We must now retrace our way a little. It was mentioned that upon first breaking ground in the whale’s back, the blubber-hook was inserted into the original hole there cut by the spades of the mates.

Severe Osteoarthritis Patient — Pulak, Hyderabad, 18-08-2018
My mother had severe knee problem. She had so much pain that she was unable to even walk by herself. Doctor Chandra from Charaka advised "panchakarma" and knee treatment daily, for forty days. The treatment worked very well for her. After one month she was able to walk properly without any support. She can even climb stairs occasionally without any support. We were lucky that we got to know about Charaka in time and did not go to any other english medicine doctor.
Ankylosing Spondylitis Patient — Rohith, Andhrapradesh, 26-09-2018
"I got to know of Charaka and Dr. Chandrasekhar while browsing for Ayurvedic treatment in Hyderabad. I went through the numerous testimonials and decided to give it a try. I was suffering from pain in my lower back and SI joints which was quite irregular. There were about 4 instances of such severe pain in the last 10yrs which became a little more frequent starting Feb' 18. My symptoms included stiffness in the lower back, pain in the SI joints, stiffness in the chest area in the mornings which would subside during the day, and reduced appetite.
I was pretty impressed with the facility on my first visit itself - friendly staff, beautiful interiors, relaxing music in the background, airy and lit rooms, the whole ambience is soothing. I met with the doctor and since my HLAB27 test was positive, I was treated on the lines of Ankylosing Spondylitis. After assessing my condition, I was prescribed Panchakarma Therapy for a period of 2 months along with medication and very strict diet, the reason being certain foods cause inflammation and avoiding them is a must. The treatment was done in a professional manner by therapists who are warm and friendly. The treatment lasted 64 days and I am currently taking medicines. I was prescribed the same strict diet for another six months after which the restrictions would be lifted depending on my condition. It's been a month since I completed the treatment and so far I am feeling good. Although it is too early to tell, I believe the treatment and care given would help me come through this. I will revisit to detail my progress after six months.
In the end, a few words about the doctor. Dr. Chandrasekhar is a very friendly doctor and easily approachable. He is always ready to answer your queries very patiently and inspires confidence in his patients. I have seen many people recover from more severe conditions because of his skill and care. I would definitely recommend Charaka to my near and dear."
Slip Disc / PCOD / Hypothyroid Patient — Lakshmi Aparna, Hyderabad, 01-12-2018
I was experiencing severe back ache which wouldn't subside on taking rest, I suspected it to be something more than normal back ache. On my next appointment with doctor I informed him about the pain [I had already undergone treatment for PCOS (which is now cured
) and currently undergoing treatment for thyroid at Charaka]. He then diagnosed it accurately and on doing MRI scan it confirmed that I had two mild disc bulges in the neck and excessive curvature of spine. Doctor suggested 40 day Panchakarma treatment) which I undertook as I knew Doctor would cure it. I started recovering fairly from the 2nd week but being me I did mess up a little in between by over-straining myself. Doctor then told me to be careful during the treatment period as your body is quite sensitive at that time. After shirodhara and pizhichil sessions I felt major relief of about 50% and slowly the pain started reducing further. By the end of last week I was relieved upto 85%. Now its 2 months since the treatment and I have been relieved upto 90% (I know I should've recovered by now but my bad! Too much of strain). Hopefully in another month or two I'll recover completely.
Apart from all of this, Dr. Chandrashekhar is one of the very few doctors in these days who are dedicated to their profession and honest with their patients. I am extremely thankful to him for the treatment and the motivation that he gives me (as I tend to get depressive and extremely stressed up quite sometimes
) . Also, thanks to all the staff who have been extremely supportive and caring

“I have came to know about Charaka from one of my friend who was taking the treatment there. I have visited for consultation for my chronic (muscular dystrophy) condition . The experience has been brilliant and the results are great. Dr. Chandra Sekhar (Chief Vaidya) is an expert and can put you on best possible treatment for such illnesses. He monitors the treatment in person to ensure the best results. I used to go to many reputed hospitals before for treatment but the condition was progressive and after starting the medication at Charaka my condition is Stable, it’s been now an year.

Infertility Patient — Anil, Hyderabad, 31-01-2019
My wife was having urinary tract infection, we were taking allopathic treatment for more than a year. It was reduced but not completely cured. Also, I was having low sperm motility. Because of these reasons my wife was unable to conceive.
We thought of trying Ayurveda and came to know about Charaka. We consulted Dr Soujanya and Dr Chandrashekhar, they prescribed some medicines for both me and my wife. It took only 1.5 month to get the result and my wife was able to conceive. She faced no difficulties during pregnancy and had a normal delivery. We are blessed with a baby boy. He is now 4.5 months old and is very active and healthy.
We are very much satisfied with the treatment. Sincere thanks to Dr Chandrashekhar and Dr Soujanya.

My wife is suffering with pain in right knee n some pain in the waistline n back n shoulders n our well wisher doctor n prof. Ramasastry garu recommonded Dr. Chandrasekhar's name for total relief bcos pain is not relenting with the tablets.
I visited charaka panchakarma ayurveda hisoital with X Ray of both the knees n after checking Dr. Chandrasekhar said 'as per xray n initial checking there is ni big problem with the knee but she is experiencing severe pain n advised to go for MRI n knee screening'. After seeing MRI n knee screening doctor said some problem in L5 & S1 n sciatica nerve is troubling her n at knee it's palpitating, he suggested panchakarma therapy for whole body with special attention for knees.

CVA (Multiple Strokes) / Cerebral Atrophy / Parkinson Plus patient (daughter) — Dr. Shanti, USA, 05-01-2020
This review is long overdue. Our family benefited immensely from the treatment we received at Charaka Ayurvedic Hospital. Our treatment lasted four weeks, and as Dr. ChandraShekhar indicated at the very beginning of the treatment, given the advanced nature of our health conditions, we would have seen even more improvement with longer duration of treatment.
My father is 93 years old. He suffered a series of mini-strokes over past three years, and became very weak, unsteady on his feet, developed speech problems and lost the use of his right arm. Being a physician myself, after several months of allopathic treatments, physical therapy, and occupational therapy, I started looking at other options. It became clear to me after a few weeks of research that Ayurveda can actually bring about return of neurologic function better than any other modality. I tried booking treatment at a famous center in Kerala that specially deals with neurological diseases. And they politely told me that due to the advanced age of my father, they are not able to offer him treatment.
When I wrote to Dr. ChandraShekhar, I was quite skeptical. He immediately responded and informed me that all three members of my family can receive effective treatment at Charaka.
And we did. I suffer from Autoimmune disease, and obesity. My husband has psoriasis. And my dad had neurologic decline. All three of us returned from Charaka healthier than when we went there.
From initial consultation to the final recommendations at the end of treatment, Drs. ChandraShekhar and Sowjanya were excellent physicians. They not only provided highly effective treatment, but made sure that EVERY detail was taken care of, in order for us to succeed. We travelled from US for the treatment, and were not following the nutrition or the activities per treatment plan, mostly due to not having control over either matter. They thought of every detail and asked every day how we were going to make things work, and went above and beyond in helping us out in many ways. In my 30 years of career, I have seen the passion to heal in a handful of physicians, and they both certainly are top notch in that aspect.
The facility is pristine, and a haven for the people from Hyderabad as well as for those coming from out of town. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that there is no other facility in Hyderabad that provides such authentic ayurvedic treatments. It was such a relief for me that I did not need to go to Kerala with my 93 y/o father in order to receive treatment.
I did not go to Charaka to lose weight. I wanted to get a handle on my autoimmune disease. However....and I know people get excited about such things..I did lose significant amount of weight with the treatment, even in a short duration. And it was not 'water' weight. More importantly, I did not feel deprived, or tired. It was actually amazing! I felt light, healthy, and joyous, after a long time. Felt so energetic, I wanted to exercise again! Trying to stick to the principles I learnt from Dr. ChandraShekhar, so that the improvement continues.
My dad was able to move his right arm. On the days he rested according to the recommendations, his speech was clear. He was so wobbly at the beginning of the treatment, and by the end of it, he was able to walk with the help of a cane!
My husband was the toughest patient I think. He did not want to commit to the diet recommendations. But even without the Panchakarma treatment, he benefited from the medications Dr. ChandraShekhar prescribed.
The place is quite busy, and from the conversations with other patients, it is likely to get busier. And that is my wish for Charaka. In my opinion, Lord Dhanvantari definitely oversees the healing practices at Charaka. It is the best combination of professionalism, compassion and expertise.
Long live Charaka, and may it prosper and continue to bring good health to many more.

