Netra Tarpana – Eye Treatment

Clarity
Enhance and Fix Vision
Comfortable Eyes

Nowadays, excessive usage of computers/screens, air conditioning, radiation, air pollution and climate change, cool weather is creating dryness in atmosphere - leading to dryness in body - leading to Dry Eye Syndrome.

This is why Las Vegas is the #1 “Dry Eye Hot Spot” in USA (1)
“Approximately 20% of the Australian adult population suffer from dry eyes. Research suggests that up to 48% of office workers could experience dry eyes, due to their long exposure to air-conditioning and computer screens.”(2)

Solution
The age old method of Netra Tarpana, aka Netra Basti, is the perfect solution.

The Treatment
As a special medicated ghee is held over the eyes, one opens and closes and moves their eyes in all directions to adequately lubricate their whole eyes, as well as whole head, neck and throat region.

Other Benefits:

Improves Eye Sight
This treatment helps restore degraded vision, and prevents vision from degrading. (Prevention is a key aspect of Ayurveda). Helps correct short-sightedness and long-sightedness vision.

Macular Degeneration - Slows down the degeneration process and has the potential to reverse it. This treatment is an alternative to the conventional eye injections. Netra Tarpana is also indicated to work alongside the anti-VEGF injections and reduces the pain associated with it.

Relieves Irritated Eyes - Burning eyes, itchy eyes, feeling that something is in your eyes.

Increases Brain Function by providing oleation to the optic nerve (a cranial nerve) and regulates melatonin and serotonin.

“This is one of my personal favourite panchakarma treatments because of the relaxation and nourishment my brain feels via the vagus nerve during it. Also for the rest of the day after the treatment, with my sunglasses on and a restriction to focus my vision on anything, I have nothing else to do but relax, close my eyes and go inward.”
~ Dylan Smith, founder of Vital Veda

After the treatment sensitivity is increased so you must wear sunglasses and not read nor look at screens nor bright light for 4-5 hours.

A series of these treatments are recommended to heal the physiology on a deeper level and for sustainable results.

The medicated ghee used in our Netra Tarpana treatment contains complex and precious formulations of a vast range of organic, wild crafted and rare herbs, purified and prepared with love and mantras (primordial sounds) by the Raju Family of Vaidyas.

This ensures safety, enhances a potency and reduces the eyes stinging.

Banana Purification by The Raju Family

Powerful method for promoting perfect health

“Raju Banana Purification” is a powerful therapy that cleanses the entire physiology and restores gynaecological health.

It is ideally taken by women whilst on their menstrual cycle, but is also effective for women who will not be menstruating at the time of visits, to balance hormones, enhance fertility and to profoundly purify and detoxify the physiology.

What is Raju Banana Purification

Banana Purification is mostly done during a woman's menstrual cycle.
Ayurveda views the menstrual cycle as a deep detox and profound purification that a woman is blessed to have once a month.
This unique treatment that is exclusively performed by the Raju Family immensely enhances this purification process.


Banana Purification deeply cleanses the entire body, particularly the female reproductive system.

Even if the problems are deeply rooted, significant relief can be achieved from this 3-5 day program.
The program also helps to balance the hormonal system so emotions become more even and smooth.

Banana Purification Involves

  • Taking herbs specially prepared with bananas during each day of the menstrual flow or duration of the therapy.
  • Adhering to a specific and simple diet.
  • Taking plenty of rest so that the body can devote all it's energy to clearing and healing. The treatment draws out toxins from all over the body into the menstrual blood through which they are expelled. Still profound detoxification happens for those not bleeding during this program.

A single banana purification done properly during menstruation has benefits, depending on the person, equal to two or more 23-day intensive Panchakarmas.

Duration of Banana Purification Program:
• Menstruating women do the Banana Purification for the duration of their menstrual cycle.
• Women not on their cycle generally do 3 consecutive days.


