Ayurveda for Treating Addictions

 




Why do individuals become addicted?

People who are addicted, in most cases (with the exception of terrible scenarios such as kids born hooked due to their mother's addiction), begin by just seeking more pleasure and satisfaction in their lives. Their lives are complicated and miserable; their relationships may be difficult and unfulfilling; they may be dissatisfied and pressured at work; and they just don't know what to do. 

As a result, individuals turn to drugs or alcohol to avoid the reality of their situation. Whether the addictive drug is cigarettes, marijuana, alcohol, or something else, it quickly becomes a chemical reliance rather than a psychological escape. 

The person's brain therefore fails to function correctly unless a particular level of the addictive chemical is present in the blood.

Treatment is determined on the severity and duration of the addiction. A person with a weaker addiction, such as a recent smoking habit, may be able to easily cease. When a chronic alcoholic suddenly quits drinking, however, alcohol withdrawal syndrome develops, which is difficult to manage.

 

Detox and Cleanse

It is critical to undergo panchakarma, an effective Ayurvedic cleaning and detox treatment, to effectively tackle the problem of addiction. Panchakarma therapies are available in an Ayurvedic clinic, as well as a through a home panchakarma regimen.


REDUCTION OF THE DOSE

Reduce the dosage of the addictive chemical as part of this cleaning treatment. According to Ayurveda, it is not a good idea to entirely quit taking the addictive chemical all at once unless powerful treatments to cope with withdrawal are available, otherwise a stressful withdrawal syndrome would most likely ensue.

• We must strengthen the an effected organs in the case of nicotine toxicity (which affects the lungs and cardiovascular system) and alcohol toxicity (which affects the liver).


Use the following recipe to treat alcohol toxicity:


3 parts of chitrak 3 parts of kutki 3 times a day, take 12 teaspoon of these herbs with 2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice.

A bitter wine derived from aloe vera juice is recommended by Ayurveda. (It's known as kumari asava.)

A person who is addicted to alcohol can consume modest amounts of this mild, dry wine instead of strong liquor or other alcoholic drinks.

• 4 teaspoons diluted in an equal quantity of water is a good starting point. Then, while utilizing the aforementioned herbal formula to strengthen the injured liver, gradually lower the amount of herbal wine in the dosage.



Use the following recipe to treat tobacco toxicity:


Remove one-third to one-half of the tobacco from each cigarette (light at the end), then fill the paper with a mixture of rose petals, brahmi, and jatamamsi for a nicotine addict (equal proportions). 

Smoke until the tobacco begins to burn. Put out the cigarette as soon as the tobacco begins to burn.


NASAL MEDICINE

Nicotine toxicity is reduced by doing nasya with brahmi ghee.


EXERCISE

When a person has a strong urge to drink or smoke, he or she should usually go for a stroll in the fresh air.



WHEN TO GO SEE THE DOCTOR


If a person has a severe alcohol addiction and gets headaches, tremors, sleepiness, depression, or other alcohol withdrawal symptoms after they quit drinking, they should consult a doctor soon. 

Also, go for a swim, or do some other type of exercise to destress and vent excessive anxiety.



STIMULATION OF THE APPETITE


Some individuals drink because they don't have enough food to eat. They never feel hungry unless they have a drink.

Instead of drinking alcohol, individuals can drink ginger tea to enhance their appetite. 


Alternatively, try this tea recipe to activate Agni, the digestive fire:


  • 1 quart water Agni Tea 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 12 handful ginger root, chopped 2 tblsp Sucanat (or other sugar substitute) a teaspoon of rock salt (between 18 and 12 teaspoons) 
  • In a saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and set it aside to cool for a few minutes before adding the juice of half a lime. Lime juice should not be cooked.


ASANAS IN YOGA. 

  • Some yoga movements would be beneficial as well. 
  • Sun Salutations and alternate nostril breathing should be added. 
  • Meditation in the So-Hum style will also be beneficial.

Ayurvedic Healing Pastes for Your Skin


 

Ayurveda Pastes to Heal Your Skin:


Here are three pastes you may manufacture and use on your skin at home. They have the potential to be effective in the treatment of acne.


