SYNOPSIS

ALTERNATIVE HOSPITAL

INTRODUCTION:

 Ayurveda is “The world’s most ancient and uniquely futuristic


healing, and good health”.
 Ayurveda means “The Science Of Life” and relates completely on
herbs and natural substances to heal. It is traditional Indian system
of medicine practiced all over the country, especially in rural areas.
 Almost 25-30% of the Ayurvedic centres are situated in Kerala.
The other prominent states being Tamil Nadu, Karnataka.
 It is now in practice for health care in European countries. The
word “Ayurveda” is a tatpurusha compound of the word “ayus”
meaning “life” or “life principle”, and the word “veda”, which
refers to a system of “knowledge”.
 According to Charaka Samhita, “life” itself is defined as the
“combination of the body, sense organs, mind and soul, the
factor responsible for preventing decay and death”.
 According to this perspective, Ayurveda is concerned with measures
to protect “ayus”, which includes healthy living along with
therapeutic measures that relate to physical, mental, social and
spiritual harmony.

Ayurveda is basically: HEALTH PROMOTIVE, PREVENTIVE,


CURATIVE AND NUTRITIVE (All self contained).

 Homeopathy - In this system, it is thought that a disease is caused


by an excess of a certain substance. The homeopathic method to
treat that disease is to give the patient very low doses of the
substance thought to cause it.
 Homeopathy is a relatively well-known system; there are even
pharmacies selling homeopathic preparations nowadays.

Siddha System of medicine is the most primitive medical system. This


system was formulated and established about more than 25,000 years back
by eminent powers called Siddhars and hence the name Siddha Medicine.

 The medicines were prepared by the various research work done by


the Siddhars on herbs, minerals and animals.
 The father of Siddha Medicine is the primordial Guru, Agasthiar.
 Siddha medical system doesn’t consider treatment and prevention
separately.

HISTORY:

Ayurvedic: The Indian System of Medicine

The word Ayurveda roughly translates as “The Science Of Life”. It


merges the two Sanskrit words ‘Ayu’ which means ‘life’ and ‘Vedas’
which means a combination of “Science, Knowledge and Wisdom”.

Although Ayurveda has been practiced in India for atleast 5,000


years, it has become a popular form of alternative medicine in the west
in more recent times. The theory behind Ayurvedic medicine is taken from
several sacred Indian Sanskrit texts written between 1500BC and 400AD
and it is thought be one of the oldest forms of healing system.

The Founder Of Homeopathy:

Homeopathy’s roots emerge from the findings, teachings and writins


of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). Hahnemann graduated from
medical school in 1779 and started his own medical practice. He soon
began his first homeopathic experiments in 1790, as a result of his
disillusionment with such common medical practices of the day as
Purging, Bloodletting and the use of Toxic chemicals.

The First U.S. Homeopathic School - Students of Hahnemann


founded the first homeopathic medical school in the United States in the
late 1800’s. It gained recognition because of its success in treating the
many disease epidemics rampant at the time - including scarle fever,
typhoid, cholera, and yellow fever. The school’s method of treatment
became very popular in the early 1900’s.

The Homeopathic Resurgence - Although the United States


experienced a dwindling interest in homeopathy in the 20th century, other
nations, including countries in Europe and Asia, were experiencing a steady
growth of homeopathic teachings and interest. Today, nearly all French
pharmacies sell homeopathic remedies and medicines; and homeopathy has
a particularly strong following in Russia, India, Switzerland, Mexico,
Germany, Netherlands, Italy, England, and South America.

Siddha Medicine:

The history of Native Indian Medical Sciences had originated back to


3000BC. The excavations done in the Sindhu Valley of Mohenjadaro and
Harappa revels an advanced system of hygiene and existence of Pre-Aryan
and Pre-Vedic culture or civilization. It also points over existence of a
Medical System which can be explained findings such as remains of horn
of deer, bitumen etc, found from these places.

These things have medicinal importance according to Siddha System


of medicine. Hence, it can be considered that Siddha system of
medicine is the most primordial one. It was only between 1200BC
700BC that the four Vedas were composed after the invasion of
Aryans.

AIM:

Aims to finding the root of a disease and then eradicating it completely


from the patient whereas Allopathy aims at giving patient an
instantaneous relief by destroying organisms that caused the disease but
it is not guaranteed that the disease is permanently cured. Alternative
Medicine is better than Allopathy.

OBJECTIVE:

To examine potential for alternatives to care in hospitals for acute


admissions, and to compare the decisions about these alternatives made by
clinicians with different backgrounds.

SCOPE:

Alternative Medicine is the fact that alternative doctors treat the


patients as individuals. It makes sure that is safer than standard health
treatments and usually works. To help the healthy person to maintain good
health and the diseased person to regain good health.

JUSTIFICATION:

Among users, 49% say they wanted to try a different approach first,
43% say they prefer such treatments over conventional medicine and 31%
say reduced cost was important.

