Three Common Problems Ayurveda Can Tackle

Three Common Problems Ayurveda Can Tackle

Fever High Blood Pressure Indigestion
Chronic fevers, high blood pressure and acid reflux are common problems that people all around the world often face. Ayurveda has several ways to help with these issues.

Chronic Fever

A fever (pyrexia) could be considered any body temperature above the normal temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (98.6 F or 37 C). Medically, a person is not considered to have a significant fever until the temperature is above 100.4 F (38.0 C).

Most fevers are beneficial, causes no long-term problems, and helps the body fight off infections. The main reason to lower a fever is to increase comfort.

Fevers are the result of an immune response by your body to a foreign invader. Foreign invaders include viruses, bacteria, fungi, drugs, and other toxins.

 High blood pressure

High blood pressure, also known as high blood pressure, is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. High blood pressure typically does not cause symptoms. Long-term high blood pressure, however, is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease, vision loss, chronic kidney disease and dementia.

Acid Reflux

The food we eat goes into our stomach through the esophagus. The gastric glands in your stomach create acid, which is necessary to digest the food. When the gastric glands create more acid than needed for the digestion process, you tend to feel a burning sensation below the breastbone. This condition is commonly called acidity as well as acid reflux.

Acid reflux is a condition that is characterized by heartburn that is felt around the lower chest area. It is a common condition that occurs when stomach acid flows back up into the food pipe. The most common acid reflux symptom is a burning sensation in the chest, and pain. While most people suffer in pain, they do not realize that poor lifestyle choices are the main reason behind acidity. If not treated properly it may damage the esophagus, increase the risk of esophagus cancer and wear down the enamel of your teeth and lead to cavities.

  • Parushakadi Leham - is useful in acidity control and acid peptic disorders.
