Frequently Asked Questions
What is Āyurveda?
Āyurveda is India's traditional medical system. It is a holistic approach that uses temporary dietary adjustments, lifestyle recommendations, therapeutic treatments and cleanses to restore health. It is also preventative in nature.
Health is not something that you achieve and then you're done. It must be cultivated and created each day. Āyurveda offers a wealth of sound knowledge to maintain health throughout every season and every stage of life.
I've tried changing my diet and lifestyle and it didn't work. How is Āyurveda different?
Āyurveda is a complete medical system. Āyurvedic formulations or "medicines" are selected for you based on your state of health. Formulations along with appropriate changes to your diet and lifestyle ensure that you get back to your natural state of health and are able to maintain it. Improved health cannot happen without changing your diet and lifestyle.
Why should Āyurveda be part of corporate worksite wellness programs?
Āyurveda is preventative in nature and provides sound health advice for various seasons, climates and people. It is easily customized for various groups of individuals. Unlike Western nutrition and health paradigms, Āyurveda is an entire system of knowledge that addresses all aspects of life, from the environmental and social, to the physical and spiritual. It is well suited for corporations interested in educating employees on the principles of good health.
Is Āyurveda a licensed profession?
Āyurveda is not a licensed profession in the U.S. That being said, when selecting an Āyurvedic Practitioner, it's important to choose someone that is practicing classical Āyurveda. Classical Āyurveda adheres to the framework as it is taught and practiced in India.
Jennifer Maklan, ĀP, practices classical Āyurveda and has trained in programs that exceed typical educational standards for Āyurveda in the U.S.
How is Āyurveda practiced online? Isn't pulse assessment needed?
Āyurveda is quite conducive to online practice. In classical Āyurvedic assessment, questioning and visual clues provide a wealth of information. Pulse assessment is actually a somewhat modern addition to classical assessment methods. It is not a necessary component for a quality assessment.
How is Āyurveda different than other holistic healing methods?
Āyurveda is time-tested. It's speculated to be thousands of years old and probably the oldest health system known to man. Though much has changed, the classical practice of Āyurveda holds to the time-tested methods that existed thousands of years ago.
Unlike other modern approaches to holistic medicine, Āyurveda utilizes a detailed framework for the measurement, assessment and management of health. It is an extensive practice that is studied rigorously and is effective when applied with precision.
Unlike Western approaches to care, Āyurveda is personalized to each individual. Your day, diet, health history and so much more are taken into consideration to create your Care Plan.
What if I don't see results?
Sometimes results can be seen immediately and sometimes results can be subtle but nevertheless impactful.
If you're not seeing results, it's important to speak up. This is helpful information and may indicate that the wrong remedy was selected for you. Don't hesitate to communicate your experience so we can ensure you are on the right track.
