Astrology is a language of symbols that is based in classical elemental theory - air, fire, water, earth - which can be utilized as a beautiful tool for growth and development of the soul. Isabel M. Hickey, Astrologer, eloquently states, “the birth-chart indicates certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual tendencies with which the person is endowed at birth. The blueprint shows what the soul has on its spiritual ledger— the debits and credits.” The elements are energies or tendencies of behavior and even within a single element there are variations in mode of expression which demonstrates the vast uniqueness of every person. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and astrology is not used to deem something good or bad but rather seen as a spectrum of balanced or unbalanced tendencies that the native can become aware of and use for his or her evolvement.

A planetary portrait of the cosmos specific to the day, time and place you were born. The Birth Chart is a mandala or blueprint that displays your unique elemental makeup.
Looking at the dynamic of where the planets are currently moving compared to the birth chart and the interplay that can play out in your life, internally and/or externally.
Ayurveda is a medical science and healing system rooted in ancient India. Ayur- means life and -veda means knowledge. We can promote the quality and longevity of life through Ayurveda by recognizing the unique nature innate in each individual physically, mentally, and spiritually. We are not separate from our natural environment but an integral part of it because we are comprised of the same elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. The elements comprise the doshas - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha - the psycho-physiological functional principles of the body. These elements are energies that express themselves uniquely in our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies as well as in food, herbs, and medicine. According to Dr. Vasant Lad “no matter what the constitution, it is possible to achieve optimal health through proper diet, cooking methods, lifestyle and an attitude toward life that specifically suits each individual.”
Your unique body type and expression of your genetic code that is set at conception. All humans are made up of all the elements - ether, air, fire, water, earth - but what makes us each individual is the preponderance of some elements over others and the unique expression or characteristics of those elements. When we know our unique body type we can eat, emote, exercise and live life according to what works best for ourselves instead of looking outwards to try and be like someone else.

The current condition of the native reflects any disturbances in diet, lifestyle, emotions, environment and such. Vikru means “to alter” so vikruti shows the current altered state of body, mind, and spirit of the native. Our bodies are like a symphony, all of the cells, tissues, organs, glands and systems must play the right tune to maintain the harmony of health but when something is out of tune the vibration can be felt through the pulse and a remedy can be suggested to bring the body symphony back into harmony.
Personalized Nutrition recommendations
Our health is our greatest wealth so it is imperative that we be responsible for the food, thoughts and emotions we feed ourselves. A common adage is that we are what we eat, however we are really what we assimilate. If our digestive system is not functioning properly we may not be absorbing the nutrients from our food. The core beliefs I incorporate personally and with clients is a diet focused on organic, seasonal, local, and as minimally processed as possible. Food is medicine and learning to eat right for your body and mind type can help optimize your energy, correct digestive issues, hormonal irregularities and so much more.
If you are what you eat and you don't know what you're eating then how can you know who you really are?
