What is ayurveda for Somatheeram experts?

IN PREVIOUS INTERVIEW WITH BABY MATHEW, WE SPOKE ABOUT THE STORY BEHIND THE CREATION OF THE WORLD’S FIRST AYURVEDA TOURIST RESORT SOMATHEERM, WHICH BECAME SYNONYM FOR AYUVEDA TOURISM IN THE WORLD. BUT WHAT DOES AYURVEDA MEAN PERSONALLY FOR HIM? 

BABY MATHEW

Founder & Director

SOMATHEERAM

I was born in a small village named Nadukani near Kothamangalam, in Central Kerala. The forests (not far from the Western Ghats hills), paddy fields and plantations surrounded the village, where you could find lots of plants and herbs. In that part of Kerala, ayurveda is still a lifestyle for a local people. They live a life according to ayurveda principals, cure themselves with local natural medicines and rarely visit a hospital. 

That’s the way I've been brought up. As I have mentioned, ayurveda was the part of our family heritage. My grand grandfather and grandfather were vaidiyas (ayurveda practitioners) and although my father was a planter, he adhered to customs and traditions of our ancestors – we woke up before sunrise, washed our self in the well, our diet was based on local vegetables and fruits and etc. Simply expressed, ayurveda means a traditional Kerala lifestyle for me.

All the medicines, treatments, internal and external therapies are based on the spiritual aspects of a person. If we treat a patient only for the body, it won't work - the mind and the soul should be involved.

Ayurveda is a divine science of life, our hands should be pure to treat a patient. Sometimes we are not able to cure every one but it is important not to make any mistakes from our hands. We pray to God. Ayurveda is a divine science of life, our hands should be pure to treat a patient.
