Ayurveda places great emphasis on the prevention of illnesses and the promotion of health. Ayurveda not only treats one’s health concerns but also suggests lifestyle practices to maintain for optimal health with an individual, personal approach. Thorough attention is given for health maintenance through state of mind, diet, and lifestyle counseling. A counselor assesses a patient and modifies their lifestyle. Patients are encouraged to proactively make healthier and beneficial choices to limit indulgences and improve one’s overall health. Motivation for change is addressed and concerns are raised about the potential barriers that challenges successful changes. Counselors directly guide a patient along the journey to commit to specific, measurable, and attainable goals with demonstrated progress through reinforcing self-monitoring to increase the patient’s awareness to maintain these changes.
