प्रश्न - मेरे पैर का घुटने के नीचे का हिस्सा ठंडा और सुन्न रहता है। इसका क्या कारण है? कृपया आयुर्वेदिक और घरेलू उपचार बताएँ।
उत्तर - इस समस्या के होने के कई कारण हो सकते हैं, मुख्य रूप से कई बार एक ही पोजिशन में पैर लटका कर लंबे समय तक बैठे रहने से भी ऐसा हो सकता है या ठंडे कमरे अथवा ठंडे स्थान में लंबे समय तक होने से भी ऐसा होना संभव है क्योंकि इससे पैर का रक्त प्रवाह सीमित हो सकता है।
यदि ऐसा सिर्फ एक बार ही हुआ है तो आपको ज्यादा चिंता करने की आवश्यकता नहीं है। लेकिन यदि ऐसा बार-बार हो रहा है तो आपको गंभीरता से इसका इलाज करवाने की जरूरत है।
यदि आपका पैर लंबे समय से ठंडा है, या ठंड के साथ दर्द, झुनझुनी या सूनापन या कमजोरी है तो उस स्थिति में, यह न्यूरोपैथी या पैरिफेरल आर्टरी डिसीज जैसी स्थिति का संकेत हो सकता है।
इसमें शरीर में ख़ून का संचार करने वाली रक्त वाहिकाएं (आर्टरीज) सुकड़ना आरंभ हो जाती हैं, इन आर्टरीज में फैट या कैल्शियम का जमा होना शुरू हो जाता है, जोकि ज्यादातर शारीरिक रूप से कम व्यायाम करने वाले लोगों, मोटापा से ग्रस्त, मेटाबोलिक रोगों से ग्रस्त लोगों या स्मोकिंग, अधिक शराब पीने, तंबाकू का सेवन करने वाले लोगों में सबसे अधिक होती है।
इस स्थिति से बचाव के लिए सबसे बेहतर तरीका है अपने खानपान और अनियमित दिनचर्या को सही करना, यदि वजन अधिक हो तो उसको कम करने का प्रयास करना चाहिए, शराब, सिगरेट, तंबाकू, मिर्च-मसालेदार, देर से पचने वाला भोजन जैसे मैदा से बने पदार्थ मोमोज, पराठें, राजमा, छोले-भटूरे, पूड़ी आदि गरिष्ठ भोजन का पूरी तरह से निषेध करना चाहिए, अपने हाथ-पैरों को गर्म रखें इसके लिए हीटिंग पैड आदि से सिकाई कर सकते हैं, मोटे मोजे पहन सकते हैं, गुनगुने पानी में सैंधा नमक डालकर पैरों की सिकाई करने से लाभ मिलता है।
आयुर्वेद में कुछ विशेष तरह की जड़ी बूटियों से बनी "पोटली" थैरपी से इस स्थिति में तेज़ी से लाभ मिलते हैं, इसके अलावा आयुर्वेद में "शिरावेध" प्रक्रिया से भी बेहद अच्छे लाभ इस बीमारी में मिलते हैं। (डॉ. अभिषेक गुप्ता, मुख्य चिकित्सा अधिकारी, निरोगस्ट्रीट)

