The First Consultation - Initial Diagnosis
The initial diagnosis is a crucial element, which determines the direction and the steps involved in the treatment of each and every individual patient. It is essential for both patient and doctor to get to know each other and hereby establish a basis of trust.
A ayurvedic treatment consists of three steps:
Purva karma and pancha karma
Rasayana or follow-up treatment
Steps one and three (Ama pachana and Rasayana) are done by the patient at home under the guidance of Ayurveda doctor
Patient´s Advantage: Time and Cost Saving
Step 1 – Aama Pachana
Ama pachana is the preparatory phase for the body in anticipation of the actual treatment, which ensues. Toxins held within the body tissues are bound and mobilized by intake of herbal decoctions and simultaneously by following nutritional guidelines. The more thorough this phase is attended to, the more optimal the therapy results will be.
The first phase is introduced to the patient generally 14 - 28 days ahead of departure (before panchakarma) and is supervised by Ayurveda doctor.
Most people who travel to India from the west neglect this very vital stage. Generally, upon arrival at his destination, the patient finds that he lacks time to invest in the ama pachana process due to his only having a maximum of either three of four weeks of leave at his disposal. Due to this, we insist on the preparatory stage being done at home here in your home country. This consists of the vital first consultation which includes the diagnosis of patient´s problem according to Ayurvedic principles.
Furthermore, it is during the first consultation that the structure for the treatment protocol and the treatment price itself are determined. Travel data such as flight and resort information, contact persons, pick up facility upon arrival and stipulations regarding vaccinations are also given to the patient.
Step 2 – Purva and Pancha Karma
Purva karma is the name given to the medicated oil and sweating therapies. The five different types of cleansing therapies are called “Pancha karma” Depending on the individual condition of each patient, varying therapies are selected out of the pancha karma program. This second stage will take up between 14 to 45 days, depending on the chronicity of the disease.
Step 3 – Rasayana
This is the final stage of the Ayurvedic treatment, which nourishes the system, thereby building it up in the long run and ensuring maintenance of stability. Doctor will assess your needs in all the three stages of treatment. Upon return from India or from the panchakarma center, special focus may be given to the adaption to food and climate adhering to Ayurvedic principles.
