There is a neuromuscular problem which if occurs affects body up to great extent. Today we are discussing about this disease. This is famous with the name of Friedreich's ataxia. This problem can be managed through herbal treatment. But what is this problem exactly about? First we should have knowledge regarding this.

WHAT IS FRIEDREICH'S ATAXIA?

This is a rare genetic, neurodegenerative, progressive and movement disorder. This disease involves damage to your brain and heart. This was first described by a German scientist, Nikolaus Friedreich in 1863. This is why this ailment is named 'Friedreich's ataxia'. In this ataxia, reflects the mean lack of order or coordination in the body movements.

WHY FRIEDREICH'S ATAXIA PROBLEM OCCURS?

This is a genetic problem which occurs due to mutation in a gene. This is an autosomal recessive disorder in which an individual has two copies of defected gene.

In a new born baby, there is a set of two genes for every character. One came from mother and other from the father. These genes present on the number of chromosomes. There are 23 pairs of chromosome in a human body. 22 are autosomal and one is sex chromosome. Every chromosome carries number of genes. These genes are present in two parts, known as alleles. During genetic formation in a new born two allele from father and two from mother has to combine. So according to this four possibilities are there and if both the parents known to contain mutant genetic allele, the chances of disorder increases.

In the case of Friedreich's ataxia, FXN gene is responsible for the ailment. This gene is present on the chromosome 9.

This gene mutation further limits the production of a protein, frataxin.

  • A gene which is important for the functioning process of mitochondria, helps to move iron content and in formation of iron-sulfur clusters (are important part of mitochondrion functioning in oxygen transfer). As mitochondria acts as an energy source for all body functioning. As this energy flow obstructs and due to production of free radicals, this results in cellular damage and other serious consequences.
  • Another effect of this gene mutation is this – as FXN gene normally known to produce 33 copies of DNA sequences. These sequence may repeat in case of disorder, it repeats over 66 to 1000 times. This DNA number when got out of control, severe brain cerebellum and spinal cord damage known to occur.

HOW ONE GET TO KNOW A PERSON SUFFER FROM FRIEDREICH'S ATAXIA?

This can be looked out through some symptoms which are proliferate during disease. These are:-

  • Ataxia of legs and torso
  • Weak legs
  • Weak muscles
  • Speech problems
  • Lack of coordination
  • Change in vision
  • Loss of hearing
  • Loss of touch
  • Inward turning of feet
  • Scoliosis
  • Cardiac problems such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Enlargement of the heart or decreasing its pumping capacity
  • Sometime diabetes can arise due to glucose intolerance which happens because of decreased production of insulin.

HOW THIS FRIEDREICH'S ATAXIA PROBLEM CAN BE DIAGNOSED?

  • Physical examination involves testing reflexes
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Nerve conducting velocity test (NCV)
  • CT scan
  • Genetic testing

This problem should be treated as soon as possible. This problem can be treated through natural ways. This is more convenient and harmless way of treatment.

Natural Way of Treatment is Known with a Name - Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient medicinal treatment way that originated in India many years ago. Ayurveda concept is rooted in Vedas. This is an ancient art of healing ailments that involves science, philosophy and spirituality are all necessary aspects of healthy living.

This healing system works on the principle of three doshas that is known to control the all body functioning. These are:-

  1. Vata dosha is known to contain the process like movements such as respiration, circulation, impulses and elimination.
  2. Kapha dosha is known to control growth and immunity and protection system of the body. The stomach mucosal lining, cerebro spinal fluid and spinal column all categorized under this dosha.
  3. Pitta dosha is known to control metabolism of the body.

AYURVEDIC VIEW POINT OF FRIEDREICH'S ATAXIA

In Ayurveda, the protein frataxin is correlated with prana vata that controls the action of udana and in turn vyana vata is impaired and induced gati.

Due to decreased pranayatna (action potential), less ATP production (urga karma) is there. This leads to decreased cellular metabolism (known as bala in ayurveda), due to which ama drvya is produced at the cellular levels. This ama leads to obstruction and iron alternation reacts with oxygen to produce free radicals (known as ama visha) and destroys cellular processes.

So we can say that Friedreich's ataxia is known to cause due to imbamace in vata, the prana, udana and vyana types of vata.

This problem of imbalance of dosha can be treated through the combination of herbal formulations that orignated from the womb of nature.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Wilson disease

Health is like money that we never had a true value until we lost this. Health issues can be on various levels. You can be affected physically, psychologically or genetically. Globally, over 350 million rare diseases, 80 % caused by faulty genes. There is huge impact of these faulty genes on our health because these genes are the basis of body's functioning. This genetic fault overcome process is very difficult or next to impossible in many cases but these are therapeutical formulations that can manage the symptoms and conditions that raised in genetic diseases. These help to overcome the condition up to very much extent. There are various natural herbal formulations in Ayurveda that can effectively manage the conditions related to genetic ailments. One of the disease that is raised due to these faulty genes is Wilson disease. But first to know what Wilson disease, the genes and the genetic enlightenment is crucial to be known.

