Fragile X Syndrome – Ayurveda Herbal Treatment

Herbal Remedies for Fragile X Synndrome


Fragile X syndrome is an inherited genetic disease which is passed down from parents to children which causes developmental and intellectual disabilities. Fragile X syndrome is also known as Martin-Bell- syndrome. Fragile X syndrome is the genetic condition which causes a range of developmental problems which includes cognitive impairment and also includes learning disabilities. Commonly, males are more prone than females. Most of the males with this disease have mild to moderate intellectual disability and about one-third of affected females are intellectually disabled. Let’s discuss this disease in detail.


Fragile X syndrome is the genetic condition involving changes in a person’s X chromosome which triggers several developmental challenges such as cognitive impairment and learning disabilities. Children with fragile-X syndrome may include anxiety and hyperactive behaviour such as impulsive actions and fidgeting. The disease is caused by the reduction of expression of fragile X mental retardation protein and also associated with the variety of behavioural, medical and physical problems which are managed through the supportive treatment. Fragile X syndrome is an X-linked disorder which affects approximately 1 in 4000 males and females. The disease in Ayurveda is correlated with the Beejja dushti (ova and spermatozoa). In Fragile X-syndrome during fertilisation, all Tridoshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) are aggravated in which Vata dosha mainly vitiates and  results in this disease.

Ayurvedic Overview Of Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is a genetic disorder and also known as Martin -Bell syndrome. As we all know that Ayurveda is a science which has the capability to manage all types of diseases. The disease occurs due to genetic disorder and in Ayurveda all the genetic disorders occur due to the Beeja dushti (which means injury or damage to sperm or ova). In genetic disorders all three doshas are vitiated during fertilisation but in this disease aggravation of Vata dosha mainly occurs, which results in fragile X syndrome. During fertilisation shukra and shonita (sperm and ovum) vitiated because of aggravated tridoshas and later on domination of Vata dosha results in Fragile X syndrome. The disease is genetic and hence can not be diagnosed properly but symptoms of this disease can be managed by taking the remedies which are given below:
