Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation In Melbourne

 

Are you looking for in-depth Ayurvedic lifestyle consultation or consultant near me (Northcote, Wantirna South, Melbourne), and then why not consider Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. We have a team of Professional, trained and highly experienced Ayurveda Doctors.

 

What is Ayurvedic Consultation?

 

Ayurvedic Consultation is the first step towards the journey to holistic and natural health goal.

 

Your Ayurveda Doctor will help you diagnose the health concerns and identify illness according to different Ayurvedic principles. 

 

It is also important to assess the different strengths and weakness of an individual in terms of their unique Ayurvedic body type, before the right lifestyle modification can be prescribed with different herbs, Ayurveda treatments, Ayurvedic medicine and yoga exercise.


Many people may have an opinion that all Ayurveda herbs or treatments have a general healing nature and regardless of the kind of problem, everyone will seek benefit from it. Some people end up buying Ayurvedic medicine over the counter or online or use Dr Google! That practice can be dangerous and may cause adverse effects.

 

However, in order to get the optimal benefits of Ayurvedic herbs and select the correct medicine from thousands of medicinal herbs, it is very important to understand the exact body type of a person and diagnose the main imbalanced dosha.


 

Based upon those diagnosis, our team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic including Gurnam Saini or Pooja Saini (Qualified Ayurvedic Doctors from India) come to the right decision regarding which type of lifestyle corrections, food items, yoga, Ayurvedic herb and Ayurvedic treatment or detox may be applied.

 

 

 
 

 

Whats does an Ayurvedic consultation involve? 

 

 

 

An Ayurvedic Practitioner uses the Ayurvedic principles to assess and treat the patient. These assessment techniques require skills and vigorous training and experience. 

 

 

 

Ayurveda principles believe that any disease is a result of imbalance in the body doshas or three-humours and the state of energy travelling in the body. When there is a shift in the equilibrium of this state of doshas, the body becomes sick. 

 

 

 

An Ayurvedic Practitioners aims to work on the patient to stabilise the imbalance and bring the doshas back that will help the body to heal itself. So, instead of concentrating to treat an illness, Ayurvedic Doctor focuses on the techniques or tools that will help to strengthen the healthy elements inherent in one’ body, that will promote the individual to recover.

 

 

 

This Ayurvedic concept is mentioned in Ayurvedic texts as "Shabhavoparamvad", means helping the body to call upon its energy to heal itself.  Ayurvedic treatment is an essential part of supporting this concept, as sometimes body needs external help to start the process, through diet or lifestyle changes and Ayurvedic medicine. If the imbalance is significant, the body might require Panchakarma detox to cleanse the waste out of the body, so it can recover.

 

 

 

Ayurveda doesn’t promote the use of complex chemicals, which can adversely impact the body. The focus is always on restoring the natural balance of the body by correcting diet and lifestyle, using Ayurvedic herbs which may generally be considered safe and non toxic, but one should be mindful that in rare cases they may also develop adverse reactions if not taken under the supervision of a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner.

 

 

 

What are the Benefits of an Ayurvedic Consultation?

Why do you need an Ayurvedic consultation?

 

 

 

Ayurveda has been derived from two words, Ayur and VedaAyur stands for life and Veda means knowledge.

 

 

 

  Ayurveda Consultation Melbourne by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

In this Sanskrit Shloka, Acharya Sushrut, (principal contributor of Ayurveda), defines “health” as the balance and proper functioning of dosha (three body-humours), Agni (digestive fire), dhatus (vital organs), malas (excretory process), along with happiness of atma (soul), indriya (senses) and manas (mind). 

 

 

 

Ayurveda Consultation Melbourne by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

In the above sanskrit shloka, Acharya Charaka  another significant contributor of Ayurveda, defines disease. (reference Charak Samhita, Sutra sthan, chapter 9, shloka 4). He says that the discordance of the body elements like dosas, dhatus and malas is called diseases. He further mentions that the disease can also be co-related to pain (mental, emotional or physical). 

 

 

 

The word Disease itself has originated from two words Dis and Ease, means discomfort!

 

 

 

Ayurveda main goal is to firstly maintain the health of a healthy individual and secondly, to treat the illness of an unwell person.

 

 

 

If you are already enjoying good health, an Ayurveda consultation can still be beneficial to personalise your diet and your lifestyle, based on your dominant dosha and body type, age and the season. It will help you best adapt the use of herbs and spices in your life to stay healthy and guide you with the routines and treatments that enhance your personal mind-body constitution.

 

 

 

If you have been suffering from ill health for whatever reason, don’t feel disappointed; Ayurveda has the best treatment options for various health conditions. We offer you the ancient solution for modern day world problems!

 

 

 

There are umpteen health problems which may be resolved by the systematic application of Ayurvedic concepts and herbs. Ayurveda suggests that every person has their unique Ayurvedic body type and it is important to get the right consultation to get an understanding on the Ayurveda principles and which treatment pathway works for you and will suit your body.

 


How Does an Ayurvedic Doctor make Diagnosis?

