When will I notice some improvement?
It depends on each patient but most of our patients notice some improvement during the first 3 weeks of treatment.
How long will my treatment last?
There is no simple answer to this question but generally it depends on how your body reacts to the treatment. Some type of body constitutions can recover quite quickly while others need more time. Also, it depends on the type of disorder, the number of disorders you currently have and the years you have suffered from a diagnosed disease. Generally a full treatment lasts at least 6 months.
Will I have to change my diet to using Indian herbs and eating Indian food?
Not really, unless you love eating only Indian food. Even though Ayurveda was born in the Indian subcontinent, its principles are universal and they apply to all types of cuisines and foods.
Will I have to make drastic changes to my diet?
Most of our patients need to make some changes to their diet but it also depends what your current diet is now. However, if any big changes are needed, we will slowly support you get there with the help of the Ayurveda medicines/herbs and a diet plan adapted to your specific needs.
What is the difference between Ayurveda and other alternative healing systems?
The goal of our treatment is not just to improve your health but also that you learn about your own body constitution "dosha" and how to keep yourself in balance and healthy. It is an educational process of self-discovery of your own body and an empowering process. From our experience, many other forms of alternative healing systems lack this educational component and even though a patient may recover with the use of natural remedies, they haven't learned yet how to keep themselves in balance.
