Ayurvedic Treatment for Ileitis (Inflammation of the Ileum) - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

Ileitis is a rare condition in which there is an inflammation of the ileum. It is often caused by Crohn's disease. However, it may be caused by the variety of other diseases. The clinical presentation of ileitis may vary from an acute and self-limited form of right lower quadrant pain or diarrhoea, as in majority of cases of bacterial ileitis, but some conditions like infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis follow a debilitating course complicated by obstructive symptoms, haemorrhage and extra-intestinal symptoms.

Crohn's ileitis is a form of Crohn's disease and causes inflammation in the ileum (the last part of the intestine). Crohn's disease is thought to account for around 30% of cases of Crohn's disease. It is considered among the groups of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

It is common for people with Crohn's disease to be diagnosed with more than one type of the condition if inflammation is present in several places in GI tract.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ILEITIS?

In some people with Ileitis, only the last segment of the small intestine (ileum) is affected while in other cases, the disease is confined to the colon which is a part of large intestine. The most common areas affected by this disease are last part of the small intestine and the colon.

Symptoms are:

  • Cramping pain in the right lower part of middle of the abdomen.
  • Diarrhoea
  • Fatigue
  • Significant weight loss
  • Blood in the stools
  • Fever
  • Mouth sores

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF ILEITIS?

According to modern medicine, the exact cause of ileitis is not known. Previously, diet and stress were suspected, but now doctors know that these are the factors that trigger ileitis but don't cause ileitis. According to Ayurveda, ileitis is caused when Vata dosha is pushes pitta dosha into the colon causing inflammation. The nervous system controls stress response. When stress is high from an increase of stimulation from prana, the first signs of the development of Crohn's disease are seen. The patient, at this stage may experience early symptoms of digestive upsets such as gas and constipation, patient may have mild systemic dryness and feeling of weakness. As the disease continues, white blood cells invade the intestinal lining and produce inflammatory toxins causing chronic tissue swelling, injury and ulceration.

Ayurvedic treatment includes the treatment of Vata and Pitta in the digestive tract throughout time of the treatment because ileitis roots back to sensitivity towards stress and anxiety.

Ayurvedic Treatment for RUT (Rapid Urease Test) Positive - Helicobacter Pylori (H. Pylori) Infection

'RUT' is an acronym for 'Rapid Urease Test' which a commonly used biopsy-based method for diagnosing Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. H. pylori is a major human pathogen which can cause progressive gastroduodenal damage. It is a kind of bacteria which is believed to be responsible for chronic gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining), peptic ulcers, gastrointestinal (digestive) disorders, and potentially gastric cancer.

The RUT -- also called the Campylobacter-like organism test (CLO test) or, simply, Urease test -- is a simple and cheap diagnostic test for H. pylori infection. It is a popular diagnostic test because of its rapid and accurate characters. This test can effectively detect the presence of urease enzyme in or on the gastric mucosa. The basis of the test is H. pylori bacteria's ability to secrete the urease enzyme, which catalyzes the conversion of urea to ammonia and carbon dioxide.

For establishing the diagnosis of H. pylori infection, the RUT is performed at the time of gastroscopy. To perform this screening test, doctors take a biopsy of mucosa from the antrum of the stomach, and place it into a medium which contains urea and phenol red (or some other indicator). The urease produced by the H. pylori bacteria hydrolyzes urea to ammonia. As a result, the pH of the medium gets raised, and the color of the specimen changes from yellow (Negative) to red (Positive).

The term 'RUT Positive', therefore, means that the results of the Rapid Urease Test (RUT) are positive.

The RUT is generally carried out for patients who suffer from the following two conditions: (i) Helicobacter pylori gastrointestinal tract infection, and (ii) Stomach cancer.

