The first online Open Talk of the Holistic Health Centre took place on May 16th.
Dr N.G. Kostopoulos spoke on the basic concepts of Ayurveda such as the five elements which exist in the body and around us and their relationship with the five senses. He explained in a scientific way the energies of the body (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and identified the energies of the mind (Sattva, Rajas, Tamas) and why they are important. He referred to the unique constitution of each human which may be either in balance (Prakruti) or out of balance (Vikruti). The doctor also explained what is physical and psychological health and talked about why stress has acquired such dimensions in modern times.
Finally Dr Kostopoulos made reference to Thermal Microcautery, a technique applied by the Holistic Health Centre explaining the way in which it helps cure migraines and long term pain.
The audience which attended the seminar from many countries asked questions on the above topics.
