  • Medicalroots.Com – Batten Disease

    The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) are a group of neurodegenerative disorders. Batten disease is the term applied to the juvenile form of NCL, although some physicians use the term to describe all forms of NCLs. The NCLs are characterized by a buildup of pigments called lipofuscins in the body's cells.
    Batten disease is the most common of the NCLs. It affects both males and females and people of all ethnic backgrounds, although it appears to be more common in Finland, Sweden, other parts of northern Europe, and Newfoundland, Canada. Batten disease is estimated to occur in 2 to 4 of every 100,000 live births in the United States. Researchers have identified the CLN3 gene on chromosome 16 as being associated with Batten disease. The disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, meaning that it occurs only when a child inherits two copies of the defective gene, one from each parent.

    Symptoms
    Symptoms of Batten disease generally begin between ages 5 and 10 years. Initial symptoms are loss of vision or seizures . Over time, loss of muscle control ( ataxia), moderate wasting of brain tissue (cerebral atrophy ), progressive loss of sight, and dementia occur. http://www.medicalroots.com/

  • Medicalroots.com - Asthma Asthma is a disease of the human respiratory system in which the airways narrow, often in response to a trigger such as exposure to an allergen, cold air, excessive exercise or emotional stress. This narrowing causes symptoms such as wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and coughing. Causes Aggravated Kapha (water) accumulates in the airways, leading to their narrowing and obstruction. This causes an interruption in the flow of the air in the lungs, causing shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing. This happens because of increased intake of vata (air) and kapha aggravating foods, internal weakness of lung tissues, and various diseases affecting the lungs. Factors like living in a cold and damp atmosphere, having cold or stale food or drink, eating foods that are not easily digestible, and ama (mucus) formation that blocks the respiratory channels also causing difficulty in breathing. Symptoms • The onset of an Asthmatic attack may be sudden, with a sense of constriction in the chest, breathing becomes difficult, and wheezing occurs. However, between episodes, most patients feel fine. • Prime symptoms may include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, pain or tightness in the chest, flaring of the nostrils when breathing in, interrupted talking and agitation. These symptoms tend to be variable and may stop and start. They usually worsen at night. Ayurvedic View Ayurveda regards Asthma as a disorder caused by impaired digestion. A malfunctioning digestive process causes hypersensitivity to certain substances, such as dust and pollen that triggers the asthma attacks. Deposits of ama (mucus) in the lungs and respiratory tract create obstruction in breathing and cause wheezing or coughing. Ayurvedic treatment of asthma focuses on restoring digestion with herbal preparations and the right diet and lifestyle changes. The medicines primarily work on pacifying Kapha and cleansing toxins from the body. In addition, specific herbal combinations are also supplemented to boost the body’s immunity. Diet & Lifestyle Advice • Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc . should be consumed • Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay • Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount • The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. • Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided • White flour and white sugar products should be avoided • In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things • Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise. Yoga and Pranayama can be helpful. Some Home Remedies • Boil ½ teaspoon of freshly freshly-grated ginger in a glass of milk and add ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder to it. Have it twice a day. • Take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. • Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil (5 ml) with a pinch of salt added to it helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially when followed with steam inhalation. http://www.medicalroots.com/

  • Medicalroots.com - Allopathic Medicine Allopathic medicine is an expression commonly used by homeopaths and proponents of other forms of alternative medicine to refer to mainstream medical use of pharmacologically active agents or physical interventions to treat or suppress symptoms or pathophysiologic processes of diseases or conditions. The expression was coined in 1810 by the creator of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843). In such circles, the expression "allopathic medicine" is still used to refer to "the broad category of medical practice that is sometimes called Western medicine, biomedicine, evidence-based medicine, or modern medicine" (see the article on scientific medicine). http://www.medicalroots.com/

  3. 4. Allopathy Ayurveda Essentially a medical KNOWLEDGE SYSTEM. It’s more than just a medical knowledge system; the literal meaning of the word 'Ayurveda' is 'THE SCIENCE OF LIFE'. This is its essence – it is a science with philosophy Essential to study PURE SCIENCES like physics, chemistry and biology before one studies Allopathy. Essential to study vyAkaraNa (GRAMMAR) and tarka (LOGIC) to understand the Ayurveda concepts. Based on a REDUCTIONIST approach where the individual and the affected organ/body part is viewed in isolation, forgetting that it is a part of the whole. Based on the HOLISTIC principle that man- the microcosm, is an integral part of the universe-the macrocosm; and that the same elements in the universe are reflected in the individual. So it does not believe in a common pill for every ill.
  4. 5. It is completely focussed on PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH. It is fivefold in ensuring PHYSICAL health, MENTAL health, SPIRITUAL health, SOCIAL health as well as ENVIRONMENTAL health DIAGNOSIS is primarily by the use of sophisticated laboratory equipment and investigations, which considerably reduce the element of risk. DIAGNOSIS is primarily by using the five SENSE ORGANS and hence emphasis is placed on honing of the senses so that they are highly sensitive to even a very minute stimuli. On many occasions, it does not reach the root cause and primarily gives SYMPTOMATIC RELIEF. Treatment is primarily aimed at removing the ROOT CAUSE of the problem. Mostly QUICK-ACTING. SLOW-ACTING on most occasions, due to its working with the cause rather than the symptoms.
  5. 6. Being primarily chemical, there are SIDE EFFECTS attached to most of the drugs. Generally the medicines, being mostly herb and animal product based (and sometimes mineral based), are FREE FROM SIDE EFFECTS. Because Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing, it does not believe in a common pill for every ill. EMERGENCY and SURGICAL CARE in Allopathy are highly developed today and well-equipped to deal with such conditions.
