ayurvedic medicines

Endometriosis is the condition in which the uterus tissue lining grows outside of uterus. It is one of the major reasons for female infertility.

Flax seeds or Alasi

flax seeds

 

For treating the issue of Endometriosis, you have to consume 4 tbsp of flax seeds, which were soaked overnight in about a cup of water. Next morning, just strain and drink the water on empty stomach. Do so for at least 10 days to see visible results.

Daruharidra or Berberis aristrata

berberis aristata

 

For this remedy, you have to consume the decoction of Daruharidra on an empty stomach for at least 3 menstrual cycles. Capsules of the same are available in the market too, but if you can get the fresh herb, then nothing like it. Doing so helps the uterus to gain strength for controlling bleeding, receives pain and also controls the abnormality in the cells. You can combine the same with some Lodhra [Symplocos racemosa] and Arjun [Terminalia arjuna].

Shavatri or Asparagus racemosus

shavatri

 

5 grams of Shavatri along with 5 grams of Vidarikanda - commonly known as Pueraria tuberosa and 3 grams of Arjun is suggested for this remedy. Boil all the herbs in about 50ml of cow’s milk along with 150ml of water till thickens up. Filter the same and drink every day till you experience relief.

Sarivadyasava

sarivadyasava

 

This is a very common ayurvedic medicine that is known to prevent and control bleeding. You will find it very easily in most ayruvedic stores. Just have 1 spoon on an empty stomach or with water.

Ashok Trees Bark

ashok tree bark

 

Buy the bark of Ashoka tree and then crush the same using a mortar and pestle or even in the mixer. Mix 2 spoons of the same in 1 glass of water and heat till it reduces to half. Drink the same twice a day to get respite from the bleeding and pain.

Chandraprabha vati

You can either have 2 tablets of 250mg each of this ayurvedic medicine twice a day or mix 2 spoons of the powdered form with pomegranate juice/ cow’s milk and drink it for cleansing the reproductive organs.

Ashwagandhaaristha

This is basically a medicated sort of wine that helps the uterus to get strengthen the organ. Mix 5ml of this along with 10 ml of water and drink it twice a day. It will take about 3-4 months to show results but in the long run, it eliminates the problem of Endometriosis completely.

Triphala Churna

Triphala Churna is easily available in ayurvedic stores and is known as a mild laxative. Just mix this with a bit of water or any juice of your choice and drink daily. 1 spoon a day is known to cleanse the intestine and detoxifies the body, while clearing up the build up of these excessive cell growth.

Taking time to stretch and centre yourself as a mother is important to try to fit into your hectic schedule. Yoga has been proven to improve both physical and mental health, which, as we all know are so important in this stressful time of life! Are you struggling to try to find time to fit your practice into your routine? Here are a few poses that can be done in hardly any time, anywhere and they offer some amazing benefits:

1. FORWARD FOLD

Inversions, such as forward folds, are thought to provide the following benefits:

  • Improved circulation
  • Increased immunity
  • Increased energy
  • Increased relaxation
  • Better balance

Forward folds also strengthen and stretch the muscles in the legs, hips, and spine. To protect the lower back, keep your knees slightly bent when doing the pose. It can feel nice to fold halfway over while holding onto a countertop, the back of the couch, or your stroller or grocery cart handles. Focus on keeping the spine straight, rather than rolling your shoulders forward into a “hunch” while bending. To do this, think about pushing your chest towards your thighs if folding fully, or towards the floor, if folding halfway.

2. TREE

Balancing postures, such as tree pose, are great for increasing focus and helping us connect to our breath. If you are feeling off-kilter, use tree pose to centre yourself and drop back into your body.

Yogi Elizabeth Wellington recommends the following approach to tree pose:

"Start with your feet hip-width apart. Take a few deep breaths, and lift your left foot. Rest the bottom of your left foot along your shin, and if you’re comfortable, bring it up to rest on your thigh. Breathe with your eyes fixed on a focal point ahead of you. Switch sides to reap the benefits of this balancing pose."

3. CAT COW

Cat-Cow can be performed on the floor, on all fours, or seated in a chair or on a stability ball. It is a simple sequence where you round your back and press the space between your shoulder blades up if you’re on all fours, or into the back of the chair if you’re seated. Exhale as you round, like a cat. Then, inhaling through the nose, raise your forehead and arch your back, like a cow. Keep your core engaged by tucking your tailbone forward a tiny bit. Flowing with your breath, repeat the sequence several times.

This is a great pose to relieve feelings of anxiety or fear. It is easily performed in a variety of settings, from your desk chair, to the bathroom stall, on your bed, or the floor of your living room. If you are practising yoga in the midst of children, this is a really fun way to engage your kids in the practice. Invite them to moo like a cow and meow like a cat as you move through the sequence!

4. STANDING FIGURE FOUR

This is an easy stretch to perform just about anywhere. I’ve been known to drop into a standing figure four stretch while waiting in checkout lines while standing and talking to a friend at the park while cooking, and just about everywhere else.

To get into this pose, sit back as though you’re dropping into a chair, with knees bent and core strength. Shift your weight into the heels. Then, lift one foot and cross it over the opposite leg, so your ankle is sitting on your thigh. You may have to come up out of your “chair” slightly or depending on your flexibility, you might be able to sit deeper into your chair once you've balanced in your figure four stance.

This posture stretches the legs, hips, calves, and piriformis muscles. Keep your core strong and engaged to avoid angering your lower back muscles. Avoid placing the ankle directly on the knee. If you’ve got a history of knee problems, it might feel better to practice this pose lying down on your back.

5. TOE SQUAT

This simple pose comes from the Yin Yoga practice and helps to open the body’s lower meridians. The six meridians that begin and end in the lower body are the Liver, Gall Bladder, Kidney, Urinary Bladder, Spleen, and Stomach. By simply kneeling, tucking your toes under, and sitting back towards your heels, you can gently release these lower meridians through a toe squat.

Those new to the toe squat may find that sitting back is too uncomfortable at first. Only go back as far as you can without experiencing discomfort, and lean forward resting your hands on a block if need be. It is handy to have something to distract you while in toe squat, because focusing intently on the sensation can intensify discomfort. It’s a great time to get down to your child’s level and engage with them!

Place a blanket under your feet, or perform this pose on a rug or soft surface to minimize pain. You can hold this pose up to two-three minutes, but feel free to take a break, roll your ankles, and drop back in. Enjoy the release of your feet and toes!
