Hypothenar Eminence Fasciculations & Its Ayurvedic Treatment
Humans have more than 600 muscles in the body. Some muscles lift, some help to move and some of them are still. The muscles also help to digest food, to breathe and to see. The heart helps in pumping of blood which is essential to keep us alive. Overall muscles play 5 important functions in our body that are support, movement, protection, blood circulation and heat generation. Many diseases and injuries can affect how our muscles work. To maintain the strength of muscles and maintain healthy weight it is necessary to exercise and eat healthy regularly.

AYURVEDIC VIEW OF HYPOTHENAR EMINENCE FASCICULATIONS
As per ayurveda we can correlate this condition to vata pradhan mamsa vaha sroto dushti. Mamsa vaha srotas are the channels which include the muscular system of the body. So in this case these srotas get vitiated. The causes of vitiation of mamsa vaha srotas are consumption of food which makes the channels fragile and sticky, intake of dense meal, heavy to digest food and excessive sleep during the day time. Symptoms caused by vitiation of these srotas are swelling of muscles, wasting of muscles and clots in blood vessels which supply mamsa vaha srotas. When the vata dosha gets associated with mamsa vaha srotas then it leads to neuromuscular conditions. So to manage the Hypothenar Eminence Fasciculations it is necessary to relieve mamasa sroto dushti and to balance the vata dosha. For this purpose Planet Ayurveda provides you with the following formulations. Let’s have a look!!!!!
