आमवात… एक असह्य वेदना

आमवात… एक असह्य वेदना


सांध्यांमध्ये असह्य वेदना असलेल्या एक काकू भेटायला आल्या. त्या त्यांची व्यथा सांगू लागल्या.

काकू : विचित्रच काहीतरी होत डॉक्टर! माझ्या सांध्यांमध्ये वेदना होतात. अगती असह्य. त्यात आतून गरमपणा जाणवतो. स्पर्शसुद्धा सहन होत नाही. सांध्यावर सुजही असते.

मी : आणखी काय होतं?

काकू : अहो, काय सांगू? एका सांध्याचं दुखणं कमी होत नाही तर दुसऱ्या सांध्यात वेदना व्हाययला लागतात. विंचू दंश झाल्यासारख्या वेदना असतात त्या! शिवाय भूकही कमी झाली आहे.

त्यांचे रिपोर्टस् पाहिले. एरिथ्रोसाइट सेडिमेंटेशन रेट (ईएसआर) वाढलेला होता आणि रुमॅटिक अर्भ्रायटिस फॅक्टर ‘पॉझिटिव्ह’ होता.

मी : हा आमवात! वातरोगाचा एक प्रकार.

ताण, आहारमूल्यांची कमतरता, व्यायामाचा अभाव, जास्तीत जास्त बैठे काम, खूप जास्त प्रवास, अतिश्रम, रात्री जागरण आणि दिवसा झोप अशा अनेक कारणांमुळे अशा प्रकारे भेडसावणारे वातरोग होतात. अलीकडे या कारणांमध्ये जंक फूड आणि फास्ट फूडचीही भर पडली आहे.

काकू : मी सगळ्या प्रकारचे औषधोपचार केले आहेत. कशाने काही फरक पडला नाही. सगळ्या ‘पॅथी’ करून झाल्या. आयुर्वेद तेवढा राहिला होता. माझा त्रास कमी होऊ शकतो का?

मी : ‘आमवात’ हा आजार पूर्णपणे बरा होऊ शकेल असे विशिष्ट उपचार आयुर्वेदात आहेत. लक्षणांची चिकित्सा उपचार केला जातो. उपचाराचा विचार करताना, आजार कसा होतो किंवा झाला आहे याचा विचार केला जातो. आता तुमच्या बाबतीत काय आहे ते सांगतो.

तुम्हाला ‘आमवात’ आहे. म्हणजे तुमच्या संधीवर वात वाढला आहे. त्या वातावर ‘आमाचा’ म्हणजे ‘विषाचा’ संचय झाला आहे. आमवाताबाबत कळीचा मुद्दा असा की स्नेहद्रव्याने वातविरोधी चिकित्सा केली तर ‘आम’वाढतो आणि ‘आम’ कमी करण्यासाठी चिकित्सा केली तर वात वाढतो.

काकू : मग कसं काय साधणार?

मी : मग काय! दोन्हीचा परस्परसंबंध साधून त्यांना मुळासकट काढण्यासाठी वात आणि आम यांची क्रमा-क्रमाने आनुषंगिक चिकित्सा करावी लागते. तेच आपण करणार आहोत. पोटातून औषध देताना शरीराची पचनशक्ती वाढेल अशी वातहारक औषधे देईन. महारसनाधी काढा, रास्नासप्तक काढा, सिंहनाद गुग्गुळ अशी योजना करू. पोट साफ व्हावे आणि आमसंचिती व वात कमी होण्यासाठी दररोज सुंठसिद्ध एरंडेल तेल तुम्हाला घ्यावं लागेल.

काकू : बरं आणि आयुर्वेदात बरीच तेलं आणि मसाज वगैरे असतं म्हणे. तस काही नाही?

मला हसूच आले. काकूंनी बरीच माहिती गोळा केलेली दिसली.

मी : आहे तर! याबरोबरच केरळीय पंचकर्मात दोषांच पाचन करण्याकरता एलाकिडी (पोटली मसाज) किंवा पोडिकिडी चिकित्सा देतात. वात आणि विष बाहेर काढण्यासाठी काढा आणि तेलाची बस्तीही असेल. अनुतेलानी नस्यम् चिकित्साही करता येते. सांध्यांमध्ये जास्त वेदना व गरमपणा म्हणजे विषद्रव्य जास्त! तेव्हा वालुका पोटली स्वेदही करावे लागेल असं दिसतंय.

काकू : आणि पथ्य?

मी : आहे तर. थंड, आंबट, खारट, गोड, जड, वातुळ पदार्थ कटाक्षाने टाळावे. चिंच, लिंबू, कैरी, टोमॅटो, डालडा, लोणचे, आइस्क्रीम, आंबा पूर्णपणे बंद! वेदनाशामक गोळ्या घ्यायच्या नाही. वेडंवाकडं बसू नका, बैठक नको. उगाच दगदग नको. अती श्रम नकोत. उकडले तरी चालेल पण अंग गार पडू देऊ नका. म्हणजे एसी, कूलर नको. नेहमी सुंठचुर्ण मिसळून गरम पाणी प्या. मुग, आले, लसूण, जिरे, सुंठ भाजून त्याचे सेवन करता येईल. शिवाय हलका व्यायाम!

आमवातावरचा हा आयुर्वेदातला हमखास उपाय आहे. उपचारात सातत्य, पथ्य पाळल्यास हा आजार निश्चितच बरा होऊ शकतो.





