Success Stories of DUB Treatment
I have suffered from abnormal uterine bleeding for over a year now. I am 59 years old and in a pre-menopausal phase. When it became unbearable I started looking for a natural treatment and that’s when I came across Prakash Netralaya. Their approach, counselling method and treatment did a miraculous job and brought my bleeding under control. It's been 10 consecutive days and I haven’t seen any blood clots or drops. I feel light and liberated and recommend other ladies of my age to try Ayurveda for this problem.
Last year, I had to be hospitalized twice due to heavy bleeding. Twice I was on my periods for 2 months straight and the flow was so high that I had to change 10-12 pads a day. This time, I sought Ayurveda after hearing and reading countless reviews. The therapies and herbal medication did an amazing job and my situation is much better now. The bleeding is not just under control but it seems my body is finally light and liberated. I highly recommend Ayurveda for DUB to everyone.
Why To Choose Ayurveda?
Looks for the Root Cause
The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. Ayurveda offers two ways of treatment; One is Shodhan, and the other is Shaman. Shodhan is complete detoxification of the body by Panchakarma therapies. Shaman is balancing the doshas by Ayurveda medicines, diet, and lifestyle changes. Ayurveda medicines always work better in a patient detoxified with Panchakarma.
Ayurveda medicines are processed most naturally and not in the synthetic and chemical form. For this reason, the herbs are soft on the body, and there is no risk of side effects even if the patient requires to take them for longer durations. The complete eradication of the root cause ensures the cure and prevents future health complications.
Ayurveda is not merely a medical science. Instead, it is a philosophical science too. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment. Ayurveda gives importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease. Two patients of the same disease can have different treatments because of the difference in their body constitution.
