Swamiji served society until his Maha Samadhi (July 15, 2008).
Sankarananda Swamiji was a renowned scholar and practitioner of Siddha medicine, which was passed on to him by the Guru disciple order. He treated ailments of many people as a service to mankind.


According to Santana dharma nature is the mother goddess and those who follow her rules and regulations in our life will be surely free from all type of diseases. The reason of all type of diseases are due to the Karma dosha, of this life or in the pre-incarnations. Nature Care is the best, inexpensive and easily available system of medicine, accepted all over the world. People all over the world folk to India, in search of the roots of traditionel medicines like SIDDHA and AYURVEDA, the wonderful science, originated and widely practiced throughout India from time immemorial. By the time the world realized the fact This is a gift of god to mankind, a system without side effect, a system which can cure from root cause, and a system which has treatments for all diseases, the precious knowledge acquired by our ancient Rishies, through their spiritual pursuit, and passed on to generations through GURU DISCIPLE ORDER. And also it helps to develop a motherly relationship with nature who protects living things. We have been treating various ailments in the concept of The pancha mahabhuta, or "five great elements"

Along with medicine poojas are also performed for the blessings of divine mother Mookambika.

Siddha Treatments

The word Siddha denotes one who has achieved some extraordinary powers (siddhi). This achievement was related to the discipline of mind and its superiority over body, and was accomplished through both yoga and medicine. Thus siddhars (practitioners of Siddha) became the symbols of psychosomatic perfection and so the Siddha medicine became a combination of medicine and yoga.

The father of Siddha Medicine or Siddha Vaidyam is the primordial Guru,Agasthiyar. There are also 18 prime Siddhars who are the followers of the primordial Guru, contributed their valuable knowledge and experiences in this field.

Siddha system of medicine is most ancient and spiritually enriched one. Medicines are formulated and prepared by the Siddhars thousands of years ago after undergoing various research work on flora, fauna and the rich mineral resources of Mother Earth. The medicines are enriched with prayers and power which not only cures the disease but also provides peace to the mind and spirituality to the soul. Just like medicines work for the physical body, mind should be kept peaceful through prayers and meditation.

Today, the treatment like physiotherapy, panchakarmam, marmam, acupressure, naturopathy and yoga are well known separately but it can be confirmed that all these are evolved from Siddha system of Medicine or Siddham. These methods are present in this single system of medicine. Siddha system emphasizes not only a healthy body but a peaceful mind and pure soul. Hence, it is unique when compared to any other medical system.When the methods of treatment taken into account, then Siddha system holds the 8 unique methods of diagnosis. One among these 8 method isNaadi. A Siddha physician keenly observes the naadi before starting any treatment. Hence unlike other system of medicines there does not exist only a symptomatic treatment in Siddha. A strong relationship develops between the patient and physician. The physician not only heals the disease of the patient through medicines but also provides an assurance to his mind and prays for the soul. For example, in a patient suffering from psoriasis, medicines are not enough as stress is an aggravating factor of the the disease. So, it is only possible by a Siddha physician to pacify the disturbed mind of the patient by the spiritual counseling.

In Siddha medicine the use of metals and minerals are more predominant in comparison to other Indian traditional medicine systems. In the usage of metals, minerals and other chemicals, this system was far more advanced than Ayurveda. The use of more metals and chemicals was justified by the fact that to preserve the body from decomposing materials, meterials that do not decompose easily should be used. The other reason perhaps was that the south Indian rivers were not perennial and herbs were not available all through the year.

At Shankara Asram the emphasis is on Siddha treatment, medicines are prepared at the Ashram. Sudheer Swami keeps the lineage of this knowledge transmitted through a generation of great Saints by treating people for their ailments and consulting their difficulties.

Our Treatments - Specialisations

Treatment for Infertility

We start Infertility treatment begining with Diet & Lifestyle Advice finding root cause of infertility. The importance of a positive attitude is essential when trying to get pregnant.

According to Ayurveda, conception takes place due to healthy sperm, a healthy ovum, and a healthy uterus. For both men and women, reproductive health depends on the health of the shukra dhatu, or reproductive tissue. In women the shukra tissue creates the ovum as part of the monthly cycle, and in men the semen is formed due to sexual stimulation. The shukra tissue itself is created as part of a long chain of metabolic transformations, starting with the digestion of food and including the transformation of food to nutrient fluid, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow and finally, to shukra tissue.

Healthy shukra tissue, then, according to ayurveda, depends on the health of all the other tissues (dhatus) in the body.

Shukra has a dual function, not only producing the sperm and ovum but also ojas, the finest product of digestion. Ojas creates vigor, bliss, lightness, stamina, immunity, luster in the skin, sparkle in the eyes, and clarity of mind. Ojas is vital to the health and happiness of everyone. Anyone who wants to enhance mental clarity, immunity, and spiritual well-being will find these recommendations useful, because they enhance the shukra tissue and thus enhance ojas.

We uses the following methods to treat Infertility.

Treatment for Diabetes Mellitus

The ancient science of Ayurveda/Siddha has discussed diabetes at length thousands of years ago. The knowledge and effectiveness of diagnosis can be understood by the fact that Diabetes (madhumeha) has been classified into 20 Types. It also describes in detail about the treatment methodologies.

At Sankara Ashram we follow the below Treatment Methodologies :-

Rasayana : Vijaysar rejuvenates each and every cell of the body.

Raktasodhana : Vijaysar purifies the blood and removes all toxins from it.

