Lifestyle diseseases


Green Gram Wellness Village is the perfect destination for those who seek the best of Ayurveda and Yoga at single place abundant with goodness of nature. As per Ayurveda, each element in the universe is a combination of Pancha Mahabhuta (five elements). When these five universal elements — Space, Air, Fire, Earth and Water — combine to form a human body, they create the three vital energies or doshas —Vata, Pitta & Kapha.

These doshas then govern all the psychological and physiological functions of the body. When in perfect equilibrium these energy forces create perfect health in body and mind. This state is known as Sama Prakriti i.e. a person who is in a state of balanced harmony with his body and mind. In such a state, people experience bliss, highest productivity, glowing skin and excellent health.

However, sometimes, either since birth or due to the wrong eating habits, busy lifestyle, wrong medication, lack of exercise, pollution, stress and various other reasons, these doshas aggravate or diminish. This affects the body and mind. If ignored, this disequilibrium paves the way for diseases. Sometimes, there is no disease to speak of, but you may experience unhealthy symptoms like aches, depression, lethargy, insomnia, allergies, inability to perform your duties to perfection, a feeling of hopelessness, and lack of vitality and energy. This is the time you need to pause a bit, get connected to nature and let the experts help you gain equilibrium of the constituent energy forces.

The principle of Ayurveda is promoting health by preventing disease and illness. At Sanskrit Spa, our temple of healing, diseases are treated by eliminating the factors responsible for disequilibrium of the body matrix or of any of its constituent parts. Authentic Ayurveda Treatments including Panchkarma procedures, medicines coupled with a suitable diet and regimen to restore the body’s natural balance. It strengthens the body’s mechanisms to prevent or minimise the possibility of the disease occurring in future.

The three doshas

Vata: The most powerful of the three doshas is Vata, formed by the combination of Space and Air. This sets the ball rolling and is responsible for movement. It is cold and dry in nature and moves fast, unless obstructed. It is responsible for the movement every element of our body.

Just like it carries nutrients, Vata can also carry aggravated Kapha or Pitta to different locations and cause an ailment. Vata aggravation causes joint pains, dry skin, tremors, cramps, strokes and musculoskeletal problems. It is pacified with oil massages, yogasanas, sweet, warm, lubricating and nourishing foods like soups and stews.

Pitta: It is the agni or the fire in the body. Resulting due to the combination of Fire and water, Pitta is responsible for metabolism. It helps in the digestion process and is responsible for the light in the eyes and the glowing skin. When aggravated, it causes digestive problems, skin diseases, ulcers and a burning sensation. It is pacified with cooling herbal pastes, oils and decoctions, and herbal rice therapies.

Kapha: Kapha is the lubricant of the body. Formed through the combination of earth and water, it helps in binding the body tissues and gives stability and structure to the body. It imparts softness to body parts and allows for good sleep. People with aggravated Kapha suffer from weight problems, lethargy, excess sleep, colds and coughs, aches and pains etc. When aggravated, Kapha is pacified with hot oils, herbal powder therapies and boluses.


According to ayurveda, all ailments are due to the imbalance of the three doshas — Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Though this is the first criteria, it goes deeper and a thorough assessment is done. A range of ailments like arthritis, scoliosis, leaky gut syndrome, skin diseases, respiratory disorders, abdominal disorders, spine problems, sciatica, varicose veins, nervous disorders, muscular skeletal disorders, bronchitis, skin eruptions, ulcers, rheumatoid arthritis, slip disc, spondylitis and frozen shoulder can be treated by Ayurveda successfully, without any side effects.

Ayurveda and Wellness Consultation

On arrival, we start with a one-on-one consultation to understand the requirements of each individual. Ayurveda believes that each individual is unique and needs to be understood thoroughly to identify the root cause of the ailment. It believes in the mind, body connection and hence the ayurveda consultation is aimed at identifying the prakriti or the unique energetic constitution according to the doshas prevalent in the body. Depending on the prakriti of the person, their likes and dislikes, their lifestyle, age and food habits, a sequence of programmes are created with Ayurveda therapies, diet, and well-being. The end result is the person feels light, energetic and revitalised in body, mind and soul.
