She was running 5k every morning when this happened to her

She had suffered a severe bout of migraine. A friend of her’s, who had just called her realised something was wrong and directed her call my office and schedule a consultation.

When she walked in, I saw a very fit and trim woman introduce herself. She was an avid golfer and a marathoner. She’d never had a migraine before and when it occurred, she didn’t know what was happening to her. Her vision went blur and she couldn’t hold herself together.

So, I seated her and performed her Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis). What I found didn’t surprise me, but I saw somethings happening in her body which made me enquire about her running.

She told me that she had recently developed pain in her knees. So, she visited an orthopaedic. The doctor told her that her knees were wearing out because she was running on uneven ground and that her problem aggravated with the thin sole shoes she was wearing on her runs. Her knees had begun to arrest her running. So, the doctor advised her to run on even ground and also wear thick soles shoes. She was uncomfortable with both of these suggestions. She didn’t know what to do.

I found this hard to believe. Let us infuse some hard truths into our brains. We’re a species called homo-erectus. This means, we’re a species that are meant to stand straight and running is one of the natural given abilities. And we have a pelvis (hip bone) which tilts and balances the body while the body is running through uneven ground. So, technically what the doctor said couldn’t be scientifically appropriate.

My diagnosis revealed that she was short tempered, had had challenges in her relationships. She was a go getter and very stubborn. Her sense of discipline and etiquette were high on priority. And she was angry because of her unfulfilled desires.

A verse in Ayurveda texts reads;

When a desire is left unfulfilled, feelings of unhappiness, apprehension and fear begin to manifest in the mind. These feelings cause anger and frustration which manifest as symptoms in the body.

So, I enquired about her past and she said that it all started when she was handling her second pregnancy. She didn’t have her husband’s support. He was traveling. She felt all alone. This made her feel very sad. She then wondered, what if she couldn’t resume her career soon enough. She began to demand time from her husband and this led them to quarrel frequently. Her anger and frustration increased. She got back to her career. She was successful. But her bosses gave her repetitive feedback that she was very aggressive. She couldn’t understand how. Now she had stiffness in her knee’s ligaments and tendons which created pain. Even her migraines happened for the same reason.

In my opinion, it had nothing to do with her running on uneven ground.

So, I suggested that she work on releasing her anger and also I performed Marma Chikitsa ( An superfast ayurvedic therapy to remedy aches and pains in the body and restore health) on her to improve her quality of sleep and restore her knees.

She took the therapies and treatments without delay. On day 3, she ran with her thin sole shoes and on uneven ground. Not only did she not have knee pain, she clocked the best time ever on a 5km run.

Never assume that your doctor knows it all. You must consult a Vaidya (knowledgeable healer) who knows how to find out what your body is going through and also suggests appropriate remedies. And such diagnosis is only available in Ayurveda.

Love you job or else this could happen to you

A few days ago there was a joke trending on the internet. It read, “There are people who give discourses where-in they encouraged their audience to stop chasing money. The irony is that the so called saints themselves charged ₹2 Lakhs for their discourse.” They probably wanted to cut competition.

Chasing money brings with it its symptoms and sometimes these symptoms can get worrisome. I had one person come for a consultation recently.

A man of 24 years came to me for a consultation citing he had sharp shooting pains in his elbow and shoulders. He had consulted elsewhere before coming here and he was diagnosed as having a tennis elbow and frozen shoulder.

I performed his Nadi Pariksha and I shared my diagnosis with him. During the diagnosis, I asked him a few questions. The answers revealed to me why he had his symptoms.

I asked him whether he liked his job! His answer was, No! And he said it without a hesitation. Then I asked him; Why are you working then? To which he replied; for money. Then, I asked him; Do you like waking up to go to work? And his answer was a ‘No’ again.

After my conversation with him, I still had to prove that his pains were because of his dispassion towards his job. So, I performed Marma Chikitsa on him and his pains vanishes almost immediately. I left him to realise how his everyday dislike to what he was doing created his symptom.

The answer to his problem is not to quit his job, but to find a reason to continue to work. Life is always giving and the best is just around the corner. But, how do I get that elusive best moments of my life?

VitaminD and Calcium supplements have no effect on your body

Supplements containing calcium, vitamin D or both may not protect older adults against hip fracture and other bone breaks, a study claims.

Practice guidelines recommend calcium and vitamin D supplements for older people to prevent fractures in those with osteoporosis, according to the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Previous studies have come to mixed conclusions about an association between supplements and fracture risk, researchers said.

The study conducted by researchers at the Tianjin Hospital in China included 51,145 adults over the age of 50 who lived in their communities and not institutions, such as nursing homes and residential care facilities.

The adults participated in 33 randomised clinical trials comparing supplement use (calcium, vitamin D or both) with placebo or no treatment and new fractures.

The study found that supplements were not associated with less risk for new fractures, regardless of the dose, the sex of the patient, their fracture history, calcium intake in their diet or baseline vitamin D blood concentrations.

“These findings do not support the routine use of supplements containing calcium, vitamin D, or both by older community-dwelling adults for prevention of fracture,” the researchers said.
