And how can Ayurveda help them get the relief from this kind of problems? See this is a very good question actually But nowadays because females, not nowadays, females have to go through physical changes in their life Being a mother, being a lactating mother and menopause Due to that a lot of Iron and Calcium is needed And now after the C-section you know Caesarean Section also many people afterwards they are developing lower back pain that is there And otherwise you know lately also after Menopause because for the Osteoporosis also they are developing So back pain, knee pain and because of the weight also When the heavy load is there waistline fat is more so they are getting knee problems also So that is may be due to the lifestyles and people are running behind everywhere They are doing multitasking So for that only they are suffering And slowly and gradually it is more Because they have to handle many things at a time So we also have many things like Knee care program, Back care program And Spine care program also Exercises are also there, oil treatments are there And typically bones after a certain age bones are dehydrated To hydrate the bones also we have Sarvangadhara, Kativasti, Jaanuvasti, Trivavasti Which is really going to help them a lot So there is a whole lot of things that you can do to helping them And oral medication also they can take natural calcium which is really good for them, natural Calcium and Iron Because maximum our like 50% of Indian women they are suffering from Iron deficiency anyway Which is the biggest problem Due to that, they always feel low, mood wise, physically and mentally also And headache will be there They feel fatigue, tired you know And they don’t feel like doing any work, they are pushing themselves to do many things And you talk about the Calcium and Vitamin D3 which is the biggest problem now Being a vegetarian also And people have the occupational hazard you can say, those people who are in software and all these and sit in the AC room throughout Because of the temperature and all these things So they have also those kind of problems So we have many good supplements So they can take it as supplements also natural source to maintain their Vitamin D3 Calcium and Iron also So Dr. Mitali, Regarding today’s women and their issues with health Is there something like a Rejuvenation program or a Detox program in Ayurveda That you can really help them and make a difference to their health? Definitely you know rejuvenation program is the most important thing and Detox also First of all, you have to purify the body Then only you can start the rejuvenation For rejuvenation you have to have detoxification then only start the rejuvenation medicines for detoxification it is better to have an in-house program So they can stay somewhere, they can cleanse the system It depends upon their system as to what exactly detoxification they need Then only they can start the rejuvenation program at home also Some of the simple herbs will be there or medications will be there So that guidelines will be given to them, they can follow it at home For that there is no need to stay anywhere But initially maybe they have to spend 5 to 6 days over the in-house program that will be good for them
To understand and learn Exactly And they have to go through a certain diet that time and follow some of the diet plan And medications also it will be there So throughout if they travel and go it will not be easy to maintain all these things So for that we need to have to have here They need to have those here So, preventive health is important, At the same time today there is the tendency to reach out or panic in health conditions or health situation So what can be the home remedies or what can the woman do to take care of their and their family’s health? Yeah that is the things specifically women has to know Because they are the first doctor in the family When the child is not feeling well or any of the family members are not well There they have to you know and at the same time they have to Some of the important things are there in office or at workplaces or anything They are really stressed out They cannot give 100% to any of the places So first of all I tell all the women that they have to know little bit of herbs also. Which they can start it at home, it is a home remedy In our Ashram we just specifically launched the program its called as Ayur Jagruti So for all the women it is one or two days program. So they have to come and they have to learn what are the specific herbs that they can give it to their kids And then like you can say first aid they can start at home. Afterwards anyways doctors are there for the further things but they can start these small things at home. So it is always better to have a first level intervention at home. Exactly So they will also be stress free and all these things will be well maintained. And it is a great comfort to the family when they know that the woman in the house has got some knowledge. Exactly
And the diet also everything she can give accordingly. So that is why we say, whatever is the father of the diseases, sick or ill-diet is the mother. So diet also has a 50% role Because if at all we are following some medicines and eating ill-diet and you know abusing our body in that way So there is no use and end of the day you are going to fall sick. So first of all both the things we have to hand-to-hand follow like diet and medications also if anything we are taking. So if the woman knows how to follow, how to maintain the family diet plan and all these things for everything, everybody So it will be really going to help them, for her also and for the family also. So an awareness of what is good diet and what is the best, is important.
Exactly. And follow some of the things You know now nowadays everybody is running behind the Yoga, Pranayam and all those things. It is the most important thing to keep the body and mind both the ways stress-free also. So that is also, maybe you know, from your busy lifestyle 15-20 minutes you can spend everyday and do these things. That also makes you feel mentally very free and relaxed and rejuvenated also. Any tip you would like to give to people as to what they can do in their daily routine in terms of their exercise regime? Which will help them to keep the health at a very good state And keep them healthy and happy and comfortable? See first of all walking is the most important thing Maybe 15-20 minutes, every day you can go for walking And exercises Surya Namaskar is the best thing To increase your metabolism and it is very good for the intuitive minds also. But Surya Namaskar also it has to be very specific, if the person is having back pain and all this thing.. Always you do in a, like you know comfort zone. Any exercise you are doing Not very intensively, so you can do it in that way. And elderly people if they don’t know how to do it also Like they have lot of back issues and all these things are there Even they can do some exercise in the swimming pool also, which is the hydrotherapy, which is the most important thing also. There will be no load on any of the spine and bones. So Dr. Mitali Madhusmita, it was a pleasure having you and thanks for your wonderful inputs. Thank you! Thank you!
