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.
