Bikhiben has an inclination for social service and is always ready to help others in need. Her husband is also very supportive of her.

About a decade or ago she was diagnosed with diabetes. Bikhiben got really scared as someone told her that it was a fatal and an incurable disease. She consulted her family who suggested going for allopathic treatment. As she was aware that allopathic treatment has its own share of side effects, she got further worried and decided to opt for an alternative treatment. While discussing with her family members, she came to know about a herbal medication used by her paternal aunt late Siviben Karsanbhai Bajaniya. While the knowledge about the medication was available, there was no one to actually confirm that the medication worked. Despite opposition from her family, Bikhiben decided to go ahead.

She tried the herbal medicationand found her condition to improve within a month. She continued using it and controlled her diabetes considerably. She then started giving the medication to others as well. Many people have benefitted from her medications.
