Spices, herbs and oils in Ayurveda therapy

Ayurveda describes spices as the nectar of the gods: even small amounts can change the effect of food, make food tasty and have a healing effect on body and soul.

Learn to classify spices according to Ayurvedic principles and turn your spice rack into a medicine cabinet. In a lively and practical way, you will learn in this seminar how spices affect food, constiution (doshas) and metabolism (agni) and eliminate everyday ailments such as headaches, coughs or indigestion.
