My Experiences of Ayurveda, Panchakarma
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 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.
The warmth and professionalism Karin showed during my panchakarma was above reproach. I could feel the benefits of my treatment almost immediately. Once I had finished my treatment, I felt a sense of lightness, joy and mental clarity, of which I had not felt in years. Since my treatment, my fresh outlook on life has opened up many wonderful opportunities for me. I remain grateful for my treatment, and cannot wait for my next panchakarma. I would highly recommend Karin and the panchakarma treatment to anyone wanting to treat and nurture their body, mind and soul. Thank-you again Karin for such a beautiful experience.
Appreciation of Ayurveda
Thank you for the introduction to Ayurveda you opened my mind and body to this wonderful world of healing and have given me a much deeper understanding and appreciation of Ayurveda.You truly are a wonderful person with such compassion and professionalism that compliments the wonderful work you do.Throughout the weeks I felt so well cared for, you guided me through every treatment with such detail and loving care.
After experiencing years of operations, medications and accumulated toxins in my body I am now feeling totally energized and rejuvenated and in a much healthier and happy position within myself. Panchakarma has been an amazing life changing experience the effects are truly profound.
Karin I am forever grateful for the tremendous amount of love and support you offered me throughout the weeks you are so inspirational and committed.
It Was Bliss
I want to thank you for a wonderful massage & sauna last week. After the treatment I was totally relaxed… it was bliss. I will certainly try and slot more of these treatments in the future.
Thank you for suggesting Brahmi for my insomnia it has been so good and even if I have woken during the night I just go straight back to sleep. I am not normally a person who uses herbal medicines but this has changed my mind, in more ways than one!
I just wanted to say thank you for all the care & attention you have given me in my treatments – I really appreciate everything you have helped me with!
I just would like to thank you for all the care and knowledge that you have imparted to me these past few months. I am extremely happy with the Pancakarma results because I have never seen anything like it. I am quite amazed that there is always a solution to any health problem as long as you are open to learning and experiencing. I am very confident in your wealth of knowledge as an Ayurvedic doctor and absolutely love your warmth and grace as a wife, mother and friend. I don’t think I can thank you enough as you have definitely changed my life for the better. I now have a new outlook in life and a new perception on health care. I will always aspire to be a religious student of Ayurveda and continue my lifetime journey of balance, good health and spiritual awakening.

Thank you very much for the consultation I had last month. Its been really amazing to get such good results from the advice you gave me. My headaches at night disappeared, I got my periods back within 3 weeks (and it was a nice normal menstruation with no PMS!), my mouth ulcers healed quickly and I feel as though I have more energy. The coating on my tongue is slowly receding (so fascinating to watch!)…

Ligament and Meniscus Tear – Upanaha Treatment
I am just letting you know that I believe I am walking much easier today. Not so much pain and more fluidity in the walk. Did the poultice this morning and left it on for ages as it felt so nice. ( my dog likes eating any time that falls on the floor!)
Panchakarma Cleansing From Within
Recently I saw Karin for a Panchakarma Treatment. It was one of the most healing and life changing experiences I have ever had. Karin at all times was very professional and monitored my progress at every stage very carefully.
Before Panchakarma I was toxic due to western life as well as my body being subjected to extensive courses of antibiotics. After Panchakarma I felt lighter emotionally, physically I was 5 kilos lighter and the back problem I have had for many years had disappeared. The wisdom of Ayurveda passed on to me through Karin has given me the tools to live a much healthier richer life.
Thank you so much Karin!

You are amazing!!! I feel like me again. Thank you so much
Just wanted to let you know how much better I am feeling after only a matter of days. I am enjoying my daily rituals & supplements & my energy & enthusiasm have returned. Today I spent the morning on the beach with my Mom & her little dog & the afternoon in my garden weeding, mulching, picking pumpkin & sweet potato, which I haven’t had the energy to do for months. I then made mung bean soup & went for a walk. You are amazing!!! I feel like me again. Thank you so much.
I have never before had such a result
Thank you for suggesting the Neem powder for the Tick Bites. Within 36 hours all swelling, redness pain and itching has disappeared. Only a red dot remains and the discomfort in my armpit has also gone. I have never before had such a result with any of the other remedies I have ever tried. In the past the bites have taken 4-6 weeks before all the swelling, redness and itching has disappeared.
Again many thanks.

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.

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

Panchakarma testimonial – Yoga Basti
I wanted to share with you all, a WONDERFUL Ayurvedic healer Karin from Lakshmi Ayurveda
I had a Yoga Basti (part of the Panchakarma) 9 day cleanse & other treatments, for a few things; allergies, food intolerances, bowel disease (crohns) & healing for my Uterus (after 3 miscarriages).
All I can say is WOW!!.. I am feeling so much better already & im on my way to health & vitality once again. My bowel & uterus have responded instantly to the treatments, I no longer have terrible pain (in either area) – things are coming back to normal.
Karin is so loving, supportive & a wealth of amazing knowledge. I am blown away! After years of many different doctors, natural healing & remedies, I have found what works for me – Ayurveda & my Angel Karin
What a blessing to find someone so in tune with my spiritual path & who is in alignment with energy, knowledge & heart
I highly recommend going to Karin!
Well I was in heaven with my treatment yesterday, thank you so much. I didn’t realise how special the Shirodhara is.
A Nice Complement
Last week I was crossing at one of the intersection at Perth when a lady approached me to compliment me on one of your lipsticks I was wearing, she loved the colour and said how nice it looked on me
Thank you – I am feeling great and have lost 3-4 kg! mmmm!
