Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Oncology in Ayurveda is very much unexplored in spite of its great potential in preventing and treating cancer. Considering the widespread of cancer and limitations of conventional therapy there is a great need for an effective Complimentary and/or Alternative therapy. Also there is an increase in number of cancer survivors who requires effective therapies in prevention and rehabilitation.
Abhaya cancer care unit has taken several steps in this regard and started various activities from organising regular free cancer camps thrice every month and started a Fellowship course in Ayurveda Oncology (Duration 2 years) in collaboration with Rasayu Cancer Clinic, PUNE which is dedicated Ayurveda cancer centre in the past two decades. It has been initiated with objectives of exploring Ayurveda in cancer and creating human resources to aid & extend alternate therapies for Cancer.
In short interval of nearly two years since 2016-17, an encouraging response has been infused in clinic. Abhaya is able to gain attention of different types of cancer patients. Cases of Oral and Breast cancer have reported more in number, following to these lymphomas, Gastro-intestinal cancers etc were noted. It was common expected experience for Abhaya as the patient approached with hope for life at stages of termination. Maximum patients were of Stage three and four and happened to be post chemotherapy/surgery and radiotherapy.
A ground for Ayurveda was also understood during this. Cancer patients needed quality of Life and battle with side effects of conventional therapies. A good number of patients also approached for exclusive Ayurveda management in cancer. Ayurveda presently has a great role in addressing above two needs of cancer affected and survivals. This role of Ayurveda is not a cakewalk as the cancer patients and attenders turning regularly to consultation and availing treatment is process of uncertainty.
A mixed experience is seen at Abhaya, patient demands a paced treatment protocol which needs to address the nutrition for improving general health, managing pain for better standard of living, quarantining conventional therapy effects, future management for non-recurrence, intensive holistic approach form psychological aspect and majorly panchkarma for wellbeing.
