Karkitaka Chikitsa/ Monsoon Treatment in Ayurveda

Karkitaka Chikitsa/ Monsoon Treatment in Ayurveda

Karkidakam is the last month of the Malayalam calendar, which falls during July or August.In Kerala, the Malayalam month of Karkidakam is traditionally considered to be most ideal for undergoing Karkidaka ayurveda treatment. The rains are slowly declining, and this is the time considered to be ideal for undergoing Ayurveda-based body rejuvenation therapies. 

Karkidaka Masam is considered the best for Ayurvedic treatments because the skin softens due to the humidity and monsoon climate. Removal of toxins and negativity from both mind and body is significantly easier than in any other period.

According to Ayurvedic science, Karkidakam comes under the Varsha Ritu, so Vata dosha will be dominant and thus the Bala and Ojas (immunity) will be less. It can lead to a poor immune system, so the chances of waterborne and airborne communicable diseases are high.

Body & health conditions during rainy season:

➢ Low digestion power

➢ Low immunity and Low body strength

Varsha Ritu Charya, rainy/monsoon season regimen according to Ayurveda

Due to moistness and coldness in land and plants, there is an increase of coldness and moistness in the body too. This produces sluggishness of digestive fire, which leads to the accumulation of pitta. There is a simultaneous aggravation of vata in this season. Therefore one should follow the regimen of this season and follow food and lifestyle practices to balance vata and pitta.

Category of Varsha season

Karkitaka Chikitsa

Varsha Rtu (rainy season) is the first season of the Visarga Kala or Dakshinayana i.e. Southern Solstice. It is preceded by Greeshma Rtu (summer season), which happens to be the third and last season of Adana Kala i.e. Northern Solstice. The rainy season is followed by Sharad / Sharat Rtu i.e. autumn season, the second season of the Visarga Kala. Southern Solstice. Thus, rainy season is the first season of the Southern Solstice.

Features of Rainy Season

Moon is predominant in this season. In this season, like any other season of Southern Solstice, the Sun moves southwards.

This season gives strength to the person. This happens because the heat reduces in this season as the heat-predominant northern solstice ends with the end of summer. The climate too becomes cold in comparison to the summer. Along with this, the sky is covered with clouds and there is rain. There is an increase in watery ingredients, moistness, fluidity, and strength of the plants and living beings.

The winds are present. The winds in southern solstice are not dry and fierce, but in the rainy season, the winds are comparably dry since the climate is closer to the summer. This further causes aggravation of vata in the body.

One should remember that vata accumulated naturally in the summer season due to extreme dryness but had not undergone aggravation due to the presence of heat, which is antagonistic to the coldness quality of vata.

But in the monsoon season, the dryness of the climate is associated with coldness. Both these together become strong aggravating factors for vata. Therefore vata aggravation takes place in the rainy season. If not controlled, it may cause vata disorders. During this period, karkidaka ayurveda treatment is highly recommended to help balance the aggravated vata dosha and enhance overall health. Sour, salt, and sweet tastes are predominant in food, plants, water, and medicines. These three tastes increase the strength of an individual. These three tastes are antagonistic to Vata. These three tastes enhance the water content of the body and keep the body hydrated. Therefore the foods and medicines having these tastes shall be consumed to keep the vata in control.

Dosha status in the rainy season:

Detoxification Therapy

 In the rainy season, the aggravation of vata takes place. At the same time, the accumulation of pitta takes place. Vata aggravates due to the dryness of the climate associated with coldness. In the rainy season, the medicines are of less potency owing to the cloud-filled sky and water content of the earth due to constant rain. The land gets moist with rain. So the moistness in the body also eventually increased along with the coldness. The effect of all these events leads to reduced digestive power/fire leading to improper digestion of food. This leads to the accumulation of pitta in the monsoon season.

