When you visit an ayurvedic clinic in Melbourne, the biggest change that you will feel is that there is no “one size fits all” approach in this healing methodology. Every individual is different and unique and has a specific balance/equilibrium that makes his/her systems work. And therefore, to rectify any imbalance in their body, it is important to first understand the state of equilibrium that the patient needs to achieve to regain health and wellness. This is known as understanding the patient’s prakriti.
The prakriti of the individual is also affected by the environmental factors that he/she is exposed to. This would include the geography of the region where they live, their surroundings, the weather of the region, their home environment and its condition, working habits and living space, food and water that they consume and overall state of happiness they experience. All these factors, physical as well as psychological, have an effect on the equilibrium of a person and will eventually lead them towards either an improved or declined state of health.
Dosha imbalances (your vikruti, or current condition) can manifest in various stages, from a general feeling of “something is not right” all the way to diagnosed illnesses with serious complications. To address this, Ayurveda training presents a vast toolbox of treatment modalities to choose from; but whatever the treatment, the goal is to reestablish your natural balance of vata, pitta, and kapha. Through ayurvedic herbs, lifestyle changes, habit establishment, meditation and more, this treatment modality attempts to take the patient back towards their natural state of being.
