The origin of Dr. Franklin's Panchakarma centre has been traced back up to 400 years where the forefathers of Dr. Franklin had been serving the natives with Ayurvedic medication. Dr. Franklin was born and brought up in this traditional Ayurvedic medical family. Academically qualified by completing degree and post graduate degree in the similar field, Dr.Franklin had been recruited by the Kerala Government and worked up to the post of Chief District Medical Officer. After his voluntarily retirement he joined as physiotherapist for Qatar football team and found that the Ayurveda is very effective for treating foreigners. Returning to India Dr.Franklin started an Ayurveda centre at Hotel Neptune in 1980. Domestic and international tourists experienced the healing touch of Ayurveda and its preventive and rejuvenating effects.
The dream for an exclusive Ayurveda centre has been accomplished by inaugurating "Dr. Franklin's Panchakarma Institute & Research Centre" in 1997 at Chowara. This centre is registered as 'Ribis Health Care Pvt Ltd' as per the Indian Company Act.
Under the directorship of Dr.Sony Joseph and vision of Dr. Franklin the centre is concentrating Ayurveda Treatments and has been running the same way with better facilities since its inception in 1997. With more than a decade in service it has earned the name of the one of the best Centres offering Authentic Ayurveda treatments in Kerala.
