Mid August 2021 I moved into the new location at the Le Cafe premises. It is just a few houses away from the old Prakruthi Ayurveda site and many of you might remember the restaurant Le Cafe as well. In the beginning everything looked a bit bleak and I found it hard to start again. The sudden break up with my former business partner left me really struggling in many ways. But your encouraging words and deeds kept me going. Thank you so much!
Since then I renovated the rooms and tried to make them as comfortable as possible for you. This is still an ongoing process of course.
From September onward I also work no longer alone, but along with my new colleagues Remya and Akhilesh. Both are young and highly motivated. Pictures will follow. I’m very grateful they joined me in these times of uncertainty.
Great news for us: “With the exception of beaches, all tourist destinations in Kerala will reopen on Monday with strict adherence to COVID protocols. However, beaches are likely to open only from November 1….” (Read more at: https://www.onmanorama.com/travel/travel-news/2020/10/11/kerala-tourism-centres-to-reopen.html).
So we are open since Monday again to welcome you back to our beautiful Cherai!

The Prakruthi Ayurveda Health and Beauty Shop – has just opened!

Today we would like to show you a truly divine medicinal preparation we often use in our spa and you can also use easily at home. Have a look:
– named after the God of Ayurveda – Dhanwantari. The main incrediences – besides water and cows milk – is a plant called Sida cordifolia or in sanskrit: Bala.
Bala means strength and power – that is what the oil can benefit you. Indicated when vata dosha is out of balance, during and after pregnancies, also for the baby, and rather serious complaints
like arthritis, back ache, neuralgia, nourishes skin and detoxes. It is one of the most widely used oils here. We use it for all kinds of treatments, not only massages. A great benefit for you would be, if you took some of Dhanwantharam Thailam home with you and apply the oil yourself for a few weeks more. Dhanwantharam Thailam is available at our store from our own brand!
In a later post we will tell you about more varieties of Dhanwantaram Thaliam which are also commonly used for very specific ailments.
And do check with our Dr. Hari first, wether this oil is suitable for your body constitution.
Must definitely take home with you: MURIVENNA -from the Malayalam language literally meaning “wound -oil”.
As the name suggests you can apply the oil on all kinds of wounds ;-).
It has antiseptic, wound healing properties, stops wound bleeding and is pitta balancing.
Take it home with you for things like:
sprains, pain (think of neck, back and shoulder…), swelling, stiffness, fractures, inflamed joints, bruises, insect bites, Herpes simplex and H. zoster even Akne, burns, old and fresh wounds, ulcers and for your old grandma who might lie in bed all the time and suffer from decubitus – so all in all: a must have!
If ginger makes you only think of ginger bread men now at Christmas or Ginger Ale – think again!
Ginger, Zingiber officinale (ഇഞ്ചി – Inji for fresh and ചുക്ക് – chukku for dried -in Malayalam) is a tropical/sub-tropical plant and is called in ancient Ayurvedic texts ‘universal medicine’. The root – rhizome – is used either fresh or dried and powdered.
Fresh and also dry ginger both reduce vata and kapha, which makes it perfect for common winter ailments. Continue reading →
