Ayurveda means ‘Knowledge of Life’ or the ‘Science of Life’. Developed in India, Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit (soul). Ayurvedic treatment of recent or chronic disorder depends on an individual’s unique prakriti, the primary dosha, and the balance between all three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Ananda’s approach to Ayurveda

Ayurveda forms an intrinsic part of Ananda’s holistic approach to wellness. Each guest’s rejuvenation journey at Ananda starts with a detailed consultation with the Ayurvedic Physician who identifies the root cause of the disease, and the dosha or mind/body imbalance. Post consultation a customized goal oriented program is designed for each guest that includes massages and therapies at the Spa, a carefully planned dosha specific diet plan and many additional activities that heal not only the body but also the mind.

Ayurveda is long known to be effective in curing chronic ailments like insomnia, diabetes, arthritis, respiratory problems, back pain and more. Here is how a 14-day Ananda Ayurvedic Sodhanam Program works for deep therapeutic effect and relief from specific medical and health conditions:


Phase 1 – In this phase treatments like Udwartana and Abhyanga are planned to improve the Agni or the digestive fire and boost the circulatory functions.

Phase 2 – Purvakarma or pre–operative measures like Abhyanga and Choornaswedana are done to dislodge the toxins from “Srothas” or circulatory pathways to prepare the body for major cleansing therapies.

Phase 3 – Panchakarma procedures like Nasya, Vasti etc. are administered to eliminate toxins and balance the doshas.

Phase 4 – Rasayana or tissue nourishment is done though treatments like Phizhichil, Dhara etc. Proper balanced diet based on one’s body type and Ayurvedic lifestyle routine is prescribed as after care or “Paschatkarma” to maintain the result of the cleansing and to boost metabolism.

The weekly progress checks and programme revisions make fourteen night’s rejuvenation program more intense, personalized and result oriented.

This Ayurvedic treatment forms a part of the Panchkarma procedure beneficial in curing a variety of diseases including neurological disorders, sinusitis, insomnia, eye diseases and certain skin ailments.

As a part of this technique, lukewarm herbal oil is poured in an even stream on to the forehead to pacify and revitalize the mind and the body.

According to Ayurveda, right diet is the foundation of healing. A well planned Ayurvedic diet not only nourishes the body but also restores balance of the ‘tridoshas’ which is central to our healthy being.