Location for Raju Australian Visit 2017

The Banana Purification is only given by the Vaidya personally. You need to come in daily over 3 consecutive days. It will take approx. 30 mins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Banana Purification Only for Menstruating Women?

No.

• Women whose menstruation is unnaturally absent can also do the Banana Purification.
• It is also possible for post-menopausal women to receive Banana Purification. Knowing any previous date or time of the month when they had a period is ideal.
• The Vaidya (Ayurvedic physician) can then search the pulse around that time for the underlying cycle that still continues in a woman's physiology, even after menopause. Though less powerful than during the days of actual flow, the therapy is still highly beneficial for increased purification, hormone balance and strength.
• Women whose cycle does not align with the time that the Vaidya is there can still do the treatment. It is however encouraged to travel to the city that Vaidya Raju is in at the time of your cycle to obtain the full benefit. After all, women travel from all over the globe to India just for Banana Purification, so travelling inter-state if the opportunity is there is well worth the benefits.

If I am taking Banana Purification at night do I still need to eat milk rice that day?

Yes, only eat milk rice that day and no food or water 2 hours before your Banana Purification evening session.

Vaidya Raju on Banana Purification
"The main action of Banana [Purification] is on the uterus ~ the communication between the brain and the uterus. When the communication is obstructed, it clears it—whatever is in the way. And then it clears everything because it removes the blocks [along the way]. With gall stones it takes some time...for liver problems much less time, gas much less. Because it fixes everything that is in-between and clears the way. Whatever is blocking it clears...makes that sankalp [intention] to work."

~ Vaidya J.R. Raju

Why is Banana Purification So Powerful?

"The main thing is the vibration [the use of the Primordial Sounds], and the herbs. Just like the planet is considered as the human (small point), Brahmananda is the universe (vast). Like that the herb is always minute, and it will work in all directions [huge expansion]. Similarly, along with that, the vibration enters into the body and goes into the whole endocrine system, not only the reproductive system, and creates the balance.
You might have seen one patient’s case here: just with the Banana [Purification] she developed her uterus and even her cervix was not there and that is also developed now. The treatment is given at the best time of the month because of the power of the underlying cycle. Banana [Purification] is a good rejuvenation. It is like half or even one full Panchakarma in value even when you are in menopause. Even if you don’t have those organs due to hysterectomy, whatever the balance is needed will come from the treatments. The whole hormone system is endocrine, so no need to worry about the organ itself."
~ Vaidya Krishna Raju.

Essential Things to Know For Your Banana Purification

The more precise you follow these procedures, the more increased benefit you will get.

Donation:

The Raju forefathers, who handed down this unique and wonderful knowledge to their family, specified that the Banana program itself should be given free of charge so that there is no financial barrier for anyone to have its benefits.

One must pay for the bananas used - $5/day for Australia.

Additional donations are required whenever they travel to give the Banana Purification. A Raju family member is travelling from overseas solely to provide the Banana Purification. For a suggested donation contact Jes on jes@jeschev.com / 0405 488 807.

The cash should be in an envelope with the Banana Treatment Form filled out.

You should not enter the home/venue where you will receive the therapy, but rather wait outside until Vaidya Raju will bring the therapy to you.

You must observe 30 minutes of silence before and after and during taking the medicine.

Times for Banana Purification North Bondi, SYDNEY:

Saturday 23rd September - 10:30pm.
Sunday 24th September - 9am.
Monday 25th September - 7:30am.

Please arrive on time and sit in silence while you wait.

