Consultation

 

With the help of herbs, diet and lifestyle advice a solid foundation is laid for physical wellbeing. This is supported by counselling, coaching and healing to provide a holistic system including the emotional, mental and spiritual issues involved. Concerns that are dealt with include chronic long-term disease, sudden health crises, feeling not quite right, resolution of limiting patterns and addictions, help in achieving goals and support with the next step in life.

 

Today there is a widespread revival in the natural ways of regaining and preserving health. In the same way that we are now concerned with our environment, we know that our internal environment will benefit from natural alignment with the wisdom of Nature. We have evolved alongside plants and depend on them for air, food, warmth, clothing and medicine. The blessing of herbs is to help us to create the balance within, on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. From treating acute stages of illness through to deeply replenishing the system, the plants that bring us the flowers of the world, help us reach the same place of vigor and health within.

 

In consultation we will look at your health concerns, case history, family background, physical health, lifestyle, diet and mental and emotional outlook. We will also use tongue diagnosis and for those in person, pulse diagnosis. Treatment will include herbs administered in tincture or powder form to be taken typically three times a day. This will be accompanied with healing diet and lifestyle advice. Long-term prevention of illness is another aspect of Herbal Medicine and clients may also wish to continue with herbs after the resolution of the acute stage. As the herbs help us regain our immediate health, they also support the inner work we are doing to be in better relationship with ourselves and the world.

 

Uniquely crafted organic herbal formulas are prepared for each person.

Ayurveda

 

Ayurveda understands that we are born with a unique constitution and that through the effects of our environment, thoughts, emotions, diet, age and karma our constitution changes day to day. The purpose of treatment is to bring our current constitution into alignment with our original one. When we are living closer to our true self we feel more rounded, centred, easier and happier.

 

This is the purpose of Ayurveda, known as the ‘Science of Life/ Longevity’ or ‘the Art of Living Wisely’ – to promote a healthy life so that we are able to fulfil our duties and pursue our higher aspirations. Good health is the foundation to life. By good health we mean not simply the absence of disease but a state in which we are engaged in life, living to our full capacity, thriving and dancing with the deep richness of Life. This is our potential and choice.

 

Ayurveda is a holistic medical system that has existed for thousands of years, having been refined for countless generations to take into account the spiritual, psychological, emotional and physical aspects of a human being. It seeks the optimal health of the individual through the prevention as well as removal of disease when present and aims to help one flourish according to their own nature.  

 

Digestion is of core importance to our health and in Ayurveda the functioning of our digestive system is understood as the root of all disease. This is a central belief in all the Eastern Medicine traditions that the modern West is realising more and more. Ayurveda offers ageless wisdom with regard to the diet appropriate for different people, and the effect it has on health and disease management.  These universal laws can be applied to our local foods and herbs, illnesses and prevention of disease.
