The reason for a choice

by Sebastiano Lisciani

Many times I have been asked why I have dedicated myself to Ayurvedic Medicine.

  

Who is Dr. Sebastiano Lisciani?

"I graduated in Medicine and Surgery in 1986 at the University of Bologna. Later I practiced in a natural medicine practice for two years.

In 1989 I had my first contacts with Ayurvedic medicine, and in 1990 I went to India for the first time, for a first study period of 3 and a half months. I continued to go there every year until 1996, for periods of two to three months a year ".

 

  How many years have you been practicing and where? 

"Army since 1992, throughout Italy: Bologna, Cava dei Tirreni, Santa Maria Capua Vetere, Caserta, Rome, Milan, Palermo, Cefalù, Acireale, Grosseto, Cecina, Livorno, Brescia, Rimini, Lugo, Galliera Veneta…".

 

Doctor Lisciani, what exactly is Ayurvedic medicine? 

"Ayurvedic medicine, or more simply, Ayurveda, is the ancient medicine of India. Its name means 'Science of long life'".

 

Is it an alternative medicine? 

"No. Alternative medicines were born and developed in contexts where there is a traditional pharmacological medicine. If they do not work, there is always the chemical drug or the hospital. Ayurveda, on the contrary, has been and still is for the most part. of the Indian population, the only accessible medicine. Obviously they had to really make an effort to give effective answers to diseases ".

 

What is used to cure? 

"Apart from nutrition (it is proposed to reduce foods that are not good for the patient, without making him become 'Indian', in the sense that he can continue to eat Italian-style), herbal and mineral remedies are used in the form of tablets, for convenience of administration.

 

Should the patient discontinue any ongoing allopathic drug therapies? 

"Absolutely not. The two therapies can coexist. Only in the event that the treating doctor believes that the patient no longer needs some medicine prescribed by him, as it is now superfluous, given any improvements in the patient, can he decide to vary the dosage or suspend it. administration. I am of the opinion that only those who have prescribed a given therapy have the right to modify it ".

 

What diseases are treated with Ayurveda? 

"Virtually all of them. Without working miracles, of course. I said before that it has been the only medicine available for millennia in India. In these 16 years of practice I have treated hepatitis, acne, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, ulcers, gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux. , headache, cervical, arthrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, alopecia, disorders of both male and female fertility, uterine fibroids, decreased vision, capillary and variceal fragility, overweight, water retention and cellulite, osteoporosis, glaucoma, colitis, ulcerative colitis and Chron's disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, memory and concentration problems, anxiety and depression, insomnia, prostatic disorders, cardiovascular problems, constipation, diabetes, acute and chronic bronchitis, asthma, allergy from pollen and mites ........ Maybe I forget a few ...  "(Smiles).

 

How long does a therapy last? 

"It depends: for an acute bronchitis a week may be enough, if the patient has an asthma that has been going on for twenty years, it can take a few months, if it is an old rheumatoid arthritis even years. In the meantime, the patient still has significant improvements. . It also depends on how much the patient agrees to change lifestyle, for example by reducing or quitting smoking and correcting the diet, if it is wrong ".

 

What are the causes of the disease according to Ayurveda? 

"The wrong diet, first of all. Then, the lifestyle, smoking in the first place, but also the frequentation of polluted or very noisy places. Again, the lack of tranquility in the family and at work.  ".

 

Last question: are the treatments very expensive? 

"It depends on how many different diseases are going on. Anyway I would say no. In any case it is a matter of priority: years ago  I met two of my patients at one of my conferences, who greet me and say they are sorry for not having been able to continue the therapy, despite the excellent results, due to the cost. Well, the cigarettes they both smoked, given the brand, cost them more a month than Ayurvedic therapy ...... "
