The guest can have the exclusive privacy of a homestead and at the same time enjoy the priceless benefits of authentic ayurvedic treatments. Harmony, Balance, Integrity, Simplicity, Well-being…..These are concepts fundamental to the system of Ayurveda. Ayurveda, which means 'Knowledge of the life forces', is universal or valid even today as it was 5000 years ago, maybe even more so.


The present state of the world, that is of aggression, dominance, competition, war and destruction is the manifestation of the world-view which is not in tune with the processes of nature. Hence out of tune with the philosophy of Ayurveda, this predisposes the body, which is a part and product of nature to various illnesses. There is a great need for us to re-establish that tuning or communication with the life forces or processes of nature and with our own body. Your body should not be taken for granted. The body - made up of the five great elements earth, water, fire, air and ether..or the 'Pancha bhoothas' The three Doshas - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha which are forces in the body produced by normal metabolic processes and not physical substances.


The six tastes - of sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent that influence the balance of the doshas in the body. The seven dhatus - or classes that are rasa, blood, flesh, fat, bone, marrow, shukra into which all body tissues are divided Prana, tejas and ojas which are not doshas. There is no standard diet for everyone, or any minimum daily requirements. Its concern is that the food we take in and the way we take it is in harmony with our own body constitution and it should be adjustable for seasonal variations as well as the various stages in an individual's life. ' We are what we eat holds a lot of truth here.


Ayurvedic treatment is broadly of two types, Pancha Karmam and Shamanam Panchakarmam, or Shodhanam, is a five-step purification treatment for the body through Vamanam (emesis), Virechanam (purgation), Basti (enema), Nasyam (nasal medication) and Raktha Moksha (blood letting). Shamanam is a treatment that purges the disease and it's symptoms through Kshut (fasting), Trit Nigraham (restriction of fluids), Vyayamam (exercise), Atapaseva (sun rays), Maruta Seva (breeze of air), along with herbal medicines.
