GUWAHATI: Ayurvedic therapies are slowly gaining popularity in the state as people are finding them effective in treating various ailments ranging from slip disc to cancer.

Sri Sri Ayurveda Panchakarma Centre of the Art of Living Foundation in the city is trying to popularise such therapies. The centre offers treatment for joint pain, arthritis, spondylitis, sciatica, paralysis, insomnia, diabetes, sinusitis, migraine and respiratory ailments with different panchakarma therapies. To name a few, shirodhara is for anxiety and shirobasti is meant to arrest hair fall.

Savita Bhutani, the administrator of the centre, said, "The treatment and therapies offered by us are authentic. Unlike other ayurvedic centres mushrooming everywhere, we follow the original panchakarma ways of treating ailments as prescribed in the Vedas and Samhitas." She added that research on diseases like cancer is also on. For working professionals, there are special treatments for anxiety, hypertension and insomnia which are quite common these days.

"The main problem with people today is their diet as foodstuff is laced with pesticides nowadays. Even their eating habits are not right for which most of the problems arise. Proper diet can solve half of the problems," she said.

Sangeeta Dhar, an ayurvedic practitioner at the centre, said there is special treatment for eye ailments and infertility. Regarding treatment of cancer, the stress is more on reducing the pain.
