Muscle twitching is fine involuntary movements in the small area of muscles. If it is present for few days and then occur at times does not indicate a major problem. But if it is associated with weakness, loss of sensation or wasting, it is due to the single neuron disease. Loss of sleep, anxiety and depression causes increase in the nerve impulses form the central nervous system or even the peripheral system. So Ayurvedic medicines can be taken to improve the sleep and reduce the depression.

Ayurvedic medicines like Divya Ashwagandharishtha, Divya Medha Vati and Brihat chagaladi ghrit - one tsp before food twice daily and can be taken for a month and then reviewed.

Ayurvedic treatments like oil massage, shirodhara, streaming oil and rice poultice are beneficial. Include milk, avocados, berries, olive oil, cinnamon, basil and garlic. Carbohydrates can be taken for natural tryptophans. Reduce excess oil, sugar, salt and cold refrigerated foods. Try to do exercises like walking or swimming or Yogasanas like Padmasana, Sukhasana, Savasana, supported Saravangasana, halasana and sirsasana which are beneficial. The exercise will help the insulin to transport the amino acid to the muscles which will increase the energy levels and promote sleep.

I, Sarit Sanyal will remain greatful to you. By your blessings and grace I got permanent relief from mental disorder. In 1996, my family consulted a psychiatrist for my mental problem, who wrongly diagnosed and treated my problem as schizophrenia. After that (almost 1 year) I got married but there was no end of my problem. I was under this treatment for almost 11 years (from 1996 to may 2007). Several times I tried to convince my family members that schizophrenia is not my problem but they were not ready to accept.

Lastly I consulted another psychiatrist on phone in December, 2007. When I explained my problem to him on phone he told me to meet him personally and also suggested that the way I am talking to him indicates that I don’t have such problem. Then I personally consulted him and he advised me to go through the E.E.G. and psychometric test. Next day on the basis of my tests results and clinical diagnosis (both) he confirmed that I am not suffering from schizophrenia, but my actual problem is depression and mental disorder. He further advised for the prolonged treatment and accordingly I started taking allopathic medicines as per his prescription. I took these medicines from December 2007 till August, 2008 and got positive response. In September., 2008, I went to your Patanjali Yog Kendra in Indore and consulted a Vaid ji over there. As per his advice I started taking ayurvedic medicines along with regular practice of Pranayam

I started practicing Kapal Bhati, Anulom- Vilom ( both 20 -25 minutes each) and other pranayams.I am totally on ayurvedic medicines for last three months. When I stopped taking allopathic medicines, I was afraid of sleepless nights and uncontrolled anger. But it was all my imaginations. Now I am completely healthy and can sleep whenever I feel like. Now I have got control on my temper and my life has become smooth and full of happiness. It’s all because of your grace and kindness.
