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.
