Multiple Sclerosis – Diagnosis and Treatment through Ayurveda

The incidence of neurological illnesses has increased globally as a result of poor diet, poor lifestyle, and genetic reasons. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune condition in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues.

What Causes Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple sclerosis causes are unknown. Doctors still are unsure about the exact cause of multiple sclerosis. The possible causes of MS can be:

  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Infectious agents, such as viruses
  • Environmental factors
  • Genetic factors

Multiple Sclerosis Types
There are 4 main types of MS. The classification of Multiple Sclerosis disease depends on its activity and progression.

  • Clinically isolated syndrome (CIS)
  • Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis
  • Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms

  • Numbness
  • Tingling sensation
  • Weakness
  • Vision changes
  • Paralysis
  • Vertigo
  • Lack of coordination of limbs
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vision changes/vision loss
  • Muscle Spasticity
  • Bladder/bowel problems
  • Stuttering / slurred speech

The disease impairs communication between the brain and body as well as inside the brain. The disorder may result in nerve degeneration or irreversible injury. The degree of nerve damage and the affected nerves determine which signs and symptoms of MS are present. While some people may be only mildly affected, some people may lose the ability to see clearly, write, speak, or walk. So, a proper multiple sclerosis diagnosis is important.
For any disease, the correct and in-depth diagnosis is of utmost importance. It applies to Multiple Sclerosis too. The standard procedure for doctors is to start their diagnosis with a thorough physical examination and analysis of previous medical history. The diagnosis will also include the use of diagnostic imaging procedures such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and blood tests. After diagnosing, physicians provide the appropriate treatment methods to ease the symptoms.

The Ayurvedic approach to treating multiple sclerosis addresses a number of issues, which includes strengthening the nerves as well as the psychological factors.
