Vaidyagrama Ayurveda healing village has 9 patient blocks and each block has 4 patient units and 1 treatment block.

Patient block
Each patient block has four patient units; and each unit has a foyer, bathroom, bedroom and balcony.

Treatment block
A verandah from the patient block leads to the treatment units. Two treatment units are part of each patient block. Each treatment room has separate change rooms, treatment rooms and bathrooms. There is a common medicine pantry.

Your treatment program
It starts with a consultation wherein your physicians and you get to know each other better. Accordingly an Ayurveda healing program suited to your constitution, health problems and available time is created that is upgraded on a daily basis following regular interaction. The program includes herbal teas and powders, external body treatments, panchakarma (where necessary), simple easy-to-digest vegetarian diet and lots of rest (physical and mental). Daily evaluation is done through consultation and counselling.

The healing continues when you leave vaidyagrama; hence the more rest you give your body and mind, and the more you continue the medicines and regimen, the better will be the healing. You should plan to carry at least 3 months of herbs/oils (around 10kg) with you for use after treatment; you should stay in touch with your physicians and give them regular feedback to maximise the benefit from the healing process.
