Herbal Remedies for Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Treatment

ESSENTIAL THROMBOCYTHEMIA (ETE)

Essential Thrombocythemia is a very rare disorder in which the body produces too many blood platelets which result in feeling of fatigue and lightheaded. This condition also increases the risk of blood clots.

This condition is more common in people which are over 50 years but younger people can develop this disorder too. This is more common in women as compared to men.

It is a chronic form of a disorder. Certain medicines are available that lowers the platelet count and blood thinners are available.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ESSENTIAL THROMBOCYTHEMIA?

There is not any noticeable symptom of essential thrombocytopenia. The first indication is the development of a blood clot which can develop anywhere in the body but with essential thrombocythemia, they occur most often in the brain, hands and feet.

Signs and Symptoms depend on where the clot forms. Symptoms include:

  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Headache
  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the hands or feet
  • Redness, throbbing or burning pain in the hands and feet.
  • Chest pain

Sometimes, essential thrombocythemia may cause bleeding if the platelet count is extremely high. Bleeding may take the form of:

  • Nosebleeds
  • Bloody stool
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding from the mouth or gums

If the blood clot occurs in the artery that supply blood to the brain, it may cause a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or stroke.

The signs and symptoms of a stroke or TIA develop suddenly and include:

  • Weakness or numbness usually on one side of the body.
  • Chest pain lasting for few minutes
  • Breathlessness
  • Difficulty in understanding or speaking speech
  • Blurred or double vision.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF ESSENTIAL THROMBOCYTHEMIA?

It is a type of chronic myeloproliferative disorder. The bone marrow, spongy tissue inside the bones makes too many of certain type of cells. In the case of essential thrombocythemia, bone marrow makes too many cells that create platelets.

A normal platelet count ranges from 1,50,000 – 4,50,000 platelets per microliter of blood. In essential thrombocythemia, there are 4,50,000 platelets per microliter of blood.

As a result, the excess platelets may not function normally leading to an abnormal clotting or bleeding.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT

If the blood count is above 4,50,000 platelets/microliter of blood. Blood tests will confirm the number of platelets, the size of platelets, activity of the platelets, iron levels, specific genetic flaws, markers of inflammation.

Herbal Remedies For Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

mild cognitive impairment

To have impairment in your thinking ability or to have confusion is a natural phenomenon happening when you start getting old. Decline in cognition power is a part of the normal aging process. If this impairment is a bit more than the expected decline, but not reached to a serious dementia, it is referred to as mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The problems related to memory, judgment, thinking ability and language will be greater than age related changes.

You may have a feeling of slipped mental function, but it can be more felt by your partner or relatives. But the condition is still so mild that it will never affect your day – to – day activities.

It is very difficult to predict the progress of mild cognitive impairment. Some patient may get a risk of developing more serious dementia with Alzheimer's disease or other severe neurological disorders. Some patients may be constant with the mild impairment and no chances of getting worse and for some lucky persons, it eventually gets better. Depending on the cause of cognitive impairment, it can be reversible or irreversible.

LIFESTYLE FACTORS

Lifestyle factors linked with an increased risk of cognitive changes include;

  • Diabetes
  • Smoking & alcohol
  • Elevated cholesterol level
  • High blood pressure
  • Infrequent participation in mentally and socially stimulating activities
  • Lack of physical exercise

CAUSES

Cases of reversible cognitive impairment include;

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Vitamin B12 deficiency
  • Poisoning due to heavy metals like lead
  • Drug toxicity
  • Drug interactions
  • Brain tumors
  • Building up of fluid in brain (hydrocephalus)
  • Chronic alcoholism
  • Encephalitis
  • HIV infections
  • Brain infections like meningitis or syphilis

If you take enough treatment for these causes, your cognition will get improved perfectly.

An irreversible cognitive impairment can be caused by;

  • Vascular problems – can result in the death of the brain cells due to a damage in blood vessels which prevents a normal blood flow to the brain
  • Very severe brain injury
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinsonism disease
  • It can be even due to genetic factors (hereditary)

In these cases, the mild cognitive impairment symptoms get worse and can eventually develop very severe dementia.

When to get old, your brain will undergo degenerative changes and you will notice a slight memory loss. You may find it difficult to recall a name or incident. Beyond this expectation, if there are any cognitive issues, it can be called as mild cognitive impairment.

  • More often memory loss – about social engagements or appointments
  • Due to this forgetfulness, they may repeat the same questions again and again
  • You may have a feeling of loss of thread of conversation, movie or books
  • You may communication problems – forget some words to finish the statement
  • You may find difficult to complete similar tasks – like cooking etc
  • You may have difficulty to find the way of your familiar surroundings
  • You may be more impulsive than you usually used to be
  • You may show increasingly poor judgment
  • Misplacing things
  • Quick mood changes and mood swings
  • Problems dealing with money
  • Loss of creativity
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Dyslexia (difficulty reading)
  • Dyscalculia (difficulty with mathematics)
  • Learning disabilities in general
  • Changes can be more noticeable to your relatives

When you start to get overwhelmed more by these changes, you may start experiencing

  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Apathy

HERBAL REMEDIES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF MILD COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT

Ayurveda, the science of life has its foundation in the theory of tridosha – vata, pitta and kapha. Each dosha exhibits diurnal variations and also varies according to phase of digestion and age. The life span of a human being consists of three phases, namely childhood, youth and old age. Among these, kapha is having predominance during childhood, pitta during youth and vata in old age.

Vata is the factor responsible for the changes in old age. If you have a greater aggravation of vata (especially prana vata) in old age than in normalcy, it may end up in mild cognitive impairment.

