Hidradenitis Suppurativa, also known as acne inversa, a chronic skin condition characterized by painful, inflamed, and recurrent abscesses or boils in areas of the body, has long been misunderstood and misdiagnosed.
Ayurveda always has shed light on its complex nature and opened doors to a more effective treatment methodology.
The Traditional Approach: Control vs. Complete treatment
Patients with Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) may experience symptomatic relief with conventional allopathy treatments however, these treatments are not without inherent risks.
It is important to note that continued utilisation of antibiotics can potentially result in dependence and the development of antibiotic resistance.
Potential side effects and chronic complications may also arise from the administration of medications such as immunosuppressants & biologics. These medications often disrupt the regular functioning of the immune system, resulting in a compromised ability of the body to defend itself against various illnesses.
Practitioners are focused more on management of the disease than complete treatment of the condition. The medications used usually have high side effects, and the practitioner’s job is now to also cycle or change their medication to different classes of medicines available as the patients plateau or start showing an increase in particular side effects from the medication.
However, this symptom-focused strategy frequently neglects the root-cause treatment, and medicating the symptoms does not result in remission from the disease. Our Treatment for HS is about restoring balance to the body’s underlying systems, not just symptom control.
But by no means are allopathic methods of HS management redundant. We at EliteAyurveda do not completely switch any patient to our ayurvedic medications, but rather we try to reduce the allopathic medications in a sustained manner to our herbal medications. Also, in cases of emergencies, the allopathic system is unparalleled. We are not here to degrade any system of medicine, but rather to guide the patients to make an educated decision towards a complete treatment system that works best for them.
We at EliteAyurveda provide a comprehensive approach to the management of Hidradenitis Suppurativa, focusing on identifying and addressing the underlying or root cause of the condition while simultaneously enhancing the overall state of well-being. The treatment regimen centres around achieving equilibrium between the Kapha and Pitta doshas, while concurrently facilitating detoxification of the body and promoting the healing of scars.
The treatment plan involves a blend of our Herbal Ayurveda internal medications, external applications, and lifestyle adjustments that are customised to suit the specific Prakruti (constitution) and Vikruti (imbalance) of each individual.
Revealing a Common Myth about a Possible Cure for HS.
This misapprehension likely originated due to numerous individuals incorrectly confusing HS with other dermatological conditions and implementing ineffective remedies, subsequently arriving at an incorrect conclusion that it is untreatable.
Whether HS is ignored or misdiagnosed, the inability to appropriately diagnose this chronic inflammatory skin illness produces a cascade of problems.
At EliteAyurveda our treatment for HS has always focused to eradicate the root-cause responsible for the exaggerated immune response, while simultaneously minimising inflammation, alleviating pain arising from nodules and lowering the frequency and severity of flare-ups.
“One of the most common misconceptions concerning HS is that there isn’t much that can be done about it,.. which is entirely false” according to Dr Adil Moulanchikkal, Lead Ayurveda Skin Specialist, EliteAyurveda Services.
Our Approach: Rediscovering Inner Health with Ayurveda
Addressing the Root Cause: Our Ayurveda treatment delves deep into the root causes of diabetes, which can vary widely among individuals. We consider factors like diet, lifestyle, stress, genetics, prakriti and dosha (constitution) imbalances. By identifying these underlying issues, we can develop a comprehensive plan that includes:
Personalized Vedic Diet: Tailored nutrition plans that promote overall balance and blood sugar regulation
Proprietary herbal medications: Ayurvedic herbs and supplements that target specific imbalances and support metabolic health
Detoxification: Ayurvedic detoxification therapies are recommended to eliminate toxins from the body.
Lifestyle Adjustments: Lifestyle adjustments based on an individual’s constitution (Prakriti) and the current imbalances (Vikriti) are also recommended. Maintaining good hygiene, wearing loose-fitting clothing, and avoiding excessive sweating or friction in affected areas are all important considerations.
Regular Follow-Up: Ongoing consultations and adjustments to the treatment plan as the individual progresses on their journey to reversal
At Elite Ayurveda, our renowned Ayurvedic approach revolves around tailored treatments that delve deep into the underlying causes of the disease thereby resulting in remission, rather than merely providing relief for symptoms. Personalised treatments tailored to an individual’s unique “prakruti” are essential in providing comprehensive care. Our exclusive Ayurvedic herbal formulations, customised for each patient, are recommended instead of readily available over-the-counter medications. All of our medications are carefully prepared in-house, resulting in the effectiveness of the administered herbs. Due to this, we are able to show better & sustained results.
From the Doctor’s Desk:
- The optimal treatment for you should improve your overall health rather than burden it with additional adverse effects.
- The treatment under consideration should provide results and increase overall well-being within a reasonable time of treatment initiation.
- The recurrence rate should be low. Or the remission period should be properly maintained.
- The overall expense of treatment should not be prohibitively expensive.
- The treatment should not only cure the symptoms of the sickness but also the underlying cause of the condition in the first place.
- The appropriate treatment will assist you in discovering true health by utilizing a unified approach to restoring the body and mind to their natural state.
