Ayurvedic Treatment for Filaria-Filariasis-Elephantiasis


The most accepted and standard method for diagnosing an active infection is by identification of microfilariae by microscopic examination. For this, the blood collection has to be done at night to coincide with the appearance of the microfilariae as the microfilariae are nocturnal, which means that they only circulate in the blood at night.1

Other serologic techniques can provide an alternative to microscopic detection but tests are often negative as lymphedema may develop many years after infection.1

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Fasting /cleansing (langhana) is recommended.
  • Light diet consisting of older jowar, wheat, horse gram, green gram, drum stick, bitter gourd, radish, garlic and older red rice is beneficial.
  • Milk and products, fish, jaggery, sweets and contaminated water must be avoided.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • It is noted that many of these bacterial infections may be prevented with good skin hygiene.1
  • Avoid excessive stress.
  • Elevate and exercise the swollen arm or leg to move the fluid and improve the lymph flow.
