Disease management has been well developed in the United States. Until recently the health care system focused on disease management covered by Insurance rather than prevention and health promotion. The cost of health care is exorbitant in the west and many people are not able to afford health care.

Director's Message

Ayurveda is the science of life where the knowledge of both Hita and Ahita Ayu, Sukha and Dukha Ayu, wholesome and unwholesome things in relation to life and the Pramana of life are explained.

The doctrine of Ayurveda is not exactly meant only for the medical practitioners. Its principles and practices can be learnt even from the peasants also. Our Grandmothers and cowherds knew the uses of many drugs for common problems, simple formulations, healthy food preparations and many more such things which were according to the principles of Ayurveda. Slowly we see that such knowledge and practices are declining from the society and even though we think that we are protecting the science. But in reality seldom we remember that it is the same science which has given us material prosperity and self respect including health. So we all have a duty toward Ayurveda which has provided everything to us we need.

Ayurveda, the great tradition has been kept alive by the great and selfless Vaidyas of past. Most of them lived a very simple and traditional life envisaged in the scriptures. Through their words and action they could inspire people around them to practice Ayurveda... »»
