Ayurvedic Treatment of CNS (Central Nervous System) Lymphoma

Lymphoma is a disease in which malignant cells form in the lymph system. Lymphocytes which are carried in the lymph travel in and out of the central nervous system (CNS). Primary CNS lymphoma can start in the brain, spinal cord or meninges (the layers that form the outer covering of the brain). As eye is so close to the brain, primary CNS lymphoma can also start in the eye. They constitute 2% of primary brain tumors.

HOW DOES LYMPHOMA AFFECT CNS?

A lymphoma that starts in the CNS is known as primary CNS lymphoma.

Lymphoma can:

  • Develop within the brain either as one or more lumps (masses). These are usually seen in primary CNS lymphoma or spread within the meninges (known as diffuse lymphoma).
  • Involve the eye known as intraocular lymphoma which can develop on its own (primary intraocular lymphoma) or as a part of a lymphoma affecting other parts of the CNS.
  • Develop in the spinal cord or press on the spinal cord from outside which is not so common.
  • Spread from a lymphoma elsewhere in the body known as secondary CNS lymphoma.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CNS LYMPHOMA?

The symptoms of CNS lymphoma depend on the location of the tumor.

Symptoms include:

  • Diplopia
  • Vertigo
  • Dysphagia
  • Progressive dementia
  • Nausea
  • Mental alertness or confusion
  • Blurry vision
  • Patients with lymphoma involving spinal cord or spinal fluid may experience leg pain, back pain or incontinence.

After CNS lymphoma is diagnosed, a series of tests are done to determine whether the cancer has spread. Some tests are:

  • PET scan
  • CT scan
  • Slit-lamp eye exam
  • Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy

TREATMENT

According to modern medicine, there is no standard treatment for CNS lymphoma. Treatment include high dose of methotrexate based combinations, chemotherapy, radiation treatment but radiation treatment can be excessively neurotoxic for patients above 60 years. According to modern treatment, treatment of CNS lymphoma is most effective when the tumor has not spread outside the cerebrum and the patient is under age 60 and does not have AIDS or other diseases that weaken the immune system.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Seronegative spondyloarthropathy (Ankylosing spondylitis)

ABOUT SERONEGATIVE SPONDYLOARTHOPATHY

Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy -- commonly referred to as Spondyloarthritis (SpA) -- is the term used for a heterogeneous group of chronic, long-term 'joint diseases' of the vertebral column. In other words, the diseases grouped under Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy are arthritides within the rheumatic diseases.

Specifically, the diseases which comprise the Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy group of 'joint diseases' include:

  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Reactive arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Juvenile spondyloarthropathy (occurring in children)
  • Enteropathic arthritis (joint problems associated with inflammatory bowel disease), and
  • Undifferentiated spondyloarthropathy.

These diseases can occur in adults as well as children. Though the symptoms and outcomes of the different diseases in the Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy group are different, they have some similarities. The main similarities in all these diseases are:

  • They generally involve the sacroiliac joint --- that is, the attachments between the lower back and the pelvis
  • They affect entheses --- the joint areas which mark the attachment of the ligaments and tendons to the bone (that is, at the hip, knee, or foot).

However, it is important to note that Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy diseases (commonly called Spondyloarthropathies) are different from rheumatoid arthritis, lupus or other forms of rheumatic disease. Spondyloarthropathies are negative for rheumatoid factor.

The diseases in the Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy group involve the axial skeleton and have a negative serostatus. Although the exact cause of these diseases is not known, their occurrence is mostly linked to the presence of a particular gene, HLA-B27.

COMMON CHARACTERISTICS OF SPONDYLOARTHROPATHIES

There are some characteristics which are common to Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy group of diseases. These common characteristics include:

  • Relation to the HLA-B27 gene
  • Rheumatoid factor is not present (Seronegative)
  • Oligoarthritis, usually with asymmetrical presentation
  • Inflammation of the entheses (Enthesitis)
  • Occurrence of familial aggregation
  • Inflammatory axial arthritis, commonly spondylitis and sacroiliitis
  • Extra-articular features, like involvement of eyes, skin, genitourinary tract, and aortic regurgitation
  • Likelihood of overlap between the several causative conditions.

SYMPTOMS OF SERONEGATIVE SPONDYLOARTHOPATHY

The typical signs and indications of the diseases in the Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy group are different. Nonetheless, some of the common indications of these diseases are:

  • Pain in the joints
  • Fatigue
  • Inflammatory back pain
  • Stiffness of the spine, particularly in the morning
  • Arthritis
  • Peripheral enthesitis
  • Constitutional and organ-specific extra-articular manifestations.

