The fundamentals of Ayurveda

The three doshas – Vata, Pitta, Kapha – represent the basic energies in the body and determine our physical and mental constitution. A balance of these energies is crucial for optimal health and well-being. Vata stands for movement and creativity, Pitta for metabolism and transformation, and Kapha for structure and stability.

Ayurveda incorporates various branches such as internal medicine, surgery, otorhinolaryngology, pediatrics, toxicology, psychiatry, rejuvenation therapies (rasayana) and aphrodisiacs. Each of these branches aims to restore individual balance and promote health.

Rasayana, the branch of rejuvenation, is particularly noteworthy as it encompasses diverse practices and therapies aimed at prolonging life, preserving youth and maintaining health.

Ayurvedic rejuvenation methods:

Diet: an Ayurvedic diet is based on the individual’s constitution and digestive fire (agni). It includes the consumption of fresh, seasonal and natural foods. Herbs and spices are used to aid digestion, treat illnesses and improve general well-being.

Herbal therapy: Use of herbs such as ashwagandha, amalaki and shatavari to strengthen and rejuvenate the body. These herbs support cell regeneration and increase vitality.

Oil treatments: Abhyanga (Ayurvedic massage) and other oil applications are central components of Ayurvedic therapy. They help the body to bind accumulated waste products and improve tissue quality.

Yoga and meditation: Regular yoga exercises and meditation practices support mental and physical balance. They help to reduce stress, calm the mind and improve concentration.

Purification therapies (Panchakarma): These deep cleansing practices aim to remove deep-seated toxins from the body and stimulate the body’s self-regulation.

Improving mental clarity: Rasayana also includes mental practices that calm the mind and reduce stress. This leads to improved concentration and mental clarity.

Emotional stability: The combination of oil applications and meditative practices promotes emotional balance and helps to cope better with emotional challenges.

Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to promoting health and well-being that takes into account individual constitution, age, climate and lifestyle. Through the integration of diet, herbs, oil applications, yoga and meditation, Ayurveda can prevent disease, correct imbalances and extend lifespan. This approach, which originated over 5000 years ago, is still very important and relevant today.


The modern term longevity stands for the extension of a healthy lifespan with full vitality. The aim is to prevent diseases before symptoms appear and to maximize the quality of life. The main goal is not simply to maximize the years lived, but to improve their quality. The pursuit of longevity only makes sense if old age is experienced in pure vitality, without significant limitations and free from physical or mental complaints.

Goals: The approach focuses on the individual person and their environment. This includes a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of human life: from biochemistry, cells, mitochondria and tissue to the entire body in the context of the social environment and environmental factors. The aim is to regulate the internal and external biological ecosystem through sustainable interventions. This maintains the balance of body, mind and social environment. The focus is on treating identified problems through specific orthomolecular, bioregulatory and metabolic therapies as well as lifestyle changes. It is never too late to take care of your health. But the earlier it’s done, the better.
