    Ayurvedic view of Treatment
    • Integrated Ayurveda – Neurology treatments at Harivihar

    • Neurology is that branch of modern medicine which deals with diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerve, muscle and neuromuscular junction. Various genetic or hereditary, environmental, traumatic, vascular, neoplastic, infective and inflammatory causes affect the optimal functioning of the central and peripheral nervous systems leading to various diseases. Neurological diseases are usually chronic and not all are curable. Take for example a person affected with stroke. Stroke produces a vascular damage to the brain resulting in neurological deficits which can be reduced to a great extent with timely neurological intervention followed by rehabilitation. However, in most cases, we see stroke survivors with partial deficits having to lead the rest of their life with their deficit thus affecting the quality of their life. The same is the case with neuro degenerative diseases like Parkinsons disease, Dementia, Myelopathy, Neuropathy, Myopathy etc. Many a times, the neurologist faces patients with chronic ailments for which he doesn’t have a cure.

    • Why choose Ayurveda?

    • Ayurveda is a 5000 year old system of medicine which originated from India .It is probably the oldest system of medicine in the world today. Ayurveda has a holistic approach in that it treats not just the disease but the entire being. It takes into account the physical ,intellectual, mental and spiritual aspects of the individual it treats. Ayurveda treatments are based on the trisdosha concept of vata, pitta and kapha, the balance of which leads to harmony of the being as a whole and the imbalance of which leads to accumulation of toxins leading to diseases. Kerala has contributed immensely to the field of Ayurveda since many eminent Ayurveda physicians (ashtavaidyas) had their origin here. Ayurveda has effective treatments for many chronic neurological and musculoskeletal diseases.

    • Yoga and meditation

    • Yoga is a life of self-discipline based on the tenets of simple living and high thinking. Regular practice of yoga will help to attain happiness and inner peace of mind. Yoga is a complete life. It is a method which overhauls all aspects of the human personality. Yoga does not require a turning away from life. It demands transformation and spiritualisation of life.

    • Approach

    • The neurologist evaluates the case and might ask for relevant investigations and subsequently discusses with the Ayurveda physician who then formulates a treatment strategy according to the Ayurvedic principles. The treatments are done purely according to the Ayurveda protocol. Yoga and breathing exercises (pranayama) is an integral part of the treatment. Most neurological diseases would need two to three weeks or even longer duration of ayurvedic treatments. It is important to note here that the aim of treatment in chronic neurological disorders is not always to cure. Sometimes cure can be impossible and in those instances prevention of disease progression by bringing the doshas into balance and correcting the Agni(majja dhathu ) of the nervous system may be the treatment goals. Sometimes, regular follow up treatments might become necessary. However most chronic neurological disorders make good improvement with regular ayurvedic treatments.
