A proper and well planned Ayurveda care with patient’s cooperation can result in wonders…! Read the news below…
[But, the funny thing is both news resources have named the problem differently in the same case! If it is GBS resulting in paralysis (not by ‘stroke‘), then the case is worth discussing and going for further controlled clinical study as there is a chance of self recovery in it.]
MANGALORE: A youth suffering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) has found cure in Ayurveda.
Though GBS, according to allopathic doctors is self limiting, Yashawanth (24) from Santhoshnagar, near Vamanjoor in Mangalore, developed weakness in his limbs and was unable to move for eight months. The doctors at Wenlock Hospital suggested Yashawanth to go for immunoglobulin, which cost Rs 50,000 per injection and the total cost for five days would come to Rs 2.5 lakh.
Later, he was brought to Vishwa Vaidya Ayurvedashram. Dr Srilatha Shetty claimed after four months of treatment with panchakarma, navarakili and many other ayurvedic medicines and procedures, Yashawanth is able to walk around independently and attend to his daily chores.
Yashwant, a mason, confirmed said that though he is not going for work outside, he can manage his day-to-day activities at home independently. The total treatment was free of cost including medicines. Former Vamanjoor corporator Jayaprakash Kottary helped Yashawanth’s treatment.
Physicians say GBS in some people leads to respiratory problems, for which the patient needs a ventilator. “No controlled studies has been done to check in how many cases has it led to respiratory complications,” a physician added.
GBS is an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP), an autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system, usually triggered by an acute infectious process.

Mangalore Sept 20: A 24-year-old man from Vamanjoor near Mangalore was completely cured of whole body paralysis after undergoing a four month long Ayurvedic treatment in an Ayurveda Ashram recently.
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.
