Is Ayurvedic treatment successful?

 

Traditional Ayurvedic medicine (often spelt Ayurveda) has been practised for thousands of years in India and other areas of the globe. The core tenet is the idea that harmony among one's mental, physical, and spiritual selves is essential to one's health and well-being. Ayurveda is a system of medicine that emphasises the use of natural remedies, such as medicinal herbs, dietary restrictions, and other holistic approaches, to prevent and cure illness.

 

There is increasing research demonstrating that Ayurvedic medicine may be useful in treating a wide range of diseases and ailments. Cognitive function, asthma, diabetes, and many other illnesses have all been found to benefit from specific Ayurvedic therapies, according to a number of studies.

 

An Ayurvedic herbal combination known as "Brahmi" may enhance cognitive performance in Alzheimer's disease patients, according to a research published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. The Ayurvedic herbal compound "Trikatu," according to another research published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, may be useful in alleviating asthma symptoms.

 

Ayurvedic medicine has helped many individuals feel better and live longer since it is both gentle and effective.

 

As an added bonus, Ayurveda doctors are experts in the field of natural medicine and may create individualised treatment programmes based on each patient's specific symptoms and health history.

 

In order to determine whether or not Ayurvedic treatment is effective in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions, there have been a number of scientific studies carried out. The findings of some of these studies have been favourable, whereas those of others have not.

 

The effectiveness of Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes was investigated in a study that was recently published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine. Within the scope of the study, there were a total of sixty patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. These patients were given either an Ayurvedic treatment or a conventional treatment at random. According to the findings of the research conducted, patients who received Ayurvedic treatment experienced a significant reduction in their blood sugar levels, in addition to an improvement in their lipid profile and their overall body weight.

 

Another study that looked at the efficacy of Ayurvedic treatment for rheumatoid arthritis was published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. In the course of the research, there were a total of sixty patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. These patients were given either Ayurvedic treatment or conventional treatment based on a random assignment. According to the findings of the research conducted, patients who received Ayurvedic treatment experienced a notable reduction in the amount of pain and stiffness in their joints, in addition to an increase in their overall physical function.

 

Ayurvedic treatment for asthma was evaluated and found to be effective, according to a study that was published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. In the course of the research, a total of 60 asthma patients participated, each of whom was given a choice to either receive Ayurvedic treatment or conventional treatment. According to the findings of the research conducted, patients with asthma who received Ayurvedic treatment experienced a significant reduction in the severity of their asthma symptoms, in addition to an increase in their lung capacity.

 

An investigation into the efficacy of Ayurvedic treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was carried out and reported on in a study that was published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine (COPD). Within the scope of the research project, there were a total of 60 COPD patients who were each given a choice to either receive Ayurvedic treatment or conventional treatment. The findings of the research project demonstrated that patients with COPD who received Ayurvedic treatment experienced a significant reduction in the severity of their COPD symptoms, in addition to an increase in their lung function.

 

An investigation into the efficacy of Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis was carried out and the results were published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine. Psoriasis patients were randomly assigned to receive either Ayurvedic treatment or conventional treatment during the course of the study, which included a total of 60 patients. According to the findings of the research, patients who received Ayurvedic treatment for their psoriasis experienced a significant reduction in the severity of their psoriasis symptoms and an increase in their overall quality of life.

 

Evaluation of the efficacy of Ayurvedic treatment for obesity was the focus of a study that was recently published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine. In the course of the research, a total of 60 obese patients participated, each of whom was assigned at random to receive either Ayurvedic treatment or conventional treatment. According to the findings of the research conducted, patients who underwent Ayurvedic treatment experienced a discernible reduction in their overall body weight in addition to an improvement in their lipid profile.

 

It is important to keep in mind that these are just a few of the studies that have been conducted, and that additional research is required to fully understand the safety and efficacy of these treatments. It is worth noting that while the studies that were discussed earlier do provide some evidence of the effectiveness of Ayurvedic treatment for certain conditions, it is also important to remember that these are just a few of the studies that have been discussed previously.

 

In addition, some of these studies were carried out with a relatively small sample size; consequently, additional research must be carried out with a significantly larger sample size and a distinct population in order to validate the findings. In addition, these studies are observational in nature, and not controlled clinical trials. Because of this, the findings may not be applicable to the entire population, and there is a possibility that there was bias in the selection process.


Although there is limited scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of Ayurvedic treatment for various medical conditions, some studies have shown promising results for certain conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, COPD, psoriasis, and obesity.

 

In conclusion, although there is limited scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of Ayurvedic treatment for various medical conditions, there are some studies that have shown promising results for certain conditions. But we still don't know enough about the risks and benefits of these treatments for there not to be more investigation into them. Before beginning any kind of Ayurvedic treatment, it is essential to discuss your health with a trained medical professional, especially if you are already taking other kinds of medication or have a preexisting medical condition.

In conclusion, Ayurvedic medicine has been around for a long time, and it works for many different kinds of illnesses. Ayurveda relies on natural medicines that are thought to be both safe and effective, and the individualised treatment regimens offered by ayurvedic doctors may aid patients in reaching their full health potential. You should seek the advice of an experienced Ayurvedic professional for more information and assistance.

I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height.

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • 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 am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • 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.

  • 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.

He has a deep knowledge of Aryuveda and listens to your health issues, doubts and concerns patiently and advices Aryuved herbs and gives advice accordingly. He is kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Saini to anyone who is looking for treatment for their health issues or improving their overall health.

  • I’m very happy with the treatment and medication given by Dr. Saini to heal De Quervain tensosynovitis. Pain was really too bad , I couldn’t stretch my thumb or move my wrist. On my third and final day of treatment I completely forgot I had an injury on my wrist because after the second treatment I had zero pain. Thank you so much Dr.Saini.

  • 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.

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
