that we treat
Ayurveda is, of course, not a miracle cure for everything. However, over the years we have made the experience that Ayurveda can offer an alternative or complementary mode of therapy in a large number of diseases. Typical indication of Ayurvedic therapy can be found here.
To find out what you need to sustain your health we start with a comprehensive ayurvedic diagnosis including the diagnosis of your constitution. The treatments you receive, the food that is served and the oils used for massage, everything is tailored to your individual needs. In this way you will experience well-being in body, mind and soul.
The basis of the ayurverdic doctrine is the conception of five main elements out of which everything is created, including human beings and the world around them. This is used as a basis for giving a systematic explanation of the interrelation between humans and their environment. Two “concerns” influence human beings: Structural concerns, such as types of tissue, for example muscular or fatty tissue and different circulatory systems, such as blood vessels and neural pathways. Strengths or energies, because humans beings are in a constant state of change. Among these “energies”, the three Doshas are especially important, as they regulate bodily functions. Our questionnaire will assist you in determining your ayurvedic constitution.
The Ayurveda ideology requires that every individual maintain his own system of beliefs. Ever in ancient times, doctors and writers were of different religious convictions – Buddhists and Hindus – and in India today, Christians and Muslims can also be found among the ayurvedic doctors.
Of course, Ayurveda is not a miracle cure for everything. A broken leg or acute appendicitis must first be treated using modern medical techniques. It has, however, been our experience, that Ayurveda can be an effective alternative or supplement in the treatment of many illnesses. Additionally, our Ayurveda-Klinik is part of the Habichtswald-Klinik which is comprised of numerous medical units.
