What is it going to be like for me?

Our experienced physicians will do an initial in-depth consultation to identify your body-mind constitution, balances and imbalances of bioenergies, status of digestive fire, physical and mental state. You get to share all your concerns and problems regarding your health and discuss them with the physician. The treatments and type of Panchakarma detox procedure suitable for each individual will only be decided after this initial consultation. This is the reason why you will not find any pre-designed packages on our website – in Ayurveda, one size does definitely not fit all!

We offer a genuine Ayurveda Panchakarma experience, not a spa vacation. Our emphasis on traditional Ayurveda guidelines will ensure that the balance of your body is restored and you get to enjoy the benefits for a long time to come. Please note that to achieve this, certain diet restrictions may apply and there are times when you will experience discomfort and some treatments that you do not enjoy. However, this is part of the whole process and well worth the results!

How does an Ayurvedic physician diagnose?

Nadi Parikshan (Pulse Diagnosis)

NadiPariksha or Pulse Diagnosis is the ancient ayurvedic technique of diagnosis through the pulse. It can accurately diagnose physical, mental and emotional imbalances as well as diseases. It is an intuitive science that our ayurvedic doctors use to reach the root cause of health issues and not just address the symptoms.
NadiPariksha forewarns potential health risks and gives an insight on how to optimize your health in accordance with your body constitution. Even subtler factors like emotional issues or specific thought patterns that manifest into physical ailments are understood. It gives you a detailed and accurate personalized and individual prognosis. Based on the NadiPariksha diagnosis, our doctors recommend personalized treatment and therapeutic plans. They also recommend the best suitable diet and lifestyle for you.

Ayurveda is a very logical science based on basic scientific principles. The science of Ayurveda does not only depend upon the symptoms as related by the patient, but believes in a thorough examination to discover the root cause of the ailment in the patient. According to Ayurveda, suppression of the disease is not the way to cure an ailment. A patient can only be said to have recovered from the disease if the root cause of the ailment is eliminated and the body of the patient starts functioning normally. Thus, instead of finding methods to suppress the symptoms, Ayurveda focuses on finding the reasons for the underlying symptoms.

To discover the root cause of a disease in Ayurveda, there are certain mandatory examinations that must be conducted. The examination of a patient is referred to as rugnapariksha, the observation of the patient. During this threefold procedure, every possible causative aspect of the ailment in the patient is examined in the following stages:

Darsanam

Stage of inspection and observation. In this stage various factors such as age and other physical characteristics of the patient are thoroughly examined.

Sparsanam

Stage where the observation is done through touch method. Palpation, Percussion and Auscultation are three different techniques used.

Prasnam

Stage of questioning during which the patient is asked about his/her ailments and the symptoms that he/she is observing on a daily basis. It is done in order to synchronize the observation of the physician with those of the patient.

Dasavidha&AshtasthanaPareeksha

Apart from this threefold examination the patient is also subjected to further detailed examination in order to discover all the possible causative elements behind the ailment. The three steps are then elaborated in two ways DasavidhaPareeksha (tenfold examination) and AshtasthanaPareeksha (eightfold examination).

An Ayurvedic physician can also resort to modern diagnostic methods as he/she is formally trained in them.

How can an Ayurvedic physician claim to cure a disease such as diabetes?

Ayurveda is very helpful in treating and managing many lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension etc. even though in western medicine there is no definite cure for them. Ayurveda advocates lifestyle changes and specific medications and treatments to help reset the body’s biological rhythm.
