According to Ayurveda, treatments done in the Monsoon season have great importance as the monsoon affects each of the doshas in different ways. A lot of waste materials are accumulated during the summer and aggravated by the rain; this results in an excess of Vata. The Vata dosha causes several diseases and can aggravate many conditions.
Karkataka Chikitsa is particularly effective in the prevention of diseases and in increasing energy levels, reinvigorating the body and extending the longevity of life. Moreover, it also prevents many other ailments such as arthritis, Spondylitis, back pain, insomnia, muscular pain, stress, and depression.
