According to Rasa Shashthra, Parkinson’s disease is caused by “Vatha”. Generally most of the people suffer from some kind of affliction. Some people sometimes realise that they are not healthy only when some sickness emerges. Certain sicknesses develop very slowly and take time to become full blown. According to the wisdom of Eastern Medical Therapy, Vatta, Pitta and Kapha are the root causes of all ailments.
Parkinson’s disease has a history of more than 5000 years. It was called by “Kampa Vayu” by Estaren Medical Practitioners. The disease is named after the English doctor James Parkinson, who published the first detailed description in An Essay on the Shaking Palsy in 1817. The most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, cognitive and behavioural problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease. As the disease progresses, a complication called Dyskinesia or involuntary writhing movements of body starts occurring.
Demographical analysis shows that people in middle ages mostly become victims of this disease. Especially those who are afflicted diabetic and suffering from disorders in the nervous system are prone to this disease. Today many people are going through untold hardship in search of a lasting cure.
