Ayurvedic Treatment for Avascular Necrosis (AVN) - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

AVASCULAR NECROSIS (AVN): OVERVIEW

Avascular Necrosis (AVN) is a condition which is typically marked by the death of bone tissue because of lack of blood supply to it. This condition is known by some other names also, including Aseptic Necrosis, Ischemic Bone Necrosis, or Osteonecrosis.

Avascular Necrosis occurs due to loss of blood supply to the bone, thereby causing the bone to die. Since bones are living tissues which need blood, any interruption to the blood supply to the bones can lead to bone/joint trauma or severe bone damage. Delays in treating the condition can even result in the collapsing of the bone.

Avascular Necrosis (AVN)

Avascular Necrosis commonly affects people aged between 30 and 60 years. The most common site of the occurrence of this condition is the hip. Besides the hip, the condition can also affect the knees, the ankles, and the shoulders. In some people, Avascular Necrosis may develop bilaterally (that is, on both sides), like in both the hips or in both the knees.

Avascular Necrosis causes excruciating pain to the sufferers as it progresses, although it does not have any typical symptoms in its early stages.

The symptoms of the condition first start becoming obvious when the sufferers start experiencing pain while putting pressure on the affected bone. Gradually, over a period of a few months, the pain becomes more constant; and the progression of the condition may eventually cause the affected bone and the nearby joint to collapse. This may increase the severity of the pain, making it difficult for the sufferers to use the affected joint.

CAUSES OF AVASCULAR NECROSIS

Some of the common reasons for the occurrence of Avascular Necrosis are: long-term use of steroids or inflammation-fighting drugs, drinking alcohol in excess, dislocation/fracture of the thigh bone, fatty deposits in blood vessels, inflammation, blood clots, and damage to the arteries. Any kind of injury -- for example, a dislocated joint -- might cause damage to the surrounding blood vessels.

Along with the above-mentioned causes of Avascular Necrosis, the condition can also get triggered as a result of certain health disorders or some other factors, which may include:

  • Gaucher’s disease
  • HIV infection
  • Pancreatitis (inflammation of the Pancreas)
  • Radiation therapy
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Decompression sickness.

TREATMENT OF AVASCULAR NECROSIS (AVN)

People suffering from Avascular Necrosis may require treatment when the affected joint starts paining when they put weight on it or when they lie down. The common treatments of the condition generally include the use of medications, physiotherapy, or surgery.

For managing Avascular Necrosis in a natural manner, renowned herbal manufacturing company Planet Ayurveda offers some excellent herbal products which are prepared under the guidance of Ayurveda experts. These herbal products include:

Ayurvedic Treatment for Advanced Chronic Liver Disease (ACLD) - Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

ADVANCED CHRONIC LIVER DISEASE (ACLD)

advanced chronic liver disease, ACLD

In today's world, over-exposure to toxins such as alcohol, use of recreational drugs lead to the damage to the liver cells.

Advanced Chronic Liver Disease (ACLD) is defined as a persistent inflammatory condition of the liver where biochemical and histopathological abnormalities are present over a long period of time. Patients suffering from chronic liver disease may suffer from specific complications of cirrhosis. The progressive scarring of the tissue in the liver leads to the altered hepatic flow and increased resistance to the portal blood flow causing portal hypertension and the loss of hepatic function.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF ADVANCED CHRONIC LIVER DISEASE (ACLD)?

The two major causes of chronic liver disease are obesity and heavy alcohol consumption.

Other causes of Chronic Liver Disease are:

  • Fatty liver
  • Auto-immune hepatitis
  • Primary biliary cirrhosis
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Alcohol related liver disease
  • Wilson’s disease

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC LIVER DISEASE?

The most common symptom of chronic liver disease is jaundice, yellowing of the skin as well as eyes.

Other symptoms are:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Itchy skin
  • Dark urine
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Weakness and muscle loss
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Abdominal pain as well as swelling
  • Spider-like veins
  • Pale, bloody and tar-coloured stool.

Diagnosis

Serologic as well as blood tests comprise the initial evaluation. Certain liver function tests can help in diagnosing for genetic conditions or viral hepatitis. Liver biopsy is also recommended where a long needle is inserted into the skin to remove a tissue sample of the liver for further study.

Treatment

According to modern medicine, if the signs and symptoms of chronic liver disease are found in the early stages, the modern treatment can only minimise the liver damage. Long term medicines are prescribed that do not serve as a cure.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Atrial fibrillation - Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

ATRIAL FIBRILLATION: OVERVIEW

Atrial fibrillation is a heart condition which is commonly characterized by an irregular or fluttering heartbeat (arrhythmia). The condition typically leads to a poor flow of blood in the body.

