The words that come to my mind when I remember my experience in Ayuskama Ayurveda Institute are honesty, generosity and wisdom. My time with the Ayuskama´s team (more than team, my indian family) was very very nice because it was full of knowledge about this wonderful and sacred medicine in a proper enviroment for learning. I am very grateful with Dr Arun Sharma for his great heart, and for all the time that we enjoyed together. He gave to me the essence of the Ayurveda, how he loves this medicine and how he transmits, it was a gift for me!! I was very lucky to recive this knowledege from him.
I am very grateful too with Dr Ruchika,Mamta and Pankaj for all their help and the smile that always they have in their faces. THANKS. I miss you.

I came to Dr. Arun's clinic to study the one month Introduction to Ayurveda course and also to seek treatments/get an Ayurvedic perspective on an auto-immune condition I've been dealing with. I loved it so much I stayed an extra month in McLeodGanj so I could continue to learn and be under the docs supervision. I can't thank Dr. Arun and his team enough!

The curriculum is comprehensive, thorough and debunks a lot of current misconceptions found in Ayurvedic books today. Dr. Arun is fully versed in Sanskrit and his ability to explain complicated subjects in a simple, digestible manner, makes learning very easy. His personal, genuine and expert attention to each student and patient is admirable. He gave me an understanding of my health that no other doctor in the US had been able to do. His knowledge of not just Ayurvedic Medicine but also Western Medicine, is a huge advantage and gives great perspective. He tailors every treatment according to the patients specific needs, constitution and other factors he takes into consideration.

There are many clinics out there that will just sell you a Panchakarma treatment pack whether the patient needs it or not. Dr. Arun's practice is as honest as it gets. He is an embodiment of the Ayurvedic way of living in this modern world. I am eternally grateful for everything I've learned and the treatment I received. I am planning for a return next year to continue with his courses. If you are thinking of studying Ayurveda and/or have health issues you want treatment for, look no further, this is the doctor and the place to do it.

Hello friends,

I wanted to write this article to let people know who are suffering from “psoriasis”. Becouse I have suffered from it and i have seen that the present Allopathic treatment is very harmful, long term,expensive and destructive as like steroid based treatments which kill everything what we need or what we do not need in the entire body and immunity.

I had psoriasis since 12 years with me. It has been increased or mostly relieved from time to time. There were only small patches on scalp and around ankles…etc
Recently in June 2013, psoriasis has attacked on my face violently for first time. It was much aggressive than before very itchy and unpleasent. And it happened after a big stress in my life. Fortunately I was studying Ayurveda with Dr. Arun Sharma at Ayuskama Ayurveda Institute, Dharamshala, Mcleodganj in Northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.
I went for a consultation with Dr. Arun Sharma and I understood that all the steroid based treatments that i was doing before are just suppresing my symptoms and more they will suppress more it will accumulate in the body and more strongly it will come back, and he explained me that this problem can be very effectivly treated in Ayurveda with detox therapy, which is called “panchakarma”. In panchakarma treatment there is no suppression but it is taking the toxins out of the body to which my immunity was reacting. Once the toxins are out our immunity dosent react and no symptoms are produced on the skin, So i begun immediately “panchkarma” (detox) treatment with my teacher Dr. Arun Sharma in “Ayuskama Ayurveda Institude” at Dharamshala.

There are five different procedures in Panchakarma but to me only vomiting was recommened.
My doctor choose to do therapeutic vomiting for me and Even only with one of the Panchakarma procedure, I felt as different person right after the treatment. Which was for total of 9 days plus 7 days of diet restrictions as an after care, Almost all the patches and wounds dissapeared. It made my mind very calm as well through the body. After that I started taking care of my self with the diet, lifestyle and some medicines as prescribed by the doctor and i am feeling much better than before. I find my self fortunate to find this amazing treatment for my disease, If I would not have done this, I would have fallen in the trap of steroid creams and other harmful chemical medicines, which would have ruined my health.
On contrary Ayurvedic treatment not only cured the disease, but also made my overall health and energy levels much better.

From my experience and from other patients experience those who were taking treatment for psoriasis during the same time in this clinic ,I would humbly recommend panchkarma for all the patients those who are suffering from psoriasis, as I have understood that Suppression is not the treatment for this, Panchakarma detox is a much better approach. And we can save our health from all these harmfull steroidal, chemical treatments, which harm us more than the disease itself.

I wish all beings in peace,

Best regards,

Orçun Yeyman

I spent over one month visiting Dr Arun regularly and doing Panchakarma treatment. During all that time he always had time for me and showed genuine interest in my concerns and well being. His team of workers and students were also an incredible support during my treatment. After completing Panchakarma and feeling great, I can not recommend Dr Arun and his team enough! Fantastic!

First I sent email to their contact detail to ask about the price which very reasonable.
So I did panchakarma detox here for 7 days it was amazing. You will surrounded by Good people and atmosphere which will make your detox experience become special.
Dr. Arun consulted me about my problem and how to solve it by their treatment, food. They gave me massage by hot oil, herbs, face scrub, shirodhara, steam bath and oil to cleanse my toxin.
He is a great doctor very genuine, straight forward and honest. Wait till you meet his sister Ruchika and their massage theraphist Mamta you will love this place. Their service just so good with their caring and loving.
7 days seems so short for me wish i can stay longer....!!!
