Had excruciating lower back pain for over a month. Couldn’t move much, bend, or do any activity. I would wake up feeling exhausted every morning, energy less. Went to Orthopedic doctor, Chiropractor, and then finally decided to go to an Ayurvedic doctor, with my friend’s recommendation, although I had no expectations, as nothing was working.
So I came to The Healing Gardens.
Just by checking my pulse, Dr. Ram was able to tell my entire medical history and also family medical history. He started me off on some powders that don’t smell or taste good, but feeling change in my energy levels the very next morning and reduced pain, I started liking the powders. After a week, he gave me another home based oil treatment. After 3 days, I was scheduled for a 5 day series of an ancient Ayurvedic technique for the lower back – ‘Kati Bhasti’. 1 Hour of herbal oil treatments on my lower back for 5 days.
Just after the first day, I felt soo much relief, it felt like the best thing on earth! I was able to stand straight and walk. The pain gradually started reducing over the 5 days. Besides the back, I felt so relaxed overall and happy.
On the 4th day after the treatment, for the first time I felt pain free in over 2 months.
It’s been a week after the treatments, the pain has drastically reduced. I feel energetic, and have been walking straight, doing light stretches. Am careful about my bending positions and body movements and hopefully with regular follow-ups I will be able to feel like a child again!
Dr. Ram and Sujata are beautiful souls. They are so kind and courteous. They adjusted based on my work schedule. Thank you sooo very much Dr. Ram and Sujata.
Friends, Ayurveda is an old and ancient science but not obsolete. Depending on one’s condition, Orhtopedic checkup, X-rays, MRIs may also be necessary. But definitely give Ayurveda a shot! I’d suggest going to a Ayurvedic doctor rather than a practitioner.
