Chaudhary Shikha*, Rani Jyoti, Agrawal V. D. and Yadava R. K.

ABSTRACT

Interstitial Lung Diseases(ILD) are a group of diffuse parenchymal lung disorders, most of which causes progressive scarring of lung tissue associated with substantial morbidity and mortality as the scarring in ILD eventually affects the ability to breathe and get enough oxygen into one’s blood- stream. Prolonged ILD may result in pulmonary fibrosis. As there is no definite treatment for the disease, it has remained a great problem for the patients. Several conventional treatment modalities are in existence but not much comprehensive. Though the permanent cure for the disease is not available but Ayurveda can provide cost-effective and conveniently the better treatment which relieves the symptoms to a good extent and improves the quality of life of the diseased. In this article, a case study presented on a case of ILD. A 55 years old female, diagnosed case of ILD, attended Kayachikita OPD (Outpatient Department), unit Respiratory disease at All India institute of Ayurveda with chief complaint of breathlessness since feb.2017. Patient got admitted in IPD (Indoor Pa- tient Department) ward and treated on the Ayurvedic principles. At the time of discharge, symp- tomatic relief was found in Breathlessness, and in ESR (Erythrocyte sedimentation Rate) but no significant changes in XRay Chest was observed after treatment.

Keywords: Interstitial lung disease, Ayurveda, Pippali Kalp Chikitsa, Rasayana.
