Herbs and Natural foods – For Summer rashes

One of the simplest ways to enjoy the summer is to feel the warm rays of the sun in the same way we feel in winter. It is very important nowadays to adopt sun-safety methods and protect the skin from the damaging UV rays which come when we are more exposed to the sun during the warm months.

A skin rash is characterized by red and itchy skin, with small bumps or changes in color, appearance or texture. This may occur in any part of the body and can be distributed on large portions of skin. This is caused by allergies, insect bites, mites, acne, excessive sweating, or contact with poisonous plants. Also certain soaps, shampoos and cosmetics which do not suit the skin lead to rash.

There are many herbal products and natural foods that work effectively and are natural cures for skin rashes such as :

1. Calendula flower- It includes volatile oil, carotenoids, flavonoids, aromatic plant acids etc. The hydrolate or watery distillate of calendula can be sprayed directly on the skin and will help treat skin irritations and rashes.

2. Chamomile- It is an antioxidant and includes flavonoids and volatile oils. Chamomile is calming and soothing. It is used to calm red, dry, and irritated skin. 

3. Coconut and tea tree oil- It is antifungal and can be combined with coconut oil and applied after a shower. It provides immediate relief from itching and rash if applied continuously for some time.

4. Fruits peels– Watermelon purée can be applied to the skin as it cools and moisturizes the skin and helps to treat skin rash.

5.Aloe vera gel- It has a natural cooling effect and is a good remedy for sunburn rashes. By rubbing Aloe vera gel directly on a skin rash it will calm and soothe the rash.

6.Vitamin E- Vitamin E capsule can be broken and applied directly on the skin. It will nourish and soothe the skin rash.

Natural foods for treating skin rashes

1.Orange and yellow fruits and vegetables– These provide carotenoids like beta-carotene, which helps to improve resistance to rashes triggered by the sun.

2.Lean protein- Sufficient amount of proteins in the diet helps the immune system guard against infections that cause rashes.

3.Vitamin C-Rich Foods- An increased intake of vitamin C-rich foods (Oranges, spinach, green and red peppers) help promote the healing of your skin rash.

4.Honey– Eating a spoon of raw honey helps prevent inflammation from skin rash.

6. Olive oil– It helps to fight inflammation and free radicals and helps prevent skin rash.

Natural products from plant sources are gaining popularity these days because they have no side-effects, are better tolerated,inexpensive and also acceptable because they have been used for a long time. So instead of going for medicines a person should focus on using natural remedies for treating skin rashes.

5 Hacks to control Hair Fall

Hair fall is the most common condition found in both women and men . People start doing the remedies without even knowing the cause of Hair fall . It is very crucial to find out the cause and the reason why the person is losing hair . Once you identify the exact cause then you can easily manage hair fall issues . Providing nourishment and avoiding food damaging hair is the sample way to manage hair fall issues .

Let’s check out the most common causes of hair fall and how to manage them .

1. Protein deficiency – Most of the time people are not aware of this fact and they keep applying various kinds of oil and serums to control hair fall . Our hairs are made up of protein and once we don’t consume enough protein in our diet  it leads to hair fall . Vegetarians are generally not able to consume enough of protein in their diet as they are not aware of protein sources .

Solution :  Include proteins such as pulses, paneer , milk , soybean, Almond milk, Soy milk , egg , fish and chicken in your diet .Daily requirement of protein is 1gm/kg/day .

2. Lack of Sleep – Sleep if the time when your body rejuvenates and the process of repair is faster at this time . Lack of sleep slows down the process of healing which leads to hair fall and many other health issues . Even if you are on a nutritious diet, but you don’t give rest to your body then it definitely causes hair fall. Make sure to have at least 7-8 hours of sleep everyday.

Solution : Take 1 cup of warm milk at night , also make sure you take your dinner by 7:00 pm . Put 1 drop of cow’s ghee in both the nostrils , you can also do a light foot massage just before sleeping . Avoid using gadgets late at night and make sure you must turn off all the lights in the room for better quality sleep.

3. Anemia (Low Hemoglobin) : It is very important to check your Hb level, most of the time along with hair fall people also start feeling low in energy. Specially in females low Hb is also one of the common causes of hair fall. Sometimes we don’t check internal health parameters and miss the exact cause of hair fall. 

Solution : Include Vit C rich food in your diet like amla, oranges . lemon water and berries . Iron is also one of the important nutrients to manage Hb , so include Iron rich food like Spinach and other dark leafy greens , beetroot , dates and  nuts . You can also consume antioxidant rich vegetable juice .

4. Hormonal imbalance : In certain conditions like PCOS and Hypothyroidism , hair fall is a very common symptom . Instead of just popping vitamin pills, manage your hormonal disorders first and focus on eating more plant based food . The cause of hormonal imbalance is unknown but still it has been found in certain studies that excessive consumption of food rich in trans fats , chemical and junk food leads to hormonal imbalances .

Solution : It is advisable to consult an endocrinologist to manage your hormonal imbalance and along with that include food rich in Vitamin E in your diet .Include nuts and seeds in your diet and avoid consuming junk food .

5. Stress: Stress is also one of the most common causes of hair fall. There are many causes of stress which include personal, professional and health disorders. It is very important to manage your stress with correct nutrition and lifestyle changes. 

Solution: Do yoga, deep breathing and meditation every day at least for 15-20 min. Even if you are not able to do this every day, just start it and see the results.

Principles of Ayurveda : 

There are 2 main principles of Ayurveda 

The First Principal of Ayurveda is focussed on Preventive health care or how one can live a longer and healthy life .

The Second Principle of Ayurveda deals with the curative aspect, which means in case due an imbalance if any disease occurs then how to use various herbal preparations to manage the disease.

Before understanding HOW THIS SCIENCE WORKS , we must understand basic physiology of the human body . Each human body has a unique bio ( Doshas)  – energy – Vata (Air) , Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Water) .  As per Ayurveda science balance of Tridosha means health and imbalance of Tridosha means ill health. 

To understand how these bioenergies come into existence one must understand the concept of Five basic elements ( Panch Mahabhuta ) i.e, Air , Water, Fire, Earth and Space .

Each dosha consists of Panch-mahabhutas in different proportions .

Vata –   Air + Space 

Pitta –   Fire + Water 

Kapha –  Water + Earth 

Concept of Prakriti ( Body type) 

Prakrit means “Nature ” . Prakriti of a person is decided at the time of conception, whichever dosha is predominant at the time of conception ,decides the prakriti of an individual .

Prakriti remains the same throughout life and is responsible for physical and psychological traits of an individual . 

7 Types of Prakriti as per Tridosha :

  1. Vata Prakriti
  2. Pitta Prakriti
  3. Kapha Prakriti
  4. Vata-Pitta Prakriti
  5. Pitta – Kapha Prakriti 
  6. Kapha -Vata Prakriti
  7. Samdodhaj Prakriti ( Vata-Pitta-Kapha) 

Brief Description of Prakriti