वैद्यकीय ज्ञानाच्या परीक्षेची घडी


वैद्यकीय ज्ञानाच्या परीक्षेची घडी


सर्वे सन्तु निरामया:


डॉक्टर म्हटले की अनेक आजार, अनेक प्रकारच्या, विविध पातळ्यांवरच्या समस्या आणि अगणित केसेस! त्यातील काही अगदी साध्या, सहज बऱ्या होणाऱ्या. तर काही अतिशय

क्लिष्ट, गुंतागुंतीच्या. एवढ्या कठीण की डॉक्टर असण्याला त्या आव्हान देतात. केस कशीही असली तरी रुग्ण बरा झाल्यावर त्याच्या चेहऱ्यावर झळकणारा आनंद वेगळेच

समाधान देऊन जातो. काही केसेस अशा असतात की तेथे डॉक्टरचे कौशल्य, बुद्धिमत्ता, अभ्यास सगळेच पणाला लागते आणि आयुष्यभर ती केस, तो रुग्ण लक्षात राहतो. आज

अशीच एक केस पाहू या.


केस चिमूरची. तिथल्या जिल्हा परिषद सदस्यांनी माझ्याकडे आणली होती. माझ्याकडे रुग्ण म्हणून आलेल्या या रुग्णाचे वय पंचेचाळीस वर्षे होते. व्यवसायाने ते शेतकरी.

माझ्याकडे येण्याच्या एक वर्षपूर्वी शेतावर जात असताना त्यांच्या बंडीचे संतुलन बिघडले आणि ती उलटली. बंडीतून ते समोर फेकले गेले. त्यानंतर त्यांच्या पाठीवरून आणि उजव्या

खांद्यावरून बंडीचे चाक गेले. त्यांचा खांदा फ्रॅक्चर झाला, तेथील हाडांमध्ये मल्टिपल फ्रॅक्चर झाले.


या अपघातानंतर त्यांना दवाखान्यात भरती करण्यात आले. काही छोट्यामोठ्या शस्त्रक्रिया करून हाडे सेट करण्यात आली. हाडे, दोन महिन्यांनी कशीबशी जुळली पण दुखणे, वेदना मात्र कायम होत्या. हळूहळू त्यांच्या उजव्या हाताच्या स्नायुंमध्ये बदल व्हायला लागला. ते स्नायू कमकुवत होऊन हात बारीक होऊ लागला. ते माझ्याकडे आले तेव्हा हात

खूपच बारीक झाला होता, डाव्या हाताच्या अगदी अर्धा! त्या उजव्या हाताच्या संवेदना जवळजवळ नाहिशा झाल्या होत्या. हात नीट उचलला जात नव्हता. माझ्याकडे येण्यापूर्वी

नागपूरमधील सगळ्या मोठ्या शल्यविशारदांकडे, मुंबईतील लीलावती, केईएम रुग्णालयात, दिल्लीतील एम्स रुग्णालयात ते जाऊन आले होते. सगळीकडे, सगळ्याच डॉक्टर्सनी

त्यांना, हातावर शस्त्रक्रिया करावी लागेल असे सांगितले. मात्र, हात बरा होईल याची ५टक्के खात्री सुद्धा कोणीही दिली नाही. माझ्याकडे आले तेव्हा त्यांनी असा त्रास केरळीय

पंचकर्माने बऱ्या होऊ शकतात असे ऐकले होते. पण खात्री नव्हती. त्यामुळे तसे ते हताशच होते. नीट तपासणी केल्यावर २१ दिवसांचा उपचार करण्याचे ठरवले आणि तशी त्यांना

कल्पना दिली.


पहिल्या दिवशी अभ्यंगम् स्वेदन केले. पुढे तीन दिवस एलाकिडी केले. नस्यम बस्ती पूर्ण २१ दिवस सुरू ठेवले. एलाकिडीनंतर पिडीचिल केले. या गृहस्थांच्या दोषानुसार,

नाडीनुसार तेलाची निवड करून लिटर तेल शरीरावर सोडले. त्यामुळे लवचिकता वाढली, अशक्तपणा कमी झाला.


दुसऱ्या आठवड्यात नवराकिडी सुरू केली. नवराकिडीमुळे शरीरात गरमथंडपणा निर्माण होतो तसेच ते बल्य असल्याने चेता पेशी चेतासंस्थेला चालना मिळते. मांसपेशींना दृढता येते. दुसऱ्या आठवड्याच्या शेवटी त्यांना जवळजवळ ६०टक्के आराम मिळाला. हातातील रक्ताभिसरण वाढले, संवेदना आली, हाताचा आकार पुर्ववत व्हायला सुरुवात झाली. हात

उचलला जाऊन वर नेता येऊ लागला. तिसऱ्या आठवड्यात नवराकिडी, नस्यम, बस्ती आणि नंतर एका विशिष्ट तेलाने मालिश असा उपचार केला.


२१ दिवसांत हे गृहस्थ पुर्ण बरे झाले. हाताची रचना, आकार सामान्य झाले, हालचालही सहज होऊ लागली. अभ्यांतर औषधांमध्ये चेतासंस्थेला बल्य अशी औषधं दिली. २१ दिवसात

आयुर्वेदाच्या मदतीने खूप कठीण, क्लिष्ट गोष्ट साध्य झाली. गेल्या सात वर्षांपासून त्या गृहस्थांना काहीही त्रास नाही.

Normally a typical Janu Basti treatment prescribes a 30 minute to 45 minutes of time for retaining the oil preparation on the surface of the knee. Remember the oil touching the skin of the knee and nourishing deep inside the joints to relief pain is the key element of this treatment and central to our consideration of health benefits of medicated Janu Basti.
