What’s the fuss about European Ayurveda®?
It is perfectly attuned to Western requirements
Off the peg is out and made-to-measure is in – especially when it comes to health, nutrition and exercise. European Ayurveda® provides just that and is perfectly attuned to Western requirements: healing herbs and foods grown on home soil at the European Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof’s farm, Lindhof; Ayurvedic therapies and treatments combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), conventional medicine and the latest scientific findings to tackle lifestyle diseases. Highly innovative, holistic and handed down over the millennia, the Sonnhof also offers Panchakarma combined with Shamanic coaching.
Day after day, we risk the most valuable thing we own: our health. While stress, lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet have a dire impact, Ayurveda provides effective solutions that work with life as it is, not as we wish it was. Tried and tested for over 5,000 years, it is a recognised medical teaching and philosophy of life. Now European Ayurveda® has adapted it to the demands of our Western way of life. Why travel long-haul when the best is so much closer?
European Ayurveda® – tailor-made for the individual
We all love exotic ingredients and flavours, but they can be a digestive challenge. Ayurveda teaches that we should aspire to eat food that has been grown in – and on – the soil on which we were raised too. The body absorbs and processes locally-grown food more easily and at a faster rate. Furthermore, many of our local herbs can replace traditional Ayurvedic healing herbs.
Thanks to the Lindhof European Ayurveda farm, the Sonnhof has an ideal source of regional, organic, healing foods that suit Western digestive systems. Their 11 hectares provide nature’s treasures grown using traditional methods of cultivation. From vegetables, fruit and herbs to beef, chicken, goose, eggs and honey, all produce is used in the Sonnhof’s European Ayurveda Signature cuisine to make wholesome and delicious Ayurvedic dishes better suited to European digestive systems than the Indian originals.
Over long periods, the emotional toxicity of negative feelings turns into physical toxins. That’s why European Ayurveda® includes spiritual practices, guided meditations and special Yoga programmes such as Vata-Pitta-Kapha Yoga to balance the Doshas.’
Ayurveda PLUS at the European Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof adds Western medicine, TCM and kinesiology to Ayurvedic practice. The Ayurveda PLUS treatments were developed by conventional GP and naturopath Dr Alaettin Sinop. Drawing on different schools of healing, he combines them into effective treatment methods exclusive to the European Ayurveda® Resort Sonnhof and specially devised to target western lifestyle ailments. Ayurveda PLUS Intensive is particularly effective for back and joint problems.
