Introduction

Yoga had cured me of ailments which had not responded to the other popular therapies, I practised it religiously, read and spoke about it, and in due course became a yoga therapist. I was getting very good results, but initially had not developed full confidence in the system. At this juncture, a gentleman came with multiple sclerosis. He had already deteriorated a lot and was unable to climb steps or from a sitting position without help. I wasnit too sure yoga would help him, but seeing the hope in his eyes, I thought of giving it a try.

By then, I had developed my own style of Yogic treatment, where diet played major role. I had realized early in my career that without appropriate diet a disease cannot be cured and yet no system had made full use of it. They all had different views of the subject, and although valid, their views were incomplete. For modern science, diet it vitamins and minerals, while Ayurveds it is mucus producing and so on; and many other traditional therapies label it just cooling or heating. Andthen there is the alkalinity and acidity factor which is very important but is completely overlooked by moat therapists.

As my interest in health had led me to innumerale books on Nutrition, Ayurveda, Nature cure, and other therapies, I noticed this shortcoming and synthesized the different disciplines to get a complete and powerful guide to attain and maintain good health. When I added that to yoga the result was astounding. So I tied my new integrated therapeutic formula on this gentleman ant to my utter relief and satisfaction, it worked. He started improving and by the end of the course of two months, he could do everything on his own. And the last time I heard of him-which was more than two decades from the day he came me first-he was still mobile and fine.

Since then I have treated a wide variety of serious diseases. Initially, every time I encountered a new serious case, I used to feel quite unsure and apprehensive, but mercifully, the treatment never failed. Sometimes the cure might not have been total. Either because of the advanced age of the patient of irreparable damage of his or her body part, but the improvement has always been there.

People who have experienced the efficacy of Integrated Yoga have developed an unshakable faith in this system. Twenty years ago, a doctor pronounced a wheezing two-year-old child as asthmatic and went on to describe its distressing prognosis to the young mother in great detail. The woman heard it all, faced the doctor squarely and said ‘Doctor, six years hence you will see my child with no trace of asthma, I guarantee you that.’ She asked for ‘six years’ because she knew that, a child could not practice yoga before the age of seven. Fortunately, she did not have to wait that long. With some natural remedies, and certain yogic practices meant for the mind-which I simplified for the baby-the child never wheezwed again.

Incident such as the above me the confidence and encouragement to experiment, and the has always good. In this book I have tried to impart all my knowledge on health that I have gathered over more than thirty years as an Integrated Yoga therapist. If I have left out some ailments, it is because, either I did not get a chance to treat them, or have covered them my previous books.
