For positive Health

Kati Basti, retention of oil in the lower back regionPuneites have yet another Ayurvedic Clinic that will help soothe their nerves and solve their health related problems. Vd. Neelima Desai, who has a BAMS degree from the Tarachand Hospital, has recently set up the Prakruti Clinic.

According to Neelima, the rise in the number of people seeking medical help is largely on account of wrong diet, irregular food habits, lack of exercise and increase in stress. Ayurveda, she enlightens, is a very ancient science and has proven time and again that it can alleviate most of the problems of the patients. Due to the side effects of allopathic medicine, many people are, in her opinion, opting for alternative medicine.

As far as alternative medicine goes, Neelima has an advantage as her husband is an Acupuncturist .The two fields, she says, go hand in hand, and the couple often recommend both cures if they are convinced it will benefit the patient.

The treatment offered at the clinic has the ability to treat mind, body and soul simultaneously. According to Ayurveda, the body constitution is divided into three doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kaphi which conduct the bodily functions.
