Neurological disorders, according to Ayurveda, are issues with the Majja Dhatu. In the vast majority of situations, neurological illnesses are classified as Vatavyaadhi, or health problems induced by a Vata Dosha imbalance. Although Vata is present in all instances, the other two Doshas of Pitta and Kapha, as well as problems in Dhatu or Mala, may also be present. Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, and Muscular Dystrophy have all become more common as a result of poor diets, poor lifestyle choices, and, in some cases, hereditary susceptibility.
Patients with Chronic Weariness Syndrome experience terrible fatigue, muscle aches, and significant short-term memory or attention problems, among other symptoms. The specific cause of CFS, as well as associated psychological and biological aspects, remains unknown. CFS can develop as a result of a traumatic incident or a viral infection. It could also be the result of alterations in nervous system function or the presence of stress hormones comparable to those identified in people with depression and anxiety disorders.
Fibromyalgia is a condition that affects the body's soft tissues and muscles. Women experience it at a far higher rate than males. It generally appears in the first half of life, but it can appear at any moment beginning in childhood. This disease is caused by an imbalance of various bodily energies, especially within the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, according to Ayurveda. Ayurvedic fibromyalgia therapy is based on a diagnosis of the underlying cause, the patient's current health condition, and various connected problems, after which natural Ayurvedic home remedies and customised herbal medications are prescribed.
Multiple sclerosis, often known as MS, is a condition in which the insulation of nerve cell fibres in the brain and spinal cord is damaged, resulting in a variety of central nervous system problems. It's still up for discussion whether the condition is autoimmune or inflammatory. The term'sclerosis' refers to a hardening of the skin. Structures such as nerve fibres lose their flexibility and become rigid as a result of this illness. The term "multiple sclerosis" is also a misnomer. The disease generally appears in the early part of a person's life and is more prevalent in women. Multiple sclerosis therapy in Ayurveda focuses on a variety of elements, including nerve strengthening and psychological concerns.
The progressive degeneration of nerve connections, also known as ganglia, is the cause of Parkinson's disease. These junctions, which are located at the base of the brain, influence muscle control and bodily motions. When the muscles in a hand or limb are at rest, tremors develop. Parkinson's disease is similar to kampavata, a condition documented in Ayurvedic scriptures. In Ayurveda, Parkinson's disease therapy focuses on strengthening the neurological system and renewing brain tissues to promote general health.
Natural Ayurvedic home remedies combined with individualised therapy have proven to be helpful in helping persons with Parkinson's disease stay healthy.
In Ayurveda, epilepsy is referred to as 'Apasmara.' This condition occurs as a result of aberrant electrical activity in the brain, which causes seizures or fits in which the patient convulses violently and may become unconscious or disoriented. According to estimates, roughly 5–10% of the world's population over the age of 80 has had at least one epileptic episode, but they do not necessarily have epilepsy.
Sciatica is a condition in which the supporting tissues of the leg's sciatic nerves become inflamed. A discomfort radiates from the lumbar (lower back) area to the back of the legs in this disease. Sciatica symptoms, which can affect one or both legs, are most common after the age of 30, and they get worse as you get older.
