la pura Healthy Lifestyle Talk at Hiltl Zurich
With Dr Karin Stengg from la pura resort Austria
Dr Karin Stengg
The other week we were invited to a really interesting discussion about healthy living and anti-ageing which took place at the Hiltl Akademie in Zurich.
After a healthy ginger and lemon drink on arrival we mingled with the other guests before a talk by Dr Karin Stengg of la pura women’s health resort in Austria about the key things one should be aware of as a woman in order to “age youthfully”. Healthy nutrition is obviously one of the key components of such a lifestyle and after the talk we dined on a beautiful selection of Hiltl Cuisine.
The food was delicious and healthy and it was one of the points that Dr Karin Stengg made quite clearly – as you age, nutritious food becomes more and more important.
However that doesn’t mean you ignore desserts entirely 🙂 – the chocolate dessert pictured, served with a mango mousse was full of healthy nutrients and was also entirely vegetarian.
The key thing is all about balance – eating good quality nutritious food and maintaining adequate exercise – and a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, with the stressful lives we all lead these days, this is not always possible. That is why la pura resort offers a spa and retreat with an abundance of programs to help women achieve relaxation and experience a healthy break from their day to day lives.
Before we got to taste the food, however, we took part in a number of tests to check both our oral health and our agility and balance. The balance tests were quite difficult (!) and I do realise I need to work on my balance! The oral tests were to give an indication of the levels of inflammation in our mouths – as this can often be an indicator of something more serious.
However, Dr Stengg also made the point that women’s bodies are different to men’s and the la pura resort focuses entirely on the needs of women; to enable them to become healthier, fitter and also to address any cosmetic requirements they may have.
La pura is based in Gars am Kamp, Austria, and treats only women. As well as being a wellness hotel, they also offer custom-made programs to suit all sorts of women’s needs. A four-star superior resort, la pura women’s health resort combines the best of health and wellness treatments with top quality cosmetic procedures. La pura claims to be Europe’s only health resort just for women and is situated in the idyllic “Waldviertel” area just one hour’s drive from Vienna.
Equipped with a full team of doctors, therapists and cosmeticians, la pura offers everything from the latest insights in gender-specific medicine for women, to a luxurious wellness centre where you can re-charge your batteries.
