Ayurvedic Medicine for Avascular Necrosis (AVN)
New age diseases need new and better understanding, without that it is not possible to handle these. The same was needed for the treatment of Avascular necrosis with Ayurveda. When it comes to the treatment of any condition, medicines are an important factor for that. When 15 years back we started treating the cases of AVN. There were the least options for ayurvedic medicine for avascular necrosis. Here we will discuss the concept behind the medicines as well as the medicines which we are using at Sukhayu Ayurved for the reversal of Avascular Necrosis.
When we wanted to use some ayurvedic medicine for avascular necrosis, there were many options. You can use this or that. But when it came to a logical understanding of the disease, there was nothing.
It is a continuous practice and vigilant approach towards the treatment of AVN at Sukhayu. Because of this, we developed the treatment protocol and the following medicines are the result of the same. We have reversed more than 5000 cases of Avascular necrosis and the Ayurvedic medicines helped us for reversal of AVN.
Avascular Necrosis: The bone Death
Avascular necrosis, also known as aseptic or ischemic necrosis, is a condition in which there is a loss of function of bone tissue. The affected bones become fragile and may fracture easily.
Avascular necrosis occurs when blood flow to part of the bone blocks. Without blood flow, the bone tissue dies from a lack of nutrients and oxygen. This causes a decrease in the mass of that area of the bone.
People usually develop avascular necrosis because of decreased blood supply to the bone. And this lack of blood supply damages the bone and cartilage. Usually, this reduced blood supply happens gradually over time because:
The blood vessels leading to the affected bone narrow from atherosclerosis (the buildup of cholesterol and other substances along artery walls)or other diseases
The blood vessels blocks or narrows because of a bone fracture
In some people, the cause is unknown. In these cases, it is- idiopathic avascular necrosis.
Post Covid Avascular Necrosis this is just because of heavy steroid dosages, during treatment of Covid.
Treatment of AVN
The primary line of treatment is Replacement arthroplasty. However, conventional procedures associate with significant complications and failure rates. Newer forms of arthroplasty using cementless components have been designed to reduce wear and pain; however, these newer techniques remain in the early phases of clinical development and long-term results are unknown. Therefore, there is a need to explore adjunctive options for improving the prognosis of patients with avascular necrosis of the hip.
The treatment’s primary aim is to prevent bone tissue loss, enhance joint movement and alleviate pain in the joints. The approach is simple at Sukhayu. We follow the following approach-
- To stop the further progress of disease- immediately.
- Ensuring the safety of other joints. When AVN is in right hip alone to confine it to the right side alone or vice-versa.
- Avascular Necrosis can spread to other joints also- so to make sure that rest of your joints will be safe, is a prime approach.
- To reduce the pain.
- To resolve of the bone marrow edema.
- Healing the fractures and bone decay.
- Reversal of the Avascular Necrosis.
There are many factors like- age of the patient, cause of AVN, and grade of the disease, which play important role in deciding the line of treatment.
And to overcome all these hurdles what we needed- a complete set of Ayurvedic Medicines for Avascular necrosis, which can help every patient. The Avascular Necrosis Kit is something that can help every patient with Avascular necrosis, up to grade IV.
Logic Behind Ayurvedic medicines for Avascular Necrosis
Ayurvedic medicine is in practice in India for 5000 years. The traditional practice of Ayurveda includes the use of Tridosha concepts to restore health. The 3 fundamental principles are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Where all physiological processes are regulated by humor that must be kept in balance to maintain good health.
For better understanding we need to understand the involvement of the doshas and other factors once, this will help you to understand the logic behind Ayurvedic medicines for Avascular Necrosis.
Doshas involved in Avascular Necrosis
When it comes to any Ayurvedic treatment, the basic idea is- understanding the Doshas involved in the disease. The dosha triad- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, controls the body. These doshas regulate biological activities. Good or bad. Physiology or pathology- everything is under the control of these Doshas.
