When it comes to healing, it can be mighty fine to have three things:
- A base of knowledge
- A witness to “hold space”
- And a goal to aim for
Ayurveda offers inputs from the natural world like herbs, sunshine, moonlight, and oil massage. These inputs jump-start a natural healing process within us.
The goal of Ayurvedic practice is to avoid things that cause imbalances in the first place and seasonally clean up the imbalances that happen anyway from weather changes, ‘slips’ from our usual healthy eating, stress, and environmental factors outside our control.
We believe the body is always trying to re-set itself at a healing vibration and so our aim is to support that natural process, not to prop us up with outside supplementation forever.
Something innate in human beings knows how to do this self-healing.
When we fall down and scrape a knee we don’t take lessons in how to knit the skin back together, it just happens!
But the wound feels less painful, avoids infection and looks smoother when finished healing if a thoughtful caregiver shows us how to clean and dress the scrape, directs us to rest awhile, and later feeds us something healing to eat or drink. Right?
If you have come to this website in search of care, witness and support you will find it — in a style influenced by my particular strengths and interests, and led by Ayurvedic Science.

It can take some time to understand, implement an Ayurvedic course of action
I’ve put together some information products (eBooks, audio files) to help share practical & accurate knowledge based on my 20 years’ distillation of Ayurvedic living, and training from many esteemed East Indian Ayurvedic clinicians, mostly in an orthodox lineage of practice.
I work with patients in “packages” of multiple session visits across several months, based on my experience helping people like you over the last number of years to get the health outcomes you want and need. On occasion I will agree to meet for a single Consultation session, usually to give a second opinion on your case already under Ayurvedic management.
And/ or get to know me better by signing up for the mostly monthly eNewsletter I send.
It includes reminders of the Ayurvedic living tips I share with my patients in Consultations, as well as my thoughts on modern living of this ancient wisdom. I often send out a meal recipe, too.
Feel free to email me now about your specific questions or health concerns at Victoria [at] Ayurveda-Healthcare [dot] com, and I will respond within 48 hours.Since March 2020, all Consults happen over video conference call software. Store & one-Session Scheduler
