" Back home...
With this mail i just want to thank you again for a very well service and staff. Please give my warmly thanks to my doctors, therapists and acupuncture and yoga teacher. They did a fantastic job!
As a present to myself, i give myself 3 free work days to give me time to smelt my ayurvedic treatment experience! Thank you very much!"
" Thank you very much, for making our recent visit an immense experience, and a very pleasurable and memorable trip. I came with preconceived notions for myself, of receiving the typical Western deep tissue massage techniques. But boy, was I in for a very pleasant treat.
I thoroughly enjoyed all the thoughtfully prescribed treatments, that have helped rejuvenate my mind, body and soul. In the beginning, I wasn’t too excited about being on a “controlled” diet, but I now fully understand the need for abstinence and fully embrace the methodology.
I would like to sincerely thank each and every one at Rajah Healthy Acres and beyond, all the doctors that came to visit us from Rajah Island and Rajah Beach.
I am so grateful and blessed to have made lifelong friends with all the humble, caring, empathetic people that I was so lucky to cross paths with at RHA.
During my stay at RHA, I have acquired some Ayurvedic knowledge (I had read some prior to coming, but receiving first hand treatments is definitely a showstopper), and fully understand as to why the treatments are done the way they are, and how they benefit the body.
Incidentally, I had a conventional massage on Saturday, and definitely compared and missed the Uzhichil treatment. I have just ordered my first bottle of Organic Sesame oil with the 9 herbs, so that I may give myself my first Abhyanga treatment. So excited!
I loved the early morning yoga, in company of my beautiful, loving and caring sister and brother-in-law, Nimet & Nazmu. And under the kind and expert supervision I enjoyed the food / tea & juice tradeoffs and the occasional “steal”, lovingly planned and catered.
I humbly thank each and every one of you, for all the care, kindness, love, compassion, encouragement, empathy, happiness, laughter and fun you bestowed on us each day.
You made us feel right at home, like we were staying with our own family. When I got back home, I had an emptiness in me as I missed you all, I felt the void of being pampered and well-nourished during my stay at RHA. This was a very emotional, fulfilling and incredibly memorable trip, and I can’t wait to see you all again very soon.
A BIG Thank to all the Doctors, for making our stay incredibly welcoming and nurturing all our needs. THANK YOU!
I know there are many many more people, that we did not interact with personally, but are a crucial part of your team, and who make our stay so comfortable. I thank each one of them for making our experience so memorable. Until we meet the next time, I sign off with my heartfelt prayers and thoughts for each one of you. "
" It was a pleasure staying with you at Rajah Beach!
The first consultation was very good and I really was glad to have regular consultations every day.
The girls and women doing the treatments do a great job. They are loving and caring. They took my hand and brought me to the treatment room. I enjoyed the treatments. I never experienced being washed after the treatment. This was such a pleasure. Sometimes I felt like a child, being washed and taken care of.
A new experience was also that I always received my medicine, my fruit juice or my fruits - whereever I was they found me. Great job.
I also enjoyed the activities you offered: to the cooking, Saree binding etc.
And I really loved the food. I appreciated it so much that I will surely miss it.
All in all there is a loving and caring atmosphere. "
" March 19th, 2005 completely changed Sadru’s life. He was injured in a road traffic accident; stuck by a car which left him totally paralyzed. He was used to traveling 200 days a year, keeping fit by jogging and swimming every day. All he could do after the accident was move his neck and with no movement of any other part of the body. He spent 22 months in the hospital. The clinical condition was quadriplegia following Spinal cord injury. He was completely bedridden.
We heard about the Rajah Ayurveda through a family friend in Toronto who had benefited a lot from ayurvedic treatment there. Our first visit was in January 2009. His special needs; a hospital bed, air mattress and most importantly people willing to physically transfer him were provided. We were housed in this big villa, Neem Cottage, about a kilometer from the main facility. Sadru’s consulting doctor planned the treatment protocol and described in detail about the internal medications. The therapists came to the villa and the Panchakarma and other special therapies were done in the Panchakarma room attached with the cottage. As we were feeling lonely in that huge mansion the doctor suggested that we move to the Tulsi Cottages where the rooms were closer and filled with health seekers round the world. We were seeing a lot of people and were extremely happy with the move. We met very interesting peoples to share experiences, the most memorable guest being Gaby Somers from Germany.
The therapies proved to be beneficial. Sadru’s sensation and motor movements improved. Due to these positive results, we decided to go back for Ayurvedic therapy again in September 2009. By this time the Beach facility was ready and operational. This facility is extremely wheelchair friendly. The bedroom, dining room and therapy rooms are all on the ground level. The doctor in charge of the facility tried some different therapies; most of his therapies are related to the Central Nervous System. Two therapies were quite unusual – they used goat’s meat and fish from the rice paddies for the bundle massage treatments! Treatments were also given to minimize sediments in the urine and to treat the retention of urine.
