ITP(Ideopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura)

ITP(Immune ThrombocytoPenia (or Formerly known as Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura) is a disease in which immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys platelets of the patient which resulta in easy or excessive bruising and bleeding and unusually low levels of platelets.There can be multiple causes of this disease like unusually low levels of platelets, other immune system disorder(like HIV etc) or any other kind of medical history(viral illness, mumps etc.


Diagnosis

CBC(Complete Blood Count),Blood smear(platelet testing) and Bone marrow Test


Allopathic Treatment Aspect and side effects

The ITP patients have no definite cure in allopathy but some treatments like Steroid based Treatments, injections to temporarily raise platelets, medicines to boost platelets and surgery to remove spleen. All of the above treatments not only are having temporary benefits but loads of side effects like increased risk of infections, high blood sugar and osteoporosis, increase your risk of blood clots,spleen removal which permanently increases susceptibility to infection etc.

Patient should be given such diet which is fortified with nutrients. He should be uplifted to do effortless exercises which does not strain his fragile health. He should be kept engaged in fruitful activities which strengthen the good tendencies inherent in him.Patient is advised to do regular exercise. If the patient is incapable of exercising or running due to weakness, then steaming (swedanam) is also recommended. "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"-Hippocrates


Ayurvedic Aspect

In ayurveda we can understand I.T.P. as "DHATWAGINI VISHAMTA" i.e. the metabolic fires in the body of the patient become unbalanced(Vishamit) and the 'PIIT' of our body which develops problems is known as "Ranjak Piit" which is in liver and spleen.

When we treat such patients through ayurvedic medicines we get miraculous results as:

  • We work on "DHATWAGINI VISHAMTA" of the patient
  • We work on "Ranjak Piit" (which is in liver and spleen)
  • We work on blocked micro channels of vitiated dhatus(otherwise known as sarotasm)

To understand the above concept in detail we need to know how hour body works (as per ayurveda)


As far as ayurveda is concerned, it believes in the doctorine of Dhatus. The dhatus are seven in number:
  • Rasa Dhatu( Lymph)
  • Rakat Dhatu (Blood)
  • Masam dhatu (Skin and Muscles)
  • Meda Dhatu (Body fat)
  • Aasti Dhatu (Bone)
  • Majja Dhatu ( Bone Marrow)
  • Shukra Dhatu

It is believed that daily when we take meals the nourishment gradually travels from one dhatu to the other proceeding dhatu and all the dhatus are hence nourished.

One dhatu is connected to the next dhatu by micro channels known as srotasam

The inability of the body to maintain homeostasis is a primary indication of poor health as the organism is not able to adapt to internal or external stimuli. This inability to respond indicates poor health from the lack of functional reaction to internal and external stimulus. The result of this reduced response is either an inappropriate immune response (auto-immune) or little to no immune response (inadequate or suppressed immune response or wrong immune response).

The resulting vision of Ayurvedic pathology offers the possibility to develop individualized treatment modules according to causal factors. The causal factor will be one of the three dosha that is prevented from correct functional communication due to lifestyle habits, diet, secondary effects of medication, environmental chemicals, or psychosomatic reasons that have not been addressed in this discussion. The possible causes for the disruption of dosha function are unlimited. If identified the causes should be removed, and homeostasis should be re-established. Through identification of causal factors that inhibit immune response treatments that re-establish homeostasis would also allow the innate power (Baala) of immunity to manifest on a general level.

In any case we would like to add that irrespective of the fact where the patient is getting treated for this ailment, you can always approach us for advise and we shall always try to provide the best guidelines true to the best of our knowledge.
