Sarcoidosis Herbal Remedies - Ayurvedic Treatment

Sarcoidosis Herbal Remedies-Natural and Ayurvedic Treatment

Sarcoidosis is a disease of unknown cause that leads to inflammation in many organs of the body. It is an auto-immune disease.Normally, your immune system defends your body against foreign or harmful substances. For example, it makes immunity cells to protect organs that are in danger.

These cells release chemicals that recruit other cells to isolate and destroy the harmful substance. Inflammation occurs during this process. Once the harmful substance is destroyed, the cells and the inflammation goes away.

In people who have sarcoidosis, the inflammation doesn't go away. Instead, some of the immune system cells cluster to form lumps called granulomas (gran-yu-LO-mas) in various organs in your body.

According to modern medical science- The cause of sarcoidosis is unknown at this time. Therefore, there is no specific treatment to cure the condition, but according to Ayurveda the disease is caused by generation of endotoxins i.e. it is an auto-immune disease which can be treated well with natural medicines. 


Steroids - Steroids are the drugs which are used in allopathic system of medicine to control inflammation. They are powerful anti-inflammatory agents, but they also affect the immune-system and has many side effects.
Corticosteroids, usually prednisone (wysolone), is used in reducing inflammation are  the first drugs used in the treatment of sarcoidosis. In patients with mild symptoms, such as skin lesions, eye inflammation, or cough, topical steroid therapy with creams, eye-drops or inhalers may be sometimes sufficient to control the disease but still there are many side effects involved. When necessary, oral steroids are generally prescribed for six to twelve months. In most cases, a relatively high dose is prescribed at first, followed by a slow taper to the lowest effective does.

Other Allopathic drugs for Sarcoidosis - 

Alternative medications are used in patients who cannot tolerate steroids, do not respond to steroids or wish to lower the dose of steroids. These include:
  • Methotrexate -- This medication reduces inflammation and suppresses the immune system
  • Cyclophosphamide and Azathiprine -- These medications are most commonly used in conjunction with steroids in patients whose condition is worsening despite treatment
  • Antimalarial Medications (Hydroxychloroquine) -- These medications are used to treat sarcoidosis of the skin and lungs
  • Colchicine -- This medication is most communly used to treat gout and is sometimes prescribed to treat sarcoidosis-related arthritis

Ayurvedic Treatment for Sarcoidosis 

Ayurveda - the ancient healthcare system medicine still very much practiced in India and many parts of the world. It is a WHO recognized and adopted by Govt. of India as a major healthcare system to help masses and provide the benefits of herbs and herbal remedies to public.
There are many herbal remedies for sarcoidosis described in Ayurveda. The name of the disease may be "ama-Vata ( similar to Rheumatism in aetiopathology and pathogenesis) or Sannipaitik aamaj granthi rog"

The treatment described in Ayurveda is as per the doshic theory i.e. maintaining the balance of Vata-Pitta-Kapha.

There are many patients who responded well to Ayurvedic treatment for Sarcoidosis. I gave the following prescription to most of them with some alterations depending upon patient to patient condition and allied diseases other than sarcoidosis.

  1. Hello,
    I am a sarcoid sufferer, could you please tell me how much turmeric or ginger i should take everyday to bring down inflammation? I don't have access to turmeric extract supplements but can get turmeric powder used in cooking.
    Thanks

  2. Thanks for the reply. Where can I get guggul capsules, what are these and do they have any side effects? Can I take fresh ginger instead of powder? I take fairly large piece of ginger extract its juice and drink with apple juice. I also take 1-2 tsp of turmeric mixed with olive oil and warm milk every night. Is this regimen okay or poses any risks or side effects? Kindly let me know.

  4. Yes, you can use fresh ginger instead of powder. The concept in treatment of sarcoidosis in Ayurveda is digestion of Ama i.e. endotoxins. The theory is different than that of current medical practice which believe in theory of auto-immunity. According to Ayurveda all auto-immune disorders are caused by endotoxins generated in our own system.
    herbs like Ginger, Curucumin, Guggul are good to clear them.

    I would recommend you to use all the above written Ayurvedic remedies for sarcoidosis which really have worked well for many patients. You can buy most of them from any ayurvedic shop in India or if you don't have access to them, then you can call General Manager of Planet Ayurveda products at - 0091-991559-3604 to know about how you can get all these in India and abroad.

  5. The regimen you have suggested to take ginger juice with apple juice is ok. Curcumin should be taken as it is with water and not with olive oil.
    It's good that you are taking both these herbs.

