Karkidaka Chikitsa literally means Monsoon treatment. Monsoon has its own effect on body and environment which leads to fever, cough, cold, digestive problems and other problems. Hence Kerala has an age-old tradition of giving precautionary natural remedies to the impending snags and wellbeing of the body and mind. Monsoon treatment removes toxins, strengthens immunity power to defend against diseases, also replenishes and rejuvenates.
Karkidaka Kanji is a recipe that is often prepared in the houses of Kerala with ingredients easily available in most of the local Ayurvedic shops. Nasya is a therapeutic process that effects head sinuses' nose and throat. The upper part of the body from chest to face is thoroughly massaged with herbal potions making the person involved to sweat profusely. Then a stipulated dose of Ayurveda medicine is poured into the nostril which goes inside while inhaling. This therapy largely prevents pains and allergies thereby creating a calming response in these areas with a lasting effect for long. Some of the other such resorts of all round healing are virechanam, vasthi, pizhichil, dhara, abhyangam, snehapana and many more.