Diet:
• On the days of undergoing the Banana Purification, one should not take any medications, herbs, dietary supplements etc. - if you have an issue or query with this, contact dylan@vitalveda.com.au / 0451 534 884.
The banana herbs should be taken on a completely empty stomach. If you are taking the morning dose of Banana Purification, you should not consume any food, herbs, or medications etc. that morning. Only plain water is allowed.
• 1 hour before taking the banana herbs the person should completely fast (no food, water etc.).
• It is important to swallow the banana piece whole - Do not chew it or allow it to touch your teeth.
1 -2 hours after taking the medicine the patient should completely fast (no food, water etc.) After this, the first thing the patient should eat is milk rice.
• Do not talk for 30 minutes before you receive the banana herbs and 30 minutes afterwards. Results are more powerful with inward attention and silence during this time.
Every meal during the Banana Purification should be "milk rice". If you have trouble digesting cows milk, try a smaller quantity raw or unhomogensied cows milk boiled. If this is still uncomfortable, you may have plain white rice only.
Rarely people feel aversion to eating milk rice every meal. If this happens and you really cannot tolerate it, have milk rice or plain white rice for the first meal (after taking the Banana Purification), then for the meals after that you may add a little cinnamon in the milk rice to add some flavour and reduce the aversion. Note that this is not ideal and for full benefits of the Banana Purificaiton. Plain milk rice is best during menstrual cycle. You can also have fresh, simple food throughout if you are really struggling with diet (see diet below on next bullet point).
• If you have aversion or cannot cope with just milk rice or plain rice contact us to discuss the best meal plan.
• Continue sipping hot water frequently during the Banana Purification days to help remove the toxins more thoroughly.

Regimen

  • A time to go inward and rest - It is encouraged you keep socialising to a minimum. You will probably be quite tired during the Banana Purification, so it is best you avoid strenuous activity, work, studying, going out etc. Sleeping during the day is permitted. Think of this as a stretch of "time for yourself" where you can profoundly rest and purify.
  • Do not use tampons during Banana Purification as this impedes the free flow of toxins out of the body and may cause toxins to be reabsorbed as a result (best to always follow this rule during your period whenever you can).
  • During the days of menstrual flow, it is traditional for you not to touch or have anyone touch you during this time as many impurities are coming out of the body (especially strong during the Banana Purification).
"I have had debilitating periods all my life...horrible cramps, nausea, and pain. After receiving banana treatment from Dr. Pavani Raju, I would say my periods are 95-99% better. Not only that, but it has had a side effect of giving me greater confidence and sense of self. I feel very lucky to have been given this treatment."
BT Patient, USA
"I wasn't able to take the Raju Banana Treatment when I was still menstruating, but I've been fortunate to have had it several times since menopause, because I know my cycle times from years past and the Vaidyas can feel in my pulse when I am ready for the banana medicine. Though they say it's more powerful during menstruation, it still brings me increased energy and strength, along with deep purification. From the moment I swallow the herb, I can feel a special liveliness spreading in my body, and for those first few hours after taking it I feel very inward and quiet and sometimes fall deep asleep for hours, even in the middle of the day. It's a very special experience, and gives me a big boost afterwards."
Panchakarma Guest, USA
"The Banana Purification Treatment was an incredibly special experience. I am very very grateful that I finally experienced it. The month before I received the BT my cycle was a nightmare. I went to the hospital from being in such tremendous and unbearable pain. Morphine wasn't even enough because I suffered from a partially ruptured ovarian cyst. My doctor assumed it crossed with a blood vessel. This brings the worst pain ever. It has been likened to child birth, followed by massive abdominal swelling The 2-3 prior cycles were increasing in pain leading up to last month where I couldn't even stand or walk. I could just curl into myself on the floor, using all my energy to endure the pain. This past cycle, after taking the banana treatment, I barely felt any pain at all (just some the first day, but Advil was sufficient in relieving the pain). I am so grateful!!! I was actually scared and anxious about the next cycle, wondering if I'd end up in the hospital again. The BT itself was very humbling and beautiful. I felt incredibly happy and loving afterwards and during the treatment. I since have felt lighter in body and spirit, like every cell in my body was invigorated and born anew. I felt incredibly awake, though at the same time very exhausted. Being in Dr. Raju's presence was humbling, cleansing, soothing, and inspiring. I will tell every woman I know and love to come the next time Dr. Raju comes to town. I will go too. I can hardly wait. 🙂 Thank you with my whole heart and spirit."
Patient, USA
"Stability, clarity and internal strength are the prominent effects the Banana Treatment has had on me. I find it very settling and strengthening to mind, soul and physiology. Female hormones are one of the most determining factors of a woman’s state of being. The Banana Treatment balances these hormones on a very fundamental level, creating lasting harmony. In my case, a concrete example is the positive influence the Banana Treatment had on my period. I used to not be able to “survive” my very long and heavy cycles without using pain relievers which was a big stress. After taking just two Banana Treatments, I could already feel a big difference. My cycles became shorter and less painful. After two more treatments, my cycles now only last 5 days and I can get by without using pain medicine at all. The Banana Treatment has also helped me to settle anxiety and insomnia. I am very grateful for having found this treatment. Through balancing my hormones, it has not only helped me to balance my physical body, but also to balance myself."

