About Us

Kerala-the southern state of peninsular india , with its exotic serene environment and rich traditions is considered to be the cradle of Ayurveda where this system became a way of life more than a medical system to cure the diseases. Centuries of ancestral traditions in Ayurveda are strongly linked to certain families which attracted people from even distant places to get the correct remedy for serious ailments. The vast clinical experience gathered by the Vaidya (Physician)in such a family passed on their knowledge to their sons/daughters and kept alive in its undiluted form for generations.
For decades dating back even to the reign of cochin dynasty in south india ,the Kalarickal family situated at Kanjoor near Kalady in Kerala has been reputed for Kalarippayattu (Martial arts),Marma chikitsa and Ayurvedic treatments .Here is a model of health and healing that stood the test of time blending Tradition ,Authority and Science. Legend have it that when the then cochin empire was in constant threat form outside , ancestors of the family who were the masters in Kalarippayattu (martial arts)and Marma chikitsa(Vital points) were brought from Malabar (North Kerala)to impart expert training to the soldiers of the dynasty by the orders from the Highness of Cochin. Most of the descendents of these masters were scholars in Sanskrit and Ayurveda.
Sreepadam Ayurveda Chikitsalayam as an authentic treatment center was established by Dr K Sasidharan , the elder son of Vaidya KK Sreedhara kurup with an aim to continue the familys illustrious tradition in Ayurveda and to take it to the next level in health care management .Vaidya KKS Kurup of this family , was a doyen in Ayurveda and a great scholar in various Indian knowledge systems.
>Sreepadam Ayurveda Chikitsalayam presently has grown into a healing Tavern in the lap of a tranquil unpolluted village at Kanjoor near Kalady, Kerala. This is the home of Ayurveda in every sense with a total homely ambience and medicines prepared in clay pots and simple food prepared with vegetables from organic farming. Let us get back to the nature and The Healing Tavern is the alluring inspiration towards our illustrious ancestry.
