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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson
