*Vd. Bhausaheb B. Chattar and Vd. Raman Ghungralkar

ABSTRACT

Guillain- Barre syndrome (GBS) is an acute, frequently severe and fulminant polyradiculopathy that is autoimmune in nature. Guillain Barre syndrome is a rare disorder that causes immune systems to attack peripheral nervous system. Aim: To Manage a GBS case by an ayurvedic approach. Objective: To asses a symptomatic relief in GBS case. Methodology: A 54 yr. male patient, presenting with sudden onset of weakness of lower limb, unable to walk, stand, sit brought by relative in IPD of Podar Ayurvedic hospital, Mumbai. Previously patient admitted and treated in private hospital but did not show any sign of improvement. So patient was admitted and treated with ayurvedic treatment for 1 month. As per ayurvedic classics this condition can be correlated with vata disorder affecting lower limb of the body, which is dhatukshayajanya in nature. Hence the principle of the treatment is Brihan in nature. Brihan includes ayurvedic physiotherapy such asabhyanga, sastikasalipindasveda. Baladi kshir, ghrita, majja basti. And orally rasakalpa and various other ayurvedic drugs. Remarkable result was observed in the muscle power from zero to two in the lower and walking limbs. There is also improvement in sitting, standing. Conclusion: In this patient symptomatic relief is seen in one month, which is suggestive of beneficial effects of ayurvedic treatment.

Keywords: GBS, Abhyanga, Majjabasti, Sastikashali Pinda Sweda.
