Brain Tumor And Its Ayurvedic Management With Remedies


A group or a mass of cells that start functioning abnormally and multiply at a very high rate. This will lead to accumulation of a group of cells known as tumors. There are various types of tumors depending on shape, size and the location of the tumor. The different types of tumors that target or arise in the brain are known as brain tumors. The tumors arising in the brain are termed as primary tumors (benign) whereas the abnormal mass of cells that spread to the brain from various other sites are called secondary tumors (malignant).

Brain Tumor


Brain tumors are the tenth leading cause of death worldwide. Approximately 18,600 deaths are reported due to primary brain tumors every year. Brain tumors are also known as central nervous system tumors.Tumors can be classified into two types: Benign Tumors – These types of tumors are present in an area and do not usually spread to other parts of the body. Malignant Tumors- These type of tumors have the capacity to spread to the other parts of the body. These are also known as cancerous growth.


The exact cause of these tumors are not known yet. But various factors are estimated to make the patient prone to the condition:

Genetic Causes

It is believed that the tumors are caused due to mutations (changes) in the genes. Family history of cancer will make the individual more prone to it.

Environmental Causes

The known cause of tumors or cancer is believed to be X-ray exposure. Ionizing radiation is one major cause that makes the person more prone to tumors.


The clinical presentation of Brain tumor will depend on the type and location of the tumor. General features are as follows:

  • Headaches – It can be of various types and degrees. These headaches gradually become more severe and frequent in nature.
  • Vomiting and nausea.

There are various therapies given for the tumor depending upon the location and type of tumor. Such as Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Laser therapy etc.


The tumors can be correlated to “Arbuda” according to the Ayurvedic principles. The arbuda is described as a condition that arises due to the imbalance because of a hindrance among the three fundamental elements i.e. vata, pitta, kapha. It is caused by imbalance of vata, pitta, kapha which further disturbs the balance of mansa dhatu and rakta dhatu. This will lead to formation of masapinda (tumor). This can occur in any part of the body . This will be slightly painful, and its size increases gradually – growth rate is slow. It is stated that the arbuda (tumor) is majorly caused due to the imbalance of levels of kapha dosha, and medo dhatu. Hence, the treatment regimen would include restoring the balance and equilibrium between the various elements of the body.
