How to Prevent Anaphylaxis? Top 10 Preventive Measures – As Per Ayurveda

Anaphylaxis is a severe and life-threatening condition that occurs due to an allergic reaction and involves the entire body. It can start within seconds to minutes after exposure to an allergen and symptoms include skin rashes, itching, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, and loss of consciousness. The condition requires immediate medical attention. Ayurveda-the science of life has strong concepts and beliefs that help to restore doshas balance and maintain overall health and wellness. In this article, we will learn about the top 10 measures to prevent anaphylaxis using Ayurvedic principles and concepts.

Top 10 Measures for Prevention of Anaphylaxis

These measures strengthen the body and help to avoid the threatening condition of Anaphylaxis.

1. Identification of Triggering Factors that Promote Doshas Vitiation

It is very important to understand the body’s unique constitution or prakriti and also the current state of doshas imbalance or vikriti. By understanding these factors you can recognize some probable allergens that can disrupt the doshas balance. It is very important to identify these triggers so that a severe allergic reaction can be avoided. 

2. Diet Based on Individual Doshas

It is important to follow a diet based on the dominant dosha and the current state of doshas imbalance. Additionally one should prioritize intake of fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables that are in alliance with the unique body constitution. The diet and lifestyle that is in accordance with doshas balance is favorable for the body and helps to strengthen the immune system and limit the susceptibility to allergies. 

3. Herbal Remedies to Prevent Anaphylaxis

You must incorporate herbs like turmeric, licorice, and tulsi in your diet to detoxify your body and strengthen the immune system. These herbs are naturally anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-allergic in nature. They help to promote overall wellness by strengthening the immune system. Moreover, they also work to limit future allergic reactions and also limit the chances of anaphylaxis. 

4. By Improving Digestive Fire or Agni

Ayurveda emphasizes on the importance of agni or digestive system and believes that diseases occur due to an imbalance in the normal functioning of the digestive fire. Therefore, it is crucial to have a strong digestive fire or agni and it can be achieved by measures like mindful eating, and eating freshly prepared warm and cooked foods. Moreover, it is important to include spices like cumin, asafetida, carom, fennel, and fenugreek seeds. The reignited digestive fire or agni prevents the accumulation of toxins or ama that are responsible for triggering the allergic response. 

5. Detoxification or Panchakarma

One should practice detoxification therapies or panchakarma under the guidance of an Ayurvedic expert to remove the accumulated toxins from the body. These therapies strengthen the immune system and also limit the susceptibility to allergies and anaphylaxis. 

6. Managing Stress

It is important to include relaxing techniques like yoga, pranayama, and meditation to calm the brain. These relaxation methods improve conditions like stress, anxiety, and triggers which promote doshas imbalance and in turn, make the individual more prone to allergies. 

7. Healthy and Balanced Lifestyle

There are multiple benefits of following a proper daily routine or dincharya and seasonal routine or ritucharya as guided in the Ayurvedic texts. The proper routine includes waking up early in the morning, indulging in calming methods like self-massage, and sleeping for adequate hours to improve physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. By following a balanced lifestyle the exposure to potential allergens can be largely reduced and hence prevent the attack of anaphylaxis. 

8. Avoiding Exposure to Allergens

Anaphylaxis preventive measures include identification and avoidance of potential allergens that can trigger the allergic response and can lead to anaphylaxis. Therefore, it is advantageous to identify and avoid exposure of some allergens like some food items, environmental allergens like pollen grains, dust or molds or other substances like pet dander that can exaggerate the allergies. 

9. Nasya Therapy or Nasal Oleation Therapy

Nasya therapy is another effective ayurvedic therapy that involves the application of medicated oils inside the nostrils. These medicines maintain nasal health and also help to keep the respiratory system healthy. This therapy also helps to trap harmful and potential allergens that can cause symptoms such as nasal congestion and runny nose due to allergies. Therefore, nasya karma helps to restore health by reducing allergies and life-threatening anaphylaxis.

10. Following Daily and Seasonal Routine

Ayurveda stresses following a proper daily routine and seasonal routine based on the dosha dominance. These regimes assist in enhancing health outcomes and also reduce the susceptibility of allergies and recurrent infections.
