Ayurveda is a very ancient old science of India that treats the symptoms and the cause of various skin diseases. According to Ayurveda, the skin has six layers, located not only on the external surfaces but also internally. A skin disease starts mostly from the skin-deep tissue called dermis. Because we have seen that in grave skin disease, oral medicine is recommended along with external application. Unless and until the root cause of the skin diseases is not treated, the diseases can’t be cured properly. Ayurveda always tries to root out the specificities of skin diseases by removing the possible cause of the problem. Skin disease is deep seated and it is not so easy to cure the same by just external application but by the use of certain Ayurvedic medicines, complete treatment of skin disease is possible.
According to Ayurveda, the two main causes of skin disease are the wrong lifestyle and a wrong diet which a person follows knowingly and unknowingly. The diet that are against the nature of Prakriti ( nature) of a person causes imbalance in bodily energies leading to skin diseases such as allergy, eczema, urticaria and many other small problems of skin. The prime doshas of skin disease is the body element Pitta. Pitta symbolizes the heat and the fire. Foods, which are high on Pitta content, can increase the fire element in the body. So all foods that are high on pitta content such as tomatoes, yoghurt, citrus food, oily, spicy and greasy food be eliminated from the diet unless the patient doesn’t get cured from skin disease.
• Allergy • Eczema • Psoriasis • Hives • Acne • Moles • Measles • Cold sores These are the most common skin disease found but there are some grave skin diseases such as skin cancer, herpes, canker sore that are due to some other changes in the body and infections from a virus or bacteria.
Removing the root cause of the disease is the main line of treatment in Ayurveda. Some simple home remedies that can cure skin disease is- a) Taking Neem leaves in the morning in an empty stomach. b) Application of coconut oil and camphor on the affected area can cure the disease. c) Fresh juice of apricot may be applied on affected parts of the body. d) Taking wheat grass juice is highly helpful because it increases the immunity level of the body. e) Two to three teaspoons of aloe vera gel on an empty stomach can cure allergies and other skin diseases. Note – Before implication of certain remedies, it is advisable to take proper guidance with an Ayurveda and a Medical astrologer.
Astrology science is the compact bucket of our mundane and spiritual path. According to medical astrology, our each body part is associated with various planets as for example, the upper part of our body above the chest is ruled by the ascendant or zodiac sign Taurus. Similarly, the onset of skin diseases even though you are having a disciplined and balanced diet can be due to the association of some malefic planets in the disease-causing house of the birth chart.
• If Mercury and Jupiter are afflicted by Rahu, then it can cause skin disease. • If Venus is afflicted or negative in the birth chart then it changes the thought process, which can make the skin of the face dull. • If Saturn is underactive in the horoscope then it can cause eczema, excessive moisture, blisters and pustules. • Ill placed Mars brings boils and rashes. • Malefic Venus deteriorates the beauty of the skin According to Medical astrology, these are just a general description for the onset of skin diseases in a person. Don’t consider only theses condition for any skin problem in your body because there are other planetary combinations in a birth chart that is essential to study before drawing any major inference.
