Epilepsy is a group of non-communicable neurological disorders that are identified by vigorous shaking due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. These types of vigorous shaking may lead to physical injuries like breaking of bones or some accident. In epilepsy, seizures recur from time to time, which occurs due to abnormal neuronal activity in the cortex of the brain. The reasons for epilepsy may be varied, like brain injury, stroke, brain tumors, infections of the brain or some birth defects.
“Apasmara” is the term for epilepsy in Ayurveda. This can be manifested due to imbalance in doshas and with respect to doshas vitiated, epilepsy is categorized as Vataja seizures, Pittaja seizures, Kaphaja seizures, and Sannipatika seizures. The reasons for seizures may be consumption of unhealthy food, long term grief, subconscious fear, unethical celebrations, debilitated mind or imbalanced doshas.
The line of treatment for epilepsy follows detoxification by Panchakarma procedures, purgation, emesis, nasal medications, psychological assistance, etc. Special herbal formulations are provided to balance the vitiated doshas and release the toxins accumulated in channels and rejuvenation therapy. The holistic approach of treating epilepsy helps in complete reversal of the condition.
The treatment line for epilepsy in Ayurveda follows following procedures:
Along with this line of treatment, a diet and exercise plan is given in order to avoid further vitiation of dosha that will contribute to the condition and avoid any occurrence of seizures in future.
“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”
“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”