Slip Disc / Disc Herniation - Cervical / Lumbar patient — Ms. Pavani, Hyderabad, 07-12-2019
I am a 26 yr old IT employee. I had disc bulge/herniated disc at multiple places from neck to lower back. This made me restrict to bed. It was a serious condition which required surgery. But even the doctors were not ready to go for it considering my age and complexity as that was not the permanent/complete solution. Understood the situation and started researching on various options to get solution to my problem.
Then I found ayurveda has solutions for this and choosed Charaka Ayurveda.
As i was not able to move from bed and go to hospital, we have taken the home consultation. Dr. Chandrashekar has gone through the MRI reports and explained the severity of the problem. He then suggested a procedure that can be done at home because of which I gained strength to travel to Charaka.
Panchakarma was prescribed for 45 days.
Diet to be followed is explained to me.
Dr.Soujanya used to closely monitored me during the course and instruct the team accordingly.
Staff are well experienced and very friendly.
Now i rejoined my work and doing well with certain precautions. All this is made possible with the experience of Dr. chandrashekar and Dr. Soujanya and their motivation helped me to come out of that condition. They were always available on mobile whenever I required to speak to them.
Many thanks to Dr.Chandrashekar and Dr Soujanya.
I would definitely recommend Charaka Ayurveda for any kind of medical illness as this is natural way of curing by understanding the root cause of the problem.

I was suffering from morning stiffness and pain at various joints like knees, shoulders, ankles, neck pain, back pain for the last 8-9 years and diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis in the year 2017.
I had been prescribed by my rheumatologist a variety of painkillers, biologics and other medicine during the treatment. It seems like it was only suppressing the pain and once I stop taking the injection my condition will be back to square one.
So after failing to get any relief from allopathy I was looking out for some good ayurveda treatment and came to know about CHARAKA 'The Speciality Ayurveda' from google search.
I visited Charaka and consulted Dr. M Chandra Sekhar. Doctor suggested for a 90 days panchakarma therapy and to follow a proper & timely diet during and after treatment. I got the treatment done and must say I have recovered nearly 90%. Now I am able to carry on with my daily routines without pain.
Not only me my mother got tremendous relief after taking the prescribed medicine by Dr. M Chandra Sekhar for frozen shoulder and my sister also consulted him as she was suffering from severe allergic and breathing problem and the prescribed medicine has done wonders and now she don't have to use Seroflo inhaler on regular basis.
Apart from the best treatment the most impressive thing about the clinic is the excellent hygienic conditions and truly dedicated professional therapists & staff. Really worth to get treated here. I strongly recommend CHARAKA 'The Speciality Ayurveda' to those who look for long term and no side effects treatment. Thank you so much Dr. Chandra Sekhar & Dr. Soujanya. Keep up the good work.

(RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS and OSTEOPOROSIS) — Saroja kukatpally, Hyderabad. 19-12-2005
I am N.L.Saroja, aged 44 yrs and working in a bank for the last 23 yrs. I have enjoyed good health and vibrant life till the age of 38 yrs. But later slowly and steadily I have observed that I have started body pains and when I went to Physicians, the problem was diognised as RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS WITH EARLY OSTEOPOROSIS, and medicines were given. But the problem persisted and became more and more severe. I have consulted Dr.Rama Sastry from Govt.Ayurvedic Hospital and he had advised me to consult Dr.Chandra Sekhar at Charaka Hospital, P.G.Road, Secunderabad.
In 2005 I underwent extensive PANCHAKARMA TREATMENT wherein treatment was given initially with powder, oil and herbs, medicated oil and finally with milk and rice flour for 8 weeks and I was prescribed certain medicines and tonics also during the treatment period. Once the PANCHAKARMA TREATMENT is completed, certain medicines, capsules and also some tonics were prescribed for regular usage. I have started recovering slowly and steadily once I started taking the treatment and the impact became more and more prominent as the time passed. I could not do my daily chores without using pain killers daily, prior to the treatment, whereas the usage of pain killers has been totally stopped after the treatment. The movement of the body has become more comfortable and natural. The pain in the joints i.e., in every joint of the body has reduced steadily and now it is almost nil. With the prescribed medicines used regularly and with the diet suggested by Dr.Chandra Sekhar I am very happy to regain my health to a large extent and I am feeling very normal and free from sickness, which would have crippled me a lifetime.
I am really impressed by the treatment given and the commitment shown for the treatment by Dr.Chandra Sekhar and his team in treating me effectively.
I am thankful to the girls who helped me to regain my lost health and ever grateful to Dr.Chandra Sekhar and Dr.Rama Sastry for giving me the required Ayurvedic treatment and brought me out of the great mental agony and I am enjoying good health today.

The treatment was quite rigorous but there were no adverse effects. During the treatment there was no weight loss, my appetite seemed to improve and energy level increased.
My overall condition improved. No additional areas with muscle wastage occurred. On the contrary, there was remarkable improvement of left shoulder / deltoid muscle tone along with similar improvement of left buttock area. The foot drop did not get worse; in fact it showed some improvement.
While fasciculations remained, almost no new areas of the body experienced them. Exception being right deltoid area. But overall their frequency decreased and the length of their duration decreased also. The improvement was 40% in this respect.
I get the sense that the progress of my disease has substantially decreased to a point where at this time it may have been arrested. Of course, time will tell if that is the case.
Great job!! Great staff!
Everybody was very dedicated and treated me sincerely. Thank you.

(MND patient) — G.N Thambe Nagpur – (M.S) 04-06-2010
I am suffering from MND for the last three years. I am lucky that I have been diagnosed for the disease at a very early stage, when only my hands were affected. Since then physiotherapy and electrical stimulation treatments are continuing on a regular basis. But not only there is improvement. Actually there is gradual advancement of the disease in both the hands. Other parts of the body are not affected. The strength of my hands is going down and fingers of my hands are not remaining straight.

There is also slight improvement in the strength of my hands and flexibility in my fingers is also slightly improved.

