At Ariani Health Solutions we practise natural integrative medicine. Our approach goes deeper than only trying to take care of the body and its symptoms. We dig a little deeper to include the mind and emotions. Illness and dis-ease stem from this deep level that is often not visible when using regular diagnostic methods.
With so many tools available, it is easier to support our patients for the body to do what it actually wants to do: to heal, find balance and return to homeostasis.*
We are experts in health care committed and passionate about helping patients enhance their health by finding natural solutions based on their SMART needs and goals: EatSMART, FitSMART, EmoSMART, HerbSMART, LiveSMART. We are enthusiastic about health education and ongoing research to help you take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing.
Natural Integrative Medicine techniques support the body’s natural ability to heal, through physiological and biological support, by reducing stress and promoting a state of relaxation that leads to better health.
A multi faceted integrative program, that follows a spiral journey inward and outward, with no beginning and no end. Where you start with the program, therefore is not important; rather that you actually start is!

Science & Nature in Balance
Health and happiness is your birthright but how many people ever really experience optimal health
The absence of illness does not necessarily mean good health. Many people go through life without ever experiencing the joy of feeling on top of the world – being perfectly happy with all aspects of their lives: physical appearance (skin, body shape, weight and muscle tone); fitness; mental-emotional and spiritual wellbeing. In their quest they rush from pillar to post trying to find different service providers for all their needs.
Would it not be wonderful if there could be a place where all their needs can be professionally addressed in one space in a holistic manner? But is there really such a place anywhere in South Africa – or is it merely an impossible dream?
Holistic Medicine Defined
The term, holistic (from root word ‘whole’) medicine, describes therapies that consider the individual as a whole person, part of a bigger system. Therefore, instead of treating only the symptoms of an illness or disease, as in mainstream medicine (allopathy), an individual’s overall physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, occupational and environmental wellbeing will be considered before recommending specific treatments and health coaching protocols.
A practitioner with a holistic approach, will treat the symptoms of illness, while considering the underlying cause. Holistic medicine also attempts to prevent illness or disease, by emphasising optimal health and wellbeing. The body’s systems are seen as interdependent parts of the person’s whole being. The physical body’s natural state is one of health, therefore illness or disease indicates an imbalance in the body’s systems and stable inner milieu (homeostasis). Holistic therapies tend to emphasise lifestyle, a return to normal physiological and biochemical functioning, emotional release work and avoidance of chemical substances that might harm and contaminate the body.
The tools and techniques used, are non-invasive and support the body’s return to its natural state of health.
Our holistic approach comprises of Natural Medicine, Weight Control Clinic, Natural Skin Care, Timeless DNA and Workplace Wellness.
