This hospital treats cancer with yoga and ayurveda
New Delhi: A Delhi-based Ayurvedic hospital is providing treatment to cancer patients using ayurveda and yoga along with the dietary and lifestyle chances. Ahead of World Cancer Day on February 4, the founder of Ayurvedic Cancer Treatment Hospital said the facility raises awareness on combating the diseses and many patients help in spreading its name through word of mouth as well.
"Many patients come to us after having lost all hope in allopathic treatment. We use a four-pronged approach, lifestyle and food habit changes, ayurvedic medicines and yoga," its founder-president Atul Singhal said.
Asked about the efficacy of ayurvedic medicine on cancer, he said, "Our patients are our biggest testimonies. They feel the benefit and tell it to others, or make videos and post those online."
"For medicine, we use 'panchgavyas', mixture of five products of cow, and we use yoga to aid in recovering. We change their lifestyle and food habits and ask them to forego some of them for treatment. So, instead of wheat we tell them to eat barley, black pepper instead of red chilli, jaggery instead of sugar, etc," Singhal said. The 52-year-old said he started the facility after losing his mother to cancer in 2011.
