1 INTRODUCTION
atients with rare diseases often face a long journey from
diagnosis to treatment (Breining, 2017). [1] The irony of rare
diseases is that a lot of people have them. Experience has
shown that it is difficult to diagnose, research, and treat rare
diseases. Some patients’ conditions are also so unique that no
proven treatment methods are available to help them recover.
Rare diseases are tough to diagnose because most doctors
don’t see them. “Patients tend to enter into what is called a
‘diagnostic odyssey,’” It is really awful for the patients
(Breining, 2017). They go to doctor after doctor. Often this can
take years of not knowing what’s going on. They start losing
hope until they finally get referred to a specialist familiar with
the disease.” According to Breining (2017) [1], about 80% of rare
diseases are genetic, and effective treatment in medical science
exists only for a few.
It has been observed that Yoga Prana Vidya©, (YPV) ©, which
is a non-touch non-drug bio-energy healing method has been
used successfully to heal patients having difficult and multiple
medical conditions. This paper presents four case studies of
such cases successfully healed by YPV©.
2 YOGA PRANA VIDYA (YPV)
According to the founder of Yoga Prana Vidya (Yoga Prana Vidya
Research, 2019), [2] the concept of Yoga has to be understood in a
broader and in a deeper sense. Yoga in recent times is used to refer
to asanas (Postures) and sometimes even to pranayama (a form of
breathing). These are parts of yoga and not completely yoga. If
viewed from the yogi Patanjali point of view, it is known as
Ashtang (eight parts) Yoga. There are many levels of yoga in
practice and yoga means all of this. Each of the steps is very
important. It is the soul using this physical body but the body is an
important vehicle of the soul. This vehicle is so important in the
physical world to be maintained, sustained and used for the
purpose of the Divine. The purpose of yoga is to achieve union and
manifest greatness on earth. The incarnated soul or Jeevatma has 3

vehicles.
1. The Energy body is called the Pranamaya kosha
2. Above that is The Emotional body which is called Kama kosha
3. Above that is The Mental body, the Manomaya kosha
To maintain our physical body it involves maintaining the energy
body, because energy body is the basic mold of the physical body,
which science now recognizes as a bio-Plasmic body. Anything that
happens to the physical body, happens to the etheric body. This
etheric body is referred to as etheric doublein theosophy. Any
ailment in the physical body has its effect on the etheric body. So
we use the term Prana Vidya. Prana is Life Force or Energy used
for the maintenance of the energy body and Vidya is basically the
technology of how to do so. The technology of maintaining the
energy body is Yoga Prana Vidya. Thus YPV gives techniques for
maintaining the physical and energy body and also maintain the
etheric connectivity with the higher self which involves
meditations.
2.1 Healing is the process by which the energy body can be
renewed thus bringing change in the physical body, because the
former interpenetrates the latter. Used up energy or diseased
energy can be removed and the energy body can be impregnated
with fresh energy. All biological life on earth has the ability to heal
itself. Energy follows thought and energy accelerates the healing
process. So the energy is used in healing, to accelerate the healing
process and the body heals itself.
Healing consists of two processes.
1. Cleansing- removal of the used up energy
2. Energizing- giving fresh energy.
In YPV, healer becomes a channel of energy who receives and
transfers energy. Yoga Prana Vidya (YPV) is a revolutionary form
of energy "medicine". It is an ancient science and art that has been
revived in a new form which is easily adaptable and in tune with
modern day busy life. The air around us contains a special life force
that keeps us alive. This life force is also known as "prana" ("Breath
of Life"). YPV reveals various techniques of using prana in order to
better and promote good health. Yoga Prana Vidya has been used
as a tool to deal with psychological and emotional issues also to
remedy everyday work and financial stresses of life. It is primarily
used as a non-touch, drugless, healing system, complementary
(along with) with other healing modalities like Allopathy,
Ayurveda, and Homeopathy. However, there are numerous
instances where the application of YPV healing alone has been
sufficient to alleviate the ailment/ disease (both physical and
psychological).
3 CASE REPORTS
This article gives an in-depth study of the four cases, for which
data was collected from the patient interviews, and
corresponding medical records verified. Each case was also
confirmed with a third source, a closely associated person of the
person healed.
3.1 Case 1: 54 Year old male (age at current review) with
multiple ailments
Pre-YPV medical history: 1989 onwards Severe pain in lower
abdomen, breathlessness, Polycystic Lever, Polycystic Kidney,
Fenestration surgery; recurred cyst, pain, job lost, kidneys
affected, unsuccessful second surgery; DVT: swollen left leg ,
Hernia, sinus.