Genes are that important part of the living beings. Each cell contains a specific number of chromosomes that are inherited half-half from the parents. There are pairs of 23 chromosomes in every single cell in humans – 22 are autosomes and 23rd is sex chromosome. The genes are present on these chromosomes. These genes present in two copies – one comes from mother and other comes from father. Every function of the body part, all the movements, process and appearance depends on these genes and their setting and any mutation in any of these can cause ailment of that particular function or organ. These mutation can arise due to several reasons like if one of the parent had mutant copy of gene, deletion, addition or any spontaneous gene mutation that aroused due to mutagens (components that cause mutations like UV rays and toxins).

Wilson's disease

THE WILSON DISEASE is also aroused due to mutation in one of the body's gene. There is a gene ATP7B that is mutated. This is located on chromosome number 13. This problem occurs more frequently in individuals having inherited different mutations from each of the parent.

HOW MUCH WE KNOW ABOUT WILSON DISEASE?

Wilson's disease is an autosomal-recessive disease that is caused by mutation in gene, which results in impairment of biliary excretion of copper. Copper is an essential element for cellular function but the free copper is very dangerous. Body system transports essential copper to predetermined sites and helps in proper elimination of excess copper through the body. If this copper accumulation process gets irritated, certain problems can occur. As in this ailment, liver not filters copper properly and this copper then builds up majorly in liver and brain.

WHO ARE MORE PRONE TO WILSON'S DISEASE?

A chance of person being a carrier of this aliment increases if the family has some history of Wilson's disease and can have this if both parents are diagnosed with this condition.

Males and females are equally affected with this condition.

Herbal Treatment For Fatty Liver Disease

Liver, a largest internal organ of the body, is present on the upper right side of the abdomen. The removal of toxins from the body is the main function of this organ. Several health problems are there which are associated with liver. One of them is- fatty liver disease.

WHAT IS FATTY LIVER DISEASE?

Fatty liver disease, also known as Steatosis, occurs due to the buildup of fats in the largest internal organ. Generally, the presence of fats in the liver is regarded as normal, but once the fat composition reaches approx. 5 to 10 percent of the liver, then it is regarded as harmful fat.

WHAT IS MEANT BY FATTY LIVER?

When there is an excess of fats in the body, our liver may absorb these fats from our intestines as well as from other parts of the body and results in fatty liver. And the liver loses its ability to change this excess fat into the eliminated form and in turn causes fatty liver disease and several other complications as well.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FATTY LIVER DISEASE?

Generally, there are two types of this disease which are explained below-

First one is an Alcoholic liver disease. As the name suggests, this disorder is related to excessive alcohol consumption. But the disorder can occur due to hepatitis A, obesity and excess iron in the body as well.

Another type of this disorder is Non-alcoholic liver disease. The exact cause of this disease is not known. But there are some risk factors. A person having family history of any liver disorder may get this disease. An overweight person may also get this disorder. Medications can be the reason for the same.

FATTY LIVER DISEASE IN CASE OF PREGNANCY

A pregnant women is also at the risk of fatty liver disease. Because, there are more chances of accumulation of fat in the body at that time. No doubt, the cases are rare, but may cause a serious risk to woman as well as to her baby.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF FATTY LIVER DISEASE?

The common symptoms of this disorder are listed below:

  • Feeling tired
  • Weakness
  • Sudden loss of weight
  • Nausea
  • Confusion and trouble in concentration
  • Pain in the belly

HOW CAN FATTY LIVER DISEASE BE DIAGNOSED?

The disorder can be well diagnosed with the help of some tests. Simple blood test (liver function test) can even diagnose the same. For more confirmation, MRI, ultrasound and computed tomography scan are some other tests. Even sometimes, liver biopsy is needed to confirm the diagnosis.

AYURVEDA FOR FATTY LIVER DISEASE

Ayurveda is a system of healthcare that has its roots in, India. It offers a natural way to maintain a good health. There are three doshas vata, pitta and Kapha dosha which are regarded as the forces of our life, in Ayurveda. These doshas are to be in a balanced state, otherwise they give rise to health issues.

Pellegrini Stieda Syndrome Treatment in Ayurveda

WHAT IS PELLEGRINI STIEDA SYNDROME?

