Panchakarma Treatments, Yoga Exercise, and Ashwagandha Herbal Tea As Alternative Medicine In India
If you are seeking alternative medicine for your medical condition, then Ayurvedic medicine has become a popular choice among medical tourists. The main region for top Ayurvedic medicine is in the Indian state of Kerala, on the southwestern tip of the subcontinent. The main city of arrival is Cochin or Kochi and from there, medical tourists can visit the Ayurvedic hospital, clinic or spa of their choice.
What Is Ayurvedic Medicine?
The ancient Indian medical system, also known as Ayurveda, is based on ancient writings that rely on a “natural” and holistic approach to physical and mental health. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical systems and remains one of India’s traditional health care systems. Ayurvedic treatment combines products (mainly derived from plants, but may also include animal, metal, and mineral), diet, exercise, and lifestyle.

The treatment for general holistic health is called Panchakarma (‘five actions’ in Sanskrit). It is a combination of oil treatments poured over the body, holistic massage, and sweat therapy with the goal of removing toxins from the body and restoring balance.
Yoga is an integral part of Ayurvedic medicine and is done to strengthen the body and increase flexibility with an exercise routine of poses and stretches to eliminate toxins and enhance the therapy of the treatments.
Finally, diet is an important part of Ayurvedic medicine and healthy, mostly plant-based food is provided along with herbal teas such as Ashwagandha tea which is a powerful root from a local plant.
The main cities for Ayurvedic hospitals in Kerala are Kochin and Alaphuzzha (Aleppo), however, most cities and tourist areas have Ayurvedic clinics or spas. A few clinics have achieved hospital status and one, AyurVaid, now has a clinic in top hospitals in Kerala (Aster MediCity) and New Delhi (Medanta MediCity) as part of an integrative approach to medicine combining modern and traditional healing.
Kerala has the highest literacy rate in India and is known as the land of coconuts. It is also a source of black pepper and the original location of the vast pepper trade that occurred between Asia and Europe. Because of the rapid change in elevation from tropical lowlands along the coast to mountainous terrain inland, an enormous array of plants and foods can be grown giving Kerala an excellent health resource through a variety of agriculture.
