No: It is possible to reduce the spasticity to a degree with medications, phyiscal therapy, different treatments like Botox injections, and some fancier treatments like implantable pumps to deliver anti spasticity medication. Unfortunately at this date we do not have a "cure" that can reverse paralysis. I hope we will someday. ...Read more

What are some alternate treaments for progressive supranuclear palsy (psp) like ayurveda, homeopathy or siddha?
PSP: With any of these other forms of medicine, you would need very skilled, experienced professionals to work with you alongside your conventional neurologist. Many conventional physicians are becoming trained in ayurveda and homeopathy -- i'm sorry, but i know little about siddha although this one originated in india like ayurveda. For homeopathic physicians, you can see: http://tinyurl.Com/lgsovco. ...Read more
What are some alternative treatments for progressive supranuclear palsy (psp) like ayurveda, homeopathy or siddha?
Collaborative care: Psp is a rare degenerative disease of the brain involving movement & balance as well as changes in mood, behavior and personality. Conventional medicine has no cure. Homeopathy does not treat the specific pathological condition, but can help the person by applying the single homeopathic medicine called for by his/her specific experience. You need a very well-trained homeopath to work with you. ...Read more
Neither will cure: Umbilical hernias in babies ; very young children mostly resolve on their own. Otherwise surgery is required to cure a hernia. Hernias are due to protrusion of tissue through a defect in muscle or fascia. Indirect inguinal hernias are due to failure of peritoneal protrusion to close spontaneously after birth. Trusses may temporize. Neither manipulation or any medication can correct hernial defects. ...Read more
Yes: Rsd ( reflex sympathetic dystrophy) or chronic regional pain syndrome is a poorly understood pain condition. I have treated many cases that resolve. The key is getting treatment early (usually within the first month). The treatment includes aggressive physical therapy, may include sympathetic nerve blocks as well as a variety of different medications to deal with the nerve pain that results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Muscle spasms in back for 6.5 years. Have tried muscle relaxers, NSAIDs, magnesium, massage, nothing has fixed. Is this issue neurological in nature?
I don't know: But there are other methods of approaching treatment. The body has amazing recuperative abilities. Have you seen a homeopathic practitioner? Homeopathy may offer some help as can acupuncture and chinese medicine. I would also look for a neuromuscular massage therapist. There is one in my area (florida) who is pretty amazing with many different problems. Diet changes can help too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tau protein D/O: No, tau protein deposits & neurofibrillary tangles in neurons cause the death of these cells. Because they are in some similar areas as parkinson's disease, psp can appear similar clinically, but there are clear differences. Treatment approaches are roughly the same with different areas needing most attention. Primarily balance/falls/injury, did inhibiting dementia & dysphagia/aspiration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Suffer from GAD and lately have been having a twitching right bottom eyelid for weeks. Does this sound benign or like hemifacial spasm?
Listen buddy: Rick, you are a smart person and you have insight. Millions of people have a twitchy eyelid. Hemifacial spasm is a grotesque, severe neurological illness.

Left eye has been twitching.1st the upper lid and now the lower,within a few wks.Could it be hemifacial spasm?I'm 22.If I blink fast, twitchingstarts
No worries : Eye twitching is common, & usually related to stress, lack of sleep, & overuse of stimulants like coffee. The fact that yours "traveled" makes it less likely to be a nerve disorder. Get plenty rest, get exercise, eliminate any stimulants for 2 weeks, & if no better, see your clinician. ...Read more
If someone develops hemifacial spasm in mouth and cheek, does it always spread up to eye or can it just remain in the lips?
Developed strong spasms in my lower lip and minor spasms in upper lip and cheek after facial paralysis post surgery 15 months. Hemifacial spasm now?
What can cause a hemifacial spasm in a 21 yr old? Had a left eye twitch for 2 months and now corners of mouth left side are starting to twitch
Twitching: Subtle twitching of the muscles of facial expression is not exactly the same as hemifacial spasm. The spasm is a significant, long lasting contraction of the muscles, which is painful. Twitching can be caused by fatigue, nervousness, an infection, or sometimes a history of a condition like Bell's palsy. Sometimes twitching of these muscles is entirely benign. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nobody cures it: It can be managed. I'd trust an evidence-based physician. If you are promised a cure through ayurveda, it probably won't happen. Remember psoriasis comes and goes. When it fails, the practitioner is likely to make an excuse. ("You ate GMO food.") There are comforting agents that a traditional practitioner may have for the skin. These can be adjuncts. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Don't throw the baby: Out with the bathwater. Or so the saying goes. Ayurveda may be a helpful adjunct but that doesn't mean that standard depression treatments should be stopped. Depression is sometimes best treated with combination of talking therapy and psychiatric medications (if indicated). Great adjuncts can include acupuncture, exercise, yoga, meditation, tai chi or qi gong. Good luck. ...Read more
It won't happen: Don't expect results. If you have male pattern baldness, and you want to treat it, get with a mainstream physician for medical or transplant Rx. If it's alopecia areata or telogen effluvium, it may remit on its own. Many men embrace their masculinity and genetics and focus on fitness -- do this and you'll look and feel great regardless of where there is and isn't hair. ...Read more

Could Ayurveda have any medicine to cure chronic hepatitis b or atleast lower the viral load drastically ?
Ayurvedic medicine: I am not an Ayurvedic practitioner. However, I do believe that many alternative therapies can have overall beneficial effects on a person's well being. This, in turn, may translate into better response to traditional treatments. I don't know if anyone can give a definitive answer to your question, but if a person feels calmer, better, with alt. therapies, this can only be a good thing! ...Read more
Hi, my age is 5"4 and age is 32 years and weight 70 kg...On medicine Ayurveda to cure pcos since rwo years..Need to loose weight atleast ten kg ...
Eat less & exercise: The key to losing weight is to eat less, but not all calories are created equal. Sugars & simple carbs from grains esp cause weight gain. I like dr. Furhman's diet: www.Drfuhrman.Com/library/foodpyramid.Aspx dr. Weil has useful info: www.Huffingtonpost.Com/andrew-weil-md/carbohydrates-weight-loss_b_1937312.Html- see his "discuss that" link in his article. Exercise is also important. Good luck! ...Read more
