**11-4-12** Hey All! I’m taking a break from Full Bloom consultations due to my current work and home schedule. However, I can still squeeze in mini-buds if we schedule far enough in advance. I will let you know when I’m up and running for full consultations again. In the meantime, keep asking questions and I’ll do my best to answer them all! xoxo, Monica
It’s great to read about Ayurveda in the broad sense of how nature influences our well being. And it’s great to know what the doshas are and what qualities they bring to each of us. But, what I get asked all the time is, “Ok but, what about me?” It’s a beautiful question because Ayurveda’s foundation focuses on the unique qualities of each individual. In order to uncover where your imbalances may stem from, we need to talk about you. A lot. Therapies may differ from person to person so the goal is to find out who you are. In contrast to western medicine, Ayurveda does not simply treat disease, it gets to the root and treats the individual as a whole. So get ready because IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU!
WHAT TO EXPECT. During our Full Bloom consultation, we will talk in depth (2 hours) about you! I always start with an explanation of the principles of Ayurveda so my clients have the basic knowledge they can carry with them forever. Then we will identify your individual prakruti (natural balanced state) and your vikruti (any imbalances). Together we will go into detail about your daily schedule, nutrition, digestion, exercise, stress levels, work life, relationships, emotions, etc., I do an analysis of your entire life to see what might be throwing you off balance. Based on my analysis, I will advise changes based on the principles of Ayurveda to bring you back to your prakruti, your natural balance.
One month after the initial 2-hour session, we will have one follow-up visit. Some imbalances are corrected easily and others will take more time, although it will depend on the person and the imbalance.

It’s not always necessary to do a Full Bloom consultation. Ayurveda has plenty of tips to get you feeling better quickly.

And, I am not a doctor! Nope. I’m totally not and I have no medical background. I am an Ayurvedic Practitioner who offers lifestyle and nutritional coaching based on the principles of Ayurveda. I look forward to offering more therapies and healing modalities as my education in Ayurveda continues. I’ve already helped many clients improve their health through lifestyle and nutritional coaching alone, which is the root of where all healing begins.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
I have been battling IBS for 10 years and was willing to try anything. When I heard about an alternative way to dealing with IBS other than medication I was all for it! I took the personality test, kept track of my eating habits, and talked with Monica extensively about my life. She gave me slight changes to start with in my diet, way of thinking, and awareness of what I was doing to my body. Neither Monica nor I imagined that after the first week I would feel as good as I did. couldn’t believe the difference and couldn’t wait to continue. It’s been almost 2 months now and I’m feeling great. The bloating, diarrhea, and constant cramping are a thing of the past. Monica and her positive attitude changed my life!!! – H.L., Plymouth, Wisconsin
Monica Bloom’s understanding of Ayurveda and the simplicity in which she applies it’s healing wonders is surpassed only by the love in which she cares for the well being of everyones lives she touches. Since working with Monica I have experienced a profound balance in my life. My mind, body and spirit were realized through HeyMonicaB! – S.R., Los Angeles, California
After changing my eating habits to fit more in line with my Ayurvedic constitution, I immediately felt a difference in my concentration and energy. Along with an increase in mental clarity, my chronic allergies were put to ease and I was more relaxed and less anxious. - P.C., San Mateo, California
Four of us in our office caught a horrible flu virus (gastroenteritis). I will spare the details but even once we were back on our feet none of us had much of an appetite. We had stomach cramps that worsened after eating. Digesting lunch took forever and was accompanied with bloating, gas, cramping, burping and discomfort. Monica, who also caught this flu, suggested we drink lassis. She made us lassis with ingredients we found in our office kitchen: plain yogurt, water, ground ginger, honey, and cinnamon. We all drank our lassis and burped and burped. A couple hours later it felt like she “un-clogged” us of that heavy indigestion feeling. The next morning we were all in tip top shape. I am going to stock up so I can make my own lassis. Excellent and easy to make a natural remedy. Who knew it was that easy! – O. Crovetto, Los Angeles, CA
Monica is AMAZING!
Honestly, I could say a million great things about Monica. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and she’s just an incredible person in general. If you have the chance to spend time with her, no matter what your situation is, just do it. She’s kind, thoughtful, smart, and positive. And she will change your life, too, if you let her. Thank you, Monica B! – S. Johnson, Los Angeles, CA
Monica listens to what’s going on in your life and your heart, and offers doable suggestions for positive change. She asked me questions I should have been asking myself a long time ago. Her approach is fun, her methods are sustainable and I’ve been able to implement changes into my day that have proven to be significant for me. ~ Caren Magill, Los Angeles, CA
