Ayurveda – Nutrition & Lifestyle Therapy

Ayurveda (known in Sanskrit as the ‘Science of Life’) is the ancient Indian philosophy of holistic health and wellbeing that originated over 5000 years ago. It is a powerful system that guides us in the art of living wisely.

It teaches us how to live life on a moment to moment basis that is in harmony with our individual nature and the environment, a way of living with insight and ease.

This natural healing system teaches us how to optimize physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and live a fulfilled life spiritually. It has great depth and leads to self knowledge and a deep understanding of the connection between every aspect of your being.

Ayurveda treats each person as unique. It takes into consideration all aspects of a person’s diet and lifestyle and the affects these have on your wellbeing.

It provides an integrated approach to the prevention and treatment of dis-ease through herbal remedies, food, massage, yoga, meditation and wise living as part of its philosophy to bring balance to your vital energies or ‘doshas’ namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

I offer 1-1 nutrition & lifestyle consultations and therapy in the art of Ayurveda.  I also offer seasonal Ayurvedic cooking & lifestyle workshops and retreats on a regular basis.

If you wish to optimise your health and vitality and to live in a harmonious way that prevents dis-ease, then you will benefit from this consultation.

If you wish to treat various chronic dis-ease naturally with herbal medicines and changes to your nutrition and lifestyle habits, then you will benefit from this therapy session.

I have experience with the following:

  • all digestive ailments – IBS, constipation, bloating, diarrhoea, acidity, ulcerative colitis
  • toxicity
  • low and depleted energy
  • allergies, congestion, sinusitis
  • colds and flue
  • impaired immunity
  • hormone imbalances, infertility, menopause
  • thyroid problems and adrenal fatigue
  • weight and skin disorders
  • arthritis and gout
  • disturbed sleep
  • headaches
  • depression, bi-polar, panic attacks, stress

The more you learn about yourself, the more equipped you are to bring balance to your body, mind and mood moment to moment.

Live a healthy, happy and fulfilling life – naturally!

 

Watching Nature Unfold

 

 

'I was desperate to improve my health and felt as though I’d run out of options. Western medicine didn’t seem to be able to help me. I was constantly exhausted, unable to cope with my workload and diagnosed with a number of viruses. For many years I had followed a 75% raw diet which had worked very well, now it wasn’t.  After Wendy assessed and guided me in Ayurvedic wisdom, nutrition and herbs, I was initially a bit resistant to a very different way of eating.  Once I attended a cooking session with her, understood how to prepare my meals and was armed with easy to prepare and tasty recipes, I enjoyed my food & my health slowly but surely improved in leaps and bounds. Another plus is I’m eating more food than I used to and have lost weight.'
