Home Remedies for Cerebral Palsy

In this video, I’ll give you tips about : Home Remedies for Cerebral Palsy.

Cerebral palsy is a devastating movement disorder caused by disruptions in brain development, but there are a number of home remedies and natural treatments that can mitigate the symptoms, including the use of acupuncture, fish oil, echinacea, ginger, physical therapy, dietary therapy, peppermint essential oil and apple cider vinegar, among others.

Characterized as a disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture, cerebral palsy usually appears in early childhood or infancy. Most cases of cerebral palsy are caused by an interruption of brain development, resulting in impaired reflexes, insufficient muscle development, uncontrolled movements, balance issues and difficulty walking, along with a reduced range of motion due to joint stiffness. These issues can often get worse with age, but they can manifest in different levels of severity, often depending on the underlying cause of the condition. For example, some people with cerebral palsy are able to walk, but others cannot. Vision and hearing issues, going so far as blindness and deafness, may also be present in some cases, while other people are unaffected in this way. Perhaps most notably is the impact this condition can have on cognition, leaving some completely unaffected, while others show significant signs of cognitive impairment.

In terms of other symptoms, partial paralysis (on one side of the body), excessive weakness in certain muscle groups, difficulty walking, drooling, problems with swallowing and chewing, weak fine motor skills, eye muscle imbalance can also affect many people suffering from cerebral palsy. If you notice development issues with your child, you should immediately get him or her assessed by a doctor, and while there is no formal cure, there are a number of different strategies, therapies, medications and even surgical procedures that should be discussed with your doctor. The factors that can contribute to the development of cerebral palsy (causing the interruption of brain development) include genetic mutations, infections to the infant or pregnant mother, fetal stroke, oxygen deprivation to the brain, or an injury to the brain in the early years (bad falls or accidents). However, all of the details of cerebral palsy risk factors, potential complications, and formal treatment strategies are beyond the scope of this article. There are, however, a number of home remedies and lifestyle choices that can be made to lessen the impact of cerebral palsy and improve quality of life for those suffering from this disorder.
