Cancer Rehabilitation with Ayurveda

AyurVAID’s Integrated Cancer Rehabilitation Program (ICRP) is built on a foundation of classical Ayurveda management that addresses primary as well as secondary (metastatic) cancers.

ICRP focuses on palliative care to improve the patient’s ‘Quality of Life’. Classical Ayurveda therapies are appropriately integrated with the primary management of cancer to alleviate acute side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy to enhance functional health and overall sense of wellbeing. Further, the motivation levels of the patient and his/her family are enhanced thereby minimizing patient default.

The integrated and holistic approach adopted under the ICRP results in an individualized program that includes customized diet-lifestyle-medicine-treatments prescription.

Minimizes Adverse Effects

ICRP minimizes acute adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea, mucositis, hair-fall, skin rashes, ulcers, burns, myelosuppression, peripheral neuropathies.

Systemic Improvement of Body & Mind Function

At the whole body and mind level the patient shall experience improvement in quality of sleep, appetite, digestion, excretion (motion & urine), in addition to experiencing enhanced vitality and energy levels and lower stress levels for both patient and his/her family.

Pain Management

All dimensions of pain-physical, mental, emotional-are covered by drug and non-drug measures. In particular, to use herbal medicines with anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties to reduce pain associated with muscle, bone, joints, stomach, head, etc.

The herbal medicines can be administered along with conventional pain management taking into account drug-drug interaction. There are no side/adverse effects of these herbal medicines as may occur in the case of opioids or NSAIDs that are used in conventional therapies. Where appropriate, local and whole-body treatments are done to supplement the internal medication. As such, disease aggravation arising from uncontrolled or unrelieved pain is compensated by the broad-spectrum activity of classical Ayurveda medicines.

Other Benefits

AyurVAID’s ICRP complements and enhances the effectiveness of the primary cancer treatment. It also enhances immunity and compensates for cachexia.

The AyurVAID protocol is based on the simple premise that the Physician must diagnose and treat only based on sufficient evidence. This evidence should be ‘patient or rogi based’ in addition to being ‘disease or roga based’ in accordance with the fundamental principles of Ayurveda
