Indian doctors substitute Ayurvedic drugs for antibiotics du
A Meerut hospital has successfully substituted ayurvedic drugs for antibiotics during a prostatic surgery of an 83-year-old man. Usually, antibiotics are used before, during and after the surgery to prevent urinary tract infection and sepsis following endoscopic urologic procedures. "The patient was allergic to antibiotics and therefore, a panel of doctors decided to go in for ayurvedic drugs as an alternative," Dr. Subhash Yadav, Urologist with Anand Hospital told Indian Science Journal over telephone from Meerut. "During the surgery, we have used only anaesthesia and no antibiotics." Dr. Yadav said, they were surprised by the outcome of integrated treatment and the patient, Ojaswi Sharma is well on the path of recovery after removing 240 grams of prostate on March 1. He said a team of expert Ayurvedic practitioners across the country were contacted, who suggested special medicines from extracts of Indian Tinospora (Giloy in Hindi), Moringa Oleifera (Shigru in Hindi, Muringa in Malayalam), Gooseberry (Hindi name-Amla), Turmeric and Indian bdellium-tree (Gulgul). Shigru is used for mild infections and is a natural pain reliever. Amla increases immunity while Giloy has known detoxifying characteristics.
"This is a very interesting development," said Dr. Ram Manohar, Research Director at Amrita School of Ayureda in Kerala. "It is an eye opener in this period when resistance is being developed for antibiotics. This case points to the need for more studies to explore the potential contributions of Ayurveda in many areas of challenge."
