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 saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • 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.

  • 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. 🙏
