The treatment process is not simple as conventional medicine where doctor prescribes a medicine and the patient has to just take that medicine; Naturopathy involves a lot of discipline and effort on the patient part to receive the treatment; but once the patient has gone through that trouble they benefit from the treatment significantly. “Dr Jay Sanghvi, Company’s Medical Director explained.
Our present-day busy lifestyle with career on the fast track leaves with little or no time to mind one’s health. Fighting time and stress, complicated lifestyle changes have become the order of the day and the country is witnessing a rise in the incidence of lifestyle-related diseases like Neuro Muscular and Rheumatic conditions, Diabetes, Hypertension, Insomnia, Neurosis, Neurasthenia, etc.. “Bearing this unfortunate trend in mind, Swas Healthcare has incorporated in its treatment schedules, the science and art of appropriate living that helps to achieve overall health and longevity. Our objective is to guide individuals through a proper choice of diet, living habits and exercise in order to restore balance in the body, mind and consciousness, thereby preventing disease from gaining a foothold in the system,” Dr Jay Sanghvi, Company’s Medical Director explained.
Swas clinics are specifically planned in cities to improve access to qualified and reliable Naturopaths. The clinics have facilities for consultation and treatments. More intensive treatment and diet regimes are offered at the Swas Healthcare’s Ananddham Nature Cure Center in Kutch, where the list of treatment options is virtually unending.

Defining the role of naturopaths and therapists at Swas Healthcare clinics, Dr. Jay Sanghvi said, the clinicians work to recognise and remove barriers or impediments to the natural healing process. Naturopathy can provide people with the tools to take charge of their health and well-being and offers the best hope of preventing some of most serious and life-threatening diseases. “We plan treatment in such a way that one gain health in physical, mental, and spiritual aspect. For physical health we recommend appropriate Naturopathic, Ayurvedic, Yoga asana, diet and other therapies. These wholesome therapies combined with the vital force of mind and body, cultivate strong and lasting health.”
Public desire for greater control in healthcare process and the growing dissatisfaction with high tech solutions to health problems in the recent past has renewed interest in the natural methods of preventive health care. This trend has increased the demand for naturopathic services as people seek ways to improve their health, cope with day-to-day stresses and avoid illness. Naturopathy is one of the most effective methodologies in the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease, which rate as the country’s biggest killers. It is also effective in treating chronic ailments like arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Chronic kidney disorders, Neuropathy etc. Moreover, under the guidance of a qualified Naturopath, it can play educative, preventive, as well as curative roles.
While conventional Western medicine tends to deal with physical complaints only, often in isolation, Naturopathy takes in the complete physical condition plus lifestyle factors such as nutrition and exercise and emotional or stress concerns. Therefore, by providing a holistic, less invasive and more natural health system, naturopathic medicine holds the enormous potential to change people’s lives for the better. All this at a cost much lower than conventional medicine, just the medicine prescribed for bloating healthcare costs across the world.
