Theertham Herbals About us


Ayurveda- an integral healing system – legacy of India’s vedic culture- a holistic healing system that help you to create awareness about your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

In India’s ancient vedic tradition the most basic force underlying existence or nature is ‘intelligence’. This inteligence is literally infinite. Humans like any other being is a part of the collective intelligence or the cosmic intelligence. Our physical body is an expression of the cosmic intelligence in a creative way.

we know your body Type?

Everyone has essentially the same kind of cells and organs, despite huge variations from one personality to another. Ayurveda belives that what makes us different from each other is the mind body type of ours. Each and every human being has a unique mind body type associated with a proportionate difference of thridoshas- vata, pitta and kapha.

Our body type never change, we are born with it. But the doshas are in constant flux which makes changes in the dosha level of the body ie., aggravation or depletion of doshas happens when exposed to environmental changes, ingestion of food or when there is a stressful event etc. Even doshas changes diurnally.

Basic Principles

The Five Elements Theory

The Five elements (Pancha maha bhoothas) : The ‘purusha’ or human being as any other living being is composed of five basic factors(five proto basic factors/elements ) earth, air, fire, water and ether(space). This theory is called ‘Pancha maha bhootha theory’.

Just as an atom, a chemical element has no free independent existence so also the five forces in their pure state are never found in nature and what we find are the compounds of the five bhoothas, mixed together in different proportions ie., to say, all gross matter is ‘Pancha maha bhoothas’.

(Note: The bhoothas cannot be traslated into an atom or molecule or paramanu)

Prakrithi and Purusha

In Ayurveda ‘Prakrithi’ is the term given for existence in the unmanifested form from which evolves ‘Purushas’ or humanbeing or the manifested form of existence of nature.

Three Great Cosmic Forces & Three Humour Theory

According to the ancient seers there are three great cosmic forces of existence. First is the principle of energy that sets everything into motion or movement The second is the principle of energy of light or radiance that which undergoes transformation and emits light and heat The third of these forces is the principle of cohesion or force of affinity that which is responsible for all manifestations.

These three primary life forces are manifested in the body as biological humours. they are as follows.

  • Vata-that which controls movement
  • Pitta-that which controls metabolism
  • Kapha-That which controls structure

The balance or equilibrium of the humours makes one healthy while imbalance gives sickness.

Pancha Koshaas.

According to ayurveda, there are five distinct sheaths or koshas.

  • The food sheath or annamaya kosha
  • The vital sheath or air sheath or pranamaya kosha
  • The mental sheath or manomaya kosha
  • The intellectual sheath or vignanamaya kosha
  • The bliss sheath or anandamaya kosha

Before we go into a minute study of the composition and nature of various sheaths, we will try to understand the philosophical implications of the term ‘interior’ when we say that one sheath is interior to the other, we only mean that the inner one is subtler than the outer. The subtlety of a sheath is measured by its pervasiveness. Eg : Four cubic inches of ice could melt into water which can be spread to a larger area and hence philosophically we say water is subtler than ice. If we heat that water it could get converted into steam that can spread itself into the entire atmosphere of the room and we say steam is subtler than water. Similarly the physical body is the grossest. The vital air that we take in can be blown out to pervade a greater area than that which is occupied by the body. So we consider the vital air sheet subtler than gross food sheath.

Food sheath or annamaya kosha

The physical body which everyone of us is fully aware during our waking state of consciousness is termed as food sheath. The substance of the physical structure, rising from food, existing in food and going back to food naturally is termed as food sheath.

The vital sheath or air sheath or pranamaya kosha

The air that we breath in gets mixed up with the blood and reaches every cell of our body. The vital air sheath controls all the organs of action, according to the different function it performs. Ayurveda has classified it under the panchapranas.

The mental sheath or manomaya kosha

None of us is entirely unaware of the existence of a mind in us. Mind is the seat that entertains our emotions, joy, doubt, fears etc. Mind can go in its flights to things and places seen or heard because of it vast reaches, it is considered subtler than the above said or mentioned.

The intellectual sheath or vignanamaya kosha

Very often, we find that the mind and intellect are considered one and the same. But in ayurveda intellect or budhi is considered subtler than mind because it adventures forth into realms farther than what it had heard before or seen. Intellect is the decision maker.

The bliss sheath or anandamaya kosha

This sheath is the seat of pure joy or bliss that transcends all known experiences of oneself before. It happens in a deeper state of consciousness.

