Dear all, this is Dr. Sailaja, a highly qualified Senior Ayurvedic physician and practitioner in Singapore. I am graduated from a reputed and prestigious medical institute, DR. N.T.R University of Health Sciences in India. Having completed my bachelors in 2008, it has been 12 years since I have been practicing in the health and wellness industry. Notably in Dhanwantari Multi-Speciality Centre, India and specialized in specific areas of treatment in Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, India. I hold several certifications in specializations like Infertility, Cosmetology, Dermatology, Gynaecology and Panchakarma.

I am born in a Doctor’s family and have great passion for Ayurveda.

It has been a fantastic experience in bringing health and happiness to people’s lives by leveraging my extensive knowledge, skills and experience.

Ayurvedic Consultation: What’s my approach?

Generally, my consultation begins with an examination of pulse, tongue, eyes and nails.

This examination would help me assess 'prakruthi' (body constitution), 'agni' (digestive fire), 'ama' (toxins) and imbalance of the 'doshas'.

This would then be followed by a set of questions to understand the root cause of the issue. This includes assessment of current situation, historical case study, life style analysis, diet, habits, etc.

Upon wholistic understanding and assessment of the case, I prescribe appropriate ayurvedic herbs and therapies as required. Ayurveda’s aim is not just to treat the current ailments but to uplift the overall well-being of an individual and the society. With this objective, I would recommend lifestyle changes, dietary changes, yoga and meditation to maintain health and vitality in the long run.

Looking forward to meeting and serving you!

This is Dr.Farha Ansari, post graduated from acclaimed and honoured Ayurveda Medical Institute, SDMCAH, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka with a 'Doctor of Medicine in

Ayurveda' (MD, Ayu) in 2017,  after graduating from HNB Garhwal University, Uttarakhand with 'Bachelors in Ayurveda' (BAMS) in 2013.

Since then I have been practicing in the field of Ayurveda. I did my specialization in treating respiratory ailments like Asthma, Bronchitis, chronic cold. I also hold experience in treating skin conditions like, Eczema, Psoriasis; Musculoskeletal diseases as joint pains, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis; also Gastroinstestinal problems like Indigestion, IBS, Acidity.

I worked in various Ayurveda Institutions, one of them being, Patanjali Ayurveda College & Hospital, Haridwar, India run by yoga guru "Baba Ramdev", one of the leading name in Yoga and Ayurveda. Working in Institute helped me to upgrade my knowledge everyday by reading authentic Ayurveda textbooks regularly, answering queries to the learners of Ayurveda along with practically implementing the concepts in OPD with patients.

I hold RYT200 Certification in yoga. So, being a certified yoga trainer I support the treatment with suitable yoga postures and breathing techniques, helping in spiritual wellbeing.

I have experience of working in Panchakarma department, I personally performed various therapies to my patients like Abhyangam, Vamanam, Virechanam & many more. This experience helps to understand practically and personally the benefits and difficulties of the patients, thus I am able to give better advice as per patient's need.

I always believe in team work and success in treatment is a combined result of efforts from each component of treatment i.e., Physician, Medicines, Attendants/therapists and most important and crucial being the Patient.

My approach for treatment is completely as per Ayurveda teachings and methodologies. According to that, I analyse the complete physical, mental, emotional and social status of an individual, through different ways of examination as inspection, palpation and interrogation.

During consultation, I always keep in mind the first and foremost aim of Ayurveda "To maintain the health of healthy individual and to relieve the pain of diseased person".Based on this, I advise the

patients to incorporate healthy lifestyle which includes healthy diet and active daily routine, which is different for different individuals. So, reducing severity of disease to half by correcting lifestyle, as right food and daily routine is considered to be the best medicine and then treat remaining

half by Ayurveda therapies and medicines.

Thus, I always try my best to provide the complete HEALTH in words of Ayurveda, i.e., "A person is said to be healthy when one achieves a well balanced constitution, attractive appearance, good physical strength and complete peace of mind."
