Paralysis occurs when there is a problem in the nervous system and affects the muscular function. It can partially or completely affect the body and can affect anybody. Paralysis causes a loss of capability to move muscles. It is a condition in which the muscles don’t move properly or work efficiently, also known as Muscle function loss. Paralysis can affect any part of the body and often includes a feeling of loss in the affected area.
It can be both temporary and permanent, partially or complete, localized (only affects a specific area) or generalized (widespread).
Paralysis includes various types. Several types of paralysis are:
- Monoplegia (only affects one limb and hand or leg)
- Diplegia (affects both the limb)
- Paraplegia (affects trunk and legs)
- Hemiplegia (only affects one side of the body)
- Quadriplegia (affects trunk and all the four limbs)

Ginger is extremely useful in curing paralysis. Take 5 gram of ginger and grind it. Add this grinded ginger to 10 grams of Urad Dal (split black gram) and 50 grams of mustard oil and allow it to cook for 10 minutes. Add 2 grams of powdered camphor to it. Mix the oil well and allow it to cool. Apply this oil on the affected areas and you’ll experience relief within a few days. This oil is also beneficial for those who are suffering from Arthritis.
