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.

Curcumin (Turmeric, Curcuma Longa)

Curcumin belongs to the family of ginger, and can be used in a versatile manner. Hence, consider it a prophylactic must-have ingredient for your kitchen. To effectively strengthen its bioavailability consume curcuma in combination with long pepper as recommendations go by literature.

In India, curcumin is well-known as means to stain both  textiles and skin. It is also used against pesticides or as antiseptic agent. On top, multiple clinical studies have proven its effect against several forms of cancer. Cur cumin can also help to treat multiple other diseases like diabetes, and dermatosis. Please note, in order to treat a disease with curcumin consult your physician or a local Ayurvedic Doctor.

Have a look at a video about the effects of curcumin based on a scientific study from PhD Bharad B. Aggarwal, Professor for Cancer Medicine at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX.
