Ayurvedic Treatment for Kallmann Syndrome - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

Puberty is a phase of a human’s life which comes with a lot of changes that are needed to be young and leave childhood days. Delayed or Absent Puberty can be seen in many people, not generally, but rarely. The thing is though it is rare, it can never be ignored as just a natural thing. This delay consequently causes a lot of life problems emotionally, mentally, and physically as well. So, let us understand what the medical system names this deformity and how the traditional system, Ayurveda, is helping people in reducing its effects and improving their life.


Kallmann syndrome can be considered as a neuro-hormonal disorder of Gonadotropin Releasing hormone production and olfactory bulb. It is a form of congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism associated with partial or complete loss of smell (hyposmia or anosmia). There is impairment in the production of hormones that control sexual development, along with the failure of olfactory bulb development, which leads to defects in the sense of smell. This impairment in sexual hormones leads to obstruction in starting puberty or completing it naturally and also results in infertility. This can occur both in males and in females. It can be identified either during infancy, early adolescent period or in adults when infertility problems arise. But, it is very difficult to diagnose it in childhood.

Kallmann syndrome


The spectrum of symptoms varies in each individual. From the newborn to an adult, the symptoms differ with respect to their body development.

Reproductive Symptoms

  • In infancy, there might be cryptorchidism (undescended testis into scrotum) or micropenis (no fully developed penis).
  • Childhood may be mostly normal.
  • At Young age, Disruption of Puberty with either limited or absence of secondary sexual characters.
    • In males: Reduced or no facial and pubic hair growth, immature voice, decreased testicular enlargement etc. Breast enlargement is also seen rarely. Loss of Libido (sexual drive) and erectile dysfunction also occurs.
    • In females: Absence of first periods (menstruation) and no or little breast development. Sometimes menarche may be present but its cessation occurs after some cycles.
  • Non-reproductive symptoms of Kallmann Syndrome
    • Cleft lip and palate
    • Absence of a kidney
    • Hearing loss
    • Skeletal abnormalities


The long-term health consequences of kallmann syndrome can be put into two categories:

  1. Physical - It involves weak bone health, osteopenia or osteoporosis, anemia, and metabolic problems like weight gain, risk to diabetes, etc.
  2. Psychological - Kallmann syndrome affects their intimate life in several ways which can deteriorate the mental health. In adolescent age, they get isolated from their peers due to their distinct behavioral pattern.


Coming to an early diagnosis in case of kallmann syndrome is really critical. Mostly, the patient himself can feel the difference between themselves and others and consult a doctor. As far as the diagnosis is considered, there is no gold standard test for kallmann syndrome. Even though no simple diagnostic blood test is there, the following can be taken into consideration:

  • Detailed clinical examination and family history
  • Hormonal tests involving LH (luteinizing hormone), FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone), testosterone, estradiol, etc. are examined which are low in case of Kallmann syndrome.
  • Bone density exams are often done to assess the bone growth.
  • MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) is done to rule out the presence of any tumors causing delayed puberty.


Since, it is a genetic disorder, changes or mutation in certain genes results in this syndrome whose causes are unknown. Males are more prone to it than females. It may occur with or without a family history but sometimes a person with Kallmann syndrome may have somebody with delayed puberty, hearing loss or anosmia in their pedigree.


Treatment of kallmann syndrome mainly involves two approaches:

  • Inducing secondary sexual characters in puberty
  • Specialized treatment for infertility

Generally hormone replacement therapies are performed and treatment may continue for the lifetime which have many adverse effects on Life. So, here’s an alternative treatment which does not cause any bad effect on health, rather improve your natural appearance and body growth.


Ayurveda describes the various features of Kallmann syndrome under the contexts of ‘Shandatha’ or ‘Napumsakatha’ in male and ‘Artavadosha’, ‘Anartava’ (amenorrhoea), ‘vandhyatwa’ (female infertility), etc. in female. We can find these references in most of the Ayurveda classics and the treatment is done according to the symptoms. Along with proper regimen and healthy foods, Ayurvedic drugs can do wonders in this disorder. Generally, ‘Vatanulomana’ (regulation of vata dosha), ‘Amahara’ (removal of toxins), ‘Vajikarana’ (aphrodisiac) drugs are used for the treatment. Digestive fire and vitiated dosha is also considered. Sodhana chikitsa (purificatory therapies) are also advised depending on the condition of the patient.
