Ayurvedic View oi Health and
Health is a process - not a stand-alone state.
n The process is ongoing ~ not a one-time endeavour.
a The process is participatory - everyone must take responsibility for his health and not
depend entirely on an expert to correct it.
o A dynamic balance needs to be achieved in all aspects ot life - physical, biocherrtical,
intellectual, professional, emotional, behavioral, spiritual, familial and social.
u Therapies need to be comprehensive, considering all aspects of health such as
nutrition, natural medicines. exercise, rest, emotions and lifestyle. It's not limited to just
drugs, medication or surgery.
c Medicines need to be natural - not Synthetic or chemicalbased.
o Treatments need to be customised to suit individual constitution and health condition -
one size does NOT fit all!

What is NEW?
The prevalence of various spine related ailments of
varying intensity, seriously disabling work and life
performance, has led Nagarjuna Ayurvedic Group to
develop the concept of NAGARJUNA AYURVEDIC SPINE
CLINIC, modelling a set of unique treatment protocols.
While using modern diagnostic tools, the conventional
Ayurvedic know-how connected with the management
of spine disorders is also being suitably enriched with
different Speciality techniques in spine treatment. This
includes manipulation and traction techniques from the
'Marma' and 'Kalari' treatments, which are a part of
Kerala's martial aris system. The rehabilitation techniques
of ”Yoga along with suitable 'Yogasanas' are used during
the convalescence stage, thereby helping to reduce the
chances of relapse.