 3 in 5 consumers prefer alternatives to traditional medicine, including


homeopathic, chiropractice, and naturopathic approaches and therapies.
 12% express strong preference for natural therapies over prescription
medications (same as in 2008).

Three theories that have been proposed to explain the use of alternative
medicine were tested:

a. DISSATISFACTION: Patients are dissatisfied with conventional


treatment because it has been ineffective, has produced adverse
effects, or is seen as impersonal, too technologically oriented, and/or
too costly.
b. NEED FOR PERSONAL CONTROL: Patients seek alternative
therapies because they see them as less authoritarian and more
empowering and as offering them more personal autonomy and
control over their health care decisions.
c. PHILISOPHICAL CONGURENCE: Alternative therapies are
attractive because they are seen as more compatible with patients
values, worldview, spiritual/religious philosophy, or beliefs regarding
the nature and meaning of helath and illness.

An illustrated in figure 1 & 2, Massage Therapy is one of the top two


services provided in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Additionally,
Accupuncture, guided imagery, relaxation training and therapeutic touch are
the top modalities in both outpatient and inpatient settings.

Project Type : Medical College & Hospitality.

Built-up area : 60,702.84 sq.m (15 acre).

Total Area : 72,843.41 sq.m (18 acre).

PROJET OUTLINE:

The site at Mettupalayam near Cheran Nagar (0.4 km distance), bus stand
at the distance of 1km, admeasures around 15 acres, lies on the residential
side offers beautiful views at the back of the site, calm and quite
atmosphere and is very suitable for Medical college & Hospital.

WHY METTUPALAYAM:
 Why to under take the project..

The main purpose of the project is satisfies the medical needs of people.

Many conventional hospitals in mettupalayam but there is no


Alternative hospital to use with personally. Peoples are dissatisfied with
conventional treatment because it has been ineffective, has produced
adverse effects, or is seen as impersonal, too technologically oriented,
and/or too costly. Peoples are visiting Coimbatore for the complementary
medicines.

These were my reasons for taking up a project for designing a


Medical college & Hospital to re-invent the existing systems to incorporate
not only the digital models but also the traditional styles.

 Justify with statistics..

Among users, 49% say they wanted to try a different approach first, 43%
say they prefer such treatments over conventional medicine and 31% say
reduced cost was important.

 How people are going to benefit..

Why do people use complementary and alternative medicine?

People use complementary and alternative medicine because:

 They wish to use treatments that are more natural and help them feel
more in control.

 They have persistent pain.

 They have concerns about the side – effects of medication.

 Their symptoms aren’t fully controlled by conventional medicine.

 Acceptance of project by local people

Local peoples accept this project because they need different approach to
solve their problems with the cost effective and with personal treatment.

2) IDENTIFICATION OF THE SITE SELECTION:


SITE & LOCATION:

Location : Kaleeswara Mill Road, Anupperpalayam, Ram Nagr, (Near


Brokee fields), Coimbatore.

Project Type : Medical College & Hospitality.

Built-up area : 60,702.84 sq.m (15 acre).

Total Area : 1,65,921.1 sq.m (41 acre).

Brooke Fields : 650m.

Central Bus stand : 1.6km.

Railway Station : 1.5 km.

Seethalakshmi Maternity Hospital : 700m.

ANALYSIS OF SITE:

10m wide road running at the rear side of the site along with trees with
its boundary. The condition of roads around the site was good.

There are few trees within the site, that needs to be cutdown for
construction purpose.

The topography of the site is plain with no undulations in it.

South west wind – South west wind blows during summers and contains
high moisture. Trees should be planted on this side to reduce the effect on
inhabitant.

West – Shading devices need on opening of building to reduce the galre


into structure. Sun literature brings smoothing role of warmth.

North east wind – North east wind blows during winters and contains little
moisture. Trees should be planted on this side to reduce the effect on
inhabitants.

East – Shading devices needed on building to reduce the glare into


structure. Sun light brings smoothing role of warmth.
CLIMATE:

Coimbatore has a pleasant climate due to the presence of forests to the north and
the cool winds blowing through the Palghat gap in the Western Ghats. the city
has a tropical wet and dry climate, with the wet season lasting from October to
December due to the northeast monsoon. The mean maximum temperature ranges
from 35.9 °C (97 °F) to 29.2 °C (85 °F) and the mean minimum temperature
ranges from 24.5 °C (76 °F) to 19.8 °C (68 °F). The highest temperature ever
recorded is 40.4 °C (105 °F) on May 5, 1983 while the lowest is 9.7 °C (49 °F) on
January 8, 1912.

VEGETATION:

The site is surrounded by neem, banyan, ashoka trees at its boundary, and
some of it present in middle of the site. Most of the trees should remain
at its place, as they are good for environment and they aid moisture. The
trees will also provide a healing environment to the patients the unwanted
trees could be removed from the site.
