My stay in Vaidyagrama has been a unique experience; from the health point of view. Vaidyagrama healing village is located in a typical village environment. It provides a natural healing touch with its healthy herbs and other plants vegetation generating coolness in the atmosphere.

The computer entails a thoughtful layout of building blocks incorporating good engineering, architectural and ‘Vastu’ aspects required for natural care. These valuable features strike your mind prominently once you are settled in the room.

The patient living environment has been further made pleasant by the homely touch of the dedicated, competent and sincere team of doctors and all the members of support staff. They really care and pray for the speedy recovery of patients.

The ‘satsangs’ organized by Dr. Ram Kumar and Dr. Ramadas and other doctors, are extremely valuable and educative, provides an opportunity to the patients to learn in the strength of Ayurveda science and apply it for betterment of healthy life. This also helps the patients in building their confidence.

This is my first exposure to the Ayurveda treatment and found encouragingly successful and it changed my mindset.

Lastly, I wish to record that Dr. Ramkumar and Dr. Ramadas, who are erudite doctors of repute, possess great professional and traditional influence coupled with their sober, intimate and humane approach to the patient are the contributory factors in recovery of illness and building confidence of patients.

I sincerely wish Vaidyagrama a great success in their noble mission in the time to come.

God bless.

I thank God for having given me this precious opportunity at Vaidyagrama. It was a marvelous experience.

My heartfelt thank to the doctors for all their care and patience. They are wonderful people. I am very sorry to compensate my thyroid treatment, but I am infinitely thankful to doctor who have rescued me with her tremendous heart at whatever time, and to the doctorate staff as well. 

India as well as its people is a very unique life experience for me. I will never forget about it.

I am leaving now but I shall return. 

Here I was shown the way of life about how one should live his/her life. This approach at life is been largely missing in Western medicine. I leave my heart with you and I am taking all this love which all of you transmit. 

Many thanks to all the therapists, managers and all other staff who make this place as marvelous as it is on a daily basis.

For me it has been very difficult not being able to express myself due to the language barrier of English. But for my next trip this will not happen since my next adventure is to learn English. 

I have started 3 years ago the route of Ayurveda and every day I thank god and ‘Dhanwantari’ for it. It has induced me my fascination for Ayurveda medicine. 

Thanks to all for your love, comprehension. This is not a good bye. We will see each other in a couple of months.

A big hug from the bottom of my heart

I want to thank for the wonderful experience I have had at Vaidyagrama. The professional and warm attention of everyone, the beautiful and calm place…

I have had a great experience that beside this has increased my interest for ‘Ayurveda medicines’.

What a great Vedic legacy!! You must feel very proud of that.

Thank you very much, my best wishes for all of you and see you in 2017!

Happy!

Thank you for your enduring care and dedication.

I am returning to Chile with my heart full of love and very happy and thankful to the universe for this opportunity.

Thank you very much again to the doctors for their patience and to you for me not speaking English. I promise for when I shall return that my English will not be an obstacle anymore. 

A very big hug!

Every day I saw so many people working for making Vaidyagrama a unique place for the personalized health care and for the welfare of patients.

It is very difficult to express in words all the experience and attention received. Vaidyagrama is full of details and love for the patients.

Hug to the doctors for their time and patience. Love and hugs to my beloved therapist.

A fraternal hug, we will see each other, again.

Vaidyagrama, a home away from home...

From the moment I stepped in I sensed a shift in my emotions. As I went through the day and met the doctors, therapists, fellow residents I felt a genuinely peaceful atmosphere, a clam we all wish for and seek in our daily lives.

My dream of making/building a serene place while going back to basics for myself was truly manifested when I came here.

This place provides a space for self-exploration amidst nature, love and care of the community. Being in tune with nature, the mind and body is nourished where it needs the most.

With all humbleness, my mother and I would like to thank god for showing this place, Dr. Ramadas, Dr. Arsha, Dr. Krishnadas, our therapist Bindu, Mythili, Shiny (both), the staff members who all are directly and indirectly involved for making our stay comfortable. Nice conversations with Geetha ji and Preeti. All your effort and hard work is being felt.

Lastly grateful to Dr. Ramkumar for sharing his wisdom through ‘satsangs’ and little conversations we had.

My special thank to Dr. Ramadas for sharing life philosophies in the daily evening sessions.

