I am 56 years old working in railways as a design egineer. I am finding the symptoms of parkinsons. Can you suggest me right ayurvedic medicine.

Dear , parkinson is a slow disease starts with tremors and gradually progresses to dyskinesia. Only fine tremors cannot be confirmed as parkinsons disease so kindly confirm the diagnosis with a neurologist in your area. Macuna nuts (kapikachhu seeds - mucuna pruriens) is a good medicine as it is a dopamine agonist although not the ayurvedic management can be a good supplement. Zandu has a otc product called zandopa which can be used. But before confirming consult and confirm the diagnosis.

Arachnoiditis genrally causes symptoms of limbs. But arachnoiditis temporal lobe can not cause upper limb problem. Temporal lobe related to mainly ear /speech problems. Hence you need to consult good senior neurophysician. Or send detailed report on private question.

I gave up alcohol 9 years back and after that I suffered from insomnia. My visit to an ayurvedic physician did not help and so I consulted a psychiatrist. He put me on 0.5 mg alprazolam b.i.d which helped but I used to get up in the morning with a jittery feeling and a month later I developed depression. When I went back to him he prescribes clonazepam 0.5 mg. To be taken along with alprazolam. I was fine after this but now after 9 years I have started with depression and restless sleep. My present psychiatrist suggests alternate medicine but is not sure. Can a psychiatrist help me with a solution.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3.Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

As per standard protocols, there needs to at least 5 years of seizure free period before tapering and stopping medications. Newer protocols followed by some doctors believe in stopping medications even if there is 1 year of seizure free interval. It is best that you consult with your neurologist and let him decide on what is best for you.

Usually the improvement in hypoxic brain injury is not very good. These patients stay on ventilation until they start breathing on their own properly.

Now my father has also got Parkinson's I hope this character kharab hona is not caused by the medicines of Parkinson's n it is not symptomatology of Parkinson's. N the above symptoms r common in old agePlease give me positive responses.

During Parkinson's disease, there is tremor, walking problems and all. But this won't happen. From my side, I would suggest you to go for Homeopathic treatment. As it will help both, your father as well as grandfather. But for that atleast you need to give me few details. It can be reduced within 6 months itself and the allopathic medicines for that can be reduced too. If possible, just give me his details. Take care. :)

Sir I am suffering from Seizures, sir can you tell me about this and suffering from last 5yrs, please sir.

MBBS,J.R. Neurology
General Physician,
Suffering from seizures for the past 5 years makes you an epilepsy patient. The causes can be numerous, starting from infection to local lesions. It is mandatory that you get yourself diagnosed properly for the underlying cause and strictly follow the antiepileptic medications that have been prescribed to you. Patients do recover completely and can live a normal life without depending on drugs. Seizures are indeed a cause for concern as it can be life threatening at times. Sometimes there are triggering factors that induce seizures. So I would advise you to look for such factors and avoid them. Consult a neurologist if you haven't. Take care.

I went to sleep specialist for my apnea problem. He prescribed me nutrum tablets and asked me to use them for one month and revert him back. I want to know why did he prescribe the tablet.

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Neurology

Nutrum is a multivitamin tablet and has no effect on apnea. Ideally, you should undergo a polysomnography (sleep study) to confirm the diagnosis. The, correct treatment can be started.

Resp Sir, My wife is suffering very badly from Migraine problem since last 20 yrs. MRI was normal. Pl suggest any homeopathy medicine for the same. Also guide what things not to do. Thanx.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: take bakson's mig-aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day.
