CVA- Cerebro vascular Accident-Hemiplegia-Sign-symptoms
What is CVA? Is it a disease?
CVA- Cerebro vascular Accident is an accident rather than a disease. It occurs inside the brain. Its effect is observed around the body through paralysis.
What happens inside the brain?
It occurs due to short supply of Oxygen to the brain cell. Short supply takes place due to hemorrhage (arterial breakage) or infarction caused by embolism (arterial blockage) or ischemia of artery (narrowing). Due to short supply of Oxygen a sudden death of brain cells takes place. Subsequently they lose their function and command over the peripheral nervous system. Also the spilled blood gets accumulated in the brain and creates pressure on brain cell. Commonly this is called stroke. The doctors call it CVA- Cerebro vascular Accident.

The clenching power of teeth, squeezing power of eye, blowing power of mouth come down. Speech gets impaired. Uncontrolled salivation, urination, bowel insufficiency are also observed.
What happens in the mind?
Patient goes hysteric or emotional. He forgets many things temporarily. He cannot identify his children, recall their name, the ATM pass word, his date of birth etc. He recollects his good time, compares with presence and becomes sad. He seeks the presence of all the nears and dears. He cries, sheds tear. He gets angry with little wrong reason.
Don’t waste time-
After the patient gets discharged from the modern medicine hospital he should be shifted to the Ayurvedic hospital for treatment. The Ayurvedic treatment for CVA includes many treatment programes like Medicine, Pancha karma treatment, Yoga and Exercise. Out of these Panchakarma plays a vital role in the management of CVA. The earlier the patient takes the pancha karma treatment the better he gets the result.
