What is Paralysis

Paralysis is a medical emergency where a part of the body, or the complete body loses its function. Being one of the leading causes of death all over the world, paralysis can happen anytime due to a number of reasons.


Reasons for Paralysis

The most common reasons though, are uncontrolled high blood pressure, or some sort of head injury. Paralysis leads to the sudden death of certain brain cells due to lack of oxygen, when the flow of blood to the brain is lost due to blockage of an artery to the brain. It is the most common cause of disability in adults.


Ayurveda View

According to the science of Ayurveda, paralysis occurs when the Vata dosha aggravates in the brain. Continuous exposure to stress, strenuous exercise, insomnia, or the obstruction of channels present in the brain, cause the Vata dosha to aggravate. Such aggravated Vata dosha can cause the nerves to dry up, leaving adverse effects on the opposite side of the body.


Ayurveda treatment for Paralysis

Ayurveda manages such cases with a lot of promise, and the earliest exposure to Ayurveda is the key to speedy and healthy recovery. Along with the internal medication and external Ayurveda treatments prove to be extremely impactful in handling such situations.
