Ayurvedic Herbal Remedies for Agoraphobia Treatment

ABOUT AGORAPHOBIA

Agoraphobia is a kind of anxiety disorder in which an individual shows an extreme evasion of situations which can potentially lead to panic.

The term 'Agoraphobia' is a combination of two words --- 'Agora' which is a Greek word that refers to a place of assembly or market place; and 'phobia' which means fear. As such, the sufferers of Agoraphobia mostly have a hard time feeling safe in public places where there are large crowds.

In other words, people suffering from Agoraphobia anxiety disorder generally fear or avoid certain places and situations which they feel can trigger a panic attack. These places or situations may include use of public transportation, being in a crowded or enclosed place, being outside alone, or standing in a queue. This avoidance of situations and places by the sufferers of Agoraphobia typically results from the feeling of getting trapped or the fear of not being able to get help.

Most of the sufferers of Agoraphobia develop this disorder after suffering from one or more panic attacks in a particular situation. As such, they tend to avoid the possibility of another panic attack in the places or situations where it had previously happened; and they often need a friend, relative or any other companion to accompany them when they go to public places. The occurrence of Agoraphobia is more commonly reported in women as compared to men; with teenagers and young adults most affected by this disorder.

The treatment of Agoraphobia is usually very challenging because it mainly deals with helping the sufferers confront their fears about situations and places which can cause panic.

CAUSES OF AGORAPHOBIA

Though it is very difficult to pinpoint the exact causes which lead to the Agoraphobia anxiety disorder, some of the possible reasons for the development of this disorder include:

  • Genetics
  • Temperament
  • Environmental stress
  • Health conditions, and
  • Learning experiences.

SYMPTOMS OF AGORAPHOBIA

Some of the most common indications of Agoraphobia disorder are:

  • Pounding heartbeat and rapid breathing
  • Feeling of getting choked or difficulty in breathing
  • Nausea or dizziness
  • Pain or pressure in the chest
  • Numbness, trembling, or shaking
  • Excessive sweating
  • Upset stomach or diarrhoea
  • Sudden flushing or chills
  • Feeling a loss of control
  • Fear of death.

RISK FACTORS FOR AGORAPHOBIA

There are certain factors which can potentially put a person at a high risk of Agoraphobia anxiety disorder. These risk factors are:

  • Any other phobia or panic disorder
  • Response to panic attacks with avoidance or excessive fear
  • A nervous or anxious temperament
  • Experiencing traumatic events in life, such as death of a parent, abuse, or attack
  • Feeling of isolation
  • Drug abuse or alcohol addiction
  • Blood relation affected by Agoraphobia.

COMPLICATIONS LINKED TO AGORAPHOBIA

Agoraphobia is a condition which can restrict the life activities of a person to a great extent, making it difficult for him/her to undertake routine day-to-day activities like visiting friends or relatives, running errands, and going to work or school. Hence, in severe cases of Agoraphobia, the sufferer of the condition may remain homebound for years, completely dependent on others for help.

In addition, Agoraphobia can also be associated with a few other complications, including:

  • Anxiety disorders or other mental health disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Depression
  • Alcohol or drug abuse.

TREATMENT OF AGORAPHOBIA

The line of treatment generally prescribed by doctors for treating patients of Agoraphobia chiefly includes the use of medications and psychotherapy, to help the patients deal with the symptoms of the disorder and lead an enjoyable, anxiety-free life.

For managing the symptoms of Agoraphobia, the recommended dosage of Ashwagandha capsules is: 1-2 capsules twice a day, with plain water, after meals.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Bone Marrow Leakage

ABOUT BONE MARROW LEAKAGE

Bone Marrow Leakage is a condition in which a broken bone causes the fat tissue from the bone marrow -- the body's biggest producer of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets -- to leak into blood, and subsequently be carried all the way through the body via the bloodstream.

Fat tissue is one of the parts of the bone marrow, which is the soft, spongy tissue that is located within the hollow shafts of bones. At the place of the location of the bone marrow, a sponge-like network -- formed with fibrous tissue -- provides support to "primitive" cells called hematopoietic stem cells. The main sites of the bone marrow in the body are middle of the chest (sternum), the thigh bone (femur) and the hip bone (pelvis). Fat tissue is the main part of the bone marrow in the longer bones of the body, while it is comparatively much less is smaller bones.

The Bone Marrow Leakage problem generally does not lead to any other ailments, though it can be the causative factor behind a condition known as fat embolism syndrome (FES). The occurrence of FES is mainly an after-effect of major trauma which leads to the breakage of one or more large bones.

Although FES is a very rare condition resulting from Bone Marrow Leakage, it can lead to serious complications, like severe lung problems, seizures, drowsiness, and coma.

CAUSES OF BONE MARROW LEAKAGE

Some of the key reasons which can result in Bone Marrow Leakage are:

  • Breakage of bones / fractures
  • Trauma related to total joint replacement of the hip and knee
  • Bone grafting, leg-length correction operations and other surgical procedures in which the central section of long bones containing bone marrow is affected.

SYMPTOMS OF BONE MARROW LEAKAGE

The common indications of Bone Marrow Leakage include:

  • Fat tissue enters blood stream after leaking from bone marrow
  • Damage to the Lung function if fat tissue reaches the lungs
  • Low count of platelets
  • Complications with the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) if fat tissue reaches the brain
  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) -- sudden failure of the respiratory system -- in severe cases.

TREATMENT OF BONE MARROW LEAKAGE

The line of treatment generally followed by doctors for Bone Marrow Leakage patients is to minimize the symptoms of the condition, and to clear the fat tissue from circulation in the body by providing supportive care.

In case of patients suffering from FES due to Bone Marrow Leakage, doctors mostly recommend some common therapies, like stabilizing the broken bones, managing blood pressure, and assisting the patients with breathing by using a ventilator (in severe cases). In order to prevent the development of Bone Marrow Leakage into FES, the chief concern of the doctors is to quickly immobilize the broken bones.

For the benefit of the people affected by Bone Marrow Leakage, Ayurvedic experts have prepared some very useful herbal formulations. These formulations basically strengthen the bones, so that Bone Marrow Leakage can be prevented. However, if Bone Marrow Leakage occurs, the herbal formulations can be used for effectively managing the condition, so that the risk of FES is eliminated for the patients.

Ayurvedic treatment of MSA disease (Multiple System Atrophy)

ABOUT MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY (MSA)

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare, neurodegenerative disorder in which the autonomic (involuntary) functions of the body -- including internal functions like breathing, blood pressure, muscle control, digestion and bladder function -- and the body movement are affected.

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a progressive condition which leads to the atrophy (shrinkage) and deterioration of some parts of the brain, including cerebellum, brainstem, and basal ganglia. These parts are mainly responsible for regulating the internal autonomic functions of the body.

Several parts of the body are affected by Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), in which the affected people undergo a progressive loss of motor function. This condition typically develops in adulthood, generally by people aged between 50 and 60 years. Since this condition progresses gradually over time, it causes increasing difficulty for the affected people to carry out their day-to-day activities, and they are eventually confined to bed.

Multiple System Atrophy

There is no permanent cure for Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) because this condition does not go into remission. As such, the treatment of this disorder chiefly pertains to medications and lifestyle changes which can be useful in managing its symptoms.

CAUSES OF MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY (MSA)

The exact cause of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is still not known. Most of the cases of this disorder are 'sporadic', that is, they have a random occurrence. According to some researchers, this disorder is probably caused by a genetic component or by environmental toxins; but these theories have not yet been proved.

However, one of the distinguishing features of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is the build-up of a protein called alpha-synuclein in 'glia' --- the cells which provide support to nerve cells in the brain. More specifically, the accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein occurs in 'oligodendroglia', a cell which forms a coating on nerve cells to enable them to speedily conduct electrical signals.

SYMPTOMS OF MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY (MSA)

One of the primary signs of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is 'postural (orthostatic) hypotension', a kind of low blood condition in which a person feels dizzy or lightheaded -- or may even faint -- while standing up from a sitting or lying down position.

In addition to orthostatic hypotension, some of the other general symptoms of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) are:

  • Slowness of movement
  • Lack of coordination
  • Stiffness of muscles
  • Tremors
  • Impaired speech
  • A hoarse, quivering voice
  • Constipation and loss of bladder control
  • Reduced production of sweat, saliva and tears
  • Sexual dysfunction like loss of libido
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Difficulty in controlling emotions.

