Dravet syndrome comes under the SCN1A- related seizure disorders and is known as the most severe form between all of other types. Febrile seizures tend to be the first sign that appears in affected infants in which fever is followed by attack of epilepsy. These seizures are usually difficult to treat as compared to its other types. Dravet syndrome also causes other signs and symptoms like low intellect, loss of motor skills, impairment of speech, and difficult movements. Improper working of SCN1A gene is responsible for most of the cases of Dravet syndrome. Familuy history is mostly absent in Dravet syndrome cases however where it is present the gene is inherited in autosomal dominant pattern.

Ayurvedic Management for Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia

Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia is also known as Castleman's disease which is a disorder that affects lymph nodes and its related tissues. AGH is a lymphoproliferative disorder whose etiology is unknown. Involvement of virus is suspected in causation of Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia.

In this article we will be learning about the clinical presentation, causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis and management of the disorder by herbal remedies offered by Planet Ayurveda.

Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia


AGH is also known by many other names like Giant lymph node hyperplasia, Castleman's disease, Angiofollicular lymph hyperplasia, out of which the Castleman's disease is the most common name. It is a rare disorder that targets the lymph nodes and related tissues. AGH is mainly of two types, Multicentric AGH and Unicentric AGH. Both of them affect a person in a very different manner. In Unicentric AGH the single side or set of the lymph nodes get affected and it does not spread in whole body. Abdominal or chest lymph nodes are most commonly affected in this. Lymph nodes affected by AGH gets larger than the usual and start to press into other surrounding tissues or organs that result in signs and symptoms. Like in case the lymph nodes are of abdomen or chest area than the feeling of discomfort arises in abdomen or chest and there can be seen later difficulty in breathing. When the lymph nodes of neck, armpit or groin region are affected and become larger than they can be felt easily in a local examination. In this case the conservative mode of treatment suggests for surgical removal of lymph nodes that can bring many more adverse effects along with it. The exact cause behind the AGH is not known yet however activity of certain virus is reported in many studies, but that is also not confirmed. There is no family history found in this disorder and it occurs sporadically.


Signs and symptoms may vary from person to person affected by Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia. However there are certain sets of symptoms that can be seen in a patient affected by it:

  • Pain in abdomen
  • Decreased hemoglobin or anemia
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Elevated Erythrocyte sedimentation rate
  • Weakness and tiredness


The exact cause lying behind the AGH is not known yet or poorly known. However some studies suggests that there is a substance produced by lymph nodes in case of infections to coordinate with immune system that is known as Interleukin-6. There occurs increased production of this substance in lymph nodes that eventually leads to overgrowth of the lymph nodes and hence producing the signs and symptoms. Certain researches also found out a link with viral activity of human herpes virus type 8.


Diagnosis of the AGH is made by medical history, physical examination, and certain tests like CT scan, MRI and ultrasound. Physical examination reveals enlarge and palpable lymph nodes due to which doctor suspect the disease and further diagnostic tests confirm the diagnosis.


Treatment of AGH depends upon various factors like type of the disease, unicentric or muticentric. In unicentric type the surgery is recommended to remove the localized enlarged lymph nodes. In multicentric type the line of treatment is to treat the underlying infection be it herpes or HIV. Other immunosuppressing drugs are also given. These medications can cause many side effects.

Constipation (Vibandha) Management with Ayurveda

Constipation refers to the infrequent bowel movements in which it is difficult to pass stools. It makes defecation difficult and painful. It affects not only the frequency but also the consistency of the stools. The constipation is a symptom rather than a disease. It is a very common gastrointestinal problem that basically occurs due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This problem is more common in children and pregnant women, whereas, in general, it can affect anyone.

Constipation (Vibandha)

As per Ayurveda, Constipation is considered as "Vibandha'. Particularly, it comes under 'Purishvaha srotas vyadhis'.

This condition arises due to the vitiation of Vata dosha and Mandagni (low digestive fire).


Dietary Factors (Aaharaj Karana)

The foods which are Ruksha (dry), Guru paki (heavy to digest), and Sheeta (Cold) will affect digestion and responsible for constipation.

  • Less intake of fibrous diet.
  • Excessive fasting.
  • Irregular food habits - Not taking the meals at proper time intervals.
  • Excessive intake of Kashaya (Astringent), Katu (Pungent) and Tikta (Bitter) foods.
  • Less liquid intake.

Lifestyle Factors (Viharaj Karana)

Excessive indulgence in Vyayam (Strenuous exercises) and Vayvaye (Sexual intercourse).

  • Vega dharana - Suppressing the natural urges especially Mutra (Micturition) and Purisha (Defecation).
  • Mental status (Mansik Karna) - Excessive grief can aggravate Vata dosha.
  • Occupational hazard - Usually the sitting jobs affect the intestinal peristalsis.
  • Diseases - Any associated diseases like inflammatory bowel disorders, Paralytic ileus, Piles, Structural deformities and even a few systemic diseases can cause constipation.
  • Pregnancy – Usually during pregnancy, constipation is quite common due to aggravated intra-abdominal pressure. 
  • Medicines - Even certain medicines can cause constipation.


