Ayurveda in India – all you need to know

What is Ayurveda? 

Ayurveda is a 5000 year old art of healing from India. It is the oldest recorded traditional system of medicine which is still practiced and lived today. Ayurveda takes into account the physical and mental constitution of the person and how his/her social relationships influence their environment. It teaches us how our lives can be influenced, shaped and extended, and eventually be controlled. Hence, Ayurveda requires self-responsibility regarding the quality of nutrition, your way of life and the mindfulness with yourself and others. An Ayurveda retreat can therefore help you with recreation and wellbeing in general.

Even chronic diseases can be treated and in some cases, healed, with Ayurveda. Some of these diseases include rheumatic diseases, metabolic disorders, cardiac cycle afflictions, allergies, skin diseases and gynecological disorders. Ayurveda can also have a positive effect on patients with mental disorders like depression, anxiety, etc., because the concept of Ayurveda suggests that physical as well as mental disorders originate from disorders in the flow and balance of energy. Of course, the usual precondition applies: Ayurveda can only unfold its full potential if practiced in daily life and not only in the Ayurveda retreat. 

How does Ayurveda work? 

After thorough diagnostics of the eyes, pulse and tongue, and on the basis of a questionnaire about your health, a licensed doctor proposes a plan for treatment. This very concept can be adjusted according to personal requests, the time you will spend at the Ayurveda retreat and the climatic conditions during the stay. Personal diagnostics and daily consultations with experts are an essential part of every high-quality Ayurveda therapy. During the treatment, you will have a daily consultation session in which you can individually adjust the treatment and its intensity according to your condition.

Ayurveda harmonizes the mind and body through herb and oil applications. The essence of Ayurvedic medicine, which is the knowledge of herbs and their effects, is mostly unknown to the western world. Even if western Ayurveda schools work with different compositions of herb applications, the healing effect of Ayurveda is based on the individual composition of applications of oil and herbs. Another essential part of Ayurveda retreats is Yoga and meditation, and both of these, along with Ayurveda, originated from the ‘vedic’ science. Dating to more than a thousand years ago, it is deployed to heal the body, as well as strengthen mindfulness and clear one’s consciousness.

Nutrition plays a crucial role in the Ayurveda retreat as well, since it is one of the cornerstones of the concept of Ayurveda. Due to the different metabolisms of every body, a nutrition consultant who offers advice according to the requirements of the individual body is part of a typical Ayurveda treatment. This consultant helps you learn what you can improve in the future when you are back home. In general, an Ayurveda retreat is fit for everyone who wants to improve one’s health and wellbeing.

What is the best time and how long should you come to India for an Ayurveda retreat? 

Typically, people come to India for Ayurveda retreats during the monsoon. In Kerala in South India, where you will find the most retreats, the monsoon season starts in June and lasts until September, and returns again from October to November. This is the best time for the body to purge itself. But this also means that the climate brings a lot of rain, humidity and sometimes even flooding and landslides. If you want to avoid these climatic conditions, you’re better off choosing a time in winter, between December and March. From March until the next monsoon season in June it can be very hot and humid.

If you want to go to an Ayurveda retreat for recreation and wellness, 2 weeks are sufficient. For more serious diseases you should plan a longer stay, from 4 to 6 weeks, even longer if necessary.
