Ayurvedic Treatment for The Sharp Syndrome- Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD)

The Sharp Syndrome, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, MCTD

I battle against my body. Life's journey with autoimmune diseases is unpleasant as the body attacks itself. The Sharp Syndrome – one more name in the list of autoimmune disorders. Though there is no permanent cure but with the help of herbs in Ayurveda, it is manageable.

The sharp syndrome "Mixed connective-tissue disease (MCTD)" was firstly acknowledged by Sharp and colleagues (1972) in patients with the overlying clinical features of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Scleroderma, and Myositis. It is an autoimmune disorder in which our immune system attacks healthy cells by mistake. For the people having mixed connective tissue disease, Ribonucleoprotein (RNP) antibody is found in blood tests.

THESE ARE EARLY INDICATIONS OF THE SHARP SYNDROME "MIXED CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASE"

  • Increased fatigue
  • Mild fever
  • Raynaud's phenomenon - It is the condition in which fingers become pale, tingle, numb, blue, and white in response to cold or stress.
  • Impairment of lungs functions like shortness of breath.
  • Joint inflammation (arthritis)
  • Swollen hands

  • Heartburn

Important Note
If you've already been diagnosed with lupus or another connective tissue disease and there is impairment in daily routine work, then do visit your doctor.

TREATMENT OF THE SHARP SYNDROME "MIXED CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASE" IN AYURVEDA

In every individual's body there are three doshas – vata, pitta and kapha which are in balanced state represent good health. But imbalance in any of three energies result in the diseases. According to Ayurveda cause of The Sharp Syndrome is increased vata dosha with vitiated kapha dosha.

Cause of auto immune disorders in Ayurveda is lack of cellular communication or recognition. Interruption in communication is due to accumulation of ama (toxins) which is caused by the low agni (digestive fire). Hence root causes of auto-immune disorders are low agni and weak ojas. Ayurveda treatment emphases on restoring agni and ojas. Inherent properties of herbs are used to eliminate the toxins and improve the digestive fire. Herbs like Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Gotu kola (Centella asiatica), Shallaki (Boswellia curcumin), Haridra (Curcuma longa) help to boost up the immune system. On the other hand, they help in the removal of toxins (ama) from body. Ayurvedic treatment for The Sharp Syndrome is fruitful without resulting any negative impacts on health.

Tinnitus (Ringing in the ears) Treatment in Ayurveda

Tinnitus is the condition, where an individual perceives a ringing sensation or a sensation of noise in ears. It is quite a common disorder. And, it affects almost every single individual out of 5 people. It is not a complication itself. However, it is a symptom of some of the complications like ear injury, hearing loss due to age or complication in cardio vascular system. Though it is not a serious issue, yet it is bothersome to a huge extent. And, it gets worsened further with age. However, the condition can improve with medications and treatments.

TYPES OF TINNITUS

Tinnitus is basically of two major types. These are as follows:

1. Subjective Tinnitus

It is a condition where only the patient can hear. It is supposed to be the most common type of disorder. It is caused due to the complications in the outer, middle or inner ear. Some other causes of the disorder is the complication in the auditory nerve or other parts of the brain, which interpret the signals of the nerve as sound.

2. Objective Tinnitus

It is a type of tinnitus, where the doctor can also hear the ringing sound while carrying out an examination. This is a rare type. And, it is caused by the complication in the blood vessels, condition of the middle ear bone and muscular contractions as well.

MAJOR CAUSES OF TINNITUS

There are a number of serious health conditions, which give rise to the condition of tinnitus. Though, the exact cause is hard to find, but the common cause of this condition is damage of the cells of the inner ear. The delicate, tiny hairs of the inner ear make movement due to the pressure created by the sound waves. This situation triggers the ear cells and release electric signal through the auditory nerves (nerve from the ear) to the brain. The brain then interprets this signal as the sound. If these hairs are broken, there occurs a leakage of the electric impulses randomly to the brain. And, this often leads to tinnitus. Age related hearing complication, too much exposure to the loud noise, blockages of the ear wax, changes in ear bones, injuries, chronic health complications and other related ear complications are some of the common causes of this disorder. Some other causes of this disorder are the disorders related to temporomandibular joint on the sides of the head in front of the ears, Meniere's disorder, accoustic neuroma and injuries on the neck and the head. The disorder may be caused due to disorders related to the blood vessels, which include atherosclerosis, neck tumor, high blood pressure, arteriovenous malformation, irregular and turbulent blood flow. And, disorder due to complications in blood vessels is known as the Pulsatile tinnitus. This is a rare condition.

COMMON SYMPTOMS OF TINNITUS

Tinnitus gives rise to the irritating feeling of hearing a tingling sensation always even in the absence of the external sound. The various types of symptoms include the noises of ringing, buzzing, clicking, roaring and hissing sounds. The pitch of the noise may vary and it may happen that you may hear it in both the ears or only in one ear. It may come and vanish from time to time or may be present all throughout the time.

AYURVEDIC CONCEPT OF TINNUTIS

According to Ayurveda, Tinnutis is known as Karnanada. It is basically a sign of disturbance of prana vayu, which is a subdosha of the Vata element of the body. It is caused due to the imbalance of the Vata disorder. It is basically vata that is related to the perception of different sounds.
