Ways of Treatment

Kerala Ayurved Niketan is a strong believer of curing chronic ailments through natural processes. As a result, we employ only ‘Ayurveda’, the ancient (but highly effective) ways of treating diseases and stress. There are essentially two ways of treatments performed by our ‘Vaidhya`’ (physicians) – Shodan Chikitsa and Shamana Chikitsa. Let us probe a little deeper in both these therapeutic methods of treatment.

Shodhana Chikitsa:

Ayurveda’s best treatments comprise in the Shodhana Chikitsa. It literally means to relieve the body of all the pains and aches and eradicate the very foundation of any disease. Kerala Ayurved Niketan employs Shodhana Chikitsa of the highest degree and removes ama and mala in the body to retain youthful vigor. Balancing of doshas is also done in this process which gives rise to a healthier you for many years.

Medicated oil and clarified butter (ghee) are used while administering Shodhana Chikitsa. Both elements are administered externally and internally with a combination of jadi butis (natural herbs). The process also includes different methods such as Sirodhara, Panam, Abhyangam and massages.

Shaman Chikitsa:

The Shaman Chikitsa process of treatment is less complex than Shodan Chikitsa. It mostly involves orally administered Ayurveda medicines commonly known as aushadhis. This course of action alleviates the body of any toxins and corrects the functions of Dhatus, Malas, Agni and Doshas plus further immune your body from further ailments.

Shaman Chikitsa is a process that we advise right after the Shodan Chikitsa and involves cleansing of the body by purging and inducing vomiting (Vamana & Virechana). A Nasyam (nasal therapy) process follows right after and includes powders & oils poured from the nostrils. Then comes Vasti (Medicated Enema Process) in which herbal jadi butis with decoction oils are administered via the anus.

While the treatments may sound or appear unpleasant, the result are excellent. Apart from eliminating all the chronic aches, pains and diseases in your body, you will experience a rejuvenated feel with a fitter sense of health.
