Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Churg Strauss Syndrome

Churg Strauss syndrome is also known as allergic angiitis and allergic granulomatosis. This disease can be caused as a reaction to certain medicines or because of a dysfunctional immune system and causes symptoms such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, skin rash, fever, gastrointestinal bleeding, joint pains and swelling; pain, numbness and tingling in the extremities, and bleeding. This disease causes inflammation in the blood vessels, thereby reducing the blood supply to organs and tissues and causing a dysfunction of the organs or permanent damage, leading to peripheral nerve damage, scarring of the skin and long term complications of the heart and kidney.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment for Churg Strauss syndrome is aimed at treating the inflammation in the blood vessels and improving blood supply to the different organs and systems. Medicines are also given to reduce the damaged done to different organs; prevent long term complications, and reducing or reversing the extent of damage to the organs. Herbal medicines which have a known anti-inflammatory action and also have a specific affinity for the blood vessels are used in high doses in the management and treatment of this condition. Other herbal medicines are also used which reduce and remove the toxins from the blood and flush them from the body either through the gastrointestinal system or through the kidneys.

Ayurvedic herbal medicines are also given for symptomatic treatment for asthma, rhinitis, sinusitis, skin rash, fever, pain, swelling, and bleeding. In addition, Ayurvedic herbal medicines are also used to strengthen the nervous system as well as peripheral nerves in order to prevent long-term damage and pain. Ayurvedic immunomodulatory herbal agents are also used in high doses in order to boost the immune status of the affected individual so as to reduce treatment time and bring about a remission and cure.

Most individuals affected with Churg Strauss syndrome require Ayurvedic herbal treatment for periods ranging from 18-24 months, depending upon the severity of the symptoms and the damage to the different organs and systems. Ayurvedic herbal treatment thus has a definite role to play in the management and treatment of this condition.
