More and more people consider Ayurveda as an innocent way to optimize themselves. Natural medicine has the reputation of being harmless and without side effects. But Ayurveda teaches us that too much is too much. Ama, the technical term of Ayurveda to describe undigested food, which affects and adversely changes the metabolism and the immune system, is often enough the result of wrong perception and consequent wrong action.
Especially the urge to take more of preparations "prophylactically" without consultation after thorough anamnesis gives away options when these means are really needed in acute cases. They also have side effects with continuous use, which can only cause processes of excessive immune response.
Autoimmune diseases are derailments of our protective system and must be treated with special care, but above all they must be considered in a holistic context.
The power of our breath
We humans can survive several weeks without food, even three days without drinking, but only a few minutes without breathing. We are so often trying to improve our lives, take care of our health, and we try to do so first with what we need the least: our food. Instead of starting with our breath!
What can our way of breathing tell us about ourselves? How can we make our breaths a source of conscious well-being? How can we learn to reduce stress with our breathing? Or not get there at all?
In this mini-workshop we will learn some basic things about our breath and try out in examples how we can become clearer, more awake and relaxed by changing our breathing in a targeted way.
Please blow your nose, sit upright and participate!
Love, fire and knowledge in fertility treatment
M. Heider De Jahnsen HP
It's not so easy: we have all learned that if you just make the right effort, if you want something so badly, then it succeeds.
Is that what you tell a woman who's wanted to have a child for years? And yet she hears such a thing over and over again. But after some time she also hears that she perhaps wishes it too much... if she would stop wishing, it would already happen.
Trapped in fairy tales spun out of hope, and in the attempt to use mental looping, to suffer costly fertility treatments, to have to complete wellness programs without end, love and passion often fall by the wayside for the woman and the partnership. Health is strained, nerves are exposed. The self-esteem is shaken. Love thirsts.
How can we give our patients a feeling of reconciliation with themselves and with life, with their own bodies?
How can we convey to them that things will continue with and without a child?
What help can Ayurveda offer, even after everything else has been exhausted?
How do the women find their inner fire again?
Ayurveda and Yoga are the sister companions on the way through the thorns.
I will present my ayurvedic programs and clinical results and will again give practical instructions and exercises.
Yoga, Pranayama and Ayurveda in trauma therapy
Manuela Heider de Jahnsen
What does a woman with dog have to do with the yoga/Pranayama work? And can What's App help to heal Ayurvedically? Learn from the "Gala"? We will hear the explanations in this lecture.
In the daily practical work with people I encounter everyday stories. Stories that seem banal at first sight. Stories that only attain their deep and touching significance against the background of the often unbelievable events in the lives of these people.
Through the basic and ordering concepts of Ayurveda, we are able to slowly and progressively repair the daily lives of these people. The trauma-sensitive work with yoga, pranayama and the manas vcriti-healing applications and plants of Ayurveda has taken up a significant and constantly growing space in my practice, which I would like to tell you about here by means of case studies.
People like to come, and each time they report the gentle and integrating effects they have experienced, but also the difficulties they encounter when they break free from the shackles of fear.
During the treatment we accompany her and gradually learn more about her touching inner images, which accompany the path of dissolving the trauma. Without them seeing their experiences again, without them feeling exposed to the overwhelming emotions again. In the embracing Ayurveda Yoga therapeutic practice they experience security and safety. It is as if, in the darkness of terror, a window is opened through which the clear light of the present streams in and shows the way out of the past.
Using the doshas and mental gunas, I will show the individual phases of shock, numbness and resolution. The practical exercises in breath work, the yoga exercises and exemplary prescriptions of ayurvedic measures can be implemented by therapists as well as by relatives and affected persons in an equally safe and stabilizing way.
