All Ayurvedic treatment begins with a consultation. This is to know various aspects of the individual, his body and his mental makeup. In Ayurveda, it is accepted that every person has a unique combination of ‘Doshas”. This ancient Indian ‘Science of Life’ explains that all human beings have a combination of the nature of Air, Space, Fire, Water, Earth and the Soul in them. In a purely biological form, these are termed as ‘Doshas’ which are primarily – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Any increase or decrease of the basic doshas, which play a critical role in the wellbeing of a person, can lead to ‘vikruthi’ or an imbalance that leads to physical or mental discomforts and disorders.
Ayurvedic consultation at Ayur Healthcare Clinic at Parramatta, Sydney begins with the assessment of the person’s body and mind type by trained Ayurvedic physicians. They prescribe diets, lifestyle changes, exercises and special ‘Asanas’ of Yoga as well as medication for consumption, herbal massages, and detox plans as necessary.
Being a very holistic medical science, the lifestyle and personal history of the person is required to make a judgment. The assessment involves pulse and tongue diagnosis, determining the body-mind type, etc. the pulse diagnosis is very detailed and takes into account rhythm, volume, intensity, and location of the pulse of each figure. The diagnosis gives an understanding of the person’s energy, strength of metabolism, imbalances of doshas and predominance of any type of doshas.
The tongue diagnosis conveys the condition of the body in general and gives the medical practitioner indication of coating, cracks, ulcers, discoloration, etc. It leads to an understanding of how good the digestion of the person is, his general metabolism, the functioning of the glands, blood flow and muscles. The person is also asked a series of questions to understand the person’s mental makeup. A part of the consultation fee can be claimed from private health insurance.
