Ayurvedic Treatment of Systemic Sclerosis


Systemic Sclerosis involves a group of rare diseases in which there is hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues. In some patients, it affects only the skin but in many people, it also harms structures beyond the skin such as – blood vessels, digestive tract and other internal organs woman are much more affected in comparison to man and most commonly occurs in the age group of 30-50.

Systemic Sclerosis


Signs and symptoms vary depending on the parts of the body that are affected.

  • Skin – Skin has hard and tight patches on it. These patches are shaped like ovals or straight lines or cove areas of trunk and limbs. Skin may appear shiny because it is so tight and movement of the affected area can be difficult.
  • Digestive System – Some people with systemic sclerosis may have problems absorbing nutrients if their intestinal muscles are not moving the food properly through the intestines.

Other Symptoms Include:

  • As the condition gets worse the movement in affected areas gets limited.
  • Calcium deposits or white lumps under the skin
  • Joint pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation
  • Abdominal bloating after meals
  • Esophageal reflux
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Raynaud’s Syndrome – Patient may begin to experience spasms of blood vessels in fingers and toes. The extremities may turn white and blue in the cold or after feeling an emotional stress. This phenomenon is known as Raynaud’s Syndrome.


It results from an over-production as well as accumulation of collagen in the body tissues. Collagen is a fibrous type of protein that makes up the body's connective tissues including the skin. Immunity plays a role in prompt collagen production. In some genetically susceptible individuals, symptoms may be triggered by exposure to pesticides or solvents.


According to Ayurveda, systemic sclerosis is a form of skin disease that is because of imbalance in all three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha as well as disrupting of skin, lymph, muscle and blood tissues. Ayurvedic health care and treatment involves the balancing of aggravated doshas that are responsible for any particular disorder.
