Ayurveda evolved around 600 BC in India. This new system of medicine stressed on the prevention of body ailments in addition to curing them. Followed by the Dravidians and Aryans alike, Ayurveda has been practised ever since. Today, it's 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. Making it the natural way to refresh yourself, eliminate all toxic imbalances from the body and thus regain resistance and good health.
Kerala, the land of Ayurveda
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.
Monsoon, the ideal time for rejuvenation
Traditional texts reveal that the monsoon is the best season for rejuvenation programmes. The atmosphere remains dust-free and cool, opening the pores of the body to the maximum, making it most receptive to herbal oils and therapy.
Ayurveda started more than 5000 years ago. There are glimpses of Ayurvedic treatments and medicines in various ancient scripts.The word Ayurveda is derived from two words - Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge or science. It literally means knowledge about life.
The formation of living organisms is described in the principles of Ayurveda.The focus is on obtaining a balance among the Tridhoshas, i.e. Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. Illness is the result of imbalance of the Tridhoshas.
Like modern medicine, Ayurveda is also divided into several important branches of treatment dealing with various human aspects. Each branch follows various methods for regenerating the equilibrium of body, mind and soul.
