Lothar Pirc speaks about Maharishi AyurVeda
On February 20, Lothar Pirc, board member of the International Maharishi AyurVeda Foundation (IMAVF) and CEO of the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre Bad Ems, Germany, introduced Maharishi AyurVeda at the virtual conference LIFTA.SPACE NO LIMITS: transform ACTION 2021.
Over 17,000 participants from Russian-speaking countries, including Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan, learned about Maharishi AyurVeda’s contribution to healthy living.
“I was impressed and delighted by the audience’s response” explained Mr Pirc. ”It was rewarding to share the knowledge of Maharishi Ayurveda and how it can prevent the development of many common diseases.“
Mr Pirc’s presentation outlined the Ayurvedic understanding of how diseases result from imbalances that arise from the mind, body, wrong behaviour, and the environment. Those imbalances influence the Doshas, the Ayurvedic term for metabolic principles that govern our physiology. When the Doshas get out of balance, diseases develop in six stages. Unfortunately, despite significant advances, modern medicine generally can detect a disease usually only when it manifests at stage #4 or #5.
Maharishi AyurVeda offers a systematic way to recognise the earlier, subtler stages of a disease before the disease manifests by using Nadi Vigyan – Pulse Diagnosis.
By feeling the pulse, a fully trained and experienced Maharishi AyurVeda health practitioner can detect, in many cases, a disease before it arises. Treating imbalances before they manifest is much easier than treating the manifested disease.
Ama – the accumulation of toxins and metabolic waste – creates blocks in the channels of communication, the Shrotas.
Mr Pirc concluded his presentation by outlining how various Ayurveda routines, guidelines and treatments can reduce the levels of Ama in our physiology.
