If you are looking for a place with authentic traditional Ayurveda, consider a place where even the morning tea is made only from herbs like ginger and tulsi, the ground is painted with the traditional cow-dung solution and the lotus of Ayurveda is immersed and well-nourished from its very roots, the Vedic knowledge. Govardhan Ecovillage is the place where your search for the essence of Ayurveda comes to an end.
According to Ayurveda, the body is merely a reflection of the mind and the mind is but a reflection of the eternal soul. Ayurveda is not just a bundle of some herbal medicines and massage techniques. Healing of mind is the first step in an authentic Ayurvedic treatment. With a spiritual environment and refreshing natural beauty, one instantaneously feels the relief from stress, anxiety, grief or fear. Only when the mind achieves calm, can there be any permanent physical cure. Govardhan Ayurveda is the Ayurveda branch of Iskon. The environment of Govardhan Ecovillage is filled with Krishna consciousness, perfect to achieve the first milestone of your treatment journey.
Every individual is unique. Prakrati is the body constitution of an individual. It is different for each person. Ayurvedic treatment is completely based on the prakrati pariksha or analysis of the individual body constitution. Without prakrati analysis, any treatment is only symptomatic and without any long-term benefits. At Govardhan Ayurveda, we ensure that our patients receive the most suitable and personalized treatment based on their Prakrati and Vikrati (disorder) analysis. The entire treatment is planned and supervised by experienced Ayurveda physicians.
Prevention is the fundamental principal of Ayurveda. Ayurveda says
Swasthasya swasthya rakshanam |
Aturasya vicar prashaman cha ||
Protect the health of the healthy
And treat the diseased if any
Why should we fall sick and who has time to fall sick today? Prevention is always better than cure. Unfortunately, nowadays people start to focus on their health only after they fall sick. Otherwise, they misuse their bodies by pouring in unhealthy junk food and following haphazard lifestyle. Govardhan Ayurveda is more relevant for the healthy than for the sick. We offer preventive treatments that can help you detox and rejuvenate your body and mind. We can help you in effective prevention of irreversible lifestyle disorders like diabetes, hypertension etc. through our Ayurvedic and Yogic techniques. Besides, regular detoxification helps the body to retain a youthful look and delay the onset of the aging process.
According to Ayurveda, good food is the very foundation of health and life.
The one who eats healthy food will need no medicine |
The one who eats unhealthy food will benefit from no medicine ||
At Govardhan Ayurveda, the detoxification process starts with your first breath inside our campus and the first bite of the food that we serve. We are located at Wada village, in 70 acres of lush green forest area. The food that we serve is prepared from fruits and vegetables that are home-grown and completely organic. At Govardhan Ayurveda, your every bite is a step towards better health.
Ayurveda is not only a traditional medical science but a complete lifestyle. Apart from offering a complete range of Ayurvedic, yogic and Vedic services, we also help our guests to gain an insight into the basics of Ayurveda. With basic Ayurvedic knowledge, we try to empower our guests to make wise food and lifestyle choices and stay healthy forever.
