Ayurvedic Remedies for ITP - Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) is a syndrome in which our immune system gets activated against our own body cells thereby resulting in decreased count of platelets. As a result of which reddish or purple spots, bruises, internal or external bleeding etc can occur in the body depending on the severity of the condition.

Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura


In Ayurveda, ITP comes under the context of 'Raktapitta' (bleeding disorders). Here, aggravation of pitta dosha takes place in the body which in turn vitiates the rakta dhatu (blood). This vitiation mainly commences in the spleen and liver, as these are considered to be the main sites of rakta (blood) and progresses to other parts of the body. Although modern science considers it to be a disease of unknown origin, Ayurveda mentions the excess usage of ushna (hot), theekshana (sharp), amla (sour), katu(pungent) and vidahi (which causes burning sensation) food items, over exposure to heat and sun etc as the main underlying causes for ITP.


In the treatment of ITP, Ayurveda mainly focuses on pitta shamana (normalising pitta), without disturbing the other doshas. Strength of the patient, severity of disease and abstaining from the etiological factors are also given prime importance. Either ‘Langhana’ (fasting) or ‘Tarpana’ (nourishing therapy) is administered by considering the involvement of ‘amadosha’ (toxic waste). Elimination therapies like ‘vamana’ (medicated emesis) or ‘virechana’ are advocated in extremely aggravated dosha conditions keeping in view of the strength of the patient. Strict diet and regimen has to be followed post these therapies.

For drinking purposes, water boiled and cooled with drugs like chandana (Santalum album), usheera (Vetiveria zizanioides), Musta (Cyperus rotundus), Parpataka (Fumaria officinalis) etc is generally given. Otherwise simply boiled and cooled water can also be used. Water is given either in small quantities or till the limit of satisfaction. Since madhura (sweet), thiktha(bitter) and kasaya (astringent) tastes reduce pitta dosha, these can be predominantly used by ITP patients. Commonly available items like Aloe vera, wheat grass, Papaya leaves, pomegranate, gooseberry etc can be used judiciously in this condition as it helps in increasing the platelet count. Despite being sour in nature gooseberry is indicated in ITP, as it is having sweet taste after digestion which is beneficial. Sheeta Virya (cold potency) drugs like Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna), Durva (Cynodon dactylon), chandana (Santalum album), Ashoka (Saraca asoca) etc are much useful in pitta imbalance disorders like ITP.


Planet Ayurveda renders the best suitable treatment for ITP. These medicines stimulate the bone marrow for platelet production, pacifies pitta and maintains equilibrium. They are:

A permanent or complete cure cannot be assured even after taking these treatments which are highly expensive and risky, with side-effects.

Mystic Chebe Powder for Healthy Hair

Premature greying and hair loss are not a modern dilemma, throughout cultures, men and women have always looked at ways to keep their hair lush and beautiful. There are numerous types of hair out there and we all want the best of ourselves. Now with the immense accumulation of stress that we all have to tackle at an individualist level, resulting in more hair issues than before. Often hair loss may also be due to some underlying pathological involvement, which can only be tackled by an ayurvedic physician.

For the past year or so, there has been a rising dependence on the chebe powder. Now if you are not familiar with what it is, it is a blend of powders from plants initially made by the women of African republic of Chad. It is understood that this mystic blend is the footing for luscious locks among the women of Southern African countries.

Mystic Chebe Powder & Healthy Hair

It consists of cherry seeds, lavender, croton (Croton zambialis), resin tree sap and cloves. Since this is a traditional recipe there have been many regional variations with additions of local herbs of the same. Another combination of chebe powder used widely in the Asian countries constitute for cassia (Cassia fistula), fenugreek (Trigonella feoenumgraecum), Indian gooseberry (Embelica officinalis) , Makoi (Aristotelia chilensis), Ginseng (Panax ginseng), Avocado fruit and seed, Burdock or Arctium root, parsley, babassu oil (Attalea speciosa) and black castor oil (Ricinus communius).


