Nerve Disorders Types
Several types of neuropathy can have an impact on nerve health. Mononeuropathy refers to nerve damage to only one nerve. Multi-mononeuropathy refers to nerve damage that affects two or more nerves. Polyneuropathy occurs when nerve injury affects many nerves.

Neuropathy of this type can affect the feet, legs, arms, and hands.

Ayurvedic Approach to Nerve Health
Nerve disorders, according to Ayurveda, are caused by imbalances in the three doshas. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are the three doshas in the human body.
The Vata dosha is in charge of the normal functioning of our nerve system and movement. As a result, when the Vata is out of balance, it can cause nerve disorders such as anxiety, depression, and stress.
This can also occur as a result of a lack of nutrition and excessive junk food consumption. A Vata shift can also be caused by external environmental causes.
Excess Vata can cause an increase in toxin accumulation. To maintain your nerves healthy, it’s critical to drain the toxin buildup, and Vata should be optimised.
Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to improving nerve health.
Ayurvedic herbal tonics can function on tissue levels, assisting in nervous system wellbeing.
