What I love about Ayurveda is its ability to work amazingly well as a “stand alone” practice. It also provides the flexibility and strength with which to compliment and support allopathic medicine without contraindications.
In an Ayurvedic consultation, we will discuss your unique constitution. Questions and concerns regarding any imbalances you may have will be addressed with recommendations for nutrition, diet, lifestyle, exercise, yoga, & herbs. Follow up consultations will serve to help you maintain balance and avoid future imbalances.
Space & air (vata), fire & water (pitta), and water & earth (kapha) make up the psychophysiological profile of each individual. We are a combination of vata, pitta, and kapha. Vata, pitta, and kapha are elemental energies. Out of balance, vata, pitta, and kapha become doshas. The practice of Ayurveda provides a springboard from which to work in maintaining balance. We are enabled to live a life of balance when we stay connected to our highest good and in sync with nature. Ayurveda provides the ability to have good quality strength and immunity that is our life sap or ojas. We improve our intelligence and discernment, make positive choices, liberate ourselves from fear and suffering, and live in happiness and radiant health with Ayurveda.
Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga, is traditional Indian medicine. One consults with an Ayurvedic practitioner to maintain wellness and treat imbalances. Disease prevention and cure are cultivated through recommendations for diet, lifestyle, relationships, career, exercise, yoga, herbs, and right action. Essentially, all aspects of one’s life are taken into consideration when recommendations are made.
Ayurveda emphasizes the paramount importance of healthy digestion and identification of the root cause of disease to address imbalances; rather than the sole application of palliative measures. Ayurveda also honors and recognizes the need to address seasonal changes and the relationship/effect nature has on an individual’s unique constitution. This provides a foundation for homeostasis of body, mind, and spirit.
