How to Treatment Leptomeningeal Enhancement Through Ayurveda


As mentioned in many articles before, there are many conditions in the world which are like a surprise. They won’t show any sign of existence and suddenly will appear like boom! I am here. Sometimes such conditions can bring pleasure like getting a promotion, a decent hike in salary, marrying your loved one, being pregnant or on the other hand can be unpleasant as well. Unpleasant ones can include a sudden death in the family, death of your loved one, a car accident, mishap in the house, being diagnosed with a disease. For a quick guess, being diagnosed with a disease hits really hard. Why? Because it’s your body who’s gonna suffer (might be through hell) and you can do nothing but to pop in some pills. In this article we are gonna discuss a condition which is like a surprise as it is not an independent disease but mostly seen as a symptom of many conditions. The name of this condition is Leptomeningeal Enhancement. In this article we will discuss its details along with its Ayurvedic management.


Leptomeningeal enhancement is a non-specific imaging feature. Leptomeningeal enhancement or disease is also termed as a late stage complication of systemic cancers. The reason for this is the multifocal metastases to the leptomeninges. This lepto meninges consist of pia mater, arachnoid mater and subarachnoid space. The commonest neoplastic etiologies of leptomeningeal disease are breast cancer, lung cancer, gastro intestinal, melanoma and primary central nervous system cancers like medulloblastoma, ependymoma, pineoblastoma, primitive neuroectodermal or primary CNS lymphoma. The conditions like non hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukaemia and multiple myeloma can also cause this condition. Even after targeted radiation and chemotherapy, survival remains poor. But in case of breast cancer the best prognosis is observed, that is 13-25% survival is noted.

Ayurvedic view point about Leptomeningeal enhancement

  • Leptomeningeal enhancement as mentioned above is the result of metastatic cancer mostly. Ayurveda suggests that cancer is the result of all three dosha aggravations along with dhatu dushti as well. As this is the case of metastasis obviously there is dosha involvement here as well. In this, there is tridosha aggravation, predominantly vata dosha and kapha dosha. The symptoms in this condition like cerebral dysfunction which is due to vata dosha, headaches due to kapha dosha, seizures due to vata and kapha dosha explains clear cut dominance of these two dosha.
  • Leptomeningeal enhancement is also having symptoms like pains in various parts of the body which at last is the result of vitiated vata dosha in the body, disruption of blood brain barrier, visual disturbances is also the result of vitiated vata dosha. Ischemia in vessels (if involved) is due to both vata and kapha dosha vitiation. 
  • In this case a very precise treatment is to be given. A combination of herbs and herbal formulations that can work in the pacification of vata and kapha dosha. Also can help in the enhancement of immunity of a person so that the body’s capacity is raised to fight various types of unwanted processes going on inside the body. But it’s very clear in Ayurveda that only sama dosha (tridosha in a balanced state) can provide the exclusive immunity required.
  • There are many minerals and herbs that work effectively. Herbs like shallaki, haridra, ashwagandha, tagar, brahmi have very impressive results in this case. Minerals like calx of kant loha, swarna, moti and vanga give impressives results in conditions like leptomeningeal enhancement. Mostly the combination of these herbs and minerals are used in neuromuscular conditions or specifically in neurological conditions.
