Cervical erosion from the point of view of Ayurveda
Cervical erosion is a condition in which cells inside the cervix develop outside it and form a red, inflamed patch. It occurs when glandular cells start to grow on the outside of the cervix. That means columnar epithelium replaces the squamous epithelium of the cervix. The symptoms of cervical erosion are excessive vaginal discharge, itching, dyspareunia, and low backache.
Cervical erosion is a common gynecological problem that mostly occurs in women of reproductive age. The most common cause of a cervical erosion is hormonal changes. Women who are taking oral contraceptives often have cervical erosion. Cervical erosion is also very common during pregnancy.
In Ayurveda, cervical erosion is called “Karnini Yonivyapad”. According to Ayurveda, Karnini Yonivyapad is a disease caused by vitiation of Vata and Kapha doshas and Rakta dhatu.
How Ayurvedic doctors treat cervical erosion
The treatment of cervical erosion should be based on a healthy and nutritious diet, healthy lifestyle and medicines pacifying Vata and Kapha doshas along with shothhar and raktashodhak properties.
Karnini Yonivyapad is usually treated with a combination of topical therapy and oral medications that have anti-inflammatory properties. Orally, the patient is administered Karpasa mula churna, triphala churna and Nimba Patra Kashaya, followed by the application of oils.
The necessary procedures and medications are determined by an Ayurvedic doctor during the online consultation.
