But what is Ayurveda ?
Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.
It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
Even if one of these elements is not balanced one can fell “ill”! Ayurveda with a combination of organic and herbal supplements and cures attacks the roots of the problem so that the elimination or cure is total.
Naturally anything herbal takes time to assimilate. It is quite common to have massages and cures that last 2 to 3 weeks at least with a change in one’s lifestyle.
The science of Ayurveda included organic or green or natural substances almost 3000 years ago! As more and more people are sensitized to the chemicals that are used today in our food and drink it is only normal for Ayurveda to become popular again. This ancient art was mastered in Kerala mostly.
We would like to present few of our favourite properties enable to provide you quality treatments in an amazing environment…
Because our purpose is to initiate you to the Goodness of Ayurveda…
Harivihar(1): Housed in a Manor that belonged to the Royal Family that ruled Northern Kerala, it was originally built in 1850! Opened to guests for the last 15 years, Harivihar has been painstakingly restored and the Kerala experience is a great way to relax or cure oneself in the medicinal system called Ayurveda. Taking a dip in the knowledge of the Vedas, Ayurveda treats the root causes of distress and not the symptoms itself. The cure is almost sure provided the glimpse of your body, mind and soul is nurtured by a diet that is simple. A complete change in lifestyle is strongly recommended for log lasting peace and HariVihar remains one of the more serious places for your Auyurvedic cures. If you don’t have time for a full cure, perhaps a one week rejuvenation package will give you and insight into the philosophy and practice of Ayurveda at Harivihar.
MannaasVeedu(5): A 3 hour ride only from Kochi International Airport, MannaasVeedu runs The Healing Touch Ayurveda Yoga Retreat there. There are sufficient cures here that usually last 14-28 days but the hotel also has agreed to offer a one week rejuvenation package if booked through Bloo Nimboo Voyages only. Offering authentic and high quality Ayurvedic protocols with recommended diets, MannaasVeedu touched our heart for being one the serious resorts for Ayurveda. Yoga is very much part of the healing process here.
