Kerala, the land of Ayurveda

Kerala is one of the southern states of India and has the highest literacy rate in India.

Kerala's equable climate, natural abundance of forests (with a wealth of herbs and medicinal plants), and the cool monsoon season (June - November) are best suited for Ayurveda's curative and restorative packages.

In fact, today, Kerala is the state in India which promotes research and practices ayurveda the most. Traditional texts reveal that the monsoon in Kerala is the best season for rejuvenation programmes.

The atmosphere remains dust-free and cool, opening the pores of the body to the maximum, making it most receptive to herbal oils and therapy.

Kerala Ayurveda has developed in a remarkable way to compete with the modern world. The Ayurvedic physicians are awarded the basic degree BAMS (Bachelor in Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery) which is a five and half years of residential study programme in the medical universities. One who has completed this bachelor programme has to register under the Indian medical council for practicing. Post Graduate (MD) education is conducted in the medical universities as a further three-year residential study in different specialities.
