FAQ

What is Healclinic?

Healclinic is a website that helps you find information on different therapies and connect with alternate therapy practitioners close to you. You can choose between different therapies and practitioners to help you deal with your ailments by making an informed choice based on reviews and answers to your queries by the practitioners.

What is alternate therapy?

Alternate therapy describes all treatment practices, therapies and products that are different from conventional medicine. These therapies work with the belief that a person falls ill when something (physical, emotional, or spiritual) is out of balance and hence they target the root cause of the illness as against treating just the symptoms. Practitioners believe that all the parts of a human body are interdependent. If any one part is not working properly, all the other parts also get affected and this creates imbalance (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives leading to illnesses.

A few examples of alternate system of healing are homeopathy, ayurveda, reiki, pranic healing, acupuncture, acupressure, nutrition therapy, naturopathy, yoga therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, and many more. The basic tenet of all these therapies is that the human body is self healing and a person needs to be treated and not the disease.

Why should I opt for alternate therapy?

Alternate therapy can be used independently or along with conventional medicines to help reduce/eliminate ailments as well as reduce the side effects of long term usage of conventional medicines.

Alternate therapy works on the cause of an ailment rather than the symptom and is more holistic in nature. It uses body’s own power to heal.

These therapies are often used to manage ailments better.

How do I know which therapy/practitioner is right for me?

There are no specializations in alternate therapy as in conventional medicine since it treats the root of the illness and typically all therapies can help alleviate most ailments to some extent. But there are practitioners who are more experienced in dealing with a particular type of illness and/or have researched in a particular area. Hence we have mentioned their areas of expertise under their listing, which you can find by searching for a particular illness.

You can also ask a query to a specific practitioner or through our leave a message option, and based on the response choose an appropriate practitioner whom you think will work for you. You can also refer to client reviews which will give you a fair idea of the practitioner.

By giving a practitioner review you are helping other clients to choose the right practitioner.

What is the guarantee that the patient will be cured?

No system of medicine can guarantee a 100% cure, not even conventional medicine.

Who gives the likes and reviews to the practitioners?

Currently we have an open review system wherein anyone can login and review/like a practitioner. As more and more people use Healclinic, and experience the benefits through the practitioners, we are sure that they will share their experiences through the reviews/like and case references.

Hence, we encourage you to leave a review after you have visited a practitioner as that will help other clients to choose the right practitioner.

Are all reviews posted on Healclinic?

Yes, Healclinic posts all reviews as long as it adheres to the Healclinic review standards. Any reviews containing profanity or vulgarity, will be deleted. Also reviews which are irrelevant to their personal experience with the practitioner will be deleted.

We also encourage you to describe your experience of the consultation and how it has benefited or not benefited you.

Do I have to pay anything for using Healclinic services?

Currently all the services at healclinic are free as healclinic is only acting as a facilitator, any monetary transaction is between client and the practitioner. Going forward healclinic may provide value added services which could be chargeable.

Does Healclinic advise or guide on the treatment plan or recommend a practitioner?

No, Healclinic is a facilitator which helps you connect with the practitioner of your choice. Healclinic is not a medical practitioner and does not advise or provide medical services.

Users of Healclinic should do their own due diligence before finalising a practitioner or a particular “line” of treatment. HealClinic is not responsible for the treatment methodology and approach of the practitioners.
