MND Disease Treatment

Do you know how our muscles move?

How do the muscles initiate a movement?

There needs to be a factor or series of factors that aid in initiation, sustaining, and curbing the movement. What is that factor?

Our bodies are vaults with unimaginable entities that have been studied or are yet to be studied. The mechanism of movement is controlled by a set of neurons and any damage or injury to these nerves can cause grave diseases.

Motor neuron disease is a group of disorders and let us find out about them in detail.

Know more about Motor neuron disease

Motor neuron disease is a group of progressive neurological diseases that damage motor neurons, the cells that control eminent voluntary muscle activity such as walking, ingestion, speaking, etc.

Normally, signals from the nerve cells in the brain called upper motor neurons are transmitted to the nerve cells in the brainstem and spinal cord called the lower motor neurons. They then transmit them to the concerned muscles.

When there are interruptions in the signals between the lower motor neurons and the muscles, the muscles abstain from working properly. Due to a lack of movement, the muscles begin getting wasted and suffer uncontrollable twitching.

When there are disruptions between the upper motor neurons, the motions and the limbs become stiff with presentations of exaggerated reflexes.

Gradually with time, the efficacy to control movements is alleviated.

 

Different types of Motor Neuron Disease

 

Yes,  there are certain types of motor neuron diseases. They are :

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis
  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy
  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

Signs and Symptoms of Motor Neuron Disease

  • Pain in the muscles
  • Fasciculations
  • Weakness
  • Lethargic grip
  • Speech with slurries
  • Difficulty in movements
  • Eventually, this leads to paralysis

These are some of the presentations that are commonly seen in patients with motor neuron disease.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Motor Neuron Disease

Ayurveda bases all its interpretations on doshas. After extensively studying the causes and symptoms of diseases, the scholars of Ayurveda explain its manifestation due to the concerned dosha.

Here in MND, it is believed to occur due to the vitiation of vata dosha that happens because of its blockage by other doshas, pitta, or kapha (predominantly kapha dosha)

Therefore, MND can be considered a vata vyadhi.

 

How can Ayurveda manage Motor Neuron Disease

As MND is a vata-predominant disease, treatment to pacify vata along with the pacifying of blockage that causes the disease is the treatment principle that is applied. The below-mentioned treatments can be administered :

  • Eliminatory procedures
  • Enema (vasti)
  • Sudation procedure
  • Rasayana (rejuvenative) procedures using herbs like ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)  and formulations like chyawanprash etc
  • Nourishing therapies to assist the growth of depleted muscles

 

These are some of the methods that can be adopted that may vary according to the symptoms produced and the health status of the patient.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is MND ?
Motor neuron disease is a group of progressive neurological diseases that destroy motor neurons, the cells that control essential voluntary muscle activity such as waking, ingestion, speaking, etc.

Normally, messages from the nerve cells in the brain called upper motor neurons are transmitted to the nerve cells in the brainstem and spinal cord called the lower motor neurons. They then transmit them to the concerned muscles.

When there are disruptions in the signals between the lower motor neurons and the muscles, the muscles do not work properly. Due to a lack of movement, the muscles begin getting wasted and suffer uncontrollable twitching. When there are disruptions between the upper motor neurons, the movements and the limbs become stiff with presentations of exaggerated reflexes. Gradually with time, the efficacy to control movements is alleviated.
