A testimonial on Psoriasis

This is an excellent case history on the wonderful work we are doing for all our psoriasis patients.  This particular patient had it so bad, his hands were weeping so he had to wrap them in bandages.  His fingers were so swollen he couldn’t even close his fists.  We saw him last winter –he was on prednisone the summer before, and once he finished his round of prednisone the psoriasis and joint swelling came back with a vengeance.  This is because the underlying cause of the psoriasis was not being addressed, only pushed down deeper temporarily with the prednisone.  We see this often with many conditions which get much worse once the patient goes off the prednisone.
So I had to figure out what was causing it:  the pulse diagnosis showed me a very hot liver and the hot ama visha and gar visha toxins in several of the tissues, but I had to “play detective” and figure out where the toxins were coming from.  Once we identified all the causes in his diet and daily routine, we had him stop doing those things (like drinking a half a gallon of tea a day, and skipping and delaying meals, among other problems) he began healing.
Once we changed his diet and the herbs started to kick in, we slowly started the cleansing process, making sure the whole time that the toxins we were pulling out didn’t aggravate his skin further.  He was very compliant and followed his diet and did all his spring cleanses every week.
And in no time, his skin was looking beautiful — the sores were gone, the itching of the skin and the swelling of the joints went down.
And we finally got his immune system to regain its intelligence and stop hyper-reacting.  We give these case histories to show others the good work we are capable of doing with the SVA diet, herbs and cleansing protocols.

Testimonial on Facial Tics

This woman presented to our office 2 weeks ago with one of the worst facial tics I have ever seen.  Her face was constantly grimacing as I tried to take her history.  Her face would go into a huge muscle spasm/contortion and her eyes would squint closed, making it very difficult for her to drive and go to work.
All the doctors had to offer her was Xanax, which is highly addicting and doesn’t get to the root of the problem.
She was given herbs to pacify prana vata, which was extremely out of balance.  We gave Prakrit Cream to pull apana down.  She was also given magnesium to calm down the muscle spasms (and her nervous system).  And last, but not least, we put her on a program to help her regrow her friendly bacteria.  These “yoginis” as Vaidya calls them, actually make 95% of the neurotransmitters for the brain, so it’s almost impossible to calm and balance the brain without addressing this issue.
She bounced back so quickly!  Not only did her facial tic disappear in just one week, but she also had told me that before seeing us she couldn’t shut her brain down — she talked incessantly all day and couldn’t stop if she wanted to, and all night long she dreamed so much that she woke up exhausted every morning.
Her turnaround was amazing — she feels and looks so calm and now she is sleeping through the night with just normal dreams and she has actually lost the urge to talk so much and is enjoying the peace and tranquility that being silent can bring.
Thank you Vaidya for sharing your family tradition with us all so we can help so many people.  We sing your praises every day in my practice!
