Ayurvedic Nutrition and Constitution

Food for inner balance

Appropriate nutrition is an important component in Ayurvedic healing and therapy. Up to 50% of the personal state of health depends on the individual's diet. Thereby the daily meals decide about the function of the metabolism, the tissue structure as well as the physical and mental condition of the person.

In this lively and informative intensive seminar you will gain a comprehensive insight into the complex application of Ayurvedic nutrition to strengthen health and balance Dosha and Agni.
