Going back to the Source and relaxing in Mother Nature's lap will be a blessing for practice and healing. Ayurveda, a Sanskrit word meaning the knowledge for prolonging life, is a 5000 year-old holistic medical system, widely practiced in India and especially in Kerala. Ayurveda assumes the fundamental sameness of self and nature and as such it is a sister science to yoga, stemming from the same period of Vedic philosophy. It places great importance on the harmony of mind, body and spirits and acknowledges the psychosomatic causes behind many diseases. Ayurveda looks at the whole patient: disease is regarded as a symptom of imbalance, so its the imbalance that is treated, not the disease.

Imbalances are typically treated with herbal remedies for treatment of individual ailments. This commonly involves the application of oils or ingestion of special prepared medicines. Traditionally, strictly vegetarian diets are advised for long-term benefits. Those who seek out qualified places for lengthier purification regimes are often full of praise for the efficacy of these ancient methods.
