According to the doctor all kinds of body illnesses and aches can be cured through the science of Ayurveda as it goes down to find the root cause of the disease and treat it.

The treatment offered at KARE has the ability to treat mind, body and soul simultaneously! Also available here is the Sadhana treatment, which is one of the most powerful forms of Ayurveda, The Sadhana treatment has been in practice in Kerala for centuries. It is a treatment, which scientifically applies knowledge researched by Indian sages to treat most illnesses.

Every patient who comes to the institute for treatment undergoes a thorough body typing exercise with the help of the Doctor. The body character of the patient, the mental attitude of the patient is determined and the complete medical history of the patient analyzed. After this, the patient's body constitution is divided into three categories, Wind, Fire and Kaphi.

Dr M Irani, an Acupuncturist by practice, who is on the staff at KARE, and who has been with the establishment since its inception says, "When the patient comes for an Ayurvedic oil massage, we recognize the sickness and then give them the appropriate treatment. The treatment that we give can cure Skin diseases, Arthritis, Parkinson's disease among others. The body massage is given according to the body constitution. The oldest person who came in for a massage was a 92-year-old woman."

Beautiful and spacious roomsThe center has two treatment rooms, one for men and one for women. The masseurs are trained in delivering different types of massages. KARE also provides for herbal beauty treatments, rejuvenation therapy, body purification therapy, slimming programs, spine and neck care.

All the food is cooked in cow's ghee and the diet is planned according to the patient's constitution of the body. The diet is strictly vegetarian.

According to Doctor Kalmadi, "Most people come to KARE and stay for 2-3 days, but people with serious ailments spend longer periods at the institute."

Kamala under ShirodharaOn our visit to KARE we spoke to an Israeli lady, Kamala Sunder, who was on her 3rd visit to India. When asked how she came to KARE, she replied that she met Dr Kalmadi at a Pranic Healing course in Pune and he invited her to visit KARE. Says Sunder "I liked the place very much on my first visit last June." A person who is interested in Pranic Healing, Kamla came to KARE for, in her words, "to cleanse my body and for the Panch karna treatment." In her opinion this is the best place in India and finds Delhi very polluted.
