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.


YogaMeHome – Online-Yoga

YogaMeHome is an online yoga class with video tutorials for anyone who wants to practice yoga at any time at home, and who does not want to go without specialist instructions.

However, before I recommend these courses, I would like to point out that I have tried the exercises myself before this writing and they feel really great. There are many different exercise categories for beginners, unsportsmanlike, advanced, and more. There is something for everyone. There is even a free 14-day trial subscription, where you can test, whether you like it or not. So, if you’ve been fond of trying out yoga for a long time, then this is your opportunity.



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.

The film shows how Vasant Lad brought Ayurveda to the West and tells about his life and work in America and India. He gives us interesting insights on what is possible with Ayurveda. Very impressive. If you have not seen the movie yet, you can do that by purchasing a DVD. It is highly recommended, especially for those who do not know Ayurveda.

Here is a trailer for the movie:

I would also like to recommend his bestseller:

“Self-healing with Ayurveda” The standard work of Indian healing art

ISBN 0-914955-00-4

By the way, also a good Christmas present.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Stay healthy.

Clinical Review Of Vardhamana Pippali Rasayana In The Treatment Of Amavata (Rheumatoid Arthritis)

Rheumatoid arthritis (formerly called polyarthritis) is an inflammation of the inner skin of joints of jaw, fingers, toes, hands, feet, knees, elbows, hips, and shoulders.

Up to now, scientific studies have always been the best and most convincing way of uniting Ayurveda with our health and medical systems when sensitizing people to alternative methods. Of course, one always has to remember that further studies are needed for confirmation. But a milestone has already been set.
