What’s the treatment for Ulcerative Colitis?

Before coming to the treatment of ulcerative colitis we must know a few important things about ulcerative colitis.


What Is The Treatment Of Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic condition of large intestines, presented with inflammation, swelling, and ulcers of the large intestine. The large intestine is also known as colon, suffers from chronic inflammation, gradually developing tiny holes or ulcers producing pus or mucus. Ulcerative colitis affects the inner lining of the colon and rectum. Symptoms develop gradually. Ulceration and inflammation leads to abdominal pain, discomfort and damage the colon.


IBD is inflammatory bowel disease. It comprises two major conditions, namely:

  1. Ulcerative colitis
  2. Crohn’s disease


Factors contributing to cause of ulcerative colitis are:

Immune System

Immune system protects our body against infections from virus and bacteria. But when this immune system mistakenly attack the lining of the intestine instead of foreign body and it leads to inflammation of the colon, gradually resulting in ulcers.


According to research certain abnormal genes are found to be responsible for ulcerative colitis. It is found running in families.


Regular or much intake of antibiotics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, oral contraceptives, and high-fat diet increases the risk of ulcerative colitis.


Sign and symptoms of ulcerative colitis develop gradually. Patient suffering from ulcerative colitis can have mild or severe symptoms depending upon the severity and duration of the disease. Some of the important signs and symptoms are as follows:

  • Bowel movements become more frequent and urgency to pass stool increases.
  • Abdominal pain and discomfort
  • Blood in stool
  • Pus or mucus can be present in stool.
  • Rectal pain
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Anemia
  • Fatigue
  • In young children, it can affect growth.

Sign and symptoms in ulcerative colitis patients occur periodically. There is a time when the patient feels completely fine and there are no symptoms and then again there is remission of complaints. This period of no sign and symptoms can be of days, months or even years. The remission is unpredictable.


However, people of any age can be affected with this disease but some people are more prone and at greater risk of developing it:

  • Age - People aging between 15 to 30.
  • Family History - The one having a family history of inflammatory bowel disease.


According to the part of colon affected specifies the type of Ulcerative Colitis, ulcerative colitis can be of following types:

  • Ulcerative Proctitis - Is a type in which the part of colon near to anus, i.e. rectum is affected. There is rectal bleeding with loose stools and pain. It is the mildest form of ulcerative colitis.
  • Proctosigmoiditis - This is the type which is affecting the  rectum and sigmoid colon. Presented with complaints like blood in loose stool, abdominal pain, there is an urge to pass stool but not able to pass due to tenesmus.
  • Pancolitis - It affects the whole colon and the symptoms are more severe like bloody diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, weight loss, and fatigue.
  • Left-sided Clitis - It affects rectum and left the side of colon involving sigmoid colon and descending colon. The symptoms seen are loose stool with blood, nausea, loss weight, abdominal pain.


The doctor may perform a few tests first to rule out other diseases which cause similar symptoms like Crohn's disease and coeliac disease. The basic tests to be carried out to diagnose ulcerative colitis are:

  1. Physical examination
  2. Family history and previous medical history
  3. Lab tests
  4. Endoscopy


Conventionally treatment for ulcerative colitis is intended to manage the symptoms. The aim is to initiate the relaxation period, i.e. when there are no signs and symptoms and to maintain it.


Ulcerative colitis is known as pitta Grahani in Ayurveda and according to Ayurveda, it is caused due to the accumulation of toxins and impurities in the body. It is a disease of pitta dosha and a varying amount of Vata dosha involved too. Impurities and toxins (Ama) accumulate from food containing much amount of pitta. When one eats the food which aggravate the pitta slowly makes a coating on the lining of colon. This results that immune system identifies it as a foreign material and attack the colon affecting both rakht dhatu (blood) and mamsa dhatu (muscles).

Ayurvedic treatment involves gradually eliminating Ama and restoring the health of the colon.

What Is The Treatment Of Sarcoidosis In Ayurveda?

Sarcoidosis otherwise thought to be incurable can be treated successfully with Ayurvedic medicines. First of all to understand the treatment of Sarcoidosis we should go through some of the basic points of this disease.


