In routine practice, I saw number of patients who consume antibiotics and such high dose medication for their very small problems / diseases. And sad part is that improper consumption of antibiotic and such medication causes “resistance” to medicines. It will decrease your immunity power. Next time, when you will take same medication, it will not show proper effects on the diseases. And diseases can be on worst stage in your body. Pneumonia, Enteric Fever, Hay fever,AIDS and so many diseases / and their Medicines developed resistance to some medication.
Why this problem arises??
It’s a fault of a person who generally do self medication without consultation of the doctor. Its due to shop keeper / Pharmacist who gave the medication without any knowledge of medicines and without prescription of the doctor. Its due to lack of knowledge of both doctor and Patients.
So beware, and please- ALWAYS AVOID SELF MEDICATION.
Ayurveda‘s first intention is to maintain health. And Ayurveda science mentioned some medication and Lifestyle to increase your immunity power. Ayurveda‘s old texts mention the factors that increase the strength –
“बलवत् पुरुषे देशे जन्म, बलवत् काले च I
सुखश्च काल योग: बीज क्षेत्रगुणसंपन्नच I
आहर संपन्नच I सात्म्य संपन्नच I शरीर संपन्नच I
स्वभाव संसिद्धिश्च यौवनं च कर्म, संहर्षस्च इति I “
Along with that Ayurveda mentioned proper lifestyle management under label of Dincharya, Rututcharya and Sad-vrutta. A Panchkarma procedure also helps to increase immunity power. So with the help of Ayurveda science we can avoid such Resistance problems.
But we must understand the side effects and long term worst effects of Antibiotics and such medications. We must use such medication in discipline manner.
We have to combat antimicrobial resistance, If we don’t take action today, There will be no cure tomorrow.
