अभ्यंग – तेल मालिश is important preventive care for Polio.
In Ayurveda, Polio is considered Vata Prakop पक्षाघात. It happens due to irregular food, indigestible food (like nonveg) in early age, irregular sleep, disturbed family environment due to failed marriage of parents or failed relation between parents and grand-parents, lack of sanitation, prolonged polluted air exposure, inborn Vata prkriti due to accidental birth** are some of the many causes that increases Vata in new born/infant/toddler.
अभ्यंग – तेल मालिश can also cure पक्षाघात.
**Accidental birth = produced by lust, sex during Vata prakop season and time.
