Dr JP Rathi

Ayurveda Acharya
Ganga Prem Hospice

Dr JP Rathi

Dr JP Rathi has been offering his consultations as an Ayurvedacharya to Ganga Prem Hospice patients since early 2009. An experienced Ayurvedic practitioner, who is also well-versed with Allopathy, Dr Rathi has been living in Rishikesh since 1982 after he completed his formal professional studies in Ayurveda. "I decided to live in Rishikesh as I found it to be a very peaceful place," says Dr JP Rathi, who is originally from Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh.

"At the Ganga Prem Hospice clinic, I find that cancer patients tend to have reduced immunity and some Ayurvedic medicines can be particularly useful in building the body's immunity," says the Ayurvedacharya who sits across the table with the Ganga Prem Hospice oncologist, Dr AK Dewan, and advises patients on their symptoms.

Dr JP Rathi's work as a consulting Ayurvedacharya in the Parmarth Niketan in Rishikesh has given him ample experience to deal with patients via Ayurveda as well as through Allopathy. "I came to know about Ganga Prem Hospice when I saw a banner announcing the free of charge cancer clinic in Rishikesh. I was intrigued and happy to see that cancer patients were being given service and decided to join in at the clinic," explains Dr Rathi about how he decided to offer his services to the Hospice monthly cancer clinics. A warm and simple person, Dr Rathi is always quick to help patients in whatever way he can, at the clinic.
