How Can Ayurveda Help In Treating Pheochromocytoma?

Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor which develops in an adrenal gland. This tumor is also known as a pharmacological time bomb. It is usually noncancerous and arises from cells called chromaffin cells. Usually, this tumor emerges in one of the adrenal glands particularly in the adrenal medulla which is located above the kidneys. The adrenal gland produces adrenaline hormone which is released in stressful conditions and helps the body to react in a dangerous or emergency situation. It causes increased heart rate and blood pressure. Now in case of Pheochromocytoma, uncontrolled adrenaline is released which can result in stroke, heart attack, or death.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Lymphangiectasis - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

Lymphangiectasia is also known as protein-losing gastroenteropathy. It is a rare disease in which there occurs dilatation of lymph vessels of intestines resulting in excessive loss of lymph fluid into the gastrointestinal tract. It leads to hypoproteinemia, lymphocytopenia, edema, and immunologic anomalies. All these things lead to malabsorption.

WHAT CAN BE THE CAUSES OF LYMPHANGIECTASIA?

  1. The exact cause of this disease is not known in case of idiopathic Lymphangiectasia.
  2. In the second type of Lymphangiectasia, the cause can be improperly formed lymph vessels or blockage of lymph flow from the intestine. It can also be the result of obstructed lymphatics which leads to abnormal lymph drainage.
  3. Right-sided heart failure or pericarditis.
  4. Inflammation of lymphatics as in case of inflammatory bowel disease.

WHAT CAN BE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF LYMPHANGIECTASIA?

  • Chronic diarrhea

Well, if you do not take steps to control this condition then it can get worse and may damage your lungs. Don't worry; it can be well controlled with medications. But, do not leave it unattended. Instead, get the proper treatment done. Before we jump on how to manage this condition with natural remedies, it is better you learn about this condition, its symptoms and causes, first.

WHAT IS ALLERGIC BRONCHOPULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS (ABPA)?

Well, Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) is an allergic reaction to a fungus known as Aspergillus fumigatus. Aspergillus fumigatus is fungi found in several places such as soil, water or dust etc. It occurs when you breathe in this harmful fungus.

CAUSE OF ABPA

Ingestion of Aspergillus fungus can cause a chronic allergic reaction that may lead to inflammation (swelling) of the lungs. Most of us are frequently exposed to this fungus but the reaction to this fungus is rarely seen in people with normal immune functions. While in some people, immune system acts too vigorously to this fungus and may damage the airways. This can lead to serious condition, lung damage.

HOW BOOSTING IMMUNE SYSTEM CAN HELP COMBAT ABPA?

Are you worried from stepping out in the season of a dusty storm just because you are afraid that you may experience allergic symptoms, later? "Yes"! On the other hand, your friend is walking in the afternoon through blossoming fields without experiencing any allergic symptoms. Why it is so? Simple, it's because of the immune system! What is the role of your immune system, here? Keep on reading to get an answer of this question!

Our immune system, when in balance, does a seamless job of providing protection to our body by eliminating potential threats such as toxins, dust, bacteria and virus etc. So, you can say, your friend may have a balanced immune system. What about your immune system? Think about it!

Well, sometimes the immune system overreacts to a foreign substance present in the environment. When our body acts to eliminate this threat, we may experience allergic reaction symptoms such as a runny nose, coughing, itchy or watery eyes. Moreover, this overactive immune system can affect lungs as well. Now, you may be wondering if your immune system is overactive or not. Chances are, you may have an unbalanced immune system.

People with asthma may notice that their asthma symptoms are progressing or worsening. So, take extra care of yourself, if you are already an asthmatic.

AYURVEDA - AN ANCIENT HEALTHCARE TRADITION

Ayurveda has been practiced in India for at least 5000 years. It has gained popularity in the western world also, though as an alternative medicine system. According to Ayurvedic principles, everyone has a specific prakurti that determines his health and disease vulnerability. Prakurti is determined by 3 "doshas" (pitta, vata and kapha) known as bodily energies. Disturbances in any of the three doshas may leave an individual more susceptible to a health condition.

