How to Treat Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (sJIA) Naturally?


Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA) is a rare auto-inflammatory illness that affects children who have an inherently (by birth) 'overactive' immune system. Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis affects around 10-20% of children suffering from Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), which is the most common type of arthritis in children. The occurrence of sJIA is marked by inflammation in joints and other parts of the body. Planet Ayurveda, which is an herbal manufacturing company offering beneficial herbal products for managing sJIA in a natural manner.

Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (sJIA): Introduction

Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA) is a rheumatic disease which generally affects children aged 5 years or younger. The auto-inflammatory disease is a rare, but critical, subtype of Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The disease is 'Systemic' that is, it can affect the joints as well as several internal organs of the body, including the lungs, liver, and the heart.

Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (sJIA)

Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA) is characterized by an innate 'over activity' of the immune system in affected children. The disease usually develops in children at around two years of age, though it can occur at any time till the age of 16 years. Both the genders are at an equal risk of the occurrence of sJIA. Nearly 40% of the children suffering from sJIA have a lower body height as compared to their healthy counterparts. For many patients, sJIA can be a life-long condition which can continue into adulthood.

Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA) can potentially lead to some long-term consequences for affected children. It can adversely affect normal growth and bone development, and result in slow or stunted growth, joint damage, and loss of mobility.

Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (sJIA): Causes

The exact cause triggering the onset of sJIA in children is not clearly known, because of which the condition is described as 'idiopathic.' Nonetheless, it is believed that the occurrence of the disease is associated with a combination of genetic and environmental factors. In other words, children with sJIA have a genetic predisposition for the disease which evidently gets triggered in certain environmental settings.

Children affected by sJIA have an overactive immune system which gets activated even when the body is not fighting any infection. In addition, children with sJIA also apparently have elevated blood levels of two inflammatory proteins (cytokines) – interleukin-1 (IL-1) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) – which are a key cause of inflammation in several auto-inflammatory disorders.

Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (sJIA): Symptoms

The common signs and symptoms of sJIA are:

  • Recurring fever (103 degrees or higher) which occurs daily at a specific time
  • Flat, pink-colored skin rash (on the trunk, arms or legs) noticeable during fever spikes
  • Arthritis symptoms like pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints
  • Nausea

Vasant Ritu

According to Ayurveda the year has been classified into 6 seasons and each season lasts for two months, Shishira (Winter), Vasantha (Spring), Grishma (Summer), Varsha (Monsoon), Sharat (Autumn) and Hemanta (Late autumn).

Vasanta ritu comes under Adanakala where the "Nature starts taking away the strength from its creatures".

This season can be said as a season of allergies as trees starts flourishing and pollens are released into the atmosphere where people with allergies start showing their symptoms.

Predominant Rasa during Vasantharituis Kashaya (astringent) and Mahabhuta are Prithvi and Vayu. Strength of the person remains moderate (Madhyamabala), vitiation and aggravation of Kapha Dosha occurs and Agni remains in Manda state (diminished / reduced state).

During the previous season of Shishira (Winters) the Kapha accumulated in the body starts to liquefy due to the warmer climate and this in turn the heat reduces the Agni (Digestive fire).

This leads to Prakopa (Increase) of Kapha in the body and leads to many diseases, for the same in this ritu to diminish the ill effects of kapha treatment modality Vamana (Therapeutic emesis) and Teekshna Nasya (Nasal medication) is advised.

Treatment of Rectal Polyps in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies


Rectal polyps usually occur as a harmless and asymptomatic condition, which is marked by an abnormal and unregulated cell growth that starts in the colon or rectum. The excess cell growth takes the form of polyps, which are generally considered non-cancerous. Nevertheless, the condition requires timely treatment because if the polyps increase in size, they can be lead to complications like cancer.

rectal polyps


'Rectal polyps' is a common condition of 'fleshy growth' affecting the colon (large intestine) and rectum (the bottom 12-inch section of the colon). The condition is characterized by the formation of small clumps of cells on the inner lining of the colon or rectum. Rectal polyps can affect people of almost all age-groups. However, the condition most commonly affectsadults. More specifically, the occurrence of rectal polyps is quite common in nearly 20% of adults, particularly overweight adults aged 50 years or older.

