Migraine (Ardhavabhedaka) in Ayurveda | Migraine Headache Treatment in Ayurveda

Headache is caused by many situations like;  flues, indigestion, colds, constipation, , suppression of urges to urinate or pass stool, poor posture, muscle tension, mental conditions such as nervousness, worry, anxiety, anger, and high blood pressure.   Migraines  can be caused by heartburn, congenital factors and other conditions. The climate can further aggravate migraines.

In Ayurveda headache can be approached from three basic principle of Ayurveda; Tridosha – Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Symptoms:

Vata: Anxiety, depression, dry skin, constipation, and extreme pain.

Pitta: Red complexion and eyes, light sensitivity, burning sensation, anger, irritability, and nose bleeds. Liver and blood toxicity are often associated with these symptoms.

Kapha: Dull headache, heaviness, fatigue, nausea, white or clear phlegm, vomiting, and excess salivation. Respiratory disorders are often associated with these symptoms.

 Therapies:

Vata: Triphala as a purgative, jatamashi , brahmí, and rest. Shiro dhaara (hot oil head massage) is very beneficial.

Pitta: Purgatives (e.g., aloe vera gel, rhubarb, and fennel), liver cleansers (e.g., bhuamalaki and brahmi), sandalwood oil on the third eye, temples, heart, and under the nose, walks in the full moon and by water; and flower gardening reduce Pitta causes of migraines. Overexertion, heat and sun should be avoided. Shiro dhara (hot oil head massage) is also highly beneficial.

Kapha: Trikatu, brahmí, tulsi tea, inhaling eucalyptus oil, vomiting, exercise, nasal snuff of ginger or pepper. Shiro dhara (hot oil head massage) is also very helpful.

Cough, Cold, Flu, Allergy-Caused: Decongestant/ expectorant herbs—Vata and Kapha excesses (ginger, black pepper, licorice, vidanga,  etc.) are ingested or used as nasal snuff. Tulsí tea and inhaling eucalyptus oil are also very helpful. Ginger paste can be applied under the nose, and on the temples and forehead. Vomiting (if the person is strong) will help rid the head of congestion and pain arising from it.

Migraines (Ardhavabhedaka): Medicated oils or ghee, using guæúchí, balá, and ashwagandhá; fomentation, and saturating snuff are also advised. Long-term healing includes Chyavan prash, brahmí, and ashwagandha. Shiro dhara (hot oil head massage) is also beneficial. This is usually a Vata and Pitta excess, caused by lack of sleep, overwork, stress, worry, poor digestion, muscular tension, heartburn, or high blood pressure.

Gallstones | Types of gallstone | Treatment of gallstone in Ayurveda

The abnormal accumulation of bile acids, cholesterol and phospholipids in the bile can cause the formation of gallstones. The presence of gallstones is marked as  cholelithiasis. The data gives that one in ten people have the problem gallstones without knowing it.The symptoms often arise after the individual has eaten fried or fatty foods. In Ayurveda the gall stone are classified as the Vata type, or Pitta type or Kapha type.
Causes: Congestion obstructs the bile flow and inflames the gallbladder wall.

Symptoms:
General: Symptoms include acute pain in the liver and gallbladder, swelling, and tenderness.

Vata: Stones are black or brown, dry or rough; they cause severe pain but mild inflammation and fever.

Pitta: Stones are yellow, red, or green with sharp angles, painful and inflamed.

Kapha: Soft, round, whitish stones, rarely painful.

Therapies:

Purgation with aloe or rhubarb (mixed with fennel) is required in acute conditions. Bhuamalaki, turmeric, and manjishoha are next used to cleanse the liver and blood.

Certain herbs break up stones. These include gokshura, kaoukaa, and pashana bedha. Taken with coriander or turmeric, the herb’s actions are directed to the gall bladder.

 

Different types of fistula in ano and fistular ulcers according to Ayurveda | Bhagandar (fistula in ano and fistula ulcers) Types

Ayurveda now a days is getting popularity with the term Kshar- Sutra.  This is found a great procedure to cure problems like Piles.
So related to this, Bhagandar (fistula in ano and fistula ulcers) types are discussed here.

