An ancient science for a modern lifestyle
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning the Science of Life with its roots in the ancient scriptures of the vedas, this science is over 5000 years old. In
fact it is the oldest system of medicine known which has influenced many medical systems since.
Ayurveda aims to treat the root cause of the illness by balancing our three doshas back to a natural balance for optimum well-being. True balance is only possible when we take a holistic approach and take into account the physical, mental, emotional and environmental factors.
Our bodies are controlled by three bio-energetic forces (dosha) that are made of a combination of five elements, ether, air, fire, water and earth. The doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha work together to maintain regular body functions and when in balance they maintain life. However when one or more dosha is out of balance due to wrong diet and lifestyle choices, it gives rise to various health conditions.
The Ayurvedic Difference
Modern medicine aims to cure illnesses by prescribing drugs to cure the symptoms of the illness. Though this brings fast pain relief, often the underlying issues are not always dealt with and often lie dormant. Today more and more people are turning to complimentary medicine for a traditional and holistic approach to healthcare. Ayurveda aims to treat the root cause of the illness and aims to bring equilibrium by balancing the three doshas to achieve optimum health. Two people with similar conditions may not necessarily receive the same medicine or treatment plan.
How can Ayurveda help you?
Using natural interventions such as herbs, diet, exercise, yoga, massage, aromas, mantras, and meditation, Ayurveda can help prevent, treat and manage acute and chronic health conditions without harmful side-effects to restore the dynamic state of balance.Some common conditions
Issues Ayurveda can address:
Stress and fatigue Compromised immune system
Gastro-intestinal problems (IBS, constipation, indigestion, anorexia, etc)
Headache/Migraine Skin Conditions Respiratory Conditions
Digestion (agni) – the root of optimal healthAgni is the simplest form is the fire within our body, primarily our digestive fire (jathar-agni) and can be considered the subtle form of pitta. In a healthy state, agni allows for good digestion, assimilation, elimination, circulation, nourishment to all body tissues, healthy tissue formation, good complexion, strong immunity and intelligence.
Ama is considered to be undigested or toxic material (food or emotional) that forms as a result of a low or disturbed agni. Ama will accumulate where there is a pre-disposed weakness in the body thus giving rise to different ailments in different people. Ayurveda first and foremost looks to restore the agni one of the root causes of ‘dis-ease’
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, and 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 or online.
Following a consultation, a unique treatment plan is given to the patient which involves dietary and lifestyle changes and specialist herbs (vegetarian, vegan, or simply a healthier version to support the patient's well-being).
Follow-up appointments take place after 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.
