Most modern diseases are caused by prolonged exposure to a combination of faulty lifestyle, food habits and toxic environmental factors. Chronic stress has a vital role in immune disorders.
There are two types of immunity which protects our body from any infection. These are Innate and Adaptive. Innate immunity - this type of immunity is present at birth and provides the first barrier against microorganisms which causes infections. Adaptive Immunity - it is the second barrier to infections and acquired later in life as - immunity after an immunization.
The higher mortality rate is observed due to AIDS, it is the best example of immune disorders.
In Ayurveda it is known as Byadhikshamata "OJA", and described two types as Par and Apar Oja.
Symptoms of Lack of Immunity
- Recurrent infections
- Lack of energy without any pathology
- Easily trapped by diseases
- Less power to fight against diseases
- Easily tiered and over stressed
- Faulty life style and food habbits
- Metabolic disorders
Patients should drink cold and fresh water, milk, buttermilk, sugar cane juice and easily digestible foods.
One should follow the recognised conventions and traditions of his family and the religion. The following natural urges should not be suppressed:- passing of flatus, defaecation, urination, sneezing, weeping, vomiting, breathing when fatigued, thirst, hunger, sleep and coitus. Seeing of or reading of sex-stimulating pictures and novels respectively, these acts are harmful to eyes also.
Skin and nails provide a look at the inner health of the body. These outward "signs" can tell you a lot about the condition of your inward health.
Often we may have problems with our skin such as dull skin, skin likely to break out in blotches or skin that dehydrates easily. All of these problems and many more indicate the lack of proper nutrition.
Poor diet, drugs, alcohol, excessive sun exposure, environmental toxins and tobacco smoke increase free radical damage and decrease enzyme activity. Both free radical damage and the reduction in enzyme activity can hasten the appearance of the following problems; wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin and ultimately can also to skin cancer.
Free radicals oxidize cells, making normal cell metabolism impossible. Enzymes can help prevent or treat skin damage by fighting these free radicals and reducing stress on bodily systems.
The skin reflects our overall health and acts as a barrier against the outside world, is the largest organ and is composed primarily of collagen. Collagen fibers form an elastin network that makes up connective tissues. The skins elasticity, strength and smoothness come from the makeup of the collagen fibers.
- protects internal organs and tissues from injury
- preserves valuable moisture and helps maintain normal body temperature
- protects the body from toxins, viruses and bacteria
The urinary tract is made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. These organs work together to produce, transport, store, and excrete urine, the yellowish fluid that contains waste products removed from the blood. Urine contains the by-products of our body's metabolism, salts, toxins, and water. For instance, blood, protein, or white blood cells in the urine may indicate injury, infection, or inflammation of the kidneys. Glucose in the urine may be an indication of diabetes.
Problems in the urinary system can be caused by ageing, illness, or injury. As you get older, changes in the kidneys' structure cause them to lose some of their ability to remove wastes from the blood. Also, the muscles in your ureters, bladder, and urethra tend to lose some of their strength. You may have more urinary infections because the bladder muscles do not tighten enough to empty your bladder completely. A decrease in strength of muscles of the sphincters and the pelvis can also cause incontinence, the unwanted leakage of urine. Illness or injury can also prevent the kidneys from filtering the blood completely or block the passage of urine.
Some Diseases of the Urinary Symptoms:
While passing urine some people feel burning sensation in the urinary passage. An infection in the urinary tract caused by diseases like gonorrhoea, enlargement of prostate, a stone in the urinary bladder or concentrated urine, as it happens in summer might be responsible for this type of complaint. Burning sensation may occur along with the passage of urine or may occur even after that. It may subside by taking some alkaline drinks or few glasses of water.
Presence of blood in the urine is called hematuria. According to Ayurveda it is a form of Adhoga Rakta Pitta. It is commonly caused by stones or infection in the genito-urinary tract and some other haemorrhagic conditions.