"I was diagnosed with MRKH Syndrome in c.1996 following an ultrasound that revealed I had no uterus. This is a rare congenital condition whereby the female reproductive system stops developing after the creatIon of the ovaries.

This of course means you do not have periods, nor can you have children naturally.

In allopathic medicine there is no known reason or solution. On diagnosis, I was brought under the care of a specialist unit in a London hospital where they offer enormous emotional support to the diagnosed ladies and their families, but of course in their eyes there was nothing they could do.

In January 2010 my partner, Will, and I embarked on a two year traveling sabbatical. We decided to kick start it with a 23 day PK in Delhi. Will had been suffering from Gilbert's Syndrome and a poorly functioning liver, and the doctors back home had been at a loss on how to treat this debilitating condition. A short one week PK in the UK had had such beneficial results we decided to come for a long stint in Delhi. There we had the blessing and amazing good fortune to meet with Dr. JR Raju and we came out of our first consultation amazed. Raju-ji was not at all bemused by Will's condition and had diagnosed me just through the touch of the pulse. He even suggested that his family's Banana Medicine would be able to help me overcome my situation. My pulse had indicated that I had either just finished or was just about to start my cycle so for the rest of those three weeks he regularly took my pulse to track my cycle. It came, a few days before I was due to leave.

During this first treatment, I felt enough sensations to merit following Dr. Raju's advice and obtained an ultrasound. The results showed a small uterus!! We were overcome and so it was an easy decision to attend the clinic in Hyderabad as often as I could for monthly banana sessions whilst we were in India. Will's test results also showed a 75% improvement in his liver and thyroid functioning in just 23 days. He had been ill for over a year!

Over the next few months of banana treatment there was notable progress. I had ultrasounds after each treatment which invariably showed the uterus growing in size each month. I returned to the UK in June 2011 and had an ultrasound at a private hospital in the UK to alleviate my parent's concerns that the results were not a true reflection of what was indeed taking place. The result showed more progress, and the parents were on board!

We returned to India in late October 2011 for further travels and treatments in Hyderabad to accelerate the growth. The ultrasound following the October banana treatment showed 50% growth in the volume of the uterus since late June.

The November results indicated a further growth spurt in the length of the uterus. It was after this treatment that the lining of the uterus became fully developed and it was also the first time the radiologist was able to detect and measure the cervix. She and her nursing staff looked on in amazement. It was a wonderful moment.

An MRI in December 2011 confirmed normal myometrium, endometrial cavity and parametrium in the uterus.

I continued regular banana treatment, as well as a 42-day PK in Hyderabad in March 2012, to help support the growth process which it did enormously. In August I was due to head back to the UK - the funds were up and it was time for me to head home. However, Dr. Krishna Raju strongly advised otherwise as I was experiencing a high level of growth, so I returned in September and continued regular banana treatment and a short PK until January 2013.

The MRI in November 2013 showed that the vagina had connected with the uterus and the fallopian tubes had developed and connected also. And that is where I am tantalizingly at!