YPV intervention from 2012: Now fully recovered, employed
and working
Case details
A 54 year old (now) male patient suffered severe pain in
1989, when he was aged about 24. He had the first bout of pain
at the right side of lower abdomen. Doctors diagnosed it to be
cyst that had grown up very much, and the medical opinion
was that it had to be taken out right then. At that time, He was
given some local anesthesia on that and then the fluid was taken
out; it was almost 400 500 mL fluid. There was no medication
nor treatment possible, other than liver transplant, as well as
kidney transplant because both vital organs were affected -
Polycystic liver and polycystic kidney. He was told that he had
horseshoe kidney. That is also on the right side, so everything
is on the right side and putting pressure on the same thing and
then liver started enlarging.
At first, very severe pain started accompanied by
breathlessness. Lungs were squeezed, so the local doctors (in
the city situated in northern India) referred to a
gastroenterologist in a Metro City in western India. There he
was told that the problem was a fully grown liver, full of cysts,
millions of cysts and that is causing this condition. It pressed
all the organs and the only option appeared was liver
transplant, a costly procedure needing funds somewhere
around Rs. 3.5 million at that time. The patient was told about
two alternatives - one is the transplant and second one is just
cut lever 50%, then see what will happen, with a possibility of
improved quality of life at lesser cost. Medical consensus of a
group of experts was that if the Lever was cut down, known
medically as Fenestration, (maximum cyst were on the right
lobe itself), it may take 20 years for cyst to grow, or some 10-20
years to come back, so that by that time the patient has this one,
they need not go for liver transplant because liver grows within
3 months, it regenerates. So that was the option given. But he
again was warned that it is possible that cyst may return within
a year also. They could not guarantee that. The patient was
financially not capable of paying that much amount for a liver
transplant. So, the less costly Lever Fenestration surgery was
agreed and conducted during August, 2000. In an eight-hour
long operation, the surgeons removed the entire right lobe of
the lever with full of cysts. Since liver was perfect, it was
working good, it was over the liver that cyst was coming and
going and they were getting bulging and has come up to the
lungs and squeezing, so because of that that breathing
problems occurred.
So, within 10 days of the Fenestration surgery, the patient
condition appeared very fine, the patient was able to breathe
normally and the pain also subsided. He became little lean also.
The hospital took very good care and everything looked fine
and the patient returned to home city. He was told to come for
checkup once in a month for follow up if everything is ok.
However, within 2 months thereafter, again the cyst came
back. Liver regenerated very fast. Pain started. So much
suffering once again and then medication, Pain killers, were

given. The surgeons examined and said, the cyst was in the
kidneys also, then that also need be transplanted. The patient
and his wife were worried about the situation of more organs
transplant. Also they feared, post transplantation, there will be
need for medications for rest of the life.
The cost of the first operation was borne by his employer
company, so at that point he was financially saved. After
surgery, the employer told him to leave the job, as they thought
that he was not fully functional. Weakness was there, again
pains started, so frequently he had to take leave. His career got
affected and for one full year, he was without job. Thereafter
he got a job in another city of central India. He lived there from
2001 to 2007 almost 6 years. There too, he was not able to work
normally without difficulty. There too he had to frequently visit
hospitals and met a senior kidney specialist, and they too
started extracting the fluid. Twice he was admitted in the
hospital since the pain was uncontrollable, accompanied by
fever, continuous fever and vomiting sensation.
A Gastroenterologist in another Hospital there examined
and said the condition was not good and he was also suggesting
another operation since already one was done. He met one
other foreign doctor. From King’s college London who said he
would conduct surgical procedure to resolve the issue. In 2003
December the condition became worst. Then he was again
admitted to another hospital in January, 2004. The employer
company supported with financial and job assurance. He was
allowed to take leave whenever he was not feeling well.
Unfortunately for him, that operation failed on the table itself.
When they tried to cut, they saw that the entire organs ,
kidneys, pancreas stuck to liver, They were surprised and
declared medical helplessness, and declared he was no more,
raised their hands After 12 hours of operation.
Then some other doctor was called in to resolve the crisis. He
gave one life saving injection and brought him to life.
Subsequently they brought everything in control and they were
able to manage again. However they were not able to stop
bleeding. So after 15 days in hospital he was discharged.
Thereafter, he suffered deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of left
leg calf muscles. Investigation showed some clots, and the clots
were likely to travel faster to the heart and lungs. That had to
be prevented. The leg was swollen and color turned blue. For
him it was a very badly painful situation that he could not lift
his leg. Then once again he was admitted to that hospital. He
was given treatment for 10 days. They gave heparin injection in
the legs and then the swelling came down. For about three
months he could not attend office.
