Ayurvedic View Of Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia & Its Treatment


Leukocytes are also known as white blood cells that are responsible for protecting our body from infections. These cells are one of the parts of the immune system that circulate into the blood that counters any illness or injury. While moving in the bloodstream they detect the site of infection and notify all the WBCs to attack that foreign body and kill it to protect the body from serious infections. The white blood cells produce antibodies which act as an army that fights with the invader and destroys it. So if white blood cells are not healthy then our body is unable to fight against various illnesses and infections. One such disease which affects the health of WBC’s is Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia. About this condition we are going to discuss in the following article along with its ayurvedic management.

Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia


Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia is one of the rare and slow spreading types of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. This is a type of cancer which starts in WBCs that are known as lymphocytes. This disease is also known as primary macroglobulinemia and lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma. To understand this condition more clearly it is necessary to know how the immune system performs its duty. B lymphocytes are the cells which mainly protect the body against infections by changing into plasma cells that produce immunoglobulins or antibodies which attack the invading disease. This disease is particularly characterized by too many abnormal WBCs that are known as WM or lymphoplasmacytic. These cells produce an excess amount of IgM or immunoglobulin M. It leads to thickness of blood known as hyperviscosity (difficulty of organs performing function properly). The cells cause reduction of white blood cells which makes the body more prone to infections. It also leads to reduction of platelets which further cause bruising or bleeding.


The cause of this condition is unknown although it is believed that it might be a gene mutation which develop’s all over a person’s life. As there is no such cause of this disease but following are some risk factors which may lead to this condition:

  • Age: With increasing risk of this condition increases.
  • Sex: Male are more prone to developing this condition.
  • Race: This disease has a greater impact on white people.
  • Hepatitis C: This condition is more prone
  • Hereditary: Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia more likely occurs in people with positive hereditary.
  • Some autoimmune conditions: People with autoimmune conditions more likely develop this condition.


The symptoms of this condition vary as its severity varies. Some of the cases have no symptoms and the condition is only found after a routine blood test. Some of the common symptoms of this condition are as follows:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Sweats
  • Neuropathy

Rarely found symptoms in Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia:

  • Problem in blood circulation
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Swollen abdomen
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Kidney problems
  • Heart problems
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Digestive issues
  • Infections
  • Vision problems


To do the diagnosis of this condition the doctor first performs the physical examination along with asking for health history. The doctor examines swelling in lymph nodes, spleen or liver during the examination. If the doctor feels this condition is mimicking waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia then he may forward the patient for some more tests which includes the following:

  • Bone marrow biopsy
  • Blood tests for checking IgM levels
  • CT Scan of bones
  • X-Ray of bones


As per Ayurveda this condition has no direct relation but the pathology can be correlated in a detailed way. As we read earlier there is abnormality of WBC’s and this is to be known that WBC’s are formed in bone marrow. As per Ayurveda bone marrow is correlated to majja dhatu. Vitiation of majja dhatu leads to vitiation of rakta dhatu and further leads to IgM production and reduction of WBC’s. This can cause depletion of vyadhikshamtama and make the body more susceptible to various infections and illnesses. So to manage this condition as per Ayurveda there is a need to alleviate vitiation of majja and rakta dhatu and boosting the immunity as well. For this purpose Planet Ayurveda provides various herbal remedies that we will discuss below. So let’s have a look!!!
