Stages of Retinitis pigmentosa in Ayurveda

According to ayurvedic theory, this condition happens in three stages.

Stage of Kapha Predominance – Kapha vidaghdha drishti

In this stage, the predominant dosha is Kapha and the main symptom is night blindness. The treatment focuses on Kapha sodhana. If treated otherwise, the patient ends in a dangerous situation.

Stage of pitta-predominance with Kapha anubandha

Here, other visual symptoms starts. Pitta also comes into the picture. A decrease in vision, decrease in the visual field, colour blindness, etc. will be the main symptoms. The patient undergoes pitta-samana treatment at this stage. According to the prakriti of the patient, and his habits, the treatment schedule may vary. Habits of the bath, oil application, sleep, journey, etc get rearranged. This is to support the treatment.

Stage of tridosha predominance

In this stage, vata also gets vitiated. We see the symptoms of all the three doshas. would be a considerable decrease in the inability to see, color blindness, and also field loss. The patient will be in a stage where he cannot move freely. Only the central vision will be persisting in most cases. Here, Rasayana therapy should be the line of treatment. Vata-pitta samana, Rasayana, and chakshushya treatments are advised. Lifelong medications and treatments are necessary to prevent blindness once the disease has attained this stage.

Systematic ayurvedic cure for Retinitis Pigmentosa

The disease has long but slow progress. If not handled in time by an experienced hand, it is capable of leading to blindness. Degeneration of the retinal cells, especially the rod photoreceptors is the primary change. Later, the cone photoreceptors also get involved.

In most cases, night blindness will be the initial symptom. Later, there will be a decrease in the peripheral visual field. Also, the patient becomes the victim of colour blindness. In some cases, the central vision may persist until the last stage of the disease.
