The Maharishi Ayurveda Privat-Klinik In Bad Ems Germany

In this article I’d like to introduce you to the Ayurveda Privat-Klinik in Bad Ems by leveraging its official video material.

Basically, I can recommend those interested to undergo a Ayurveda (Panchakarma or detoxification treatment, respectively) or specialty treatments in the country of residence. Long journeys, for example, to Asia, have the tendency to not only be costly, but also to increase Vata-Dosha, which was decreased by the treatment. It should also be noted that not every Panchakarma treatment abroad is a classical treatment. Rather, it is often just a spa treatment and might not achieve the desired results. Therefore, it is important to always inform yourself very well and comprehensively. Although the Panchakarma treatment of an Ayurvedic Center is the core of its treatments, there are also special treatments for various ailments and disorders. These can be explored in advance on the center’s homepage or by phone. My recommendations are for your reference only, and based on my own positive experiences.


The Knowledge Of Life – Ayurveda In Sri Lanka – A Film Documentary From The TV-Channel Arte

The land of Ayurveda. Sri Lanka is known for its oversupply of Ayurvedic cures. You can find them on every street corner. Therefore, it is important to prepare well and find an authentic spa hotel. Unfortunately, I can not give recommendations because I have no experience in this regard. Nevertheless, it is interesting to accompany two women from Berlin on their journey. Also, it is interesting to see that the Ayurvedic cures can be quite different, depending on the country and region. Basically, all Ayurveda cures have one thing in common. The health maintenance or health restoration of the person, physically as well as psychologically. Yoga and meditation are also an important part of this. Have a look at it and learn again. Enjoy.


Movie Recommendation: The Indian Doctor

“I love what I do and I do what I love.” Vasant Lad, Ayurvedic doctor

A film about Vasant Lad, one of the most esteemed ayurveda doctors worldwide. He holds a BA in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (B.A.M.S.) and a Master of Ayurvedic Science in India. He is the director of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, NM, has published many Ayurvedic medical books and articles. He teaches physicians, naturopaths and others worldwide.

Under The Spell Of The Green Gods – The Doctors Of The Maharajah

An extensive and very beautiful documentary film from the television station phoenix. The eye of the beholder is presented with many beautiful shots of India.

The movie is about the origins of Ayurveda, its botany and its current limits. Interesting is also its kinship with the Tibetan medicine, whose plants come from a completely untouched nature. Ayurveda became quickly obliterated during the colonial period and the advancement of Western medicine. Today, most search and research of ancient scripts is carried out systematically and scientifically as well as in close collaboration of both Eastern and Western medicine and pharmacology.

From the following quotation of a Sanskrit text, it becomes clear how immensely influential food is on our health. “It is by good nutrition alone that the human being thrives, while bad causes disease.”

Hermann Ammon (professor at the University of Tübingen, pharmacologist and medical doctor) adds: “The knowledge of the thousand-year-old plant treasures is more valuable than all the jewels of the Maharajahs, the once mighty rulers”.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda means knowledge of life – “Mother Of All Cures”. Ayurveda naturally preserves health and eliminates diseases.

In this short film the connections of Ayurveda are explained simply and understandably by an Ayurveda doctor. The five elements (earth, water, fire, air, space or ether) are explained in connection with the three doshas – vata, pitta, kapha and diseases. The six flavors and our way of life have an elementary influence on the Doshas and thus on health and illness. It is therefore important to know your own dosha and live accordingly.

Ayurveda is a life philosophy and medicine that can lead us back to nature.
