Ms. Āyurjyotiṣta's Approach to Wellbeing
Holistic care is essential in achieving optimal health.
Using a mix of ancient and modern knowledge, I will teach you how to achieve and sustain a healthy equilibrium on multiple levels - physically, emotionally & spiritually.
The three modalities that I draw upon are Classical Āyurveda, Jyotiṣh (Vedic Astrology) & Holistic Nursing. Below, I have included a little write up for each of these aforementioned methods of healthcare.

Āyurveda understands the human organism at a very rich & in-depth level. This ancient and complex science phenomenologically applies the laws of nature to alleviate suffering, restore and rejuvenate the body's strength, and maintain overall well-being.
Āyurveda is an individualized medicine; it recognizes that humans are unique beings. Since its creation, thousands of years ago, Āyurveda has emphasized the importance of preventative medicine. Planning for svastha (or health) over the course of one's lifetime is an area in which Āyurveda prevails.
It is a comprehensive science that is not limited to preventative healthcare only. Classical Āyurveda follows the Bṛhat Trayī (Caraka Saṁhitā, Suśruta Saṁhitā, & Aṣṭāñga Hṛdayam) within which there are extensive treatment protocols for disease.
Firsthand, I have seen the efficacy of Āyurveda in its successful managment of many chronic diseases processes.
Nursing is in my bloodline as a third generation nurse. Currently, I am pursuing my doctorate to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. I love the opportunity that this provides in terms of working with a diversity of patients from the neonate to the geriatric, the healthy to the palliative care, and across all races, ethnicities, genders and religions.
Throughout all my client assessments, I evaluate past medical histories, diagnostic exams, lab values, and am constantly collaborating with MDs and specialists in order to achieve optimal health for my patient's care.
For nearly a decade, I have been and continue to be an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Registered Nurse. As of more recently, I have also begun working in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit as well, recovering patients post-operatively from surgery. My clinical background is one which I draw upon heavily and am proud of as well.
The ātma (or soul) chooses to incarnate at our time of birth & to our specific parents in order to exhaust karmas from previous lifetimes. We continue through these cycles of birth, life, death, and rebirth until we free ourselves of the guṇas rajas (desires, greed, etc) & tamas (attachment, delusions, etc.).
Our tendency to be more sattvic, rajasic, or tamasic and the sūkṣma bhūtas (5 subtle elements) is carried within our karmic transcript (the pañcāṅga). The "sūkṣma bhūtas" correlate with the planets on a causal level, and, thus the time that our ātma (soul) incarnates is a snapshot of these karmas that our soul elects to "work out" in this lifetime. A skilled Vedic Astrologer can assess a person's birth chart for their physiolgical and psychological make up. Via the birthchart, one can ascertain many things such as areas of the body that may need strengthening or periods in life that may present health challenges. There are karmic remedies that can be done to alleviate these situations if present.
