Urticaria or hives occurs as a part of reactivity of the immune system marked by excessive histamine secretion, redness, and severe itching. But the cause of urticaria is multifactorial. Some urticarial responses start from cold (cold urticaria) heat (solar urticaria) friction urticaria (from rubbing while seated) contact with certain metals (while wearing watches). It also develops during viral infections, otitis media, in a broad disease Association of hives.

In ancient Ayurvedic classics, urticaria is described into two categories:  

Udarda where itching is dominant with Kapha dosha (humour) more morbid and

Shita Pitta where Kapha and Pitta both are morbid with observable redness and dermographism.

Allergies are wrong responses of the body to certain morbidities whether physical or chemical often it is an auto-response. Although autosomal dominant inheritance plays role in allergies, gene-environment interaction counts.

In Pranava Kerala Ayurveda Clinic, we approach hives using its blood purifying and total detoxification approach by medicines for hives. purificatory Panchakarma treatments to clean channels of the body are used. All allergies arise from the hyper response of the body’s immunomodulatory mechanism. Blood purification render intact epithelium and modulated immune system for a remission of symptoms of idiopathic urticaria.

The detoxification of the body drains out poisons that work in the body after infections. Medicines that remain in the body owing to lowered detoxification capacity of the body are excreted. These relieve the strain on the immune system and it functions correctly when the three senses of humor Vata Pitta and Kapha reach equilibrium. Thus escaping the sedative symptom of antihistamine therapy which can only control symptoms. Ayurveda works on the reactive action of the human body, decreasing its toxic load and re-modulating the immune system to provide good excellence of epithelium both external and internal. stabilizing the growth of unfruitful hyper reactions of the immune system.

In Pranava Kerala Ayurveda Clinic treatment modalities for hives are unique and are formulated by the physician as per the multifactorial etiology of hives. But the main emphasis lies in modulating the immune system by every means. Allergic conditions such as hives are a situation in which the human body is incapable to do anything and needs expert medical attention.

In Pranava Kerala Ayurveda Clinic we provide effective treatment for hives. Medicine in the form of decoctions as per the treaties is given as a part of the palliative step this is given for a period of regeneration of the skin.

The second step is the Panchakarma shodhana therapy with external and internal
purification. Internal purification involved highly judicious oleation therapy on controlled soft diet tips and subsequent mild purgation.

External purification involves finding out the tranquility of the mind and skin by Takradhara (medicated buttermilk) and starting anointing oil which is antipruritic.

Detoxified does internally and externally the body’s immune system gets modulated and the long course of chronic urticaria gets relieved.

Oleation therapy is continuous to decoction therapy. As we know the immune system has three types of t-cells which when in modulation maintain the body’s healthy. This is done by fortifying the body with the strategy of recognizing and attacking antigens and destroying them to have remission from the reactive phase. They recognize and attack the strategy of helper T-cells, the controlling reaction of T and B cells is vested in suppressor T-cells when these function well in a non-stimulated environment there is no allergy. when the body has endotoxins, these reactions of the body’s fundamental defence go wrong and the tolerance of the body to recognize the body and its proteins as self-antigens goes blind. Thus a blind and deaf war sets in called idiopathic allergy.

The benefit of oleation and purification vested under the formulating genius of an Ayurvedic physician is that the fatty substances are absorbed into the lymphatic system. so unlike decoction therapy which is water soluble here, the immune system is directly influenced and the tolerance of detoxified body attains result in complete remission of an altered response of the body as in hives.
