Paralysis is the Complete or incomplete loss of nerve function to a part of the body or the whole of the body. The part of the body that is affected loses its sensations or movements. Symptoms include Impairment of voluntary movements, Loss of sensation and Impairment of speech.
According to Ayurveda science, paralysis occurs when the Vata Dosha aggravates in the brain. Strenuous exercise, continuous exposure to stress, sleeplessness or obstruction of channels present in brain lead to aggravation of the Vata Dosha. Aggravated Vata Dosha can dry up the nerves with adverse affects on the opposite side of the body.
According to Modern medicine, contributory causes to paralysis include:
- Ischemic cerebral lesion, which is due to obstruction of blood vessels present in the brain with fat particles, blood clot, air bubbles or cholesterol plaque (atherosclerosis).
- Hemorrhagic cerebral lesion is due to hypertension (high blood pressure), aneurysm or trauma.
- The center affected by the lesion is responsible for the paralysis of the corresponding part in the body. Several risk factors are mentioned in western medicine as being possible predisposing factors to paralysis.
