Ayurveda recognizes four types of fats; ghrita (ghee), oil (sesame), vasa (muscle), and majjā (marrow). The unique properties of ghrita stay intact, even when combined with herbs of differing qualities does not lose its own qualities. Ghrita alleviates pitta and vata and is beneficial for rasa, shukra, and oja. It provides relief from burning sensation, softens the tissues, improves voice and complexion.
Massage and the application of oil plays a vital role in the Ayurvedic system of healing. Occupational-therapy is achieved in Kerala by the scientific method of massaging. New types of massages known as effleurage, petrissage, and tapotement cannot yield as good results as the Kerala massages.
The application of herbal oil is the heart of Ayurvedic treatment. Oiling the body is a great way to keep the skin soft, supple and beautiful. Herbal oil massage offers great benefits; it normalizes vata and pitta, increases immunity, strengthens bones and muscles, nourishes skin cells, increases longevity, improves the quality of vision, speech, and sleep. It is simply anti-aging.

A build-up of toxins is a primary cause of disease, according to Ayurveda. Toxins, also known as Ama, can manifest physically or mentally. Toxins accumulate when we eat food that isn't properly digested and then eliminated. Ama is known as the "mother" of all diseases: arthritis, heart problems, digestive issues, chronic problems, you name it.
Ayurveda recommends 5 steps to eliminate toxins.
