The Vegan Panchakarma
In the last twenty years, there has been a huge increase in people deciding to follow a vegan diet. In spite of Ayurveda advising a mainly vegetarian diet, it does recommend a regular detoxification cure. This detoxification is used to eradicate errors in the way of living and to eliminate environmental toxins. As of now, Ayurveda Parkschlosschen offers a vegan version of the Panchakarma Cure and all other programmes.
The vegan Panchakarma Cure at Ayurveda Parkschlösschen is a holistic cleansing of the body and mind, removing environmental toxins and stressors, compensating imbalances and pampering the guest with vegan Ayurvedic gourmet cuisine, thus fortifying the individual state of health – for an active and fulfilling life without animal products.
Ayurveda and Vegan Nutrition
The holistic health system Ayurveda draws on all natural resources to improve the individual's health. The meaning of Ayurveda is 'the knowledge of life', so in order to live an Ayurvedic life you must 'live according to the knowledge of life.' Ideally, each individual chooses the influences that will improve their personal state of health on a day-to-day basis. Through Ayurveda, factors which are detrimental to the individuals should be reduced to a minimum and ideally compensated by positive factors.
One of the main pillars that are necessary for keeping the mind and body healthy is nutrition. According to Ahara, Ayurvedic dietetics, the most significant component is not the food itself but the eater. The food should always be in tune with the eater and their Dosha constitution, their imbalances, their illnesses and their age. This can depend on the demands of their energy, the time of day and the year.
In Ayurvedic cuisine and medicine, the proportion of mineral and plant-based foods and remedies are predominant. However, selected animal products are used in the body in the form of remedies and as sources of nutrients. Thus, Ayurveda is neither pure vegetarian nor a vegan health system. Animal products can, however, be substituted by plant-based products, as long as the basic rules of Ayurvedic dietetics and healing are taken into consideration.
Can You Be Vegan and Still Have Imbalances According To Ayurveda?
Imbalances or even chronic illnesses can occur in vegans as a result of living a lifestyle that is in contrary to their Dosha constellation. Due to bad habits, environmental toxins, metabolic waste, negative stress and a lack of mindfulness, the body can be impaired in its health.
The Vegan Panchakarma Cure at Parlschlosschen
In order to achieve profound detoxification, the ancient scriptures of Ayurveda recommend a Panchakarma Cure every 1-2 years.
Since 1993 Ayurveda Parkschlösschen, as a specialist for Panchakarma, has been offering vegetarian and almost exclusively vegan gourmet Ayurveda Cuisine as part of their holistic concept.
The Panchakarma Cure at Ayurveda Parkschlösschen, along with all other programmes, can be booked as an exclusively vegan option. In addition to the regular course of treatment tailored to match the individual constitution, the current state of health and the vegan lifestyle of the guest will be taken into account.
