Ayurveda

Nestled in the beautiful mountain ranges of Sahyadris, in the amazing landscape of Govardhan Ecovillage, Govardhan Ayurveda incorporates a holistic way of treating every individual based on prakruti analysis. Govardhan Ayurveda focuses on treating the root cause of the ailment, i.e. the doshas, and bringing a perfect harmony between the mind, body and soul. The Ayurveda Packages here are divided into 4 categories keeping in mind the necessity of the individual in terms of the diseases he/she is suffering from. With the best medical team on board rooting from the traditional Kerala Ayurvedic Therapies, Govardhan Ayurveda is set to add a new element to the way Ayurveda transforms the individual as a whole.

Govardhan Ayurveda employs the 3000-year old authentic ayurvedic practices to find the perfect balance between body, mind and soul with the five elements - space, wind, fire, water and earth - that forms our universe.

Our proactive approach promotes living a healthy lifestyle rooted in nature over the reactive method of fighting a disease. If your mind, body, and soul are in harmony with the universe, you have good health. However, an imbalance in this natural setup leads to a human body to succumb to a disease. Our ayurvedic treatments are geared to resolve specific health problems - genetic or birth defects, injuries, climate and seasonal change, age, and your emotions - and restore the balance.

At Govardhan Ayurveda, we provide honest, authentic, and traditional Ayurvedic healthcare for various lifestyle and life threatening ailments all through customized treatments, customized diet, high quality medicines, patient education, and transformative lifestyle changes to effect positive and sustainable transformation of the body, mind & soul.

AYURVEDA - THE SCIENCE OF LIFE

Ayurveda or the Science of Life is a holistic approach to healthcare that helps people live long, healthy and a well-balanced life.

VATHA

Vata exemplifies the energy of movement and is thus often associated with wind. It’s linked to flexibility and creativity and governs all movement including the pulsation of heart, flow of breath, tissue movements, contractions of muscle and communication throughout the mind and the nervous system.

PITHA

Pitta embodies the energy of transformation and is therefore closely aligned with the fire element. It’s closely related to intelligence, understanding, and the digestion of foods, emotions, thoughts, and experiences; it governs body temperature, nutrition and metabolism and the light of understanding.

KAPHA

Kapha offers structure, solidity and cohesiveness to all things, and is thus associated primarily with the earth and water elements. It also exemplifies the watery energies of compassion and love. This dosha hydrates all cells and systems moisturizes the skin, lubricates the joints, protects the tissues and maintains immunity.

3 ASPECTS OF AYURVEDA TREATMENT

CURE

In the context of Ayurveda, cure has a special meaning. Disease is defined as the imbalance in the metabolism of the body. In Ayurveda, the cure is never focused on removing the symptoms. Such an approach will be loop-sided and might cause side-effects or short-term benefits. The focus of Ayurvedic medicine is on regaining the overall metabolic balance of the body, on reining in the 3 doshas back in to a metabolic symphony.

DETOX

There is so much talk about detox today. Let’s try to understand what exactly the detox therapy is and what it aims to do to our body. Ayurvedic Detoxification Therapy or Shodhana Chikitsa has multiple treatment procedures for different parts of the body. Panchkarma is the most renowned of all other detoxification treatments. The word “Panch” means five and “karma” stands for the procedure.

REJUVENATE

Rejuvenation is an old concept. Many ancient cultures have described various procedures to regain youth and virility. However, Ayurvedic concept of rejuvenation is more elaborate and proactive. You do not have to rejuvenate after the aging process gains pace or when you start to feel drained and lethargic. Rejuvenation should be a cyclic process in order to maintain the health in its best state.

SPECIAL TREATMENTS

The Ayurvedic treatments offered by Govardhan Ayurveda are designed closely under the strict guidelines of the traditional school of Ayurveda. Each treatment is individually planned as per the needs of the patient prescribed by our expert Ayurvedic doctors. Every cure includes a specific Ayurvedic diet corresponding with the patient’s constitution type to achieve the desired health outcomes.

WELLNESS PACKAGES

Our wellness packages are sketched out closely focusing the ayurvedic protocols. They not only offer treatments to cure possible “disease” which is causing the imbalance in the metabolism of the body but also help you proactively detoxicate and rejuvenate in order to maintain the health in its best state.

PATIENTS SPEAK

I came to Govardhan Ecovillage with the issue to the ovarian cyst and weight loss and other related issues. As I entered I was elated with the response I got from the staff. All of them are welcoming. Doctors have helped to understand my issue and made me realize that I have to assess the situation from the core and work towards it sincerely to overcome the problems from the root. I was served with care and was helped with required knowledge during my stay. My body was swollen due to thyroid and other hormonal issues, which was not there during my discharge.

Sarita Bhatia

Despite being exposed to the latest health developments in the West, I knew the answers to my ailments lay in the ancient ayurvedic practices of the East. And I knew the best place to come for this was the beautiful Govardhan Eco Village in the Wada district. I received exceptional ayurvedic treatment, the doctors were knowledgeable and grounded in the sastric roots and practices of Ayurveda. Dr Sreejith was an expert vaidya, able to diagnose my issues from a single pulse reading. His application of Ayurveda was impressive and his level of training in Ayurveda was rare. I was impressed with how much the wellness centre had developed from the time I had visited it one year prior. There were consultation offices, fully equipped therapy suites with their own shower rooms, an ayurvedic pharmacy and a kitchen. The ayurvedically prepared meals were delicious and healthy. I loved the soft chapattis, steamed idli and creamy courgette subjis. My favourite was the carrot and coriander parathas with coconut chutney. I certainly anticipate the ayurvedic restaurant that will open there soon! I am grateful to all those I met, from the expert doctors, the welcoming support staff, and the inspiring monk, Lila Kirtan dasa, who coordinated it all.

Dr. Beatrice Anobah

We first visited Govardhan Ayurveda on the day of its inauguration. GEV has established the Ayurveda in the purest form bringing it with all essence from Kerala. The Ayurveda has most of its herbs grown in the surrounding garden. The thing that appeased me most was the fact that most of the medicinal formulas for the inpatients were prepared all fresh from the herbs. The staffs in Ayurveda are all very homely and soft spoken at the same time expert in their part of therapies. Dr. Sasikumar Nechiyil – The Aacharya (Guru) and mentor is very caring. On the inauguration day Anju met Dr Sasikumar and for the first time Anju heard something “The case is not very critical, she should be walking after treatment, though it may take some time”. The words came as relief and boosting confidence in Anju. “I was really going into depression, but his words have brought me back and I believe in him”, Anju told me later. Dr Sreejith Ayyappath – The Medical Director of Govardhan Ayurveda is a very young, energetic and expert vaidya. He amazed me with his expertness of pulse reading when he read the pulse of my Mom and discussed all ailments. He told things as if he has read all previous reports. He would visit Anju daily to enquire, observe and prescribe further if required. The treatment was done under his supervision.
