Additional Information

It is with immense approval and admiration that I place on record my heartfelt appreciation of Dr. Biju Kulamavu, Chief Physician and his team of staff at the Santhimandiram Ayurvedic Hospital, Mannanam Kottayam, Kerala. Dr. Biju’s concerted efforts, dedication and confidence enabled me to fully recover from a rare nerve and muscle-related ailment that I had been suffering from over 22 years, which adversely affected my voice, tongue and consequently my ability to speak legibly. I fully owe this recovery to the Grace bestowed by God Almighty on Dr, Biju and his devoted team of staff.

Dr. Biju’s confidence and effectively planned treatment modes with age old traditional Ayurvedic remedies helped me steadily improve and today, three years after my treatment under Dr. Biju Kulamavu began. I have fully recovered and am able to attend to my diverse priestly duties with renewed vigor. I also feel gratified that many from far and wide, since learning of my cure, have also visited Santhimandiram Ayurvedic Hospitl and benefited from the diverse treatments provided here by Dr, Biju and his committed team. With profound gratitude, all praise to God and wishing the activities of Santhimandiram all success and fame in the years ahead.
