2Can anyone take Panchakarma treatments?
A physician will be better able to comment on the suitability of Ayurveda as a mode of treatment for you after an in-depth consultation. This is crucial as all major treatments and procedures in Ayurveda are tailor-made to suit an individual’s nature and address the disease he/she has.
3How can I consult an Ayurveda physician at RISA?
You can book a consultation at a date and time of your convenience, and depending on the availability of the respective doctors, by calling any of the following numbers + 91-80-23606545, + 91- 9900581203, + 91 -80-22183456.

5Are in-patient treatments in Ayurveda necessary?
The severity and chronicity of a patient’s health conditions determine his/her mode of treatment. For instance, in some cases, Panchakarma treatments need to be implemented under the guidance of experienced doctors and physicians. Treatments like vamana virechana, snehapana, yoga basti, etc, may also require constant observation. Further, avoiding travel and stress, and focussing instead on recuperation, ensures that the patient receives the complete benefits of the treatments.
6What does the integrated treatment at RISA include?
At RISA, we offer Ayurveda treatments and Allopathy medications under the same roof. Investigations and consultations from Allopathy experts are used as and when required. If necessary, Allopathic treatment is administered simultaneously with Ayurveda treatment, ensuring that the patient benefits from the best of both worlds.
7Can I take Ayurveda treatments and Allopathic medications simultaneously?
Depending on your health and the disease being treated, Ayurveda treatments and Allopathic medications can be administered simultaneously. Over time, the dosage of the Allopathic medication will be gradually reduced in consultation with the relevant specialists.
