The Ayurvedic philosophy and diagnostic approach to healing is multi-faceted and holistic. 

The first step in healing is to understand, and become aligned with, your Prakriti or unique constitution. 

If you live in harmony with your body’s natural rhythms and strengths, imbalance and dis-ease cannot thrive.


Together with your Ayurvedic Practitioner, you will identify your Prakriti and then also your Vikriti, or current state of imbalance.

To pacify your Vikriti and eliminate symptoms, in collaboration with your Ayurvedic Practitioner, three steps will occur as part of your healing journey:

  1. Identification and removal of the root cause or starting place of your symptoms. 

  2. Learning to balance and sync your visceral or key internal systems – your digestion and appetite, elimination systems, nervous system and your sleep routine. 

  3. Lastly, you will learn to live in harmony with your Prakriti or natural constitution. Your Ayurvedic Practitioner with explicitly outline which foods, lifestyle choices, routines and conditions best suit you as a unique individual to thrive and flourish at any age, throughout your life.




As part of your initial consultation at The Sattva Centre, we will work together to establish key strategies and a detailed treatment recommendation plan in moving forward with your recovery. Your initial appointment will be approximately one hour in length.

Your consultation with an Ayurvedic Practitioner will include:

  • An explanation of Ayurvedic origin, science and philosophy.

  • Establishing both your Prakriti (natural constitution) and Vikriti (current state of health imbalance) through discussion, analysis and questioning.

  • Establishing medical history, family history, past health issues and any current medications.

  • A systemic examination.

  • Daily dietary intake analysis.

  • Discussion about your current emotions and the mind.

  • Establishing any Ama (toxins) that may be in the body.


A subsequent follow up consultation is often required to review treatment plans and administer both external and herbal treatments if needed.
