Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the brain and spinal cord in which the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. In Ayurveda, multiple sclerosis is associated with the diseases caused by increased Vata dosha. The functions of the brain and nerves are carried out through this dosha, and its energy imbalance leads to disturbance in their functions.
