Myelofibrosis Treatment in Ayurveda

There is a 'can' in cancer because we can beat it! Myelofibrosis or osteomyelofibrosis is a type of bone marrow cancer. It is basically a group of rare cancers that affects the bone marrow. In this type the marrow is substituted with a scar tissue which hampers the process of forming healthy blood cells. It can be categorized as chronic leukemia. It is currently classified as a myeloproliferative neoplasm, in which the proliferation of an abnormal clone of hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow and other sites results in fibrosis, or the replacement of the marrow with scar tissue. Cancer starts affecting the immune system. Though, the immune system helps to fight cancer but eventually cancer weakens the immune system.

AYURVEDIC VIEW POINT ON MYELOFIBROSIS

Cancer cells are always present in the body. Ayurveda, has a unique vision concerning the mechanism that prevents the growth of cancer cells in the human body. Ayurveda is based on three doshas which are Vata, pitta and Kapha. These three doshas or energies are known to maintain equilibrium in the human physiology. According to Ayurveda the capacity to respond to stress factors, physical and mental, are related to the inherent strength of the individual. Immunity is the result of both inherent strength (Bala), proper metabolism that creates an active distilled cellular nutrient extract (Ojas) that supports all organic functions and enzyme activity. Immunity represents both the totality and interrelationship of these three Ayurvedic concepts.

Going by the Ayurvedic point of view immune response is dependent on twenty-one factors three doshas, two forms of Bala, two forms of Ojas, thirteen groups of Agni and Ama. From this we can assume that the possible number of interactions for these twenty-one factors is very large. Thus, immunity in Ayurveda is a complex response of the organism involving a number of systems and functions supported by inherent factors and developing factors. It also causes vitiation of Rakta (blood) dhatu, asthi (bone) dhatu and Majja (bone marrow) dhatu.

Diet in Psoriasis - Foods to be Avoided and Recommended

Psoriasis is a chronic, noncontagious inflammatory skin condition characterized by development of plaques of thickened, scaling skin and dry flakes of skin scales result from the excessively quick multiplication of skin cells. Psoriasis is just an irritating skin condition, which may further lead to psoriatic arthritis, an inflammation of the joints. Psoriasis is most frequently occurring on the elbows, legs, scalp, lower back, face, palms and soles of the feet. However, it can also occur in other areas as on fingernails, toenails, genitals and inside the mouth.

It is usually stimulated by environmental factors like infections and stress.

MOST COMMON SYMPTOMS THAT APPEAR ARE

  • Red colored Plaques on skin, sometimes covered with a crust of scales that tend to be silver or white
  • Sensitive, itchy and painful skin lesions.
  • Dandruff on the scalp.
  • Cracked, discolored skin that easily bleeds and bruises.
  • Discoloration in the finger and toenails or growth of toenail fungus.
  • Nails that detach from the nail beds and can be painful or bloody.

Many people with psoriasis also suffer from emotional problems due to feeling embarrassed and hopeless about their skin.

AYURVEDIC VIEW

As explained by Ayurveda, Psoriasis happens due to imbalance of two doshas - Vata and Kapha, which causes accumulation of toxins. These toxins get accumulated in deep tissues like rasa (nutrient plasma), rakta (blood), mansa (muscles), and lasika (lymphatic). These toxins leads to impurity in deeper tissues, leading to Psoriasis.

DIET

Diet has been considered to be the etiology and pathogenesis of psoriasis. So Psoriatic sufferers have been reported with success with changes in their diet. Have a diet low in fats and sweets. Eat unlimited amounts of alkaline diet, high in fruits and vegetables, lean meats or other proteins like beans and legumes and while on this diet go with regular exercise as being overweight can worse the psoriasis condition and keep your medication from working like it should.

Legumes such as beans and lentils as well as carrots are good source of antioxidants and fiber, so include them in your die for better results.

Strictly avoid too much of salty, sour or acidic foods and too much alcohol can exaggerate psoriasis, too. Avoid intake of spicy food and consume food that is easily digestible.

Here are foods that are to be consumed or avoided may help those with the skin disorder.
