Effectively Heal Erythema Nodosum

Why EliteAyurveda

How are we able to Treat Erythema Nodosum

Erythema nodosum is a form of inflammatory skin condition that affects the fatty layer of the skin. Erythema nodosum causes reddish, itchy, painful lumps in the front of the legs, usually below the knees. Erythema nodosum is characterized by sore lumps, or nodules, that range in size from a dime to a quarter. They may remain inflamed on and off for weeks, then decrease and flatten, giving them a bruised look.

The condition Erythema Nodosum is classified as a shotha in Ayurveda (inflammation). The relevance of Vata and Pitta is kept in mind. Pitta shamak is used to calm the daha, lalima, and ushma, among other things. Redness, pain, swelling, and warmth are all symptoms of inflammation. The Vata and Pitta doshas are represented by these four characters. Because the condition affects the fatty tissue, Kapha dosha management is not disturbed. Blood purifiers that assist with seborrheic skin and pimples can also help with Erythema Nodosum.

Acharya Charaka in Charaka Samhita, Sutra Sthana, 20/11, mentions:

"Pitta-vata prakopascha, twak-vikarasya karanam" - The aggravation of Pitta and Vata doshas is the cause of skin disorders.

This shloka explains that conditions like Erythema Nodosum are related to dosha imbalances and can be managed by pacifying these doshas.

Erythema Nodosum Treatment, Naturally -

No Over-The-Counter Medication. Unique Customised Proprietary Herbal Medicines

Root Cause Treatment

“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”

Wisdom of Ayurveda

“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”

More Than Just Medicines

"Heal your body naturally with 5000-year-old knowledge of Ayurveda and Modern Science. From its authenticity, structured approach and personalisation play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended."
