The disease cancer is not mentioned in Ayurvedic texts as a single disease, but similar diseases like Dushta Vrana (Vitiated wounds), Dushta Granthi (Vitiated granulomas), and Dushta Arbud (Tumors) are mentioned in Ayurvedic texts. Cancers of female genital organs namely cervical, vaginal, uterine, fallopian tube and ovarian cancers also show similarity with some diseases mentioned in Yonivyapad Adhyaya in Charak Samhita. Apart from these 2 similarities, certain factors like Kleda (wetting agent), Krimi (Worms), and Shukra – Stree Beeja Dushti (Vitiation of sperm and ovum during fertilization) are also responsible in Samprapti (Etiological factors) of cancers of Tryawarta Yoni. Hence there is an urgent need of alternative treatment for preventing recurrence and metastasis in patients of gynecological cancers and to improve their Quality of Life. Considering Krimi (Worms) as a major risk factor in pathogenesis of gynecological cancers, Panchakarma treatment in the form of Krimighna Basti Upakram (De-worming through enema therapy) is used in our institute in patients of cancers of female genital organs to serve this purpose. Selection of the ingredients was on the basis of its anticancer activity and deworming activity.

Over 63% of clinicians are burning out and the problem goes beyond the recommendations of self-care. As health professionals in Traditional and Integrative Medicine, the need for our expertise is great. With more people seeking out alternatives for their healing journey and the pressures in the primary care setting, we are in a unique position to take the lead in healing our world. My mission with this talk is to educate, inspire, and motivate clinicians to make their own well-being a priority.

The current predominant use of toxic cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation is increasingly questioned. These modalities have the effect of damaging healthy tissue and causing negative impact on the health of the patient which, apart from existing cancer, leads to weakening immunity and the inability to resist the original disease. Powerful economic forces are now established asserting that these modalities persist as the main prescribed treatments for cancer, even though the documented survival rate is low. Increasing research into other modalities such as the use of honey bee venom and photodynamic therapy indicates alternatives have encouraging potential. Honey bee venom is now well documented to kill cancerous tumours and at the same time boost the patient’s immune system non-toxically and increase their ability to survive cancer. Similarly, photodynamic therapy is also well documented to make use of the interplay between various light forms, including low level laser, and photosensitisers, often with plant-based origins. This combination has been repeatedly shown to generate reactive oxygen species known to kill cancer cells. This thesis explores the documented efficacy of both modalities and questions whether they should be more widely adopted in the pursuit of non-toxic treatment for cancer

Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a chronic degenerative inflammatory joint disease characterized by pain and joint swelling and associated with functional limitation and poor quality of life. Non-pharmacological treatments such as photobiomodulation (PBM) and moxibustion (MB) – a thermal therapy using heat from the herb Artemisia vulgaris (pressed in a stick and applied indirectly) – are being increasingly used to modulate the inflammatory process and analgesia in knee trigger points. Since there are only a few studies in the literature comparing the effects of PBM and MB, the aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the therapeutic effects of both treatments on patients with KOA. Twenty-two volunteers with KOA were randomly divided into 2 groups: PBM (n=12) and MB (n=10). The treatments were performed at the same points on alternate days, three times a week, totaling 12 sessions. Pain, agility, functional and quality of life tests as well as goniometric and perimetric measurements were carried out. By comparing the initial and final data, it could be observed that both PBM and MB groups presented statistically significant results in the WOMAC (p< 0.0001 and p< 0,002, respectively), TUG (p<0.0001 for both), and VAS (p<0.0001 and p= 0.0102, respectively) tests. According to the data, the PBM group showed results with faster response times than the MB group. It can be concluded that acupuncture therapies by laser acupuncture (i.e., photobiomodulation) and moxibustion are effective and viable therapeutic resources of Integrative and Complementary Health Practices (ICHPs) for the treatment of KOA.

The use of traditional and integrative medicine has a long history side by side. The concept of physical therapy brought enhancement to the use of this practice in our day to day activities. Pretty diverse. Pretty challenging. Pretty unpredictable. Pretty gut wrenching and hopeful at the same time when faced with human suffering on a daily basis and knowing you are changing the suffering and seeing a person who cannot function become independent and learn psychological, emotional, and physical coping skills that helps them accept some things that cannot change completely and most times change completely. We love ALL our patients equally, we empathise with their individual sufferings, we love to see patients cross important milestones (paediatric spastic child walking for the first time/ Stroke patient walking in 3 months/ athlete completing that marathon after ankle sprain 8 weeks ago/ post-natal incontinent woman being able to control the bladder/ vulvodynia patient being able to have intercourse/ patient walking out after consult with no headache). We love to visualize a world devoid of pain and this is why most pain neuroscience research is being pioneered and translated to clinics by physiotherapists!
Important note: although physiotherapists deal with many acute pain and short term complaintsometimes (increasingly over the last 30 years because of the pain epidemic) we are dealing with difficult, complex and chronic presentations of pain (central sensitisation). Traditional and integrative medicine practitioners have also done their best to work with physical therapists to solve issues such as chronic pain etc. Physical therapists were once perceived as 'healers' but that has changed as much of pain neuroscience has evolved and in this subgroup- physios are more closer to coaches/ guides/ teachers.

