Myelofibrosis Treatment in Ayurveda

There is a 'can' in cancer because we can beat it! Myelofibrosis or osteomyelofibrosis is a type of bone marrow cancer. It is basically a group of rare cancers that affects the bone marrow. In this type the marrow is substituted with a scar tissue which hampers the process of forming healthy blood cells. It can be categorized as chronic leukemia. It is currently classified as a myeloproliferative neoplasm, in which the proliferation of an abnormal clone of hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow and other sites results in fibrosis, or the replacement of the marrow with scar tissue. Cancer starts affecting the immune system. Though, the immune system helps to fight cancer but eventually cancer weakens the immune system.

AYURVEDIC VIEW POINT ON MYELOFIBROSIS

Cancer cells are always present in the body. Ayurveda, has a unique vision concerning the mechanism that prevents the growth of cancer cells in the human body. Ayurveda is based on three doshas which are Vata, pitta and Kapha. These three doshas or energies are known to maintain equilibrium in the human physiology. According to Ayurveda the capacity to respond to stress factors, physical and mental, are related to the inherent strength of the individual. Immunity is the result of both inherent strength (Bala), proper metabolism that creates an active distilled cellular nutrient extract (Ojas) that supports all organic functions and enzyme activity. Immunity represents both the totality and interrelationship of these three Ayurvedic concepts.

Going by the Ayurvedic point of view immune response is dependent on twenty-one factors three doshas, two forms of Bala, two forms of Ojas, thirteen groups of Agni and Ama. From this we can assume that the possible number of interactions for these twenty-one factors is very large. Thus, immunity in Ayurveda is a complex response of the organism involving a number of systems and functions supported by inherent factors and developing factors. It also causes vitiation of Rakta (blood) dhatu, asthi (bone) dhatu and Majja (bone marrow) dhatu.
