What is metabolic disorder?

Metabolic disorders are the inborn errors of metabolism, encompassing deficiencies in enzymes involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids derived from proteins, and fatty acids liberated from lipids. A metabolic disorder occurs when the metabolism process fails and causes the body to have either too much or too little of the essential substances needed to stay healthy.

Types of Metabolic Disorder:

Metabolic Disorder Treatment in JIVA Ayurveda:

JIVA Ayurveda treat metabolic disorder as correction of digestive fire by internal herbal medicinal formulations, along with correct diet, physical activities and external treatment which removes the channel blockages & detoxifies the body.

  1. Treatment of Toxins for Correcting Metabolic Process & Enhancing Immunity: Toxins complicates metabolic syndrome because these can inhibit the effectiveness of herbs and other medical treatment. Purification therapy called “Panchakarma” is done for removing toxins.
    • Purification Therapy: Purification begins with proper preparation. This process involves oiling the body both internally and externally.
Treating the external portion Treating the internal portion
The external portion is performed using body oils, which may be applied in a variety of ways in the form of therapies. The internal portion is performed using medicated clarified butter with special herbs cooked in it. Once oiled, the patient’s body is exposed to heat through steam or dry heat.

 

This combination of oil and heat loosens toxins trapped in the tissues of the body and dilates the channels of the body allowing the toxins to return to the digestive system for elimination.

  • Elimination Process: The second phase of “Panchakarma” is the elimination procedure. This include Herbal decoction enemas, purgation, Cleansing of the nasal passages and sinuses, Vomiting and bloodletting.
  • Medicated Purgation: Medicated purgation with suitable formulations in regular intervals will help in alleviating bile vitiation and removal of blockage of subtle channels.
  • Pacifying Drugs: Herbs and formulations which specifically act on liver function are used for treating metabolic syndrome.
  • Therapeutic emesis – induced vomiting which helps clear the upper gastrointestinal tract to the duodenum (end of the stomach) and a part of the respiratory tract.
  • Enema using medicated oil – the oil enema helps lubricate the rectal area and remove the lipid soluble waste out through the anus.
  • Nasal Administration: nasal inhalation of medicated substances which help clear the respiratory tract and the para nasal sinuses.
  1. Yoga: The different Yoga postures which provide stretching and increase blood flow around abdomen area give good result.
  2. Lifestyle Modification: There is a big role of healthy lifestyle in treating metabolic syndrome. The patient should eat easily digestible light food and do regular exercise. Oily, heavy meals, alcohol intake as well as over eating behaviour, sedentary life styles should be avoided by the patients of metabolic syndrome.
