becker muscular dystrophy, herbal remedies, ayurvedic treatment, causes, symptoms

Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) is one of nine types of muscular dystrophy, a genetic, degenerative diseases primarily affecting voluntary muscles. It is named after German doctor Peter Emil Becker, who first described this variant of Duchenne Muscular Dsytrophy (DMD) in the 1950s. BMD is similar to DMD, but allows the voluntary muscles to function better than they do in DMD. The heart muscle, however, can be affected similarly to the way it is in DMD.


It is an X-linked recessive inherited disorder characterized by slowly progressive muscle weakness of the legs and pelvis. The rate of muscle degeneration varies a great deal from one person to another.

  • Pain and sensation:- Some people report muscle cramps at times, which can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
  • Heart:- the heart muscles also get weakened similar to limb muscles. This condition is known as cardiomyopathy, where cardiac muscles become weak and starts to deteriorate due to lack of Dsytrophin. This can be life-threatening.
  • Brain power:- The learning problems seen in some people with BMD seem to occur in three general areas: attention focusing, verbal learning and memory, and emotional interaction. 


BMD occurs when a particular gene on the X chromosome fails to make sufficient levels of the protein dystrophin. Dystrophin plays a role in keeping muscle cells intact; lack of dystrophin causes cells to be fragile and easily damaged.


There is no cure, but treatments are available to help with symptoms and maximize muscle function. It is vital that a person with a BMD stay in shape and continue to use their muscles. This can include physical therapy. Treatment can also include genetic counseling, using splints, massages, and catabolic steroids.


All major neuromuscular disorders are identified with Vatadosha. In Ayurveda this pathogenesis can be clearly understood by the concept of Adibalapravrittavyadhi. Here the pathogenesis occur due to the Beejabhagavayava Dushti which leads to Mamsa Vata Dushti. The Ayurvedic treatments relevant to Rasayana group of herbo-mineral medicines and specified Panchakarma therapies have a definite protective influence and long survival on DhatuKshaya.
