Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a medical condition caused by a gradual degeneration of the nerves of the central nervous system, usually resulting as an auto immune disorder due to auto immune dysfunction of the body. Genetic factors also play a major role in causing this condition. Multiple sclerosis includes several disease types such as a relapsing -- remitting type, a primary progressive type, and a secondary progressive type. Symptoms of multiple sclerosis include visual disturbances, muscular spasm, numbness and weakness, loss of sensation, speech impediments, tremors, giddiness, cognitive defects, depression, an aggravation of symptoms with the application of heat or local massage. Pregnancy appears to reduce the number of attacks in female individuals affected with multiple sclerosis.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment for multiple sclerosis is basically aimed at treating the degeneration of the central nervous system, which is the root cause of this condition. In addition, since this disease is an auto immune disorder, auto immune dysfunction of the body needs to be corrected aggressively with the use of Ayurvedic immunomodulatory herbal medicines. A combination of these two treatments helps in treating multiple sclerosis successfully. Ayurvedic herbal medicines which act on the central nervous system and help to strengthen and regenerate the nerve cells as well as the neurotransmitters acting between the nerve cells, are used in high doses for prolonged periods in order to bring about a reversal of the pathology of multiple sclerosis.

Local treatment in the form of the application of medicated herbal oils followed by steam fomentation usually helps in disorders of the central nervous system; however, some patients of multiple sclerosis may not tolerate this treatment. Oral medication in order to stop the degeneration of the central nervous system as well as to bring about a regeneration of all the nerve cells, therefore, forms the mainstay of treatment for multiple sclerosis. Treatment needs to be continued regularly for about six to nine months in order to completely reverse the symptoms and bring the affected individual to normal or near normal.

Multiple sclerosis is an affliction for which there is no known modern treatment. Ayurvedic herbal treatment can bring about a significant improvement or cure for this condition, provided treatment is taken regularly for the recommended duration, according to the severity of the symptoms in the affected individual. Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus be judiciously utilised in the management and treatment of multiple sclerosis.
