Namaskar!

I have learnt here the importance and the need to take care of myself...Both body and soul, as it is the connection necessary to be able to be healed and this teaching came through all the care. I have been given details of the life here and how to live, as I can reapply on my body, at this "healing village" where all the work coming with compassion for Mother Nature and its children. It is given the healers themselves in the prayers and Satsangs, to make sense of the meaning of the pulse / the heart of the loving Nature.

In its practical sense, it means giving an invitation to prepare, look, understand Ayurveda gestures to accomplish this caring for one self and the Self.

I am very grateful that I was introduced to the level of quality of Vision.

Bravo! ...and thank you to the team of "healing village".

I came to Vaidyagrama with some trepidation. While my friends Rajasree had recommended it lightly. I wasn’t sure what to expect.

My experience has been more than I had anticipated... the green, quiet, clean and friendly atmosphere made me relax almost immediately. Dr.Ramanandan, Dr.Kesari and Dr.Athulya have been super patient and understanding. Your intuitiveness amazes me, Dr. Ramanandan.

My therapists Vaishnavi and Lavanya were good and I was amazed at the punctuality with which the various patients would arrive. I go away feeling rested and calm. I also know that 10 days is not enough to feel the full benefits of the cleansing. I know I will be back.

Dear Vaidyagrama

Thanks for everything that I got here, the care, love and attention. It was another great experience for me, second time in 3 years.

Apart from the therapy and medicines, the secure atmosphere calms down your mind. I must mention the satsang. The insights and knowledge we get here will go a long way in our lives.

I am especially thankful to Dr. Harikrishnan and therapists.

Thanks,

How blessed am I? First I came as a student for one month course, then unexpectedly a change of plan occurred and I stayed on as a patient. During the almost two month stay, I have fallen in love with this place, the people, the weather, the food, the plants, the clouds in the sky, the raindrops and the snails.

This was my first time visiting India, yet I felt like coming home. In two days am leaving with my take-home medicines, and I know I will miss everyone, I will miss the warm or shy, smiles, and the genuine 'how are you?'; the mosquito, the smoke-cart man, the garden cleaning women, the office people, the pharmacy people, the therapists, the doctors, the children, everyone.

Where the heart is- that is home, and my heart embraces Vaidyagrama, here I feel home.

Am so grateful, so humbled, so happy, to have come home. Thank you everyone, now I feel like part of a huge family! All and one, one and all, no separation only connection.

With love,

Dear Vaidyagrama team

What a wonderful experience this has been, though I admit that I did come with some scepticism. This is truly utopia for us who were tired in body and mind.  You have truly worked wonders with me....I go back feeling totally rejuvenated and clear headed.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr.HariKrishnan, Dr.Aruna, Dr.Krishnadas and Dr.SivaJyothi you have shown tremendous patience, care and affection. I shall miss you all! Also a special thanks to my therapist Vidya, Shiny and Athira who were just lovely and ready to assist anytime.

Prayer time was made truly special by Dr.Ramadas. My constant questions to Dr Ramkumar were always attended with the large dose of humour.

Thank you Preeti for your delicious recipes, which I shall definitely make, and thus remember you all in vaidyagrama family.

This was my first visit, but will definitely not be my last.

With much love and appreciation,

Namaskar!

I am glad that I took Dr Kalpana Sampath's suggestion and came here to Vaidyagrama.

Ayurveda treatments are not new to us. But this place is a totally different experience. I was very apprehensive to try some of the treatments for my daughter due to her complex medical condition.

Dr.Ramanandan made us more comfortable and answered all my questions patiently, thoroughly with diligence. He is an amazing doctor, kind and a wonderful human being blessed with a lot of goodness. Thank you Dr. Ramanandan for all your expertise.

Dr.Anupama's services should also be acknowledged. She is very thorough and was a big support throughout this 21 days stay. Her patience in answering all my questions, irrespective of treatments/ medication and caring attitude is very much appreciated. Thank you Dr.Anupama, Samiksha/ Sami will always smile at your pictures.

The therapists Reshma, Shyni, Sindhu, Mrudula, and Mythili all dressed with a healing touch. Sakthi is an angel and big thanks to her for patience and for keeping their place super clean and tidy.