A year later he was diagnosed to having hernia for which he
had to undergo surgery and also he had episodes of fever. By
that time the liver again started giving problems. The patient
and his wife were desperate about what to do, because in 2006
everything appeared manageable. He had also undergone
sinus operation.
Thus he had to undergo in all 4 surgical operations including
hernia in 5 years. In those 5 years, the hospital was like their
home, second home being there frequently every month. It is
patient’s will power and support of family that he could
survive. He started in a new job in the present city from January
2007. The Company where he was employed also supported
him a lot. From 2007 till now the patient and his family could
remain in the present city keeping the job.
Again in 2007 he had DVT attack in March on the same leg
and again it turned blue. He could not lift his leg because of
unbearable pain. Doctors said if the third attack comes then it
will be little bit dangerous for him. But till then there was no
medication. If pain is more he had to take Crocin only, as
nothing else he could take because of his body condition.
Again in 2014, he had DVT attack third time and got
admitted to the same hospital because of the availability of the
same doctor. At the same time they carried out abdominal
scanning and other tests and found cysts were going on
multiplying. By that time he gained weight also and the body
was not in shape. Due to these issues he was not able to sit cross
legged and in ultrasound, none of the organ except liver was
visible.
YPV Intervention & healing
At one time they heard about Energy healing and a Healing
Master was visiting their city. The Master was reputed to heal
and cure difficult medical conditions. In 2012 the patient’s wife
entered YPV attending courses. She asked the YPV trainer to
help her to heal her husband. By the initial healing he found
some comfort. Then she gained some confidence that the YPV
system was going to work for the husband. The pain reduced
with the first healing itself and there was no need to take the
pain killers.
One senior healer also was called in to treat with healing,
only when the bout of pain used to come, she gave distance
healing that worked for him. The senior most healer also healed
him at that time. In one day’s healing, his pain disappeared, and
he achieved peace and calmness. He felt that some unknown
thing entered his abdomen and removed pain.
As instructed by the senior most healer, the patient attended
a 5 day healing camp at Mysuru in October 2012. At this camp
he was healed every day. Then, his health condition started
reversing and getting better day after day. As the pain stopped
he was feeling very peaceful and little bit energetic also. All the
pain disappeared and he experienced there was nothing
causing pain, and completely relieved. He was able to walk
normally. The 5 days healing camp brought some substantial
change for him.
Almost for 4 years since his wife entered YPV, combined
effect of several healings regularly enabled him to live normal
life. He had a repeat attack of DVT during this stage and YPV
was used to help fast recovery complementary to injections
given to treat DVT. Because of all the YPV techniques used
recovery was smooth- Very fast. And very smooth. He felt less
stress. Now, he confirms that everything is under control in his
health domain. In the recent past, he was having a very bad
wound arising out of a fall. The wound was so bad that it was
not getting healed until YPV healing was used.
Regularly every year x-ray was taken for the liver to check
the condition after the YPV healing treatment. The x-ray reports
showed that it is not a cyst-free liver, but it’s under control. The
number of cysts has come down and the size also has come
down to normal. Table 1 shows comparison of his pre and post
YPV condition.
Present health and life status
He does physical exercises regularly, and takes a long walk
early morning. He is gainfully employed and works 8-10 hours

every day, some days even more than 10 hours. His weight is
now in balance at 74 kg. He has got a rewarding job and the
financial condition also improved. He became stable
physically, mentally and emotionally, became more confident
and is able to perform many tasks. He did also undertake
voluntary work for the YPV Ashram during his spare time. The
liver problem is not there now. DVT is also under control with
ease. Now he gets normal sleep too. He is fully fit because of
the regular use of YPV techniques and occasional healing. With
regard to other conditions, he was having BP for almost 25
years and was taking BP tablet. Now he is told to discontinue
BP medication for the last two years. The only medication he
uses now is for DVT. Mobility and walking improved and he
can drive the vehicle. Hemoglobin level has increased to 14
which was around 11 from past many years. He can
comfortably sit cross legged. The other internal organs are in
healthy condition as visible in ultrasound tests

Case details
A 67 Year old male, retired (in 2012) as principal of a degree
college lives in an urban location in a southern city in India. In
1999 he was diagnosed with incidence of diabetes type 2 and
BP, and has since been under treatment He was put on
allopathic medication from then on. In the work place, as a
college principal he had too much of stress and tension. In
course of time his sugar level shot up to about 400, observed
through tests in 2009. He was admitted in the hospital for
treatment and sugar level came to control only after injecting
insulin. Doctor started with 10 units of insulin at that time, in
2009.
