Even before modern medicine was born, Acharya Charaka, the Father of Ayurveda, believed that diseases manifest through the shareera or physical body and manas, i.e., mind. They affect one another continually – i.e., ailments affecting the physical body eventually spill over to the mind and vice versa. Ayurvedic treatment processes not only treat the disease but also rejuvenate the mind and body.
Our Kerala Ayurveda tour packages are designed to help clients relax and refresh their bodies, mind, and soul. We’ve collaborated with the best Ayurveda resorts in God’s Own Country to create customized packages that suit your lifestyle and meet your personal needs and requirements.
Our Kerala Ayurveda holiday packages include consultation with Ayurveda doctors and yoga instructors, therapeutic massages, yoga sessions, meditation, art therapy, nature trails & more. The resorts also provide a perfect ambience to soak in nature while enjoying relaxing massages and other natural treatments. Unlike allopathy, which involves diagnosing and treating symptoms and diseases, Ayurveda is about maintaining and promoting health, thereby preventing diseases. The practice is based on the philosophy that life is sustained through mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. An imbalance or stress in any of these elements manifests as disease.

Common Kerala Ayurveda tour packages include rejuvenation packages, destress programs, relaxation packages, detoxification packages, and even weight management packages.
The treatment involves balancing the three doshas – vata, pitta, and kapha, thereby eliminating toxins that have been built up over time. Pancha means five, while karma refers to procedure. The treatment involves using five procedures: vamanam, virechanam, anuvasana, nasyam, and astapana vasti.
This destress treatment involves pouring medicated oil in a constant fine stream on the forehead to relieve stress and induce peace. Pouring oil on pressure points provides psychological and physiological effects on the mind and body. Different types of shirodhara include – dhanyamaladhara, abhyangam, pizhichil, elakizhi.
An imbalance of the three doshas could lead to fat accumulation and slow metabolism. Kerala Ayurveda tour packages for weight loss combine different techniques like vasti, elakizhi, pizhichil, kadikizhi, udwarthanam, and udgharshanam.
Diabetes is mentioned in Ayurveda scriptures as madhumeha. Ayurveda treatment packages can help manage diabetes through therapies like abhyangam, pizhichil, thakaradhara, etc.
If you constantly feel tired and exhausted, Ayurveda treatments help recharge your batteries and balance the doshas through steam therapy, herbal oil massages, shirodhara, swedanam, navakriya, elakizhi, etc.
For centuries, Indians have been incorporating the Ayurvedic way of life through and by maintaining a strict regimen of personal & social hygiene. This involves eating seasonal produce, regular oil massages, following the concept of viruddha ahara, etc. Adopting an Ayurvedic way of life is about harmoniously living our lives with appropriate diet, exercise, and mental well-being. Some of the benefits of Ayurveda include:
Unlike western medicine, where physicians treat the affected area, Ayurveda treats the body as a whole. The system acknowledges the connection between the mind, body, and soul. You can only prevent and treat illnesses by creating harmony between these elements. The basic Ayurveda principles involve three gunas – sattva, rajas, and tamas and five elements: space, fire, earth, water, and air.
Allopathy is about treating the symptoms, thereby providing instant relief. However, Ayurveda is about restoring your health by treating the underlying cause of the disease. Treatment revolves around detoxing, cleansing, strengthening, and balancing the doshas.
The adage prevention is better than cure fits aptly to Ayurvedic therapies. It is a systematic way of life that lays down daily routines called dinacharya, seasonal regimes called ritucharya, and rules for good conduct, called sadvritta. Examples of daily routine include waking up early, clearing the bowel, taking a bath every day, avoiding sleep during the day, etc. Seasonal regime includes eating light food during summer, avoiding certain foods during the monsoon, massaging the body using mustard oil in the winter, etc.
Ideally, rejuvenation treatments can be carried out all year since there are very few dietary restrictions. The same is true for curative treatments as well. Naturally, seasonal changes impact the mind and body, but every person reacts to treatment differently.
But ancient scriptures suggest that the monsoon months of July to August are the best for Ayurveda treatments. During these months, there’s not much dust, and the air is relatively clean. Since it is warm and humid during the monsoon, we perspire more, allowing the pores to open and eliminate toxins. If you’re seeking relief from chronic fatigue and have been suggested Panchakarma, look for Kerala Ayurveda tour packages during the monsoon.
July to August is best if you plan to sign up for yoga because the muscles are stretched. Similarly, treatment for rheumatism and other arthritic problems is best undertaken during the monsoon because the weather shifts intermittently from warm and dry to humid.
Ayurveda massages like Abhyangam and Njavarakkizhi are best during the monsoon because the open pores allow oil to be absorbed better.
