, Thrissur Review

SNA Oushadhasala, Thrissur, established in the year 1920, is celebrating this year, its 90th year of devoted service to the society. It was Thrissur Thaikat Unni Mooss who established this institution at Kizhakkumpattukara, at his own residence, in a simple way. Being an Ayurvedic Medical Practitioner he wanted to prepare some of the medicines by himself, so that the patients are benefited from it. In those days it was only a service without expecting any returns.

Thrissur Thaikkattu Illom is one among the famous Ashtavaidya families in Kerala, whose contribution to the Ayurveda system of medicine is unquestionable. There were 18 such families in Kerala, originally. At present only seven families remain and only five of them are in the Ayurveda field.

Thrissur Thaikat Mooss was originally Pazhanellipurath Thaikat Mooss belonging to Pallipuram village in old Malabar district (presently in Malappuram district). The Mooss and his family had to leave that place as a punishment given to him by the then Samoothiri Raja, for treating the Kochi King Sakthan Thampuran. Mooss was the family doctor of King Samoothiri. The two kings were not in good terms during those days. That was the reason for sending him out of his country as a punishment. Naturally, the Kochi King extended all protections and provided landed properties and a house in his kingdom at Thrissur. Thus the family came to be known as Thrissur Thaikat Mooss.

Thaikat Narayanan Mooss, father of Unni Mooss, was a scholar not only in Ayurveda but in other branches of medicines, especially in Siddhavaidya system. He had published a book entitled, Sindhura Manjari on Siddha vaidya system. To his credit he had some literary works also.

When Unni Mooss initiated an Oushadhasala of his own in 1920, it was made a memorial to his father by naming it, “Sree Narayana Ayurveda Oushadhasala” (SNA).

S.N.A. Oushadhasala combines the knowledge and experiences of different Ashtavaidya families from time to time, which include Kuttanchery Mooss, Pulamanthole Mooss, Vayaskara Mooss and Alathiyur Nambi, in addition to the traditional knowledge of Pazhanellipurath Thaikat Mooss. This has helped SNA to formulate about 75 special Ayurvedic combinations of its own.

Together with the traditional quality checking, the modern quality control techniques are also guaranteed at SNA. Four hundred and odd medicines manufactured, following all prescribed norms under the GMP regulations, are distributed through agencies numbering more than five hundred within and outside Kerala. These medicines are exported to countries such as USA, European countries, Russia, Gulf countries, etc. Two manufacturing units, one at the HQ at Kizhakumpattukara and the other at Arimbur, function presently to cope up with the demand.

Several programmes including academic seminars have been planned as part of one year long 90th year celebrations of SNA Oushadhasala. As a special collaborative project an E-seminar programme has been taken up with Equals International of Australia. Students in Ayurveda from Italy do visit SNA almost every year in order to undergo training in Pancha Karma.
