AYURVEDA :
Health is the axis on which human life revolves. A holistic approach, taking the body, mind and spirit as a whole, able to correct whatever is amiss- the sages of ancient India knew this to be the only solution to the problems of health. it is said that the lord Creator Brahma blessed the humanity with the Brahma-Samhita. A part of the fourth Veda, the Atharva, it is a treatise on the way of the nature towards perfect health. It contains the eight divisions of the Ayur-Veda. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit Word meaning the "Science of life". Many herbs used in Ayur-Veda are fabled to induce eternal youth and even raise the dead to life (like the Mruthasanjeevani mentioned in the Ramayana) Charaka, Susrutha et-al, who lived in the sixth century B.C. wrote treatises based on which the present day Ayurveda has grown as a medical and clinical discipline. Defying the onslaught of the modern medical system inthe last century, Ayurveda has retained its ageless appeal-mysterious, even magical-but efficacious.
Stress is rapidly becoming an all pervasive ailment. It needs more than the superficial treatment given to it. The Pancha Karma or the five types of `sodhana’ therapy is more than a cure for stress and strain. By eliminating the waste products (free radicals) from the body, it tones up the nerves, improves the circulatory system and has an additional effect of rejuvenation and increasing vitality. Stress vanishes and the body relaxes in tranquility. It cures as well as prevents degenerative diseases, nervous and mental disorders, paralytic conditions, different types of rheumatism, dyspepsia, diabetes, obesity etc. Kerala has contributed in a great measure to the development of this therapy.
We are living in times of change. The present day life style is pulling man away from the tender caressing and care of nature. People are now weaker than their ancestors used to be, and they are more prone to diseases. Here in this Island, we offer you treatments based on our ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga.
