Thiruvananthapuram: Nims Medicity, a multi-speciality hospital at Neyyattinkara, has started an Ayurveda centre with emphasis on the treatment of brain tumour and cancer.

Inaugurating the centre on Tuesday, Health Minister P.K. Sreemathy pointed out that there was the need to adopt a holistic approach and to integrate the positive aspects of various systems of medicine for the welfare of people.

At the helm

The Ayurveda centre will be headed by Kunhalan Gurukkal of the Changampally family of Thirunavaya in Malappuram district, which has a long tradition of rendering Ayurveda and Marmani treatments.

The family has been using modern and traditional diagnostic methods for treatment.