According to Ayurveda, the H. pylori infection, for which the RUT is a popular diagnostic test, results from an imbalance of 'Pitta' dosha in the body. The H. pylori infection, as per Ayurvedic experts, is triggered by the onset of 'Amla pitta' --- a health condition associated with acidity. The infection can spread via direct mouth-to-mouth contact between an infected person and a healthy individual, or by consuming contaminated food and water, or living in unhygienic conditions.

SYMPTOMS OF H. PYLORI INFECTION DETECTED BY RUT

Some of the most common symptoms of H. pylori infection, which can be detected with the help of the RUT diagnostic test, are:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Burning sensation in the abdomen
  • Bloating
  • Frequent burping
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite (Anorexia)
  • Sudden weight loss.

TREATMENT OF H. PYLORI INFECTION DETECTED BY RUT

After the RUT diagnostic test establishes the diagnosis of H. pylori infection, the patients suffering from the infection need to be treated properly, in a timely manner, because the infection can potentially lead to several other health problems. For treating H. pylori infection, doctors generally prescribe a combination of antibiotics and acid-reducing medicines to the patients.

Ayurvedic treatment for H. pylori infection involves the use of herbs. There are some excellent herbal formulations offered by Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company which can be extremely beneficial in managing the symptoms of H. pylori infection.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Pangastritis - Symptoms, Causes, Home Remedies, Diet & Lifestyle

Pangastritis is defined as the inflammation of entire lining of the stomach. The inflammation of gastritis is most often seen as the result of infection with the same bacterium that causes stomach ulcers. Pangastritis can occur suddenly known as acute gastritis or appear slowly over time known as chronic gastritis.

When we eat food, it goes down through the food pipe and it is stored in stomach for about 1.5-2 hours. In the stomach, food undergoes disintegration into small particles. HCl (Hydrochloric Acid) kills the micro-organisms present in the food. The small portion of the food is absorbed. After 1.5-2 hours, the food is pushed down to intestine for further digestion.

If the inner lining of the stomach is irritated or damaged or inflamed, this condition is known as gastritis. The stomach lining can become inflamed due to certain reasons like heavy alcohol consumption, eating spicy and junk food, stress etc.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PANGASTRITIS?

  • Nausea

  • In erosive gastritis drugs, alcohol, acute stress and infection can precipitate the condition.
  • In most non-erosive gastritis conditions, H.pylori often found in people who suffer from no significant symptoms of gastritis. The symptoms appear when the gut becomes a conducive environment for H.pylori to colonise. According to Ayurvedic concept, the inbuild of toxins and impurities, blockage of proper circulation in the gut creates ground for mucosal irritation from both the toxins and H.pylori growth.

According to Ayurveda, root causes of Pangastritis are poor eating habits, taking incompatible food, intake of spicy and fried foods. Due to these foods, food is not digested properly and it provokes the excess of acidic secretion and thus results in gastric irritation.

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT FOR PANGASTRITIS

According to Ayurveda, this disease is of Pitta origin so all measures are undertaken to pacify Pitta, therefore medicament should subside the irritation. After once complete remission of the complaints, elixirs are prescribed so as to check the re-manifestation of the similar conditions in coming days.

According to Ayurveda, line of treatment for pangastritis involves the following steps:

  • Correction of digestive enzymes
  • Healing of the inflamed stomach lining (gastric mucosa)
  • Correction of secretion of gastric juices
  • Achieving overall balanced function of stomach.

SOME HOME REMEDIES FOR PANGASTRITIS ARE

Ayurvedic Treatment for Takayasu Arteritis - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

Takayasu Arteritis (TA) is a disease which causes the inflammation of the large arteries in the body. This inflammatory disease is known by some other names also, including 'Pulseless disease,' 'Aortic arch syndrome,' and 'Nonspecific aortoarteritis.'

In Takayasu Arteritis, the arteries which become inflamed are: the 'aorta', which is the main artery that supplies blood from the heart to different parts of the body; and the 'pulmonary artery', which sends blood to the lungs.