Apart from one banana treatment in Italy in the summer, I have not had any other treatment for a year and am letting Nature take her course. It is relevant that I am back at home for now, and will know when it is right to return and join the banana club again! But I am feeling it is soon. I am able to support the development by daily practising the marma touch points and special marma abyanga that I was so lucky to learn in Hyderabad. I do these daily, wherever possible, and I know they have had a profound effect on my physiology. In addition, I have also been incredibly fortunate to have the banana and PK supported by full marma treatments in Hyderabad, which I have found extremely powerful.

I have been utterly blessed to have met the Raju family and their team of supporters, both the immediate staff but also special friends of the clinic, who are all tirelessly helping the patients, supporting us on our journeys, being the embodiment of Ganesha. It is a true gift to be in their presence and truly know there is nothing to fear. My journey has been nothing short of incredible and I am really looking forward to seeing what Nature has in store and when she decides to bestow it."

Rakta Mokshana – Blood Liberation

A unique treatment to eliminate toxins from the blood.

One of the five most powerful treatments in Ayurveda
In Ayurveda, there are five prime treatments to eliminate toxins from the body known as Panchakarma.
Pancha = “Five.”
Karma = “Action.”
The “five actions” are:
1. Vamana (Therapeutic vomiting)
2. Virechena (Purgation)
3. Basti (Enema)
4. Nasya (Nasal cleanse)
5. Rakta Mokshana (Blood liberation)

The way ayurvedic medicine “liberates” blood is through the unique blood letting method of leech therapy.

Leech Therapy is indicated for:
- Skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis - according to Ayurveda, toxins that manifest as skin diseases are mostly stored in the blood.
- Blood diseases
- Necrosis: failure of blood supply
- Varicose veins, spider veins and obstructed veins
- Arthritis and joint issues
- Blood clotting - (leeches contain the most powerful anti-coagulant known to man).
- Excess pitta, or heat and acidity
- Gangrene
- Gout
- Diabetes
- Improving nerve activity and blood flow

Australian Hospitals Can’t Resist Using Leeches Today
Today in the Australian state New South Wales, alone, over 20 hospitals use leeches in their medical practice. In Europe they use leeches even more. They are mainly used post-surgery to bring back blood quickly to heal the site. Their is just no other anti-coagulant that is more powerful to increase blood circulation for healing.

The Process of Leech Treatment:
- Before placing medical grade leeches on your body to have a suck, preparation treatments such as abhyanga massage and sweating treatments are performed for a few days to loosen up, move and pull deep seated toxins to be collected in the peripheral blood tissue.
- Then the purified and hospital grade leeches are placed onto the skin om the target area until they naturally latch on and gently start sucking.
- Sucking can last for 15 minutes and go up to two hours. Everyone is different. The leeches are left on until they have had enough to drink and naturally fall off.
- Leech therapy does not hurt. It is like a teeny tiny pinch.
- After the leeches are off, a herbal anti-bacterial and wound healing paste is applied along with a bandage over the small prick.

The Leech Also Gives Back Fluid
The leech inserts a special nectar from their saliva back into the humans blood that makes the bodily intelligence to send back the bad blood only. What more is that this fluid it inserts into our body, known as Hirudin, is the most potent anti-coagulant known to man.

Unique Method of Blood Letting
A unique feature about leech therapy is that leeches are bias - they only suck toxic blood and not the pure blood.

“Just as the swan drinks only the milk from a diluted milk, similarly the leeches drink only the bad blood first from the pool of (vitiated) blood.”
~ Astanga Samgraha of Vaghbata, ch 35, 4.

A Divine Tool of Ayurveda
Lord Dhanvantari, the lord of Ayurveda and the health aspect of consciouses, brought four vital instruments to the world in each of his four hands:

1. Amrit Kalash - A pot of nectar.
2. The sound/knowledge of Ayurveda
3. Lord Vishnu’s Chakra (wheel used as a weapon)
4. A LEECH!

