The Story behind Vedic Healing – By Dr Bhargava

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in the beginning of 2003, when I was a resident in Nuclear Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. It started with intractable constipation and abdominal pain leading to tenesmus and bloody diarrhea. Colonoscopy made the diagnosis of ulcerative colitis, blood tests revealed iron deficiency anemia, and I was started to anti-inflammatory agents and steroids.

I was born and brought up in India and attended the Armed Forces Medical College, in Pune. I came to the US in 1998 and completed a Masters Degree in Physiology at the Medical College of Virginia, before starting my residency training. I got married and my wife came to the United States in 2002. We were expecting our first child when this catastrophe happened.

After graduating in July 2003, I joined the St. Luke’s Roosevelt hospital in Manhattan and we moved to New York. My symptoms got worse (bloody diarrhea with frequency and urgency, severe abdominal pain and cramps, and severe weakness) and there was no relief from the medications. Colonoscopy showed severe inflammation and my hemoglobin was 5.0. I weighed 118 lbs and every day was a challenge. My gastroenterologist suggested immuno-modulators and total colectomy. This was a very scary moment for me and my family.

We were desperate to find anything that could help my situation as I was scared of taking immunomodulator medication or going for total colectomy. One of my physicians gave me IV iron injections which helped. We tried several diets and supplements and the first thing that made me feel better was an Ayurvedic preparation sold online by an Ayurvedic physician in India.

I started reading about Ayurveda and what it had to offer for my condition. I made the suggested lifestyle changes and got even better. Slowly I tweaked the herbal combination and fortunately my symptoms started getting better. Then I started practicing yoga-pranayama suggested for my condition and became symptom free. In the process of healing myself I got certified by the National Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine and started dispensing Ayurvedic herbal supplements to my family and friends. When they got better it encouraged me to start my own practice.

I believe all chronic diseases are caused by lifestyle indiscretions and can be successfully reversed by positive lifestyle changes, Ayurvedic herbal supplements, and the practice of Yoga-Pranayama. Using these methods, when body starts to heal from within, first the symptoms go away, then the dependence on medication, and then you develop immunity towards occasional indulgence.

During your consult, we will first determine your Ayurvedic body constitution, then discuss your lifestyle in detail and determine which choices are working in your favor and which are harming you, how you can change some of those habits to heal yourself, followed by recommendations for yoga poses and breathing exercises. After the consult, your personalized herbal supplement combination will be mailed to you. Complete healing from chronic diseases can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, but you will start feeling better in a matter of weeks.