He was told that taking insulin was purely temporary and
when it comes to control, he could stop taking insulin. But,
sugar didn’t come under control. So they went on increasing
the insulin units also. So finally, it reached about 46 units of
insulin. He was taking 3 times; morning 20, evening 20, and
afternoon 6; total 46 units.
He started his post- retirement life. In 2014 March, he went
for routine health checkup. He was diagnosed with coronary
Heart disease. Three arterial blockages were identified there.
One blockage was very serious, doctors advised to fix stent.
This happened in March. April first week he went for the stent.
He was put stent for 1 blockage and 2 blockages were very
minor blockage so they were let free. After that he was alright,
but mobility was decreased. Doctors told him to observe some
conditions, such as to walk slowly, not to lift some weight, not
more than 5 kg. So his mobility had thus been reduced.
Then, after 6 months, he suffered severe intolerable pain in
left shoulder. Somehow he tolerated till March because of some
family event going to take place in October-November. He
went for medical checkup in March 2015. He went through all
the tests. Then again, 2 blockages were found, that too 98%,
Doctor advised him, to admit himself in the Heart specialist
Hospital, Bangalore for surgery. In July 2015, he underwent
bypass surgery. Thereafter, again, he could not control the
sugar level. BP was controlled throughout and it was normal.
But, he could not control the sugar level. Body weight increased
to 84 kg, mobility was very slow, and he could not walk
normally. If he walked about 1 KM, then he used to get
breathing problem.
He had hypothyroidism also, for which he was taking 25 mg
medication daily.
Then his next problem was joint pain. - frozen shoulder, he
could not rotate hand freely. After bypass surgery he got this.
He went through Physiotherapy treatment, after that they
advised and treated there also about 3-4 days.
He talked about hip joint pain which started after bypass
operation only. Frozen shoulder after operation and hip joint
pain also after operation. He had other problems such as left leg
toe numbness, gallbladder stones, enlarged Prostate problem
was also there, and it was found in ultrasound checkup. Fatty
liver grade 2 was observed in the tests.
YPV Intervention
He was introduced to YPV by his son and daughter-in-law
who were practicing YPV for the past 10 years. He did not
initially believe YPV and how it works. Upon persuasion, he
went to the YPV Ashram to take healing treatment when the
healing camp was held, in the first week of January in 2017.
There were many healers in the camp and he was given 4
healings. So many patients were there, he was one of them.
Each healer studied about his ailments and they used to heal
him, first healer, second healer, third healer, then fourth senior
most to heal .Then, after 1 week of healing he found that sugar
level had been decreased; however not come down to normal
yet . Before YPV healing, he was taking insulin 46 units and
Jalra M50/500 two tablets twice daily. After one-week healing
camp, insulin was reduced by 10 units. It came down to 36
units. That encouraged him to come over to attend 3 months’
healing camp there, which started in February 1st week in 2017
till end of April.
The healers advised him to forget the things which caused
worry and tension. They explained about practicing
forgiveness sadhana and impressed upon him to forgive and
forget whoever hurt his feelings. If you have hurt anybody,
don’t keep that in your mind, just forget. Seek forgiveness from
them, which is all in mind. He had all those tensions in mind
causing him to raise his sugar level. Due to those reasons only

deteriorated. He was doing daily exercise, Super Brain Asana,
Abdominal breathing and forgiveness Sadhana.
During that one month of healing camp, they taught YPV
healing courses of 3 levels free apart from regular healings.
Then also, he was not convinced about the efficacy of YPV
completely. He used to take normal food. But after 1 month, he
realised that he was not practicing those instructions given by
YPV Team properly. Weight reduced only 1 Kg in 1 month and
sugar control was not there. He could not control sugar, but it
was reducing slowly. He then thought about how to practice
YPV seriously.
He continued one more month healings and YPV practices
seriously along with fruit diet from 1st of March, taking all days
3 times fruit. Whenever he felt hungry in between, he used to
take buttermilk. So, 3 times fruits, and in between some
buttermilk he used to take. In total 53 days insulin 36 units were
reduced to zero. His weight also reduced by 14 kg.
So with all these healings and YPV practices, he
continuously reduced insulin as sugar level dropped and
totally stopped taking insulin within 52 days of YPV practice,
as it came to normal without insulin. So that is the first step.
