Baba Ramdev controversy

My father is suffering from “End Stage Renal Disease”. His creatinine level was 11, whereas the healthy creatinine level is around 1.

He was undergoing peritoneal dialysis, four exchanges a day with baxter’s 2.5% CAPD fluid. But the creatinine level never came below 10. So much so that his nephrologist was considering putting him on haemodialysis.

Then my father saw Baba Ramdev’s yoga camp being telecasted live on Astha TV. There were some testimonials of people whose creatinine level had come down by doing pranayama regularly.

We were skeptical and thought those testimonials were doctored. But my father wanted to give it a try. So he started doing pranayama daily, infact twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.

Within 2 months, his creatinine level is down to 5.8. His blood pressure and blood sugar levels are also under control now.

Baba Ramdev, does not recommend any of his medicines as the first line of defense. He says that 90% of the problems will be solved by Pranayama alone. And I have seen this happen in my father’s case.

I see not logic, why then, would he do anything that Brinda Karat alleges.

Infact to me, he seems like a modern day Chanakya, whom India needs very badly.

Also, it is one of my new year resolution to do pranyama every morning.

  1. Neena,
    If you speak hindi, you can get hold of Swami Ramdev’s CDs.
    Or there are many books… including some of the bestseller which are easily available around the world ( like Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra) which cover basic pranayama.

  2. Hi i came across your web while searching the net.
    Could you please tell how can i get hold of Baba Ramdevji’s Book in Hindi Version.

    Look forward to hare from you soon.

    My mother is suffering from kidney problem(scarring) She is very cautious in her food habits. For the last one year her creatinine was 1.8 (stable) in every periodical checkup of 3 months. Yesterday (12/-4/06)she had blood check up. Her creatinine is 1.9. She is doing Ramdev Baba’s yoga for the last one week(just started). Now she is very much worried. Should she stop doing kapalbathi & anulom,vilom yoga or should she continue. she is in very much tense. Someone pl. help.
    Thanks

  9. namaskar. mr sailesh nayar
    my opinion is that ur mom should definitely continue doin praanayam such as kapalbhati n anulom-vilom… but as babaji says. the person having serious problems should not do it very fast…
    so my opinion would be that ur mom should continue these two pranayam which r more effective than others. but she should not do it very fast… for more help u can also write to [divyayoga@rediffmail.com].
    this is the id of patanjali yog pith of babaji…

  10. Respected Babaji Namaskar,

    My son have some small white spots(vitiligo) on his body.Please tell me what he has to do to revover from it.I will be very gradefull to you .

    Thanks

  11. baba i have severe back pain & spondelitis & knee pain also, so please tell me what pranayam & asanas ishould do or not.

  12. Dear Satish ji

    Your son should do pranayam daily in the morning during sunrise while sitting outside in the sun. The sun rays will react on his skin and cure him quicker than doing pranayam inside the house.

    It should be done during sunrise. Do bhastrika, kapalbhati, anulo vilom, bhramri and udgeet.

    Regards
    Mrs Pritam

  17. A lot of thanks to GOD and a lot of thanks to Shri RamDev ji. I feel lucky that I am born in your world. To start with , I am a common person living in Delhi. I developed a muscle pull or slight bone dispalcement in my spine (lower back portion ). I was not able to sit and stand at all. However I had no pain while lying down. Simple Orthopaedic Doctors charged Rs. 300 to Rs.500 just for one consultation and only prescribed me painkillers and rest. I started Pranayam. Beleive me 3 minutes of Pranayam used to give me at leat 20 minutes of relief. I continued it and it has cured my back pain. I thank You for your efforts for the entire mankind.
    IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
    With respect for You in my mind , I want to bring to Your Notice the ugly face of few Hospitals in Delhi who are playing with the mankind. The whole system is so curropt that a comon man can never fight against it.
    ======================================================
    First :– Doctors at Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi (counted among good hospitals ) keep patients on ventilator for 3-4 days even after their death.

    Reason :– For Collecting heavy charge saying the patient was kept on ventilator. Not only this at times, they try one more chance. If they see that the patient’s relatives had been spending good on him / her , they say that the patient has to be operated …… Since , no one is allowed to go near to the patient , no one knows that they are be fooling them for operating a dead body.

    =====================================================

    Second :– At Mata Channan Devi Hospital ( started by a charitable trust )
    The Patients , especially critical cases are referred costly medicines , those medicines are not given to the patient , rather they are available at the hospital chemist store again .To find this .. a person marked those medicines with some identification.

    =====================================================

    Third :– Healthy Pregnant Women who refer Good Hospitals are give Pian killer injections to avoid Labour Pains and are operated for colleting more revenues.

    ======================================================

    This Happens in Our Country … Our Great India.
    These are cases which are done on large scale and which I have come to know. What more is going on in this field will be really very disturbing to think of.
    =====================================================

    That’s Why People Cry when they tell about them and their recovery as I see during your shows. They remember the trauma , thay had been through.
