Karkida Chikitsa

A long standing tradition that has existed in Kerala for centuries now is the ‘KarkidaChikitsa’. A treatment done during the monsoon season in the state. Even though the monsoon in Kerala is said to be one of the most romantic of all in our nation it also accompanies illness and general uncomfortableness. The aim of the practice is to enrich the mind, body and soul through the right dietary and life style. The simple practices to be followed during KarkidaChikitsa are:

  • Follow a healthy diet.
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water daily
  • Avoid fried foods, alcohol and smoking
  • Meditation and Yoga
  • Social interaction with the right group
  • Find time to spend with family and friends
  • Reading or listening to spiritual scriptures
