Ayurveda the Wisdom of Life and Longevity

“Ayurveda, the realized knowledge of life is most sacred because wise persons regard its ability to fulfill all the pursuits of this world and beyond.”                                                                      (Charaka Samhita, Sutra Section, Ch. 1/43, Longevity – Ayurveda Definition)

Ayurveda is the earliest health wisdom known to mankind, founded 3000 years ago in two Sanskrits texts. This compiled wisdom remains unchanged to date. It includes both the scientific reasonings as well as the spiritual explanations of life. The exponents of Ayurveda were enlightened Yogis, Sages and Seers.

Ayurveda recognises three primary life-forces in the body, which correspond to the elements of air, fire and water – the three Doshas. Being the active elements, they determine the life process of growth and decay. They are called the three doshas. When the doshas are out of balance, they cause toxins and – if not treated early enough – disease.

Each person has all three Doshas and their proportions determine one’s physiological and personality traits.

The 3 Dosha types

Vata Dosha – is the energy that controls bodily functions associated with motion, including breathing, blood circulation, blinking, and the heartbeat. Vata is translated as „wind“ and it governs sensory and mental balance and orientation and promotes mental adaptability and comprehension. If Vata predominates , we tend to be thin, light and quick in our thoughts and actions. We love changes in our lives. When Vata is balanced, we are creative and enthusiastic. But if Vata becomes excessive, we may develop anxiety, insomnia or irregular digestion.

Pitta Dosha – means „that which digests things“ and is the energy that controls the body’s metabolic systems, including digestion, absorption, and the body’s temperature. It is also responsible for our mental digestion, our capacity to perceive reality and understand things as they are. If there is more Pitta in our individual constitution, we are muscular, smart and determined. If balanced, we are warm, intelligent and good leaders. If out of balance, too much Pitta can make us critical, irritable and aggressive.

Kapha Dosha is translated as „that which holds things together“– it is the energy that controls growth in the body. It provides our emotional support of life, and relates to positive emotional traits like love, compassion, modesty, patience and forgiveness. It supplies water to all body parts, gives substance and support, makes up the bodily tissues, moisturizes the skin and maintains the immune system. If we have mostly Kapha in our nature, we are heavier, think and move slowly and are stable. When balanced, it creates calmness, sweetness and loyalty. When there is too much Kapha in the individual, it can cause weight gain, congestion and resistance to healthy change.

Using the principles of Ayurveda by the method of pulse-diagnosis, we can identify our mind/body nature and use this understanding to make the most nourishing choices in our lives in order to stay healthy and vital.

Ayurveda has provided extremely effective methods to identify toxins from the body and to eliminate them completely. For thousands of years these methods have been practiced, tested and have been proven to be effective. In the old time these methods were not widely known around the world. People who had heard about these ayurvedic detoxification therapies used to travel far and wide to avail the benefits.

But today it is available in Switzerland. We propose to identify and cleanse bio-toxins successfully from the body of each of our participants.
