Set in the picturesque town of Ottapalam in Kerala is one of India's most trusted destinations for holistic healing Padinharkkara Ayurveda Hospital & Research Centre (PAHRC). A strong focus on research, personalised treatment plans, and the unmatched expertise of the chief physician, are all reasons why people from different parts of the world keep flocking to this hospital, year after year. While qualified doctors and therapists administer treatments ranging from massages to more rigorous modes of toxic elimination, the Ayurvedic therapies at PAHRC are strongly rooted in ancient traditions. The serene atmosphere of the hospital campus with its lush green environs and rustic ambience makes it a beautiful haven for patients recuperating from serious illnesses.
Dr. Sethumadhavan, the founder and chief physician of PAHRC, is a master healer who has blazed a new trail in Ayurvedic research and therapies. After completing his basic studies in Ayurveda at the Vaidyaratnam Ayurveda College, Thaikattusery, he served as a government physician for many decades and also bagged a doctorate in his chosen field. His innate curiosity, voracious reading of the ancient texts and keen powers of observation have moulded him into a physician who always thinks out of the box. For fine-tuning and resurrecting age-old therapies, Dr. Sethumadhavan has travelled far and wide across the country, even trekking through Himalayas to meet sages and sanyasis. His intellectual journey has made him an authority in Kutipraveshika Rasayana Chikitsa.
