Ayurvedic perspective of ITP

According to Ayurveda, the three energies form our body – Vata, Pitta and Kapha, when the imbalance occurs between any of them, the disease occurs. ITP is a Raktapittadisorder (Rakta – blood), which occurs due to increased pitta in our body. This aggravation of pitta dosha occurs due to the consumption of pitta provoking foods such as sour, salty and spicy foods. These  foods lead to an increase in Amlabhava, which forms Ama Rasa and vitiates the pitta

Treatment of Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) in Ayurveda

Overview

Hemolytic uremic syndrome(HUS) is a serious condition which is marked by an abnormal activity of destruction of the body’s red blood cells and, consequently, a low platelet count. The condition can put affected individuals at a potential risk of kidney failure because the filtering system of the kidneys can get clogged by the damaged red blood cells.Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is, therefore, a condition which affects two body systems the blood stream and the kidneys. Besides leading to life-threatening kidney failure, the condition can also cause some other serious health complications, including heart problems, stroke, coma, high blood pressure, and intestinal disorders like inflammatory colitis.

Hemolytic-Uremic-Syndrome

Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) can affect both children and adults. The condition is basically of two types: Typical and Atypical. The main trigger for Typical HUS is a diarrheal infection which is usually caused by a particular strain of toxin-producing E. coli bacteria found in the intestines E.coli OH157:H7. However, Atypical HUS is not linked to any digestive tract infection, and has a comparatively less favorable outcome.Apart from the mentioned E.coli strain, some of the other causes of Hemolytic uremic syndrome includes the use of certain medications – like quinine sulphate, certain chemotherapy and immunosuppressant medications, and anti-platelet medications as well as HIV/AIDS or an infection with the pneumococcal bacteria.
