At Ayurveda Lifestyle we encourage patients to make sustainable life-long changes to the way they live their lives in order to maximise their health potential. It can take a while for these changes to become established and we therefore offer ongoing support to all our patients. We begin the consultation process by sending you a health history questionnaire along with an introductory booklet which which explains the basic principles of Ayurveda. The form is completed and returned prior to the consultation. Having read the booklet, patients find it easier to participate more fully in the consultation process. An initial consultation lasts around 90 minutes and includes:
Review of your health history and any current medications
Discussion of your main health concerns and symptoms
Diagnosis of your original and current constitution
Eight step Ayurvedic examination including pulse and tongue diagnosis
Review of blood pressure and heart rate
In-depth review of current diet and lifestyle
Ayurvedic interpretation of your current condition
Discussion of recommendations
Following this consultation patients receive a detailed, written treatment plan together with customised herbal formulations when necessary. Our herbs are organically and ethically produced. A follow up consultation is usually necessary 2 to 6 weeks after the initial consultation; follow ups take around 45 minutes. Throughout this period and beyond patients are encouraged to keep in touch to report progress and raise any queries that arise.
Initial Consultation (approx 90 minutes) £70.00
Follow up Consultation (Approx 45 minutes) £45.00
Concessions receive a £5.00 discount.
Consultation fees are due at the time of booking. The cost of herbal formulations and food supplements are charged in addition to these fees.
*"When I saw Sharon for the first time, I had a list of problems such as skin rash (which then turned out to be Lupus), nasal congestion, lack of sleep, anxiety and restlessness. I was tired of doctors being so superficial about my symptoms and trying different medicines that cost me money, worsened my symptoms and increased my frustration and anxiety. Meeting Sharon was like coming out of a long dark tunnel. Let’s say that she does not give you the solution to your problem but she puts you in the condition to solve your problems, giving you the chance of being aware of your body and your life. Through a detailed process I started to know my body, feel the changes and adjust my habits accordingly. Sadly, most of us lead a life that takes us here and there and we run like hamsters in a wheel, forgetting the simple staples of life, as simple as BREATHING! Sharon was very strict with me; she gave me a very detailed programme that I found very difficult to follow at first, especially from the dietary point of view. Now I have made this programme my way of life, I embraced it because it changed my life for the better. I feel so much calmer, happier, my nasal congestion has disappeared and Sharon gave me important tips to keep my Lupus quiet. Everyone should try Ayurveda and meet Sharon. They will change your life. Thanks Sharon!"
