Ayurveda for Neurological Disorders: Understanding Dosha Imbalance and Healing with Ayurvedic Practices

Neurological disorders affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves - collectively responsible for controlling the entire body. These disorders can lead to a range of issues, including difficulty in movement, speech, swallowing, breathing, memory, senses, or mood. With over 600 different neurological diseases, finding an effective solution can be challenging. However, Ayurveda has been known to help with disorders of the neurological system.

Understanding Dosha Imbalance and Its Connection with Neurological Disorders

In Ayurveda, it is believed that most neurological disorders are caused by an imbalance of the Vata Dosha - responsible for all movements in the body. It is essential to maintain balance between the three Doshas (Pitta, Vata, and Kapha) to have a healthy nervous system.

When one of the Doshas is out of balance, the functions of organs may be disrupted, leading to various diseases. To restore balance, Ayurvedic practitioners determine what Doshas are unbalanced and then start the healing process to restore the body's natural proportions.

Ayurvedic Practices for Healing Neurological Disorders

An important aspect of restoring the natural state and optimal function of organs in Ayurveda is the purification of accumulated toxins from the body. Ayurvedic treatment involves massages, herbal baths, and the use of oils to rehydrate the body. Additionally, meditation and yoga, including specific asanas and exercises, can be helpful.

Ayurvedic Advice for the Health of the Neurological System

Neurological diseases, unless they have a genetic predisposition, are often contributed to by an improper diet and lifestyle choices. Ayurvedic advice for maintaining a healthy nervous system includes consuming heavier, more oily, and liquid dishes that are freshly prepared and have a salty or sweet taste.

Basmati rice, wheat, quinoa, and oats are recommended foods, while corn, rye, barley, and millet should be avoided. Drinking a cup of milk with turmeric before sleep can also be beneficial.
