At the Prama Wellness Center, we believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. By integrating various natural health systems, without compromising the system’s integrity, a new and often more effective therapeutic value system can emerge. This, we think, is the secret behind the Prama Wellness Method’s success—creating holistic change and dynamic balance through the integration of different wellness approaches.
The main benefits of the Prama Wellness Method are that it:
- cleans and rejuvenates the body
- boosts the immune system
- prevents imbalances and illness
- reduces stress
- calms and strengthens the mind,
- helps maintains long-term wellness
Here are some of the features of our program in more detail:
- Plant-based food:
Both scientific studies as well as the lifestyles of the longest living people in the world, such as those living in the Blue Zones, have clearly demonstrated that a nutrient dense, plant- based diet is the most optimum diet for human life. A plant-based diet is also the most environmentally sustainable.
- Juice cleansing:
Studies by Dr. Valter Longo have shown that intermittent fasting, including juice cleansing, help improve the digestive system, flush out toxins from the bloodstream and re-energize your body. All major holistic health systems teach that cleansing the body of toxins is the most important first step in restoring health.
- Ayurvedic lifestyle modifications:
The second most important step in building a healthy body and mind is to modify the lifestyle that created our problems in the first place. This is where Ayurveda comes in. There is perhaps no better system in creating personalized lifestyle changes than through a personalized use of Ayurvedic principles.
- Therapeutic yoga:
The yoga we practice here at Prama is slow and gentle. It helps regulating the breath and bringing the body and mind into a state of peace and relaxation. Slow yoga is becoming increasingly popular as an antidote to our stressful lifestyle.
- Mindfulness and mantra meditation:
Mindfulness meditation is a time-tested method for reducing stress and increasing our willpower. Combined with mantra meditation, one may dive into deeper meditative states.
- Stress management:
According to Dr. Andrew Weil, there are two main reasons for poor health: stress and bad lifestyle choices. This concurs with our own observation. Therefore, learning how to cope with stress is key to long term personal transformation.
- Personal Consultation:
One of the unique offerings at Prama Wellness is a personal consultation during which we will help you design an individualized lifestyle program. When you combine this consultation with all the rest you will learn during our programs, you will be well equipped to adopt your own integrative lifestyle program at home.
