Ayurvedic Treatment for Various Nervous Disorders

Diseases affecting the mind, spine, and nerves that interface them, are called nervous disorders.

The nervous system is the key system of the body which regulates all the activities of the whole body. It comprises the Central Nervous System (Brain and Spinal cord) and the Peripheral Nervous system ( other neural elements). The nervous system coordinates between the brain and other parts of the body through nerves.

When the nervous system is impaired, the daily routine of a person is impaired and serious health problems occur.

Nervous disorders and diseases can result in problems that range from a simple headache to severe problems like stroke, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, tumours, etc. The quality of life of the patient is affected and a lot of suffering is associated with it.

Nervous disorders need a holistic treatment that treats the root cause. Ayurveda, the traditional science, does just that.

Ayurveda for Nervous Diseases

According to Ayurveda, neurological problems are caused by the issues related to bone marrow or nerve tissues. An imbalance in the body's functional energies or the three doshas, namely Vata, Pitta, and Kapha lead to various diseases.

The functioning of the nervous system is controlled by Vata, which represents movement. It moves independently or can move Pitta and Kapha along with it. Nervous disorders are caused by an imbalance of Vata dosha. Pitta and kapha doshas are blocked by Vata resulting in severe complications. Imbalance in doshas leads to toxin formation.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Nervous Disorders

Ayurveda for nervous problems is based on treating the dosha imbalances and maintains the harmony of body and mind.

The patient's health condition, degree of illness, medical, and family history are examined exhaustively. Depending on the physical condition, specific treatment is decided upon. The course duration, the composition of herbal medicines and dietary regulations are determined, based on the findings, which is why it is different for each patient.

Authentic Ayurveda medicines are used for the treatment to eliminate the disease from its root. Medicated herbal oils, herbal medicines, herbo mineral palliative medicines, and decoctions are administered to improve blood circulation, eliminate toxins or doshas, and rejuvenate the body, thereby restoring overall health.

The balance of all the three doshas is maintained with the help of Panchakarma therapies, which remove toxins from the body. The 5 therapies are Vamana, Virechana, Vasti, Nasy, and Rakta Mokshana.

Before Panchakarma, Snehana, Swedana, and Shirodhara are performed to collect all the toxins to the digestive tract.

Natural herbs like Ashwagandha, Turmeric, Shankhpushpi, Brahmi are useful in treatment.

Yoga asana and meditation help in relieving stress.

Dietary controls, exercises, and lifestyle modifications are suggested by doctors for maintaining health even after recovery.

The ayurvedic treatment eliminates toxins, revitalizes tissues by palliative treatments, and maintains the balance of doshas by proper diet, lifestyle, Yoga, and meditation guidance.

At Jeevess, Panchakarma therapy is performed to eliminate the deep seated toxins and reboot the system. Yoga asanas and meditation are practiced for relieving strain and stress.