Atrial fibrillation can cause formation of blood clots in the heart, due to poor blood flow. The blood clots formed in the heart can potentially move to other organs of the body, thereby resulting in blockages in the flow of blood (ischemia). Besides leading to formation of blood clots, Atrial fibrillation can also be a causative factor behind some other heart-linked complications, such as heart failure or stroke.

atrial fibrillation

In some people affected by Atrial fibrillation, episodes of quivering or racing heart rate may occur and subside occasionally; while in other people, heartbeat irregularities may develop as a persistent, recurring condition which does not go away, and may require medical treatment.

Based on how occasionally Atrial fibrillation occurs and how long it persists, this condition can be classified into four categories --- Occasional, Persistent, Long-standing persistent, and Permanent.

The risk of occurrence of Atrial fibrillation apparently increases with age --- that is, the risk of the condition gets higher as a person becomes older in age.

ATRIAL FIBRILLATION: CAUSES

The most common cause behind the occurrence of Atrial fibrillation is heart-related abnormalities or damage to the structure of the heart. In addition to this, some of the other common causes of Atrial fibrillation are:

  • Heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart-valve abnormality
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart surgery in the past
  • Congenital heart defects (abnormalities present at birth)
  • Overactivity of the thyroid gland
  • Metabolic imbalances
  • Lung disorders
  • Sleep apnea
  • Viral infections
  • Stress resulting from certain illnesses -- like pneumonia -- or surgery.

There are some factors which can put an individual at a potential risk of developing Atrial fibrillation. These factors include: Heart disease, high blood pressure, consumption of alcohol, obesity, family history of the condition, and certain chronic disorders like chronic kidney disease, lung disease, thyroid disorders, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

ATRIAL FIBRILLATION: SYMPTOMS

An irregular or quivering heartbeat and pain/pressure in the chest are the most common indications of the occurrence of Atrial fibrillation. Along with these signs, there are also some other symptoms of this condition, including:

  • Palpitations (sensations of racing heartbeat or uncomfortable throbbing in the chest)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Mental confusion
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Unconsciousness
  • Sweating
  • Chest pain
  • Light-headedness.

Some people suffering from Atrial fibrillation may not have any overt symptoms of the condition; and, in some cases, certain symptoms like chest pain or shortness of breath may be similar to the symptoms of a heart attack.

ATRIAL FIBRILLATION: TREATMENT

The treatment of Atrial fibrillation generally include drugs/medications, electrical shock (cardio version), pacemakers, and minimally invasive surgery (ablation). By suggesting the use of medications and other interventions to the patients suffering from Atrial fibrillation, doctors basically try to rework the electrical system of the heart. Though Atrial fibrillation is usually not a life-threatening by itself, it is a serious medical problem which may sometimes need emergency treatment.

Atrial fibrillation can be treated naturally with the help of herbal medicines. Some extremely effective herbal products from Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company can be especially beneficial in managing Atrial fibrillation in a safe and natural manner. These products are completely vegetarian formulations -- prepared from 100% pure herbs -- which include:

Ayurvedic Treatment for Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA) - Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

WHAT IS SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA?

Spinocerebellar Ataxia, SCA

Spinocerebellar Ataxia is a neurodegenerative disorder which slowly leads to progressive clumsiness. There are nearly more than 30 different types of this disorder. Each one of them is due to a different genetic mutation. There are still many other such mutations which have still not been discovered. This disease is rare and has many variations. Among all, Spinocerebellar Ataxia is the most common genetic disease.

CAUSES OF SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA

Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA) is mainly caused due to genetic mutation.

The genetic mutation which leads to this disorder is also known as" expansion mutations". Expansion mutation leads to formation of nucleotides of chromosome which are repeated. This formation mostly affects the patients suffering with Spinocerebellar ataxia and is repeated. This disorder is autosomal dominant and is an inherited disease condition. It means that chances are that if father or mother acquires it, then it is likely to be passed onto the child.

SYMPTOMS OF SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA

  • Atrophy of the cerebellum.
  • Unsteady motion due to disco-ordination of muscles.
  • Speech Abnormality
  • Food Regurgitation in Mouth
  • Progressive disco-ordination of gait
  • Poor coordination of hands, speech, and eye control.
  • Frequent hand motions resulting in intentional tremor in affected individuals.

