Treatment of Periodic Paralysis in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies


Periodic paralysis syndrome is a collection of uncommon muscle illnesses that may be inherited (genetic) or caused by a spontaneous mutation in a person’s genetic composition. Hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (hypPP) and normokalemic periodic paralysis are two of the seven to eight forms of periodic paralysis syndromes. Medications and dietary modifications may be used to treat your condition, depending on the kind of syndrome you have. You’ll learn about Ayurvedic medicine in this post.


Periodic paralysis (PP) is a rare inherited disorder that affects a tiny fraction of the population. Muscle weakness, stiffness, or paralysis may strike without warning. It’s possible that the whole body or only one or two limbs are afflicted. PP is available in a wide range of sizes and forms. All of them have ion channel deficits at their core. These gateways may allow charged minerals like salt and potassium to enter and exit your cells. This ion flow is necessary for your muscles to operate properly. In PP, ion channels may malfunction, resulting in muscle cell dysfunction.

Ayurveda claims

Pakshaghata is an Ayurvedic term that refers to “paralysis of one side of the body,” with “paksha” referring to either half of the body, and “Aghata means paralysis” referring to deterioration of physical movements and mental wellbeing.

Periodic Paralysis

What causes your body to get paralyzed now and then?

Genetic issues cause all of the various types of PP. Ion channel faults are caused by these issues. Ion channels regulate how charged minerals (ions) including potassium, sodium, and calcium enter and exit muscle cells.

The interior of every muscle cell is covered by a coating or membrane. When your nerve instructs your muscle cell to contract, it sends a chemical signal to open a gate that allows sodium ions to enter the cell. The electrical charge inside the cell is altered by the influx of charged ions. A current wave is created in the muscle fiber as a result of this. Calcium ions leak from cells’ sacs, causing muscle fibers to contract. Potassium channels open and potassium ions are released from the cell. Muscles contract as a result of this.

PP may be caused by a variety of problems. These ion channels are affected by sodium, calcium, or potassium.


Depending on the kind of PP you have, your symptoms may differ. Symptoms may appear as early as infancy or as an adult. Attacks may occur often or seldom. As individuals become older, they have fewer attacks in various types of PP. Symptoms of PP include:

  • Muscle twitching may last anywhere from a few minutes to many days.
  • Muscle cramping
  • Muscle discomfort and spasm
  • Tingles on skin
  • Permanent infirmity, which is more likely to occur later in life


Family history, typical symptoms, diagnostic tests, muscle biopsies, muscle chilling and/or muscular training, and recurrent electrical nerve stimulation; and, in certain cases, provocative testing are used to identify periodic paralysis syndrome. The following are some more pieces of evidence that support the diagnosis:

  • Creatinine phosphokinase levels in the blood, potassium levels, and ECG tracings that are all elevated
  • Nerves are electrically stimulated repeatedly (electrodiagnosis)
  • The afflicted muscles are cooled to 20 degrees Celsius (68F)
  • Testing by use of exercises
  • Examination with a needle electrode (examination of electrically caused muscle contraction).
  • Biopsies of muscle
