Jamila Finally Starts Breathing a Normal Life after Her Schizophrenia Treatment in India

Jamila sat quietly in her room while her family packed her bags and theirs. They wanted to take her to India, not for a leisurely travel but a medical treatment. Jamila has made many such medical trips to several places since she was 10 years old. But all her parents’ attempts proved to be futile.


Jamila is in her 20s now and her family is still worried about her sudden violent outbursts of anger and her continuous wailing, the reasons of which they could not fathom. “She reacts very violently. Sometimes she starts to cry. Initially we thought maybe these are mood swings that a child normally goes through but later we understood that our child is having schizophrenia”, said her mother.


Her violent outbursts can even scare people and that’s why Jamila never had any friends except for her family. “She used to hallucinate and thought her hallucinations were real. Sometimes I had to comply with her lest she becomes agitated again. There were times when she used to tear our clothes off, wash her hands for hours and repeated anything she said several times. And sometimes she was totally silent. I really felt bad that we could never understand her”, said Jamila’s sister.


Jamila’s family desperately sought for treatments. Finally, they came across Vaidam Health over the internet. “I searched for some medical help in the internet, got to know Vaidam from there”, said her father.


After dropping a query, although they got a response, they were still very skeptical. So, before the treatment started, they came to India to look for doctors and hospitals in which Vaidam Health supported them thoroughly and had arranged everything they required for their daughter’s treatment. “After talking to a few doctors we thought that it would be a good decision to take our daughter to India. So, we arrived in September and the treatment started”, Jamila’s father said.


In India, they went to Vimhans Hospital in Delhi where under Dr. Sanjay Pattanayak’s supervision, rehabilitation and medication, Jamila started to gradually improve. Through constant counseling, engaging her in tasks like painting, Dr. Pattanayak helped her regain her conscious self.


After two months of rigorous treatment at Vimans Hospital, Jamila is now slowly starting to come to consciousness. Now, she smiles, talks to everyone and feels a lot better. She has to continue her medicines for atleast an year.

She goes back home, happy and normal. But more than Jamila, her family is happy as after years of struggle, they are finally successful in recovering their daughter from such a mental anguish.  “We pay our heartiest gratitude to Vaidam Health and Dr. Pattanayak for helping us so much” said her parents.
