Strees Management

Stress is termed as a mental or emotionally disruptive condition that occurs in response to some adverse external or internal influence.

It ultimately affects the physical health of an individual and manifests itself in the form of increased heart rate, a rise in blood pressure, muscular tension, irritability, anger, fear or depression.

Ayurveda considers stress to be linked to the presence of a substance in our metabolism called Ojhas. It is the essence of the immune system and is the major factor in providing the mind with both stability and contentment. Ojhas is produced within the body itself when food is consumed and proper digestion takes place.

Diagnosis Ė The Ayurveda Way

All treatments in Ayurveda are prescribed only after a careful diagnosis of the patientís body constitution, family history, sex, age, stage of the disease etc.

The first consultation with an Ayurveda doctor, including the diagnosis will last for more than an hour. The basic step in the diagnosis will be to find the personís body humour (Dosha) ĖVata, Pita or Kapha because it is the imbalance of these body humours that create every disease.

The dominance of dosha in a person is found by asking several questions on his behaviour, food habits, sleeping patterns, personal details like age, height & weight, place of life, profession, health problems and medical reports etc. Ayurveda diagnosis comprises of clinical and laboratory tests also. The doctor can decide if an Ayurveda treatment is helpful on providing these details.

Pulse, tongue, nail, and eye examinations are important diagnosis methods used to reveal a personís body humour and its imbalance. This will help the doctor in treating the disease. Pulse diagnosis in Ayurveda is not just counting the beats. It also reveals the health status of the entire body constitution, including the dosha imbalance and the health of the various body organs.

In tongue diagnosis, the doctor checks the general appearance, colour and coating of the tongue. In Ayurveda, as different areas of the tongue correspond to different organs of the body, the Ayurvedic practitioner can determine which organs of the body are out of balance by having a detailed tongue examination.

Nail examination is done to check the type, colour and shape of the personís nail. Imbalances of doshas are easily detected on close examination.

In the eye diagnosis, the colour, size and even the shape of the eyes are important in determining the dosha dominance of a person. His mental status,nervousness, anxiety, confidence level etc can also be learned through eye diagnosis.
