Parkinson’s Disease And Ayurveda

According to modern Science Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that belongs to the group of conditions called motor system disorders. Parkinson’s disease cannot be cured and sufferers get worse over a period of time as the normal body functions including breathing, balancing the movement and heart functions worsen.

Parkinson’s disease most often occurs after the age of 50 and is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly. The disease is caused by the slow deterioration of the nerve cells in the brain which create Dopamine. Dopamine is a natural substance found in the brain that helps control muscle movements throughout the body.

The above positive results in the better management of Parkinson’s Disease is usually achieved by special types of Dhara ,Pizhichal,Kizhi,Vasthi etc using our special type of medicines prepared as per Ashtavidhya traditions. In addition the treatment procedure is monitored regularly by experienced physicians.

Failure to swing one’s arm when walking.
Flexion (stooped) posture.

Frozen painful shoulder.
Limping or dragging of one leg
Numbness tingling, ache or discomfort of the neck or Limbs

Mellowing of the voice.
subjective sensation of internal trembling.
Resting tremor.

It is assumed that both internal and external medicines and treatments in the Ayurvedic system help to check the dopamine loss in the brain cells and the neurodegeneration process is thus delayed and diluted. Gradually the patient gets power to withstand the symptoms.

The characteristic symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are :

At this advanced stage of the disease also Ayurveda has an effective role to play. Prolonged inpatient treatment with counseling helps the patient to recover gradually. When they get both physical and mental power from these treatments, usually the discomforts are experienced to be coming under control. The percentage of relief is dependent upon the age of the patient, chromnicity of the symptoms and also duration of the onset of the disease.
