What happens in an Ayurvedic Consultation?

by Arjun   

Ayurveda is the science of life that revolves around wellness from a deep spiritual level. It is a five-thousand-year-old wellness system that strives to know and live the word “health”. 

Ayurveda analyzes the human body on the basis of the existence of five great elements and advocates that the knowledge of these elements is essential to understand the interrelation of our mind, body, and spirit in the language of the Doshas- the three dynamic energies. 

The Doshas are the blend of specific elements that decide our psyche. The Bio-energies are known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha in Sanskrit. Each one of us is a unique balance of the Tridoshas. This means we’re all composed of all the three doshas just in variable amounts and different combinations where one dosha may be dominant over the other two. 

This blend of doshas, the Dominant ones that govern our psyche and form our unique blueprint is called Prakruti. Our Ayurvedic consultations have a very individualistic approach and are designed in such a way that honors and appreciates your Prakruti.

Our experienced Ayurvedic doctors (Vaidyas) will help you to discover your unique mind-body constitution during your consultation. Your diet, lifestyle modifications, and everything under the treatment line will revolve and honor your individuality. 

“One who is established in self,  who has balanced doshas (life energies), balanced Agni (digestive fire), properly formed dhatus (tissues), proper elimination of malas (waste material), well functioning bodily processes and whose mind, soul and senses are happy is called a healthy person.”

– Sushruta Samhita 15.38

In a typical Ayurvedic consultation, our Ayurvedic Vaidyas analyze your issues from a deep holistic perspective. This usually involves a deep history discovery, in which we study the root causes and manifestation of illnesses. 

The Methodology

We keep in mind the sacredness of Ayurveda and implement a total authentic approach when it comes to consultations by observing ancient ayurvedic diagnostic tools of “Darshana”, “Sparshana”, “Prashna”. 

Darshana involves observation. Our body gives out various signals through our body structure, our body language by the way we talk or react which actively help in diagnoses and are skillfully picked by our experienced doctors. 

Prashna involves extensive questioning. Our Vaidyas get a better understanding of your lifestyle, diet, sleep and other patterns through conversations and questions leading to a better understanding of the illness. 

Sparshana typically involves diagnoses through the medium of touch, where we understand the pulse and basic evaluations like body temperature, auscultations, palpitations, etc.

With the advancement in technology and tools, our Vaidyas will do their best to analyse and understand you thoroughly through the aforementioned methodologies.

What a typical consultation covers?

Though each individual is unique in his/her own way, your typical ayurvedic consultation with us will cover,

  • Deep History Discovery
  • Dosha Analysis 
  • Extensive Questioning for better understanding of manifestation
  • Pulse & Tongue diagnosis
  • Counselling
  • A thorough treatment plan
  • Radical lifestyle modifications
  • Advice on dietary changes, etc

Ayurveda believes in understanding the root cause of any illness. No band-aid technique and no temporary symptomatic relief here. Ayurvedic treatments are extensive, they might even take time but the wait is worth the results. This Science focuses on tiny details and knows your body minutely. It even helps you to tune in with yourself and discover who you really are. 

An Ayurvedic treatment is often referred to as a journey of self-discovery, a journey of total mind-body healing. 

During an Ayurvedic consultation, our Vaidyas (Ayurvedic Doctors) thoroughly examine you with the help of various ayurvedic diagnostic techniques to curate a treatment plan that resonates with your individuality and check the illness from its roots. This means it’s literally a one-way journey towards health and a better lifestyle. 

One can also take up an Ayurvedic consultation in view to improve and level up his or her lifestyle and the way of living. 

“ Swasthasya Swasthya Rakshanam” translates “To keep the health of a healthy individual intact’’. This goes to show that Ayurveda as a science strongly believes in the idea that Prevention is always better than cure.
