Abstract

ROLE OF PANCHTIKTA KSHEERA BASTI IN THE MANAGEMENT OF MOTOR NEURON DISEASE (MND) – A CASE STUDY

Sharma Priyanka*, Dharua Km. Rajesh, Srivastava Kumar Alok, Shukla G. D. and Poonam

ABSTRACT

A Motor Neuron Disease (MND) is any of several neurological disorders that selectively affect motor neurons, the cells that control voluntary muscles of body. They include Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Progressive muscular atrophy, hereditary spastic paraplegia, and Progressive bulbar palsy and Pseudo bulbar palsy. They are neurodegenerative in nature and cause increasing disability and eventually death. It can affect any adult at any age but mostly seen above the age of forty. As modern medicine has limited disease modifying treatment, Ayurveda plays an important role in improving the condition of the patient. Tikta ksheer basti is one such treatment. As basti works through the nerve innervation theory and the intestines are highly innervated, tikta ksheer basti helps in sending signals to the brain. It innervates the nerve endings of the rectum and colon and activates the Autonomic nervous system and thus performs the act of excretion of vitiated doshas and malas, enhancing the patient’s condition. As Motor Neuron Disease can be correlated to Vata vyadhi, Tikta ksheer basti helps in srotoshodhana as well as it is Brimhana. A case study was conducted in which a patient with motor neuron disease was administered with tikta ksheer basti and showed significant improvement in symptoms.

Keywords: Motor neuron disease, Tikta ksheer basti, doshas, malas.
