Ayurvedic Remedies for Amyloid Polyneuropathy Disease


Amyloid Polyneuropathy also known as Familial Amyloid Polyneuropathy (FAP) is a group of hereditary amyloidosis that cause malfunctioning of sensory or autonomic functions of the body due to the deposition of amyloid protein in peripheral nerves. Polyneuropathy means the malfunctioning of many nerves simultaneously due to aggravated amyloid. The prevalence of Amyloid Polyneuropathy worldwide is not known. The death rate is high in prolonged cases. Treatment is essential for sensorimotor, autonomic, and visceral complications. Let us have a look and find out its causes and how it can be managed by Ayurveda.


Amyloid Polyneuropathy is caused due to deposition of amyloid proteins in the peripheral nerves. Amyloid is an insoluble protein that aggregates in blood vessels and nerves. Various amyloid proteins particularly cause disease progress. Amyloid proteins can aggregate in any vessel of the body example – amyloid deposition in cardiac muscles can cause cardiomyopathy, deposition of amyloid proteins in urinary/genital nerves can cause urogenital disorders, deposition of amyloid proteins in ocular nerves can cause ocular manifestations, and so on. Amyloid Polyneuropathy is a severe disease. It may include several manifestations altogether that make it difficult to handle. The chemicals used for its treatment may worsen other symptoms in the body. So here in this article, we will discuss some ayurvedic treatment methods that can help in managing these conditions naturally without any side effects.

Amyloid Polyneuropathy Disease

Ayurvedic Aspect

Imbalance of tridosha and the aggravation of toxins in the body cause neuropathies. The imbalance occurs due to improper lifestyle and food practices. This leads to Rakt dushti and Sira dushti (vitiation of body nerves and blood due to deposition of amyloid proteins). Oral herbal medicines and external therapies together are effective in the recovery of sensory and autonomic functions. Rasayan herbs are used along with particular medicines for symptomatic relief. Proper pathya apathya is indicated according to a person’s condition. Brihana drugs are used to nourish nerves from the inside and reduce the deposition of amyloid protein by initiating its excretion from the body, which will improve the overall condition of the patient. A proper detailed description of herbal medicines and their action on the body are discussed further in this article.


  • Most of the cases are seen arising genetically as its genes are autosomal dominant and cause mutations. Inherited Amyloid Polyneuropathy is caused due to mutation in proteins – TTR, Gelsolin, and apolipoprotein A1.
  • Not all Amyloid neuropathy is genetic however, some are caused by the deposition of paraprotein, lymphomas, and myelomas.

What is Isaac syndrome?- Symptoms Causes, diagnosis and Ayurvedic Treatment


Neuromuscular diseases are a group of diseases or conditions that adversely affect either the muscles or the nerves which control the muscles. There could be a variety of neuromuscular diseases. The severity of the disease and its effect on an individual will depend on various factors such as body type, age, genetic composition, etc. One such type of neuromuscular disorder is Isaac’s syndrome. Isaac syndrome is also known as neuromyotonia. Isaac syndrome causes uncontrollable muscle activity including muscle movements during sleep also. Progressive muscle weakness is one of the most common presenting features of neuromuscular disorders. Isaac syndrome along with its clinical features, diagnosis, and ayurvedic perspective, etc are  described in detail in the following article.


Isaac’s syndrome is also known as Neuromyotonia, Quantal squander syndrome, Isaacs-Mertens syndrome and Continuous muscle fibre activity syndrome. Isaac’s syndrome is a very rare neuromuscular disorder. This condition is marked by hyperexcitability and frequent firing of the peripheral nerve axons. The axons are responsible for the activation of the muscle fibres and hindrance to its normal state leads to the disturbance in normal muscle physiology. This will result in progressive muscle stiffness, diminished reflexes, accompanied with more frequent contractions or twitching of the muscles. The causes of Isaac syndrome will be discussed in the following content.


The exact cause underlying the condition of Isaac syndrome is yet not known. Various other health conditions are known to make the person more prone to the condition of isaac syndrome such as myasthenia gravis, lung cancer, tumours of thyroid gland, peripheral nerve disorders, guillain barre syndrome, severe infections, radiation therapies, etc. The Isaac syndrome will present various features which will be described as follows.


The clinical features or the symptoms of Isaac syndrome will vary from person to person but the most common features are as follows –

The person suffering from Isaac syndrome will experience frequent contractions of the muscles or  muscle twitching. There is continuous movement of muscle even during the night time. The stiffness of muscles and cramping is observed to worsen gradually as time passes. The patient experiences excessive pain in the muscles. This will lead to muscle loss gradually. There can be an increase or decrease in sweating also.

The gradual loss of muscles and stiffness leads to delayed reflexes and the patient faces difficulty in coordinating movements and walking. Increase in the calf muscle size can also be present. The patient will also observe a reduction in the weight of the body. The heart rate of the patients suffering from Isaac syndrome may be elevated. There could be numerous other symptoms that may be different for different patients.



The clinical evaluation of the condition of Isaac syndrome is very important. It can be diagnosed by observing the symptoms of the patient. Few diagnostic tests may be required to access the condition accurately and to rule out other conditions. The diagnostic tests are electromyography test (EMG), CT scan, MRI, etc.


The Modern Management of Neuromyotonia or Isaac syndrome includes the symptomatic management. This line of treatment may include anticonvulsants, oral corticosteroids, non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, etc. The modern science emphasises on the management of the symptoms and has no specific treatment for curing the condition of Isaac syndrome. While the ayurveda has a very unique perspective and management strategy which will be described as follows.


Isaac syndrome is a neuromuscular disorder according to modern science but Ayurveda has its own unique principles to understand the state of the body and disease. The imbalance in the levels of vata, pitta, and kapha is considered responsible for all the types of diseases. In the case of Isaac syndrome, vata imbalance is responsible for the neurological difficulties. Beej dushti and mamsa dhatu dushti can also be responsible for this disease. The cause of the condition may vary from patient to patient. The main line of treatment will include balancing the levels of vata dosha in the body. It will help to improve the pain and muscle twitching that the patient experiences along with the enhancement of proper functioning of the nervous system

Various methods are implied to rebalance the vitiated levels of vata dosha which includes restricting the vata aggravating factors from diet and lifestyle, panchkarma therapies, oral administration of ayurvedic herbs such as ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), moringa (Moringa oleifera), etc. Planet ayurveda prepares various herbal and ayurvedic formulations for improving the condition of the patients of Isaac syndrome which will be described as follows.
