Evans syndrome, ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) & Ayurvedic Treatment


Evans syndrome is a very rare autoimmune disorder which is marked by abnormally low levels of platelets, red blood cells, and/or white blood cells in the body. The alarmingly low levels of these blood cells are a result of the production of antibodies by the immune system of the affected individual’s body. These antibodies mistakenly destroy the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Individuals affected by Evans syndrome typically experience two main conditions:

  1. Thrombocytopenia (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura or ITP, for instance) which refers to low levels of platelets;
  2. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) which refers to premature destruction of red blood cells. In addition, they may also experience another condition called Neutropenia, which refers to low levels of certain white blood cells known as neutrophils.

Evans syndrome is generally defined as the association of AIHA together with ITP; with Neutropenia not occurring very often. In the affected individuals, the antibodies produced by the immune system may destroy the body's own red blood cells and platelets either simultaneously (at the same time) or sequentially (with one condition developing before the other).

The common symptoms of low levels of circulating red blood cells (anaemia) include fatigue, pale skin color, light-headedness, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, dark-colored urine, and yellowing of skin (jaundice); while the symptoms of ITP or low levels of platelets commonly include appearance of small reddish/purple spots on the skin, larger purplish discoloration on the skin, purpura (a purple rash), and susceptibility to bruising even after minor injuries.


Timely treatment of Evans syndrome is very important because the condition can eventually lead to life-threatening complications, including sepsis, incidents of severe bleeding, and heart failure or other cardiovascular problems.

DTPA Test, Kidney Diseases & Ayurvedic Approach

Radioisotopic renography (renal scan) involves the use of radioactive materials to examine the kidneys. The two most common radiolabelled pharmaceutical agents used are Tc99m-MAG3 (mercaptoacetyltriglycine or mertiatide) and Tc99m - DTPA (diethylenetriaminepentacetate).

In the DTPA renal scan, there is the use of radioactive material (radionulides) to examine the person’s kidneys and evaluate their function. This examination of kidney function comes under nuclear medicine in this process, there is use of radionuclides and relies on the process of radioactive decay in the diagnosis of disease. It is used in 1960’s at Nephro – Urology.

A renal scan is also known as a renal imaging, or a renogram or renal scintigraphy.

The Radioisotopic renography ie. The DTPA renal scan is performed asses the blood supply, function and excretion of urine from the kidneys. This test can also find out the  percentage of each kidney contributes to the total kidney function.


  • Renal tubular function and perfusion.
  • Renovascular hypertension (high blood pressure in the arteries of the kidneys).
  • Renal artery stenosis (narrowing of the arteries that take blood to the kidneys).
  • Tumor or cyst.
  • Renal tubular blockage and damage.
  • Renal transplant perfusion and function.


The patient is given an intravenous injection of a radioactive material called radioisotopes. This radioisotope releases gamma rays. The gamma scanner detects the gamma rays. The gamma camera scans the kidney area. It tracks the radioisotope and measures how the kidneys working. The camera also works with a computer to create images. These images detail the structure and functioning of the kidneys based on how they interact with the radioisotope.

Renal scan images show both structural and functional abnormalities. This helps doctors to diagnose a kidney problem in its earlier stages.


There are no side effects from the radioactive injection. A diuretic is given to an increased flow of urine, if required. A Person may feel thirsty and need to drink plenty of fluids.


When the technician completes the renal scan, a nuclear medicine radiologist will elucidate the image and know the findings. Abnormal results of a renal scan can indicate the various kidney abnormalities such as:

Kidney Stones and Tumors

Kidney stones are the most common kidney problem. When minerals and other substances in the blood crystallize in the kidneys, forming solid stones.


An inflammation of the glomeruli occurs, that condition is called Glomerulonephritis. Glomeruli are very small structures inside the kidneys that filter the blood. Glomerulonephritis can be caused by infections, drugs, or congenital abnormalities.

