How Does Our Ulcers / Non Healing Wounds Treatment Benefit You?

The ulcers / wounds also known as chronic wounds that do not heal in a predictable amount of time are considered non-healing wounds. Chronic wounds frequently stay too long in the inflammatory stage and may take years or never heal. The wound is usually a sore on the skin or a mucous membrane accompanying the disintegration of tissue. The symptoms are- swelling, redness, discharge, bleeding, and pain in the affected area. <>

In Ayurveda, Chronic ulcers are known as Dushta Vruna. In normal individuals, the natural process tends to heal Vruna and protect them from Dosha Dushti. But in several cases, underlying conditions like Madhumeha (Diabetes) hinder the natural course of wound healing. This is due to vitiation of doshas.

Pitta imbalance- leads to a burning sensation, infection of blood & ulcer wound

Vata imbalance- leads to swelling and pain

Kapha imbalance- leads to accumulation and vitiation of fluids.

Healing these wounds involves balancing all the doshas. Ayurvedic treatment for non-healing wounds involves- Vamana therapy (wounds on the upper body), Virechana therapy (wounds on the lower body), Swedana, Lepa, Upanaha, Abhyanga, Shodhana, Seevana, Kshalana, etc. These therapies are selected based on individuals' conditions. Further, the treatment is accompanied by the intake of herbs like Vacha, Latakaranja, Pippali, Nimba, Sariva, Kalmegha, etc. The entire procedure helps to reverse the condition in a completely natural way.

Stages of developing non-healing wounds

The progression of these non-healing wounds is in stages:

Stage 1- It involves redness of the skin

Stage 2- The symptoms at this stage include pain, friable granulation tissue, foul odor, etc.

Stage 3- Breakdown of wound instead of healing. 

Thus, it is essential to treat such wounds/ lesions as early as possible and avoid further complications and complete deterioration of tissues.

Diabetes and non-healing wounds

Diabetes affects blood circulation and causes blood to move slowly. Thus, wounds heal slowly or do not heal at all. Uncontrolled blood sugar levels might harm the local nerves and numb the area's senses. As a result, individuals with diabetes who suffer injuries to their feet may not be aware of the harm done. It may also affect individuals’ collagen production, healing hormones, and weaken the skin barrier.
Ayurveda terms this condition as ‘Madhumehajanya Vruna’. Amputation of the foot can be avoided, and sugar levels can be managed with skin that has clearly healed. Through Antaha-Parimarjana (internal drugs) and Bahir-Parimarjana (external applications) Chikitsa, Diabetic wounds can be healed. This involves therapies like Swedana, Lepa, Upanaha, Abhyanga, Shodhana, Seevana, etc.

Diabetic ulcers are caused by poor circulation, hyperglycemia, nerve damage, and wounded feet. The causes of diabetic foot ulcers are elaborated below.

  1. Poor blood circulation is a kind of vascular illness in which blood does not flow adequately to your feet. Poor circulation might also make ulcer healing more difficult.
  2. High glucose levels can impede the healing of an infected foot ulcer, so blood sugar control is essential. People with type 2 diabetes and other illnesses sometimes have a more difficult time fending off ulcer infections.
  3. Nerve injury is a long-term impact that might cause numbness in your feet. Nerve damage can cause tingling and discomfort. Damage to the nerves diminishes sensitivity to foot pain and results in painless sores that can lead to ulcers.
  4. Ulcers are distinguished by drainage from the afflicted region and, occasionally, a visible bulge that is not necessarily unpleasant.

Arterial ulcers

Atherosclerotic arteries are a prominent source of arterial ulcers. Ischemic ulcers are another name for them. The arteries are in charge of distributing nutrients and oxygen to various tissues. Clogged arteries restrict the flow of nutrient-rich blood to the extremities. This leaves an open wound. Other causes of arterial ulcers are-

  1. Age
  2. Diabetes
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Smoking
  5. Kidney failure
  6. High cholesterol
  7. Vasculitis
  8. Trauma
  9. Atherosclerosis

Venous ulcers

The most frequent form of leg ulcer is a venous ulcer. They are caused by vein injury. The veins are in charge of transporting blood from various regions of the body to the heart via one-way valves. These valves prevent blood from leaving the heart. Other causes of venous ulcers are-

  1. Varicose veins
  2. Trauma
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Obesity
  5. Blood clotting disorders
  6. Heart failure
  7. Pregnancy
  8. Deep vein thrombosis
  9. Fractures

Pressure ulcers

Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers, are skin and underlying tissue damage caused by continuous pressure on the skin. The causes of pressure ulcers are-

  1. Pressure: Constant pressure applied to any portion of your body might reduce blood flow to tissues. Blood flow is required for oxygen and other nutrients to reach tissues. Skin and adjacent tissues are harmed and may eventually die if these critical nutrients are not present.
  2. Friction: When the skin rubs against clothes or bedding, friction develops. It can make fragile skin more prone to harm, especially if the skin is wet.
  3. Lack of sensory perception: Sensation loss can occur as a result of spinal cord injury, neurological illnesses, and other ailments. Inability to feel pain or discomfort might lead to a failure to recognise warning indications and the need to shift positions.

Vruna Chikitsa

The Vruna Chikitsa is done in three stages:

  • Urdha & Adha Sodhna
  • Visoshanam and Visoshana ahara
  • Sonita mokshana

In order to prevent prameha upadravas from becoming incurable, they must be appropriately controlled using sodhana procedures. Furthermore, the purification of blood by raktamokshana is added to aid the recovery process. Jalaukavacharana therapy (leech therapy) is also employed to enhance tissue oxygenation, which is a prerequisite for the wound healing process.

The entire treatment enhances the regeneration of new blood vessels by circulating pure blood to the affected skin. Thus, the Raktha sodhana concept of Ayurveda, particularly the Jalukavacharana, offers a practical, accessible strategy for the healing of wounds that has the effect of restoring microcirculation.

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.”