DIAGNOSIS

Normally below methods are used for diagnosing the disorder.

  • MRI scan: It helps in revealing atrophy of body’s cerebellum and brainstem.
  • EEG: It is effective in diagnosing features of epilepsy.
  • EMG: This method helps to diagnose continuous motor unit activity.
  • Genetic testing is done. In case if it comes out to be positive it indicates abnormality in the chromosome resulting in abnormal metabolism.

TREATMENT IN SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA

As such till now there is no cure for Spinocerebellar Ataxia.

1. One may make use of Cane or Walker in Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Use of Cane or Walker for Ambulation- Patient may use cane or walker to walk if the patient has a tendency to fall during walking.

2. Physical Therapy in Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Patient is recommended here to go for physical therapy treatment in order to train some coordinating muscles.

3. Muscle Relaxants in Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Sometimes because of prolonged muscle contraction it can lead to spastic condition and severe pain. In such case the patient is often advised to the treatment done with muscle relaxants like Baclofen. This is done in order to avoid spastic contraction or relax the muscles, which is contracting and resulting in pain.

4. Speech Therapy recommended for patients suffering with Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Patient having the problem of speech deformity can be treated by a speech therapist to improve and enhance the use of muscles so that the sound of the words work and are audible in correct phonic.

5. Occupational Therapy in Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Patient is generally advised with occupational therapy so that he may learn to alter few abnormal motor functions.

Life Expectancy In case of Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Life expectancy according to a research is believed to be between 19 to 25 years.

AYURVEDIC VIEW OF ATAXIA

Ataxia is considered as a Beej dosha disease. Due to decreased pranayatna (action potential), less ATP production (urga karma) is there. This leads to decreased cellular metabolism (known as bala in ayurveda), due to which ama drvya is produced at the cellular levels. This ama leads to obstruction and iron alternation reacts with oxygen to produce free radicals (known as ama visha) and destroys cellular processes.

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT OF ATAXIA BY PLANET AYURVEDA

Herbal Remedies for Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA)

1. Ashwagandha Capsules

Ayurvedic Treatment for Schizophrenia - Types, Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

SCHIZOPHRENIA

It is a disorder that develops slowly and the individual at initial stage does not realize that he is suffering from this problem, but in certain cases this problem can develop quickly. It is a mental disorder that is characterized with delusions, hallucinations and some other cognitive difficulties. This problem is considered as a mental illness that can also be the result of a monotonous life in which people keep working like machines with a lot of stress at work in their mind which largely affects their behavioral patterns.

LET'S DISCUSS THE SYMPTOMS OF SCHIZOPHRENIA

  • Delusion
  • Thought Disorder
  • Social Withdrawal
  • Poor Expressions of Emotion
  • Hallucination
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Unawareness of Illness
  • Cognitive Difficulties

There are many more other symptoms that depend on the intensity of this disease. They can be negative, positive, cognitive or emotional symptoms.

LET'S DISCUSS ABOUT THE CAUSES OF THIS PROBLEM

There are various factors that can cause this particular problem. Genetic factor is also considered one of the main reasons. Besides it, there are many other reasons that are listed below.

  • Chemical imbalance in brain
  • Environmental factor
  • Family relationships
  • Drugs
  • Genetic inheritance

TREATMENT

People suffering with this problem have to deal with it for life time. There are three main ways used by doctors to treat the symptoms:

  • Psychological counselling
  • Self-help resources
  • Certain medications(anti-psychosis drugs)

There are some medications that are most commonly used:

  • Risperidone (Risperdal) - less sedating than other atypical antipsychotics. There are side effects like Weight gain and diabetes, but chances of occurrence are quite less.
  • Olanzapine (Zyprexa) – this medication is helpful in dealing with negative symptoms of schizophrenia. But this can cause side effects that can lead to serious weight gain and the development of diabetes.
  • Quetiapine (Seroquel) –this is also associated with the same risk of gaining weight and diabetes.
  • Ziprasidone (Geodon) –this medication is also used in the treatment of this problem. Though the risk of weight gain and diabetes is lower than other atypical antipsychotics. However, it might contribute to cardiac arrhythmia.
  • Clozapine (Clozaril) –this medication is effective for patients who have been resistant to treatment. It helps in preventing suicidal behaviors in patients with schizophrenia. The risk of weight gain and diabetes is significant.
  • Haloperidol - an antipsychotic used to treat schizophrenia. It has a long-lasting effect (weeks).

As we know that there is no permanent solution to this mental disorder. Only certain medications can help in curing the symptoms of this particular problem.
