What Is Huntington’s Disease?
It is a rare yet fatal genetic disorder. In Ayurveda, a genetic disorder is referred to as Beeja dosha. A major Huntington’s disease cause according to Ayurveda, is imbalance in Vata dosha.
What Is The Huntington’s Disease Cause?
This disease is inherited from an affected parent and therefore is an autosomal dominant disorder. Every person inherits two copies of the genes, each from their parents. This is how an affected parent could pass on a healthy gene as well as a defective copy. Therefore, an offspring requires only one copy of the defective gene to develop this disorder. It gradually starts to destroy the healthy nerve cells. The probability of acquiring this disorder is, therefore, 50 percent for every child in the family.
