feel very shure in his wrong habits. Changing of mind is only possible if we see our problem. Brahmi gives more strenght in the dissues and clears up. Nasya and Shirodhara with kseersbala, bala, triphala. Coriander. Burnout patients start most with anger but there is no way most time to clear the problem. She have to be with them. Weak nerves, wrong lifestyle and hunger or need for success break them down. Sometimes I work with a doctor of schoolmedicine who like Ayurveda. If he is on his end he send me the patient. Last got Psychotherapie, medicine... But after 8 weeks he was not able for work, sitting crying at home. Driving his car no possible. Ayurveda was last step before months in Psychiatrie. I got him and start with head face, back and footmassage and soft yoga for balance the braine, done advice for
 Rasayan due food. After 4.weeks, he was able to work again. Ayurveda knowlege I bow down. Sorry for my long storys. The underlying Problem of Anger is mostly to be afraid. To see how simple things helping so much. Dinacharya rouls are more important as foodroules I found out. Only good food on to Prakruti is nice, but without routine not much strong. The best is, patient learn a lot how Body is working and this safe him in future. If he is ready for little discipline. OM SAI RAM

Prof. Maltiben chauhan: Yes, it was very interesting work. thank you. To see how simple things helping so much. Dinacharya rouls are more important as food rules I found out. Only good food on to Prakruti is nice, but without routine not much strong. The best is, patient learn a lot how Body is working and this safe him in future. If he is ready for little discipline. OM SAI RAM

Germany Helga Fuchs: The best for anger I forget. Anger is used,  to bring others in the way to do what I want. I give them strange pressure. To heal anger is only possible, if mind understand, that, by this habit, I harm the other. If I like to be a better and strong human I have to stop to missuse others for my goals. If one understand this, he is cured from anger.

Argentina Dr. Fany Rosman: All is true, our body is a perfect temple working in perfect armony with nature. We must understand physiology and avoid pushing body toward external wrong temptations.
Thanks for your knowledge to restore armony. Fany

Argentina Majo: Thank you very much for sharing this higher knowledge in the holistic approach to the patient. I agree on the fact that sattvic food without dinacharya no further progress achieved. But at self knowledge of feelings and emotions, accept and recognize external factors lifestyle focusing on sucess that increase anger. With that knowledge and little routine and exercise we are going to the proper way. Om nama shivaia.

Germany Helga Fuchs: Yes Maria Jose' Fernandez, and this way is possible, because easy, worldwide for all.

Argentina Majo: Dear Helga thank you for your collaboration. I really enjoyed your comments on negative emotions and a simple but powerful approach to the problem. I appreciate your help.

Germany Helga Fuchs: Yes. I work with managers. This people are very busy and have problems in family and job with her temper. Most are Pitta Prakruti too. Men understand it faster as women's. I wonder about that. My personal meaning about that is, that a men like to care for his people, his problem is only his temper. And most feel very sad if his temper kills a situation. And he like to be great. And most know how to work with a strategie. Give them one and he will try it and enjoy it. The results are seen and felt fast and all are in better condition. Only possible with intelligent people. Tamasik people have no such interest.

Argentina Majo: Yes!!I is very interesting the different conscience about feeling &emotions in women and men ,I am  gynecologist ... we can realize    about emotions and an emphatic role in our medical practice can make a difference in the treatment of many stressed persons.At the same time working on a major quality of life for the society. .Thank you for your collaboration. Lovely meeting.

Chile Dr. Susana Valdes: Hi, I am from Chile. At least here, people doesn¨t know about mind, about emotions, feelings, thoughts. How mind functions, what are they areas, and that we are beyond our mind, Here people tends to think you are your mind, and from that point of view, sometimes is every difficult for them to control

Argentina Angi TEJADA: Depend the cultural behaviour something is good and another is bad - all the people look for to be happy .

Germany Helga Fuchs: This is all over the world, in India too. But Ayurveda know a lot, not only about mind. Psychic disturbances, very difficult ones are written down so excellent, that you only can say, by by western psychotherapy, first mister Jung. He got all his knowing from India science but he only shows little in his work and no clear way out. There are very deep knowing about gynecology in Ayurveda about Ayurvedic gynologica and chirurgy. You can save unborn life's only to follow the routine. Maria Jose Fernandez, it must be like heaven for you. But this is not topic now. Sorry.

