"The Clinic" was established in 1995, to help individuals with chronic and unusual health problems, to get well, in a green and peaceful environment, in a atmosphere of love and care.
We treat a wide range of conditions including Neurological & Spinal problems, allergies, gastrointestinal problems, arthritis and autoimmune disorders.
At this clinic, we focus on diagnosing the cause and treating these ailments using through integrated methods of diagnosis and treatment as appropriate.
Most patients who seek admission at the clinic are suffering from long standing, complicated and often interrelated problems for which they have been unable to find answers elsewhere in the world.
We offer an individualized and intensive approach to your problems, in an integrated and holistic manner in a clean and harmonious environment which is ideal for healing. The approach gives each patient, adequate time with the doctor which ranges from 30 minutes to 45 minutes on working days, which gives both the doctor and you the chance to explore, understand and solve the your problems. This kind of time from a doctor is rarely available in any hospital and is only possible because we see a small number of patients every day in the clinic. Patients are seen only by appointment (except for occasional emergencies) so high quality care is possible, as the doctor is not under the pressure of time.
"The Clinic" is a place for anybody who wishes to improve their health, and to grow in the direction they wish to go.
We help people who are well, to explore and assess their lives and health. I help people to anticipate what problems may occur in the future and help them to take action to prevent these problems. Many people do have minor health problems and have been unable to find answers for them. A few days stay at the clinic, can often help them find answers. Many of our guests at "The Clinic" return every year, to fine tune their health, to rest and recuperate, and to grow into the people they wish to be.
Admission and diagnosis Admission to the clinic begins with filling in an admission and arrival form, which is mailed to you once you confirm your admission. This helps us to plan your stay here, so we can optimize your treatment plan, and arrange your food and other requirements. Please fill and mail us this questionnaire detailing your personal information and problems.
After you arrive, have settled down and rested, you meet Dr. Hiranandani for a diagnostic evaluation to find out the causes of your problems. After this evaluation a detailed treatment plan is then drawn up to enable you to recover your health as soon as possible. This plan requires work from you, Dr. Hiranandani and the clinic staff. This plan, in addition to the treatment being carried out by Dr. Hiranandani & his staff, may include dietary changes, life style changes, re-evaluation of goals, thought processes and reassessment of your aims in your life as well as breathing, and exercise regimens to allow you to recover and lead a better, healthier life. This plan is discussed with you, and after your consent we commence treatment.
There is a threshold in each individual at which illness manifests. Many factors can drive you below this threshold. These factors include lack of sleep, stress, incorrect or unbalanced diet, injury, lack of exercise, excesses in work, diet, lifestyle, alcohol. Other factors include air pollution, polluted water, food contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives and artificial colorings. Here we aim to bring you above the threshold by the modification of whichever of these factors are applicable to you. With your cooperation the healing and recovery process is faster and more complete, while without your cooperation, the process is usually doomed to failure.
Medical records. Patients are requested to bring all documentation, X-rays, blood tests scans & other medical papers which relate to the problems for which they are coming to " The Clinic" for treatment.
Treatment : The first phase of treatment is to address the causes of your problems. In this phase most of the work is done by the doctor and his staff. The next phase is to promote recovery of those parts of your body which may have been damaged by the illness. In this phase more responsibility shifts to the patient. The third phase is consolidation of the recovery process. Here the patient puts in most of the effort under the supervision of the doctor and his staff. The final phase consists of follow up assessments and treatments over the next few years till you are satisfied with your state of health. As these phases of treatment overlap we advise you to allocate yourself enough time at "The Clinic", and put in the effort to achieve the results you desire. Mobilization and exercise in the clinic premises is supervised by doctor & his staff to allow you correct your posture, walking and usage of your body.
Hard work and divine grace"
The Clinic" offers an individualized and intensive approach to problems in a holistic fashion in a clean, green, harmonious environment which is ideal for healing. Our aim is to make you functional during your stay at the clinic. With chronic health problems, the body suffers a lot of damage and this can take time to recover. If you are responding to treatment it is often worthwhile for you to extend your stay here till you are functional. Here we have the infrastructure to aid you in the recovery process which is often not available in your home environment. Much hard work will be required in the subsequent years to consolidate the improvement and return you to good health. Continued improvement requires that you adhere to the treatment plan laid out by Dr. Hiranandani at "The Clinic" and return for follow up treatment if advised by Dr. Hiranandani. Many patients come to "The Clinic" expecting miracles. Miracles are 99% hard work and 1% Divine grace. If both doctor & patient put in all the necessary effort to become well, the divine grace and the miracle often follow. If the patient is not inclined to co-operate with the treatment regimen then we are unlikely to obtain the desired results and he or she is advised to seek treatment elsewhere.
