Natural Allergy Relief With Ayurveda Treatments

Date :02-May-2019

What exactly are allergies? Why some are extremely allergic, some are allergic only at some points in their lives and others are non-allergic? Why it is that one person can cheerfully play with their dogs/cats for hours, while others can’t get even near to a pet without developing a fit of sneezing and coughing or itchy eyes? You'd love to smell the roses, but every time you do, your allergies kick in. And every spring, your stack of used tissues grows faster than the flowers out your window and reducing you to a sniffling, sneezing, congested mess. If this sounds familiar, perhaps it's time to deal with your allergies using an Ayurvedic approach.

Ayurvedic perspective of allergic disorder:

Ayurvedic theory maintains that an allergy is the result of a particular substance (the allergen) aggravating a specific dosha (vata,pitta, or kapha) in susceptible people, they are not the primary cause of allergies. On the contrary, it's the accumulation of AMA (Sanskrit for “uncooked,” “raw,” or “undigested.") that's the main problem. AMA is essentially an unmetabolized waste - a sticky, cloudy, smelly residue that comes from poor dietary practices coupled with inadequate digestion.

Ayurveda, therefore categorize allergies according to dosha, depending on which one is triggered in each individual case. It’s possible for more than one dosha to be involved.

Vata type: Vata types of allergies are often experienced in the digestive tract with symptoms such as bloating, burping, digestive discomfort, vague abdominal pain, intestinal colic gas and gurgling intestines. They can also include symptoms of constriction such as headache or wheezing, as well as sneezing, joint pain, ringing in the ears, sciatica, spasms or muscle twitching, nightmares, insomnia and other vata-type discomforts.

Foods to avoid: Foods with a cooling essence, like cold and frozen foods or carbonated drinks, deep fried foods, raw foods, certain animal proteins (like pork), legumes (such as beans and lentils), bitter greens, certain astringent taste fruits (including pears, pomegranates and dried fruits), vegetables (such as, cauliflower, turnip, artichoke and asparagus)

  1. When vata is aggravated, it is important to keep calm, keep warm, stay hydrated, and eat a vata-pacifying diet.
  2. Vata types of allergies are often pacified by ginger or licorice teas with an added drop of ghee to neutralize vata’s dry quality.
  3. As the seat of vata is in the colon, Dashamula enema is one very effective therapy for balancing vata-type allergies. Many ghritam/ oil based ayurvedic medicines are also beneficial in vata type allergies
  4. Ayurvedic herbs for a vata constitution include Vidarikand (Pueraria tuberosa) Vidarikand fruit, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) Ashwagandha ground powder and root, Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) Shatavari root, Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) Guduchi leaf and stem etc.

Pitta type: Pitta type of allergies usually occurs when the sharp, hot qualities of an allergen comes in contact with the skin and then later enter the bloodstream. Pitta-type allergies are often skin-based reactions such as rashes, hives, allergic dermatitis, itching, eczema, and may also involve bloodshot eyes. In the GI tract, pitta allergies can cause acid indigestion, stomach upset, heartburn, nausea or vomiting. Pitta-type allergies can also induce sweating and hot flashes.

Foods to avoid: Sour fruits, citrus fruits, tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, hot, spicy dishes and fermented foods. Avoid consuming excess caffeine (coffee), black tea, alcohol and other stimulants

  1. When allergy due to Pitta is high, it is best to keep cool, avoiding exercise at midday, and to have a pitta-pacifying diet.
  2. Pitta has such an affinity for the blood so purifying the conjested blood is often tremendously helpful.
  3. Just donating blood can be similar to traditional bloodletting and can pacify pitta in the same way.
  4. Herbal formulas that particularly support blood purification can also be very effective; For instance, a mixture of Manjistha and Neem.
  5. Ayurvedic herbs for a pitta constitution include - Bhringraj (Eclipta prostrata) Bhringraj leaves and flower, Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) Guduchi leaf and stem, Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) Shatavari root, Mint (Mentha) Mint leaves etc Other herbs that are suitable for Pitta dosha type would include cardamom, coriander, cilantro, cumin, fennel and turmeric, among others.

Kapha type allergies are the most likely to be exacerbated during the season shift periods, spring, cold seasons and external allergens like pollen-based allergens. Kapha allergy symptoms include irritation of the mucus membranes, cold, congestion, cough, sinus infection, hay fever, water retention, asthma, bronchial congestion and even sleeping disorders. In the digestive tract, kapha types of allergies can create sluggish digestion and certain heaviness in the stomach.

Foods to avoid: Dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt, root vegetables, Sweet, Sour, Salty / Heavy, Cold foods.

  1. When trying to balance kapha, it is best to keep warm and dry, to avoid daytime napping, to stay active, and to eat a kapha-pacifying diet.
  2. Drinking lightening and clarifying teas such as ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, or clove can also help to liquefy, dry, and eliminate excess kapha.
  3. Unadulterated, pure honey used as a sweetener serves to cleanse the system of excess kapha and can also help to reduce sensitivity to local pollens.
  4. Try to have more pungent, bitter, astringent tastes and light, dry and warm foods.