Medications which can improve your brain activities and enhance the mental functions are best suited in mild cognitive impairment. Planet Ayurveda offers some excellent herbal remedies which are guaranteed to be 100% natural with no added preservatives and chemicals. The care pack includes;

  1. Brahmi Capsules
  2. Gotukola Capsules

Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) Treatment in Ayurveda

FOCAL SEGMENTAL GLOMERULOSCLEROSIS (FSGS): OVERVIEW

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a kind of glomerular disease which is characterized by scarring (sclerosis) in the kidneys. The scarring generally occurs in small sections of the glomeruli --- the parts of the kidneys which are responsible for filtering waste from the body. Initially, only a limited number of glomeruli are damaged because of the scarring.

The scarring of the glomeruli in Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis can occur because of a number of reasons. The reasons behind the occurrence of FSGS categorize the disease into three types: (i) Primary FSGS, which occurs without any known cause; (ii) Secondary FSGS, which can be triggered by an infection, drug toxicity, or diseases which affect the whole body, like diabetes, sickle cell disease, lupus, or HIV infection; and (iii) Genetic FSGS, which is caused by genetic mutations.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is known by some other names also, such as ‘Focal glomerular sclerosis’ or ‘Focal nodular glomerulosclerosis.’

This disease can affect children as well as adults; with men at a slightly higher risk of developing the disease as compared to women. When the disease affects children and adolescents, it can lead to Nephrotic Syndrome (a set of symptoms which occur together and affect the kidneys); and, when it occurs in adults, it can lead to kidney failure.

FOCAL SEGMENTAL GLOMERULOSCLEROSIS (FSGS): SYMPTOMS

People affected by Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis may not show any particular symptoms of the disease in its early stages. Later, some affected individuals may notice some signs on their own, or the disease may be officially diagnosed by a doctor or healthcare provider.

Some of the common symptoms which are generally associated with the occurrence of Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis are:

  • Edema (swelling around the eyes and in the legs/ankles)
  • Proteinuria (foamy urine, due to high levels of protein in the urine)
  • Weight gain, because of accumulation of fluid in the body
  • High cholesterol levels (high levels of fat lipids in the blood)
  • Low protein levels in the blood.

In the advanced stage of FSGS, the symptoms of the disease are usually similar to those of kidney failure. These symptoms may include loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, headache, itchiness of skin, and shortness of breath.

FOCAL SEGMENTAL GLOMERULOSCLEROSIS (FSGS): TREATMENT

The treatment of Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis may be different for different patients because it largely depends on the cause of the disease. Some of the treatments for managing FSGS include: Corticosteroids (mostly called ‘Steroids’), Diuretics, Immunosuppressive drugs, ACE inhibitors and ARBs, Plasmapheresis, and Dietary changes. However, in advanced stages of the disease, the patients may be required to undergo Kidney transplant or Dialysis.

Some beneficial herbal products for managing the symptoms of Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis have been prepared by Ayurveda experts at Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company. These products are completely safe to use because they are prepared from 100% pure and natural herbs.

Ayurvedic Approach to Glioma - Types, Cause, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment

glioma

Glioma is a type of tumor occurs in the brain and spinal cord. It grows from glial cells. The function of glial cells is to supports nerve cells with energy and nutrients and helps to maintain the blood-brain barrier.

Tumors can develop in any part of the brain either its nerves or covering tissues.

TYPES

  • Primary
  • Secondary

Primary brain tumors are tumors which starts in the brain.

Secondary brain tumors are those which originate in another part of the body and then spread in the brain.

A glioma is a primary brain tumor, accounting for 45% of cancers that begin in.

Types of glial cells, each with different functions are:

  • Astrocyte – Its function is to transports nutrients and holds neurons in place.
  • Oligodendrocyte – Its function is to provide insulation (myelin) to neurons.
  • Microglia – It engulfs dead neurons and pathogens.
  • Ependymal Cells – It lines the ventricular system and secretes cerebrospinal fluid.

TYPES OF GLIOMA INCLUDE

  • Astrocytoma- It includes astrocytoma, anaplastic astrocytoma, and glioblastoma. These start in brain cells called astrocytes. Most of these brain tumors cannot be cured as they spread to normal blood tissues.
  • Ependymomas- It includes anaplastic ependymoma, myxopapillary ependymoma and subependymoma. It makes less than 2%of all brain tumors and less than 10% of all brain tumors in children. These tumors arise from ependymal cells and as they do not spread to other brain cells, it can easily be cured with surgery.
  • Oligodendrogliomas- It includes oligodendroglioma, anaplastic oligodendroglioma, and anaplastic oligoastrocytoma. It spreads like astrocytoma. As they spread slowly sometimes these tumors can be cured.

SYMPTOMS

Common signs and symptoms of gliomas include:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Confusion or a decline in brain function
  • Memory loss
  • Personality changes or irritability
  • Difficulty with balance
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vision problems, such as blurred vision, double vision or loss of peripheral vision.
  • Speech difficulties
  • Seizures, without any history of seizures.

"Symptoms vary by tumor type as well as the tumors size, location, and rate of growth".

  • Exposure to radiation - People exposed to radiations like ionizing radiation have an increased risk of brain tumor. Radiation therapy a type of ionizing radiation used to treat cancer. These radiation releases on exposure of atomic bombs.
  • Over use of cell phone can be one of the reasons for brain cancer.
  • The Family history of glioma- Having gliomas in family history increases the risk of developing it. It is rare that glioma runs in families.

GRADING

  • Grade 1 includes pilocystic astrocytoma and is more common in children. These tumor grows slowly and can be removed by surgery.
  • Grade 2 are diffuse astrocytoma and are low grade.
  • Grade 3 gliomas are diffuse and called anaplastic astrocytoma. They are considered high grade.
  • Grade 4 is glioblastoma are considered as high grade. These are fast growing, aggressive and difficult to treat.
