Hotel: Ananda - South Asia's Finest Ayurvedic Resort & Spa

India is the home of one of the oldest healing systems-the Ayurveda. It traces its roots from one of the ancient Indian scripture - the Vedas, where it is defined as the science of life or the study of body mechanism. Divine Travels invites you to visit India and take the maximum benefit of this comprehensive system of natural healthcare.

Ayurveda believes that there are three primary life forces-vatha(mobility), pitha(energy) and kapha(stamina) and the imbalance between them is the very cause of all ailments. Unlike modern diagnosis, Ayurveda diagnoses your body constituents to better understand your ailment. It will then cure you accordingly to bring back the natural balance of the biological humors.

This ancient science also discusses other basic concepts like saptha dhatus (the body tissues), srotas (channels), ama (toxins) and trinity of life, that is, the body, mind and spiritual awareness.

We will take you to the best ayurvedic center in India where the treatment is divided into two groups-tonification and reduction. The expert practitioners there will treat you using their vast experience and knowledge and rest assured the ayurvedic medicines wouldn't cause any adverse side effects as they are prepared using natural plants, metals, minerals and even mud & sand.

It might sound incredible but the description of the incurable diseases like AIDS, Cancer and many others can be found in the Vedas. Ayurveda offers remedies even for these fatal diseases, which is still a formidable task for the modern medicine.

Surely, your visit to India is incomplete if you are not touched by the magic of Ayurveda. Once thought of as unattainable enlightenment is now within your grasp with Divine Travels. In your quest to discover the hidden treasure of Ayurveda we would feel proud to be your guiding partner.

The Ayurvedic concept of Vata, Pitta and Kapha

According to Ayurveda, the universe is made of five primordial elements, namely earth, air, fire, water and ether. These elements themselves are inanimate, but in combination give rise to three main biological forces or principles in the human body, called doshas ­ vata, pitta and kapha.

These doshas are key to your psycho physiological nature. As every human being has a different balance of elements, one dosha is typically predominant in our constitution and ascertains our personality.
