Wheat Allergy - Ayurvedic Treatment for Wheat Allergy - Celiac Disease - Coeliac Disease

According to Ayurveda the allergy is nothing but lack of energy, due to the imbalance of tridosha i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

According to modern system of medicine, there are 4 types of allergens, namely - ALBUMINS, GLOBULINS, PROLAMINS, GLUTELINS

Within wheat prolamins are called gliadins and glutelins are called glutenins. These two protein groups form the classic glutens. While gluten is a causative agent of Coeliac disease (CD), coeliac disease can be contrasted to gluten allergy by the involvement of different immune cells and antibody types and because the list of allergens extend beyond the classic gluten category of proteins.

Wheat allergy is an auto-immune disease which causes reaction to proteins (especially gluten) found in wheat. The immune system of a person having wheat allergy develops a specific antibody, a disease-fighting agent, to the wheat protein. Besides environmental factors, genetic factors are also responsible for the ailment.

Symptoms of Wheat Allergy

Common symptoms of a wheat allergy include eczema (atopic dermatitis), hives (urticaria), asthma, "Hay fever" (allergic rhinitis), angioedema (tissue swelling due to fluid leakage from blood vessels), abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting.

Rarer symptoms include anaphylactic shock, arthritis, bloated stomach, chest pains, depression or mood swings, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, joint and muscle aches and pains, palpitations, psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), swollen throat or tongue, tiredness and lethargy, and unexplained cough. Reactions may become more severe with repeated exposure.

How to Reduce Creatinine Levels in Blood

There are many reasons for increased creatinine and urea levels in the blood. Urea and creatinine are the endotoxins usually caused by reduced excretion of the protein metabolism end products via urine.

The BUN ratio - (The Blood Urea Nitrogen) The BUN ratio is the term used for the ratio of two serum laboratory values, the blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and serum creatinine (Cr). The BUN ratio helps to diagnose if the cause is due to damage to kidney due to kidney disease (intrarenal diseases) or pre-renal or post-renal causes.

Reduce Creatinine Levels, Herbal Remedies, Ayurvedic Treatment, Causes, Supplements, Reduce Creatinine Levels in Blood

Increased urea and creatinine are mainly caused by renal failure or decreased kidney function. There is specific Ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure and to Avoid dialysis naturally. Kidneys work as filters in our body. Filtering the toxins out from our body and cleansnig the blood. If the kidneys are not working properly due to Diabetic nephropathy, Renal artery stenosis (genetic or due to chronic blood pressure) and other kidney diseases like renal cysts, malignancies, tumors, drugs and others.

Diet In Renal Failure – No Specific Diet Actually

In renal failure there is actually no specific diet as it has to be customized according to your requirements. There are some basic things which need to be understood to get the best results. The renal dietician or a doctor or a nutritionist should always be consulted for a proper renal diet as per your condition.

Water Intake - The water intake can be upto 6-8 glasses per day in case there is no accumulation of water in the body. Swelling in feet, face is the sign that shows there is water retention in the body and water is accumulating in the body and kidneys are not able to remove excess water from the body. So the water intake needs to be limited and under guidance of a doctor in this case. If there is no swelling in the body and the urine output is normal, then the water intake can be 6-8 glasses or even more in case of increased creatinine levels. It helps to reduce creatinine levels naturally.

Fluid Intake - Other fluids also contain water. So you don't really need to reduce the fluid intake if you are not on dialysis or the urine output is not decreased and normal. Infact in this situation the fluid intake should be more to clear out things. If on dialysis, the water intake and other fluid intake should be restricted an as per the dietician's advice.

Non-Veg Diet - Usually the proteins are not recommended in kidney failure. If the patient is on haemodialysis then slightly higher intake of proteins.

Animal Protein - meat, fish, cheese, eggs, milk, and Vegetable proteins - nuts, pulses (beans, lentils etc), tofu is recommended. The higher intake is about 100-120 gm per day and the low intake is about 40-50 gm per day.

Salt (Sodium) – Salty food contains a lot of salt. So no need to take extra salt. Salt usually causes water retention. If you drink water and you have already taken salt, the water is going to get logged in your body. So reduce the salt intake. The lower limit is about 2-3 grams, so this much is ok per day (including the salt in your food). If you already have water retention (signs- swollen feet, ascites, swollen abdomen, swollen face) then other lo salt options should be tried.

Potassium – Potassium is usually high in patients in severe renal failure and dialysis. The potassium intake actually can not be really restricted as almost all healthy foods contain potassium. It is mostly found in green vegetables, almost all the fruits, vegetables, Potatoes (especially fried or baked). So one can not practially stop eating everything. So I would recommend to take fruits and vegetables and proteins in moderation. Boiling the vegetables, potatoes also helps a lot in this situation.

Phosphate - Too much phosphate in the blood (hyperphosphataemia) usually becomes a significant problem in the later stages of renal failure (stages 4 and 5 CKD, usually less than 20% kidney function). The problem continues for most dialysis patients, as dialysis does not remove enough phosphate unless it is very frequent or intensive. A combination of diet and medicines are usually needed. Diet alone is hardly helpful. Phosphate binders are the drugs given to decrease phosphate absorbtion from the gut.

Packaged food, processed food – All packaged foods, fried items, processed food etc. should be stricktly avoided. All soft drinks, heavily cooked foods purchased from market, deepfried items, fried potatoes, alcohol should all be avoided.

