Kaya Chikitsa

kayakalpa1The word ‘Kaya’ (Body) not only refers to the gross body of a person but to the subtle body as well. This natural alternative medicine recognizes that the body of a person is the product of the constant psychosomatic interactions. The imbalances in the tridoshas of vatapittakapha occur sometimes by the mind and sometimes by the body’s dhatu (tissues) and mala (toxin deposits). Hence, the Kayachikitsa branch of this system of herbal and holistic medicine, delves deep into ascertaining the root cause of the illness. Then only a suitable treatment is recommended to bring back mind and body into balance. Though the prescription might give an impression that the treatment is meant for the physical body, these in fact have a strong impact on mind and soul of a person.

The Charaka Samhita is the most important scripture on Kayachikitsa. It discussed the basic principles of treatment (mentioned above), various types of therapies and purification or detoxification methods i.e. Panchkarma. But, its thrust area has been diagnosis of a disease. Detail account of various methods of diagnosis, study of various stages of symptoms and the comprehensive management of debilitating diseases like diabetes mellitus, tuberculosis, asthma and arthritic conditions.

The section of Nidana Sthana of Charaka Samhita deals with etiology, pathogenesis and diagnosis of an illness. Six stages of the development of disease (Shadkriyakala) are enumerated as aggravation, accumulation, overflow, relocation, build up in a new site and manifestation into a recognizable disease (it is interesting to note that modern medical science can only detect a disease during the fifth or sixth stages of the illness). In Kayachikitsa there is always an opportunity to stop the disease at each stage preventing the full manifestation of disease.


One of the significant methods of treatment under Kayachikitsa is Panchkarma (Penta Bio Purificatory Procedures in Ayurveda). This is a method of reversing the disease path from its manifestation stage back into to its site of original development through special forms of emesis (Vamana), purgation (Virechana), enema (Basti), nasal instillation of medicine (Nasya) and blood letting (Raktamoksha) etc. Another unique aspect of Kayachikitsa is rejuvenation called Kayakalpa. The term Kayakalpa means renewal of body. According to Ayurveda the human body is made of seven types of dhatu or tissues-structures-plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, marrow and reproductive fluids. To prolong the youthfulness of the body Kayachikitsa applies several physical and mental disciplinary methods with special medicinal preparations, to rebuild the body’s cells and tissues after the initial process of detoxification, through Panchkarma.

All therapies in Ayurveda aim to provide good all round health, so that people can engage in achieving the real goal of life-self-realization. The Rasayana therapy increases the life force (ojas) and immunity of a person and thus there is a regeneration of cells and tissues in the body. Rasayana is a therapeutic process to defer old age.

The sages of ancient times led long, disease-free, and vigorous lives with the help of Rasayanas. Lord Indra is supposed to have given the knowledge of these panaceas to the sages.

Literally, Rasayana means the augmentation of rasaRasayanas prepared from the herbs and medicinal plants of amalaki, haritiki, triphala, bhringaraja, ashwagandha, punarnava, chitraka and many other herbal medicines have been used from time immemorial and have been instrumental in giving long, disease-free and vigorous lives to their users. Some special Rsayanoushadhi combinations are also administered like the Chyavanaprasha, Brahmi Rasayana, Palasha Amalaki Rasayana etc.>, the vital fluid produced by the digestion of food. It is the rasa flowing in the body which sustains life. Rasayana in Ayurveda is the method of treatment through which the rasa is maintained in the body.

Another connotation of rasa in Ayurveda is that it is a herbal medicine, which maintains the life and health of the individual, and increases his bodily and mental vigor. Herbal medicines are categorized according to whether they promote general health and longevity, sexual vigor, immunity. The three medicine categories are known in Ayurveda as RasayanaVajikarana, and Aushadhis, respectively. These categories are complementary to each other.

Jewels or ratnas include precious and semiprecious stones, which are used as drugs because of their therapeutic properties. Major jewels or maharatnas include: diamond-hiraka; ruby-manikya; pearl-mukta; topaz-pushparaga; sapphire-neelam; emerald-tarksha; cat’s eye-vaidurya; zircon-gomedak; and caulk-vidrumaUparatnas or minor jewels like sun-stone-suryakant , moonstone-chandrakanta, and crystal-sphatik were in use.

The calx of diamond is a powerful cardiac tonic and one of the best elixirs. It was applied in curing diabetes, urinary troubles and anemia. Because of its powerful aphrodisiac qualities the calx of diamond was used to treat impotence. The calx of rubies was used to increase intelligence, virility, and longevity. It also cures disorders produced by the vitiation of the three doshas.

Much more than physical health, ayurveda begins with healing genetic physical weakness. It goes a great length to ascertain these inherited hindrances in one’s being. Then it recommends practice of suitable lifestyle regimens, which guard those faults, and use herbs and essential oils to heal and mend those weaknesses. Another aim of ayurvedic is to ensure balance of the three doshas. Following these rules the Rasayana branch of treatment resorts to herb preparations and oils, bodywork, meditative practices, mantra exercises and breathing/pranayama to attain total mind-body healing. Rasayana oils have properties to bring balance in specific dosha types.

Classification and Administration of Rasayana

The term Rasayana is made up of two words – ‘Rasa’ meaning “Rasa Dhatu (tissue)” and ‘Ayana’ meaning “Path or transportation”. It refers to the transportation of nutrients to the Rasa dhatu and from there to other tissues of the body. It ensures proper nourishment to the tissues by which one gets excellent quality of body tissues. Rasayana (Ayurvedic Rejuvenation and Relaxation Therapies) is an Ayurvedic rejuvenative treatment approach for positive health, improved mental competence and stronger immunity.

Rasayana are classified into-

  1. Kamya Rasayana – Kamya Rasayana is used to fulfil a wish or desire or to serve a special purpose (Kama-desire). It is also used to promote general physical & mental health.  It is of three types-
    • Prana Kamya Rasayana – It is used for achieving or maintaining the best quality of Prana (life energy) in the body.
    • Medha Kamya Rasayana – It is used for enhancing the memory and intellect.
    • Shri Kamya Rasayana – Promoter of complexion.
  2. Naimittika Rasayana (Curative) is given to combat or balance a specific cause, which is causing a disease in the body. Some examples of this Rasayana are Amalaki (Indian Gooseberry) Rasayana, Mandookaparni (Centella Asiatica) Rasayana, Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) Rasayana, Triphala Rasayana etc.

As per the curative aspects of Rasayana, it is divided into two types– Kuti Praveshika Rasayana and Vatatapika Rasayana.

Kutee Praveshika Rasayana

(Self Isolation Therapy in a special house with intake of Ayurvedic herbs)

The Rasayana therapy that can be administered by keeping the individual inside a specially prepared Kutee (cottage) is known as Kutee Praveshika Rasayana. Before doing Kutee Praveshika Rasayana therapy the person must undergo internal and external purification therapies by Panchkarma. Then the person is ready to take special Ayurvedic medicines inside a specially prepared Kutee or cottage/ house with minimal light. He will be alone in this house for the entire treatment time apart from visit by doctors and therapists. The duration of treatment and the Ayurvedic herbs to be taken varies from patient to patient and can be finalized only after the consultation with doctor and also depending on the willpower of the patient. Very few Ayurvedic specialists practice this age old therapy.


Vatatapika Rasayana

This can be administered even if the individual is exposed to the wind and the sun means he is not staying inside the cottage as mentioned above. It is also called as open air therapy or outdoor therapy. Here there are no restrictions to the patient but the effect will not be as much as that of Kutee Praveshika Rasayana.
