Natural Cure For Angiomyomatous Lymphoid Hamartoma Disease
Like blood our body has one more fluid which runs throughout the body. This fluid is called Angiomyomatous lymphoid hamartoma and circulates through the lymphatic vessels. This fluid contains white blood cells which helps the immune system to fight the infection. Unlike blood this fluid is colourless. There are many diseases that attack the lymphatic system of our body. For example Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, lymphadenitis, lymphangitis etc. Today we are going to discuss a disease which is not so common, but there have been some cases described in medical literature i.e Angiomatous lymphoid hamartoma.
Introduction Of Angiomyomatous Lymphoid Hamartoma
Angiomyomatous lymphoid hamartoma is a rare medical condition in which mainly the involvement of inguinal and femoral lymph nodes is seen. Lymph nodes are bean shaped glands which filter the substances in the lymphatic fluid and also contain lymphocytes that play an important role in the immune system of our body. This disease is characterised by thickened walls of blood vessels which replaces the normally arranged lymph node parenchyma. The exact causative pathogen is not known. It was first described by Chan et al. in 1991. This condition or disease is also known with other names like Castleman disease, Giant lymph node hyperplasia, Angiofollicular lymph hyperplasia and Benign giant lymphoma.

Ayurvedic point of view On Angiomyomatous Lymphoid Hamartoma
In the Ayurvedic system of medicine, the approach of diagnosis and preparing a treatment plan is totally holistic in nature. According to the ancient texts of Ayurveda, the human body is composed of five elements i.e Space, Air, Water, Fire, and Soil (Earth). These five elements in a fixed proportion come together in three different forms which constitute a dosha (life processing energy). There are a total three doshas described in Ayurveda i.e Vata, Pitta and Kapha dosha. These life energies work in a balanced way in a healthy human being. A disease is nothing but an imbalance in these doshas or one of them. Therefore to treat a disease the aim should be bringing that lost balance in the dosha which is involved in causing a particular disease. In Angiomatous lymphoid hamartoma the culprit is Kapha dosha.
