Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Mixed Connective-Tissue Disease (MCTD)

Mixed connective-tissue Disease is a serious disorder which is a combination of several autoimmune diseases such as Reynaud's phenomenon, arthritis, myositis, skin rash, and involvement of the heart and lungs. Mixed connective-tissue disease usually results from a decreased or compromised immunity, in which the immune complex of the body works against itself. This condition is more common in women, and its onset is usually seen in a young age.

Mixed connective-tissue disease is usually treated in the modern system of medicine with steroids and other medicines which suppress the body immunity. While this gives symptomatic relief initially, the long-term results are not favorable and the side-effects of these medicines can be considerable and quite serious. Ayurvedic herbal treatment is very effective in the treatment of mixed connective-tissue disease. The most important aspect of Ayurvedic treatment is that it aims to correct the autoimmune process going on in the body of the affected individual. Correction of the immune complex is a must in order to treat the condition completely. Ayurvedic herbal medicines normalize the immune process and treat the inflammatory reaction going on in the body, which results in the manifestation of autoimmune disorders mentioned above.

Ayurvedic herbal medicines are aimed at normalizing and correcting the tissues of the body such as blood, muscle, fat, skin, as well as the imported internal organs. This process is usually slow and takes around eighteen to twenty-four months in order to show significant improvement. However, treatment in this manner corrects and normalizes the inflammatory process going on in these tissues and in the internal organs and thereby leads to a complete cure of the condition. Aggressive treatment of this condition in the initial phase of the disease is advisable in order to prevent serious manifestations of the imported internal organs in the long run. Involvement of the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys can be serious and possibly fatal; hence early recognition of these conditions and prompt treatment is very important.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment is thus very effective in the management of mixed connective-tissue disease and this treatment should be offered to all individuals affected with this condition, since the viable and effective treatment options for this condition are few in the modern system of medicine.
