Dr. John Douillard, DCDr. John Douillard, DC

An Ayurvedic consultation is a comprehensive exam aimed at uncovering the root cause of what ails you. Traditionally, Ayurvedic diagnosis is made through careful listening to a detailed health history and/or a physical exam that involves evaluating the pulse and tongue. Both the health history and physical exam help to reveal underlying factors in the disease process. Instead of giving a remedy for each symptom, Dr. Douillard diagnoses the fundamental imbalance that may be responsible for all of the symptoms. Therapies may include, but are not limited to: herbs, diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, and stress prevention. The personalized strategy you will receive in your consult will simplify, harmonize and energize your life with tools that can help you reduce stress, balance weight, support moods, crave healthier foods, promote immunity, calm the mind, and enjoy more vitality. In addition to learning the tools, you will learn how to effortlessly integrate these new habits into your daily life.

Is a Phone Consultation Really as Good as In-Person? Some people wonder whether a phone consultation is really as powerful as an in-person consultation. To answer this question, it’s important to illustrate that, according to Ayurveda, the sound of a voice beyond the content of what is said can be just as informative to an experienced therapist as the pulse reading or tongue coating exam. Both Dr. Douillard and Tauna Houghton have extensive experience with phone consultations, and many patients choose to have phone consults regularly as a vital part of their health maintenance routine.

Alternative to a Consultation The Ayurveda Challenge is a 28-day self-directed online course that you do each day, at your own convenience. When you take the Ayurveda Challenge, it is like booking a month of consultations with me every day that will help you experience a reduction in many of your symptoms. I created the Ayurveda Challenge so I can help more people. In my practice, I am booked far out and cannot consult with everyone who is ready to make big changes in their lives. During each consult I have time to pass on just a few of these Ayurvedic lifestyle techniques (aka ‘challenges’). Though the Challenge costs less than an hour consultation with me, you will receive more guidelines and knowledge than I could ever give to you during one consultation. Many patients find tremendous value in completing the 28-Day Ayurveda Challenge before their initial consultation. >>> Learn more about the 28-Day Ayurveda Challenge Online eCourse
