According to Ayurveda, all disease is caused by an imbalance in dosha (constitutions). Determining which of the dosha is imbalanced and thus the root cause of disease requires extensive training and knowledge.
At your initial consultation especially, be prepared to talk about yourself. Ayurveda emphasises balance in all areas of life and so the physician will be using various diagnostic methods to examine your body as well as taking an extensive personal and medical history. This may include amongst other matters, an understanding of your diet, your professional life and working conditions, relationships, mental health and exercise routines.
In this way the Ayurvedic Physician is able to identify the potential causes of imbalance in the mind or body and can provide a bespoke treatment plan that will include dietary advice, herbal medicines and any other Ayurvedic treatments.
