Ataxia

Basic description of the disease


  • All the muscles and joints get the command from the brain. Cerebellum is the part of the brain, which collects the senses from the body and then “give” orders to the different body parts. These orders travel to the spinal cord from the brain and then reach to the muscles, responsible for the particular movement. 

  • When this link between the brain and the spine does not work properly, orders from the brain do not reach the muscles and interfere with movement -  person cannot walk normally, that calls Ataxia in medical language. 

  • Ataxia is a lack of muscle coordination that may affect a person’s speech, eye movements, and ability to swallow, walk, and pick up objects, among other voluntary movements. Primar cause of Atxia is damage of cerebellum. 

  • Conditions which affect include alcohol abuse, medications, tumour, brain degeneration, Head Injury, Infections, Medications, stroke.

  • There are several forms and types of ataxia. Some most common types of ataxia are hereditary ataxia, Autosomal dominant ataxia, Autosomal recessive ataxia

 

Ayurveda provide the treatment for ataxia with good result experience. The main aim of the treatment is to ensure the progress of the condition  - to avoid the disability of the patient and can ensure quality of life. 

Ayurveda recognises all movement related conditions as Vata Vyadhi. Vata is responsible for coordination. When Vata is aggravated, it causes problems with the movements and their coordination. It is important to reduce Vata, good results is by using  Samtarpana Chikitsa Ayurvedic treatment -  means nourishing treatment – internal and external. Ayurvedic treatment is done by the use of herbs and medicines prepared from them. Nourishment helps in bringing back the normalcy of the body. Brahmi Capsules, Bacopa monneiri herb which is known as the tonic for the nerves, Gotu Kola Capsules - Mandukaparni is the herbs used to prepare Gotu kola capsules. It helps to improve memory, treat diseases of the brain like injury . Also Ashwagandha, Curcumin is used in Ataxia treatment.

Panchakarma therapies  like Basti, Shirodhara, Shirobasti, Nasya, Karnapuran, Sarvang Dhara is recommended. 

 Ayurveda has a very precise treatment plan that is individual to each patient -  thats why Kapha Dosha  always is controled – it is important to understand that a patient’s Kapha Dosha ,which should not increase beyond a point. Otherwise this condition leads to the obesity which causes severe problems with walking of the patient and condition deteriorates.Therefore, the supervision of an Ayurvedic doctor and the development of a treatment plan is a very important part of the process. Using medication without the advice of a doctor can have the opposite effect! Please be responsible!
