Insights by Dr. Dinesh Biswas BAMS, CCYP, BYP DNHE, PGDCSH, MSc (GOLD MEDALIST)

The basic principle of ayurvedic therapy in order to maintain healthy state is SAMDOSHA SAMAGNI SAMDHATU MALAKRIYA, PRASANATAMINDRIYE MANAH SWASTHYAITYABHIDHIYATE.

So as for as skin & hair is concerned skin is updhatu of mamsadhatu &hair is mala of asthidhatu. So, the concept of health state can be fulfilled by trichikitsa sutra of ayurveda i.e, AAHAR, VIHAR & AYUSHADH.

Ahar vihar differs in every ritu (6 season) for this we have to follow. Ritucharya.

AYURVEDIC THERAPY FOR SKIN:

UBATAN:-   According to doshwe can prepare 3 types of ubatan.

  1. VATAJ UBATAN: Chickpea flour, a pinch of turmeric powder, rose water yogurt or cold milk.
  2. PITTAJ UBATAN:-  Alovera with rose water.
  3. KAPHAJ UBATAN:–  Honey with a pinch of turmeric powder.

PANCHKARMA:- In this section of skin care we can do Virechan, Vaman, Nasya, & Raktmokshan. Which in turns purifies rakta & Mamsa dhatu.

HAIR CARE:

Two major challenge as for as hair disease is concerned include-

  *Hairfall  *Greying of fair

HAIRFALL & GREYING TREATMENT: 

  1. LEECH THERAPY:- The major 35 biochemicals present in the saliva of leech (Hirudinaria) let in blood stream while sucking in the affected area. Which in turn increases hair growth. 
  1. CUPPING OR HIJAMA:- It’s another method for increasing the growth of hair by creating a vacuum so that blood from the affected area can be removed. 
  1. SHIROBASTI:-  This procedure targets the master organ of our body i.e. brain. In Ayurveda the body is imagined as the inverted tree and it does not lie in the head, so when you give  the head nourishment the whole body benefits.
  2. NASYA:-  Pouring medicated oil in booth Nostrils delays the premature graying of hair & baldness.
