Preventive Medicine

The most important prerequisite for successful wellness program is an in- depth assessment and diagnosis. At Dharana, your wellness journey begins with a thorough evaluation and diagnostic testing which helps determine your current health status needs. Our approach through advanced testing procedures are capable of detecting aberrations in your health at an early stage.

Health anomalies may arise due to genetic tendencies, unhealthy habits or as Ayurveda puts it, due to an imbalance of Doshas (Vata, Pitta ,Kapha). The Dharana approach works in the direction of achieving optimal health using a combination of modern evaluation and traditional medication.

Our Dharana experts take you through a detailed biomarker evaluation using genetic testing - depending on your length of stay and health goals, to design a life altering prescription with recommendations meant for you alone. We then create your personalised wellness program based on these results.


 

NATUROPATHY

At Dharana we focus on natural ways of preventing illness and addressing chronic health conditions; Naturopathy forms a part of traditional medicine that stimulates wellness by ascertaining the unique aspects of an individual and then retaining non-toxic natural therapies to reinstate physiological and psychological balance.

The body has an intrinsic ability to sustain and restore health. We facilitate this healing process by eliminating obstacles to cure and identifying treatments to enhance healing. A comprehensive evaluation of one’s medical history, current health status and nontraditional laboratory testing can help identify food allergies or intolerances, impaired detoxification, nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalances contribute to conditions including arthritis, asthma, eczema, allergies, fatigue and lingering infections.  Based on the evaluation, our naturopathy experts prescribe a treatment plan that include diet and lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements herbs, homeopathy and acupuncture.

 

AYURVEDA

Our experts firmly believe that disease is due to an imbalance or strain in a person's consciousness; at our wellness centre lifestyle interventions integrated with natural therapies help an individual restore a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.

Our Ayurveda treatments begin with an internal purification procedure, followed by a personalised Ayurveda inspired diet, herbal remedies, massage therapy, yoga, and meditation.

The concepts of universal interconnectedness, the body's constitution - prakriti, and life forces – doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) are the key basis of Ayurveda medicine. Objectives of treatment benefit the person by removing impurities, reducing symptoms, immunity to disease and reducing stress in life.

 

GENE STUDIES

Genetic research is at the forefront of clinical science. Gene studies related to metabolism, lifestyle diseases, physical performance, and nutrition now make it possible to incorporate individual genetic responses into treatment protocols.

The impact of diet, lifestyle, exercise, and environment on our individual genetic makeup should not be underestimated. Knowledge of how genes are activated by external factors enables the development of highly effective, personalized treatments. Whether you suffer from chronic disease or are at the apparent peak of fitness, a genetic profile can reveal the subtlest keys to proper treatment and training regimes.

Guests looking at enrolling for our transformational wellness programs (minimum length of stay 7 nights) can opt for genetic testing. Results offer a unique breadth of health profile: a gene-based healthy eating plan; dietary goals for relevant vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and foods; and nutritional supplement recommendations.

With this knowledge, our expert practitioners provide specific diet and lifestyle recommendations, taking the necessary steps to lead a life most favorable to their genes.

Our three DNA tests focus on health management, dietary disposition, and athletic performance. Each test provides a unique insight into a patient’s genetic code: revealing sensitivities, susceptibilities, and keys to their true health potential
