Every body and mind disharmony can be assigned to the three doshas. In a first preliminary discussion with the Ayurveda doctor, the ratio of the three doshas (body constitution; Vata, Pitta and Kapha) is determined. This means that a corresponding treatment with massages, baths, possible cures and a natural diet can be put together as a basis Ayurveda products serve as support or according to the recommendations of the doctor and therapist.
Lose weight with an Ayurvedic diet
Anyone who has once started to follow the rules of Ayurveda will find that they lose weight a little by themselves. Because here you only eat when you are hungry and the last meal has been digested. Eating more than a handful is also taboo in Ayurveda.
In addition, a balanced diet with all the nutrients the body needs prevents cravings from developing. Your body will signal to the brain that it is well taken care of all around.
If Indian cuisine is not your thing, you can still eat according to the rules of Ayurveda. Incidentally, Indian is not to be equated with Ayurvedic food, even if Indian food is based on Ayurvedic food and is increasingly being integrated into the latest Indian cookery books.

Healthy, natural diet
As you probably already know, Ayurveda translates as 'science of (long) life'. The centuries-old Indian teaching aims to keep people healthy and vital.
Food as medicine
Ayurveda teachings divide people into three different types, depending on their physical and mental constitution: Vata: assigned to the element air, Pitta: composed of the elements fire and water and Kapha: earth and water. If these three so-called "Doshas" are in balance, the person is healthy, in harmony and vital. Ayurvedic nutrition can correct any imbalance. Representatives of the teaching are convinced: If you eat right, you don't need medicine.
