Alternative Treatment For Polymyositis With Herbal Remedies


The disease is also known as myopathy. The disease is seen maximum in above 18 years of adults and it is more common in females. Most people above 31 to 60 are mostly affected. The skeletal muscles are more affected than others and that's why the patient is unable to walk properly and feels difficulty in doing daily routine work. So today's topic is very important and in order to know more about this disease let us discuss this disease in detail.


It is a type of muscle disorder in which the muscle gets weaker. It may be an ongoing chronic disease because as the patient feels lethargic they ignore the signs and symptoms and get busy doing daily routine work. In this disease the muscles of the trunk area are more affected than hips, thighs and shoulders. The disease mostly affects the both sides of the trunk area and after a long period of time they get worse. Let's proceed further and see what ayurveda has to say about this!


Ayurvedic Aspect

Vata is said to be the strength of the body and vata is life , vayu is very good for health and promotes the movements of the body but if it gets disturbed the movements of the body get restricted and show various kinds of symptoms like this disease. If vata dosha moves in the wrong path of the body the body function is unbalanced and life will get short. The vata dosha gets disturbed due to the consumption of rough and cold food, excessive blood donation, excessive exercises, falling down and injury. These all are the vata dushti causes and show very dangerous effects to the body. The increased vayu dries the small channels of the body and shows first symptoms like stiffness of the joints and muscles. So we can correlate this condition with vata dosha janya mamsa vaha srotas dushti.


The exact cause of this is yet unknown and is correlated with malabsorption. But it depends upon the lifestyle and consumption of food. The suppression of urges is one of the most popular known causes for increasing vata.

Sign And Symptoms

As we read earlier, most of the muscles of the trunk are affected which shows muscle weakness of joints, shoulder, neck etc. Even polymyositis affects the peripheries also. The patient looks very lethargic and lean.

Risk Factors

The disease of muscles and joints like rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma are very high risk factors which aggravate the signs and symptoms of polymyositis.


The patient feels difficulty in swallowing the food, while in inspiration and expiration the chest muscles get pain, weight loss and malabsorption is one of the common complications.


The diagnosis of this disease is very easy. Only the physical examination is very helpful in diagnosis.


The increased vata dosha is well treated by Basti karma because basti (enema) is one of the choices of treatment to pacify vata dosha and patient should be on regular diet like cow ghee in daily routine, meat soups, meat of aquatic animals, shatavari and ashwagandha should be in regular in use as medicine.
