Has ayurvedic treatment ever cured a stage 4 cancer successfully?

Well, before answering this question, I would like to ask you folks a similar sounding question. There you go….

Has any other form of medicine (other than Ayurveda) ever cured Unmada successfully?


So, my purpose of asking such a bizarre question is to explain the fact that before giving any form of treatment, proper diagnosis (in conformity with the respective Science) should be made. Cancer is something that other sciences explain. But, when we talk about Ayurveda, the parameters are different. Parameters here obviously refer to the diagnosis too and not alone the treatment. There are a lot of things that need to be checked out before starting a treatment. I’ll try to explain some of them here. Firstly, one need to know what a human body is made of. Dosha, Dhatu and Mala are the constitutional elements of a living body. These further divide into groups and they have their own functions in our body.

Then, there are Triguna, ie Sattva, Rajas and Tamas, which belong to Manas (Mind). Again, they have their respective functions. Hence, Ayurveda justifies the fact: “A sound mind in a sound body”.

In addition to this, a human body is composed of Panchamahabhoota, ie Prithvi, Jala, Agni, Vayu and Akasha.

When we aim at curing an illness, we need to keep in mind what a healthy person is like. There are some principles which need to

be followed while planning a treatment such as Samanya-Vishesha Siddhanta and Panchabhoutika Siddhanta. Before that, apt diagnosis has to be made. A Vaidya with a good knowledge of Ayurveda will be able to make the correct diagnosis and the treatment can be given accordingly. There are six stages of vitiation of Dosha, ie Shatkriyakala. These are: Samchaya, Prakopa, Prasara, Sthanasamshraya, Vyakti and Bheda. With each consecutive stage, the Dosha is/are vitiated more making it even more difficult to treat the living body. Once the final stage of Shatkriyakala, Bheda, is attained, there is every possibility that the disorder, if not treated on time, may become incurable.

Also, there are Trividha Rogamarga, ie Bahya, Madhyama and Abhyantara. Every illness comes under one of these categories. Among these, the Madhyama Rogamarga include Marma and Sandhi of Asthi. Marma are the vital points in our body which must be protected in any case. Any harm to Marma may cause death. The picture below shows some of the Marma present in a human body:

Hence, when it comes to Madhyama Rogamarga, the illness is difficult to cure as compared to the other two.

So, Ayurveda has cured the unhealthy and will continue to do so! But, if the illness falls under any of the aforementioned criteria or alike, it cannot be cured. At the end of the day, complete cure is important and not the name of an illness.

Thank you!
