By cleansing the colon and then applying herbal medicines there that nourish and heal the colon and improve its absorptive power we nourish the entire body.

My husband and I were looking for a place to relax and rejuvenate in a secluded place surrounded with greenery and Ayurveda Sanctuary turned out to be the perfect place for it. We stayed here for 4 days.We were offered a cozy cottage midst green tall trees, it had a nice vintage feel to it.The food was very healthy yet delectable, soups were just amazing.The surroundings were so calm and serene that one can clearly hear chirping of birds at anytime of the day.
Consultations, yoga/meditation and therapy sessions with Dr. Manjula has not only helped in rejuvenation but also taught us a lot about Ayurveda way of living and its benefits. Dr. Prashanth made us feel as part of 'Sanctuary'; he accompanied us to the farm, sunset point, lake and also got us a telescope for star gazing. The hospitality extended by Dr. Prashanth and his team is commendable.
The overall experience has been truly enriching as we thoroughly enjoyed each moment we spent in the 'Sanctuary' and would definitely revisit soon for a longer stay.
