Cellulitis Natural Ayurvedic Treatment and Management

Author : Gurnam Saini  

cellulitis edema natural ayurvedic treatment melbourne


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 consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • 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.

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

  • I’m very happy with the treatment and medication given by Dr. Saini to heal De Quervain tensosynovitis. Pain was really too bad , I couldn’t stretch my thumb or move my wrist. On my third and final day of treatment I completely forgot I had an injury on my wrist because after the second treatment I had zero pain. Thank you so much Dr.Saini.

  • 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.

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
