Paralysis in Ayurveda

Paralysis is a condition in which muscles of body parts are affected & stops functioning due to the nervous system or brain problems. Paralysis can occur in one or complete parts of the body & can be categorized into different types based on the area they affect.

In case of complete paralysis, a person becomes unable to do any movement.

Paralysis Types are known by different names in Ayurveda, such as Pakshaghata ( Monoplegia – One leg or arm are affected ), Paksha Vadha, Ekanga Vata, Ardita Vata, etc

Now understand what actually causes the condition of paralysis.

Root Cause for paralysis in Ayurveda


Paralysis in Ayurveda falls under the Vata Vyadhi disorders resulting from provoked vata dosha. Vata is aggravated mainly in the brain’s region due to the following causes-

  • Stress
  • Stroke
  • Brain Injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • cerebral hemorrhage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Post-polio syndrome
  • Tumors
  • Obesity
  • Improper sleep Patterns
  • Exposure to toxins in the body

Worsened Vata Dosha affects the nerves of the body and leads to paralysis. The Message transfer process from the brain through muscles via nerves stops.

Is Paralysis Curable?


Early stages of paralysis are completely curable by ayurvedic methods. The Success of treatment also depends on many other factors-

Patient’s age

  •         The Time gap between paralytic attack onset & treatment initiation
  •         Other diseases in the body
  •         Remarkable achievements can be seen in patients with ayurvedic treatments. A strong will of determination is very important to succeed.
