Crohn’s disease, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis are examples of inflammatory disorders.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and thyroid disorders are examples of hormonal illnesses.

Psoriasis, acne, dissecting cellulitis of the scalp (a rare condition characterized by pus-filled lesions), pilonidal cysts (which occur at the tailbone and involve hair and skin debris), and pyoderma gangrenosum (which causes painful ulcers on the skin) are all examples of skin diseases.

Depression, anxiety, poor sexual health, and social isolation are all examples of psychological diseases.

Treating  Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)

According to Ayurveda, hidradenitis suppurativa is a cause of Kapha and Pitta dosha. When the digestive fire (Agni), or Pitta, is out of balance, the Kapha Dosha becomes vitiated, which slows down metabolism. Due to the disruption of fat molecules, they start to build up in muscles and impede bodily passageways, causing painful, swollen sores in the groin, buttocks, thighs, and armpits.

In Ayurveda, hidradenitis suppurativa Treatment is to restore the body’s natural equilibrium by detoxifying it with potent herbal therapies.

Conventional Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) treatment methods 

Patients with Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) may find relief through conventional therapy, however it is crucial to note that these treatments are not without risk. 

Strong drugs, such as antibiotics, immunosuppressants, and biologics, can cause adverse effects and chronic problems. These drugs frequently disrupt the immune system’s normal function, weakening the body’s defenses against illness. Furthermore, several traditional medications may necessitate long-term administration, which can lead to dependence and the development of antibiotic resistance. 

Consumers should assess the benefits and drawbacks of typical allopathic Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) remedies and consult with medical doctors before making any decisions about their care.

How do we keep a patient in remission for so long… 

Our first step is to treat the underlying core cause or triggers that led to the sickness in the first place…

The second stage is to regulate the body’s response to our drugs and lifestyle changes… As a result, you will be cured.

Our third step is to keep you motivated to follow through with our lifestyle modifications, and in some cases, we may prescribe preventive medicines… to help you stay in remission. 

This ensures that when you come to us for therapy, we are concerned with long-term treatment and remission from the condition rather than the catch-all phrase “reversing Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS).”
