hello i will talk here about the ayurvedic message which is famed to cure Pakshaghat. Paksha means the limb and ghat means hurt. When the limbs stop functioning and are hurt then the disorder arises. In ayurveda this is said to be pure Vata disorder. In this case daily massage is strictly advised. Simple sesame oil, narayan oil, bala oil, karpasasthyadi oil can be used for the same. These oils penetrate through skin and improve muscle tone, which is lost. The patient is asked to lie down in a supine position. The massage is started to the affected part of the body. The idea behind is the oil straightly goes into the skin and starts functioning. The strokes should be on a one way and should not be done backwards. For instance if a hand is affected, one has to go from palm to shoulder and not come back from shoulder to palm. After completing the message, the steaming is done to the affected area with herbal decoction and sometime with medicated milk. At some places an enema is given with medicated material. This material is composed of oil, ghee, honey, roots of medicinal herbs, rock salt and many other ingredients as per the diseases and diseased.

Thank you Roop for penning down the ayurvedic message for pakshaghat. I would like to add the Paralysis or pakshaghat is caused due to the impairment of the central nervous system, or due to the impairment of the peripheral nervous system. Depending on where the paralysis has occurred, it can be classified in the following types:- Monoplegia, in which only one limb hand or leg is affected Diplegia, in which both the limbs are affected Paraplegia, in which both the trunk and the legs are affected Hemiplegia, in which only one side of the body is affected Quadriplegia, in which the trunk and all the four limbs are affected Ayurveda has recommended a lot of herbs for the treatment of paralysis. One herb is the Ashwagandha and it is prescribed for the treatment of paralysis due to its anti-vata properties.
