Health and Ayurvedic Tourism
Ayurveda evolved around 600 BC in India. This new system of medicine stressed on the prevention of body ailments in addition to curing them. Followed by the Dravidians and Aryans alike, Ayurveda has been practiced ever since. Today, it's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine - a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body's humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance. Kerala has modulated many special treatments to suit the needs of patients and to cure diseases. They include various irrigation therapies and fomentation combined with synchronized massage. Pizhicil, Navara kizhi and Shiro dhaara, some of the Kerala specialties, constitute major tools in rejuvenation therapy and in providing relaxation to the stressed and strained.
Experience beautiful Kerala along with superlative dental care. At a price as affordable as it can be. We call it a dental vacation. Dental treatment in Europe, United Kingdom, America, Australia and Middle East is at least 5 to 10 times costlier than the same treatment in Kerala. Dental treatment is generally not reimbursed by the National Health Schemes of some countries and is too expensive. In addition to their exorbitant dental cost is the inconvenience of having to wait for extended periods to undergo various corrective surgeries. These delays can be often detrimental to the patient's health.
Kerala has undoubtedly become the global health destination. India is a leading country promoting cost effective medical tourism in the world. It has even moved into a new area of "medical outsourcing" where subcontractors aim to provide services to the overburdened medical care systems in western countries. Inflow for treatment purposes to Kerala, is growing by 18% a year and the Indian education system is churning out an estimated 40,000 medical professionals each year. Kerala benefits from a large staff of world class experts and the ultra-competitive cost advantage it offers. While a heart surgery costs $25000 in the US, it costs $7,000 in Kerala. Similarly, a bone marrow transplant costs $23,000 here compared to $250,000 in the US.
