Sreedhareeyam Ayurvedic Medicines - Kaloor

Sreedhareeyam, the leading name in Ayurvedic Eye care traces its origins to Nelliakatu Mana an ancient, reputed Brahmin family in Kerala with a  400-year old history.Kerala has always been known as one of the chief centres of early Ayurvedic practice in India. The science of Ayurveda it is believed is divided into 8 segments or parts with each part corresponding to a special part of our body. The ancient sages of yore selected 8 prominent families and blessed and bestowed on them to carry on the treatment for the welfare of mankind. Thus since olden days Ayurvedic Ophthalmology was the stronghold of Nellikattu Mana family.
Though Ayurveda is practised extensively for common ailments like arthirites-vadham and other diseases eye care was the exclusive practice of Nelliakatu Mana and a few select families.Tracing back the history of Sreedhareeyam, Vaidyan Nelliakattu Veliaynarayan Namboothiri -1800-1850 was succeeded by Vaidyan Nellikattu Valiyaparameshwaran Namboothiri. During this time due to divine interpretation and blessing from the almighty this institution witnessed many unbelievable miracles that are recorded in the ancient documents.
It was in 1925 that the famous brothers, Nelliakattu Vaidyans Trivikraman Namboothiri and Parameshwaran Namboothir jointly formed Sreedhari Vaidyashala, as a mark of respect to their Guru Madom Sreedharan Namboothiri. Devoted, skilled and equipped with vast resources of knowledge and wisdom acquired from their ancestors, the vaidyashala that cured thousands of patients with eye ailments was a boon to society. Under the able guidance of the two dedicated brothers.The elder Vikraman Vaidyan prescribing the treatment and the younger Parameshwar Vadiyan organizing the herbs and medicines, Sreedhari Vadiyashala grew in stature and the knowledge and techniques were inherited from generation to generation.

According to Ayurveda, eye diseases are manifestations of imbalance of 'doshas' within the human body and therefore, needn't be viewed in isolation. Most eye ailments witnessed today are unfortunately lifestyle related. Long hours of work, commuting and travel, bad food habits and of course, smoking and drinking habits play their role. These lead to blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and several other problems. These also lead to degenerative and regenerative diseases of the eyes like diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. Early detection of ailments helps in faster and better recovery. If treated early, Ayurveda strengthens the nervous system and prevents degeneration of the optic nerves.

Ayurveda deals with “Ashtangas”, the eighth 'Angas' (parts). Among these, Urdhwanga Chikitsa is most important, since it deals with eye, ear, nose, face and head. Head is said to be the 'Uthanaga' (prime part) of human body. There are descriptions of about 76 eye diseases, 28 ear diseases and 31 nose diseases in Shalakya Tantra. Many of the illness like Retinitis Pigmentosa affecting human eyes still have no proper remedies in modern medicine. But certain remedial measures are mentioned in Ayurvedic Grandhas, particularly in Thaliyolas (palm leaves) which unfortunately have not been completely examined yet.

Generally Diabetic Retinopathy occurs a long time after the occurrence of diabetes. Usually both the eyes are involved. The main reason for this Roga is Prameha (Diabetics). If Prameha is not treated in time, the circulation through veins and arteries to the Netrapadalas will be decreased resulting in total loss of vision. In modern medical science, the retinal detachment and weakening of the optic nerve cause blindness. This, it can be see that Ayurveda's vision goes centuries back.

The connective tissues of the Retina are enlarged and rods and cones are weakened and finally degeneration occurs. Usually the disease starts in the outer layer of retina and gradually progress to the inner layer. If the degeneration is in the periphery, the full vision is diminished and when degeneration occurs in the macula, the central vision is diminished. The first symptom of this disease is night blindness.Retinitis Pigmentosa is found to be a genetic disease which is mostly seen in children, born from blood-related parents.

Disease gets started from choroids. This happens due to any trauma of the eyes or some diseased condition of retina. Blood vessels of the detached part of retina are small in size and dark in colour when eye is moved. Detachment may be complete or partial. Partial detachment may progress to complete detachment in certain cases.
