Hello,

Myself is Dr. Harshita Sethi I am Ayurvedic practitioner and diet and lifestyle counsellor too. After finishing my MD in Kaya Chikitsa branch of ayurved in 2003, I started my own practice with the name of Avedna Ayurveda, after that I spent few years in UK and coming back in 2014 I started, I extended my practice into panchkarma centre and opened a panchkarma wellness clinic with the name of Avedna Ayurveda Wellness Panchkarma Centre. I have got two branches of it, one is in Gurgaon and one is in Noida.

And today I am going to talk about neurological disorders which is a Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease normally seen in elderly patients, so you know patient is usually 65 years of age but nowadays we are seeing early onset of Parkinson’s disease and what happens in Parkinson’s disease patient start with the symptom of uncontrolled movement of finger and thumb. Basically it's a degenerative disorder, so what happens in our brain there is a part of brain stem where the loss of function of specialised group of cells happens and it stops the production of neurotransmitters which is dopamine, it is chemical basically which is released by a nerves cell and it passes the signal to another nerve cell. So when there is a deficiency of this particular neurotransmitter then there are some motor changes starts happening in our body and patient you know they experience that some kind of tremors in their hands, arms and gradually it extends to leg also. It becomes very difficult for the patient to do daily task, you know like opening or closing of button of their shirt becomes very difficult and then gradually goes to the legs also and which hampers their gate and the patient also get very expressionless face and sometimes they give a very mask face kind of feeling to us and in some patients we see the loss of memory also happens with Parkinson’s disease. So what we do in Parkinson’s disease basically, in ayurveda also it is mentioned very beautifully with the name of kampavata or vepathu it is a kind of Vata disorder. When the Vata increases in our body our excessive predominance of Vata or any imbalance of Vata happens in our body then this kind of movements we see, uncontrolled moment we see in our body. So in this we treat Vata we do Vata chikitsa with oleation therapy with Abhyanga with particular oils like ashwagandha oil and bala oil and we gives certain herbs which can regenerate or even if they cannot regenerate they can prevent the detoration of further nerve cells. So the cells which we have the intact nerves cells, we can prevent them from further deteriorating. So and there are some herbs which show the activity of this natural they have got natural leveropinedat so we give these kind of herbs to those patients along with the complete treatment of lifestyle and daily regime according to Vata pacifying diet and Vata pacifying herbs we give it to them. If there is a predominance of other doshas like if there is a association of some other doshas like Pitta or Kapha than we treat them accordingly, so we give the herbs like guduchi, shankhpushpi, jatamansi then there is a one more drug of choice is atmagupta, which is very very effective in Parkinson's disease. So atmagupta is basically micuna pruriens but we give this in very control supervision of a Ayurvedic physician and there are some therapies also we do in Parkinson's disease to prevent it further going on for the deterioration there are some Abhyanga massages we do, vasti chikitsa to do, in which we give medicated enema to prevent the Vata from the sthan of its sanchreya where it is originating, So we relieve the constipation and we control the Vata from the place of its origination and then there are there is another way of preventing Parkinson's disease is continuously mantra chanting you know when we are repeating something or singing something or like in hindu culture we have a culture of chanting mantra’s according to the days, there are different mantra’s for the different days like for the Sunday there is a god son we chant different mantra’s for god sun, for Monday it's a day of lord Shiva so we chant different mantra’s for lord Shiva, like Tuesday is a day of hanuman so we chant hanuman chalisa which has got 40 verses in that. So we memorize it and chant it without looking at it, so what it does with it stimulates our brain cells and it prevent further deterioration of our brain cells. So I would advise all the people should start putting this into practice when they reach the age of 50 which is a innerway we can prevent Parkinson's disease and other therapies we do it at do at our Panchkarma Centre is Potli massage is Abhyanga, shirodhara and to prevent neurological muscular disorders we do Shasti shali pinda sweda also in which cook special kind of rice in the milk and applied all over your body. So it is useful in paralysis and muscular weakness kind of disease.

So here I end for today now, so you can contact me through Lybrate or you can contact me two of my Avedna Ayurveda Panchkarma Centre, one is in Noida and one is in Gurgaon. I hope you find this information useful, Thank you.
