AVN AROGYA AYURVEDIC CENTRE, KOCHI

PRINCIPLE: According to Ayurveda and Naturopathy the unequilibrium or imbalance of the three bio-energies (vatha, pitha& kapha) is the main reason for illness. Illness can affect the body, mind and spirit. Internal cleansing removes the cause of illness and corrects the imbalance of the bio-energies. The cleansing therapies normalize the physical constitution of the body and calms bio-energies. It is used with internal herbal medicines, medical therapies, special diet, proper exercises and measures that support a healthy life-style.

PATHOLOGY & DIAGNOSIS:

Ayurveda has its own traditional modalities for diagnosis. But nowadays we are considering all modern aspects of diagnostic measures for the correct evaluation of the ailment. Most of the chronic cases we get are referred by allopathic doctors. Patients visiting us will be having full and detailed report about their problems. If needed, we will refer them to nearby hospitals for medical investigation. We do not accept any acute cases. For management of emergency we have to make a tie up with near by reputed Hospitals.

INTERNAL MEDICATION:

Ayurveda has a variety of herbal preparations suitable for different conditions.

All preparations are combinations of herbal extracts in the form of tablet, capsule, powder, decoctions or jam. Also we have a variety of medicated oils and other herbal preparations for external use. All the herbal medicines used are manufactured by reputed Ayurvedic Institutions in India which maintain ISO standards. Generally Ayurvedic medicines are safe and without side effects.

We should have an approved pharmacy to sell the herbal medicines. Along with our herbal medicines, we also advice the patients to continue their regular allopathic medicines.

EXTERNAL CLEANSING:

These consist of external therapies, such as oil and sweat therapies. Depending on the type of illness the duration of the therapy, materials used and the procedure will vary. In general, external cleansing is the pre treatment for Panchakarma (internal cleansing) therapies. External cleansing opens up channels of circulation and removes toxic substances that have stagnated the body. Through external cleansing toxic substances are moved to a location from where internal cleansing can eliminate them. Our therapies are performed only under the strict supervision of a qualified physician. Several important factors such as level of blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and liver function must be considered. The list of the main external therapies along with short description is attached separately.

INTERNAL CLEANSING:

Internal cleansing removes the cause or root of an illness and corrects the imbalance of the bio-energies. Internal cleansing therapy normalizes the physical constitution and calms the three bio-energies.

THREE STAGES:

1. PRETREATMENT: Every type of physiological cleansing requires strength and energy from the part of the patient. This procedure prepares the patient for the main cleansing course. It consists of internal medication to stimulate the digestion, oil therapies (different type of medicated massages and oil therapies) and sweat therapies.

2. PANCHAKARMA: This treatment consists of five forms of cleansing –emesis (vomiting), purging (emptying the bowels with laxatives), nasya (treating mucous through the nose), Medicated enemas, Phlebotomy. Know more about Panchakarma

According to the diagnosis the physician will decide which Panchakarma therapy is suitable and the course of treatment.

3. POST TREATMENT: Depending on the goal and the way the patient’s body react to the treatment, the cleansing therapy is followed by different post-treatment procedures. These include diet adjustments, rejuvenating and health promoting medications and calming therapies.

NUTRITIONAL SCIENCE & DIET THERAPY:

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”-this is one of our objective.

Unhealthy combinations of food, artificially flavored food, artificially preserved food, highly fatty food etc., upsets the digestive system which in turn leads to different ailments.

We promote vegetarian food at our centre. To fulfill this objective, we use vegetable grown at our vegetable farm and from nearby farms, and acquire fresh fruits on daily basis.

Fresh juice, green tea, barley coffee and dates are available at the centre.

Our dietician prescribes diet food for each patient.

We have a well equipped and neat vegetarian restaurant.