  6. I had inflammation of the iris in sept 2009 causing blurry vision. The optomologist diagnosied it as a condition caused by sarcoid. My blood report was fine with no issues, major organ fuctions fine, and all my renal scans were fine too. I was presecibed PRED FORTE drops (4x daily for 4 weeks) and then MaxiDex (1 drop 2 times a day for 6 weeks). This has killed the inflammation in the eye and has made my vision clearer but I stll see blurry image time to time and a bit heavyness on the right side of my head. I also did eye test recently by opticians and there is no glucoma issue but I do have prescription (numbers). Recently (5 days ago) I completed ayurveda panchkarma treatment (15h/08 to 30/08) which has made me feel better. I am now on 41 days medication supplements - I am hoping that my immune system will fight it all by itself as the ayurvedic medicines start to absorb and immune system gets to build stronger. Please could you let me know if there are other ayurvedic treatments that I should follow for completely erratidicating this condition? As I sometimes feel out of balance while standing up or sudden movement of head but generally fine. My ayurvedic practitioner is confident that I should start seeing the difference after 41 days - Any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Sarcoidosis is a condition when the steroids are used at one time or another.
    Panchkarma plays a major role in overall detoxification and rejuvenation of the body. In your case I would recommend you to use
    Curcumin Capsules -2 twice daily,
    Aloe vera juice - 30 ml twice daily, empty stomach
    Kachnaar guggul tablets -2 tablets thrice daily

    These herbal remedies work in a combination and give good results in conditions like sarcoidosis.
    You should be in touch with your local Ayurvedic Practitioner as well for follow up.

    he is right in saying that you will soon notice the difference after a few days.

    I would recommend you to go for panchkarma every 6 months for about 15 days.

    Best Wishes :-)

  8. Hello Dr. Vikram
    I am a 45 year female and was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in March 2009. I took steroidal treatment at AIIMS from Dr. Randeep Gulleria right away. The treatment started with heavy doses. The dosage was gradually reduced after 9 months of treatment and the treatment stopped after 15 months when no nodes were found in my lungs (through a CT scan). Now, HCQS is still continuing.
    I have been a patient of hypothyroid for the past 16 years and of diabetes for the past 5 years and take allopathic medicines for the same. I also had pain in the neck and shoulder for the past 7 years (perhaps due to spondilitis).
    Current Condition: I still don't feel healthy at all. I have swelling on my face and hands. My body pains all the time particularly in the legs and all the joints. I have shortness of breath even with little exertion. My eyesight has deteriorated. I had a terrible hair loss for which i had to take treatment. My immunity has perhaps reduced in the past as I've been ill 4-5 times in the past year. I feel very low and sometimes depressed.
    Questions:
    1. Why do you think my current condition is like it is? Is it just the side-effects of steroids?
    2. What would you suggest to heal my current condition?
    3. It has been seen that sarcoidosis may be followed by other diseases like nuerosarcoidosis or pulmonory fibrosis. I have some symptoms, not all and therefore would like to know if i should do something to prevent them.
    4. I am planning to stay at a naturopathy centre for at least 15 days shortly. How much do you approve of it?
    Thanking you,
    Jyoti Prasad

    ReplyDelete
  9. hi,
    I would strongly approve your stay for 15 days at a naturopathy center.I would also approve your visit to an Ayurvedic treatment center in Palampur (Himachal Pardesh) which is really a nice one and good for detoxification and overall rejuvenation. You can search on google for this kayakalp center - palampur. I think it is a govt. run or may be private but I stayed there and I really liked that.

    Now coming back to your health conditions, I would suggest you to start consuming Curcumin capsules ( made from standardized extract of Turmeric)
    Curcumin is not only useful for sarcoidosis but also good to improve immunity, helps in swellings, joint pains, inflammation and general body aches and that too without any side effects. the dosage is 2 capsules thrice daily in your case. You can read about them at www.PlanetAyurveda.com

    Other than Curcumin, i would recommend another energy booster without Sugar which is Amla Saar. i.e. Amla Juice. Amla is indian gooseberry juice. You can read about this one too at planetayurveda.com

    Start these 2 supplements. Another effective herbal remedy for sarcoidosis is Praanrakshak Churna. You can buy this herbal remedy at the same site I mentioned above.
    I hope this information is useful to you.

    Thanks - Dr. Vikram

  10. Thank you very much Dr. Vikram for your advice.

    I would also like to ask you if it is ok to take 'giloye' and aloe vera juice together. Will 'giloye' be useful for me? Do they have any side effects?

