Indians are proud of Indian traditions. We are the pioneers in Ayurveda System of Treatment. China has their own system of medicine. German have at their hand homoeopathy as their system of medicine. Modern medicine is of European parentage. For ages, Ayurveda has truly been remained as India's own system of medicine. Our ancient sages had put their heart immensely into this discipline. But Govt of India has not accepted Ayurveda as our system of Medicine. A declaration of Ayurveda to be our national system of treatment is long awaited.

Programmes & Schemes

The traditional systems of medicine are great relevance to the health of the people. It is calculated that 80 percent of the world population are still relying on traditional system.
Kerala is the first state in the country, which separates the traditional ayurveda into three, viz. Indian systems of Medicine, Homoeopathy and Ayurveda Medical Education. The Department of Indian Systems of medicine in Kerala undertakes medical aid mainly in Ayurveda systems to the people through the network of Ayurveda Hospitals, and Dispensaries. In-patients and out-patients are treated in the Hospitals and no in- patients are treated in the Dispensaries. For the population of more than 3 crores the department has 727 Ayurveda Dispensaries and 115 Ayurveda Hospitals all over the state. The Department has District Ayurveda Hospitals and District Medical officers in all the 14 Districts.
One Sidha Hospital at Vallakkadavu in Thiruvananthapuram District, Seven Sidha Dispensaries and two units attached to the Ayurveda Hospitals are also functioning in the state. Due to the dearth of qualified hands in sidha Medicine, initial steps are being taken to start a sidha college in the state. Dr. P.K. Mohanlal, former Director of Ayurveda Medical Education was appointed as a special officer for this purpose and he has submitted a report to Government.
One unani Dispensary is also functioning under this Department at mogral in Kasargod District.
In another scheme, for the continuance of the hereditary system we are providing Grant - in - aid to 97 (Ninety seven) private hereditary Ayurvedic physicians.
