At vaidyagrama, patients with many different conditions arrive for treatment. We do work with all these different conditions including patients with different types of cancer, and patients have achieved different levels of benefit depending on various factors including age, chronicity of the problem, diet and lifestyle etc. We primarily work with -
1) neuro musculo skeletal disorders
2) skin disorders
3) gastro intestinal disorders
4) respiratory system disorders
5) chronic cardiac disorders
6) chronic hormonal disorders
7) reproductive disorders
Also treatment programs for general health maintenance and rejuvenation are given.
This is only an indicative list. Ayurveda primarily treats the individual patient and not the disease. Hence depending on the patient and all the variables that affect the patient including (but not limited to) age, gender, location, diet, lifestyle, habits, relationships, emotional state and willpower, the treatment program is planned and the benefits accrue accordingly. It is also ideal when the patient is able to achieve a reasonable shift in diet and lifestyle when he/she goes back home; it is in the three months period immediately following the treatment that much of the benefit is seen. This benefit continues when the diet and lifestyle is moderated and the patient lives in awareness.
Generally treatment programs vary from periods ranging between 3 - 8 weeks or more depending on the individual need. Treatments given include panchakarma (vamana, virechana, kashaya vasti, taila vasti, nasya), abhyanga, shirodhara, pizhichil, navarakizhi, shirovasti, shirolepa, takradhara, ela kizhi, podi kizhi, navara kizhi, ksheera kizhi - and other such treatments as are deemed appropriate based on the particular medical need of the patient.
During the treatment, all patients are advised to take maximum physical and mental rest. The more the rest, the better the healing. The intake of food is also similarly restricted to simple diet vegetarian food in essential quantity.
The treatment includes internal herbal medicines, external body therapies (as applicable) and lots of rest.
Your treatment program
It starts with a consultation wherein your physicians and you get to know each other better. Accordingly an Ayurveda healing program suited to your constitution, health problems and available time is created that is upgraded on a daily basis following regular interaction. The program includes herbal teas and powders, external body treatments, panchakarma (where necessary), simple easy-to-digest vegetarian diet and lots of rest (physical and mental). Daily evaluation is done through consultation and counselling.
The healing continues when you leave here; hence the more rest you give your body and mind, and the more you continue the medicines and regimen, the better will be the healing. You should plan to carry at least 3 months of herbs/oils (around 10kg) with you for use after treatment; you should stay in touch with your physicians and give them regular feedback to maximise the benefit from the healing process.
