Paralyses - Can Ayurveda Treat It?

Paralyses - Can Ayurveda Treat It?

Facial paralysis is when there is a loss of voluntary movement of the face on one or both sides. The following are the most common causes of facial paralysis.

  • Bell’s palsy, the most common cause of facial paralysis
  • Stroke is another major cause of facial paralysis, could be combined with right side arm/leg paralysis
  • Tumours, affecting the facial region can exert pressure on the nerves and lead to paralysis
  • Infections such as herpes zoster infections cause paralysis

Symptoms:

  1. Difficulty in speech, eating and drinking
  2. Closing eyelids, movement, and expressions become difficult
  3. Loss of sensation, which may be temporary or permanent

Ayurveda believes in not just correcting the paralysis but improving overall health so that there is no recurrence and other areas are also prevented from being affected. According to it, increased vata causes paralysis and so treatment includes correction of it plus prevention of vata accumulation through diet and lifestyle changes.

Dietary and lifestyle changes:

  1. Avoid cold and sour foods like curd, buttermilk, ice creams, cold foods like cucumber, banana, watermelons, etc.
  2. Avoid fermented foods as they aggravate Vata
  3. Reduce or avoid pulses like dal as they can worsen gas accumulation
  4. Substitute rice with wheat
  5. Substitute cow’s milk with buffalo milk
  6. Avoid smoking and alcohol completely
  7. Diet must be easily digestible and simple with lot of green leafy vegetables
  8. Avoid foods which can cause constipation

Ayurvedic remedies:

  1. Beejband or country mallow: This has nerve stimulating properties and so useful in paralysis of any sort
  2. Kali Mirch or black pepper: Used as a water gargle, it is beneficial in correcting paralysis
  3. Lavanga or cloves: People with Bell’s palsy were given water to which some drops of clove oil were added, and they showed remarkable benefits.
  4. Mulethi or licorice: This is proven to be effective in stopping the progression of paralysis. People with Bell’s palsy, in whom there was involuntary tearing, had a stoppage of the symptom.
  5. Ashwagandha capsules: They treat paralysis and also reduce anxiety and stress and depression. It helps by calming and rejuvenating the entire nervous system. It also helps control muscle and joint pains and reduces stiffness. It also helps control insomnia and allows for improved blood pressure.
  6. Curcumin: This is very beneficial in Bell's palsy patients. With its rich antioxidant content, it reduces free radical release and helps control inflammation and reduces oxidative stress.
  7. Nirgundi oil: It also cures the imbalance between Vata and Kapha in the body. Massaging with this oil heals injured facial muscles and nerves and improves paralysis. It also eliminates toxins and prevents greying of hair. Its anti-inflammatory properties provide relief from inflammation and pain.

Pranayam, meditation is sure useful in this condition. Do start asanas, slowly begin with surynamaskar. Along with this, one can take Shastrokta medicine, that are-- 1. Ekangvir Ras vati 1 or 2 bd + Maharasnadi kashay ghan vati 2+2 during the day.

It seems you are suffering from chronic bronchitis. It can be allergic or due to other causes. It has to be treated. Only preventing medication will not be sufficient.

My father had a hemorrhagic stroke 1 month before due to high blood pressure and diabetes. His right side is paralysed and he have difficulty speaking and swallowing. Doctors said surgery is not possible and medications are given. Will he be able to speak, and will his paralyzed side be normal ever? Right now he can recognize everyone. Will the bleeding in brain cure only by medicines?

It's difficult to say whether he will speak or not. Because left brain has the centre for speech. But a good interactive environment will definitely help him for better recovery. Don't stop interacting with him and you might see the results that you want to.

I am suffering from sleep paralysis for past 2 years. Daily in midnight ill be suffered from it whenever I want to wakeup. It is coming Regularly how to overcome this problem.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Usually there is no need of any treatment for sleep paralysis. The main treatment is improved sleep habits (sleep hygiene) including going to bed at the same time every night, ensuring a comfortable sleep environment free of distractions and avoiding caffeine before sleeping. Avoid eating big meals, smoking, or drinking alcohol or caffeine shortly before going to bed get regular exercise. You can consult a sleep specialist for the same and medications like antidepressents are prescribed.