 

 

 

Methods of clinical examination are described elaborately in various texts of Ayurveda. 

 

 

 

Most commonly used Ayurvedic Concept of making clinical diagnosis is called Rogi Rog Pariksha.

 

 

 

Rogi means Patient

 

Rog means Disease

 

Pariksha means method of examination

 

 

 

There is vast information on Pariksha, the technique or process, which supplies the current knowledge and status of the patient to the Ayurvedic Doctor or Physician.

 

 

 

An Ayurvedic diagnosis differs from Western medicine, as in an Ayurvedic assessment, the diagnosis is not only made on the level of the disease, but also on the level of the patient.  

 

 

 

This detailed exhaustive assessment leads the Ayurvedic Doctor to not only diagnose the disease but to customise the treatment plan to the individual, as the detailed Ayurvedic examination of the patient, will inform the Ayurvedic Doctor many aspects about the patient’s physical, mental strength, immunity, digestion and elimination etc and this will help them to prepare and choose the best possible Ayurvedic Treatment and Medicine for the patient.

 

 

 

That is why there is no set Ayurvedic Medicine for two patients with same diseases. One person with diabetes might be prescribed completely different Ayurvedic medicine to another patient with diabetes, compared to a set of hypoglycaemic in Western medicine.

 

 

 

An Ayurvedic Consultation hence, will include both Rogi and Rog Pariksha. Let’s discuss in details, what you will be expecting during an Ayurvedic consultation at Pure herbal Ayurved Clinic:

 

 

 

There are four stages of the complete Ayurveda consultation, as below:

 

 

 

Stage one of Ayurveda consultation: 

 

 

 

This is the initial stage where the Ayurvedic Doctor will follows the three basic fundamental principles of Ayurvedic clinical assessment.

 

 

 

Clinical Examination of the Patient: 

 

 

 

Ayurveda Consultation Melbourne by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

  • Darshan (Observation):  This involves general evaluation of the patient, by watching and observing the various aspects, including, body movement, posture, gait, skin colour, eye contact and colour, facial gestures, hair, nails etc and basic body physique. These observations, although seem simple, but help the Ayurvedic doctor form the basic component of evaluation of patient’s prakriti and vikriti, meaning normal body tendency and imbalance respectively.​
  • Sparshan (Touch): The Ayurvedic practitioner then employs touch, including special focus on the patient's pulse, tongue, eye etc. He/she may assess the body part for its heat or swelling etc too.​
  • Prashna (Questions): The Ayurvedic physician, asks various questions about complaints and symptoms, as well as the duration of discomfort and disease progression. The practitioner also inquires about mental and psychological conditions. This will also involve asking questions around your past history, personal history including work, job, hobbies, exercise, menstrual history for females, family history, recent travel etc.

 

 

 

Stage Two of Ayurveda consultation:

 

 

 

 

 

Ayurveda Consultation Melbourne by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

There are various forms of Ayurvedic patient assessments mention in Ayurveda texts, but most reliable and widely accepted method is the one discussed by Ayurveda guru Yog Ratnakar, in the above Shloka of his book Yogratnakar, Sutra sthan, Chapter 1, Sholka 16. He calls it Ashtavidh Rogi Pariksha, means Eight-Fold Patient Examination. The Ayurvedic Doctors at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic follow this method of Ayurvedic clinical examination. 

 

 

 

ayurvedic medicine Melbourne for pulse diagnosis by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

 

 

Nadi Pariksha (Pulse Examination): Pulse examination is carried out by reading the radial artery in the wrist. The index, middle and ring fingers of either hand are used for pulse examination. 

 

 

 

Mutra Pariksha (Examination of Urine): Ayurevedic Doctor may ask you questions related to your urine. Mutra Pariksha (urine examination) might be required in the cases where the Ayurvedic doctor is concerned about level of toxins in the patient’s body. As urine helps to eliminate the waste end products of metabolism from the body, assessment of urine might be considered significantly important to establish the characteristic of the fluid balance and nutrition. Urine assessment is based on case to case and is not mandatory in all patients. 

 

 

 

Mala Pariksha (Stool Examination): Stool examination helps the Ayurvedic physician to understand the digestion, absorption and excretion of the food. As any imbalance will lead to accumulation of toxins and will lead to disease. The Ayurvedic doctor might ask you question around the quantity, consistency, colour, smell, mucous, frequency etc of the stool. 

 

 

 

Ayurvedic medicine Melbourne for tongue diagnosis by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

Jihwa Pariksha (Tongue Examination): Different areas of the tongue correspond to different organs of the body. Hence by correlating the location of the blemishes, discolouration etc on the tongue, the Ayurvedic practitioner can determine which organs of the body are out of balance. The colour, size, shape, coating, anomalies, surface, mobility and local lesion are also examined.

 

 

 

Shabda Pariksha (Voice Examination): This examination included voice examination. Voice is considered healthy and natural when the doshas are in balance, the voice will become heavy when aggravated by kapha, cracked under pitta effect and hoarse & rough when afflicted by vata. This assessment may include auscultation of heart or gut sounds.

