Effective alternative therapies
that offer natural healing!
At rVita, we believe in healing all modern day lifestyle disorders and restoring your
health and balance through an integrative approach. This essentially consists of
alternative medicines, modern diagnostic techniques, a well balanced nutritional Diet
and therapeutic Yoga. This innovative approach is gaining popularity in all clinical
Alternative research systems across the world.
Medicines While most forms of medicine work on symptoms, our therapies work on solutions to
the root cause. Hence, we identify the root of the disease first using modern
diagnostic techniques as well as alternative methods. As a part of the process, we
analyse the patient’s body type using a Prakriti form - a questionnaire which helps
analyze the current state of the patient’s body to bring a balance in the body Doshas,
namely Vatha, Pitha and Kapha.
Launching rVita Programs are based on the following:
• Bio Energy & Body Constitution of the patient based on Ayurveda & Yoga
• Modern Diagnostics – Blood Sugar, HBA1C etc.
Therapeutic • Diet & Nutrition based on socio-economic condition, region, race etc.
Yoga We understand each patient is unique and needs to be treated accordingly. That’s why our
Techniques doctors recommend an alternative prescription based on the above factors, which
constitutes natural medicines including Ayurveda, therapeutic Yoga asanas (yoga
exercises) and a well balanced Nutritional Diet plan recommended by a nutrition expert for
a period of one month.
This treatment not only cures the disease, but also restores balance in the patient’s body.
This balance helps him lead a healthier life. We document the end results with modern
diagnostic parameters for better understanding.
