Severe Combined Immunodeficiency?- Causes Symptoms & Treatment In Ayurveda


Primary immunodeficiency” means that it is a disease caused by the genetics of the immune system. Combined immunodeficiency syndromes are a group of different diseases caused by disturbances in the growth and function of T (Cellular immunity) and B (humoral immunity) cells, which may also include natural killer cells. When the immune system combination causes premature death (usually in the first year of life) from a serious infection, it is said to be “severe.” SCID can be arranged as typical SCID or on the other hand, assuming less serious, flawed SCID in light of the seriousness of cellular cell qualitative and quantitative lack. We will discuss pathogenesis, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment according to allopathy, Ayurvedic overview of SCID- Oja doshas, ojahksaya, and Herbal remedies offered by Planet Ayurveda.


It is an uncommon condition made by hereditary transformations that leads to modification in capability and improvement of immune cells. Babies with serious joined immunodeficiency look healthy at the hour of birth yet are very vulnerable to serious contaminations. This is a lethal condition until or except if babies get treatment for immune restoration like enzyme therapy and gene therapy.


SCID is a disease brought about by changes in a few qualities whose parts are significant for the turn of events and capability of T and B cells and can influence normal executioner cells. Now and again, sub-atomic deformities inactivate Immune system microorganisms, while B cells are significant. Despite this, Lymphocyte brokenness seriously obstructs compelling resistance since B cells need signals from Immune system microorganisms to create antibodies.

Ayurvedic Overview

In Ayurveda, we can associate this disease with anuvanshik vyadhi (genetic disease) and other ojahksaya (weak immune system). Anuvanshik vyadhi is formed at birth due to beej dosha (malformation of sperm and egg) deformity. Oja means to prevent disease or to prevent disease in two ways: one is to reduce the disease that occurs, and the other is to prevent the occurrence of the disease. The main factors that contribute to oja (immunity) are three principal doshas, balanced dhatu state, normal agni, the patency of srotas etc. It is what supports the state of all physiological parameters. Ojas is the essence of rasadhi dhatus, also known as Bala (strength).

Ojovaha Srotodusti Lakshana/ Trayo Ojodosha

त्रयो दोषा बलस्योक्ता व्यापद्वि स्रंसनक्षयाः । (सु.सू  १५ /३०)

There are three kinds of ojodosha.

  1. Ojo Visramsa- Displacement from its natural place.
  2. Ojo Vyapat- Ojas get vitiated by dosha and dusya.
  3. Ojahksaya- Decrease in its quantity.

Hetu (Etiological Factors) Of Oja Kshaya

अभिघातात् क्षयात् कोपाच्छोकाद्धयानाच्छ्र मात् क्षुधः

ओजः सड्.क्षीयते ह्योभ्यो धातु ग्रहणनिः सृतम् ।

तेजः समीरितं तस्माद्विस्त्रंसयति देहिनः ।। (सु.सू  १५ /२८)

Trauma or injury, tissue depletion (dhatuksaya), anger, sadness, anxiety, fatigue, hunger, etc. For reasons Ojas decreases, causing dhatus to flow out and affect tejas, and provoked by Vata, causing many disturbances in the body.

Clinical Features Of Ojahksaya

मूर्च्छा मांसक्षयो मोह: प्रलापोऽज्ञानमेव च ।

पूर्वोक्तानि च लिङ्गानी मरणं च बलक्षये ।। (सु.सू  १५ /३२)

  1. Fainting
  2. Depletion of muscles
  3. Unconsciousness
  4. Delirium
  5. Improper perception of knowledge
  6. Death

Prognosis Of Oja And Bala Abnormalities/h3>

तत्र विस्त्रंसे व्यापन्ने च क्रियाविशेषैरविरुद्धैैर्बलमाप्याययेत् ।

इतरं तु मूढसंज्ञं  वर्जयेत् ।। (सु.सू  १५ /३३ )

Ojo visramsa and vyapat can be treated by taking drugs that are not different. Ojaksaya is an incurable disease as it is caused by improper understanding.
