Nothing brings us more joy than to see the magnificent healing that can be gifted by Ayurveda. Ayurveda has passed the test of time due to it’s vastness as a healing science and we are constantly getting reports from patients of how it has helped them so. If you have not experienced the beautiful healing of Ayurveda, we invite you to come soon too.

We still talk about our wonderful 3 days with you in march this year and hope to return before long.

I would have needed a peaceful time to write down my experience of IVAC. It was one of the best experiences of my life as of now and wish to have more of it. I still feel all fresh and rejuvenated despite having a hectic travel schedule post 15 days of treatment. The ambiance, calmness and serenity of being there is helping in my daily chores here. I feel much lighter, calmer and collected.  Health wise i feel really awesome i do miss the regular therapies :). I have been taking all the medicines on time and trying to control my diet. The breathlessness occasionally appears but not at all as severe as it used to be. I have realized the panchakarma treatment is a must every year minimum. The snehpana and virechana really has worked and done wonders to my system. It has acted perfectly in trying to keep me away from unhealthy food. I dont feel like eating junk and unhealthy food any longer. Though Snehpana and virechana seem a little difficult at that point in time but feeling the positive impact of it afterwords makes it worthwhile. I am really glad i decided impulsively to do this and would love to revisit ASAP. Thank you all for making that place feel like a home away from home and the personal care that each member puts in is very touching.

I stayed at IVAC for two weeks to address a long term health problem. I found the main doctor at IVAC, Dr. Belaku, to be a really excellent Ayurvedic practitioner, in her diagnosis, in the daily treatment she planned, in being available (this is both during and after my stay there), and most importantly, in coming up with a long-term dietary regimen that was realistic in taking into account work and lifestyle, and so is something that I can actually follow after returning to normal life. The therapeutic treatments offered were not set in advance but idiosyncratic to my (and to each patient’s) condition, which was really nice.

Well experienced consultants and masseurs, the overall experience is very good. We stayed on for 3 days. But the next time we paln to stay longer to get on with the total detox treatment.

India offers a broad range of choices, from the wholly unacceptable to the sublime; some places of Ayurvedic treatments are as unfortunately seamy and unsanitary as to be truly scary. At the other end of the spectrum, deep in the realm of the sublime, the IVAC offers all traditional therapies of Ayurveda, with unsurpassed amenities and attention in detail. In fact at first glance, you could mistake IVAC for a small, world class spa or an intimate, recondite lodging for the elite. –  Chris Kilham is Author of many books on Yoga and natural health saya in his book “ Tales from the Medicine Trail”

No words of mine, can truly say how I feel about my stay at IVAC.Dr. Belaku (she’s only 5 foot but a GIANT of a Doctor.)and the Treatment TEAM were fab! It was common to see the Gen. Manager walking in the morning and eating the same food at dinner, as your were eating. Ms. Bhat: our Yoga Trainer, understood our ages and work with us at our level to get the best out of us. At the end of the month, I was amazed at my new ability. In short: I gave IVAC 30 days of my life, and IVAC gave me, years to my life.

I don’t feel shame to say, I was under major depression, hyper anxiety, severe back-ache due to car accident, Stubborn, freaked out, used to drink n smoke almost everyday. The first 7 days were too tough, I wanted to smoke and eat some spicy food. The 24/7 OM chanting. Each and everyone no matter from house keeping to Doctors who visits patients in their Greeted “Namaste”.  They not only showed great concern for all the patients, but they were also expert in their fields and loved what they were doing. That was the most satisfying and nourishing part of my stay. In addition, the facilities and setting were all first class, including my room, the grounds, the food, the serenity, and the view. All of this contributed to the feeling of physical and spiritual well being I left with and have tried to keep with me by utilizing all the tools that I was taught there. 

I recommend IVAC to everyone. I have been to many such places over the years, but I can honestly say that none compare to this. I plan on returning every year. Treatments are decided on at your initial doctor’s consultation; they are many and various depending on what you’ve come for. The massage treatments are just fabulous and the therapists are excellent. On top of that, the yoga instructor was extremely tolerant of a complete and utter novice and made me look forward to each session.

It was my fourth trip and this one was for my parents for them to know heavenly a place can be .. and continue to visit again and again. Today I am as confident as I have started living my life for GOOD.

Deepak TolaniSeptember 2013, United Kingdom

Upon my return, my family was very happy to see me more relaxed and with a clearer complexion. I am trying hard to keep up with the diet restrictions. I have been taking the medications on time and applying the face pack. Also, staying away from sweets was rough, but i am controlling and taking very little to reduce the cravings.

Amrita GuptaNovember 2010, India

Excellent ambience, service & staff. The staff & doctors in particular are very friendly and helpful. Excellent property with a very friendly staff. The food was great and clean. Well maintained rooms.

To all the staff at IVAC, Thank you so much for all the loving care and attention and the hard work that went into making my stay at IVAC so wonderful. I have truly had an amazing healing experience! I feel blessed to have spent a whole month here and to have met such lovely people. It is each and every one of you who made my time here such an enjoyable experience. I will never forget my stay here and I do hope to return again at some point in the future. Once again, a BIG THANK YOU to you all, and for the lovely gift and card which I will cherish. I do hope to see you all again in my next visit. Best wishes and lots of love.

I felt happy about the exceptional training that you have given to the therapists. Everyone in your team has fantastic attitude and for me this was an amazing experience. I shall make IVAC part of my annual calendar. My suggestion? Just keep it up; you have the heart in the right place.

Nandini VaidyanathanJanuary 2010, India

I want to thank you again for the cure and the time I spent with you early January of this year. Today it is like a miracle. Suddenly one month ago, and having followed your advices on food and lifestyle, I noticed a change in my system. It had already started to improve when I left your centre and it was getting better everyday until I noticed one day that I started to forget to take all the medication that the Belgian Doctors had been advising me to take for a number of years. All the problems have vanished now and today I am not taking any medicine. Neither for my diabetes problem that seems to have vanished or for my cholesterol problem that also seems to have vanished. Also my erection problem is in the process of being solved. To tell you honestly I still cannot believe this as I feel great and it is like feeling reborn. My mental attitudes have also rejuvenated and I sense a lot of energy is back in my body and brain. It is like enthusiasm and pleasure of doing things have flowed back to body and brain. I have also continued my diet and have now dropped my weight to 83 kg which seems to be OK. In terms of food I am following your advices and it seems to be working pretty well.
