What is Ayurvedic Consultation?

An Ayurvedic consultation is your first step to a holistic approach to good or better health.The initial consultation with Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari aims to provide an efficient health assessment with recommendations for beneficial treatment programs.

If you are already enjoying good health, an Ayurvedic consultation will teach you how to personalise your diet and your lifestyle, how to use herbs, and how to follow routines and treatments that enhance your personal mind-body constitution.

What to expect?

a natural healing center

On your arrival for the first consultation, you will require to fill a patient record form with your details, including the reasons of your visit and your health concerns (if any). There are two concepts of diagnosis in Ayurveda, namely, diagnosis of disease and diagnosis of person. We use the following assessment techniques in the diagnosis process:


Your eyes give information about your doshas, as well as your liver, gall bladder, brain functions, oxygen level in your body, and the state of toxins in your system. Your eyes are checked for colour, movement, shine, shape and moisture.


Fingernail health often indicates an imbalance of the doshas, namely, Vata, Kapha, and Pitta. We check the shape, size, colour, marks and ridges on your fingernails to read your health.


Pulse examination is done by placing the index, middle, and ring fingers at the root of the thumb of the subject.ย  Pulse diagnosis serves to assess the amplitude, temperature, movements and strength of your pulse. This gives the complete information of your dosha, heart function, endocrine system, and cell functions.


The tongue reflects the condition of all the organs and their functions. It is like the mirror to internal health. Tongue assessment is done to check its shape, coating, colour, texture and thickness. This gives information about your internal organs, such as inflammation, elimination functions, and metabolism. The level and types of coating reflect the presence of Ama (toxins).