Pellegrini stieda syndrome is a rare form of joint problem that affects medial collateral ligament (MCL). In this type of joint problem, calcium gets deposit over the medial side of the knee. This disease often occurs in person who have medial collateral ligament injury.

MEDIAL COLLATERAL LIGAMENT AND ITS FUNCTION

In general, there are four major ligaments that are important for the stability of the knee joint. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is one of them. The medial collateral ligament is made up of tough fibrous material. This ligament functions to control the excessive motion by limiting the mobility of the knee joint.

The Medial collateral ligament covers the distance from the end of the thigh bone (femur) to the top of the shin bone (tibia) and is located inside the knee joint. The MCL prevents widening of the space inside the joint, or we can say, it prevents opening-up of the knee. It prevents the knee from bending inward.

WHAT ARE MCL TEARS?

Injury to the medial collateral ligament causes the MCL or other ligaments of the knee joint to stretch or tear.

MCL tears causes pain, stiffness and swelling in the joint. These symptoms occur along the inner side of the knee joint. Pain can range from moderate to severe depending upon the severity of injury.

TREATMENT OF MCL TEARS

In general, treatment of Pellegrini stieda syndrome depends upon the severity of medial collateral ligament injury. The treatment begins with allowing the pain in the knee to subside and is followed by strengthening the knee to return to their normal function. Sometimes, bracing can be useful for the treatment of medial collateral ligament injuries. Even sometimes, surgery is required to treat the MCL tear.

IS THERE ANY AYURVEDIC TREATMENT FOR PELLEGRINI STIEDA SYNDROME?

Kidney Failure - Causes & Natural Cure

Kidney diseases has become the great public health issue. From past few years there is rapid spurt in the incidence of kidney diseases. India's current population is 1.2 billion and it has been studied that every year approximately 1,650,000 to 2,200,000 people develop the kidney failure or End Stage Renal Diseases (ESRD). But it is miserable that only 10% or even less gets renal replacement therapy.

WHAT IS KIDNEY FAILURE?

Kidneys are pair of organs which are located on back of abdomen. Kidney's major function is to filter the blood. Besides this kidney helps to remove the wastes from body and balance the body's fluid.

Kidney failure is also called as End Stage Renal Diseases (ESRD). It occurs when blood flow slows down to kidneys or ureter gets blocked and wastes are not able to extrude from body which leads to the damage to kidney.

Before switching to the treatment part, one must know the causes associated with the disease (Kidney failure)

  • Diabetes is the major risk factor of kidney failure and around 20-30% people who are suffering from diabetes develop the kidney failure. In diabetes there is destruction of small blood vessels in the body. So injured blood vessels in the kidneys are not able to filter blood properly and all the waste materials are accumulated in blood which leads to kidney damage.
  • High blood pressure is 2nd major cause which is responsible for kidney failure. High blood pressure causes the damage to kidney’s blood vessels which also leads to kidney failure.
  • Heart diseases are also responsible for kidney failure because abrupt loss of  blood flow to kidney leads to kidney failure.
  • Problem in urine elimination like kidney stones problems, prostate enlargement and blood clots formation in urinary tract. Due to these problems  body is not able to eliminate urine , there is accumulation of toxins in kidneys

OTHER CAUSES INCLUDES

  • Alcohol consumption.
  • Inflammation of blood vessels which is termed as vasculitis.
  • Chemotherapy drugs which are used for the treatment of cancer.
  • Use of analgesics like acetominophen, ibuprofen, aspirin and naproxen.
  • Antibiotic like methicillin, vancomycin, sulfonamides and ciprofloxacin.
  •  Certain viral infections like Hepatitis, AID and HIV.
  • Autoimmune diseases like lupus which may cause the inflammation of various body parts.
  • Toxins accumulation due to heavy metals.
  • Dyes which are used in imaging tests.

CAUSE OF KIDNEY FAILURE ACCORDING TO AYURVEDA

According to Ayurveda there are three doshas – vata, pitta and kapha which are necessary to maintain a healthy body. Imbalance of any of three dosha results in health issues. In Ayurveda kidney failure is known as disease of mutravaha srotas. All the three dosha are responsible for kidney failure. Imbalanced Kapha dosha is responsible for the blockage of small body channels called as srotas. Whereas imbalanced vata dosha is responsible for the destruction of kidney structure.

There are various herbs are present in Ayurveda like Varun (Crateva nurvala), Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa),Gokshur (Tribulus terrestris), Kaasni (Chicorium intybus), Bhumi alma (Phyllanthus niruri)Shirish (Albezzia lebbok),Shigru (Moringa oleifera) and Apamarg (Achyranthes aspera) which are helpful to strength the kidney system and improve their capacity of filtration.
