How Does Our Guillain Barre Syndrome Treatment Benefit You?

Guillain Barre Syndrome is the onset of muscle weakness which is caused due to damage in the peripheral nervous system. In this condition a person may have initial symptoms like pain in back, muscle weakness in feet and hands often spreading to arms and upper body. In the acute phase of Guillain Barre Syndrome, people develop weakness of breathing muscles and thus, require mechanical ventilation. Further, acute Guillain Barre Syndrome may also lead to problems like blood pressure and abnormalities in heart rate, problem in bowel and bladder, blood clots and in some cases it may even lead to death.
In Ayurveda, Guillain Barre Syndrome is correlated with ‘Sarvanga gata vatavyadhi’. It manifests due to disorder in Vata dosha and affects the entire body. In this the body tissues are deprived of nourishment which leads to accumulation of Ama (toxins) in the cells and blocks the channels due to which the PNS is damaged. The insulating layer called as Myelin sheath, which is necessary for proper functioning of nerve cells, is destroyed due to vitiation in Vata dosha.
As Guillain Barre Syndrome is manifested due to improper nourishment, the treatment preferred is Santarpana chikitsa which involves entire nourishment of the body. External nourishment is provided by chandana balaksadi tailam abhyanga (oleation therapy) and sastikasalipind sveda (application of processed rice) which are administered along with karma basti. Along with these treatments, internal medications are provided to balance the vitiated doshas and eliminate toxins from the body. As root cause is addressed in the above line of treatment of Guillain Barre Syndrome, the condition is reversed in maximum cases.

Types of Guillain Barre Syndrome

  1. Acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (AIDP): In this condition, the body's immune system damages the insulated layer called myelin. This layer covers axons and promotes the proper transmission of nerve signals. When this layer is damaged, this transmission is hindered and causes symptoms like pain in the lower part of the body which then spreads to the upper part of the body.
  2. Miller Fisher Syndrome (MFS): In this condition, cranial nerves are damaged which extend from brain to neck. In this patients undergo paralysis which starts from eyes (ophthalmoplegia), and have problems in balance & coordination. 
  3. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN) and acute motor-sensory axonal neuropathy (AMSAN): In this the axons are destroyed due to poor immune system of the body. This disrupts the senses and individuals lose ability to sense the position of limbs and can have abnormal reflexes.


The treatment for Guillain Barre Syndrome involves following steps:

  1. Koshta shodhana – Gut cleansing
  2. Sarvanga abhyanga – massage of whole body with herbal oil
  3. Ksheera parisheka – Dripping of medical milk over body
  4. Shastika shali pinda sweda – rubbing of medicated oil poultice over body
  5. Saravanga annalepa – application of medicated rice over body
  6. Shirotala dharana – trans cranial drug administration by application of herbs over scalp
  7. Basti – trans rectal administration of medicines
  8. Oral medications

Besides this, procedures of panchakarma are also employed to cleans all the channels within the body and rejuvenate the cells.

Guillain Barre Syndrome Treatment, Naturally

Root Cause Treatment

“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.”

Wisdom of Ayurveda

“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.”

More Than Just Medicines

"Heal your body naturally with 5000-year-old knowledge of Ayurveda and Modern Science. From its authenticity, structured approach and personalisation play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended."