Chebe powder offers a spacious content of benefits to support optimal hair growth and maintenance. A few of the benefits include:

1. Optimal pH Maintenance

Since the scalp is the foundation for hair, it is important to keep it as healthy as possible. The ideal ph. of the scalp is slightly acidic with a range of 4.5 to 5. It is when the pH of the scalp is off, we face all sorts of problems including dandruff, which transcend the pH scale to alkaline. So something that can keep this alkalinity of place is necessary. This is where chebe powder has shown up, the alkaloids in this blend helps to normalise the scalp pH and support hair growth.

2. Hair Growth

By inducing and reestablishing the lost scalp pH, it supports more follicle retention. Moreover, once the follicles are more exposed to hair packs and oils it further nourishes the hair roots and induces more hair growth.

3. Anti-inflammatory Properties

The use of natural herbs in this blend makes it a potent anti-inflammatory hair tonic. Presence of itching, tenderness or redness in the scalp are indications of inflammation. When you tend to use a lot of chemical based hair products and don't bother to wash them off, overtime it builds to form inflammation. The soothing effect of chebe powder will wash the build-up away while healing your scalp so that your hair follicles can remain strong.

4. Natural Conditioner

Deep conditioning is the key to growing and maintaining long healthy hair. Even though the single usage of chebe powder alone does not provide that much conditioning to the hair, it is advised to mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of your conditioner with chebe powder and then apply in your hair after shampooing.

5. Moisture Between Wash

If you feel that the hair becomes dry and brittle on the 3rd day of a wash, chebe powder suspends that dilemma for you. Alongside this if you feel like the hair needs a little reinforcement between the wash days, especially on the ends of your hair, it is always better to apply some chebe butter on the hair as a solution.

A very common myth regarding hair growth is that only a few types of hair grow while the others do not. Which is absolutely not correct, it is true that the stature and rate of growth of hair do depend from person to person, but all hair types are always on the go to grow. The chebe hair mask was formulated with the idea and hope that, over time and with consistent use, you will start to notice growth and overall thickness to your hair.


  • Mix the required quantity of chebe powder needed for your hair with sufficient water in a bowl and fold into a smooth blend.
  • Apply a thin layer to freshly washed hair or damp the hair and then apply. Cover it with a towel or plastic sheet and leave it for 1 hour.
  • Rinse with cold water with conditioner mixed chebe powder and make sure to completely wash the remains off the hair.

It is always important to keep in mind that natural remedies do not provide you with answers overnight and the consistent use of them is necessary to achieve your necessities.


Ayurvedic hair care is rooted in our history, with the prudent use of hair oils, serums, herbal masks, etc. The effective combination of cooling and cleansing herbs are necessary to manage the hair optimally from within. Ayurveda mentions the use of simple Triphala, a blend of Amla (Embelica officilalis), Bhibitha (Terminalia chebula), Haritaki (Terminalia bellerica) to wash hair to offer a natural cleanse. The three fruits of Triphala all target different systemic organs and together they create a synergistic formula that reaches out into every tissue element of Dhatu of the body.

According to Ayurveda, the hair or Roma is understood as the Dhatu Mala or subsidiary tissue element of Asthi Dhatu. Along with these it is important to enhance the digestive ability and to undertake good diet practices to have good hair growth. The condition of your hair is an indication of how well your body is absorbing nutrients.

Despite being over 5000 years old, Ayurveda offers quite an impressive amount of treatment strategies to optimise hair growth with the right systemic interventions, all which remain tact even today. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic system of medicine with incredible wisdom to offer. And at the end of the day you will be most served by the practices that best align you with who you are and with what is nourishing and supporting your hair type.

Testicular Microlithiasis Treatment in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

As we all know that for reproductive purposes there is a system known as a reproductive system also called as genital system consisting of several internal and external organs. Any types of disease or disorder which can retard the normal function of the reproductive system are known as reproductive disorders. One of them is testicular microlithiasis, a disorder of male reproductive system. This is the disease of testis and can lead to the cancer of testis, so this should be treated in early stages. In this article we are going to discuss the testicular microlithiasis and herbal remedies of Planet Ayurveda effective in managing the Testicular microlithiasis.

