How Ayurveda Saved Dr. Zeba Moopen

Dr. Zeba Moopen, the youngest daughter of Dr. Azad Moopen, founder and chairman of the UAE-headquartered Aster DM Healthcare, has opened up about how Ayurveda rescued her from a genetic autoimmune disease.

Dr. Zeba was suffering from the condition Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA), a chronic, autoimmune form of arthritis that causes joint inflammation and occurs with the psoriasis skin condition. This happened in 2017.

“I didn’t have enough skin on my soles to walk. I was walking on my forefeet and I couldn’t even open a bottle of water with my hands. That’s how bad it was,” says Dr Zeba.

Zeba was put on allopathic medication. She also tried Homeopathy treatment, but her condition flared up and her nails started to fall off. Finally, on the advice of her father, Zeba got admitted to Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala for a two-week treatment with ayurvedic medicine and a liquid diet to detox her system.

With this, almost 70 per cent of the medical issues were taken care of. Zeba continued to focus on the medication and diet which empowered her body to heal. By May 2018, she was healed of the impact of Psoriatic Arthritis. “I am independent again and am not reliant on outside help for daily routines. My condition remains 99 percent under control.”

Dr. Zeba describes her experience as an “eye-opener” that made her entire family more open to alternative medicine. The change in their perspective also resulted in the establishment of Wellth Clinic in Jumeirah, which offers holistic wellness solutions.
