Traditional medicine had been quite effective here in kerala.Even our taking some serious steps to promote & preserve valuable hundreds of yr old treatment methods.Over the yrs problem had been to trust whom,every where you will find some guys practising traditional methods & without much history to tell.but things changed drastically in last 4-5 yrs.Nowadays only those successive generations of genuine practitioners of old time left in the field.Since the recession not much money coming into either tourism sector or to the ayurvedic treatment centre which also a part of tourism business.When they saw money flow starts diminishing they left treatment centres.Only few left in the remote areas of Kerala,where transportation itself a big question mark,patient will have to follow the routine for the prescribed period ,won't cost much,Recently few youngsters from a tribal a well known community started a society with an intention to bring their medicines & practitioners to the mainstream.They are even planning to take patents on their cancer treatment method.If U R interested to know more you may contact them on
