Balance in Body and Mind - Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient medicine that originated in India and has a deep understanding of the human being as a unique combination of body, mind and spirit.


The core principle of Ayurveda is to maintain the balance between the three fundamental energies known as doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These doshas are responsible for various functions in the body and play a crucial role in determining a person's physical, mental and emotional characteristics.


According to Ayurveda, disease is caused by an imbalance in the doshas, and the goal of Ayurvedic treatment is to correct this imbalance and restore natural balance. This is achieved by adapting diet, lifestyle, herbal medicine and exercise to the individual, depending on their unique constitution and current imbalance.


Ayurveda also emphasizes prevention as an essential aspect of healthcare. It aims to maintain health through a balanced diet, regular exercise and the practice of meditation and yoga to promote inner harmony.

In addition, herbal medicines are used to treat specific conditions and cleanse the body of built-up toxins.


The Ayurveda approach recognizes the close connection between man and his environment. It states that an individual's health is influenced by seasonal changes, climatic conditions and social interactions. By taking all these factors into account, Ayurveda aims to promote well-being at all levels of human existence.
