End Your Lifestyle Disorder Struggles with Ayurveda

Lifestyle Disorders like obesity, diabetes, and hypertension are rising rapidly worldwide. Conventional medicine relies heavily on medications to lower blood sugar, pressure, and cholesterol. But these drugs have side effects and cannot substitute for healthy lifestyles.

At Dr. P. Alikuttys Ayurveda & Modern Hospital Kottakkal (home page), we offer a holistic Ayurvedic approach to lifestyle diseases. Here's an overview:

Major Lifestyle Disorders we Specialize in

  • Obesity (Sthoulya) - Excess accumulation of unhealthy fat tissues resulting in overweight or obesity. Can lead to joint pains, fatigue, and other disorders.

  • Diabetes (Madhumeha) - Chronic condition where the body cannot regulate blood sugar levels properly. Caused by lifestyle factors as well as genetic predisposition.

  • Hypertension (Rakthacchapa) : is a condition where the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high. It can lead to serious health complications if left untreated.

  • Hypercholesterolemia: Refers to high levels of cholesterol in the blood. Can be inherited or caused by diet, obesity, or inactivity. Leads to a buildup of plaque in arteries raising risk of heart attack and stroke. Managing cholesterol levels through lifestyle and medication can lower these risks.

  • PCOS/PCOD: Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Characterized by infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess androgen levels, ovarian cysts, and sometimes infertility. Can also lead to problems like obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, and heart disease.

Causes from an Ayurvedic Viewpoint

In Ayurveda, lifestyle disorders arise predominantly from aggravated Kapha and Meda Dhatu (fat tissue). This leads to poor metabolism, fluid retention, weight gain and conditions like diabetes and hypertension.

  • Diet and Nutrition:Excessive consumption of foods such as sugary, fatty, and processed foods, can lead to obesity and diabetes. contributing to weight gain and also leads to impaired metabolism and insulin resistance.

  • Sedentary Lifestyle: Lack of physical activity is a major contributor to obesity and diabetes. Prolonged sitting and a lack of exercise lead to sluggishness in the body's systems, hindering the efficient utilization of energy and nutrients.

  • Stress: Chronic stress is considered a potent trigger for lifestyle disorders. leading to hormonal imbalances and increased cortisol production. This, in turn, can result in emotional eating, weight gain, and insulin irregularities.

  • Genetics: Ayurveda acknowledges the role of genetics in predisposing individuals susceptible to increase the risk of obesity and diabetes.
