Ayurveda is a traditional form of healing that developed in India around 600 B.C. Ayurveda is widely practised in Kerala.The practice of healing the body through natural means, using the extracts of plants was refined into a science by sages and healers in ancient times in India. Ayurveda means the "Science of Life" and it is a holistic method of healing and rejuvenating the body. Ayurveda in Kerala, has gained popularity for its non-invasive and natural techniques that have proved effective in treating many conditions.

According to Ayurveda, the body has several humours. When these humours are unbalanced,then the body is in a state of ill health. These humors are called vata, pitta, and kapha and form the energy or life force that sustain the body. Their depletion or disturbance causes the body to lose its immunity and relapse into illness. Ayurveda has many methods of treatment. The most common method is massage with medicinal oils. Ayurveda seeks to treat the body holistically and tackles not merely the symptoms but the root cause of the illness, thus restoring the body to good health. Ayurveda in Kerala is an established branch of treatment and there are many Ayurveda resorts and Ashrams where you can find licensed practitioners of Ayurveda, with years of experience in treating patients.
