Patna: Ayurved beckons city patients
PATNA: The age-old ayurvedic system of healing and rejuvenating human body — treatment with herbal ‘jadi-booti’ — is fast coming in vogue in the city. So much so that the state’s lone ayurvedic health centre, ‘Healing Veda Health Solutions’, has received over 10,000 clients during the last six years.
This Kerala-headquartered naturopathy treatment centre is running under the private-public partnership (PPP) mode under a Bihar State Tourism Development Corporation (BSTDC) initiative.
“The number of clients visiting this centre has swelled from 1,000 to over 2,500 every year,” Healing Veda’s Dr T Shaji said, adding the increase in demand has led to the opening of two more branches in the city. It has branches at Rajgir and Bodh Gaya as well.
Most patients come for the treatment of lower back pain, spondylosis and diabetes. This centre also provides treatment for digestive problems and allergies, migraine, sinusitis, hypothyroidism, cerebral palsy, bronchitis, asthma, liver disorder, chronic constipation, sciatica, osteo arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, menstrual difficulties, facial paralysis and chest congestion, the doctor said.
The centre also provides cure for acne baldness, cellulite, wrinkles, and blackheads. Its wellness therapy covers hypertension, anxiety, impotence, insomnia, obesity, depression and stress. Besides, it also provides special packages for body purification, slimming, spine and neck care and rejuvenation.
The medicated oil baths, massage and a wide variety of other therapeutic ayurvedic treatments are done by experts from Kerala.
One of the patients taking treatment for spondylosis said, “I was suffering from spondylosis for the last seven years; in just eight days, I am experiencing change in the intensity of pain.” The treatment period varies from three days to 28 days, depending on the intensity of the disease.
The treatment involves herbal medication, dietary changes, cleansing procedures like bathing, yoga postures, exercises and even breathing techniques.
