Sarcoidosis When the connective tissue gets out of control
“I often have a cough to the point of shortness of breath”, “I feel tired for no reason”, “I have small nodules on my lower legs.”
This or something similar is how people with sarcoidosis may experience their symptoms.
Sarcoidosis, also called Boeck’s disease, can affect the entire body. In this case, the connective tissue forms nodules without an identifiable cause in a wide variety of places: in the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, eyes, heart, skeleton and bone marrow, as well as in the spleen or skin.
There are acute and chronic forms, in which the symptoms develop insidiously. But all of them have in common that the immune system shows typical signs of inflammation with increased defense bodies.
How does Vedic medicine view sarcoidosis?
Sarcoidosis from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, sarcoidosis starts with the loss of natural balance.
Due to our way of life, metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced. In the case of sarcoidosis, they accumulate everywhere in the body and disrupt the function of certain organs particularly intensively.
But according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike, and so every sarcoidosis is different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, sarcoidosis 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.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. Thus, in any form of sarcoidosis, the focus will be on the elimination of toxins. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures for balancing the disturbed immune system – all put together especially for you – help with a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers can effectively mitigate the symptoms of sarcoidosis.
