What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the world`s oldest form of medicine still practiced today. It has its origins in the ancient Vedic civilization on the Indian subcontinent and has been continuously used
for more than 5000 years. Ayurveda is thus the first systematic collection of medical knowledge.
Today, Ayurveda has incorporated the environmental conditions, climate, seasons, and diet of the West to make its principle more applicable to our living conditions here in Europe.
The aim of ayurveda is a long and healthy life by taking responsibility for oneself.
We`re not interested in taking over the foreign culture wholesale, but instead integrating its underlying principles adapted to our situation.
