Welcome to ADF
AyurVAlD Discovery Foundation (ADF) is the research division of AyurVAlD Hospitals, a chain of hospitals in India including Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala. We have served over 20,000 patients to date, across different socioeconomic strata, gender and disease profiles. The AyurVAlD Hospital at Domlur, Bangalore is India's first NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals) accredited Ayurveda hospital and, further, it is also accredited by the Kamataka State Government.
The AyurVAlD Discovery Foundation is a Bangalore based, non-profit organization. ADF has been functioning since the inception of AyurVAlD Hospitals, however it acquired its independent organization status in 2011, with eminent scientists from different specialties including Ayurveda, Modern Medicine, and Science background as its advisory board.
ADF focuses to establish Ayurveda as a mainstream system of medicine appropriately integrated with modern medicine. Insufficiency of evidence based data in the field of Ayurveda is the impetus for ADF's initiatives in clinical, observational as well as pharmaceutical research. Our physician as well as research team are ICH - GCP trained and compliant. All our research are in accordance with ICMR guidelines for human research and approved by an Independent Ethics Committee prior to commencement.
