Rejuvenation Program

Rejuvenation, also called Rasayana in ayurveda, is derived from two Sanskrit words namely Rasa & Ayana. Rasa refers to the nutrient portion derived after the proper digestion of food and Ayana refers to the proper channeling of such nutrients within the body.

Rejuvenation treatments improve the overall health and well being of an individual and prolong life. It is a time tested and proven system that seeks to boost the Rasas (body fluids) in an individual and to endow it with maximum potency. Rejuvenation therapy helps to maintain optimum body performance at a micro level and provides nourishment to the tissues. It repairs damaged tissues and also facilitates the growth of new cells.

These Rejuvenation treatments restore youthfulness, arrests ageing, impart glow to the skin, guarantee strength and vitality, provides sexual vigour and increases production of shukra dhatus, improve memory power and intellect, promote longevity and provide immunity from a host of diseases. It helps an individual maintain permanently a perfect balance of the body, mind and soul.

Rejuvenation therapies are basically of two types: the shorter version (Vaataatapika) and the longer version (Kuteepraaveshika).

Kuteepraaveshika- Indoor Rasayana therapy

This form of treatment has gained world wide acclaim for its ability to thwart the ageing process. Studies conducted before and after the treatments have confirmed the veracity of the claim. The individual stays in a room cut off from the rest of the world for a specified period exceeding 40 days. The therapy starts with the panchakarma treatments and special diets and oral medicines are administered as part of the rasayana treatments. Yoga and meditation also form part of the rejuvenation treatments. After the expiry of the stipulated period of treatment, the individual can expect a complete transformation in his physical, mental and spiritual life.

Vaataatapik Outdoor Rasayana therapy

In the shorter version the patient is administered special diets and oral medicines and undergoes yoga and meditation as part of the rejuvenation program. There is no compulsion on his part to stay in a specified area. The benefits accruing from the shorter version, however, would not match those derived from the longer version.

Diagnosis - The Ayurveda Way

All treatments in Ayurveda are prescribed only after a careful diagnosis of the patientís body constitution, family history, sex, age, stage of the disease etc.

The first consultation with an Ayurveda doctor, including the diagnosis will last for more than an hour. The basic step in the diagnosis will be to find the personís body humour (Dosha) - Vata, Pita or Kapha, because it is the imbalance of these body humours that create every disease.

The dominance of dosha in a person is found by asking several questions on his behaviour, food habits, sleeping patterns, personal details like age, height & weight, place of life, profession, health problems and medical reports etc. Ayurveda diagnosis comprises of clinical and laboratory tests also. The doctor can decide if an Ayurveda treatment is helpful on providing these details.

Pulse, tongue, nail, and eye examinations are important diagnosis methods used to reveal a personís body humour and its imbalance. This will help the doctor in treating the disease.

Pulse diagnosis in Ayurveda is not just counting the beats. It also reveals the health status of the entire body constitution, including the dosha imbalance and the health of the various body organs.

In tongue diagnosis, the doctor checks the general appearance, colour and coating of the tongue. In Ayurveda, as different areas of the tongue correspond to different organs of the body, the Ayurvedic practitioner can determine which organs of the body are out of balance by having a detailed tongue examination.

Nail examination is done to check the type, colour and shape of the personís nail. Imbalances of doshas are easily detected on close examination.

In the eye diagnosis, the colour, size and even the shape of the eyes are important in determining the dosha dominance of a person. His mental status,nervousness, anxiety, confidence level etc can also be learned through eye diagnosis.

A preliminary consultation with Ayurveda doctors online is also possible nowadays for guests worldwide.