In some serious cases of delayed diagnosis and treatment of rectal polyps, patients affected by the condition can be at a potentially high risk of developing colon cancer or rectal cancer gradually over some time. If the cancer is detected at an advanced stage, it can even be fatal. Hence, it is important to have the polyps treated/removed in the early stages so that the condition does not turn into malignant cancer.


The exact cause for the occurrence of Rectal polyps is not known. Nevertheless, the condition is associated with abnormally excessive growth of healthy new cells (for replacing the old and damaged cells) in the colon or rectum.

Some of the possible causes of rectal polyps are:

  • Family history of the condition
  • Genetic factors (inheritance of a rare gene which increases the risk of developing polyps)
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Alcohol use
  • Tobacco use
  • Low-fiber and high-fat diet
  • Inflammatory intestinal disorders, like Crohn's disease and Ulcerative colitis
  • Type-2 Diabetes is not properly controlled.

Treatment of Castleman disease through Ayurveda


Castleman disease (CD) is a rare disease that affects the lymph nodes and related tissues. The disease is characterized by abnormally rapid and excessive growth of cells in the lymph nodes which are a part of the body’s immune system. Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped glands that help the body fight infections by filtering out germs. The glands are found in small groups in different parts of the body.

Castleman disease was first described as an uncommon lymph-node disorder by Dr. Benjamin Castleman in the 1950s. The disease is known by some other names also. These names are Castleman tumor, Giant lymph node hyperplasia, Angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia, Benign giant lymphoma, and Angiomatous lymphoid hamartoma.

castleman disease, Treatment of Castleman disease through Ayurveda

In people affected by Castleman disease, there is an overgrowth of cells in and around the lymph nodes. The disease can affect people of all age groups, though it most commonly affects adults. The potential risk of the occurrence of the disease is almost equal for both men and women.

Castleman disease is not officially categorized as cancer. Nonetheless, the disease can sometimes become quite serious and can increase the patient’s risk of cancers like Lymphoma (cancer of the lymph system) and Kaposi sarcoma.


Castleman Disease Is Of Two Types:

  1. Unicentric Castleman disease (UCD): UCD is the more common type of Castleman disease that affects adults in the 20s and 30s. This condition involves cell overgrowth in only one lymph node or only one region of enlarged lymph nodes, generally in the chest or abdomen.
  2. Multicentric Castleman disease (MCD): MCD is a serious form of Castleman disease which usually affects people aged between 40 and 60 years. This condition involves cell overgrowth in a number of lymph node groups throughout the body or, in other words, multiple regions of enlarged lymph nodes.


The exact cause behind the occurrence of Castleman disease is not clearly known. However, some of the possible causes that can lead to the disease are:

  • Weak immune system
  • Acquired genetic mutations
  • Inflammation
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Human herpesvirus type 8 (HHV-8)


The symptoms of Castleman disease are mostly related to the ‘Multicentric’ form of the disorder because people suffering from the ‘Unicentric’ type of disease do not initially have any noticeable symptoms.

The common signs and symptoms associated with Castleman disease are:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Night sweats
  • Poor appetite
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Anemia
  • Fluid buildup in the abdomen
  • Bruising and easy bleeding
  • Red spots on the skin
  • Skin rashes
  • Numbness in hands/feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Enlarged spleen or liver


The treatment of Castleman disease depends on whether a particular patient is suffering from the Unicentric or Multicentric form of the disorder.

Castleman disease can also be managed safely with the help of herbal or Ayurvedic products. Renowned herbal manufacturing company Planet Ayurveda offers some excellent herbal products for managing the disease in a natural manner.

Treatment of Afibrinogenemia in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies


It is a genetically inherited blood fibrinogen disorder in which the blood does not clot normally due to a lack of fibrinogen. Fibrinogen is a blood protein that is necessary for coagulation. It is transmitted in an autosomal recessive manner. The hemorrhagic conditions sometimes can be life-threatening. It occurs in approximately 1 in 1 million people. Abolghasemi and Shahverdi (2015) mention that there have been about 250 cases is reported in the world literature.

