This ancient system of holistic healing originated in India. The name is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) andveda (knowledge). In Ayurveda the main aim is to balance the physical, spiritual and psychological areas – as it is considered that when a person is out of balance illness can result. Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space are the five elements comprising the body in Ayurveda and the body, mind, and spirit/consciousness need to be addressed both individually and in unison for health to ensue.
I have trained extensively in India and the UK in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine. I have been in practice since 1998 and work as a general practitioner treating a broad range of conditions. However, I specialise in treating skin problems, women’s health and digestive disorders.
Practising herbal medicine is a great honour for me. To be able to enter into a wholesome healing relationship with my patients and to utilise the powerful effects of natural plant medicines is my life’s work. The depth of wisdom that is contained in the traditional medical systems of Ayurveda, Chinese medicine and our own European herbal practice is a continual inspiration. The ability of many of my patients to address the underlying problems with their health and to flourish into rejuvenated people is a joy to see.
