Ayurvedic Treatments: What Are They?

Ayurveda, stemming from the ancient Vedic culture of India, is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It is rooted in the belief that health and wellness depend on a balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Unlike Western medicine, which often focuses on treating specific symptoms, Ayurveda aims to promote overall well-being by balancing the body's doshas (bioenergetic forces) – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

Why Would Someone Need Ayurvedic Treatments?

People seek Ayurvedic treatments for a myriad of reasons. Some are drawn to its holistic approach that views health as a comprehensive state of physical, emotional, and spiritual equilibrium. Others turn to Ayurveda to address specific ailments – be it digestive problems, stress-related issues, chronic conditions, or simply to rejuvenate and detoxify their bodies. Ayurvedic treatments are not merely about ingesting herbal medicines. They encompass a broad spectrum of therapies, including diet modifications, massages with medicinal oils, detoxification methods, and meditation practices.

Integrative Nature of Ayurveda:

One of Ayurveda's defining characteristics is its integrative nature. It doesn't just emphasize healing; it stresses the importance of preventative measures to avert potential illnesses. This proactive stance is achieved through dietary recommendations, lifestyle changes, and periodic cleansing, ensuring that the individual remains in harmony with their environment.

Procedure Duration:

Duration of Ayurvedic Treatments:

The length of an Ayurvedic treatment varies depending on the individual's needs and the specific therapies being administered. Some treatments, like the therapeutic Ayurvedic massages, may take only an hour, while others, such as Panchakarma – a profound detoxifying treatment – can span several days to weeks.

Recovery Time:

Ayurvedic treatments, in general, are gentle and non-invasive. However, recovery or "settling" time is essential, especially after intensive treatments like Panchakarma. During this period, the body continues its detoxification process, and it's recommended to maintain a specific diet, abstain from strenuous activities, and follow the guidelines provided by the practitioner.

Post-treatment Duration:

While the actual therapy may conclude, it is often suggested that individuals continue with prescribed herbal medicines, dietary modifications, and lifestyle changes for extended periods. This ensures that the benefits of the treatment are sustained and integrated into daily life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What actually happens during hyperstimulation of the ovaries?

The patient will take injectable FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) for eight to eleven days, depending on how long the follicles take to mature. This hormone is produced naturally in a woman’s body causing one egg to develop per cycle. Taking the injectable FSH causes several follicles to develop at once, at approximately the same rate. The development is monitored with vaginal ultrasounds and following the patient’s levels of estradiol and progesterone. FSH brand names include Repronex, Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F and Bravelle. The patient injects herself daily.

What happens during egg retrieval?

When the follicles have developed enough to be harvested, the patient attends an appointment  where she is anesthetized and prepared for the procedure. Next, the doctor uses an ultrasound probe to guide a needle through the vaginal wall and into the follicle of the ovary. The thin needle draws the follicle fluid, which is then examined by an embryologist to find the eggs. The whole process takes about 20 minutes.

What happens to the eggs?

In the next step, the harvested eggs are then fertilized. If the sperm from the potential father, or in some cases, anonymous donor, has normal functionality, the eggs and sperm are placed together in a dish with a nutrient fluid, then incubated overnight to fertilize normally. If the sperm functionality is suboptimal, an embryologist uses Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection to inject a single sperm into a single egg with an extremely precise glass needle.  Once fertilization is complete, the embryos are assessed and prepared to be transferred to the patient’s uterus.

How are the embryos transferred back to the uterus?

The doctor and the patient will discuss the number of embryos to be transferred. The number of successfully fertilized eggs usually determines the number of eggs to be placed in the uterus. Embryos are transferred to the uterus with transabdominal ultrasound guidance. This process does not require anesthesia, but it can cause minor cervical or uterine discomfort. Following transfer, the patient is advised to take at least one days bed rest and two or three additional days of rest, then 10 to 12 days later, two pregnancy tests are scheduled to confirm success. Once two positive tests are completed, an obstetrical ultrasound is ordered to show the sac, fetal pole, yolk sac and fetal heart rate.


Built into this technology there is a microscope with a powerful camera that allows the uninterrupted monitoring of the embryo during its first hours of life. In this way, we can keep a close eye on the embryo, from the moment when the oocyte is inseminated and begins to divide into smaller and smaller cells, until it can be transferred to the uterus.

Orthopedics Stem Cell


Research on mesenchymal stem cells regenerative properties in knee osteoarthritis. In these studies, researchers suggest that Stem Cell Therapy has the potential to regenerate lost cartilage, stop and reverse cartilage degeneration, provide pain relief, and improve patient mobility.


Stem Cell Therapy as an Alternative to Rotator Cuff & Shoulder Replacement Surgery. Stem cell therapy may offer an excellent alternative for patients looking to avoid shoulder joint replacement surgery, as well as many other surgical treatments for shoulder pain.


If you suffer from chronic or acute ankle pain or instability due to arthritis, cartilage loss, ligament strain or tear, or tendon damage, then you may benefit from non-surgical stem cell treatments or stem cell-enhanced surgery.

Back Pain

Patients now have a minimally invasive option. Stem cell therapy for back pain and disc herniations can potentially repair the damaged disc or facet joint, restore function, rehydrate the disc, and ultimately alleviate chronic pain.

Anti-Aging Stem Cell

Hair Loss

Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy have been shown to be most effective for: Those in the early stages of hair loss, patients who are not viable candidates for surgery and women who prefer to avoid hair surgery.

Facial Anti-Aging

Aesthetic Anti-Aging. The Aesthetic Stem Cell Localized Treatment is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure to enhance the appearance of aging skin and hair restoration. This all-natural technique combines dermal injections of bone marrow or adipose tissue derived stem cells and growth factors.

Fertility Stem Cell

Endometrial PRP

The stem cells used for treatment of a thin endometrium include mesenchymal stem cells. In addition, successful repair of the endometrium in pregnancy with stem cells has been reported previously.

Low Ovarian Reserve (PRP)

The treatment uses PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma), which with stem cell therapy is the novel therapeutic approach for restoring the quality of the ovarian reserve.Your PRP will contain a physiologic balance of platelets, growth factors and white blood cells tailored specifically for you.
