Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF CELIAC DISEASE BY ALTERNATIVE THERAPY: A CASE STUDY

*Dr. Pratyush Kumar, Dr. Shrawan Kumar Sahu, Dr. Dheeraj Tyagi and Dr. Vijay Kumar

ABSTRACT

Celiac disease (CD) is one of the most common diseases, resulting from both environmental (gluten) and genetic factors [human leukocyte antigen (HLA) and non-HLA genes]. The prevalence of CD has been estimated to approximate 0.5%-1% in different parts of the world. Currently, the only treatment available for CD individuals is a strict life-long gluten- free diet (GFD). Consumption of GFD is not only cumbersome, but it is usually more expensive and harder also to find than common gluten-containing foods. Although hydrolysis of toxic gliadin peptide, prevention of toxic gliadin peptide absorption, blockage of selective deamidation of specific glutamine residues by tissue, restoration of immune tolerance towards gluten, modulation of immune response to dietary gliadin, and restoration of intestinal architecture may be taken as future treatment modalities, but its fruitfulness cannot be ascertained. The acceptance of traditional, alternative and complementary systems of medicine has been increasing exponentially after it was addressed by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) at Alma Ata in 1978. Keeping these very facts into consideration, this case study was conducted to introduce a better management of the disorder. It comprises of three purification procedures of Alternative therapy namely Shankh Prakshalan, Kunjal Kriya and Yog vasti followed by Ayurvedic medicines viz. Haritaki Churna, Arogyavardhini Vati, Avipattikar Churna, Kamdudha Rasa and Prawal Panchamrit Ras. After two months of the therapy, the patient was in a position to eat gluten-diet without any problem, which was confirmed by her TTG value (0.50U/mL).

Keywords: Celiac disease, alternative therapy, Shankh Prakshalan, Kunjal Kriya, Yog vasti, Prawal Panchamrit Ras.
