Department of Indian Systems of Medicine

India is home to various indigenous healthcare systems that have evolved through centuries of varied civilizations that flourished in the sub-continent. All these systems with a herbal base have remoulded themselves in the process of adapting to the needs of the local cultures and societies. Ayurveda is the prime among them followed by Yoga, Unani and Siddha systems. Homeopathy and Naturopathy, though brought to India by European travellers, got established in India with wide public acceptance. All these systems together have contributed towards healthcare in the society through a comprehensive co-existence. In Kerala, all these systems except Homeopathy operating in public healthcare sector are managed by the Department of Indian Systems of Medicine, Government of Kerala.
