* Those who are coming from outside and those who have serious health issues are requested to bring a friend or relative or a bystander. Then hospital will be able to take the responsibility to treat the patient. It is difficult for us to maintain all the personal activities of patient. So one bystander along with patientmay be needed in those cases.

* In order to obtain optimal benefit from treatment and not to counteract the efforts of the therapies, patient are advised to follow supportive life style and behavioral practices. This is a very good opportunity to overcome physical, mental and emotional roadblocks. Conserve energy (i.e. Decrease reading , writing and if possible speaking only when needed, refrain from sexual activity, if you walk only go short distances, decrease watching TV or using the computer) during the treatment process, so this can be channeled to optimize and accelerate the healing process.

* Attend to all natural urges without delay. These include yawning, burping, passing flatulence, drinking, crying and evacuating bowls and bladder.
* Minimize your exposure to extreme heat, cold, sun and wind.
* Generally avoid sleeping during the day.

* Please note that in our hospital / Ranikhet, we do not have facility for changing foreign currencies. You are requested to change your foreign currencies from Delhi, before you start your journey to here.
