  • The All-Party Parliament Group on Traditional Medicines organized a meeting at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium with the objective of devising a roadmap to legalize Ayurveda in Europe and to integrate it with their healthcare systems.
  • As a part of a distinguished group of Ayurveda luminaries, Dr. Partap Chauhan discussed with his European counterparts the key strengths of authentic Indian Ayurveda in resolving the world's need for a holistic healthcare blueprint that could potentially reduce dependency on synthetic medicines by leveraging the body's innate ability to heal itself, which by principle is the definition of Ayurveda.
  • In the context of the world's search for a holistic healthcare system, it must be noted that the Nobel Prizes for Medicine in 2016, 2017, and 2018 have gone to researches that looked inwards at the 'natural' aspects of human biology emphasizing the shift towards holism and naturalism vis-a-vis pursuits of symptomatic relief.
  • With an estimated market valuation of USD 2 billion in India alone, Ayurveda has witnessed exponential growth over the last few decades, and Jiva Ayurveda is uniquely positioned to collaborate strategically at international forums thanks to insights the organization has gained through a series of ground-breaking technological and evolutionary innovations which has strengthened the classical discipline of Ayurveda and enhanced its acceptability as a validated, data-driven and universal health science.
  • Ayurveda Day was first celebrated at the European Parliament on November 21, 2018
