Achuthanandan on ‘leave’ for ayurveda therapyAugust 4th, 2010 - 2:46 pm ICT by IANS
Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 4 (IANS) Kerala’s Communist Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan has taken an official break from work to undergo a week-long ayurveda rejuvenation therapy.
An official source said that for the next one week, the 86-year-old will remain indoors as a team of ayurveda doctors from the famed Kottakal Arya Vaidya Sala will treat him at his official residence here.
“The Wednesday weekly cabinet meeting is being held at his residence instead of the secretariat,” the official said, requesting anonymity.
The media briefing by the chief minister will now take place at 5 p.m. - also at his residence.
It is believed that ayurvedic treatment taken during monsoon boosts immunity.
Defence Minister A.K. Antony used to undergo ayurveda therapy every monsoon in 2001-04 when he was the Kerala chief minister.
Ayurveda believes in eliminating toxic imbalances from the body and thus lead to better health.
