What is ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the science or knowledge of life.
Ayurveda is a traditional natural healing system of medicine originated in India in the Vedic era.
The Ayurvedic approach to health is holistic and considers the healing of mind, body and spirit as essential to health. In Ayurveda the five elements (earth/water/fire/air/ether) in different combinations create the three doshas (Vata,Pitta and Kapha) in our bodies. Each of us has a unique balance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha which determine our constitution. A balance among the tridoshas is necessary for health.
The ingredients of medicine originate mainly from plants, minerals and animals products (ghee, milk). There should be "no unpleasant side effect" but "side benefits" such as reducing heat in the body when needed... Nutrition and activities for healthy living are important components of treatment and disease management in ayurvedic medicine.
During the consultation, I will determine the cause of imbalance and will give nutritional and lifestyle changes together with herbs and a treatment plan if necessary .
