What is Rasayana Therapy?
Rasayana is one of the eight original branches of Ayurveda. It is the path of rejuvenation and a science of revitalisation. It is a therapy stemming from the ancient medical system of Ayurveda.
Rasayana boosts immunity, promotes youthfulness and reverses ageing. It is vital in replenishing the system on a cellular level after completing a Panchakarma Detox, or P.K. “Rasa” is a Sanskrit term used to encapsulate the purpose of Rasayana Therapy, which is to preserve, transform and replenish energy.

How does Rasayana Therapy work?
A Rasayana Diet will enhance the optimum functioning of the body and brain through the use of nourishing foods that will produce Ojas. [According to Wikipedia, Ojas is one of the three vital essences that together promote and sustain our physical vitality, mental clarity, and overall health. The three vital essences—Prana, Tejas, and Ojas—are the positive forms of vata, pitta, and kapha doshas, respectively.].
The medicinal benefits of these nourishing foods include natural immunity-enhancing components/qualities. A consultation with one of our doctors will determine your Dosha/body type and the best foods specifically for your needs while guiding you on the path of rejuvenation.
Rasayana Herbs have the capacity to nourish the blood, lymph, flesh, adipose tissue, providing the body with essential subtle energies, an abundance of antioxidants and herbs that have adaptogenic characteristics that will protect you from free radicals. (Rasayana Therapies are especially important after Panchakarma Detox). Such herbs are also prescribed in order to treat specific ailments. Rasayana herbs, like all natural substances, when used properly, are safe for daily use and are effective over time. Rasayana herbs are given to small children as tonics and are also taken by the middle-aged and elderly to protect against and strengthen the immune system acting as a barrier to disease.
