Disease Conditions

Churg Strauss Syndrome and role of Homeopathic treatment


It is characterized by hyper eosinophilia with tissue infiltration and vasculitis’s. Churg-Strauss syndrome, an uncommon disorder, affects males and females equally. The disease can occur at any age, but it's more commonly diagnosed in middle-aged people. It causes inflammation in blood vessels, which restricts blood flow to various organs.


It is an autoimmune reaction, where white blood cells, which normally protect us from unwanted bacteria, viruses and allergens, attack healthy tissue, causing inflammation.

Signs and Symptoms:

There are three stages of Churg-Strauss syndrome:

Allergic: This is usually being the first phase (prodromal) of Churg-Strauss syndrome.

Allergic rhinitis: This affects the mucous membranes of your nose, causing runny nose, sneezing and itching.

Hyper-eosinophilia: In this phase of Churg-Strauss syndrome, your body produces abnormally high numbers of eosinophils.

During this phase, the signs and symptoms may worsen or improve.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Cough
  • Pulmonary involvement: Dyspnea, alveolar hemorrhage or pleurisy and with non-specific pulmonary infiltrates on chest radiography. Asthma precedes development of vasculitis often associated with non-specific symptoms
  • Cardiac involvement is a late manifestation
  • Gastrointestinal: Pain, diarrhea and ascites
  • Systemic Vasculitis: With treatment in an earlier stage, you may not progress to this stage. The vasculitis commonly affects blood vessels in your skin, heart, lungs, central nervous system, musculoskeletal system, and gastrointestinal tract. It can also affect your kidneys. Signs and symptoms depend on which organs are affected.


There are no specific tests that confirm Churg-Strauss syndrome. A detail medical history and general physical examination is carried out by your doctor and following tests are advised.

  • Blood test: C.B.C, E.S.R: It shows leukocytosis, thrombocytosis, normocytic, norm chromic anemia, raised E.S. R. and CRP. Antineutrophil cytoplasmic auto antibodies (ANCAs) appear in the blood of many people with Churg-Strauss syndrome
  • Eosinophilia and elevated IgE levels are seen
  • Urinalysis
  • Biopsy of affected tissue. The only way to confirm a diagnosis of Churg-Strauss syndrome is to remove a small piece of tissue from an affected organ (biopsy) such as skin or muscle, to confirm or rule out the presence of vasculitis, excessive eosinophils and granulomas.


The conventional treatment has no cure for this syndrome and gives corticosteroids,immunosppressant drugs and immuno-globulin that temporarily relieve the symptoms but its major side-effects is that it impairs the body's ability to fight infection.

Scope of Homeopathy

A proper constitutional Homeopathic treatment will help in coping up with the disease. Homeopathic approach is different from conventional mode of treatment.

Here the totality of the symptoms is considered and the peculiar, strange, rare symptoms which are present only in that individual are given importance in finding the remedy that suits the individual.

Thus a thorough case taking done that includes physical, mental, social, emotional, psychological aspects of patient's life is very important for prescribing a constitutional remedy to the patient.

This remedy will gradually reduce the raised ESR, eosinophil counts of the patient thereby relieving the symptoms of fever, cough and preventing the further complications like pleurisy and alveolar hemorrhage.

Homeopathy works gently, efficiently and without any side-effects while rectifying the exaggerated immune response and reducing the sensitivity and susceptibility of the patient to allergens.
