The history of Sri Lankan indigenous medicine (Hela Osu) dates back to the era of Great King Ravana of Sri Lanka and the ancient epics written by him are evident for it. Presently, Sri Lankan Ayurveda has become popular in the global context of alternative medicine being a nature based medical system in spite of the emergence of the concrete-jungle. In parallel to the development of conventional medical systems, seeking for the assistance of Ayurveda medicine to cure the illnesses in the human body has become a common practice.
This year, Siddhalepa Ayurveda also celebrated its land mark of 86th year as a company adding more value to its Ayurveda family background exceeding 200 years. The Initiative of the Kidney Specialist in Ayurveda, Dr Hendrick de Silva Hettigoda paved way Siddhalepa Ayurveda to heal the people of the world through its Ayurveda Hospital and Ayurveda Health Resort while producing a wide range Ayurveda supplements and medicines at its own premises.
Hence, the emphasis of conserving of this invaluable medical system while creating awareness for the benefit of people has become a requirement of time.Considering the above scenario and present situation of Sri Lanka, Siddhalepa Ayurveda is planning to conduct an Ayurveda conclave (Symposium) on 5th October 2019 at Siddhalepa Ayurveda Health Resort Wadduwa, Sri Lanka in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Health in Sri Lanka on the theme of “Healing Benefits of Ayurveda”
