Ayurveda life-style consultations generally take between 1 - 1.5 hours, in which time we will ask you a series of questions, and also go through some diagnostic steps with you, including discussing your past medical conditions and history.
Here, we will check your Build, Eyes, Pulse, Tongue, Digestive and Urinary Habits etc.
Unfortunately today, many "Ayurvedic Practitioners" claim to treat disease, but have not studied deeper Clinical Ayurveda and remain "Ayurvedic Massage Therapists" of sorts. This causes many issues, as such Therapists deal with the Prakriti (Constitution) alone, when there can be other undelying factors causing disease!
Age, Sex, Climate and Seasonal effects are also additional factors that need to be assessed when both looking at the Prakriti (Constitution) and also the Vikriti (Disease category) of the person.
Contrary to what many people think, there are three parts to an Ayurvedic Examination: Prakriti (The Biological Constitution) is just ONE part of a proper Ayurvedic Consultation.
The Vikriti (Disease / Imbalance) is not always the same as one's Constitution and forms the second part which must be assessed.
In addition, a Manas Prakriti (Mental Constitution)examines your Mental State of Mind as per the Three Gunas (Modes of Nature: Sattvas (Purity and Clarity), Rajas (Agitation and Passion) and Tamas (Darkness, Ignorance) and is also taken into account.
One's bodily tissues (dhatus) and their states, as also the channel systems (srotas) etc. in the body are also examined and assessed in our full consultations also, noting any issues you may have and what factors are behind them as the root cause.
After this, the next follow-up Consultation(s) will measure your progress, and take note that your dietary and lifestyle changes are being adhered to, for proper changes to occur. This is crucial in the first three months, especially.
We must realise that in our lives, due to incorrect diet and lifestyle, we take in many toxins (ama) into our body, which does take some time to dislodge. We spend our lives doing so, so we also must be patient with our changes. In saying this, changes will occur in our bodies, once we begin to change our typical lifestyle tendancies for the better!
