Ayurvedic Consultation

Ayurveda (translated from Sanskrit as "knowledge of life") is an ancient system used to understand the healthy functioning of human beings. It places the mind-body relationship at the highest level and acknowledges that human beings are interconnected with the natural world. Ayurveda recognizes and celebrates our differences and therefore offers a personalized approach to health.

An Ayurvedic consultation assesses diet, sleep, digestion, elimination, pulses and lifestyle patterns to recognize and understand imbalances. Root causes of health challenges and how to naturally restore balance to physiology are addressed and corrected. Internal awareness increases as we make choices that support imbalance corrections and improved functioning. Ayurveda teaches that healing comes from within when we are in tune with ourselves and nature. Some imbalances are easily shifted, while others take longer to restore. Ayurveda provides an active, gentle approach by incorporating time-tested principles and practices into a regular routine for benefits that last a lifetime!

An initial consultation includes an assessment of imbalances and constitution, an Ayurvedic health interview and a holistic wellness plan as well as applicable handouts for recipes, guidelines and example lifestyle practices. Follow-up appointments are recommended every 2-4 weeks until balance is restored and then seasonally. Although many symptoms improve quite rapidly, others take longer, depending on the length of time the imbalances have existed and one's willingness to embrace the recommendations.
