Growth of TNH and Research Hospital
Triveni Nursing Home needs no introduction among the Ayurvedic fraternity. It has created a benchmark name in the hospital industry. It started functioning as an out- patient clinic under
Dr. K. A. Chandrasekharan Nair, at Kaithamukku, Thiruvananthapuram in 1978. Dr. Nair an exceptional physician retired as the Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant, and gained fame as specialist in Marma, Department of SalyaChikitsa, Government Ayurveda College, Thiruvananthapuram. He served there for more than 28 years. It was his dream to have a Multi-Specialty Ayurvedic Hospital in Kerala, known for its adoption of professional standards, both nationally and internationally.
In order to provide better treatment under the control of qualified staff, an inpatient unit was started at Kaithamukku in 1978. This was initially a 20 bedded hospital, providing all kinds of treatment as per Ayurvedic lines. A staff of three doctors and other qualified personnel assisted him then. Each year around 25000 needy patients attend our outpatient department out of which more than 3000 people get admitted for treatment. Its journey from the humblest beginning to its prestigious level is due to the hard work and enthusiasm of the staff and management.
Genuine Ayurvedic medicines prepared in strict compliance with the books of Pharmacology in Ayurveda is a must for speedy recovery of the patients. So a unit by name Triveni Pharmaceuticals now prepares all medicines, for the purpose of the treatment at Triveni Nursing Home. This unit is presently functioning at Sreekanteswaram, Trivandrum, Kerala.
As the need rose we have started another unit at Industrial Area Kochuveli.
TRIVENI RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF AYURVEDIC STUDIES
In keeping with our conviction that Research studies are essential for the progress of Science and our firm belief in the right direction towards advancement, we have form an institute called Triveni Reasearch Institute of Ayurvedic Studies to conduct scientific researches in the field of Ayurveda.
All this necessitated additional space requirements for which the nursing home was shifted to a new 6 floor building at Vanchiyoor, Opposite to the Collectorate, Vanchiyoor, Trivandrum, Kerala.

A Memory that's etched deeply in the journey
There are quite a few
- I recently attended the marriage of a girl Whom I was treating ever since she was born. She was born to a Cerebral palsy father. My father was treating him since 1975. He was not walking then, he got better, got a Govt. job, married & now I attended his daughter’s marriage. He took a lot of effort to convince the patient.
- A 7 month old pregnant lady was brought to me, she was desperately requesting to abort the baby. On enquiry I found as per the MRI the brain was not developed, It took a lot of effort for me to convince the parents. She was born, and repeated MRI also showed congenital anomaly.
During that time also the parents were reluctant to accept the baby. A lot of effort were taken to convince and now this smart girl attending her kindergarten and I attended her 6th Birthday.
I am personally of the opinion that what is extremely important and necessary in the present day medical scenario is an integrated approach using contemporary investigative methods which will lead to right diagnosis. Such a holistic approach will help in the fruitful and highly effective treatment through Ayurveda. With practically no toxic effects unlike of modern day medicines such an approach will give priority to the patients body as well as mind. This according to my belief is what Ayurveda can contribute today.
Your inspiration to choose Ayurveda
I got inspired from my father who was a well-known and dedicated Ayurveda physician. The immense relief I used to see daily on the faces of numerous persons treated by my father inspired me to choose this branch of medicine. Along with that even from my younger days I was able to realize the potentials of this Indian system of Medicine.
