Retinitis Pigmentosa Ayurvedic Treatment

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a genetic disease. This is a condition that affects the retina’s ability to respond to light. This disease leads to progressive vision loss. Traditional medicine offers limited solutions to the RP. But Ayurvedic therapy is an alternative to a good solution. In Ayurveda, they were treated using natural and holistic methods.

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine. Ayurveda emphasizes balance and harmony within the body. According to Ayurvedic principles, in particular, an imbalance in the Pitta dosha affects the eyes. There are several types of treatment in Ayurveda for RP. They include 'diet', 'lifestyle changes', 'herbal remedies' and 'special treatments'.

RP is a genetic disease from birth whose symptoms usually begin in childhood and most people eventually lose most of their vision. There is no cure for RP. But vision aids and rehabilitation (training) programs can help people with RP make the most of their vision. Affecting 1 in 4,000 people worldwide, RP is one of the most common forms of inherited retinal diseases.

RP is characterized by progressive degeneration of photoreceptor cells (rods and cones) in the retina. Rod cells are usually affected first, leading to night blindness, followed by cone cell degeneration, leading to further vision loss.
