Ayurvedic treatment for cerebral palsy

Proper long-term care with the appropriate medical care team is a must to treat cerebral palsy. An ayurvedic touch can help resolve the signs or symptoms and reverse the brain damage. Medhya, a group of herbal medicines can be used to regenerate the damaged brain cells. This would bring back the functioning capacity of the brain. Brahmi, Mandukparni, Shankhpushpi, Jyotishmati, Kushmand, Ustukhudoos, Yashtimadhuk, Ashwagandha, Shatavari, Guduchi, Vacha, Haritaki, Abhrak-Bhasma, and Suvarna-Bhasma are considered to be the herbal medicines that can be used. It is believed that some of these medicines can be used to reduce convulsions.

Certain medicines would help improve the condition of the majja dhatu or the tissue. The medicines that help with the tissue would include Guduchi, Amalaki, Musta, Panch-Tikta-Ghrut-Guggulu, Pancha-Gavya-Ghruta, and Brahmi-Ghruta. There are a few more medicines that could be used to help improve majja dhatu, such as Yograj-Guggulu, Kaishor-Guggulu, Vatagajankush-Ras, Tapyadi-Loh-Ras, Mahavat-Vidhwana-Ras, and Vish-Tinduk-Vati. 

The herbal oils such as Mahanarayan oil, Sahasaindhav oil, and Mahamash oil can be used to massage the entire body. This would help improve the movements, bodily postures, and balance. Shirodhara and Shirobasti are certain specialized panchakarma procedures that are considered to be useful and make the condition better.
