Maharishi Vedic Approach To Health Consultations
In order to apply the vast body of knowledge that is specific to your individual physiology, it is necessary to see a health consultant trained in Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health. Your health consultant will then be able to more specifically target the imbalances within you and provide individualized recommendations for herbs, diet, and cleansing programs.
Determination of Imbalance through Pulse Diagnosis
Your Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health consultation will mainly focus on unique methods to determine balance and imbalance within the physiology—most notably pulse assessment. Because the circulation flows through every tissue and organ, the state of each tissue and organ subtly changes the pattern and shape of the pulse as it flows beneath the fingers of the expert. Our MVAH experts have been thoroughly trained to read a deeply detailed story of your physiology from the taking of the pulse, including imbalances in the doshas throughout your physiology.
The pulse assessment helps determine not only which dosha(s) is imbalanced but also the location of that imbalance in specific parts of the body. For example Vata may be disturbed in the brain region as a result of chronic mental stress, or the Vata that controls elimination and menstruation can be disturbed. These are very different types of Vata imbalance and will need different treatment regimens.
One of the main advantages of pulse diagnosis is that it can help determine the existence of imbalance that if left untreated could grow into a specific disorder. This early detection of imbalance plays an important role in preventing disease. Discussion of the Ayurvedic pulse assessment can often help individuals understand their symptoms clearly for the first time in their life.
Treating the Cause of Disease and Not Its Symptoms
A Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health consultation helps you receive a program that targets the true root of imbalances in your physiology. For example, several people may have headaches caused by completely different reasons. A modern medical doctor might give everyone the same painkiller, but the Ayurvedic approach would differ from person to person depending upon the dosha imbalances in your body.
Types of Recommendations Made During an Appointment
A personal consultation allows the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health expert to individualize recommendations in many areas. Individualized consultations include the following recommendations:
1) Proper massage oil and technique to use for daily oil massage (Abhyanga)
2) Specific dietary information about foods to favor and foods to reduce or avoid
3) Special cleansing programs specific to your imbalances that can be done at home
4) Specific Yoga asanas and Yoga breathing techniques
5) Individualized behavioral and lifestyle recommendations
6) Individualized herbal recommendations
What to expect at the Wellness Evaluation Consultation
You will fill out a daily routine, lifestyle, and wellness questionnaire prior to your appointment. Upon arriving you will take care of the payment for the consultation and sign your appointment memorandum and hand in your questionnaire. The appointment with the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health experts lasts for about 30 minutes*. During this time, a health educator will take notes. After the consultation with the expert you will meet for another 15-30 minutes with the health educator to review the recommendations and gain the information you will need to follow the recommendations. The health educator will also help you order and purchase any herbal preparations the experts have recommended. Once you start the program at home, the health educator is also available to help clarify any points on your behalf. A follow-up appointment with the health educator is recommended one month after your consultation with the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health expert to review your progress and to share greater knowledge about your health. More frequent visits with the health educator between appointments with the experts is available upon request.
