Bone and Joint disorders

Bone issues occur in various forms like infection, inflammation, injuries, auto immune response or as a part of the ageing process. Ayurveda identifies two categories of joint problems; one is due to poorly nourished bones, which are prone to damage and the other is the accumulation of toxins, leading to joint pain and stiffness. Most commonly treated cases here are:

Osteo arthritis | Rheumatoid arthritis | Rheumatic arthritis | Post febrile (eg: post chikunguniya)   arthritis    
Psoriatic arthritis | Osteoporosis | Avascular Necrosis | Gouty arthritis  

At Heritage Kerala Ayurveda, the therapeutic procedures are conducted under expert doctors’ supervision, to ensure the two aspects of recovery:

Heal, relieve pain , restore mobility and set the patient free from pain killers/ steroids.  
Address the underlying cause and prevent recurrence and/or arrest further deterioration  
(as in extremely chronic conditions)    

Neuro-muscular disorders

A vast number of neuro/neuromuscular/muscular disorders could affect quality of one’s life. Signs and symptoms may range from a tingling sensation to total loss of mobility. The most frequent cases treated at our clinic include:

 Paralysis (Hemiplegia, Monoplegia, Diplegia, Paraplegia, Quadriplegia) | Facial palsy / Bell’s palsy
 Peripheral neuropathy | Movement disorders | Parkinson's disease | Muscular dystrophy (Duchenne’s / Becker’s)
  Myopathy | Fibromyalgia | Guillain-Barre Syndrome(GBS)

Skin diseases

Skin reflects the inner distress. More than the physical suffering, the visible pathology may affect the level of confidence of the individual, further escalating the stress. Noninfectious skin diseases mostly have an underlying cause of toxicity in the body, due to unwanted chemicals entering through food. Detoxifying procedures and medicines in Ayurveda play vital role in healing such conditions, though chronic. Diet modifications and lifestyle guidance by our expert doctors do prevent recurrence. Most common skin issues include:

Psoriasis | Eczema | Dermatitis | Folliculitis | Vitiligo | Urticaria | Pimples (Acne vulgaris)  
Ringworm | Fungal infections | Keloids  

Gastric disorders

Eating right is the key to prevent most of the digestive issues such as hyperacidity, flatulence, gastritis, constipation and indigestion.

Since numerous organs are involved, the problems associated with gastro intestinal tract could be many, ranging from acid reflux to malignancy. Doctors at Heritage Kerala Ayurveda are keen and sharp on the right diagnosis and treatment.

Some of the common diseases addressed are:
  Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) | Inflammatory bowel disease | Hepatitis | Liver diseases | Pancreatitis
  Ulcerative Colitis | Piles, Fissure, Fistula

Allergic disorders

Allergy is a manifestation of “hypersensitive” response of immune system. Habit of eating incompatible food as well as junk food with chemical additives in the name of preservatives/taste makers/flavoring agents/artificial colors pave the way for accumulation of unwanted compounds in the body, which in turn interfere with normal functioning of immune system. Thus, one may develop allergy to a particular item, to which he was never allergic before.
Ayurvedic concepts of detoxification, correction of functions and boosting immunity together control exaggerated immune responses. Common allergic issues include

Allergic Rhinitis | Asthma | Sinusitis | Skin manifestations

HIV/AIDS management

>Being diagnosed positive for HIV is never the end of the road. Heritage Kerala Ayurveda offers a patient-friendly treatment overcoming many of the limitations of the currently available drugs for HIV/AIDS management in the market. Designed by Dr. Reji Thomas in 1996, this treatment protocol is named DIAS (Defensive Immuno-modulation and Anti-HIV Strategy). His first-hand experience of treating AIDS victims since 1996, at almost all the stages of disease and his commitment to the profession contributed much towards this outcome. Our anti- retroviral package based on Ayurveda (the traditional and well-documented health care system of India) has brought many back to life. This happens to be the befitting response to the WHO's appeal for "alternative therapies including traditional approaches to care and treatment".

The following features make DIAS unique and acceptable.

Purely Ayurvedic formulations, which never create side effects, toxicity, intolerance or drug resistance
Proved efficacy in immune reconstitution, in accordance with WHO guidelines for monitoring anti-retroviral therapy.
Laboratory evidence for consistent proliferation and maintenance of CD4+ cells. (CD4+ T-cells safeguard the human immune system. HIV directly destroys them, causing a fall in number and in turn, immune deficit. The treatment is termed effective, only if CD4+ cell count increases and maintains at satisfactory levels.)
Inhibits HIV replication and activity.
Ascertains longevity of the patient, arresting the disease progression and effectively combating opportunistic infections.
Improves the quality of life and protects the immune system; sets the patient free from any threat on life, though he remains positive.
Cost-effective and affordable.
