Ayurvedic Health Counseling

An ancient science for modern-day living.

About Ayurvedic Health Counseling

An Ayurvedic (eye-your-vedic) Health Counselor (AHC) is an educator who can provide you with information on the Ayurvedic approach to health and wellness. Ayurveda, defined as the "science of life" or the "science of longevity", originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and remains the oldest continuously practiced healthcare system in the world. Ayurveda focuses primarily on health promotion and disease prevention through diet and lifestyle modifications.  

Ayurveda provides a framework for understanding ourselves and a road map to sustaining health through the stages of life. An Ayurvedic Health Counselor provides you with insight into your unique combination of the doshas: vata, pitta and kapha. Like the 5 elements that make up the entire universe, these doshas are made of Ether and Air (vata), Fire and Water (pitta) and Earth and Water (kapha). They govern all functions, systems and structures of the body. You posses all three doshas in varying quantities which are then expressed through your current physical, emotional and mental states. Keeping them in balance  in this modern, stressful world is the challenge.

Ayurveda celebrates you and your unique combination of these doshas and seeks to bring balance when one, two or all three become vitiated, or spoiled, and out of balance with your natural state. Seasonal eating (fresh, local and organic foods when possible) is a cornerstone of Ayurveda as well as creating good daily habits around food such as When, Where and How you eat.  

As an Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Ginger Solomon will coach and lovingly support you as you learn how to bring balance to your diet and lifestyle  using one of the main principles of Ayurveda of choosing "opposites" to create this balance. She will also help you understand how good Sleep Habits and Energy Management (using the Ayurvedic Cycle of Energy Clock) can help you achieve the harmony you desire  in your daily life.
