What is Ayurveda and how can it help you?
Ayurvedic treatment focuses on:
– Herbal medicine
– Therapeutic massage
Ayurveda is a traditional medicinal system, dating back at least 7,000 years. It remains a common practice in the East and, over time, has integrated into other health systems. Many articles on holistic health and complementary medicine will originate from Ayurvedic philosophy such as the use of herbs in food and teas, medicated oils for aches and pains and daily routines that promote well-being.
“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use; when diet is correct, medicine is of no need”
In gaining an understanding of your individual constitution and digestion, many conditions can be effectively treated and good health maintained.
Does your diet suit your Dosha?
I am Here to Help Guide Y0u
Over the last 18 months that I have been practising Ayurveda it has become highly apparent how much people like to talk about their diet and how easy it is to engage in conversations about what we eat. The issue is that, for each of us ‘diet’ means something slightly different and due to articles in the media the idea that a diet, rather than nutritional intake, is increasingly embedded in the subconscious as a restriction. There will always be those lifelong dieters who, unfortunately, will see nutrition as a struggle and have come to believe that they will never be able to relax about what they eat and drink and I fear that the more we read read about generic diets the more problematic this issue will become.

Frequently Asked Questions
Learn How it Works!
Is Ayurveda a diet?
In a word, no. Ayurveda is not a diet, it is a way of life. Food being part of our lifestyle naturally becomes part of Ayurvedic treatment. Often, poor nutrition is the culprit of disease (second to stress). You should expect this to form a major part of a consultation and to receive detailed advice as to what to favour and avoid, as well as how to prepare and cook certain foods.
How does Ayurveda work?
The way in which Ayurvedic treatment works is by looking holistically at the patient as well as the symptoms of the condition. The Ayurvedic consultation involves spending time talking with the patient to find out the nature of the issue before offering dietary and lifestyle advice and prescribing certain herbs to take.
Should I keep my Dosha in balance
In very general terms Ayurveda suggests that we keep our Dosha in balance by considering the qualities of the food we eat and using nutrition to restore balance by not aggravating the dominant Dosha.