The deranged Vata, Pitta, Kapha and Sannipatah (a simultaneous derangement of the three bodily Doshas) and extraneous causes (such as a blow etc.) give rise to the types of Bhagandar known as Sataponaka, Ushtragriva, Parisravi, Samvukavarta and Unmargi. The disease is so named from the fact that it bursts the rectum, the perineum, the bladder and the place adjoning to them (thus setting up a mutual communica­tion between them). The pustules, which appear in these regions, are called as Pidakas in their unsupported stage, while they are called Bhagandar when they are in a stage of suppuration. A pain about the sacral bone and an itching about the anus, accompanied by a swelling and burning sensation, are the premonitory symptoms of this disease.

The Sataponakah Type:—The Vayu, excited, condensed, and rendered motionless by a course of unwholesome food, gives rise to a pustule within one or two fingers’ length from the rectum (anal region, —Guda), by vitiating the flesh (areolar tissue) and b’.ood (of the locality). It assumes a vermilion colour and is characterised by a variety of pricking, piercing pain. If neglected at the outset, the pustule runs into suppuration. Owing to its vicinity to the bladder, the abscess or the suppurated pustule exudes a kind of slimy secretion and becomes covered with hundreds of small sieve-like holes, through which a constant frothy discharge is secreted in large quantities. The ulcer, thus formed, seems as if it is being thrashed with a rod, pierced with a sharp instrument, cut with a knife, and pricked by needles. The region of the anus cracks and bursts, and jets of urine, fecal matter, flatus (Vata) and semen arc emitted through these sieve-like holes. This type of fistula is called Sataponakah (Sieve-like fistula in ano).

The Ushtra-grivah Type:—The enraged Pitta,carried down by the Vayu (into the rectum) finds lodgmcit therein, and there gives rise to a small, raised, red pustule, which resembles the neck of a camel in shape, and is characterised by a varied kind of pain, such as sucking etc. The pustule,not medicinally treated at the beginning, runs into suppuration. The incidental ulcer seems as if it is being burnt with fire or alkali, and emits a hot, fetid discharge. Jets of urine, flatus (Vata), fecal matter and semen flow out of the ulcer in the event of it not being healed up with proper medicinal remedies.This type is called Ushtragrivah.

The Parisravi Type:—The enraged Kapha, carried down by the Vayu (into the rectum) and lodged therein, gives rise to a white, hard, itching pustule in that locality, characterized by a variety of itching pains, etc. If neglected at the outset, it soon runs into suppura­tion. The incidental ulcer becomes hard and swollen, marked by excessive itching and a constant secretion of slimy fluid. Jets of urine, fecal matter, flatus and semen are emitted through the ulcer in the event of it not being well cared for at the outset. This type is called Parisravi.

The Samvukavartah Type :— The en­raged Vayu, in conjunction with the aggravated Pitta and Kapha, is carried down, and finds lodgment (in the region of the rectum), giving rise to a pustule of the size of the first toe, and characterized by a piercing pain, and burning, itching sensations etc. Such a pustule, neglected at the outset, speedily suppurates, and the incidental ulcer exudes secretions of diverse colours, characterized by a kind of whirling pain, which revolves about, in the direction of the involuted indentures (within the grooves of the rectum) such as are found within the body of a river or fresh water mollusc. This is called Samvukavartah.

The Unmargi Type :—Particles of bones, eaten with (cooked) meat by an imprudent, greedy, glut­tonous person, may be carried down with the hard and constipated stool by the Apana Vayu (into the rectum), thus scratching or abrading the margin of the anus, or burrowing into the rectum in the event of their being evacuated in improper directions through (transverse or horizontal postures). The scratch or abrasion is soon transformed into a fetid and putrid ulcer, infested with worms and parasites, as a plot of miiy ground will soon swarm with a spontaneous germination of similar parasites. These worms and parasites eat away the sides of, or largely burrow into, the region of the anus, and jets of urine, fecal matter, and flatus (Vayu) are found to gush out of these holes. This type of Bhagandar is called Unmargi.

Authoritative verses on the sub­ject:—A pustule, appearing about the region of the anus and characterised by a slight pain and swelling, and spontaneously subsiding, should be regarded as a simple pustule, which is of a quite different nature from a fistula in ano, which has contrary features {i.e., invariably found to be attended with a violent pain and swelling etc., and takes a long time to heal). A Fistula-pustule crops up within a space of two fingers’ width of the Payu proper (distal end of the rectum), is sunk at its root, and attended with pain and febrile symptoms. Pain, itching and burning sensations are experienced about the anus after a ride in a carriage, or after defecation. The anus becomes swollen, and the waist painful in the premonitory stages of Bhagandar.

