The Values We Believe In

Ayurveda is the oldest healthcare science in the entire world. We can trace its documented scientific principles back to the Vedas. It has also evolved non-stop on clinical pieces of evidence over the last 5000 years. Kerala has preserved this branch of knowledge over the generations. Our family has provided the best ayurveda treatment in Kerala for 3 generations.

For us, ayurveda is a way of life. and an essential part of our culture. Our experienced doctors blend ayurveda treatments with nutrition, individual guidance, and diet. Matha started its operations as a small family-run ayurveda eye hospital.

Over the years, it developed into a one of its kind specialty ayurvedic center for eye diseases. Panchakarma center and ayurveda yoga was later added to our portfolio. Ayurvedic treatments are our only focus. Our treatment centre uses only fresh herbal preparations for ayurveda therapies.

Matha practices ayurvedic science. Every medical decision taken by our physicians is based on scientific principles and evidence-based practice. This aspect is important to us. Traditional methods are followed for implementing this science.
