Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune condition that weakens the communication between the nerves and muscles of the body. This causes weakness and tiredness in the skeletal muscles of the body. Muscle weakness leads to symptoms like drooping eyelids and double vision, slurred speech and impaired speech, and difficulty climbing stairs and lifting objects. Although there is no cure for myasthenia gravis, various treatment options are available to manage its symptoms.

Ayurvedic Treatments for Myasthenia Gravis

Ayurveda takes a holistic approach towards the management of Myasthenia gravis. It has several natural remedies that are believed to be beneficial including:

Ashwagandha: A herbal adaptogen aimed to reduce stress and enhance overall health by boosting the immune system, potentially reducing the symptoms of myasthenia gravis.

Panchakarma: Panchakarma is a cleansing therapy in Ayurveda that involves a series of treatments to purify the body and eliminate toxins. It is believed to help with various health problems, including neurological disorders.

Ayurvedic therapies for Myasthenia gravis work towards improving muscle strength. These include Snehapana (internal administration of medicated ghee), Svedana (steam therapy), Nasya (nasal drops) and Vasti (enema). Lepana or the application of medicated pastes are also advised to improve muscular functions. Adopting adequate dietary and lifestyle modifications help delay the progression of the disease.

It is important to note that remedies and their effectiveness can vary from person to person. If you have myasthenia gravis, it is always advisable to consult a healthcare professional before starting any new treatments, including Ayurvedic remedies.
