Ayurvedic Medicine

An Ancient Indian Science

Dr. Nikita has a strong interest in Ayurvedic medicine, which originated more than 5000 years ago and is still very prominent today in India. It is a personalized health care system that offers a whole-person approach to wellness incorporating mind, body, and spirit. Ayurveda is a science of life (ayur= life, Veda= knowledge, or science) determined by the subtle observation of mind, body, and spirit. It offers healing modalities for optimal health while providing the realization of full human potential. 

Treatment modalities include special diets, herbal compounds, (surgery & panchakarma not offered at Sunshine Holistic Health) yoga, and meditation. The treatments are aimed at doshas (individual constitution), disease type, and the root cause (internal vs. external).  

Dr. Nikita combines the wisdom of Ayurvedic medicine with that of naturopathic medicine to best assist in your healing journey.

Homeopathic Treatment

Safe And Effective Alternative

“Homo” means “same” and “pathos” means “suffering”, so homeopathy means the “same as suffering”. With homeopathy, Dr. Nikita Patel gives an extremely dilute amount of herb or mineral, that if it were given in a huge amount to a healthy person, would create the same mental, emotional and physical symptoms as the person being treated is experiencing. The extremely diluted dose of a homeopathic remedy brings a person back into balance. How it works is not clearly understood, but in the hands of a well-trained homeopath it has miraculous results.

Bilateral Nasal Specific

Cranium Alignment

Dr. Nikita became fascinated with the Bilateral Nasal Specific Technique after witnessing a dramatic improvement in cerebral palsy symptoms post-BNS treatment. 
The Bi-lateral Nasal Specific Cranial Technique was originally developed by Dr. J. Richard Stober, D.C., N.D., a graduate of Western States Chiropractic College (University of Western States) who specialized in the technique from the 1940s until his death in 1987.
The technique first used to treat infants and children suffering from head trauma from birth, for example cerebral palsy, hearing loss, autism, ADHD, etc. Since that time Dr. Stober’s treatment has become the standard for dynamic cranial adjusting.
BNS or Nasal Cranial Release provides relief to those suffering from headache, migraine, sinusitis, cerebral palsy, hearing loss, facial asymmetry, poor vision and any conditions of the head never well since head trauma/concussion.
