Holistic Healing and Wellness

Body and Mind are the physical manifestations of Supreme Energy .They get inflicted with pain, sickness disease on account of attachment to emotions like anger, jealously, fear, ego etc in our day to day life. Everyone cannot endure it with utmost calmness and positivity. Many gather negativity pessimism, guilt and remain frustrated forever. They develop abhorrence towards life.

As a doctor I feel that the only solution for this is to make them realize about their Inner Consciousness. This Consciousness is merely not a word but a connection with the Real Self; a mother who nurtures, cares and pours affection on her progeny.

Conceiving this on my clients I could observe a huge change in their health, their excitement growing gradually. They could explore their hidden potentials, strengths; became passionate, optimistic towards life. Indeed they could surmise a purpose to their life. They were healed at all levels be it physical-mental-Spiritual. They could face the world fearlessly and were accepted in it whole heartedly. So a simple holistic environment could do wonders with minimum efforts.

Time to ponder over it and communicate your inner apprehensions and queries to get healed at the core. Isn’t it!

FAQs - Homeopathic Healing!

FAQs - Homeopathic Healing!

This is my humble attempt to answer the questions and accusations hurled at Homeopaths time and again. Here we go to begin with PART - I... 

Q. 1. Does HOMEOPATHY act slowly? 
ANS.1 The notion "Homoeopathy acts slowly?" or " HOMEOPATHY takes long time to show results." is baseless. In acute illnesses if remedy is selected accurately, its effect is almost magical. In chronic illnesses, time taken is relative to the duration of illness. 

Q. 2. Why a detailed history is needed for homeopathic treatment? 
ANS.2. Long interviews/Detailed history have their use, as HOMEOPATHY wants to go into your deep study, by considering your immediate sufferings, your past illnesses, your hereditary tendencies and family history, your emotional status as a whole - during illness and otherwise, your liking and disliking in food, drink, temperature, weather etc and many more things to select an appropriate remedy to stimulate your immune system as a whole to make you disease- free totally. 

Q. 3. I am not having any specific disease. Can I take homeopathic treatment for increasing my immunity level? 
ANS.3. Buddy, if you are healthy why do you want medication. BUT, I understand the bottomline of your question and it is the human nature to improve upon the existing condition. If we can demarcate any such parameter by which it can be substantiated that your immunity level has increased, YES, homoeopathy has the potential to do so. 

Q. 4. My disease is not yet diagnosed. Can homeopathy help me? 
Homoeopathic treatment is based on symptom similarity and is not fully dependent on diagnosis. It can possibly cure you of the impending disease, which is yet to be fully developed by building the immunity as a whole i.e. nipping the evil in the bud. 

Q. 5. Is homeopathy a placebo treatment? 
Use it and see for yourself. 

Q. 6. How much time one should give for treatment of chronic and long-standing problems? 
There is no THUMB RULE to know the duration of treatment required. A minimum period of three to six month is generally enough to feel the perceptible difference though the complete restoration may depend on many diverse factors like chronicity of complaints, multiplicity of complaints, severity of complaints, recurrence of complaints, past history, family history, age and individual's response to the treatment, continued physical, mental and psychological stresses etc. 

Q. 7. I am scared to take homeopathic treatment as I have heard it aggravates the existing conditions initially. Is it really so? 

ANS.7. First of all it is not mandatory to have homeopathic aggravation in all the patients. It depends on the sensitivity of the patients. Even if it happens, it is generally of a very transitory nature and is a good omen to mark the beginning of the improvement 

Q. 8. What do you mean by holistic medicine ? Is homeopathy a holistic system of medicine? 
ANS. 8.
The term 'Holistic' was coined by General Smuts, putting forward the theory of Holism - the fundamental principle of the universe is the creation of wholes i.e. complete and self contained systems from atom and the cell by evolution of the most complex forms of life and mind. The system of treatment that takes into consideration the mind-body entity as a whole, can be put under the Holistic Medicine. As HOMEOPATHY goes into your deep study, by considering your immediate sufferings, your past illnesses, your hereditary tendencies and family history, your emotional status as a whole - during illness and otherwise, your liking and disliking in food, drink, temperature, weather etc. and many more things to select an appropriate remedy to stimulate your immune system as a whole to make you disease- free totally, in a HOLISTIC WAY. 