Taste predominance: Predominant taste of rainy season – Amla rasa i.e. sour taste is predominant in the rainy season. This taste is made up of earth and fire elements. To an extent, the sour taste pacifies vata. In the monsoon season, as we have discussed already, there is vitiation of vata.

A sour taste helps in combating vata when taken in the form of food and medicines having a sour taste. At the same time, the fiery quality of the sour taste and the sour taste itself is responsible for increasing pitta. In the rainy season, pitta accumulation takes place. Though the unctuousness etc qualities of the karkitaka chikitsa in Tigris Valley are favorable for pitta accumulation, the coldness of the season being antagonistic to pitta doesn’t allow aggravation of pitta. Thus pitta only undergoes accumulation but doesn’t undergo aggravation in this season

Diet in rainy season:

o In rainy season, one should drink medicated water and rice along with honey.

o One should consume sour, salt and unctuous foods. These foods are anti-vata and would pacify the aggravated vata in rainy season,

o One should be allowed to use old grains for preparing foods and also to consume meat juice processed with spices.

o Meat and meat soup of animals living in desert-like lands should be used.

o There are variations and fluctuations of digestive fire in the rainy season. Therefore, foods that balance and protect the digestive fire should be given to the ear. 

For example, foods prepared with old barley, wheat, rice, processed meat soup, dal soups, etc.

o Alcoholic preparations shall be taken in small quantities and diluted form. One can take medicated alcoholic preparations like madhvika and arishta added with honey in limited proportions. Wine prepared from grapes and fermented decoctions which are old shall be used.

o Honey usually increases vata but in the rainy season wherein there is aggravation of vata, honey can be taken in small proportions. When taken in little quantities it helps in combating excessive moistness in the body. Excessive moisture in the body will cause an increase of kapha and pitta which will cause diminution of digestive fire, consequentially leading to deficit nutrition to the tissues and tissue destruction eventually causing Vata increase. Honey controls the excessive formation of moistness in the body.

o One should drink boiled water, well water, or water from the reservoirs in the rainy season. These waters should be well boiled before consumption.

o One is permitted to consume the supernatant part of curds/whey mixed with powder of salt and powder of panchakola.

o One needs to avoid drinking river water in the rainy season. At the same time, he shall also avoid churned preparations having a lot of quantity of water.

Other Regimens, Activities, and therapies

During the rainy season, ayurveda karkidaka chikitsa is highly recommended to maintain health and prevent seasonal ailments.

During monsoon season, one should avoid the below mentioned –

Panchakarma treatment

o Sleeping during day time

o Exposure to mist

o Excessive exercise

o Excessive indulgence in sexual intercourse

o Excessive exposure to hot sun

o Moving about on foot

o River water

o Beverage prepared with flour of corns mixed with ghee.

Below mentioned activities are beneficial and conducive in rainy season and hence advocated to be followed during rainy season:

o Rubbing the body with coarse medicated powders or thick cloth

o Rubbing the body with unctuous powders of medicinal herbs

o Bathing

o Wearing of fragrant garlands

o Wearing light and clean clothes

o One should expose his clothes to fragrant fumes before wearing

Monsoon Ayurveda treatments in Tigris Valley:

Varmana i.e. therapeutic emesis and Virechana i.e. therapeutic purgation should be administered for purifying the body in rainy season. After the body gets purified following the administration of emesis and purgation, cleansing/decoction enemas should be administered to control vata.

Ayurveda has selectively recognized monsoon season as the best time for receiving Panchakarma Rejuvenation therapies. Panchakarma is a curative treatment that deeply cleanses and detox body treatment without damaging the tissues. It reinforces the immune system and leaves the body healthier, stronger and free from chronic ailments.

The Panchakarma treatment program is a unique opportunity to cleanse and rejuvenate both physically and mentally in a pure, spiritual and yogic environment. One should approach the program with the desire to retreat from normal life and use the time to reconnect to body, mind and soul.