Pain in Testicles


Testes are the oval shaped organs which are covered by a skin layering known as Scrotum. These testes are responsible for the production and storage of the sperms which are one of the main parts of male reproductive system but when  small clumps of calcium get collected on the testicles this condition is known as Testicular microlithiasis. This condition is non-progressive and uncommon in which tiny, uniform; numerous calcium clusters are present in one or on both the testes. Acharya Shushrut explains the Anatomy of testes by saying Mamsa asruk Kapha Medaha parsadad Vrishno (Shushrut Sharir-4/30), which means testes are made up of the muscles, fat, blood and other derivatives.


The exact cause of Testicular microlithiasis is not known but some factors which are associated with this are:

  1. Mumps
  2. Testicular cancer- in some cases
  3. Infertility in males
  4. Cryptorchidism
  5. Intraepithelial germ cell neoplasia

But according to the Ayurveda concept, Testicular microlithiasis is mainly caused by suppression of the impulse of the semen.


Testicular microlithiasis can be correlated with the Shukraz mutraskrichha, in which discharged of semen is contaminated by the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) separately which are situated in the urinary bladder produce pain in the phallus and pelvic region, cause difficulty in passing urine mixed with the semen and pelvic as well as testicles get stiffened, swollen and intensely painful.

(Charak Chikitsa-26/42)


Generally Testicular microlithiasis is asymptomatic but there can be pain and inflammation may be reported. There is presence of some signs and symptoms due to some associated diseases. If this is associated with testicular cancer then symptoms and signs may include:

  1. Testicles may swollen
  2. Pain in the testes
  3. Painless lump on the testes which may vary in size
  4. Heaviness or Aching in the lower abdomen or scrotum
  5. Lump does not go away and remain persistent to the testicles
  6. Large size lymph nodes of abdomen or neck


Testicular Microlithiasis Is Of Two Types:

  1. Classical Testicular Microlithiasis - These are present with 5 microcalcifications in one or both of the testes.
  2. Limited Testicular Microlithiasis - There is presence of echogenic foci which can be one or two.


Risk factors of testicular microlithiasis are related to the testicular cancer and these factors may include:

  1. Subfertility and infertility
  2. Ethnicity
  3. HIV or AIDS
  4. Muscle building supplements
  5. Family history i.e. Genetic disorders
  6. History of testicular maldescent or cryptorchidism
  7. At young age there can be presence of atrophic testis
  8. Testicular dysgenesis syndrome
  9. Adaptation of unhealthy lifestyle and diet
  10. Excessive intake of kapha vardhak ahara


Testicular ultrasound is the best method of diagnosing the testicular microlithiasis in which the appearance of micro calcification can be seen in one or both of the testes. The ultrasound images shows three types of results.

  1. When there is presence of less than five micro calcifications, this case is of limited testicular microlithiasis.
  2. When there is presence of five or more tiny calcifications, this is the case of Classical type of Testicular microlithiasis.
  3. When there is presence of many tiny calcifications, this is diffuse testicular microlithiasis.


There is no exact treatment for the testicular microlithiasis, patients are monitored if they don't have any symptoms and are not associated with the other conditions. Ayurveda can help with the help of natural herbs and other methods in managing the Testicular microlithiasis. These herbs are effective in clearing the microcalcifications present in the testes and also prevent the further formation of these micro calcifications.

Treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease in Ayurveda


Peripheral artery disease, commonly known as PAD, is a form of peripheral vascular disease characterized by narrowed blood vessels, rendering it unable to carry and deliver blood to the outer parts of the body on demand such as the arms and legs.

This common circulatory problem indicates a probable build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries which fosters gradually and can be identified as atherosclerosis which results in the former.


This reduced blood flow to the arms and legs can give rise to cramps with which one may find it difficult to even walk but disappears when rested for 5 minutes. This cramp may be localized on the clogged artery. Cramps may arise on either of the hips or both, calf or thigh muscles upon exertion such as walking, climbing stairs etc. Unhealable sores on the feet, legs or toes or unidentified colour change appearance. Numbness, coldness or weakness on the affected organ. Altered pulse and long-winded growth of toenails.


First of all, if these symptoms have been observed, let's not shun it as another facet of aging! Keep in mind if you've crossed the age of 65 and have a recorded history of diabetes or if you have had the habit of smoking. Another potential threat for PAD can be traced to obesity, high blood pressure or a high cholesterol, heart disease or even stroke. PAD also finds its root in hereditary factors.