Diabetes Patient — Mr. Praveen, Andhrapradesh, 19-01-2019
At first I don’t have a good opinion on Ayurveda but I took my father who is diabetic to Charaka and to my surprise I have seen positive result. I know that allopathy will have negative effects for sure but I trusted that it will give result but later I came to know that it will have huge side effects when someone use it for long time. But Ayurveda is not that kind. The results were slow but worth it. No loss in strength and you look more healthier. Dr Chandra Sekhar gaaru is a very cool man and will guide you in every aspect. If you are looking for the better treatment for your problem, give a try. You never regret. But the medicines are quite expensive but not more than allopathy meds. I personally loved the ambience
(PARKINSON’S DISEASE patient) — Ali Arif, Dubai,UAE, 04-11-2010

The treatment began on 05-09-2011and conducted in 3 stages. Each stage ran for 20 days with a duration of 1.5 to 2 hrs each day.
After the completion of every stage, I could observe certain improvements in my minor ailments in small measure. Right hand palm gained strength. The improvements observed were not permanent. One day positive and the other day reverse. However, I could feel that buttoning of shirts, holding objects in right hand can be done with more ease than before. The weight has come down by 2 kgs.
The muscle movement has been minimized to a larger extent. But there is no improvement with respect to speech impairment and excessive / salivation. Upon comparison of photographs taken before and after the treatment, it can be observed that there is some amount of muscle growth in the body and slight widening of the tongue leading to a small protrusion outside the mouth.
The doctor has informed that certainly the body weight will improve by 3 kgs slowly and also other problems.
The doctor has been very much regular in supervising the treatment everyday and kind enough to hold consultation with us as and when required.

(SLIP DISC / SCIATICA patient) — Mr. Kumar, USA, 13-03-2016
My condition before treatment: I had a back pain which became severe after lifting some weights, I had pain in lower back as well as sciatica pain radiating in to my left leg and right shoulder. Dr Chandrashekhar did an accurate diagnosis and later MRI scan also confirmed a fairly large disc protrusion at l4-l5.
During Treatment: I had a 45 day Panchakarma treatment and medication. Dr monitored my progress and changed the medication accordingly throughout the treatment. After 2 weeks my pain reduced by about 20-30%, by 4th week I was better by 50%, I noticed a very good progress in 5th, 6th week of the treatment where I got 80 – 90% better and I could also sit comfortably without sciatica pain my leg.
After treatment: Two weeks after the treatment I am feeling 90% better and I feel confident about further improvement.

(ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS patient) — Mr. Aditya, Hyderabad, Telangana, 19-03-2016
I have had AS (HLA B27+) for 22 years now. I am diagnosed when I was 10 and right now am 32. My Rheumatologist put me on NSAIDs (sulfasalazine) and as I grew, the disease took a toll on me and the dosage has been gradually increased and there came a saturation point where even pain killers weren’t helping me. I was then put on modern expensive biologic -Enbrel and literally survived on it for close to 8 years. Over the years the disease affected my ankles, knees, hip, neck, shoulder, lower back, spine and not to forget the unbearable butt pain. There were days where I literally used to cry all alone unable to bear the pain and have had countless sleepless nights. The only saving grace was that none of the joints got fused as I tried maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle throughout. Swimming helped me big time.
I got to know about Charaka and Dr. Chandrasekhar through a friend and colleague of mine who himself got cured of Rheumatic Arthritis and I visited him in Oct’2015. I was never a firm believer of Ayurveda having tried allopathy for 22 years, homeopathy for 3 years and also naturopathy. Initially, I was apprehensive to try the Ayurveda regime – treatment and the diet having had a prior bad experience with naturopathy. But all my thoughts were brushed aside within a few days I started the treatment.
Chandrasekhar sir is very approachable, patient enough to hear all what I had to say and gave me enough belief that my life is going to change for good. He has such a wonderful team of trained therapists who made me feel at home during the course of the treatment. And I’ve been 100% true to prescribed diet since I started my treatment at Charaka and have undergone about 110 days of Panchakarma treatment.
At this point I am off of biologics for 5 months now – never before in my last 8 years and I am about 85-90% symptom free except for manageable neck and hip pain. It’s been 2 months since I completed Panchakarma process and I feel that I am in the right path of symptomatic cure.
It is with deep sense of gratitude I thank Chandrasekhar sir and would strongly recommend Charaka to all those ailing from chronic diseases. Thank you Charaka!!!”
(PSORIASIS patient) — Mr. Rao, Hyderabad, Telangana, 11-04-2016
On my left ankle a patch of psoriasis appeared in the beginning of 2013. First I consulted a dermatologist who said the cure would be a long process and the medicines may give some side effects. Scared of side effects, I tried with Homeopathy without any success.
Then I decided to have treatment with Ayurveda and consulted Dr.M.Chandra Shekhar of Charaka (The Speciality Ayurveda and Institute of Panchakarma & Research) in July 2013. Dr.Chandra Shekhar assured me that the psoriasis would be cured with Ayurveda medicines without any side effects and started the treatment from July 2013, with some simple food restrictions during the treatment. I had a regular treatment from July 2013 to October 2015 from Dr.Chandra Shekhar and after that the patch of psoriasis on my ankle completely disappeared.
I am thankful to Dr.Chandra Shekhar for his wonderful treatment and also I appreciate his assuring and humane approach towards me during the treatment.
(PARKINSON’S DISEASE patient) — Mr. B. Rao, Hyderabad, Telangana, 08-06-2016
I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease Stage-1 (in Allopathy). The major external symptoms at that time were: tremors in one hand, stiffness of most of the muscles of that hand and cog-wheel movement of the joints of the hand.
As other streams of medicine mostly have only palliative approach to this condition, I chose to go for a holistic treatment. Ayurveda utilizes the best holistic approach to the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease where the external symptoms are addressed by treating and rejuvenating the internal systems of the body and the brain.
So, I immediately visited “Charaka Institute of Panchakarma and Research” for a detailed diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of my condition. I was treated for 50 days. Various required treatments and procedures were utilized in the process.
Dr.Chandrasekhar, the chief Vaidya has done wonderful diagnosis and prescribed and executed remarkable treatment. He is assisted by a group of very efficient therapists (who are all trained in Kerala system of Panchakarma, Kaya-kalpa-chikitsa etc.).
There was a gradual improvement in my external symptoms: the stiffness of muscles of the hand is gone — all the muscles of the hand got back their tone and became supple. Soreness in the joints of the fingers, wrist and shoulder reduced considerably and almost total flexibility returned. There is a marked reduction in the tremors both in the frequency of their episodes as well as in the amplitude of each episode.
In Ayurveda, since food is also considered as medicine, there are some restrictions on the food that I am supposed to take. I have been following all these instructions strictly and taking all the prescribed medicines systematically. A follow up checkup is scheduled after a month and more reviews might be taken in future.
In summary, I went for this therapy as Ayurveda gives time-tested improvement for Parkinson’s patients. I am very happy with my selection of “Charaka Institute of Panchakarma and Research” as the place of treatment.
(ROSAI–DORFMAN DISEASE patient) — Mr. G. P. Rao, Hyderabad, Telangana, 27-07-2016
Is there any medicine for Rosai Dorfmans disease(auto immune disease)? No. Not at all. But a miracle happened in Charaka Ayurveda. Here is the success story.
My wife smt.Padmaja was suffering from complete blockage of nose since January 2011. We approached ENT specialist in KIMS. Doctor has suggested to undergo surgery for sinusitis. Thinking that it may reoccur she started taking Homeo medicine. For sometime there was relief, but in August 2012 she suffered from high fever and a small lymph node started growing on the neck. Temperature came down after taking Antibiotics, but the lymph node started enlarging with no pain. By February 2013 problem became severe with 5- 6 enlarged Lymph nodes on the neck. She could not breath without nasal drops at least two times a day.
We approached ENT specialist in KIMS again in February 2013. Suspecting Cancer biopsy was done. But surprisingly that was not cancer and was diagnosed as Rosai-Dorfman’s disease ,a very rare Auto immune disorder. There is no established medicine till now we were told. Then we consulted ENT specialist in CARE Hospital. In May 2014 CTScan was done again and the readings were shocking. Para nasal sinuses were completely filled with mass and the mass growing around the orbit of eye pushed it 4mm. Then endoscopic surgery was done to remove mass from para nasal sinuses. He could not approach orbit as there was a risk involved for loss of sight. He suggested us to consult Doctors in L.V.Prasad Eye Institute. There a Dr specialist in Occuloplastics prescribed High doses of Cortico steroids(500ml every 21st day in 6 cycles). After treatment CT scan was done and there was only 10 percent improvement. He suggested her to try immuno suppressant medicine.
At this time on the suggestion of our well wishers we approached Charaka Ayurveda that is in March 2015. Initially we were hesitating to start treatment. But we did not have any other option she started taking medicine. Up to August 2015 swelling on the neck remained same. From August 2015 size of the lymph nodes started decreasing. So we continued the treatment. By April 2016 ,90percent of the size decreased. Now all the doctors we approached earlier are telling that a miracle happened. She is able to breath normally and there is no swelling on the neck now. I am very thankful to Dr. Chandrashekhar who treated my wife. Thank you very much.
Jai Ayurveda our own ancient form of medicine!!!
(SLIP DISC patient) — Mr. Dinakar, Hyderabad, Telangana, 12-08-2016
I have seen a miracle with treatment at Charaka. I want to share my experience below.
“My Dad suffered with ‘Lumbar Canal Stenosis’ or ‘disk bulge’ at four sections on spinal cord. We have taken three opinions at three different hospitals. The only option left for us is go for a surgery to ensure the issue does not deteriorate further.
My dad’s age and complete recovery for this issue were holding me back from going for a surgery. Before giving a commitment for surgery, I checked Internet for options to fix this issue without surgery. I found Charaka.
It took 45 days for the treatment to complete. A person who was half bend while walking with severe pain in the abdomen area and frequent gastric trouble is now walking & sleeping straight with no pain or gastric trouble.
It is a recovery of more than 90% without operation or steroids. It is a miracle indeed. Thank God for Charaka. My heart felt gratitude to Dr.ChandrasHekhar and the entire staff. God bless.”
(SLIP DISC / SCIATICA patient) — Mrs. Meena, Australia, 29-01-2017
I have been suffering from spondylitis and sciatic pains for a very long time. Most recently the base of the neck got swollen and there was severe pain from my neck downwards into my spine and extending to the left side of my body. I also had severe back pain and twitching in my legs. I felt numbness in my arms and fingers. The doctors in Melbourne diagnosed this as Osteoarthritis and prescribed strong pain killers to manage the pain. However, the pain persisted and could only be controlled with Morphine. Obviously, these medicines had very strong side effects.
I visited Hyderabad and decided to undergo Ayurvedic treatment. My son found this clinic on Google and found it had very good reviews. I met Dr Chandrashekar and discussed my problems. The doctor gave me some pills and oil to apply and recommended that I undergo 45 days of Panchakarma treatment. After the treatment, the spinal pain, back pain and numbness in my arms and legs vanished. My left arm which had restricted movement, was also cured, so that I now have full movement.
The doctor and the staff were very professional and provided excellent treatment. I highly recommend the clinic.
(SLIP DISC patient) — Mr. Rajashekhar, Hyderabad, Telangana, 19-02-2017