The Importance of Blood
Some Ayurvedic Sages even say that Rakta (Blood) is a 4th Dosha.
That’s right, consider Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Rakta!
This is because blood is the only tissue in the body that can be vitiated by itself, all other tissues are vitiated by the doshas.

This is call to action line, ready to take action?

Pancharkama Detox and Rejuvenation

Panchakarma is a methodical combination of taking herbs, treatments and adjusting diet and lifestyle to cleanse and renew the body. These treatments are hands-on, rejuvenating techniques that purge the physiological stress and toxins out of the body that cover the underlying natural state of perfect health residing in everyone.

The Process:
A certain internal environment has to be established to empower each cell to “remember” what it is like to be healthy. Each body treatment lowers metabolic rate, provides deep relaxation and an experience of total luxury. From here, the medicines and treatments will complexly adhere to toxins (Ama) in the deep tissues and dispose them in the GI tract to then be removed by the appropriate purification method - for example, enema or purgation.

Like the eye of a hurricane maintaining silence and calm as gale force winds swirl around it, establishing and maintaining a state of the deep transcendental calm allows the dynamic forcefulness of the medicines and treatments to work around this calm centre.

This state of deep and heightened internal awareness triggers a cascade of spontaneous healing on a deep cellular level where we banish our stress, fears, emotions and physiological cellular memories of illness.

What does a typical Panchakarma day at Vital Veda entail?
There is no “one size fits all” treatment in Ayurveda. Treatments are individualised and determined on the basis of each person’s constitution, state of health, daily schedule and budget. This will be determined during your initial consultation.
Generally:
Firstly you see practitioner Dylan Smith for a short consultation to monitor how you are going and he prescribes the treatment plan for that day.

Morning treatments begin after seeing practitioner Dylan Smith for a short consultation to monitor how you are going and prescribe the treatment plan for that day.
¥ Foot Bath (Pada Prakshana) - keeping the feet in medicated water to initially relax and calm the body.
¥ Abhyanga - a rhythmic massage using medicated oils to help move toxins out of the body. 
¥ Sweating Treatments - Pampering the body with warm herbal poultices (Pinda Sveda) or pouring medicated water over the body in a rhythmic manner (Parishek) will open up the pores to eliminate the toxins that have been collected.
¥ External Basti - A “well” made out dough is prepared to hold warm medicated oil over vital parts of the body such as the spine, knees, heart, liver, kidneys and more to nourish and release muscular-skeletal and organ imbalances.

Have lunch at home with guidance from Vital Veda’s recipes.

Afternoon treatments:
(can be included in with your morning treatment for those who prefer not to come into the clinic twice that day).
Takradhara or Shirodhara where medicated buttermilk or warm medicated oil is poured over the head in a rhythmic manner to pacify the mind, eradicate stress, damaging emotions, reminding the cells of perfect health and much more.

Once you have finished your series of Takra/Shiro Dhara’s, you may begin eye treatments where medicated ghee is held over the eyes to improve vision and reduce eye diseases.

By mid-afternoon you are allowed to rest by walking, meditating, listening to music or spending time with loved ones.

Light and early dinner with guidance from Vital Veda’s recipes.

Bed time treatment:
Your technician will come to your house to put you to sleep with a little oil application to the head + foot massage. Later in your PK program, you will additionally be having nourishing oil enemas to gently flush out the toxins that have been collected in the GI tract.
(bed-time treatment with a technician is optional as the patient can perform it by themselves).

Don’t our bodies digest and detox naturally?

The state of our digestion determines the state of our health. Our bodies are meant to eliminate toxins on a regular basis. The catch is, the detox pathway is the digestive pathway, and if digestion is poor, detoxification is hampered.

Over time, the inability to digest well and hence detox well causes toxins to accumulate in our individual “weak spots” (kavya-guna). This varies in each individual depending on genetics, lifestyles, diet etc. However, the typical places are the joints, lymph, liver, fats cells and in the brain. To restore balance, these accumulated toxins must be removed from the body and proper digestion and detox function must be restored. To go even deeper is to remove the root cause of the original stress - the behaviour, lifestyle or dietary patterns.

