Ayurvedic Treatment for Nephrocalcinosis - Stages, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

NEPHROCALCINOSIS

The deposition of calcium in the kidney that leads to improper functioning of the kidney causes Nephrocalcinosis. This mainly occurs due to excess excretion of calcium by the kidney, renal tubular acidosis and medullary sponge kidney.

  • Microscopic nephrocalcinosis: obtained with the help of a tissue sample from a biopsy. This occurs when deposits are visible by light microscope but again these cannot be diagnosed with the help of X-ray.
  • Macroscopic nephrocalcinosis: it is the higher level stage and occurs when calcification can be seen through X-ray imagaing.

  • Reduced and cloudy urine
  • Increased urine
  • Fluid retention in body part

Herbal Remedies for Fish Odour Syndrome (Trimethylaminuria) - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment

Fish Odour Syndrome (Trimethylaminuria) is a metabolic disorder that occurs when the body of a person is unable to break down trimethylaminuria which is a nitrogen containing compound. The compound trimethylaminuria is produced by the intestines and has a fishy odour. It is produced when certain types of food such as eggs, legumes, fish etc. are eaten.

As a result, trimethylamine starts accumulating in the body and is released in the sweat, reproductive fluids like vaginal fluids, urine and breath which leads to its characteristic odour. This unpleasant odour leads to social and psychological problems in individuals. This condition is more commonly found in women.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF FISH ODOUR SYNDROME?

  • In some people, fish odour syndrome occurs in people who do not have changes in both copies of FMO3 gene. In such cases, trimethylaminuria may be caused by the high levels of trimethylaminuria due to the presence of more trimethylamine producing bacteria in the gut.
  • Due to a diet rich in foods that create trimethylamine as they are metabolised.
  • Heredity: It is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. If the parents of a child have trimethylaminuria, then children will be carriers of the faulty gene.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF FISH ODOUR SYNDROME?

The symptoms of fish odour syndrome can sometimes be seen in premature infants as well as in some women at the time of menstruation.

It is characterised by a fishy odour that occurs due to the excess release of trimethylamine in the patient’s sweat, urine, breath.

Some people have constant strong odour while most have a moderate odour that can vary.

In women, the odour may be severe just before or during menstruation.

Factors such as sweating, excessive exercise, stress may also worsen the odour.

DIAGNOSIS

A urine test and genetic testing can be done to confirm the diagnosis.

TREATMENT

According to modern medicine, there is no cure for fish odour syndrome but there are certain ways to reduce the symptoms like avoiding certain foods that contain trimethylamine and by decreasing the dosage of anti-biotics.

Modern treatment includes certain dietary restrictions, use of certain lotions and soaps to remove the secreted trimethylamine on the skin and the use of activated charcoal and copper chlorophyllin and riboflavin supplements.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Harlequin Syndrome - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

The body consists of central nervous system which control functions such as sweating, skin flushing, and response of pupil to stimuli. Harlequin syndrome usually occurs due some effects on the automic nervous system which causes hindrance in the performance of various functions performed by central nervous system and further leads to asymmetric sweating and flushing of skin on some parts of the body that includes body parts such as face arms and chest.

COMMON SYMPTOMS

  • Flushing and sweating of the face,neck and upper chest region
  • This mostly occurs due to exposure to heat
  • Tearing of eyes
  • Nasal discharge
  • Abnormal contraction of pupils
  • Weakness in neck muscles
  • Dropping of one side of upper eyelid

DIAGNOSIS

  • Consistent signs and symptoms of the condition can help in the diagnosis so it is done by clinical observation.
  • Sometimes MRI is also suggested by doctors.
  • Tilt table test, orthostatic blood pressure measurement, head-up test, valsalva maneuver, thermoregulatory sweat test, tendon reflex test.
  • In some cases CT scan of the heart and lungs may be suggested by the doctor.

TREATMENT

There isn’t any specific treatment regimen for the condition. Surgical intervention is recommended is certain cases. When it’s possible for the doctor to spot the impaired nerve, then the damage can be rectified. In this process, a stellate ganglion block is conducted. For the stellate ganglion block, a local anesthetic is administered; it has been proved that this technique can reduce the duration and the intensity of the symptoms of the harlequin syndrome. Though this technique is rather new, is is quite effective in the management of the disorder.

As we know that there is no particular scientific treatment for this problem also, this can only be cured with the help of natural medicines that are made from herbs.

DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS

Our diet also plays an important role to keep us healthy. To control the symptoms of harlequin syndrome, we should avoid food items that are actually responsible for heat production in our body. A person with this problem should take pitta pacifying diet.

Fruits such as apple, mango, pomegranates, cranberries, figs, grapes, melons, pears, pineapple, prunes, oranges, raspberries, dates are good for pitta dosha. So one may include these fruits in his diet.

Cabbage, asparagus, cucumber, lettuce, Cauliflower, sunflower, cilantro, bell peppers, corn, broccoli, peas and alfalfa are good ones to pacify pitta dosha.

Sweeteners such as fruit sugar, honey can also be taken. Dairy products such as cream, ghee and milk are the best.

Spices such as cumin, coriander, cardamom, mint and turmeric can be used. All these are healthy ones. So always cook your food using these spices. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Caffeinated drinks should be avoided. Excess of Almonds, cashew nuts, walnuts are also bad for pitta dosha. So, these must also be avoided.

  2. Adrenomyelopathy - This is mostly visible in adult men. The growth of symptoms is slow as compared to childhood cerebral ALD.

SYMPTOMS (ADDISON'S DISEASES)

TREATMENT

  • Doctors may recommend a diet that contains low level of VLCFAs
