What is Ayurveda?

The old-Indian Sanscrit term "Ayurveda" means "the knowledge of the life".
Ayurveda is considered the mother of all healing arts and is a many thousand year old comprehensive health and medicine system, which function up outstandingly until today.

The basis of ayurvedic philosphy is the science of the five elements ether (area), air, fire, water and earth, which are assigned to tree vital basic forces (Doshas) Vata, Pitta, Kapha.

Ayurveda regards human being as a unit of body, spirit and soul in interaction with the environnement and the cosmos. From nature and from birth human being has acompletly individual composition of the elements (respectively Doshas), which shape its constitution, its plants, temperament and character.

Our health and well-being depend considerably on our daily habits, our nourishment
and the fulfilment of physical and mental needs. The knowledge of life gives us an aboundance of marvelous methods, which we can use to a large extent ourselves in order to find out our own balance and so to lead a healthy and happy life.


Ayurvedical nutrition and health counselling

According to the understanding of Ayurveda, nutrition alone constitutes 80% of our health. In the difference to our western nourishment teachings concern themselves with food and its individual ingredients, Ayurveda teachings place human being into the center and orient themselves to the individual digestibleness and effect of the food on the particular.

In the holistic nutrition and health counselling various factors are considered, like constitution, digesting strength, lifestyle, occupation, age, place of residence and climate, as well as the mental and psychological condition. Because human being is, what he does digest, mean what its body makes from the food.

Ayurvedical nutrition is food for body, spirit and soul and receives the entire organism
in the equilibrium.

My holistic nutrition and health counselling is based on a detailed anamnesis to the determination of your individual constitution. Whereupon you keep its individual, detailed recommendations inclusive briefcase constructing.
