Narcolepsy – Symptoms , Causes and treatment


Narcolepsy is defined as neurological sleep disorder, a tendency to fall asleep in day, for long intervals of time. It is characterized as an overwhelming drowsiness and sudden attacks of sleep. Narcolepsy victims find it hard to stay awake in workplaces for long periods.

Causes of Narcolepsy

The exact cause of narcolepsy is unknown. It is a sleep obsession (an easy way to put it). However, scientists have made progress to find the chemical changes that cause narcolepsy. In most cases narcolepsy victims have low levels of the chemical hypo cretin. Hypo cretin is an important neuro chemical in brain that helps regulate wakefulness and REM sleep.

Symptoms of Narcolepsy

Including often sleep attacks the symptoms of narcolepsy include

  •         Loss of muscle control
  •         Hallucinations
  •         Sleep paralysis
  •         Night time wakefulness
  •         Rapid entry to REM sleep

Prophetic Treatment of Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy must be well treated as it is a cause of obesity and car accidents. According to statistics, 30 million people are suffering for narcolepsy and the numbers are accelerating. Narcolepsy is curable and the treatment is provided in Tibb.

Rehabilitate Body Temperature Pouring Cold Water

The best treatment is to reduce the body temperature which is achieved by semi cold water splashes.

Abu Ubaid narrates an incident that some people passed by a tree that they ate from and they were soon immobilized, just as if a wind had swept through by them and froze them.

Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. was told about the situation He said:

“Cool some water in water skins and then pour the water on them between the two Azaanain (the Fajar call to the prayer and the Iqamah)”.

Modern doctors have affirmed that the remedy that our beloved Prophet prescribed in Hadith is one of the most effective against narcolepsy. Pouring some cold water on the person afflicted by narcolepsy during the above mentioned time, which is the coolest time of the night, will cause the inborn heat that is scattered throughout the body to be energized and regulate in the inner parts of the body where the ailment persists. The powers of the body will then concentrate on expelling and resisting the ailment by AIIah’s Will.

Sciatica is a medical term for the condition in which a person suffers from pain in lower back going down to legs. Patient normally feels a constant pain in only one side of the buttock and legs. The pain sometimes intensifies by sitting and it very hard to sit for a long time. Sciatica is wide spreading and some researchers have estimated it will affect up to 43% of the World’s population at some point.

Women are more susceptible to Sciatica because it is caused by irritation of the roots of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine that often occur in pregnancy. Other causes of Sciatica include

  • Degenerative disc disease (breakdown of discs, which act as cushions between the vertebrae)
  • Spondylolisthesis (a condition in which one vertebra slips forward over another one)
  • Muscle spasm in the back or buttocks

Prophetic Treatment For Sciatica

Arabia is a dry continent with very few millimeters of rain annually. At the time of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W., many shepherds and nomads complained of Sciatica as they worked and moved in very dry conditions.

In Sciatica it is difficult for a person to sit, so Our Prophet S.A.W. allowed such a person to drink water standing.

“Let no man drink standing, excepting he who suffering from Sciatica”.

[Stated in the Tibb-ul-Nabbi of Mahmud Bin Mohamed al-Chaghhyani]

Following are the home remedies for Sciatica pain relief and treatment inspired from the holy Guidance of our beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.

1. Sciatica Treatment at home with Tail Fat

Fat Tail - home remedies for sciatica pain It is reported by Hazrat Anas Ibn Malek that Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. said

“The cure of sciatica is in the fat tail of a desert sheep molten and split into three parts. Each part is to be taken on an empty stomach for three following days”. Ibn E Majah

Heat the raw fat to get it in molten form. Heating is essential as it kills all bacteria and harmful insects. Cool it down and consume it in molten form on empty stomach early in the morning for consecutive three days. This method is scientifically proven as the desert sheep’s fat are enriched in Omega3 which reduces inflammation and considered as one of the best treatment for Sciatica.

It must be taken on an empty stomach, so that no other lipids compete with the lipids of the tail for absorption in the digestive tract at the vesicles and pancreas level, in addition to the cellular level where the enzymes acting at the membrane convert those lipids of the omega 3 group to the beneficial type 3 prostaglandin that reduce the inflammations and the pain caused by Sciatica.

Hazrat Anas Further Reported

“The Prophet S.A.W. recommended this to more than Three Hundred people and all were  cured.”


2. Drink lots of water and consume fats

Drink Water To relief Sciatica Pain

Drink lots of water and consume fats. Dryness of joints causes severe pain in body movements. Patient must quit all such types of foods and beverages that are a cause of dryness joints.

Traditions say that a certain Jew was complaining of Sciatica pain, so he gave up camel’s milk and camel meat. He made them forbidden for himself and for his children and soon got cured.

Conjunctivitis – Pink Eye Home Remedies & Treatment

Conjunctivitis, or also known as ‘Pink Eye’ is a disease of the eye that affects the Conjunctiva region of the eye. It causes severe inflammation in the conjunctiva which is a thin and transparent tissue that remains over the white region of the eye. Although there are a number of reasons that can cause Conjunctivitis, the disease mostly results from viruses, bacteria, irritants and allergic triggers such as pollen, dust, specific substances and chemicals. The disease can be transferred through contact from one person to another and can cause vision threatening conditions if not met with care and treatment.


“Do not hate conjunctivitis, because it prevents blindness” Mohammad SAW


Symptoms of Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)

The symptoms include redness/pinkness in the white region of the eye, while eye fluids and tears are increasingly produced. There is also a thick yellow fluid discharged that hardens over the eyelashes when the person goes to sleep or shuts his eyes for prolonged period of time. This is accompanied by green and white excretion as well. The visual performance is affected leading to increased itching, burning, sensitivity to light and blurriness.



Prophetic Treatment of Conjunctivitis

The disease was quite prevalent during the time of Holy Prophet S.A.W and several traditions confirm its treatment.

In one Ahadith, Holy Prophet S.A.W said, “Do not hate conjunctivitis, because it prevents blindness”. Since the eye is one of the only exposed inner tissues of the body, foreign particles can easily make their way inside the bloodstream and affect the body’s functioning. Conjunctivitis is a signal from of body being affected by an infection which means it is fighting back and developing immunity against it. The process improves the immunity of the eye against diseases that cannot attack the body as effectively as before. Its Allah’s natural way to vaccine the body from harmful agents in the surrounding environment.

Constipation – Home Remedies & Treatment

Before any tablets, syrups or gels were invented and introduced, constipation was a common ailment that many suffered. Although traditional home remedies for constipation were popularly used for curing it, most of them involved side effects without any promising results. After the advent of Holy Prophet S.A.W, the Muslim ummah was bestowed with the divine knowledge of treating constipation with the most effective, safe and organic methods.


When the bowel movements are toughened or hard to pass, the person is said to be constipated. This leads to several complications within the body including painful defecation. If the condition remains untreated, obstipation can also occur where the stool and gas becomes impossible to pass, causing cardiac arrest.

Prophetic Treatment

On several instances, Holy Prophet has emphasized on the use of Senna and Sanoot for treating constipation. Due to the laxative properties of the two substances, they are used to soften the stool and assist in bowel movement of the intestines. According to the narration of Ibn Majah, Adudllah bin Umm Haram heard Holy Prophet describe the how Senna and Sanoot can help in curing constipation and almost every disease except death.
