Marina Lovrek – Croatia,France

The wisdom is something, which someone is born with; others have no choice but to get it through their experience. As a child, I was always interested in things, which are not segments of western living standards. Even through the experience of my family I was able to see the essence of western medicine and their only general and crude approach to human body. I knew from the very beginning I wouldn’t be able to be like that, on the contrary I was much more oriented to the wise people who were aware of
the power and efficiency of nature considering the healing of various diseases and disorders. Unfortunately the most of that old knowledge got lost through centuries. My doctor games ended up with my education. My interest in human body and its functioning was increasing day by day. I entered the cosmetology programme at medical secondary school because it is not a rigid medical education; it includes many other fields too. During my secondary education I first met the oriental cosmetic and healing techniques. Then I definitely realised I would never be just an ordinary cosmetician and masseur. After finishing my secondary education I got soon the opportunity to learn about Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbal remedies and manual healing techniques including the Tui-Na massage. I also finished the Tui-Na massage education programme. While working at one cosmetic studio, I was
becoming aware of the fact, that my knowledge and skills were not used in efficient manner, although I was always trying to advise my clients about the importance of healthy nutrition, physical activity and their inner condition, in regard to their external appearance. Actually, I felt lack of holistic approach. I was still trying to improve and broaden my knowledge and meanwhile I also finished the manual lymphatic drainage course by Dr Vodder and successively worked at The Policlinic of Plastic and General
Surgery “Barbel” in Zagreb. At the Centre of Acupuncture and cosmetics I first met Ms Tina Carić, who was dealer of many Italian cosmetic brands in Croatia but also a big lover and supporter of TM and Ayurveda. Our acquaintance led to our mutual cooperation and to the long term path of my life and professional career. At the Ganeša centre I worked from 2002 until 2013 and in 2005 the Centre started cooperation with Dr Suresh Swarnapuri, which brought immense knowledge of this ancient doctrine into
my life and professional practice. Thanks to Ayurveda I managed to find everything I had missed before, all superficialities and gaps disappeared and I found out that the Ayurveda has immense power and profundity, which are the best way to lose even the most complicated problems in a very practical and simple manner. So, this would be my story on Ayurveda, it was, and it still is, worth to listen to wise people, to which I am very thankful. This goes especially to Dr Suresh Swarnapuri. The cooperation with
him is continued nowadays at the “Ahimsa” centre in Paris, which is owned and guided by Ms Eleonore de Croy. I chose this path in order to make possible through Ayurveda and other natural techniques, that people understand the power of human body considering the self healing approach as well as the importance of noticing its signals and supporting nature, which is always our spring of health and never our enemy!
