Kelsey was diagnosed with endometriosis and had been experiencing all the symptoms related to the condition. We tailored a Panchakarma program for her, she was committed and willing to do the necessary lifestyle and diet changes. After her program, all of her symptoms have dramatically reduced and she feels a new person.

Here is Kelsey’s testimonial:

“The Panchakarma treatments with Karin have changed my life. Prior to starting Panchakarma, I experienced significant digestion issues, menstrual pain, trouble sleeping, anaemia, fatigue and emotional blockages. My gynaecologist recommended I undergo laparoscopic surgery and immediately start hormonal treatments to cure my assumed endometriosis. I opted out of the surgery and hormones and decided I wanted to take an Ayurvedic approach to regaining my health through Panchakarma treatments with Karin. The decision was one of the best of my life.

Karin and her therapists were extremely supportive during the treatments. I loved being at the clinic and seeing them daily. Their emotional support was genuine and unmatched by any medical professional I have ever met. The symptoms I faced prior to Panchakarma have miraculously reduced. My friends tell me I look brighter (and I can actually see it in myself). My quality of life on a mental, spiritual and physical level have improved dramatically. Karin is inspiring, genuine, caring, and extremely knowledgeable in her understanding of Ayurveda. Lakshmi Ayurveda has been an absolute blessing to my life. I recommend visiting the clinic to everyone.

With all my Light and Love I thank you,

Kelsey”

 

We just said goodbye to a lovely in-patient. It’s amazing that we can have our patients staying at Lakshmi Ayurveda for their program. Even though it’s a bit sad when they go back home, it’s amazing when we hear back how amazing they feel and how their lives have positively changed after their Panchakarma program at Lakshmi Ayurveda.

Here’s Florence’s testimonial:

“I just had the most caring panchakarma of my life at Lakshmi. Karin was outstanding in the way she would explain all the outcomes possible to every small step of the treatment, making me secure and more interested through the process. My friends have been telling me how glowing I am, and they have no idea how good it feels inside. I feel centred, having the body and mind functioning in their best in years! I left Lakshimi promising myself to do it regularly. So I’ll be back for this encounter to my highest I. Love&Light to all therapist there. Florence”

Isn’t it amazing that you can experience an authentic Panchakarma treatment in Australia? Many people think that they would need to travel overseas to be able to have this wonderful cleanse process. At Lakshmi Ayurveda we offer authentic classic Panchakarma treatment, where you can also stay as an in-patient and enjoy our beautiful clinic facilities. We just had a lovely patient staying with us; she left us with this beautiful card that made all of us feel so loved, inspired and grateful….

Thank you so much for this beautiful, healing experience!

“Dearest Karin,

Thank you so much for this beautiful, healing experience! I am so grateful for everything over the past two weeks. You are an amazing healer, practitioner and teacher!

Real healing only happens when one can be open, feel vulnerable and surrender in the presence of the practitioner, and you definitely create that space – so thank you!

This has been such an incredible learning experience for me, about myself, about health physically, mentally and spiritually, and about Ayurveda! And thank you for the opportunity to stay here too, it made it that much more special for me! Stepping away from daily habits and into this sanctuary you have created here! I’m feeling so inspired now for life, my mind is so much more clear, my tummy doesn’t feel as heavy and I have consistent energy throughout the day. So thank you, and also a special thank to Aki, Talu and Irena for their support during the Panchakarma too! My mind is now filled with all the knowledge you have passed on to me, I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon Ayurveda and all the beauty it has to offer!

Much love, A.”

Every Panchakarma treatment that we do is an inspiration to us. When we get feedbacks like this one is so rewarding! We definitely love what we do – helping people in such a deep level is a life changing experience for us as well.

Testimonial for Panchakarma

As man in late middle age and suffering from the stresses of 21st century living, being overweight, foggy brained, listless and tired with the attendant problems of high blood pressure, high sugar and cholesterol levels, I knew I was in need of a remedy.

As seems to be the case when a need becomes pressing I was offered a possible solution for the alleviation of my ailments. I went for a walk with a friend who told me of this program and that he was seriously considering following it. This intrigued me and after a struggle with my ego who was trying to talk me out of it I made the commitment to undertake the program.

Although I was aware of ayurvedic medicine I had no idea of what its premise was or what it entailed, so I had no preconceived notions or expectations.

The process itself began with a consultation with Karin who was very caring and obviously fully committed to her work. I realised that far from being a simple detoxification program it was specifically tailored to my needs and offered the promise of relief from some chronic issues that were curtailing my life quality.

The first three days were difficult but not as difficult as I imagined and I realised that much of the discomfort was due to the sacrifice of my cherished habits which whilst enjoyable were not exactly healthy, especially the quantities in which they were indulged.

After that the process became more and more enjoyable under the nurturing hands of Karin, Talu and Aki. I especially enjoyed the hot turmeric oil massages and Shirodhara (the pouring of warm oil upon the forehead).

I felt a bit uncomfortable about the enema’s but my concern was unwarranted as the process was painless and not embarrassing.

I have just recently finished the program but can feel that my body is still at work and so I expect that the benefits of the process will continue.

As to the benefits: My blood pressure is significantly lower as are my cholesterol and sugar levels. My skin is clear, my eyes bright and for the first time in years I am not having to get up at night time to go to the bathroom. My lower back pain has disappeared and I am hopeful that my arthritic knee will also improve overtime.

In addition, my mind is clear my mood has improved, I am waking up fresh and I have lost the desire for sweet things.

As a bonus I lost 5kg in two weeks and it is very gratifying to look down and be able to see my feet.

Finally the Panchakarma program supports any psychological or spiritual process one is undertaking as it helps integrate mind and body which is vital for well being and so often overlooked in the fragmentary chaos of wester civilisation.

So if you are looking to improve your health and promote lifestyle change I heartily recommend taking the Panchakarma Program.

Thanks for taking the time to read this missive.

I just received a phone call from a lady who has undergone her Panchakarma treatment (May/June 2017).

She had treatment for endometriosis, large ovarian cysts and fibroids. The cyst were quiet large and rapid growing in size that her Obstetrician recommend surgery to her.

She did not want to undergo surgery and choose the path of Ayurvedic Medicine.

Endometriosis is an ailment where the cells that are normally found lining the uterus are also found in other areas of the body but usually within the pelvis. Endometrial tissue can also be found in the ovary where it can form cysts.

Often women with endometriosis often complaint of painful menstruation.

The stage of menstrual flow is dominated by the vata dosha. Hence during the stage there is aggravation of vata dosha resulting in increased pain.

With the progression of the of endometriosis adhesion my develop. When present on the ovary, cysts may enlarge to several cm in size (as it did with the lady who has undergone PK treatment). This stage is dominated by Vata along with Kapha dosha.

Disorders of the female reproductive system are explained in the classics under the entity of Yoni vyapad and arthava vyapad.

Endometriosis can be correlated to Vatala Yonivyapad. Charaka mentioned the cause and symptoms in the Charaka Samhita Chi 30/22 (classical ayurvedic textbook).

Nidana (causative factors) is said to be four:

  1. Unwholesome diet and lifestyle are mentioned as causative factor
  2. Pradustartava (can be linked to hormonal imbalance, IVF treatments, contraceptive pills ..)
  3. bija dosha (abnormality of sperm and ovum/ genetic factors)
  4. Daiva (Idiopathic factors/ unknown causes)

 

Principles of ayurvedic treatment

To treat a disease is by understanding the dosha, dushya and nidana

The doshas involved are Vata pradhana (mainly vata) with kapha anubandha (kapha associated). So the treatment should focus on vata shamana (pacifying the vata dosha) and lekhana to reduce the Kapha dosha and aim for srotosodhana (clearing obstructions e.g. cysts).

 

 

Our lady who was undergoing treatment had

  1. Deepana/Pachana (improving the digestive fire and digesting Ama/ digestive toxins)
  2. Snehapana (internal oleation)
  3. cassical Virechana (purgation)
  4. Basti treatment
  5. along this ayurvedic medicines where prescribed.

First pelvic ultrasound examination was done on the 26th of April showing cysts from 2.5 cm to 6.8 cm.

After classical Virechana treatment another scan was done on the 23 of May 2017 showing cyts in the size of 1.5am to 2.6 cm already significantly reduced.

Then Yoga basti treatment was performed at the clinic and another scan was done on the 21st of June.

Showing that there are no evidence of the previous 5 cm endometrioma/ haemorrhagic cyst.

This is just wonderful. Also very important to say this lady is just inspirational with her positive outlook trust and believe in Ayurveda.

 

My Experiences of Ayurveda

After experiencing the benefits of Ayurvedic massage treatments whilst on holidays in India, it has been an enormous blessing to discover Karin. Her extensive knowledge, experience and very loving nature make her a highly credible practitioner.

The principles of Ayurveda make very good sense to me as I seek to improve my health and live a more balanced lifestyle. The health benefits I have gained in a very short time through the massage treatments, herbs and diet have been amazing!

Recently I travelled to the city for two weeks of the Panchakarma treatment. The only way I can try to explain the outcome of this amazing experience is by the responses of my family, friends and colleagues upon my return home. I’ve had the most lovely and flattering comments about how great I look to how order viagra generic much I’m glowing and how my skin and hair look amazing! Of course I feel so ‘clean’ and so well, and now I’m very conscious of maintaining this incredible wellness by being more vigilant in practising the basic Ayurvedic principles especially the diet to balance my  doshas.

Thank you Karin …for your very caring and professional approach and especially for maintaining the authenticity and integrity of Ayurveda – a very important and powerful ancient health system.
