Ayurvedic Treatment of Cystic fibrosis - Symptoms & Complications


Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disorder which causes severe damage to the lungs, pancreas, intestines, liver, and other organs of the body. This disorder is caused by a defective gene; and it affects the cells which produce secreted fluids --- mucus, sweat and digestive juices.

In people suffering from Cystic fibrosis, the salt in sweat increases and the secreted fluids (which are usually thin and slimy) become thick and sticky because of a mutation in the CF gene on chromosome 7. As a result, the secretions are no longer able to act as lubricants. Instead, they clog the tubes, ducts and passageways in the body, particularly in the lungs and pancreas.

The clogging of the airways due to a thick and clammy build-up of mucus in the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems can trigger potentially life-threatening health conditions in people affected by Cystic fibrosis.

Hence, early diagnosis -- specifically newborn screening -- of Cystic fibrosis and its proper treatment are very crucial, for improving the quality of life of the sufferers and for increasing their lifespan.


Some of the serious conditions which can be result of Cystic fibrosis include complications associated with the respiratory system, the digestive system, and the reproductive system.

Complications Related to Respiratory System:

  • Respiratory failure
  • Bronchiectasis (damaged airways)
  • Haemoptysis (coughing up blood)
  • Nasal polyps (growths in the nose)
  • Pneumothorax (which can cause breathlessness and chest pain)
  • Acute exacerbations
  • Chronic infections

Complications Related to Digestive System:

  • Intestinal obstruction
  • Diabetes
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Blocked bile duct
  • Distal intestinal obstruction syndrome (DIOS)

Complications Related to Reproductive System:

In men affected by Cystic fibrosis, the most prominent reproductive system-linked complication is infertility; and, in women affected by Cystic fibrosis, the chances of fertility are lower as compared to other women.


Some of the common indications of Cystic fibrosis are:

  • Recurring lung infections including bronchitis or pneumonia
  • Unrelenting cough, sometimes with phlegm
  • Shortness of breath or wheezing
  • Extremely salty-tasting skin
  • Difficulty with bowel movements
  • Frequent bulky/greasy stools
  • Stuffy sinuses
  • Constipation or swelling in abdomen
  • Poor/delayed growth despite of a good appetite
  • Infertility.


The line of treatment for Cystic fibrosis is different for different patients, depending on their symptoms. While most of the elements of the treatment plans for the disorder are the same, they are personalized for the patients on the basis of their distinctive circumstances.