What Is The Treatment Of Sarcoidosis In Ayurveda?

Sarcoidosis is a disease condition characterized by inflammation of various organs of the body. Usually, lungs and lymph nodes are affected. In this due to inflammation masses of inflammatory cells forms and gather in various organs of the body. When these masses gradually grow and develop in large size it starts altering the function and size of the organ and if left untreated it can result in fibrosis (scarring) of the organ. This scarring is permanent and irreversible.


As we know this disease affects different organs of the body so the symptoms appearing can vary greatly according to the organ affected. Common symptoms appear are:

  • Dry cough
  • Wheezing
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Night Sweats
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Chest pain
  • Congestion of chest

Other Symptoms Which Can Occur Are:

  • Skin Rashes
  • Abnormal liver functions
  • Kidney stones
  • Abnormal heart rate
  • Irritation in eyes
  • Increased calcium levels in the blood.


The exact cause is not known. There can be a familial tendency to develop this disease. A bacterial or viral infection can result in the overreaction of the immune system, resulting in Sarcoidosis.


  • Age - People with age of 20-40 years are more at risk of this disease.
  • Gender - Females are more prone to develop sarcoidosis as compared to males.
  • Family History - Family history of sarcoidosis pre-disposes a person to have sarcoidosis.
  • More exposure to dust and bacteria might be a cause for this.


Usually diagnosing sarcoidosis can be really difficult and tricky. As it shows only few sign and symptoms mimicking flu. But your doctor can diagnose it by performing a physical examination, taking history and going for the tests.

  • X-ray of the chest to see enlarged lymph nodes and any damage to lungs.
  • PET- scan or MRI if heart involvement is suspected.
  • CT scan to rule out any complication.
  • Blood tests to asses’ kidneys and liver function
  • Lung function test to asses’ lung capacity.
  • Eye check up to asses vision.


  • Lungs - If sarcoidosis left untreated it can lead to lung fibrosis.
  • Eye - Long-continued inflammation in eyes can result in blindness.
  • Kidney - It can alter kidney function and can result in kidney failure.
  • Heart - Masses of inflammatory cells can result in abnormal heart beats.
  • Nervous System - In rare cases sarcoidosis can affect the nervous system.


According to the conventional system of medicine there is no curative treatment for sarcoidosis. According to it, there is no need for treatment if there are no significant symptoms. Patient has to go too regularly for check-ups like a chest x-ray, eye check-ups, and other organs check-ups. Otherwise, if the organ is damaged than one have to go for a transplant.

Treatment, when given, is to manage symptoms, maintain good health and proper working of organs.

One can ensure good health by following few tips:

  • Regular check-ups for different organs.
  • Taking a balanced diet
  • Taking a good amount of fluids
  • Having good and sound sleep
  • Avoid smoking and drinking.

Whereas Ayurveda provides an alternative treatment for sarcoidosis by which it prevents the organ from being affected and also restores the function of the affected organs naturally. According to Ayurveda diseases occur due to an imbalance of the three dosha, i.e. vata, kapha and pitta. Ayurvedic treatment is based on balancing these doshas and treating the disease in a most natural way.

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is one such disability that can affect all aspects of daily life. It mostly affects babies and children, and more rarely adults. People with this disability find it very difficult to use their muscles.  Remember, every child or person with SMA will have a different experience.

Staying well informed about this health condition can help you give your child a better and healthy life.

Keep on reading to learn more about the SMA, its cause and herbal remedies to manage it in a natural way.


It is a genetic disorder that impairs a person's ability to control their muscle movements.
Is your child suffering from this genetic condition because of you? Well, it is a disease passed down through families, your child may have two copies of a broken gene from each of you and your partner.


Did you know that muscles move on commands from the brain? It is our brain that sends signals to different body parts to control the muscle movements. But in SMA affected child, there is a breakdown of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord due to which the brain stops sending signals. What will happen next? If our brain stops sending signals, we will be unable to control muscle movements.

