Ayurvedic Workshop: Treating Precancerous Stages

With Doctor Vijith Sasidhar

Cancer is continuously on the rise in the modern world. Nutrition, lifestyle and environmental factors obviously play a role in the increasing occurrence of this serious disease with many faces. Modern medical science has developed many treatment modalities, and several approaches now offer increased survival rates. However, modern medicine usually only starts to treat when a full fledge cancer diagnosis is there. Precancerous stages, though indications can be obtained by several means, usually remain untreated. This is where Ayurveda could play a bigger role.


Precancerous stages are particularly well known within the lay world by, for example, diagnosis of HPV in case of women, and increased PSA (prostate marker) in men, HBSAg (Hepatitis B marker). In these, but also in other potential precancerous conditions, Ayurveda can still offer a clear and defined treatment. A correct assessment is key – not only in terms of Western medical markers, but particularly also in terms of Ayurvedic pathological markers.


Ayurveda has a thorough and well proven approach regarding different disease processes, which in Ayurveda has led to its own set of names of diseases, or rather disease processes or groups. This also counts for several – often quite diverse – conditions, which – each of them – might eventually develop into a complication which then will be classified as a cancerous condition according to western medicine.


Doctor Vijith Sasidhar is currently part of a scientific research committee of a renowned Ayurveda University in South India. In his own clinical practice, he has seen several patients with precancerous markers heal completely or considerably from these conditions. Thus, keeping them away from and out of the potential or prognosed cancer condition.
