Training Ayurveda nutritionist

Training Ayurveda nutritionist

Qualified training is of crucial importance for professional development and career opportunities. In cooperation with the “School of Ayurveda Suisse”, the Ayurveda paradise offers qualified Ayurveda specialist training and further education. We present them to you in the magazine.

Ayurvedic nutrition is a world full of aromas and sensual taste experiences. At the same time, it is one of the three pillars of Ayurveda alongside manual therapy (massages) and cleansing (Panchakarma) and is therefore one of the most important methods for maintaining and restoring health. Food and spices serve as medicine and special dietary rules promote and stabilize individual health and contribute to the healing of diseases. The focus is on strengthening the digestive power and detoxifying the entire organism.

The most important principle of nutrition in the Ayurvedic sense is that it should always be tailored to the individual, their respective needs and the individual digestive power and living conditions.
