“AYURVEDA” is made up of two words-Ayuh and Veda. Ayuh means life and Veda means knowledge or science. Thus “AYURVEDA’ in totality means ‘Science of life’. It incorporates all aspects of life whether physical, psychological, spiritual or social. What is beneficial and what is harmful to life, what is happy life and what is sorrowful life; all these four questions and life span allied issues are elaborately and emphatically discussed in Ayurveda. It believes the existence of soul before birth and after death too.
Our first consultation involves determining what your body type (body constitution) is and the current state of balance or imbalance in the doshas. If you are having a particular problem, it is important to find out the underlying cause. Therefore, you may be asked to provide the history of the illnesses in the past, treatment history, family history, occupational history, personal history (diet, lifestyle and habits) etc.
Also taken into consideration is whether your age, your constitution, or the weather is contributing to the problem. To assess your state of health, different diagnostic techniques such as pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis, eye diagnosis, face, lips and nails examination will be used.
Based on the findings you will be given a particular regimen to follow, which may involve Ayurvedic medicines, diet, exercise, breathing techniques and other self-care practices. If necessary, some sort of detoxification programs will be advised, like ‘Panchakarma’, followed by a program for rebuilding the body’s strength and immunity.
Ayurvedic follow-up consultation helps to determine the progress of your health condition, and it happens after two to four weeks from the initial consultation. Pulse, tongue and eyes will be tested this time to find out the progression of the balance of the bodily doshas and accordingly, will make changes in the diet schedule and herbal supplements if needed.
