Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. is caused by the very gradual deterioration of nerve junctions popularly known as ganglia. These junctions are situated at the base of the brain and affect muscle control and movements of the body. Tremors begin in a hand or limb when the muscles are at rest. Parkinsons disease ay be compared with the disease kampavata described in Ayurveda texts.


Most people with Parkinson’s disease have idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (having no specific known cause). A small proportion of cases, however, can be attributed to known genetic factors. Other factors have been associated with the risk of developing PD, but no causal relationship has been proven.

Ayurvedic view of Treatment

Parkinsons is co-related with kampavata in Ayurveda. In old age vata dosha is more predominant in the body. This vata relocates in the brain and dries up the brain cells leading to tremors and instability. Parkinsons disease reflects massive vitiation of vata which occupies almost all channels of body, Weak digestive fire, disturbed digestion and presence of toxins, are generally obsereved in the patient at gastrointestinal as well as cellular levels.In Ayurvedic treatment natural herbs in conjunction with nerve tonics are beneficial to restore digestive function both in the gastro intestinal tract and at a cellular level. Specific diets and regimen are advised.

Ayurvedic massages, nasya, karnapuran, basti etc help in minimizing vata diseases and maintaining health of nervous sytem.
