More Rishi Ayurveda hospitals
The Kerala based Rishi Ayurveda Hospital and Research Centre will open its fourth centre in Haripad in Alappuzha district.
Announcing this at a news conference Rishi Group Founder and Managing Director Dr Sebastian Njarallakattu said that his group was planning to invest Rs 100 to set up more hospitals.
Rishi Ayurveda Hospital and Research centre currently has its presence in Trivandrum, Kottayam and Kochi and it would open their next unit at Kozhikode in December this year, he said.
The new full-fledged 70-bed specialty hospital, to be inaugurated by KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala on November 19, would have well furnished airconditioned and non a/c rooms, recreational, exercise facilities and the capability to provide comprehensive treatment to five patients simultaneously.
Stating that Rishi Ayurveda Hospital is the first and only Ayurvedic Diabetic Specialty Hospital and Research Centre in the World, he claimed that with treatment here 90 per cent of diabetics had recovered.
Pointing out there was a myth about diabetes, Dr Sebastian said "people believe that since diabetes is common all over the world, treatment should also be universal. This is not true, people of different races and from different gene pools have differing levels of hormone production and cuisine." Along with internally administered medication, Rishi's approach to diabetes also includes the use of externally applied 'Thailams'(Oil), diet control and regular exercise, he claimed with this unique and all-encompassing approach the success of diabetes treatment was 90 per cent for Type two diabetes.
Most In-patients have also been able to reduce their Insulin dependency by 80 per cent within the first 20 days of treatment in the facility, he added.
