Blending Text, Tradition, and Science to rediscover Ayurveda

AVP Research Foundation (AVPRF), a pioneer Ayurveda research institute in Coimbatore, India, is revolutionizing the healthcare industry by taking successful measures to reestablish Ayurveda in mainstream healthcare. AVPRF has put forth a lot of effort into doing in-depth multi-disciplinary and collaborative research in Ayurveda. We have developed innovative and effective Ayurveda disease management protocols and formulations for personalized and holistic Ayurveda therapy. To make practise based Evidence in Ayurveda healthcare solutions available to the general public, we have established specialty Ayurveda clinics and extensive community outreach programs globally.

Rather than force-fitting Ayurveda into modern research approaches, AVPRF works to develop appropriate research methodologies that address the complexity of Ayurvedic treatments that seek to integrate the individual’s body, mind, and soul to promote healing. AVP Research Foundation is recognized as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (SIRO) by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India. AVPRF is a subsidiary of The Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (Coimbatore) Ltd. AVPRF also provides specialized Ayurveda education and actively conducts Ayurveda text-based learning conferences and workshops.

Personalized Ayurvedic Treatment

Personalized medicine is a paradigm that has existed for as long as people have been practicing medicine. From Charaka to Hippocrates, everyone has used a customized approach to treat a broad spectrum of diseases. Prakriti-based medicine can play a pivotal role in this changing scenario of the global health management system through effective integration of omics. Ayurveda is built on the three pillars of Prakriti-based medicine namely ahara (diet), vihara (lifestyle), and aushadhi (medication), ultimately making Ayurveda a comprehensive and integrated system of medicine.

Prakriti-based medicine and other traditional medical systems in Ayurveda have the ability to provide solutions to a range of complex medical conditions. One of the noted among the Prakriti-based medicine is the Panchakarma treatment. Panchakarma treatment is an Ayurvedic treatment classified as an elimination or purgation therapy. An intensive and purifying course of treatment is offered in our Panacharkarma treatment center in Coimbatore, India at its highest quality. Panchakarma consists of five types of treatment to cleanse the body of toxins, restoring it to a state of purity and balance.
