Mr. BOBBY JOHN
Bobby john’s versatility and achievements were in a way unique, Bobby John who is born in March 1975, in kaduthuruthy, a beautiful village in kottayam district, which is a land of literacy.
After completing his pre university from the famous Deva matha college, Kuravalangad, which is a famous pilgrim place, he went to Chennai for doing aeronautical engineering. He is a man of full high thinking and ideas. After the completion of his course with distinction he joined in Hindustan aeronautical private limited in Bangalore.
But during these period his mind was full of greenery of herbs. Bobby john was a man, who is very much interest in sports. He is a regular Badminton Player and plays so many tournaments. Once, while he was playing a tournament, he met with an accident, and had a ligament tear of meniscus on his left knee and was admitted in a hospital. The Ortho surgeon advised him to undergo surgery and told that, if it is not a successful operation then he might go for an amputation. So, he and his parents refused to do the surgery and was in a dilemma what to do next. At that time one of his cousin, Dr.Lissamma, who is an ayurvedic doctor, advised him to try for ayurveda, which she had confident that he will get a cure. At first, they did not believe her words. But after a long discussion they decided to try ayurvedic treatments. It was quite a miracle, in the course of one month therapy he started to find the improvement, he was able to walk, move, play all those things which he was doing before the injury, now after 16 years he dint had any complaints regards his injury.
From that moment onwards he is fascinated towards the magical touch of ayurveda he decided to help the suffering peoples who are struggling without cure with other system of medicine.
Coming under the inspiring influence he decided to open an ayurvedic hospital by doing authentic and ethical ayurveda for the poor and needy. He quit from HAL and started a hospital named Kooplicat Ayurveda Hospital in 2001. Due to his keen interest in ayurveda, he extended his Ideas to do ayurveda in resorts for giving better treatments for the foreign peoples. He travelled all over kerala for knowing and giving better ayurveda for the needy. Besides, these he travelled so many countries like U.A.E, Singapore, Kuwait, Sreelanka, to understand and learn their traditional practice and tried to collaborate with our own ayurveda.
In 2006 he started an Ayurvedic clinic in Jumeirrah, Dubai with some Ayurvedic physicians and give them technical support for the wide –spreading of ayurveda in gulf countries.

In 2010 he started a new company in the name of Prithvi health care pvt ltd with the brand name Healing Earth Multi-specialty Ayurveda hospital.
After starting an Ayurveda Hospital, he realised that the need of Ayurveda medical care is important to all category of people, where the under privilege category is not affordable to take the benefits of Ayurveda treatment and medicine.
He also realised that the environment the water and the air is spoiled because of harmful chemicals and pollution where people are not having the knowledge to prevent the diseases which are occurring because of occupational and environmental hazards.
In India Ayurveda has not been established in such a way that the poor people can get the benefits of this wonderful science and he wanted to help the people to get rid of their medical problems safely and without any harmful effects.
Thinking this he planned to start a charitable trust in the name of Prithvi health care foundation to serve the underprivileged section of the society.

Education is one of the most important thing in one’s life. The urge of learning should always be appreciated. Education has many benefits and has positive impact in our life. An educated person is an asset for any country. In today’s world, human capital is considered the best national resource. On one hand, he can explore better opportunities for himself, and on the other hand, the entire nation would get benefited from his works.
Education produces citizens who are men of intellectual and moral integrity, who are neither fanatical nor cynical, but are public-spirited, tolerant and wise. Education aims at producing ideal human-beings. Education also produce well-cultured and wise men. It is often said that the children of today are the citizens of tomorrow. If children of today study hard to become good students, then they will surely become good citizens in future.

Chikungunya is an emerging, epidemic-prone, vector-borne disease. Socioeconomic factors and inadequacies in public health that facilitated the spread of this infection in the past continue to exist. Environmental factors and community behaviours play a significant role in the outbreak and spread of chikungunya. Heavy rains followed by stagnation of rain water in flower pots, broken and abandoned pots and utensils in and around the houses, abandoned vehicular tyres in the vicinity of human dwellings or workplaces or in any other container that allows accumulation and stagnation of water promote the breeding of mosquitoes of the Aedes family.
Villagers are more prone to get affected with this disease as they are not aware of its causes and complications. As a part, a free chikungunya awareness camp was held at Anekal by our Foundation. Awareness speech regarding chikungunya, its complications, symptoms, way of prevention and management etc. were given by eminent Ayurvedic scholars. Free medicated oils to get rid of mosquito bites, brochures and pamphlets regarding chikungunya and its complications etc. were freely distributed to the public who attended the camp.
