What happens in a visit to an Ayurvedic practitioner?
An Ayurvedic health consultation always starts with a pulse diagnosis. Pulse diagnosis reveals the existing health status and may indicate that you have an imbalance in your body. With an imbalance in the doshas their presence in the body increase or decrease as do the three qualities (vata, pitta, kapha) connected to the doshas. During an Ayurvedic health consultation, I first read your pulse and then I will tell you what I found. Then we will talk about your health, your experienced symptoms and what you want to change or need help with. During the first consultation I will assess your skin, hair, nails, and even do a simplified tongue and eye diagnosis to get a full picture of your health.
After we discussed your imbalances you will get individual and simple advice that support and enhance your health. Together we will agree on dietary changes, breathing and yoga exercises if you want, as well as simple lifestyle changes that are right for you.
According to Ayurveda, your health is affected by circumstances such as diet, season, living and working environment, relationships, thoughts and feelings. It is when balances are disrupted that symptoms arise and give you insight into what is needed to create balance, maintain health and prevent illness. Change takes time and with only small changes over time you will see a big difference in your health and our well-being!
What happens during an online health consultation?
If you decide to meet me online for a consultation, we talk via skype, facebook messenger or facetime video depending on what is available to you. You will receive a health questionnaire and dosa test via email, that you will send back to me 1-2 days prior to our meeting. The consultation is based on the forms, our conversation, Jihva Pariksha (examination of tongue) and Akriti Pariksha (assessment of physique/ general body build).
What is Ayurveda?
The term Ayurveda means “science of life” and is a holistic system that seeks the wellbeing of a person. It is an estimated 5000 years old wisdom for natural health and inner development. Within Ayurveda, each individual has a personal constitution that is based on three doshas (vata, pitta or kapha) which are related to each other. They can be balanced through a variety of treatments such as Ayurvedic massage treatment, dietary changes and various body exercises (asanas). Ayurveda has three basic objectives: to cure and prevent illnesses and imbalances and to develop perfect health.
The aim for balancing the doshas is to make us feel good and happy, to feel in balance with nature and our environment and body-mind balance. Ayurveda therapy provides us with the tools to get balanced more easily and to feel good in all aspects of life. An ayurvedic consultation and treatment is therefore based upon a person’s dosha and their vikritis (dosha imbalances).

What is the difference between a regular health consultation and an Ayurvedic health
Both health consultations I offer are aimed to prevent illness and promote health. Both consultations focus on diet and lifestyle measures to create positive and healthy change. In a regular health consultation, we create a health plan based on the health survey and blood tests or other analysis. The action plan in an Ayurvedic health consultation is based on my pulse diagnosis, body assessment and what you tell me how you feel.
