Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Friedreich's Ataxia

Friedreich's ataxia is a medical condition resulting from a genetic abnormality which causes a gradual degeneration of the nervous system. This results in impaired movement and coordination, tremors, difficulty in speech, and other complications. This is a progressive disease in which the symptoms keep on increasing over time. There is no specific treatment or cure for this condition in the modern system of medicine. Treatment or management of this condition is therefore at best only supportive.


Ayurvedic herbal treatment is very effective in Friedreich’s ataxia, since Ayurvedic medicines work very well to help in the recovery of the nervous system. Ayurvedic medicines help the brain cells as well as nerves to regenerate and function normally. Ayurvedic treatment can be given in the form of oral medication as well as local massage of medicated herbal oils, followed by fomentation. Ayurvedic treatment needs to be aggressively given while managing this condition, so that symptoms can be adequately treated and further deterioration can be prevented at the earliest. Aggressive treatment prevents further complications and reduces the morbidity and mortality associated with this condition.


Ayurvedic treatment therefore effectively treats the root cause of Friedreich’s ataxia. The treatment improves all the symptoms like loss of balance, tremors, muscular in-coordination, difficulty in speech, and problems related to vital organs such as the heart. It is important to keep in mind that results are apparent only after a few months of regular treatment, since the regeneration of the damaged nervous system takes time. Individuals affected with Friedreich’s ataxia therefore need to take regular Ayurvedic treatment for least six months in order to get good results. Treatment can then be gradually tapered off and then stopped completely.


Ayurvedic medicines can therefore completely change the outlook for people affected with Friedreich’s ataxia.
