Cochin, June 28: Chandigarh-based bank employee Abhishek Trivedi was diagnosed with ‘Multiple Sclerosis’ (MS) at the age of 19. Being a spirited fighter and an awareness builder, today he is creating a new record by travelling approx. 3100 KM from Chandigarh to Cochin, Kerala to create awareness about MS. Abhishek started his journey on 14 June and took almost 14 days to reach Ayush Prana for his treatment. Ayush prana is a specialised Ayurvedic Hospital that treats only MS patients. He is able to undertake this lengthy and arduous journey by driving a vehicle which has been specifically modified to suit the specially Abled.
Abhishek aims to inspire and raise awareness to all those who are affected with MS & are struggling to manage their daily lives. Abhishek was diagnosed with his illness in 2004 in Greater Noida when he was studying mechanical engineering. At the age of 25 the symptoms worsened which severely affected his mobility. Although he passed the UPSC pre-exam, he could not prepare further as his health condition worsened.
Abhishek Trivedi said, “When I got to know about the treatment offered at Ayush Prana for MS, I visited here in 2021 and underwent the treatment for three months. Prior to coming here, I lost mobility in my legs and was unable to walk. After the treatment, I have regained strength and made considerable improvements. However, MS is a progressive disease and the only hope is to stay in line with the treatment. Doctors at Ayush Prana were of great support & encouragement. I was advised to visit every 8 months for on-going treatment. I saw hope in Ayurveda for MS and today I am able to overcome my challenges with fortitude.”
Dr Prasanth Raghavan CEO & Chief Physician of Ayush Prana, who is also a third generation Ayurvedic Doctor, says “In India, the prevalence of MS varies between 5 to 10 people per lakh in population & around 2-2.25 lakh patients with MS are getting treated currently. It is important to receive appropriate treatment and follow a healthy lifestyle but its even more crucial to get support from family and friends. It is very pertinent for MS patients to create awareness with their struggles, suffering and way of coping with it.”
“I would like to salute the exemplary courage shown by Abhishek Trivedi who has been visiting Ayush Prana and has shown remarkable improvement. People like Abhishek are our brand ambassadors who can spread the message of hope.”
Conventional treatment protocols are ineffective in the long term. In fact, currently there is no known allopathic treatment that can cure or stop MS, moreover some of these medications are known to have high levels of side effects.
