What to expect from Ayurvedic treatment?
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, and sleep.
Consultations take place either in person, occasionally at the patients' home or online using Skype/phone.
Following a consultation, a bespoke treatment plan is given to the patient which involves dietary and lifestyle changes and specialist herbs (vegetarian or vegan). Follow-up appointments usually take place after 2-3 weeks. The length of the treatment depends on factors such as how the disease has developed and the type of support needed by the individual to incorporate healing changes into their life.
All herbs prescribed are either high quality “kitchen herbs” readily available such as cumin and coriander or specialist herbs provided to trained consultants affiliated to the Ayurveda Institute UK. Examples include:
Triphala - Emblica officinalis, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia bellirica
Shatavari - Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus)
Ashwagandha - Withania somnifera Dunal. (Solanaceae)
Paaka Choorna - Asafoetida, black cumin, methi, ajowan
