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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Ayurvedic Treatment of IPF (Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis)


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.


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.


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).


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.


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.

Specifically speaking, the herbal formulations recommended for Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients are listed below:

1. Tulsi Capsules:

The use of Tulsi or holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is very beneficial in managing ILDs such as Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. 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 word Hepatic means "liver" and Steatosis means "infiltration of liver cells with fat". Liver is consider as the second largest organ in the body. 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.

As we all know God helps those who help themselves, likewise Planet Ayurveda worked on this inflamed rare disease and found a wonderful solution.

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.


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.


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 severely elevated blood pressure include:

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Blurry or double vision
