Learn about Ayurveda

Drawing from ancient Indian healing wisdom Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient system of health care that is native to the Indian subcontinent. Known as the ‘mother of medicine’ since Ayurvedic principles have influenced the development of Chinese, Arabic, Greek and Roman schools of medical thought, modern western medicine has adopted some Ayurvedic concepts, as well as more recently developed therapies such as aromatherapy, homeopathy and naturopathy. Ayurveda is a complete way of life. It is not only about treating sickness – it is based on preventing disease and enhancing health, longevity and vitality. Ayurveda aims to achieve harmony and balance. This is attained without drugs or invasive treatments. Diet, meditation, gentle exercise such as yoga, herbal medicines and physical therapies (such as massage) are the main methods employed.

Ayurveda in Kerala - Kerala’s equable climate, natural abundance of forests (with a wealth of herbs and medicinal plants), and the cool monsoon season (June - November) are best suited for Ayurveda’s curative and restorative packages. In fact, today, Kerala is the only state in India which practises this system of medicine with absolute dedication.

History of Ayurveda - Ayurveda evolved around 600 BC in India and was founded upon a medicinal approach of preventing body ailments, whilst curing them. Ayurveda today is a unique, indispensable branch of medicine - a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body’s humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance. Ayurveda believes in the treatment of not just the affected part, but the individual as a whole, ensuring it is the natural way to a refreshed soul, free of toxic imbalances - a key to better health and resistance to disease.