We have discussed important points like Ayurvedic aspects, symptoms, causes, risk factors, the complication with some effective home and herbal remedies.

Introduction of Afibrinogenemia

Afibrinogenemia is also known as congenital afibrinogenemia. Afibrogenemia is a rare bleeding disorder in which the absence of fibrinogen in the blood that is a protein that is essential for blood clotting. People suffering from this disease may have severe bleeding episodes, specifically during infancy or childhood. Bleeding may occur anywhere in the body including nose, skin, gastrointestinal tract, joints, liver, muscles, genitals, and urinary tract. This disorder is an autosomal recessive that means two unaffected parents can have a child with this disorder.

Afibrinogenemia, Herbal Remedies

The lack of fibrinogen can be seen with excessive and sometimes uncontrollable bleeding. Diagnosis can often be made at the time of birth because affected infants have severe bleeding in the umbilical cord. Early diagnosis of congenital afibrinogenemia will help in the treatment and also helps in preventing an individual from having severe bleeding or particularly bleeding inside the skull which can lead to death.

Ayurvedic aspect for Afibrinogenemia

Ayurveda is a traditional and ancient form of medicine. It is a holistic approach to health. The goal of Ayurveda is to maintain a healthy person's health and to alleviate disorders of the diseased. Ayurveda believes in maintaining health by balancing the mind, body, and soul. This balance can be maintained by the balance between Dosha, Dhatu, and Mala. Dosha is of three types each having its dominating factors like Vata has Air dominating factor, Pitta has Fire dominating factors and Kapha has water dominating factors. The balance between these Dosha is known as a healthy state of body and imbalance of these Dosha can cause various health problems.

According to Ayurveda, afibrinogenemia is a type of Sehajvikar (congenital) due to deficiency of the components of Raktadhatu which interfere with Raktastambhak action of Raktadhatu. People with this disease can have a higher risk of hemorrhage (severe bleeding) specifically in babies or young children. Newborns may have excessive bleeding from the umbilical cord. Pancha Mahadhutas plays an important role in the growth of a fertilized ovum and the formation and development of fetus organs.

Symptoms of Afibrinogenemia

  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Nosebleed
  • Gum bleeding
  • Bleeding into the space of joints
  • Easily bruising
  • Prolonged menstrual periods
  • Bleeding in the mucous membrane
  • Very rare bleeding inside the skull
  • Repeated miscarriages during pregnancy
  • Excessive bleeding from the minor injury
  • Central nervous system hemorrhaging
  • Spontaneous rupture of the spleen

Causes of Afibrinogenemia

1. Mutation

Each of these genes provides instruction for making one part of a protein called fibrinogen. This protein plays an important role in clotting blood. The absence of fibrinogen in the blood is caused by a mutation in one of three genes which are known as fibrinogen alpha chain FGA, beta-chain FGB, and gamma-chain FGG genes. Mutation in FGA, FGB, and FGG can affect blood levels of fibrinogen in several ways.

2. Hereditary

Congenital afibrinogenemia is caused by a complete absence of fibrinogen protein. If the child inherits only one copy of the mutated gene, he/she becomes a carrier, and will not develop afibrinogenemia. In such cases, they will only have half of the normal levels of fibrinogen. Milder disease forms as seen if the child inherits only one gene from the parent. These patients may have abnormal bleeding only during major trauma or high-risk surgical procedures.

3. Autosomal recessive

Autosomal recessive conditions are disorders that occur when two copies of an abnormal gene have been inherited on a non-sex chromosome. If both parents have an autosomal recessive condition, there is a 100% chance of passing on the mutated genes to their children. If however, only one mutant copy of the gene is inherited, the individual will carrier of the condition, but will not be present with any symptoms. Children, born to two carriers, have a 25% chance of being homozygous dominant (unaffected), a 50% chance of being heterozygous (carrier), and a 25% chance of being homozygous recessive (affected).

