Our vision is to develop specialty consultation in each branch of Ayurveda. And to build Specialist Doctors to treat different diseases confidently through Ayurveda.
In Western medical Science, we see competent specialists in each disease like Diabetes, Cardiac ailments, Kidney disorders etc. Our vision is to develop such specialty consultants in each branch of Ayurveda and also in the areas like Diabetology, Cardiology, Neurology, Nephrology etc. to treat various critical ill-health conditions effectively & confidently through Ayurveda.
In this regard, we started a Research project on the burning issue – Diabetes, understanding & management through Ayurveda. Campus interviews were conducted in colleges of SDMCA, Hassan & GAMC, Bengaluru to select the suitable candidates.
Dr. Lakshmipriya M R, Ayurveda Graduate from SDMCA, Hassan was selected as the Research scholar. Dr. Niranjan Hegde headed the project as Research administrator.
She has done in-depth study of literatures / Ayurveda texts such as Charaka, Sushruta, Vagbhata as well as other auxiliary texts for the references to understand DIABETES in terms of Ayurveda. She has developed the traditional Ayurvedic way of urine analysis, categorizes so as to diagnose the condition, determine the prognosis and decide the treatment techniques. Trust is going o publish books written by her during the study which includes basics of Ayurveda & detail study & analysis.
She has already given talks about Ayurvedic management of Diabetes in Agnivesha Ayurveda Anushthana, Bengaluru & @ Sagara, Shimoga Dt. She is even visiting Sagara, Shimoga monthly on request by patients of Diabetes. Her analysis & treatments are showing positive results in many patients.

Call for Research scholars
Prakruthi Ayurveda Prathishtana® is inviting interested students for Research project for next year.
Interested candidates can mail their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Extensive research programs are being planned through qualified and highly dedicated group to study “Vrikshayurveda” (Ayurveda for plants) to understand interplant relations, diseases and how to manage them herbally, involving interested organic farming folks.
Ayurveda under the name of Vrikshaayurveda describes various aspects related to plants. Like human beings even plants have “tridoshas” which maintain their normalcy.
Ayurveda recognizes a diseased condition based on imbalance in dosha and depending upon the lodging of dosha in specific dhatus. But regarding the identification of dhatus or malas in plants it is still unclear. Hence, there is ample scope for research in vrikshaayurveda to maintain the normalcy of healthy plants and to treat them in their diseased condition according to the treatment principles adopted in humans.
Trust is in search of suitable candidates who are dedicated to work in this field. Interested candidates can contact us.
Planning of Research programs to conduct studies on scriptural and experimental knowledge by several experts and bring out simple yet effective combination drugs is under way. There are enumerable yogas described in Ayurvedic classics which are rarely being practiced by doctors today. Many traditional vaidyas use a variety of anubhuta yogas which are nowhere recorded. There is a need to re-validate and document these simple and effective yogas. Through clinical research our aim is to identify such yogas and test and document their efficacy in various health conditions.
Practitioners interested to carry out these kinds of clinical studies are welcome by the trust.