Polycystic Kidney Disease

It is a genetic disorder that causes numerous cysts to grow in the kidneys. These cysts can interfere with kidney function and cause kidney failure. Polycystic kidney disease is a serious condition.

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are bacterial infections of any part of the urinary system. They are easily treatable and rarely lead to more health problems.

Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Disease is a the most common form of kidney disease. It is commonly caused by high blood pressure. Long-term condition that does not improve over time.

Renovascular Hypertension

Renovascular Hypertension is also called ‘Renal Hypertension’. It is a condition in which High blood pressure (greater than 140/80 mmHg) caused by narrowing of the arteries that carry blood to the kidneys. Narrowing or blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the kidneys is called ‘Renal artery stenosis.

Patient’s kidney size and shape influence the results of your DTPA scan. An abnormal kidney structure could result in an incorrect reading.


The Patient's diet is also important as much as taking medications. Healthy lifestyle may help to prevent many causes of kidney disease.

  • Control Diabetes by taking Insulin.
  • Cut off  high cholesterol diet.
  • Take a low salt diet.
  • Take healthy diet includes fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.
  • Limit alcohol consumption.
  • Increase physical exercise and try to weight loss.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Intussusception - Cause, Symptoms, Diagnose & Herbal Remedies

Intussusception is a form of bowel obstruction which is a serious condition wherein one segment of the intestine telescopes or slides inside of another leading to blockage or obstruction of intestine. It blocks the food and fluid from passing through. It mainly occurs at the junction of the small and large intestines. The obstruction often causes swelling and inflammation which can lead to intestinal injury. It cuts off the blood supply to the affected part of the intestine thus leading to a tear in the bowel, infection and death of the bowel tissue.

Intussusception is one of the most common abdominal emergency conditions affecting children less than 3 years of age. It is very common in babies and more common in boys than girls. In children, an X-ray procedure is able to push back the intestine in its position. In adults, intussusception is mainly due to a tumor or polyps which often requires surgery.

According to Ayurveda, obstruction means upward or backward or reverse movement of vata disorder.


The cause of intussusception is unknown. Some, viral or bacterial infection of intestine might lead to intussusception. In some children, it is caused by a condition that the child is born with such as a polyp or diverticulum. It could be due to enlarged lymph nodes or blood vessel abnormality in the intestines.

Weight loss surgery or a surgery of intestinal tract is another cause of intussusception. One may get the problem due to inflammation caused by Crohn’s disease.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Epidermoid cysts - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

Epidermoid cysts are slow growing and often painless and they rarely cause any problems. They are non-cancerous bumps beneath the skin but most commonly found on the face, neck and trunk.

They are mistakenly considered as sebaceous cysts but they are different as they arise from the glands that secrete oily matter that lubricates the hair and skin known as sebaceous glands.

In most of the cases, epidermoid cysts cause no long-term problems. Squeezing out the contents of the cysts on your own can lead to an infection, so it is better to leave the cyst alone.

Once a cyst is drained, there is a possibility that it will grow back. Very rarely, these cysts can become malignant.

Most epidermoid cysts don’t cause any problems but see the doctor if:

  • Cysts are growing rapidly.
  • Occurs in a spot that is constantly irritated.
  • Ruptures or becomes painful
  • Becomes infected
  • Cyst is at unusual location such as on the finger or toe.


  • A small, round bump on the skin usually on the face, trunk or neck.
  • A smelly yellow and thick material that drains from the cyst.
  • Redness and swelling in the affected area, if inflamed or infected.
  • A tiny blackhead in the central opening of the cyst


The surface of the skin is made up of a thin, protective layer of cells that the body continuously sheds. Most of the epidermoid cysts form when these cells move deeper into the skin and multiply rather than sloughing off.

Sometimes cysts are also formed due to irritation or injury to the skin or the most superficial portion of a hair follicle.

