health

Ayurveda is one of the oldest holistic healing systems in the world. It is based on the belief that health and well-being depend on a delicate balance between mind, body and spirit.  

The basic idea of Ayurveda is that every human being consists of the five basic elements of the universe: space, air, fire, water and earth. These combine in the human body to form three life forces or energies, the so-called doshas. They control how the body and mind function.

They are Vata dosha (space and air), Pitta dosha (fire and water) and Kapha dosha (water and earth). Everyone has a unique blend of the three doshas. But one is usually stronger than the others. Each of them controls a different bodily function. It is believed that the likelihood of getting sick - and the health problems that develop - is related to the imbalance of these doshas.

herbal medicine

Plants have always been used for therapy in Ayurveda. Valuable knowledge about the uncovering of the healing powers of plants has been preserved over the millennia. This not only applies to the selection and composition of the plants, but also the right time to harvest them, their cleaning, the synergistic combination with minerals and the complex processing methods that can sometimes even take years.

An art that requires a lot of experience.

In addition to specific formulations, e.g. B. act on certain organ functions, doshas or dhatus, Ayurvedic herbal medicine knows recipes to which Ayurveda ascribes a general health-promoting, strengthening or rejuvenating effect. They also include the Rasayanas made according to traditional recipes, which according to Ayurvedic teachings are intended to preserve the original order of the organism and make it more resistant to harmful influences and are sometimes offered as nutritional supplements today.

massage

Massage is arguably the oldest and simplest medical treatment found in all cultures. In India it is said that massage is as important for the human organism as food. The body's own energies come back into their natural flow, the tissue and the muscles become elastic and loosened, the spine is straightened and the mind comes to rest.

meditation

Ayurveda, yoga and meditation are closely linked and have their common roots in ancient Indian Vedic philosophy.

Agni

According to Ayurvedic teaching, Agni actually means the god of fire. Applied to humans, Agni means the digestive fire and thus the power that has a decisive effect on our life energy, the prana.

purification

The practice of cleansing is considered a vital part of an Ayurvedic lifestyle, with great potential for improved energy, strength, and immunity, as well as a renewed love of life.

Ultimately, an Ayurvedic cleanse is focused on drawing toxins and excess vata, pitta, and kapha out of the tissues and into the digestive tract so that they can be eliminated.

food as medicine

he aim of type-appropriate nutrition is to gain new life energy with every meal and to enjoy the food with all senses in the process.

Ayurvedic nutrition can be used both to maintain health and for healing purposes. In addition to general dietary rules, the main focus is on optimally adapting the diet to the individual needs of a person. In addition to the respective Ayurvedic constitution ( Dosha ), age, digestive power, the current time of day and season as well as the state of health are also included in the dietary recommendations.

In addition to digestive strength, dosha balance also plays an important role in Ayurvedic nutrition.
In Ayurveda, certain properties are attributed to each food, drink, herb, etc. Depending on the foods, spices, preparations and flavours contained, our meals have a different effect on the three doshas and can thus be used specifically to improve the dosha balance. In this way, our diet can make a noticeable contribution to preventing diseases and delaying the ageing process.