The Benefits of Doing an Ayurvedic Retreat During Monsoon

The Benefits of Doing an Ayurvedic Retreat During Monsoon

As the monsoon rains begin to rejuvenate the earth, there is no better time to rejuvenate your body and mind than with an Ayurvedic retreat. This ancient Indian system of medicine, which emphasizes balance and wellness through natural means, finds its most potent season in monsoon ayurveda.

Why Monsoon is the Best Time for an Ayurvedic Retreat

The monsoon season, known as “Varsha Ritu” in Ayurveda, is considered an ideal time for undergoing monsoon Ayurvedic treatments. During this period, the atmosphere is moist and cool, which opens up the body’s pores, making it more receptive to Ayurvedic therapies. The humidity and temperature during monsoon help to enhance the efficacy of the treatments, ensuring better absorption of herbal medications and oils used in various therapies.

Here are some compelling benefits of embarking on an Ayurvedic retreat during this season, especially with the exclusive facilities we offer during this limited period.

1. Enhanced Absorption of Therapies

The monsoon season, with its moderate temperature and high humidity, is considered the best time for Ayurvedic treatments. The pores of the skin open up, making it easier for medicinal oils and herbal pastes to be absorbed. This leads to more effective detoxification and healing processes, ensuring you get the most out of each therapy session.

2. Strengthening Immunity

Monsoon ayurveda treatment

During the monsoon, the body is more susceptible to infections and illnesses due to fluctuating weather conditions. Monsoon ayurveda treatment focuses on boosting immunity through a combination of detoxification therapy, a balanced diet, and herbal medications. Our free doctor consultations ensure that you receive personalized advice to strengthen your immune system and maintain optimal health.

3. Skin and Hair Care

The increased humidity during monsoon can exacerbate skin and hair problems. Ayurvedic treatments offer natural solutions to these issues. Herbal oils and formulations used in massages and treatments help to nourish the skin and hair, keeping them healthy and vibrant.

4. Detoxification and Rejuvenation

The damp, cool monsoon weather is ideal for Panchakarma, the comprehensive Ayurvedic detoxification program. Panchakarma helps eliminate toxins from the body, balance the doshas (body energies), and rejuvenate the system. Our retreat offers specialized Panchakarma treatments tailored to your individual needs, supervised by experienced practitioners.

5. Customized Ayurvedic Diet

A significant part of Ayurvedic therapy is the diet, which is customized to your body’s constitution (Prakriti) and the specific imbalances (Vikriti) you might have. During the monsoon, digestion can be sluggish, and our Ayurvedic diet plans focus on easy-to-digest, nourishing foods that enhance digestion and assimilation, promoting overall health and well-being.

One of the significant benefits of Ayurvedic wellness treatment is natural pain management. Post-surgery, patients often rely heavily on painkillers, which can have various side effects. Ayurvedic herbs like turmeric, ginger, and boswellia possess potent anti-inflammatory properties that can help alleviate pain and swelling, reducing the need for conventional pain medication.Proper nutrition is crucial for recovery post-surgery. The body requires essential nutrients to repair damaged tissues and strengthen bones. Ayurvedic principles guide individuals in choosing the right foods and herbs that support healing and aid in the formation of new tissues. A balanced diet rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals is recommended, alongside specific Ayurvedic preparations to enhance recovery.

Holistic Joint Pain treatment and Prevention at Tigris Valley Ayurvedic Wellness Retreat

At Tigris Valley, our Ayurvedic wellness retreat in Kerala, we believe that ailments in the body, including joint pain, are caused by an imbalance in the three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Any such imbalance can obstruct the flow of prana (life force) and affect nutrient circulation. Joint pain can result from physical injury, wear and tear, or underlying disease. In Ayurveda, joint pain is primarily due to an imbalanced Vata Dosha, which handles movement, blood flow, waste evacuation, and breathing. An excess of Ama, a metabolic toxin, in the joints leads to pain and stiffness.