Other than the aorta and the pulmonary artery which become inflamed in Takayasu Arteritis, some of the other important arteries branching out from the aorta may also be affected by the disease. These arteries include the 'subclavian' arteries which supply blood to the arms, the 'renal' arteries which supply blood to the kidneys, the 'coronary' arteries in the heart, and the 'carotid' arteries in the brain and the head.

Thus, Takayasu Arteritis can be described as a rare type of 'vasculitis disease', that is, a group of disorders which result in the inflammation of blood vessels. The blood vessels which become inflamed in Takayasu Arteritis in particular are the aorta and its main branches. Over a period of time, the inflammation in the walls of the arteries leads to the scarring, thickening, and narrowing scarring of the arteries.

Takayasu Arteritis is considered to be an autoimmune condition, in which the immune system of the affected individuals' body attacks their own arteries by mistake. This disease may also get triggered by a virus or some other kind of infection; and can lead to Stenosis (blockages or narrowed arteries) or Aneurysms (abnormal dilation of arteries).

SYMPTOMS OF TAKAYASU ARTERITIS

Takayasu Arteritis mostly affects girls and women aged between 10 and 40 years. Initially, some of the signs and symptoms which potentially hint at the occurrence of the disease are fatigue, mild fever, body aches and pains, and unintended weight loss.

However, when inflammation causes the narrowing of arteries in affected individuals over time, and less blood, oxygen and nutrients reach their organs and tissues, some of the symptoms of the disease may include:

  • Weakness or pain in the limbs
  • Shortness of breath
  • Memory problems
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness, light-headedness, or fainting
  • High blood pressure
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty in thinking clearly
  • Visual changes
  • Difference in blood pressure between the arms
  • Decreased pulse
  • Anaemia (very low count of red blood cells).

HERBAL REMEDIES FOR MANAGING TAKAYASU ARTERITIS

There is presently no cure for Takayasu Arteritis. Hence, the line of treatment for the patients suffering from this disease basically involves the use of medications for controlling the condition by providing relief from its symptoms. Some patients may require long-term treatment for the disease in order to prevent any possible recurrence of the inflammation of the blood vessels.

Chronic Mononucleosis / Infection with the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)

Chronic Mononucleosis (mono) is an acute infectious disease which is characterized by the presence of an abnormally large number of mononuclear leukocytes (monocytes) in circulating blood.

Chronic Mononucleosis -- a disease which is also called 'Chronic fatigue syndrome' -- is most commonly caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). The most notable indications of this disease are fever, fatigue and sore throat; and it generally gets transmitted via direct oral contact (through saliva).

Mononucleosis is also sometimes referred to as 'kissing disease' because it can spread through kissing. Besides kissing, some of the other situations which can potentially facilitate the transmission of this disease are exposure to the cough or sneeze of an infected person; and by sharing glasses, dishes or food utensils with an infected person.

It is important to note that the Epstein-Barr virus which causes Chronic Mononucleosis infection has an incubation period of approximately 4-6 weeks, or even a much shorter period in case of children. Moreover, the virus can persist in an infected person's saliva for several months after the infection. Hence, preventive measures against the spread of the disease should be taken for a long time after its symptoms have subsided.

The occurrence of Mononucleosis is recorded more frequently during the spring season as compared to other seasons of the year; but it is not as contagious as common cold or some other infections. The disease chiefly affects children and young adults.

Mononucleosis is not usually a very serious disease by itself. Nonetheless, the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) can cause a serious illness in individuals who have an impaired immune system, specifically individuals who are suffering from HIV/AIDS or those who have been taking drugs to suppress immunity after undergoing an organ transplant.

As of now, there is no vaccination for the prevention of Mononucleosis, and there is also no specific treatment for the infection. Therefore, the treatment of this disease is mainly symptomatic; with adequate rest, healthy diet and sufficient intake of fluids considered to be the key to recovery.

SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC MONONUCLEOSIS

Some of the common symptoms of Chronic Mononucleosis infection with EBV include:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat (which persists despite the use of antibiotics)
  • Headache
  • Swollen/enlarged lymph nodes in the neck and armpits
  • Swollen spleen
  • Skin rash
  • Swollen tonsils, which can affect breathing.

HEALTH COMPLICATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH CHRONIC MONONUCLEOSIS

Chronic Mononucleosis infection with EBV, in severe cases, can lead to certain health complications which can be more serious than the disease itself. The complications which are generally linked to Mononucleosis are:

  • Enlargement of the spleen
  • Liver problems like Hepatitis (mild liver inflammation) and Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
  • Anaemia (a decrease in red blood cells and in haemoglobin)
  • Thrombocytopenia (low platelet count)
  • Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle)
  • Breathing difficulties due to swollen tonsils
  • Meningitis, Encephalitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and other complications of the nervous system.

HERBAL FORMULATIONS FOR MANAGING CHRONIC MONONUCLEOSIS

Since there is no specific cure for Chronic Mononucleosis in present times, the treatment of the disease basically revolves around different measures undertaken by medical practitioners for providing relief to the patients suffering from the disease by controlling its symptoms.

Certain herbal formulations prepared by renowned herbal manufacturing company Planet Ayurveda can be very beneficial for the patients of Chronic Mononucleosis with EBV, because these formations can effectively manage the disease without any side effects or complications.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Triple Vessel Disease - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

Human heart has three main coronary arteries. When the blood vessels supplying blood, oxygen and nutrients to the heart gets damaged or plague gets build up  in arteries or there is  inflammation in arteries, it  leads to coronary artery disease wherein the arteries get narrowed thereby decreasing the blood flow to the heart.

Depending on the number of vessels that are narrowed, one has single, double and triple vessel disease. Critical narrowing of the arteries leads to angina or chest pain and shortness of breath. This usually occurs after physical activity or due to stress. A complete blockage leads to heart attack. It is more common in males than in females. It is a chronic disease.

The main cause of triple vessel or three vessel coronary artery disease is atherosclerosis which is a condition in which cholesterol accumulates in the artery walls, resulting in abnormal and gradual thickening of the lining of the heart arteries, causing the blood flow to be restricted.

According to Ayurveda, heart problem is termed as Hrid Shula which means pain in and around the heart. It is due to Vata imbalance.

CAUSES

Smoking, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and high blood fat levels or cholesterol levels are the main causes of coronary artery disease. A diet low in antioxidants, rich in saturated fats leads to blockage of arteries. Lack of exercise or sedentary lifestyle, stress, alcohol also contribute to the problem. Sleep apnea, high triglyceride levels, high sensitivity to C reactive protein may also lead to triple vessel disease.

Age is one of the cause too especially after the age of 40.

SYMPTOMS

The symptoms are usually visible in advanced stage of disease. Chest pain spreading from left arm or neck, back, throat or jaw, shortness of breath, palpitations, giddiness, cold sweaty hands etc are some of the visible symptoms of triple vessel disease.

Some complain of numbness in arms, shoulders and wrists. Vertigo and dizziness, nausea and vomiting, weakness, cold feet, loss of appetite, heartburn, loss of vision on one side , trouble during climbing heights or steps , getting emotional and irritated are other less common symptoms of triple vessel disease. Feeling of heaviness or someone squeezing the heart is another common symptom.

DIAGNOSE

Electrocardiogram, Echocardiogram, exercise stress test, nuclear scan test, stress thallium tests and cardiac catheterization or angiogram and CT scan are some of the ways to determine blocked arteries.

TREATMENT

Medicines aim at lowering the cholesterol levels and thereby decreasing the strain on the heart. In extreme cases, the affected arteries are reopened using an angioplasty and rerouted using cardiac bypass surgery.

Ayurvedic treatment for triple vessel disease aims at regulating blood pressure so that the functioning of heart gets easy .The herbs also work towards removing plaques from the walls of arteries to maintain a constant blood flow.
