About Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a medical science and its purpose is to heal and to maintain the quality and longevity of life. It is an art of daily living that has evolved from practical, philosophical and spiritual illumination, rooted in the understanding of Creation. It offers a profound understanding of each person’s unique body, mind, and consciousness, which is the foundation of health and happiness.

- Dr. Vasant Lad

Ayurveda - tools for a balanced way of living

Ayurveda offers healthy people tools to a balanced way of  living. It also supports people who suffer from illness and disease so they may become healthy and balanced once again. To achieve this, ayurveda teaches the science of life with comprehensive technical knowledge of themes such as nutrition, lifestyle, herbalism, and treatments. Ayurveda implies self-awareness and is an insight-oriented science that includes philosophical aspects and aims to create human happiness, health, and creativity.

A holistic science for bio-engineering our health

As ayurveda is a holistic system in which body, mind, and soul are inseparable, it has a lot of remedies to offer, which can be very useful in dealing with today’s increasingly frequent psychosomatic disorders. Nutrition & lifestyle advice, meditation and herbal remedies can have great therapeutic benefits and these tools are increasingly appreciated in the Western medical world. Within the core concept of ayurveda, personal growth and spirituality play an important and obvious role when it comes to health and life in general.
