Ayurveda and skin problems

Ayurveda and skin problems

According to Ayurveda, any imbalance in the three energies or Doshas of the body (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) leads to diseases. Digestion also has an impact on health. The digestive fire or Agni when healthy, ensures the body’s metabolism is in good condition. A weakened Agni leads to the formation of Ama or toxins. These toxins can affect various tissues and lead to the development of skin diseases.

Improper nutrition, exposure to chemicals, and pollutants are some of the causes of skin conditions. The Pitta Dosha is deeply associated with skin problems. An imbalance in Pitta weakens Agni and leads to skin diseases. Some other causes of skin diseases, as per Ayurveda include suppressing natural urges, consuming foods with opposing qualities (like sour fruits and milk), or going out in the sun after a heavy meal.

Skin problems are dealt with in Ayurveda using a holistic approach. It focuses on improving Dosha imbalance, rekindling the digestive fire, and providing a long-term resolution for skin problems. 

The treatments for skin ailments in Ayurveda include:

    1. Providing a cooling effect is required when there is a Pitta imbalance. Coconut oil is helpful in this. 
    2. Foods like milk products, beans, cabbage, green leafy vegetables, and mango should be consumed. Excessive use of spices should be avoided.
    3. It is recommended to avoid foods like peas, soy, apples, and raw vegetables. Excess consumption of meat, alcohol, refined sugar, and excessively spicy or salty food should be avoided.
    4. Panchakarma is a recommended treatment option for skin diseases like eczema and acne. The therapy needs to be administered by a trained practitioner and would be performed over a period of days. It includes oil massage on the body, induced sweating and purging, and consumption of medicated ghee. The treatment helps remove toxins from the body and detoxify the body.
    5. Using oils on a daily basis is recommended. Applying medicated oil to the skin helps manage skin diseases on a long-term basis. These oils are prepared using coconut oil or sesame oil as a base. They ensure a moisturizing effect on the skin. This keeps it soft, reduces skin dryness, and associated symptoms.
    6. The practice of Yoga, regular physical activity, Pranayama, and breathing exercises is helpful in the holistic management of diseases. Being relaxed is important to reduce stress, as stress causes the production of hormones that can aggravate skin conditions.
    7. Avoiding exposure to chemicals found in cosmetics (that have parabens), pollutants, and other allergens can help reduce allergies and other skin problems.
