Sree Sankara Ayurveda Vaidyasala
Ayurveda, which means "Knowledge of Life”, is perhaps the most ancient Science of Health known to man. Ayurveda has its roots deep in Nature but it evolved through centuries of research by sages determined to unearth the secrets of Nature for the benefit of suffering mankind. It advocates a life in tune with Mother Nature and when Man, by going against Nature, opens the gateway to diseases, Ayurveda offers a system of cure which runs parallel to Nature. However it does not stop short at bodily cure, but goes far beyond, to inculcate a regimen that encompasses the physical, mental and "spirit" planes. This holistic approach aims at establishing harmony of Body, Mind and Soul, leading to fulfilment and bliss even in this lifetime.
Based on this philosophy of health, in the year 1975 the late Dr. M.S. Chandrasekharan Nair, an eminent Ayurvedic expert founded Sree Sankara Ayurveda Vaidyasala in Changanacherry, Kerala. He was a member of the Faculty of Ayurveda at the University of Kerala and also empanelled as a member of the Government Advisory Council.
The four sons M.C.Mohanachandradas, Dr.M.C.Rajachandradas, M.C.Balachandradas and Dr.M.C.Vijayachandradas of Dr. Chandrasekharan Nair imbibed his practical wisdom and inherited his legendary dedication. They all followed in his footsteps. Each son, under his own chosen portfolio, introduced principles of modern management in organization, harnessed modern technology for production, expanded the spectrum of health services and identified new locations for a wider reach. Their joint efforts took Sree Sankara Ayurveda Vaidyasala to new heights and won it a place of honour on the map of Global Health Care.
Sree Sankara Ayurveda Vaidyasala has been quick to seize on the advantages of Modernization. It has invested in a well equipped manufacturing facility conforming to GMP Standards of production and hygiene. The raw materials such as herbs and spices and minerals undergo rigid quality control checks, and the, manufacturing protocols are just as stringent.
