Many people think of wellness treatments such as the well-known forehead massage that many hotels use to advertise their spa area when they think of Ayurveda. In fact, Ayurveda is the traditional medicine with probably the most empirical knowledge in the world, as it has been used for over 2 years.000 years of seamless use and therefore has extremely comprehensive treatment knowledge. Neither TCM, which only came into use in the 20th century In the 19th century, it was revived in a politically controlled manner, and European medicine - with the exception of the writings of Hildegard von Bingen - can still look back on such a tradition.


Ayurveda means “science of life” (ayus = “life” and veda = “knowledge”) and has its roots in the holy Indian writings, the so-called. Vedas, which, like Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), combine physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of healing. Thus, Ayurveda can be viewed as a perfect example of a holistic healing system.

This is about...a around five areas:

  • Healthy, type-appropriate nutrition
  • Exercise through yoga for physical well-being
  • Executive procedures, v.a via the intestines (“Vasti”) and nose (“Nasri”), but also external discharges, for example. through sweat chambers (“Svedana”) and oil massages
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Conscious breathing and meditation to recharge your batteries and find peace


 Nutrition is particularly important in Ayurveda - both in the prevention and treatment of illnesses. Spices and herbs are specifically used as medicinal products. In Ayurveda, spices are comparable to the herbal teas of Western natural medicine. We have put together the most important spices and herbs in this category for you.

The control forces

Just like in TCM, everything in Ayurveda is based on the five elements fire, water, earth, air and ether (in TCM, wood and metal stand for air and ether), of which everything is made up. These five elements are called the three Assigned to “doshas” – these are the regulating forces Vata (ether, air), Pitta (fire, water) and Kapha (earth, water).



Vata is the movement principle in the human body and is closely linked to the nervous system. Its main location is below the belly button in the large intestine area. Everything that moves within us is determined by Vata: breath, digestion, metabolism and thoughts.

Properties: cold, dry, rough, fast, hard and cracked. If Vata dominates, the skin is dry, hands and feet are often cold, metabolism and speech are fast, and hair is fine.

On the spiritual level, Vata dominance is characterized by volatility, thirst for knowledge, enthusiasm and the proverbial juggling of several balls at the same time. The Vata type starts many things enthusiastically, but often doesn't finish them. quickly loses sight of the goal. He finds cool and windy weather unpleasant.

    • Positive: lightness, cheerfulness and joy of life, alertness, clarity, creativity
    • Negative: restlessness, pain, thin skin, sadness, depression


Helpful for too much Vata: routines, warm meals (ideally sweet, sour and salty), little raw food, massages and baths


Pitta is responsible for digestion, metabolism, intellect, hormonal balance and the body's heat production. It is located in the stomach, duodenum and small intestine.

Characteristics: hot, spicy, liquid, moist, sour, bitter and sudden onset. If the pitta is too high, you are constantly hungry and are very impatient, angry and irritable if something to eat is not immediately available. Blemished skin, stomach pain, heartburn, diarrhea and inflammation are common Pitta problems.

On the spiritual level, Pita dominance is v.a to recognize ambition and perfectionism; they are very critical of themselves and others. Pitta types don't lose sight of their goal. Pitta gives strong charisma, intelligence and great will.
Leaders are therefore often pita types. Too much leads to aggression and the compulsion to want to be the best always and everywhere.

    • Positive: lots of energy, charisma, charisma, glowing eyes, targeted energy, enthusiastic.
    • Negative: feeling of heat, inflammation, aggression, envy, jealousy


Helpful if you have too much Pitta: regular relaxation phases (no competitive sports, prefer quiet walks), meditation, yoga, enough sleep, all cooling foods and spices such as melon, potatoes, fennel, cardamom, mint and coriander. Spicy and acidic foods such as meat, white flour products, alcohol, coffee and sugar should be avoided.


Kapha stands for strength, structure, stability, potency and is something like the framework of the body. It is located in the upper part of the stomach and chest. It is next to the body structure, i.e.H va the bone structure, responsible for our immune system and fluid balance. Too much manifests itself in...a in obesity, sluggishness, diabetes or high blood lipid levels.

Characteristics: sweet, heavy, persistent, soft, cold, oily, greasy, sluggish. If Kapha is too dominant, you can easily become inflexible. Cravings, especially for sweet and fatty foods, out of desire and boredom can easily lead to excess fat in the tissue.

On the spiritual level, Kapha stands for courage and emotional stability. Kapha types are sedate, but very persistent and strong. They act carefully, think through decisions very carefully and prefer a calm, even lifestyle. They don't like spontaneous decisions and hectic pace. Kapha types often have a desire to be alone, to be lazy and prefer to deal with conflicts by “sitting it out”.

  • Positive: calm, stable personality, patience, compassion, tenderness, steadfastness
  • Negative: lack of drive, lethargy, ignorance, inertia. He is mentally stuck and immobile


Helpful if there is too much Kapha: a lot of physical activity (even strenuous), active holidays, spicy and bitter foods to stimulate metabolism and digestive power, such as: Chicory, spinach, chard, artichokes, seasoned with cumin, pepper, chili, horseradish, turmeric, ginger and mustard seeds.

If Vata, Pitta and Kapha are in harmony, the person is healthy according to Ayurveda - then the organism is self-renewing and self-correcting.

Ayurveda understands “health” to be more than just the absence of illness. The Ayurvedic term for a healthy state is “svastha”, which means “abiding in the self”.
If the balance of the doshas is disturbed, illnesses arise. They always begin when our natural state of health (“Prakriti”) comes into contact with a disease-causing factor such as: (emotional) stress, unhealthy diet, environmental toxins etc.

Ayurveda in modern times

Traditional medicine is based on a so-called molecular biological body model and analyzes enzymes, hormones, genes, pathogens etc. and tries on the micro level to modify or switch off individual of these biological substances. Ayurveda, on the other hand, thinks in terms of properties: “Movement”, the main characteristic of Vata, favors, for example. an environment that produces symptoms of stress, tension, constipation and difficulty concentrating. “Sour” (Pitta) leads to long-term inflammation and “sweet” (Kapha) leads to obesity and risk of diabetes.

Unlike our Western understanding, in Ayurveda there are no “healthy” or “unhealthy” foods, but only “suitable” or “unsuitable” foods for the respective dosha constitution. For example, we would classify an orange as a fundamentally healthy food because of its high vitamin C content; However, for a Pitta type, Ayurveda would classify the orange as extremely unsuitable and therefore “unhealthy”.


Ayurveda has been recognized as a medical science by the WHO and is officially recognized in India and many neighboring South Asian countries and is treated on an equal footing with modern conventional medicine. The latter comes froma used for acute problems such as broken bones, whereas especiallya Chronic illnesses are primarily treated using Ayurveda.
