Everything About Retinitis Pigmentosa & its Treatment

Retinitis Pigmentosa is a genetic degenerative disease. It is an incurable disease that can only be slowed with treatment and therapies. The Ayurvedic treatment for Retinitis Pigmentosa focuses on relieving the symptoms of this disease and slowing down its progress.

What is Retinitis Pigmentosa?

Retinitis Pigmentosa(RP) is a genetic eye disease that generally runs in families. Retinitis Pigmentosa causes progressive loss of vision initially in dim light by affecting the rod cells and later on in day vision also due to involvement of the cone cells. The patient loses eyesight slowly and may even lead to complete blindness.

Retinitis Pigmentosa cure in Ayurveda focuses on slowing down the progress of this disease.

Causes of Retinitis Pigmentosa Disease

The severity of the disease and speed of vision loss varies from person to person, depending on its genetic type. It is one of the most common diseases caused by congenital abnormalities.

The parents' consanguineous marriage is a causative factor for many genetic diseases, including retinitis pigmentosa. The exact causes are not fully understood, and there can be many possibilities to cause congenital abnormalities.

What are the Symptoms of Retinitis Pigmentosa?

  1. Following are the symptoms of Retinitis Pigmentosa:
  2. Difficulty seeing in dim light is the most common symptom in the initial stages
  3. Tunnel vision
  4. Loss of color vision and central vision
  5. Difficulty to face the bright light
  6. And ultimately blindness is the final stage in the advanced stage of RP

Complications in Retinitis Pigmentosa Disease

It is not possible to cure retinitis pigmentosa permanently with the help of any treatment. Since it is a progressive disease, treatments are done to prevent further degeneration of vision. The Retinitis Pigmentosa ayurvedic treatment works on the same line.

According to Ayurveda, the initial Dosha imbalance starts with Kapha. Later on, all three doshas get vitiated. The Pitta vitiation reduces the vision, and imbalanced Kapha blocks the channels, and the imbalance of Vata disturbs the neurological control. Here, the doshas' disturbance is genetic and not because of the disturbing food and lifestyle habits.

But this disturbance of the dosha vitiation increases if a disturbed lifestyle supports it. Hence the lifestyle and food habits have to be in a state of complete balance not to accelerate the disease.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa Treatment in Ayurveda works at two stages. The first stage involves the purificatory therapies that include Virechan, Nasya, Snehpana, Shirodhara, Netradhara, and Tharpana. The second stage consists of rejuvenating Rasayana medicines to maintain the strength of the retina and optic nerves.

The patient has to repeat both stages of treatment at regular intervals. The patient requires a twenty-one-day Panchakarma session once in 6 months or once a year, depending on the patient's condition. It is a widely accepted Retinitis Pigmentosa treatment in India.

Retinitis Pigmentosa Diet Chart & Lifestyle

A healthy and balanced lifestyle and Yoga help support the treatment and prevent the speed of degeneration.

Smoking, alcohol, fast food, exposure to bright and glaring lights, and electronic screens like tv, mobile phone, and the computer will harm the eyes. A patient with RP should avoid using these things.

Why To Choose Ayurveda?

Looks for the Root Cause

The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. Ayurveda offers two ways of treatment; One is Shodhan, and the other is Shaman. Shodhan is complete detoxification of the body by Panchakarma therapies. Shaman is balancing the doshas by Ayurveda medicines, diet, and lifestyle changes. Ayurveda medicines always work better in a patient detoxified with Panchakarma.

Safe Medicines

Ayurveda medicines are processed most naturally and not in the synthetic and chemical form. For this reason, the herbs are soft on the body, and there is no risk of side effects even if the patient requires to take them for longer durations. The complete eradication of the root cause ensures the cure and prevents future health complications.

Holistic Approach

Ayurveda is not merely a medical science. Instead, it is a philosophical science too. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment. Ayurveda gives importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease. Two patients of the same disease can have different treatments because of the difference in their body constitution.