Prognosis:- Almost all the types of this disease (Fistula in ano) yield to medicine after a prolonged course of treatment, and arc hard to cure, except the Sannipatah and traumatic ones, which are incurable. The best treatment method would be Kshar-sutra treatment (esp. for piles).

 

Oil Application (Abhyanga) | Self massage| Anti Vata massage

Abhyanga (pouring oil on the body) is one of the Panchakarma. Other aspects of  Pancha karma include shiro dhara (hot oil poured on the head), meridian cleansing, and marma balancing (applying oil on sensitive points). Here among five other karma only Abhyanga is described.

More than 2,000 years ago in India, oils were found that not only healed illness, but also prevented future imbalances. These therapies were traditionally given (to oneself or to others) on a daily basis. Oil was poured onto the entire body (also called Abhyanga), head (shiro bhyanga and shiro dhara), ears (karna purana), feet (pada bhyanga), or specific sites that required attention (marma bhyanga).

Abhyanga for Lymphatic System:  One important benefit from Abhyanga is the stimulation of the lymphatic system. The lymph system is pervasive throughout the body, except in the brain, bone marrow, and deep skeletal muscle (though some scientists believe they may extend there as well). The role of this system is to carry nutrients to and remove toxins from the cells. Some cells in the nodes destroy bacteria, viruses, and other potential harmful particles. Other vessels send fresh fluids from the other side of the node to the heart.

Lymph contains about half the concentration of proteins in the plasma, and returns the serum proteins to the blood. Thus, this is a sort of self-feeding, system that means the body prepares its own food and feeds itself. Additionally, it contains many white blood cells that help maintain the body’s resistance to immune disorders, forming these infection-fighting cells in the nodes.

This system contains various amino acids. One amino acid called tryptophan is needed for producing energy and balancing the hormonal and nervous systems. Melatonin a brain hormone synthesized from tryptophan within the pineal gland, is believed to be related to the thyroid, adrenals, and gonads. It has been found to help calm excess mental activity. Dopamine beta hydroxylase, is an enzyme believed to be related to schizophrenia and other mental disorders. Histaminase, another enzyme, breaks down histamine. If histamine is in excess, it may cause gastric acidity, lethargy, itching, headaches, pain in muscles and nodes; and allergies. Thus, Abhyanga may help the body produce its own natural antihistamines. Lymphs also play a role in the various forms of edema.

The lymph system is Kapha in nature. Sleshaka Kapha is a mixture of lymph and synovial fluid found in the joints and also runs through the nervous system. Lymph provides the nerves with receiving and transmitting signals. It also helps develop antibodies that are important for the immune system.

By rubbing the joints in a circular motion, circulation is enhanced and rubbing the joints in a circular motion secretes fluid secreted from the lymph nodes. This causes more protein, glucose, minerals oxygen, and antibodies, involved with the lymphatic system, to circulate in the blood.

Benefits of Abhyanga:

The Astanga Hridayam, one of the triad of the classical Ayurvedic texts, suggests Abhyanga be given on a daily basis to prevent and heal illness. Many benefits arise from daily Abhyanga. Let us look at each benefit individually.

1. Reverses/prevents aging and increases longevity

2. Removes fatigue and stress from work and life overall

3. Heals and prevents nervous system disorders

4. Promotes good vision

5. Nourishes the body and promotes sturdiness

6. Remedies insomnia

7. Creates an electrochemical balance in the body.

8. Oil rubbed into the skin prevents dehydration and strengthens the nerves.

9. Oil helps the electromagnetic field of the body.

10. Stimulates antibody production, thusstrengthening the immune system.

Avyanga is found useful in Aging (Jara), Fatigue (shrama), Nervous disorders (Vayu Roga), Eye (Drishti), Nourishing (Pushti, Sturdiness (Dardhya), Sleep (Swapna)

Aging (Jaraa) is a natural process of the body, and surely death is one of life’s certainties. Nevertheless, the diseases caused in the aging process are removed through Abhyanga. Symptoms of aging include gray hair and wrinkles; loss of sleep, teeth, impairment of sight and hearing; weakened digestion and elimination; and brittle bones (osteoporosis, arthritis, weakened spine, calcification, stiffness, etc.). Other signs of aging include pains, giddiness, Parkinson’s disease, heart, artery, and blood pressure problems; decreased mental function (memory, concentration, etc.), and diseases of the various organs. Through daily Abhyanga life is maintained and people can live a normal life span (longevity or Aayush).