    Jyoti Prasad

    ReplyDelete
  11. yes, you can take aloe vera juice and Giloye together for Sarcoidosis, but more than this I would recommend you Turmeric ( curcumin ) capsules or use of Haridra.
    The other herbs useful as anti-ama herbs or ama pacifying herbs described in Ayurveda are also good.
    kachnaar Guggul is very specific for lymphadenopathy or any inflammation in lymph nodes. So it can be added too.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hello Dr.Vikram , Does Triphala help in Sarcoidosis at all? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  13. hi, Triphala is one of the effective herbal remedies for sarcoidosis. This helps by cleansing the body of toxins and triphala is also rich in natural anti-oxidants and cleansers. So it can be added in the treatment regimen.

    Thanks -Dr. vikram

  14. Hello Dr. My sis who ia 41 yrs old is suffering from sarcoidosis like symptoms since last 2 yrs but doctors are still not very sure about it and confuded whether it is tuberculosis or sarcoid PPd and other tubercular test are negative. she is not taking any medicine except paracetamol for fever she is having since 2 yrs she is also taking haldi powdwer in milk for about 1month. what else you would suggest her to take.

    ReplyDelete
  15. hi ! I would suggest first complete the tests for Sarcoidosis and confirm it if it is sarcoidosis or not. You should be in touch with a medical specialist for confirmation of sarcoidosis or tuberculosis.
    Even if it is Tb, or sarcoidosis, I would recommend you to add
    Tulsi capsules -2 capsules thrice daily
    Cap. Curcumin - 2 capsules thrice daily
    Tabelt Kachnaar Guggul -2 tablets thrice daily
    These are made from standardized extracts. You can contact Mr. Ashwani at 0991559-3604 about how you can get these. these are explained at -http://www.planetayurveda.com

  16. sir am an ayurveda graduae .plz can u tel me abt the logic of compairng it with aamavata?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Namaskar ! I am glad to know that about your question about why I have compared it to Ama vata.
    As you know, we should not indulge ourselves in naming of the disease rather than noticing the imbalance in the doshas. For easing or for physician's comfort some names have been given to some diseases in Ayurveda and also for doing "Lakshanik or Vyadi pratyanik Chikitsa" but still we can not achieve success if we do not follow the principle of "Dosha pratyanik chikitsa". So for the ease of understanding, I wrote the Disease "MAY BE" comapred with AmA vata..because Ama formation is there in both the diseases i..e Rheumatoid as well as Sarcoidosis. there are auto-immune antibodies in both the diseases. The disease may also be named - Sannipaitik aamaj granthi rog" which may not be there in the texts but we have to use our applied sense in order to name the disease. The treatment should be focussed on Doshic imbalances. i.e. maintaining the balance of Vata-Pitta-Kapha. I will be glad to explain further if you are interested to know. Please write to me at my mail ID. By the way, I have got excellent results from these Ayurvedic medicines combinations in sarcoidosis.

  18. Hello Doctor,

    My mother is suffering from sarcoidosis since last 7-8 yrs but unfortunately she was given treatment for T.B...Since last 2 yrs she has been taking steroid (wysolone 20).Recently she was asked to get lungs C.T. scan done.Doctor says there has been no change in C.T scan that was taken 7 yrs back and the one that is taken now. So doctor reduced the dose from 20mg to 5mg.My mother was diagnosed with diabities also at the same time i.e.7 yrs back. Now she is taking insulin. she is suffering from high diabities because of steroid she has been taking.

    Now sarcoidosis problem has affeced her eyes and skin after affecting her lungs.Prolonged suffering has made her very disappointed and depresses.

    Kindly suggest what ayurvedic medicines are bes for her for treating her sarcoidosis and diabities. Also, can she take allopathy and ayurvedic treatment at the same time?

    ReplyDelete
  19. The alternative treatment for Sarcoidosis should be followed now for your mom. I would recommend the above recommended ayurvedic remedies for her. Other than this, Since she is diabetic, I want to give her liver cleanse to remove toxins. Liver cleanse helps in most of the diseases. So I would like to add - Yakrit Plihantak Churna in this case.
    You can discuss further by sending the reports of your mom to herbalremedies123@yahoo.com and if possible you can visit us or call us at 09915593604 for further evaluation.

  22. Hello, I had been diagnosed and subsequently treated for pulmonary sarcoidosis about 3 yrs back. Since past 8 months I have been experiencing pain and stiffness in the finger and ankle joints, like if I carry a bag for a little while, the fingers would remain in that bent position even after the bag is removed. Is this another manifestation of the disease?

