Paralysed man cured through ayurvedic treatment

Yashawanth, who hails from an economically backward family, developed weakness in his limbs after his return from a Shabarimala pilgrimage around 7 months ago. He consulted Dr Shrilatha Shetty, Medical Director of Vishwa Vaidya Ayurvedashram near his home, where he was advised to get emergency neurologic treatment in the city. He was treated at Government Wenlock hospital and Sri Manjunatheshwara Ayurvedic College, but to no avail, and was brought back to the Ayurvedashram after three months.

Speaking to media here on Thursday, Dr Srilatha Shetty informed that Yashawanth was given Panchakarma treatment and Navarakizhi at the Ashram, along with music therapy and massages. She described his condition as ‘Sarvanga Vatha’ in Ayurvedic terms and explained its causes, admitting that treating him was a great challenge to her. Also his treatment was completely free. Now, Yashawanth is capable of walking about on his own and performing his duties, she added.