After treatment: Two weeks after the treatment I am feeling 90% better.

Moving my body one place to other place was a hell to me. I use to close the door and shouted due to unbearable pain. The pain use to get migrate one joint to another joint. Those joint parts gets swollen with reddish. A well-known orthopaedic doctor started Steroid Treatment. Due to this steroid I observed many side effects like, highper tense, too much hungry, gained heavy weight, drowsiness etc…which were damaged my total health and caused lot of disturbance at workplace. I went to depression, If I stop Steroid RH pain will kill me, if I continue other disorders devastates my life. My family members worried a lot about me. Two months i have seen the real hell.
During that time, my elder brother Bhanu suggested me “Ayurveda- Panchakarma” which is giving great cure to RH. I did not believe and due to his force, I treated a trial before a final call and visited “CHARAKA” an Ayurveda Hospital. I met Dr. Chandra Shekar who is having divine healing hand (11th October 2015). He starts his treatment by healing our mind from disease initially. Later I took 120 days “Panchakarma” treatment. Treatment will be done in 4 segments. 1. Giving oral medicine 2. External treatment by different types of Body massages 3. Clearing of internal Toxins with scientific processor called “Vamanam” and “Thaila Vasti” and 4. Mandated Diet control.
After this treatment I can say its really second life to me, I lost 12 KGs of weight, no swelling and pains in joints and feeling very lite till today (Feb 2017). I am having my routine life with strict diet instructions and periodical checkups.
Hospital ambience is full of divinity, all medical staff are very cordial and caring and Dr. Chandra Shekar speaks very less but high power of optimistic.
Thank you so much Charaka for boon of this life again

(ULCERATIVE COLITIS patient) — Seema S, Australia / Hyderabad, 15-11-2012
I am a patient of chronic Ulcerative colitis, suffering from 7.5 years. I have shown in many different hospitals like Apollo, Arogya, Vidyasagar, Asian Institute and also took treatment from Dr.B (Homeopathy). But nothing was cured and I began steroids.

(CROHN’S DISEASE patient) — Dr. S.M, USA, 17-11-2012
I want to drop in a testimonial so others can benefit from my experience as I did by reading the testimonials written by others at CHARAKA. I am 33 yrs old female diagnosed with Crohn’s in 2009 which is an auto immune disease which has no cure in Allopathy, so basically the treatment is to suppress the immune system to prevent flare up. I did not like the concept of suppressing my immune system with the medication and be prone to more diseases but did not have a choice.
I was put on steroids for few weeks but as my dosage tapered my Crohn’s flared up again, so my gastroenterologist decided to put me on Humira which worked great for my Crohn’s. I was on Humira for about 18 months and my condition was pretty stable. I developed a lot of major side effects with humira like psoriasis, arthritis and boils. I consulted concerned specialists for the side effects and was recommended more medication and none of the specialists were willing to believe that Humira could cause these side effects as the same medication is used to treat them. Being a dentist I was unable to work with my arthritis, so I decided to quit my job and try Ayurvedic medication.
I did some search online and decided to go with CHARAKA after reading the testimonials and I am glad I made a good decision. I was nervous to stop Humira as my Crohn’s would flare up without medication as it has happened before, but I stopped taking Humira and was on liquid diet for 2 months until I came to India and consulted Dr. Chandrashekhar.
I was really impressed by his knowledge about the disease and his treatment approach. My Crohn’s is pretty stable for a year now with Ayurvedic medication and modified diet. I was given medication for my psoriasis and boils for 2 months and my condition completely resolved and never recurred. The specialists that I consulted in USA for psoriasis and arthritis were surprised that my condition was cured with Ayurvedic medication as they are unaware of Ayurvedic approach of treatment and were curious if Ayurvedic treatment is available in USA.
During the course of treatment I got pregnant and the dosage of the medication had to be reduced, so Dr. Chandrasekhar had adjusted my medication dosage so that my condition is stable without causing any adverse effects on my baby. He also gave me medication to support my pregnancy as I had Incompetent cervix and was on complete bed rest. I am blessed with a healthy baby girl.
I feel that Dr. Chandrasekhar recommends appropriate and necessary treatment for the patient rather than treatment to make money as some of the doctors do.
Dr.Chandrasekhar is very patient, listens to your concerns and attends to our problems with utmost care. He is always available on phone to answer your concerns. The professional and empathetic approach of the doctor is commendable.
I thank Dr. Chandrasekhar from the bottom of my heart for helping me regain my health and would definitely recommend him to anyone. I feel he is one of the best doctors I have ever met.
My parents also underwent treatment at CHARAKA for sciatica and were pleased with the doctor and staff.

