My experience at the Rudra Ayurveda Center was quite an awakening one. Dr. Rudra and Roy showed a lot of compassion and care for not only the practice but for their patients as well. The thought of using natural medicine, meditation or relying on my body's own amazing power to heal itself was never new to me. However taking part in panchakarma and discussing qualities of myself with Dr. Rudra and Roy helped me to realize that there are ways to help my body unleash the fullness of its own amazing healing properties in less stressful ways. Our society today is not conducive for healthy living practices often times we run around from one thing to the next, tensing or constricting our body's own ability to rejuvenate and heal itself properly. A week with Dr. Rudra taught me how to slow down and be mindful of my habits of mind and body. How to eat what my body needs, and be mindful of moderation and balance in my life. This practice has extended into other areas of my life and I am so happy to have experienced this awakening both physically and mentally. Now I am more conscious of the fact that what my body and mind needs, aligns also to what my soul and heart needs. Balance is everything!
I decided to visit Rudra Ayurveda after many months of worrying health issues. I was experiencing a lot of inflammation, aggravated asthma and eczema, restlessness, weight gain, problems sleeping... and the list goes on. I was very tired of being treated with steroids and antibiotics. Dr. Rudra is extremely knowledgeable. She does a thorough assessment and explains everything you need to know about your constitution and the treatment process that will help resolve your issue(s). She is also available for questions and gives you time to think it through before making a decision. In my case, she advised the panchakarma treatment, which I did. The entire process has resulted in a lifestyle change for me that has been extremely beneficial to my health. I was required to put structure where there was none before, particularly with regard to my sleeping and eating schedule. My diet was completely changed, and I was given breathing and yoga exercises to incorporate into daily life. I really feel like a new person, and I'm happy to go in every once in a while for a "tune-up". Roy is also wonderful. He is extremely attentive and patient. He helped with all scheduling issues, and taught me proper breathing and yoga technique, and held my hand throughout the panchakarma process. It was very reassuring to have a guide through this process, which I'd never experienced before. I would recommend anyone to go see them.
If you are looking for authentic Ayurveda, this is the place. I am a male in my mid 50s and was feeling very sluggish. I have found most cleanses disappointing. But Aurveda is a cleanse of the whole body, from your hair and skin to your internal organs. Fingers to toes. I thought I would have to choose from among many Ayurvedic doctors since I live in Manhattan, but when I googled “aurveda nyc” there were very few satisfying results. And most businesses seemed to be just day-spas that offered certain Ayurvedic-type massages or facials. I chose Rudra Ayurveda because it seemed to be the only establishment that was 100% Ayurvedic, from diagnosis to treatment. And that was run by a Doctor of Ayurveda, trained in India. And I was not disappointed. This is the real deal. The whole enchilada. Just pure Ayurveda. After my initial consultation I took the 7 day Panchakarma and emerged a new person. Not only do you get wonderful oil massages and steam baths, oil treatments in your nose and ears, but also a diagnosis of your body type, dietary advice for your specific type, instruction in herbal medicine, meditation, and best of all, to me, personal instruction in the pranayama breathing exercises which make you feel fantastic. Two hours after Day One my sinus headaches went away and never came back. On Day Three a skin tag fell off! Over the seven days I lost several pounds. I sleep better, my digestion is better, and I continue to lose weight. I have completely said good-bye to heart burn. But more importantly, I feel enabled, because I was given the tools to continue to improve my health all on my own. If you are ready for a re-boot, try Ayurveda. And try it here. Rudra Ayurveda is really first in its class.
I found Dr. Rudra's contact information online and wasn't sure what to expect at my first consultation. I was pleasantly surprised. You see, I was puzzled by a strange thing. Every night I would wake up soaked in sweat, so wet that I had to change my clothing and sleep the rest of the night on the other side of the bed where the sheets were dry. I was having perimenopausal symptoms including sleep disturbances and minor digestive problems. Dr. Rudra is incredibly thorough. She explains to you the basic principles of Ayurveda. She offers lifestyle counseling, she asks you different questions and determines your dosha type and where there is an imbalance and offers an effective treatment. I changed my diet and lifestyle and took herbal supplements to support and strengthen the body. The result has been 100 percent positive. Within 4 weeks, the night sweats tapered off. To this day, I've not had a repeat episode. My sleep is normal again. My digestion is back to normal after 3 months and the added bonus is my skin too has improved. I look radiant. My complexion is flawless. I am happier, still healthy and continue to eat the right foods and take herbal supplements every day. So, if you have started to rejuvenate your body through diet, herbs, and lifestyle now or throughout your whole life, it will be easier and more effective after menopause. However, if you are new to natural medicine or have not followed healthy practices for other reasons, rest assured that you can start now and still have good results. Dr. Rudra knows what she is talking about. She and Roy are friendly and professional. I highly recommend Rudra Ayurveda if you are looking for a alternative healing treatment for your health issues.