Partial Vs Complete Paralysis - Know The Difference!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Neurology

Partial Vs Complete Paralysis - Know The Difference!

As children, you have probably learnt that paralysis is complete inability to move, sense, touch or control other bodily sensations. But little did we know that paralysis comes in many forms depending on the extent to which a person is immobilized. So, what is the difference between partial and total paralysis?

What is Total Paralysis?
Whether temporary or permanent, paralysis is the inability to move part of the body due to nerve damage. However it does not mean that people with total paralysis cannot move any parts of the body – they can still use their faces and necks. The extensive form of paralysis is typically referred to as quadriplegia, which involves diminished or absence of movement in the trunk, arms, legs, hands and feet. Some common symptoms of total paralysis are as follows:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Unable to control bowels and bladder
  • Pain anywhere in the body
  • No sensation below the site of injury
  • Difficulty breathing

What is partial paralysis?
A smaller portion of the body is affected by partial paralysis. One of the most common types of partial paralysis is Paraplegia that occurs below the waist. If affects both the legs, hips and other functions. Other forms of partial paralysis can be Monoplegia where a single area like one limb gets affected and Hemiplegia where parts of the body on the same side get affected. Some common symptoms of partial paralysis are as follows:

  • Inability to walk
  • Difficulty with sexual functioning
  • Pain below the site of injury
  • Unable to feel or move your legs or arms

How to Predict the type of paralysis?
The location of the injury or site of nerve damage will usually determine the type of paralysis. Damages in the cervical spinal cord almost inevitably lead to total paralysis associated with quadriplegia. The higher the injury is located, the more extensive the paralysis will be. Lower injuries commonly lead to partial paralysis. The prognosis is generally much better with this type of paralysis. With proper care and therapy, individuals may experience intermittent difficulties with movement and can regain.

Can paralysis be treated?
Whether it is total paralysis or partial paralysis, the positive prognosis is certainly possible, given the condition of the patient and other factors. Physical therapy involves teaching the brain and spinal cord to work around the damage and also aid neuron healing over time. Paralysis can be classified under a number of ways and the most basic classification is that of partial or complete paralysis. Talk to your doctor to understand what type of paralysis you have and adopt a positive outlook to help you towards recovery.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

lybrate-user -- Flu vaccine helps to keep away from flu virus & its effects. It has nothing to do with cold air, cold wind ,cold eatables. You are suppose to avoid all allergic things which cause cold to you. Build up your immunity by eating protein rich diet -- all non vegeterian foods ,dhals ,groundnuts and other pulses and fruits and vegetables--- you will not fall sick often ,BYE.

Homeopathic medicine is very effective in eradication of allergy permanently from the body. Take constitutional homeopathic medicine from good homeopath. Prolong treatment is needed for complete cure. Avoid taking cold things. Gargle twice daily with lukewarm water. Take balance d diet and drink plenty of water. Do pranayam and exercise daily.

It is good to know that you are worried about your father's health. From the complaints you are telling, it seems like your father had a stroke. The head revolving sensation might be related to that event or some underlying medical problem. It is better to get your father evaluated by a Geriatrician (an Elderly Care Specialist Physician) for the head revolving sensation and not feeling hungry. Only after proper examination, it would be apt to take medicines as prescribed, if necessary. Regards. Take Care.

Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given, but the information is very general, so it is not possible to give any advise or suggestion. I need to know following things: Fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, height, weight, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, drugs being taken with dosage. It is better if you come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with all the details, then I can give specific advise and even prescriptions if required, as in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. Plus I will be able to have a follow up also with you. Thanks.

Pain on the right hand may be due to overuse as he was not using his left arm after paralysis, better you consult a good occupational Therapist, he will suggest some activities which will help to reduce pain on his right arm.
