As an Ayurvedic Health Coach, my goal is to help each client reach their health objectives through a diet that is best suited to their personal body type. I use consultation and diagnostic tools to figure out their imbalances and how to help them bring their bodies back into balance. With this information, I create a plan with recommendations and dietary guidelines. Clients who have followed the plan under my guidance have overcome digestive and weight issues, dealt with stress and improved their general health and energy level.
Receiving the Food for Life Instructor training through the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine rounded out my understanding of food as medicine. With this certification, I became adept in teaching how to use a plant-based cuisine for overcoming and preventing diet-related diseases such as high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity. Marrying my knowledge of cooking, Ayurveda, and plant-based preventative medicine, I have become a plant-based nutrition expert.
During the initial consultation, Karuna will take you on a journey of self-discovery by evaluating your physical traits, vitals, diet, lifestyle, habits, tendencies, and symptoms to reveal important information about your natural dosha (Ayurvedic body-type) and the underlying imbalances that may be contributing to your symptoms. Based on her findings, she will offer dietary and herbal recommendations, Ayurvedic self-care tools, and mindfulness techniques to bring you back into natural balance to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
