A Potential Role of Ayurvedic Treatment in Tuberculosis

Surbhi Gupta, Savita Kumari


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), tuberculosis (TB) is one of the top ten
causes of death worldwide and verified as a global health problem. The main reason of global
health problem is generally the tremendous burden of disease. In the estimated survey of TB in
2016, 10.4 million people suffered with TB and 1.7 million died with this disease. After a long
period of neglect some new interventions are developed by various studies which targets the
transmission process i.e., interrupts the transmission of TB among the population. Nowadays,
various synthetic drug regimens are followed but the drugs which are scheduled in this regimen
have some side effects. However, to avoid these side effects some natural herbs such as
Ayurvedic treatment are used for beneficial treatment. The choice of beneficial treatment mainly
depends on the severity, age and extent of disease. In this review, we are discussing about the
recent natural and synthetic drug regimen used to treat active disease conditions.