Is Panchakarma meant to be difficult/ challenging?

Mostly it is total bliss, relaxation and luxury when you are being pampered daily, a lot.
One uncomfortable aspect may be stress-release and emotions exiting the body, but this is a great outcome!
When is the best time to do Panchakarma?
When you can take time out to rest! When work and family commitments are minimal. When you can spend time away from screens!
Typically our senses are so overloaded with external stimuli that it keeps us from having a true experience of ourselves. Panchakarma turns the senses inside out to feel deeper parts of ourselves.

Perhaps the most important time to do PK is before conception, for both male and female. This is absolutely vital because the physiology of the sperm and ovum at the time of conception will be transferred to the health of the future offspring.

Duration: Panchakarma can go for 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 15, 21, or 23 days.

At the Vital Veda clinic, we offer a range of non-residential Panchakarma packages to adapt with your home and work routine. It can range from doing short sessions coinciding with work that same day, or if you can take time off work and family/social duties immerse in a full schedule as demonstrated above.

The age old method of Netra Tarpana, aka Netra Basti, is the perfect solution.

The Treatment
As a special medicated ghee is held over the eyes, one opens and closes and moves their eyes in all directions to adequately lubricate their whole eyes, as well as whole head, neck and throat region.

Other Benefits:

Improves Eye Sight
This treatment helps restore degraded vision, and prevents vision from degrading. (Prevention is a key aspect of Ayurveda). Helps correct short-sightedness and long-sightedness vision.

Macular Degeneration - Slows down the degeneration process and has the potential to reverse it. This treatment is an alternative to the conventional eye injections. Netra Tarpana is also indicated to work alongside the anti-VEGF injections and reduces the pain associated with it.

Relieves Irritated Eyes - Burning eyes, itchy eyes, feeling that something is in your eyes.

Increases Brain Function by providing oleation to the optic nerve (a cranial nerve) and regulates melatonin and serotonin.

“This is one of my personal favourite panchakarma treatments because of the relaxation and nourishment my brain feels via the vagus nerve during it. Also for the rest of the day after the treatment, with my sunglasses on and a restriction to focus my vision on anything, I have nothing else to do but relax, close my eyes and go inward.”
~ Dylan Smith, founder of Vital Veda

After the treatment sensitivity is increased so you must wear sunglasses and not read nor look at screens nor bright light for 4-5 hours.

A series of these treatments are recommended to heal the physiology on a deeper level and for sustainable results.

The medicated ghee used in our Netra Tarpana treatment contains complex and precious formulations of a vast range of organic, wild crafted and rare herbs, purified and prepared with love and mantras (primordial sounds) by the Raju Family of Vaidyas.

This ensures safety, enhances a potency and reduces the eyes stinging.

Navara – Herb Bolus Massage

Boluses are packed with specific Ayurvedic herbs prepared by the Raju family and cooked in milk with a medicinal rare type of rice (shastikashali) that is at least 2 years old.

The bolus is then soaked in hot milk and used to massage the body for a nourishing and rejuvenating effect. This massage, called Kitzi Navara, concentrates on specific areas of concern.

This Ayurvedic treatment is used for chronic and deep seated muscle, bone & nervous disorders such as:

- Osteo-Arthritis
- Joint pain
- Degeneration of spinal column and joints
- Ligament injury
- Nerve damage
- Depletion
- Fatigue and tiredness
- Emaciation
- Muscle wasting
- Paralysis
- Multiple Sclerosis

Due to the use of milk in this treatment, it is advisable to bring a change of clothes to wear until you can shower.

The medicated oils used in our treatments contain complex and precious formulations of a vast range of organic, wild crafted and rare herbs.
Purified and prepared with love and mantras (primordial sounds) by the Raju Family of Vaidyas.
