Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. MS is a disease that can affect your brain and spinal cord, and can cause problems with vision, balance, muscle control.
The hallmark of MS is symptomatic episodes that occur months or years apart and affect different anatomic locations.
The cause of MS is not known, but it likely involves a combination of genetic susceptibility and a presumed non-genetic trigger (eg, viral infection, low vitamin D levels) that together result in a self-sustaining autoimmune disorder that leads to recurrent immune attacks on the CNS.
In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves causing numerous physical and mental symptoms, and often progresses to physical and cognitive disability.
Ayurveda Perspective & Management of Multiple Sclerosis
AYURVEDA, the world’s most ancient, yet uniquely futuristic system of healing, is a system introduced to the human evolution for treating the physical and mental ailments ranging from symptom to syndrome. The methodology is based on principled diagnosis for its practical approach in dealing with acute and chronic diseases. This multi-faceted medicinal system treats the disease at any stage through a series of traditional treatments based on scientific explanations.
The strength of Ayurveda in treating neurological disorders is globally appreciated. Since it addresses the root cause of the issue the results are fantastic.
CHARAKA offers a very effective treatment methodology for MS, based on the classical texts of Ayurveda. We, at CHARAKA pay top priority to Ayurveda research as it aids the metamorphosis of ancient Ayurveda wisdom for the benefit of the present humanity.
MS treatment primarily consists of four procedures:
- Samsodhan (cleansing through Panchakarma therapy)
- Samsaman (palliative care through researched internal medicines)
- Kaya kalp (rejuvenation)
- Sattvavajaya (counseling/psychotherapy)
Along with these, strict diet & life style modification will be advocated.
We have been continuously working and completely dedicated for the MS research since year 2003. With our deep understanding on MS and its treatment modalities, we were highly successful in treating the patients from different counties.
Early intervention is always fruitful and yields good results varying from recovery to cure. MS becomes incurable after the nerve myelin is lost or damaged beyond the body’s ability to repair it. Then it moves into the category of impossible to cure, but possible to manage.