This refers to the inflammation of the kidney. It is of several types and in different stages of the disease it produces different types of symptoms. In Ayurveda it is called vrikka shotha. Depending upon the variety of the nephritis, the signs and symptoms differ. Usually there is oedema in the face, which is more prominent in the morning and slowly subsides as the day passes on. The blood pressure may increase and the patient may suffer from biliousness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, headache and diarrhoea.
It is the involuntary urination at night. Children after the age of 3 or 4 years normally possess sufficient control over their urinary sphincters in as much as they pass urine only when they want. Because of certain reasons, this control does not manifest because of which they continue to pass urine in bed at night. This continues in some cases, even up to the age of 15. Both boys and girls suffer from this ailment.
Urinary stones are generally formed by calcium, phosphates or oxalates. The main parts of the urinary tract are the kidney, ureter, bladder and urethra. The stones are formed primarily in the kidney and sometimes remain there without being noticed for a long time. In certain circumstances they are slowly dissolved or dislodged and come down, and during this process, they become lodged in a narrow part of the tract, giving rise to excruciating pain. Stones are formed in the body because of vayu. It creates a type of dryness I the body because of which the chemicals start accumulating over the nucleus that ultimately takes the shape of a stone. At times the entire kidney is filled with these stones and it becomes calcified and stops functioning. If urine is not excreted through the kidneys or excreted in small quantities, uremia sets in and causes many complications. The same phenomenon takes place if a piece of stone gets lodged in ureter or bladder. The patient experiences pain in the lumber region of the kidneys at the back of the body.
Urinary tract infections
It is caused by bacteria in the urinary tract. Women get UTIs more often than men. Drinking lots of fluids also helps by flushing out the bacteria. The name of the UTI depends on its location in the urinary tract. An infection in the bladder is called cystitis. If the infection is in one or both of the kidneys, the infection is called pyelonephritis
It is inflammation of the prostate gland that results in urinary frequency and urgency, burning or painful urination (dysuria), and pain in the lower back and genital area, among other symptoms. In some cases, prostatitis is caused by bacterial infection. But the more common forms of prostatitis are not associated with any known infecting organism.
It is the presence of abnormal amounts of protein in the urine. Healthy kidneys take wastes out of the blood but leave in protein. Protein in the urine does not cause a problem by itself. But it may be a sign that your kidneys are not working properly.
*Hot spices are to be strictly avoided. The patient should be given as much water as possible to drink. Fresh lemon juice, fresh coconut water, orange juice, sugarcane juice and pineapple juice are extremely useful in this condition. The patient should be given fruits like apple, grapes, peaches and plums in good quantity.
The patient should not expose himself to sun or heat. Excessive perspiration takes away lot of water from the body and the urine thus becomes concentrated. Passage of this concentrated urine through the urinary tract causes irritation and gives rise to burning sensation.

Though more prized for its medicinal virtues than its edible quality, this interesting member of the family Rutaceae is, nevertheless, of sufficient importance as an edible fruit to be included here. The bael fruit, Aegle marmelos Correa (syns. Feronia pellucida Roth., Crataeva marmelos L.), is also called Bengal quince, Indian quince, golden apple, holy fruit, stone apple, bel, bela, sirphal, maredoo and other dialectal names in India; matum and mapin in Thailand; phneou or pnoi in Cambodia; bau nau in Vietnam; bilak, or maja pahit in Malaya; modjo in Java; oranger du Malabar in French; marmelos in Portuguese.

Assists in protecting Liver, dissolving stones in the kidneys. Acts as a diuretic agent. From ancient time, medicinal plants classified as Rasayana in Ayurveda are believed to be useful in strengthening the haematopoietic and immune system of an individual. Anaemia is a common form of nutritional disorder, the principal cause of which is iron deficiency. It is prevalent in both industrialized and developing countries. Infants, children, women of childbearing age, pregnant women, and the elderly are considered to be particularly vulnerable to iron deficiency because their intake or absorption is poor. There is need to evaluate the potential of Ayurvedic drugs to counteract toxicity of modern therapy. A. longifolia Nees (Fam: Acanthaceae) is a wild herb commonly found in moist places on the banks of tanks, ditches, paddy fields, etc., throughout India and Sri Lanka. It is a source of the Ayurvedic drug Kokilaaksha and the Unani drug Talimakhana. The seeds are acrid, bitter, aphrodisiac, tonic, sedative, and useful in diseases of the blood. However, there is no information available about its effect on the blood profile as well as on the stem cell proliferation. The present investigation was designated to explore the haematological and stem cell proliferation profile on the experimental rats exposed to the extracts of A. longifolia.
