Endometriosis is a condition where the tissues found lining the uterus are also found growing in areas outside the uterus. Often women with endometriosis complain of painful menstruation.
Menstrual flow is dominated by the Vata dosha. Therefore, during menstruation, there is aggravation of Vata dosha resulting in increased pain.
When present on the ovaries, cysts may enlarge to several cm in size. This stage is dominated by Vata along with Kapha dosha.
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:
Unwholesome diet and lifestyle are mentioned as a causative factor
Pradustartava (can be linked to hormonal imbalance, IVF treatments, and contraceptive pills ..)
Bija dosha (abnormality of sperm and ovum/ genetic factors)
Daiva (Idiopathic factors/ unknown causes)

Ayurveda approaches fertility by treating both the male and female, guiding couples in times of pre-conception, conception, and postpartum.
During your Ayurvedic consultation, a specialised treatment program, lifestyle changes and herbal recommendations will be provided.
Ayurveda provides a wealth of knowledge on the transition into Menopause.
Menopause treatment at Lakshmi Ayurveda will include a holistic approach. Menopause is often a tridoshic imbalance and treatment will include addressing areas such as emotional and mental health, weight gain, and hot flashes; all depending on each client's unique needs.
Granthi chikitsa is generally adopted when establishing a treatment plan for Adenomyosis. Granthi is a Sanskrit word meaning cyst, swelling, benign growth.
Another disease mentioned in the classical texts of Ayurveda is called Arbuda. Arbuda is a disease characterised by the growth of a mass.
Granthi refers to modular or glandular swelling with a hard, knotty and rough appearance. C.Chi 12:83
Granthi (cyst, swelling, benign growth) Treatment: 1. Increase the digestive function. 2. Reduce the muscle, blood and fatty tissue. 3. The ailment is tridoshic with Vata/Kapha predominance therefore pacifying treatment for Vata and Kapha is adopted. 4. For reducing Kapha, lekhana treatment is performed. Lekhana is a treatment with a scraping and reducing effect.

Primary Amenorrhea is the failure to menstruate during puberty. In Ayurveda, this is called prathamika anartava and is mainly attributed to congenital defects or hypo-pituitarism and hypothyroidism.
Secondary Amenorrhea– is much more common and is the absence of menses for six months. Problems may arise due to a disorder occurring in the uterine endometrium, the ovaries, the anterior pituitary or the hypothalamus. Amenorrhea can also be a physiological condition for instance during pregnancy, lactation and menopause.
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.
The most caring Panchakarma of my life

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.
Thank you so much for this beautiful, healing experience!

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. They 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.
The Panchakarma treatments with Karin have changed my life