How to live in tune with nature

To improve the quality of your life.

In Ayurveda living in tune with nature is something very precise-having healthy desire that match your actual needs. As long as your needs and desires match, you are living in tune with nature. For example your food should taste delicious for you at the same time it should be nutritious.

Everyone has the right to expose himself to any kind of influence he wants but the physician’s role is to warn against those influences that damage our well being. Satva exists in all of us as our instinct for balance, our life enhancing attitudes, our innate dignity and respect for others, and our love. As you increase in Satva, you move in the direction of higher evolution. Then the phrase living in tune with nature reveals its meaning.

Few tips for improving
the quality of your life

  • Wake with the sun everyday in the morning for high energy levels.
  • Be pleasant and tolerant towards everyone
  • Take time everyday for relaxation
  • Act on due reflection, not impulsive or precisely be proactive not reactive
  • Refrain from mental poisons like anger, jealousy, criticism, lying etc
  • Be generous with others in everyway
  • Keep relationships healthy and loving
  • Have moderate exercises daily
  • Eat light and natural foods
  • Sip warm water with your meal
  • Minimise raw foods, cooked foods digest easily
  • Experience all the six tastes in every meal
  • During each meal leave a quarter of your stomach for digestion
  • Avoid violent, crude or shocking books or other forms of entertainment (According to Ayurveda the sight of violence get translated to unhealthy impulses in our cells that can ultimately lead to psychological imbalances.)
  • Avoid negative emotions and people
  • Never eat when you are upset
  • Avoid ice cold drink and food
  • Always sit-down to eat
  • Eat in a settled atmosphere


According to Ayurveda detox or Ayurvedic detox is not just a procedure you follow 3 days or a week to get rid of all the toxic accumulations in your body rather it is an ongoing process lifelong including your Dinacharya(daily routine),Seasonal routine and lankhana Sodhanas.

Dinacharya or daily routine is living in tune with nature respecting its major cycles that support our physical existence.

Special care is advised starting with your daily brushing, gargling of sesame oil , karna poorana(dripping medicated oil in your ears), nasya(instilling nasal drops)all are ways of cleansing mucous membranes of sense organs that comes in contact with exogenous toxins and refreshing all the channels of the body. Daily Abhyanga (oil massage) before regular exercise in the morning is to improve circulation and enhance flushing of toxins through sweating.

Our Special treatment procedures.

Toxins are substances that produce physical, emotional and psychological imbalances in an individual. We are constantly exposed to toxins everyday in our life. In the last several decades our food supply, drinking water, air and soil had become increasingly contaminated with toxic chemicals. Never before has the human body been presented with such a heavy burden of foreign substances to metabolize and eliminate. In addition excessive use of fast food, caffeine and alcohol continue to be wide spread .the body has a certain capacity to detoxify itself, but when this is exceeded, toxins deposit both within and around the cells, causing a wide variety of health problems. Several chronic health problems appear to be related to environmental chemicals.

Endogenous-the normal waste products the body creates in the process of cell function. If the body does not eliminate them adequately, they will remain in the body. Uric acid, a byproduct of protein metabolism is a fine example.

Exogenous toxins are those that are not normally found in the human body such as environmental pollutants like haze, food additives, chemicals, heavy metals and pesticides. Chemical or microbial toxins enter the body through food, water, air or physical contact with the skin or mucous membranes.

Under normal circumstances the body is able to eliminate toxins through urine, faeces, exhalation and perspiration. Thus the major organs involved in elimination are kidneys, colon, lungs and skin. In addition WBC’s of the immune system are designed to metabolize microbial toxins. The liver is the organ primarily responsible for breaking toxins into harmless byproducts which are eliminated in the stool or through the kidneys into urine. The process of elimination can be hampered for one reason or another. When a particular toxin overwhelms the normal excretion mechanism, the body produces inflammation in the area of the toxin trying to rid itself of the problem. These inflammatory areas signal the initiation of a disease. They are actually signals the body is sending, stating that it cannot get rid of the accumulating toxins by itself. If the toxins remain, the body then moves into next stage where they are deposited in areas where they will do the least harm like hair, fat cells, cysts etc. after years of storage these toxins eventually move into body cells and tissues. They ultimately produce diseases like arthritis, diabetes, cancer etc.
