The Raj program for gastritis is conducted under the supervision of an Ayurveda Health Consultant and draws on knowledge from Maharishi Ayurveda, the world's oldest and most complete system of natural health care.
Through its unique assessment of causal imbalances at the basis of a condition and its wide range of time-tested recommendations, Maharishi Ayurveda provides the most comprehensive natural approach for gastritis available today.
Ayurveda Assessment of Balance and Imbalance in Gastritis
A quick review of gastritis shows how many imbalances could contribute to the condition. Therefore, gaining true relief from gastritis will usually require a multifaceted, natural approach like the one offered at The Raj.
In erosive gastritis drugs, alcohol, infection and acute stress all can precipitate the condition. In most non-erosive gastritis conditions H. pylori is implicated as the primary cause. Ayurveda theory looks at infection as more of a host problem than a virus or bacteria condition. H. pylori can often be found in people who suffer from no significant symptoms of gastritis. Symptoms occur when the gut becomes a conducive environment for H. pylori to colonize. According to Ayurveda, it is often the buildup of toxins and impurities and blockage of proper circulation in the gut that creates the ground for mucosal irritation from both the toxins and H. pylori growth.
These impurities come from improper food intake, poor digestion, poor metabolism and blocked elimination. Accumulation of stress also exacerbates the condition as does disruption of natural biological cycles through improper sleeping and eating patterns.
Because so many factors can play a role in the condition Ayurveda Assessment of Balance and Imbalance does not simply identify the gross physical abnormality and match up drugs to a symptom. This is because people can have the same disease for different reasons. For example, ten people could walk into a doctor's office with a headache and have it for ten different reasons. Likewise not everyone has gastritis for the same reasons.
An Ayurveda evaluation determines the imbalances in the functioning modes of the body and then offers natural treatments for restoring balance. These underlying imbalances are the root causes of a condition and must be removed if real healing is to occur. By determining the causal imbalances at the basis of a disorder, an Ayurveda evaluation helps address the fundamental source of ill health in the individual.
Since gastritis can be influenced by many factors, such as diet, digestion, toxin accumulation, stress, exercise levels and daily routine, the Ayurveda approach to the condition is a comprehensive one that balances many physiological functions simultaneously.
The Root Causes of Gastritis
- Toxins accumulating in tissues and blocking circulation.
- Poor nutrition.
- Poor digestion.
- Imbalance of the nervous system.
- Accumulation of physical and mental stress.
- Lowering of natural resistance and immunity.
- Disruption of natural biological rhythms.
The common modern medical approach to match drugs to symptoms does not completely address many of these factors. As a result, modern medicine often cannot fully remove the disorder and the condition becomes chronic. Chronic means that the condition persists over time even with the best modern medical treatment. Currently over 100 million Americans suffer from a chronic condition, indicating that some new approach is needed in our health care.
A Natural Treatment Program for gastritis
Following is a discussion of how The Raj program for chronic conditions provides the most comprehensive set of natural recommendations available today to address the true causes of gastritis. These therapies are not only effective at removing the imbalances at the basis of chronic disorders but also have no significant side-effects. The goal of this Ayurveda approach is to enliven the body's natural healing and self-repair ability not only to help cure gastritis, but also to prevent disorder and create the highest state of health and well-being.
1) Removing the Buildup of Toxins and Impurities
Most chronic disorders start when toxins accumulate in tissues and begin to disrupt the delicate biochemistry there. Toxin buildup can also obstruct the channels of circulation and elimination. This blockage prevents proper nutrition from reaching the tissues and blocks the processes that cleanse them of impurities.
Your Ayurveda Health Consultant will provide natural recommendations to remove and help prevent toxin accumulation from:
- Foods poorly digested
- Poor digestion
- Poor elimination
- Improper metabolism
- Mental and physical stress
