About the Consultations
An Ayurvedic consultation includes these three following classic parts:

Dr Somit observes the different signs of good and bad health by pulsereading, looking at the tongue and throat, the eyes and continues by asking about your health and background. He will also tell you a lot about your health and bodytype from an Ayurvedic point of view. Thereafter he will predict your Prakriti and Vikriti (Body dosha in balance and its current imbalance). The consultation is concluded with a set of lifestyle and dietary recommendations, you will also receive a diet chart in which he will list the foods you should eat and the ones you should avoid.
Ayurveda is a complimentary health care with a holistic point of view and focuses on working with modern medicine. Your health is strongly affected by daily routines, diet, sleep and way of doing things; it is therefore important to regulate these things in combination with any medication or treatment you might be receiving.
