Consultations with Faculty and Practitioners

Initial consultations consist of a brief explanation of ayurveda, detailed history taking to get a clear idea of the causative factors involved, focused Ayurvedic evaluation of your pulse, tongue, eyes, skin and nails, evaluation of Ayurvedic Mind-Body Type (Prakruti) and imbalances (Vikruti) and an Ayurvedic Plan of Diet, Health Routine, Herbs, Yoga, Pranayama & Meditation.

"It was truly a blessing to have a consultation with Dr. Shrestha. I really felt that she understood my condition and she had so much compassion that I felt healed before my consultation was even over. She helped me to see what was missing and how to reveal my true essence. The recommendations she gave and the herbs supported me in my healing process." -Clinic testimonial
