Kerala Ayurveda

Ayurveda India

India Ayurveda India Kerala Ayurveda is an ancient philosophy based on a deep understanding of eternal truths about the human body, mind and spirit. It is the science of living, developed meticulously by the devout 'Rishis' of ancient India. This is the study based on the fundamental principles of 'Panchabootha' [earth ,water ,air , fire and space] existing in nature and inside man. Ayurveda teaches that the body and mind are one entity with gross and subtle manifestations. Our thoughts have physical effects and that disorders of the body cause psychological effects. There are no isolated phenomena as something purely physical or totally psychological. The two are intertwined. All matter, organic and inorganic, exists according to a set of predetermined laws: there is little anarchy in nature. Animals live according to a set of rules, which promote their healthy survival, and they reproduce in the correct season. The lives of plants follow a pattern that ensures that leaves, flowers and fruits grow in a specific order and no other. Similarly if humans do not live their lives according to the right principles, and those lives are disordered and chaotic, instead of calmness and serenity, it will result in disease.

The word Ayurveda is composed of two Sanskrit terms - Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge. Therefore Ayurveda means the knowledge of life or science of life. It is defined as the science, through which one can obtain knowledge about the useful and harmful ways of life, happy and miserable types of life, conditions that lead to the above types of life, as well as, the very nature of life. Ayurvedic medicines are prepared from natural and organic materials making it the only totally eco-friendly medical science now known. Ayurvedic rejuvenation programme comprises mainly of Pizhichil, Kizhi, Dhara, Vasthi and Avisnanam. According to Ayurvedic medicine, human body consists of three primary life forces or biological humors, which are Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. These three doshas are called the tridoshas. A balance among these life forces is essential for proper health. Any imbalance among the tridoshas causes a state of unhealthiness or disease. Ayurvedic system says that this imbalance is the effect of the constant reaction of the internal environment of body to the changes in external environment. It is only required that we bring back normalcy to the balance of these doshas, to bring back the state of healthiness.