    ReplyDelete
  23. according to ayurveda, sarcoidosis is an auto-immune disease and all auto-immune disease are caused by endotoxins called "Ama" as per ayurvedic theory. So our main purpose is to clear Ama formation and accumulation. this can be achieved by the formulations described above. All the auto-immune diseases respond to this combination of herbs and minerals.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Since I have explained a lot of information about Sarcoidosis and there are many who are willing to start ayurvedic treatment for sarcoidosis or searching for alternative sarcoidosis treatment, I would recommend them to start with Planet Ayurveda's Curcumin capsules, Aloe vera juice, Aller-G care Capsules, Planet Ayurveda's Tulsi capsules. People can also contact my manager Mr. Ashwani Thakur at 0091- 9915593604 for appointments

  28. Curcumin ( Turmeric ) is excellent herbal remedy for Sarcoidosis. Curcumin used along with Garlic and Ginger works as best herbal remedies for sarcoidosis. you can continue taking Ginger and turmeric. Amla is also good. You can start with Amla capsules to improve immunity and overall health, including sarcoidosis.

    Kachnaar Guggul, Curcumin , Ginger and aloe vera are also good and do not interfere with Coumadins, steroids or other blood pressure medicines you mentioned. Add Kachnaar guggul tablets, as they help shrink the swollen lymph nodes which are characteristic of sarcoidosis

    ReplyDelete
  33. Dear Doctor, I am happy to find your site on line and read through all messages. I am wondering if you consider a persons life style and habits in thinking of the cause and in the treatment of Sarcoidosis. I have heard that it is thought by some in Ayurveda that diseases such as this can be considered a Karmic disease. Do you find any truth to this? Do you address life style changes along with the herbs and dietary changes with your patients with this disease?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes. Sarcoidosis herbal remedies work very well but I advise my patients to think positively in life and make necessary changes in lifestyle. Someone rightly said to you that ayurveda believes that all diseases are born because of our Karma. Doing right things in life will keep the feelings of Anger, Guilt, jealousy, hatred away from one's mind. These feelings lead to imbalance of hormones ( adrenaline, cortisol) in our body causing imbalance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The imbalance of vata, pitta and kapha is the cause of all diseases. Diet, lifestyle, karma, (routine) play important role in treatment and prevention of diseases. I am in Prague (czech republic) at the moment and very busy with the seminar lectures and I could not hold myself to publish your comment and reply it.
    I wish you health and happiness.- Dr. Vikram Chauhan

    I would like to say Thank You to Doctor Vikram for his help in treating sarcoidosis of the lungs. My fiancee was having it discovered after X-ray and biopsy and we decided to use Curcumin, Kachnaar Guggul and Aloe Vera together. My fiancee started taking all of that 4 months ago and each month she made X-ray. During 4 months we progressively see that inflammation in the lungs goes away and we are very happy. Such herbal medicines are much better for the body than chemicals.

    1. For sarcoidosis treatment the curcumin capsules are good and not for high creatinine or Uric acid. Curcumin is good for pains and inflammations but not for fire energy imbalance- which seems to be your case.
      Curcumin is also high in fire.. And causes imbalance of fire energy. Curcumin needs to be balanced by using aloe Vera juice, rencure formula, arogyavardhni vati, mutrakruchantak churna. Using these you can continue using curcumin for inflammation due to sarcoidosis.
      Then it will be helpful in treatment of sarcoidosis as well as urea creatinine

    1. Dear Dr. Rajesh - The immuno suppresant drugs are not really the answer to the auto-immune diseases. We need immuno-modulation rather than suppression. The diseases like Multiple sclerosis, sarcoidosis, Rheumatoid arthritis and many others need immuno-modulating natural herbs like turmeric ( curcumin), tinospora cordifolia etc. For sarcoidosis, the above mentioned recipe of various ayurvedic herbs is very useful and helps to reduce the size of the nodules and further prevent inflammation. Steroids are also not a good way to take temporary shelter rather Curcumin, Ginger work better than steroids. So I would suggest you to write to My assistant Mr. Ashwani or call him at the top of this blog so that we can discuss your case further and I can recommend you ayurvedic treatment.

  41. Dear Dr. Vikram,
    I have recently spent a week in the hospital for fevers, and joint pain and swelling, and muscle pain. After a lot of blood work and several ct scans it was discovered that my lymph nodes between the heart and lungs are swollen and I have nodules on my liver. This has caused the drs. to think that I have sarcoidosis. I was told that now they need to do a biopsy of my lymph nodes, which they can do by going through my lung with a needle. This scares me, but I guess may have to be done. I have had fevers now for 4 weeks, which last night was 101.7 after taking both tylenol and motrin an hour and a half earlier. Is there an herbal remedy to help get rid of the fevers? At present I am only taking motrin and tylenol for the symptoms.

