Meningitis, encephalitis

Basic description of the disease

Infections and other disorders affecting the brain and spinal cord can activate the immune system, which leads to inflammation.  The diseases and the resulting inflammation, can produce symptoms – as fever, headache, seizures, and changes in behavior or confusion.  In extreme cases, these can cause brain damage, stroke.

Inflammation of the meninges(  the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord)  is called  Meningitis .
Inflammation of the brain itself is called  Encephalitis.  
Myelitis  refers to inflammation of the spinal cord.  When both the brain and the spinal cord are involved, the condition is called  Encephalomyelitis.

Infectious causes of meningitis and encephalitis include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Viral meningitis is the  most common  type of meningitis. It’s less severe than bacterial meningitis. Viral encephalitis is the  most common  type of encephalitis. Both viral conditions be caused by: herpes viruses, influenza , measles , mumps , rubella , chickenpox , animal-spread viruses 

Anyone can get meningitis or encephalitis. People who have autoimmune conditions or otherwise weakened immune systems may be at higher risk. Neurological symptoms of both conditions can take several months to fully resolve. 

According to Ayurveda , meningitis and encephalitis is caused due to low immunity and vitiation of Pitta and Kapha Ayurveda believes that inflammation of the brain is caused by an exacerbation of Kapha, while the exacerbated Pitta is responsible for the accompanying fever. The function of Kapha is that it helps the nerve impulses to move at a proper rate by nourishing and protecting the axons of nerves but when it is vitiated it obstructs the nerve impulses.
Ayurveda provides herbal remedies that act as Rasayanas for enhancing the immunity of an individual and other herbs that act on the brain and nervous system to provide strength and nourishment.

Ayurvedic Herbal medicines for internal use could be precribed by Ayurvedic doctor include: Brahmi Capsules, Ashwagandha Capsules, Kaishore Guggul, Boswellia Curcumin Capsules, Medhya Churna, Septrin Tablets, Guluchyadi Kashayam, Mahasudarshan churn.
