Ayurveda courses of treatment for specific conditions

Many people have had the experience that conventional therapies alone are insufficient for many disorders, both chronic and acute. They become aware that the path to recovery must take place on all levels and that it’s vital to restore the body’s regulatory principles to their natural balanced state. Soothing oil massages, elimination of metabolic residue, regular doctor’s consultations, Ayurvedic gourmet full board, dietary recommendations, yoga, practical meditation and breathing exercises, and herbal mixtures especially composed for you – all these approaches together will help you transition to a more conscious lifestyle. Your own self-healing powers become balanced again and establish you in your physical and mental equilibrium in a natural and long-lasting way. This creates the basis for holistic health, vitality and zest for life.

Panchakarma – the heart of Ayurvedic therapy

The heart of our Ayurvedic course of treatment is the classic Ayurvedic cleansing cure known as Panchakarma. Panchakarma is a system of well-coordinated physical treatments that together ensure a gentle yet profound cleansing of the physiology from metabolic residue, thus removing the basis of many disorders. We mainly use Panchakarma’s first three procedures, as the western lifestyle almost always calls for a detoxification that is also balancing and soothing.

Advantages of an Ayurveda course of treatment in Bad Ems

Ayurveda Behandlungen

Authentic Ayurveda

In our Ayurveda clinic, ancient knowledge is applied in accord with its pure, original tradition. Nevertheless, there is nothing outdated about it – in fact, it is highly necessary for the modern person. Ayurveda deeply understands the diseases of Western civilization – excessive stress, anxiety, depression – and knows how to create the basis for a complete rebalancing of these disorders.

Thus, there is no need to travel to an Ayurveda resort in India or Sri Lanka if you are looking for authenticity. Right in the middle of Germany, you can find a real Ayurveda cure of the highest medical standard.


Ayurveda Ärzte

Competent physicians and therapists

The treatments you’ll receive during your Ayurveda cure are selected and individualized to best suit your needs and wishes and your current state of health. To this end, every cure starts with a comprehensive consultation and examination with your attending Ayurvedic physician. During this diagnostic appointment of about an hour, your doctor carries out an Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis and asks you questions to ascertain your personal state of health and also your constitution and Dosha type. Ayurveda speaks of three Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha and our therapists apply those principles in practice: they know how to adapt each treatment to your Dosha constitution.

Ayurvedische Ernährung während der Kur

Quality products

The medicinal herbal oils and compresses we use are all freshly prepared. We strictly use products from Maharishi Ayurveda Europe, manufactured to a high quality standard and free of mercury and other heavy metals.

These products and herbs, including Ayurvedic Rasayanas, are tested in India and additionally in independent laboratories in Europe according to the most rigorous up-to-date European guidelines for heavy metals, microbiology, and pesticides.


Ayurvedische Ernährung während der Kur

Ayurvedic cuisine

Since a Panchakarma course of treatment keeps your cells and tissues quite busy with detoxification and can also be a challenge for the intestines, the food you consume should be easy to digest. Traditionally, this prescribes vegetarian and predominately warm dishes that are tasty, varied and good-looking. Our wonderful kitchen achieves this with dedication and creativity, ensuring complete nutritional value by including Dal and Lassi at lunch. (Dal is a well-seasoned, rather liquid legume dish, and Lassi is a drink prepared from homemade yogurt.)

Yoga, Meditation & Kochkurse

Extensive supporting program

Many options are offered to make you feel comfortable and to enhance your wellness experience. For example, you are free to participate in daily yoga classes during your course of treatment.

If you wish, you can also learn the Transcendental Meditation technique. The instruction takes place in a seven-step course and is taught in person by an authorized meditation teacher.
