A Passion for Treating
Dylan says, “The most important aspect when treating a patient is the physician (Vaidya/Bhishek).
Next in importance is the herbs (dravya), then the staff/helpers (upastata), then the patient (rogi) (their ability to surrender and adhere to the treatment plan).
This is a core Ayurvedic principle and one that I appreciate and experience.
What makes a treatment effective and profoundly change the physiology at a deep level with lasting effects is the energy, attention, purity and flow of consciousness from the physician ("Sattvic Soma").
I love exchanging my "Sattvic Soma" with clients and witnessing profound change, from subtle to gross, in their health, wellbeing and vitality.”
What is an Ayurvedic consultation?
WHEN was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the empathetic attention you deserve?
Ayurvedic medicine (sometimes called Ayurveda), is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.
It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. But treatments may be geared toward specific health problems.
