DHANWANTHARAM THAILAM

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:

DHANWANTHARAM THAILAM

– 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

Dhanwantharam Thailam

Dhanwantharam Thailam

 

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.

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!

Ginger Plant from Jojos Home Place

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

Pulse Diagnosis – Nadi Pareeksha

Pulse Diagnosis - Nadi Pareeksha

Checking the pulse of a patient

Why should you consult with our Vaidya (physician) Dr. Harikumar before you start any treatment?

Ayurveda is a practical, clinical, medical science. It uses different methods to find out wether or not your body is working properly, for example examination of pulse, urine, feces, eyes, tongue, speech, skin and form. The most important of these methods is the reading of the pulse.  Continue reading

PIZHICHIL

Kaya Seka, Taila Seka or Sarvanga Senchana…
Whichever name you prefer – this is one of the most exciting Ayurveda treatments!
It is an oiling and healthy sweating all at the same time.
Over a period of 45 minutes or more your body is poured with warmed oil in a specific manner.
The therapists thereby use oil soaked cloths which they squeeze out subsequently over the receiving person. Even the height from which they do so is specified according to your condition.
During the treatment you will sit or lay in different positions.
While the oil is continuously flowing on your body you also receive a gentle massage.

This type of treatment is indicated to reduce increased Vata dosha and degenerative diseases of the muscles.
You must try at your next stay with us!
