My Story
Ayurveda is in my blood. My grandfather, my great— grandfather, in fact going back four generations on my father’s side, were all Ayurvedic doctors. For that reason, from my earliest childhood, my father gave me Ayurvedic herbs for my health rather than using chemical—based medicine.

I clearly remember one incident, a striking example from when I was 10 years old, which demonstrated to me the effectiveness of using Ayurveda. I had severe colic, which was very, very intense. I was rolling round on the floor in pain, screaming; I thought I was going to die.

My father took me to see a physician, who said it might well be appendicitis and they may have to operate. We’ll wait for a day, even half a day, he said, and if it doesn’t go away, we’ll operate. This was around 1972, when there was no sophisticated diagnostic machinery as there is now. People didn’t think clearly; they just thought—this is appendicitis, so we’ll operate if there’s pain and that will end the problem. That was it.

We went back home and my father called on my uncle, who was a very famous Ayurvedic doctor in our village in Gujarat. My uncle the doctor, when he heard the diagnosis and solution, said, ‘No, no, there’s no need for surgery; we’ll just give her an enema. ‘So he gave us a formula we could make from what we had in the house; a mixture of cumin, dried ginger powder, ajwain, asafoetida, coriander and other things, which we boiled and added to castor oil in specific quantities.
My father then gave me an enema of this mixture. Within five minutes with this the pain disappeared. This was my foundation experience of the effectiveness of Ayurveda.

“The herbs and techniques of Ayurveda may seem quite simple on the surface. However, the way they put the body into balance has far reaching effects on the way you feel. You can change the quality of your life if you follow a few simple methods of living, eating and taking herbal food supplements.” Dr Naram.