Vata controls movement. Every type of movement inside the body. This is Vata dosha which controls- carrying nutrition from one place to another place. Not only the nutrition. Excretion too.
In Avascular necrosis, both the actions- impair.
Because nutrition is not reaching the destination and waste products are collected there. This is how bone death continues.
Pitta and Kapha are “immobile”. These don’t move from one place to another, without Vata. Therefore, this is Vata which is the most important factor for the disease.
But, Vata has Ether and Air only. It cannot cause blockage. The blockage comes from- Kapha dosha. Because of the muddy nature of the Kapha, it causes blockage.
When two out of three doshas are vitiated, how can Pitta not?
The truth is, in every disease all these three doshas disturb. This is just grading, which we need to know. From above it is clear that this is more about Vata than Kapha and least about Pitta.
Dhatus in Avascular Necrosis
Ayurveda talks about seven Dhatus. Out of these seven, it is thought that Avascular Necrosis is a condition of Asthi Dhatu (the bone). But it is not so. Avascular necrosis is not about the “asthi-dhatu” (bone). Bone is affected. Bone is not the cause behind the disease.
Just for the example- if there is the decay of muscle, due to neuropathy- what do you need to correct? Muscle or the nerves. Obviously nerves. The same applies to AVN too. The problem is – “Avasculature” (loss of blood supply). Not the bone. If it will be confined to bony tissue only, then this condition won’t afflict any other tissue. But it does so.
So this is all about the vasculature. The second Dhatu, from the Ayurvedic perspective. Anything and everything that moves inside the body is controlled by Vata. But without a carrier, nothing can move. The carrier here is- Rakta, which loosely translates into the blood. Yes, this is the problem.
What diet can help in Avascular Necrosis
Hence, this is a disease where the passage is blocked due to Kapha dosha which entraps the Vata. Vata moves strongly when it doesn’t get passage. Strong movements cause- destruction.
But in between, we need to make sure- regeneration of bone and reversal of avascular necrosis, therefore we worked more in detail.
So we have all the logical details about Avascular necrosis, pathology as per Ayurvedic principles.
Ayurvedic Medicines for Avascular Necrosis
On the above principles and after a comprehensive work on Ayurvedic principles- we developed Ayurvedic medicines for avascular necrosis.
The main challenge was- there were only a few limited options with medicines in Ayurveda for osteonecrosis. Making sure that we are heading in the right direction was challenging for us. The cost was high and medicines needed to continue for long periods- therefore, challenges and obstacles were there.
High-Quality Ayurvedic Medicine
The second challenge was- it should be result orients. The main challenge in an uncommon condition was – to make sure that it will work and every patient can get the proper results. And we ended up with- Cap Ossium-8 and Powder Ossium. These were two which took a long time to research.
In Ayurveda along with medicine, another thing is- carrier. We needed a Kashayam.
The Kashayam in the market is bottled loaded with preservatives and self-generated alcohol too. Both are contraindicated in the case of Avascular Necrosis. So we worked on single-single herbs to make sure that we can provide the best quality Ayurvedic solution for Avascular Necrosis through Ayurveda. Brihat Manjisthadi Kashayam was other in the list.
Now came the third one- capsule Ankylocare and Tab. M.Forte. Finally here is the list of the Ayurvedic medicines for Avascular Necrosis-
- Cap. Ossium-8
- Powder Ossium
- Cap Ankylocare
- Br. Manjisthadi Kashayam
- Tab M. Forte
The main focus of Medicines for AVN
Targets are a must for success. The main thing was working on the Doshas and Dhatus. The Ayurvedic medicine for avascular necrosis should complete the following-
- It should balance all the three doshas with main focus on Vata Dosha.
- The medicine should imporve blood flow to the smaller arteries.
- Kidney-bone axis should get better with medicine.
- The balance of Gunas sould be there with medicines.
EVERYTHING SHOULD E ACCORDING TO BASIC PRINCIPLES OF AYURVEDIC TEXT– was the core concept.
This was a basic checklist with which we started working.
