When a part of the brain stops functioning due to the lack of blood flow it is called a Brain Stroke. Blood flow can be blocked either due to a haemorrhage or a thrombus (obstruction in the blood vessel).
Ayurveda is one of the most sought-after treatments for stroke and paralysis afflicted patients. When a stroke occurs, it causes damage to voluntary movement impulses leading to Pakshaghata or Paralysis. It approaches the disease progression and its triggers in the similar view as modern medicine but the approach to treatment has been known to show much better results. Ayurveda moves a step beyond managing and resolving the symptoms or effects of the disease. It believes in finding out the root cause, controlling the damage and strengthening the source (organ / functional system). Ayurveda relates stroke with restrictions in Vata movement causing tendons (Srotas and Sanyu) in one half of the body to dry up, leading to loss of sensation and movement. Curing it takes a continued intensive rehabilitation therapy.
We, at Akami Ayurveda, take a comprehensive approach to treating a stroke/paralysis afflicted patient. Our doctors, review the case in collaboration with in-house physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Modern medical diagnostic tests reports are considered to understand the severity of the disease and the strength of the patient to handle the treatment. Then a recovery and rehabilitation roadmap are devised for the patient.
If the stroke or paralysis happened recently, then medication and mild ayurvedic therapies (etc. Kaya Seka and Abhyanga) are prescribed. However, a patient who had the stroke over a year ago, requires more extensive treatment as it is difficult to resuscitate non-functional muscles (i.e. without strength and movement).
Akami Ayurveda offers rehabilitative treatments for other neuro-biological disorders like epilepsy, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia as well. For more information or to book an appointment with our doctors, please call us on (+91) 9020162016.
