Saatwika is a wonderful Ayurveda center. Tucked away in a nice residential neighborhood, Dr. Salini and her staff do a great job. I was an American who lived in Trivandrum for one year and went to Dr. Salini as my main medical doctor during that time. She was able to provide care and treatment for anything that came up with me or my family. I also went there regularly for messages which are great and reasonably priced. Overall a calming place with top-notch service. You will not be disappointed!

The Homestay and clinic are in a quiet residential neighbourhood of Thruvandrum very accessible from the Airport and train station.

A Complete Guide on Ayurvedic Treatments in Kerala
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the oldest living medical science that is still being widely practiced.
The word Ayurveda is a combination of two words.
Ayu and Veda.
Ayu means life and Veda means knowledge.
Acharya Charaka has defined the term Ayurveda as the knowledge which deals with the happiness and misery of life, advantages, and disadvantages of life and life span or measurement of life span.
Aims and Objectives of Ayurvedic Treatments
As mentioned by Acharya Charaka, Ayurveda has two aims.
- To preserve the health of a healthy individual
- To get rid of ailing individuals with different ailments.
How do achieve this objective?
To preserve the health of a healthy individual, Ayurveda uses Rasayana chikithsa ( Geriatrics) and Vajikarana.
To treat the ailments Ayurveda uses Sanshodhana( Purificative measures) and Sanshaman Chikithsa ( Alleviating measures)
Ayurvedic Concept of Treatment or Chikithsa
Treatment or chikitsa in Ayurveda has been defined by Acharya as the following.
” The measures by which the imbalanced doshas become balanced is termed as Chikitsa( Treatment)”.
So far as the chikitsa or Treatment is concerned Ayurveda is unique to formulate such a wide range of principles relating to the alleviation of diseases that even diet and regimen have been also included in the realm of treatment on the basis of Tridosha principle.
Ayurveda stresses a balance of three elemental energies or humor which are known as the tri doshas of our body.
These Tridoshas are responsible to maintain their health while they are in a balanced state.
If their balance is disturbed by any cause are responsible to produce diseases.
That means diseases are caused by disequilibrium or imbalance of these doshas, while health is the balance of doshas.
Saptha dhathu or Seven Elemental Tissues
As we already mentioned that the Tridoshas are functional entities of the body so there must be some structural entity in the body where the various functions are going on.
That structural entity is formed by sapthadhathus. or seven elemental tissues .
- Rasa (Plasma)
- Asrik (blood)
- Mamsa (muscles)
- Medas (fat)
- Asthi (bone)
- Majja (bone marrow)
- Sukra (semen)
It is also known as dushyas’s, those that get vitiated by the doshas.
Dehaprakruti (Body Constitution)
According to Ayurveda, each individual is born of a definite constitution that determines natural health and personality.
So it is important to know the constitution of a person.
There are seven body constitutions.
- Vata Prakruti
- Pitta Prakruti
- Kapha Prakruti
- Vata-Pitta Prakruti
- Pitta-Kapha Prakruti
- Kapha-Vata Prakruti
- Vata-Pitta-Kapha Prakruti/Sama dosha Prakruti
Among them ekadoshaja’a is Heena or poor, dvandaja’s are madhyama or moderate and sama dosha prakruti is uttama or best.
Why is Ayurvedic Treatment in Kerala so popular?
There are so many reasons to choose Kerala for Ayurvedic Treatments.
- Kerala has a rich tradition of Ayurveda.
- Kerala also provided heart and soul to develop its traditions in Ayurveda. And now Kerala is the top destination of authentic Ayurveda in the World.

Origin Of Ayurvedic Treatment in Kerala
There is a myth that Lord Parashuram was the reason behind the origin of Ayurveda Treatment in Kerala.
The legend is that Lord Parashurama brought Brahmins to Kerala and assigned eight branches of Ayurveda to eight different families.
These families later came to be known as the ashtavaidyas, which means the Eight Physicians.
Another legend says that the eight prominent disciples of Vaagbhata, a Buddhist physician from Sind who followed the Ashtangahridayam methodology of treatment, later came to be known as the original Ashtavaidyas.
It is also believed that he wrote the entire Ashtangahridayam while sitting on a rock near Thiruvizha temple.

