Kerala Ayurveda

Ayurvedic Treatments and Therapies
Ayurveda says: "You are what you eat". Hence, a lot of emphasis is laid on diet regime. Since natural herbs form the base of every medicine, the scope of side-effects is completely ruled out. Which, if compared to the allopathic medicines, otherwise subjected to side-effects and fatal outcomes incase of wrong-treatment, would seem a veritable respite. The treatment is basically two-fold: Samana and Sodhana. Samana has oral medicines for minor diseases, while Sodhana is very extensive and specially recommended for those with chronic ailments. The latter aims at transforming the sick body completely to its original state. Kerala's Ayurvedic therapies are unique and special in their own way, and somewhat different from the rest of India. The 'Kerayurveda' specialities are: Pizhichil (oil Bath), Navarakizhi (rice bundle massage), Ilakizhi (leaf bundle massage) and so on, recommended for ailments like acute infective poly neuritis, spinal problems, motorneuron disease, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis, paralysis, facialpalsygastric or peptic ulcers and so on. Other diseases targeted and cured are arthritis, paralysis, obesity, sinusitis, migraine, premature aging, skin ailments etc. Traditional texts reveal that the monsoon is the best season for rejuvenation programs.

Now, this one called the 'sirodhara treatment' is recommended to feel what it means to have an Ayurvedic-high! About 5 to 6 liters of warm herbal oil (selected according to the body constitution) are poured steadily onto your forehead ('third eye') followed by a massage that is believed to retard the aging process (by arresting the degeneration of cells) and drains all stress out of the body. So ritualistic is the whole process that it would feel as if your body is being worshiped while you lie there in your birthday suit. Note that in strict accordance with Indian piety, you will be assigned a same-sex therapist. Another therapy, called Thirummal, consumes comparatively lesser time (25-30 min) and leaves you bursting with energy, that actually manages to last for several days. Quick therapies for pimples, sagged skin, hair fall, glowing complexion, fatigue, poor eye sight work wonders, you will have to try once, to believe.
