Yoga and Naturopathy for Paralysis

Paralysis is a loss of muscle function in some part of the body. Paralysis can be localized or generalized, partial or complete, and temporary or permanent. Paralysis can affect any part of the body at any time in life. A paralysis accompanied by involuntary tremors is called Palsy.

Paralysis is most often caused by damage in the nervous system, especially the spinal cord. Other major causes are stroke, trauma with nerve injury, polio, cerebral palsy, peripheral neuropathy, parkinson’s disease, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and guillain–barré syndrome. Temporary paralysis occurs during rem sleep, and dys-regulation of this system can lead to episodes of waking paralysis. Drugs that interfere with nerve function, such as curare, can also cause paralysis.
