In this seminar Dr. Vijith teaches you how to treat each dosha: a practical and clinically important overview of guidelines!

What is Dosha Upakrama

Dosha Upakrama refers to all forms of Chikitsa (treatment) for a particular dosha. One could also describe it as the guidelines to treat a particular dosha. These guidelines are partly of a more general nature and focus on the more specific treatments falling under Shodhana (purification) and Shamana (pacification) Chikitsa. But other guidelines are more specific and additional treatment modalities are given in order to balance the respective dosha. Ayurveda is unique in its rich variety of treatment modalities. Dr. Vijith will point out how the three doshas are the pillars of Ayurveda, how to classify treatments of each dosha and how to understand the entire treatment palette for each dosha, its features and the principles behind it. Very practical and applied – a must for your clinical practice skills!

Dr. Vijith writes the following:

“Rogastu dosha vaishamyam, dosha samyam arogata!”

‘Ashtanga Hrdayam Sutrasthana first chapter defines disease as just the imbalance of doshas and health as the state of balanced doshas. This conscious focus on treating doshas to correct the dhatus is one of the major changes that Vagbhata contributes to the Ayurvedic thought flow. Charaka samhita discusses in detail about the imbalances of srotas and their management whereas Vagbhata spoke little about it. He silently conveys the message that the function is controlling the structure. Doshas are the functional units which develop the foetus from embryo in the mother’s womb. And they maintain and repair it when damaged from any causes. We know doshas as the culprit behind disease but we don’t realize that it is part of our self-defence. Dosha Upakramaniyam is an inevitable chapter for Ayurvedic practitioners to master and put into practice.’

“Treat Vata like your friend!”

“Treat Pitta like a King!”

“Treat Kapha like your opponent!”

Wat is Dosha Upakrama

Dosha Upakrama verwijst naar een overzicht van alle mogelijke vormen van Chikitsa (behandeling) die voor een bepaalde Dosha in aanmerking komen. Men zou het ook kunnen omschrijven als de richtlijnen om een bepaalde Dosha te behandelen. Deze richtlijnen zijn deels meer algemeen van aard en richten zich in die hoedanigheid ook op de meer specifieke behandelingen die vallen onder Shodhana en Shamana Chikitsa. Maar andere richtlijnen zijn meer specifiek en geven extra behandelingsmodaliteiten teneinde de betreffende Dosha tot rust te brengen. Ayurveda is uniek in haar rijke schakering aan behandelingsmodaliteiten. Daar de drie Dosha’s de pijlers van Ayurveda vormen, geeft een indeling van behandeling per Dosha een goed algemeen overzicht alsmede meer inzicht in het gehele behandelingpalet, de mogelijkheden daarvan en de principes erachter. 



• 18/19 May: 'The practical use of some key South Indian ayurvedic complex preparations' (available in The Netherlands)

• 30/31 May: ‘Clinical Assessment in Practice – guidelines on step-by-step assessment of your clients/patients; with live examples’

Location: Arnhem; Price: €180-

In this seminar Dr. Vijith will teach in an alive Q&A set up the ins and outs of how to assess your clients or patients: what has priority, how to ask for additional information, when and what to check with a client or patient, which conclusions to draw and which not.

This seminar is for designed as a practical seminar for our almost graduating third year students and is open only for a small group of selected extra participants, who must be skilled and working practitioners, well versed in the teachings of Ayurveda, as this seminar is not meant to revert to the basic principles of Ayurveda in terms of theory of pathology and examination, unless it supports the deeper understanding of the cases being discussed in class. Students/participants are invited to bring in case studies, and – when appropriate – clients or patients can be brought to class for ‘live’ assessment. Clients or patients have to fully agree with this as well as understand the learning environment of the assessment and its implications. Students/participants guarantee full confidentiality. If you are interested in joining this highly interesting and practice-oriented seminar, please contact Coen van der Kroon personally through This email address is being protected from spambots.

from Dr. Vijith's website and his clinic, see also:

"A physician in Ayurvedic terms is known as VAIDYA, or one who has a perfect knowledge about the subject. Here Ayurveda being a very personalized knowledge system it demands a long and arduous training in the theory and practice of the system under a GURU or preceptor. The soul of this institution is one such rare personality who had an intensive training under two of the best practicing traditions existing in Kerala. Vaidya Vijith Sasidhar after acquiring his graduation in Ayurveda decided to go in for the traditional learning and the result has been a fine practitioner who is not ready to be constrained under the shackles of orthodoxy and embraces the universality of the science in its true sense.

Vaidya Vijith has also worked on several path breaking research programs in one of the best research institutions in India. Of late, he has been on a pursuit of designing innovative practice methods for meeting the demands of a rapidly changing world.

Sreekrishna Ayurveda Chikitsa Kendram has been his personal dream. This healing institution blends the olden tradition of ayurveda in which the home of Ayurvedic physician used to be the home of the patient during the time of treatment procedures which ensured a personal care and constant support by the physician and modern amenities for a demanding world. Situated on the picturesque banks of the Vadayar River it ensures a healing touch to your body and soul.

Over the time in order to meet the growing demands two like minded physicians from the same tradition have been brought in to fulfill the idea of personalized care. Dr. Sreejith K.J. and Dr. Diana Sreejith would be serving as the resident physicians to provide round the clock services to the patrons."
