Ayurvedic consultation is your entry point into the world of Ayurveda. A session of Ayurvedic consultation helps the Ayurvedic physician to assess your body mind type, imbalance and recommend you the tailored lifestyle, diet, exercise, meditation and prescribe you the Ayurvedic herbs, massage therapies and detox plans as/ if needed. As Ayurveda is highly holistic, a detailed assessment of history, lifestyle and physical examination is important to make an effective personalised Ayurveda plan for you. During an Ayurvedic consultation, apart from traditional assessment methods you will be assessed via Pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis and assessment of your body-mind type (Prakruti). Pulse diagnosis and Tongue diagnosis are confirmatory tools for experienced Ayurvedic Practitioners to diagnose your body type and imbalance.
Pulse diagnosis is an ancient Eastern diagnostic tool to assess the body and mind. During an Ayurvedic consultation pulse diagnosis is made preferably at wrist with three fingers of the practitioner. Rhythm, volume, intensity and location of pulse at each finger is assessed to diagnose your body type and imbalance. Pulse diagnosis gives an intricate view of one’s energy, deeper metabolism, dosha balance/imbalance and the type of doshas involved.
Tongue diagnosis is another great tool to assess the body. The general appearance of tongue conveys about condition of the body in general. Different areas of tongue represents specific organs, glands and body parts. Tongue will be looked for coating, cracks, ulcers, discolourations, movements and so on to reach into final diagnosis. Tongue diagnosis gives a deeper understanding about your digestion, general metabolism, glands, blood and muscles.
Assessment of body mind type analysis is done by a questionnaire and confirming it by pulse and tongue diagnoses. The questionnaire is detailed and asks you specific questions with quite close options to answer. Quite often you may need some guidance with questionnaire. The understanding of body-mind type helps to understand who you are and your uniqueness and helps the practitioners to make a plan that’s most effective for the unique ‘YOU’.
