What does Ayurveda mean for you?
Ayurveda is a LIFE SCIENCE Ayurveda is the ancient Indian system of natural and holistic medicine. When it translated from Sanskrit, Ayurveda is known as the science of life (the Sanskrit base Ayur known as longevity or life and Veda known as science). While allopathic medicine habits focus on the management of disease, Ayurveda gives us the knowledge of how to fend disease and how to removes its root cause if it does happen.
Please let us know about your educational background and professional qualifications?
I’m graduated as MD (Masters in Ayurveda) in Ayurveda from Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Ayurveda in 2010 and B.A.M.S. - Rajiv Gandhi University, Bangalore. I have practiced Kshar Sutra Therapy in Sushrut Pile care center, Aurangabad.
Please let us know where you got interested in Ayurveda?
I am from old Pune, Where my Parents and Grandparents for all ailment refer to natural cure, We have a family belief that for all ailment solution lies in nature, It Interests me since childhood to get know-how body function and how it recovers.
Being a nature lover, Ayurveda is an obvious choice for me to build my carrier, Fortunately, I Become an Ayurveda Practitioner and serve my people to the best of my ability.
How would you represent Life According to Ayurveda Principles?
The intelligence of Ayurveda was passed from the descent of saints in India until it was modulated into text more than five thousand years ago. The oldest known texts on Ayurveda are the Sushruta Samhita, Charaka Samhita, and the Ashtanga Hrudaya. These texts detail the carry that the five elements found in the cosmic system - water, air, fire, space, earth – have on our particular system, and decode on the importance of deferment these elements steady for a healthy and happy life. According to Ayurveda, each person will be impressed by somewhat elements more than others. This is because of their natural constitution, or Prakriti. Ayurveda separates the different unions into three different doshas:
Vata dosha, in which space and air elements rule
Pitta dosha, in which fire element rule
Kapha dosha, in which the water and earth elements rule
The dosha treats not just the shape of one’s body but also bodily inclination (like digestion and food preferences), and the complexion of one’s mind and emotions. Most people’s Prakriti is made up of a conjunction of two doshas.
Did you get any difficulties to achieve your goal?
I start my practice from my maty with a small setup, Which is now enhanced as a multi-center Franchise option “Aim High, But Start Low, Celebrate, and Keep Going”.
It always takes time to understand the challenges and overcome them. I also have the hardship of my life being the first doctor in the family. Nobody there to guide me, how to set things straight. So in my journey, I need to make a lot of sacrifices to achieve what I want.
But the blessing of my god and support of my family, teacher, and friends. I had somehow managed to overcome the challenges that came in my paths. Still learning the best practices in Ayurveda.
What is the greatest success story of yours?
Being the first doctor in the family nobody there to guide me. Somehow I set up my brand Dr. Kamthe Piles Clinic which had served more than 20,000 patients, setup 7 centers across India, Build from scratch, and now build a training center where we teach fellow doctors how to do Ayurvedic procedure for piles, fissure, and fistula.
Along with this, we had achieved some rare achievements like the India Book of Record for Maximum number of Surgery in 1 day. International record for the largest gathering of piles patients, Sushrut Award for 2019. Publication of Ksharkarma and Ksharsutra.
Any memorable moment do you want to share with us?
My first event when I graduated as MD in Ayurveda from Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Ayurveda in 2010. Also when I saw tear-drops in my mother's eye when we organized the Sushrut Award in 2019 in front of the big giant of Ayurveda.
Did you face any problem while treating a patient?
As an Ayurveda Proctologist, the choice of treatment for me is Ksharkarma and Ksharsutra for piles, fissure, and fistula. The problem which I faced while practicing was in the urge of practicing authentic Ayurveda, the Ksharkarma and Ksharsutra practice could not be done without local/spinal anesthesia. Also after the procedure sometimes there is a need to give antibiotics or painkillers for the patient's wellbeing. So according to my point of view, every pathy is great in its field, so we should use whichever is needed and less invasive for patients well being.
Your point of view on the clinical trials in Ayurveda?
As we know Ayurveda is ‘Shahwat’. According to me whatever the treatments mentioned in the Samhitas by our Acharyas are all evidence-based, but obviously, they would have done many trials and then had concluded the treatments. The biggest lacuna is that such trial documentation or history is not available to us in the present era. So it becomes our necessity to conduct clinical trials but these cannot be called research but can be called re-study.
Please tell us about your daily routine to always stay healthy?
I start my day by 5.30 am and to stay healthy, I do cycling/walking for 40 mins in the morning at the last I end my day by 10.30 pm.
Nowadays everyone so busy with their problems because of that some people get depressed, can you give them some tips on how to avoid it?
Hard work and satisfaction are two things. Do your best and be satisfied with what you achieve after that, don’t compare yourself with others, this is the most important thing to learn. Everyone is destined to be successful, but you need to do hard work. Get close to nature. It has all resolution to our problems.
People ask why such a lengthy process in Ayurveda?
This is the biggest misconception about Ayurveda. There is no lengthy process in Ayurveda. Most of the people come to Ayurveda after trying various paths which already make their disease chronic. For chronic cases more than 2-3 years, it obviously takes time to cure completely. As Ayurveda not only treats the symptoms but treats the patient completely it is the science that heals the patient.
Are any hobbies or activities different from the professional life that you want to share with us?
Cycling/walking for 40 mins in the morning is what I enjoy most along with good quality time with my parents and family.
If you get a chance to change something for Ayurveda. So, what would be that?
I would like to practice more and more authentic Ayurveda.
Do you think that Nirogstreet is one of the ways to get close to an Ayurveda?
Yes, Indeed NirogStreet has given a platform where we are getting inspiration to do better in our professional carrier.
How do you see Ayurveda's forthcoming time?
I see Ayurveda as our national pathy(first choice of treatment in the whole nation) in the coming years.
As a senior, is there something inspirational you want to share with young students of Ayurveda?
Never treat your own pathy low. According to me, Ayurveda is the only Science of Life. Believe in it, work hard with a positive attitude, and nothing can stop you from success.
Do you want to share some special words for our readers?
There is so much in Ayurveda of which if we can use 0.01% to advantage our patients, everyone will know us as an icon in industry. “Learn and Apply” help and learning others to learn what you learn is how I feel we all should put forth.
