What is Deep vein thrombosis Ayurvedic treatment


Deep vein thrombosis is a serious condition where a blood clot is formed in one or more of the deep veins in the body, usually in the legs. It may develop if there is a certain medical condition that affect blood clotting process for e.g. some genetic blood diseases.

Leg pain or swelling is generally first symptoms of DVT but sometimes it may occur without any symptoms. DVT is a fatal condition because blood clots in the veins can break out and move through the blood and get lodged into lungs blocking blood flow to that part. 1

The condition does not find a specific mention in Ayurveda, however, the causes, signs and symptoms of DVT resemble various conditions. One of them is siragata vata in which there is pain in the region of sira (artery/vein) along with narrowing or obstruction in the cavity of sira. Another condition called raktaavritta vata has been described with symptoms of pricking pain, excessive pain (hyperaesthesia) and numbness of the area affected. The causes for this disease are manifold such as prolonged sedentary lifestyle (achankramansheelinam), trauma (abhighata), obesity (sthulata) etc.2
