Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) Treatment in Ayurveda - Symptoms, Causes & Diagnosis

The term "chronic" in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia comes from the fact that it progresses more slowly that other types of leukemia.

The term "lymphocytic" in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia means the cells are affected by the disease (group of white blood cells are called lymphocytes, which help the body to fight infection).

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is a cancer of the blood as well as bone marrow. Bone marrow is a spongy tissue inside the bones where blood cells are produced.

It usually affects lower adults.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA (CLL)?

There are no early symptoms of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. The signs and symptoms include:

  • Enlarged lymph nodes that are not painful
  • Fatigue
  • Pain in the upper left portion of the abdomen due to an enlarged spleen.
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent infections
  • Night sweats

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA (CLL)?

There is no known cause of CLL but some researchers believe that there is a genetic mutation in the DNA of cells that produces blood. As a result of this mutation, the blood cells produce abnormal as well as ineffective lymphocytes.

Further, these abnormal lymphocytes continue to live and multiply, when normal lymphocytes would die. These abnormal lymphocytes accumulate in the blood and certain organs where they can cause various complications. They may crowd healthy cells and interfere with the normal blood cell production.

DIAGNOSIS

Various blood tests such as counting the number of cells in a blood sample, determining the type of lymphocytes involved, analysing the lymphocytes for genetic abnormalities, bone marrow biopsy and aspiration, various imaging tests such as CT and PET tomography.

TREATMENT

Treatment for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia depend on several factors such as the stage of the cancer.

According to modern medicine, treatment may not be necessary in the early stages. If the physician determines that the chronic lymphocytic leukemia then the treatment is recommended.

The treatment includes chemotherapy, targeted drug therapy, immunotherapy and bone marrow transplant.

Treatment of Herpetic Whitlow in Ayurveda - Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV)

HERPETIC WHITLOW: OVERVIEW

herpetic whitlow, contagious viral infection, herpes simplex virus

Herpetic whitlow is a contagious viral infection which is characterized by the appearance of small, painful blisters (lesion or whitlow) on the fingers/thumbs and the fleshy area around the fingertips. In some cases, the infection can also occur on the nail cuticles or on the toes. The occurrence of these blisters or sores is a result of direct contact with an infected blister/sore.

Herpetic whitlow is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) --- the virus which also causes cold sores and genital herpes. The condition, mostly caused by HSV-1, can affect children as well as adults.

In case of children, the primary source of infection is the 'orofacial' area, with the infection usually getting transferred by the chewing, sucking, or cutting of the nails of fingers or thumbs. In adults, however, the main source of the infection is the 'genital' area, mostly with a corresponding prevalence of HSV-2. The infection in adults can predominantly affect certain professionals or adult health care workers -- chiefly medical or dental professionals -- because they can be increasingly exposed to HSV as they work closely with infected individuals.

SYMPTOMS OF HERPETIC WHITLOW

Some of the common symptoms of Herpetic whitlow are:

  • Swelling, reddening and tenderness of infected skin
  • Appearance of blisters or sores, filled with liquid or pus
  • Pain in the affected area
  • Fever
  • Red marks surrounding or leading away from the whitlow
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the armpits or elbow area.

There are some factors which can be potential triggers for the occurrence of Herpetic whitlow and other HSV infections. These factors include: fever or recurring illness, hormonal imbalance, excessive stress, surgery, excessive exposure to the sun, and mental, emotional or physical trauma.

TREATMENT OF HERPETIC WHITLOW

Herpetic whitlow is a self-limited illness. However, proper and timely treatment of the infection is very important, especially because unchecked occurrence of whitlows can potentially put a person at risk for Herpetic encephalitis -- a herpes infection in the brain -- and other superinfections or serious conditions.

The treatment of Herpetic whitlow generally involves the use of antiviral medications. These medications -- prescribed as oral or intravenous treatments -- can effectively reduce the duration of symptoms in the primary infection as well as in recurrent infections.

Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company offers some excellent herbal products which can be very beneficial in managing the symptoms of Herpetic whitlow. These products -- prepared from 100% pure and natural herbs -- are:

Ayurvedic Approach To Coronary Heart Disease

WHAT IS CORONARY HEART DISEASE?

coronary heart disease, coronary artery disease, CAD, atherosclerotic heart disease

It is a chronic heart disease in which the blood flow is obstructed through the coronary arteries that supply the heart with oxygen – rich blood.

It is the end result of the accumulation of atheromatous plaques within the walls of arteries that supply the myocardium (the muscle of the heart) with oxygen and nutrients.

Coronary Heart Disease is a condition that causes the complications such as heart attack, heart failure and myocardial infarction.

Heart problems occur mainly due to high blood pressure, diabetes, intake of alcohol, depression and foods in diet.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF HEART DISEASE?

  • Heart defects by birth (Congenital heart defects)
  • High blood pressure
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Diabetes
  • Smoking

Due to the deficiency of oxygen in the heart, the cell may die.

In this, various complications may occur which involves excess chest pain and difficulty in breathing.

