An Indian herbal medicine has been hailed as a miracle cure for severe allergic reactions and for reducing the number of hospitalisations of allergic patients in hospitals.
Herbal cat remedy can treat allergic reaction to milkweed herb and milkweed plants, which are popular in the Himalayas, a country that has witnessed a dramatic increase in the number and severity of severe allergic episodes since it was declared free of pandemic-related coronavirus in 2014.
Herb is said to be effective for relieving symptoms of allergies such as asthma, eczema, rhinitis and hay fever, and in reducing the severity of symptoms and exacerbating the illness.
The Indian Medical Research Council (IMRLC) study of milkweed, a medicinal plant from the Himalayan region, found that its extract can significantly reduce the severity and duration of the symptoms of chronic or acute allergies.
A small study on the treatment of acute allergic reactions in India in the early 2000s had shown that milkweed extract had significant clinical efficacy in relieving milder, but more severe, allergic reactions, said Dr Rakesh Kaul, a professor at the Indian Institute of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad.
He added that a study conducted in India last year showed that a small dose of the herbal medicine was found to be an effective treatment for people with acute or severe allergic diseases, including asthma, hay fever and eczematosis.
Dr Kaul said that the study showed that milkwort extract, extracted from the leaves of milkworts, is an effective natural remedy for the relief of acute and severe allergic symptoms in patients with chronic or severe allergies.
In the US, a US-based nonprofit, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, has also announced its support of the study.””
We recommend that the Indian authorities develop a protocol to implement the use of milkweeds as a natural remedy to treat allergic diseases and to improve the quality of life of patients with allergic diseases.”
In the US, a US-based nonprofit, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, has also announced its support of the study.
“As a leading academic organization, the academy’s mission is to advance the field of allergy research, provide critical information to help educate the public and advance the health and safety of people with allergies,” the academy said in a statement.
“We welcome the Indian team’s efforts to test milkweed as a potential natural remedy and look forward to learning more about this unique and promising medicinal plant.”
The IMRlc study involved the use to a single patient of a single dose of milkwater extract.
In a press release issued on Tuesday, IMRlic said that while the study was small, it provided evidence of a potential use of this plant in the management of acute or chronic allergies.
It noted that it would be the first study to demonstrate the efficacy and safety in treating severe or acute allergic symptoms using milkwollys medicinal herb extract.
“Given the high demand for milkweed in India, the Indian government and its health departments are now making it an attractive and viable treatment option for the people with severe and acute allergic diseases,” the release added.
The study was published in the Journal of Allergology & Clinical Immunology.
