Month of Karkidaka And Health

The ancient texts of Ayurveda state that the monsoon season’s humidity increase can cause imbalances in the balance of the tridoshas and Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The people of Kerala have been using karkidaka Chikitsa to overcome health problems during the month Karkidaka. This is a restorative and therapeutic measure for general well-being.
