OBSERVATIONS :

  1. It is observed that Ayurvedic line of treatment used as supportive therapy, is highly effective in improving G.C. & relieving the suffering of cancer patients. All the groups of cancer patients showed 20% to 55% pain relief & 15%-40% improved G.C. Quality of life showed improvement but prolongation of cancer free survival due to Ayurvedic treatment alone was not obvious. Similar observations were made in the last year’s reports of 1994, 1995, 1996.
  2. It is recommended that Ayurvedic line of treatment would be useful as supportive therapy to cancer patients, such combination being beneficial in reducing side effects of radiotherapy & chemotherapy treatments.

OBSERVATIONS :

  1. It is seen that Ayurvedic treatment is highly beneficial as a supplemental line of treatment to existing modern treatment. e.g. Surgery, Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy etc. According to this initial evaluation of results, Leukemia is seen to be effectively controlled in some cases. Most of these patients (nearly 85%) are in very advanced stage of Cancer before coming to us, after having tried all other alternative modern medicines.
  2. Our line of Ayurvedic treatment has shown distinct advantage in improving general condition, vitality & giving good pain relief.
  3. Patients in Group C under going Radiotherapy and / or Chemotherapy were able to tolerate these treatments better because of simultaneous Ayurvedic treatment.
