What Dosha Are You?#
So apparently this is a common chat up line at cool urban gatherings. But I feel that in rural Suffolk some explanation might be helpful here.
Ayurveda sees us all as being made up of the 5 great elements found in Nature - space, air, fire, water and earth. So we are all an intrinsic part of Nature and can only be in true balance when we live in alignment with Nature and her seasons. The elements come together to form 3 energies or Doshas - Vata, Pitta and Kapha. At your conception you were created with a unique combination of these 3 Doshas. This blend is called your Prakrirti and is your health blueprint, your elemental constitution, the magic that is you. Discovering your dosha(s) is key to balancing and maintaining your balance and your health.
As an Ayurvedic Consultant I will be able to accurately determine your Prakriti ( natural constitution) and your Vikriti (imbalance) during an individual consultation. An initial consultation is one hour long and includes:
- History taking and in-depth review of current diet and lifestyle
- Discussion of main health concerns and symptoms
- Diagnosis of your natural and current constitution
- Ayurvedic examination including pulse and tongue diagnosis
- Ayurvedic interpretation of your current condition
- Discussion of immediate recommendations
Following the initial consultation I will send you a detailed treatment plan together with appropriate organic herbal formulations when necessary. A follow up consultation lasting around 30 minutes is usually necessary 2 to 4 weeks after the initial consultation. Throughout this period and you are encouraged to keep in touch to share your progress and ask any questions that you may have.
Fees : Cost of Initial Consultation of 1 hour = £50.00
Cost of Follow up Consultation of 45 mins = £30.00
The cost of herbal formulations is in addition to these fees.
Consultations are carried out at my practice in Ipswich.
