Interstitial lung disease in Ayurveda

Ayurveda-The ray of hope in Interstitial lung disease

Interstitial lung disease ayurvedaWe have treated a wide variety of cases of Interstitial lung disease (ILD) . Results vary depending upon age and extent of lung damage. Minimum 3 months of treatment are required to show clinical improvement . Remarkable improvement has been noticed in a number of patients where the extent of lung damage was not total.

How we treat it at HimVeda:

We decide the treatment  after assessing the disease status and going through the investigations.Thereafter we judge the body constitution of the patient  and status of Agni (metabolism) at cellular level. Mostly Pungent and Bitter tasting herbs are selected and then processed according to the stage of disease and body type of the patient.

We don’t advise Panchakarma procedures for this condition. Heart of the patient must be strong in order to withstand Panchakarma, otherwise many side effects will be produced. ILD weakens the heart and lungs. So medicine and diet alone suffice.

When patients first come to us, they are usually on Steroids. After about 2 months of Ayurvedic treatment, Steroids are slowly reduced.

How to contact HimVeda?

You can simply give us a call on 9736853285 and we will connect you to Dr Guleria. After a brief initial discussion, he will ask for some medical record which can be sent on whatsapp. Once he is satisfied that good results can be achieved then we can book an appointment for you to come to the clinic. Medicines can also be sent online if so desired but only after a detailed discussion with Dr Guleria over phone.

What does Ayurveda say about ILD?

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) in Ayurveda  is described under ‘shwas roga’.

Shwas Roga is a broad term encompassing all the respiratory diseases. ILD is a ‘sannipapata’ disorder (involving all the three doshas) with the predominance of ‘Vata’ dosha (air element) in Kapha seat. Pitta (fire element) and Kapha (water element ) also get disturbed but the degree of involvement varies according to etiological factors,age,habitat e.t.c.

In modern medcine Interstitial tissue is the name given to the tissue around the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. Interstitial lung disease  occurs when an injury (by internal /external factors) to the lung interstitium causes an abnormal healing response. As a result the interstitial tissue becomes scarred and thickened. So Oxygen enters the blood with difficulty.

The patient usually complains of difficulty in breathing and dry cough.Ayurvedic treatment interstitial lung disease

Lifestyle and Diet:

Breathlessness gives a tough time to the patient. To reduce the mucus congestion in chest we advise upper back massage at bedtime. This is done with special oils but can also be done with lukewarm sesame /mustard oil with a pinch of salt mixed in it. Sometimes we advise a powder pottali (bolus) massage.This is followed by hot water fomentation.

  • Varadalaxmi says:

    My husband, age 48, is diagnosed ILD…progressive lung fibrosis 2 months before..
    Symptoms of dry cough during night and any time after speaking misguided us to asthamatic situation. But one month before diagnosis he started showing symptoms such as fatigue and fast breath after taking bath, after climbing more than two floors. He never smoked.
    BUT, from day one after diagnosis he was kept on medrol 16 mg twice a day. We started aayurvedic treatment at the same time. 2 months before his pft was 29% . 6 weeks after treatment it is 39%. He tapered down medrol and stopped it. After stopping 10/13 days were absolutely fine…no coughing, no humming while sleeping…no fatigue, no breathlessness.. But he started showing the same symptoms again and oxy level spo2 seems to be decreased from the range of 97-98 to 94 -96.
    Aayurvedic medication is going on. But how to make his nights free from these irritating symptoms….do not understand. He is doing pulmonary rehab exercises every day…We are concerned about the quality of life along with reversal of disease.
    He feels like taking medrol again to get rid of the symptoms.
