My rendezvous with Ayurveda was not just coincidental. My husband Dr. Atul and his guru Prof. P. H. Kulkarni insisted on using Ayurvedic preparations in my clinic. In addition, our Pharmacology maestro of Seth G. S. Medical College and K. E. M. Hospital (Mumbai), Late Dr. Sharadini Dahanular’s work showed a path. She was the one who had studied importance of various Ayurvedic herbs in Indian health scenario. She was conferred the prestigious fellowship of Institute of Indian Medicine for this pioneering work. Studies by some allopaths like scientist Dr. Shubhada Bopegamage from Czechoslovakia about Sanjeevani Guti in managaemant of Rotavirus Diarrhoea and by Paediatrician Dr. Sunita Belgamwar about Ayurvedic herbs made me curious.
Belonging to an Allopathic background, I was little sceptical in the beginning. However, after over 3 years and around thousand patients, I can now comment and recommend many Ayurvedic preparations. More than a scientific study, this a document based on my experiences. I hope, it gives a brief idea about how Ayurveda and modern medicine together can show path to many who are in need.