Based on the symptoms of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), the condition is divided into two types:

  • Parkinsonian type (MSA-P)
  • Cerebellar type (MSA-C).

DIAGNOSIS OF MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY (MSA)

For the diagnosis of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), doctors first perform a brief neurological exam of the potential patient and take a clinical history; and then order several tests which include:

  • Autonomic testing (such as heart rate control and blood pressure control)
  • Assessment of bladder function
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET scan)
  • DaTscan.

TREATMENT OF MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY (MSA)

The line of treatment for Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) patients chiefly revolves around medications and other solutions which can be beneficial for them in coping with the disorder.

For that purpose, Ayurvedic formulations prepared from pure and natural herbs can be very effective. As per Ayurveda, this condition involves an imbalance of the 'Vata' energy of the body. Due to the deranged 'Vata' energy, this condition slowly and progressively damages most parts of the sufferer's body.

Some of the most useful herbal formulations for the benefit of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) patients are:

1. Brahmi Capsules:

These capsules are prepared from the standardized extract of 'Brahmi' (Bacopa monnieri) herb. This herb has been known since ancient times for its capacity to enhance memory power and brain function. It can keep the brain healthy, boost memory, improve concentration, and manage blood pressure, stress and anxiety. It has anti-oxidant and anti-anxiety properties, and keeps the body strong and healthy.

The recommended dosage of Brahmi capsules recommended for the patients of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is: two capsules with plain water two times a day, after meals.

2. Arjuna Capsules:

For preparing these capsules, the bark extract of the 'Arjuna' herb (Terminalia arjuna) is used. This herb has proven capabilities in managing major heart problems as well as metabolic diseases which can potentially lead to heart weakness and heart failure. This powerful herb for heart care is considered a natural remedy for treating high cholesterol, blocked coronary arteries, blood pressure, high triglycerides, and congestive heart failure.

3. Gotukola Capsules:

‘Gotukola’ herbal extract (Centella asiatica) used for preparing these capsules is an excellent herb for balancing the body’s three energies --- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Moreover, it can also balance the psychic energies of the body --- Satva, Rajas and Tamas. The use of Gotukola capsules can improve brain health, promote healthy blood circulation, maintain healthy metabolism, and manage depression, anxiety, and stress.

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) patients should take 1-2 Gotukola capsules two times a day with plain water, 30 minutes after meals.

4. Ashwagandha Capsules:

These capsules are also a wonderful herbal formulation for the patients of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). Prepared from the standardized extract of 'Ashwagandha' herb (Withania somnifera), these capsules can relax the muscles and enhance mental capabilities. Moreover, this herbal product is also recommended for treatment of nervous breakdown, ageing, anxiety, stress, palpitations, and debilitating disorders.

Patients of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) should take one Ashwagandha capsule with plain water two times a day.

5. Curcumin Capsules:

Curcumin capsules are prepared from pure and natural extracts of the 'Haridra' herb (Curcuma longa). This herb -- commonly known as turmeric or haldi -- contains a bioactive compound called 'Curcumin,' and is widely known for its anti-inflammatory and blood-purification properties. It can reduce inflammation and treat microbial infections.

For the patients of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), two Curcumin capsules are recommended with plain water, twice a day.

CONCLUSION

Ayurvedic formulations can be extremely beneficial for Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) patients in coping with their degenerative condition, and also in the prevention of some possible complications like breathing abnormalities while sleeping, breakdown of skin due to progressive immobility, injuries from falls resulting from poor balance, difficulty in swallowing, and vocal cord paralysis.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Paraphimosis

Paraphimosis is a urologic emergency condition which affects uncircumcised or partially circumcised males. In this condition, the foreskin of the penis remains retracted for an extended period of time, and cannot be pulled forward over the tip of the penis. To put it differently, the retracted foreskin remains stuck behind the head of the penis, and cannot be returned to its normal anatomic position.

Paraphimosis is a serious and painful condition which can lead to swelling, edema, venous occlusion, and even arterial occlusion. Since this condition leads to the constriction of the foreskin and affects the arterial flow to the glans plans, it can result in some severe infection or an injury to the tip of the penis, or even gangrene and amputation of the glans penis.

