The Process Consultation & Counselling A typical first consultation comprises of a detailed personal interrogation, and recording of the health status both current and past. The individual constitution of the patient is also assessed.
The diagnosis of the state of health and that of the diseased state is arrived at by a combination of this personal interrogation, physical examination if felt necessary and through clinical laboratory testing / other diagnostic procedures as deemed fit.
Therapeutic intervention Based on the diagnosis, a course of treatment is chalked out in consultation with the patient.
The Intervention would comprise of one or more of the following
· Advice on Diet & Lifestyle modifications · Counselling and stress management · Prescription for Ayurvedic medicines / Supplements · Ayurvedic therapy sessions at day-care centre · Admission to the hospital and Holistic therapy sessions
Dietetic Advice: Food is considered as an Upastambha (Pillar) in Ayurveda i.e. an important supporting pillar. Hence, Ayurvedic treatment is not complete unless complemented by proper advice related to diet. At Arogya, the do’s and don’ts with respect to the diet are clearly explained to the patients.
Life Style Management: Today’s hectic and sedentary lifestyle has been cited as one of the major reasons for a number of diseases. Advice on lifestyle modifications forms an integral part of a holistic treatment approach.
The physicians at Arogya help the clients in planning their daily regime, adapting to various seasonal variations, by making small modifications in their daily activities.
Counseling and Stress Management: Most of the physical complaints are borne out of mental stress. It has been established that many diseases like Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Hyperacidity etc are directly related to the stress level. Hence stress management has an important role in treatment.
Stress management with the principles of Ayurveda viz, Dhi (strengthening or fortifying the mental strength), Dhairya (encouraging or counseling) and Atmaadi Vignanam (implanting philosophical ideas) is incorporated at Arogya.
Arogya also offers special treatment procedures like Samvahanam, Shirodhara, Tailadhara etc, which are highly effective stress busters.
