After spending time immersed in traditional Indian sciences like yoga, astrology, spirituality, and natural healing methods, Dr. Jinde determined that there was no single path to deliver prevention and cure for all diseases. He knew that there had to be a system to deliver the right treatment or medicine at the right stage of disease and for the right purpose, and it was then that he began to see Ayurveda as that solution.
He received his degree in Ayurveda studies from the University of Pune, with post-graduate work from one of the oldest Ayurvedic college in India: Utkal University.
Dr. Jinde places prime importance on preventing diseases and maintaining optimal health through proper diet and lifestyle regime, along with periodic detoxification. Understanding and dealing with emotions, too, plays a part in his treatment of patients.
The main difference between Western pharmaceutical drugs and Ayurvedic herbal supplements is how the health problem is addressed. Western pharmaceutical drugs generally address the symptoms of the problem, not what is causing it.
An example is having trouble sleeping. Many pharmaceutical prescription drugs for sleeping problems basically try to “knock out” the person taking them. These products create a “hangover” effect on a person’s mental and physical functioning the following day. Also people taking sleeping pills sometimes have a temporary worsening of the sleeping problem when they stop taking the pills. These pharmaceutical products are also usually not recommended to be taken on a long-term basis. Advertisements describing the benefits of these drugs are always followed by a long list of ailments, side effects, and complications that the drugs may cause, many of which are much worse than the insomnia itself.
Ayurvedic herbs are different from pharmaceutical products because they attempt to address the cause of the problem, rather than just the symptoms. Also, true Ayurvedic formulations are completely natural, as they are only formulated from the roots, leaves, and seeds of plants.
