It is said that the originators of the Ayurvedic system of medicine did not base their practices on the experimental method, by this it is meant that there are no record of studies in anatomy, physiology, pathology and pharmacology. But the development of surgery the classifications of disease, the observations on signs and symptoms, prognosis and the descriptions of the nature, toxicity and therapeutic value of drugs as described in the literature all clearly demonstrate high level of knowledge which would not have been possible for men without the scientific approach. One thing we should not lose sight of is the fact that the men who gave the system to the world were drawn from the highest intellectual and spiritual hierarchy. Their motive was compassion.

Treatment according to Ayurveda
In allopathy chemotherapy, radiation or surgery is done, in these therapies immature cells are destroyed which destroys mature cells as well. Which cause bundle of side effects in body like- Hair fall, indigestion, skin rashes, stress beside these side effects reoccurrence of disease is the major fear. In last stage Allopathy doctors have no solution. Fear of reoccurrence cause severe depression, which further increases the formation of immature cells and the cycle go on.
Ayurvedic treatment is based on three factors –
- Avoid the causes of disease,
- Take Rasayan/Immunomodulator and treatment according to doshas
- Panchakarma (Detoxifcation of body)
In ayurveda treatment is given to increase immunity which will help mature cells to fight against cancerous cells. If we change lifestyle then formation of immature cells will reduce or it may stop.
Ayurvedic treatment takes time of approximately 6 months – 1 year to stop formation of immature cells.
Immunomodulator and treatment of doshas work at DNA level.
Change in lifestyle-According to ayurveda we should change our lifestyle.
- Avoid junk food
- Avoid late night work, sleep
- Avoid Stress
- Do yoga daily
- Avoid inorganic food
In ancient times people used organic food, which reduces the risk of cancer.
Earlier, Nights were for sleep and days were for work, but now due to science this has been a not at all followed.
The change in this lifestyle inorganic food, late night work, improper meals have imbalanced the doshas.
Use organic food– Inorganic food or pesticide insecticide laden food is the one of the main cause of cancer. Junk food is toxic for body, but what about pesticides we are taking through food, these are more toxic than junk food. It lowers our immune system to fight against diseases and increases cell growth.
Treatment for ALL
In ayurveda ras- rasayana treatment is mentioned. It boosts one’s immunity. It helps body to fight against immature cells & stops the uncontrolled division of cells. Many rasayanas are prescribed in Cancer
Treatment according to doshas
In Ayurveda three disease causing doshas are mentioned (vata, pitta, kapha). When these doshas are imbalanced they cause diseases. According to symptoms doshas are treated. In ALL mostly tridoshas and vatapitta are imbalanced. We have to balance the doshas and make the digestive fire to work again.
Ayurvedic treatment for ALL works at cell level. It cures diseases caused any factors but patient has to come at a early stage. Generally patient comes after having his hand at all Allopathy treatments & at that stage it becomes difficult to treat sometimes, as we all know the side effect of chemo and radio are so much that immunity of our cells are reduced to zero. So, a patient should explore all options before starting his Allopathic treatment.
These are used according to symptoms.
Yoga and exercise
It helps to maintain mental and physical balance and reduces stress.
It is the best way of detoxification. In panchakarma doshas are expelled out from body.
