Contamination from environmental toxins (herbicide, pesticide, timber preservative, etc.) When the body is flooded with harmful substances
“I keep getting new diseases“, ”I am increasingly listless“, ”My weight is going up and up …”.
Such signs may also indicate exposure to environmental toxins.
Weed and pest killers, wood preservatives, and other man-made chemical compounds from food and the living environment are constantly finding their way into our bodies. And are much more harmful than previously thought. Even after three generations, researchers have found greater sensitivity to stress, altered hormones and increased body weight, and in many cases altered genes in the brain in laboratory animals after a single exposure to an antifungal agent.
Environmental physicians blame environmental toxins for a variety of diseases, including allergies, asthma, and skin conditions.
How does Vedic Medicine view exposure to environmental toxins?
Contamination from environmental toxins from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, hay fever starts with the loss of natural balance.
Constantly arise – due to our way of life – metabolic residues and toxins, called “Ama” in Ayurveda, which can accumulate everywhere in the body. Especially the chemically new substances of the environmental toxins are a major problem for the organism and can have a lasting negative effect on many bodily functions.
However, according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and each exposure to environmental pollutants manifests itself differently. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, contamination from environmental toxins is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. Thus, in the case of exposure to environmental pollutants, the mobilization and systematic elimination of toxins through Ayurvedic treatments will be in the foreground. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all specially prepared for you – help you to lead a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers can activate the elimination processes and reduce the disturbing effects of environmental toxins.
