"Destiny is the result of two factors, which grow together in the life of a human being. One streams outwards from the inner depths of the soul; the other comes to meet the human being from the world around." - Rudolf Steiner

M.B. Barvalia Foundation's Holistic Child Care Centre, established in July 1998, is a unique institute where all work under one roof with a holistic approach through a multidisciplinary team of Homoeopaths, Paediatrician, Neurologist, Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon, Clinical Psychologist, Psychiatric Occupational therapist, Special Educators, Speech therapist, Physiotherapist, Social workers, Counsellor and Yoga therapist.

For our medical management, we have kept Homoeopathy as central therapeutic modality. We encounter number of children with wide spectrum of neuro-orthopaedic problem. Hence, co-ordination with Orthopaedic Surgeon and Neurologist become imperative.

Need for such a comprehensive centre has been felt long by the profession. There has been no such centre in central suburbs.

Children with neuromuscular disability need precise evaluation by Orthopaedic Surgeon and Neurologist. This helps to explore various therapeutic options. In our endeavour to provide total solution-maximum options to disabled children, we are introducing structured unit with multidisciplinary team:

Orthopaedic Surgeon
Physiotherapist
Occupational therapist
Clinical Psychologist
Consulting Neurologist
Homoeopathic Physicians
Consulting Special Educationist


This special unit will cater to following clinical conditions:

Cerebral Palsy

Delayed milestones

Spina bifida

Poliomyelitis

Muscular dystrophies

Myopathies

Arthrogryposis (Multiple congenital contractures)

Congenital anomalies like club foot, congenital hip dislocation

Spinal deformities in children

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Other congenital & developmental neurological disabilities


Paediatric Orthopaedic surgeon's role is crucial to this unit. He thoroughly evaluates the case and coordinates with O.T. & P.T. as well as with Homoeopathic doctors & other relevant experts. He carries out corrective and restorative surgeries whenever necessary.

Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist help to improve tone, mobilization and functional capacity. They use various approaches like: Neurodevelopmental therapy, sensory integration therapy, Bobath's approach etc. They rationally utilize splintage and accessories.

Homoeopathy plays distinct role:

Brings about moderation in sensitivity disturbances.

Improves behavioural disturbances like: Hyperactivity, impulsiveness,
     self injurious behaviour, destructiveness etc.

Helps in controlling involuntary movements, improves co-ordination.

Helps to correct errors of perception.

Helps in managing underlying neurological, metabolic disturbances.

Does not have any adverse or depressing neuro-physiological side effects.

Dr. Taral Nagada, M.S. (Orth). D.N.B., D. Orth (Paediatric & spine Surgeon) is principal orthopaedic surgeon of this unit. He is former associate professor: Seth G.S. Medical College & K.E.M. Hospital; Fellow Paediatric Orthopaediatrics: San Antonio/San Diego (USA). He will coordinate with the entire team of the foundation.

Neuro Surgeon, Dr. Ashish Mehta attached to Breach Candy & Lilavati Hospital is associated with foundation since inception. He gives his services as honorary neurologist.
