Panchakarma is the ancient system of Ayurvedic Rejuvenation therapy designed to facilitate the removal of deep-rooted stress and toxins (vitiated doshas) in the physiology. Ayurveda recommends the cleansing of the body toxins in order to maintain well being in healthy individuals or to restore balance in those experiencing illness.
For the period of stay with us, you will be in an Ayurvedic balanced environment, away from your busy life with its patterns, stresses and responsibilities. You will begin the day with a nature walk amongst rich green Kerala countryside, followed by Yoga and meditation under expert supervision.
You will be nurtured everyday with Panchakarma tailored to your particular needs as determined by Dr VR Baji. These will include hot oil massages, herbal bolus applications, steam treatments, herbalised baths, shirodhara etc. Additional treatments such as Kati vasti, localized dhara, pouring of hot oil (pizhichil), vamanam, vasti and a variety of other procedures may be administered as appropriate for your specific health status, body constitution and medical condition.
Simple and nutritious ayurvedic vegetarian meals will be served as is indicated for specific detoxification treatment.
The schedule is designed to give everyone an abundance of free time for reflection, journaling or just enjoying the outdoors. A rough idea of a typical day will be as follows.

What to expect
During the period of treatment you can expect to feel relaxed and will be invited to rest a lot as the countless inner channels of the body opens to create feelings of freshness and renewal. Physical and emotional toxins lodged deep within the tissues, after many years are released along with their associated bodily symptoms. Time in this environment is powerful.
A Panchakarma treatment with appropriate diet, internal medicines and exercise will result in a dramatic reduction in stress and increase in energy, as well as a reduction in 6 to 8 kg weight loss, improved flexibility, reduction in aches and pain, increased vitality and a noticeable increase in mental clarity and enthusiasm for life.
Our Holistic treatment concept evolves from the following systems.
Ayurveda is a holistic healing science which comprises of two words, Ayu and Veda. Ayu means life and Veda means knowledge or science. Ayurvedic treatment does not mean suppressing the main symptoms and creating some new ones as side effects of the main treatment. It is to remove the root cause and give permanent relief.
Allopathy, also known as the Modern System of Medicine, developed in the West. A system, which treats a disease with drugs having opposite effects to existing symptoms, each successive discovery and development in Allopathy, is the result of extensive research.
Therapeutic yoga :
Yoga originated over 5,000 years ago in India, and has many forms.Yoga can be a means of achieving a sense of mental and physical well being, and is also effective in the treatment of a variety of conditions ranging from stress and high blood pressure to tendonitis and muscle strain.
Meditation is considered a form of mental therapy. Although there are many forms of meditation, such as transcendental, Zen, and mindfulness, they all have in common the calming of the mind. It can be used to help in the management of stress,chronic pain etc.
Pranic healing is based on the techniques on how to gather and be empowered by the energies of nature (air, sun ground, water, trees) It is the latest in energy healing. It was developed at the Institute of Inner Studies in the Philippines by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, a man with a rare depth of knowledge relating to the human energy field.
Naturopathy is an eclectic compilation of doctrines and practices of natural healing, as well as a way of life, and a concept of employing various practical holistic means of preventing and treating human imbalance and suffering. The capacity of the body-mind to heal itself is the central tenet of Naturopathy.
Used worldwide by over 500 million people, is based upon the "law of similars"-that is, illnesses are treated with substances which, in their natural state, are capable of producing symptoms of the illness, yet develop the power to cure those same symptoms when homeopathically prepared into their extremely dilute counterparts.
