More about the book
Sri Lanka’s long association with health and medical care is recorded in the Mahavamsa which credits King Devanampiyatissa with the construction of the World’s first Ayurvedic hospital in 247 BC. It also mentions that in the 3rd century BC, King Pandukabhaya built a medical facility which would have been very much similar to the maternity wards of today.
While traditional forms of medicine like Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani, which originate in India and Arabia are known to people, the more indigenous, Hela Veda or Deshiya Chikitsa with its roots in Sri Lanka’s centuries-old history is the least explored and known of these practices.
The Hela Veda Ath Potha (Handbook on Traditional Home Remedies) is a continuation of Dilmah Conservation's commitment to revive Sri Lanka's rich cultural and traditional heritage. The book comprises of 160 pages and has insightfull information on over 600 home remedies.
Dilmah Conservation was initiated in 2007 by Dilmah to incorporate environmental conservation efforts into the MJF Charitable Foundation, which focuses on social justice. Dilmah Conservation works towards the sustainable use of the environment in partnership with various governmental and non-governmental organisations. The pledge made by Dilmah founder Merrill J. Fernando to make business a matter of human service is deeply ingrained in the work carried out by Dilmah Conservation. For additional information visit our website at: www.dilmahconservation.org