As such, whenever uncircumcised or partially circumcised males suspect that they may be affected by Paraphimosis, they should seek a urology consultation immediately, so that the condition can be evaluated and diagnosed properly. Prompt attention to Paraphimosis and timely treatment of the condition can prevent potential complications such as anxiety, stress, pain and discomfort during intercourse, and scarring or bleeding of the tissue due to forced attempts to pull the foreskin to its normal position.

CAUSES OF PARAPHIMOSIS

The most common cause behind the occurrence of Paraphimosis is that the foreskin of the affected males is not returned to its normal position by a medical practitioner after conducting a physical exam or a surgical procedure like inserting a catheter.

In addition, there are some other causes which can lead to Paraphimosis. These causes are:

  • Infections which scar the foreskin
  • Injury to the genital area
  • Forceful pulling back of the foreskin
  • Tight or less stretchy foreskin
  • Pulling back the foreskin for long duration
  • Mishandling of the foreskin
  • Poor hygiene
  • Medical conditions like Diabetes
  • Vigorous sexual activity, and
  • Other penis ailments like Phimosis.

SYMPTOMS OF PARAPHIMOSIS

Since Paraphimosis basically makes it difficult for affected males to return the foreskin to its normal position over the tip of the penis, the most common symptoms of this serious and painful condition are:

  • Foreskin gets stuck in retracted position
  • Swelling and pain in the penis tip
  • Foreskin becomes too tight
  • Penis tip becomes bluish in colour due to insufficient blood flow.

DIAGNOSIS OF PARAPHIMOSIS

For an initial diagnosis of Paraphimosis, doctors generally carry out a physical examination of the penis and foreskin of the affected males, and ask them a few questions related to the problems being experienced by them.

Thereafter, the doctors may also check the complete medical history of the affected males, and may ask them undergo blood and urine tests for a formal confirmation of Paraphimosis.

TREATMENT OF PARAPHIMOSIS

The treatment of Paraphimosis, first and foremost, involves the controlling of pain and swelling in the tip of the penis; and draining out blood or pus with the help of needles. In some severe cases, doctors may need to make a small cut in order to relieve tension. Overall, the treatment of Paraphimosis depends on the severity of the patient's condition and the age of the patients.

For managing the symptoms of Paraphimosis, certain herbal formulations can be very effective because renowned Ayurvedic experts use pure and natural herbs, with immense medicinal value, for preparing the formulations. Some of the main herbal formulations which can help manage Paraphimosis include:

Ayurvedic Treatment of IPF (Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis)

ABOUT IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS (IPF)

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition in which the lungs get scarred progressively, with the result that the sufferer's breathing process gets affected significantly over a period of time. The gradual build-up of the scar tissue -- 'fibrosis' -- causes the sufferer's lungs to become stiff, thick and less expandable; thereby affecting their ability to inflate and take in sufficient oxygen from the air.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a lung disease which falls in the category of 'Interstitial Lung Diseases' (ILDs). There are over 200 lung diseases categorized as ILDs, with the word 'Interstitial' implying that these diseases affect the 'interstitium' --- the tissue and space which provide support to the air sacs in the lungs. As such, IPF and other ILDs do not affect the blood vessels or the airways directly.

In the case of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in particular, damage from external particles lead to the hardening of the 'alveoli' --- the small air sacs of the lungs. The occurrence of this lung disease has been diagnosed in people of almost all age-groups, though it more commonly affects people who are over 50 years of age. Moreover, men are generally at a higher risk of the disease as compared to women.

RISK FACTORS OF IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS (IPF)

Since 'Idiopathic' means 'cause not known', there is still no clear understanding of the exact causes of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. However, there are some risk factors -- other than 'male' sex and 50+ age -- which are generally linked to this lung disease. These risk factors are:

  • Hereditary factors (family history of an ILD)
  • Heartburn or Acid reflux from the stomach (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
  • Certain viruses, including the herpes virus, Epstein Barr virus, and hepatitis C
  • Environmental factors like exposure to dust from wood, stone, metal, or textiles; or from farming and cattle-breeding.
  • Cigarette smoking.

SYMPTOMS OF IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS (IPF)

There are two main indications of the possible occurrence of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. These are:

  • Dyspnea (that is, breathlessness or shortness of breath)
  • Chronic cough (dry cough which lasts for more than two months).

