Paralysis Treatment


There is one entity in Ayurveda called as ” Hrid – Shula ” . The word Hrid derived from the original word Hridaya which means the Heart . Shula means pain . The meaning of Hrid – Shula is thus , pain in ( & around ) heart . The condition occurs due to increased or altered Vata Dosha in the heart & nearby area . As we know , the main force of movement of anything in any body system is controlled & done by Vata dosha . The indigested Meda Dhatu ( Cholesterol , LDL ) , Pitta dosha & Kapha dosha blocks partially or totally the normal route of vata dosha . Thus the Vata dosha gets altered too , creating pain at the Heart & nearby areas.

There are 5 types of each dosha . In all, each dosha accompanies the heart in some or the other way . When the dosha alters , some problem occurs as per the doshas.

These problems can be defined as follows : –
  • The Prana Vayu ( type of Vata dosha ) alteration shows exertional dyspnoea , cough , hiccups , drowsiness.
  • The Vyana Vayu ( type of Vata dosha ) alteration shows increased heart rate & swelling at ankle joints.
  • The Sadhak Pitta ( type of Pitta dosha ) alteration shows loss of confidence , scare , feeling of self heart beats.
  • The Avalambak kapha ( type of Kapha dosha ) alteration shows bigger heart ( cardian dialatation).
  • The Ojas alteration shows dizziness , coma , cyanosis.
