Ayurveda, the science of life, originated 5000 years ago, is the ancient system of medicine. The literal meaning of the word ‘Ayurveda’ is “Life and Knowledge” (‘ayu’ means life, ‘veda’ means knowledge). It is the ancient system of medicine which is time tested with proven efficiency in healthcare and diseases. In Ayurveda the treatments are divided into two types. I) Shodhana and II) Shamana.

Shodhana consists of five purification procedures so it is called Panchakarma.

⦁ Vamana (Emesis)

⦁ Virechana (Purgation)

⦁ Nasya (Nasal Application)

⦁ Vasthi (Enema Therapy)

⦁ Raktamokshana (Blood Letting)

Shamana is the rejuvenation through internal medicines, exercises and treatments. Human body like this universe is made out of five elements and they are called Panchamahabhutas & seven tissues called Saptha Dhathus.


Air, Ether - Vatha, Fire - Pitha - Tridosha, Water - Kapha, Earth

Saptha Dhathus

Rasa (Blood Plasma), Raktha (Blood), Mamsa (Muscle), Medas (Fat), Asthi (Bone), Majja (Bone Marrow), Sukla (Semen or Ovam)
These 3 doshas are present in every human body in different proportions called “Dosha prakruty” or “body types”. The evaluation of ‘prakruthy’ is vital in Ayurveda treatments. All the medicines, diets, internal medicines can be prescribed after considering these Tridoshas. Cherai Beach Resorts offers holistic authentic traditional ayurvedic treatments at its govt. approved green leaf accredited Ayurveda centre called Ayurmana Spa.
These therapies are thoroughly scheduled with a splendid, soothing combination of therapies that protect the body during the weary summer. Traditionally, these therapies are done with soothing oils and cooling buttermilk, to replenish the dried-up cells and organs.
⦁ Ayurveda Monsoon Care

As per ancient inscriptions, the monsoon season is the best season for Panchakarma treatments. The changes in the climate has a great impact on the body and mind. The skin pores open faster due to the high moisture during monsoon hence the skin can absorb the Ayurvedic oil better.
As per Malayalam calendar, Karkidakam is the last month (falls in July or August) and is the period of monsoon season. The people are more susceptible to diseases and it becomes vital to follow health treatments in rainy season. This month is considered a challenging month in terms of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Karkidaka Chikilsa is a traditional treatment process followed in Kerala at the time of monsoon season since ancient times.
A medicated porridge called Oushadha Kanji/ Karkidaka Kanji is a medicinal rice soup and a traditional item of Kerala is also prepared and served to enhance the effect of the therapies that help for improving the immunity and to prevent diseases during karkidaka month. It is a tasty dish that helps protect against the monsoon fevers.
