Karkidam – As month for ayurveda rejuvenation therapies
Karkidam– in malayalam month (July-August) is the time for preparing one’s spiritual, mental and physical health. Due to the climate changes in Karkidakam it is the time for preventive and rejuvenation therapies for human beings.

As per the Malayalam calendar, karkidakom is the last month of malayala masa & it falls in the month of July or August. (July 17th 2017-Monday) With the starting of karkidakom, monsoon rainfall enters the final phase in Kerala. During Varsha Rtu (karkidakom), the strength & immunity will be very weak.Our general health, digestive power will be reduced remarkably due to drastic climatic changes. This could make the person even more disease prone. As per Ayurvedic principle; the root cause of each disease is ” agnimandya” (decreased digestive power). It will lead to production of “Amain”, in our body which further alter the equilibrium of Tridoshas (vata, pitta, kapha) eventually ending up in health problems.
