Ayurveda vindicated as 50-yr-old gets cured of heart block

The biggest heresy for the many critics of Ayurveda is its vindication obtained through mainstream media. To them, it is a transgression of the highest order since Ayurveda is a pseudoscience that can never truly cure a person from a serious illness, like blocks in the artery for instance. 

But it has happened, and it has sent the detractors to a meltdown. The report published in the Times of India speaks of a 50-year-old person who was diagnosed with 95% blockage in the left anterior descending artery (LAD), who was completely cured after treatment from the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA).

Avdhesh Kumar is an auto driver hailing from Jaitpur in southeast Delhi. Kumar suffered a heart attack on November 12, 2022. Angiography revealed 95% blockage in the left anterior descending artery and 70% mid-obstruction in the right coronary artery (RCA). Doctors advised him to go for stents. 

Wary of the huge costs involved, Avdhesh Kumar approached AIIA for treatment. Assistant professor, Dr Divya Kajaria of the department of Kaya Chikitsa, took up the case. 

“The patient had difficulty breathing and was unable to walk beyond 500 steps. There was also a complaint of chest pain,” Dr Divya Kajaria said. According to the doctor, a blockage in the LAD can lead to a fatal heart attack, hence its moniker as the widow maker.

“The patient was provided Virechana, one of the Panchakarma therapies, followed by oral medicines for three months. Following a 15-day stay in the hospital, and three months of medication, now there is only 0-5% occlusion in both LAD and RCA, which is normal,” said Dr. Kajaria. 

The achievement has been widely taken up by mainstream media, thereby authenticating the efficacy of Ayurveda treatment in the eyes of the layperson. Several hundreds of other similar cases happen all over the country which go unreported purely due to the inherent bias nurtured by modern science against traditional medicine. 

The case of Avdhesh Kumar will hopefully represent a turn of the tide and result in more such cases coming to the limelight. This will go a long way in building up the confidence level of the general population to give traditional medicine like Ayurveda a chance when it comes to addressing their various health issues.
