The Functional Ayurveda™ Fundamentals Start Up with MD + Health Coach Package is recommended to introduce yourself to our unique, root cause, whole person focused approach to integrative health and wellness.
75 minutes of physician time are dedicated exclusively to you and your health, which is so uncommon in today's hamster wheel world of medicine. Our Functional Ayurveda™ MD conducts a detailed review of medical history/records, along with a deep dive into the timeline of your health concerns. Often, the majority of the detective work / connecting the dots relies on a thorough history. A functional medicine physical exam and ayurvedic assessments will be done as needed, and tips combining the best of both worlds of cutting edge modern functional medicine and the ancient wisdom of ayurvedic medicine will be reviewed. Dr. Vazirani uses a combination of Medical, Functional, and Ayurvedic Assessment to determine if any comprehensive functional medicine lab testing is warranted, and in this program would order any custom test panels she deems necessary (cost of testing is between the patient and the lab testing company, and is the patient's responsibility).
Once we get functional data back from your testing, you meet with Dr. V for a results review follow up visit. At this point we can help you further customize what supplements, vitamins, or functional foods/nutraceuticals you would benefit from (or which ones may be harmful). While the focus in Functional Medicine and Ayurveda is always lifestyle, food/spices, meditation over medication first, some patients would benefit from temporary or long term supplements or lifestyle practices based on their unique health issues (such as digestive imbalances, micronutrient deficiencies, detoxification or genetic inefficiencies, for example) to help optimize their health. If any of these are determined to play a role in your health issues, you will be provided specific recommendations.
The 30-minute health coaching sessions will help you benefit from your protocols under the supervision of Dr. Vazirani. In these appointments, the board certified functional medicine health coach reviews your dietary history, discusses your goals, builds a personalized plan tailored to your needs, addresses your concerns and challenges, and supports your mindset and progress towards achieving your mind-body health goals.
These start-up sessions with the MD and Health Coach will focus on introducing you to the benefits of our unique Root Cause approach to your unique health situation using the best of Functional Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine as an adjunct to standard of care medicine, and emphasizes lifestyle, nutrition, detoxification, movement, meditation, and other integrative modalities to begin your Functional Ayurveda™ journey to help optimize your health.