Stroke

It occurs, when the blood clots are formed which can cause difficulty in speaking, loss of balance, insensibility in one part of the body. In this case, there is little blood supply to the brain.

This condition is known as ischemic stroke.

Due to the deficiency of blood, brain tissues start dying.

Pulmonary Embolism

The condition is similar to stroke but in this case, blockage in blood vessels of lungs despite heart.

Coronary Catheterization

It is a dye which is injected into the heart arteries through a catheter that is threaded through an artery, often in a leg or an arm, to the arteries in the heart.

An X-Ray then detects narrow spots or blockage revealed by the dye.

CT Scan

It helps to visualize the arteries, detect any calcium within fatty deposits that narrow the coronary arteries and to characterize other heart abnormalities.

Nuclear Ventriculography

In this tracers or radioactive materials are used to show the heart chambers.

The material is injected into the vein.

It attaches to red blood cells and passes through the heart.

In this special cameras or scanners trace the movements of the material.

Blood Tests

  • Uncontrolled hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Physical inactivity
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Uncontrolled stress and anger

AYURVEDIC VIEW ON HEART DISEASE?

HRIDROGA, combination of the word HRID defines heart and ROG defines disease.

As stated by Ayurveda heat is evaluated as a main channel for rasa and rakta dhatu. Unhealthy food intake and sedentary life style causes the blockage in the heart. Vikrati of meda dhatu, kapha dosha blocks the way of vata. Aggravation of vata dosha causes pain in heart and other symptoms like cough, fatigue, palpitations and loss of appetite.

As per Ayurveda, heart problems are caused due to dhamani praticaya and dhamani kathinaya which are the complications in arteries.

Vata dosha is responsible for heart disease.

With the help of ayurvedic treatment, healthy diet and exercise, the chances of cardiovascular disease can be minimized.

The vata passes from the majja dhatu to the mano vaha srotas, Thereby causing disorders such as paranoia, memory loss and delusions.

Alzheimer’s disease is caused due to imbalance of vata, which is common in old age.

According to ayurvedic principles, vata in the tissues of nervous system, especially brain gets imbalanced. This directly leads to problem such as lower level of coordination, unclear thinking, lack of inhibitors and retarded words and actions.

Mano vaha srotas or the mind channel that carries thoughts is affected due to the vitiation of vata.

Mesenteric Adenitis Treatment in Ayurveda - Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

MESENTERIC ADENITIS: OVERVIEW

mesenteric adenitis

Mesenteric adenitis is a usually mild condition which is characterized by the swelling (inflammation) of lymph nodes located in the 'mesentery' tissue of the abdomen. The condition is a fairly common cause of temporary pain and discomfort in the abdomen (stomach), especially in children.

Mesenteric adenitis -- which is also sometimes known as Mesenteric lymphadenitis -- typically affects children and teenagers aged less than 16 years. Its occurrence is comparatively less common in adults.

The lymph nodes which become swollen and inflamed in Mesenteric adenitis are a part of the lymphatic system of the body. They are small, bean-shaped organs which contain white blood cells called lymphocytes, and play a crucial role in the immune system. Lymph nodes are chiefly responsible for filtering out bacteria and other germs from the lymph fluid, in order to enable the body to eliminate these harmful substances and fight disease.

The most common causes of the occurrence of Mesenteric adenitis are viral infection -- generally a stomach virus or a cold virus -- and inflammatory conditions. Sometimes, very rarely, the inflammation of mesenteric lymph nodes may result from certain types of cancer, including Lymphoma, Gastrointestinal cancer, Breast cancer, Lung cancer, and Pancreatic cancer.

Although Mesenteric adenitis is usually not a serious condition, it may sometimes lead to a few complications which can include: joint pain (Arthralgia), dehydration due to severe diarrhoea or vomiting, Abscess (pus in the abdomen), Peritonitis (inflammation of the membrane surrounding the outside of the organs in the abdomen), and Sepsis (resulting from an infection causing systemic inflammatory response syndrome).

SYMPTOMS OF MESENTERIC ADENITIS

The most common symptom of Mesenteric adenitis is temporary pain in the lower right part of the abdomen (or other parts of the stomach) of affected individuals, usually children. In addition, some of the other indications of the occurrence of this mostly mild condition are:

  • High fever
  • Sore throat
  • Cold-like symptoms
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Weight loss
  • Malaise (general sick feeling).

MESENTERIC ADENITIS: TREATMENT

Mild and uncomplicated cases of Mesenteric adenitis, as well as those caused by a virus, generally do not require any treatment as they get better on their own. However, for more serious cases, doctors mostly prescribe certain medications, including over-the-counter pain relievers and fever reducers. In case of moderate to severe bacterial infection, some antibiotics may also be prescribed.

For the management of Mesenteric adenitis, herbal manufacturing company Planet Ayurveda offers some excellent herbal formulations which can relieve the abdominal pain and discomfort associated with the condition.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Longitudinally Extensive Transverse Myelitis (LETM) - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

Longitudinally Extensive Transverse Myelitis (LETM) or Longitudinally extensive spinal cord lesions (LESCL) is a neurological condition characterized by a contiguous inflammatory lesion of the spinal cord. It is a frequently devastating clinical syndrome closely associated with Neuromyelitis optica (NMO). It is defined as a spinal cord lesion that extends over three or more vertebrae where abnormal T2 signal traverse at least 3 vertebral body segments.

