Bicytopenia is a disorder of hematopoietic system and is reflected by lowering of any two of hemoglobin (below 10 g/dL), white cells (3.5-10.5 billion cells/L) and platelets (below 100 × 109/L) in peripheral blood. It is usually treated using corticosteroids, growth factors, immune-suppressants, nutritional supplements, periodical blood transfusion and bone marrow transplantation. However, these treatments have limited effects and may cause moderate to severe side-effects. A young Non Resident Indian male of 28 years old opted for Ayurvedic treatment for Bicytopenia as first choice of treatment, with the consent of a leading oncologist. The patient was prescribed a combination of Herbo-Mineral Formulations (HMFs) along with a regulated diet and lifestyle. Patient has completed fourteen months of Ayurvedic treatment and now leads a normal life. No adverse effects were noticed during the treatment and follow-up period too. Further controlled pilot studies are required to establish proof of efficacy in a systematic way.
