Sri Krishna Pharmacy – Straight from Nature

According to Ayurveda, it is the imbalance of certain material substances present in the body called Doshas that causes illness. Therefore, all treatments in Ayurveda are done in the light of the three principal Doshas of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Diseases in Ayurveda are classified into two: Sadhya (Curable) and Asadhya (Incurable). Treatments for these diseases are also of two types, Shamana (Palliative therapy) and Shodana (Purification procedures). Shamana treatments are further classified into seven types based on the administration of internal and external medications and also by the regulation of food habits. Shodana treatments, meanwhile, deal with purification procedures like Panchakarma (vamana, virechana, vasthi, nasya and rakthamokshana).

There are also various methods of treatment among these two basic types. Some of the most common ones include Snehana, Swedana, Udwartana, Thalam, Thalapothichil, Pichu, Dhara, Lepanam, Tarpanam, and Dhoopanam.


Science to Good Health and a Good Life

Ayurveda is the science to good health and a good life (Ayu:+ Veda = Ayurveda). It is between 2000 to 5000 years old and has its earliest references in the Rig Veda- the first of the four Vedas. It emphasizes a holistic view of health, attempting to balance the Atma (Soul), Mana (Mind) and Indriya (Senses/ Body)..

Our History

Founded by Dr. T.M Lalitha, we at Sri Krishna Pharmacy can boast of over 100 years of ancestral knowledge and skill in the field of Ayurveda.

As the great granddaughter of Shekharan Vaidyan and Nanu Vaidyan- both of whom were acknowledged by the Travancore Royal family as great doctors- our founder has had access to the traditional knowledge of ‘Thaliolas’. She has used this knowledge to create our specialized products with unique ingredients and formulas.

Dr Lalitha also holds a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine (BAM) degree from the Thiruvanathapuram Ayurveda College, and has over 31 years of experience as an Ayurvedic doctor in the Government Sector.

During her service, she was the head of the medicine manufacturing department for 3 years at the Government Ayurveda College in Thiruvananthapuram. This role led to an in-depth knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine manufacturing, which, in turn, eventually led to the birth of the Sri Krishna Pharmacy.

The Pharmacy

Located near the Vellayini lake in Thiruvananthapuram, the pharmacy is equipped with the latest in manufacturing technology, including:

Apart from the latest technology, we also have a rain water harvesting system to make our production sustainable. Moreover, we have a proper waste management system with a decomposition pit for the residues that can be used as manure and a burner for the rest.

We also have a Quality Control Laboratory where all our herbs and medicines are checked for quality through various tests like those for pH, specific gravity, loss on drying, etc. Moreover, we maintain the highest standards of hygiene and have monitored environments with proper compartments for all the various processes to avoid cross contamination during production.