Krimirogahar (Antihelmenthic) : Vijaysar is very useful in disease which originate from external causes like infection, worm infestation etc.

Pramehaghna : Vijaysar is useful in all disease which involve discoloration of urine including diabetes (Madhumeha).

Treatment for Psoriasis

Many basic Ayurvedic texts have explained skin diseases, which resembles Psoriasis. According these references, Psoriasis can be considered as the vitiation of Vata and Kapha. (Two of the basic energies/humors, which maintains our body equilibrium) Accumulation of low potency poisons (Dooshi vishas), are the basic pathological changes taking place in the system. Irregular food habits, consumption of foodstuffs that cannot be eaten together (Eg: diary products with fish), excessive intake of yogurt, black gram, seafood, sour and salted items etc can activate the pathogenesis. Alcohol and tobacco consumption will act as a catalyst here. Ayurveda do emphasize on the effect of stress in the pathogenesis of Psoriasis.

Current schedule, comprising various treatment aspects of Ayurveda is aiming at a better control of Psoriasis. This includes internal and external medications purely of plant origin. Rough out line of this schedule is as follows.

(i) Consumption of medicated ghee, considering the Dosha type of the Psoriasis and the person, for 5 to 7 days.

(ii) Detoxifying, by inducing vomiting (Vamana) and purgation (Virechana). This is followed by medicated buttermilk dripping overhead (Dahara) and pasting the entire body with a paste of medicines and mud.

(iii) Basthies (medicated enemas) are being done for 8 days and internal medicines like herbal concoctions; medicated ghee has to be consumed for at least 90 days.

Treatment for Asthma

Every now and then we come across patients of Asthma seeking Ayurvedic treatment and advice. This is because of the versatile approach of Ayurveda to root cause of the problem and it's belief in preventing the disease rather than treating it.
Ayurvedic Concept : In Ayurveda, Asthma is known as 'Swas Roga'

The treatment of asthma consists in the employment of remedies to allay the paroxysms, and in the adoption of measures likely to prevent the recurrence. According to Ayurveda, the asthma of recent origin can be treated effectively but if it becomes chronic, it can only be managed.

At Sankara Ashram we follow a patient specific approch to treatment and management of Atsma. This include Rasayana and Choorna treatment along with diet control.

Yoga is very effective in controlling Asthma, we give yoga practice session specific to patient.


The general line of Ayurveda and Siddha treatments for Arthritis include medications, Abhyanga, (Massage), Swedana (Fomentation), proper diet, exercises, yoga, rest and relaxations.

According to Ayurveda mostly pains are caused by the aggravation of vata (air) dosha. Arthritis is a condition which is caused by accumulation of ama and aggravation of vata. (Ama is a toxic by-product of improper digestion. )This ama circulates in the whole body and deposits or gets collected at the sites which are weaker. When it deposits in the joints and at the same time there is aggravation of vata , it results in a disease called amavata. This amavata is arthritis.

At Sankarasram we treat Arthritis by a combination of Ayurvedic Medicine,body massage with sesame oil and dietery controls.

Naga Dosha parihara pooja ( Remedies mantras/rituals for 'Naga Dosha' )

Vedic Astrology gives multiple reasons why 'Naga dosha' is formed in a horoscope. Main reasons are occult or black magic activities done by ancestors and self made mistakes in previous lives. Even killing a unborn child (abortion) will have same effect.
We live in a time period where we have a large impact upon the planet. It is important that the remedies we perform have a large impact. There are various rituals performed for nāga doṣas. Understanding the reason for those rituals, we can understand modern alternatives that have a huge impact one once personal life as well as for the whole planet.

Traces of tree and serpent worship have been found in all cultures across the globe. The snake, its connotations and powers has been propitiated or worshipped throughout time. This is a basic aspect of the collective human consciousness. Taking the collective understanding of the snake in various cultures and metaphoric interpretation of sarpas and nāgas we can gain a deeper understanding of nāga doṣa and sarpa-bādhaka.

The fourth house remedial measures, as well as the causes for sarpa-bādhaka given by Harihara, show the link between the sacred groves and the nāgas. When Rāhu is in the fourth house and associated with the bādhakeśa then the installation of a citra kūṭa stone is indicated. A citra kūṭa is an image of a nāga or the nāga king which is placed by a large tree or in a sacred grove (sarpa kavu) where the sarpas/nāgas are said to live. These groves were often in the south-western direction. Traditionally large trees were always given space and worshiped. They were a habitat for animals, birds and insects (and ethereal beings)- an entire ecosystem alone. The sacred groves were parts of large properties or temples that were left undisturbed. Often they were perennial water sources. They relate in some way to modern day nature reserves, or watersheds. The ensuing remedies also relate to environmental remediation.

Rāhu in his Viṣṇu form is the one who saves the earth. In the negative, Rāhu becomes disturbed when one either destroys the environment or has destroyed natural habitat in a past life. The nāgas and sarpas can be seen as nature energies, and as the protectors of the nature spirits in the natural environments. Nature is a powerful force with many faces that needs to be respected. Propitiation of the nāgas is often seen as snake worship (ophiolatry).

'Naga Dosha' are expressed in once life as

1) On children: Late marriages or not getting married.
2) Misunderstandings between couples.
3) Cancellation of marriages just before days.
4) Divorce in couples.
5) Children grow up to be useless
6) Multiple abortions.
7) Baby dies after delivery.
8) Mentally retarted children are born.
As remedies to Naga Dosha, at Sankarasharam Naga Pooja is performed at 'Naga Idols' installed at Sankara ashram along with other rituals.
