Ayurvedic aspect and management of Hyperaldosteronism

Ayurveda is a traditional system of Indian medicine that has been serving mankind and lighting the way of people how to lead their day to day life. Ayurveda is full of life that teaches people the good doings that benefit the people physically, mentaly and spiritually.

Ayurveda is based on the three humours that are vata, pitta and kapha. Balance of these results in health whereas imbalance/vitiation of these is the cause of diseases.
Further Pitta dosha is responsible for metabolism and various secretions and kapha dosha causes the abnormal growths when vitiated and otherwise provides stability to the body. Lastly, vata dosha is responsible for all the body movements.

In Ayurveda, the correlation of the condition of hyperaldosteronism can be well established with the tridosha vitiation as the kapha vitiation causes the hyperplasia of the adrenal glands, pitta vitiation leads to the increased secretions of the aldosterone and vata vitiation results in increased blood pressure (rakta gata vata). All the dosha interconnects with each other, thus all the causes and symptoms give a clear indication of tridosha imbalance. Hence, establishing health can be achieved by correcting the imbalance of three doshas.

Herbs such as Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna), Pipaltvak (Ficus religiosa), Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia), Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa), Dalchini (Cinnamomum tamala), Manjishtha (Rubia cordifolia), Kachnar Bark (Bauhinia variegata), Varuna (Crataeva religiosa), Neem (Azadirachta indica), Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki/Baheda (Terminalia bellirica) etc are effective in balancing the three doshas which eventually manages hyperaldosteronism. Some of the ayurvedic medicines available that effectively helps in managing hyperaldosteronism includes dashmoolarishta, kachnaar guggul, triphala guggul, arjunarishta etc. These above said medicines provide relief in hyperaldosteronism very well.

Our body secretes various hormones that are required for the normal physiological functions. Hormones in normal limits keeps the body and mind healthy but decreased or increased leads to a disease and becomes troublesome. Hyperaldosteronism is a similar condition that can develop from a number of factors. Secretion of aldosterone from adrenal gland increases that results in a number of symptoms that are quite problematic and can affect overall health and can cause injury to major organs. In the modern system of medicine, there is no permanent cure available though the surgery is indicated in some of the cases but the chances of recurrence remain high. But in Ayurveda, the management is done permanently and the balance of all the three doshas is established with the herbal formulations. There are herbs available that decrease the size of the adrenal hyperplasia impeccably and help in controlling or checking the inappropriate levels of aldosterone in the body naturally.

Natural Cure For Achalasia Cardia



In this article our main topic of discussion will be a very rare kind of disorder known as achalasia cardia. There are various kinds of health related ailments present in our surrounding some of them are very common about which everyone is well aware of, but there are some kind of ailments that occur very rarely, but carry great weightage in impairing our lifestyle. So let’s start putting some rays of limelight on how ayurveda deals with such ailments.

Achalasia Cardia


Achalasia cardia is defined as difficulty in passing food and liquid into the stomach. It occurs due to the result of damage to the nerves present in the esophagus. It is characterized by the presence of impaired relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) during the deglutition (swallowing) process leading to regurgitation of food back into the esophagus. The nerves of the esophagus become damaged and paralyzed; eventually they lose the ability to squeeze food down into the stomach. So it starts passing backward towards the mouth leading to the regurgitation of the food. As per ayurveda these kinds of disorders occur due to the presence of genetic deformity leading to generation of such ailments.


These are the main causes (nidan as per ayurveda) that results in formation of an ailment. Cause of achalasia cardia is not completely known, but various theories have been postulated, such as

  • Presence of infection.
  • Genetic involvement- Heredity is considered to play a major role in this.
  • Viral infections
  • Autoimmunity- Presence of an abnormality in the immune system, provoking it to cause damage to the own cells or particularly damage to esophageal muscles and nerves.

According to Ayurveda

  • There is an involvement of imbalance between the tridosha (three principle energies of our body- vata, pitta and kapha). Other important causes of such disorders are:
  • Presence of deformity in mother’s ovum and father’s sperm.
  • Intake of unwholesome diet by a pregnant lady.
  • Deformity in the beej bhaag (chromosomes) and beej bhag avyava (genes)


Most common characteristic feature seen in the patient of achalasia cardia is the regurgitation of the food into the throat.

