By Dr. Sonia Gupta, Homeopathy,
Tremors and Paralysis are not diseases but rather are the manifestations of symptoms or a result of an underlying medical condition. The underlying condition is in most cases is a dysfunction of the nervous system. The neurological disorder affects brain activity thereby disrupting muscle movement and function.
- Tremors- are the rhythmic and uncontrollable movement of the limbs. They occur when the brain or the part of the brain responsible for motor functions are unable to control the muscles. Tremors are a major symptom of serious neurological disorders which include various degenerative neurological diseases, multiple sclerosis. They might also result from the use of drugs such as corticosteroids, amphetamines etc.
- Paralysis- is the partial or complete loss of muscle function. When the brain is unable to transmit impulses to the muscles, they lose their nerve and motor function. The most common cause of paralysis is a traumatic injury to the spinal cord. However, it might also be caused by an underlying medical condition. These include autoimmune diseases like Guillain-Barre syndrome, nerves diseases like Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Bell’s Palsy, a neurological disorder that affects the cranial nerve can cause the paralysis of the facial muscles.
Role of Homeopathy
One of the guiding principles of homeopathic treatments is to treat the disease at its root cause. Treatment for neurological diseases involves corrective measures taken to improve brain and nerve activity. It also aims to prevent further degeneration of the nerves, muscles and brain’s tissues. Since most neurological conditions are a result of compression or injury to nerves, homeopathy aims to improve and strengthen nerve function.
It also helps improve muscle movement and flexibility. It helps relieve muscle rigidity and improves range of movement. Self-medication is harmful in such cases. Treatment should be underthe guidance of good homeopathic practioner only.
Neurological disorders can have debilitating results. They can make even the most mundane of daily activities extremely painful. Homeopathy helps relieve these symptoms of pain and helps you conduct your routine tasks smoothly.
Safe and effective, homeopathy offers both corrective and preventive measures to treat neurological conditions.
