Private Ayurvedic Consultation
Ayurveda appeared from the spiritual texts of India, called the Vedas, the world’s oldest extant literature. “Ayur” means life or daily living, and “Veda” means knowing. It teaches us how to recognize the power of self-knowledge in harmony with nature’s rhythms. Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to a person’s whole being and wellness. This system of healing has been practiced for over 5,000 years and connects human beings to the natural world, keeping or returning a person to their rightful balance.
“Ayurveda offers specifically tailored recommendations for every individual, ranging from general lifestyle changes to the treatment of disease. Ayurveda is a system of individualized healthcare and a complete system of preventative medicine.” ~ Eat-Taste-Heal by Thomas Yarema
During an Ayurvedic Consultation, you will learn about Ayurvedic principles and how they apply to living in a balanced state of overall health and wellness with a deeper sense of joy and happiness. In our session, we will discuss the daily habits (dinacharya) and rhythms of life in correlation to the natural rhythms of nature. After a review of your health history, lifestyle, routines, goals, and any issues you wish to address, we will determine your Ayurvedic constitution. From an Ayurvedic perspective, we will also look at other factors such as energy level, diet, sleep, personal practices (ex. yoga, meditation, prayer) and other parts of your life. Together, we will work with you to develop an Ayurvedic wellness plan which includes a daily routine (dinacharya) to bring balance to your life. Along with foods, herbs, and body practices, this will include tools to help support you on your journey with practices that fit into your own lifestyle.
The purpose of Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultations is to provide insight and recommendations on lifestyle habits to engage the body’s natural healing ability.
