What Can I Expect?

Typically an Ayurvedic initial intake takes around 1.5-2hrs. The reason being is because, unlike visits to your PCP, which might take 10 minutes, Ayurveda is interested in all of the fine details of your life, not only symptoms of dis-ease.

The goal is to look at the big picture of your life: your relationships, work, diet and lifestyle practices. Ayurveda examines how you use your energy from day-to-day and helps you to align your energy with that of the natural rhythms of life.

Some questions I might ask:
  • How is your digestion?
  • What is the quality of your elimination?
  • How is your sleep?
  • What kinds of foods do you eat?
  • Do you exercise?
  • How are your personal relationships?

After I get a clear picture of what your life is like, I will begin by telling you what I see; what possible activities are causing imbalance. You’ll get a thorough explanation, in Ayurvedic terms, why these activities could cause imbalance.

I will finish by giving you recommendations: either new things to try or altering old habits. The goal is to give you enough to help you get back into balance without overwhelming you. This is different for every person.
