Dr. Mahendra Balar (M.D.)
Medical Director, Prajna Institute of Yoga & Allied Sciences (PIYAS)
The value of health is fully realized when one loses it and really runs helter skelter to regain it. This somewhat is the situation that Dr. Mahendra Balar & his team of Naturopathy Doctors see day-in and day-out. Dr. Mahendra Balar is the Medical Director of the WHolistic Care, Naturopathy Centre Prajna Institute of Yoga & Allied Sciences located in Chamarajpet, Bengaluru.
Dr. Mahendra Balar & his wife Dr. Neetu Jain who is the Managing Director at their PIYAS hospital have been running high-end Naturopathy clinics over the last 20 years plus. They also run a PIYAS Naturopathy setup in Ooty & coming up with a centre in Dubai as well. Both of them have been actively involved in the promotion & research of Yoga, Naturopathy and Stress management.
With Dr. Mahendra Balar’s background as Medical professional trained in Modern medicine and Dr. Neetu Jain’s background as Medical professional trained in Naturopathy and her family background that is a firm believer of Naturopathy in a big way for the last seven decades, so much so that they have never found the need to take any medications or for that matter even vaccinations for any of their family members, this team is the right fit to come up with this almost unique Yoga & Naturopathy centre.
When there were thoughts of setting up a Naturopathy facility in the remote, pristine, nature-surrounded & abundant open spaces plot in Ramanagaram district, this couple felt that it is important to provide a facility that could benefit someone in their day-to-day living in the normal work life environment. That was the culmination of the project of PIYAS at the current location at Chamara
Dr. Mahendra Balar says, we cover the very important part of Healthcare that has to do with the Spirit and the emotion, which is often ignored at many Healthcare centres. And the uniqueness to our centre is that we never shy away from taking in and caring for patients who need critical care. We currently have a patient who was afflicted with multiple health woes and was almost immobile for past 2 years, he was infact brought to us on a stretcher. Today after a couple of day’s treatment at PIYAS Centre, he is able to climb stairs, do his routine duties and we are working towards bringing in near-normalcy to his life.
He says that we have assumed that falling sick and living with aches, pains and health issues is a normal way to live and that nothing much can be done about that in modern times. You pop medicines and get somewhat relief for time until it recurs, so that is fine. The message from Dr. Mahendra Balar is that one Has to take charge and control of one’s health with some bare essential knowledge and lifestyle practices that will go a long way in ensuring a trouble free, extremely healthy life. His near and dear extended family members, who are today extremely well-placed in life both in India and abroad are able to enjoy a very healthy life with the wellness mantras that is propagated by the Naturopathy discipline.
According to him we unnecessarily are complicating something that is extremely simple. Our body is meant to take care of itself with minimum external interventions but we do things in ignorance and by blindly following practices that in the long run will affect our body and make it even more susceptible to dependence on medications. The team runs a very interesting Health & wellness awareness experiential workshop for people to understand themselves and what will keep them healthy, cheerful and positive.
Their belief is that treatments and approach has to be person-oriented rather than too much system-oriented. For clarity on the root cause for the health problem one has to understand the person’s lifestyle, upbringing, environment, thinking etc. and then the health issue is addressed on that basis. The individual treatment programmes are designed after the detailed holistic health evaluations are made. Dr. Mahendra Balar & his team are extremely committed to get Naturopathy its rightful place as a treatment of choice for majority of the modern day ailments.
PIYAS centre’s uniqueness is in making a person independent in all his / her health aspects. PIYAS is a centre which has blended the ancient wisdom with modern science to provide the best treatment for the people who are in need of it through its unique programs which are totally free of any side effects. The centre believes in providing long lasting health, through its side effects-free and holistic treatment approach, through various health disciplines like yoga, nature cure, meditation, ayurveda, physiotherapy, acupressure, acupuncture, diet counselling, de-addiction & de-stress programs.
The fundamental principle underlying Holistic Treatment is that the natural defense and immune system of an individual when strengthened, has the potential to heal and prevent diseases. This approach nevertheless combines the pick of the past, interlaced with the best of the present and prepares one for the future.
