Paralysis is a condition where a part or the complete body loses its function. Part of the body is termed as hemiplegia and complete is paraplegia.

There are multiple reasons for this condition. The most common 2 reasons are uncontrolled high blood pressure or head injury. Rarely tumours can also cause paralysis. If the causative factor is high BP, then the major reason behind it is erratic lifestyle. Hectic lifestyle coupled with sedentary life adds to it. Improper sleep patterns and obesity can also be some factors. Always under mentally stressful environment is another major reason for high BP. Once the person is diagnosed hypertensive, he should never neglect his medication and regular check-ups are a must.

Usually brain injury leads to this condition. Injury to the spinal cord can also happen. This leads to the sudden weakening of one side of the body. Usually when the left side of the brain is affected, the right side paralyses and vice versa. Immediate attention is required to keep the condition from worsening. Ayurveda manages such cases with lots of promise. Most importantly, as mentioned before, the BP is brought under control. Clubbed with physiotherapy, our external and internal treatments are extremely effective in handling such conditions. The earliest exposure to Ayurveda is the key to speedy recovery.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problem.

Signs and Symptoms

The symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be different from person to person. Visual, sensory, and motor signs and symptoms are all part of multiple sclerosis. The first symptoms are often visual changes. It commonly affects the cerebellum, the portion of the brain responsible for balance and fine motor coordination. Consequently, people often have difficulty maintaining their balance when walking and performing delicate tasks with their hands. Most people with multiple sclerosis complain of a constant state of tiredness.

Management

MS is a degenerative condition. extreme care is taken while handling such conditions. Mental strength from the patient’s side is extremely necessary for great results. Rejuvenation is the main approach. First mild cleansing followed by strengthening of the muscles and nerves will help the person recover really well.

Loss of muscle function for one or more muscles is known as stroke or paralysis. This can be accompanied by a sensory loss in the affected area if there is sensory damage as well as motor. About 1 in 50 people have been diagnosed with some form of paralysis, transient or permanent. The word paralysis comes from the Greek which means “disabling of the nerves”.

Symptoms

Management

Partial paralysis or pakshaghata can be successfully managed by Ayurvedic therapies. Once the high BP (reason for most strokes) is kept under control, then management becomes easy.

Cause The most common cause for this condition is cerebral haemorrhage. Usually cerebral haemorrhage is caused either by an injury or increase in blood pressure leading to a stroke. According to Ayurveda indulgence is excess of Vata increasing activities like sleeplessness, over exertion and food which are dry and under nourishing are the main reasons.
