Cancer Treatment: Living Legend Narayana Murthy

In the video above, Narayana Murthy demonstrates how he harvests bark from living trees to make free herbal medicine for indigent patients with severe illnesses.

By Narayana Murthy, we don't mean the IT czar from Bangalore, but a lesser-known person from the same state of Karnataka in India. Known as Vaidya Narayana Murthy, he gives out herbal medicines weekly to thousands of patients ailing from different diseases, from kidney stones to heart disease to different kinds of cancer.

Narayana Murthy, about 60 years of age, is from a small village called Narasipura, about 50 km from Shimoga in Karnataka. A Brahmin farmer, he carries on the age-old tradition of Ayurvedic herbal medicine with the help of some NGOs. Every Sunday and Thursday, early in the morning, people from all over Southern India and elsewhere in the world queue up in front of his house. With the help of his family and aides, Murthy serves his patients. On these days, he treats around 600 to 700 patients troubled by different diseases.

Murthy listens intently to each patient for a minute or two, looks briefly at any lab reports they bring, and dispenses medicine, for 15 to 30 days depending on the ailment, free of cost. The patient needs to take these medicines with specific dietary instructions. It is not mandatory for the patient to come themselves to collect the medicine; relatives or friends can also collect the medicine fortnightly or monthly by bringing lab reports or information on symptoms of the illness.

The source of Murthy’s medicines is primarily plants and herbs—stems, roots, and bark—which he personally collects from the forest during particular days of the week.

Narayana Murthy is the last ray of hope for many terminally ill patients suffering from cancer, heart diseases, and respiratory problems. His expertise in treating cancer, kidney stones, and heart block has left many astonished. Just a day’s worth of medicine has yielded unbelievable results for heart blocks and kidney stones.

His treatment for certain kinds of cancer has yielded excellent results, although he recommends these patients take the treatment for six to eight months.

There are as many as 15 NGOs working with Murthy in this noble cause. It has been more than 25 years Murthy started serving the people. He has never expected anything in return, and he has never sought any attention or publicity.

In the age of globalization, which has a costly allopathic treatment for every disease, the common man can't afford mainstream treatments for diseases like cancer and coronary artery disease. Thus, it's highly commendable that someone is helping thousands of people without any expectation of payment. As Murthy tells actress Caroline Quentin in the video above, his medicines do help many people, and to others they at least give hope.

You can reach Shimoga from Bangalore, about 280 km via bus or train. From Shimoga, you can reach Narasipura by public or private transport.

No appointment is required to see Murthy. Service is provided on a first-come-first-served basis, starting at 7 AM every Sunday and Thursday.

Mr. Murthy can be reached by phone, but he is a very busy person serving hundreds of patients, so it is not fair to expect him to call anyone back.

Bubbles on April 27, 2016:

I have just visited Vaidya Narayan Murthy - humble man, severe language challenges, hence we are dependent on the team of people around him. While medicines are @300/- per head/per visit , there are many "other expenses" that need to be considered ; e.g. Travel costs to reach there, waiting for hours, facilitation fee of those who fix spl appts (out of turn) etc. .... scourge the net and find the facilitators contacts - who will take you there/ go for you at a DA/TA and courier you the meds, Those who cannot go there . But u will need to visit there the first time yourself - you should. It will open the door for your future plan of thinking & action.

Hello chiakar please give me your mobile number I need your advice pls msg me....


Chiakar on April 23, 2015:

I believe story could help many diagnosed with prostate cancer.

I live in rural west Africa.My dad died in 1999 after after undergoing a prostate cancer operation. I was diagnose with prostate cancer in February 2006 through a biopsy.The doctors here told me that I need to undergo surgery to take out my prostate.Then I was not well informed about this cancer but the little I known was what the doctors told me.The doctors had informed me the date for the surgery but something happened just 5 days before the date I was to undergo surgery.

My wife had informed me that her colleague gave her a contact of a local man who offers traditional medicine for treatment and cure of prostate.My wife was insistent that I wait not to go for the surgery but to try the traditional medicine.At that point,I was really confused not knowing what better decision to take because I didn't really understand the disease and can't comprehend the risks.But I succumbed to pressure from wife not to have the surgery and go for the traditional treatment so I informed the doctors about my decision.The doctors warned me not to go the traditional way because it the said it was dangerous and unscientific,but my mind was already made.

Few days later,we visited the traditional medicine man.He was a typical rural man in his late 70's,obviously illiterate and speaks only local dialect.He inquired to know who we had come to see him and I brought out my lab test to show to him but he wasn't interested in looking at the paper with me as he couldn't read but he needed only my words to explain my disease.I told him that my disease is prostate cancer which I translated to him in local dialect.He asked us to come back in 1 week time to allow him time to prepare treatment for me.A week later,I returned to him and he gave me a concoction contained in 1.5liter plastic jar.Told me it is herbal and instructed me the measure of quantity to take morning and evening for six continuous days.I paid his charge and left.I following his treatment instructions and completed the treatment for six days.

To cut my story short,I went back for test after few day and no cancer was found.To cut my story short,this treatment cure my prostate cancer and it's been more than 8 years I have remained free from cancer.

Am sure many will be skeptical reading my story,many would hastily dismiss it but please don't be in any hurry doing that as you may discourage many who may benefit from this story.Cancer has killed millions and still killing hundreds of thousands across the world yet no science based medical cure so please do not dismiss stories like mine to discourage many who's lives may be saved like mine.Thousands of them would die of this disease,they are hopeless and and desperate need for a cure wherever they may find a cure.

No doubts,there are evil ones putting out untrue stories to deceive others but such stories never last.

Any patient interested on how to get the treatment I had could email me and I will do my very best to help them in accessing the treatment.
