Diagnosis And Myasthenia Gravis Treatment In Ayurveda

The doctors carry out physical exams and check the medical history of the patient. There is also a series of neurological exams that include checking reflexes, weakness in muscles, checking muscle tonining, ensuring proper eye movement, and several other tests.

Ayurveda explains Myasthenia Gravis as the vitiation of Vata and Kapha dosha at the site of muscles. The specific dosha vitiation leads to several complications. Ayurvedic treatment for Myasthenia Gravis provides adequate relief in all the symptoms, improves daily lifestyle quality, and improves muscle growth and health. It suggests Panchakarma therapies such as Abhyanga, Nasya, Kizi Swedan, Shalishashtik Swedan, and Vasti. These therapies help improve nerve-muscle coordination by removing toxins from the body. It is an effective and proven natural treatment for myasthenia gravis. Its therapies and medication treat the disease in a natural way and help the patient recover without any side effects.

The Panchakarma therapies used in the process are helpful in relieving the symptoms and myasthenia gravis management.

Diet And Lifestyle Changes

Fast food, junk food, refrigerated foodstuffs, mental stress, and non-compatible foods will generate toxins in the body, and the patient should avoid them. If you want desired results from myasthenia gravis medicines then you will need to stick to the revised diet and lifestyle pattern. There is no alternative to that. As for the lifestyle changes, the patient must learn to get plenty of rest and not exert in any way. The patient must avoid extra exposure to heat or stress as both leads to worsening of symptoms. These changes will not treat the problem but will help in alleviating the symptoms.

Types of Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia Gravis is typically divided into four types

Congenital Myasthenia Gravis

It is defined by its cause - the genes. The patient inherits the disease-causing genes from their parents. Unlike the other types, it is not an autoimmune disorder. But it is a rare condition.

Transient Neonatal Myasthenia Gravis

It happens to infants who are born out of mothers with myasthenia gravis. The infant may develop the symptoms within 48 hours of birth but if treated rightly the symptoms may disappear within a few days or weeks.

Generalized Myasthenia Gravis

In this case, muscular fatigue and weakness is not limited to one part but spread all across the body. Approximately ten per cent of MG patients suffer from generalized myasthenia gravis. It is a serious problem that may make involuntary bodily functions like breathing difficult.

Ocular Myasthenia Gravis

In this type of myasthenia gravis, the patient slowly loses control over eye muscles. The eyelids muscles are weakened because of which the person experiences the problem of drooping eyelids. In some cases, it is the eye movement that is affected which results in double vision. This type of MG remains local to the eyes and does not spread to other parts of the body.

The Benefits of Ayurveda for Myasthenia Gravis treatment at Prakash Nethralaya

Investigates The Root Cause

The Ayurvedic approach to illness looks for the fundamental causes of the disease rather than symptoms. The main causative factor of the disease is removed from the patient's daily routine. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment is decided from the available two directions as per the classics. First one is Shodhan (detoxification) to clean the body with the help of Panchakarma therapies and the another is Shaman (balancing the doshas) by using Ayurveda medicines, diet correction and lifestyle adjustments. Detoxification with Panchakarma improves the efficacy of Ayurveda medicines in chronic and advanced cases.

Medicines Are Safe To Take

Ayurveda medications are not manufactured in a synthetic or chemical form but in their natural state. Because of this, the herbs are gentle on the body, and there is no chance of side effect or adverse reactions, regardless of the length of time the patient takes them. At Prakash Nethralaya, we use the best quality Ayurveda medicines to ensure the safest and fastest recovery. There is in house processing and dispensing of the medicines for our patients.

Uses Holistic Strategy

Ayurveda is based on the idea that each person has a distinct personality and body type and, as a result, their treatment. Ayurveda places more emphasis on treating the patient rather than treating the ailment. The physical composition of two different people with the same ailment may need a different therapeutic approach. An Ayurveda expert at Prakash Nethralaya uses this body type analysis and then reaches at a conclusion of diagnosis and the line of treatment. Accordingly our doctors prescribe the diet, lifestyle changes, yoga, Ayurveda medicines, and Panchakarma therapies.
