Dr Nishi Bhatt, resides between London and India. She has been brought up in London and operate her own alternative therapy clinic known as Naadi Yoga along with her business partner Ashish Gilhotra, in Dehradun, India. She uses natural motor therapy programs, dietary counselling, herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, flower essences and lifestyle education to treat clients for health issues in a range of areas such as Ataxia, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Delayed and Global Development Issues, Hormonal Disorders, Sleep Disorders, Neo-Natal, Nerve Degeneration and Damage, Digestive Disorders, Fertility and Stress.

 

She typically provides clients from all round the world with an initial consultation to get a holistic understanding of their health and she follows up with test results, treatment plans and naturopathic prescriptions.

This precedes further follow-ups to monitor the effectiveness of treatment plans and prescriptions.

 

“You can’t treat patient all in the same way, ‘Oh, somebody has Cerebral Palsy, so I’ll treat them this way’. “The challenge is to understand the individual in front of you,” she says

"The Brain and Body have an amazing energy field that can heal the individual/influencer and vice versa, with the right interventions. If these interventions are carried out at the right age under correct guidance, a child can be normalised. Miracles can be performed by changing the brain and body functions in the same child who was medically declared disabled or mentally challenged"

- Dr. Nishi Bhatt

 

Dr. Nishi Bhatt is one of the leading doctors in the emerging field of holistic & neurological treatments involving Ayurveda, (but not limited to) Naturopathy and various healing modalities. She was brought up in London most of her life but currently resides between India and the U.K. alternately. With her dynamic yet disarming, down-to-earth personality, Dr. Nishi operates her own alternative therapy clinic known as Naadi Yoga, which she heads in a synergistic partnership with her husband, Dr. Ashish Gilhotra (who provides orthopaedic consultations), in Dehradun, India. She uses natural motor therapy programs, dietary counselling, herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, flower essences and lifestyle education to treat clients for health issues in a range of areas such as Ataxia, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy & Seizures (Slow-wave Sleep enhancement for Children), Emotional Recognition & Differentiation, Facial Affect, Delayed and Global Development Issues, Hormonal Disorders, Sleep Disorders, Neo-Natal, Nerve Degeneration and Damage, Digestive Disorders, Fertility and Stress-related issues.

She typically provides clients from all round the world with an initial consultation to get a holistic understanding of their health condition and she follows up with test results, treatment plans and naturopathic prescriptions. This precedes further follow-ups to monitor the effectiveness of treatment plans and prescriptions.

“You can’t treat all patients in the same manner. The challenge is to understand the individual in front of you and prescribe an individualized treatment with an aim towards a holistic healing of the individual”, says Dr. Nishi Bhatt.

Dr. Bhatt, who is a doctor of Ayurveda and specialises in alternative healing therapies for neuro-rehabilitation, also develops and researches natural motor therapy programs for children with intensive special disabilities. Her approach consists of cutting-edge bodywork and motor re-education techniques to help children re-establish connections in their body through awareness and creative learning. Our programs are a natural alternative to traditional rehabilitation methods — no medication, splints or braces, and her therapy has helped hundreds of children gain better motor control of their own bodies. Her therapies are gentle, non-invasive and fully comprehensive. In Naadi Yoga, she prescribes treatment that is a mixture of Naturopathy, Acupressure, Pranic Breathing, Murma Chikitsa, Yoga Therapy, Colour Therapy, and Mud Therapy. This treatment regenerates brain cells and raises the oxygen level within the body which brings instant relief to tensed muscles and helps the body to relax. This treatment has also been a boon for senior patients due to the ageing process of the human body and has proven to be very effective for children with neuro diseases.

Naadi Yoga is a mind and body practice that originated from ancient Indian philosophy. It focuses on slow, controlled movements aimed at stretching and relaxing your muscles. By stimulating certain pressure areas and breathing for a specified amount of time, Naadi Yoga can improve posture by relaxing and strengthening the muscles around the spine. 

 

  • 30-year-old Atul, a parent of Rushit with autism, practices Naadi Yoga every day. He said, “Of course, the physical needs of people with disabilities vary, but there is one constant: Everyone, regardless of their physical capabilities, needs to find some way of staying as fit as possible”. Individuals like Atul believe that Naadi Yoga is the only solution for people with Autism/ADHD/ASD. His child had issues with abnormal body posturing and no expressions, would avoid eye contact and displayed a lot of behavioural disturbances when taken to family or crowded functions. However, in just 2 months, Atul has seen tremendous changes in the way his son has been responding to Dr. Nishi's intervention therapies. Rushit has started responding to instructions and playing with other children in the playground without displaying overtly aggressive behaviour. His appetite has improved and is able to eat all varieties of food, much to the relief of his parents. He is able to sit in one place while being engaged in his homework or play for longer durations of time. He has also started choosing his own clothes and wearing his shoes on the right feet.

  • Sumita, a young parent of her first child Cerebral Palsy, spends a minimum of 2 hours each day practicing Naadi Yoga on her daughter, Tanya. She believes Naadi Yoga has helped her daughter with digestion, trunk control, stamina and breathing. When Tanya was able to blow out birthday candles for the very first time on her 9th birthday, Tanya's mother said it was thanks to Naadi Yoga.

While no official clinical trial has been conducted on the effectiveness of Naadi Yoga for Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Development Delay or Global Development, one cannot deny the empirical effectiveness of this therapy. Collecting research data of changes in patients through our interventions has been vital to our Naadi Yoga and practice. It has helped our team in determining the effectiveness of our therapy interventions. Parents have seen consistent improvement in their children and they praise Dr. Bhatt for having given them hope towards a better future for their children to live a better quality of life.

During our research we have observed that, along with our Naadi Yoga therapies, a good diet also helps to relax the patient’s body and mind. This has helped to significantly improve muscle tone and regulate sensory neurons, which is characteristic of most children with Cerebral Palsy/West syndrome/Autism. This structured diet releases overall stress and tightness throughout the musculature and around the joints. At the same time, the main Naadi Yoga treatment itself helps in relaxing the brain.

Dr. Nishi has completely adopted a new process during the COVID-19 pandemic by helping families with special needs to continue their therapies from the comfort of their homes, which has benefited hundreds of children to continue with Naadi Yoga therapies and bring amazing changes to their health even during these complex and strange times. Her patients’ undying spirits and their faith in her has always encouraged her to do more every day.

Dr. Nishi Bhatt has an incredible dedication for bringing changes to children with special abilities. Her passion has always brought miraculous changes to such children in a short span of time and we at Naadi Yoga find ourselves very fortunate to be led by such a positive, passionate and insightful healer.