The signs and symptoms are as follows:

  • Hard stools
  • Anorexia (Aruchi)
  • Abdominal pains (Udar shoola)
  • Bloating (Anah)
  • Flatulence (Atop)
  • Indigestion (Ajirna)
  • Acidity (Amlapita)
  • Headache (Shira shola)


  1. Excessive indulgence in the activities and food items which affects Vata dosha in the body
  2. Aggravates vata dosha in our body (Vata Prakopa)
  3. Gets localized in Intestines (Pakwashya)
  4. Affects Purishwaha srotas
  5. Brings dryness in the colon hence affects the intestinal peristalsis and consistency of stools hence develops difficulty in evacuation.


The management of low back pain:

  • Detoxifies the Colon
  • Maintain the Agni
  • Subsides the Vata and Kapha dosha


Vibandha can be easily managed with the medicines.

Initially we can detoxify our body with the help of Shodhana chikitsa (Purification therapies). Therapies like Basti (Medicated Enema), Virechana (Purgative Therapy), Varti (Suppositories) are beneficial in this condition.

Shaman Chikitsa includes the administration of internal medicines so for managing this problem Planet Ayurveda has a perfect solution.

Treatment of Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is a rare disorder which occurs due to inherited abnormally mutated genes. This bleeding disorder is presented by impairment in the function of the platelets that are responsible for clotting of blood. In this article we will discuss about the signs and symptoms, causes, diagnostic tests and herbal treatment through herbal formulations offered by Planet Ayurveda.

Glanzamann’s thrombasthenia


Platelets are the type of blood cells that helps in clotting of blood at the site of injury. Whenever there occurs a injury to any blood vessel and blood start to ooze out these sticky, small cells rush to the site and stick together to clog the injured site to prevent further bleeding. There are many glycoproteins at the surface of the platelets that help in their function. If any of these glycoprotein goes missing from the platelet's surface than the blood clotting do not occur effectively as the stable fibrin clot is not created. Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is also one of these bleeding disorder where the platelets do not function properly. In this disorder, the glycoprotein is missing from the surface of the platelets which is responsible for the sticking together of the platelets through fibrinogen. Hence, platelets cannot make a plug by sticking together. Patients suffering from Glanzmann's thrombasthenia suffer from abnormal bleeding which can be severe. If this disorder is left untreated the hemorrhage can lead to life threatening situation.


Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia is characterized by the easy bruising tendency and bleeding abnormally. This symptom can be seen just after the birth or may be after short span of time. The abnormal or excessive bleeding is usually seen after any surgical procedure performed in that particular patient suffering from this syndrome. Some of the other signs and symptoms that are seen are:

  • Easy bruising
  • Nose bleed or epistaxis
  • Gums bleeding
  • Bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract intermittently
  • Red or purple spots on skin due to bleeding from small blood vessels under the skin
  • Heavy menstrual flow in women
  • Abnormal excessive bleeding after injury or surgery
  • Too much bleeding after giving birth to the child

There are some symptoms which can be seen in patients rarely with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia

  • Bleeding in the head leading to headache, dizziness, pain in neck or unconsciousness
  • Bleeding in the joints
  • Bleeding the GIT causing black stool color, vomiting consist of blood

Glanzmann's thrombasthenia can be differentiated from other bleeding disorders like Hemophilia A and B as in the former there is more mucocutaneous bleeding while in later there tends to occur muscle or joint bleeding more commonly.


Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is an inherited bleeding disorder which occurs due to inheritance of a mutated gene in autosomal recessive pattern. It affects both males and female equally. Both the parents of such patients are carrier of a recessive abnormal gene that is transferred during fertilization and the child presents the syndrome with full flashed symptoms.


Initially on noticing the abnormal bleeding by the doctor, patient is advised to go for the tests determining the time of clotting, i.e. Prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time. These tests help to know the exact time the plasma of the person takes to clot. However these tests shows the increased time in person suffering from Glanzamann's thrombasthenia. Hence, patient is suggested to go for Platelet functional assay which shows the complete detail of platelets function and abnormalities present in it. At last the test used to confirm this syndrome is Flow cytometry.


Usually the patients suffering from Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is given platelet transfusion which is told to be carried throughout the life. This syndrome is generally treated symptomatically. As it is a inherited genetic disorder so cure to it is not possible, however the Ayurveda can help you out through this naturally. Ayurveda offers herbal medicines and methods that naturally help in managing the condition. In Ayurveda the disease occurs due to vitiation of the doshas and bringing back to balance can help in managing and treating the disease to certain extent in inherited diseases as well.
