Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Aplastic Anemia

Aplastic anemia is a medical condition resulting from bone marrow failure in which the production of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets decreases drastically. Nearly 80% of individuals affected with aplastic anemia have some acquired cause of the disease which includes infectious diseases, toxic exposure, drug reactions, and unknown factors. A severely dysfunctional immune system is believed to be the cause for aplastic anemia. Common symptoms for this condition include severe anemia, bleeding, fever, and infections.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment for aplastic anemia is aimed at treating the known cause of the condition, improving the immune status of the affected individual, and giving medicines which act on the bone marrow. Treating the dysfunctional immune status of the individual is of utmost importance, since a strong immunity can help bring about an early reversal of symptoms and a complete cure. Ayurvedic herbal medicines which act directly on the bone marrow and stimulate it to produce the normally required amount of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, are used in high doses for prolonged periods.

In addition, medicines which act on the liver and spleen as well as the blood tissue are also used in combination with the above-mentioned medicines. This combination treatment helps in an earlier remission from the symptoms of aplastic anemia, brings about an early cure, and prevents recurrence of the condition. The use of Ayurvedic immunomodulatory herbal agents reduces the treatment time and helps in maintaining the strength, stamina and vitality of the affected individual.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment can also be given as supportive treatment in addition to modern conventional treatment. Treatment with Ayurvedic herbal medicines is normally required for a period of about 18-24 months, in order to bring about significant improvement in the affected individual; however, a few patients with mild or moderate disease may get remission much earlier.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus be judiciously utilised in the management and treatment of aplastic anemia.
