Recommendations may include:
- Personalized stress management techniques that will allow you to wash away any tension, fear, or conditioned thought-patterns that cloud the mind.
- Dietary recommendations to reduce inflammation and identify proper nutrition for your mind-body type to balance your body and reduce any inbalances.
- Tools to overcome emotional challenges so you may begin to experience a greater emotional well-being.
Phone consultations can benefit those dealing with a wide variety of health concerns including sleep disturbances, digestive difficulties, effects of stress, emotional challenges, and weight issues. Because phone or skype consultations do not include a physical examination, they are not intended to diagnose or treat specific medical conditions. If needed, the patient may be advised to seek ongoing medical attention by a local health care provider.
The purpose of the Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultations is to provide insight and recommendations on lifestyle habits to engage the body’s natural healing ability.