Hormones, chemical messengers produced mainly in the endocrine glands and secreted into the bloodstream, play a crucial role in homeostasis, maintaining balance, and stability of the body’s internal milieu. Hormones generate and regulate growth and development, metabolism, reproduction, mood, sleep, and indeed, all bodily functions.
The medical community is increasingly recognizing hormone optimization as a key building block to an extended high quality of life. There is a growing need and interest in evidence-based non-hormonal solutions to alleviate excess, insufficient, and deficient hormone symptoms. This presentation explores evidence-based approaches to manipulating hormone levels without the need for prescription hormonal input.
Focusing on 11 hormones: Testosterone, estrogens, progesterone, growth hormone, thyroid hormone, cortisol, insulin, DHEA, pregnenolone, prolactin, and melatonin, we review the potential impact of diet, exercise, herbs, minerals, and vitamins on raising or lowering hormone levels.
This lecture promises to be a valuable resource for adjunctive relief from hormonal imbalances for all practitioners looking to achieve better outcomes for their patients.

Introduction: There are many different types of immune deficiency described today and many of them can increase the patient to a variety of different symptoms such as the increased chance to have cancer. Purpose: In this article, I am describing a new type of immune deficiency that we cannot prove by laboratory tests. Methods: Because they are in the energy level and affects the energy of the five internal massive organs of the five elements theory of traditional Chinese medicine, Results: After the implementation of the modernization of telecommunication, leading to an increased chance to have any kind of emotional or physical disease because these organs are responsible for the production of internal energy for maintenance of our survival. Conclusion: The use of highly diluted medications according to the theory written by myself (2020) titled Constitutional Homeopathy of the Five Elements Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine in this new type of population that we are facing nowadays is very important to keep the battery of these organs working and functioning to maintain our immune system in adequate level to prevent the development of diverse diseases, in the last phase, the formation of cancer.

Grounding exercises for human beings and other living things, including animals have been around since millennia, I believe they may have been referred to as: centred, balanced, focused, earthing to name a few. I am bringing ancient science and western science together, after all both are sciences in their own rights. Just because western science carry words of caution towards ancient scientific techniques such as “More research is required” or “More research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of grounding and earthing for reducing inflammation in the body”, does not make them any less valid. Please note this is in reference to techniques which have been passed down through generations. There is a plethora of research out there, and from my experiences western science is finally catching up with the ancient scientific techniques – correction, western science is now publicly acknowledging what indigenous people have practiced and have known for centuries. With the technological advancements, and people sharing information at the touch of a button, it is becoming extremely difficult for certain organisations to keep denying the obvious. The fusion of the old and new, list of common ailments individuals may experience when they are “ungrounded” will also be discussed along with the various methods – after all, we are all different, therefore need to find our own techniques and modalities to suit our body types.

“Food as Medicine: solution of chronic inflammation” was first delivered to healthcare providers in February 2019. Several changes occurred since then:1. Life expectancy has declined from 78.69 years to 76.4 years, the shortest it has been in nearly two decades. 2. The major causes of death are heart disease, cancer, COVID-19, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and stroke. 3. The U.S. Total health cost has increased from $3.5 trillion to $4.3 trillion, the cost per person increased from $10,739 to $12,914 per person, and % of GDP increased from 17.9% to 18.3%. Scientific studies in recent years suggest that chronic inflammation is linked to degenerative diseases and cancer. Inflammation is classified as acute and chronic inflammation. Acute inflammation is characterized by the cardinal signs ofpain, redness, swelling, and warmth whereas chronic inflammation may not be symptomatic. Acute inflammation is seen in allergic reactions, infectious, tissue injury,burns, and frostbite. Chronic inflammation is seen in cardiovascular disease, neurological disease, autoimmune disease, and cancer. Acute inflammation usuallyresolves in days or weeks, whereas chronic inflammation may last from months to years. Acute inflammation is associated with the body's response from the innate immunesystem whereas chronic inflammation is associated with the body’s response from the adaptive immune system. Acute inflammation resolves with no complication whereaschronic inflammation results in angiogenesis and fibrosis. C-reactive protein is a biomarker for inflammation. It is elevated in acute and chronic inflammation. Elevated levels of CRP are found in cigarette smokers, alcoholics, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular, neurological, and respiratory diseases. A reduction in blood CRP level is an indication of improvement in the pathological condition. This can be achieved by treating the cause such as hypertension or by lifestyle changes, dietary changes, supplements, fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices.
