and Jeff Turner established their comprehensive health clinic, Living
Ayurveda, in 1998 to provide high quality, personalized,
compassionate, hands-on health care. They understand the
frustration that many people have experienced with the impersonal,
hurried healthcare that is all too common today. Providing
a safe, comfortable, professional environment that allows
and encourages each client to actively participate in their
own healthcare is essential to creating truly good health.
There is no standard
universal answer that works every time for any given health
issue. Cookbook algorithm-based medicine, i.e. if-you-have
this-disease-take-this-drug, simply is not effective. Unfortunately
this has become the norm.
The optimal health
solution to the health issue you are experiencing is one
that includes, as part of the that solution, the acknowledgment
that you are a unique human being, and recognizes that you
have a personal and unique predisposition to health and diseases
in specific areas. And that your response to treatment will
also be unique.
You must also be
well informed so that you may participate in the creation
of your treatment plan. We take the time to get to know you
and understand your health concerns. With that information
in hand we then we provide a great deal of education to insure
that you are informed. We encourage and in fact require your
active participation to insure that your solution is both
effective and a good match for you and your busy life. The
result is a positive and holistic approach that assists you
in attaining a happier, healthier and more harmonious life,
and truly living in harmony with your own unique nature.
Today many people
are seeing the wisdom and practicality of a more holistic
and complete approach that addresses the actual cause
of disease, rather than a narrowly focused, symptom
only, pharmaceutical intervention. We take this holistic
approach and arrive at a functional medicine solution specific
to your health issues. Functional medicine focuses on that
area between optimal health and manifested disease. Often
clients come in and say ”I’m not really sick,
but something is not right” and then go on to describe
a number of symptoms such as the ones listed below. It is
in this area of functional health that we have the opportunity
to detect imbalances early on and introduce preemptive corrective
measures to bring the body back to health before actual disease
occurs. This is the area where we focus our work and it is
There are two major
factors that determine if disease arises;
choices we make everyday.
For years medical
science has held that our genetic disposition is fixed and
unchangeable . Recent research
clearly demonstrates that choices can greatly influence and
even modify our genetic code! (This is an amazing study
showing how changes in diet and lifestyle radically decreases
the incidence of diabetes in genetically diabetic-prone mammals.)
Our choices about food, lifestyle, stress levels, hormones
lifestyle choices, the choices we make everyday, create genetic
Our daily choices
can either reinforce or counter our genetic tendencies, for
better or worse. For example, a person may have a family
history of heart disease, or a personal history of lung illness.
Their daily choices will either encourage heart issues to
arise, or not, and influence whether lung problems continue,
or not. We absolutely have a choice in determining
our level of health.
How do we make better
choices? We all want better health, but the question of how
to get there can be a quandary. This is the most often asked
questions we hear is, “Is (you fill in the blank) good?”, “Is vitamin
C good?”, “Is this diet good?”, “Is running good?” We
hear this everyday. And of course the actual question people
are asking, Is it good for me? And the “me” in
this question is important because the answer is unique and
personal to each person. What may be good for one person
will not necessarily be appropriate for another. So how does
one know if something is specifically appropriate for them?
provides the answers!
a medical system originating from India that has been in
continuous practice for more than 5000 years. While a very
old system, it provides a fresh perspective to today’s
challenging health issues. In India, Ayurveda is a 7-8 year
university degreed medical program with the same major areas
of study as that our of modern medicine schools. Ayurveda
will soon be a licensed medical profession here in the US.
A significant distinction between the two is that the focus
of Ayurveda is maintaining good health. It is preventative
medicine with the emphasis on early detection and taking
action before disease occurs.
We all know that
we are each different, we are unique. We each have a unique
makeup, i.e. physical build, mental intellect and emotional
bent. This is the consequence of our genetic constitution.
Common sense tells us that with all our unique differences,
our solutions to health issues must be unique. Ayurveda provides
a structure and method to identify your unique nature, your
genetic constitution. With this information we then create
health solutions that are personally specific to you. This
personal solution addresses your specific situation and we
include guidance and education so that through your better
choices you experience the return of vitality and achieve
optimal health. Additionally, this Ayurvedic process corrects
imbalances in the body and removes the actual
cause of disease instead of just treating symptoms.
And since the solution is your personal solution, the only
side effects are good health!
We also integrate
modern medical diagnostic testing, blood tests, hormone panels
and Applied Kinesiology with
Ayurveda to provide a truly comprehensive, “ancient
wisdom / modern science” solution. We are very excited
to add electronic body composition testing as one of our
medical diagnostic tools.
Our clients have
found our expertise and their personal involvement to be
a winning combination in resolving a wide range of health
and blood sugar issues
and allergy problems
control, vitality and endurance
toxicity and skin care
poor sleep and premature aging
structural, joint and muscle pain
and bladder weakness
and emotional imbalances
asthma and lung disturbances
