Natural Treatment for ALD (Adrenoleukodystrophy)


What is Adrenoleukodystrophy disorder? How is it caused and what are the symptoms of this disorder?  It is mainly caused by a mutation in the ABCD1 gene that encodes a protein of the paroxysmal membrane known as ALDP. In this article, we will be going to discuss Adrenoleukodystrophy disorder in detail. We will also be discussing the cause, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of the disease. What is the line of treatment, we will be discussing as well. We will also discuss the Ayurvedic correlation of Adrenoleukodystrophy disorder as well as Ayurvedic treatment for this disorder. So, please be with me till the end.



Adrenoleukodystrophy disorder is a genetic disorder, following the X-linked inheritance. It is known as paroxysmal disorder because of abnormal metabolism of fatty acid known as very-long-chain fatty acid. The fatality rate is too high because of the severity of the disease and the prognosis is poor. When the mutation starts then Very long-chain fatty acids levels are elevated and it reduces fatty acids oxidation. Vision loss, learning disabilities, difficulty while swallowing, seizures, headache, progressive hearing loss, lack of coordination and balance, vomiting, weight loss etc are some of the symptoms of Adrenoleukodystrophy disease. Mutation of ABCD1 gene, build up of fatty acid in adrenal gland etc are some of the cause of Adrenoleukodystrophy disorder. Only symptomatic treatment is there and no proper treatment that means permanent cure is there.


Adrenoleukodystrophy disorder is a disorder in which there is mutation which starts, and then Very long-chain fatty acids levels are elevated. According to Ayurveda there is no proper correlation of Adrenoleukodystrophy in Ayurveda, but it can be correlated with Three Dosha in our body (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha).  Ayurveda pursues the patient’s therapeutics and also helps in refining the health of the patient with ancient methods and abet in upgrading the quality of life of the patients.
