Ayurvedic Remedies for Cellulitis: A Comprehensive Guide to Natural Healing



Cellulitis is a common skin condition, caused due to bacterial infection. It usually appears as a red, and swollen area of the skin that is tender to touch and feels warm.


Cellulitis can be extremely painful and has a tendency to spread rapidly.


Though cellulitis can affect the skin of any part of the body, it usually affects the legs. In mild cases, it causes symptoms affecting only the surface of the skin. However, as the condition progresses, it may spread to the underlying tissues of the skin. If the infection is not controlled properly, it can spread to the lymph nodes and blood and cause life-threatening consequences due to the exudation of fluids and the resultant edema. It is very important to seek appropriate medical attention at right time.



Pain Relief For Cellulitis with Ayurvedic Herbal Remedies



Ayurveda may be able to offer support in releving pain and fighting with infection by ayurveda's traditional detox program panchakarma detox and offering internal as well as external  application of herbs to reduce swelling and pain. These herbs have been used traditionally for cellulitis type of conditions.



The pain caused due to cellulitis is usually intense. Pain relief for cellulitis can be achieved by using natural herbs having analgesic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. The modern system of medicine treats this disease with the use of antibiotics that help to destroy the bacteria. It is important to continue taking these antibiotics for the recommended duration even after the symptoms have completely subsided to ensure complete recovery and prevent microbial resistance.


Patients may also take an appropriate cellulitis treatment at home by ensuring proper rest is given to the affected part and it is protected from superadded infections.


Natural Remedies For Cellulitis With Ayurveda Herbs 


The natural remedies for cellulitis given below can help in the management of this condition by producing a range of medicinal actions including an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antioxidant effect.


Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa): Punarnava acts as an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. It is also considered one of the best home remedies for swollen feet and ankles as it has the ability to eliminate excess fluids from the body through urination. It also helps to reduce the discharge from the affected part and prevents blister formation.


Gokshura (Tribulus terrestris): Gokshura acts as a natural analgesic agent and helps to reduce pain caused due to cellulitis. It also helps in destroying bacteria responsible for the infection by producing a powerful antibacterial action. It is considered one of the best natural diuretics for edema treatment and hence, is recommended for the patients who have developed swelling in the feet due to cellulitis.


The same research (mentioned above) highlights the uses of gokshura that acts as a natural analgesic agent and reduces pain caused due to cellulitis. It also helps in destroying bacteria responsible for the infection by producing a powerful antibacterial action.


Varun (Crataeva religiosa): Varun is particularly beneficial in the cases when there is an excessive blister formation or an abscess. The anti-diuretic action of this herb helps to get rid of edema and swelling in the feet. It aims to increase the secretion of urine in the kidneys and thus, helps to get rid of the excess fluids accumulated due to cellulitis.


Shilajit (mineral pitch): Shilajit is revered for its rejuvenative properties. It helps in the faster repair of the affected skin tissues by stimulating the regeneration of the cells. It also acts as a mild diuretic agent and provides natural treatment for edema legs. It also helps to clear the infection by producing an antibacterial action. Regular use of this herb is recommended to prevent the recurrent attacks of cellulitis.


Triphala: Triphala provides relief from pain, redness and swelling caused due to cellulitis. It is a combination of three herbs, which are known as the natural fluid retention remedies. Triphala can help to reduce edema in the affected tissues and feet by preventing retention of excess water.


In a research paper presented by Dr Santosh Kumar Shaw et al mentions the uses of triphala. In a case study a 19 years old female patient was diagnosed with preseptal cellulitis on clinical presentation and was advised bidalaka with triphala powder and yastimadhu powder for five days. The signs and symptoms got completely subsided. The results proved to be significant on the basis of clinical assessment.


In another research presented by Dr Faizan Javed et al on the herbal treatments available in Ayurveda for cellulitis also mentions the uses of triphala. According to this research paper Triphala provides relief from pain, redness and swelling caused due to cellulitis. It is a combination of three herbs viz. Amalaki, Haritaki and Bibhitaki, which are known as the natural fluid retention remedies. Triphala can help to reduce edema in the affected tissues and feet by preventing retention of excess water.


Natural Care For Cellulitis


Ayurveda recommends the use of herbs for the natural management for cellulitis. According to the ayurvedic concept of Tridosha, this disease occurs as a result of the vitiation of all the three doshas, with pitta dosha being the dominant one. Hence, the edema natural cures are directed towards maintaining the balance in the doshas. The treatment involves the use of herbs, which have the ability to destroy the bacteria and protect the tissues against further damage. The natural remedies for swollen feet also help to control the symptoms of this disease by preventing an excessive exudation of the discharge from the affected part of the skin.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

    Ashe Davenport

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues
