A 70-year-old married woman diagnosed with left ovarian malignancy and nonalcoholic fatty liver with ascites in November 2016 underwent conventional management. In February 2017, the patient developed abdominal discomfort, bloatedness, nausea, and vomiting and underwent conventional management first in a government hospital, followed by in a private hospital, South India. Since no improvements were noted in any of the symptoms except vomiting, in March 2017, the patient was admitted to our hospital. The patient was advised to undergo yoga and naturopathy treatments for 30 days. Results showed a better improvement in weight, body mass index (BMI), abdominal girth, blood pressure (BP), plasma glucose, liver function test (LFT), and renal function test (RFT) along with very mild reduction in the size of left ovarian cancer. It suggests that yoga and naturopathic treatments may be effective in improving weight, BMI, BP, plasma glucose level, LFT, and RFT in patients with left ovarian malignancy and nonalcoholic fatty liver with ascites. Further studies are required to warrant the results.
