The Raj program for sinusitis 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 sinusitis available today.
Ayurveda Assessment of Balance and Imbalance in Sinusitis
A quick review of the sinusitis condition shows how many imbalances could contribute to the condition. Therefore a true healing of sinusitis will usually require a multifaceted, natural approach like the one offered at The Raj.
Sinusitis usually starts with some infection or allergic reaction in the paranasal sinuses. Poor diet, digestion and elimination can create an internal environment in the sinuses that allows infection and allergies to more easily occur (see the "allergy" section in our web page for discussion of the Ayurveda approach to allergies). Stress, poor lifestyle, bad circulation and lack of rejuvenative regimens can deteriorate the body's immune response to invading organisms in the sinus area. We quickly see how many variables can predispose individuals to infection and allergy in the sinuses.
The 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 sinusitis for the same reasons.
Ayurveda evaluation determines the imbalances in the functioning modes of the body. 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, Ayurveda assessment helps our Ayurveda Health Consultants address the fundamental source of ill health in the individual.
Since sinusitis 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 Sinusitis
According to Maharishi Ayurveda, the following general types of imbalances are at the source of most chronic conditions, including sinusitis:
- 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 Sinusitis
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 sinusitis. 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 sinusitis, 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.
