  • I have been suffering from IBS for quite a few years. My last resort was to see the doctor in Pure Herbal Ayurveda Clinic. Dr. Saini has helped me get my gut back to a itself. I am able to eat Gluten now and my gut issues have reduced quite a lot. I have more energy now.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Treatment with very effective & refreshing natural therapies.

    JTO Nand Gram

  • 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