Chile Dr. Susana Valdes: yes, I am working with people of a foundation for kids, and I am teaching them the way Ayurveda understand mind. It is very interesting and usefull for them. and of course, for me

Germany Helga Fuchs: Thank you Prerakbhai for your pic above. It is very interesting. clear and helpful,  it shows the natural movement of duality of natur. If one start something to reach a goal, Ayurveda says he will feel the wall (Tamasik) to go there. But step by step our strenght get stronger and the wall smaller. By natur the wall is all time not higher as the strenght. This to know is very useful, to deal with problems in all direction in life. Treatments in Ayurveda for Pranavata, Udana, clear out the blockage special on that levels, who your pic show us. But simple massage, well done, works on mind very strong. Vata is master and controller of movement. Soulmovement and mindmovement are done by vata, as bodymovement to. Vata is rajasica natur and  Manodosha as rajas and tamas are needed for activity in all life directions. But to overcome the blockages in your pic, we need the Manasaguna (sattva). Without them it is no deeper healing in mind. To build Sattva I see, treatments not enough. Treatments give cleaning and relaxing shure, results are more calmness in body and mind, great, but no deeper change of mindquality. Routine is to hold this stabil and give the body and nervtissue more strenght. Some speaking here of Ojas and good Immunsystem. Men can deal with problems better and in Kaphaprakruti we have this benefits stronger. But to overcome a blockage is more as to deal well with the given problem. Here I found the Yogi technics only, to go further. I do not speak of asanas here. I speak about higher techniks. Ayurveda and Yoga is a couple, who works hand in hand. Ayurveda deals more on bodylevel annamayakosh and pranamayakosh. Manomayakosh and anna and prana in yoga. Do we have here Doctors who can say more about that? Anger was the topic. By strange problems I know only about cleaning the mind due treatments like Vaman, Nasya, Shiro, sometimes Basti , because in deeper mindproblems it creates some problems more most time, and Raktamoksha. Medicin, Speaking, Calming, Pranayama. I for myself use in no time a Single Shiro for relaxing. Only as cure for Minimum sehen days. It works wonder by mentalstress, but not well done it creates problems. Many using Shiro for wellness but I think this is wrong.  Please Doctors clear out if there is a missunderstanding and share your Inspiration and professional knowing. Thank you.

Group 4:
Dr. Dipa Mehta: In anger shirodhara, counseling with spiritual approach more beneficial
In excessive anger shirodhara with chandanbala lakshadi and pratimarsh nasya with cow ghrut give good result. For internal use shankhpuspi, jatamansi like tikta ras and madhur virya ausdhi are useful. Padtal abhyanga and pranayam also very good for same.


Group 5:
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: Excessive anger is one of the cause of Headache.
Also Palitya, Hypertension  etc..
-Pitta  dosha,mansik dosa raja
-Anger is also lakshana of Pitta prakriti.
- Avoid Excessive taking of spicy, salty food.
- Meditation is the best treatment.
- Pratimasha nasya is also helpful.
- Pittashamaka drug like Shatawari, Yashtimadhu, Mustaka are useful..
- In ayurveda Excessive anger not a disease but Nidana(Hetu-cause) of many diseases.

Group 6:
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: I treated a pt(auto driver) c/o. excessive anger, vertigo, excessive sweating and hypertension. I prescribed him Dhamaso (???)  kwath with cows ghee(chakradatta- bhrama chi.) and go ghruta nasya. He got complete relief within week. Anger is characteristic of pitta prakriti so pitta shamak medhya rasayan is always worked..

Vd. Bhavesh Thakkar: Anger is not a diseases. It is a conditioning of mind. De- conditioning can be done only through meditation. I would advice yoga. (Not just asana ). Many a times  anger can be seen as a symptom of other diseases. Treating the main disease will automatically cure Anger. I.e. unmad. Anger (Krodh) is seen in people of tamasik. mansik prakriti. - satvik aahar vihar should be suggested to them