Common Symptoms and Signs of Joint Pain

Joint pain, including knee pain and frozen shoulders, is a common complaint among adults, often caused by busy lifestyles and physical strain. Symptoms include joint redness, tenderness, limping, stiffness, weakness, reduced range of motion, swelling, or muscle cramps. Those with sedentary desk jobs, physically demanding activities, or older adults are particularly prone to joint pain. Our focus is on providing comprehensive Ayurvedic joint pain treatment through natural remedies and holistic practices. 

Underlying Problems of Joint Pain

Joint pain can stem from underuse, overuse, or viral infections. Chronic joint pain is often associated with arthritis, a leading cause of joint discomfort. Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that worsens with age, with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis being the most common types.


Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent form of arthritis, caused by the gradual wearing away of cartilage that protects bones in a joint. This condition develops slowly, often beginning in middle age, and affects millions globally. It can impact various joints, including hands, knees, hips, and spine. Risk factors include weak muscles, family history, obesity, previous injuries, age, and gender, with older adults and women being more susceptible.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that causes pain and swelling in joints, as the immune system attacks the joint lining. In Ayurveda, this condition is known as Amavata, resulting from the accumulation of Ama in the joints, causing pain and swelling. It typically affects multiple joints simultaneously, especially in the hands, wrists, and knees. Severe rheumatoid arthritis can lead to significant joint damage and loss of alignment.

Ayurvedic Medicines for Joint Pain and Care at Tigris Valley

Joint pain, whether chronic or mild, affects millions globally. It often starts as a minor discomfort that can quickly escalate into a chronic condition if ignored. At Tigris Valley, our Ayurveda retreat in Kerala focuses on incorporating natural remedies and practices into daily life to ensure joint health and smooth functioning. Ayurveda offers a wide range of natural remedies and herbal blends specifically for joint pain and care.

1. Turmeric (Curcuma Longa)

Turmeric, or Haldi, is a bright yellow spice often used in Ayurvedic remedies. Curcumin in turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer properties that significantly reduce joint pain. Especially beneficial for people with rheumatoid arthritis, turmeric improves joint flexibility and support, making it highly effective for knee pain. 

2. Ginger (Zingiber officinale)

Ginger is another commonly used spice that can significantly improve joint pain. Studies show that ginger extract reduces symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee. With its anti-inflammatory properties, ginger improves joint health and reduces pain. Regular consumption of ginger helps reduce ama in the joints, restoring optimal Vata Dosha levels.

3. Ayurvedic Oils for Joints

Ayurvedic oils have been used for centuries for their therapeutic properties. Abhyanga, or oil massages with warm oil, calm the body and mind while significantly reducing pain. We also recommend regular abhyanga massages using Ayurvedic oils, which ensure joint flexibility, stability, and smooth movement. At Tigris Valley, our expert practitioners deliver these massages as part of our joint pain treatment.

Common Preventions for Joint Care at Tigris Valley

Our Ayurvedic wellness hospital integrates the philosophy ‘Prevention is better than cure’ through comprehensive preventive measures for holistic health and well-being. Central to Ayurveda is the concept of Nidana Parivarjana, or the avoidance of causative factors, which is the first step in disease prevention.

For those seeking an ayurvedic treatment, Tigris Valley offers a range of solutions and lifestyle practices designed to prevent joint pain. Incorporating healthy habits such as regular exercise, avoiding tobacco products, maintaining a balanced diet, and keeping a healthy body weight can significantly reduce joint pain and related issues. It is also essential to be cautious during strenuous physical activities, such as working out or lifting heavy objects, as they can strain weight-bearing joints.

At our wellness retreat in Kerala, we emphasize the importance of integrating Ayurvedic herbal remedies and ingredients into daily routines. These can be consumed in various forms, such as tablets, capsules, herbal teas, or powders. Additionally, our Panchakarma treatment in Kerala provides a deep detoxification process that enhances joint health and overall well-being.