Risk Factors of Afibrinogenemia

The only risk factor for this condition if both parents of a child carry the recessive linked to the disorder.

Complications of Afibrinogenemia

  • A bleeding disorder is particularly disturbed the reproductive-aged women.
  • Postoperative excessive bleeding.
  • Bleeding disorders (digestive or urinary tract).
  • Bleeding in the brain it can also lead to death.
  • Heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding can lead to serious complications.

Introduction to Sarcopenia

Sarcopenia is a disease associated with the natural aging process. This leads to loss of muscle and mass, which affects balance, speed, and overall ability to perform daily activities.The common and main sign of sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass and muscle strength. It may be difficult to detect changes in body composition due to obesity, changes in fat mass or edema.The mean age of getting sarcopenia was 79.7 years old and 50.8% were male.

Not as aging

Causes of Sarcopenia

It is commonly observed in lazy and inactive people, sarcopenia also affects the people who remain physically active throughout life but occurs due to sedentary lifestyle and other reasons such as:-

  1. Change in hormone levels
  2. Protein requirements change
  3. Destruction of motor neurons

1. Change in hormone levels

Hormonal changes with age can also lead to muscle loss. Low levels of certain hormones such as growth hormones, testosterone, and insulin-like growth factors lead to reduced muscle mass.

2. Low protein production

The destruction of motor neurons and nerve cells delays the transfer of signals from the brain to the muscles for movement.

3. Destruction of motor neurons

As a person grows older, his body's ability to produce protein becomes low, this protein is needed to develop muscle. When protein production is reduced, individual muscle cells become smaller.

Suffering from Vaginismus? Get rid of it with Herbal and Home Remedies


Vaginismus is defined as an involuntary vaginal muscle spasm. This condition hinders penetration in the vagina it can cause pain during penetration; some women cannot even tolerate the insertion of a tampon.

We have discussed important steps which include important points like symptoms, type, cause, symptoms, complication, risk factors, with some effective herbal and home remedies which help to cure the disease.

Vaginismus, Herbal remedies, home remedies


Vaginismus is a condition when the muscles around the vagina tighten involuntarily with no abnormalities in the genital organ. This condition prevents any vaginal penetration.

When patients try to insert any object like tampon, penis or speculum into the vagina, it tightens up because of an involuntary contraction of muscles around the vagina. This condition can lead to generalized muscle spasms, and pain.

It can lead to emotional distress because intercourse may be painful, women generally fear it. The fear of pain makes vaginal muscle even tighter and causes increased pain when sexual intercourse is attempted. A reflex reaction develops when the vagina is pressed or sometimes even just touched, the vaginal muscles automatically tighten. Most women cannot even tolerate the insertion of a tampon.


Ayurveda is a traditional and ancient form of medicine. The goal of Ayurveda is to maintain a healthy person’s health and to alleviate disorders of the diseased. Ayurveda believes in maintaining a balance between mind, body, and soul. This balance can be maintained by the balance between Dosh, Dhatu, and Agni. Dosha is of three types Vata (Air), Pitta (fire), Kapha (water). The Balance between these three dosha is known as a healthy state of body but the imbalance between this Dosha causes various problems.

According to Ayurveda, Vaginismus is considered in the ‘Yonivayapad’. Acharya Charaka has written that when a woman having a predominance of Pitta (either due to Pitta Prakriti or consumption of diet which aggravates Pitta) withholds her natural urge of sneezing and eructation at the time of coitus, then the vitiated Pitta,  along with Vayu reaches Yoni (reproductive system) and produces its abnormalities. The Yoni (Vagina) becomes inflamed and tender due to which there is pain in lumbosacral and groin region.


  1. Primary Vaginismus: It is a lifetime condition in which the pain has always presented. It will be difficult to use a tampon. It is experienced by women during the first attempt at intercourse. The male partner is not able to insert his penis into the vagina. There may be pain, generalized muscle spasms.
  2. Secondary Vaginismus: This develops after a woman has already experienced normal sexual intercourse. It can occur at any stage of life, such as an infection, menopause, a traumatic event, relationship issues, surgery, or childbirth.
  3. Global Vaginismus: Vaginismus is always present and any object can trigger it.