Others are

  • Presence of pain in the chest region.
  • Weight loss.
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue and malaise
  • Inability to swallow (dysphasia)
  • Heartburn
  • Belching
  • Increased coughing at night time.
  • Vomiting.
  • Anorexia (loss of appetite)
  • Muscle loss.


  1. Through physical examination of the patient by using:
  2. Inspection
  3. Palpation
  4. Auscultation
  5. Percussion
  6. Radiation examination:
  7. Barium swallow test
    • In this barium in liquid form is given orally to the patient, and then the movement of this barium solution is seen through radiological investigation.
  8. Chest x ray: Shadow of the mass is seen clearly behind the sternum.
  9. Upper esophagogastroduodenoscopy.
  10. High resolution manometry (HRM) – to check rhythmic muscle contraction of esophagus when we swallow food.

According to Ayurveda

The two most preferred diagnostic procedures used by a physician are as follow

Trividh Pariksha (Group of 3 diagnostic procedures)

  • Darshan- Diagnosis is made by visual examination of the symptoms.
  • Sparshan- Physician uses tactile examination to evaluate whether skin is cold/hot
  • Prashan– Physicians ask direct questions from the patient, to evaluate the root cause of the disease i.e. history taking.

Asthavidh Pariksha (Set of 8 examination procedure)

  • Nadi pariksha– By palpating the pulse rate of the patient.
  • Mutra pariksha– By examining the urine of the patient.
  • Mal pariksha– By stool examination.
  • Jivha pariksha– By examining the tongue whether coated or not.
  • Shabad pariksha– By listening to the natural sounds within the body like intestinal sound (peristalsis) sounds of moving body fluids.
  • Sparsh pariksha– By observing the patient skin texture whether it is cool, wet or dry.
  • Drik pariksha– When a physician inspects patient symptoms through his/her eyes.
  • Akriti pariksha– When a physician evaluates the general appearance of a patient whether he/she looks dull, lethargic or fatigued etc.


Our main focus will be on stretching the lower esophageal sphincter, so that food will move easily down from the esophagus to the stomach.


  • Muscle Relaxant- to relax the esophageal muscles.
  • Antacids- for associated symptoms such as heartburn and acidity.


  • Heller myotomy- in this muscle at the lower end of the esophageal sphincter is removed surgically to allow food to pass more easily into the stomach.
  • Per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) – an endoscope inserted through mouth into the esophagus to create an incision in the inside lining of your esophagus.

As Per Ayurveda

We can manage such ailment by using below listed treatment modalities

A. Sanshodhan Chikitsa (detoxification and purification therapy)

  • In sanshodhan chikitsa we will purify the inner channels of our body (srotas) by using different procedures. Acharya charaka included five procedures in it, they are as follows- vaman (emesis), virechana (purgation), anuvasana basti (enema with medicated oil), niruha basti (enema with medicated decoction) and nasya karma (adding drops of medicated oil/ churna in the nostrils).
  • Before using sanshodhan chikitsa we need to use purva karma (foremost procedures) – they are the set of procedures that need to be done before main panchakarma procedures. They are very important as they help in preparing the body for the main purification procedures. It includes: deepan karma, pachana karma, snehana karma and swedana karma.
    • Deepan karma: In this we use deepaniya dravya to increase the digestive fire of the body.
    • Pachana karma: In this we use pachana dravya to digest the food substances.
    • Snehana karma (oleation therapy) Smoothing the body dosha’s by using herbal ghrit/oil.
    • Svedan karma (sudation therapy) – Semi-hot medicated kwath or other herbal solution is sprayed on the patient’s body by a specially made swedan yantra (instrument).
    • Vaman (emesis) – In this procedure we do elimination of toxins by using emetic herbs to take out vitiated kapha dosha from the body.
    • Virechana (purgation) – In this we use purgative herbs to take out vitiated pitta dosha from the anal route by purgation technique.

B. San Shaman Chikitsa (alleviating treatment)

  • In this treatment modality we use the herbal medicines by oral route to balance vitiated doshas within the body itself.
  • In this we can also use herbal formulation of planet ayurveda, as their products are made up of pure and standardized extract of herb and their products are also 100% organic and free from harmful chemicals and preservatives.
