If you want the whole story, you need to read my blog "A month in Kerala" which you'll find at www.sunshinespices.blogspot.com.
This is an amazing place, it's not a spa and it's not a health farm; it's a centre dedicated to Ayurveda in its strictest sense "The Science of Living."
I did a 28-day programme, and I could never have achieved the same results in any shorter period. The doctors are highly qualified and very through (you have a daily consultation.) The therapists are friendly and skilful, and all the resort staff are helpful. The guests when I was there were a cosmopolitan bunch from the recycled hippies of my generation to earnest 20-somethings looking for a different experience.
It's remote - in the jungle. It's beautiful and unspoilt. It's simple almost to the point of being primitive. It's serious - the doctors and therapists want to help you get the results you are aiming for. I lost 16.8kg (37lbs) in 25 days of treatment, and came home with enough medicines to keep me on track for the next 6 weeks.
If you're seriously interested, read the blog - I don't pull any punches.
