Case of Lung Cancer
Sri. Prashanth (Name Changed), 32 Years, a suspected case of lung cancer with lesion in left upper lobe measuring about 2.5 X 2.3 cm, was admitted to our Hospital with the complaints of hemoptysis, cough, weight loss & loss of appetite. Earlier he had undergone biopsy twice, but it was unsuccessful.
Oncologists had planned to start cancer treatment – Chemotherapy, though the case was not proven by biopsy. After thorough examination of the patient according to Dosha, Dhatu, Mala, Agni, Srothas etc, we administered classical Virechana (detox).
Snehapana was given with Pippalyadi Ghrita & Virechana was given with Trivrith Lehya. After Shodhana we administered Vardhamanapippali Rasayana, after one month, all his symptoms reduced. He was called again for admission after 6 months.
The treatment was repeated, that is, one course of Virechana & Vardhamanapippali Rasayana and other oral medications were repeated. After one year of treatment, the CT scan was repeated, for our surprise, there was complete resolution of the lesion in the left upper lobe of the lungs!! The disease was completely cured by Ayurvedic treatment without any chemotherapy or any other conventional therapies.
