About AyurvedaThe origin of Ayurveda is attributed to Vedas, sacred texts of ancient India. This teaching first appears more than five thousand years ago at the times of Arian and Indo-European tribes. Ayurveda theory evolved fr om a deep understanding of creation. The philosophy of Ayurveda teaches a series of conceptual systems characterized by balance and disorder, health and disease .To be healthy, harmony in one's life must exist between the purpose of healing, thoughts, feelings and physical conditions.
The interest to Ayurveda in modern society could be explained very easily: Ayurveda never loses sight of the whole, while modern western medicine remains primarily concerned with parts of the system. Ayurvedic treatment does not mean addressing the main symptoms, it removes the root cause of disease and gives permanent relief.
Ayurvedic treatment is mainly comprised of powders, tablets, medicated oils, herbs etc prepared fr om only natural ingredients. Along with medicine, in the management of lifestyle diseases. Ayurveda also offers various regimens such as dietary therapy, massages, yoga therapy and special programs. All of those techniques are very effective and powerful under proper and systematic use. All medical programs and preventive procedures in our center are customized individually for each patient. In Kerala we do believe that it is very important to find the best healthcare provider for you and your family who will share your perspective on health matters and give you right guidance and recommendations.
It is central to Ayurveda that the functioning of all creation can be understood as the interactions between three fundamental energy complexes - Doshas . According to Ayurveda, all matter is composed of five basic elements which exhibit the properties of earth, water, fire, wind and ether. Those elements should be interpreted in the context of their inherent qualities, not in the literal meaning. The three energies are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. All of them have physical expression in the body. Each Doshas has specific functions. When our Doshas are operating in a normal balanced way we are healthy and resilient, and we fall sick when there is an imbalance and disproportionate ratio in Doshas. Although, the balance in Doshas doesn't mean their equivalence, it is extremely rare to find someone with all Doshas in equal proportions. Most of the time a person has a predominant Doshas in body construction, some people have dual Dosha constitution, wh ere two Doshas are equally predominant.
A person's Prakriti is the inherent balance of the three Doshas at the moment of their creation. Prakriti does not change during our life time in contrast to Vikriti that is the current condition of Doshas in human's body. Due to the deviation from the Prakriti of the human's body, diseases take place in individuals. The concept of Prakriti is very useful in predicting an individual 's susceptibility to a particular disease, prognosis of that illness and selection of individual therapies. An Ayurvedic physician determines the constitutional peculiarities and gives certain recommendations for each patient individually. The doctor also considers such factors as weather, season, time of the day, an individual profession and etc. Considering all those factors are essential when it comes to specifying an appropriate way of therapy.
In Ayurveda, true health begins with balancing all Doshas which could be archived by the ultimate mind-body healing experience for detoxifying the body- Panchakarma ( five actions). Panchakarma is an Ayurvedic whole-being cleanse, focused on drawing toxins from deep tissues wh ere they have accumulated due to stress, poor diet and the powerful effects of modern life. It is one of the most effective healing modality in Ayurvedic Medicine.
