Eosinophilic Esophagitis is a chronic disorder of the immune system that has identical symptoms to GERD. It happens when the white blood cells known as eosinophils are build up in the esophagus. These white blood cells stay in the digestive tract and an allergic reaction usually makes the white blood cells move into the esophagus which causes inflammation.
Symptoms of Eosinophilic Esophagitis
- Dysphagia or difficulty in swallowing
- Food gets stuck in the esophagus
- Chest pain
- Upper abdominal pain
- Vomiting and failure to thrive in children
Eosinophilic Esophagitis – According to Ayurveda
According to Ayurveda, vitiated Pitta dosha is responsible for producing too many eosinophils, which results in chronic inflammation.
In Ayurveda, an important disease preventive concept has been described which is known as “Satmya”.
Certain factors that are responsible for triggering the over-production of eosinophils are:
- Excessive intake of sour or hot preparations in the diet.
- Sleeping during the daytime
- Exposure to excessive sunlight
- Skin disorders such as dermatitis
