A typical initial consultation entails a preliminary health assessment based on Ayurvedic modalities. It usually takes up to an hour. Following this consultation, the Practitioner shall prescribe appropriate dietary and lifestyle regimen based on the individual assessment. Some herbal formulations such as herbal teas, herbal jams, syrups, medicated ghee may also be prescribed along with the dietary prescription. The herbal support is often followed by body treatments such as specialized Ayurvedic massages and steam therapies. In some cases, the Practitioner may prescribe an Ayurvedic detoxification program known as Panchakarma.
Panchakarma is chief among Ayurvedic purification programs known as शोधन क्रिया ( śodhana kriyā ). Panchkarma is an individualized, case-specific detoxification program aimed at removing the deep-seated morbid dosha(s) from body and mind, correcting the intelligence of cells, and strengthening the body to prevent diseases, arrest the ageing process and maintain health. Panchakarma therapy is tailored specific to an individual, taking into consideration various factors such as the individual constitution, current state of health, context (deśa-kāla देश-काल which is geography and time) as well as the mental state. It is aimed at restoring the body to its state of balance, which promotes optimum health in an individual.
Ideally, yes. The Practitioner employs various methods of examination many of which require physical presence of the individual. For instance, नाडी परीक्षा ( nāḍī parīkṣā which is pulse reading) is one of the key modes of examination which cannot be conducted remotely. However, the Practitioner shall determine if an in-person appointment is warranted on a case-by-case basis, and suggest a remote consultation when physical presence is not a viable option.
The length of treatment depends on the nature of the diagnosis, age and the general health condition of the individual. For instance, a treatment course for insomnia in an otherwise healthy individual may be up to a week. In case of an individual with chronic back ache with diabetes, the course could last a few weeks. Ayurvedic protocols have been known to show best results when followed consistently over a period of time. The treatment plan shall be discussed with clients after their initial consultation.
Sri Ranga Ayurveda does not discriminate on the basis of faith, ethnicity, sexuality, gender or race. It is open to one and all seeking health and well-being. Ayurveda is a way of life and it is universally applicable. However, one of the principles of Ayurveda is that the individual should have faith in the treatment administered for the treatment to be effective, and that no treatment should be forced upon anyone. On the basis on this principle and on the basis of the code of ethics laid out by NAMA (National Ayurvedic Medical Association), the Practitioner shall reserve the right to respectfully decline (withdraw) services to (from) those who fail to demonstrate reasonable trust over and commitment to the treatment.
