Hypothenar Eminence Fasiculations and Ayurvedic Treatment


The hypothenar muscles are three groups of powers of the palm which is twitching in muscles. The integrity of the human hand is one of the factors apart from other animals and primates. The movement plays a significant role in the evolution of humans. Neuromuscular disease is a disease that usually affects the nervous system, the neuromuscular junction, and the skeletal muscle. It can be acquired or genetic. It is caused by autoimmune disorders which are genetic disorders, they are progressive in nature and result in the weakness of muscles and fatigue. Muscles are the soft tissues and there are more than 600 muscles in the body. Some muscles voluntarily control the nervous system of the body and some muscles are involuntary and work automatically such as in the digestive system. The muscles play a very important role in every system and in various functions of the body which help in pumping blood, digesting food, and getting rid of waste. In this article, we are going to discuss hypothenar muscle causes and its symptoms with its ayurvedic aspect in detail. 

Hypothenar Eminence Fasiculations


The word thenar means fleshy mounds which are associated with two thenars, located on the palmar surface of the hand. These thenar mounds are known as thenar and hypothenar eminence, the thenar eminence is the fleshy mound at the base of the thumb and hypothenar eminence is located at the base of the fifth digit (little finger). The hypothenar eminence is made up of four muscles but three are the primary muscles- Four muscles are abductor digit, the minimi muscle, the flexor digit minimi brevis muscle, the opponents’ digit minimi muscle, and the palmaris brevis muscle. The thenar eminence is developed from the mesoderm and ectoderm germ layer, the mesenchymal tissue forms the blood vessel which perfuses the hypothenar eminence. Arterial injury to the ulnar artery affects HT eminence due to insufficient flow of the blood which leads to Hypothenar hammer syndrome (this condition tends to affect the individual who works with tools not able to grip and repetitively pounding the tools). Proximal compression of the nerves shows some symptomatic changes in resting and active presentation of the hand, due to a decrease in the sensation and feeling of needles and pins sensation. HT eminence indicates a C8 spinal root lesion.

Ayurveda is a life science that deals with illness with herbs and minerals and carries dietary and daily regime management.  In ayurveda, there is tridosha (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) which is responsible for many neurological diseases. Mainly Vata dosha is associated with the neurological system such as numbness, pain, muscle twitching, and tingling sensation. In ayurveda, Hypothenar eminence fasciculation is compared with Vishwachi. Vishwachi is a vataja nanatmaja disorder that is characterized by pain in the upper extremities which is difficult in raising hands and emaciation of muscles of the hand.

Kidney Disease in Dogs and Its Treatment in Ayurveda


Kidneys are vital organs of the body. They maintain the fluid quantity in the body and excrete the harmful toxins out of the body. As humans other organisms also have the kidneys for the same functions. Dogs are a different species but the functioning of the body is very similar to that of the human body. The kidney in dogs helps in the balancing of the minerals in the body and removes the toxins out of the body.

In this text, we shall discuss kidney disease in dogs and also have a look at its management in the contemporary veterinary sciences and the management that helps in the same. Let’s get started!!

Kidney Disease in Dogs


Kidney disease is a disease that affects the basic unit of the kidney that gives rise to a number of symptoms with the emergence of hampering the functions of the kidney cells. In dogs, kidney disease is associated with the age of the same or in other words, the kidney disease is related to the wearing out of the tissue of the kidney. The occurrence of the emergence of kidney disease depends on the size of the dog. For the small dogs the condition can arise in about ten to fourteen years of age.

Ayurvedic Aspect and Management of Kidney Disease in Dogs

Ayurveda is an ancient/traditional medicinal system of India. Ayurveda has been serving mankind from the ages perfectly. Ayurveda has two main objectives. One is maintaining the healthy status of healthy individuals and treating the diseased ones. Ayurveda defines the best treatment as the treatment that does not give rise to another complications or disease while managing the one. So this is what Ayurveda is all about and the excellence of the same. Ayurveda focuses on healthy eating and living a life according to the season running.

Coming to the ayurvedic veterinary system, there is no such correlation of the veterinary system mentioned but with the expertise in the same some ayurvedic experts have dealt with a number of animal diseases so nicely and positively and have mentioned about the same in their texts and literature. They have discussed the anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and treatment of certain veterinary diseases.

In India, animals are worshipped as many animals are considered as the vehicles of God and Goddesses. So taking care of them is indeed obvious and that also serves the purpose of humanity.

The correlation of kidney disease can be well established with the vrikka dosha.  The condition is related to the vitiation of tridosha particularly pitta dosha that causes the inflammation of the kidney cells. The dushya are mutra (urine), rakta (blood), mamsa (muscle) and meda (adipose). The vitiated srotas are medovaha and mutravaha srotas.

The management of the condition depends on the pacification of the pitta dosha. And cleansing the microchannels of that are blocked due to the vitiated kapha dosha.

The ayurvedic medicines that are effective in kidney disease are chandraprabha vati, shilajit, gokshuradi guggulu, vasttamayantaka ghrita, shilajit lauha, brihatyadi kashyam, amalaki rasayan, shatavari churna, trivrit lehya, triphala churna etc.

Kidney disease is a quite common and serious disease that is found in the elderly dogs. Therefore, the relationship between the age of the dogs and development of serious kidney disease is well established. Though the exact cause of the same is unknown but various infections and faulty diet leads to the accumulation of toxins in the kidney which with time causes the kidney to swell and hamper the functions of the organ. The management in the contemporary veterinary system is not so satisfying and the prognosis remains poor. Coming to the ayurvedic management, the condition can be managed with the anti-inflammatory, regenerative, diuretic, antimicrobial, toxin removing and antioxidants properties of the herbs and herbal formulations.
