Ayurveda- Need a quality control

Updated: May 22, 2019

´´The growing popularity of ayurveda is indeed gratifying to a lover of this ancient science. But what makes unhappy, rather worries, is the fact that ayurveda is often introduced and presented in fragments outside India. Ayurveda should be seen as a single entity...´´ Ayurveda is used as massages in wellness spa and hotel. Even in Barbour shops!´´The booming market in ayurveda in the West has been discovered by many people. Health establishments are being opened under the name of ayurveda which actually have nothing to do with the real practice of ayurveda by Europeans who were allowed to observe during a 2-3 month course in India and have received a certificate of participation. These occur only within the wellness branch, since in Europe there are hardly any possibilities to do a serious training as an ayurvedic therapist, not to mention an ayurvedic doctor...The Indian Government has been observing this development with great concern and feels itself forced to establish a proper direction for development, in order to prevent misuse or improper treatments, since in the present situation ayurveda could quickly be given a bad reputation.´´ Fundamentally, for cooperation to occur, Ayurveda medicine fundamental principles, methods, etc. need to be defined, and on that basis natural medicine needs to develop/re-establish its own research method (the dynamic processual balance on the basis of the phenomena of the processes), according to which it should be developed and examined. To define Ayurveda medicine fundamental principles, etc., there needs to be dialog between the less and more advanced natural medicine forms, the advanced forms having the capacity to clarify the fundamental nature of natural medicine and its relationship to and differences with respect to modern science. The hidden secrets of Ayurveda and new research methodologies and how to incorporate Ayurveda in doctors practice should be clearly expalianed . The basic treatment protocols that can be adopted for multiple sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and skin Diseases are well eloborated.
