Pazeider Healing Garden - What does it mean?

The term "healing garden" has been used since the beginning of the 1980s for areas that have a positive effect on the well-being of most people through truly green vegetation such as meadows, flowers or the natural element of water. Every person senses where they feel particularly well and that they prefer to spend time in certain places rather than others. This is based on pure intuition. The effect of nature on the human psyche, however, has now been scientifically proven. Try it out. Come to the Pazeider Healing Garden Biohotel in the midst of almost endless nature, apple trees and vines, the babbling of the Adige river and our own spring.

About our history

The knowledge that nature is good for us humans has existed since time immemorial, even if it is not scientifically based. The positive effect was a given for our ancestors. They knew how to use and apply nature as a resource in many ways, especially in healing practice. In China and India, countries with one of the oldest surviving traditional medicines, the inclusion of the social and natural environment in a doctor's diagnostic and therapeutic work is still a matter of course. The term Feng Shui is several thousand years old and describes the interaction of energy flows between humans and nature. For other peoples, too, such as the Egyptians, the Celts or the ancient Germanic peoples, knowledge about the influence on health was anchored in certain places and places. The Egyptians were great connoisseurs of medicinal herbs. Aristotle (4th century BC), Galen (2nd century AD), Avicenna (11th century AD) and Paracelsus (16th century AD) are still valid today as the most important doctors who further developed this knowledge. As early as the 6th century in Europe, every monastery had its own herb garden to grow raw materials for work and medicinal purposes. The earliest apothecary gardens appeared in the 16th century, and the first university garden was opened in Oxford in 1621. Unfortunately, from the beginning of the 20th century, new technologies, knowledge about bacteria and infections and the development of large cities meant that green spaces and gardens gradually disappeared to a large extent and a lot of knowledge seemed to be lost.
