Multiple Sclerosis MS Natural Treatments

Ayurvedic Insights: A Natural Approach to Multiple Sclerosis Care


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that affects the nervous system, especially the brain, spinal cord and the nerves. It is a chronic disorder that causes symptoms such as weakness of the muscles or paralysis, muscle stiffness, blurred vision and even blindness. Natural treatment for multiple sclerosis with the help of herbal remedies and Ayurvedic therapies like Marma Ayurvedic Massage, Shirodhara (Third Eye Drip), and Swedena (Herbal steam fomentation) may help offer relief from these symptoms.


Multiple sclerosis is caused due to the damage to the myelin sheath of the nerves as a result of which their ability to carry impulses is hampered. This condition is considered autoimmune in nature as it is triggered due to a faulty immune system that attacks the normal tissues like the myelin sheaths. The herbal remedies possess medicinal properties, which help to treat multiple sclerosis by correcting the abnormal response of the immune system and protecting the myelin sheaths.


The damage to the myelin results in the formation of a scar or sclerosis. Hence, Multiple sclerosis means the development of scar tissues called lesions or plaques in multiple nerves of the body. As the disease progresses, the lesions get worse resulting in the breakage of the nerve fibers.


The incidence of this disease is higher in the people between 20 and 50 years of age. The risk is higher in women than men. The environmental factors such as the exposure to the sunlight may play a role in determining the risk of occurrence of this condition.


The role of diet in the development of this disease is not known. However, Ayurvedic experts recommend following a dosha specific diet that could hasten the recovery and maintain the overall health and fitness of the patient.


Signs and Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis 


  • Urinary complaints such as a difficulty in emptying the bladder, increased frequency of urination, especially at night, and urge incontinence

  • Bowel problems like constipation and bowel incontinence

  • Loss of cognitive functions such as reduced memory and attention span, and speech impairment

  • Fatigue and reduced ability to perform routine activities

  • Vertigo and dizziness

  • Numbness and weakness in one or more limbs

  • Tingling sensation in some parts of the body

  • Spasticity and spasm of the muscles

  • Insomnia

  • Dry and rough skin

  • Tremors or involuntary quivering movements

  • Double vision and partial or total loss of vision


These symptoms primarily occur due to the inability of the nerves to transmit electrical impulses from the brain to the target tissues. Multiple sclerosis management using Ayurvedic remedies is aimed at preventing damage to the nerves, enhancing the ability of the body to repair the damaged tissues, and improving the functions of the nervous system.


Natural and Alternative Treatments For MS Symptoms


According to Ayurveda, multiple sclerosis like syspmtoms may occurs due to an imbalance in the Vata dosha that controls the level of activation and balance in the nervous system. This Vata imbalance could be responsible for causing most of the symptoms of MS including pain, insomnia, constipation, anxiety, fear, fatigue, poor digestion, dry or rough skin, and heightened sensitivity. The condition worsens due to the buildup of plaques around the affected nerves. Ayurvedic remedies managing MS symptoms naturally by balancing the imbalance vata, affected by such impurities and restoring the physiological balance within the nervous system.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
