I first got to know about hereditary angioneurotic edema some 44 years back when I was only 20 years old! Since then, I am living with this condition. Antihistamines or corticosteroids don't help, instead these drugs have very serious side effects.So, I gradually stopped taking these drugs &switched to Ayurveda & also monitored my food intake very carefully. I stopped taking eggs, all types of nuts, chocolates, sea-food, prawns, mushrooms & brinjal.I switched mainly to vegetarian food.I made sure that my protein intake is just right for my body. For instance, I take only a piece of chicken or pulses( dal ) as a daily dose of protein. Other food items are mainly protein free for me. All this has helped me a lot to manage my angioedema. This apart, when I get this condition, I take an ayurvedic medicine called " HARIDRA KHAND- BRIHAT" , 4 teaspoonful a day & it's very effective in controlling edema in my body & I am back to normal in day or two! The composition of Haridra Khand is as follows(each 10 G contains):- Mixture of Haridra, Trivrt, Haritaki-616.57 mg, Mixture of Daruharidra, Musta, Yavani, Ajamoda, Chitraka, , katuka, Jiraka, Pippali, Sunthi, Suksmaila, Tvak, Tejapatra, Vidanga, Vasa, Guduchi, kustha, Amaloki, Bibhitaki, Dhanyaka, Loha Bhasma, Abhraka bhasma-19.26mg Sarkara-7.70mg.
