An Ayurvedic consultant is an individual who is trained to conduct Ayurvedic assessments/consultations and make recommendations using Ayurveda. The consultant will determine your Dosha or prakuti. From there he/she will determine the imbalance within your body and mind. Then the consultant can create an individualized treatment plan, which often includes diet, exercise, herbs, yoga, meditation, and massage. The plan generally focuses on restoring balance to one particular Dosha first then moving onto the next (if needed).
What to expect ?
An Ayurvedic Consultation is typically 2 hours long, the reason it is so long is because we need one hour to ask our questions, talk about your complaints and check your pulse, tongue and eyes. The second hour is to talk about things to change in your diet and lifestyle, also to talk about Ayruveda and answer any questions that may arise.
Things you will want to think about before arriving is what your complaints and goals are, what has changed in your life physically and mentally.
How to prepare ?
The only way to 'prepare' for an Ayurvedic consultation is to be as 'clean' as possible. What that means is not too hungry or starving, if your stomach is too full or empty it will be difficult to find your correct pulse. Not having a very busy or stressful day is helpful as well.
The best time of the day to do a consultation is in the morning, that is when we are at our most calm and open.
Panchakarma is the detox and rejuvination program for not only your body but also your imnd and soul and all of it stems from Ayurveda and its vast pool of knowledge. Panchakarma is the process of any variety of treatments but on a daily basis, it could be as little as 3 days all the way to 29 days (the more days the deeper it goes).
Panchakarma is known to be a powerful way to not only remove toxins and impurities from the body and mind but also to help your body and mind learn waht it means and feels like to be more balanced and healthy. Viveda strives to make it deep and powerful experience.
Panchakarma like Ayurveda is simple in its essence, but also like Ayurveda it goes very deep. So deep that you will still be processing the experience years later and craving to continue the process and becoming or staying balanced.
We all know what Yoga is now but Ayurveda is still growing on this side of the earth. Did you know that Ayurveda and Yoga are actually sisters? They were made to work together, in unison to aid the body, mind and soul in becoming or staying balanced. While Ayurveda is a real lifestyle, Yoga is more of one of the activities that you can do within your lifestyle. Yoga is something that you can do with a teracher but also once you learn it you can do it at home at your own pace and time. One reason that Yoga and Ayurveda really are so good is because they are simple and can be done almost anywhere, maybe when you are in line at the bank you can move your eyes in a circle to help your vision or maybe when at home cooking you can go into warrior pose to get ready for the digestion process to come.
