An Ayurvedic Approach To Treat Sarcoidosis - Signs, Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies


Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disorder of unknown etiology characterized by disordered immune regulation.

Sarcoidosis is a disease that causes an inflammation of tissues of the body. It may occur in any body organ, but it starts most often in the lungs or lymph nodes. Sarcoidosis is very tricky to diagnose. So, basically we can say Sarcoidosis is an abnormal collection of inflammatory cells that form lumps that known as granulomas (gran-yu-LO-mas). Sarcoidosis usually appears to begin in skin, lungs and lymph nodes. It mostly affects the lungs, eyes, heart and brain but can also affect other organ systems.


People can get Sarcoidosis at any age, it commonly affects adults between ages 30 to 40. The NHS estimates that Sarcoidosis affects one person in every 10,000 people in the United Kingdom.


In some people, symptoms appear very suddenly but are not very long lasting. This is called Acute Sarcoidosis. The symptoms of Acute Sarcoidosis are swollen lymph nodes, tiredness, fever, joint pains and rashes on the legs.


When Symptoms develop gradually and last longer i.e. long term, is called Chronic Sarcoidosis.  People with chronic Sarcoidosis, have fewer symptoms, but the symptoms may get worsen with time.


Sarcoidosis affects any organ system. It is a systemic inflammatory disease. Although in many cases it is an asymptomatic.

Sometimes Sarcoidosis patient think that they have the flu or a respiratory infection.

Common Symptoms of Sarcoidosis are:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

  • Eye irritation, bumps on eyes.
  • Fast heart rate
  • Kidney stones

Sarcoidosis is a spontaneous disease which has unknown cause. According to research, an infection or exposure to something in the environment can trigger the immune system of the body to overreact.

It may be a type of autoimmune disease that is associated with an abnormal immune response. Sarcoidosis, spreading from one part of the body to another, is still being studied.


Sarcoidosis may be very difficult to diagnose because the disease has very few signs and symptoms in its early stages. The doctor will most likely start with a physical exam, including a close examination of any skin lesions a person has.

Diagnostic tests may help to diagnose and determine what body systems may be affected by Sarcoidosis. Your doctor may recommend the following tests:

  • Chest X-ray
  • Computerized tomography (CT scan)
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Blood tests
  • Lung (pulmonary) function tests
  • Eye exam to check for vision problems that may be caused by Sarcoidosis.
