Fight Muscular Disability With Ayurveda: DMD, BMD and LGMD

April 22nd, 2009 by Vikas Sharma Leave a reply »

Bhilai (Ayush Samiti): – Mamsagni Rasayana and modified Til-Mash Pinda Swedana may delay muscle damage associated with DMD, BMD and LGMD, according to research reported in Seminar on Neuro-Muscular Diseases organized recently by AMDS India in Bhilai. Muscular dystrophy is not a single disease but a group of hereditary muscle destroying disorders, vary in their inheritance pattern, age of onset, initial muscle attacked and rate of progression. It is no incurable condition; rather it is a genetic problem for which no satisfactory treatments have yet been found in any system of medicine. Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy is associated with severe, progressive muscle weakness and typically leads to death between the ages of 20 and 35 years. Absence of dystrophin causes the weakness and muscle wasting of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, as well as cardio-myopathies and cardiac failure, Dr. Mukesh Jain noted in correspondence with Ayush Samiti.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) affects about 1 in 3,500 males. Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) affects about 1 in 30,000 males although this may be an underestimate due to its variable severity. DMD and BMD are due to different changes in the dystrophin gene, which contains information for a protein that is important for muscle cells to work properly. This gene is located on the X chromosome.

Have you ever considered using Ayurveda and Yoga based techniques for management of complex diseases like muscular dystrophy? We wish to inform you of the promising results that we have achieved at our special clinic in treating the debilitating effects of muscular dystrophy using Ayurveda and Yoga based techniques. The Muscular Dystrophy programme being run at Sanjivani Hospital Bhilai, focuses on – (i) Reducing weight, (ii) Improving muscle tone and functional ability in patients using specific Panchkarma procedures, specially developed Rasayana supplement, and yogic support.

Ayurveda considers this condition as Mamsa-vata-kshaya related to beeja dosha and impairments of Mamsagni (muscle enzyme). It involves deranged Vata and subsequent degeneration of muscles and structures related to it. Ayurvedic treatment might slow or stop the progression of muscle degeneration. A combined strategy of Til-Mash Pinda sweda, Anuvasana Vasti, Mamsagni Rasayana and Yogic support is found effective in the long term management of muscular dystrophies.  So far we have treated Duchenne type, Bucker type and Limb-Girdle type of patients with very promising results such as (i) weight loss (ii) Decrease in blood CK level (iii) Relief in Pain and Stress (iv) Decrease in walking difficulty (v) Further check on muscle wasting and contractures. These results suggest that there is check on further muscle destruction.

The Ayush Muscular Dystrophy Society, a non-profit registered org, has been active in the field of authentic Ayurvedic supportive treatment and rehabilitation since 1995.  A number of families of afflicted children are registered with AMD society, which is involved in helping families with information about all aspects of NMD Including Ayurvedic and other complementary medical support, physiotherapy, diet, monitoring the breathing, and updates about what is new in the form treatments that may be in the pipeline.

  1. The Mamsagni Rasayana seems to be promising molecule. Since it was used along with Panch Karma Procedures and Yogic Support, the physiologic reasons for these important observations seem largely speculative, but “the reduction in blood CK along with improved functional neuro-muscular abilities certainly contribute to the protective effects of Mamsagni Rasayana” A more intense and focused molecular study of Til-Mash Pinda Swedana during Panch Karma procedures may also give us critical information to limit the sarcolemmal membrane defect in DMD/BMD boys. Kindly publish more information on NMD Seminar in Bhilai.
