Consultations – Ayurvedic treatment is aimed towards regaining our natural balanced state or ‘prakruti’ and the Ayurvedic practitioner considers all possible Ayurvedic treatments & techniques that could provide effective treatment for the patient to regain their health & equilibrium. The treatment has three stages.
The first stage of the consultation the Ayurvedic practitioner looks for causative factors and asks the patient to alter their diet & lifestyle as necessary.
Secondly seeking to strengthen the immune system of the patient with the relevant Ayurvedic remedies to balance or increase the digestive process or ‘agni’ and improve elimination. This helps to improve assimilation of nutrients in the diet and to aid in the elimination of waste products and toxins or ‘ama’ from the body.
Thirdly, treating the main symptoms or condition with suitable Ayurvedic herbal remedies to subdue the illness or disease process. The patient will also have the opportunity to voice any emotional or psychological problems that they may have as this also greatly effects the disease process.