    Many thanks for all of your helpful information here!

    1. hi - There are many ayurvedic herbs which work as natural anti-inflammatory agents and give results equal to or even better than the regular analgesics like Tylenol ( paracetamol) and Motrin ( Ibuprofen). These herbs are Curcumin compounds from Turmeric ( Check www.planetcurcumin.com) and Guggulusterons from the plant Commiphora Mukul ( commonly known as Guggul or Myrhh tree). Anyway, For fever due to sarcoidosis, and also hilar lymphnodes enlargement, i would suggest the Boswellia-curcumin capsules -2 thrice daily and Kachnaar Guggul tablets -2 twice daily. I have mentioned all the other herbal medicines for Sarcoidosis in the post above. You can start with all of them also to reduce the swelling in lymph nodes. Or Contact Mr. Ashwani at - ashwani3003@gmail.com to get all these delivered at your doorstep. HIs phone no. is +919915593604. Our main website is www.planetayurveda.com
      You should start using Boswellia-Curcumin capsules and Kachnaar Guggul tablets, along with some detoxifying herbal juice like Plain Aloe vera juice. THis should help eliminate fevers and control or even reverse the disease sarcoidosis.

    2. Dear Dr. Vikram,
      I've had sarcoidosis which affects my eyes from the age of 7. I have had to use eye drops in my early years, then during my mid teens (14-20)i have had to use prednisolone (ON AND OFF) to control the inflammation and pain. I have also had multiple operations on my eyes, mainly the right eye to get rid of the scarring caused by this disease.
      I am 29 now and have not used eye drops or steroids for the past 9 years but have been suffering the effects of this disease/medication since, as i have lost most of my vision (seriously blurred vision) in my right eye due to the "scarring" caused by the sarcoid (as told to me by the surgeons) as my left seems to be deteriorating slowly and still get the odd pain in the back of both eyes occasionally.
      What would you suggest taking to (maybe) reverse this disease and/or if there is any chance to get rid of the scarring at the back of my right eye.
      Any advice/info would be grateful as i have been told there is no cure for sarcoid and intrigued by the ayurvedic treatment.

      I also want to ask if your supplements/treatments is possible for abroad shipping as i live in the UK.

      Thank you for all you information and advice!

  52. Hello I am Dr, Kumar , My sis who 44 yrs old is suffering from sarcoidosis like symptoms since last 1 yrs but doctors are still not very sure about it whether it is tuberculosis or sarcoidosis in HEART. Myocardium biopsy was done, for sarcoidosis and other tubercular test are negative.
    Many scar present in her heart. Time to time VT episode came,carto- guided RFA was done but not effective. After that ICD was implanted to control VT.
    At the time of discharge she took steroid 16 mg x2 for one months
    Then right now she is taking 4mg x2
    But right now many side effects like swelling face , leg etc.
    Kindly suggest what ayurvedic medicines are best for her for treating her sarcoidosis . Also, can she take allopathy and ayurvedic treatment at the same time?

    1. Dear Dr. Kumar - There are certain Ayurvedic medicines which work really well for Sarcoidosis. These are Curcumin, Kachnaar Guggul, Guggulipid or Kishore Guggul, Giloy Capsules, and the remedies mentioned in this article at # 4. For swelling, I would like to add- Punarnava capsules -2 twice daily. Contact Mr. Ashwani thakur at - 09915593604 to get all these delivered at your place. I also request everyone else to write to us at - herbalremedies123@gmail.com or visit our main website - www.planetayurveda.com to contact us

  56. Dr I have sarcoidosis and recently started taking 500mg x 2 tumeric tablets daily, bromelain, fishoil and glucosameine after 6 days I experienced uterine cramping and breakthrough menstrual bleeding which continues (I have stopped fish oil and reduced tumeric to 250mg once per day). I am hoping this will improve as I noticed a good effect on my joint pain/energy levels. Do you have any guidance on this aspect as I understand tumeric/curcumin is a uterine stimulant? Thanking you.

  57. Sir,

    I am a sarcodiosis patient for the last 8 years, my problem is breathlessness and cough sometimes, I had a weight loss in the beginning , but now it is not there. If I climb a flight of steps I feel heaviness in my chest for sometime. A Ct scan and X-Ray was done last year and the Pulmonologist has advised me to take azathoprine 50mg twice daily, which I have been taking for the last 15 months. Kindly advise if it is okay to take the above said medicine along the allopathy medicine.

    Thanking you,
    Shanbhag GS
