Complete loss of muscle ability for one or more muscle groups can describe as paralysis. Paralysis can cause loss of feeling/ sensation or loss of mobility in the affected area.
Causes: Paralysis is the damage to the nervous system or brain, especially the spinal cord. Extreme conditions are stroke, trauma, poliomyelitis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), botulism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and Guillain-barré syndrome, etc
Paralysis may be localized, or generalized, or it may follow a specific pattern. For example, restricted paralysis occurs in the bell's palsy where one side of the face may paralyze due to infection of the facial nerve on that side. Sufferers with stroke may be low throughout their body (global paralysis) or have hemiplegia (weakness on one side of the body) or other patterns of paralysis depending on the area of damage in the brain. Other patterns of paralysis arise due to different lesions and their sequelae. For instance, lower spinal cord damage from a critical back injury may result in paraplegia, while an injury higher up on the spinal cord, such as a neck injury, can produce quadriplegia. Victims with paraplegia or quadriplegia regularly use substances such as a wheelchair or standing frame for mobility and to regain some independence.
Symptoms: The signs frequently accompany paralysis from any cause include: numbness and tingling, pain, changes in vision, difficulties with speech, or problems with balance. Spinal cord injury often affects the loss of function in the bladder, bowel, and sexual organs. High spinal cord injuries may cause difficulties in breathing.
According to Ayurveda, paralysis compared with pakshaghata. It has discussed in vata vyadhi prakaranam. It is known to be complicated, as pranayathana & marma (pressure points) are involved. Vata involvement is a significant factor for its complications. The line of Ayurveda Treatment for Paralysis is as follows:
Swedanam (suddation), snehanam (oleation) and virecanam (purgation) are the primary modalities of treating pakshaghata patient. The other panchakarma procedures like
- Nasyam (nasal effusion),
- Vasthi Karma (medicated enema procedures),
- Siro Vasthi,
- Kerala procedures like elakizhi (leaf bundle massage),
- Navarakizhi (shali shastika pinda swedam),
- Pizhichil (sarvanga dhara),
- Siro Dhara (pouring of oil on the head) etc
These therapies performed according to the patient's requirement and severity. Brumhana chikitsa, vata hara chikitsa, and marma chikitsa indicated as per the severity.
Researched internal medicines are usually prescribed, along with diet and lifestyle modifications. A vata pacifying nutrition and proper dietary habit are necessary for long-term success. Additional vata soothing regimens, including daily oil massage and sensory therapies, complete the procedure.
Meditation, yogic practices, pranayama, the breathing exercises are to be done on a regular and daily basis to overcome the stress and the disease.
