Cornelis Peters studied pharmacology and physiology at Utrecht University of Applied Sciences and became a research associate at several leading hospitals in the Netherlands. Among them is the famous Dutch Cancer Institute, Antony van Leeuwenhoek. During a sabbatical in India, he came across Ayurveda and became fascinated with this healing method that he studied to become an Ayurveda doctor. He founded the Europa Ayurveda Centre in the Netherlands with his late wife, Dr. V.P. Mohana Kumari, and son Vighnesh M. Peters. Together they are the inspiring driving force behind this institute. Europa Ayurveda Centre (EAC) is an agricultural estate with treatment and research facilities. The center is actively involved in research projects with Ayurvedic medicinal plants grown on 10 ha of land owned by the center.

Exposure to Trauma is every day (Kessler et al., 2017). The consequence of Traumatic experiences on individuals and communities can hardly be overestimated. In Europe, as in other regions of the world, a high burden of Trauma is related to human intervention or human-made events. In this presentation, I focus on how multi-layered Trauma is. For that reason, it is not easy to treat people suffering from PTSS with the one fits all method. Trauma is a person’s emotional response to a distressing experience. I explain four ways to treat Trauma. I then connect Ayurvedic approaches, including Kalaripayattu, to treat the imprint of Trauma to reclaim yourself.
Alzheimer's disease (AD), more than any other, is the most terrible disease that people can suffer. At a time when we know more about the brain than ever before, brain diseases, including AD, are the number one causes of death. How is this possible?
Where does it go wrong in people's development that right now, the solutions to brain diseases are one of the most significant challenges to solve for scientists worldwide?
In April 2003, the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium for Human Genome Research announced that the project was ready, even two years before the deadline. This enormous milestone in human history has not produced a pill to combat Alzheimer's disease. If it's not in our DNA, where is it?
More money is being spent on research and drugs to restore the function of our brains than ever before. So far, no medicine has been found to cure Alzheimer's disease. How is that possible?
In addition to these unanswered questions, there are also shocking figures.The number of people with dementia is estimated at 50 million worldwide. Currently, this is greater than the total population of Spain and is projected to almost triple by 2050.
The number of people with dementia is expected to rise more rapidly in Asia compared to the rest of the world.
Dementia can be utterly overwhelming for the families of affected people, their friends, and colleagues. Physical, emotional, and financial pressures can cause high stress to families and carers, and support is required from the health, social, economic, and legal systems. According to WHO the calculation in 2015 is that the total global societal cost of dementia was estimated to be US$ 818 billion. Now the figures are even much higher.
However, there may be an answer. Not in modern conventional health care, not in the high-tech laboratories of the pharmaceutical industries, but we can find answers in the ancient Ayurveda, the science of life.
We can reverse Alzheimer disease with the insights of Ayurveda by restoring the metabolic dysfunction that lay underneath.
In our center in Witharen, we cultivate Atma Choorna consisting of a group of Ayurveda herbs that boost the metabolic system and promote oxygen in the body, including the mind.
In my lecture, I will explain the restoration of this metabolic dysfunction, using two case studies from my practice.
