A rare ambassador of Ayurveda visited the city on Tuesday. President of Mauritius, Rajkeswur Purrya g, who came to the city to felicitate Punarnava Ayurvedic Hospital that  received the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals (NABH) certificate for quality health care and safety, was all in praise for Ayurvedic medicines.

Ayurveda is not just a medicine, but a way of life, said Puryaag. He pointed out that at a time when medicines across the globe are getting costlier, people are returning to nature’s basics.

“Medicines are not accessible to the poor, so they are turning to basics. Doctors are prescribing Vedic medicines. Doctors in the US are prescribing yoga to patients,” Puryaag said, after handing over the NABH certificate for quality health care and safety to A M Anvar, chairman and managing director of the hospital at Edappally.

After thanking India for promoting Ayurveda, he added that his experience with Ayurveda was more than satisfying.

“For the past one year I have been taking medicines and my health has become better than what it was.”

Bhawana Gulati Muradia, Assistant Director, NABH and health care providers, delivered the keynote address.
