Prevention of prevailing side effects of Covishield through dietary regimen

The rare syndrome known as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), also called vaccine-induced prothrombotic immune thrombocytopenia (VIPIT) or vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT), was observed in recipients of adenoviral vector COVID-19 vaccines, including Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 and Vaxzervria (AstraZeneca).

Thrombosis development (formation of blood clots at certain parts of the body) and thrombocytopenia (low platelet count below 1 lakh/cumm) are the hallmarks of the illness, and symptoms usually appear 4–42 days following vaccination.

A blood clot is medically termed as thrombosis. Anywhere in the body’s blood vessels be it veins or arteries, the blood clots can form. Certain blood clots can be fatal if they prevent oxygen and blood from getting to crucial organs or if necessary care is not provided.

A novel medical disorder is thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS). It was found subsequent to the global launch of COVID-19 vaccination campaigns. In this specific disorder, low platelet counts and blood clots occur simultaneously with TTS and therefore the illness may pose a serious threat to life.

Approximately 1 in 100,000 recipients of the AstraZeneca vaccination have experienced TTS.

As far as the treatment of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome is concerned, the recommended treatment regimen as per medical science is the administration of Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG), anticoagulation, and avoiding heparin, and platelet transfusion are all part of the treatment.

It is always better to prevent such a life threatening condition rather than taking immunoglobulin and anticoagulants. Following a balanced dietary regimen can help to prevent such prevailing side effects of Covishield vaccine. It is widely acknowledged that diet has a major role in influencing an individual’s risk of developing thrombotic disorders. Lowering serum cholesterol levels—which are otherwise crucial components in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease has been demonstrated to be successful with dietary intervention. Similarly, several dietary elements have demonstrated efficacy in reducing platelet activation via diverse pathways, potentially mitigating the likelihood of thrombosis in the future.

Certain kitchen based herbs like Ginger, Ginseng, Blueberry, purple grapes, tomatoes, onion, garlic and many more helps in the prevention of formation of thrombosis in the blood arteries and thereby can prevent the formation of Covid shield induced Thrombotic syndrome. Alongwith fresh fruits and vegetables, the dietary regimen of plant based foods also contain seeds and nuts, beans and legumes, whole grains and certain heart-healthy oils, which not only manages the heart health but also prevents the risk of development of thrombosis in the blood vessels.

Thus, intake of a healthy and well balanced diet including just the kitchen based herbs can help in the prevention of symptoms of thrombosis and also prevents Covid shield induced Thrombocytopenia Syndrome.
