It is best to book an appointment in-person prior to your visit to the centers, as same day appointments may not always be available. You can book an appointment by visiting one of the centers in-person. All therapies are prescribed by an Ayurvedic doctor, who will suggest the most appropriate oils and treatment for you.

It depends on the availability of slots for consultation.

Yes, there is a nominal consultation fee. The respective centers can be contacted for the fee.

The appointment requires up to 1 to 2 hours, including the registration process, consulting the doctor and purchasing medicines. Please plan accordingly.

You can choose a doctor of your choice, if appointments are available. However, all our doctors are trained in an integrated approach of intervention and can recommend the best that each system of medicine can offer to your specific medical condition.

We offer an integrated approach to medical interventions, which means your prescription is uniquely tailored to your medical condition drawing from the richness of the various systems of medicines offered. You can discuss these systems with our doctors.

For over 12 years we have offered an integrated approach to health interventions uniquely combining Allopathy, Ayurveda, Siddha and Yoga, which stems from Sadhguru’s deep understanding of the human system. We have specific treatment guidelines, intensive training and mentoring for our doctors and an iterative system where doctors incorporate feedback from patients in the treatment process. Ayurveda and Siddha medicines are natural and safe. Following our treatment regimen consisting of prescribed medicines, yoga, lifestyle and dietary advice will be very supportive for your health.

You can come with all your past medical reports and records, if you have any. If you are suffering from any chronic problems, you can make a chronological record of your symptoms and the treatment undertaken and dietary habits and lifestyle. Ideally, being on an empty stomach before your appointment is better for traditional diagnosis.

It is best you continue with your Allopathic medicines until you see our doctors. During your consultation, you will be guided on how best to proceed with any changes. In our experience, generally, allopathic and traditional medicines do not interact with one another. If there is a specific situation, our doctors will advise you.

Our medicines are prepared following rigorous methods of manufacturing, adhering to high safety standards. Some people wrongly believe that the Ayurvedic and Siddha medicines can potentially harm the body, specifically liver and kidneys. Medicines that are carefully prepared as described in the ancient texts will not cause any harm.

Some of our medicines do contain metals, however not all medicines contain heavy metals. When properly purified, these are highly effective and even curative for some diseases. All our medicines are carefully prepared as instructed in the ancient texts, under the supervision of experienced personnel. When prepared meticulously, the metals become medicinal and hence will not cause any harm. However, if you do not want to be prescribed medicines which contain metals, you can inform the doctor.
