Author : Gurnam Saini  


Cervical Spondylosis- Neck Pain Natural Herbal Ayurveda Treatment  In Melbourne Australia

 

 

 

Cervical spondylosis is a very common problem and may progress with age. It develops due to the wear and tear of the cervical structures.

 

Cervical Spondylosis is term used for neck pain due to the shrink spinal discs, bone spurs and arthritic changes. Cervical spondylosis is generally found along with the osteoarthritis in people older than age 60.

 

 

 

Causes of Cervical Spondylosis

 

 

The main cause of cervical spondylosis is wear and tear of neck bones and cartilages, which make up the neck and backbone. These may include following things:

 

 

Bone spurs

 

Degeneration of disks often occurs in cervical spondylosis, which lead to the development of the bone spurs. Bone spurs are bony structures, which are misguided efforts of the body to recover strength of the spine. But sometimes, these spurs pinch the spinal cord, so result in pain and numbness.

 

 

Dehydrated disks

 

Discs are cushions between the vertebrae. In most of people, discs start shrinking and drying out by the base of 40. Thus, it reduces space between the vertebrae and lead to the pain.

 

 

Bulged discs

 

Cracks of the discs may cause bulging or herniated discs. The bulged discs may press on the spinal cord and lead to nerve irritation.

 

 

Stiffed neck ligaments

 

Ligaments connect bone to bone. Due to increasing age, ligaments get stiffed and calcified. It reduces the neck flexibility, so cause cervical spondylosis.

    Vishnu Datt Sharma- C.E.O

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏


    Inga Spyrou

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!


    Ray Dempsey

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues


    Marie L'eveille

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

  • 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.
