Kerala Ayurveda Treatment

Ayurveda

Around 600 BC Ayurveda was evolved 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 practiced 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 also the individual as a whole. Making it the natural way to refresh you, eliminate all toxic imbalances from the body and thus regain resistance and good health.

Kerala AyurvedaKerala'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 that practices this system of medicine with absolute dedication.
