Besides the routine teaching, training and the clinical activities being carried out by the fore stated 14 departments of the college, various other projects, centers and activities, boosting the civic sense in a student, are being carried out by the college time and again. A brief glimpse of the activities may be presented as under:-
1. Shree Gulabkunverba Ayurved College and Chikitsalaya organizes free diagnostic and managemental camps in various parts of the city and the neighboring areas where in the experts of the institution render their services for the betterment of the society. Large areas of the Jamnagar district have been covered so far through such camps and a huge bulk of people has been its beneficiaries.
2. To help and support the rural population dwelling in the remote interiors of Jamnagar District through Ayurveda, the institution has started this project. Under which, the learned physicians and other staff members explore the remote interiors of the district in an ambulance taking with them, the required instruments and equipments as well as medicines to be provided free of cost to the needy.
3. Diabetes mellitus – a silent killer is a disease that has kept on increasing its spread in every sector of society at an alarming rate throughout the world today. It is a lifestyle generated disorder. As such, there is a no sure shot remedy for the disease except to consume the doses of insulin either orally or through injectables, according to the modern medical science. In this scenario, in order to help the diabetics through the classical remedial measures of Ayurved and probing into the factors of disease and its management with a research point of view, separate diabetic clinic has been started in the Chikitsalaya of Shree Gulabkunverba Ayurved Mahavidyalaya.
4. Occurrence of psycho physiological stress is a boon given by today’s jet age lifestyle and out of this, the care of psyche is very essential. Seeing this requirement, Shree Gulabkunverba Ayurved Chikitsalaya has started a Manoswasthya Kendra (Mental Health Care Centre) which looks after the management of psychological health through classical Ayurvedic remedies along with the utilization of Hypnotherapy – a unique combination.
5. Ancient technique of treating the patients through application of leeches is a unique therapy of Ayurved and to promote and propagate this technique for the betterment of the ailing mankind, a leech therapy unit has been started at Shree Gulabkunverba Ayurved Chikitsalaya under the supervision and control of the Shalya Dept. at the hospital. There, the patients of chronic skin disorders are treated with good results.
6. Spiritual Healing is one of the foremost types of treatment suggested by Ayurved classes with the name as Daivavyapashraya Chikitsa, keeping in mind the subtler reasons of disease production. Gradually, the awareness about this concept is declining in the society and as such, despite of ample of medications, the cure remains out of reach. To partially fulfill the lacuna of an absence of such a technique of disease management, Swasthavrutta-Yoga-Nisargopachara Department of Shree Gulabkunverba Ayurved College has started a Daivavyapashraya Chikitsa Kendra in the department itself with a motto to help to conquer the ailments of the people through a spiritual way.
7. Astrology has been regarded to be an important allied science to be known by an Ayurvedic practitioner and some texts have emphasized the utility of Jyotish or Astrology for deciding the prognosis and the line of treatment as well. Department of Kaya Chikitsa has started this center at the Chikitsalaya where a research based work on Ayurved and its’ inter relationship with the science of Astrology is being carried out.
8. The first motto of Ayurved “To Maintain the Health of the Healthy” is usually overlooked in general. The department of Swasthavrutta – Yoga – Nisargopachara has started this activity to counsel and guide the healthy people for proper planning of their lifestyle and diet according to their needs, based on the classical references of Ayurved. Similarly, planning of diet and lifestyle of the patients as per the “Pathya Apathya” for their disease shall also be done by this center as per the need.
9. Children are most important and vulnerable part of our society. Due to lack of parental education and awareness on health, particularly in underdeveloped areas, children suffer from many diseases which otherwise may be controlled with minimum care and knowledge of hygiene. In collaboration with an NGO working in such underdeveloped area, a special Child Care Camp has been started which works on every fortnight, medical evaluation and treatment are given freely to all the needy children here.
10. School children, especially in their adolescence, are needed to be properly counseled and guided regarding the values of healthy and moral living which would benefit their future life. This particular project based on the lecture – demonstration method shall be carried out at all the schools of Jamnagar and surroundings in the due course of time, starting with few schools of selection.
11. Today, people have started demanding the solutions of their health problems as per the Ayurvedic management, because of the increasing popularity of Ayurved in India & abroad. Especially, subjects like Panchakarma, Shalya Tantra etc. are highly popular in society. It is duty of Ayurvedic practitioners to promote and propagate these specialties in appropriate form. They might have certain doubts regarding these subjects or they might have loosened the practice. So, they need to be reoriented with the knowledge & practice of the subject of their interest. To cop up with this condition, this college has planned different short term certificate courses for refreshment of the existing knowledge of Ayurvedic practitioners and to reorient them in the subject of their interest. Initially, it has been planned to have three such courses i.e. “Certificate course in Panchakarma”, “Certificate course in Shalya Tantra” & “Certificate course in Therapeutic Health Care” under three departments i.e. Panchakarma, Shalya Tantra and Swasthavrutta Yoga Nisargopachara. The latter has prepared and proposed two more courses, out of which one is meant for the foreigners and the other is meant for the general public (other than medical graduates) to increase the knowledge of the people interested in Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Dietetics along with tips towards health consciousness.
