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.

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.

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.
