CAUSES: Paralysis is most often caused by damage to the nervous system or brain, especially the spinal cord. Major causes are Stroke, Trauma, Poliomyelitis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Botulism, Spina Bifida, Multiple Sclerosis, and Guillain-Barré Syndrome etc.
Paralysis may be localized, or generalized, or it may follow a certain pattern. For example, localized paralysis occurs in Bell’s palsy where one side of the face may be paralyzed due to inflammation of the facial nerve on that side. Patients with stroke may be weak throughout their body (Global Paralysis) or have Hemiplegia (weakness on one side of the body) or other patterns of paralysis depending on the area of damage in the brain. Other patterns of paralysis arise due to different lesions and their sequelae. For example, lower spinal cord damage from a severe back injury may result in Paraplegia, while an injury higher up on the spinal cord, such as a neck injury, can cause Quadriplegia. Patients with paraplegia or quadriplegia often use equipment such as a wheelchair or standing frame for mobility and to regain some independence.
SYMPTOMS: The Symptoms often accompany Paralysis from any cause include: Numbness and Tingling, pain, Changes in Vision, Difficulties with Speech, or Problems with Balance. Spinal cord Injury often causes Loss of Function in the Bladder, Bowel, and Sexual Organs. High Spinal cord Injuries may cause difficulties in Breathing.
According to Ayurveda, Paralysis is compared with PAKSHAGHATA. It has been discussed in Vata Vyadhi Prakaranam. It is known to be a complicated, as Pranayathana & Marma (Pressure Points) are involved. Vata involvement is a major factor for its complications. The Line of Treatment is as follows:
“Swedanam Sneha Samyuktham Pakshaghate Virechanam!!”
Swedanam (Suddation), Snehanam (Oleation) and Virecanam (Purgation) are the main modalities of treating Pakshaghata Patient. The other Panchakarma Procedures like Nasyam (Nasal Effusion), Vasthi Karma (Medicated Enema Procedures), Siro Vasthi, Kerala Procedures like: Elakizhi (Leaf Bundle Massage), Navarakizhi (Shali Shastika Pinda Swedam), Pizhichil (Sarvanga Dhara), Siro Dhara (Pouring of Oil on the Head) etc are done according to the patient’s requirement and severity. Brumhana Chikitsa, Vata hara Chikitsa and Marma Chikitsa are indicated.
Researched Internal Medicines are usually prescribed along with Diet and Life style Modifications. A Vata pacifying diet and proper dietary habit are essential for long-term success. Additional Vata pacifying regimens including daily oil massage and Sensory Therapies complete the treatment.