ANS. 9. Homeopathy treats " MAN IN DISEASE NOT DISEASES IN MAN". As HOMEOPATHY goes into your deep study, by considering your immediate sufferings, your past illnesses, your hereditary tendencies and family history, your emotional status as a whole - during illness and otherwise, your reactions and behavior while under stress your liking and disliking in food, drink, temperature, weather etc. and many more things which comprise the constitution of the individual to select an appropriate remedy to stimulate immune system as a whole. 

Q. 10. When homeopathy is based on symptoms matching, then, what is the need of Lab-investigations? (Like blood test, x-ray, ultrasound , CT scan, MRI etc ) 
ANS. 10. Lab investigations are needed initially for disease diagnosis to understand the gravity of the illness to know prognosis of the illness to know the course of the illness to evaluate the correctness of the treatment by retesting when clinical relief is already there. 

Q. 11. Do homeopathic medicines contain steroids? 
ANS. 11.
Medicines can be checked at any reputed laboratory to rule out the possibility.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The Healing Powers of Ayurvedic Cuisine

The Healing Powers of Ayurvedic Cuisine

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian origin science that deals with herbal medicines. This holistic arm of medical science is well known for combining practices like massages and Yoga for better lifestyle management. One’s lifestyle is of vital importance when one turns to Ayurveda for treatment. This is due to the fact that Ayurveda reaches the root of the problem and fixes the same, so that a reoccurrence of the ailment may be avoided. It does so in order to repair the dosha present in one’s body. 

When there is an imbalance in one of the four doshas, it can lead to an ailment that is connected with the relevant dosha. Cuisine is one of the ways in which Ayurveda diagnoses and treats a number of imbalances in the doshas, and the related symptoms or ailments. Let us learn more about the healing powers of Ayurvedic Cuisine.

  1. Ayurvedic Cooking: The rationale behind cooking the Ayurvedic way can be better understood when we realise that the human body and its balance is made up of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, either, fire and water, respectively. In Ayurvedic cooking, some dishes are prepared by steaming and others, by roasting. This is due to the fact that the composition of the food changes once it is processed. The way it changes will have an effect on the human body. For example, tomatoes are cooked so that they lycopene can be extracted and enhanced with such a process. Also, when one blanches carrots, its beta carotene properties are lost. This is why one must eat carrots in their raw form, as per Ayurvedic doctors.
  2. Lactic Fermentation: The use of oil and ghee is prevalent in Ayurveda when it comes to the treatment of various kinds of ailments. Lactic fermentation is a process that produces products like clarified butter or ghee. This was also used as a morning beverage by many royals, as it was believed to keep the various organs clear of toxins.
  3. Salads: Raw food was very popular in ancient times, and Ayurveda still propagates the use of raw food. Salads are usually seasoned with lemon juice and ginger so that minimum processing takes place. This ensures that the food retains its most natural vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Par boiled or raw food is the norm for most Ayurvedic cuisine, which was adopted by the Chinese as well. This was after visiting Chinese pilgrims observed the benefits of the same.
  4. Herbs and Condiments: Ayurveda makes use of a generous variety of herbs and other condiments when it comes to its cuisine. Turmeric root and Curcuma aromatic or Kasturi, are some of the most important and commonly used condiments in Indian cooking.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized Ayurveda and ask a free question.

Research has examined the interplay between fertility and environmental and lifestyle factors as well as the impact of specific complementary therapies.

Herbal Medicine, Supplements and Naturopathy

Herbal medicines and supplements can increase fertility, however they can also interact with drugs you may have been prescribed if undergoing IVF treatment and if used incorrectly, they can interfere with your fertility and chances of success.

We work closely with expert Naturopaths who are highly experienced in this area.

Herbal medicines should only be used in between IVF cycles and discontinued at the beginning of an IVF cycle.

Physical benefits of complementary therapies:

A healthy diet along with exercise helps to build a strong foundation for pregnancy and improved fertility.

Complementary therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, meditation and yoga can help regulate your menstrual cycle, improve fertility, vitality and boost ovulation.

Improved health before conception can help enhance the quality of sperm and egg, lower the rate of miscarriage and increase fertility.

This could include medicines, such as herbal, vitamin, mineral, homoeopathic, nutritional and other supplements, and therapies such as , chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, acupuncture, homoeopathy, reflexology and aromatherapy.

There is limited evidence of the beneficial impact of complementary and alternative medicines and therapies on fertility. While improving your general health is clearly beneficial, we do not routinely recommend their use to improve your chance of conception.

If you would like to try alternative therapies while also seeking medical support for conception, it is important that you tell your doctor. While some complementary medicines may interfere with fertility treatments, acupuncture and vitamin supplements are generally not considered to be incompatible with treatments.
