World Cancer Day 2019: Delhi Hospital Assures Cancer Treatment with Ayurveda, Yoga

New Delhi: A charitable hospital in the national capital is providing treatment to cancer patients using ayurveda and yoga along with dietary and lifestyle changes. Ahead of World Cancer Day on February 4, the founder of Ayurvedic Cancer Treatment Hospital, located in West Punjabi Bagh area, said the facility raises awareness on combating the disease 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.
