5 Reasons Why You Need Ayurveda This Monsoon
Ayurveda which literally means knowledge of life, is the well-known healing technique learned and perfected thousands of years ago in India. This science of maintaining a perfect balance of mind, body and soul holds great relevance in today’s world, providing solutions to 5 of your most pressing problems.
Over days and months you ingest toxins and pollutants that accumulate in your system. When this exceeds a certain level it gives rise to symptoms like allergies, body pains, swellings, depression and even auto immune disorders. Ayurveda attempts to mobilize the toxins in your body and eliminate them through channels of cleansing.
Ayurveda boosts immunity with a special medicinal drink called ‘Oushada kanji’ which is prepared with herbs proven to enhance and strengthen the immune system.This taken along with the prescribed diet works to boost immunity.

Ayurvedic massage therapies are well known and will improve circulation and increase oxygen and nutrient level in the tissues to rejuvenate and refresh the body. Body massage with medicated oil is the most important part of the treatment. The medicinal oil and kind of massage are customised and selected according to the physical conditions of the person.
Choornaswedam, Pathrapotalaswedam, NjavaraKizhi, Pizhichi, Sirodhara,Nasyam (nasal administration of medicines), etc are some of the most effective rejuvenating & therapeutic massage treatments.
If you spot early signs of aging, Ayurveda is your one true answer. Ayurveda anti-aging benefits work on symptoms like greying of hair, dry and wrinkled skin, dark circles below the eyes, etc. The ongoing process of aging needs to be slowed down when the signs of physical and mental deterioration seem to commence. At this time, Ayurveda anti-aging treatments along with the right lifestyle, modifications of diet, exercise, and normal sleep could add years to your life.

A lesser known fact is that MONSOON is the best time to pursue Ayurvedic treatments.The human body is more receptive to Ayurvedic medicines in monsoon than at any other time of the year. The body absorbs anything applied to it, quickly and efficiently during this period.
The Tridoshas. [PC : The Ayurveda Experience]
This is the season where physical immunity of a person is at its lowest and this low immunity leads to the aggravation of Tridoshas (loosely translated to Energetic Forces) namely vata, pitha, kapha. It is the ideal time to flush out all impurities from the body and bring back the immune system to normal.
This special use of the monsoon month (traditionally called Karkidaka) was noticed by ancient Ayurveda Acharyas and they suggested preventive and curative treatments for this season called Karkidaka Chikitsa.
These treatments are offered in their full authenticity at Kumarakom Lake Resort, Kottyam in Kerala from July to October.