How to lower creatinine level in blood using ayurvedic herbs and medicines

There are herbs described in Ayurvedic medicines, the traditional healthcare system of India for supporting the normal kidney functions. These herbs help to reduce the creatinine levels naturally and without causing any burden on kidneys and can be used along with all other modern procedures like dialysis or kidney medicines. Regular use of these ayurvedic medicines helps to reduce the creatinine levels and avoid dialysis.

There are herbs in Ayurved which are cleansing and help support the kidneys naturally. These are –

  1. Mutrakrichantak Churna - 1 Teaspoonful twice daily warm with water and for best result Boil 1 Teaspoonful in 400ml water until it remains 50-60ml. Filter the preparation with a regular tea strainer and drink. You should use this once in morning 45min. after breakfast and similarly in evening 45min. after dinner. Prepare fresh every time as per this.
  2. Rencure Formula - 2 Capsules, twice daily with warm water after meals.
  3. Varunadi Vati - 2 Tablets, thrice daily with warm water after meals, contains the plant bark of Crataeva nurvala and others.
  4. Punarnava Mandur - 2 Tablets, thrice daily with warm water after meals. (Helps to improve hemoglobin levels and reduce edema) - contains the herb Boerrhavia diffusa.
  5. Chandanadi Vati - 2 Tablets, twice daily with warm water after meals.
  6. Indian Echinacea (can be added if creatinine level is above 8)
  7. Phyllanthus Niruri (Can be added if creatinine level is above 8 to 10).

  10. Corn Silk – Makki ke baal.
  11. Flowers of the flame of forest – Butea monosperma (Dhak-Palaash).
  12. Detox Tea - For complete detoxification

(Many herbs from 5 to 10 are already there in the MUTRAKRICHANTAK CHURNA mentioned below in the Revive kidneys package)

The Revive Kidneys Package helps to reduce the creatinine levels remarkably and aids in avoiding dialysis naturally. There are many patients who benefited after using this combination. So I recommend this one in many of my patients as it is. Most of the kidney failure patients are suffering from Diabetes or Blood Pressure, having low hemoglobin. This combination is useful in all such conditions as well as ongoing dialysis or treatment.

All these items from 1 to 10 (or Mutrakrichantak Churna as it is) should be taken 1 teaspoonful each and put in 400 ml water. The water should be boiled until it is about 50 ml. Strain it and drink the water (50 ml) and leave the residue. If you can consume the residue it is still ok and if you can't even then it's ok.

Sarcoidosis Herbal Remedies - Ayurvedic Treatment

Sarcoidosis is a disease of unknown cause that leads to inflammation in many organs of the body. It is an auto-immune disease. Normally, your immune system defends your body against foreign or harmful substances. For example, it makes immunity cells to protect organs that are in danger.

These cells release chemicals that recruit other cells to isolate and destroy the harmful substance. Inflammation occurs during this process. Once the harmful substance is destroyed, the cells and the inflammation goes away.

In people who have sarcoidosis, the inflammation doesn't go away. Instead, some of the immune system cells cluster to form lumps called granulomas (gran-yu-LO-mas) in various organs in your body.

Sarcoidosis, Ayurvedic treatment for sarcoidosis, Sarcoidosis treatment in ayurveda, Allopathic Drugs For Sarcoidosis, Symptoms, Treatment

According to modern medical science- The cause of sarcoidosis is unknown at this time. Therefore, there is no specific treatment to cure the condition, but according to Ayurveda the disease is caused by generation of endotoxins i.e. it is an auto-immune disease which can be treated well with natural medicines.

Steroids - Steroids are the drugs which are used in allopathic system of medicine to control inflammation. They are powerful anti-inflammatory agents, but they also affect the immune-system and has many side effects.

Corticosteroids, usually prednisone (wysolone), is used in reducing inflammation are the first drugs used in the treatment of sarcoidosis. In patients with mild symptoms, such as skin lesions, eye inflammation, or cough, topical steroid therapy with creams, eye-drops or inhalers may be sometimes sufficient to control the disease but still there are many side effects involved. When necessary, oral steroids are generally prescribed for six to twelve months. In most cases, a relatively high dose is prescribed at first, followed by a slow taper to the lowest effective does.


Alternative medications are used in patients who cannot tolerate steroids, do not respond to steroids or wish to lower the dose of steroids. These include:

  • Methotrexate - This medication reduces inflammation and suppresses the immune system.
  • Cyclophosphamide and Azathiprine - These medications are most commonly used in conjunction with steroids in patients whose condition is worsening despite treatment.
  • Antimalarial Medications (Hydroxychloroquine) - These medications are used to treat sarcoidosis of the skin and lungs.
  • Colchicine - This medication is most communly used to treat gout and is sometimes prescribed to treat sarcoidosis-related arthritis.


Ayurveda - the ancient healthcare system medicine still very much practiced in India and many parts of the world. It is a WHO recognized and adopted by Govt. of India as a major healthcare system to help masses and provide the benefits of herbs and herbal remedies to public.

There are many herbal remedies for sarcoidosis described in Ayurveda. The name of the disease may be "ama-Vata (similar to Rheumatism in aetiopathology and pathogenesis) or Sannipaitik aamaj granthi rog"

The treatment described in Ayurveda is as per the doshic theory i.e. maintaining the balance of Vata-Pitta-Kapha.

There are many patients who responded well to Ayurvedic treatment for Sarcoidosis. I gave the following prescription to most of them with some alterations depending upon patient to patient condition and allied diseases other than sarcoidosis.

  1. Boswellia-Curcumin - 2 capsules thrice daily (excellent for all sarcoidosis patients)
  2. Kachnaar Guggul - 2 tablets thrice daily
