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).


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).


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.

Overall, the effective management of Takayasu Arteritis is largely dependent on the early detection of the disease, and easing its symptoms. Towards that end, some excellent herbal formulations offered by Plant Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company can be extremely effective. These formulations are prepared from 100% pure and natural herbs, under the supervision of renowned Ayurveda practitioners.

Herbal Remedies for Takayasu Arteritis
