The importance of Vata Dosha and treatments

It is interesting that the treatment of Vata became a part of wellness and well being treatment in Kerala in the history, and nowadays all over the world. “Sukha S’eelata” – indulgence in soothing things – is explained as the basic line of treatment of Vata. Oil massages, oil baths, poultices, shirodhara, sweet sour & salty food, fresh wine, meat soup of fatty animals …. thus goes the treatment principle. But oil Vasti & cleansing Vastis are the strongest means of managing these conditions: these are serious interventions which could be challenging as well! In the internship we will give ample attention to all these treatments and interventions, their possibilities and their challenges.
