Ancient Inscriptions in India reveal the rich practice of this traditional Indian system of medicine that we have almost forgotten today. Inscriptions connected with medicine are rare but we have enough of them to give us a sense that some temples in India had healing centres attached to them. These temples were mostly Vishnu temples since Hindu God Vishnu is said to be the  preserver of life in the Cosmos. Vishnu is also worshipped as Dhanvantri in India – the God of Ayurvedic Medicine.

The great immortal Ayurveda is wide enough to include all that is essential to make a man physically & mentally healthy and happy. It includes the study of right conduct (dharma), which is necessary for the healthy growth of society in which man lives. Further it deals with the philosophical aspect of life, the knowledge of which contributes greatly to the comfort and happiness of all human beings. Ayurveda does understand the limitations of human efforts. Still it firmly believes in the means of prolonging life and the methods of invigorating it.


Ayurveda recognizes the universal truth that mind is very powerful both in the causation and cure of diseases. So, strict mental discipline and adherence to moral values are considered a very important pre-requisite for robust mental & physical health. Therefore, ethical basis of life is described as an important health support system.

Proper control of  food intake and behavioural habits is an extremely important component for achieving perfect cure in ancient Ayurveda.

Many special treatments prescribed in the ancient medical classics of Ayurveda for some of the most distressing diseases are currently practised only in Kerala.

These treatments are specially effective in paralysis, rheumatism, arthritis, spondylosis, and other psychosomatic diseases. The classical therapies are also made use of, for devising new treatment modalities to deal with several serious ailments of the modern man such as parkinsonism, motor neuron diseases, cancer etc.

The experienced physician and the Ayurvedic medicines and treatments have given due reorganization to this health care system. At present this organization has branch in every nook and corner of Kerala besides many major Indian cities.


Ayurveda is more of a way of life rather than a medical science. The system helps the healthy person to maintain his/her health and diseased person to regain his/her health. Ayurveda firmly insists about one’s diet, daily routine, life style and activities to be followed on a daily basis and according to the climatic changes, age and individual potency to keep himself healthy. The practice of Ayurveda is designed to promote human happiness, health and creative growth.


Ayurvedic treatment removes the root cause of disease to give a permanent cure. Medicines are prepared from natural source like herbs, minerals etc and this in turn are accepted and assimilated in the body without creating any side effects.


The knowledge of Ayurveda was passed on orally through a lineage of sages in India until it was collated into text more than five thousand years ago. The oldest known texts on Ayurveda are the Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, and the Ashtanga Hrudaya.


Earlier, there were a lot of complaints about heavy metals being used in Ayurvedic drugs. But the important fact people are not aware of is that these heavy metals go through innumerable processes in internationally reputed Ayurvedic centres before being assigned the status of medicine for human intake in Ayurvedic Science.

    Ayurveda therapies when applied with skill and care work on both the physical and psychological levels to invigorate, relax and ease pain or tension from stiff aching muscles, boost circulation and alleviate mental stress, soothing the soul and fostering balance and serenity.
