The human body’s most delicate system is the central nervous system. This system is so intelligent that it controls everything from the finest subtle movements to gross movements. The nervous system is structured like a circuit, with a cluster of wires covered in fats known as the myelin sheath. When this sheath sheds off, current diffuses from the nerves and leads to improper functions in the body–a disease called Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
What are the chances of recovery from Multiple sclerosis through Ayurveda?
Here we will discuss all these points one by one. This discussion will give a perfect overview of the condition. And certainly will help you to make a better decision about the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
As discussed above when the myelin sheath of the nerves in the central nervous system decays. This leads to diffused nerve impulses. Because this sheath protects the nerve impulses. Similar to the plastic covering on the electric wires. When this insulation doesn’t work properly. When more areas affect by the loss of sheath, patients develop more symptoms and problems. This happens because of the loss or the diminished ability of axons to conduct impulses.
This loss of myelin occurs in the spinal cord and brain tissue, so the effects of this condition are usually widespread. However, certain symptoms occur depending on where the plaque or lesion is located in the brain or spinal cord.
Multiple sclerosis causes disability. Because in multiple sclerosis spasticity of muscles, imbalance of the body, and numbness in body parts is a common symptom to occur. And this disease is increasing day by day. As per the Multiple Sclerosis Trust from the United Kingdom- “There is evidence to suggest that both MS incidence and prevalence rates have increased over the last few decades.” Conditions are no different in India. As per the research done by Bharucha et. Al “The last decade has seen an increase in the number of MS cases being reported in both adult and pediatric populations”. Once there was only 1 patient for every 100,000 people but now the ratio is somewhere 20 per 100,000 people. Therefore now we all need to revisit the Shastra to find Ayurvedic Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis and we are doing the same for years.
Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the nervous system. But not a problem due to the nervous system.
In multiple sclerosis, the main problem is- the immune system. This is an autoimmune condition that impacts the nervous system.
The central nervous system is a precious place for the human body. Therefore access to this place is limited for the rest of the body cells. There is a barrier that allows-disallow, all external things. This barrier is- the blood-brain barrier.
Generally as a rule these immune system-related cells are not supposed to enter the nervous system. When this barrier is breached by immune system cells. These cells enter into the nervous system and these start killing the myelin sheath cells. Because these cells specialize in killing to save the body from external threats.
Here immune cells kill and destroy the important cells of the body. And this causes the disease- Multiple Sclerosis.
So in a simple way the answer for what is multiple sclerosis is –
This indepth understanding of the pathology helps in giving the best Ayurvedic Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis.
Before we move to the discussion about multiple sclerosis, we need to know about the certain signs and symptoms of Multiple sclerosis.
How multiple sclerosis will represent in the body depends on the location of lesions in brain or spinal cord. Here are few general symptoms in the body-
These are the complete signs and symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. But when most of these are present in a patient, the problem is really much advanced. If we talk about the earliest symptoms, these are-
Involvement of the multiple systems of the body and complexity causes delayed diagnosis, in most of cases. A thorough examination of the patient and a skilled physician is the most important requirement for making an exact diagnosis of the condition.
Now it is the time to know about the treatment possibilities for multiple sclerosis with Ayurveda. Because modern medicine has only one line of treatment and that is to “paralyze the immune system”. Ayurveda is more promising in treatment possibilities. But before anything, we need to know what does Ayurveda says about MS? This will help us to understand the Ayurvedic Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis.
Ayurveda is an ancient knowledge of the body. The Ayurveda works in two ways for the human body. One is to prevent disease. And second is to treat a disease. When we say prevention- it is also about preventing the further flare-up of the disease. What we all look for in the case of multiple sclerosis. Before this, we need to know what does Ayurveda says about multiple sclerosis?
Ayurveda has no direct reference for Multiple Sclerosis. No such condition or syndrome, which we can relate directly to this complex condition. The main idea with Ayurveda about MS is- this is a Vata Disorder.
When one says- Vata diseases. It sounds that Vata is aggravated. But not true- Vata is not able to express itself in this condition. This is a condition where you can see the “Kshaya” decay of the Vata dosha. Vata dosha is not able to express itself. Because the support from Kapha what Vata needs is missing.
Sounds too technical!!
Let’s explore it.
Vata is responsible for-
Now when we look at the sign and symptoms, things will clear.
So it is clear that in MS. Vata dosha is not able to express itself. Because it’s diffused activity.
The diffused impulse in the nerves is the cause of multiple sclerosis. The same is with Ayurveda, this is diffused action of Vata Dosha!
This is all about the disease and its understanding. But how can we answer the queries with Autoimmune conditions? Here is a simple explanation for this…
Ayurveda works solely on a theory of three doshas. Everything revolves around these. Besides this, there is a concept of Dhatus too. Dhatus are those who hold bodies together. Among the seven Dhatus- Majja Dhatu represents the central nervous system. And it is well documented a person with decay/depletion in Majja dhatu will remain a patient of Vata disease forever.
So here we have two points with us about the ayurvedic approach towards Multiple sclerosis.
We work on these two points at Sukhayu Ayurved to treat the MS. And in the same time, we follow our strong approach of the Treatment of autoimmune diseases. Because the whole treatment is approach-based. Therefore we have proper results in patients of MS.
So let’s know more about the Ayurvedic treatment of MS…
