Ayurvedic medicine is a system of health care that has developed along with the civilization on the Indian subcontinent and is used by millions of people in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and throughout the world. Ayurvedic science defines true health as a harmonious state, knowledge of life and as the combination of the body, mind, sense organs and soul. In the Ayurvedic consult, Dr. Rakhra assesses and identifies the primary dosha or doshas individual to each person.
Three Main Doshas
• Ashwagandha (adaptogenic, nervine tonic, alleviates anxiety, nervousness and depression)
• Guggul (compounds, rheumatism, arthritis, tumors, thyroid and weight loss)
• Boswellia (anti-inflammatory, rheumatism, arthritis and colitis)
• Triflax Forte (excellent for detoxification, helps clear the skin and bowel and it a very gentle laxative, balanced for all three doshas)
A variety of supplements and compounds are available.
Candida Testing & Treatment: Candidiasis and Mycotoxins
Candida, a genus of yeast like fungi, are normally found in the alimentary tract and vagina. C. albicans is usually the fungus responsible for candidiasis. A valuable diagnostic tool, the bio cell blood analysis (microscopic test for fungi) is included in the initial naturopathic consult. Single fungi can be seen under a microscope as in the bio cell blood analysis test and colonies are seen with the naked eye as mold. At any one time we may have thousands of different species of fungi, single celled microscopic yeasts coexisting with our body. They can enter the body through the nose or mouth and settle in the lungs and gastrointestinal tract, or behave as normal inhabitants on the skin, in the vagina and G.I tract. Generally considered benign when populations are checked, these yeast-like forms can swell to invasive budding mycelia. Under some circumstances, Candida and other fungi can produce a large number of biologically active substances called mycotoxins. These toxins can get into the bloodstream and can produce an array of central nervous system symptoms such as:
- Mental fogginess
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Hypoglycemic symptoms
Mycotoxins are associated with a Candida Albicans overgrowth that results in chronic illness, frequently described as “feeling sick all over.” Once identified, Candidiasis is treated by a combination of supportive strategies: diet, herbal detoxification and IV therapies.

Intravenous Therapies at Ayurved & Naturopathic
One of the practices at Ayurved & Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Calgary is intravenous therapy. This therapy involves injecting liquid substances like vitamins, minerals, amino acids or other medications directly into a vein to be quickly absorbed by the body. Certain disorders like arthritis, muscle pain and inflammation, migraines, viral infections, heart problems and hardening of the arteries can be alleviated with intravenous drips.
Vitamins and Minerals
Nutritional supplements are a valuable addition for people with digestive system disorders and diets that lack the required nutrients. Good quality multivitamins, minerals, amino acids and other supplements are used to bolster depleted immune systems. Injections and intravenous solutions are available in:
- B Complex
- Vitamin C
- Meyers Cocktail
The concentrations are at a therapeutic level because they are absorbed directly into the blood, bypassing the digestive organs. These therapies can benefit certain groups and people with chronic conditions including women and vegans and those suffering from chronic fatigue, cancer, depression, alcohol and drug abuse, PTSD and chronic and stress-related illnesses.
EDTA is a synthetic amino acid, a chelator that binds to heavy metals and to plaque adhering to the arteriole walls and is then excreted through the urinary system. The protocol for the infusion of EDTA is set by the American College of Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), a professional association for medical doctors. Chelation is an important therapeutic intervention for these medical conditions:
- Circulatory disorders
- Muscle spasms
- Abnormal calcium deposits
- Toxicity from heavy metals
- Toxicity from chemotherapy
- Toxicity from drug addiction and alcoholism
EDTA and other chelating agents such as: DMPS. DMSA, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) administered intravenously to eliminate heavy metals including:
Ozone and hydrogen peroxide are administered as an adjunct to and separate from other IV therapies. Dr. Otto Warburg M.D. observed that cancer cells have a lower respiration rate than normal healthy cells when exposed to ozone. His research revealed that cancer cells prefer a low-oxygen environment (anaerobic) and by saturating the tissues with higher oxygen levels (aerobic), abnormal cell growth would be retarded or killed. Oxygen is necessary for healthy tissues and counteracts:
- Bacterial infections
Produced by the body naturally, hydrogen peroxide is used systemically throughout the body to help regulate all living cell membranes. It is necessary in hormonal production and the regulation of blood sugar, maintaining nervous system integrity, operation of brain function and is an integral part of the defense system that kills:
Intramuscular Injections: Phototherapy, Vitamins and Homeopathic
Soft-tissue damage is treated with injections that produce a controlled and mild irritation in the designated site. The body reacts by increasing the blood supply and sending more nutrients to the area, resulting in tissue repair. It is a nonsurgical treatment used to alleviate chronic pain by reconstructing a person's ligaments and tendons. Prolotherapy works to promote the growth and formation of new ligament and tissues. Vitamins such as IM B12 and B Complex are available to build nutritional and energy levels. Homeopathic remedies are useful in treating pain and mobility issues in arthritis, rheumatism and many other chronic muscular skeletal conditions due to disease or injury.
