Mast Cell Activation Syndrome Causes And Treatment In Ayurveda


Mast cells are the type of white blood cells and are an important part of our immune system. They grow in our body near the blood vessels, under the skin, bone marrow, lymph nodes, airways, GI tract, and nerves. Thus, mast cell abnormalities disturb the normal functioning of all these body functions. Mast cells have various chemicals that help to control immune responses. In this article, we will discuss various causes and symptoms of Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and its ayurvedic management. 

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome



Mast Cell Activation Syndrome is a condition in which a person experiences repeated episodes of allergic symptoms and other many symptoms along with it. Mast cells have longer life spans than other blood cells. They are a kind of blood cells that help to fight against infectious agents and are also involved in allergic reactions. Mast cells secrete various chemicals during allergic reactions in your body, but they can also have a negative impact in some cases due to several causes that may lead to various allergic reactions. It is difficult to manage various abnormal symptoms suddenly arising due to this syndrome. The symptoms can be acute as well as chronic, and some symptoms can also be referred to as life-threatening symptoms. 

Ayurvedic Aspect

According to Ayurveda improper lifestyle and eating habits can weaken the immune system and cause various other abnormalities in the body. The Ojas kshaya can cause various abnormalities in different parts of the body. The disbalance of doshas in the whole body leads to these abnormalities. These allergic symptoms like rhinitis, asthma, sinusitis and other disorders are triggered due to continuous intake of the Virudh diet. The treatment includes various panchakarma therapies, diet and lifestyle modifications, and herbal medicines.


Mast Cell Activation Syndrome occurs when mast cells release too many chemicals. The exact cause for this is not known. Other causes could be
