She was conferred “Best Doctor Award” in December 2012 by Tamil Nadu M.G.R Medical University.

Dr. Girija has been practising ayurveda under the name Sanjeevani Ayurveda Yoga Centre for the past 22 years. With a firm conviction about the efficacy of applying Ayurveda ONLY for all chronic and acute cases , she heads a team of young Ayurvedic doctors. She is consultant to TamilNadu Government in health System Development Project. She has trained around 2500 Village Health Nurses in Maternal and Child Health using Ayurvedic Practices. For the sake of that, she developed a kit containing 50 drugs consisting Ayurveda and siddha medicines along with the manuals. Her strong voice against the use of episiotomy through the newsletters published by Sanjeevani Ayurveda Foundation reverberated in the Tamilnadu Public Health arena and hence its senseless usage is brought to a nil at the Institute of Public Health.