Mythili made sure we got all our kashayam and other medicines from dawn to dusk on time. Special thank you for Mythili, her system is so organized.

The satsangs with Dr.Ramadas and Dr. Ramanandan were eye openers, and all the presentations have made me to make a better choice and look at things in a different perspective and make some healthy choice.

Dr. Ramadas' chanting were so soulful and we will miss that so much. Dr. Ramanandan is not only a super doctor, but a singer too. I will miss hearing those songs/ singings.

Lastly, the whole place is so beautiful, lush green and waking up to the sounds of birds chirping and the beautiful trees and plants are real heaven.

Everybody helped whenever needed. The girls at the reception Aruna, Jency and Sonia are awesome and friendly....

I would definitely visit next year!

I would like to thank Dr. Ramanandan, Dr. Athulya, and therapists Mythili, Vaishnavi are very conservative and they cared me like baby.

I am blessed to be here and the treatments helped me a lot. My lifestyle changed here, once again thank you all.

I miss you all!

When I ventured to come alone to Coimbatore, I had lot of apprehensions about the place, stay, the treatment and the food.

Enter Vaidyagrama; smiling reception staff with a welcome drink, cuckoo and music, chirping of birds, green everywhere, amazing atmosphere, no vehicle sounds, no vendors... O My God, this is heaven...

I have heard about VIP treatment, actually I got it here!

Dr.Ramanandan, Dr. Anupama, Dr. Athulya, Dr. Kesari for 21 days I was in safe hands of divine healing. Dr.Anupama was an angel. Thanks to Aparna for answering all my silly questions. Therapists- Mythili, Reshma, Sindhu- A big thank you to all. Shakti was solely responsible for the tidying and clean up keep of my room.

What to say about Dr. Ramanandan...He could have been a political leader- Always smiling, making fun, taking pulse, testing my eyes and tongue, writing report, and going about his work silently and diligently.

Dr Ramadas, I can never forget his metallic voice. Nobody missed the prayers when he chanted.

I came here for detox and cleansing, also to regulate the sugar level.

Definitely, now I am energetic and feel lighter. Of course I will have to continue the food habit I was taught here. This is really a good experience. I wish to come here again, but for the kanji in breakfast. I will miss Vaidyagrama!

Vaidyagrama has been an oasis of peace, attention and with an amazing understanding of a patient's medical woes.

Dr.Ramadas and all the other doctors have shown great patience and comprehension of what ails a person; they have guidance and medicines to help in one’s recovery. The lectures have given us an insight in to the world of Ayurveda. This has been very special experience of how we should be living our lives and looking after our bodies and minds.

Am truly looking forward to my next trip here, thanks a lot for helping me out in this wonderful journey!

This is our second visit to Vaidyagrama. We had come for the first time in 2014 and from then on, we see tremendous growth in the centre. It is very heartening to see the passion, dedication and commitment in the staff, therapists and doctors.

We are surprised to see the care with which the management takes care of its employees, from a crèche to so many benefits for them which not many multinational companies provide for their employees.

We came in this time with specific treatment for our leg problem due to diabetes. After 20 days of treatment, we are setting back with much improvement and a better and rejuvenated mind and spirit.

Thanks to our classmate Dr J M Sampath who referred this place; to Dr. Ramkumar and Dr. Harikrishnan and Dr. Krishnadas.

Vaidyagrama, a life changing experience!

I came with lot of apprehensions and questions. I go back with positivity and deep clarity and understanding of my body and its rhythm.

A big thanks to Dr Ramanandan for being so patient with me and for answering my questions. You are an amazing doctor and human being. Many thanks to Dr Kesari, Dr Athulya for always being there.

My therapists Vaishnavi, Lavanya, Mrudula and Lakshmi, your healing touch will be missed.

Thank you to all the people who cleaned my room and everyone involved in giving nourishing food. Lastly all the Vaidyagrama people who I did not meet, but are a big part of to my stay.

I will miss Dr Ramkumar's Sat sang, Dr.Ramadas' prayer and chanting.

I go back healed and a transformed person. And would like to come back again. Vaidyagrama, you will be missed!

