Ayurvedic Treatments

Ayurveda recognises that we are not the same. We are all unique and therefore need something different. Two people can present with the same problem, however, the treatment may be different for both. Ayurveda focuses on eliminating the root cause of all problems. The following are a sample of our speciality treatments.

The whole exercise and purpose of Ayurvedic treatment is to help us remove the excess Doshas andtoxins accumulated over the years due to incompatible and incorrect life-style. The excess Doshas and toxins may/may not have caused any apparent disease thus far but nevertheless Ayurvedic pulse reading and diagnosis helps us to see subtle disturbances. Such disturbances, if left unchecked, may contribute later on to further excess Doshas and toxins accumulating and further disturbance to your Prakriti. The pulse readings give us a ‘road map’ showing us where we have come from, where we are now, and also where we are heading. This allows us to take the necessary steps to remove excess Doshas now and adjust our lifestyle to continue to manage our Prakriti for the rest of our lives.
We can achieve the correction, restoration and management of your constitution through short- and long-term treatments. An explanation of these approaches is given below followed by specific recommendations for you.

Short-Term Treatment

This phase of treatment includes Ayurvedic Herbal formulas; Ayurvedic oil massage; Yoga for Doshas therapy; and Pancha Karma. The period of short-term treatment is not fixed but depends on your needs and much will depend on you; your attitude, discipline and commitment; also the degree of any disturbances and how stubborn the excess Doshas are to remove. Typically this short-term intensive treatment may last for one to several months. Panchakarma may follow after your follow up consultation once you are suitably stable and prepared. All short-term treatment will be individually prepared to suit your unique constitution and will focus on detoxification.

Long-Term treatment

This aspect of treatment mainly deals with lifestyle management - meaning, how to live your life on a moment-to-moment basis without disturbing your natural and unique state (Prakriti). This starts from the time you have your consultation and your acceptance of the recommendations and continues throughout your life. This phase of the treatment includes gaining knowledge on how to manage your Dietetics, exercise, attitude, work, relationships, the ever-changing environment and climate, and developing an appropriate time-management routine. This lifelong approach is what traditional Ayurveda is really all about, the awareness and practical application of this knowledg each day and in every moment to manage your unique Prakriti. Here, we treat each patient with long-term stability in mind. While short-term treatment is very important when Doshas are aggravated and disturbed (for detoxification) and to rebuild and nurture (for rejuvenation), treatment is still a temporary aspect - not the main or only consideration. Traditional Ayurveda works to remove excess Doshas and to support and educate the individual (often times disease symptoms may disappear or reduce once a person’s Doshas become more stable and an individual takes on more responsibility for managing their life).
