Itoozhi Ayurveda Illam-18th century-Artist depiction

Itoozhi Ayurveda is one of the leading Ayurvedic hospitals in India, committed to spreading the true message of the Science of Life, based on a deep respect of its traditional treatises and combining it with the spirit of innovative processes that stay true to its traditions.

The Itoozhi Namboothiri Family is considered to be one of the authentic Vaidya Kudumbams in Ayurvedic Science. Legend has it that the Itoozhi Namboothiris were the chosen physicians of Perinjalloor village, founded by the warrior-saint of Indian mythology, Sage Parashurama. The unique methodology of holistic treatment by the physicians from Itoozhi Illam has been admired and adapted by many of their peers and still remains the most popular family of holistic healers in the Malabar traditions.

Currently based out of Kannur in Kerala, the house of Itoozhi Ayurveda is a conglomeration of the Itoozhi Vaidyasala, Itoozhi Nursing Home, Itoozhi Academy of Ayurveda Research & Development, Itoozhi Eye Clinic, The Itoozhi Panchakarma Centre, Itoozhi Reproductive Medicine Clinic and the Itoozhi Yoga and Physiotherapy Center. Today Itoozhi ayurveda is one of the most sought after ayurvedic hospitals in India.

Our Vision

asato ma sadgamaya (Lead me from unreality to the supreme reality)
tamaso ma jyotirgamaya (Lead me from darkness to light)
mrtyorma amrtam gamaya (Lead me from death to immortality)

Brhadaranyaka Upanishad I.iii.28

Itoozhi Ayurveda’s vision is Vision! To have Vision for All – to abolish afflictions that affect vision of any kind from the community, resulting in a global kinship that lives longer and sustains oneself with zero level of physical dependence on others.

Itoozhi Ayurveda’s mission has always been to offer treatments and techniques to increase the holistic quality of life. And our vision has been no different. Inspired and rejuvenated by the incantation from the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad, Itoozhi Ayurveda’s Vision for the planet is ‘Vision’. According to the last census, there are over 12 million people affected with some form of visual impairment or affliction in India, and sadly, over 25 percent of the total population of visually challenged people in the whole world are found in India.

It is also in this regard that we have chosen Traditional Eye Treatment and Care as one of our core disciplines of healing and treatment – a fact that has been suitably emphasized in our daily activities in community health care. A vision that we hope to fulfill utilising the strength of the traditional Ayurvedic treatments and techniques, that emphasises holistic well-being rather than local healing.

Itoozhi Ayurveda is committed in its vision to bring Vision for All, regardless of class or distinctions, in the true physical spirit of the Upanishads, from darkness to light, from sadness to joy and from inability to complete health.
