Kerala Emerging Destination For Medical Tourism In Indiaby Puja Sharma Content Writer
Ayurveda or ‘life science’ as it can be translated to, is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world. Ayurveda is an essential part of Indian culture and tradition and is well known for its natural treatments for various health and mental disorders. It is one of the most popular forms of alternative medicine. Ayurvedic doctors and practitioners regard the body, the mind and the soul to be one unit and therefore, adopt a holistic approach that targets to remove the source of the disorder, rather than just treating the effects.
According to a survey, more than 80 percent of Indians use some form of traditional medicine. While its effectiveness has not been scientifically established, Ayurvedic medicines and treatments are very popular and are preferred for their completely natural medicinal components that do not have side-effects. Indian Ayurvedic schools and hospitals have become widely popular even in the West and attract thousands of people.
