Ayurveda



Kerala, the tropical backwater-laced state on southern India’s Malabar Coast, is Ayurveda’s original birthplace. Ayurveda – which means ‘life knowledge’ in Sanskrit – taps into 5,000 years of age-old science. Its wisdom is rooted in a lifestyle that champions a holistic, preventative approach to healing, with a focus on the doshas, or constitutional types – vata (air), pitta (fire) and kapha (earth).

The word ‘Ayurveda’, derived from Ayuso Veda, in simple, is the science of health. This discipline is not confined to the health problems and their treatments concerning just human beings but also includes all other living beings such as birds, animals, plants and trees. In short, all issues concerned with health related to veterinary and agricultural sciences are also part of this integrated practice life science.
The practice of Ayurveda has a long past and its roots can be traced back to pre-historic times. The remnants obtained from Harappa and Mohenjodaro include Ayurvedic medicines which reveal that even at the time of Indus Valley civilization (4-3 millennium B.C.) Ayurvedic medicines were in use. References to Ayurveda may also be observed in the ancient Vedas and the Puranas. Among the Vedas it is the Atharvaveda, which gives an exhaustive treatment of Ayurveda. Early inscriptions like those of Ashoka (3rd century B.C.) too indicate the popularity of this medicinal system.

The Tradition in Kerala Ayurveda, the Indian system of medicine, has been extremely popular in the southern Indian State of Kerala for centuries. Practitioners of Ayurveda in Kerala continue to be familiar with all its eight main branches-Shalya (surgery), Shalakya (cure of diseases of the eyes, ears, etc. by using shalakas or sharp instruments), Kayachikitsa (cure of diseases affecting the whole body), Bhutavidya (psychotherapy), Kaumarabhritya (pediatrics), Agadatantra (science of antidotes to poisons), and Rasayanatantra (preparation and application of elixirs) . In contemporary Kerala too, all these branches of Ayurveda continue to be popularly employed and the advent of allopathic medicines has not really diminished the popularity of Ayurvedic treatment.

Traditionally, the science of Ayurvedic knowledge was passed on within families or in guru-shishya parampara and therefore, succeeding experts of renowned practitioners may be found in various parts of Kerala. You can try many treatments all over the globe, but for the full-on experience, nothing beats a health-boosting trip to Kerala to fine-tune body, mind and soul.
