IT Professionals Turn To Ayurveda

IT industry professionals who are prone to backaches, insomnia and eyesight problems are to be treated by Ayurveda//.

A detailed treatment protocol for treating software professionals would be outlined at the three day Global Summit on Ayurveda at Thrissur next month, said eminent ayurveda expert Neelakantan Mooss here Thursday.

Mooss, who belongs to the Ashtavaidyan Thaikkattu Mooss Vaidyaratnam Oushadhasala, said detailed examinations had been carried out among techies in the age group of 25 and 35 years.

"We have found that they suffer from computer vision syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, insomnia, lumbago and cervical spondylosis and we are coming out with a treatment protocol," he told reporters.

According to Mooss, big IT firms like Infosys and the Indian Institute of Management at Bangalore are planning to start ayurveda centres in their campus.

"We already have had talks with these institutions," he said.

He denied that his institution was going to commercialise ayurveda among the techies.

"Our hospital in Thrissur does not entertain clients, especially foreign tourists, just for giving massages. What we strictly follow is consultation-based treatment and not packaged ayurveda treatment protocols. For the techies we would devise a capsule form of treatment because they might be unable to spend three or four weeks for the treatment," he said.

Treatment protocols to be unveiled at the Global Summit include computer vision syndrome, which impairs vision and presents dryness in eyes, fatigue, headache and also carpal tunnel syndrome, which makes the wrists and hands numb. Lumbago or low back ache is another common ailment of the techies and also cervical spondylitis.

Vaidyaratnam Oushadhasala was set up in 1941 and has played a pioneering role in setting standards for the ayurveda industry in the state as well as in the country.
