What has happened to me? Asked my patient
These are some of the very common complaints I come across in my clinic in routine. With such patients I deal by following ayurvedic line of treatment. In ayurveda this kind of symptoms are called ” kalm ” meaning getting fatigued without doing any work. This condition occurs in body when our digestive system fails to digest food properly thereby initiating production of a toxin known as ama.
Ama formation occurs when there is lack of proper digestion in body and body is unable to assimilate any of the digested material that is very essential for energy production in body. This toxin hence effecting body also pollutes the little bit part of food that has been assimilated. This situation can also arise when jatharagni (can be compared to digestive juices) decreases, which results in lowering of digestive power of our digestive system and if in this state we keep on ingesting food, will lead to formation of ama (toxin). This condition also arises when the vata, pitta and kapha dosha gets imbalanced leading to total disturbance in body.
In simple terminology we can say that ama formation occurs due to indigestion (ajeern as called in ayurveda).
Common symptoms of indigestion are heaviness in body, distension of abdomen, and loss of appetite, coated tongue, headache, mental and physical weakness, constipation, and flatulence, nausea, vertigo and hyperacidity.
Ayurveda visualize kalm as only symptoms not as a disease. Main line of treatment is that to detoxify the ama production that will help in recovering normal digestion hence will be able to digest the ama.
Advised life style during the kalm stage
· Avoid in take of heavy and greasy stuff
· Avoid alcohol
· Avoid sweets and chocolates
· Avoid non vegetarian food stuff
· Take only light and easily digestible food
· Morning and evening walk should be added in routine
· Drink plenty of water especially luke warm water
· Avoid cold stuff like ice creams, cold drinks etc.