As a result, affected child's muscles become weak and get shrink. He can have trouble controlling head movement and will find it difficult to sit or walk without help. He may even find difficulty swallowing and breathing.


Every child with this disorder has a gene mutation but the symptoms and progression of disease vary from person to person. Because of this, the disorder is broken down to following 4 types of SMA.


It is the most severe and common type of SMA. Babies with this condition start showing symptoms such as a weak cry, inability to raise head without support, weak and floppy arms and legs, trouble moving, swallowing and breathing in the first 6 months after birth. Babies with this condition typically have the lowest level of functioning.


This condition affects child's legs more than his arms. The symptoms usually appear in the baby of the ages between 7 to 18 months old. Symptoms include inability to stand up on their own, tremors in fingers and hands, curved spine and weak breathing muscles.


People with this condition can stand or walk on their own but they may lose the ability to walk or stand when they get older. This condition is usually diagnosed by age 3. The symptoms such as sideways curvature of the spine, difficulty getting up from a seated position or running and balancing problems begin after 18 months of age.


This condition is also known as adult-onset SMA as the symptoms usually begin in early adulthood usually after age 35. A person with this condition may experience weakness in hands and feet, difficulty walking and shaking muscles.


Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of natural health care that addresses all aspects of life including brain, neurological and muscular health. Ayurveda has a fundamental concept in tradition- Doshas. What are they? They are 3 (vata, pitta and kapha doshas) energetic forces of nature which when out of balance can affect our health.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Hepatitis - Liver Cirrhosis

ayurvedic treatment for hepatitis

Hepatitis is a problem related to the liver, where Hepato means liver and titis means swelling. So whenever there is swelling, inflammation related to the liver it is called hepatitis. There are many kinds of hepatitis. Its reason may vary. It can occur due to viruses, toxins, synthetic drugs and due to other reasons.


So before telling about its symptoms, firstly I want to explain its types. Hepatitis generally refers to various swelling and inflammation of the liver called the virus.


The various types of hepatitis are A, B, C, D, E. Hepatitis F and G are newly discovered genotype. In these, hepatitis A is quite common and it spread like an epidemic. The main cause of its spreads is unhygienic conditions like unhygienic foods, drinks and insanitary conditions. Main mode of transmission of this infection is flies and feces. It mostly occurs in third world countries. Hepatitis E and F are also similar to the hepatitis A. These are relatively easy to cure with herbs like Bhumi Amalaki, Kalmegh, bhringraj, Kutki. All these herbs help a lot to recover the hepatitis A. Now talk upon other hepatitis types. Hepatitis B and C are very serious conditions. They are difficult to cure. But in Ayurveda, however, the response of the treatment is very good. Whenever we have given treatment, we got good results. In Ayurveda, we correlate it with KAMALA.


Kamala is correlated with hepatitis or liver cirrhosis. All types of hepatitis if not treated leads to liver cirrhosis.


Liver cirrhosis is the end stage of hepatitis or whenever there is too much load on the liver and swelling is not controlled that leads to Liver Failure.


As I was talking about KAMALA, it has types like HALIMAK, PANAKI, and KUMBH-Kamala. In kumbh kamala, there is retention of water, which is ascites; in halimak, there will be fever association and in panaki, there will be diarrhea association. So Ayurvedic herbs are providing excellent results in these problems.

Now let's talk over the signs and symptoms. Initially, there is fatigue, then jaundice occur, the skin becomes pale, urine becomes dark and stool becomes of clay color as it loses pigments. There are some lab tests (Like Australia antigen test, serum bilirubin) which confirm hepatitis.


Yes, people are responding very well with Ayurvedic medicines, especially for Hept. Hepatitis A and D respond within few days. Hept. C and B are very chronic and are complicated ones and spread by contaminated syringes, sexually and with contaminated blood. Here our medicines like Bhumiamalaki, Kutki, Punarnava, bhringraj.


Basically, these herbs cleanse the liver and remove the toxins from it like to cleanse; liver Kutki is the best herb. It is one of the best herbs to cure liver ailments and remove its toxins and neutralize the acid. This is how we treat it and other medicine makes the body system strong enough to remove toxins very fast. Even synthetic drugs and alcohol is also one of its causes.


