Treatment of Rumination Syndrome with Herbal Remedies

Abstract

Rumination syndrome is a digestive disorder. Digestive system is a very complex system. The human body uses the process of digestion to break down the food into energy. This digestive system extends from the mouth to the anus. The main functions of the digestive system is receiving food, breaking it down into nutrients and absorbing these nutrients into the bloodstream and at last eliminating the indigestive parts of food from the body. But sometimes our bad habit of eating makes our digestive system weak and causes many digestive ailments such as indigestion, GERD, IBD, rumination syndrome etc. So in this article we are going to discuss one of the digestive problems called Rumination syndrome and its ayurvedic aspect in detail.

Introduction

Rumination syndrome is a condition in which people find it difficult to store their food into the stomach. This syndrome is characterized by effortless regurgitation of the meals after consumption. This is due to involuntary contraction of the abdominal muscles. Rumination happens soon after every meal. Regurgitation occurs when recently ingested food rises or comes up into the oesophagus, throat and mouth, but involuntarily expelled out from the mouth as it is vomiting. There is no nausea, retching, heartburn or abdominal pain associated with the regurgitation. This is because regurgitated food remains undigested.

Treatment of Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection syndrome

Abstract

Strongyloides stercoralis is a very small nematode which parasites the mucosa of the upper part of the small intestine, often in large numbers.the eggs hatch in the bowel but only larvae are passed in the feces. In moist soil they moult and become the infective filariform larvae. After penetrating human skin they undergo a development cycle similar to that of hookworms but the female worms burrow into the mucosa and submucosa. Some larvae in the intestine may develop into filariform larvae which may then penetrate the mucosa or perianal skin and lead to auto infection and a very persistent infection. In this article we will mainly discuss the hyperinfection due to  Strongyloides stercoralis and what symptoms it creates along with its Ayurvedic management.

Introduction

Strongyloides is the parasite that has more prevalence in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Hyperinfection syndrome due to these parasites is ensured in patients that are having imapired cell mediated immunity. Imapaired cell mediated immunity is common in patients who are being administered with steroidal treatment and with drugs which are responsible for immune system suppression. Hyperinfection syndrome only happens when there is acceleration of the normal life cycle of S. stercoralis increasing the worm burden within the reproductive route.Then wide spread of the larvae of this parasite takes place out of the gut area involving organs like heart, liver, brain and urinary tract.

Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection syndrome

Clinical manifestation of Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection syndrome

The symptoms are similar to classic strongyloidiasis which includes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss, GI hemorrhage, cough, fever and difficulty in breathing. But in case of hyperinfection with accelerated life cycle of parasite catastrophic clinical manifestations like shock, intravascular coagulation, meningitis, respiratory and renal failure.

Moreover, major anatomical changes take place in the duodenum and jejunum. The parasites can be identified in the crypts of lieberkuhn and in mucosa and deposited eggs are sometimes present in the depths of these burrows. The inflammatory action is quite variable and only in the more severe instances is there a mixed leukocytic infiltration, characteristically containing many eosinophils. Much of this infiltration may be attributable to secondary infection.

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of this condition is usually done after examining the stool. Sterile slides are made for filariform larvae. Due to accelerated activity usually parasites are being diagnosed in the stool test. Moreover, a complete blood count is done to take a complete idea of infection and its severity. Urine tests can also be advised.

Treatment

The first line of treatment for strongyloides include ivermectin which eradicated around 80% of parasites. Other agents include thiabendazole and albendazole. In case of shock patients need in door admission along with fluid replacement therapy. Administration of antibiotics through intravenous routes can also be done. If patients have low hemoglobin levels immediate administration of blood units is required.
