How To Handle High CPK Levels With Ayurveda?

Creatine Phosphokinase Test

Abstract

CPK or creatine phosphokinase test determines muscle disease in specific. CPK is usually elevated in the conditions where the muscles of heart or brain are damaged resulting in various health hazards. When a particular group of muscles are damaged and leaking, it increases the level of CPK in blood. This article describes the significance of CPK, i.e. disease conditions in which it is increased and Ayurvedic management of this condition with the help of various herbo-mineral remedies.

CPK TEST

Introduction

Creatine phosphokinase is an enzyme that is majorly found in the heart, brain and skeletal muscles. When any of these parts are damaged, there occurs leaking of CPK resulting in high CPK levels. Destruction of the muscles of the heart or brain causes high CPK. Creatine phosphokinase is of three types which is measured and evaluated, i.e. CPK located in the brain (CK-BB), located in the heart (CK-MB) and located in the skeletal muscles (CK-MM). Hence, with the presence of these specific CPK, one can determine the exact damaged part or tissue from three of them. More specific tests can be done accordingly and treatment for the condition is given. For example, in case of a heart attack, the CKP specifically the CK-MB gets elevated within a few hours of the attack. This raised level does not go down immediately and can be detected after 18-24 hours of the incidence as well. After the mentioned time, the level slowly starts to get down and attain the normal level. Hence, after finding the elevated level of CK-MB, troponin, more specific tests to confirm the diagnosis can be done.

Similarly, the other two levels CK-BB and CK-MM can be done in case of any trauma causing damage to skeletal muscles, other forms of muscle damage, stroke or other conditions damaging brain muscles or skeletal muscles.

Signs and Symptoms

Elevated levels of CPK can cause various signs and symptoms as per the underlying condition and it is usually raised in emergency conditions like stroke and heart attack, thus, must not be overlooked.

Symptoms involving cardiac system along with the increased level of creatine phosphokinase:

  • Pain in chest
  • Feeling of pressure on chest
  • Breathing is heavy and difficult
  • Radiating pain in the arm or sometimes jaw
  • Feeling of dizziness
  • Profuse perspiration
  • Heart rate is increased which is also known as tachycardia

Symptoms linked to other systems in the body along with the elevated CPK:

  • Changes in vision or may be complete vision loss (temporary)
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Speech is slurred
  • Pain and stiffness in muscles
  • Numbness or weakness especially on one side of body
  • General weakness

Causes

As we have already learned that damage to skeletal muscles, muscles of heart or brain results in high CPK. Now, let us see the specific disease condition which can cause it and the marker can help in their diagnosis:

  • Myocarditis
  • Myocardial infarction
  • Stroke
  • Polymyositis
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Rhabdomyolysis
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Alcohol withdrawal resulting in delirium tremens
  • Injury to the brain tissue
  • Trauma

Treatment

First of all, it is necessary to know the exact cause of the raised CPK level (found out in the CPK test) and then the treatment should be started. If it is a case of any of the mentioned emergency conditions, then the patient should be stabilized first after that the treatment for the underlying cause is to be given.

Ayurveda can play a vital role in this condition as there are several herbs that work wonderfully on the heart, skeletal and brain muscles and helps in recovery from the damages caused as well as prevent the damage itself. Ayurveda has been used to treat various ailments since ages through natural modes of treatment and also have taught us all to live more naturally to maintain a general health.

Alternative Treatment of Post Betrayal Syndrome

Abstract

Post betrayal syndrome is a condition or a phase faced by a person after being ditched. The one who suffers with the treachery only knows how much it hurts. Their thoughts and their mind are never stable and also they are not the same person anymore. After betrayal in relationship, business, friendship, marriage etc. people usually have a lot of trust issues. Even very small and ignorant situations for people can lead the sufferer back to the moment of betrayal. The disloyalty they faced might bring many behavioral changes.

These behavioral changes can be positive and can be negative. Betrayal is an emotional state that has the potential to change a person forever. The change will be noticed in behavior, emotions and also in physical appearance. There is one thing that is fixed in their thoughts that no one can understand the pain they are going through. Some take betrayals like a lesson and continue their life achieving everything they want. But in some cases betrayal makes a very creative, loving, smart person look like a complete fool.So, in today’s article, we will discuss in detail about post betrayal syndrome

Introduction

Treachery is something that causes mental pain and a person makes his or her body suffer physically. At this stage a human makes him or herself prone to many diseases and disorders. People usually suffer with stress, anxiety, depression, advance stages of mental disorders and then their body suffers from weight gain, weight loss, malnutrition, deficiencies etc. In some patients they develop very small changes in their behavior that are even not counted as disorders but still are of huge concern like wanting attention, living alone, being too much social or being a total introvert. All above means one thing that whenever a treachery hits a person, the reaction is not the same in every case. People have a tendency to take the same things positively and negatively. Reaction depends on how strong that person mentally is.

Post Betrayal Syndrome

What Kind of Betrayal People Face?

The betrayal can be in terms of business, relationships, marriage, siblings, parental etc. When a person receives a betrayal in business, they initially do not know what to do about it. Business minded people have a strong mindset generally. They are calculative and even after the betrayal tends to focus on reducing the loss percentage. But if the loss is in very big amounts then usually they are one who commits suicide very easily. Even after being very calculative, every person has a breakpoint. When we talk about betrayal in marriage or relationships then in this case people are very prone to either commit suicide or drink poison or turns into a very different personality. This personality change can be positive or can be negative.

Have you ever noticed someone being totally detached from each and every thing around them? This kind of emotional state usually depicts people with childhood trauma. You know every child is not having a very playful and loving childhood. Some children had suffered a lot due to parental issues like non attentive mothers or fathers etc. Betrayal from siblings is also very common these days (for money, land, parental property etc.)

The effect can be seen in both mental and physical ways. Some people try to hide their emotions and are the worst victims in betrayal, some people show their emotions completely but still suffer both mentally and physically.

Visible Signs

These Signs will Include Visible and Noticeable Changes Such as

  1. Lack of communication with others.
  2. Lack of appetite (refusing food all the time)
  3. Development of smoking and drinking habits
  4. Sleeplessness leading to pale face, grooved eyes, dull flushed face.
  5. Excessive crying causing eyelids to swell
  6. Loss of weight suddenly
  7. Repeated complaint of palpitations
  8. Refusing to go out or coming back late at night.
  9. Always appear exhausted
  10. Total lack of interest in everything.

Some people might show these above mentioned negative signs at first but can show a remarkable positive change in their personality and focus on achieving their goals and also believe in giving life a second chance On the other hand some people only worsen their condition with time.

Mental Signs

  1. Irritation (reacts on very small things)
  2. Always have negative thoughts
  3. Never happy rather seems angry and jealous all the time.
  4. Unexplained panic attacks or anxiety

How Does it Affect our Immune System?

Our body is believed to be healthy when it is having a balance between its spiritual and mental aspect. If any unbalance is seen in the ratio of spirituality and mental state along with physical suffering then our body is not termed as healthy. Our immunity also depends on this ratio if any imbalance is noticed then our immunity will get hampered thus making our body and mind prone to diseases. As mentioned in ayurveda, mansik vichar also leads our body towards many disorders. Post betrayal syndrome can be treated using satva vijya, yuktivyapasraya and daiva vyapashraya chikitsa. This balances the human in both physical and mental aspects.
