CHRONIC GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE AND AYURVEDA

According to the Ayurveda, anyone who has developed an imbalance in “doshas,” and has thereby weakened their immune system, may be subject to a microbial infection which is considered a symptom of that imbalance.

NIDANA- AYURVEDIC CAUSES OF CHRONIC GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE 

  • Imbalance  of doshas
  • Vitiation of dhatus
  • Reduced immunity (vyadhi kshamatwam)

PURVAROOPAM- AYURVEDIC PREMONITORY SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE 

  • Jwara – fever

SAMPRAPTI – AYURVEDIC PATHOGENESIS OF CHRONIC GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE 

A healthy individual has a strong immune system and, therefore, it will be difficult for microbial infection to take hold. Balance in dosha, dhatu and agni provides a strong and well-functioning immune system capable of defending against microbial infection. Bacteria invade the body when there is a defect in the immune system.

LAKSHANA- AYURVEDIC SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE 

  • Jwara – fever
  • Agnimandya – indigestion
  • Sada – weakness
  • Atisara – diarrhoea

Again, he will have to breathe in deeply through the other nostril while the opposite nostril is still closed with the thumb.
