3 Things To Expect When You Visit An Ayurvedic Practitioner

Health & Medical Blog

An Ayurvedic practitioner focuses on finding a balance between mind, body, spirit, and social wellbeing in order to be healthy. They practice an alternative and naturalistic form of medicine that is based on the concept that the body has all of the components needed to heal itself and that we should allow our bodies to do so. While they aren't opposed to medicine, they believe that it should be a tool to help the body do it's job, rather than taking over the body's job. If you are considering going in to see an Ayurvedic practitioner, it is nice to be able to know what you can expect during your appointment. This article will discuss 3 things to expect when you go to see a Ayurvedic practitioner

Talk About Yourself 

Because the focus on balance is the key aspect to a healthy body and lifestyle to an Ayurvedic practitioner, they are going to spend a great deal of time having you talk about yourself. They will ask questions not only about your medical history, but also about your job, your family, your exercise level, your diet, and other questions that relate to your lifestyle. This helps them to get a good idea of who you are as a person, which can help them to see any areas where you may have a loss of balance in your life, thus creating unbalance in your body. 

They Will Observe, Touch, And Question

Once you have told them all about yourself, they will then have you focus on the reason that you are there. They will observe your body to look for signs of an illness or imbalance. Next they will give you a physical examination where they will use the sense of touch to examine you. Lastly, they will ask you questions that are directly related to your illness to help diagnose you. 

Tailored Treatment 

Once the practitioner has given you a full evaluation, they will then determine the best kind of treatment for you. Rather than prescribing a medication that they would give to anyone with this illness, they will instead give you more of a tailored treatment. They will first focus on re-balancing your body. They may have you make some changes to your sleep schedule, your diet, your exercise routine, etc. And then, they may or may not give you a prescription that can simply help your body to do what it is naturally created to do, which is heal itself.
