Ayurvedic Treatment for Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP)

Nowadays number of health problems are there. Many of people are not aware about rare diseases. Some of the health problems are related to immune system. In that case problems arises because the body's own immune system attackss its own tissues. These conditions are known as Auto Immune Reactions. Henoch Schonlein Purpura is one of such reaction. In this article we will discuss about this problem in detail and its Ayurvedic treatment.

What is Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP)?

It is also known as Anaphylactoid Purpura. It is inflammatory condition in which immune system is disturbed which may be due to infection or some medication.

It is a form of inflammation of small blood vessel or Vasculitis. When inflammation of blood vessels occurs it is known as Vasculitis and when these vessels get inflamed and bleed, then rashes are formed and it is known as Purpura. This disorder causes inflammation of small blood vessels, kidneys, joints and intestines. It is characterized by purplish rashes on lower legs and buttocks and it may also cause abdominal pain and aching of joints. It may affect any age but it is more common in children.

What are the causes of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP)?

HSP is the problem of immune system which commonly occurs after previous infection. It is the most commonly occurring problem in spring season and follows infection of respiratory tract such as cold.

In this condition, immune system is activated to produce antibody named IgG which mainly targets blood vessels and causes inflammation of blood vessels. This condition is called Vasculitis. Other causes may include drugs, food or insects.

There are different symptoms that are seen in HSP but the most common symptoms are as following:

  • Skin rashes or Purpura: The most common sign of HSP is appearance of reddish purple spots mainly on legs, buttocks and arms.

Ayurvedic Outlook

There are three main energies (vata, pitta and kapha) in the body which are responsible for good health. Imbalance of any three results in health complications. As per Ayurveda, HSP is due to imbalance of pitta in body which results in vitiation of rakta dhatu and mansa dhatu.

Ayurvedic Herbal Remedies for Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic and complex condition where recurrent discomfort or pain in the bladder or area surrounding pelvic region may occur and one feels the need to urinate repeatedly and urgently. Its occurrence is more common in women than in men and can have a long-term impact on quality of life.

It may significantly influence your lifestyle, work, emotional health and even relationships.

The symptoms can vary from person to person. It is also known as "painful bladder syndrome" or "bladder pain syndrome".

Long-term inflammation of the bladder in people with IC can usually have inflamed or irritated bladder walls which can cause scarring and stiffening of the bladder.

Some people may have pain without urgency or frequency. Others have urgency and frequency without pain. Women's symptoms often get worse during their periods. They may also have pain with sexual intercourse. But now we have an effective Ayurvedic Treatment for Interstitial Cystitis.

What are the Causes of Interstitial Cystitis?

Ayurveda has explained that Vata controls all the movements of body and brain in which, Apana vata is found in the lower pelvic area, and aids in proper filtration and excretion of menstruation, urine, stool. Other is pitta, it signifies heat. Irritated pitta dosha is responsible for burning sensation.

Aggravated Pitta and vata produce specific toxic elements which get collected in anal area, kidney, urethra and the pelvic area. Deposits of toxic elements generate pain, frequent urination and a burning sensation in urine.
