Ayurvedic Treatment of Antiphospholipid syndrome

Abstract

Antiphospholipid syndrome is an autoimmune disorder. Now a day’s autoimmune disorders are increasing day by day due to our bad lifestyle and bad diet. These disorders are a condition in which our immune system attacks our body mistakenly. Our immune system normally guards against various bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. In a normal way our immune system can tell the difference between a normal cell and a foreign body. But in autoimmune diseases, this immune system mistakes parts of our body like joints, skin etc. This system releases the protein which is called auto antibodies that attack healthy cells. There are numerous autoimmune disorders such as Rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Antiphospholipid syndrome, scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematosus etc. So we are going to discuss Antiphospholipid syndrome in this article and its Ayurvedic management through herbal remedies.

Antiphospholipid-Syndrome

Introduction

Antiphospholipid syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder. In these diseases our immune system makes antibodies that attack phospholipids. Phospholipid is a lipid molecule in all types of living cells. This is the main component of the cell membrane. Phospholipids are useful for making protective barriers or membranes around the body’s cell. These are formed in the body to form cell and cell membrane. Phospholipids provide barriers in cell membranes which protect the cell. So in this disease phospholipids are attacked by the body’s own auto antibodies and provoke blood clots in both arteries and veins. In rare cases, these syndrome leads to rapid organ failure because of thrombosis and is associated with a risk of death.

Etiology/Causes

There is no exact cause for this disease. Genetic defect plays a key role in this disease. Also as we said above that it occurs when our body attacks our own phospholipids mistakenly but the exact reason is still unknown.

Clinical Features/Signs and Symptoms

The symptoms presented by the patient of this syndrome include:

  • Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in legs)
  • Stillbirth or repeated miscarriages due to severe preeclampsia
  • Stroke
  • Rash
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Headache
  • Attacks of migraine
  • Epileptic attacks

Risk Factors

Risk factor for this syndrome includes:

  • Other immune disorders such as SLE or Sjogren’s syndrome etc
  • Infections such as AIDS, Hepatitis C
  • Family history
  • More common to women

Diagnosis

Antiphospholipid syndrome is diagnosed by some blood investigations. When you have recurrent episodes of miscarriage and also history of blood clots then doctor will prescribe you following blood tests:

  • Liquid phase coagulation assays
  • Solid phase ELISA (Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay)
  • Lupus anticoagulant

Treatment

If there is no any symptom then no treatment is required. But if a patient is facing symptoms then treatment is required. For thrombosis, anticoagulants such as Warfarin are used to prevent thrombosis further. But there is no permanent treatment for this disease in Modern science. They just simply treat this syndrome according to symptoms.