Dr. Rudra is extremely smart and very caring. Her assistant Roy is attentive and very present, knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend a visit to Rudra Ayurveda if you are experiencing any chronic medical issues or if you are simply looking to explore how to incorporate Ayurveda into your life. One thing to keep in mind is that this approach requires an investment of time and discipline from you (the patient).
Hello all, I wanted to share my amazing experience at Rudra Ayurveda a few months after my first appointment. After following a particular diet and balancing my inner-self, Under Dr Rudra's suggestion, I decided to take part in the Panchakarma. It was the first time in my life I have ever done a deep cleansing like that which required a sort of commitment, and I couldn't have chosen a better place to do it. The devotion and care that Dr Rudra and Roy have for their practice is very special and hard to find. Although I was a bit concerned at the beginning as I did not know what to expect from this, I can say that I feel a brand new person. Of course great part of a cleansing is how receptive the individual is and how much we care about our health. So, please go if your intention is to be well and happy. To feel for the first time a deep connection within my body, my mind and my soul was very special. Dr Rudra follows you through each step and Roy has incredible healing hands. His touch and great soul are very inspiring, empowering and nourishing. The massages are perfectly relaxing and the oils are fantastic. I felt positive and so focused like never before after the various treatment procedures used. At Rudra Ayurveda, I really feel completely taken care of with genuine care, and their goal is to make you feel good but most of all to give you the tools so you can continue on that journey on your own. Part of the treatment includes also learning some breathing and meditation techniques with were really mind-blowing because of their positive effect in the mind. I used to have issues with my mind going all over the place, and having a sense of feeling overwhelmed, now I am so happy because I am learning how to manage that and hold energy throughout the day. I feel clean inside and out. It is truly magical. Rudra Ayurveda is a gem in New York. And I am very grateful to be under Dr Rudra and Roy's care. Thank you ! I highly recommend visiting the Center!
Dr. Rudra has done a great job for me! When I first came to see her, I was more than a little skeptical that Ayurveda will be the effective solution for me, but I also realized I need to try different routs than "western" medicine if I wanted to genuinely be better, not just medicated. Another little setback was that I was quite limited in cash. But it all worked out spectacularly in the end. On a first visit the cleansing diet routine sure sounded challenging, and I had doubts that I could even last few days :) however I was determined to give it my best, and I was glad to discover it got a lot easier as days went by. At a follow up appointment a week later Dr. Rudra and I discovered that I lost 8 pounds. Now, with a thyroid condition that I have (autoimmune thyroiditis) it is very common not being able to lose ANY weight whatsoever, no matter how much you exercise or how little you ear. So losing that much was good news. Even better news, though, was that I FELT way lighter, joyful, more energetic - not like a depressed, lethargic blob I was becoming due to the illness. Dr. Rudra acknowledged the progress we made with the cleansing, and then prescribed some additional herbal formulas and a diet/lifestyle routine to be followed. I did take the medicine as prescribed. Being human, lifestyle and diet changes did not get adopted so easily :) However, even with my less than 100% follow-through approach a few months later I am STILL (!) losing weight and feeling better. That is a real 'miracle' for me. Fingers crossed, I may be able to completely recover from the rest of my intense hypothyroid symptoms and the rest without the 'help' of synthetic formulas. In a nut shell: Dr. Rudra possesses great command of the precious ancient knowledge that is Ayurveda. You will be required to do some work but the results absolutely worth it!
Upon doing much research on alternative medicine I had mostly heard amazing things about Ayurveda. All there was to do was find the RIGHT place to go. That RIGHT place and the RIGHT people was Roy and Dr. Rudra at Rudra Ayurveda New York. I was feeling as if my overall health was in a bit of a funk which was why I had decided to come here. After a Panchakarma detox and following the Ayurvedic practices exactly as I was taught by Roy and Dr. Rudra, I feel as if I am a completely different person. The way I feel (health wise) and I also just think much clearer from following the Yog, meditation, and breathing exercises. Thank You Roy & Dr. Rudra xoxo
Looking for maintenance or restoration of wellness and health Rudra Ayurveda provides a comprehensive way to health. For years I researched and engaged integrative medicine remedies and specialists that just did not work. I suffered from feelings of imbalance: insomnia, gastrointestinal upset and decreased endurance. Dr Rudra commands attention to a holistic program (Panchakarma). In a clear and concise way she prepared and reviewed the plan. I appreciate her approach to mind, body (nutrition) and spirit restoration. Roy is the other half of the “Team Ayurveda”. He is a breath of fresh air. He guided me through the experience. Just when you think you remember the instructions provided. . . then the mind that still has too much chatter, steers you in another direction. Well. . . Roy is just a phone call away. Support is important as you journey toward wellness. Rudra Ayurveda understands. Kudos to Dr Rudra and Roy for a wonderful experience!
