Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia is also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome. This is a rare and genetically determined disorder which causes a tendency to bleeding from blood vessels in the body. While bleeding within the conjunctiva, nose, mucosa and skin usually has a favorable prognosis, bleeding in the lungs, liver, and brain is present in a small percentage of patients and may have serious complications.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment for this condition is aimed at treating the bleeding tendency inherent in the affected individual. Ayurvedic herbal medicines which have a specific action on the blood and on the clotting mechanism in the blood are used in the management of this condition. Herbal medicines which act on the blood vessels and capillaries are also important while treating this condition. A combination of these medicines gradually reduces the tendency to bleeding and can help affected individuals lead normal lives.

Once the bleeding tendency in affected individuals has been controlled, further Ayurvedic treatment is given so as to prevent recurrence of the condition and provide for long-term remission from the condition. In order to achieve this, Ayurvedic herbal medicines which act on the blood tissue, the liver and spleen, and the bone marrow are used on a long-term basis so that the bleeding tendency does not return even after discontinuing the medicines. A majority of individuals affected with this condition require Ayurvedic herbal treatment for four to six months in order to obtain significant remission from the symptoms of this condition. Most individuals can lead perfectly normal lives after a successful course of treatment of Ayurvedic medicines.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment thus has a significant contribution to play in the management and treatment of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Individuals affected with this condition may need to adopt adequate lifestyle changes to prevent damage and injury to the limbs and internal organs.
