ALA in SVA- from science to sutra

 Vaidya Mishra: “As and when the need arises, from time to time, I adopt safe and effective nutritional substances that have been researched and confirmed by modern science. For example, I have added the transdermal use of Magnesium, or Vit D3 to our SVA protocols and products. These things help our SVA followers and seekers of optimal health, as well as all the SVA experts and physicians helping out patients at large.   

A year ago i heard about Alpha Lipoic Acid from a friend in the medical profession successfully using it to treat patients with neuropathy. Af

ter researching it thoroughly I decided to add it to our SVA protocols for many reasons. In general, I use the ayurvedic plants Sensitive Plant and Lakcha to nourish nerves, but there is not a specific ingredient that could help increase the supply of blood to the nerves. ALA, used in conjunction to the ayurvedic herbs have shown to magnify and optimize the results.

Most of the formulas I have made for addressing the health of the micro

and macro channels are thermogenic, they help increase and support circulation of detox and other pathways. However, they can be heating and have to be used in a balanced manner.  So it can be challenging, for myself as well as all the other SVA experts and practitioners, to increase the blood supply to the different areas of the body when there is amavisha and garavisha accumulation. You will be familiar that in these situations, the body does not tolerate heating products or any thermogenic herbs or formulas. This is because the body is already acidic and hot and the channels or nerves and bone tissue are affected by the heating acidic toxicity. Alpha Lipoc Acid supports the supply of blood to those areas without further warming things up.

 

In light of these 2 primary factors, I adopted Alpha Lipoic Acid in the SVA protocols. I made capsules with ALA by adding ayurvedic coral calcium (praval pisti) to further help alkalize things, and support the bone and nerves. The ALA massage oil for whole body massage supports the whole molecular level of the body as ALA is both water and lipid soluble. The ALA transdermal cream also with lipid shea butter can be used to be applied on specific areas like on the joints, to support detox in the fat tissue that may be affecting and inflaming the joints. The water based ALA cream I formulated in order to supply the water soluble efficiency when applying on sensitive areas, for example around the eyes or on the temples to increase blood supply to these areas.
In general, my SVA teaching and protocols proceed from sutra to science, as I take Ayurveda as the basis from which healing emanates. However, modern science also has much to offer, as consciousness of health and the body grows, and scientific tools are used to support our physiologies in preventative ways. The discovery of ALA is one of those instances. And that is why, I have adopted it in our ayurvedic SVA protocols, going from science to sutra, in this case! Thank you!”
