Interstitial lung disease in Ayurveda

Ayurveda-The ray of hope in Interstitial lung disease

Interstitial lung disease ayurvedaWe have treated a wide variety of cases of Interstitial lung disease (ILD) . Results vary depending upon age and extent of lung damage. Minimum 3 months of treatment are required to show clinical improvement . Remarkable improvement has been noticed in a number of patients where the extent of lung damage was not total.

What does Ayurveda say about ILD?

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) in Ayurveda  is described under ‘shwas roga’.

Shwas Roga is a broad term encompassing all the respiratory diseases. ILD is a ‘sannipapata’ disorder (involving all the three doshas) with the predominance of ‘Vata’ dosha (air element) in Kapha seat. Pitta (fire element) and Kapha (water element ) also get disturbed but the degree of involvement varies according to etiological factors,age,habitat e.t.c.

In modern medcine Interstitial tissue is the name given to the tissue around the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. Interstitial lung disease  occurs when an injury (by internal /external factors) to the lung interstitium causes an abnormal healing response. As a result the interstitial tissue becomes scarred and thickened. So Oxygen enters the blood with difficulty.

The patient usually complains of difficulty in breathing and dry cough.Ayurvedic treatment interstitial lung disease

The known causes are :

  • Occupational and environmental factors
  • Radiation therapies
  • Medication and Infection
  • Autoimmune conditions like SLE, Scleroderma, Sarcoidosis
  • In most of the cases the cause is unknown.

How we treat it at HimVeda:

We decide the line of treatment for  after assessing the disease status and going through the investigations.Thereafter we judge the body constitution of the patient  and status of Agni (metabolism) at cellular level. Mostly Pungent and Bitter tasting herbs are selected and then processed according to the stage of disease and body type of the patient. We don’t advise costly Panchakarma procedures for this condition. Medicine and diet alone suffice.

When patients first come to us, they are usually on Steroids. After about 2 months of Ayurvedic treatment, Steroids are no longer needed.

Lifestyle and Diet:

Breathlessness gives a tough time to the patient. To reduce the mucus congestion in chest we advise upper back massage at bedtime. This is done with special oils but can also be done with lukewarm sesame /mustard oil with a pinch of salt mixed in it. This is followed by hot water fomentation.
