A cancer treatment through Yoga that does away with the need for chemotherapy to arrest and cure the disease is just a year away, union Minister of state for AYUSH Shripad Naik said on Saturday.

Speaking on the sidelines of the AYUSH expo organised by the central ministry near Panaji, the minister said his ministry is in the process of vetting documentation submitted by a Bengaluru-based deemed yoga university, which is said to have cured patients suffering from cancer using yoga.

“There is an institute in Bengaluru. They have found a yoga technique for prevention and cure of cancer. We have collected all documentation and the process is going on,” Naik told reporters.

Naik said that prima facie he was confident about the “cancer cure” claimed by the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, a deemed university headed by H. R. Narendra, a mechanical engineer who has worked as a post-doctoral research associate at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1970 and subsequently had a stint at Harvard University.

Asked how long it would take for the AYUSH ministry to vet the documentation submitted by the Samsthana related to cancer cure, Naik said: “I think it will take about a year. The documentation should be perfect.”
