Recent Testimonial of a Cancer Patients Visit to IVAC

Testimonial of a Cancer PatientI am a 63-year-old former Air Force pilot with an intense love of life. Two years ago, my world came crashing down when I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. I underwent surgery to remove the tumor from my sigmoid colon. Soon after, I was put on adjuvant chemotherapy with FOLFOX 6. The side effects were overwhelming. I endured them for the first two cycles.

Then, in my hour of crisis, I found relief at IVAC. Under the personal supervision of Dr Talavane Krishna, I underwent a combination of treatments – Abhyanga and Shirodhara for the first week, followed by Abhyanga and Basti.

Things changed dramatically. The side effects of chemotherapy that were greatly reduced with these treatments were headache and body ache. The nights became restful and the cold sensation in my hands almost disappeared. While the nausea persisted, it began to ease off on the 10th day as against the 12th day of my previous two cycles. I felt relaxed and more like my usual self.

My story doesn’t end here. A year ago, I underwent a second surgery, this time to remove a tumour from my right lung. Eight cycles of chemotherapy followed. Once again, Ayurvedic treatments at IVAC saw me through.

Dr. Krishna and the IVAC family, I have no hesitation in saying that I owe my present sense of well-being in large measure to your painstaking care and the holistic healing therapies that have made IVAC what it is in my opinion, a modern day ashrama with its own, one-of-a-kind acharya.