(MND / CERVICAL DISC HERNIATION Patient) — Srinivas Secunderabad 22-09-2013
I am Srinivas working as software architect. For past 3 years i have been suffering with cervical spondylosis. In the month of March 2013, I lifted heavyweight which resulted in significant pain in the neck, left hand and few fingers in the left hand. Initially approached allopathic doctor, went to physiotherapist also. But none of these gave any relief.
In the month of April (almost end) I approached Dr.Chandrashekhar (Charaka) for initial analysis and treatment. He noticed muscle loss in my left hand and also back of my body. He advised to go to MRI, ENMG. MRI confirmed C4/C5 getting bulged out. ENMG confirmed certain nerve related aberrations.
Doctor confirmed I could be in the early stages of MND (motor neuron disease). MND is a life threatening disease if not treated well with result in loss of life (this may take anywhere between 3-5 yr). There is no cure for this disease in allopathy.
Treatment started around in the month of May (Panchakarma, for the duration of 2 months, with special emphasis for MND). After 2weekss noticed that there is a slight improvement in the muscles growth in the left hand. After 1 Month the pain reduced by 50%, end of the treatment 80% of the muscle loss was recovered.
I also was suffering with Psoriasis, so doctor took care during the treatment that Psoriasis is under control.
Now after six months, I am relieved with 80% of the pain and Psoriasis is under control. I am very thankful to the Doctor, his employees for taking enough care during the treatment. The employees are very friendly and take care of patients.
Doctor advised certain food and mobility restrictions for the rest of the life to get fully relieved from the disease. Every month I visit him for general review and GBM (general body massage).
I hope in the next 6 months, I would be fully relieved from the disease.

(ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS Patient) — Suraj, Nepal, 09-01-2014
I was suffering from Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) from the last 5 yrs. I tried allopathic medicine during this period but the condition got more worsening rather than improving. It was only short-term pain relief management, the progress of AS was continued during this time.
Initially inflammation/pain started in sacroiliac joints/pelvic region and gradually in lumber /spine and neck. Before coming to CHARAKA my condition was very difficult, neck was completely stiffed and difficult to move, similarly hip joints had chronic pain& even difficult to move/work. I was in very pity condition because of AS. I found there is no cure of AS in modern medicine/allopathic treatment. I got CHARAKA in searching internet and came for treatment.
After getting treatment of 92 days in CHARAKA, I am feeling quite comfortable. My spine & neck mobility have came again in normal condition, sharp stiffness in sacroiliac joints have gone down and little pain in this parts remain, there is light pain in back shoulder too.
I am satisfied with the treatment /therapy in CHARAKA. I found Dr. Chandra shekhar sir is highly Professional, supportive, cooperative and friendly. I hope he gave me new life and took out me from the hail of AS.
I am really obliged to CHARAKA family and especially to Dr.Chandrashekhar sir.

(ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS Patient) — Ujjwal, Hyderabad, 26-03-2014
History: Was diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis at the age of 17. In last 15 years, hip joints on both sides and Upper back got severely affected. Every day movements depended upon allopathic medicine-sulphasalazine 1gm twice daily and other pain killer, almost 5-6 times every month. Also under took Homeopathy for 4+years with little relief.
Current: Underwent Ayurvedic treatment for last 3 month, which involved diet restriction, massages and medication. As on date I do not take any more allopathic medicines. I am able to work and perform all daily activities with ease and comfort. Early morning pains have almost gone overall health is also good. I am almost 90% better then what i was 3 months ago. The Doctor is very good and staff members are very helpful.

I was also told that there is no cure of this ailment.
I came to know about Charaka through internet and reviews regarding curing AS, luckily it was very near to my office and I went that day itself.
I went through 3 months of Panchakarma treatment with medicines as prescribed.
Presently Pain in my left leg is 95% OK and I am able to carry out my daily activities and makes me more confident.

(SLIP DISC / DISC BULGE patient) — Kiranmayi, Hyderabad, 22-06-2014
I had a severe backache and couldn’t even move or walk comfortably. I had used English medicines for 10 days and couldn’t find any improvement.
I was really worried about this and eventually came to know about CHARAKA through internet and found very good reviews on Dr. M. Chandra Shekhar.
I was diagnosed with disc bulges for 2 discs and Panchakarma was suggested for me for 40 days. I strictly followed the diet and medicines prescribed by him, besides with Panchakarma treatment.
I definitely feel 80% improvement is there and can walk easily and can do my activities comfortably. Hope will be 100% very soon.
Really thankful to Dr. Chandrashekhar to listening to me all the times and directing the treatment in right way. Therapists and other staff are really professional, polite and cooperative in CHARAKA.
(SPINA BIFIDA Patient) — Soumya, Hyderabad, 20-07-2014
Considerably large difference experienced in my spinal cord pain and legs. Great care taken by the therapy unit team.

Painlessness is now known to me, only after this treatment.
(ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS patient) — Mr. Vishal, India, 29-08-2014
I have AS. I got 1 bout of Uveitis in 2009 and found out that I am HLA B27+ve then. I was put on steroids and then eye inflammation subsided. In 2013 December I started getting lower back pains. After ignoring the pain for 2 months I got myself checked from an orthopedic surgeon who put me on NASID’s and made me aware about my condition. He also referred me to a rheumatologist who concurred his decision and educated me on modern expensive biologics, which again was only a immuno-suppressant for temporary symptomatic cure.
After having learnt the status of modern medicine in (not) treating chronic AS, I went from the usual denial phase, to frustration, to submissive acceptance, to finally at mental peace terms with my condition. I could function with painkillers but knew that was not how life was going to continue. After having started treatment at Charaka my journey from a non believer in Ayurveda began and over a period of 3 months which I invested in my health I have accepted Ayurveda as a way of life solely due my 98% symptomatic cure. I have gained 100% faith and am on a path to total diseases cure. Off-course I am off NAISD’s and pain killers 98% pain free!
I recommend anyone to give Charaka a try and see if your body accepts Ayurvedic treatment, especially for chronic diseases which are non curable with modern medicine. Also, I feel very proud to be born in India, a country with such superior ancient heritage and medical literacy which modern medicine is yet to surpass.
I consider myself very very lucky that I cam across Charaka. Additionally, I really appreciate the doctor who is one of the most humblest and patient people I have come across. He also has a great trained team of staff members who support his vision.
Hopefully in some years I can say, I had AS.