NMO is also known as Devic's disease. It is an auto immune disorder in which immune system cells and antibodies attack the optic nerves and spinal cord and may also attack the brain.

It is a relapsing and remitting disorder. It is very important to prevent attacks else the relapse causes new damages to the optic nerves and spinal cord which can lead to complete disability.

According to Ayurveda, most of the neurological disorders are due to Vata or Kapha imbalance in the body. LETM is a neurological disorder caused by inflammation across both sides of one level or segment of spinal cord. Myelitis means inflammation of spinal cord and transverse means position of inflammation which is across the width of spinal cord.

SYMPTOMS OF LONGITUDINALLY EXTENSIVE TRANSVERSE MYELITIS (LETM)

Symptoms of LETM may evolve over several hours to several weeks.

Localised lower back pain is one of the initial symptom.

The damage to the optic nerves can cause pain and loss of vision along with other sensory disturbances or loss of sensation. One may feel numbness, burning sensation and even coldness. Sensation to pain and slight touch gets impaired. It is common to have sensation of pins or needles travelling up from feet. A sharp shooting pain radiates down the legs or arms or around torso.

The damage to the spinal cord causes weakness or paralysis in legs and arms. Pain can suddenly begin in the lower back. One may feel something tightly wrapping the skin of chest, abdomen and legs. These symptoms are attributed to lumbar lesions that account for about 10% of the cases. One may feel that their legs are heavier than normal and have to drag them. Hand and arm coordination is also affected.

Bladder and bowel dysfunction and in some cases sexual dysfunction. There is increased frequency to urinate or have bowel movements. In some cases constipation is experienced.

Respiratory failure in severe cases. This is attributed to the cervical lesions which accounts for about 20% of the cases.

Less common symptoms include fever, headache, loss of appetite. Fear, frustration and anger leading to depression is also seen.

CAUSES OF LONGITUDINALLY EXTENSIVE TRANSVERSE MYELITIS (LETM)

Transverse Myelitis is a syndrome and not a specific disease with a single cause. It is a heterogenous condition.

There are two main groups based on the size of spinal cord lesion:

Small lesion affecting just the outer parts of the spinal cord mainly occur in patients with multiple sclerosis. The first indication is partial transverse myelitis in this case. It is considered to be produced by some underlying condition that produces MS plaques.

The other group is the patients with more severe form of transverse myelitis. They have lesion in the spinal cord extending over the length of three to more vertebrae.

It can be due to NMO-IgG autoimmunity in NMO cases.

It is also known to be caused by infections which can be either viral or bacterial, immune system disorders, demyelinating diseases. It can also be due to spinal cord injuries or any vascular disorder that impedes the blood flow through the spinal cord.

DIAGNOSES OF LONGITUDINALLY EXTENSIVE TRANSVERSE MYELITIS (LETM)

A neurologist gets the complete medical history of the patient and gets a number of tests done to confirm the problem. Spinal MRI, Brain MRI, X rays and CT scan is performed.

The presence of NMO-IgG antibody is checked during serological testing.

Blood tests are performed to rule out various disorders like HIV, syphilis, vitamin B12 deficiency etc.

TREATMENT OF LONGITUDINALLY EXTENSIVE TRANSVERSE MYELITIS (LETM)

High doses of cortisone and other steroids are given to relieve the symptoms.

Plasma exchange is known to be very effective in attacks of LETM and also in patients with LETM and optic neuritis attacks who have NMO.

Ayurvedic treatment is considered most promising treatment for neurological disorders.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Neurodermatitis - Symptoms, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

neurodermatitis, neuro allergic disease, lichen simplex, scratch dermatitis

Neurodermatitis is a neuro allergic disease of the skin which begins with an itch. It is also known as Lichen Simplex or scratch dermatitis. It is a chronic problem accompanied by itching and scaling.

The problem occurs in two forms: Localized neurodermatitis (happens on the face, neck, elbows or knees) and Disseminated neurodermatitis which is also known as atopic eczema.

The problem is supposed to be triggered due to stress and anxiety or anything that irritates the skin including tight clothing or bug bites. The problem can be triggered due to injury to the nerve also. Other triggers could be sweat, heat, allergens, poor blood flow etc.

The problem is more common in females than in men. It occurs with adults between 30 to 50 years of age. The problem is more common with people who have family history of eczema, psoriasis or other skin disorder.

According to Ayurveda, Neurodermatitis is known as Vicharchika and is caused due to unhealthy eating habits and improper lifestyle. It is caused due to aggravation of Pitta energy in the body which in turn vitiates other dhatus and doshas in the body like rakta, mansa and twacha. All this collectively leads to formation of toxins or Ama which further goes deep inside the skin and tissues and leads to Neurodermatitis.
