Aditya Ayurveda Hospital in Kerala is a small clinic, set within a lush garden of medicinal plants, with half dozen rooms, and lovely staff. Dr Satya comes from a family of several generations of Ayurvedic doctors and he offers among other treatments Pancha Karma, which a deep cleanse of three weeks min that rejuvenates the body balancing the tridoshas - Vata, Pita, and Kapha-, eliminates illness and toxins from the body, and really tests your mind! It's not easy at all; you may have to handle drinking cups of ghee -liquid butter- which captures the toxins in your body, and you then have to eliminate it from your body in various ways. The good news is that this process really works: for instance it got rid of psoriasis, lowered chronic high blood pressure and rheumatism, and it put back to full action a paralyzed arm.
I just had few days available for a light cleanse, which consisted of drinking disgusting herbal infusions, pleasant massages with medicated sesame oil, delicious warm medicated water poured all over me, very light tasteless monotonous food, which after four days I couldn't bear anymore, imagine 3 weeks...There were 4 other lovely European ladies being cured there and we helped and support each other during our weak moments. We had very gentle yoga classes every day at 6:30am, which was taught by a good local teacher who gave us the best shavasanas. Btw, you are not supposed to do any challenging asana during treatment: you need to keep all your energy for the detoxification process!
Anyway after 4 days of cleanse and several emails from Robbert telling me about his delicious meals in Kochin, I decided it was time to join him!! : D