(BACK PAIN / SLIP DISC / DISC BULGE patient) — Mr. Ramakrishna Sharma, Hyderabad, 21-01-2015
I am aged about 70 years, quite hale and healthy. Around last week of September 2014, I lifted a water brass vessel and after 10 days pain started in the lower portion of spinal cord.
Then I have gone to my allopathic physician who after examination informed me only due to muscle disorder pain is there and advised me to use pain killers.
There is no result and then I contacted my Ayurvedic Doctor Dr. Chandrashekhar who is our family doctor. He immediately started treatment with medicines for few days and massages. Even then pain was mounting on the spine due to which I was not able to walk and had to take support to walk. After seeing my serious position Doctor advise me to get MRI report.
After going through MRI scan and report, Doctor advised me to undergo massages (Panchakarma) for 45 days, use medicines, follow diet and also advised from time to time. At that time the position was, I was able to walk only with the help of two legs and two hands. To be precise, it is only like a goat or buffalo.
The treatment was started with massages, medicines and advises. It is like DEVOTION without break. Then comparable improvement was found week by week. Doctor was enquiring regularly, changing medicines, techniques in massage.
As on date I am in sound health position leaving 5% only to be recovered. I am highly thankful to Dr. Chandrashekhar and his CHARAKA team who are all devoted to duty, treating patients with care, diligence and kindness.

(PSORIASIS patient) — Mr. G N Rao, Hyderabad, 25-04-2015
I was suffering from Psoriasis for about last ten years. I have initially consulted skin specialist at Apollo Hospitals, Hyderguda. He informed that I am having Psoriasis and said that there is no medicine in Allopathy to cure it completely, only medicines will help to some extent i.e., inflammation etc. Later I tried Homeopathic medicine, though it helped a little i.e., didn’t spread much. Afterwards I tried Kottakkal Ayurvedic medicines for about two years, but didn’t help me much.
At that time, I came to know from the website of CHARAKA Ayurvedic clinic and from the reviews given by so many people. I came to the Doctor who told me that this will be cured completely, but it may take a little time.
I was very happy to note that about 70% cured within a month. There after I was following the medicines and diet restrictions strictly, and now on completion of two years, it has cured completely. Now there are not even scars on my body.
I am very much thankful to my Doctor, who was very cooperative and encouraging all through this period.
If my case helps to somebody, I would be happy.
Thanking you, Sincerely

(SLIP DISC / CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS patient) — Mr. Gandhi Reddy, Hyderabad, 04-08-2015 ( Hyderabad )
I have been suffering from back pain for the past 1 year. I had been using allopathic medicines for the whole year. Pain seems to go away temporarily and used to come back even after a slight physical stress. I had stayed in my home for an entire year to have rest at regular intervals to cure my back pain.
After a lot of discussions with friends and family members, I finally decided to go for Ayurvedic treatment at CHARAKA. Dr. Chandra Shekhar advised me to go for the Panchakarma treatment.
I stay in a place for from the hospital. So, initially I was scared to travel daily from my home to hospital. Doctor said it would not be a big problem and convinced me to come.
Treatment started and I used to travel daily from my home to hospital (40km two-way). Initially pain reduced after a couple of weeks and started to come back (very lightly). Doctor said it is because of the stress induced by the therapy. Treatment continued for nearly 2 months.
At the end of the treatment, I was able to walk freely and cured up to 75% of my pain. I am thankful to Dr. Chandra Sekhar for bringing me back to my life. Waiting for more recovery in next 2 months.
After one month, I am able to feel 85% – 90% recovery. I am really happy with the treatment.
(CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS / CERVICAL SLIP DISC patient) — Mr. T V Bhaskar, Hyderabad, 22-08-2015
I have heard the phrase, ‘health is wealth’ umpteen number of times. It did not strike me until I was affected by a severe cervical spondylitis. At 40 years of age, I am relatively young for this disorder. I had been to many hospitals and a good number of doctors have told me that my condition was severe and that I had hurt my back badly. I developed the pain in 2013. I don’t remember any particular instance of hurting my back. It was due to my life style. I used to work late and several times I used to sit long hours continuously at the computer and work. My MRI reports said that I had problems at C2, C3, C4, C5, C6 and C7. Physiotherapy, traction and medication could not help me, though they gave me some relief.
As I was experimenting with different doctors, my friends suggested me to try Kerala Ayurveda. Initially I planned to go to Kerala and due to circumstances and time, I started searching for Ayurveda centres in Hyderabad. One of my friends suggested me to try Charaka Ayurveda at Secunderabad.
I am happy that I met Dr. Chandrashekar. He assured me that I was going to be alright and normal again. He suggested 45 days of treatment. Under his supervision I successfully completed the treatment. I feel great and feel normal again without any pain. I love sports and I slowly started playing football as well.
My impressions about Charaka:
I found Dr. Chandrashekar to be a thorough professional. He was quite strict with regard to the treatment but very kind in his approach and spends a lot of time with the patients.
I found Charaka to be purely treatment oriented centre. It is not a FANCY massage centre.
The staff at the centre are professional and they did a great job.
Health is wealth again. Thank you.
(ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS patient) — Mr. Pradeep, Bangalore, 03-09-2015 ( Bangalore )
I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis in Jan 2014. The disease started to influence a lot in my daily activities, creating more stiffness in the neck and back. So I went to Kerala for 21 day treatment after which my condition got more worse.
Then I came to know Dr Chandrashekhar of CHARAKA. In June 2015 I visited the hospital and they advised me around 75 days of treatment.
Once the treatment got completed I am able to move my neck. Prior to that, I was unable to see them face to face as my neck was tilted downwards. My case has improved about 75% and don’t see much pain in the neck and head now.
I recommended everyone diagnosed with AS to invest their time in CHARAKA so complete treatment would be possible.
Thanks a lot to the staff, Therapists and Doctor for having improvement by overall health.
(ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS patient) — Mr. Swaroop, Hyderabad, 05-09-2015
Initially there was stomach problem for 4 months before the AS started. Although HLAB27 was negative, there was inflammation in my left hip joint and the symptoms almost resembled AS. Started Allopathy treatment and I was put on Sulfazine. These medicines created more stomach related problem which I was not aware of although hip pain was subsided.
Before starting the treatment at CHARAKA I stopped allopathy medicines and majority of the stomach related problems disappeared and my hip pain was 90% better after starting the treatment.
Initially I was under the impression that Ayurvedic treatment will not be as effective as Allopathy and takes much time. I was surprised to see the results in a couple of days after starting the treatment. I personally thank Mr.Chandra Shekar and the hospital staff for their services.
I suggest everyone who are suffering from Auto-Immune Diseases to give a try Ayurvedic Treatment at CHARAKA and see the difference.

3. Frequent burping
4. Sometime vomiting sensation
After starting medicines in CHARAKA, I got some improvement in my health and in two years almost 95% of symptoms are reduced and I am feeling very good.
In my opinion CHARAKA is best place for getting treatment for these type of disease.

(PCOS, Obesity & Infertility patient) — Mrs. Neha, Hyderabad, Telangana, 26-04-2017
I was suffering from PCOS from last 6 years because of which my weight increased and infertility. I took many treatments all types of allopathic, homeopathic, unani ,accupuncture don’t even remember how many things , but no results.my weight was increasing day by day and no monthly cycle, till I take pill for menses, it became a monthly routine for me. Then I decided to try with Ayurveda. I consulted Dr. Soujanya and started my treatment.
Firstly we did panchakarma (vamanam procedure) for detoxification and weight loss including massages for around 40 days, much weight loss but should follow strict diet. It worked miracle. Then after long time got my monthly cycle from where doctor started with Uttara basti treatment for next 3 cycles, which gave me relief from my pcos. And after that my periods are never disturbed ever again.
It took about 5 months for me for this treatment to get results(including Panchakarma) and overall my look changed I felt so energetic and healthy from inside.
Most Allopathic doctors say there is no treatment for pcos once it comes it will stay with u for life long and its genetical..etc(all wrong there is treatment).
I can’t thank enough to her and today also I am still in contact with her for any health issue, very much caring, very very encouraging and very tolerable.