A Mind-Body Approach to Depression

Depression is a serious mental disorder that is affecting the lives of people directly or indirectly. In today's world, 350 million people are affected by it. Depression is becoming a social stigma in terms of suffering, prevalence, morbidity, dysfunction and it is becoming an economic burden.

Occasionally, everyone feels sad and gloomy but these feelings pass within a couple of days, but when a person has a depressive disorder, it interferes in his or her personal life.


World Health Organization (WHO) defines depression as a common mental disorder having the symptoms such as depressed mood, feeling of guilt or low self worth, disturbed sleep, appetite, loss of interest or pleasure, loss of concentration etc.


The symptoms occur most of the day, nearly every day which include:

  • Feelings of sadness, hopelessness, emptiness or tearfulness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all the normal activities
  • Angry outbursts, frustration or irritability even over small matters
  • Disturbances in sleep such as sleeping too much or suffering from insomnia
  • Anxiety and restlessness
  • The feeling of guilt or worthlessness
  • Trouble in thinking or concentration
  • Suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide


A variety of factors are involved in depression such as:

  1. Inherited Traits: Depression is more common in those people whose blood relatives also have this condition.
  2. Hormones: The changes in the body's balance of hormones may also be involved in triggering or causing depression.
  3. Brain Chemistry: Changes in the function and effect of neurotransmitters play a role in causing depression. Neurotransmitters are naturally occurring brain chemicals that are likely to play a role in depression.


Ayurveda gives prime concern to the mind and its disorders when it is a matter of health. Negative thoughts directly affect the health of an individual. In all Ayurvedic classics, there is a description of physical disorders and their psychiatric impacts simultaneously.

Psychiatric disorders are described in Ayurveda thousands of years ago and are relevant in the present time too. In Ayurveda, it is stated that depression is a state of both emotions (mansikbhava) as well as a disease (mansikvyaadhi). In Ayurvedic terminology, depression can be co-related with avsaad, vishad, manodukhajunmada and kaphajunmada.

The understanding of pathology of depression by means of basic principles of Ayurveda such as sharirikdosha (body humor), mansikdosha (mental state), jnanendriya (sense organs), karmendriya (motor organs), satwabala (strength of mind), agni (biological fire), dhatus (tissues sustaining the body), ojas (vital essence of life) are essential.


In Ayurveda, it is mentioned that every disease has a predominance of any of the humor i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

  • Most of the cardinal features of depression are due to the vitiation of Vata dosha. Vata dosha governs all the movements of mind and body.
  • Vata dosha mainly Prana Vata controls the manas (mind) as it has the property of retaining intellect.
  • Along with Prana Vata, Sadhaka Pitta and Vyana Vata which are located in heart are responsible for emotions are also vitiated.
  • In depression, the predominant dosha is tamas which is characterized by ignorance, apathy and inactivity.
  • So, depression is also a condition of tamo predominance over rajas.


In Ayurveda, the treatment of depression is focused on mind-body approach. Ayurvedic treatment includes internal medications, external therapeutic procedures and diet.


Planet Ayurveda offers various herbal remedies for depression that are effective and are aimed at purification of manovahasrotas and also act as Rasayana as depression debilitates the person both mentally and physically.

How often you go for a pelvic examination? If you consult your gynaecologist you may be familiar with term Bulky uterus. As the term itself explains bulky uterus means uterus that is bulkier than its normal size. Usually, this situation arises after two or more deliveries due to an increase in the muscular lining of the uterus which causes it to be bulkier than the normal weight or normal size. Gynaecologists usually recommend for the uterus surgery but many patients prefer alternative methods to get rid of the bulky uterus. Ayurveda offers you with the best alternative treatment that helps you treating bulky uterus along with other health benefits. Here, we are providing you all the necessary details about the problem, including its meaning, symptoms, causes, and the herbal remedies to relieve the same.


