Miracle cases

Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS)

Mr Sriram (name changed), just 40 years old, suddenly fell ill. His alarm bells started ringing as he lost his strength in his hand grip while his lower limbs became weak. Clearly a case of acute inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy, that is, Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS). What exactly is this GBS? And why did he get alarmed? Because in some cases of GBS it is particularly difficult to recover. As a rule a patient who has just recovered from a seemingly uncomplicated viral infection is vulnerable to GBS.

In the case of Mr Sriram (name changed) the onset of the disease was insidious in nature and started one month before he came to Arogyadhama as a weakness in his left upper and lower limb. During his stay of two weeks he underwent yoga practices based on Integrated Approach of Yoga Therapy. A special yoga module was prepared by us for neurological ailments based on our yoga research. Along with this he underwent other treatments in ayurveda, naturopathy, physiotherapy and acupuncture also.








 There were counselling sessions to control and correct his inner emotions and stress levels. He was treated with cleansing
procedures, called kriyas, twice a week to
cleanse his system
completely. His
schedule started at 5:30 am with pranayama and meditation which continued till 7:30 pm. His
daily schedule included special techniques designed particularly for his ailment (asana,
loosening exercises, relaxation techniques, pranayama, Cyclic meditation, trataka, mind,
sound, resonance technique (MSRT) and pranic energisation technic (PET). His parameters
were monitored on a daily basis to see his improvements.
Improved Parameters:
In the very first week his difficulty in walking reduced and there was a slight improvement in
his hand grip strength. What was in fact more unnerving was that he was on steroids when he
came. But after two weeks of his treatment there was a significant improvement in all his
complaints. And his steroids were stopped.