Method: Sesame, mustard, or almond oil, applied to the spine, head, and feet, remove effects of old age and increase longevity.

Fatigue (shrama) results from hard work, stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, not protecting oneself from the environment, etc. These habits weaken the muscles, nerves, and joints. Abhyanga provides a passive exercise, cleanses stress from the muscles, removes toxins from the organs, cells, tissues, and blood; and tones the muscles and nerves.

Method: Rubbing, patting, squeezing of muscles. Add sandalwood oil to the oil mixture. For fatigue caused by straining muscles add a pinch of salt to warm water and soak the limb. Adding a heating oil such as mint, eucalyptus, or mustard helps fatigue due to toxin accumulation.

Nervous disorders (Vayu Roga) occur due to excess air (Vayu), which is the element that regulates sensory-motor skills. It is also the most important element because it regulates the other two doshas (Pitta regulates the metabolism and enzyme and digestive functioning. Kapha regulates the body organs). So, balancing Vayu is necessary; daily Abhyanga achieves this balance.

Method: Mahanarayan oil removes air imbalances that aggravate the nervous system.

Eye (Drishti) sight is weakened by poor lighting, poor posture, reading print that is too small, excessive television, gazing at overly bright or flashing lights, (e.g., the sun, neon, and flashing signs), receiving excess sun, heat, or cold to the head; excess eating and drinking of pungent and oily foods. Additionally, old age causes impairments such as cataracts, near- and farsightedness, night blindness, optic nerve problems, etc. Poor or improper diet creates an inflamed or detached retina, atrophy of the optic nerve, etc. Ayurveda also believes that constipation causes various eye problems. Again, Abhyanga heals these impairments and corrects the visual problems associated with the aging process.

Method: Attending the spine, neck, head, and feet. Before bed a) massage the avel  clockwise using sesame or coconut oil. b) foot massage, including pressing between the big and index toes.

Other helpful measures for the eyes include staring at a candle flame (at eye level), massaging the temples, using a neti pot massaging the nostrils with ghee, ingesting triphala each morning, washing the eyes with ghee.

Nourishing (Pushti) the tissues (dhatus, i.e., plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bones, nerves/marrow, reproductive fluid), are affected by poor eating habits, digestion, and metabolic functioning. The result is that foods are not digested and properly eliminated. Undigested foods become toxic waste in the body (ama) and hamper the natural absorption of nutrients. Through Abhyanga wastes are loosened, flow to their sites of elimination, and are expelled as urine, feces, and sweat.

Method: Rubbing, pressing, kneading.

Sturdiness (Dardhya) Stress, trauma, shocks, and accidents diminish the body’s sturdiness. The inabil­ity to overcome these blows to the system results in many diseases and impairments. Abhyanga relieves these problems, allowing persons to recover and heal, and prevents further weakening of their system. For those who are physically incapacitated Abhyanga provides a passive form of exercise.

Method: Rubbing, pressing, kneading.

Sleep (Swapna) or rest is needed to recover from the mental, physical, and emotional activities of the day. Persons deprived of sleeping and dreaming de­velop physical and mental diseases. Some people sleep too much, some sleep too little. Sleeping pills, caffeine, etc. are artificial attempts to balance one’s unhealthy sleeping habits. Bad foods, overeating, drugs, overwork, worry, anger, lethargy, fear, etc. cre­ate these situations of insomnia and oversleeping. Abhyanga removes toxins, calms the nerves, brings the body and mind back into balance with nature, and helps the person naturally adjust to daily rhythms.

Method: Rubbing of oils to the feet and tense ar­eas before bed.

Abhyanga is really a great treatments procedure in Ayurveda especially in Panchakarma

Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic itchy, inflammatory skin disease that is extremely difficult to treat. Effective therapeutic agents are limited in number, and may have long-term toxic side effects. Frustrated by these realities, many patients stop seeking help from conventional physicians and turn to alternative medical approaches. These can include natural products, herbal products and over-the-counter (OTC) treatments. Herbs and medications share a common history, as most of our well-known medications were derived from plants

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic itchy, inflammatory skin disease that usually develops in early childhood and is commonly seen in individuals with a personal or family history of similar skin disease or asthma. Persistence of AD has been reported in 60% of adults who had the disease as children.

