“Ayurveda is a science of holistic health. It originated in India over 5,000 years ago in a state of meditation and is strongly based on observation of nature. The main focus of ayurveda is rejuvenation and anti-aging. The ayurvedic practitioner considers the whole person, rather than focusing only on specific imbalances. Each of us is a unique combination of three doshas, or constitutions, called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. As an ayurvedic practitioner, I assess the genetic constitution and the present state of the doshas. Herbs along with other modalities help bring balance to the life-long imbalances created by changes in seasons, life events, food, sleep issues, stresses and work.”
Yael Steinfeld’s practice consists of an integration of Western & Eastern approaches to health care. She is a Registered Nurse Practitioner (RNP) with a master’s degree from The Ohio State University. Her certified Ayurvedic Practitioner degree is from the American University of Complementary Medicine (AUCM) in Los Angeles, and her level II Ayurvedic Practitioner degree is from Kerala Institute. Yael has worked in healthcare since the early 1980s, primarily as a nurse in The Ohio State University Intensive Care unit; and later, as an RNP at Kaiser Permanente. While studying ayurveda, she worked with Wound Technology Network (WTN). The beauty of ayurveda is in its personal approach and deep understanding of early stages of imbalances. When Western medicine 'waits' for more symptoms, ayurvedic medicine is already able to treat the early imbalances and promote optimal health. The ayurvedic herbs and special food and lifestyle counseling are the first steps towards health. Other ayurvedic tools include meditation, pranayama and yoga, as well as herbal oil treatments to bring peace and clarity.
