Sudden weakness and numbness of half of the body,difficulty in speaking or hearing, nausea or vomiting, hazy or loss of vision in one eye,intolerable headache, imbalance and sudden fall, drowsiness, dizziness are the alarming symptoms to paralysis which may last for few hours to very few minutes and will disappear soon. Even if the symptoms fade off soon, seek medical help quickly, as it may lead to complete paralysis.
Paralysis is the loss of muscle movements and coordination in some parts of the body or half of the body (right or left). Sudden reduction in blood circulation to a portion of brain tissue ends up in loss of brain function. Reduced blood supply may be due to either hemorrhage (rupture of the blood vessel) or due to clotting of blood in blood vessels.
Ayurvedic term for paralysis is Pakshavata or ekanga vata. Any movement in the body including the nerve impulse is due to vata. Obstruction to such vata leads to this disease.
Depending on the affected body parts, its nomenclature differs−
Involvement of only one side − hemiplegia
Paralysis of the arms and legs − quadriplegia.
Paralysis of the lower half of the body including both legs− paraplegia.
Paralysis of facial muscle – bell’s palsy (ardhitha vata)
Spondylosis, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, alcohol intake, tumors in brain, trauma, heart disease is the most common causes and high risk factors to paralysis.
Complete symptoms are− weakness or unable to walk, loss of sensation of the affected body part, unable to hold any objects, loss of speech and difficulty in swallowing food or liquids due to paralysis of facial muscles, coordination problems.. Etc,.
Apart from all these symptoms, unused part of the body (viz., limbs) will end up in loss of strength, size and flexibility of the muscle which is called muscle wasting in medical terms. This condition is called atrophy. Hence, patients affected by this disease should always attempt to do some physical activity.
Patience and assurance is the first line of treatment, which plays a major role in speedy recovery. Early intervention of the ayurveda treatment gives maximum result. Apart from other treatment modalities, undoubtedly ayurveda stands first for the best possible recovery in paralytic condition. Fortunately, muscle and brain functions can be regenerated by panchakarma programs and rehabilitator measures.
Unique treatment like abhyangam and spastics shali panda swedham helps to bring back the strength and energy to the affected limb.
Special local regimens like shirodhara, shiro−vasti, nasyam will bring back the strength and neuro−muscular function. They even clear the channels by expelling the toxins and clear the blockage causing mood−swings and depression in patients. Mood changes are due to damage of the brain tissue, which cannot be controlled by the person.
As abnormal movement of vata is the main factor to this disease, basti is the best panchakarma treatment to bring back the movement of vata to normalcy. Internal medication like tablets, lehyams, kashayams are to be taken for several months for further improvement.
Along with the medication, at−most support from the family members and strong will power of the patient is of prime importance. Following the diet instructed by the ayurveda doctor and practicing yoga and meditation will further improve the state of the person.