A system of medical practice making use of all measures that have proven to be of value in the treatment of disease is referred to as allopathic medicine. Occasionally, some of the recommended modalities are intended not to replace conventional medicine, but to complement it. Complementary or alternative medicine can be classified into herbal therapy (treatments using plant species), and non-herbal therapies, such as homeopathy, acupuncture, aromatherapy and more than 10 other modalities.

Herbs: The use of herbs is a time honored approach to strengthening the body and treating disease. Herbs, however, can trigger side effects and interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications. For these reasons, you should take herbs with care, under the supervision of a health care provider. When applying herbs to the skin it is important to make sure that you have no open wounds as serious infection can result.

  • Topical creams and salves containing one or more of the following herbs may help relieve itching and burning, and promote healing. The best evidence is for chamomile (Matricaria recutita). Chickweed (Stellaria media), marigold (Calendula officinalis), and licorice (Glycyrrhia glabra) may be helpful, although there is little scientific evidence to support this cliam. One study did find a licorice cream was more effective than placebo.
  • Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) cream can relieve itching. Liquid witch hazel can help with “weeping” or oozing dermatitis.
  • St. John’ s wort (Hypericum perforatum), used as a topical cream, has shown promise in one double blind study. People with eczema who used St. John’ s wort on one arm and a placebo cream on the other saw more improvement with the arm treated with St. John’ s wort.
  • Other herbs that have traditionally been applied to the skin to treat dermatitis include Sarsaparilla (Smilax sp.) and marshmallow (Althea officinalis).

Dermatitis associated with stress and anxiety may be helped by mind-body techniques, such as meditation, tai chi, yoga, and stress management.

Oversweating ,Hyperhidrosis in Ayurveda

Hyperhidrosis refers to a condition where the sympathetic nervous system is overactive and produces sweat in excess of that needed to keep a constant temperature. This condition may be either primary or secondary. While there is no known cause for the primary condition, the secondary condition is usually caused due to endocrine problems, hormonal treatment, psychiatric disorders, obesity and menopause. Excessive sweating can be socially embarrassing and may interfere in professional activities. It is aggravated by emotional stress and high temperatures.

The Ayurvedic treatment of hyperhidrosis is aimed at controlling the sweating, regulating the sympathetic nervous system, reducing stress and treating the known cause of the condition. Medicines like Arogya-Vardhini, Kachnaar-Guggulu, Panch-Tikta-Ghrut-Guggulu, Punarnavadi-Guggulu, Maha-Vat-Vidhwans-Ras, Vat-Gajankush-Ras and Ekang-Veer-Ras are used to treat the overactive sympathetic nervous system.

Medicines which act on the ‘Ras’ and ‘Meda’ dhatus (tissues) of the body are useful in this condition. These medicines include Kutaj (Holarrhina antidysentrica), Patol (Tricosanthe dioica), Kutki (Picrorrhiza kurroa), Chirayta (Swertia chirata), Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia), Rakta-Chandan (Pterocarpus santalinus) and Vishwa (Zinziber officinalis). Other medicines which can be used in this condition are: Saarivadi-Churna, Chandanasav, Usheerasav, Musta (Cyperus rotundus), Pittapapda (Fumaria vaillantii), Triphala (Three fruits) and Usheer (Vetiveria zizanioidis). Fine powders of Triphala, Chandan (Santalum album) and Usheer can also be used locally.

Stress can be treated using Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri), Mandukparni (Centella asiatica), Jatamansi (Nardostachys jatamansi), Shankhpushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis) and Sarpagandha (Rauwolfia serpentina). Endocrine disorders like hyperthyroidism can be treated using medicines like Arogya-Vardhini, Chandrakala-Ras, Praval-Bhasma and Saariva (Hemidesmus indicus). Obesity can be treated using medicines like Medohar-Guggulu, Triphala-Guggulu, Chandraprabha-Vati, Triphala and Trikatu (Three pungent herbs). The hot flushes of menopause can be treated using medicines like Brahmi-Vati, Saraswatarishta, Ashokarishta and Usheerasav.

Once the acute symptoms have been controlled, the recurrence of the condition can be prevented by using medicines like Kutaj-Parpati, Panchamrut-Parpati, Usheerasav, Saarivasav and Parpatadi-Qadha on a long term basis. Medicines need to be tailor-made for each individual in order to get the maximum therapeutic response.