In addition, to these two major symptoms of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, some of the other symptoms of this disease include:

  • Fatigue
  • Joint and muscle pains
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Chest pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • ‘Clubbing’ of fingers (change in shape of fingers).

DIAGNOSIS OF IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS (IPF)

For diagnosing Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, doctors initially examine the medical and family history of the patients, along with their work history. This is done to ascertain whether the disease is caused due to genetic or environmental factors. Thereafter, some tests are carried out to confirm the diagnosis of the disease. These tests include the following:

  • Blood tests
  • Chest X-ray
  • Breathing tests
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Biopsy
  • Spirometer
  • Pulse oximetry and arterial blood gas tests.

TREATMENT OF IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS (IPF)

The symptoms of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis can be effectively managed with the help of potent herbal formulations offered by Ayurvedic experts. These herbal formulations are prepared from pure and standardized extracts of herbs; and do not contain any chemicals, artificial colours, starch or preservatives. Since these formulations are mostly prepared under the expert guidance of renowned Ayurvedic doctors, they have proven effectiveness in managing Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other ILDs.

Tulsi capsules are prepared from the pure and natural extracts of the Tulsi herb which is widely known for its anti-microbial properties, as well as its usefulness in fighting against infections, and relieving the common ILD symptoms like breathlessness and dry cough.

Patients suffering from lung diseases like Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis should take 1-2 Tulsi capsules two times a day, after meals.

2. Curcumin Capsules:

Another beneficial herbal product which can manage the symptoms of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is Curcumin capsules. To prepare these capsules, a powerful herb called Curcumin (Curcuma longa) is used. These capsules can safely be used for controlling chronic cough, shortness of breath, and other symptoms of this lung disease.

To manage Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, patients are generally advised to take 2 Curcumin capsules with plain water twice a day, after meals.

3. Cap. Aller-G Care:

This herbal formulation is also an excellent product which can be used for managing Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other ILDs. For preparing these capsules, a number of herbs with proven anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties are used. These herbs -- which can make the lungs and the immune system healthy -- include Neem (Azadirachta indica), Ashwagandha (Withania sominefera), Haridra (Curcuma longa), and Shirish (Albezzia lebbock).

For treating ILDs like Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, 1 or 2 Aller G Care capsules should be taken twice a day, after meals.

4. Giloy Capsules:

Prepared from the pure extracts of the Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) herb, these capsules are extremely effective in managing diseases related to the lungs. The Giloy herb, with its anti-microbial and healing properties, strengthens the immune system and also relieves the symptoms of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other ILDs.

The recommended dosage of Giloy capsules for managing lung diseases is 1 capsule with plain water after meals, twice daily.

5. Praanrakshak Churna:

This amazing herbal powder is prepared from several useful and powerful herbs which provide support to the respiratory system, and make the immune system healthy. These herbs -- which have anti-microbial properties and can heal the lung tissues -- include: Anantmool (Tylphora asthmatica), Vasa (Adhatoda vasica), Kantkari (Solanum xanthocarpum), Mulethi (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Bharangi (Clerodandrum serratum), Shirish (Albezzia lebbock), and Twak (Cinnnamomum zeylanica).

For managing the symptoms of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other ILDs, Praanrakshak Churna should be taken two times a day, after breakfast and dinner, in the following way: Boil 1 teaspoon of the churna in 400ml water till around 50ml of water remains. Allow the water to cool to room temperature; then strain and drink it. Prepare a fresh decoction of the churna and water every day.

Along with the above-mentioned herbal formulations for managing Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the patients of this lung disease should also take care of some other important things. Most importantly, they avoid cigarette smoking and tobacco, and should exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Hepatic Steatosis

The normal liver weighs 1.4 to 1.5kg in males and 1.2 to 1.4kg in females. Size of liver in males is 10.5cm and in females is 7cm but, when its size increase 5 to 10 percent of normal, it leads to Hepatic Steatosis.

People that drink lots of alcohol are more prone to this disease. In alcoholic people, liver changes its way to breakdown and stores fats in the body. Among this you can have more chance of Alcoholic Steatosis if you are obese, consuming more iron in body and suffering from Hepatitis C. If a person is chronic alcoholic, it produces toxic metabolites that cause hepatic steatosis.

