Neuropsychological Diseases Causes and Treatments

Common signs and symptoms include loss of muscle control, balance, speech problems, disturbances of vision and hearing, anxiety, fever, vomiting, stiff muscles, difficulty breathing, tingling or numbness in the hands or feet, numbness in the legs, and other problems affecting the muscles, the nerves, and the brain. 

There can be no diagnosis for these conditions if the patient is not able to describe them precisely. The symptoms may be so vague that it is sometimes difficult to determine whether the patient is imagining things or actually feeling them. The Ayurvedic treatment of these nervous system diseases is aimed at treating the basic pathology of the disease, preventing or reducing further damage to the nervous system, and preserving the nervous system.

Some of the most common nervous system diseases are Parkinson’s disease, also called Parkinsonism; Alzheimer’s disease, also called Alzheimer’s; Lou Gehrig’s disease, also called L Gehrile’s; and many others. These neurological diseases can be caused by a single event, or they can occur repeatedly, with each episode resulting in loss of bodily function. The causes of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease are unknown, while the causes of these other neurological diseases are well understood.

The Ayurvedic treatment of these nervous system diseases is aimed at treating the basic pathology of the disease, preventing or reducing further damage to the nervous system, and preserving the nervous system. Treatment used in these cases can be in the form of modifications in diet, medicinal regimens, and lifestyle changes. In cases of Parkinsonism, the first step is the use of anticholinergics or dopamine antagonists to block excessive electrical activity in the brain. In the case of Alzheimer’s disease, diet restrictions and increased fluid intake are administered.

A Tremor Or Loss Of Muscle Tone

One of the most common symptoms of Parkinsonism is a tremor or loss of muscle tone combined with loss of coordination. Other symptoms include rigidity, wasting, and a lack of balance, and clumsiness. People with neurological system diseases may also have seizures and may experience sudden, unpredictable fluctuations in vision. A variety of other symptoms such as depression, irritability, and speech problems may also occur. Because these patients’ motor functions are impaired, they often have difficulty performing simple tasks such as climbing stairs, using a toilet, or performing self-help tasks such as tying shoes.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects the central nervous system of patients with initial symptoms of an uncontrollable rigidity and tremor of muscles. MS is a progressive disease of the nervous system which results from the attack on the myelin sheath that provides insulation to nerves. The myelin sheath becomes damaged due to multiple sclerosis patients’ infections and inflammation. Multiple sclerosis patients and Parkinson’s disease are characterized by varying degrees of rigidity and wasting of muscles. Parkinson’s disease is currently the seventh most common form of non-traumatic encephalopathy.


Neuropsychological symptoms are frequently seen in patients with neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. Patients with one or more forms of these neuropsychological disorders often suffer from severe emotional and physical impairment, and can even become disabled. Some patients with neurological disorders develop self-destructive behaviors such as repeated suicide attempts. The majority of patients with cerebral palsy, or those with mental retardation, do not show signs of self-destructive behavior. However, they too can be severely affected by self-harm and suicide attempts.

People who have undergone surgery for neurological disorders are at an especially high risk for suicidal thoughts and attempts. People with these disorders can experience a devastating short-term memory loss and lapses of concentration and may cause themselves to harm themselves or others if they believe their condition is unbearable. In fact, people with these disorders often feel so depressed that they will resort to drastic acts of self-harm. Many of these disorders result from a breakdown of brain cells. There are three main articles that describe the three main causes of this disease: chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters, malfunctioning of cell communication pathways, and damage to brain cells.


Sufferers of these diseases will frequently visit their doctors, who will refer them to a specialist for evaluation and possible treatments. Neuropsychological disorders are extremely common; however, they are often difficult to detect due to the lack of behavioral and physical indicators. These diseases can have serious consequences for sufferers and their families. If you suspect that you or a family member may suffer from a neurological disease, please see your physician as soon as possible.
