Zanjabee Difference - Blending Eastern & Western Knowledge with Technology
During the one hour Zanjabee Ayurveda intake, we listen to your problems as you experience them, in your own words. All factors – diet, lifestyle, sleep, bowel movement and stressors – that affect your quality of life and health, are assessed in great detail. The questionnaire and Ayurvedic pulse reading provide vital clues to your unique bodytype. Our Ayurvedic expert uses all these inputs to develop a customized Ayurveda diet, lifestyle and herb plan to address your needs. The weekly practitioner team meetings at Zanjabee ensure collaboration between Eastern wisdom and modern medicine technology, to deliver the least invasive and most effective evidence-based solutions for you.
An Ayurvedic consult at Zanjabee not only helps you understand yourself better, but also the energies and elemental disposition of people around you. Every visit increasingly empowers you to strike the right balance between your unique core energies and energies of the nature around. We are here to collaborate with you in your journey towards wholesome and long lasting health.

I tried several over the counter remedies without success and desperately wanted to avoid hormone replacement therapy if possible. I attended an inservice at Winchester Hospital about complementary therapies. I made a consultation appointment with Dr. Shah, the Ayurveda practitioner at Zanjabee.

I never thought that I would finally feel good again until I came to Zanjabee…”
