It’s a beautiful world filled with wonderful colours, but it can mean nothing if your eyesight is compromised. Our Ayurvedic doctors are adept at diagnosing conditions of the eye and effective in managing and treating them.
Typical eyesight difficulties and diseases are a result of a hectic lifestyle and the burden of stress on the mind. The eyes and the mind are closely connected. The eyes as a primary sensory organ reflect the stress of the mind and this in turn affects eye muscles, creating eyesight problems. Sri Sri Tattva Panchakarma offers a holistic eye care program – Sri Sri Netra Jyoti, a unique blend of Ayurveda and contemporary techniques. Synergistic use of eye exercises with natural ocular therapies and internal medicines strengthen eye muscles, optimize retinal function and correct refractive errors. These synergistic therapies can heal different eyesight complications like myopia, hypermetropia, presbyopia and squint eyes. Natural therapies are also used to heal eye diseases like glaucoma, premature cataract, retinal diseases, retinitis pigmentosa, retinal detachment, optic neuritis, keratoconus and diabetic retinopathy.
Medicinal concoctions used in our natural therapies are prepared using milk from our Goshala (cow shelter) and herbs grown in our own organic gardens. They are free from contaminants and retain the essence of nature. The therapies used are Netra Tarpana, a rejuvenating therapy for sore eyes using warm ghee; Netra Dhara, a natural way of cleansing the eyes using medicated oils and Netra Lepam which relieves various kinds of eye pain. Therapies like Netra Bandhana, Thulum, Netra Putapaka and Netra Pindi are combined with eye exercises like sunning, palming, eye wash, candle light reading, Snellen chart reading, ball exercises, steaming and application of cold pack. This relaxes all the muscles of the eyes; increases blood circulation to the eyes; softens and maintains the shape of the eyeballs. All the therapies used have no side effects as they are based on Ayurveda and Naturopathy. The therapies at Sri Sri Netra Jyoti are effective for the overall health of the eyes and also mental well being.
