Severe Combined Immunodeficiency?- Causes Symptoms & Treatment in Ayurveda


Severe combined immunodeficiency is a rare genetic illness that occurs due to genetic abnormalities that disrupt the functional development of B cells and T cells and modify the clinical presentation. Other names for it include Swiss-type agammaglobulinemia, bubble boy disease, and bubble baby disease. There are roughly 13 different genetic disorders that can cause severe combined immunodeficiency. These flaws also make people highly susceptible to life-threatening diseases. Infants with 80% severe combined immunodeficiency do not have a family history of the condition. In this article, we will read briefly about severe combined immunodeficiency.


Severe combined immunodeficiency is an uncommon disorder caused by genetic abnormalities that affect immune cell function and development. Infants with severe combined immunodeficiency appear healthy but are incredibly vulnerable to life-threatening infections. Until or unless newborns undergo immune restoration therapy, such as gene therapy, enzyme therapy, and hematopoietic stem cells.

In Ayurveda, we can correlate severe combined immunodeficiency with anuvanshik vyadhi (inherited disease) and oja kshaya (immune deficiency). Anuvanshik vyadhi in a person develops at birth as a result of beej dosha (sperm and ovum malformation). Oja refers to immunity or resistance to diseases of two types: one that lessens the manifestation of the disease, and the other variety that prevents the manifestation of diseases. Normal doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha), equilibrium state of dhatu, normal agni, patency of srotas, and other factors that support the equilibrium condition of all physiological parameters are the factors that lead to oja (immunity). Oja is the core of rasadhi dhatus, which is also known as bala (strength).


     अभिघातात् क्षयात् कोपाच्छोकाद्धयानाच्छ्रमात् क्षुधः।

     ओजः सड्.क्षीयते ह्योभ्यो धातुग्रहणनिः सृतम्।

      तेजः समीरितं तस्माद्विस्त्रंसयति देहिनः।। (सु.सू  १५ /२८)

According to Acharya Sushruta, Ojas decreases as a result of any injury or harm.

  1. Body discomfort
  2. Tissue exhaustion
  3. Rage
  4. Grief
  5. Stress
  6. Exertion
  7. Hunger, etc., causes fluid to flow out of the dhatus and become associated with tejas under the control of vata.


      मूर्च्छा मांसक्षयो मोह: प्रलापोऽज्ञानमेव च ।

      पूर्वोक्तानि च लिङ्गानि मरणं च बलक्षये ।। (सु.सू  १५ /३२)

  1. Fainting
  2. Wasting of muscles
  3. Unconsciousness
  4. Delirium
  5. Death
  6. Improper perception of knowledge


Oja kshaya and anuvanshik vyadhi are incurable because of improper understanding. We can only provide supportive care using herbal medications to stop the disease from getting worse and provide some immunity to fight against other infections.

Tonsillitis- Treatment With Herbal Remedies



The word tonsillitis is made of two words “tonsil” and “itis”, which means “inflammation of tonsils”. Tonsils are an oval shaped pad of tissue at the back of the throat, there is a pair of tonsils present in our throat (one tonsil on each side). Due to various infections, tonsils get infected, they begin to swell and make your throat sore, which leads to difficulty in swallowing. Early and accurate diagnosis of this condition makes it easily manageable. Sometimes it can be treatable at home by simply gargling with warm salty water. It usually spreads through droplet infection like sneezing, coughing, etc. Mostly, children are affected from tonsillitis as of preschool ages and mid teen ages. It is rare in infants and persons who are above 50 years of age. Firstly tonsillitis arises with high-grade fever and throat pain, with time the condition gets worse if not treated. Usually there are cases of viral tonsillitis that can be cured by fluids, plenty of rest, and antibiotics if there is a bacterial cause, it does not cause any serious health condition. In this article we will know about each concept regarding tonsillitis and its significance, and management according to Ayurveda classical texts.



Primarily, when there is inflammation of surface epithelium and lymphoid tissues of palatine tonsils leads to the condition known as tonsillitis. There are mainly three types of tonsillitis- acute, recurrent and chronic. Acute tonsillitis complicates chronic tonsillitis. Tonsils act as filters for trapping germs which enter into airways and cause infections, they make antibodies to fight against infections. Tonsillitis is very common and when infected once can occur again and again. The function of tonsils is to provide local immunity and act as a defense mechanism. They act as guard against viruses, bacteria and other antigens coming into contact through inhalation and ingestion. When the tonsils get swollen sometimes adenoids also get inflamed which increases tonsillitis condition. Usually tonsillitis is not contagious but it can be if viral or bacterial involvement and can be prevented by repeatedly washing hands. The treatment depends on the underlying cause and care of the patient.
