How does Ayurveda help to treat Parkinson's conditions?

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a complex multi-system, neurodegenerative disease. Though predominantly perceived as a motor disease, it also has debilitating non-motor features, which are frequently missed and not treated. In Ayurveda Parkinsonism is mainly known as Kampavata, which is a type of Vatavyadhi or Vata disorders. The Ayurveda treatment of Parkinson’s at AyurVAID focuses on Vata disturbance and aims to achieve a state of balance through herbal medicines, therapies like Panchakarma, and rehabilitation through diet and exercise.

AyurVAID Approach for Parkinson's Disease

AyurVAID treatment focuses on treating the most prominent symptoms of Parkinson’s such as slowness, stiffness, tremors, and balance issues.

Parkinsonian disorders (parkinsonism) can be classified into two major groups: Primary parkinsons, Atypical Parkinson’s, and Secondary – which are acquired forms such as Drug-induced Parkinsonism and Vascular Parkinsonism.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the main cause of Parkinsonism?
Parkinson's disease is caused by a loss of nerve cells in the part of the brain called the substantia nigra. Nerve cells in this part of the brain are responsible for producing a chemical called dopamine. Parkinson's often starts with a tremor in one hand and slowly progresses.
How successful is Ayurveda in managing Parkinson's?
Ayurveda has been very successful in managing Parkinson's, though no complete cure is found in any system of medicine. Through the above-mentioned procedures, proper administration of medicines, cleansing therapies, a healthy lifestyle and diet, yoga, and pranayama, the symptoms can be curbed to a great extent. The quality of life is almost restored, and the patients were found to be easily engaging in activities they found impossible before.
Is Parkinson's only seen in older people?
No. Though the common age of onset is 60, there have been reported cases of patients from the age of 40. As a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, it tends to progress with age. If the age of onset is young, the disease is said to be more severe.
Who is more vulnerable to the disease? Males or females?
Males are about 50 percent more susceptible to being affected with Parkinson's. The reasons are not clear yet, but the incidence in females is comparatively less. There are theories that cite the influence of estrogen in Parkinson's as the reason for the same.
Can Parkinsonism go away completely with Ayurveda?
In most cases, people with Parkinson's disease will need long-term treatment to manage their symptoms. However, in some cases, a state of potential remission is observed. It is not about tremors alone, it is about restoring the movements back to normal which is possible with Panchakarma.
