The hospital is located at Vavanoor near Koottanad in Palakkad district, Kerala.

Ayurveda is considered the science of life and wellbeing. It is the oldest documented body of holistic medical knowledge known to man. This treatment stream originated in India and is believed to be over 6,000 years old. The earliest knowledge of Ayurveda was codified into a text called Charaka Samhita by Charaka, the legendary physician, in about 2nd Centrury BC. Ayurveda has been in practice for centuries and its efficacies are proven. Today, Ayurveda treatment compliments modern Allopathic medicine in treating many diseases more efficiently and effectively.

Ashtamgam is guided by living legends of Ayurveda – highly trained, clinically experienced traditional practitioners as well as trained Ayurveda doctors with long years of experience and repute who hail from Traditional Ashtavaidya Families. Together, they have created a new benchmark in the Ayurvedic health science, treatment and research. Asthamgam has a both Out Patient and In Patient treatment services. The OP department offers treatments for Shalya Tantram, Shalakya Tantram, Kaya Chikitsa, Panchakarma, Kumarabruthyam etc. The IP department offers excellent room facilities, consultation with doctors, Ayurvedic food, Ashtamgam Care Units and other facilities.

At Ashtamgam, consultation is offered by eminent physicians, including the Ashtavaidyas, and the treatments are carried out under the direct supervision of experts. Ashtavaidyas, the traditional Ayurvedic practitioners of Kerala, are master physicians in all the 8 branches of Ayurveda, and hence the name. Visiting Acharyas at Ashtamgam includes Ashtavaidyas, Arya Vaidyas and Specialist Physicians/Surgeons in different branches. Their accurate diagnosis and prescription, combined with authentic medicines, hasten the healing process. Further, in order to achieve complete cure, the treatment also includes the recommendations of Jyothishastra and Vaasthushastra, which are traditional Indian sciences that share their roots with Ayurveda. Jyothishastra advice by renowned astrologist Kanippayyur Narayanan Namboodirlppad and Vaasthushastra advice by Kanippayyur Krishnan Namboodirippad, a doyen in the field, are offered at Ashtamgam, by prior appointment. This method of treatment is unique to Ashtamgam.

The driving force behind Ashtamgam Ayurveda Chikitsalayam and Vidyapeedham is a collection of minds of renowned and widely respected doyens of Ayurveda, who have united by a larger purpose of rebuilding Indian values and culture debased by themodern ways of life. The guidance and service of illustrious practitioners of Ayurveda, the judicious mix of traditional practices and modern technology, strict adherence to the quality of treatment will all form the corner stone’s of the institution’s exemplary service. Ayurveda, the science of life and healthcare, is an invaluable stream of knowledge originating from the wealth of ancient Indian wisdom developed by rishis, or holy sages.India’s contribution to the world, however, is not just its amazing repertoire of hereditary knowledge, but a unique method of teaching as well – the gurukula system.The teachings of Ayurveda should be passed on to students in a manner consistent with the purpose and philosophy of this science. The limitations of thewestern system of institutionalized education adopted for Ayurveda may well have had an adverse impact on this system of healthcare itself. With a view to restore the sanctity of age-old values and practices, recreate the genial atmosphere of the guru-shishya relationship, and to reinstate Ayurveda to its lost glory, we are giving shape to a new paradigm of excellence in Ayurvedic education – Ashtamgam Ayurveda Chikitsalayam and Vidyapeedham.

What the modern world now demands is a medical science that can respond effectively to the health care needs of today. Through this initiative, we intend toredefine Ayurveda’s relevance in the present-day context and make it a system of healthcare the world can fully depend on. We look at this venture as ahumble step towards realizing the motto of Ayurveda, as propounded by sages – “loka samastha sukhino bhavanthu”
