Ayurveda in Kerala – Treatment & Rejuvenation for Mind & Body
Ayurveda, the traditional science of healing the human body is derived from the Sanskrit words ‘Ayu’ and ‘Veda’ which means “Knowledge of life”. Having based their foundation on such a wide premise, the practitioners of this science were deemed to be bearers of immense knowledge of the ways to maintain good health and fight illnesses and diseases. Ayurveda, therefore, focuses on the holistic development of the human body and deals with both the mind and the body.
Ayurveda in God’s Own Country
Born in India around 5000 years ago, Ayurveda has flourished immensely in the verdant and congenial landscape of Kerala. Incidentally, Kerala is the only state that practices Ayurveda as the principal mode of treatment to cure diseases.
Benefits of Ayurveda for the mind and the body
The methodologies and nuances of this science of life indicate that Ayurveda does not merely restrict itself to curing diseases. Ayurveda involves practices that, if adopted can also help to prevent diseases from occurring. Ayurvedic therapies, massages and herbal oils help the body in controlling irregularities and maintaining stability.
Ayurveda is a nature based healing system. It draws from the rich resources that nature offers to ensure good physical and mental health. Therefore, all its herbal medicines are non-toxic and do not have any harmful side effect and is absolutely safe for everyone.
Ayurveda has treatment methodologies defined for a wide range of diseases, namely, diabetes, flu, heart disease, hypertension, immune problems, allergies, insomnia, nervous disorders, obesity, skin problems, ulcers, inflammation, asthma, anxiety, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, colitis, constipation as well as depression. In fact, it is also well-geared to tackle chronic conditions or those related to stress or metabolic disorders. Ayurvedic treatment for Acne is a great favourite amongst those who suffer from it.
Ayurvedic Therapies for Treatment and Rejuvenation
Ayurveda is not merely a treatment. It focuses its energies on helping individuals understand the secrets of healthy living which will ensure their prolonged well-being. Consequently, it has designed treatments and therapy patterns that help to inculcate the culture of goodness in their life and enhance its quality. Some of these have been highlighted below:
- The Panchkarma therapy helps to purify the body, mind and soul by cleansing the body toxins. Derived from the Sanskrit word meaning five actions, or five treatments, the Panchkarma is a fivefold therapy, which involves daily massaging with medicated oils to cleanse the body of all the toxic waste that it accumulates owing to any disease or poor nutrition. It is tailored depending on the needs of the specific individual availing the treatment. The Panchkarma is highly effective in strengthening the immunity system, relieve stress on the mind and body, improve brain function and helps to revive energy and vitality of the body.
- Abyngaa, a herbal and aromatic oil massage therapy is extremely effective in improving blood circulation, improving sleep, enhancing mental alertness and calming tired nerves.

This helps to reduce hair fall, provides relief to head, neck, eyes, ears, nose and throat that were affected due to ailments and even helps to increase an individual’s memory.
