Some skin diseases respond easily. Stubborn and long standing problems may need multiple cleansing treatments – but respond well, given time and strict diet control. Diet restrictions usually include avoidance of milk, curds, sour things, til, jaggery, fish, urad.

Smt P, aged 5 - Calcutta
Medical History She had had a mild skin problem since she was small. After the typhoid vaccine given when she was 4, it became very severe. Allopaths put her on anti-allergens like Cetzine and steroid creams. After three months, parents stopped this and went to a homeopath. In 3-4 months, it worsened during the treatment. So they went back to allopathy. They went to one of the top dermatologists in Calcutta. As antibiotics were not working, they were put on oral steroids (15 day course which controlled the problem), and then on ‘Cyclosporin’. A small bottle costed 5000/-, but the doctor assured them that
the problem would be cured in 6 months. But they were not informed that a side effect is blood cancer. They consulted 4 doctors who all agreed that this was very dangerous. They were informed that he drug will reduce IGE levels in blood serum. 200 is the normal level. But in subsequent tests the level shot upto 2000, and then 4000. In Apollo also, Dr. R, told them this was very dangerous. He also told them that as the mother is asthmatic, the child has this skin allergy. That all allergies are related. They were then referred to CMC, and went there Oct 2008. They were told that nothing could be done, and maybe as she grew up she would be better.Then a relative from Vijayawada, suggested that they explore Sanjeevani as they were near Madras. After coming here, and taking the medicines to Calcutta, they deferred for a week as there had been so many false starts. Also the patyam (diet regulation) of no milk, no sour fruits etc.… worried them. But after they started in 2 weeks they realized the obvious effects of the treatment. Food Habits Curds, milk had been part of daily diet.
