Ayurvedic medicine

The aim of Ayurvedic therapy is to gently return people to a state of health or to keep the healthy organism healthy and in harmony with oneself and nature. Translated literally, Ayurveda means “knowledge of life” and, in addition to the teaching of illness and its treatment, it includes all areas of life. The treatment approaches relate to the areas of nutrition, lifestyle, detoxification, mindfulness and marma therapy, the Ayurvedic vital point massage. Ayurvedic healing, which has been practiced for over 7000 years, is also known as the mother of medicine and has its origins in India. Both the Chinese medicine with the acupuncture techniques, the Greek Hippocratic medicine and the knowledge of Paracelsus can be traced back to Ayurvedic teachings. 

The individual constitution of a person is defined in Ayurvedic terms using the so-called Doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha. If the Dosha constitution, which is typical for the individual, is out of balance, e.g. due to prolonged stress or unfavorable eating habits, diseases can arise. The Ayurvedic treatment initially includes the study of the Dosha distribution, which is reflected in the pulse, among other things. The study is supplemented by a detailed anamnesis and a physical examination. 

Often it is simple living or eating habits that are “not good” for the personal Dosha type or the current illness. Through targeted advice, supplemented by phytotherapeutic preparations, i.e. purely herbal medicines, the organism is returned to its own state of health. Many complaints, such as joint problems or symptoms of excessive strain, can also be treated specifically with marma therapy. This gentle form of vital point massage is similar to acupuncture, whereby the effect is achieved by a gentle massage instead of setting needles. 

 

Ayurvedic therapy through surgery 

If you are open to Ayurvedic therapy, maybe even have experience with Ayurvedic medicine, you can let us guide you through Ayurvedic surgeries. The general procedure of the surgery and surgical preparations such as the preliminary surgical and anesthesiological discussion remain unchanged. The surgical incision, however, is marma-friendly if possible. This means that the vital points are spared. On the day before the surgery or, alternatively, on the morning of the surgery, there is a relaxing Let-Go marma massage lasting approx. 20 minutes. This vital point massage helps you to go into the surgery calmly and without fear, so that the stress hormone level is lowered. Immediately after the surgery and—in the case of inpatient interventions—also on the following days, the surgical scar is treated with a special scar oil. This treatment not only clears the scar, but can also lead to a better cosmetic result.  On the day after the surgery or the day before discharge, the body is strengthened by marma hand treatment. With our patient manager you can choose Ayurvedic meals during your inpatient stay in our clinic. Hot water, ginger and lemon tea are always available. In our meditation room on the 3rd floor you will find a place of silence that is always accessible.
