Natural Treatment of Syringoma (benign adnexal tumor)


To the casual observer, the skin is a passive, somewhat dull body’s covering. Celebrated for its flexible, soft, elastic qualities, this covering is surprisingly resistant to corrosive liquids, blunt trauma, effects of harmful light and other radiations. The basic framework of the skin includes epidermis, basement membrane zone overlying dermis and subcutaneous fat. Moreover, the appendageal structures include pilosebaceous units, apocrine and eccrine glands situated in the dermis but are in the connection with epidermis as they are arised from it during embryonic life. The adnexal tumors are the group of tumors like lesions or tumors arising from these pilosebaceous structures, eccrine and apocrine ducts and glands. One of such benign adnexal tumors is Syringioma. This article is focused on this disease and its best Ayurvedic management.


Syringoma is a benign adnexal tumor derived from intraepidermal eccrine (acrosyringium). Recently, the transitional portion between the dermal duct and acrosyringium or lower acrosyringium origin have been also believed  as origins. Syringoma is more prevalent in young women approaching or after puberty. The most frequent type is although the localized variant of syringoma in eyelids of middle-aged women.

Syringoma is more prevalent in young women approaching or after puberty. The most frequent type is although the localized variant of syringoma in eyelids of middle-aged women.

Sign and Symptoms of Syringoma


Syringioma can be hereditary transmissible. The postzygotic somatic mutations or mutations within the zygote are considered responsible for the familial or unilateral syrigioma that may or may not affect gonadal mosaicism in the affected patients. Other causes of Syringomas are overactive sudoriferous glands, obstruction in the channels/ducts of eccrine glands. Further, the risk factors include history of diseases like  Marfan syndrome, Down syndrome etc. People with oily skin and patients of Diabetes mellitus are prone for developing Syringoma.

Ayurvedic Aspect

Syringioma in Ayurveda can be understood as a kushtarog (skin disorder) arised due to the svedvaha srotas dushti (vitiation of microchannels/ ducts associated with sweat).

Charka Samhita Vimana

(Reference- Charka Samhita Vimana sthana 5/7)

The basic seats of Sved Vaha srotas are meda(subcutaneous fat) and lomkoop (pilosebaceous glands/ducts) according to Acharya Charka. This vitiation of sved vaha srotas due to underlying cause will lead to the deformities in meda and lomkoop, and will lead to the formation of these papules under the influence of vitiated tridosha predominantly pitta dosha.

Skin tumors are the most common tumors encountered in day-to-day life. Syringoma is a benign and relatively harmless tumor of the skin that may be attributed to the more frequent medical care seeking due to cosmetic reasons in women. In Allopathic medicine, they focus on steroidal therapy or local application of corticosteroids which on long term use have severe hazardous effects on skin as well as on the whole body. Further, if this treatment plan doesn’t succeed they suggest for surgical excision of these papules. But that too have many post-surgical complications and the chances of recurrence is quite high. So, the best method of treatment of these Syringoma is with Ayurvedic herbal medicines, along with some modifications in diet and lifestyle.

How to Control Your Diabetes with Ayurvedic Treatment


Diabetes mellitus has been taken from the Greek word Diabetes which means siphon (to pass through) and Latin word mellitus means sweet.It is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism resulting from insulin deficiency or abnormality in the use of insulin.

Diabetes in Young Age

What Are The Leading Causes Of Diabetes?

Major Causes of Diabetes Mellitus Can Be Categorized Into 3 Categories

1. Agent

The fundamental cause of diabetes mellitus is deficiency of insulin which affects partially in Type I Diabetes and completely in Type II diabetes. This may be due to the following reasons

2. Pancreatic Disorders

  • Destruction of Beta cells by viral infections and chemical agents

3. Genetic mutations in genes

  • Autoimmunity

4. Host factors

  • Age and sex- Though diabetes mellitus can hit at any age but youth get affected by malnutrition-related diabetes.

5 Genetic factors

  • Studies show that in case of Type II diabetes there is 90% chances that it will pass on to the next generation while in case of Type I diabetes cannot be considered as a total genetic entity.

6. Obesity

  • Intensity of risk depends on the degree of duration of obesity because obese people requires very large amount of insulin to maintain adequate blood glucose levels. Increasing BMI (Body Mass Index), waist to hip ratio (reflecting, abdominal or visceral adiposity) are major determinants of Type II Diabetes. Obesity tends to reduce the no. of insulin receptors on target cells. It doesn’t play an important role in Type I diabetes.

7. Environmental factors

  • Sedentary lifestyle – Lack of workout and exercise induces the symptoms of diabetes mellitus.

8. Diet

  • Consuming a high saturated fat diet triggers insulin level and glucose tolerance in the body. Increased intake of dietary fiber on a daily basis helps in reduced blood glucose levels.

9. Malnutrition

  • This results in reduced Beta-cell functioning in infants and children.

10. Alcohol

  • This increases the risk of diabetes mellitus by damaging the pancreas, liver and symptoms of obesity.

11. Viral infections (rubella, mumps etc.)

  • Triggers Immune-responses which causes destruction of beta-cells.

Chemical agents (alloxan, cyanide etc.), stress (trauma, surgery etc.) are one of the factors inducing diabetes mellitus.

