In Ayurveda, the digestive process is considered central to the development of good quality of tejas (intelligence), Ojas (vitality) and Prana (life-force). The digestive process is a broad term that includes our gross digestion of food, digestion of elements (sugar, amino acids, fats), cellular metabolism, as well as digestion of sensory inputs, thoughts and ideas.

Without proper elimination, the body’s blood, lymph, cerebro spinal fluid and subtle channels within various organs all become susceptible to accumulation of waste. According to Ayurveda, accumulation and blockage is caused by “Ama” – a form of intermediate waste product. This intermediate waste product or “Ama” occurs due to incomplete processing of waste resulting from weak metabolic function – in turn, causing accumulation and blockage of the route of elimination.

Thus, regular daily and seasonal detoxification are recommended as part of cleansing. Additionally, Ayurvedic Panchkarma procedures are designed to stimulate cellular cleansing for the diseased and healthy individuals.

Current season - Greeshma (Summer)

While May is the hottest month in the Kumaon Himalayas, June offers intermittent rains. The temperate pleasant climate is ideal for undergoing Ayurveda therapies and interventions at AyurVAID Kalmatia that cool the body down and keep the skin supple and moist.
