Ankylosing Spondylitis PatientRohith, 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."

Severe Osteoarthritis PatientPulak, 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.
(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.
(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. 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.
(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.
(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
(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.