Yes, it will cause inflammation in the liver and will make it fatty and at last will lead to hepatitis. So, one should avoid alcohol.


Alcohol should be totally avoided; protein intake to be limited, more synthetic drugs should be avoided.


Constant intake of junk and frozen food is harmful as they have many preservatives which can harm liver and its functionality.


Yes, there are many Ayurvedic preparations. There many herbs, especially, Yakrit plihanatak Churna is there. Combination of drugs such as Punarnava Mandoor, Liver Detox Capsules, Arogyavardhani Vati are used in liver disorders. Also using Kalmeghnavayasaloh classical drug. Also using bhasma preparation like: muktapisthi, Prawalpisthi, Prawal panch amrit, kamdhudha rasa, akikpisthi, to balance the pitta.

In liver disorders, pitta virechana is the principal treatment which means to remove excess toxins and pitta from body and liver and to restore the fire elements. Kutki is very good herb for this. It is used in Yakrit plihanatak Churna and also in Arogyavardhani vati.

The Principal is to clear pitta, which you can correlate with bilirubin or bile and helps the liver to perform well.


Yes, these are. They are helping a lot in hepatitis and liver cirrhosis, especially, alcoholic liver cirrhosis.


It has all herbs almost which are helpful in liver disorders like Punarnava, Kalmegh, Kasni.


It is a detoxifying herb which makes all cells new and helps in removing toxins. With all other herbs mentioned.


Yes, these herbs are very easily available. Bhumiamalkai is a small plant. And is easily available.

Cherries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries are good examples of such fruits.

Niacin-rich foods such as brewer's yeast, beets, swordfish, tuna, sunflower seeds and salmon can help increase the production of collagen and prove beneficial for those who have dark spots on their skin. Wait! Are you vegetarian? If so, you may not want to consume meat, salmon or tuna! Don't worry; you can opt for collagen production herbal remedies as they are made with herbs and are pure vegetarian.


How can vitamin C rich foods help? Well, they are packed with antioxidants that can help reduces the damage caused by free radicals responsible for aging while building and repairing tissues. Oranges, grapefruits, lemons, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers and broccoli are some of the good sources of vitamin C rich foods.

Enough Sulfur in your body can help keep your complexion clear and youthful. Moreover, you will have healthy skin and smooth hair. Garlic, egg yolks, meat, poultry, fish, onions, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, asparagus, and kale are some of the great examples of sulfur-rich foods.

Wait! There is one important point to keep in mind. Do not overcook foods as doing so can greatly reduce sulfur present in them.


Consuming iron-rich foods such as meat, poultry, fish, spinach, kale, whole grains and nuts may also help boost your collagen levels.


Eating more of copper-rich foods such as organ meats, dark leafy greens, dried legumes and nuts can also help boost collagen production in your body.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Chocolate Cyst

A Chocolate cyst is a fluid-filled sac growing deep within the ovary. The chocolate cyst can be sometimes filled with semi-solid material and thus called complex ovarian cyst. Endometrioma is another name for a chocolate cyst. A Chocolate cyst is an estrogen-dependent disease.


These cysts are named so due to their appearance of the dark tar-like material. This material is old menstrual blood and tissues stored within this cyst. Either single or both the ovaries can be affected by these cysts and it can occur singly or may be multiple.

chocolate cyst


The women suffering from chocolate cyst usually are under the premenopausal group. One suffering with endometriosis are more prone to chocolate cyst. Endometriosis is a condition in which lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. It can grow around ovaries, fallopian tubes or on other reproductive organs.


Menstrual blood flowing back to the body of the women during periods, i.e. retrograde menstruation is the main cause of chocolate cysts formation. Normally due to the fluctuation of hormone women shed their endometrial lining but in case of chocolate cyst some of the blood and tissues flows back and adhere to ovaries and grow there. Slowly and gradually blood collects and forms a cyst. So in cases of endometriosis women have more chances of flow back of blood resulting in a chocolate cyst.

