S D M Ayurvedic Hospital Udupi

Healthcare In Udupi

Serving to Heal

In a world degenerated by pollution and unhealthy lifestyle, the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda holds the key to good health. Relying largely on the human body’s inherent capacity for healing, it offers a treatment system that is free from side effects.

It is to bring you the benefits of this time tested system of medicine that the S.D.M. Ayurveda Hospital at Udupi was established. A unit of the Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Educational Trust, the Hospital is guided by the noble traditions of Shree Kshetra Dharmasthala, the venerated pilgrim centre of Dakshina Kannada. The project is also a tribute to the personal interest taken by its president Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade, the Dharmadhikari of Dharmasthala, a man of rare vision and a deep commitment to preserve our country’s priceless heritage.

With a tradition of over forty years, the Hospital is today a widely acclaimed centre for natural healing, which attract patients from even foreign countries. Its magnificent octagonal architecture – inspired by the eight branches of Ayurveda houses a 300-bed facility. The treatments offered are varied, encompassing almost the entire range of Ayurvedic remedies. Alternate disciplines like yoga and physiotherapy provide an integrated approach to recovery.

Though the science of Ayurveda is an ancient one, the S.D.M. Ayurveda Hospital, for all practical purposes, is a modern hospital incorporating contemporary techniques of administration and medical management.

The Hospital is closely linked to the S.D.M. Ayurveda College and S.D.M. Ayurveda Pharmacy, which provides a bulk of the medicines prepared from natural ingredients.