Symptoms of Diabetes

Other Factors

Type I Diabetes is a chronic condition which occurs when the body’s system against infection (immune system) initiates destroying the insulin producing beta cells of pancreas.

  • Genetics play a crucial role in diabetes
  • Increasing age
  • Obesity, physical inactivity are significant causes of diabetes as being obese resist insulin production
  • Stress affects normal functioning of pancreas
  • Unhealthy dietary habits like consumption of high carbohydrate and sugar level in body
  • Previous medication
  • Viral infections like rubella, mumps and coxsackie

Types of Diabetes

  • Type I-Formerly is known as Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM)
  • Autoimmune disorder
  • Destruction of beta cells of the pancreas which leads to reduced or no insulin production.
  • May occur at any age but usually affects the age group below 15.

Type II Diabetes

  • Type II-Formerly is known as Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM)
  • Probably caused by disturbances in insulin reception in the cells.
  • Reduced number of insulin receptors
  • Loss of beta cells responsiveness to glucose leading to slow or decreased amount of insulin released from pancreas.
  • Mostly occurs over age of 40 but can also occur in children.
  • Common in overweight and obese people.

Gestational Diabetes

  • This type affects females during pregnancy
  • Undiagnosed or uncontrolled gestational diabetes can raise the complications during healthcare
  • Pre-diabetes
  • Impaired fasting glucose (IFG)
  • FPG – 100-124mg/dL
  • Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT)
  • OGTT- 140-100mg/dL
  • Blood sugar levels
  • BSL- Random= 100-140 mg/dL
  • BSL-fasting = 70-110 mg/dL
  • BSL-after meal=less than 200md/dL
  • HBA1C- normal non diabetic HbA1c;

Who is at Risk?

Type I diabetes Risk factors

  • Family history

  • Improper eating habits

  • Damaged immune system

Type II diabetes risk factors-

  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome

  • High blood pressure

  • No physical work

  • A sudden increase in weight

Some of the Health Conditions Which Might Have Risk Factors Are

  • Obesity

  • Physical inactivity

  • Family history

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

  • History of CVD

  • Gestational diabetes

Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes

  • Polyuria (increased urination)

  • Polydipsia (increased thirst)

  • Polyphagia (increased hunger)

  • Sudden and unexplained weight loss

  • Nausea/vomiting

  • Severe hyperglycemia

  • Recurrent infection

  • Prolonged wound healing

  • Altered inflammatory and immune response

  • Genital pruritus

  • Blurry vision

  • Itchy and dry skin

  • Yeast infections

  • Feeling of numbness in feet and hands

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)

  • Deprived muscle strength in men

  • Increased appetite

Diagnosis of Diabetes

  1. Glycated hemoglobin (A1C) test
  2. Random blood sugar test
  3. Fasting blood sugar test
  4. Oral glucose tolerance test
  5. HbA1c value

Pathogenesis of Diabetes

Our metabolism converts food into energy which is done with the help of insulin.

About insulin

Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas, whenever we eat something sugar levels in our blood rise and simultaneously insulin is released in the bloodstream.

Role of insulin

  • Balances glucose levels in body

  • Inhibit the breakdown of glycogen

  • Stimulate the transfer of glucose into fat and muscle cells

  • Stimulate the storage of glucose in form of glycogen

It is believed that there is a direct link between nerve impulses and pancreas so when autoimmune destruction of pancreatic beta cells leads to a deficiency of insulin secretion results in the metabolic derangement associated with Type I diabetic patients. This results in loss of insulin secretion, abnormal functioning of pancreatic alpha cells and excessive secretion of glucagon. The resultant elevated glucagon levels disturbs the metabolic defects and suppressed glucose metabolism.

Whereas in case of Type II diabetic patients there are two main pathological defects i.e. impaired insulin secretion by dysfunction of pancreatic beta cells and insulin action through insulin resistance.


  1. Acute and Subacute complications of diabetes mellitus
  2. Metabolic- Ketoacidosis, Coma, hyper osmolar nonketotic-coma and lactic acidosis
  3. Infections- UTI, lungs, bacterial and fungal infections
  4. Hypoglycaemia

Chronic Complications of Diabetes Mellitus

  1. Diabetic neuropathy- renal disease mainly affecting renal system i.e. visceral-cardiovascular, somatic-poly and mononeuropathy
  2. Diabetic retinopathy- mainly affecting visual system
  3. Diabetic foot/ulcer
  4. Coronary artery disease/ cardiac diseases

What Are The Dosha Involved In Triggering The Symptoms Of Diabetes?

Diabetes which is also known as “Prameha ” is believed to have 20 types depending upon the type of dosha i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha dosha (Tridosha). According to Ayurveda there are three main divisions of diabetes are-

  • Kaphaja- Kaphaja imbalance causes nausea, vomiting, indigestion and lack of hunger.
  • Pittaja- This causes insomnia, restlessness, urinary tract infections in women and diarrhea.
  • Vataja – This causes sleeping and digestive disorders.

According to Ayurveda, diabetes is caused due to Nidana sevana which aggravates Kapha and vitiates Meda Dhatu. Kapha and Meda are Jala tattva, kidneys and greater omentum are considered as seat (moolsthana) of Meda dhatu. This in turn causes excessive urination and thirst.
