During a personalized consultation, I work with each client to analyze his or her unique ayurvedic constitution (Prakriti), determine any imbalances in the three biological rhythms or forces according to ayurveda (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), and educate clients in ayurvedic living.
Clients working with Dr. Shekhar for the first time can expect the following:
Each client fills out a health history questionnaire and self-evaluation of his or her present health condition. During an initial consultation, we discuss the questionnaire and evaluation and address any questions or concerns. I use the ancient art of ayurvedic pulse technique to detect the causes of any deep-rooted imbalances in each client’s physiology. I then educate my client on holistic ayurvedic approaches to health, with individualized guidance according to his or her constitution and any Vata, Pitta and Kapha imbalances.
In Ayurveda, by taking a pulse examination, energy imbalances such as the three Doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) can be analyzed. The ayurvedic pulse also claims to determine the balance of prana, tejas, and ojas.
Ayurvedic pulse measurement is done by placing index, middle and ring finger on the wrist. The index finger is placed below the wrist bone on the thumb side of the hand (radial styloid). This finger represents the Vata dosha. The middle finger and ring finger are placed next to the index finger and represents consequently the Pitta and Kapha doshas of the client. Pulse can be measured in the superficial, middle, and deep levels thus obtaining more information regarding energy imbalance of the client.
