Patients recover fast when kept in rooms with medicated coir mats

Treatment of ailments such as skin diseases, hypertension and rheumatoid complaints may become as simple as spreading ‘Medicated coir mats’ across the walls of a patient's room in the near future according to a recent// study. Students of the Government Ayurveda College in Thiruvananthapuram have found out that patients kept in such medicated rooms had a much significant cure rate when compared to those staying in normal rooms.

A group of 36 patients were involved in the study out of which 19 were kept in medicated rooms, the walls of which were covered with coir mats dyed in medicinal herbs. The bedspreads and pillows were also soaked in the same herbal preparations. The rest of the patients were admitted into a general ward.

All the patients were offered the same treatment (including medicines and food). Surprisingly, those kept in medicated rooms got cured faster. Patients with skin disease in medicated and general rooms were cured in two weeks and 4 weeks respectively. Rheumatic patients in the medicated rooms started getting better after a week, while those in the general ward took three weeks.

The six-month project, supported by the Kerala Government has fetched the college a sum of Rs 500,000. The research team has submitted a full-fledged project report to the Kerala government asking for financial support to prove the results with statistical evidence.

"This is certainly a path-breaking study which has found success and we expect the government to come to our help with financial support for a proposed study on a bigger group of patients," said K Ravi, former scientific advisor to the state government, who led the pilot study team.

The students have sought help from The Balarampuram Handloom Weavers Society (BHWS) for technical assistance regarding the production of medicated coir mats. The organization has also recently developed medicated clothes using herbs.

The health officials hope that t he Government would move in a positive inclination to help prove the result with authority and confidence. If proved right, it would mean an upliftment for the ailing coir industry.