Beautiful place to heal, in sync with Nature and its rhythms. Amazing doctors especially Dr.Ramanandan, Dr Kesari and Dr Athulya with their constant personal attention, support and encouragement.

From kashayam to the last bedtime medication - all was very well organised and with attention given to detail.

Very skilled and warm therapist especially Shyni. Going back healed, rejuvenated mentally and physically.

The prayers with Dr. Ramadas, Satsangs with Dr Ramkumar and chats with Aparna were the added bonus.

Thank you!

This is Dr Lajja Shastri. I am quite glad that I opted to visit Vaidyagrama for treatment of my skin allergies. My doctors- Dr Ramananadan, Dr Kesari and Dr Athulya were everything that one would want their doctors to be – attentive, thorough and diligent in their practice. What makes their behaviour special, is their compassion for patients and I am very grateful for that.

My stay of 18days was tougher than I expected since I had no experience of Ayurveda treatment. The treatment was made bearable due to the constant support of the doctors.

The only thing that I perceive as a weak link is the food. I understand that it is a hospital and I am a patient, but there is a lot that can be done to make the food more palatable for the patients.

It is certainly difficult to sustain on the completely tasteless kanji for 10 days. I would humbly request someone to make an effort to provide a more edible food, even if we have to be restricted with the ingredients during treatments.

I hope to see myself cured of my ailments at the end of next 3 months. But I certainly will remember vaidyagrama very fondly.... especially my therapist Shyni, my doctors, Aparna and the satangs with Dr Ramkumar and Dr Ramanandan... thanks to everyone!

Thank you to all the doctors, staff and everyone. I look forward to a new beginning. I will miss everyone.

It was a really good experience at this place. The doctors here are so nice, helping and responsive. They come to patient rooms every day and patiently listen to our problems. The therapists and helpers are so good.

On a different note you have maintained this place well, and food is so delicious.

The Satsang by doctors is very nice place to be in the day, and discussions about their experience is extremely helpful.

Thank you so much for making a big change in our lives. We look forward to seeing you all at Vaidyagrama again.

It has been a wonderful experience at Vaidyagrama. Under the treatment of Dr Harikrishnan and his able team, the tough days too went by smoothly.

Thanks to Dr. Aruna and Dr. Sivajyothi and their comforting words, I have had a good stay.

The team of therapists too were wonderful and caring. Vaidyagrama is truly living by the term, Back to Nature.

The satsangs were very informative and a good place to exchange our ideas and anxieties.

The housekeeping staff and front office too has friendly people always ready to help.

Thank you for the soul satisfying experience!

I came to Vaidyagrama for a very short period of time. The purpose was rest and relaxation, and a break from the busy, chaotic big city life.

I enjoyed the simplicity of life at Vaidyagrama, and it brought to fore the abuse we subject our bodies to, in our everyday lives in the outside world. It’s hard to make a drastic change, but I am hoping to make little changes to start with.

The peace and quiet at Vaidyagrama make it immensely amenable to reflection. I have had a relaxing time and am returning rejuvenated.

The doctors were attentive and the staff and therapists were helpful and efficient.

Thank you for a very efficient experience!

Vaidyagrama... The temple of body and soul.

As we keep sinking deeper and deeper in the Whirlpool of the Ultra-modern world of technology, our mind gets corrupted and does things  affecting health and emotions.

Vaidyagrama is like a healing balm that helps you to reconnect with the nature.

We learn the simple ways of healthy living through food for body and spiritual minds.

We are absolutely grateful to Dr Ramkumar, Dr Harikrishnan and all other doctors who are tirelessly involved in preserving the age-old Ayurveda way of living.

Our gratitude to the therapists and all the staff members for taking such good care.

Always smiling and ready to lend a helping hand. We will of course miss the delicious Kanji (ha ha ha) back home!  But on a serious note, it will always be our pleasure to come back again and again.

All factors favourable for the healing of a person are taken care of very well in Vaidyagrama- Comfortable and hygienic rooms, healthy food, caring Doctors, dedicated therapists, pleasant staff, natural and unpolluted environment and the touch of Divinity.

As a Swami, felt I was living in an Ashram. Perhaps visiting hours of Doctors can be fixed for patients.

May Vaidyagrama serve more and more people!
