Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Health Minister VS Sivakumar on Tuesday asked doctors from the Government Ayurveda College in Thiruvanthapuram if Ayurveda can heal injured Brazilian soccer star Neymar, who has a great fan following in Kerala.

The chief minister contacted the doctors as the Kerala Football Association asked the government to see if Ayurveda can cure him or not.

Sivakumar confirmed the news and said the government has asked Government Ayurveda College authorities to prepare a report on the possibilities of treating Neymar in Kerala and submit it on July 9.

Dr PK Ashok, the principal of Government Ayurveda College, said that CM Chandy and the health minister had asked for the report by Wednesday. "We have already prepared a small protocol treatment report  depending on the facts available on internet regarding Neymer's injury. We will be submitting it to the government by Wednesday evening," said Dr. Ashok.

Dr PM Warrier of Kottakal Arya Vaidya Sala, a famous Ayurveda treatment centre in Kerala, said Ayurveda is very effective for spinal injuries. He said the hospital has treated several people who had injuries in spine in the past and a vast majority of them had recovered.

It is learnt that Kerala government is planning to inform Brazilian football authorities about the Ayurveda remedies and treatment methods available in the state which could cure Neymar's injury as soon as it receives the report.
