  3. Greetings from Shreehareeyam !

    The ideal geographic location of Kerala and its salubrious climate has made external purification and rejuvenation therapies most effective for treatment of many psychosomatic disorders.
    The high humidity in Kerala helps to open up the body pores and the medicinal oils used in massaging get easily absorbed into the body there by increasing the effectiveness.
    Our Treatments are especially effective in paralysis, rheumatism, arthritis, spondilosis, hysteria and various other ailments. The classical therapies are also made use of for devising new treatment modalities to deal with several ailments of the modern man such as Parkinsonism, Motor neurone diseases, Cancer etc.

    The fundamentals of Ayurveda being practised and taught in Kerala are not different from those of the rest of the country, in their essence and philosophy. But in the present days, there indeed is a notable difference in certain aspects of Kerala tradition of Ayurveda. This difference pertains to the importance given to Vagbhata’s Ashtangahridayam in preference to other classical texts by Kerala traditional physicians, the uninterrupted history of practising the classical panchakarma therapies in all their authentic fidelity, the innovative development of the reputed Kerala preparatory therapies and finally the wide variety of exclusive herbal based formulations overshadowing the use of metal and mineral based drugs.

    The development of Ayurveda in Kerala is particularly noted for its origins in non-brahminical traditions even before the entry of classical Ayurveda in the early centuries of the Christian era. These two streams subsequently blended so well that it gave a unique strength to the health care tradition of Kerala. Selected few brahmin households, named generally as Ashtavaidyas, were bestowed with the responsibility of maintaining the Ayurvedic tradition by practising it as a health care service as well as by teaching its principles in the unique gurukula tradition. The traditional practitioners of Ayurveda considered Ashtangahridaya as a primary text. Several commentaries were written by experts here. More importantly, new texts were written in Kerala both in Malayalam and Sanskrit. Sahasrayogam, Chikilsamanjari, Vaidyamanorama are just a few examples. These and similar other Kerala texts still remain sources of very useful information on formulation, medicinal plants and therapies.
    Another very important contribution by Kerala physicians is the continued practice and enrichment of the panchakarma therapy. Even when they became defunct in the rest of the country due to socio-political reasons, Kerala retained this therapeutic wealth in all its pristine essence. Texts were written here on its practical aspects. More importantly, the famous Kerala special therapies were evolved by the practitioners here. They are essentially preparatory in nature. Dhara, mukkippizhichil, navarakkizhi, etc are typical examples. As the practice of Ayurveda expanded in popular acceptance in the recent past, these treatment modalities have also become more prevalent.
    Accommodation is also available at Shreehareeyam on single & double occupancy basis with a nominal rate for patients.

    Sirodhara, Pizhichil, Navarakizhi, Thalapothichil, Pachakizhi and Podikizhi are some of the kerala special ayurvedic procedures.

    There are several unique herbal formulations described in Kerala texts. Many of them have now received national level acclaim and they are included in the Ayurvedic Formulary of India. One important aspect of Kerala formulations is that the stress is more on herbal components rather than on metals or minerals. There is also the history of Ayurvedic physicians developing some areas of specialisations like paediatrics, ophthalmology, martial therapy, etc.

    The Panchakarma is a form of treatment in Ayurveda where treatment is done by using various procedures like massage, steam, medicated enemas etc. This treatment constitutes of five basic forms of treatment each of which is known as a karma. These five basic procedures are
    • Medicated puking (vamana) to remove excess kapha
    • Therapeutic purgation (viracana) to clear excess pitta
    • Medicated clyster (vasti) to eject excess vata
    • Nasal drops or snuffs (nasya) for diseases of the head & neck
    • Bloodletting (raktamokshana) in case of blood disorders
    Ayurveda states that physical and mental diseases occur due to the vitation of somatic doshas vata, pitta and kapha and due to mental doshas rajas and tamas. Panchakarma is a process in which these accumulated substances are removed from the body by direct intervention.
    Due to improper food habits like excessive eating, eating too many cold foods, hard to digest foods, remaining in a cold environment for a long time without proper precaution etc leads to accumulation of excessive phlegm in the body. This is called as kapha in Ayurveda. The process by which this excessive phlegm is removed is called as vaman. The excessive eating of sour or bitter foods, too much hot foods, traveling in the sun or remaining in the sun for a longer period of time results in pitta accumulation. The excessive pitta is removed by the process virechan.
    The vata gets accumulated in the body, due to excessive traveling, excessive physical work, and eating dry foods. The excessive vata is removed by the process basti from the body. When any of the three doshas get accumulated in the head region it is removed by nasal cavity by the process nasya. The raktamokshan process is used to remove the excess of any of the doshas from the blood.
    Thus, panchakarma’s purificatory therapies balance out the three doshas, acting both as a curative and a preventive measure.
    Please find details of the program:
    Panchakarma is a very powerful and very nurturing method for balancing, detoxifying and restoring the human body. Panchakarma has been an essential component of Ayurveda’s 5000 years of continuous practice.
    Panchakarma is intended to be a time when one stops the routine of daily life and take time for one. It is a moment to unwind and release long held toxins, worries and memories. This is an opportunity for one to create optimal good health in all areas of life. A time to reflect on life and determine if the life we are living is truly good for us and if it is not, a time to change our direction to one more positive.
    The various benefits of panchakarma are:
    • Helps in removing accumulated toxins
    • Removes all body aches and pains
    • Increases energy
    • Improves strength of digestive ability
    • Anti-aging and longevity
    • Boosts immunity
    • Provides calmness to the mind, body and soul
    • Prevents various chronic health problems
    • Provides clarity to the thoughts and mind.