The walls of the cyst are formed by the epidermal cells and then they secrete the protein keratin into the interior. The keratin is a thick yellow substance that sometimes drains from the cyst.

This abnormal growth of the cells may be due to a damaged hair follicle or oil gland in the skin.

These cysts often develop in response to skin trauma, HPV infection, excessive exposure to the sun or acne. These cysts are more likely to develop in people with acne or other skin conditions.


True epidermoid cysts look like sebaceous cysts but they are different as true epidermoid cysts result from the damage caused to the hair follicles or the outer layer of the skin.

The doctor will examine the bump and surrounding skin as well as take a medical history.

Skin biopsy is performed for detailed analysis in the laboratory.


The cause of epidermoid cyst according to Ayurveda: The three doshas contaminate the muscles and blood, fat, vein and blood vessels which cause an elevated swelling which is rounded and knotted (clotted). Such swelling is known as Granthi in Ayurveda.


Treatment of epidermoid cyst by Planet Ayurveda includes the prescription of herbal remedies that help in removing cysts naturally without causing any side effects.

Ayurvedic Treatment for NK/T-Cell Lymphoma in Nose

NK/T-Cell lymphoma in nose is a rare lymphoid neoplasm which in the past has been grouped with a variety of granulomatous diseases. It is almost associated with Epstein Barr Virus (EBV).

The disease can occur in patients of any age but is most common in persons between 40-50 years of age. In some cases, the problem may masquerade as a local indolent ulcer or chronic sinusitis for many years. In this condition, extensive local tissue destruction and inflammation can cause perforation of the palate or nasal septum which is spread to the nasopharynx, oral cavity and paranasal sinus. It may also cause retinal detachment. Central nervous system involvement is rare in this case.

This lymphoma remains localised in the nasal primary site in many cases with little documented nodal spread. The disease tends to metastasize to the skin, gut, testis, ovaries and muscle. Bone marrow involvement is not common.

What are the symptoms of NK/T-cell lymphoma in nose?

Extra-nodal NK/T-cell lymphoma is usually found only in the area around the nose when it is diagnosed. This means it is most often at stage 1E or stage 2E, where E stands for extra-nodal. Some people have more widespread lymphoma (stage 3 or 4) when they are diagnosed.

Symptoms are:

  • Blocked nose
  • Weepy eyes
  • Swelling on the face
  • Problem in swallowing
  • Problems in the teeth


T-cell lymphomas are rare. So, according to modern medicine, it is difficult to determine which treatment will give the best outcome.

Modern treatment includes radiotherapy of the areas affected by lymphoma particularly if the lymphoma is localised to the area around the nose. If the lymphoma is widespread as in the stages 3 and 4, then patient is likely to have chemotherapy alone but it is common for extra-nodal NK/T-cell lymphoma to relapse after being its remission. Sometimes lymphoma doesn’t respond to the treatment.

Treatment of NK/T-cells lymphoma in nose by Planet Ayurveda

The body must be purified of the toxins that cause the cells to attack the body.

The main target of Ayurvedic treatment is to control the production of kapha dosha in the body and to make immune system strong and to boost the strength of the debilitated patients.

There are a number of herbs mentioned in Ayurveda for the treatment of lymphoma. These herbs do not cause any side effects or complications like mucus dryness or increasing pitta dosha in the body.

There are various herbs which help to treat the terminal ileitis such as bilwa, giloy, kutaj, vasaka etc.


Terminal ileitis is a type of Crohn’s disease. It is chronic inflammation of ileum. Ileitis is combination of two words – Ileum i.e. Latin word, meaning is intestine and the Greek word Itis meaning is inflammation. Collectively it is intestine inflammation which is a rare condition, marked by chronic inflammation of the 'ileum' --- the longest, narrowest and lowest (last/terminal) portion of the small intestine. This condition may involve more than one part of intestine including colon which is the main portion of intestine. Both men and women are equally at risk of developing this problem.