My Daughter when she was 14 years had severe pain in the hands and legs. She was diagnosed as RA and with pain she had appeared her 10 th exams. When there was no improvement for around 6 months then we consulted another Specialist who had confirmed that my daughter is not having RA but could not diagnose as to what she was suffering from. She was unable to attend classes because of pain.
We came across Charaka while searching on internet. We consulted Dr Chandrashekhar who also had ruled out RA and had asked us to go for MRI and confirmed that she was having disc bulge. She was suggested 45 days Panchakarma treatment and assured that she would be cured 100%.
The entire staff of Charka are well trained and were very supportive. With the patience and support of Dr Chandrasekhar and his staff she has recovered completely and now is able to attend her classes.
We are very much thankful to Dr Chandrashekhar for the correct diagnosis and treatment.
(Ankylosing Spondylitis patient) — Mr. Rajesh, Hyderabad, Telangana, 22-06-2017
I am Rajesh, 32 years old and a native from Hyderabad.
All of the sudden in my normal life, I experienced a swelling in my left ankle and a terrible butt pain, even experienced a stiff neck and redness in my palm joints.
Consulted top doctors of Apollo and Yashoda, even after frequent visits, my ankle swelling and butt pain is not cured. But later, because of regular use of alopathy medicines developed body rashes, rashes used to appear for 15-20 minutes with severe intolerable itching and redness. It suffered me a lot for a week, I cannot played with my 3 year old daughter, since I used to see a rash in the place if she scratch me accidentally.
To give another try, I consulted Rheumatologist he after taking pelvis x-ray he diagnosed joints stiffness/swelling is due to Ankylosing Spondylosis and a skin problem as Dermographism or Skin Writing.
And said me that both of the problems doesn’t have any cure in modern alopahty medicines.
Thank GOD, when I explained my problem to my office college, I came to know that he also suffered with Ankylosing Spondylosis few years back and taken treatment at CHARAKA and got cured completely.
With his reference, I approached Dr. Chandra Shekar Sir, he suggested me to take MRI and few blood tests. Though, my HLA B27 test is –ve, but MRI reports clearly says that there is inflammation in SI joints and it is Ankylosing Spondylosis. So Dr. Chandra Shekar Sir suggested for a 90 days Panchakarma treatment. During treatment I used to call Dr. Chandra Shekar for all my questions, even at late hours, he is very approachable.
After completing 90 days of treatment, I really felt very confident, that I am on right path and taken a right decision to join CHARAKA.
I can see good results coming out, my health is becoming better. Ankle swelling and body rashes which suffered me a lot got cured completely, it been 2 months now I completed Panchakarma treatment and don’t even see a single rash on my body even if I scratch it intentionally, but pain also minimized to 90%.
I really thankful to Dr. Chandra Shekar and staff of CHARAKA, for giving me a new life.
(Ankylosing Spondylitis patient) — Mr. C. Akash, Hyderabad, Telangana, 10-07-2017
I was suffering from Ankylosing Spondylitis for past 5 years. I am 23 years old. It’s an incurable disease and can be only treated when it is at its extreme stage such as joint replacement, at most the pain can be relieved. I was posted in Hyderabad when my parents decided for Ayurveda treatment. We went to Charaka for consultation. The ambience, the aroma itself there was rejuvenating . I was guaranteed that I’ll be 90 % healed completely but the 10% depends on me. It took time for me to belief their ways of treatment as we are more accustomed to allopathic treatment with faster results. I underwent 3 months session.
In my initial stage I could only bend and touch till my shin. I barely ran, couldn’t play any sports instead I was not in a position to withstand any sudden discrepancies in my body alignment. Eventually, after undergoing continuous therapy, my pain was relieved and my body started becoming more complaint. Today I am able to play sports like badminton, swimming, even can touch my foot while bending straight. Whenever I find a chance I prefer taking a good spa from Charaka’s.
From my experience, one not only gets healed but also finds ways for a healthy living by inculcating good food habits and self-control. If you need a treatment which has no further side-effects then I must say it’s the best possible way to cure yourself.
(Slip Disc patient) — Mr. Vinod Kumar, Hyderabad, Telangana, 27-08-2017
I was experiencing unbearable pain in my lower back, which I consulted at various reputed hospitals and also visited many of the prominent physiotherapists who suggested me to undergo therapy which included Cold and Hot packs and indicated that it’s a muscle spasm which will be alright in some days. Things moved from bad to worse for me as I was unable to do my routine work and was feeling helpless with no ray of hope from any of the treatment I was undergoing.
I then decided to find ways through which backache can be treated effectively and one of the way I found was through Ayurveda and then my search for the best Ayurvedic expert lead to Dr.Chandrasekhar at Charaka, As soon as I explained my story of pain to Doctor, he advised for an MRI report, which clearly indicated a Disc Bulge which either would need a surgery or can be controlled through Panchakarma treatment. I decided to undergo the Panchakarma treatment under the supervision of Dr. Chandrasekhar with aptly skilled team regularly for next 40 days.
Today after 4 months I can say that I have recovered around 90-95%, which allows me to do my usual work and I can now play sports like badminton, cricket, running and so on. It gives me immense pleasure to get to back to my normal routine post my treatment. I am indebted to Dr. Chandrasekhar for his prompt diagnosis and recommending the most suitable treatment to handle the ailment in an efficient way under his constant guidance.
Once again, Thank you Doctor!

(Ankylosing Spondylitis patient) — Mr. Koushik, Hyderabad, Telangana, 11-11-2017
I was severely suffered from joint pains ever joint like neck, knees, hand (fist), index finger, right fore finger, left hand shoulder. I was unable to walk those pains were very severe. since I’m pursuing Btech in hyd normally I used to walk from bus stop to home I used to take 10 mins home but with these joint pains I used to take nearly 35-40 mins.
After approaching CHARAKA I found What is the problem in me, then the treatment (Panchakarma) started. The treatment will be around 2-3 months and coming to our food activities food plays a main role for this problem, we should avoid outside food, junk food, bakery items, non veg, alloo, bendi, pickles etc food items should be avoided without fail otherwise we cannot have any result .
Now I m good with this problem , I can walk, run like before.
THANK YOU CHARAKA.

