Y.S. RANA :
CHANDIGARH—Ayurvedic treatment brings hope to a patient named Gursharan Kaur, aged 61, suffering from IVDP (Intervertebral Disc Prolapse) and having severe pain on her lower back and numbness on both legs could not stand and hold her weight. Poor family emotions, numbed by her impairment, have begun to feel the surge. But now she can stand and walk on her feet without any support. The agent that has made this possible in her life is Sachtek Wellness Centre. The Centr and is completely relieved of the pain and numbness on her both legs.
While talking to Dr Baldev Singh Bagga, Ayurvedic and Panchkarma expert said that he attended many patients like her who have undertaken treatment for spinal disorders in a two-day free medical camp that concluded on December 22 last.
. Most of the cases were chronic including three cases of acute Disc problem where the patients were under medication for years and were also operated upon but there was no relief. More than 70 patients suffering from various spinal disorders like Lumber Spondylitis, Cervical Spondylitis, Ankylosing, Slipped Disc, Muscular Stiffness, Muscular Dystrophy and Structural Deformities were examined and treated with Ayurvedic Medicines and Panchkarma therapy.
“Most of them were provided allopathic treatment for chronic diseases turned to elaborate ayurvedic and panchakarma treatment. This treatment will go for a few months before they are able to recover completely”, Dr.Bagga.
The centre has organized a camp in association with Regional Centre For Entrepreneurship Development (RCED) and Vishwa Ayurved Parishad (VAP), Sachtek Wellness Centre where more than 70 patients came and were provided consultation and free Ayurvedic medicines by experts. Dr Bagga says the centre intends to organize more of such camps on various diseases periodically across Tri-city.
Keeping in mind the health condition of neglected elderly persons especially those whose children are in the service sector or abroad and there is no one to take care of them, a comprehensive plan is underway for geriatric care which will start working next year, states he.
Dr Bagga along admitted that the age-old ayurvedic systems of medicine and treatment were slowly but surely catching up with the people. The system is attracting patients suffering from chronic diseases in large number. The credit goes to the concerted measures taken by the government to strengthen ayurvedic and homoeopathic treatment.
