6 things to do when you have meningitis

An aggravated kapha and pitta leads to a dangerous brain fever known as Meningitis. Employ these ayurvedic home remedies alongside traditional allopathic treatment to avoid complications.


  • Meningitis is caused by an aggravated kapha and pitta.

  • The disease is fast moving and you should take measures against it immediately

  • Have an herbal tonic to strengthen the brain so that it’s able to fight off the disease

Meningitis refers to an intense fever that happens when the Meninges, a membrane covering the brain and spine, gets inflamed. The Ayurvedic perspective on this disease says that the inflammation in the brain occurs due to a kapha aggravation, while an aggravated pitta is responsible for the accompanying fever.

There are a number of symptoms that can be seen when one is suffering from Meningitis, such as a high fever, a cramped neck and intense headache, vomiting, and in some cases, seizures. Given the dangerous and fast-moving nature of this disease, it is recommended that you employ both Ayurvedic remedies and Western medicine in tandem with one another so that they are able to complement one another. Ensure you consult both an Allopathic and Ayurvedic doctor.