Peptic Ulcer in Ayurveda

In Ayurveda peptic ulcer is known as “Parinam shool” which is a disorder caused by the Agni bhootha. It is also caused by Helicobacter pylori which is a Gram- Negative, micro aerophilic bacterium that can inhabit various areas of the stomach, particularly the antrum. These are very common in middle-aged men and women, who are ‘acidity’ patients for a long time. These ulcers are formed when a small area of the stomach or duodenal lining loses its natural resistance to the acids and other juices involved in digestion.

When this happens, the digestive juices and acids erode that weak point of lining and create a sore patch, which ultimately leads to ulcer formation.

Causes

  • Irregular, and bad eating habits.
  • Regular intake of aspirin or non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs.
  • Gutkha is more dangerous.
  • Excessive hot, spicy fried food. Heavy drinking and smoking.
  • Excessive tea, coffee, and pan chewing.

Signs & Symptoms

  • Some times the pain is felt after eating, but it can also be releived by eating.
  • Some sufferers may feel nauseous.
  • Burning pain or sensation in the upper abdomen or below the ribs.
  • The pain may come and go over long periods of time.

Ayurvedic Remedies

  1. Ayurveda offers a wide range of drugs for this condition. One of the safest drugs that can be used regularly is Avipattikara Churna available in powder form. It is digestive, anti-flatulent and antacid. Regular use promotes ulcer healing by arresting excessive secretions of irritating acid and juices in the digestive system and throws out the unwanted toxins from the GI Tract through Virechana i.e., purgation.
  2. There are other herbo-mineral and gold compounds like Swarna Sutha Sekhara Rasa etc., which are specifically indicated for this disorder. But they should be tried under the care of an Ayurvedic physician.
  3. Vomitab tablet (charak), 1 tablet thrice daily before meals for 3 months cures ulcers completely.
  4. Alsarex tablet (charak) in the dose of 1 to 21 tablets thrice daily is very good in curing acidity and peptic ulcer.
  5. Kamdudha Ras (with pearls) taken 125mg thrice daily is another useful remedy.
  6. Besides these, Leelavilas Ras, Chanderkala Ras, Amalpithantak Loh are other useful medicines.
  7. Daily intake of 10 to 20gms of pure ghee with rice or meal is rewarding.
  8. Banana fruit contains some ulcer healing properties. One to three bananas are to be taken along with a cup of milk. This provides a protective cover to the ulcer by neutralising the excessive acidity of gastric juices. However, the small yellow bananas are to be avoided and the larger greener ones preferred.
  9. Amlaki – Botanically known as Emblica Officinalis, Indian gooseberry is highly useful and the fresh juice extracted from the fruit along with some sugar, if consumed daily on empty stomach, works wonderfully in this condition.
  10. Certain plants which have astringent properties like Patol Patar, Brahmi, Aloe etc., are very useful in the treatment of peptic ulcer.
  11. The decoction of barley, pipal, parval along with honey, can be taken for ulcers and acidity twice daily in the dose of 25 to 50ml.
  12. The powder of Harar (2.5gm to 5gm) mixed with honey and gur has proved very effective for controlling peptic ulcer.
  13. Avoid aspirin-based medicines, as they may induce stomach bleeding.
  14. Stop alcohol, tea, coffee, smoking, pan and gutkha chewing.
  15. Take regular, timely and balanced meals containing high-fibre food.
  16. Above all one should be free from every day worries and tensions.
  17. Pure ghee is a good ulcer healer; one should take it with meals daily.

They say that, An HIV positive person has to undergo extreme physical trauma,during the later stages of infection.HIV doesn’t strike immediately,but lies dormant in the body for a considerably long time.During this period,it continuosly weakens the immune system.Once the immune system is weak,it strkes in the form of AIDS.NATURAL AID is the solution to all these problems.It improves the immune system helps fight off other infections and deal with the side effects of anti-viral medication.It releives the symptoms of AIDS within 15 days.

Dr.Parveen Jain who invented the medicine said that natural aid immunity enhancer, a one of the kind product helps controlling the HIV infection by offering a unique formula designed to boost the immune system. The recent testing by National AIDS research Institute Pune report show positive results in inactivating above 80 percent of virus stain from the infected blood samples.