These cysts can rupture when more and more blood collect and starts leaking. This can pose as a complication.


Some of the symptoms are listed below:

  • Abdominal pain and cramps
  • Heaviness and swelling around the abdomen
  • Bloating of abdomen
  • Fever and vomiting
  • Dark colored discharge from the vagina
  • Increased menstrual bleeding
  • Painful menstruation
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Pain while passing stool and urine
  • Pain during stretching or bending
  • Infertility

As an individual we all are different. So some women can have severe symptoms at the starting stage while other having the progressive condition can have little or no symptoms. So we cannot co-relate the severity of disease with symptoms.


  • Intake of fertility drug which causes ovulation.
  • Endometriosis as in this condition endometrial cells grows outside the uterus.
  • Pregnancy as corpus luteum develops on ovary may sustain and form a cyst.
  • Any infection that spreads to the ovary can lead to the formation of a cyst.
  • History of any previous ovarian cyst.


  • Though chocolate cysts are non- cancerous but ovarian cysts occurring after menopause can be cancerous.
  • Increased size of the ovary can cause the painful twisting of the ovary which can lead to stoppage of blood supply to ovaries. It can be very painful along with nausea and vomiting.
  • Rupture of the cysts can cause severe pain and internal bleeding.


  • An ultrasound can be used to diagnose the chocolate cyst.
  • Needle biopsy to extract the fluid and then examine using a microscope.


In conventional treatment two ways are used to treat chocolate cyst:

  • If the cyst is small and in its initial stage medicines are given to stop the menstruation cysts do not grow more in size.
  • Secondly, if the size of cyst is bigger and the chances of rupture are more than treatment is surgical, i.e. laparoscopic cystectomy.


Yes, chocolate cyst does affect the fertility severely. In cystic condition there occur scarring over the ovary tissue. Secondly, if a surgical procedure is performed to treat this cyst than it too causes severe scarring of ovary tissue affecting fertility very badly.


Other than conventional medicines, yes Ayurveda do have a wide range of herbal remedies for the treatment of chocolate cyst.


Conventional treatment for cyst includes intake of oral contraceptives to stop the menstruation, so the size of cyst does not increase. This can cause an imbalance of female hormone and can result in many side effects like postmenopausal symptoms. Surgical treatment can cause scarring of ovary tissue. These all can result in infertility. So this type of treatment along with it brings many side effects too which any patient do not ask for.

While on the other hand, Ayurveda offers:

  • A gentle, quick and long-lasting treatment.
  • No side effects.
  • All the medicines are made from natural ingredients.


According to Ayurveda imbalance of three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) in the body leads to chocolate cysts. Accumulation of toxins in the body is the reason for this. At Planet Ayurveda, we are offering treatment for cyst which is 100% natural. All our herbal medicines are made from natural herbs which eradicate the disease from the root. Treatment is gentle, quick and long-lasting.

Left Ventricular Hypertrophy - Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

left ventricular hypertrophy

Cardiac hypertrophy is defined as an increase in the size and weight of the myocardium. It generally results from increased pressure load while increased volume load (for e.g. - valvular incompetence) results in the hypertrophy with dilation of the affected chamber due to regurgitation of the blood through incompetent valve. This hypertrophy when occurs in the left valve of the heart is known as left ventricular hypertrophy. This is condition in which muscles of the heart that are pumping blood to the left valve becomes excessive thickened. The atria of the heart may also undergo compensatory changes due to increased work load.

The basic factors that stimulates left ventricular hypertrophy of the myocardial fibres are not known. It appears that stretching of myocardial fibres in response to stress induces the cells to increase in length. The elongated fibres receive better nutrition and thus increased in size. Other factor responsible for causing this disorder may include anoxia and influence of certain hormones (e.g. -catecholamines and pituitary growth hormones).

Older people are more prone to this disease. Mainly women with hypertension are at higher risk to suffer with left ventricular hypertrophy.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Branchial Cleft Cyst - Types, Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies


branchial cleft cyst

Branchial cleft cyst is a rare birth defect which chiefly affects the neck. Though the defect is present at birth, it generally becomes evident in childhood or adolescence in most cases. An initial clinical presentation of the defect in adulthood is very rarely encountered.

