Welcome to Utrecht Ayurveda. I look forward to working together to ensure better health and lifestyle choices for you and your family. Through the ages Ayurveda has been used both as a preventative and a curative health care system.
Ayurveda literally means the “Science of life,” and is person specific as opposed to disorder specific. Ayurveda focusses on the root cause of an imbalance, and seeks to restore balance through diet modification, physical therapies and herbal remedies to alleviate the symptoms. Some of the common concerns that Ayurveda addresses are stress and anxiety, auto-immunity disorders, back pain, digestive issues, skin and hair problems, migraines and other headaches, and insomnia.
The journey begins with a consultation to determine your Prakruthi, (body type and doshic balance). This will help to determine where any of your imbalances may lie. The consultation includes a tongue and eye analysis, as well as a deep pulse analysis and a discussion of your health concerns. Once your body type and doshic balance is determined, I will provide you with a list of foods conducive for you, and also give you a list of food items which should be avoided. If more corrections are required than can be addressed by diet alone, I will suggest certain herbs and/or physical therapies. At the end of our session a dietary and herbal regimen will be provided.
