As we are nature lovers and we are very aware of its therapeutic influence, we wanted to make the best out of our unique location and offer our clients something special. So to ensure that our clients will get the full benefit of staying with us, we decided to start providing them with opportunity to access Ayurvedic treatments. We deeply believe that the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda it is a treasury with endless potential to offer everyone what they need to improve live quality and most importantly to prevent disease.
What makes us exceptional is our approach towards Ayurveda. We truly recognize the richness of Nepali nature and we want to make the most of the resources we have. It is not only the wide variety of plants and herbs but also the local knowledge about them and natural remedies carried through generations. Almost 60% of the Nepali population still depends on Ayurvedic cures, even without knowing that it is actually called Ayurveda.
That’s why at the Begnas Lake Resort in the center of our practices, is to combine the two schools and approaches – Nepali one with traditional school of Indian Ayurvedic teachings.
What Ayurveda is?
Ayurveda in Sanskrit means – knowledge of life. It is a holistic system that was born in India and Pakistan over 5000 years ago and was brought to Europe by Alexander the Great. It has very rich history and tradition, but what is in the centre of Ayurvedic teachings is to discover the sense and meaning of our existence. Once we understand who we are and what is our life purpose, we can lead happy, healthy and meaningful lives.
According to Ayurveda all Universe and human beings are composed from the same 5 elements: Air, Water, Fire, Ether and Earth. Those elements pair up and represent three main Doshas:
- Vata space&air
- Pita fire&water
- Kapha earth&water
Usually each of us has 2 doshas that there are predominant, but the key for a living in health is to have them in balance. Only then it is possible to live without disease, in peace with yourself and fully to your potential. We and the nature are one and the same. Everywhere where we can notice that the stability is shaken – destruction, disease and extinction takes place.
That’s why in the heart of Ayurveda practices is prevention. Looking after yourself holistically (recognizing the meaning and importance of emotions is highly important) not only after your body but your soul, your relationships with others and the nature. Everything is connected and significant.
Following Ayurvedic principles is like a journey to discover all existing connections, to find your place within them and get insights of who you truly are. Ayurveda offers wide range of tools to support you on your journey.
What treatments do we offer
2. Shamana Chikitsa ( Alleviating Therapies)
Those treatments are less invasive and gentler. Their purpose is to balance all of three doshas. They are focused on reducing and eliminating the symptoms. In those treatments we use herbal remedies, put an emphasis on the right diet and exercise
The first step before any treatment will take place is to meet with Ayurvedic practitioner who through detailed examinations will establish your health condition and prescribe the right treatment. During your first visit you will be asked numerous of detailed questions, the Doctor will observe the way how you communicate, body language you use and will look closely at your appearance. One of the important keys for diagnosis is taking the pulse. Based on the outcome you will be provided with detailed treatment plan which does not include only several procedures, but also specific diet recommendation, breathing and yoga exercises and routine suggestions.
In Ayurveda we do have two tapes of treatments:
1. Sodhan Chikitsa ( Purification Therapies)
The main aim of the treatment is to eliminate toxins out of the body choosing the most suitable method. Depending on the human constituency and the desire outcome it can be:
- Vamana – therapeutic vomiting or emesis
- Virechana – Purgation
- Nasya – elimantion of toxins through the nose
- Vasathy – Enema therapy
- Rakta Moksha – blood detoxification
Before the Panchakarma treatment will be provided, you will need to go through individual preparation process. – shall we write more about it?
