Infective Hepatitis – Mumbai & Kerala
In 1988, 1000s were affected by jaundice in Kerala. At that time, Dr.R.Raghavan was practicing at Kottayam Medical College as a Senior Resident. He volunteered his Ayurvedic expertise to treat jaundice patients in Hepatic Coma, which had no remedy in Modern Medication. Facing oppositions from hospital authorities, who refused to permit administration of Ayurvedic treatment in the modern medicine hospital , he boldly transferred 15 patients (including a pregnant woman) to his residence and saved all their lives.
In 1978, physicians from Swami Dathathreya’s ashram provided medical aid to jaundice patients in Mumbai.