This is a place to come back when life in outside world gets overwhelming.  Also a regular maintenance probably might be better.

Humbled and Grateful!

Most gracious to my team of doctors beginning from Dr. Ramanandan, Dr. Harikumar, Dr. Jyothi and Dr. Mubash! Twenty days have gone since I first arrived at Vaidyagrama. For more than a decade now I have been having ongoing issues (health) that were just not getting resolved with western allopathy medicine. So looking to find a way to reduce the symptoms of my ailments and to learn anther way of lifestyle better suited for my ailing issues, my search for a reliable alternative style treatment began which culminated (through internet search) at Vaidyagrama, an Ayurveda green healing village. First time coming to India, although I knew Ayurveda treatments were prevalent in Kerala. I chose to find one just outside its borders in Coimbatore as I could speak the language and that would facilitate my living conditions while getting the treatment.

The very first night I came into Vaidyagrama, I felt I had made the right choice. My treating doctor Dr. Ramanandan was waiting at the door when it was close to midnight to welcome me and take me to my room. Room conditions were comfortable in size, space and an attached bathroom with a small dinner space made it complete for me. This good feeling in me only enhanced as the days went by with the daily visits monitoring by the doctors and loving support of the therapists. Despite ‘Onam’ holidays/leave causing change of therapists, my care was never compromised as there was consistency in the service/treatment given where my safety and well being was always reassured especially since I have never had Ayurveda massages, etc. in the past. My special thank to this bunch of old and new therapists namely Devaki, Geethu, Reshma (both) and Praveena.

Although obesity was one of the issues being treated and weight loss being one of the aims, I still never went hungry- had always enough to eat some really freshly tasted cooked red rice Kanji, green gram dal and vegetables. It still resulted in approximately 5 kg weight loss during my stay here. I slowly started gaining confidence as my health issues improved in various aspects. One of the aims I had was to find out what to do or don’t do in future after leaving Vaidyagrama that will empower me with optimal health. That opportunity came and was given by the ‘satsangs’ delivered mainly by Dr. Ramkumar and Dr. Ramadas. The open forums of question/answers during Dr. Ramkumar’s one and half hour hours ‘satsangs’ daily gave me a chance to clear my doubts while giving me clarity of how to live a healthy life post Vaidyagrama.

Blessed was I to find such a lovely healing place and my closure here would have been more complete if the stores could have made available strong packing material in terms of boxes, easily available strings to tie a weigh scale. A lot of waiting time and red tape involved in this. Being an Australian resident knowing the Australian custom requirements, each ‘Kashayam’ package in future has to be sealed fully with a candle and then the labels clearly and professionally attended. Failing which a lot of questions and time will be wasted in explanations whether we have put in our material or done it at home. End result being the packages being confiscated. The bottles were bubble wrapped and the tapes around the bottle covers were sometimes not sealed properly and that would be a cause of some spillage in the box/bag especially for foreigners who go through a few transits before reaching the destination. The luggage during each transit is again transferred or thrown into the conveyor belt and if bottles packages not sealed well, it will end up spilling.

Lastly, my very special thank to the volunteers Geetha and Preeti who gave a lot of kind support and assurances. They are an indispensable part of Vaidyagrama. Their approachable mannerisms, wealth of knowledge, service has only added to the goof name of Vaidyagrama.

I go now with a lot of confidence and hopefully will return with other family members in the years to come. I wish Vaidyagrama the very best in all their efforts to the wellbeing of all patients who come from here locally and abroad.

Amen.

Fond Regards,

This is my second time at Vaidyagrama. So I would like to thank everyone again for all the care and attention. I know that after I leave from here I will begin to feel the positive effect of the treatment. The first time when I came here I felt a lot of improvement in the months after the treatment… and this time I can already feel my health is balancing at again.

This place is a blessing, thank you very much!

The Ayurveda treatment given in Vaidyagrama, Punarnava are very beneficial. Here, food is very light and simple. I had a lot of body pain and left knee was very painful when I came but in last two weeks most of my pains have gone. I am taking medicines with me to continue to get further relief.

My doctor Harikrishnan and all other doctors are very nice. They are patient and have given attention to my health problems. The staffs and therapists are good. All other patients were also very friendly.