He continued camp for total three months. It was surprising to
him that YPV is working on him. He continued Arhatic yoga
month and completed Arhatic training. So, in 3 months or so,
his weight also reduced by 14 kg. After this course, he went to
Heart specialist Hospital for routine checkup. All reports
showed normal.
Earlier, his HBA1C was 8.4 even with insulin and tablets
when he joined YPV and in June 2017, it was 6.1 without insulin.
It is coming to normal.
Other positive outcomes for him are, gallbladder stones gone
completely. Prostate problem also reduced but it is still there as
found in ultrasound checkup. He never had urinary infection.
Fatty liver grade 2 was there, now it is reduced to mild fatty.
The very surprising positive result for him was daily use of 46
units of insulin that are now completely discontinued. It
changed his lifestyle to experience better and healthy life. YPV
worked for him as he felt positive energy. He now walks
about 8 to 10 KM a day and doesn’t get tired. He has become
very much active and fully independent. With no surgery, and
no medicine he has recovered. He completely recovered from frozen
shoulder and left leg toe numbness. Hip joint pain also reduced by
more than 50%.
According to him, it is the grace of YPV healers and mentors
that brought good changes in his health through changes in
lifestyle and attitude towards YPV to fully reap its benefits. He
feels grateful to all those people. Now he is healing other people
for a healthier life.
4 CONCLUSIONS
Yoga Prana Vidya (YPV) has been emerging as a very
valuable system of healing various physical and psychological
ailments with no side effects. This case report documents
evidence gathered on the effective uses of YPV in healing and
treating patients having multiple ailments, besides some
chronic ailments also cured. YPV uses a combination of
approaches, (1) physical exercises including rhythmic yogic
breathing, (2) Salt free diet; fruit diet, and (3) Meditation
techniques, healing by healers, participation in group healing,
self-healing by patients, and regular self-practice by patients.
These patients have also become trained healers in course of
time, begun healing practice regularly and act as role model for
other people with multiple ailments.
This study also reveals that there is vast scope for further
research in this field for scientifically testing suitability of YPV
to cure various other ailments and all age groups of people.

p class="abstract">Bones form a vital part of the skeletal system providing mechanical support, strength, structure and protection to the human body. Inability of the bone to resist any kind of stress caused accidently can result in a bone injury or a fracture. This article provides a summary of eleven cases of bone injury and fracture treated successfully by yoga prana vidya (YPV) techniques as a complementary medicine for faster recovery. The study was carried out by two healers who independently healed eleven cases of bone injury and fracture using the bone regeneration techniques of YPV. Further, the data was collected and the results were analysed. By application of YPV healing techniques complementarily, it is observed that full recovery took place within 10 days to 45 days for the 3 hospitalised cases, and within 3 to 8 days for the two patients who had bandage/dressing done at a medical facility. In case of the remaining 6 patients who sought YPV healing help in preference to seeking medical help the recovery took place within 5 to 20 days. helping the patients to lead a normal life thereafter. It is observed that YPV techniques can be used for faster recovery of patients with injured and fractured bones. This paper shows the successful results when the techniques were applied on eleven participants. It is recommended to conduct further studies on a larger scale for the healing of bone related cases such as injury and fractures.</p

Background: Post Herpetic Neuralgia (PHN) is a chronic potentially debilitating resistant neuropathic pain. This is a single in-depth case study conducted to assess the effectiveness of Yoga Prana Vidya (YPV) Healing in the Management of PHN. Experience has shown that YPV is an effective noninvasive non-drug therapy for several ailments and this study has used YPV in the management of this severe painful condition. Methods: One patient suffering from PHN was treated with a set of YPV protocols. He had been treated earlier with conventional therapy consisting of Opioid Analgesic Pentazocin injection, sedatives like valium, tricyclic antidepressant like Gapapentin for four months duration with little relief from pain. The patient was advised to perform self-practice of some YPV protocols including rhythmic yogic breathing 2-3 times a day. Initially healing was done three times a day for 3 days and then once in a day for 4 days. Results: During the first healing session, the patient slept in clinic and got relief in the pain by 20%. On the same day in the night he slept for 7 hours. . Within a week patient was completely relieved of his pain, stopped taking any analgesic, psychotropic drugs, and resumed his daily chores. Conclusions: YPV is an effective alternative noninvasive nondrug, non -touch therapy for the relief of pain in PHN when the conventional therapy may be ineffective. The article also provides some insights into the future possibilities of YPV applications. Key words: Post herpetic Neuralgia treatment, neuropathic pain, Yoga Prana Vidya meditation healing.
