Hello everyone! Myself Dr. Rashmi Sudha. I am having 13 years of experience in the field of Ayurveda. I do practice of Ayurvedic medicine Panchakarma and Swarna Prashana.

Swarna Prashana is a brilliant concept of Ayurveda for excellent growth and development of children. It is given once in a month in a Pushya Nakshatra day from birth to 15 years of age. I do prescribe therapeutic diet plan for lifestyle disorder and for weight loss and weight gain also. I do corporate training for lifestyle and stress management and training of individual for ayurvedic therapy. My clinic Varenyam ayurveda is located in Greenfield colony at Faridabad.

Here, at Varenyam, we follow Ayurvedic treatment principles which are basically categorized in two - it’s called Shamana Chikitsa, i.e. specification therapy and separation therapy and the other one is Shodhana Chikitsa called evacuation therapy for elimination therapy. Shamana chikitsa or separation therapy includes lifestyle changes, diet advice, home remedy or some therapeutic massages like abhyangam, it is a full body oil massage with medicated oil. There is a steam bath othvartanam, inchloss massage, there is a shirodhara or shrolepam for mental stress and relaxation, there is herbal potli massage for musculoskeletal disorder. Purpose of Shamana Chikitsa is prevention from disease.

The other one is Shodhana Chikitsa or elimination therapy or detoxification therapy. Purpose of Shodhana Chikitsa is purification of body or detoxification of the body mostly used in chronic cases or diseases with high amount of toxins stored. There are five methods of detoxification that’s why it is called Panchkarma. First is Vamana , which is a medicated or therapeutic vomety. Mucoid nature of toxins if accumulated in higher amount , then we use Vamana.The other one is Virechana, it is used for bilus nature of toxins - if accumulated in body in higher amount and it is therapeutic bergation. The third one is Vasti, it is medicated enema. There are two type of Vast, it’s a coil enema and decoction enema. There are certain ways like monsoon season or varsha ritu is best for Vasti therapy. The fourth one is Nasya, it’s a adayein therapy and nasal drop therapy we call it. It is used in diseases above Supraclavicular region. The fifth one is Rakta Moshan, it is blood relating therapy mostly or safest use is leech therapy, we use leech for this therapy.

I picked from Gayatri Mahamantra ‘’Om Bhur Bhuvah Swaha Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Pracho Dayateh’’. The word meaning of Varenyam is eligible or the best to whom on can surrender for complete well being. Suggest we practice ayurveda in its totality aiming at prevention, cure and rejuvenation of the whole. Keeping up with the original ayurveda philosophy text and values, thus promoting a balanced holistic way of life I request all of you to visit and feel our holistic and othentic treatment Thank you
