Introduction: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a consequence of diabetes in patients and causes impairment in vision. Despite advances in science the treatment of DR is challenging. This paper presents a case of diabetic retinopathy treated successfully using Yoga Prana Vidya healing protocols.
Materials and Methods: Case study method is used in this study going through patient medical records, YPV healer’s records and patient feedback.
Results: Within 8 weeks of YPV healing intervention, blurriness in vision fully reduced, normal vision
restored, and the patient could work longer on computer without feeling strain. Eye drop usage reduced upon medical advice to just once or twice daily. Also, the patient’s diabetes condition was very stable and under control, and stress levels reduced greatly as a result of sustained YPV practices. A follow up after 10 months revealed that the patient was able to sustain the changes, stable and happy.
Conclusions: The integrated and holistic system of Yoga Prana Vidya Protocols have enabled the diabetic retinopathy patient to regain normal vision and stable controlled diabetes with lower stress levels. Further research with appropriate methodology and sample is recommended. It will be helpful for frontline health workers to learn and practice YPV protocols to complement their specialties for holistic treatment of patients.
