Nutrition – One essential key to health

One essential key to health lies in a balanced diet. Correct eating habits – when and how we eat – help our bodies make the most of the nutrients contained in our diet. Our goal is to strengthen the performance of the digestive system. This basic principle was first recognised by F.X. Mayr and was further perfected by VIVA, the Centre for Modern Mayr Medicine. It stands for a balanced interplay of natural healing methods, combined with scientifically recognised therapies. VIVA means: finding your biological rhythm!

Tips from the Chef

„Careful with hot spices like dried ginger, garlic, chili and curry as they can dry out your lungs and cause dry cough and nose as well as a sore throat.
Ginger tea is the perfect drink to get rid of chilliness or a beginning cold, so that your body´s defenses are getting stronger!.“


Give yourself the last draw with the seasonal pure red vegetables! Beetroot, pumpkin, carrot, plum, chestnut and eggplant are providing us a lot of vitamins and minerals to strengthen our immune system and to get over the hard winter!
Especially soups, stews, compotes and hot dishes from the oven are supporting us especially to keep the warmth from inside.
