Ayushakti’s Treatment Fundamentals
Ayushakti believes in focusing on health and eliminate any disease from its root cause naturally without hampering your whole body. Metabolic Syndrome is primarily caused by overnutrition and defective metabolism tissue. Unhealthy dietary habits and abnormal functions of different sets of Agni (metabolic fire) give rise to formation of Ama (reactive antigenic factor).
- Balance Doshas (Correct aggravated Doshas)
- Agni Balancing (Rectify Metabolic fire)
- Aam Elimination (Remove block)
- Meda Reduction (Reduce fat)
- Detox (Remove toxin from the channels)
Dr Smita Naram and team have spent decades researching, with the goal of developing new treatments and eventually finding better cure. We have special therapies and Marma points which help to remove blockages and improve circulation and metabolism.
Detox (Panchkarma) Therapy
Detoxification Panchkarma includes five types of different detoxification treatments at deeper levels to eradicate the root cause of any poor health situation.
Panchkarma regulates the metabolism and removes excess doshas and toxins which are the main reasons of metabolic blockages and insulin resistance. It not only stimulates the pancreas to function but also reduces insulin resistance thus reducing blood sugar naturally.
Samshodhana and Samshamana therapy are important Ayurvedic therapeutic measures for treating various diseases.
Samshodhana is an eliminative therapy that addresses the underlying cause of the disease. Samshamana, on the other hand, is a Palliative therapy that includes procedures such as Mridu Virechan (light purgation), Shodhana Vasti (medicated enema), and Ruksha Udvartana (gentle rubbing of the skin with dry substances) that are commonly used in Metabolic Syndrome. Vamana (induced vomiting) therapy must be used with caution and under the supervision of a panchkarma (detox) physician.
The guidelines provided below may help prevent and treat Metabolic Syndrome. These Ayurvedic treatments are highly effective and risk-free.

Ayushakti Ayurved’s Take on Metabolic Syndrome
Between the age 15 to 40, our metabolism diminishes and the hormones change in both women and men. At that time it’s important to reduce wheat, deep fried foods and red meat, as much as possible. Children and grown-ups should eat in appropriate proportions.
The main symptoms of metabolic syndrome are obesity, dyslipidaemia and diabetes.
Ayushakti has treated 14360 persons suffering from Obesity and 9605 persons suffering from Diabetes and achieved many magnificent results during past 30 years.
A healthy lifestyle must be adopted to treat metabolic syndrome. The patient should exercise regularly and eat only easily digestible light foods. The body can sometimes be weak, and these anomalies are its cry for help. Ayurveda does not support a quick fix but rather a path to a productive, long, healthy lifestyle because these symptoms may reappear if the patient continues old unhealthy habits.