Branchial cleft cyst (also called Branchial cleft remnant) is characterized by the appearance of a lump, which develops one or both sides of the affected child’s neck or underneath the collarbone. The occurrence of this congenital birth defect is linked to the ‘early embryonic development’ stage -- specifically the fifth week of fetal development -- during which the major neck structures are formed. Due to this defect, the normal development of the tissues in the neck and collarbone, or branchial cleft, is hampered.

The tissues comprising the neck structures formed during the ‘early embryonic development’ stage later become the cartilage, blood vessels, muscles and bone.

The appearance of Branchial cleft cyst is typically in the form of an opening, or cleft sinuses, on one or both sides of the child’s neck. Due to this abnormality, there is an atypical form of tissues within the neck. These tissues may lead to the formation of pockets called ‘cysts’ that contain fluid, and may form passages which drain to an opening in the skin surface called fistulas. The cysts, lined with skin and lymph cells, may become infected or cause skin irritation, and result in difficulties with breathing or swallowing. In some rare cases, cancerous tumors may develop at the site of a branchial cleft in adults.

There are four main types of Branchial cleft abnormalities --- (i) First branchial cleft anomalies, in which cysts develop around the earlobe or under the jaw (ii) Second branchial cleft sinuses, which open on the lower part of the neck (iii) Third branchial cleft sinuses, which develop close to the thyroid gland in the front part of the muscle which attaches to the collarbone (iv) Fourth branchial cleft sinuses, which affect the area below the neck. The most common type of Branchial cleft abnormality is ‘Second branchial cleft sinuses,’ or the failure of fusion of the second and third branchial arches.

Branchial cleft cysts account for nearly 20% of neck masses in children. While the cyst may generally not be dangerous, it is important to take the affected child to the doctor without any delays, for an official diagnosis of the problem.


Branchial cleft cyst mostly does not cause any pain, except in cases when it gets infected. Some of the symptoms of a branchial cleft cyst include:

  • Pain in the affected area.
  • Feeling of pressure in the affected area.
  • Draining of fluid from the neck of the child.
  • Formation of a small lump or mass on the side of the neck close to the front edge of the sternocleidomastoid muscle.
  • Formation of a lump, dimple or skin tag on the child’s upper shoulder, or slightly underneath their collar bone.
  • Swelling or tenderness in the child’s neck, generally occurring with an upper respiratory infection.

Branchial cleft cysts generally develop in late childhood or early adulthood as a solitary, painless mass which becomes infected, though it is not noticed earlier.


Ayurvedic treatment of diseases begins with the identifying of the ‘body type’ of patients, for the purpose of finding out certain body tendencies which may trigger a sickness/disease. Hence, Ayurveda uses ‘body type’ identification for determining the possible root cause of a disease. After identifying the ‘body type’, Ayurveda practitioners analyze the nature of the diseases/disorder that a patient is suffering from. This analysis fits all the signs and symptoms of the disease into a pattern, which is expressed as a combination of qualities or ‘gunas.’

According to Ayurveda, the formation of cysts is an indication of an aggravated ‘Kapha’ dosha. The imbalance of the Kapha dosha makes it difficult for the body to detoxify irritants. Hence, in place of detoxifying irritants, aggravated Kapha surrounds the irritant with fluid to neutralize it.

The indications of the occurrence of a cyst in the body imply that the imbalances are becoming stronger, and the body’s resistance is being weakened. Hence, the repair of the imbalances is pertinent for preventing/treating diseases, with the treatment of weakened tissues typically undertaken by Ayurveda practitioners with the help of potent herbs as explained in ancient Ayurveda texts.


The conservative treatment of Branchial cleft cyst chiefly involves the prescription of antibiotics by a doctor, if the affected child has indications of an infection. The antibiotics are necessary because they can ease the swelling, by draining fluid from the cyst formed in the neck. Besides antibiotics, another treatment for Branchial cleft cyst is the use of painkillers, to reduce pain linked to the disease. However, for preventing future infections, the removal of the cyst may be required, for which the doctors usually recommend a surgical procedure.

Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing offers some beneficial herbal formulations for the management of Branchial cleft cyst in a safe and natural way. The formulations, prepared under the supervision of renowned Ayurveda experts, are prepared from 100% pure and natural herbs.

The herbal products available from Planet Ayurveda are helpful in managing Branchial cleft cyst when it is diagnosed in a child, and also for potentially preventing the occurrence of the defect during the ‘early embryonic development’ stage in pregnant women.

Planet Ayurveda's herbal products for managing Branchial cleft cyst are:

Ayurvedic Treatment of Urethral Stricture - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies


urethral Stricture

Urethral stricture is a medical condition characterized by an abnormal narrowing of the urethra (the tube which releases urine from the body).

In this condition, the passageway through which the urine flows from the bladder gets blocked or narrowed because of scarring in or around the urethra, or because of inflammation, injury or disease. In some rare cases, the condition may also be caused by external pressure from an enlarging tumour near the urethra, untreated or repetitive urinary tract infections (UTIs), or the sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Therefore, Urethral stricture is a condition which results in a decrease in urine output, due to the narrowing of the urethra. The restricted urinary flow can potentially lead to obstructive voiding dysfunction, which can have serious consequences for the entire urinary tract. 

The Urethral stricture condition is more common in men as compared to women. The chances of the occurrence of this condition are generally quite high in men who have penile implants or young boys who undergo a surgical procedure for correction of an underdeveloped urethra (hypospadias surgery). Moreover, some other risk factors associated with Urethral stricture are: surgery performed on the prostate, pelvic fractures, radiation, catheter insertion, blunt trauma to the perineum, infection (usually with Gonorrhea), or Lichen sclerosus.

Urethral stricture may totally block the flow of urine, thereby causing acute urinary retention, which is a condition that requires timely treatment. When treated in time, Urethral stricture can prevent several health complications, such as kidney or bladder infection or injury.


The most characteristic indication of the occurrence of Urethral stricture is a 'weak urinary stream.' Besides that, some of the other common symptoms of this condition include:

  • Weak urine flow or reduced volume of urine
  • Straining to urinate
  • Pain or burning sensation while passing urine
  • Frequent starting/ stopping of urinary stream
  • Sudden urge to urinate (Urinary urgency)
  • Inability to control urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain in the pelvic region or lower abdomen
  • Urethral discharge
  • Penile swelling and pain
  • Dark-coloured urine
  • Presence of blood in urine or semen
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Feeling of incomplete emptying of bladder
  • Inability to urinate at all


According to Ayurveda, Urethral stricture and other urinary problems are a result of a disturbance of ‘Apan vayu’, which is responsible for the ‘urine elimination’ function of the body.

Since the vitiated Apan vayu can lead to medical conditions linked to urination, Ayurvedic treatment of Urethral stricture basically involves the use of certain herbal formulations, which are capable of normalizing the functioning of Apan vayu. Hence, the line of treatment for the condition includes internal detoxification, along with the cleansing of the urinary tract and removal of any blockages.

Ayurveda is an ancient form of medication, which focuses on maintaining the balance of three energies or doshas in the body --- ‘Vata,’ ‘Pitta,’ and ‘Kapha.’ As such, the herbal products for managing Urethral stricture help in maintaining the balance of these three energies, for treating the condition and also ensuring overall good health and well-being.


The common treatments for Urethral stricture include Urethral dilation and some other endoscopic approaches like laser urethrotomy, self-intermittent dilation and direct vision internal urethrotomy (DVIU). However, these treatments may sometimes worsen the condition, due to which the surgical repair of the urethra in the future may become difficult.

Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company offers some excellent herbal products for managing Urethral stricture in a safe and natural manner. These products are prepared under the supervision of renowned Ayurveda experts. The products do not contain any chemicals, additives, binders, preservatives, artificial colours, of fillers.
