How to make the most of your Ayurvedic Consultation with your doctor?
Instead of saying staring with your diagnosis, talk more about the symptoms you want to improve.
The first consultation is the most important and foundational in your healing. Try to be as open, and honest as possible. Avoid telling your self-diagnosis, but rather explain your symptoms.
When you walk in with a diagnosis, it may hamper the doctors thought process in looking at the situation from a fresh mindset.
Try to explain your habits as vividly as possible.
Like, if you are used to 4-5 cups of tea, you may get withdrawal headaches during the treatment. If the doctors are aware. They will substitute it with the right herbal tea. Knowing about your habits helps the doctor understand where your conditions are coming from, and keep you in the right frame of mind to change the habits that are not good for you.
When you communicate about your conditions, please prioritise the ones you wish to improve upon.
If you have a skin condition, sleep issues and pain in your body at the same time, do mention which is causing the most interference in your life and what symptoms you want to improve first. This can help the doctor in customising the treatment accordingly.
Continue speaking to your doctor throughout your stay at Sitaram Beach Retreat.
Meet your doctor every day. This helps us track the progress and make amends accordingly. The more you communicate with your doctor, the more we will be able to support you in every aspect of your healing.
Share your emotional concerns.
Your mental state may be affecting your body. Our emotions have a huge impact on the energy levels in the human body. That’s why we emphasise sharing what exactly is happening in your mindset.
What to expect during your final consultation at the Sitaram Beach retreat?
If you wish to, we can give medicines that can help you sustain your health post-panchakarma. These medicines can help smooth your transition to normal food and other lifestyles. We can also give some DIY formulations to continue at home.
Please keep in mind, that our medicines are prepared with a lot of care and handwork. If you feel that you will not be able to continue the practice or use the medicines regularly, Kew requests you to kindly refrain from buying medicines.