Generally, the woman doesn't know and is not aware of the fact that they have a bulky uterus, they usually discover it during the pelvic examination or and in some cases when women face pain in their uterus. The Uterus is the muscular organ of the female reproductive organ usually called a womb. A woman's uterus is normally small in size but has the tendency to grow as much as bigger due to its ability to stretch, especially at the time of delivering a baby. The Bulky uterus is the term used for -Increase in the size of woman's uterus than its normal size i.e., 8*4*4cm. It is observed that there is an increase in the glandular muscle in the uterus wall which causes the uterus to expand or grow slightly heavier.

bulky uterus, uterine fibroids

Usually the women face this problem in the following situations:

  1. After menopause
  2. The age group of more than 30yrs
  3. Pregnant women after delivery


Women with the bulky uterus may suffer with one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Heaviness in the lower abdominal area
  • Gaining weight
  • Heavy bleeding and cramps during menstruation
  • Constipation
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Backache
  • Leg cramps
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Feeling pressured during urination
  • Acne
  • Unnecessary hair growth
  • Tender breast tissues
  • Pale skin


There may be many reasons responsible for bulky uterus, such as:

  • Uterine Fibroids - Fibroids are abnormal tissue growth or the tumors on the wall of the uterus. Hormonal imbalances or genetic disorders cause an increase in these tissues. Hence, these tissues cause an increase in the size and weight of the uterus hence resulting in the bulky uterus. These tissues are noncancerous and usually develop during pregnancy or the childbearing years. These fibroids don't have any side effects but it causes pain during menstruation, heavy bleeding and pain in the pelvic region. Genetic disorders, early puberty are the reasons for the growth of these fibroids.
  • Post Pregnancy - Women's uterus enlarges at the time of delivering a baby through a C-section. There is a growth of muscle mass in the specific area of the uterus called Adenomyosis. It causes the uterus wall to swell and causes pelvic pain. It can also cause heavy bleeding, cramps and longer periods. It is mostly observed in women post-pregnancy or women above 30 years of age.
  • Endometrial Cancer - Also called cancer developed in uterus. This cancer tissue causes the uterus lining to swell and hence causes bulky uterus. Abnormal and frequent vaginal bleeding, vaginal discharge, and difficulty in urination are the primary symptoms. Get a pelvic examination and consult a gynaecologist if a severe problem occurs. This cancer spreads slowly so you have to get the treatment as soon as possible to prevent it from spreading it to bladder, vagina or fallopian tubes.
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) - PCOS is caused by hormonal imbalance and increases the male hormone (androgen) in the female body. It causes irregular and prolonged periods among women of reproductive age. PCOS is the growth of cysts on the outer edges and enlarged ovaries. Excess hair growth, acne, and obesity are the symptoms of PCOS. It affects the shedding of the endometrial lining that usually occurs at the time of menstruation. The accumulation of this endometrial lining during menstruation causes the uterus to feel heavy or bulky.
  • Ovarian Cysts - The Female reproductive system has two types of ovaries located on both sides of the uterus. Ovarian cysts are the fluid or solid sac-like structure that grows in the ovaries causing pain during urination, abnormal bloating, painful bowel movements, breast tenderness, and these cysts grow on their own. Get a pelvic examination to check whether these cysts are cancerous or noncancerous.


The bulky uterus is not a life-threatening disease but the reasons that cause bulky uterus causes health problems that have to be treated properly to avoid any health complexities.

  • Pain In The Pelvic Region- Fibroids, and cysts causes enlargement of the uterus lining causing the constant pain in the lower abdomen and the pelvic region.
  • Heavy Bleeding- PCOS and ovarian cysts cause heavy bleeding at the time of menstruation.
  • Urine Infection- Swelling in the uterus lining and pressure during urination can give rise to various yeasts and bacterial infections.
  • Infertility- Fibroids and adenomyosis cause severe pains at the time of pregnancy and may result in miscarriage or infertility.


The constant abdominal pain, pelvic pain, vaginal infection, and uterus swelling which is felt by women herself, calls her to consult a gynaecologist. A gynaecologist will do a pelvic examination, CT scan and ultrasound to check the health issue causing the ill health.
