Ayurvedic Treatment for Pangastritis - Symptoms, Causes, Home Remedies, Diet & Lifestyle

Pangastritis is defined as the inflammation of entire lining of the stomach. The inflammation of gastritis is most often seen as the result of infection with the same bacterium that causes stomach ulcers. Pangastritis can occur suddenly known as acute gastritis or appear slowly over time known as chronic gastritis.

When we eat food, it goes down through the food pipe and it is stored in stomach for about 1.5-2 hours. In the stomach, food undergoes disintegration into small particles. HCl (Hydrochloric Acid) kills the micro-organisms present in the food. The small portion of the food is absorbed. After 1.5-2 hours, the food is pushed down to intestine for further digestion.

If the inner lining of the stomach is irritated or damaged or inflamed, this condition is known as gastritis. The stomach lining can become inflamed due to certain reasons like heavy alcohol consumption, eating spicy and junk food, stress etc.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PANGASTRITIS?

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Burning ache or pain in the upper abdomen
  • Feeling of fullness in the upper abdomen after eating.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF PANGASTRITIS?

  • In erosive gastritis drugs, alcohol, acute stress and infection can precipitate the condition.
  • In most non-erosive gastritis conditions, H.pylori often found in people who suffer from no significant symptoms of gastritis. The symptoms appear when the gut becomes a conducive environment for H.pylori to colonise. According to Ayurvedic concept, the inbuild of toxins and impurities, blockage of proper circulation in the gut creates ground for mucosal irritation from both the toxins and H.pylori growth.

According to Ayurveda, root causes of Pangastritis are poor eating habits, taking incompatible food, intake of spicy and fried foods. Due to these foods, food is not digested properly and it provokes the excess of acidic secretion and thus results in gastric irritation.

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT FOR PANGASTRITIS

According to Ayurveda, this disease is of Pitta origin so all measures are undertaken to pacify Pitta, therefore medicament should subside the irritation. After once complete remission of the complaints, elixirs are prescribed so as to check the re-manifestation of the similar conditions in coming days.

According to Ayurveda, line of treatment for pangastritis involves the following steps:

  • Correction of digestive enzymes
  • Healing of the inflamed stomach lining (gastric mucosa)
  • Correction of secretion of gastric juices
  • Achieving overall balanced function of stomach.

SOME HOME REMEDIES FOR PANGASTRITIS ARE

  1. Regular chewing of half a teaspoon of fennel seeds after food helps in relieving burning sensation in the stomach.
  2. Half glass buttermilk added with a pinch of asafoetida, half teaspoon of fenugreek seeds can be taken with food.
  3. Crush cumin seeds into a fine powder. Add half a teaspoon of cumin seeds to 1 litre of water and boil the water for 2 minutes and then filter it. Drink this water regularly in place of normal water. But, prepare fresh water daily. This is a natural remedy for pangastritis.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Takayasu Arteritis - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

Takayasu Arteritis (TA) is a disease which causes the inflammation of the large arteries in the body. This inflammatory disease is known by some other names also, including 'Pulseless disease,' 'Aortic arch syndrome,' and 'Nonspecific aortoarteritis.'

In Takayasu Arteritis, the arteries which become inflamed are: the 'aorta', which is the main artery that supplies blood from the heart to different parts of the body; and the 'pulmonary artery', which sends blood to the lungs.

Other than the aorta and the pulmonary artery which become inflamed in Takayasu Arteritis, some of the other important arteries branching out from the aorta may also be affected by the disease. These arteries include the 'subclavian' arteries which supply blood to the arms, the 'renal' arteries which supply blood to the kidneys, the 'coronary' arteries in the heart, and the 'carotid' arteries in the brain and the head.

Thus, Takayasu Arteritis can be described as a rare type of 'vasculitis disease', that is, a group of disorders which result in the inflammation of blood vessels. The blood vessels which become inflamed in Takayasu Arteritis in particular are the aorta and its main branches. Over a period of time, the inflammation in the walls of the arteries leads to the scarring, thickening, and narrowing scarring of the arteries.

Takayasu Arteritis is considered to be an autoimmune condition, in which the immune system of the affected individuals' body attacks their own arteries by mistake. This disease may also get triggered by a virus or some other kind of infection; and can lead to Stenosis (blockages or narrowed arteries) or Aneurysms (abnormal dilation of arteries).

SYMPTOMS OF TAKAYASU ARTERITIS

Takayasu Arteritis mostly affects girls and women aged between 10 and 40 years. Initially, some of the signs and symptoms which potentially hint at the occurrence of the disease are fatigue, mild fever, body aches and pains, and unintended weight loss.

However, when inflammation causes the narrowing of arteries in affected individuals over time, and less blood, oxygen and nutrients reach their organs and tissues, some of the symptoms of the disease may include:

  • Weakness or pain in the limbs
  • Shortness of breath
  • Memory problems
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness, light-headedness, or fainting
  • High blood pressure
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty in thinking clearly
  • Visual changes
  • Difference in blood pressure between the arms
  • Decreased pulse
  • Anaemia (very low count of red blood cells).

HERBAL REMEDIES FOR MANAGING TAKAYASU ARTERITIS

There is presently no cure for Takayasu Arteritis. Hence, the line of treatment for the patients suffering from this disease basically involves the use of medications for controlling the condition by providing relief from its symptoms. Some patients may require long-term treatment for the disease in order to prevent any possible recurrence of the inflammation of the blood vessels.

Overall, the effective management of Takayasu Arteritis is largely dependent on the early detection of the disease, and easing its symptoms. Towards that end, some excellent herbal formulations offered by Plant Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company can be extremely effective. These formulations are prepared from 100% pure and natural herbs, under the supervision of renowned Ayurveda practitioners.
