WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT AN AYURVEDA CONSULTATION
The first consultation lasts 60 minutes. Avi will take a detailed medical history covering not only your current complaint and medications, allergies, and family history, but also your diet and lifestyle. Your pulse and tongue will be checked - this will give the practitioner a deeper understanding of the underlying issues. As Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic system of health, this will explore areas such as how we interact with ourselves and others. Many people will have a keen interest in yoga and meditation, this will give each seeker a better understanding of their connection to the wider universe. Here Avi will give a detailed insight into your unique Body/Mind type (Dosha), explore the bodily tissues (Dhatus), and channels (Srotas), when Avi brings these three levels together this will bring a clear picture of the root cause. Like many people who come to Ayurveda it is to become in sync with the self, season, and our environment. This will be covered in diet and aftercare.
Your Diet/Lifestyle plan will then be discussed and agreed with you to suit your needs. Following the consultation, Avi will formulate suitable herbs individually tailored to your needs which may include a tea (dried herbs), supplements and oils. Nutritional or lifestyle advice, if appropriate, may also be given where required to suit your Dosha and Prakriti (unique body type).
A follow-up consultation will take place 2-3 weeks later to monitor your progress. This will last approximately 30 minutes. If you need further consultations, additional visits are generally at four or six-week intervals to help integrate the plan and lifestyle.
Avi is a qualified Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle consultant. As fourth generation British Indian, his love for his culture developed from a very young age, exploring the spiritual realms, and integrating this in various ways. One of these ways that took him from the start was the plethora of herbs and spices at home with his mother and grandmothers. He learned that our food is our medicine. This led to the journey of the versatility of preparations of herbs in teas, tinctures, oils. Naturally this developed with his own travels of seeing the various systems of medicine around the globe on his journeys to India, USA, the Far East and North Africa.
Avi qualified under the great care, support and guidance of Dr. Deepa Apte, in the heart of London - Founder of Ayurveda Pura Clinic and Academy. Dr. Apte is a fully qualified Indian Medical Doctor (Bachelor of Medicine; Bachelor of Surgery, India), a qualified Yoga teacher and a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner. She is also an Executive Director of the APA (Ayurvedic Practitioners Association) of UK.
Having had the chance to meet various teachers before knowing this path was for him, after a beautiful experience in the Ganges, Avi returned to his roots and realised Avi what he could offer to Glasgow.
Just as he was taken on a journey to the roots of the Vedic culture of the Indus valley, come with Avi and let him guide you each step of the way back to the source of you using Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation.