- Ayurveda is the oldest system of healing globally, with a history heading to 5000 years.
- The Ayurvedic treatments and procedures are purely natural and do not contain any side effects.

About Ayurvedic Treatments in Kerala
Generally, people says Ayurvedic Treatments are costly.
But let us check what is the real fact.
Ayurveda treatments in Kerala are not as costly as compared to modern treatment procedures and surgeries.
Many people take treatments for chronic diseases and ailments in Ayurveda for long-lasting results.
Some ayurvedic medicines may be a little expensive compared to modern medicines due to the scarcity of herbs and raw materials’ expense.
People in Kerala are well aware of the benefits of Ayurveda.
So they consider it as one among the mainstream treatment system.
Many Ayurvedic treatment centers in Kerala have qualified doctors and therapists that make these centers authentic and reputed.
The climate in Kerala is another reason which favors ayurvedic Treatments in Kerala.
Availability of herbs in abundance makes Kerala the best place for Ayurveda.
The traditional background of ashtavaidyan and specialized treatments developed in Kerala also adds merit.
General purification therapies or panchakarma therapies, and rejuvenation therapies are good to take during monsoon season.
The climate at that time favors good results.
But in the case of treatments for specific ailments, Patients can take the panchakarma therapies or medications whenever they have a trigger in their diseases.
Kerala’s climate is in very much favor of Ayurveda treatments because it is never too cold or not too hot.
Other than the monsoon season(June, July, August), the winter seasons (mid-November to mid-February) are also good for panchakarma therapies.
Unauthorized medicines manufactured without proper labeling and certification is not good to use because it may contain adulterated substances and heavy metals.
Some of the metal-based preparation made without proper purification is also not advised to use. Sometimes, there may be specific diet restrictions to follow while taking some medicines according to the problem’s body type and nature. If you don’t follow it, there may also be some allergic reactions. Always take ayurvedic medicines after consulting an ayurvedic physician.
Ayurveda medicines prepared from herbs are very safe to use. These medicines are very effective and don’t have any side effects. Some metal-based preparations have some side effects if taken with other medicines or purified properly, or if the dosage exceeds. So it should only be taken under the guidance of an Ayurveda physician. Usually, herbal medicines are very popular in Ayurveda because of their harmless nature.
Some of the best herbal Ayurveda medicines are Brahmi, ashwagandha, Shatavari, giloy, neem, aloe vera, Triphala, tulsi, amla, turmeric, dry ginger, ashtachoornam, etc.
All medicines are best when given for suitable persons in the right dosage according to their body type and nature of ailments under proper guidance.
There are a lot of centers in Kerala offering good quality Ayurveda treatments.
Ayurveda treatments include internal medicines and external therapies.
Internal medicines in the form of herbal juices, pastes, powders, decoctions, ghee, pills are given according to body type and nature of ailments.
External therapies consist of 3 stages- preparatory stage in which oil massage (abhyanga) or oil therapies and swedanam (sudation therapy) is given.
Then main panchakarma therapies or purification therapies like Vamana(emesis), virechanam (purgation), Nasyam (nasal drop), vasthi(enema) rakthamoksham(bloodletting) are given for purification, followed by a special diet schedule.
Ayurveda is not the only treatment. It is a way of living. So certain dos and don’ts to be followed during the treatment time.
Meditation and breathing exercises are also good to follow.
Medicines manufactured by Dhanwanthari Vaidyasala and Kottaykkal are very authentic.

Even though the treatment principles are the same everywhere,
Kerala treatments have some differences from other Indian Ayurveda treatments.
In Kerala, Ayurveda doctors mostly depend on herbal medicines and panchakarma therapies for treatments.
In contrast, in other parts, mainly in north India, rasa preparations and metal-based medicines are more popular.
Kerala has some special herbal Ayurveda preparations, which are very effective.
The traditional background of ashtavaidyans and special panchakarma therapies like njavaratheppu, thalapodichil, etc., developed by Ayurveda physicians in Kerala, has made it more popular.
The wide range of herbs and favorable climates are the other advantages of Ayurveda treatments in Kerala.
