PIYAS is a holistic health and wellness centre which is designed to be a one stop centre for complementary and alternative therapies and one of its kind and the first centre providing the best of both worlds – Wisdom of Ancient Sciences and the Knowledge of Modern Medicine integrated in an unique way to offer the best and scientific treatment options. We understand, diagnose and treat people with a holistic approach. Guidance from Consultants from various fields of medicine may be taken as and when required and treatments designed in consultation with them. Experts from different systems participate, monitor the health of patients and various treatments, which are done by well-trained therapists.
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare based on a belief in the healing power of nature. Our body has occult physiology – has awesome attributes of our miraculous self-repairing, self-replenishing, self-sustaining physique. Nature cure alone acts as an aid to support this natural mechanism of the human body. Nature cure uses an person-oriented approach rather than a system-oriented approach for health and diseases.
Nature Cure treatments are based on the five great elements of nature that have immense healing properties. There is no role of internal medications or drugs in the nature cure system. The five great elements of nature and the treatments based on them are:
Earth– Mud baths, Mud packs, Mud Wraps.
Water– Hydrotherapy methods – Baths, Jets, Douches, Packs, Immersions, Compresses / Fomentations.
Air – Breathing exercises, Outdoor walking, Open air baths.
Fire – Sun baths, Thermoleum baths, Magnetized water.
Space /Ether – Fasting (complete / intermittent)
Naturopaths are BNYS degree holders, which is a 5-year graduate course like MBBS or BAMS and have a good understanding of human body and diseases. They are complete holistic health care practitioners, which mean that they can treat the same conditions as a family doctor, including both acute concerns and chronic health conditions. They use the principles of natural healing to attend to the root cause of diseases.
Of course, we will. We are happy to let you know that we have started Integrative Medicine (IM) consultations at our centre for the benefit of all who come to us for a Holistic approach to Health and Disease management. We have observed that majority of the people who approach us come with large files full of multiple investigations and prescriptions (many a times unnecessary) and still unclear / confused about their actual problem. IM consultation is an attempt to make sense of you and your problems in light of your reports and clinical findings so that a holistic evaluation and approach to your health in a customized manner is possible. Our aim is to provide you the best guidance in an economical way and minimal or no medications.
We have been asking our patients what they want from holistic medicine in general and us in particular and they have been happy to tell us what is important to them: Addressing the cause of illness as well as the symptoms; being informed about various treatment options; having a balanced approach that recognizes body and mind; an approach that encompasses the uniqueness of the individual; natural, safe alternatives; focused on the whole person; positive; minimal drugs without associated side effects but having access to pharmaceuticals when needed; being listened to in a respectful manner; looking at the big picture; friendly and professional; generating wellness with the help of the patient; offering the broadest perspective possible in a way that supports and educates.

Breath plays a very important role in our life. It is the connecting link between the inner world of the mind and the outer world of the body. There are seven levels of existence: body, breath, mind, intellect, memory, ego and the Being. Meditation works by bringing an effect from the level of Being to the mind. With the breath we bring this effect to the physical level as well.

Yes, you can take treatments at home, but it is important to understand and learn the treatments before you do so. Also for people suffering from chronic diseases, it is important to take treatment under direct supervision of naturopath until the physical condition and various parameters stabilize. Our patients go home with a follow-up plan which is a mix of treatments, diet, and yoga. This helps them continue the benefits that they have had during the treatment at our centre.
Yes. But you need to register and have a consultation with us if you are coming for the first time. Your registration will be valid for a period of 1 year.
Yes, you can take only 1 or 2 sessions of yoga provided you have already completed any of our courses before.

No, this a myth which many of the people carry. But having said that it is also true that fasting of various types (Raw food, juice, water etc.) are used as therapeutic modality for detoxification and hasten healing. Fasting is scientific and is not to be compared with starvation. Every patient who is treated under Naturopathy is not put on fasting. In fact, there are conditions like acid peptic disease, diabetes, malnutrition, hyperthyroidism, chronic debilitating disorders, where we cannot put patients on complete fast.
The naturopaths examine the patients and only depending on their mental and physical state, blood pressure, pulse and state of hydration, they are put on a particular diet. Therefore, it is an absurd notion that patients are starved in Naturopathy. Long fasts for weeks together practiced in the past have been given up nowadays and instead of that short fasts and intermittent fasts (weekly or bi-weekly) are more practical and patients can implement easily at home.
If you are coming for the first time, please bring along with you a photo ID, passport size photograph, bed sheet, and a napkin for OP services. For In-patient a list of things to carry will be provided to you at the time of confirmation of admission. There should be a gap of at least 2 to 3 hours after a full meal before doing yoga.
Yes, we do. But our past experience with thousands of people have revealed that they are generally of limited utility especially in disease conditions and we would prefer you to combine it with some Yoga & Nature cure program for maximal and long lasting benefits.
As an In-patient your day normally starts by 6.00 am and you retire for the day by 9.00 pm. The day is occupied with doctor’s rounds / consultations, yoga sessions, naturopathy treatments, diets, healthy drinks, various short practices, prayer, some fun filled activities and of course all of these with enough time for rest, sleep and self-time.
