AIIA's ayurvedic care helps HP native conquer Avascular Necrosis
Ashwani Sharma, a resident of Himachal Pradesh, found himself in a challenging battle with Avascular Necrosis, a debilitating condition caused by the death of bone tissue due to inadequate blood supply. For two years, he tried allopathic treatments but in vain. He was suggested hip replacement but he was not keen, high cost being the main reason.
However, a friend introduced him to an alternative path of healing at the Delhi-based All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA). In November 2023, Ashwani sought the expertise of Dr. Manoj, a seasoned orthopedic surgeon at the institute. Through meticulous examinations, Dr. Manoj crafted a personalized regimen of Ayurvedic medicines and recommended Panchakarma therapy for a holistic approach to managing the condition.
Under the compassionate care of Panchakarma expert Pr. Santosh Bhattar, Ashwani underwent a series of rejuvenating therapies tailored to his specific needs.
The results were nothing short of miraculous. With each session of Panchakarma, Ashwani felt the burden of pain and stiffness gradually lifting, replaced by a newfound sense of relief and vitality. His mobility improved, his sleep became more restful, and the once-debilitating stiffness that had plagued him for so long began to melt away.
Now, standing on the other side of his ordeal, Ashwani has become a fervent advocate for Ayurveda's potential in treating musculoskeletal ailments. He champions the comprehensive and effective care offered by institutions like the AIIA, urging others facing similar challenges to explore the boundless healing possibilities of this ancient tradition.
AIIA Director Prof Tanuja Nesari said that each successful case gives us a sense of satisfaction and help strengthen evidence based theories.
“In Ashwani's journey, the convergence of modern medicine and timeless Ayurvedic wisdom has not only restored his physical well-being but also ignited a beacon of hope for countless others seeking solace amidst the trials of illness,” she added.
Ayurveda is being extensively used today to treat ailments from common cold to cancer. Of late, not only in India but abroad, Ayurveda has acquired great prominence, Dr Nesari added.
Presently, there are 12,000 standalone health and wellness centres across India which are dedicated to the Ayush system. Through Asha workers, every rural household is being covered and the people are being made aware of the benefits of Ayush.
