Dr. Vamshidhar Allam, Consultant Ayurvedic Specialist
Dr Vamsidhar said that it is not a disease but a medical condition and every 4-8 individuals in a lakh population suffer from it. The frequency of the TN symptoms varies with causation and also with the age. In the initial stage of these conditions, the intensity is severe but the frequency is less. As the age of the patient progresses and the condition becomes chronic, the intensity will be same but the intervals between the episodes become less. Which means the symptomatic episodes becomes frequent.
The treatment for TN in Ayurveda is promising and much better than any other medicinal systems based on the pathological studies. The treatment approach in Ayurveda is mainly of two type – oral medication and panchakarma treatment. Panchakarma is taken up based on the condition of the patient.
