The Principles of Ayurveda

In India, from the ancient language of Sanskrit, the word Ayurveda is literally translated as the Science of lifespan. It originates as far back as 5000 years and is believed to be the oldest healing science in existence.

Ayurveda focuses on diet, digestion & nutrition according to each individual, unique in their physical, mental & emotional characteristics, to help restore the body. Through the 5 fundamental elements in nature (earth, water, fire, air & ether) we can understand the human body in 3 basic principles.

A comprehensive Ayurvedic evaluation is given to each and every individual taking into consideration: personal history, family history, personal likes, dislikes, habits and body types, all of which help the practitioner to determine the modality of treatment. Treatments can include dietary, lifestyle and herbal recommendations when necessary. Subtle changes in an individual’s diet, lifestyle and perspectives have resulted in significant, positive changes not only in one’s health and constitution but in the deeper understanding of one’s self.

Evaluation of Body Types are very important in Ayurveda. The body is made up of 3 systems: Structural, Metabolic and Transport. (Kapha, Pitta and Vata). We all have all three, but are predominant in one. These 3 systems also exist in foods and herbs. By understanding what predominance we have, and what foods and herbs can help balance us, we can apply the appropriate remedies.

Assessment is done through the following:

  • Physical Examination
  • Personal health history, diet and lifestyle
  • Family history
  • Body Constitution/type
  • Pulse Diagnosis

 

Treatment may include:

  • Counseling from a Psycho-Spiritual Perspective
  • Individual Dietary Recommendations
  • Individual Lifestyle Recommendations
  • Individual Herbal Recommendations
  • Detoxification treatments
  • Referrals to other providers

Surya FAQs

What can I expect from an Ayurvedic Consultation from Amita?

Since Ayurveda approaches every person uniquely and individually, each consultation will vary based on the needs of the patient.

Amita begins with the 3 methods of diagnosis: Pulse (Nadi Vigyan), Intake Questions (Prashanna) and Physical Examination (Darshan). From there, a conversation will begin regarding health concerns and inquiries. 

Amita will help create a plan of Diet, Herbs and Lifestyle recommendations based on both the root cause and symptoms presented. The consultation is a conversation where both the practitioner and patient can meet together in a way that is beneficial and practical for maximum results.
