Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis Treatment In Ayurveda

Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis (EPS)


Peritoneal dialysis is a treatment for kidney failure patients that filters your blood. It collects waste from the body’s blood by washing the peritoneal cavity (empty space in the abdomen). This exchange process is performed daily on a routine basis and the peritoneal dialysis solutions undergo heat sterilization processes which form glucose degradation products. Thus it can involve various complications. One of its complications is Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis. Yet, there are some causes of the occurrence of EPS that are not linked to peritoneal dialysis. In this article we will discuss the Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis disorder and what we can do to manage it with natural methods- ‘Ayurveda’.


Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis is a rare complication of peritoneal dialysis that is defined as intraperitoneal inflammation and fibrosis. This rare disorder is associated with long-term peritoneal dialysis that results in excessive thickening of peritoneum along with its fibrosis, resulting in the formation of a fibrous cocoon encapsulation. Yet, recovery is possible if it is diagnosed and managed on time. Studies show that the Majority of patients (50-80%) on peritoneal dialysis will experience Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis within two years of the initiation. Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis is a benign cause of small bowel obstruction, and if not treated will lead to the formation of cocoon syndrome in chronic cases. Before Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis was termed abdominal cocoon syndrome but later it was differentiated that Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis in its untreated chronic stage leads to cocoon syndrome. Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis is also known as sclerosing peritonitis, encapsulating peritonitis, and peritonitis chronic fibrosa incapsulata.

Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis (EPS)

Ayurvedic aspect

Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis is not exactly correlated with any disease in Ayurveda because peritoneal dialysis is a modern pathy method to pure blood, while Ayurveda provides various therapies and natural drugs for blood purification. The drugs and treatment described for “Udar vikar” can be implemented according to the patient’s symptoms. Also, the patient is recovered to the extent that they may not need the use of dialysis further. Ayurveda is very vast and successful in managing these disorders. Ayurvedic medicines can revive normal kidney functioning very effectively, that can even prevent the need for dialysis. Details of medicines are given further in the article.

An Ayurvedic View On Kidney Disease


Kidney disease affects the body to filter out blood and extra water out of blood which helps to maintain blood pressure. Kidneys are two red-brown color kidney-shaped organs which are found on the vertebrae which are located on the right and left retroperitoneal space; they receive the blood from the paired renal arteries and exit into the renal vein. The nephron is the structural and functional unit of the kidney. It is generally located in the upper abdominal cavity, the right kidney is slightly lower and smaller than the left side. The left kidney is approximately at the T12 to L3 and the right side is slightly lower. On the top of the kidney, there is the adrenal gland, the adrenal gland is surrounded by two layers of perirenal fat which is usually present between the renal fascia and renal capsule. It is convex shaped with a concave border, on the concave side there is a hilum from where the renal artery and vein enter the kidney and ureter left. The superior pole of the kidney is adjacent to the liver and the left side is the spleen. In this article, we are going to discuss the causes and symptoms of kidney diseases with their Ayurvedic management in detail.

Kidney Disease


Kidney disease or renal disease is known as nephropathy which causes damage to the kidney. Nephrosis is a non-inflammatory kidney disease that causes kidney function to loss which further leads to kidney failure. It helps to maintain a healthy body which is responsible for filtering out waste products, excess water and other impurities from the body. As the toxins are stored in the bladder which is removed by urination. It helps to activate the vitamin which helps further to absorb the calcium. Kidney disease attacks the nephrons, which leave the kidney and cannot remove the waste material from the body. Kidneys help to regulate the pH, which regulates blood pressure and controls the red blood cells (as it has a chemical which is known as erythropoietin which helps to make the red blood cells). Kidney disease leads to many other health problems such as  Weak bones, nerve damage and sometimes malnutrition. Another problem related to kidneys involves- Cancer, cysts and infection of the kidney. It is known as Chronic Kidney disease which damages and loses its ability to keep the filter of the blood.

Ayurvedic Management

In ayurveda, it is correlated with Vrikk Rogas. Kidney diseases are under the heading of Mutra Vaha Srotas. The kidney is one of the three sadyo pranahara marma which is agneya in nature. The food ingested is further divided into Sara Bhaga (nutrients) and Kitta Bhaga (non-essential nutrients). Sara Bhaga forms the rasa dhatus which meets the nutrients and kitta Bhaga is eliminated from the body in the form of urine, stools and sweat. When these tridoshas are imbalance in the body it gives rise to kidney disease when Pitta is involved causes impaired jatharagni, Kapha is responsible for the blockages of srotas and Vata doshas are responsible for the degeneration of the structure of the kidney and impairment of kidney functions. When the Ama doshas are accumulated in the body, they cause disease.

In Medical Astrology

Astrology plays a critical role in not just knowing the primary reason behind it but helping to treat serious kidney ailments. Ayurveda and astrology have had an integral relationship since their origin. Astrology originated in the Rig Veda. If the Sun, Mars and Venus and 7th get troubled it gives rise to kidney disease such as in the form of kidney stones. The kidney is ruled by the 7th house, when Saturn is ruling the libra it causes the hardening of the kidney which causes poor filtration of blood, an increase in the level of creatinine and the functions of the kidney become sluggish.

Mantra Therapy

There are 9 mantras which are from Atharva Veda and namely- Parjanya, Mitra, Varuna, Chandra and Sun. This is known as Mootra Mochana Suktam. It is believed that while chanting this mantra one can overcome dialysis and other kidney diseases and provide relaxation of the mind. Patients chant this mantra as many times as they can while having the medicine which is prescribed by the doctor. This mantra has to chant twice daily once with two voices in a lower pitch and once more with three voices in a higher pitch.
