Case Study No: 64 | Ulcerative Colitis - Dilip Kumar
Dilip Kumar, the story of an Air force official with Ulcerative Colitis
An Indian air force official, Mr. Dilip Kumar is a native of the capital New Delhi, the city that is famous for having enormous medical facilities. It being a famous city whose air pollution has reached a dangerous level, but is still a very popular metro of India. Mr. Dilip Kumar was posted in New Delhi when he first experienced the symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis (UC). The doctor after observing the symptoms had an intuition that this patient is suffering from Ulcerative Colitis. The symptoms were rotten to the core and he was recommended to go through the colonoscopy test which was done at the Army hospital in New Delhi. The doctor recommended the colonoscopy test to confirm it which came out to be positive. Mr. Dilip Kumar was suffering from UC.
"What doc, what sort of a disease is this. I have never ever heard its name before?" he asked the doctor. "It's an autoimmune disease, and when you told me the symptoms, my sixth sense told me that it might be UC, but one needs a laboratory tests done to confirm it. Your lab test has revealed it, but don't worry I'll give you a medicine that will heal you within a few days. You better take medical leave from office for some days. After it gets treated fully you can join the office, OK?" replied the doctor. "I will," said Mr. Kumar and continued, "I hope it withers away very soon."
The medication began but the reaction were not that effective, but these reduced the symptoms, bleeding also reduced, doctors asked him to reduce the dosage after a few days, which he did and the frequency of stools went to 20 times a day and also during the night, disturbing his sleep. The bleeding also started enhancing, making him suffer a lot. His wife asked, "What sort of a problem you are having, you are disturbing the whole family and even visit the toilet during the night, I get disturbed, don't you have any effective medicine for that?" she sounded furious but he was helpless and couldn't do anything.
Next time when he visited the hospital, doctor was changed and he asked that doctor, "Doc, don't you have any strong medicine that can heal me as I am disturbing my whole family. I feel the urge to go to the toilet every now & then. Doesn't it have any cure?" "We have," said the doctor, "but these medicines are laced with steroids and might have some side effects." "Don't worry about them, give them to me as I feel frustrated and this disease wins hands down," he said. The medicines continued with steroids, but were worthless and all his energy was being drained out. His appetite has reached the lowest point and didn't know what to do.
One of his colleagues suggested him to try some other alternative treatment like acupressure, homeopathic or Ayurvedic. He had an Ayurvedic expert near his house, he contacted him and narrated his tragic story. That Ayurvedic expert asked him to halt taking allopathic medicines and sold his own medications to him that he began from the sameday. Initially they did reduce some symptoms but very soon symptoms flared up like a wild fire, making him visit the toilet for 25 times during the 24 hours per day. The bleeding also went up and he was losing his weight and his physical fitness was being deteriorated, he was becoming thinner. His weight comedown to 58 from 65 kgs. He felt helpless and was totally perplexed and didn't know where to go and what to do. His same colleague called him after 8, 9 months to know his condition and he told him the whole story. "It's very strange as Ayurvedic medicines don't have any side effects, some of his medicine might be fake or bogus," his colleague said. "Bloody how the hell would I know that it is bogus or real," he was getting furious, "now the situation has become so severe that whatever I eat, the first thing I have to do after eating is visit the toilet. The condition has turned from bad to worse, and I feel absolutely exhausted and shoddy, any advice from your side."
"Never say die, you are a brave soldier of Indian air force, don't give up so easily. Search something on the net and I am sure you will find a remedy that has a permanent cure, soldier get up and get going," his colleague encouraged him. He began to do just that, one day while surfing the youtube he saw a video of a patient of UC who got the treatment done from a Planet Ayurveda. He was quite impressed by this video. Even he was suffering from the last 3 years and thought that let's give them a chance. It might be the place that he was discovering. He watched many more videos on youtube that all looked genuine and also had a word with his wife regarding it and she was the one that made him trust them.

He contacted them and a lady answered very politely, "Hello, this is Planet Ayurveda and how can I help you?" "When can I see Dr. Vikram Chauhan? Actually I am suffering from UC," and he narrated the whole story. "You need to visit him personally or you need the medicine to cure you?" she asked. "I need to see him face to face as I have suffered a lot, please tell me when?" he answered. "Well, let me see sir, you can come on Monday, Tuesday, Friday or Saturday of this month, any day that suits you but do bring in all the reports of various labs and clinics you have visited regarding your disease, even that Ayurvedic one, the clinic opens at 9:30 am and the doctors serve on first come first serve basis sir." "I need to visit as soon as possible," he said. "OK fine sir, see you soon," the lady replied and disconnected the phone.
He went there in August 2016 and was impressed at seeing the hoards of patients at their clinic and he sat waiting for his turn that came around 1:40 pm. He hurried to the doctor's room and after the initial greetings showed him all the papers that he had carried along and was almost sobbing when he narrated his own history.
The doctor consoled him, "Come on sir there is nothing to worry about, cheer up as you are a brave soldier for whom I have lots of respect and you have reached the safest place that will certainly wither away your UC. Better be passionate and not worry.

He got up and went to their pharmacy located in the same premises, bought that Ulcerative Colitis Care Pack and left for New Delhi the same day. A month passed but nobody heard anything from him and then the second month was about to end and he surfaced again at Planet Ayurveda. His face expressed his feelings. "Sorry I didn't inform you earlier as I was busy with the official work, but what a remedy you have given me, the bleeding stopped in the first fortnight and I am feeling 90% fine now and I have put on weight, from 58 kgs to 64 kgs right now and that too in such a short span of time, oh thanks a lot doc," he concluded, also said, "But sir I did have another Ayurvedic medicine but it never affected me and how come your medicine showed effects this fast?"
"That's the quality of medicines we produce, we rely on quality and not quantity," the doctor answered and further said, "I gave you 8 months time, now I am reducing it to 3 months only, you need to continue having the same remedies for another month and after that you can stop them Just stick to the diet I recommended and UC will never dare touch you."
"Sure doc, I will and once again thanks a million times and I will tell all my near & dear ones to come to Planet Ayurveda if anyone of them gets ulcerative colitis," he said and left.
