In this article, you will study the symptoms and ayurvedic therapies and medicines that can help manage the symptoms and improve the quality of life by enhancing immunity.
Severe combined immunodeficiency is an inherited disorder that is defined as a disease that compromises the immune system and makes the body susceptible to many infections. It affects the function of infection-fighting immune cells (T-cells. B cells and NK cells) depending on the type of SCID. These cells are important to defend the body against many infectious agents, whereas due to the damage to these cells, the body gets prone to many infections and diseases. SCID causes mutations in the genes that are involved in the development and proper functioning of T-cells. B cells and NK cells. In the initial stages, the children appear healthy but over time, they become susceptible to many infectious diseases that become a concern.
According to Ayurveda ‘Oja” is immunity that helps in body defense. Ojas is correlated to immunity in Ayurveda. Oja kshaya (suppressed immune system) can be fatal and invites many infectious diseases to your body. Oja kshaya from birth can be either due to poorvaj karma, or due to wrong habits of the mother during the pregnancy. There are many ayurvedic remedies in ancient ayurvedic texts to enhance the body’s immunity naturally. Those remedies are followed and recommended to the patients to achieve the goals of perfect immunity in the body. Whereas the disease is genetic and poorvaj, the permanent cure is hard to achieve, but life is made easy with side effects-free lifestyle modifications.