2) Non-Alcoholic Steatosis:

The reason behind this condition may be due to genetic factor, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, malnutrition, viral hepatitis, weight loss, medications or bacteria in small intestines. In late pregnancy hepatic steatosis may occur in some case.

Ayurvedic treatment of Vasculitis (Wegener's granulomatosis)

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis, eons ago called Wegener's granulomatosis, is an estate which is associated with nose, sinuses, throat, kidneys and lungs. In this chronic disease, blood vessels of involved regions become inflamed, particularly known as vasculitis. No one knows the exact reason behind it, it is assumed as an autoimmune disorder in which the body's defense system attacks and destroys its own normal cells and tissues. Specifically 'granulomas' are found in the affected tissues as these are localized nodular collections of abnormal inflammatory cells. That's why this disease is termed as Granulomatosis, which refers to the presence of granulomas. It is common in all age groups including children but mostly occurs in middle-aged or older people.

Inflammation can affect various parts of the body such as respiratory tract including nostrils, windpipe, sinuses etc. It can even damage the organs as inflamed blood vessels cause the disrupted blood flow to the organs.

This disease is rare due to which sometimes it becomes difficult to determine the exact frequency of the disease. But with authentic diagnosis and treatment, this dilemma can be paralyzed to some extent.

If there are chronic diseases around us then god has given us cures of these turbulences as well. Ayurvedic herbs, other medications, yogic exercises etc. are proved to be a boon to mankind. This health illness is very serious but can be kept under control if one uses these magical, mystical techniques, and can lead normal life.

Depending upon the body parts affected, Vasculitis (Wegener's granulomatosis) causes a range of syndromes, these include –

  • General evidences are fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, joint pain, weight loss and high temperature.
  • Marks associated with nose, ear and throat are nosebleeds, crusts around the nostrils, blocked or running nose, face pain, earache and hearing loss.
  • Cough doesn’t go away in this body illness, it is related with lungs problems, moreover includes wheezing, chest pain and shortness of breath.
  • Renal disorders such as hypertension, glomerulonephritis i.e. inflammation of the kidneys and blood in urine.
  • Skin related obstacles are rashes, lumps and little purple spots.
  • Eye problems like conjunctivitis (irritated eyes), swollen eyelids and blurred vision.
  • Gut related symptoms such as diarrhea, stomach pain and blood in poo.

If it is diagnosed lately or left untreated then it might lead to permanent damage to some parts of the body. Let me explain you with an example; if Granulomas are found in nose, then it can permanently change the shape of the nose. Nasal ulcerations and even bloody nasal discharge can happen.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Renovascular Hypertension

Renovascular Hypertension is also called 'Renal Hypertension'. It is a condition in which High blood pressure (greater than 130/80 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.

Renovascular hypertension (RVH) is the form of secondary hypertension. In this some people have hypertension due to sleep apnea, obesity, thyroid problem.

BASIC MECHANISM OF RENOVASCULAR HYPERTENSION

Renin Angiotensin system (RAS) or Renin–Angiotensin Aldosterone system (RAAS) is a hormone system that is involved in the regulation of the arterial blood pressure. When the renal blood flow reduced, then kidneys convert Prorenin (protein) into Renin. Renin breaks into small plasma protein known as Angiotensin II Angiotensin II stimulates the secretion of the hormone aldosterone from the adrenal cortex. If the RAAS is excessively active, blood volume increases resulting blood pressure becomes too high. There are many drugs that interrupt different steps in this system to lower blood pressure.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF RENAL HYPERTENSION?

When the arteries which carry blood to your kidneys becomes narrow, less blood flows to the kidneys. It releases hormones that tell the body to hold on to more salt and water. This causes your blood pressure to rise.

The most common cause of renal hypertension is:

  • Atherosclerosis (i.e. deposition of sticky, fatty substance called plaque on the inner lining of arteries.)
  • Fibro muscular dysplasia (i.e. this condition is caused by abnormal growth of cells in the walls of the arteries. This also leads to narrowing or blockage of these arteries.)

SYMPTOMS OF RENAL HYPERTENSION

Symptoms of severely elevated blood pressure include:

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Bloody (pink-colored) urine
  • Nosebleed

DIAGNOSTIC TEST
