I have been part of Moolchand’s famous Ayurveda Centre for 20 years. I am an expert in pulse diagnosis (Nadi Parikshan), and Prakriti-vikriti analysis. My skill-set entails helping my patients restore balance of their bio-energies through Nasya–Nasal therapy, Sneha Vasti–Oil enema therapy, Kashaya Vasti–Herbal enema therapy, Shirovasti, Uttara Vasti, Udvartana, Karna Poorana, Kavala-Gandusha, Sarvanga Dhara, Netra Vasti, and other therapies. I am also amongst the few practitioners who can perform an Uttar Basti for gynecological problems and infertility (in men and women).
Besides treating diseases, I practice preventive and curative ayurveda along with the multidimensional values of yoga. In addition I teach ayurveda to doctors and technicians as part of our Medical Education program.

What I'd like to tell my patients
There is a common misconception that you need help only when you are afflicted with a problem. But I believe “prevention is better than cure” and ayurveda plays a crucial role in preventing ailments. So, even if you are hale and hearty, ayurveda can enable you to maintain that healthy lifestyle. This concept of holistic health and treatment through yoga and ayurveda at Moolchand has helped hundreds of thousands of patients.
Today, many ayurveda clinics and spas have mushroomed that sell ‘Ayurveda Panchkarma’ packages which in reality offer very little besides massages. Panchkarma therapy is actually a lengthy bio-purification therapy that sometimes can last over 150 days.
I believe that a healthy practice is based on honesty and trust between the patient and the doctor. When meeting a patient, I never hold back information from them. I look at factors like constitution, physical and clinical features and symptoms displayed by my patients after which I personalize the Panchkarma therapy for them. I never prescribe medication or therapy needlessly. So when you come and see me, you can be assured of an authentic treatment.
My team prides itself in providing authentic and holistic care. We abide by the rules of ayurveda and provide physical and psychological support throughout the patient’s time here.
“A very nurturing experience, despite being fairly new to Ayurveda!”
I am 59-years old woman with a history of arthritis and diabetes. Three years ago, the unbearable pain in my knees made me utterly unfit to walk. I was placed on anti-inflammatory medications, but the knee pain and stiffness continued. My physician added a second medicine to no avail. He tried switching to more powerful medications; some of the drugs helped for a time, but the pain inevitably started up again.
Fed up with all this, I decided to see an Ayurvedic doctor. At Moolchand, my treatment by Dr. Shashi Bala was nothing short of a miracle. I don't think I could have received the same treatment and care that I received at Moolchand anywhere else. Dr. Bala is so down to earth and most of all, she cares about you as a patient. She elaborately explained to me that arthritis is a vata-type joint ailment; the increased vata, due to its rooksha (dry) property had dried up the synovial fluid in my knees. I felt safe, supported and cared for which I think is very important. Her medicines and support did a miracle – my knee pain has subsided and I can walk for miles now. For sure, I would recommend Dr. Bala to anyone, anywhere, anytime and any place.

““As my progress is continuing, I know I am in excellent hands!””
I have been consulting Dr. Shashi Bala for the past three months for white spots on my skin. As my progress is continuing, I know I am in excellent hands. My father has also been a patient for Dr. Bala for more than 8 years. He had hypertension and headaches which improved remarkably after the Ayurvedic treatment at Moolchand. Dr. Bala definitely deserves the highest humanistic phrase and honour any individual can possibly receive. I highly recommend Ayurvedic treatment at Moolchand and Dr. Bala to anyone who may be experiencing any medical condition.

“Finally sleeping soundly and pain-free!”
When I first met Dr. Shashi Bala,I had many health concerns including hypertension, diabetes, gastric trouble and night time heartburn. During my sleep, I was usually awakened by heartburn. For many years, I had slept with my head and chest uncomfortably propped up on a pile of pillows. It was the most difficult part of living with this condition.
I followed the prescribed vegetarian diet and took Ayurvedic medicines suggested by Dr. Bala. This made a huge difference in my condition. In two months, I started enjoying the benefits of Ayurvedic medicines. My family also noticed the changes in my health. I felt rejuvenated and found my medical troubles disappearing.
Certainly, coming to Moolchand was one of the best decisions I have made for myself. I give two thumbs up to Moolchand and Dr. Shashi Bala!
