Biography: Nikhil M Dongarkar
In the present era when the modern thinking and the various research are taking place here is an attempt made to understand the basics of cancer in terms of Ayurveda principles. The Ayurvedic description of the pathophysiology of cancer uses traditional concepts translated into a modern context. Although the biomedical treatment of cancer is considered valuable, from an Ayurvedic perspective it results in degeneration and depletion. Taking this into consideration an Ayurvedic approach focusing on strengthening digestion, eliminating toxins, reducing tumor growth, and improving tissue metabolism is useful. An Ayurvedic approach to cancer supportive care focuses on restoring equilibrium, building strength, and rejuvenation.To understand these concept various Ayurved Classical Books and modern textbooks about cancer along with interviews were conducted with 10 experienced Ayurvedic clinicians in verbal manner. Hence on over all of this discussion it has be concluded that Ayurvedic medicine offers a unique perspective on the biomedical diagnosis of cancer that emphasizes restoring wholeness, uses natural remedies, includes a focus on emotional health, and emphasizes prevention strategies which can be a major part in pallivative and supportive care.
