Three aspects form the focus of our work – Arogyadham
It is particularly important for us to highlight the many ways in which we partner with our patients to improve their health and vitality and prevent diseases and disorders. Our approach is based on Salutogenesis, an approach focusing on factors that support human health and well-being, rather than on factors that cause disease (pathogenesis). This approach includes providing nutritional advice, recommendations for behavior and lifestyle, instructing students in appropriate exercise and breathing, teaching effective relaxation techniques, strengthening social interaction, guiding patients in self-knowledge through meditation. During meditation, our intention is for the student to become conscious of action, behavior and thought patterns that have a negative influence on well-being and impede health choices, such as exercise. Thus, the self-efficacy of each individual is enhanced.
For therapeutic work, we like to take our time to determine the current status of the patient and prepare a reasonable, personalized treatment plan. After a detailed survey and investigation, we choose from a range of treatments, the most appropriate for you that will help you to achieve the individualized goal of therapy in stages. Since failure has several factors, our approach is multimodal, i.e., we combine various treatment methods to attain a successful therapeutic outcome, e.g., physiological analysis, manual therapeutic measures, change in diet, providing supplements, exercise, breathing, and meditation. These approaches are tailored specifically for each patient towards the successful treatment of chronic diseases.
Arogyadham Ayurvedic Treatment Center is a center for Vedic Studies where scientists partner with a team of expert therapists to perform research in support of CHARAKA, a randomized clinical study. CHARAKA is an ongoing interventional study, which utilizes the Charaka Samhita (written circa 4th-century CE), a foundational Hindu text of Ayurveda, which has survived from ancient India, as the basis for our inquiry. The Charaka Samhita consists of eight books and one hundred twenty chapters describing ancient theories on human body, etiology, symptomology, and therapeutics for a wide range of diseases; and emphasizes the use of traditional Ayurvedic and herbal medicines to treat such chronic conditions as knee osteoarthritis and other chronic conditions.
The Charaka Samhita also includes sections on the importance of diet, hygiene, prevention, medical education, the teamwork of a physician, nurse, and patient necessary for recovery to health. The aim of the study was to find out whether the Ayurvedic medical treatment approach is as successful as standard conventional therapies in treating chronic conditions. Our center is recognized by the Indian health ministry (AYUSH).
The scientific studies conducted at Arogyadham Clinic contribute to validating knowledge systems like Yoga and Ayurveda, thereby legitimizing their effectiveness in treating a wide range of conditions. The scientific evidence that comes from our research is vital to establishing Yoga and Ayurveda as a viable option for treatment of chronic conditions and patient care and is intended for dissemination to healthcare institutions globally. Arogyadham Clinic is an advocate for healthcare reform and increased awareness of alternative treatment options. We at Arogyadham Clinic, therefore, promote educating people with the positive effects of Yoga and Ayurveda.
