Chronic conjunctivitis When the eye is irritated
“My eyes are constantly red”, “The eyelids are swollen”, “I have a pressure behind my forehead”.
This is how people with chronic conjunctivitis experience their suffering.
It is not uncommon for conjunctivitis to persist for years. Not only the eyes feel inflamed, subjectively the entire upper head is often involved in the pain. What’s more, everyone sees it, which further intensifies the suffering.
The symptoms are always similar, no matter whether the triggers are allergy-producing substances, occupational dusts or recurrent infections of the protective covering of the eyes.
How does Vedic Medicine view chronic conjunctivitis?
Chronic conjunctivitis from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, Chronic conjunctivitis start with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced – due to our way of life – which in the case of conjunctivitis accumulate in the conjunctiva of the eyes. Often, the on-again, off-again triggers of the familiar symptoms are not obvious at first glance.
According to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so each conjunctivitis is different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, chronic conjunctivitis is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