The basic concept of Ayurveda is to maintain your health without looking at disease but at the host. That means it will help you manage your condition by targeting the root cause. Ayurveda believes in balancing the affected dosha while managing the symptoms of any disease. The interesting thing, Ayurvedic medicines do not cause side effects.

Von Willebrand Disease ‘Type 3’ (Bleeding Disorder)

Von Willebrand Disease

Von Willebrand disease is a common, lifelong bleeding disorder which results from a deficiency or abnormality of a multi-adhesive protein called 'Von Willebrand factor' (VWF) which helps the blood to clot.

The VWF protein is responsible for binding together the platelets, which are the tiny cells that circulate in the blood to plug broken blood vessels and stop bleeding. Low levels of functional VWF in people suffering from Von Willebrand disease affect the clotting ability of the platelets, thereby leading to prolonged bleeding.

Von Willebrand disease is generally considered an inherited bleeding disorder, but it can also sometimes develop later in life. The disease affects both men and women at the same rate.

‘Type 3’ Von Willebrand disease is rare, but the most severe, form of the bleeding disorder.

In the most common 'Type 1' of the disease, the level of platelets in the blood is lower than normal; while in 'Type 2' of the disease, the levels of VWF are normal, but it cannot work properly due to structural or functional defects. However, in Type 3 Von Willebrand disease, the body produces very little or no VWF, and potentially puts an individual at the risk of heavy bleeding which can be so severe that it may include joint, muscle or gastrointestinal bleeding.

Von Willebrand disease can lead to several health complications, such as Anaemia (iron deficiency in the body), pain and swelling, and even death from uncontrolled bleeding. The risk of complications resulting can be higher for women than in men, because of a higher chance of bleeding during menstruation, pregnancy, and childbirth.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF VON WILLEBRAND DISEASE

The main cause behind the occurrence of Von Willebrand disease is a genetic mutation, which is inherited by an affected individual from one or both parents. The inherited faulty gene causes problems with the VWF protein which plays a key role in the blood-clotting process.

People who have inherited only one copy of the mutated gene usually develop Type 1 or Type 2 Von Willebrand disease, but people who inherit a mutated gene from both parents suffer from Type 3 Von Willebrand disease.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF VON WILLEBRAND DISEASE

The symptoms of Von Willebrand disease may be mild or severe and may start at any age. The symptoms generally depend on the type of Von Willebrand disease a person may be suffering from. However, some of the symptoms common to all the three types of the disease are:

  • Easy bruising
  • Getting large and lumpy bruises
  • Excessive and long-lasting nosebleeds
  • Bleeding from the gums
  • Heavy or prolonged bleeding after tooth removal or surgery
  • Abnormally heavy bleeding during menstruation (in women)
  • Blood in urine due to bleeding in the kidneys or bladder
  • Blood in stool (feces) due to bleeding in intestines or stomach.

VON WILLEBRAND DISEASE: AYURVEDIC VIEWPOINT

According to Ayurveda, blood tissue is one of the seven tissues (Dhatu) of the body. Since blood (Rakta) is associated with the body’s Pitta dosha, bleeding disorders like Von Willebrand disease mostly occur due to a Pitta imbalance.

In Ayurveda, a collective term used for all bleeding disorders is ‘Raktapitta.’ Ayurvedic experts believe that bleeding disorders are usually caused by excessive intake of warm (ushna), penetrative (teekshna), salty (lavana), sour (amla), and spicy (vidahi) foods, as well as other foods or drinks which can aggravate Pitta dosha. Moreover, in some cases, excessive exposure to the sun, or working n the sun for long periods, can also cause bleeding disorders.

VON WILLEBRAND DISEASE: TREATMENT

The treatment of Von Willebrand disease is chiefly focused on stopping or preventing bleeding episodes, particularly with the help of medications which enable the formation of blood clots by platelets.

Though the treatment plan for patients suffering from Von Willebrand disease usually varies in accordance with the type of condition they have, some of the treatment options for the disease include drug therapies, nonreplacement therapy, replacement therapy, and topical treatments.
