Kerala has been ranked at third position of having world's longest-lived and healthiest population. The state has also been crowned as the most gender-equitable and one of the most literate regions around the globe. The state's basic human development indices are roughly equivalent to those in the developed world.
Ayurveda, the 5000 year old medicine and treatment system was invented in ancient India. Over the years and generations, this southern state of India named Kerala has practiced and preserved Ayurveda in its authentic form. There are a number of treatment centers in Kerala who are pioneers in Ayurvedic treatments and has history of more than 100 years. Many have developed their own techniques and medicines to make the treatments more effective.
Kerala, the land of Ayurveda
Kerala has an unbroken ayurveda tradition, which has survived numerous invasions and incursions by strangers and also locals. For centuries, the Ayurveda Vaidyas (Ayurveda practitioners) were almost the only ones the people in Kerala could turn to when they sought cure for all kinds of diseases. Of the legendary eight Vaidya families (Ashta vaidyas) and their successors, the whole state was cared for centuries by medical means. Unlike the other Indian states, Ayurveda does not have the status of alternative medicine in Kerala but is the main direction. In fact, Kerala is today the only state in India where this medical system is practiced with absolute devotion.
Since they were the only contact points for treatments for the people, the Vaidyars of Kerala faced the challenge of interpreting the theories of Ayurveda and actively transforming them into powerful treatment systems for daily life. Therefore, almost all of today's procedures and protocols of Ayurveda originated in and around Kerala.
The blessings of nature
Its balanced climate, natural forests and the cool monsoon season are the best conditions for the healing and strengthening Ayurveda packs. Kerala is perhaps one of the few areas in the world where a temperature of 24-28 degrees is constant during a period of continuous rain. Thanks to this excess of moisture in the air and on the skin surface, it is the ideal place for all kinds of natural medicine, which can show their possibilities fully. The country is also blessed with numerous medicinal plants and offers the continuity and permanence of Ayurveda medicine, which are necessary for an effective treatment. Every year and every season the same herbs are available with the same efficacy. Compared to areas with a different soil composition, the intensity and potency of many ayurvedic remedies are enhanced by the high alkaloid content of the soil.
All round the year, the clinics are opened as well as they do provide a plethora of solutions to the masses. According to Ayurveda, monsoon season is regarded as the best time of the year to undergo Ayurvedic and natural treatment procedures.
The Benefits of Ayurveda in Kerala
Ashtangahridayam, the practical and user-friendly interpretation of Ayurveda, compiled by the great Vagbata, will probably not be applied anywhere in the world as extensively as in Kerala. The Vaidyars of Kerala are well-versed in this latest interpretation of Ayurveda, which many experts call progressing towards the ancient samhitas of the Ayurveda pioneers Charaka and Susruta. In Kerala, the Kashaya Chikitsa (medicinal treatment with mixtures) has become a standard protocol with hundreds of Kashayams that have been scientifically classified and classified according to the various requirements of the treatment. The Vaidyars of Kerala were the first to specialize in the antioxidation properties of the Abayangam, resulting in an overflow to Kizhis.
