What to expect from an Ayurvedic consultation?

 

In Ayurveda, all illness is caused by an imbalance in the body (relating to the dosha and constitution of the person). During an initial consultation, we will identify the root cause of the imbalance using a range of diagnostic methods (such as pulse, tongue, eye examination) and extensive discussion of a person's medical history and life history, for example, work and home life, exercise, diet, digestion, and sleep. 

 

Consultations take place either in person, occasionally at the patients' home, or online. 

 

Following a consultation, a unique treatment plan is given to the patient which involves dietary and lifestyle changes and specialist herbs (vegetarian or vegan). Follow-up appointments take place after 2-3 weeks. The length of the treatment depends on factors such as the length of time the disease has developed but typically lasts between 1-6 months.