Botanical Name : Cassia auriculata
Family : Leguminoae
Common Name : avaram syn cassia, Tanner's Cassia Flowers
Tamil : Avarai
SansKrit : Thalpota
Sri Lankan Name : Ranawara
Other names : Tanner's Cassia Flowers
Cassia auriculata, because of the tannin it contains acts as an astringent. It is largely employed in diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus and under its use the quantity of urine and the sugar excreted are reduced. An infusion of the leaves and flowers is used as a beverage by diabetic patients.
The flowers a "tea" are prepared which is prescribed in diabetes. The seeds are also used in diabetes, a compound powder made with all parts of the plant being considered a specific.
Properties and uses:
This is frequently used in native medicine in diseases of the urinary organs in particular. It is diuretic and is an ingredient in prescriptions for Powdered Ranawara seed with Silajatu and honey is recommended highly for all cases of diabetes, and leaves are dried and sold in the bazaars under the name of Ranawara tea. Many natives use it in place of real tea.
Hepato protection, this study was investigated the effect of Cassia auriculata leaf extract administrates orally on alcohol induced liver damaged animal models. Treatment with Cassia auriculata leaf extract at a dose of 250 mg kg(-1) body weight and 500 mg kg(-1) body weight to rats. Cassia auriculata leaf extract can offer protection against free radical mediated oxidative stress in experimental hepatotoxicity.
Anti hyperglycemic and anti lipidimic activity, Cassia auriculata flower extract (CFEt), at doses of 0.15, 0.30 and 0.45 g/kg body weight for 30 days, suppressed the elevated blood glucose and lipid levels in diabetic rats. Cassia auriculata at 0.45 g/kg was found to be comparable to glibenclamide.
The ethanol extract of the roots of Cassia auriculata was studied for its nephroprotective activity in cisplatin- and gentamicin-induced renal injury in male albino rats. In the cisplatin model, the extract at doses of 300 and 600 mg/kg body wt. reduced elevated blood urea and serum creatinine and normalized the histopathological changes in the curative regimen. In the gentamicin model, the ethanol extract at a dose of 600 mg/kg body wt. reduced blood urea and serum creatinine effectively in both the curative and the preventive regimen. The extract had a marked nitric oxide free-radical-scavenging effect. The findings suggest that the probable mechanism of nephroprotection by C. auriculata against cisplatin- and gentamicin-induced renal injury could be due to its antioxidant and free-radical-scavenging property.
Cassia auriculata - We have investigated hyponidd for its possible antihyperglycaemic and antioxidant effect in diabetic rats. Rats were rendered diabetic by streptozotocin (STZ) (45 mg kg(-1) body weight). Oral administration of hyponidd (100 mg kg(-1) and 200 mg kg(-1)) for 45 days resulted in significant lowered levels of blood glucose and significant increased levels of hepatic glycogen and total haemoglobin. An oral glucose tolerance test was also performed in experimental diabetic rats in which there was a significant improvement in blood glucose tolerance in the rats treated with hyponidd. Hyponidd administration also decreased levels of glycosylated haemoglobin, plasma thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, hydroperoxides, ceruloplasmin and alpha-tocopherol in diabetic rats. Plasma reduced glutathione and vitamin C were significantly elevated by oral administration of hyponidd. The effect of hyponidd at a dose of 200 mg kg(-1) was more effective than glibenclamide (600 microg kg(-1)) in restoring the values to near normal. The results showed that hyponidd exhibits antihyperglycaemic and antioxidant activity in STZ-induced diabetic
