A consultation session with Sarvah Ayurveda goes beyond just treatment and writing prescriptions. It focuses on deeper examining of all aspects of your life, from sleep routine to your dietary habits, your personal worries, professional space and physical activeness because we believe that understanding the root cause of ones sickness will help the individual to recover (it refers to the Ayurvedic ideal of helping the body call upon its own energy to heal).
1) Rogi-Roga Pareeksha :Â which combines disease analysis with deep examination of each individual. ThisÂ includes your personal and medical history, daily diet, sleep timings, profession and working conditions, exercise, yoga or pranayam routines, relationships, mental health, complaints and symptoms and duration of discomfort and disease progression, mental and psychological conditions.
2) Primary examination:
(i) Nadi Parikshan: or Pulse Observation is the process of listening the sounds made by the internal organs (shrvanaa), and percussion or tapping (akotana).
(ii) Darshan: It is the observing of patientâ€™s movements, body contour, colour of the skin and eyes, facial lines and ridges, shape of the nose, and qualities of the lips, hair, and nails.
(iii) Sparsha (Touch): The practitioner employs touch, including palpation (or sparshanam - pressing down on parts of the body), auscultation, which is listening for sounds made by the internal organs (shrvanaa), and percussion or tapping (akotana). There is special focus on the patient's pulse, tongue, nails, and speech. Laboratory testing is also included under this category.
