School of Health Sciences

This is essentially a school of health sciences. Its principal focus and pivot is the Ayurveda Shastra. However the school will be dedicated to resurrecting the weakened creative spirit of Ayurveda and hence it will engage in exploring the scope of integrative medicine. By integrative medicine we mean the interface between Ayurveda and other health sciences viz; biomedical sciences, Yoga, Sidha, Unani and including the highly diverse, ecosystem and ethnic community specific, health practices, in different parts of India. The word integrative is quite distinct from the term integrated. The former implies exploration and evolution, the latter implies a completion or closure.

Centre for Clinical Research and Public Health

The clinical research centre will engage in strategic research, based on internationally acceptable protocols and guidelines, to establish the efficacy of the whole systems approach of Ayurveda. The center is currently engaged in a multi-centric study to study the genetic basis of Prakriti in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and other partners.