Meanwhile we were concerned about another condition. Sadru had a small growth, the size of a pea, on his left eyelid which was preventing the eye to open fully. We consulted with an eye surgeon in Cochin in January 2015. The surgeon said that he may need surgery to correct this problem. He recommended that we can first try ayurvedic treatment before considering surgery. The doctors suggested some treatments. One was application of a paste to his eyelid every day. Within 2 weeks the growth disappeared!
Since Sadru continues to make improvements we have been going for Ayurvedic treatments every year; and a room is permanently reserved for us! We have now completed a total of 8 visits. Sadru’s treatments now also include physical therapy, acupuncture and yoga as well.
The Ayurvedic treatments have been extremely beneficial for Sadru, both physically and mentally. Besides the wonderful treatments, we also got an opportunity to meet a lot of wonderful people from different walks of life. We have also had the honor of meeting the owners of the facility and enjoyed their hospitality.
It is 10 years since Sadru’s accident. With all the treatments – ayurveda, stem cell transplant, intensive physical therapy, Sadru is now able to sit in his wheelchair for long periods (up to 14 hours), feed himself and also use the computer. There has been quite a lot of progress in the last 10 years from being able to only move his neck to being able to use the computer. He has been able to write several papers in his field of agribusiness for magazines. This is something he had wanted to do for a long time and was finally able to do it.
With the grace of God, I think a lot of healing has taken place due to his positive attitude towards life and having accepted what has happened to him. We are very grateful to our family and friends who have been praying for us and supported us every step of the way.
Our special thanks also to the entire Ayurvedic team for their immense kindness and willingness to make our stay such a memorable one, year after year. We really appreciate their warmth and compassion.
" When I look back at my life today, I never imagined I would achieve so much. My life events are truly a medical phenomenon and my remedy was Ayurveda.
I was born in Canada with a disability called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita. This means my muscles and joints were stiff at birth and my muscles and joints were not fully developed. Doctors had little hope in the life I was going to live. They presumed I would grow up with slow mental development and limited muscle movement which would make me fully dependent on activities of daily living [dressing, eating, etc.] and they also said I would never be able to walk.
Lucky for me, I was blessed with a supportive family. My parents never gave up on me and always looked for some hope to help make me better. Finally they came across a way of medicine that has been practiced for many years, that is Ayurveda.
The first time I had tried Ayurveda treatments, I was 5 years old. My neck was tilted to one side because I did not have enough strength in my neck muscles to keep my head up. The tilt in my neck was a potential danger as it would eventually prevent oxygen from reaching my brain.
We flew to India where I had three sessions of Ayurveda (each 28 days long) as they worked on my neck and on my legs. With a lot of effort from the doctors and faith, within six months, I was able to hold my neck up straight and I took my first steps.
When I came back to Canada, my pediatrician and the many doctors involved in my case were completely shocked at my unexpected progress. Along my years I continued to be treated medically and had approximately 23 surgeries from the time of birth to correct my deformities in my arms and legs. When I completed my schooling, although I was mentally strong and able to walk, I developed further issues such as being overweight; I was still depending on my mom for feeding, changing and all activities of daily living. I had to come to a point where I went through depression thinking about my future and what it would hold.
My mother decided to try Ayurveda once more and after a lot of research we found a place called Rajah Islands. Upon arrival, the doctors and the staff were knowledgeable, kind and efficient. After reviewing my case, they started treatments on me to work on my weight and to increase my mobility. For a case such as mine, one session would never be enough. A natural treatment takes it's time and it takes patience and faith. After a few seasons (each 28 days) I started losing weight and getting mobility in my arms. The doctors took the extra effort to do exercises to help make me more independent. Gradually through the Ayurveda treatments, acupuncture and exercises, I started to learn to feed myself and take a more part in doing things for myself without assistance. I felt motivated and became hopeful about my future. A few years later at the age of 23, I got married. Two years into my marriage, I struggled to conceive a child. Once again, I visited Rajah Islands for Ayurveda treatments to help conceive a child. A month later, I successfully conceived. Nine months later, I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Two years after that, I gave birth to another healthy baby boy. I am not only blessed with a beautiful family, but with the help of Ayurveda I am independent enough to care for my children, cook for them and am successfully fulfilling my duties as a mother and a wife. Although I have made a lot of progress throughout the years, I continue to maintain my treatments to keep rejuvenated.
Ayurveda is a natural remedy for any health problem. Natural remedies take time, patience and most importantly faith. Thanks to Rajah Ayurveda Hospitals and all the hardworking and dedicated staff, I am able to live a normal life. "
