Tetany - modern and Ayurvedic view of treatment

Tetany is a neurological condition characterized by muscle spasms, which can be painful and accompanied by a feeling of tension in the muscles. The main symptoms of tetany include increased irritability of the nervous system, which can lead to muscle spasms, convulsions or even loss of ability to control body movements.

Causes of origin

According to modern medicine, the causes of tetany may include a lack of calcium, magnesium or vitamin D in the body, thyroid disorders, increased levels of carbon dioxide in the blood and metabolic disorders.

From the point of view of Ayurvedic medicine, tetany is considered a condition that arises as a result of an imbalance in the doshas, especially in the Vata dosha. In Ayurveda, it is believed that each individual has his own constitution, called Prakriti, which is determined by the proportional representation of the three doshas in the body: vata, pitta and kapha.

The causes of tetany from an Ayurvedic point of view can be diverse, but they are mostly associated with the occurrence of an excessive amount of Vata dosha in the body. Excessive Vata dosha can lead to an imbalance in the nervous system and a disturbance in the flow of energy in the body. This disturbance can cause increased irritability of the nervous system and cause muscle spasms and tetany.

Vata dosha imbalance can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  1. improper diet: eating foods that increase Vata dosha, such as cold, dry or irritating foods

  2. lack of sleep and irregular lifestyle: insufficient rest and irregular lifestyle can worsen the imbalance in the nervous system and increase the risk of tetany

  3. stress and emotional stress: emotional stress and stress can increase Vata dosha activity and contribute to tetany

  4. excessive physical load: excessive physical activity or exercise without adequate rest can cause muscle spasms and tetany

For these reasons, it is important to lead a balanced lifestyle and follow the rules of Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle to maintain balance in the doshas and reduce the risk of tetany.

At the same time, it is important to minimize stress and anxiety, which can worsen the symptoms of tetany.
