Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects different organs, particularly the lungs. It is also often seen in the eyes, skin and lymphatic system. Small groups of inflammatory cells accumulate as granulomas, lump-like structures, in various areas of the body. The abnormal groups of sarcoid granulomas are not cancerous, but if not treated properly Sarcoidosis can lead to organ damage.
To treat Sarcoidosis, Ayurveda suggests improving the immune system by increasing the intake of immunity boosting herbs. Herbs and formulations to improve inflammation and immunity for the condition include Ashwagandha, Neem, Punarnava, and Kanchanara Guggulu, to name a few.
In addition to herbs, an anti-inflammatory diet is highly recommended for patients suffering from Sarcoidosis. A diet chart is provided which includes green, leafy vegetables, foods with bitter and astringent tastes in particular. Reducing the intake of all caffeine and alcohol, fried foods, refraining from excessive spice and following a sattvic diet will assist in treating Sarcoidosis.
In addition to Ayurvedic herbs and diet chart recommendations, Sarcoidosis symptoms can be improved with lifestyle alterations. Developing a consistent practice of yoga, pranayama and meditation are suggested, as well as a daily routine. Because Sarcoidosis often affects the lungs and individuals may be prone to shortness of breath, it is important to discuss which breathing techniques are most suitable with the doctors at Jiva.
Chest-opening Yoga Asana practice will assist in supporting the lungs. These postures include the cobra pose, Bhujangasana, and fish pose, Matsyasana.