1.       Make a paste out of 1 teaspoon chickpea flour (available at Indian grocery stores and natural food stores) and enough water to cleanse your face with it.

2.       After rinsing, use one of the following methods: Make a paste using almond powder and a little water and apply it to your face. Allow it to dry and stay on your skin for up to 30 minutes before rinsing it off. (You may manufacture your own almond powder in a coffee or nut grinder.)

3.       A paste made from sandalwood and turmeric powders with goat's milk is skin-healing. To prepare a paste, combine 14 teaspoon turmeric and 12 teaspoon sandalwood powder, then add sufficient goat's milk. Make a mask out of this mixture and apply it to your face.

 

Note that your skin will seem yellow for up to 5 days, however this combination is quite effective in treating acne.

Ayurvedic Home Remedy for Acne

 



Spots and pimples are frequently associated with pitta dosha and rakta (blood) issues in Ayurveda. Taming fiery pitta and clearing the blood of toxins are the keys to controlling these often-distressing illnesses.


  • Excess pitta can cause spots, discomfort, and redness when it circulates in the circulation and accumulates in the outer layer of the skin.
  • Acne patients are frequently prescribed oral and topical antibiotics, as well as steroid skin treatments, in conventional treatment.
  • Antibiotics can alter the delicate balance of your natural gut flora when used for lengthy periods of time, while steroids impair the skin's structure.

Ayurvedic therapies, which focus on decreasing pitta dosha and cleansing the blood, can be particularly successful for milder forms of acne and infrequent outbreaks.


  1. Cleanse Blood: Toxins must be removed from the bloodstream through proper digestion. Asparagus, cucumber, and leafy greens are all relaxing, pitta-reducing meals.
  2. Warm water flavored with a generous squeeze of lime juice, which is abundant in antioxidants, can also help clean the blood. Control your dairy consumption.
  3. Dairy can be consumed in moderation, but it should not be combined with foods that are incompatible.
  4. When eating dairy with fruit or fish, pitta is increased. Hard cheese is tamasic, which means it causes heaviness and sleepiness. This can lead to incorrect digestion, which can lead to further breakouts.
  5. Relax and unwind. Stress can also cause or aggravate spots and acne due to an overabundance of pitta dosha.

Paste for healing


This therapy will reduce inflammation and is prepared with soothing sandalwood, turmeric, and rosewater.

  1. Mix half a teaspoon of gram(chickpea) flour with half a teaspoon of sandalwood powder and a sprinkle of turmeric powder.
  2. Stir in a few drops of rosewater to make a smooth paste.
  3. Apply to the skin's afflicted regions and leave for 10 minutes.
  4. Rinse your skin gently and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Remove any residue with a cotton pad soaked in rosewater.

Ayurvedic Recipe for Balancing Cholesterol

 



High cholesterol is produced by increased kapha dosha and a disruption of the meda dhatu, or fat tissue, according to Ayurveda. Keeping cholesterol in control requires balancing kapha and maintaining a healthy meda dhatu.

Cholesterol, a lipid produced by the liver, is required for optimal body function, but too much can block arteries. Excess kapha dosha and an excessively fatty diet are common causes of high cholesterol.

Following Ayurvedic diet guidelines and exercising regularly to counterbalance kapha's static and dense features with vata's mobility can keep kapha dosha in control.

 

Bitter greens can help you cut through kapha's heavy, sticky, and greasy properties in your diet. Season sautéed greens with a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lime juice; the sharpness and acidity will help to minimise kapha. This is a wonderful and kapha-reducing side dish for any dinner.

 

Ingredients—serves 1

• 2 large handfuls of a mixture

of shredded greens, such as kale,

mustard greens, spinach, chard,

and fenugreek leaves

• 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced

• 1 small red chile, finely sliced

• 11⁄2 tsp in total of equal parts

fenugreek, fennel, cumin, coriander,

and mustard seeds

• 1

⁄2 tsp turmeric powder

• 1 tsp organic ghee

• Pinch of rock salt

• Squeeze of lime juice

 

Instructions

Fry the garlic for a few seconds in the ghee, then add the chile and spices before adding the greens. Mix well and cook for a few minutes. Toss the greens with the salt and lime juice on a serving platter.
