Ayurvedic Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis


Multiple sclerosis is a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems. Ayurvedic treatment for multiple sclerosis considers all the aspects related to the patient. It will re-energize the nervous system and strengthen the person as before.

The name multiple sclerosis refers to the scars/plaques in the white matter. Loss of myelin in these lesions causes some of the symptoms, which vary widely depending upon which signals are interrupted. When the myelin is lost, the neurons can no longer effectively conduct their electrical signals. In turn, causing loss of control on limbs, facial muscles, speech, and similar problems.

This autoimmune health problem affects the central nervous system. Basically, the cerebrum and the spinal cord. In turn, resulting in the disturbance in the communication of nerve impulses. The patient will not be able to control his or her limbs. Subsequently, facial paralysis, visual disorder, partial paralysis or whole-body paralysis, and other similar ailments occur. 


Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

Several factors that include heredity, infection, smoking, alcohol consumption, environmental factors, and mental stress leads to the development of multiple sclerosis. The factors may lead to the alteration of the nerve functionality leading to the disease condition. A detailed study of the patient’s physical and psychological conditions is necessary prior to decide the ayurvedic treatment for multiple sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis may occur as the combined effect of different conditions. Ayurveda believes that this medical condition is caused by Pitta and Kapha doshas. Pitta dosha can adversely affect the myelin membranes. Multiple Sclerosis is termed as Kapha Roga in Ayurveda.  The ayurvedic treatment for Multiple Sclerosis is based on this observation.

The improper digestion can lead to the mixing of undigested food or Ama with accumulated doshas or toxins in the body. The condition of the patient will depend on the amount of the mixture collected in the body. Hence, the period of ayurvedic treatment for Multiple Sclerosis will depend on the severity of toxins in the body.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Nerves- Spinal Cord Injury

In Ayurveda, multiple sclerosis can be correlated with “Avrutha/avarana vata”. In Ayurveda Shabdakosha “Avarana” is defined as Avarodha, Gatinirodha i.e. Obstruction or resistance or friction to the normal gati of Vata. So the word “Avarana” can be understood as Acchadana (covering), Avaruddhagati (obstructed movement), Sanga (obstruction), Peedhana, Akriya (loss of function or immobile), Pracchadana (stagnate). We are part of nature and reinstating the equilibrium of our body in relation to nature is the best way to cure health problems.

In Ayurveda, the root cause of multiple sclerosis is a body energy disorder. When the basic principles or dosha are altered or changed, it causes various symptoms. When the body system balance is lost, it can lead to improper digestion and formation and accumulation of toxins in the body. The accumulated toxins cause blockage in the minute channels of the body thus obstructing the movement of body energies, giving rise to neuromuscular disorders. If left untreated these blockages can be fatal resulting in permanent damage of nerves and tissues.

Langhana therapy for Multiple Sclerosis Ayurveda Treatment concentrates on removing the accumulation of ama and pitta/ Kapha doshas. Ayurvedic treatment for Multiple Sclerosis also includes purifying methods of Panchakarma. Alternatively, Shamana therapy is used for a longer period to cure the illness.