(Infertility patient) — Mrs. Shailaja, Hyderabad, Telangana, 16-01-2018
We are immensely happy couple to share this feedback.
Before consulting in CHARAKA, we took treatment for infertility from various hospitals for nearly 5 years. We tried IVF also but couldn’t be successful. We tried Homeo and Ayurveda as well.
After approaching CHARAKA, doctor advised us to take Panchakarma and Uttara vasti treatment. In 9 months time I conceived and now we are blessed with a baby boy.
We don’t have words to describe how happy and satisfied we are. We are very thankful to Dr Soujanya madam for her professional approach and excellent results.
(Ankylosing Spondylitis patient) — Mrs. Jayshree Agrawal, USA, 10-02-2018
I was having lower back pain and pain in my alternating legs very frequently from past 2-3 years but I did not know that I have AS. I am 27 years old. In July 2017, I was confirmed by a rheumatologist that I am suffering from AS. I used to get morning stiffness and pain at various joints like knees, shoulders, ankles, neck pain, back pain and the pain intensity was be very high. When I went to the rheumatologist, he told me that there is only way to control this disease is by taking biologics and disease modifying drugs. I imagined my Iife with those medicines on a regular basis and opted not to go with allopathic medicines.
I took treatment for alopecia from Dr. Chandra Shekhar earlier and got excellent results. I talked to him about AS and he told me that it can be treatable with ayurvedic medicines and panchakarma therapy with strict diet control. And it is also possible to get complete cure. I took panchakarma therapy for 60 days. After first four weeks of panchakarma therapy, my morning stiffness symptoms were gone. After 60 days of therapy, I found 95 % relief from pain and other symptoms.
I am extremely thank full to Dr. Chandra Shekhar and team for their efforts changing lives. The staff at Charaka is very cordial and hard working. I highly recommend Charaka for any chronic health related issues you are dealing with.
Thank you Charaka, keep up the good work
(Autism Spectrum Disorder patient) — Mrs. Sailu, USA, 18-02-2018
Diagnosis : Autism Spectrum Disorder.
My Son was diagnosed with ASD when he was 2.5 years. We tried the traditional therapies including speech therapy and occupational therapy with 0 improvement. We were told there is literally any cure for this disorder.
As days passed by, it became difficult for us to handle his hyperactivity. We found out about charaka through friends and approached Dr. Chandrasekhar. He told us he has to undergo panchakarma therapies for 45 days and take medication for 2 years. We were skeptic about the treatment at first, due to personal reasons. but later decided to give a try.
When we consulted Dr. Chandrashekhar and Dr. Soujanya, their positive words gave us immense energy to do the panchakarma therapies for a 4 year old, who was very hyper and couldnot understand what was going on with him. But the staff, doctors, treated him like their own kid and dealt with him. Doctor used to answer my questions regardless of time and his busy schedule. About after 15 days into the treatment, I could see him bonding more with me, his eye contact improved, his hyperactivity decreased (a bit)!
Its been almost 1 year since we started the treatment, He has come a long way through.! His communication skills improved, He can understand and follow directions now. We are indebted to the doctor and the therapists.
I know, Many are in the same boat as me, finding ways to help their children with spectrum. Going the Ayurvedic route is the best thing they could do.
(Sciatica / Slip Disc patient) — Mr. Arun K Pandey, Hyderabad, 09-06-2018
I had been suffering from sciatica pain from September 2015 and had been to multiple doctors. I had been prescribed a variety of painkillers and complete bed rest for a long period. Even after this my movement was completely restricted, walking for even 200 meters was a major ordeal. I underwent multiple MRIs and consulted specialists who couldn’t help improve my condition. I was then recommended to get in touch with Dr. Chandrashekhar.
Dr. Chandrashekhar listened to the complete issues and suggested that I undergo panchakarma for 45 days. I was sceptical given that I had undergone angioplasty a few years back as to if I’d be able to go through it. Dr. Chandrashekhar assured me that it was not an issue and that it would be the best course of action.
Under his advise, I underwent a 45 day course of Panchakarma and followed it up with regular visits first every 15 days and then every month for past 5 months. In course of the treatment, I saw regular improvement and am now relatively pain-free and have much-improved mobility. I would say I have recovered nearly 80-90 % of my pre-illness mobility and am almost completely pain-free.
In addition to the excellent medical treatment provided I must also mention the clinic. The clinic is located on the penthouse of the building with the outside and the insides maintained with keeping in mind to comfort and welcome the patient or anyone else.
I have found that the clinic is extremely well lit with ample use of natural light and is maintained very cleanly and neatly. Unlike other institutions of similar nature, there are no powders or pill strewn in the dispensary or at the receptionist’s desk. The receptionist is knowledgeable and personable, as well as efficient. Setting up an appointment is minutes task. The clinic’s medical staff, most notably the ones responsible for patient’s care are extremely efficient and professional. They are all extremely well trained and maintain the highest professional standards like not reusing the same equipment, maintaining excellent personal hygiene and maintaining excellent hygienic conditions in the clinic’s patient care areas. The treatment rooms for patients are equipped with all the necessary equipment maintained in the best conditions and the staff is well trained to use them. Even the most uncomfortable procedures are handled with the utmost care and professionalism. The most impressive thing about the clinic is the excellent hygienic conditions and truly excellent professional staff.
(COMPLETE PARAPLEGIA (POST COCCYDECTOMY) patient) — Mrs. Aruna, USA, 27-07-2018
I, Aruna, was in unimaginably health wreck by the time I met you on April 16th and discussed the treatment options prior to it while I was at US (March-April) when the allopathy medicine failed to fetched me results or cure my medical ailment at US.
The Ayurvedic Treatment started with a wish that if we recover at least 1% of sensation and movement we would have accomplished a lot.
I must say over past three months of relentless effort, research and dedication of the Crew(specifically Binni, Swapna, Archana, Besley, Sharanya, and Chilku and all the countless girls and boys who lifted when I was completely crippled) and the Doctors(Dr.Chandrasekhar and Dr. Sowjanya)….I am today confidently able to walk and get over my health calamity of paraplegia which haunted me over seven months and the injury that severely bothered me over nine months.
The Panchakarma Treatment started on April 17th 2018 and I got the first result of sensation by May 27th, and more coverage by June and ultimately I got the Total Sensation and Movement by July 6th, 2018.
Special Kudos to the entire team for the Perseverance , Utmost Care, Hygiene, Discipline and Magic Medicine during the treatment. I sincerely hope your Research Medicine reaches more and more people in need for a Holistic Cure via Natural Techniques and via the Gift of Ayurveda.
I faced several cycles during the treatment where I was tested to the core but kept up the Morale with Patience and I must say the Hard work and Scientific Approach to Cure the Medical Calamity bore fruit and I cannot thank Charaka Ayurveda enough to the core for giving me a new hope towards life and giving my feet back to me.
I sincerely hope, you keep up the Good work and Continue to serve the Humanity via this Gift of Indian Ancient Medicine with a Modern Touch.
If my Smile today inspires more patients of you(as told by a few patients at the corridor talk of your clinic), the Credit goes to you all.
Thanks for this Gift of Life and I pray I preserve it with as much care as it was given to me
(Sciatica / Slip-disc patient) — Mr. Mansoor, Hyderabad, 03-08-2018
I had a back pain which became severe after lifting some weights, I had sciatica pain radiating in to my right. I found Charaka in Google and consulted Dr Chandrashekhar. He did an accurate diagnosis and later MRI scan also confirmed a fairly disc protrusion. During Treatment: I had a 45 day Panchakarma treatment and medication. Dr monitored my progress and changed the medication accordingly throughout the treatment. After 2 weeks, my pain reduced by about 20-30%, by 4th week I was better by 50%, I noticed a very good progress in the last week of the treatment where I got 80 – 90% better and I could also sit comfortably without sciatica pain my leg. Overall Experience: I thank God for leading me to Charaka, I want to thank Dr. Chandrasekhar for the treatment and I greatly appreciate his commitment towards improving the health of his patients. Also, I want to thank the therapists and staff at Charaka everyone was very helpful and committed. I have suggested my colleagues to Charaka who are facing problems related to current living life style.