Ayurveda weighs the constitution of each individual with its unique dosic constitution of which vata pitta and kapha plays its components, hence disregarding a generalised treatment procedure, this 'mother of healing' rightly regarded as such, uproots the disease as a whole in lieu of the superficial symptoms!


Ayurveda sorts PAD as 'uttana vatarakta'.vatarakta is a condition which affects both vata dosha and rakta.

Troubled By Ulcerative Colitis? In Search Of An Ayurveda Clinic?


Got diagnosed with ulcerative colitis recently? Or do you doubt the disease and wish to consult an Ayurveda clinic? Even if you are someone who got diagnosed with the disease earlier and wish to treat it, still it's never late. This could be the right opportunity to pull up your socks and approach Ayurveda for the cure.

Ulcerative colitis, Ayurveda clinic, Ayurvedic treatment


Ulcerative colitis is considered as an inflammatory disease that affects intestines by creating inflammations which produce small sores called ulcers within the lining of the intestines or gastrointestinal tract. This condition is said to begin at the rectum and gradually spread to intestinal areas. The main reason behind the pain is attributed to the ulcers formed and the fact that due to damages caused to cells lining the tract surfaces, mucous production could be reduced. Bleeding is also caused due to the same reasons of ulcer formations and absence of mucous production.

In Ayurveda, Ulcerative colitis is actually related to Pitta dosha, one among the three of the Tridosas i.e., Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Related to the same, it is called Pittaja grahani in some concepts. Here the second term Grahani itself indicates that it is something in association with intestines and it is indicated that it is caused due to Pitta as its mentioned as Pittaja grahani. This is caused due to the vitiation of Pitta in the intestinal tracts and Vata sometimes. The idea of Purisha Vaha srotas is also to be mentioned here as Purisha is the feces that faces difficulty to be passed down in cases of constipation as an effect. The Srotas here is evidently the tract which carries the feces which is the intestinal tract.


Though it could be possible to address many related causes, still the exact reason remains unsolved to be stated properly. But this stays satisfactory as these reasons are always found enough to heal the disease when once diagnosed with. Few of them include the primary causes like diet. So as to acknowledge the reasons of a disease as anything related to the diet it is always important in Ayurveda to understand terms like Doshas and Agni. Tridosha is a well-known concept of the 3 humors- Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Of these Pitta being the one related to ulcerative colitis, it is important to understand that the primary step to be taken is to prevent the vitiation of the Dosha by forming a daily diet accordingly, or else foods that imbalance the Pitta dosha results in the Ama condition. Ama is the deposition of toxins on intestinal tracts due to indigestion of food, as the vitiation of Pitta has hindered proper action of Agni.

Other than this aspect, it is also considered as a genetically inherent disease and has a chance to pass down to you through the parental genes.


The symptoms that might help you confirm your disease includes abdominal pain, sense of inappropriate bowels, loss of interest to eat followed by weight loss and low energy, rectal pain, rectal bleeding, diarrhea with blood or pus content and fever. Living with the disease is hard and so once you recognize the symptoms, it's important to seek advice from your physician to treat it.


  1. Ulcerative Proctitis - In this type, the inflammations are only established at the rectal area and bleeding is the prime symptom.
  2. Pancolitis - This is the type in which the entire colon gets affected and leads to some serious symptoms like heavy diarrhoea with bleeding, abdominal cramps and loss of weight.


Intestinal perforation, acute bleeding, osteoporosis, increased risk of colon cancer, lagged growth in children, high levels of dehydration etc.


Ayurveda, the science which deals with lifestyle is the best choice to tackle ulcerative colitis by seeking treatment from a physician. This is mainly because body friendly treatments, diets and easier post preventive methods are made possible with Ayurveda. The treatments include-

The therapies include;

  1. Parishechana - It involves the process of dropping oils like Chandanadi tailam or Shatadouth grtham below navel of the abdomen.
  2. Pichu - It is a treatment in which oils like Dhanwantara tailam and Bhala tailam are used to apply on an instrument to place it inside the anal canal. The herbs due to their cooling property gives a cooling effect to the ulcers within the canal. Basti is mainly done mainly to cure Vata. Anuvasan basti is also another type of basti that is used using Prapundrikadi thailam.
