Welcome to Utrecht Ayurveda
With locations in both Utrecht and Amsterdam, I am proud to bring authentic Ayurvedic consultations and therapies to the Netherlands.
Embark on a journey towards improved health and lifestyle choices for you and your family through Ayurveda. With a history rooted in prevention and cure, Ayurveda, the 'Science of Life,' offers personalized solutions.
Addressing root causes, Ayurveda restores balance using diet, physical therapies, and herbal remedies for concerns like stress, auto-immunity, pain, digestion, skin, hair, headaches, and insomnia.
Begin with a consultation to identify your unique Prakruti (body type and doshic balance), and identify imbalances. This includes tongue, eye, and pulse analysis, discussing your health concerns.
Upon assessing your Prakruti, I'll provide a tailored list of foods to favor and avoid.
If deeper corrections are needed, herbal remedies and therapies may be recommended.
Our session concludes with a custom dietary and herbal regimen, guiding your path to well-being.
Online Consultations are available!
I am available for consultations via FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp and Zoom!
Ayurveda (pronounced Aa-yur-vay-da) stands as a global medical system. Originating around 5000-6000 years ago on the Indian subcontinent, it emerges as a comprehensive, holistic medical approach.
The term 'Ayurveda' comes from two Sanskrit roots: 'ayus,' signifying life or life cycle, and 'vid,' denoting knowledge. Hence, Ayurveda translates to knowledge of daily living and life cycles—a system for attaining and upholding health.
Ayurveda teaches that the balance among three subtle energies or forces—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—sustains health. The goal of Ayurveda involves harmonizing these forces to support physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.
All Ayurvedic treatments work towards restoring harmonious balance in these forces, prioritizing their equilibrium over the manifestation of imbalances.
This approach emphasizes causes over symptoms. Given that each person holds a unique blend of these three forces, Ayurvedic treatments become personalized, transcending specific disorders.
Such an approach has proven effective over the centuries and as a result, many of Ayurveda’s healing regimens have been adopted and refined by peoples all over the world.
Consultations and Treatments are now partially covered by select insurance companies!
