Parkinsons disease is a progressive brain disorder, where the cells of the brain progressively degenerate causing various symptoms, that affects movements. Symptoms progress gradually as it starts as unnoticeable tremors in the hands, reduced expressions on the face, reduced swaying of the hands on walking. These later become visible tremors, stiffness of the muscles of the body, rigidity of the muscles and movements, slouching forward while walking, slowness of the movements, slurred and soft speech.

Parkinsons disease can be considered to Kampa-vata in ayurveda. Vata is the functional principle in the body responsible for movement. General Vata aggravation will cause emaciation or degeneration, blackishness, liking towards heat, tremor, flatulence and constipation.

Aggravation of Vata in thebrain and related structures due to mental stress, improper diet and life style, lack of sleep leads to degenerative changes in the neurons. Progressive degeneration in the neuron, is the reason for this condition. Vata aggravates by default at the later part of life. So, we come across this condition, mostly, in old age.

General Vata pacifying medicines and treatments and those specific to the disease are very effective in the management of Parkinson’s disease. Consumption of medicated ghee having the property of preserving brain cells, ayurvedic medicine which contains natural levodopa are the specific choice of medicines in the treatment protocol. Therapies using specific medicated oils are done to manage the rehabilitation of physical disabilities. Therapeutic oil massage, application of poultice made of herbal leaves dipped in warm oil (ela kizhi), continuous stream of oil all over the body (pizhichil), application of poultice made with cooked herbal grain in a mix of herbal decoction and cows milk (njavara kizhi), continuous stream of lukewarm oil on fore head (siro dhara), keeping of an oil pool on head in a container fixed over the head (siro dhara) are the therapies usually done in this case. Major Panchakarma therapies like Nasal administration of drops of warm oil (nasya) in each nostrils, enema (vasti) with medicated oil and herbal decoctions are also done.

Symptoms like tremor, rigidity, spasm, pain etc… are substantially reduced after the treatments. Internal medications also play a vital role in reducing the symptoms, prevent or slowdown the degenerative changes in the brain. Patients may be able to gradually reduce their dependency on their current medication. These treatments also will help in effective management of all the discomforts that the old age usually suffer from.
