What is AIDS according to Allopathy
It means acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. It is a disease of the human immune system caused by the Human Immuno Deficiency Virus (H.I.V.). The condition progressively reduces the effectiveness of the immune system and leaves individuals susceptible to opportunistic infections and tumors. H.I.V. is transmitted through direct contact of a mucous membrane or the blood stream with a bodily fluid containing such as blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre seminal fluid and breast milk.
Diagnosis of AIDS
Many people unless tested are not aware that they are infected with HIV. HIV tests are usually performed on various bloods. Many laboratories use fourth generation screening tests which detect anti-HIV antibody (lg G and lgM) and the HIV P24 antigen. The detection of HIV antibody or antigen in a patient previously known to be negative is evidence of HIV infection. Individuals whose first specimen indicates evidence of HIV infection will have a repeat test on a second blood sample to confirm the results.
Infections are common in people with AIDS
People with AIDS also have higher risk of developing various cancers such as Kaposi’s sarcoma, Cervical Cancer and Cancers of the immune system known as lymphomas. Additionally, people with AIDS after have systemic symptoms of infection like fevers, sweats (Particularly at night), swollen glands, chills, weakness and weight loss.
HIV is a retrovirus that primarily infects vital organs of the human immune system such as CD4 + T cells (A subset of T Cells). Once HIV has killed so many CD4+T cells that there are fewer than 200 of these cells per microlitre of blood, cellular immunity is lost.
Acute HIV infection progresses over time to clinical latent HIV infection and then to early symptomatic HIV infection and later to AIDS, which is identified either on the basis of the amount of CD4+ T cells remaining in the blood and/or the presence of certain infections as noted above.
In early stage HIV infection (CD4 count more than per micro litre of blood TB typically presents as a pulmonary disease.
The AIDS diagnosis still stands even if after treatment, the CD4 T Cell count rises to above 200 per microlitre of blood.
Diagnosis of AIDS AS PER Ayurveda
To treatment all the apparent symptoms of AIDS like feeling of weakness, constant fever, loose motion and formentation of rashes on the skin are taken note of and confirm at any test then is undertaken.
As Ayurveda has no concept on virus the disease is held as caused by the imbalance of all the three doshas. In this diseases body metals are destructed due to the accertuation of fire of constitution body metals or dhatvagni. This causes disorder in analysis of the three Vata, Pitt and Kaph Doshas and disorder set in the carried out. To further confirm allopathic pathological tests like CDH and T cell tests are undertaken.
Treatment of AIDS
It consists of highly active antiretroviral therapy or HAART introduced since 1996 current. Standard goals of HAART include improvement in the patient’s quality of life reduction in complications and reduction of HIV viremia below the limit of delection, but it does not cure the patient of HIV nor does it prevent the return, once treatment is stopped, of high blood levels of HIV, often HAART resistant. Despite this it has been well accepted having shown remarkable progress in patients.
Treatment of AIDS As per Ayurveda
There is marked difference in the Ayurvedic approach to treatment. While is allopathy normally diseases occur due to either bacteria or virus- In case of the former, antibiotics are administered till such time as the patient’s body has developed resistance power avis the bacterial onslaught. But for virus there is no conclusive treatment so for even in allopathy. Skill treatment progresses along the understanding the life cycle of the virus, ecological factors like climate and temperature etc. So that a well balanced counteracting strategy is made to eliminate the virus. Besides this the attendant condition like are the carriers of the virus are also eliminated to put an end to the presence of the virus causing the disease. These carriers may be mosquitoes, poverty birds or swine etc.
As against this, Ayurvedic treatment is based on the conviction that the internal strength of resistance to fight the bacteria or viruses should be increased so that the body is no longer prone to be affected by the external bacteria and viruses. Ayurveda therefore, uses jadi booties and rasa rasayan in enhance internal strength.
Lavanya follows the ancient practice of performing yagyas by the entire village the problems of plague and cholera etc. Havan of Jadi booties tends to exterminate the visham. Ayurveda makes we of dhumra chikitsa to get rid of the viruses.
At Lavanya for the Facilities Treatment of AIDS
As a prelude to treatment a thorough examination of the various aspects of health based on the science of Vikriti is undertaken to arrive at the root cause(s) of the disease. The doshas, dhatus, agni, srota and mal are studio to know about any disorder.
Equipped with the analysis we then proceed to undertake Panchkarma which has the effect of detoxifying every cell of the body. Because jadi booties are nature’s products, they do not have hormone side effects like the simple compouns of allopathic drugs.
We use jadi booties or herbal medicines. After Panchakarma Ras-Rasayan is administered. Rasa Rasayan means mercury, gold, silver, copper, zink, Nag, Bang and iron (Sapta Dhatus), and diamond, Neelam, Manik, Moti, Prabal, Pokhraj, Panna, Gomed, Vai durya (Nine Ratnas).
Both these dhatus and Ratnas are “cultured” with jadi booties and these are converted into oxides or sulphates. They are then ground to yield higher effectiveness by acquiring micro size. The world today by acquiring micro size. The world today knows that nano technology has the capability to multiply the impact multi fold. The above medicine is administered in well tested and measured way in very small doses.
At Lavanya treatment includes Deva Vyapashraya also. Since AIDS is a disease induced by bad deeds of both the previous and present life i.e. a karmaja vyadhi. It is advisable to invoke the blessings of gods by uttering hymns or mantras in mantropachar and performing havens in appropriately.
Made haven kundas in which jadi booties are offered to fire to emit beneficial smoke which has immense beneficial also. It provides a unique dimension to treatment vice. Smoke treatment or dhumra chikitsa through curative inhalation. These agnikundas are constructed in accordance with the vedic guidelines to be free from advantage to the performer of the havens.
Similarly, Satvavajay treatment is provided by introducing meditation appropriate Yoga asanas- All these steps are taken to instill an all round faith and conviction in the patient that all that is possible as treatment is offered to him.
We know that no sooner an. AIDS patient knows that he/she has contracted AIDS, his/her morale is shattered and he becomes a mental broke which condition is even worse than the contracting of the deadly disease. Satvavajay is an attempt to being back his lost morale and trust in life.
