Tick Borne Encephalitis Treatment in Ayurveda


Tick borne encephalitis is a virus infection that involves the central nervous system of the human body. It is most commonly found in Europe and Asia. Tick borne encephalitis has posed a public threat from the last few decades because of poor etiology, incomplete recovery and increasing incidences.

Tick Borne Encephalitis

Introduction- What Is Tick Borne Encephalitis?

Tick borne encephalitis is a viral infection involving the central nervous system of the human body. Tick borne encephalitis virus causes the inflammation of meninges and the brain. This disease often results in meningitis, encephalitis or paralysis. The infection results from an infected tick which gets stuck firmly to the skin. It is caused by Far-Eastern, European and Siberian subtypes of tick borne encephalitis virus.


Tick borne encephalitis fever is caused by the tick borne encephalitis virus. This virus is usually present in infected animals and their raw products. This virus transmits through

  • Consumption of infected raw milk from goats and cows

Although there is no medication available to treat tick borne encephalitis, Vaccination remains as the most reliable solution to prevent the tick borne encephalitis. Other supportive treatment options include

Ayurveda Perspective of Tick-Borne Encephalitis

Although Ayurveda has no direct mention of tick borne encephalitis, it does mention various kinds of Jwara in ayurveda. If we go deeper in the concept of Jwara, We can correlate it with Vatja-Pittaja Jwara mentioned in Ayurveda. The most common manifesting symptoms of Vataja-Pittaja Jwara are headache, burning sensation, dryness and anorexia. Ayurveda mentions various herbs that help in the treatment of encephalitis. Ashwagandha, Brahmi, Curcumin, manjistha are some of the herbs that are mentioned in Ayurveda. Foremost treatment in Ayurveda for any kind of Jwara is Langhana or fasting. Ayurveda believes that fasting helps in balancing the vitiated doshas and naturally helps the body to fight with the disease causing organisms.
