Treatment for Eruptive Syringoma in Ayurveda

All over the human body sweat glands are present, most numerous on armpits, forehead, soles of feet and palms. The sweat mostly consists of water and some amount of salts. The main function is to maintain the body temperature. Sweat glands are generally of two types and occur only in mammals. One is eccrine sweat glands, controlled by a sympathetic nervous system helpful in regulating body temperature. When internal temperature of our body gets raised, this eccrine glands secrete water then heat is removed by evaporation and another one is apocrine sweat glands mostly associated with our hair follicles secrete a fatty sweat into the gland tubule continuously. Eruptive syringoma is a rare type of syringoma that means benign adnexal tumour of eccrine sweat glands. Let's discuss it in detail!

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 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.
