Ayurvedic Treatment of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is an autoimmune condition in which the destruction of the platelets leads to the excess of bleeding. At initial stages, it is not a big deal, but with time it becomes a critical condition. So, it is better to take treatment at the initial stage.

In the modern system of medicines, doctors prescribe over-the-counter medications such as steroids that alleviate the symptoms, but also cause many side effects that lead to many complications. They also recommend transfusion of platelets, which increase platelet count but platelets get decrease again after some time. Surgery is also a treatment option that has many side effects.

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

But, there is also an option for treatment that completely treats ITP and does not have any side effects, namely, Ayurveda.

Ayurveda offers various herbs, which naturally treat illness and these herbs are also used to prepare herbal products. Planet Ayurveda provides the best ITP care packs for kids, children, and adults.

Causes

There are several reasons for Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. This is mainly due to the destruction of platelets in the body. This occurs when the immune system does not function properly and accidentally attacks platelet cells, causing platelet levels to decrease.

Symptoms

  1. Bruises over the whole body
  2. Bleeding from the gums and nose
  3. Unusual heavy menstrual flow
  4. Blood in urine or stools
  5. Continued bleeding from injuries incurred accidentally

Treatment of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

As we discussed earlier, in the modern system of medicines, some of the medicines which are prescribed  to the patient and produce many side effects, are the following:

Corticosteroids/Steroids

It is most usually prescribed for ITP patients. It is used to increase the platelet count but decreases when the patient stops to take them. It also produces side effects such as Weight gain, Puffy cheeks, and Lowers bone density.

Androgens

It can also be prescribed for ITP patients but avoid in women. It also has a side effect, it grows unwanted hair at different parts of the body.

Surgery

Surgery is the last option in modern medicine when platelets are not increased. The spleen is removed from the body because it destroys the platelets but is not always successful. The removal of spleen decreases the body’s ability to cope against infections of various kinds.
