Your state of health can also be a wake up call if you’re not really happy with aspects of your life. The support of an Ayurvedic Practitioner can help you get back on track so that you can experience increases in energy and a greater sense of well-being.
As an Ayurvedic Practitioner, one of the main things I focus on is digestion. Good physical digestion allows us to absorb all the nutrients in our food and to build healthy tissues. When digestion is weak, then although the food we eat may be very good quality, we may not benefit as we can’t digest it. Over time, feelings of anxiety can build up if the body is not well-nourished. Diet and herbs can be used to strengthen digestion, rebuild our physical health and to support mental and emotional well being.
As well as physical digestion, we also need to consider our mental digestion. Challenging experiences (e.g loss or betrayal of loved ones) need to be digested. When we struggle to digest these experiences, our physical health may suffer. A significant part of our nervous system is in the gut, so when we are upset or angry, our physical digestion will suffer. In this way our mental and emotional well being influences our physical well being.
Diet and lifestyle advice focuses on realistic goals and sustainable changes that you can incorporate into your existing lifestyle. Ayurvedic herbs and treatments can be used to enhance healing, shift deeper issues and bring quicker results.
Consultations begin with a pulse reading to establish your current state of health. Pulse reading is best carried out on an empty stomach, so you will be asked not to eat for 3 hours before your consultation.
“The Ayurvedic diet is the easiest diet to follow: This is the first ‘diet’ I’m on where I’m not fighting with my body. I don’t have any cravings. My body is feeling happy and light.” Mona, Brighton
“Thank you, I have been following your guidance and recommendations and the results , even in such a short space of time have been amazing! I had resigned myself to always having to battle with my ‘sweet tooth’ and that there would always be times when it would get the better of me. My daughter noticed the other morning that the shopping I had bought the day before still had half a packet of chocolate covered rices cakes, that never happens.” Simon, Sussex
“I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the beginning of May this year; it was very uncomfortable to walk and my left arm and hand throbbed constantly and were extremely painful when moved. I was kept awake at night by the pain. I had my first consultation with Julie Ulbricht in the middle of May and was put on a diet which, together with different herbal remedies, had an almost immediate effect. Now, two months later, I can walk for hours without discomfort, I have no pain in my arm or hand and the hand is now restored to full movement and its strength has substantially returned.
As my mother suffered with the condition for years, I know how debilitating and life-changing this disease can be, so view the change in my circumstances as nothing short of miraculous. I feel ‘in charge’ and know that if I feel better is is because I am better, and not the result of some pain-dampening drugs that I would have to take for the rest of my life. As they say, my friends are amazed!” Marilyn, Sussex
“When I first met Julie I was having daily stomach cramps and bloating and regularly constipated (up to 8 days sometimes without a movement). Julie recommended a couple of ayurvedic remedies as well as a change in diet – with some meal suggestions, which was really helpful. My follow up was booked for 4 weeks later and by this time I had not had any of my painful abdominal symptoms for 3 weeks, and my bowel movements were regular! It’s so freeing to be able to be pain free- more time for the fun stuff:-)” Mika, Sussex