TREATMENT OF SERONEGATIVE SPONDYLOARTHOPATHY

Most of the cases of Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy are mild and may remain undiagnosed for a long time, with the sufferers usually having no difficulty in performing their day-to-day tasks.

As such, the treatment of these diseases mainly revolves around reducing the pain and stiffness in joints. For this, doctors generally lay a lot of stress on good posture and on prevention of stiffness and deformity by stretching of the affected areas.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Klebsiella Species Bacteria -- UTI

ABOUT KLEBSIELLA UTI

Klebsiella UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) is one of the several infections which are caused by a 'superbug' called Klebsiella pneumoniae bacterium. A Urinary Tract Infection refers to any infection of the urethra, bladder or kidneys.

Klebsiella UTI and other Klebsiella infections are characteristically 'nosocomial' infections, which are contracted in a hospital or a healthcare facility. The risk of contracting Klebsiella infections is high for people have a weakened immune system, either from being sick or from undergoing medical interventions due to a health issue. As such, some of the common factors which can trigger the development of Klebsiella infections are mechanical ventilators, indwelling tubes for draining urine, open wounds, and burns.

Besides Urinary Tract Infections, some of the other diseases which are caused by the Klebsiella pneumoniae bacterium include:

  • Bloodstream infections
  • Wound infections
  • Surgical site infections
  • Community-acquired Pneumonia
  • Meningitis

In addition, some of the other clinical syndromes associated with Klebsiella pneumoniae bacterium are: rhinoscleroma and ozena, colonization, and chronic genital ulcerative disease.

So far as Klebsiella UTI is concerned, these urinary tract infections caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae -- which is not an airborne bacterium -- cannot be clinically differentiated from other UTIs which are caused by other common organisms.

According to Ayurveda, Klebsiella UTI and other Urinary tract infections are linked to the imbalance of 'Pitta' dosha.

HOW KLEBSIELLA INFECTIONS SPREAD

The situations which can trigger the spread of Klebsiella UTI and other Klebsiella infections -- or increase the risk of these infections -- are:

  • Hospitalization (particularly admission to an Intensive Care Unit)
  • Use of contaminated medical equipment
  • Use of contaminated intravenous catheters/urinary catheters
  • Use of antibiotics over a long period of time
  • Inadequate infection control practices
  • Major surgery or severe illness
  • Immunocompromised health conditions (for e.g. diabetes, alcoholism)
  • Antimicrobial therapy
  • Direct person-to-person contact (for e.g. when a wound is touched by someone with contaminated hands).

Overall, Klebsiella infections usually spread when Klebsiella pneumoniae bacterium gains access to a person's body either by direct inoculation via breached epithelial surfaces or following aspiration of oropharyngeal organisms.

SYMPTOMS OF KLEBSIELLA INFECTIONS

The symptoms of Klebsiella UTI and some of the other Klebsiella infections mainly depend on the infection site; and can, hence, differ from one individual to another. However, it is significant to note that the symptoms of Klebsiella infections are similar to the symptoms of the same diseases which are caused by other microbes.

The symptoms of Klebsiella UTI are:

  • Frequent urination
  • Burning sensation during urination
  • Strong smell in urine
  • Urine of red or light pink colour
  • Colicky abdominal pain
  • Low back pain
  • Vomiting
  • Lethargy.

Some of the common symptoms of other Klebsiella infections are:

  • High fever
  • Chills
  • Rash
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Breathing problems/Shortness of breath
  • Cough (with bloody, yellow, or green mucous)
  • Light-headedness
  • Confusion
  • Changes in mental state.

TREATMENT OF KLEBSIELLA UTI

Treatment for Klebsiella UTI can vary, because it is based on the severity of the infection and the medication used. Appropriate antimicrobial treatment of Klebsiella UTI is started only after the laboratory identification of a substantial number of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacterium, in order to confirm that the symptoms of the infection are linked to the bacteria rather than to other organisms/factors.

For effective management of the symptoms of Klebsiella UTI, renowned Ayurvedic experts at Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company have prepared some beneficial herbal formulations. To prepare these formulations, 100% pure and natural best-quality herbs are used, in accordance with the principles of Ayurveda.
