A term that combines the sanskrit word Ayurveda, the knowledge of life, and Arizona, which is where we ultimately decided to set down our roots. Ayurveda is an ancient system of healing and prolonging life by restoring balance in key lifestyle areas such as diet, sleep, exercise, and relationships.

Dr. Thanki eats, breathes, and lives in the authenticity of ayurvedic medicine. Her deep understanding of ayurvedic principles informs the journey of discovery that she shepherds her patients through.

Which of these Dosha imbalances sounds the most like you?
"I'm feeling so scattered"
"I'm a hot-headed mess"
"I've weighted too long.."
My day begins but internally I can’t help but feel the windy city within as it swirls around through each and every one of my cells. I try to ground myself, as I grasp for each thought like the clouds that float by.
I tend to reach for tall salads and ice-cold drinks, on the run, if I don't forget to to stop for food entirely.
As the night wears on, I toss and turn, usually awakening very early, feeling unrested and weightless.
I feel a hot desert sun that penetrates my every pore and builds in pressure from the bottom of my feet to the top of my head like a steam engine.
If I could scream out loud, I might say ‘everyone clear out, I got this under control’ It scares me to know how angry and hot-headed I can really get.
I find myself craving spicy foods, alcohol, and I sometimes suffer from "heart burn" and skin conditions.
I feel stuck, sticky, slow, muddy, and heavy. I know I should be exercising but I just don't have the motivation. I seem to put off everything until tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes.
I can't seem to get out of bed before 9 am. My thoughts remain stuck and rarely manifest into action.
I'm hopelessly addicted to sweets, cakes, cookies, ice cream and all of those creamy sauces.

What Our Patients Say
"Health is Happiness - Ayurveda and Dr. Thanki have brought my Health and Happiness back!"
"Panchakarma at AyurZona was one of the best things I have done for myself. I would recommend everyone to at least try this once. I felt rejuvenated and energized as well as had an increased clarity of mind. I'm very thankful for having had the privilege of working with Dr. Meghana Thanki and her phenomenal expertise and treatments. I would recommend her to anyone."
"It is a privilege and a blessing to be in your care. Ayurzona has been my safe haven to heal, a warm and safe space for me to share my challenges openly and honestly with no judgement, and so many things about my experience embody a feeling of home and family. Everyone who has been involved in my care has shown me kindness, compassion, respect and support during times when I needed it most."
"I am amazed by the incredible power of natural healing through Ayurveda. Having come to you initially with some very serious addictions I am pleased at the progress we have made in transforming my lifestyle. I have been drug and smoke free for over a year now and have every reason to believe these are life-long changes. You have given me invaluable tools and guiding principles that have been instrumental in creating a new way of life that is nourishing and sustaining. For so many years I was looking for something outside of myself to give me what I have had within me all along. We have come a long way, but I also feel like this is just the beginning and I look forward to the many years to come, including a continuation of your guidance and wisdom."
