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.

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.