Winters in India are not the same throughout the country. While the northern parts do have colder winters, the south is usually more tropical and does not see extreme temperature variations. Nowadays, this situation is changing; the extreme climate change that has been gripping the globe has not left the country untouched. On one hand, the winter has become colder, foggier, and more polluted in the northern parts whereas the south is experiencing drastic temperature variations with colder nights and comparatively warmer days. This unbalanced climate outside has led to many health problems in the population. A few such issues are frequent colds, coughs,s, and chest congestion that affect the respiratory system.
These are more common in small babies and school-going children as they have weaker immunity. The symptoms may include a blocked nose, running nose, cough with or without expulsion of sputum, sore throat, hoarseness of voice, wheezing, rhonchi sounds while breathing, chest congestion, and sometimes sinus headaches. The general relief mantra is keeping warm and taking hot potency medicines. Minor cases of cold and related respiratory problems can be effectively managed at home, but if the symptoms are severe consulting a doctor is always advisable.
Gargling repeatedly with hot water added with salt, turmeric, or Triphala Choorna is very beneficial in case of throat pain and hoarseness of voice.
In babies below six months of age, medication is not really advised but the medicines can be given through breast milk by medicating the mother who in most cases may also be suffering from the same symptoms.
A really effective herb that can help in improving immunity, digestion, and intelligence in babies and one that can be given even to newborns is Vacha (Vach)/ Sweet Flag (Acorus calamus). A very small quantity of this dried herb is rubbed on a rough surface and the paste can be given with a little amount of ghee.
Dry ginger is also a very effective herb in cases of cold and congestion. It can be used as an ingredient in masala tea, boiled with drinking water, or chewed in small quantities by both children and adults.
Another very important plant for cold, fever and chest congestion in both children and adults is the Parnayavani (Sanskrit)/ Panikoorka (Malayalam)/ Karpooravalli (Tamil)/ Doddapatre (Kannada)/ Pathar Choor (Hindi)/ Indian borage/Mexican mint. The leaves of this plant are slightly warmed and crushed to extract their juice. This juice can be given along with honey. The leaves can also be used in drinking water.
Tulasi is also a very handy solution for this set of symptoms. Water boiled with Tulasi reduces fever, cold, and congestion and improves immunity. Tulasi leaves can also be eaten directly after washing them.
Trikatu is a combination of three dry spices that is usually given in diseases that occur during the winter. It consists of dry ginger, dry black pepper, and dry long pepper powdered together. This polyherbal is used in many formulations in ayurveda and is the major component of Dashamoolakatutraya Kashaya that is specifically given in conditions of cough, cold, and chest congestion.
The most effective method of unblocking the nose and giving relief to the congested chest is exposure to steam. This process of steaming and induction of sweat is called sudation. Steaming can be done by exposing the chest and face to the vapours coming from hot water. For better liquefaction of the sputum herbs like Tulasi and Parnayavani can be added to the water.
Even though many effective treatments are available for respiratory issues during the winter, it is always better to prevent such symptoms. Here are a few precautionary measures that can keep you healthy during cold spells.
Always try to stay warm with a proper winter wardrobe.
Especially cover the ears during traveling and at night.
Do not drink cold water or eat anything refrigerated.
Drink hot water preferably boiled with beneficial herbs.
In places with high pollution and fog, it is essential to wear a mask for protection.
Do not take a shower in cold water and do not sleep with wet hair.
Children should be taught personal hygiene ethics so that they do not get infected by contact with sick kids at school. (Dr. Lakshmi Varma K is a [BAMS, MD(Ayu)] Consultant & Advisor at LYEF Wellness)

Fifatrol, an ayurvedic formulation composed of time-tested herbs, is effective in treatment of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI), a contagious viral and bacterial infection, according to a study published in the International Research Journal of Ayurveda and Yoga.
A team of researchers had carried out the study on 203 patients with URTI in various health centres across the country.
During the treatment, the health parameters of the patients, who were given Fifatrol twice a day, were checked on the first, fourth and seventh day.
As per the study, the patient's condition was found to be improved by 69.5 per cent and 90.36 per cent within the fourth and seventh days respectively.
"Effectiveness was evaluated by examining the reduction in symptoms scores at day four and seven respectively. This observational study has gathered evidence about the effectiveness and safety of Fifatrol on the amelioration of the symptoms of URTI," said the authors.
The researchers also did not find any adverse impact of the formulations on the patients.
Fifatrol has not only been found to be effective in treating URTI but also well accepted by the physicians of Ayurveda for the successful management of conditions like flu and associated symptoms like fever, nasal congestion, running nose, etc, it added.
In fact, Fifatrol as an immunity-boosting ayurvedic drug has found a mention as Covid-19 combating formulation in the 'Compendium of Indian Technologies for Combating COVID-19 (Tracing, Testing &Treating)', compiled by the state-run National Research Development Corporation last year, AIMIL Pharma Executive Director Sanchit Sharma said. Normally, the ayurvedic medicines have been seen as supplements to increase immunity, he added.
However, the government has been taking several steps to boost the Ayurveda sector. There has been compelling evidence that medicinal herbs can be a first line of defense against infectious diseases.
No wonder, being a rich combination of five vital classical formulations like Tribhuvan Kirti Rasa, Mrtunjay Rasa and Sanjivani Vati with extracts from herbs like Guduchi, Daruharidra, Chirayata, Kutaki, Tulsi, Apamarga and Karanja, Fifatrol improves the immune system to fight against viruses and other infections, eases the associated symptoms and fastens the recovery, underlined the study.
It also helps fast relief from nasal congestion, body ache, sore throat, and headache, it said.
The study on effectiveness of the Ayurveda formulation holds importance given that usually, to treat the infection which is common during winters, people resort directly to antibiotics.
It has a huge economic burden as well as high as USD 22 billion a year, leaving a hole in the pocket of the patients.
URTI accounts for around 10 million outpatient consultations in a year especially because of the severity of its symptoms.

In the early period of the development of Ayurveda, Ashwini Kumars had a great reputation as miraculous wonderful Vaidyas. Chyawan was the descendant of Rishi Maharishi Bhrigu (who was a great personality scholar and who made birth charts of millions of people which is still authentic today). When Chyawan Rishi became very old, he prayed to Ashwini Kumars for his youth recovery.
