Discussion, diagnosis and treatment advice designed to restore and maintain optimal health.
If you are suffering symptoms of poor health, or you know you have a condition that impedes your optimal wellbeing, an ayurvedic consultation can diagnose where you are out-of-balance, and offer advice and treatments designed to bring you back to optimal health.
Even if you are not sick, and are already enjoying good health, an ayurvedic consultation can be enormously beneficial by supporting you to make sure that your good health lasts a lifetime!
During an Ayurvedic consultation at Vibrant Ayurveda Wellness Centre, you can expect a comprehensive assessment of your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Our experienced Ayurvedic doctors (Vaidyas) follow a holistic approach to understand your unique constitution (Prakriti) and any imbalances (Vikriti) in your body. Here’s what typically happens during an Ayurvedic consultation:
- Initial Discussion: The consultation usually begins with a discussion about your medical history, current health concerns, lifestyle, and daily routines. This information helps the Ayurvedic doctor understand your overall health context.
- Questioning and Observation: The doctor will ask detailed questions about your appetite, digestion, sleep patterns, energy levels, and any specific symptoms you’re experiencing. These questions help in identifying imbalances and their root causes.
- Eye, Tongue and nails Examination: The doctor might examine your eyes, tongue and nails for additional insights into your health. Changes in the tongue’s appearance and the eyes’ clarity can provide valuable diagnostic information.
- Pulse Examination (Nadi Pariksha): Pulse diagnosis is a crucial aspect of Ayurvedic assessment. The doctor will gently feel your pulse to gather information about the balance of your doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and any potential imbalances.
- Physical Examination: The doctor might conduct a physical examination, which could include assessing your gut health(Agni) as healthy Agni is one of the most important factor for a good health.
- Constitutional Assessment: Based on the gathered information, the doctor will determine your unique constitution, which is a combination of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas. This forms the basis for tailoring the treatment and lifestyle recommendations.
- Imbalance Identification: The doctor will identify any imbalances in your doshas, which could be causing your current health issues. These imbalances are analysed in relation to your constitution.
- Personalized Recommendations: Following the assessment, the doctor will provide personalized recommendations to restore balance and promote overall well-being. This might include dietary suggestions, herbal remedies, lifestyle adjustments, exercise, and relaxation techniques.
- Treatment Plan: If needed, the doctor will propose a treatment plan, which could involve specific Ayurvedic therapies such as Panchakarma- Detox, dietary changes, and daily routines. This plan is designed to address your current health concerns and bring your doshas back into harmony.
- Q&A and Discussion: You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns you might have about the suggested treatment plan. The doctor will provide explanations and clarifications to ensure your understanding and comfort.
- Follow-Up: Depending on your health condition, a follow-up consultation schedule might be recommended. Follow-up consultations allow the doctor to monitor your progress, make necessary adjustments, and fine-tune the treatment plan.

Vaidya is a Sanskrit word meaning “physician.” Specifically, it refers to a practitioner of Ayurvedic healthcare science, an ancient form of healing with roots in India. Traditionally, a senior practitioner was called a vaidyaraja(physician king), while the personal vaidya of Indian royal families was known as raja vaidya (king’s physician). Today, students of traditional Ayurvedic medicine train for up to 12 years before being conferred with the title of vaidya.
Ayurveda treats disease on a mental and emotional level, as well as on a gross physical level. A vaidya has studied all three aspects of healing. Illness and health are seen in the context of a person’s overall personality and circumstances, including family life and daily habits. Vaidyas must study not just medicine, but all aspects of life – individual and cosmic.
The vaidya diagnoses imbalances through observation of the face, eyes, skin and through pulse diagnosis, known as nadi vigyan. The pulse is taken with three fingers representing the three doshas (basic energies): vata, pitta and kapha. The vaidya also observes the patient’s personality and asks questions about lifestyle and diet.
Once a diagnosis is made, the vaidya recommends changes in diet, lifestyle and daily routine to correct imbalances. The vaidya may also suggest herbal remedies and other natural healing methods.