Here it is a holistic treatment. We have prayers in the morning followed by Pranayama for about 10 to 15 minutes, and prayers in the evening. In the Mandapam Hall, we have Q & A session with Dr. Ramkumar in the afternoon and in the evening by Dr. Ramadas. We ask question on many issues and they are answered.

I was there for 2 weeks and I had a good experience.

I thank everyone for healing me to regain my health.

Vaidyagrama is an amazing place. The vision of health and well being founded on deeper life principles seems to accelerate the process of finding ones own potential to be healthy and the values here certainly promote simplicity, less is more and peace.

The fellow guests are wonderful and the mix of time alone and together seems to a great recipe for healing supported and supporting others.

The staff members are very attentive and also seem to embody a sense of calm, simplicity and fun as well as efficiency.

The doctors and therapists are all fabulous and each ‘Satsang’ or consultation is handled with great love and attention.

Thank you all for this gem!

It has been a beautiful enriching experience! All thank to the most caring, nurturing and positive atmosphere. The therapists, Shiny, Bindu, Jayshree and Mythili are gems! Their smiles and warmth will stay with me forever. Their passion and selflessness is a shining example to follow.

Loved all the discourses. Taking home so much knowledge but most importantly mindfulness. Dr. Ramadas- wow! He is a great doctor with empathetic ears. His bhajans in the morning transcend me to another place. Thank you.

Ramkumar and Ramadas discourses were amazing. Could listen to them all day. Thanks to all the support staff who work tirelessly. Geetha ji and Aparna ji- thank you!

Vaidyagrama is truly a special place- made so by special people.

What a blessing to have discovered this place! We were looking for healing, and what we found is so much more: a healing community that demonstrates that other ways of living is possible.

It is inspiring to witness how the care, which is practiced here, recovers its full and fundamental meaning, by extending for beyond the idea of a clinic.

Our hearts are full of gratitude towards our passionate doctors, always generous and listening. They accompanied us through out the process with their sensitivity and compassion, their spiritual guidance and their humor.

Thanks to all our therapists, for their sensitivity, their care and skillfulness.

We specially thank Sajith, Vinod and Sachin; and Devaki for her maternal care, Reshma and all the other therapists in our block, and our wonderful angel Pravina, which took care of us with love and patience!

Thanks to all the staff members, the housekeepers, the gardeners, the receptionists, the people in the office. Thanks Aruna for letting us witnessing your cooking!

Thanks Aparna, Geetha and all the volunteers for their devotion and generosity.

Thanks to Dr. Ramkumar for his spiritual guidance and inspiration.

And finally, thank you Dr. Ramanandan for accompanying us on this journey with your compassion, humor, lightness and patience.

With all our love,

Once again had a wonderful stay. All the care under Dr. Ramadas, Dr. Aruna and my therapists (Shiny K. and Shiny Mol), has benefited me in health and to relax my mind. All the stress vanishes with the positive energy at Vaidyagrama.

The ‘satsang’ by Dr. RamKumar and his continuous guidance always amazes me. His simple explanations to the most deep and complicated questions are so easy to understand.

Dr. Ramadas with his simple screen displays makes things easier to understand. I thank you, Dr. Ramadas for all your concern and advice.

Dr. Ramanandan, his smile is so good. His ‘satsangs’ are so easy to understand and grasp fully.

One point to mention is that, thank you, bringing required changes in the food. It is for the better.

Your cleaning staff members who are so careful of everything and the laundary service has improved a lot.

Thank you to Hakeem and his co-staff (Balu, Manoj and gardeners) for taking such good care of us and services to all our comforts.

Thank you Aparna and Kavita for your continouous concern

Looking forward to being here next year again.

I was drawn back to Vaidyagrama in less than a year. I needed to be looked after, the warmth, the care, the nurturing and I have received it all from everyone here. Dr. Ramadas presence alone makes me feel better.

Dr. Ramkumar’s wisdom clears my mind. Dr. Aruna is quietly reassuring. My therapist Bindu has pampered and rejuvenated me, a little Mythili has supported her in looking after me.

Thank you to the entire team here for making me feel special, for their constant attention and genuine concern.

Thank you to Dr. Ramanandan and Dr. Hari Kumar for their continued wisdom, to my therapist Devaki and to sweet little Pravina-who grows everyday.

 

To Dr. Ramadas for filling up the space with his presence and most of all to Dr Ram Kumar.
