  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • Simply the best thing I have done for myself and my health. Just knowing that Dr Saini is there is so comforting.

    JJ Aitken

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

    Tara Johnson

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

    Bianca Le Brocque

  • I have been under Dr Sainis treatment for backpain over 2 months.He is an empathetic sensitive and responsible Dr who gave careful directives and absolutely effective treatment to me as a patient.I could speak to him my issues confidently enough and he takes it for face value.I am completely fine now.I thought of my fears of my future and my job which was my sole income.I would love to say that I praise God and highly recommend Dr Saini as an effective practitioner for me and in Ayurveda.Thank you Dr Saini for everything that you have done to help me.

    Manju Jose

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

    Ashe Davenport

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

    Christine Medley

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.

    Balamuralikrishna S

  • Treatment with very effective & refreshing natural therapies.

    JTO Nand Gram

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.

    Jeff raj

  • I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. I saw Dr Gurnam for 6 months because of increased long term insomnia. The holistic approach offered definately was a huge help. I am able to sleep so much better and my general mental health has dramatically improved. Please consider the ancient practice of Ayurvedic Medicine for any aspect of your health. Dr Gurnam really cares and wants to work with you to give you the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes.
