Ayurveda In Melbourne

Ayurvedic medicine is oriented toward prevention, health maintenance and treatment.

 

Principles and theory of Ayurveda provide us an insight on the natural forces that govern our biological functions. Ayurvedic medicine believes that a disease is the by product of an imbalance in the body and mental elements that reduce the body’s resistance to diseases.

 

If we try to correct the imbalance, the body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by herbal preprations, lifestyle changes and diet, then the body will resist a disease with a goal of eliminating it where possible.

 

Ayurvedic Herbal products widely used in Ayurveda are believed to strengthen the body’s defences. Although there may not be a current evidence base for all the ayurvedic medicines in comparison to modern medicine thats is completely current evidence based, scientific evidence is gradually developing worldwide with lot of researchers around the glode performing randomised controlled trials in support of the Ayurvedic concept.

 

 

The basic philosophy of Ayurveda is that everything in the universe, including life, is composed of 5 elements, called panchamahabhutas. These 5 elements are space (ether), air, fire, water, and earth. These elements are not recognized as physical elements but rather they represent principles unique to the particular element.

 

These five elements, in turn, give rise to 3 basic types Humours (or forces) that regulate the life cycle and control the entire human body. These humours called Doshas, are vata,pitta, and kapha. Vata arises from space and air, pitta from fire and water, and kapha from water and earth.

 

These Doshas(humors/energies ) contribute in various proportions to make up prakruti (the essential constitution) of an individual. Prakruti is the genetic in nature. Just as 3 doshas control regulatory aspects of the body, 3 gunas(physiological factors )—sattva, rajas and tamas—influence and control the mind.

 

Ayurveda also recognizes 7 dhatus (tissue elements): plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, nerve, and reproductive tissue; 3 malas (excretory products): faeces, urine, and sweat; and agni (energy metabolism). Any disturbance in any of these factors can give rise to disease. Because Dosha imbalance is at the core of every dysfunction, keeping doshas in balance will maintain good health.

 

Ayurveda emphasizes the intrinsic relationship between the body, mind, and consciousness. According to Ayurveda scholars, any imbalance in consciousness (or awareness) leads to undesirable personal lifestyle practices resulting in disharmony and disease process. That is why, in Ayurveda, mind–body interventions such as meditation and yoga are essential to disease treatment and prevention.
 

The concepts stated above reflect the depth of Ayurveda as a complete health care system. Over the years Ayurveda Practitioners have been using these Principles and Theory of Ayurveda to support Natural Therapies in Knox Melbourne.

  • 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...

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • 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 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.
