Ayurvedic Therapies in Kerala

Ayurvedic resorts and Ayurvedic centres in Kerala are attracting hundreds of thousands of patients and tourists from across the globe. The time-tested science the medicine, Ayurveda provides complete cure for numerous chronic ailments. Foreign nationals from far and wide arrive in Kerala to avail the benefits of Ayurveda rejuvenation programs and Ayurvedic therapies. According to Ayurveda, a disequilibrium of the ‘doshas’ leads to different kinds of diseases and sufferings. Today, Ayurvedic medicine, on the grounds of its effectiveness and curing power, is considered to be a safer and better option than modern medicine. Many government approved Ayurvedic medicine courses have been introduced in Kerala to prepare more and more Ayurvedic experts in the country.

The Basic Concept
The age-old science of Ayurveda philosophises that a human body has ‘tridoshas’ as its chief components. The ‘tridoshas’, (the three basic body elements) include ‘vatha’, ‘pitha’ and ‘kapha’. If there is any disbalance among these doshas, the body starts getting sick and catches disease. So, what actually these Ayurvedic therapies do is that they recreate the required balance among the doshas. Since these body constituents differ in proportion in different individuals, the Ayurvedic therapies or treatments also vary from person to person. In addition, Ayurveda also helps remove toxins from an individual’s body and bolsters immunity.

To make things more clear, given below is a step-by-step break up of how Ayurvedic therapies work to treat individuals in mind, body and soul.
Classifications of Ayurvedic Therapies
The medicinal science of Ayurveda can be broadly divided into ‘santarpan’ (strengthening) and ‘apatarpan’ (emaciating). The former group of therapies includes ‘rasayana’ and ‘vajikarana’. The motto of these Ayurveda therapies is to bring about peace and happiness to the individual’s mind and body as well as strengthen the immune system.

On the other hand, ‘apatarpan’ refer to therapies that work to remove body toxins and attain a balance between the doshas. Ayurvedic medicines for internal use and special cleansing therapies are included in ‘apatarpan’.

During an Ayurvedic rejuvenation therapy, a number of activities are to be performed for the complete well being of the body, mind and soul of the human being. Herbal diet, herbal medications, herbal pastes, herbal oils, herbal compresses, exercise and meditation are all essential parts of the Ayurveda therapy.

It is actually the status of the doshas which determines the kind of therapy an individual’s body requires. In case the disequilibrium of doshas has happened just recently, fasting alone can prove to be an effective resort. ‘Shamana therapy’ is performed when the disbalanced doshas have gained medium strength. In case of chronic conditions, ‘shodhana therapy’ helps in the removal of excessive doshas from the body.

Today, Kerala boasts of countless Ayurvedic resorts and Ayurveda centres. Patients can easily get in touch with these centres and consult experts of Ayurvedic medicine. After a personal meeting, Ayurvedic physicians can prescribe Ayurveda therapies that you need.
