AYURVEDA AND SKIN DISORDERS

A
ccording to Ayurveda skin has seven layers. Each layer supports the layers above it.When all the layers are healthy and balanced; skin is effective in performing all functions.These layers are located not only superficially but extending to the deeper levels of the body. A skin disease is always rooted deeply into the Dhatus.

Mere external applications do not reach the deeper layers of the skin. As a result the symptoms go away temporarily and the disease is not taken care permanently. But Ayurveda focuses on the root cause of the disease and treats it accordingly. The medication may take a few weeks to remove the symptoms but the diseases are treated at a permanent level.

Skin Diseases are prevalent in rainy season as this is the time of Pitta aggravation. All the heat which is accumulated in summer season gets aggravated in the rainy season. Skin Disease in general is called as Kusta in Ayurveda. Majority of the skin diseases are chronic in nature.

CAUSATIVE FACTORS OF SKIN DISEASES

·         Intake of incompatible foods
·         Intake of excess preservative and toxic foods
·         Intake of foods like excess amount of curds, salt, fish, sesame and jaggery
·         Excessive exercise immediately after food
·         Exposure to hot and cold climate alternatively or taking cold bath immediately after exposure to
hot weather
·         Improper administration of panchakarma treatments
·         Suppuration of natural urges especially vomiting
·         Hereditary factors
·         Unhygienic conditions
·         Stress

Maharishi Ayurveda is very effective in treating the root cause of the disease and fixes the problems effectively, quickly and permanently.
When Doshas are vitiated in large quantity the skin diseases are treated by giving panchakarma treatments. This involves purification by giving basti, vamana, virechana, raktamokshana and nasya.
When doshas are minimally imbalanced palliative treatments are given. This involves administration of some herbal preparations internally and externally, proper diet and routine.
