Ayurveda is the traditional health science of India. It is a mixture of science, art and philosophy. The word Ayurveda literally translates to ‘Science of life’. Ayurveda explains the knowledge of various guidelines to be followed to keep one healthy. In recent times, Ayurveda has gained universal acceptance for its curative powers and the ability to maintain physical, mental and spiritual health for a full life span.
This science has a strong basis of Indian philosophy which has been handed down to us in the form of ancient scripts written on palm leaves.
Ayurveda is based on ‘Panchabhuta’ and ‘Thridosha’ theories. Ayurveda explains that every living and non-living being in this universe is a unique combination of five eternal elements, called ‘Panchamahabhuta’, which are earth, water, fire, air and ether(space). Proceeding from them, there are three physiological elements or principles known as ‘Thridoshas’. According to Ayurveda, good health is the harmonious co-existence of these three elements.
Ayurveda explains different kinds of treatments to preserve the health and to cure the disease, by keeping the equilibrium of body constituents.
Manimangalam Natural Concepts, in partnership with Kadaltheeram Beach Resort and Ayurveda Spa, offers you a unique blend of various Ayurvedic treatments and Ayurveda based Spa packages for the preservation of health and disease cure in a natural and holistic way.