 

 

 

Sparsha Pariksha (Skin Examination): Skin examination may include touch, which may include palpation to assessing the state of organs and tissue. Palpation is an important clinical method for examination of skin. For example, a vata aggravated skin is course & rough, a pitta influenced one has high temperature and kapha affected becomes cold & wet. 

 

 

 

Ayurvedic medicine Melbourne for eye diagnosis by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

Drik Pariksha (Eye Examination): Eyes features of a person, may reflect the personality of the individual and health and diseased condition of an individual. For instance, vata domination makes the eyes sunken, dry and reddish brown in colour. Pitta, turn eyes red or yellow and the patient suffers from burning sensations. Where as, high kapha makes them sticky and watery, with heaviness in the eyelids. 

 

 

 

Akrti Pariksha (General appearance Examination): This includes the examination of external features of the body and concludes the rest of the clinical assessment that might be significant.

 

 

 

Stage Three of Ayurveda consultation:

 

 

 

Rog Pariksha (Diagnosis of the disease): 

 

 

 

These stages is very crucial in the clinical examination, as these help the Ayurvedic Doctor evaluate and decide the level of progression of the disease and develop the best treatment plan. There are five fundamental stages of a disease desribed by Ayurveda Contributor Vagbhatt. An expert Ayurvedic Doctor will examine the disease based on these principles.

 

 

 

Ayurveda Consultation Melbourne by Pure Herbal Ayurved

 

 

 

(Reference of Above shloka:  Ashtang Hridayam Nidaan Sthan Chapter 1, Shloka 2)

 

 

 

Nidana (Aetiological Factors): Nidana is considered as the disease causing factors. That might be one or multiple for example, diet, life style, job, work, financial problems, environmental factors like moving houses, travelling overseas and any external or internal injuries. Any of these can act as sources of any diseases which overall leads the imbalance of doshas. As this is the initial stage as per Ayurveda, nidana parivarjana or “avoiding the cause” is considered as the first line of treatment in most of the diseases. 

 

 

 

Purvarupa (Prodromal signs and Symptoms): Purva rupa considers initial sign and symptoms of disease. These symptoms may term as warning symptoms for any particular disease and appear before the other aggravated symptoms appeared. Like a person might notice changes in their sleep and appetite before a disease is established completely.

 

 

 

Rupa (Clinical Features): Rupa considers main sign and symptoms of a disease as actual manifestation process. This is a prompt and well-defined stage of disease and shows the classic signs and symptoms of disease.

 

 

 

Upashaya (Therapeautic investigations):  Many diseases having special preliminary signs and symptoms, these are the basic consideration of upashaya applied for some special type of diseases. The investigational and treatment options involve blood tests etc, use of proper diet, herbal remedies or physical therapies. Dietary changes may be recommended to confirm suspected diagnosis. 

 

 

 

Samprapti (Pathogenesis): Samprapti is the understanding the knowledge about the pathway of disease manifestation. This includes the details of the disease development stages, starting from the causes to the final stage of investigation; this approach considers role of doshas as well as location where the imbalance prompt (dooshya). This approach takes each and every stage of disease developments as tool of diagnosis and treatment. 

 

 

 

Stage Four of Ayurveda consultation:

 

 

 

This stage involves establishing the detailed treatment plan that is based on the individual clinical assessment of the patient.

 

 

 

A typical Ayurvedic Treatment plan at Pure Herbal Ayurvedic Clinic will include one or all of the following. 

 

 

 

Ayurvedic Diet Plan: Once a formal Ayurvedic diagnosis is established, the Ayurvedic Practitioner will suggest you the diet that is required to alleviate the specific dosha imbalance. This diet can be vegan, vegetarian or meat depending on the health condition or personal preference of the patient. You will get a list of food items that are beneficial for you including fruit, vegetables, grain etc that will help you to choose wisely while shopping for your groceries. Diet may also include various tastes that promote or alleviate specific dosha.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Modification Plan: Lifestyle suggestions will be based on the Ayurveda diagnosis. That could include, discussing ayurvedic way of living, for instance, time to wake up, time to eat, time to sleep, daily self-massage technique etc.

 

 

 

Yoga/exercise/meditation Plan: This may include disease specific yoga suggestions based on disease or imbalanced dosha.

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.


    archita gaindhar

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽


    Caroline Roberts

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.


    madhu !

  • Dearest Dr Gurnam, thank you many times over for your treatment I feel very balanced and cured. You have been kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable in what you do. I highly recommend Dr Gurnam and his work in Ayurveda.


    F.A.J Bakari

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.


    Dora Tsividis

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .


    Tara prasad Bhattarai

  • I’m very happy with the treatment and medication given by Dr. Saini to heal De Quervain tensosynovitis. Pain was really too bad , I couldn’t stretch my thumb or move my wrist. On my third and final day of treatment I completely forgot I had an injury on my wrist because after the second treatment I had zero pain. Thank you so much Dr.Saini.


    Suni Koshy

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.


    Deniel Condon

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!


    Ray Dempsey

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
