According to the scholars of ancient Ayurveda texts, there are hundred and eight prominent nuclei that are richest sources and repositories of Ayurveda scripture "Shrushut Samhita" as r Gatra Pradese Kwacita Deva Dosa¡, Samurchita Mansamabhipradusya | Vrattam Sthiram Mandarujam Mahantamanalpamulam Ciravraddhayapakam|| Kurvanti Mansopacayam Ca Ïopham, Tadarbudam Ïastravido Vadanti | Vatena, Pittena, Kaphena Capi, Raktena Mansena Ca Medasa Va || Tajjayate Tasya Ca Lakshanani, Granthe¡ Samanani Sada Bhavanti | Meaning: In some part of the body, the excess of vata and other doshas cause unusual growth which may consist of flesh and tissues, which may or may not cause little pain but spreads deeper inside and imbalances the important dhatus (chemicals), and which does not burst on its own and matures slowly. This arbuda looks like a granthi (knot or hard acne) and which is a manifestation of abnormal tridoshas (vata, pitta and kapha) and infected blood, myoplams/tissues (majja), flesh or any cells. It may sometimes be caused by infections (leading to tridosharimbalance and abnormal changes) in a wounded or internally injured part of the body, which malign the blood, serum, lymph, or bodyrtissues, etc. According to the scholars of ancient Ayurveda texts, there are hundred and eight prominent nuclei that are richest sources and repositories of prana (vital spiritual energy) inside the human body. Dysfunctioning of any of these may lead to immediate death. Blockage or disturbance in the flow of prana in any of these deep "marma sthanas" is said to be the cause of cancer. Abnormal levels of tridoshas is also described as a cause of cancerous transformation of blood and other body functions. The scriptures give details of different manifestations of prana in biochemical and physiological functions. For example, a quadruplet discussing these "marma sthanas" in the 6th Chapter of the "Sharira Sthanam" part of the Ayurvedic Scripture "Sushrut Samhita" cites r "soma (water and vital solvents), maruta (oxygen and vital vapor and gaseous components), tejas (thermal and other energies), sat, raj and tam (three foundational elements of all creation and manifestation of Nature), and the root of liferform exist in the marma sthanas. Therefore, if these are severely hurt or damaged, the living body cannot survive. Impurity or blockage of natural flow of liferforce in any marma sthana, or related acute variation in the tridoshas results in cancerous state of connecting body tissues, organs or (biochemical/cellular) functions. China is known as topmost user of native herbal medicines for the treatment of different types of cancers. Ayurvedic plant/herbal medicines are also found very effective in curing this dreaded disease. Many Ayurvedic practitioners across India who have thorough knowledge of the ancient texts and who follow the original approach of this Vedic Science of Medicine are successful in healing the patients of cancer. The effects are best and fastest if the patients strictly follow the diet restrictions and other guidelines of the Ayurvedic doctor who has prescribed the mode of treatment after keenly examining the patient's natural constitution (prakrati) and mental makeup (manovratti). Noted among the Ayurvedic medicines are the special preparations like rasa and bhasma and the fresh herbal/plant medicines prepared in appropriate proportion from those listed below. Hirak (diamond) Bhasma and Swarna (gold) Bhasma are found to be very effective in cure of blood cancer. Other bhasmas effective in checking the growth of carcinomas are Yashada Bhasma, Tamra (copper) Bhasma, Naga Bhasma, Vanga Bhasma, Abhraka (talc, mica) Bhasma and Shrang Bhasma. Mukta Pishti and Punarnava Mandura lend excellent support in increasing the patient's strength and improving the response to the bhasmas. Among the plant medicines and herbs, kanchanaarrguggal and talis patra are referred as "great medicines" against all kinds of cancers. Others especially effective in killing malignant tumors are prepared with suitable combinations of dhamasa, khadira, nayantara or sadabhara, nirvishi, lahasuna (garlic), chitraka, aak, shyama tulasi (black basil), durva, nima, karela (bitter gourd), amarlata, shuddha bhallataka, shuddha vatsanabha, swaranakshiri, devadara, palasha, kutha, gorakhamundi, lodhra, talisapatra, pataranga, banaphasha, ashoka, chakramarda, kanchanara, daru haldi, etc. Some of these act as immunormodulators, some as tonics and other as antircancer reagents. The best cancer research laboratories the worldrover are searching for alternative options in antircancer drugs. Herbal or plant medicines are prominent among these. The Indian (Ayurvedic) prescription of fresh wheat grass juice has been recognized by many modern doctors, as it helps increasing the vitality and resistance of patients. Patients who drink a glass of this every day are found to bear the side effects of chemotherapy much easily than other patients in similar state of disease and treatment. Moreover, the rate and frequency of cure is also found to be higher in such patients. The Brahmvarchas Research Center ofShantikunj Hardwar has contributed significantly by publishing the information on this easy remedy in the Hindi magazine "Akhand Jyoti" more than a decade ago. It has also carried out innovative research focused at reinvestigation of the properties of herbs and plant medicines described in the ancient Ayurvedic texts. In view of the fact that the methods of preparations of bhasmrrasayanas are difficult, tedious, timerconsuming and are known adequately only to few old vaidyas of Ayurvedawho are following the tradition sincerely, the Brahmvarchas Research Centre has emphasized and experimented on use of fresh juice and decoctions and yagyartherapy for many diseases including cancer. The advantage of yagyartherapy, as was outlined in the earlier articles of this series, is that maximum amount of the medicine reaches the blood and different parts of the body directly by inhalation through the nose and mouth and by infusion through the skinrpores. The significant feature of this therapy is that the phytormedicines in vapor phase and volatilized and colloidal forms kill the transformed cells and help in enhancing the immunormodulatory and vital substances. Its added advantages of possibility of collective treatment of many patients at a time, purifying the surrounding environment and spreading the preventive effects are truly unique. The following herbal/plant medicines (total 66) are used in equal proportion in preparation of the special antircancer havan samagri sacrificed in the fire of yagya along with the havan samagri used in daily yagyas of general healthy effects. Most of these are easily available in many parts of India. This havan samagri is sacrificed with loud chanting of the SuryaGayatri Mantra (Om Bhur Buva¡ Swa¡, Bhaskaraya Vidmahe, Diwakaraya Dhimahi| Tanna¡ Surya¡ Prachodayat|| Swaha||). After putting each ahuti with the chant of Swaha, one should utter "Idam Suryaya, Idam Na Mam" to remember the altruistic teaching of yagya that it is for the benefit of entire creation and not for my selfish needs. The best timings of this yagya are around the sunrise and sunset times. However, as per one's compulsions the timings could be shifted by one or two hours such that yagya gets over before it is dark. Minimum of 24 ahutis must be offered every day. More ahutis should be put as per the Ayurvedic yagyartherapist's recommendation. In most cases, fresh decoction of the special antircancer preparation is also prescribed. The dry powder should be grinded very fine and about 4 to 5 teaspoons of this should be boiled in halfrarliter water till the solution is reduced to about onersixth of a liter. Half of this decoction should be drunk by the patient around 9 to 10 am and remaining around 4 to 5 pm. This therapy may be used even if the patient has undergone surgery and has been given (or is still being given) chemo r or radiation r therapy. If practiced thoroughly and regularly as per suggestion of the Ayurvedic expert, yagyartherapy uproots the disease and also eliminates all chances of its recurrence.
