Treat the person, not the disease
Treat the root cause, not the symptoms

Aum Ayurveda

Ayurveda – its literal translation being ‘Knowledge of life’, offers a rich comprehensive outlook to living a healthy life, keeping ailments at bay and promoting longevity.

Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements: Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Ether. These elements are represented in humans by three ‘Doshas’, or Energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha

When any of the Doshas accumulate in the body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting the right balance of the three Doshas (Tridoshas). Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to help individuals reduce the excess Dosha and bring about balance

At AUM Ayurveda, we follow these principles of Ayurveda and in doing so aim to treat the person Not the disease, we aim to treat the body of the root cause of the disease rather than be symptomatic.

We do this through deep diving into each individual’s constitution and the root cause of their ailment/s in order to provide a holistic plan that encompasses diet and lifestyle regimes, herbal medications and detoxification massages in order to bring harmony and balance to your body. We also focus on preventative treatments in order to discourage the onset of any ailments that are lurking under the surface.

Our bodies are quite magical if you really think about how it functions. It has an intelligence beyond our conscious imagination. Alas we do not listen to it!

At AUM Ayurveda we aim to help you ignite your own body’s intelligence which in turn will guide you to have balance and wellbeing in your life.

A Note from Veronica

Ayurvedic Practitioner, Melbourne

I’ve always been interested in people and their wellbeing. For most part of my career so far, I have spent in the corporate world – leading teams, coaching staff and motivating everyone and in return being motivated to do the best and become the best version of myself / themselves.

And whilst that was an illustrious time for me, in terms of career, I knew there was something more, something different  for me to do. I didn’t know what that was, but I strongly believed that something, the right thing would manifest when the time was right.

In 2011 I was diagnosed with cancer, it came from nowhere and this is when I started looking at myself and taking deep dive into everything – what I ate and what I did and how I reacted  and what got my ‘goat’  so to speak. Thanks to the beautiful people at Peter Mac and the support from my family friends and employer at the time, I was cured and have remained cancer free since.

During that time, I started researching diet and nutrition, I went back to the principles of diet and lifestyle that we were used to when growing up in India,  following regimes that I learned from my parents. I got into Yoga, Mantra chanting and meditation. Did all this also help in my treatment? – Yes, Absolutely, but more importantly all this that was happening was guiding me in a certain direction in life.

I finally found my calling in life … Ayurveda!

Ayurveda is not just a system of medicine, it is a complete philosophy of life. My very first patient was my 85 year old Mum, who I had the opportunity to look after for the last 7 months of her life, she suffered mainly from chronic rheumatoid arthritis. Through diet, Ayurvedic herbal medications and daily body treatments, she was certainly able to keep the pain at bay and improve her overall health. I am so glad that I had this  opportunity to look after her and I know she would be extremely proud of me. Alas she is no  longer with us today , but she will always be in my heart and I in hers.

In ending, I want to say that I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to learn this beautiful and loving science of health and wellbeing. My primary focus will be   gut health, diet and nutrition, musculoskeletal issues, skin and  immunity and I am so very excited to be of service to you through Ayurveda.

Diet & Lifestyle

Ayurveda says if your food is right medicine is of no need. If your food is wrong, medicine is of no use.

So much wisdom and so much sense!

We hear so much today about the gut being our 2nd brain, how the bacteria in our gut and the food that we eat can affect our moods. There are a plethora of books talking about the mind – gut connection, the importance of gut health and this has led to a whole separate branch of study called enteric nervous system. In Ayurveda though food and more importantly digestion as well as lifestyle have always been the cornerstones of living a healthy and well balanced life. Remember – achieving good health is a journey and an ongoing process rather than a destination.

Generally speaking Ayurveda recommends a diet which is balanced in all six tastes. They are sweet, sour, salty spicy, bitter and astringent. A diet which is balanced in all six will naturally include all nutrients necessary and would not make us feel unnecessarily unsatisfied or create a craving for certain taste all the time. Giving into cravings is what then creates imbalances, depletions and takes away your vitality.

Routines hold equal importance. Ayurveda has a system of daily and seasonal living (Chariya), known as Din Chariya and Ritucharya. Following these Ayurvedic practices will ensure that your body acclimatizes to the different seasons of the year, thereby ensuring your body homeostasis doesn’t get altered, thus keeping it in a balanced and in a vibrant state all the time.

As your Ayurvedic practitioner, I would love to guide you in understanding what foods you need to eat and what you need to avoid. I would also assist in tailoring a personalised routine for you so that you can not only keep imbalance at bay but also live a life full of energy and vigour.

Know Your Body Type

While it is always most accurate to be fully evaluated by a trained Ayurvedic practitioner, completing the following questionnaire can give you an insight into the balance of energies unique to your body. And I don’t have to say this ‘be true to yourself. Remember there is no is no one judging you!

I guess a chat with me would be the best starting point to discuss what you want to achieve in terms of your health.

  • More than anything else – humility and gratitude to have the opportunity to help you achieve the best health that you can achieve.

  • A deep dive into understanding your current state of health, your Prakruti and your Vikruti.

  • Drawing a connection between the root causes of your illness with your diet, lifestyle, the work you do, sleeping habits, water consumption and even thought processing.

  • Tongue Analysis and Eye Diagnosis.

  • A holistic plan that involves what to eat and what to avoid, routines to follow, perhaps some Ayurvedic medications that you need to take as well as Ayurvedic massages to detoxify, to improve circulation etc if needed.

Let me end with the this quote from Jim Rohn

“You need to take care of your body, it’s the only place you live in”