The outcome of medicines for AVN we were looking at were-
- Improve the blood supply.
- Reduces bone marrow edema.
- Removes the toxins from the dead tissue.
- Reduces the inflammation in joints.
- Imporves joint effusion.
- Heals the fractured bone.
But we knew that we should not give “calcium” compounds because we were sure this angle cannot work with Avascular Necrosis.
This journey was a rollercoaster journey for us. We made mistakes, tons of herbs were wasted.
And finally in 2010 success was there.
Ossium Capsules and Powder: Ayurvedic Medicine for Avascular Necrosis
Our target was to make sure that we are working on the classical principles of Ayurveda. The Powder Ossium was the first on the list when we started working on these Ayurveda medicines for AVN.
Patients with Chronic Renal Failure and other conditions where steroids were administered. In this case, medicines should be safe for kidneys, completely safe.
The main ingredients for the Ossium powder were-
- Guduchi Sattva
Strong medicines for Avascular medicine were the requirement of time because this is a condition that is progressive in nature. The Sooner we stop the progress of the condition better will be the outcome. With this approach, we worked on herbo-mineral preparation for this condition-
- Panchasoot Rasa
- Gokshuradi Guggulu
Total time to prepare the basic ingredient- Panchasoot Rasa, it takes 35 days for a single batch of the medicine. Because we prepare this in small batches and it is processed with herbs for a longer time, therefore, this works in smaller quantities. And it is easy to use.
Medicines for blood supply were there but it was important simultaneously to save the joint shape. Because of the effusion inside the joints, the bone decay becomes aggressive in case of avascular necrosis.
Because of the problem in joints, limping becomes a serious challenge in patients with Avascular Necrosis. Capsule Ankylocare helps in both things.
This is an oil-based preparation.
Brihat Manjisthadi Kashyam
This is a classical preparation of Ayurveda. This works as a carrier for Ossium and Ankylocare. So that these medicines will give the best results. Besides a carrier, it works as an anti-inflammatory and blood purifier too.
We don’t use bottled medicine. Because alcohol and preservatives deteriorate the condition of avascular necrosis. Patients need to prepare this Kashayam daily and this is as easy as preparing the tea.
Shallaki along with Mamsarohini and Rasna makes the best combination to reduce the inflammation and helps in settling down the pain too.
Avascular Necrosis Kit: Ayurvedic Medicine for AVN
All the above medicines together are collectively presented as Avascular Necrosis Kit. Because Sukhayu is not selling medicines on its own, you need to buy these medicines from our website, which is exclusive for Avascular necrosis treatment.
The kit has medicines for one month.
If you want to consult with me, directly- consult once, and if there will be some requirement of change in the medicines, I will guide you personally. There will be some dietary instructions required along with these medicines, you can ask after buying the kit on the Whatsapp number too.
Impact of Ayurvedic medicine for Avascular Necrosis
In the last 15 years, 5000 patients who reversed their avascular necrosis show results of the ayurvedic medicines of Avascular necrosis, prepared at Sukhayu Ayurved. These 5000 patients who got a new life and started walking again on their own are the impact of ayurvedic medicine for avascular necrosis.
This is possible because, it fulfills all the requirements, that we needed for the Ayurveda treatment of AVN without surgery.
The core concept is nothing against- surgery or the conventional medical system. The main core is to make sure that we want to help people to get rid of the “unwanted and vicious cycle of surgery”. Because we know fitting the prosthetics doesn’t solve the problem of a patient with osteonecrosis. Here we are answering a few questions, we come across every day.
FAQs about Ayurvedic medicine for Avascular Necrosis
More than 5000 patients have witnessed the recovering decaying joints and there cannot be a shred of evidence bigger than this.
Medicines help in healing the bones. But, because this is an aggressive condition, therefore, Panchakarma for Avascular Necrosis becomes important in cases.
These medicines are well tested in all grades- grade I to grade IV.
Yes. These medicines come from classical Ayurvedic methods.
