AYURVEDA AND YOGA MEDICINE PATIENTS PRESENTING UNUSUAL MEDICAL CASES
Purnima Datey and Alex Hankey*
This article presents five unusual cases of chronic disease treated using integrative Ayurveda Rasahara and Yoga medicine treatments. All the cases benefited greatly from the Ayurveda Rasahara and Ahara-Vihara, diet and lifestyle, recommendations. (1) a male aged 43 with highly elevated triglyceride levels at 4,800 units that reduced to 400 units; (2) a male now aged 89 with blockages in 9 arteries since 2006, who first consulted in 2008. Today, he is still without pain, having had no heart surgery of any kind; (3) a female aged 38 with ultra-low sodium levels in her blood which cause her no problems; (4) a male aged 76 with 3rd stage oral cancer due to 50 years chewing tobacco, but who leads an almost normal life; (5) a male aged 69 who consulted when taking 25 units insulin daily and with an initial HbA1c of 9.0 percent. In 40 days HbA1c reduced to 6.7 percent, while insulin intake was reduced to 16 units daily. Apart from their success, these cases also illustrate how regular Yoga practice reduces the degree of pain and problems usually experienced by other, non-Yoga patients, allowing them to lead normal lives.
