During my Ayurveda consultations, I often hear, "It's ok, it's only stress." "I can handle it." Whether stress manifests as anxiety, high blood pressure, poor sleep or insomnia, panic attacks, and on the list goes--it is not ok. How stress affects your health, is significant.*
Stress erodes our wellbeing and may have devastating health consequences. Our nationwide stress is at a high. Nearly half of all Americans report being awake at night.** Seventy-five to ninety percent of doctor visits are for stress-related illnesses. ***
Stress is up. Most Americans are suffering from moderate to high stress, with 44 percent reporting that their stress levels have increased over the past five years. *
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) declared stress a hazard of the workplace. Stress costs American industry more than $300 billion annually. The lifetime prevalence of an emotional disorder is more than 50%, often due to chronic, untreated stress reactions.***
I have known Jim for a long time, and when he came to me for his Ayurveda Consultation, he was clearly suffering and the stress and anxiety he was experiencing, was unremitting and causing his health to deteriorate before our eyes. Please read Jim's story below.
Unremitting and Deteriorating Health –No More!
“I have known Veena for close to twenty years. Over the years, I have sought her Ayurvedic counsel to improve my state of well-being and when I was struggling with significant, unremitting and deteriorating health issues. Her Ayurvedic treatment was always extremely beneficial.
She has amazing gifts to share and people should know that.
Veena is a great listener whose subtle, penetrating questions effectively bring forward important information. She is also extremely intuitive.
I appreciate her collaborative approach as it results in a multimodality Ayurveda plan tailored to my unique symptoms, needs, schedule, and goals.
Veena stays personally engaged, tracking changes and adjusting for as long as it takes to accomplish maximum healing and health. She is a true healer. I enthusiastically recommend Veena, without hesitation.”

If you experience stress or anxiety, or other issues, Ayurveda provides support. Chronic stress and anxiety is not something we do well to muscle through, or to minimize it as "it's just stress." It has a profound influence on our sense of wellbeing and our wellness.
We are here to support you.
