Originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda is a natural medical system based on the idea that each individual is composed of the five elements of nature and that energetic imbalances can cause illness. Your body constitution could be one of three major Ayurvedic types: Vata (air + ether), Pitta (fire + water), or Kapha (earth + water). These elements that make up your Ayurvedic constitution determine the foods and lifestyle practices that best suit your body and create optimal health and balance. Using a questionnaire, pulse, and tongue diagnosis an Ayurvedic doctor uncovers what makes you unique, identifies areas of imbalance within your body, and offers natural therapies and lifestyle practices to help you regain balance. In a unique approach combining functional medicine and Ayurveda, Dr. Geere works on the root cause of disease with patients one on one to create a customized plan that supports their health, detoxifies their body, rebalances their gastrointestinal system and hormones helping them achieve optimal health and vitality.
