Why did you choose ayurved, Dr. Gupta?
I chose Ayurved because i was very fond of gardening in my childhood and nature always fascinated me. So, when i grew up and decided to study medical science, I opted for our ancient and traditional medicine system which uses natural herbs and plant extracts to treat various diseases. I knew that this was a subject that i would love to study.
What is your experience while treating patients? Do they trust the Ayurved treatment?
The experience is wonderful. Now more people are getting attracted towards Ayurved as they are getting amazing results without any side effects . That’s how they have developed trust in our pathy.
That’s really great to know, Dr. Gupta. Tell us about any challenge that you face as a practitioner?
The only challenge that i feel is the instant result that people want from the treatment. But as an Ayurvedic Doctor, I would like to emphasize here that since Ayurved treats the disease from the root cause, it takes time. So have patience and you’d be cured holistically.
Any out of ordinary situation that you have faced while treating a patient?
I treated a patient of obesity with Thyroid and PCOD problem and to my surprise, she lost around 30 kg in just 11 months with remarkable improvement in her Thyroid profile . Her PCOD problem just vanished. When the patients follow the Ayurveda advice and prescriptions religiously, they recover really well.
How effective is traditional medicine as a cure?
Traditional medicine is absolutely safe and effective and most importantly, it gives you overall health benefits and not just the relief from the Symptomatic problems only.
What do you think of Ayurved’s future and its role in integrated medicine?
Ayurved health science and medicine holds a bright and promising future ahead for sure with the awareness people are receiving about this pathy and the responses we doctors are getting. I am damn sure that the coming era will be the era of Ayurved.

I love reading Inspirational Books , Magazines, etc. Also, gardening is my favourite pastime along with sports. I love playing outdoor games and listening to music.
What message would you like to convey to the people on Wellbeing?
I feel that to be happy from inside is the most important thing one should aim for in life. And that’s the best mantra for Wellbeing. One should eat healthy, exercise regularly. If one follows Dinacharya (Daily Regime) and Ritucharya (Seasonal Regime) as mentioned in our ancient texts, there is no chance of getting ill. I wish the people to stay happy, stay healthy. Ayurved Rocks. Jai Dhanvantri.
