Today, as I considered what to share with you, I heard this little voice in my head say "Julie, WHAT even happens in a consultation?" Are YOU wondering this? Was it YOU in my head??? Let me share that information with you here:
What exactly happens during an Ayurvedic consultation?
You and I will begin by going over your current health questionnaire that you completed and sent to me prior to our meeting. I will spend considerable time asking you specific questions in order to get to know YOU, and also to understand some of your tendencies-this helps me discover your prominent dosha-type as well as your dosha imbalance.
I will explain to you the doshas, the Ayurvedic "clocks", and dinacharya routines as well as the six tastes-all the while, explaining Ayurveda as it relates to YOU and how your health can be supported by understanding yourself in this way.
I will examine your tongue, nails and eyes to learn more about your current state of health.
And finally, you'll be given suggestions/protocols to work with this system of health and healing. These suggestions and protocols are unique for each person and will be determined by what's going on with you as a whole person, not just by your symptoms.
If you choose a basic consult you will leave with a firm understanding of your primary dosha and your current imbalance (if there is one) along with suggestions for finding balance or maintaining balance.
With a whole health consult you will receive everything mentioned above plus, you'll also receive another follow-up appointment. This appointment takes place two weeks after your initial meeting. We'll go over my detailed report of findings. This report includes personalized routines, diet/exercise/herb suggestions and specific recommendations for your current health condition. Following this appointment, I will check in with you a month later via email to see how you're doing with the recommendations.
Seasonal consultations are also very popular and are ideal for those looking to understand how to stay balanced when the weather changes. In Northeast OH, seasonal changes are volatile and can have a big effect on how you feel. Understanding how to avoid disruption in your body and mind using the principals of Ayurveda is extremely helpful in feeling good all year round!

I'm often told by clients that it's unfortunate physicians don't have more time to spend with their patients because they realize after their consult that there is much more to healing someone than simply treating their symptoms- it's understanding the whole person.
Ayurveda takes us to the root cause of disease and teaches us how to reconnect with our natural healing abilities. I hope you'll allow me to be your guide to understanding this incredible system of health and healing from India.
Have a beautiful week, friends!
